#134 I’ll Be Your Partner Tonight (300 words)

Inspired by: I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight

Reggie met Ein at his apartment to go over their new business relationship. 

“Ein, how have you been doing since I left? Your apartment seems as disgusting as ever.” 

“Well, you bought it for me.” 

“Because it was very cheap.”

“The building was cheap too.”

“Oh, so you own the whole building now?”

“Yep, for a couple weeks now. I’ve hired a few people to help me fix it up, invest in the neighborhood the way the city should be. Enough of about me, what is your plan?” 

Reggie cleared his throat and organized his thoughts, “A long time ago, when I was probably about your age, I made a business deal with Jon Fall. He needed a loan, and I gave it to him in good faith. It was a terrible decision and cost me everything. Jon Fall rebranded himself and is the colossus you know today. When I went to him for help, he turned me down.”

“But didn’t he just buy your company?” 

“He did, and because of that, I think he’s going to use my work to try spacetravel again. But organic matter can’t leave the atmosphere. They tried in the 50s and 60s, and it was a complete disaster.” 

“Then what are we doing?” 

“We’re going to bring the moon to us.”

“That’s impossible, though, right?”

“We’re going to send a robot to the moon. It’s going to take some moon samples and will bring them back to Earth. We’re going to be the first men in the world to touch the moon!”

“Where do we start?” 

“First things, first, we need to find my suitcase.” 

“Huh?” 

“It’s essential, and a woman I slept with has it.” 

“Huh?” 

“Are you in?” Reggie asked, putting his hand out.

“Hell yeah!” Ein put his hand over Reggie’s.
