"Hey baby," a balding redheaded male walked up to the table.. His torn blue Jeans and Walmart Vader shirt went well with his untied boots, black
"Hang on Clark," the lady he was addressing gave him a kiss back. Turning back to her district manager, "So what are we going to do, Simone?"
Simone sighed and looked at the Assistant Manager and Store manager. Thinking for a moment, "We will find out in about an hour which stores are being
closed. Noel, Mia. The market completely Crashing today means they will probably fire a lot of people. My guess is that. " Simone Cell phone goes off
and she answers it. She gets up and walks away from the Table, mouthing it was corporate.
Mia looks to her boyfriend, "I am so glad we got the back pay from the VA before this. the News is talking about cutting Social Security and VA
compensations. We may be living off the money."
"About that baby, I got good news and bad news.."
The waiter walks up, "Sir, what would you like?"
Reading the name tag, "Jack. I'll start with a bottle of Jack oddly enough, Bring the wine menu out here for the ladies." He reaches into his pants
and pulls out a wad of hundreds. He hands two to the waiter, "Make sure I get the BOTTLE and I want a glass of ice, an empty glass, and a glass of
coke no ice. Start me a line of cred with the bar, the two bills are your tip. I am probably about to be in the dog house."
Taking the two hundreds, "Yes Sir coming right up."
"What do you think you are doing," Mia asked. "We. You said good news bad news."
As Simone rejoins the table, "The bad news baby is I kinda F'd up. I was online and decided to play around with the market." The Waiter and the
manager showed back up with Clark's order. As they put the three items in front of him, "I kinda got a feeling and decide to buy stock.."
"YOU SPENT OUR MONEY," Mia yells and the whole restaurant pauses.
"I even messed up doing it baby," Clark poured the jack into the ice cup. As poured coke in, "You see I tried to put a buy order in for a hundred and
fifty grand worth of stock. Well I messed up and short sold the stock." He downs his drink," Twice. As you know the market crashed while I was doing
Mia breaks down in tears, "It. It was supposed to buy a house. You selfish, Wait your shorted the market as it crashed?"
"Then my corrected order went through," Clark took another drink. He saw the TV playing the news. Getting up he walked over to the bar and asked them
to turn up the News.
"..unknown investor cornered about a third of the market as it crashed." The Fox news analyst spoke, "The investment is being calculated to be worth
at least Two Hundred Billion dollars when the market reopens."
Everyone in the restaurant stared at Clark as their jaws dropped.
Mia's tears had stopped, "Wait a minute. We are worth."
"Yes baby, With a B." Clark smiled..
Mia took her store keys off from around her neck and handed them to her district manager. "Clark your still in the dog house. It may be gold plated
but it is the dog house."
The Restaurant manager quickly brought the wine menu, "As you requested sir."
Clark sat back down and put his boots up on the table, "Simone, you and Noel order whatever in sam hell yall want." Clark pulled out his cigarettes
and tried to find his lighter, "I left it in the car.."
The manager went to the bar and grab a lighter from the bar keep. He walked over and lit the Lighter, "No need to go outside sir. Your welcome
One of the other tables spoke, "Like whatever! Frisco is a no smokin.."
"Shut up Grace," Her husband coldly spoke. "We do not know what companies he owns.."
"How do you know," Grace looked up at the TV as it spoke.
"It appears the new Billionaire is Clark N. Amos. All we could find is an old mug shot picture," the Fox news lady droned on."Apparently he resides
"Oh," Grace went silent
Clark smiled as he puffed his cigarette, "Jack.. bring everyone currently in here check, add it to my tab.. it is on me.." He looks at his Girlfriend
Mia, "As for housing, After we leave here we have to go to the Bank. We will talk with the VA guy. I want you to give him a base idea of what type
"I want to build." Mia started giving dirty looks to some of the other women who were looking at Clark, "Till then can we just buy that house in Allen
I looked at? For temporary housing"
"Sure baby anything you want.. Call Rooms to Go and Ikea for all the furniture. Have it delivered tomorrow." His cell phone goes off, "Its my momma
baby, let me take this call real quick.."

"I am sorry, We cant take ," The county official smiled. "The property is going to the highest.."
"You A$%^&*E, "The elderly Mrs. Amos yelled. "Your not taking my land.. I have arrived to pay in full." She takes out her cell phone and texts her

A response form the other end of the phone..
"No Congressman, we do not harass old ladies. Yes she is right here, paying the taxes with her banker."
Another response on the phone.
"I understand her son Mr. Amos is proud supporter of the community his mother lives in. We are not taking her house from her." His phone goes off, he
reaches back and looks at the number. He takes a deep breath, "Congressman you have my word we will fix this issue."
Another response from the phone.
"I am on it sir," The other end hangs up.
"She threatened me. It is a terrorist threat," The clerk is greeted by the Sheriff's hand being held up.
As he answers his phone, "This is Sheriff.."
A response comes from the other end.
"Yes, I will hold for the governor," he looks at his phone as another call comes in.. He gives the Clerk an evil look.
A voice on the other end answers.
After a minute, "Yes Governor. I know you are a law and order individual. We in Okaloosa county appreciate your support from the Governor's
Another response comes from the phone.
"I know Mr. Amos is proud supporter of the community his mother lives in."
The voice responds as the Sheriff's phone goes off again. He looks at his cell phone and winces.
"Governor, we have no intention of taking Mrs. Amos's property. It is not necessary for the AG to look into this case. It appears to be a
misunderstanding in some of the paperwork." The Sheriff sits down were the clerk was. He accesses the system, "I am taking Mrs. Amos's payment
personally and logging it in the system. I will fax you a copy of the Receipt."
The Executive and Mrs. Amos smile as the phone responds.
"I understand Governor. Mrs. Amos is a disabled elderly person, These types mistakes I will personally investigate."
After a comment from the other end the phone hangs up.
Getting the receipt, "Here you go Mrs. Amos." As he hands it to her, "For the love of god please ask you son to stop making phone calls. " Giving a
dirty look to the Clerk, "I still have to call back the party chairman, the Senator, and," His phone goes off again. "And now it appears the County
Judge. Have a good day Mrs. Amos."
