Threads: The Island - part 19

A couple of minutes of frantic fumbling produced the remote and he selected the screen and turned the sound up.

".... So that's what you tell your friends," Kara was saying firmly. "You sneaked in, fucked him and won your bet, and if anyone asks I'll confirm you were in there for ten minutes and left clutching your kimono in your hand. Either that or I'll get Edwin to fire you first thing in the morning." He saw Kara shrug her shoulders. "Your call."

Sarah looked scared, pressured and Edwin snarled, realising his plan wasn't going to happen.

"You're going to pay for fucking this one up, Sarah," He told her as he watched her leaving on the monitor. "Tomorrow you're going to have to be my Patricia-slut, blonde wig, in the shower, fingering your holes like the whore you are while I empty my balls on you."

"They were all personal friends of Mister Tripps," Garius assured her. "They'll be nice and friendly to you, don't worry."

Kyle read the list again. Anna Friel, Ashley Judd, Charlize Theron, Christy Turlington, Elizabeth Shue, Helena Bonham-Carter. Lena Headey, Salma Hayek.

"Are all these women ex-girlfriends of Danny Tripps?" He asked.

"All except Salma Hayek and Elizabeth Shue. They were just friends, but he dated the rest of them at one point or another," Patricia explained. "And not the guys. They were just friends too."

Kyle finished the list. Johnny Depp, Kevin Smith, Mike Myers and Nicolas Cage.

"Holy shit."

"Just asking how the business trips going, some suggestions on how you can fellate the directors you're travelling with, and instructions to bring him back a gift."

Kyle could tell she found reciting Ed's messages to be quite amusing, which wasn't really surprising because Ed could be outrageously funny, if amazingly crude. What did surprise him was her saying the word 'fellate' without a trace of embarassment.

"I'll have to think up a response and email him back. I take it I can do that with this new phone I'm getting?"

"And then some," She nodded.

Oh. Alright."

"Don't drink with him, Kyle," She said suddenly, stopping him. "He'll probably tease you, and he'll probably be drinking himself, but stick with water."

"Yes, mother," He grinned.

"No, seriously. This guy's a power drinker, and he'll get you so wasted that you'll be ill for days because he thinks it's funny." Her expression was serious, so Kyle nodded. "I'll meet you out here when you're done," She added.

"You're not coming in?"

Kyle frowned. "And then you ended up in Myrtle Beach?"

"Yeah, eventually. I was working the bar there and some of the girls were encouraging me to dance. When I saw them doing it a few times and I saw the money they made I gave it a go. The rest you know."

"Did you enjoy it?" Kyle asked, genuinely curious.

"Most of the time? No. Most of the time it sucked, having old men pawing at you, or guys treating you like shit. Sometimes it was hard to keep from showing your contempt." She paused for a moment, then grabbed his cigarettes.

After dinner she excused herself for a visit to the bathroom and Kyle took the opportunity to slip outside for a smoke. It was only a couple of minutes later when she reappeared.

"Kara. Have you got a second?"


Kyle stood up and began to walk slowly around the pool and his sister joined him.

"What's up?"

"We haven't really had a chance to talk," He said gently. "How you doing with all this?"

Her eyes narrowed as she looked around at the main house, then back to Kyle. "Haven't decided."

The meeting had lasted nearly three hours. Mister Crowler had read them Danny Tripps' last will and testament, a lengthy document that had taken up forty one pages in total and then he'd gone through each item on each page, answering questions from the three stunned siblings.

"Do you want to read it?" Kyle asked, nodding towards his copy of the will in its binder on the table.

She shook her head. "I helped write it. I can tell you it's had one hundred and fourteen revisions that I know about."

"Fuck me," Kyle muttered. He knew about document control and records management from his work, but a document with a hundred and fourteen revisions belonged in Government.

"Well, after this we go back to the suite. You get changed and we go to the dock to meet Katie and Kara."

Kyle swallowed nervously, feeling the nerves rise again in his stomach suddenly.

Patricia leaned forward and looked him in the eye. "It'll be fine. Now, immediately after they get off the boat, the three of you are meeting with Mister Crowler to have the will read to you. That's probably going to take a while by the time he runs through it all with you."

"Okay. Not looking forward to that, but okay."

"You're joking," Kyle said, but from her expression he could see she was serious. "And that's how I'm meant to live my life?"

"Kyle, is there something wrong with dating someone beautiful, talented and successful?" Patricia asked, an amused smile on her face.

Kyle shook his head, finding this conversation a bit much. "I think I'm getting irritable. I'm going to try and have that sleep now, I think."

"Good idea," Patricia nodded. "I'll wake you in a few hours."

"I have accommodation that I share with Lakshmi, one of the other Executive Assistants. It's just to the left as you go out the main house, but because of.... everything that's going on, I'll be staying in your suite."

Kyle cocked an eyebrow at that.

"If that's okay with you, of course?" She added. "Your suite has two en-suite bedrooms in it, as well as a dressing room, office and lounge area. Plus there's the balcony."

"Holy shit," Kyle muttered. "It's the whole floor?"

She nodded, smiling. "Taking a bit of getting used to?"

"Yeah, you could say that."
