Keeping up with the Joneses #36

LaneDowning (600x400)

Lane Downing was now a member of the Jones household, in preparation for the upcoming wedding. Lane was gloomy, a genius and a geek, and although he aspired to be a master chef, he had not worked hard towards this goal in his youth, and he did not have much time left to work his way up the corporate ladder.

Callie and Lane’s wedding was rescheduled for the next day. Everything was just about ready; all that remained was for Bryant to return home from work so he could give his daughter away – and prepare a delicious feast, of course!


However, as soon as Bryant returned home from the restaurant where he worked, he knew something was wrong. Was his long and successful life about to come to an end?


Grim thought so. According to his records, Bryant’s time was up.


With everyone else still at work or busy preparing for the wedding, Lane was the only one at home, and he didn’t know Bryant well enough to plead with the Reaper. And so, the second generation heir of the Jones family passed on.

The Jones family story continues in Chapter 37.
