Cold Cash

Naiveté and I are old acquaintances. At my first job, I worked with a chap slightly older than myself who was already saving for a car. We became friends as we worked and helped the time pass for one another. The monetary wall was broken one day when Chris asked me if he could borrow some money. Together in the back of the store, we wrote up a contract that entitled Chris to five hundred of my earned currency which he would pay back over a period of three months. One tenth of the payment came my way weekly even after his employment ended. As you’d expect, the payments eventually stopped, as did the answering of my phone calls. Enraged, I was completely surprised to find a person could have such a tear in his moral fiber. The boy never attempted to return contact, but I underwent a revelation when I realized that this sort of thing is not what people like known about them. These compulsions erupt when people are weak when they could be strong and tell of a massive character flaw hidden within. I feel bad for Chris for he is burdened with this plight and he may not even be aware of it. This will be in his head whether or not he ever thinks about it. At the time, I had no expenses; by comparison, I was in one of the better positions to have that happen and not feel any negative repercussions. I doubt Chris will seek me out, but if he does, he will not find a bitter, vengeful man. I choose to see it all as paying four hundred dollars for a priceless lesson.
