A short novelette written exclusively for Electric Eclectic by Ian Welch.
A short novelette. Brandon is meandering through life. His dreams of a big house, a modern car, and a lovely girl to share it with, is a fantasy. It’s not happening, his job is boring, and his bank account is dismal. Something has to change. Perhaps a holiday in
Las Vegas might provide some inspiration, a kick start to a new future.
Or maybe it’s the start of a trip to Hell. Brandon never foresaw the can of worms an exciting week in vibrant Vegas would unlock.
What harm can a week in fun-city Las Vegas do? Answer – open a can of worms which will change Brandon’s life forever. Now Brandon has the almost impossible task of trying to extricate himself from the deep hole he has stumbled into and restore some normality to his life.
Brandon has three simple aspirations. To own a big house, to drive a late model car, and to marry a gorgeous girl to share all this with. He is failing dismally on all three counts. He feels he is stagnating in his boring bank job. Maybe a week in vibrant Las Vegas is the recipe he needs to kickstart a new focus and to provide a much-needed boost to his meagre finances? Or maybe it is the start of a devastating downward spiral? An out of the frying pan and into the fire situation.
Desperate times calls for desperate measures, Brandon resorts to mixing with unscrupulous people in a desperate attempt to pay off a debt which threatens to destroy his life.
