The last assignment I did this week was called “Tell Us About Your Future Life” for 3 stars. The instructions can be found here. For this assignment I actually told the story of the future life of my character, Billy Steel.
Here’s what you know about Billy already: he was born in 1905 and lives in a bad neighborhood in Detroit. He works on the assembly line at Ford, and has a wife Jackie who hates his guts because he frequently cheats on her, and his only son was kidnapped and murdered at the age of 6. Steel is an alcoholic vigilante of sorts who targets gang members to get revenge for his son’s murder. On the recent radio show that aired, NOIR Not The Father, it was revealed that Jackie had been murdered by Billy out of jealousy and contempt, as he suspected her of having affairs of her own.
After the show, Billy escaped from police custody with the help of crime scene cleaner Blair Morgan. Blair had been a huge flirt ever since she drowned her husband in their pool, and she and Billy ended up having an affair during the production of NOIR Not The Father. When it was determined that Billy was the culprit in his wife’s murder, Blair couldn’t sit by and watch her lover be taken away for life. So she helped him escape. Unfortunately for her, Billy immediately ditched her and fled to Indianapolis to live in hiding.
In Indianapolis Steel tried to turn over a new leaf. He didn’t completely abandon his vigilante lifestyle, but he did try to work more in cooperation with the local cops; without their knowing it, of course. He also tried to cut down on his drinking, but everyday was a struggle. That’s the future life of Billy Steel, until……… you’re going to have to stay tuned to find out!!!!
