AUTHORS NOTE: Just as a small exercise for my own mind, I will attempt to add a chapter every other day.
Barack Obama entered the Oval office, “It’s good to be back”, he thought.
The man behind the desk rose to greet him, with a wide smile and a proffered hand. “B! It’s great to see you again!”
Obama winced inwardly as he was not a fan of nicknames. He preferred proper titles, but he smiled in return and shook the hand.
“Nice to see you too Mittens. I’d like to say it has been a long time no see, but it really hasn’t has it?” That made him feel a bit better
as a slight frown appeared on Romney’s face.
“C’mon man, you know I hate that name,” Romney said.
“Then address me by mine as well…I figured that since we were compatriots, that a slight ribbing in return wouldn’t offend you.” Barack
smiled and put his hand on Romneys shoulder directing him back toward his chair. “Adding insult to injury.” he thought with an inner grin. “Have
Barack heard a chuckle and looked over his shoulder. “George? What are you doing here?” He looked back at Romney. “Well this explains why I
came in through the back door…can’t say I’m used to that. What’s going on?”
Bush walked over to the mini fridge and opened it. “Ya want a beer, Barack? They still make that stuff you like.”
“I thought you didn’t drink anymore George?” This sent alarm bells ringing in his head. “What’s going on?” He looked at Romney who looked
more concerned than usual.
“We want to stage a coup”. He said flatly. “Have a seat please.”
Barack sat down perplexed. “Who do you want to overthrow? Iran? Venezuela? We have people that do that sort of thing, why would you need my
Bush started chuckling again, “Oh, it’s a lot bigger than that.”
Obama cocked an eyebrow and Romney pointed at a chair. “George, sit down, this is a serious matter!”
Bush sat down but still had his trademark smirk on his face. “Hell, I know this is a serious matter, but I find the irony priceless. As a matter of
“Death of our citizens is not hilarious, George and you know it.” Romneys face did not betray the anger he felt. “This is serious business and
will have lasting repercussions.”
The smirk fell from Bush’s face as he crossed the room and leaned on the POTUS desk and jabbed a finger in Romneys face. “Ya don’t think I know
that. I’m talking about the bigger picture, not the casualties of what we are thinking about implementing. You talk about repercussions? They are a
whole lot far reaching than I think you have given it thought too.”
Barack thought he would get whip-lash looking between the two arguing. “What the hell is going on?” he thought, “What am I not seeing here?”
He stood up himself and declared, “Just what the hell are you two talking about?”
George turned around and leaned back on the desk while taking another swig of his beer. He looked Barack in the eye and said, “The PACT, we want to
overthrow the PACT. Enough is enough…it’s time to move forward. We would like you on board.”
Barack sat back down stunned. “You want to overthrow the PACT”, he thought, “You want to overthrow the very people that put everyone of us in
this office? That’s insane.” At that point he made his thoughts verbal, but added, “Really? Do you even remotely think it is possible? Is anyone
else on board with this insane idea?”
Romney smiled at him. “Yes, we have quite a few actually.”
