Story of barry: or dmitri

Barry spent time in jail for being accused of the crime of raping an underage girl, who played him for a fool, making him believe she was in her mid-twenties.  He meets Patsy, who gets him a job by falsifying documents for him.  They start a whirlwind romance and while dating learns that she was the town whore, and decides he can’t handle her having lied to him, so breaks up with her.

He then meets Lisa, a successful real estate agent.  Barry does not tell her about his imprisonment, but instead tells her that he was a teacher at a technical college in North Dakota, and was between jobs.  While dating, they run into Patsy who reveals his past.  Lisa runs off and is killed.

It seems that no matter what Barry does, Patsy keeps resurfacing – screwing his sister’s boyfriend, blackmailing people…until one day she meets her demise.

Barry once again goes undercover as Dmitri with the help of a former prison mate, and learns more than he bargained for.

He then meets another woman he falls for and the bait is set.

Sample text:

“Excuse me!”  She stood up and wandered over to the window, leaning against it as she spoke into the cellphone.

Barry felt his stomach churn, and his insides turned to jelly when he saw the look on Lisa’s face.  How did that stupid bitch get her number?  She was relentless.  Why was she so determined to ruin the best thing in his life?  He watched Lisa end the call, as she slowly returned to the table.  Then, without sitting down, she picked up her bag and moved to leave the restaurant.

“Was that Patsy?   How did she get your number?”

Lisa’s eyes welled with tears.  “Your name is Barry Hemsworth, age thirty-four, isn’t it?

Barry shook his head.

“Don’t lie to me, you bastard!  After everything I told you about my husband?  Show me at least some respect and tell me who you really are!”  Lisa’s voice was trembling, but she was furious now.

“I can explain!”

Lisa frowned.  “Explain what?  That you’re not a teacher between jobs?”

“No,” Barry sighed heavily.

“And you didn’t go to Axiom College?”

Barry shook his head.  “No!  But Patsy is a liar.  Is your number listed online?”

“It’s on the company’s website, jackass.”  Lisa pursed her lips as a single tear ran down her face.  “And you raped an underage girl?”

“No!  Well, yes we had sex, but she told me she was legal!”
