How I bought my Aventador


Neste agreed: $400,000.

Farid’s eyes bugged out. He glanced at the Waterhouse in the alarmed case, thinking I was being robbed.

He never knew it was fake. Didn’t know until much too late about his smack, slipped to Neste later that day.

  3. I get the sense there is a much larger story waiting to be written about this. You did a great job conveying it in so few words.

  4. because I am finishing The Goldfinch right now, this is reminding me of it. How everything is not always what it seems.

    Great job!

    1. I'm sure that book is what got me thinking of drugs and artwork.

  5. I had to Google Aventador since that would be out of my price range.

    1. I had to Google Lamborghini models, Arabic names, and famous paintings of mermaids. Google is our friend. :)

  8. Sneaky bastard! I love a Gargleblaster that makes me learn something new and tells a story. Well done.
