by Harvey Havel

Copyright© 2019 by Harvey Havel

Fiction Story: Published in 2014. Charlie meets a wealthy and successful mobster at a local bar late one night, and with his help, Charlie hopes to get the woman he is in love with by associating with him. He finds out, though, that even with the mobster's help, he is arrested, loses his job, and is generally tortured by his lot in life and the threadbare existence that comes with it. His only real choice, he decides, is to take action and kill the man who is most responsible for it all: the mobster himself.
