Paradise Induction Chapter 5 – Extract 8
“Cool dude,” said Saul and fist-bumped Chris.
“See you later,” said Chris. “And thanks very much Saul.”
The two men walked out of the bar area, into the garden.
“Good to have one of ‘dem’ working for you,” chuckled Saul as they disappeared out of sight.
Chris shook his head, fully-knowing he wasn’t supposed to hear that.
“Those are some creepy characters,” said Larry as he emerged at Chris’ side.
Chris turned to see his short, plump future manager standing beside him. His friendly American accent and kind eyes reassured Chris that things were going to be okay, even though it felt like he was being ensnared.
“Yeah,” mumbled Chris. “They are a little creepy.”
Larry chuckled. “Shall we go inside the office and talk about you getting started?” he asked.
“Great—let’s do it.”
They walked past the garden area complex entrance to a wooden block building that seemed to blend in with the jungle garden surroundings. The air-conditioned office was cooling on the body as Larry swung the door open and Chris followed in.
