Seascape with Houses by Anonymous

“I’m telling you some real strange things happen in Seaside Heights in the middle of winter down by the Jersey shore.”

At the Parrot Club on Xmas eve, Blackie, a bartender, is giving Zack a drink, and Nancy is looking for her cousin Sophia. She is advised Sophia got hot and heavy with a horse player and left early in the day. Carl, a young blind man enters with a seeing eye dog named Conscience and silk handmade ties around his neck. After a lot of chit-chat, they all end up at Zack’s bungalow. Nancy passes out with Zack, and Carl, with Conscience. Nancy finds Zack’s phone and takes a call from Susan. Nancy is up to something. Susan arrives at Zack’s bungalow. Zack learns that Nancy is really Gina, the girlfriend of Susan’s husband. Susan’s husband Hank arrives. It gets complicated. And deadly. Otherwise, it’s a beautiful thing.
