Hello people, I have decided to do my first FanFic assignment from Ds106 called “The way it should have been” and the instructions are clear and can be found here. This assignment seemed like something I could handle on this lonely Friday night with nothing to do but type. For this assignment I decided I would change George Jung‘s life a bit. For those of you who do not know who George Jung is you are either A to young, or B well… B… something (I don’t know)… Anyways George Jung was a major cocaine trafficker in the USA during 1970’s and 80’s, he went by the nickname of Boston George. Hollywood made a film called blow starring Johnny Depp as George and Penelope Cruz as George’s wife Mirtha. Basically the story is focused on George Jung’s life and how he goes from having nothing, to having something, back to having nothing again, and then finally PRISON for good. I will go ahead and write about what I think George Jung should have done. I will not change the bad things he had done but I will change the things that he will do before he went broke.
WARNING BEFORE READING ON YOU MUST WATCH THE FILM “Blow”. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
All has been going well with George’s civilian lifestyle for several years after meeting Pablo Escobar. Diego, George’s right hand man is pushing George to introduce him to his California connect Derek Foreal. George knows that all Diego wants to do is get ahold of his cocaine business and cut him out altogether. After months of avoiding Diego about the matter, George and Diego end up in a Motel room with a bunch of bunch of potential buyers. Diego is very persistent and is making the drug deal very intense with his cursing and arguing with George. The buyers are becoming inpatient and things get very hectic. George tells the buyers “everything is fine, don’t worry” Diego shouts “Your fucking bitch wife? You introduced your California Connect with your fucking bitch wife!!??” “Five years George!! Five YEARS!!!” At this point everything has gone bad and George must make a decision. George senses that the buyers are ready to draw weapons so before they do he quickly draws his weapon and shoots Diego in the head. He then quickly tells the buyers “I am sorry about my partner’s behavior, here is the dope and I am only charging you half if you still want it all” The buyers quickly agree and everyone leaves the motel quickly after the transaction.
George jumps in his convertible and drives 10 miles and stops at a pay phone. He calls the Columbian bosses and tells them “Diego was killed and there is nothing I could do.” The bosses are a little upset because Diego is a Columbian, but they know Diego is wild and being wild is not good for business. The phone call was quick and business will proceed without Diego. On George’s drive home he passes by the motel where Diego was shot and police are everywhere. George is a bit worried and thinks about leaving town for a few weeks until things die down. He returns home and tells his wife “pack your bags, we are going on a trip.”
After several weeks of stopping in various cities throughout South America, George opens an english magazine while waiting for his wife and his daughter to get ready for dinner. He finds himself stuck reading english idioms and catches the phrase “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” this phrase immediately touches him because it sounds like something his father would have said to him. Instantly George has an epiphany and decides he will stop at his bank in South America and withdraw eighty five percent of his money. His wife does not like the idea of having all this money with them especially because of their location. He tells her “listen, we will be fine I promise. Just give me a few days and I will have it in a safe place” Mirtha responds “George! We are not talking about a few thousand dollars here!! We are talking about several fucking hundred fucking million fucking DOLLARS GEORGE!!!” George responds “Look Mirtha, I am just looking out for the best interest of our family, for you, Kristina and me”
Mirtha informs George that she is leaving him, and she will give custody of Kristina to him if he gives her half of his money. She also tells him that if he does not give her half she will never let him see his daughter. George is heart broke over Mirtha’s decision but must agree because he loves Kristina more than himself. He agrees and tells her to never return or he will have her head. Mirtha kisses her daughter one last time and is never heard from again. George tells Kristina “everything will be fine and things happen for a reason, some people are in your life for life while others are only for a season.” Kristina hugs George and tells him “Promise me daddy… Promise me you will never leave me” George promises Kristina and he feels that he needs to really turn his life around.
Several months after Mirtha left George business was going smooth and George decided to throw his 38th birthday party at his home. He invited all of his partners and Derek Foreal. George decided that he had had enough of the illegal market and decided he would connect the Columbian bosses with Derek Foreal and get out of the business. He also decides that the party will be very low key and not flashy, no drugs permitted. He informs his partners that he is responsible for Kristina and Mirtha was gone for good so he needs to be there for his daughter 100 percent. They all take a toast and the party was fun.
Several weeks after the party George receives a phone call from his bank in South America. Bank teller “hello, Mr. Jung?” George “Yeah, that’s me” Bank teller “Mr. Jung, uhmm, I regret to inform you that your assets within our bank have been seized by the panamanian government as of today” George “Are you telling me that my fifteen million dollars is no longer available to me?” Bank teller ” Yes, Mr. Jung, you are very lucky that you withdrew most of your money before the government seized it” George while looking at Kristina “yeah I am lucky about a lot of things” George hangs up the phone.
George left the cocaine industry and cleaned up his act. He now owns the UFC and the Boston Redsox. He remarried but never had any more children. His daughter graduated Havard in 2006 and is now George’s lawyer. They live happily ever after….
