A disturbing friendship
"Mic" by Bridge Sebastian

I first met Mic when I worked in the local garage. He worked in the office above the garage selling fruit machines. We became good friends and he moved in with my boyfriend and I. I first noticed how violent his temper was when I was invited to a wedding. My boyfriend was working so I took Mic with me. After a few drinks he started a violent altercation with one of the guests. It was only by flirting with him that I managed to distract him.
Several nights later he came home in a terrible state. He pulled a was of notes out of his wallet and more from his jacket pockets.
" Money is not worth it. It means nothing compared to a human life. However much you despite someone."
He took the notes and started trying to tear them up and flush them down the toilet.
" It may not mean much to you mate but it means a lot to me" my boyfriend Tony said gathering up the notes.
We calmed him down, but the next morning he was gone.
When we turned on the news we heard that a man called Setting, who owned a fruit machine company had been murdered.
The police came and asked me if I knew who owned the black Jaguar parked outside I said Mic but I did not know where he had gone.
Later that year I received a letter with no address on it from Mic.
" I made it to Canada and am going to marry the vicar's daughter. "
I suppose he got away with it. The heavy price he had to pay was never to see his family or return to England again.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
