Pre-sequel Mice & Men

Extracts from this document...


Far up near the desert-land of California, Weed, in the times of 'The Great Depression' the ranches were being swarmed by redundant men, all looking for some kind of work. The main ranch in Weed was named the 'workers grave'. The vineyard was a long rectangular land, set up in rows of vines. 24th of November, 1930, a normal day giving the state of the economy, the vines were slicing through the wind, like an assassin's blade through its victim's neck. The forest-land surrounding was being abused and murdered as henchmen hacked away at the barks of the grandfathers of the land, the trees. Huge cloth torn barley bags were being heaved up onto wooden wheelbarrows and the sound of disgruntled men was the soundtrack of the day, of every day. A half-mile down south of the vineyards was camp. Some small bamboo built houses sloped backwards on an uneven hill-type land. Back at camp, a card game had just been played out. A small man, with jet black wavy hair and a western accent, wearing a woollen jumper and worn down worker jeans had won. His name was George, but the ranch-workers named him Gumball. This was because of his strong jaw-line being developed due to chewing too much gum. Gumball was a clever young man; he could read, write and even had an education. Gumball was well respected by the other workers. Digging Doug and Singing Sally were two workers at the Ranch. Doug was named after his unique ability to dig for hours on end, and Singing Sally after his squeaky voice and his never-ending banter about his dream to become a famous singer one day. ...read more.


"George, she, she real-really pwetty George." "She looks like trouble to me Lennie, stay back." The Boss sounded disgruntled as he was speaking to his Wife. "We'll find this gold soon and then we'll sell up and let these assholes rot with this place, I've everything planned, the general wants to buy this land for army training, and these guys will be his first puppets. We'll be rich and we can go live somewhere nice, by the countryside with maids and butlers" Said the Boss eagerly. "Good, remember, these good for nothings haven't done you any favours baby" She angelically stepped closer to the Boss, putting her palms across his chest and lips an inch away from his. "This can be our dream" Gumball had been ease-dropping with Lennie hugging tightly to his leg. As the Boss and his wife entered their cabin, Gumball dropped back then he and Lennie headed back to the camp, where lay asleep all of the other workers except David. He was awake staring at the door anxiously as Gumball walked in behind Lennie. "Go to bed Lennie" demanded Gumball. Lennie went to his bed and dozed off into a deep relaxing sleep. "Listen David, I know the rules, bed by 9, up by 6 do the work go to sleep but..." "You don't need to make excuses for me George, I know where you 2 hobo's have been" interrupted David. "You do?" asked Gumball surprisingly "You went to spy on the boss, to find out what was wrong with Digging Douglas didn't you Gumball." "Y-Yeah..." Stuttered Gumball. "Well what'd ya find out then you douche bag." "I think he's using Digging Doug to find his gold, then he's gonna sell this place and buy up in the country side, reckons he'll get himself a nice little cottage for him and his whore to live at. ...read more.


Back at Camp The Boss's wife had lured Lennie into the wash room. "Big guy like you Lennie, Can't be letting George have all the fun." "George friendly" smiled Lennie. A sense of danger hindered the room as The Boss's wife grasped Lennie's hands and placed them upon her waist. Lennie, aroused held tight, almost breaking The Boss's hips. "HELP! Somebody help me, he's raping me" Screeched The Boss's Wife, Lennie let go immediately looking shocked he stepped backwards. David suddenly burst into the room, he whispered directions into Lennie's ear and Lennie jogged off into the distance. The Boss was outside with 3 horses, He woke Singing Sally and Nutter Nick telling them that Lennie had been trying to rape his wife, he handed them each a shotgun, including Digging Doug and ordered them to hunt Lennie down. Panting George came bursting into the room knocking down The Boss's wife, at the same time The Boss entered the room. David tackled George to the floor as The Boss cocked his shotgun and whispered in his ear "Quick, Lennie's waiting south of here near the ditch, get out of here, Now!" Two gunshots were let off just missing George's feet as he sprinted out of the room down south towards the Ditch. David was on the floor bleeding, and let out a groan of excruciating pain. He had taken a third bullet in the Chest which was aiming towards George's Head. The Boss leaped back onto his Horse and rode off west with Digging Doug and Nutter Nick, all three armed and hunting down Lennie & George. George had found Lennie waiting crying behind a Ditch, "George, you said not like last time! No gunshot I HATE gunshot George!!" "It's ok Lennie, it's ok come here into the Ditch we gotsa be quite right now" TO BE CONTINUED... ...read more.
