The Guy Flick: Part 1

[Plot description of a story. Contains spoilers the more you read ahead. If you want a hint as to where this comes from, Air on the G String should be enough of a clue.)

Money. He is obsessed with money. Everything is about money with him. If it has profit in store, he’s interested. If it doesn’t, he ignores it. If a woman can get him more money, he’ll butter her up. If a woman has no money, he isn’t interested. He’ll even hurt his loyal friends because the Boss says the “business” needs that family’s land. So he’ll make them sell the land that’s been in the family since ages past, that they lived on, grew up on, and continue to grow apple trees on. When the son is kidnapped by someone and a ransom demand made, our protagonist even sees and tries to use that in order to make the family go into debt so that their land, used as collateral, could be seized and sold by the bank to the developers.

Who is this person you might wonder? Well, he’s the protagonist of our story. The hero. Hero?! You’re probably thinking, “that’s not a hero, that’s a damn villain”, aren’tcha? But know this well, he is the hero of our story, as amazing as that might seem. And I mean a real hero, not the PC term sometimes used to justify weak pathetic trash.

How do you think that came about in the story? Well, it’s a total spoiler if I told you, nor would you truly understand. So I’ll tell it indirectly.

Our protagonist here grew up under interesting circumstances. His father lost the family fortune through debt. His mother forced to take care of him alone, while they were hounded by the mafia’s debt collectors throughout the country. Mistreated, poor, destitute, and hounded by problems they had not the power to solve, this was the childhood of our nameless protagonist. Perhaps you might think that this is why he considers and values money as the end all, be all to all things. To the point where he insists that he settle accounts for a cup of coffee, when invited to a cafe by a friend. Does he hate the idea of debt and being poor because debt destroyed his family and made his mother poor? That’s an interesting question, is it not.

However, do you think that excuses the harm he does to people who love him? Do you think it’s okay for him to try to run a girl’s family off their farm just because the mafia boss that adopted him, commanded that it would be profitable to re-develop that land? Do you think it’s okay for him to use his (foster) sister’s ice figure skating fame to make more money, while ignoring her otherwise?

Our protagonist here has a debt to pay. His father’s debts. His father is imprisoned for murder. Murdering the guy who put him into debt, that is. That’s why our protagonist has a different foster fother and isn’t with his mother. His mother is at a clinic for the insane. His current foster father is the mafia boss his biological father owed the enormous cash to. About 500,000 US dollars. With an enormous interest rate which doubles it every year or so.

So far, our protagonist has made a million or so dollars. He’s a millionaire, and he goes to high school. Not nearly enough to pay off the debt, however. This is the “main character” of our story, as you can see. A person that seeks money, is controlled by money, lives in fear of debt and his foster father’s mafia status, and cares about nothing else but money. High school is just a cover. To prevent other people from realizing that he’s the right hand of a front company for the mafia.
