Montague sat confidently, enjoying the moment; watching the hesitation on his clients faces as they read the full terms of his contract, knowing they had no choice but to sign. But it wasn’t Montague’s fault that society had created the haves and the have not’s and if it wasn’t him then some other unscrupulous business man would step in. Why not him? He wasn’t breaking the law; he was offering a service. The young couple picked up the tacky gold plated pen. Montague felt a surge of adrenalin, the pound signs multiplied before him synchronised with the couple’s deepening misery.

That was so well put...there are so many out there, who aren't breaking any laws, but profiting from others misery! Great piece Lizzie!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I think the fat cats are the epitomy of greed. xxDelete
Ugh, greed dripping from his pen x.ReplyDelete
Ooh, I love your comment; wish I'd thought of that and used it in my piece! xxDelete
Wonderful representation of greed. Nicely done!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Lillie. xxDelete
The imagery in this is great. You can feel the greed oozing from every pore in his body and he obviously has no sympathy for the couple's situation. Really great piece, Lizzie!ReplyDelete
Love 'oozing from his pore' too. Wish I'd thought of that and used it! Glad oyu liked. xxDelete
Very nice Lizzie, I'm wondering what happened after. :)ReplyDelete
Very interesting. I'm wondering just exactly what the couple are signing away. Great job.ReplyDelete
This is really great, Carlie. You've managed to capture his greed and their misery so perfectly!ReplyDelete
