Physical Eyes

Chapter 2

Zane is a 42-year-old Biophysicist. Born on April 11, 1958, originally from Brooklyn. In 1962, at age four, his father moved the family down to Hollywood Florida. Zane’s father was finally going to pursue his life long dream of becoming a Professional Charter Boat Fishing Captain. His name was “William Grey”, “Captain Billy” as he was called later in life and he grew up reading books by the author “ZANE GREY”. He felt some kind of special kinship with him. He read his first book in school, in the fifth grade. He had to do a report. While he was in the library standing at the checkout counter he noticed a book in the return bin that had his last name on it. He picked it up and just scanned different parts throughout the book. He realized it was a book about this guy and his hunting and fishing adventures down in the jungles, swamps and off the coast of South Florida. In those days South Florida was a dangerous, wild place. It was filled with savage Indians and all kinds of things that wanted to eat you if given half a chance. From microscopic organisms to gators, bears and panthers, back then humans definitely weren’t the top of the food chain down there. Over the next few years he read all Zane’s books. He would hungrily consume them as fast as he could. What an adventurous life! He told his dad, friends, family and anybody else who would listen, about how he was going to be a great sportsman and guide down in the wilds of South Florida as soon as he grew up. Zane Grey was his idol, hence the name of his first- born. Even as far back as Zane could remember his father took him out on the boat. At first it was fun. But his dad would go out for so many hours and in just about any kind of weather. His dad really wanted him to grow up as Zane Grey the sportsman, but Zane had other ideas. Zane eventually didn’t want to go out on the boat anymore. He would rather stay home with “Theodore” his pet rat and read science books or play with his chemistry set. He still loved the water, but he’d rather be in it or by it then on it.
Now as an adult, he stands 6’2”. His hair is strawberry blonde/gray and it goes well with his cobalt blue eyes. At 210 pounds he looks healthy. He didn’t really ever work out, he was just born lucky. Even though Zane had laser eye surgery a few years ago and doesn’t wear glasses any more, he still can’t manage to lose that “CLARK KENT” look.


Tina Grey is a 36-year-old professional housewife. Or is that professional mooch? They have been married 6 years, with no children. Tina didn’t want any. She was afraid of what pregnancy would do to her beautiful body and besides, children would cut into her work out schedule. Zane waited until the ripe old age of 36 to get married. He hadn’t had time until then to get into any long-term relationships. He still didn’t. They had met at a formal function. Zane was there for business, Tina was also. She worked for the caterer. That night Zane was receiving an award for his dedication and new ground breaking techniques in cellular investigation. He was in an unusually great mood, and from all the toasts he had become a bit toasted himself. That’s when he started getting friendly with the tasty little waitress. To Tina, Zane had almost star quality. Everyone wanted to talk to him, or even be around him. She was so flattered when he kept ignoring all the stuffed shirts to keep talking to her. The Rolex and the Armani suit made him look even more attractive. The next morning he didn’t remember much. What he did, he liked. Still, to make sure that the alcohol hadn’t enhanced her beauty or reduced his standards, he slid the covers down to make sure she really was cute. He considered himself very lucky when he saw she looked even better then he remembered. The rest is history. Six months later they became Mr.& Mrs.Grey. Everything she needed from that point on was paid for, including her memberships at the country club, fitness center and all her charge cards, among those, Lord and Taylor, Bloomingdales, Mayors and every other store in the Bal Harbour Shops. Add the beauty salon, nail salon, tennis pro, personal trainer, the Mercedes ”Kompressor” and lets not forget the maid 5 days a week and we’re talking some pretty high maintenance! She feels she’s worth it because she works so hard at keeping her body so perfect. She’s not totally wrong. At 5’10”, 126 pounds, with dirty blonde hair down to the middle of her back and piecing green eyes, she’s quite a package. She works out religiously, 5 days a week to make sure she keeps that hourglass figure perfect. She really thinks she still loves Zane, but she’s not totally sure. She’s always fantasizing about running away with someone younger, more fun. Someone who will treat her like the queen she believes she is, someone who will be there every night to take care of her needs. And besides, how much longer is she going to look this good, good enough to get her prince charming? She made Zane get her the dog to keep her company. She had to have a $1500.00 pedigree Pomeranian. She thought it was the cutest, cuddliest, most wonderful little friend she ever had. That lasted about 3 days. All it took was 1 chewed $400.00 pair of heals, a special smelly present on her bed ruining her $1800.00 satin comforter from India. And the hair! Dog hair on her clothes, on her food and hair on her furniture. Little tumble weeds of hair of blowing around on the floor. And the smell of dog in the house!
For about the last month or so Tina’s been entertaining the idea of finding a lover that would help her kill Zane and run off to Costa Rica with her and the 1.5 million dollar life insurance policy. But she’s still not sure if she loves Zane……..1.5 million dollars worth!

Well everyone seems to want to kill their husbands these days and I can never understand why.

Why do they even bother getting married if all they want is sex and then murdering the male they married for insurance money. It is unethical and criminal and sorry, sounds like my darn mother in-law who tried the same cooked trick with me as I was of a different religion.
While the husband, well his brothers and mother drove him bonkers but he is still alive none the less.
End of Story in my case as I am still married to the idiot but the Mother in-law has been put in place as it is a common slick trick in India to induce dowry deaths on daughter in-laws for money and get another woman of their choice. But the sad thing is the son goes to jail too along with the mother and the family along with all the other conspirators involved.
There is a case here in NZ - woman murdered husband for insurance and tried to pay the son $20000 to do the job.

Well that is also why I am living away from the family for life protection as the husband took an insurance policy on my name in 2012.

Sorry to hear your woes.
This is fiction.
There will be good guys and bad. People you love and those you'll love to hate.

Working on it legend.
I will probably only be good for a chapter or 2 a week. Unless something changes financially.
The meat & potatoes come after the appetizer.
Always a pleasure to hear from you.
Thanks for following.
Only the best,
Dan
