A boy named Tom wants to be a writer when he grows up. He heard that a man in the Prohibition days was still alive and the man was a drug smuggler at that time. So he goes to visit him
The man tells him to come inside and he will tell Tom what he did in the prohibition days. He told him he was not really a drug smuggler but he was a victim of a dangerous situation.
I was not really a drug smuggler
The old man named Ruben told Tom when he and an old friend Jeddy found a dead man on a beach. They searched him and found a half a fifty dollar bill.
Then at night he was kidnapped and put in a basement. The people who kidnapped him were smugglers and wanted the fifty because it was actually a ticket with a code to get some good liquor. Ruben tried to play dumb but it did not work.
Were is the ticket!
Then Ruben was taken onto the Black Duck which was the ship that smugglers went to. The captain forced Ruben to give him the half bill but the coast guard started firing at the Black Duck.
Ruben got home safely and destroyed the bill. The person who told the coast guard was his friend Jeddy.
