Banksters 50: Transcendent

But the bouncer did. He heard the difference, and when he pulled the curtain back he saw the difference, too. He threw Dylan against the far wall, and shoved Ryan to the floor, where he stomped on his chest. Before either Morgan could even ask a… more »

Banksters 49: Succeed

The office was feeling decimated. Julee cleaned out her desk on her way out earlier- she wasn't coming back. George didn’t show up, despite reclaiming his old office the day before, though I’d heard him on the radio this morning categorically denying… more »

Banksters 48: Who’s Screwing Who

I called Julee into my office. “Erection?” she asked. “Yep. Even if you’re doing a racist Chinese impersonation, you’re still right- though it’s just in poor taste. But how'd you know?” “I have a sixth sense about these things. Plus, anymore, when… more »

Banksters 47: After the Fall

Grey was in my office first thing. “You know, you could have told me you were going to push him out a window. Would have saved me a lot of time, and a hell of a lot of swallowing.” “That makes this funnier. But I hadn’t been planning on that part. I… more »

Banksters 46: Good & Clean

“We’re still on for tonight?” Julee asked, standing up straight. “Yep.” “So I shouldn’t try to unsex my hair, then?” “Looks beautiful the way it is.” “And my rumpled clothes?” “Admittedly less beautiful, but it’s the look we’re going for.”… more »

Banksters 45: Arousal

When I got back to the car, Grey didn't look up from her game. “Teryl?” she asked. “It's taken care of. The single-mindedness is actually even less sexy than you'd think.” “Not sure why you'd think I care. I'm not here to sexually arouse you.” “No,… more »

Banksters 44: Best Laid Plans

It was lunchtime, and I still hadn't been into the office. I had Julee meet us somewhere- us being myself and Janet. “Ms. Simmes. This is Julee Hendricks. She's going to be writing up an expose on your behalf about Richard's... we'll call them fiscal… more »

Banksters 43: Ultimatum

Petra did cook, and none of it looked like baby poop. But she barely made eye contract through the entire meal, which was made even harder by the fact that we were eating around a small, circular, black glass table in my cramped little breakfast nook.… more »

Banksters 42: Pregnant Pauses

  I went back to work. There was still so much left to do to prepare. Until Julee rapped on my door. She let herself in. “Morning,” I said. “Afternoon,” she corrected me. I checked my watch, and she was right. “Son of a bitch. Time flies when you’re… more »

Banksters 41: Adversaries

So many adversaries, so little time.   Alice was a strange choice for the coup. Looking into the board members, only one of them had been aggressively buying up company stocks: Rob Kierkegaard.   Rob was the reason Alice was CAO. At the time, she… more »

Banksters 40: Proposals

Grey called me back around 4. “I couldn’t find you, so I had to hire a whore.”   “You couldn’t masturbate, like a normal person?”    “George Morgan is eyeing a political run. And what does every politician need on his arm?”   “A patrician matron t… more »

Banksters 39: Caprica

Day 39:   Richard liked uncomfortable silence. He got to inflate himself, make himself look smarter and more important when he didn't open up his mouth. Of course, if you keep your mouth shut forever, people will begin to suspect you're a bigger idio… more »

Banksters 38: Lesbos

I drove myself home, and was just getting undressed when my phone rang. It was Elizabeth Grey. I was surprised she was still using the same phone number she'd given me earlier. “That thing you were going to do for me...”   “That thing has a name: Tery… more »

Banksters 37: Pressure

I walked out of my office to Petra's desk, putting on my very serious face. “I really hate to do this to you again so soon after the last time…”   “Take me to lunch?” she guessed, hopefully.   “No, I’d be happy to do that. But I need you to pack up… more »

Banksters 36: Strategy

Piss tests don't usually get back the next day; the overnight job cost extra. Which might have meant Richard just didn't want to deal with the suspense.   His secretary called my cell on my way into work. “Mr. Morgan would like to see you first thing… more »
