We have all received bad news at one time or another. It's never a good feeling. It's especially disheartening when you've called to relay some good news, but receive the bad news in return. In this short excerpt from my book, "The Imagination Stone" the main character, Tom, is speaking with his childhood friend, Gill, who works at the bank. He's called with some great news about his business but receives a cold response. Unknown to Tom is that Gill's boss is standing over him at the time. I hope that you enjoy this excerpt and please watch for the release of "The Imagination Stone" October 1, 2020.
The Imagination Stone
“Look, Tom, Mr. Parker,” Gill interrupted again, “it’s great that things are going better, but the bank still needs to see that payment from you as soon as possible. We didn’t loan you this money in order to help you, so that we could wait until it’s convenient for you to pay us back.” Gill’s boss motioned questioningly. Gill pointed to a file half buried under other files. His boss picked it up and opened it, thumbing through the paperwork. Gill cringed inwardly. “Tom, please understand that good news doesn’t catch you up on the back payments and resulting interest that you’ve accrued. We need for you to catch up within three weeks, or you’re going to have to close up your business and sell your assets. In other words, Mr. Parker, we’re going to have to call your loan and take you to court or seize your assets.”
