Saunders 2 – Round 13: ‘Family Business, Pt. 4′

Filed under: Saunders — Tags: , , , — Mao @ 9:27 pm

Gordon Saunders married Tracey to cover up his acquisition of his mother’s criminal empire. Tracey married Gordon to escape her island hell, but finds herself caught between falling in love and falling into a trap.

Thanks to Sara O`Hanlon, Tracey was introduced to Aiyana Saunders. Aiyana was also new to Boreal Springs and so they started out with some common ground. It wasn’t long before the two were good friends, calling and visiting as much as possible. Aiyana finally had someone to confide in and Tracey was just happy to have some female company. Her former fling with Shang Yu left a sour taste in most female’s mouths.

Gordon was pleased with the distraction Aiyana provided. He knew that Sara was a good bet and she was already helping him out without even knowing it. Tracey was so caught up in her friendship she failed to notice the odd hours Gordon kept. The less suspicion, the better. He was so close to regaining complete control–there were only a few final steps before he could call himself his mother’s true successor.

He tried not to think about the hassle that Thomas Anderson provided. He’d be taken care of soon enough.

Of course, the distraction didn’t last long. Aiyana began to question Tracey about what she did and the conversation turned to Gordon. Tracey was at a loss–he never specifically stated what he did.

“I… I’m not–”

“You don’t know?” Aiyana was too shocked to mind her manners. “How is that possible?”

Tracey looked sheepish, “I guess I never asked.”

Aiyana quirked an eyebrow at this, “what aren’t you telling me, Tracey? You two are the strangest married couple I’ve ever seen–and I’ve seen some weird things.”

“I guess it won’t hurt to tell you, but you have to keep it quiet, all right?”

“Sure, you have no idea how good I am at the whole secret keeping gambit…”

After her chat with Aiyana, Tracey was determined to not be made a fool of again. She was going to go get a straight answer from Gordon once and for all. At least, that’s what she claimed. As per usual, Gordon had the upper hand and Tracey was easily swayed away from her questions. Any person outside of the situation would see the manipulation easily, but Tracey preferred the ‘ignorance is bliss’ notion and denied any hints she saw.

He was just too nice to be manipulative. Ask anyone! Except Lilith, but Lilith hated everyone…

Gordon was elated when she finally took complete control of his mother’s empire. Every minion was his to boss around, the money from all the laundering operations and crooked businesses was his to spend, and even better… the notoriety and fear was finally at his finger tips.

There was just one nagging little problem–Thomas Anderson. Janine had worked out a deal with Thomas, but Gordon had decided awhile back he preferred to work alone. Thomas had all the politicians in his pocket and were it not for sticking his own neck out there, would have exposed Gordon. If Gordon wanted political power, Thomas had to go.

Tracey was surprised when Gordon suggested a vacation. He hadn’t spoken of any desires to leave Boreal Springs prior, but she wasn’t about to argue. They decided on somewhere far away, even further than the islands. Tracey was definitely thankful for that. Even better, they weren’t staying in a hotel; Gordon had purchased a fully-furnished house for them to occupy. Tracey didn’t bother asking where the money came from.

  3. Great update! Gordon is 10x more vicious than his mom! He’ll make a great Criminal Mastermind. I just feel bad for Tracey. But then again, she wasn’t exactly honest with him when they got married!

    He’s also 10x more conniving and manipulative than Thomas! I wouldn’t feel bad for Tracey–he’s nothing but nice to her.

  6. Aiyana isn’t one to keep her mouth shut. Can’t wait to see if Gordon gets away with it all.

    She’s been doing a good job so far, but her and Tracey really seem to like discussing crime. ;)

  7. No massage is going to make Tracey forget to ask where her husband was for three days…will it? Sheesh, woman, focus!

    The demise of Thomas, Oooo I’ve been waiting for this! Gordon is deliciously diabolical. *gets popcorn* :D

    Hahaha, yeeeah, Tracey is easily distracted. Gordon is really good at distraction tactics, though. ;) It will be interesting to see how Thomas falls…
