    • “BALLIN 5” G-MAC: The neighbors crowded around the McDonald home as paramedics brought out a body bag and put it in the back of an ambulance. A few minutes later, G-Mac, Jacks and a woman with a bandaged arm and broken nose emerged from the house. A policeman approached the trio, he looked at Nikki and said; you’re lucky; the bullet grazed you. Also, congratulations for taking out Kendall Taylor, one of “America’s Most Wanted,” thanks to you, he’ll never be able to harm anyone else again, great work! After the policeman left, Jacks turned to Nikki and said, girl you are too much, you barely survived that round, if you continue to fight men, stick to the overweight and out of shape ones. Nikki smiled and slowly nodded her head. G-Mac added, Nikki, that was some excellent marksmanship in the dark, you shot him right between the eyes. Nikki replied; I had to go black on his ass; he was no joke! Jacks and G-Mac insisted on taking Nikki to the hospital. She was examined, the doctor treated her nose and re-bandaged her arm; she was given painkillers and released. From there, Jacks and G-Mac took her home. CAMERON: It was a cold snowy night on the Southside of Chicago. Carl Franklin was a policeman out on disability, he spent all of his income on gambling; because of his addiction, the electricity was often turned off. Carl was in an inter-racial marriage with Lily, an attractive African-American woman. When Carl got drunk, he would go in unprovoked rages and his violence would be directed towards Lily. They had a son named Cameron, Cameron was a beautiful child with gray eyes, an olive complexion and long eyelashes; he was 5. It was so cold; Carl decided to put in an adult tape. After a few beers, he woke up Cameron, brought him downstairs and said, sit down boy and watch this movie with me, it will teach you how to be a man.
    • When Lily arrived home from work, she was appalled to see Carl passed out on the couch and Cameron wide-awake watching porn. She woke up Carl and demanded to know, why on earth do you have our son watching this trash? Carl staggered up and hit her in the face, he then threw her down and started kicking her, screaming, “shut the fuck up, I can show my son any kind of movies I want, I give the orders in this house you black bitch!” Within the year, Lily started experiencing severe headaches, when she finally went to the doctor; she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, too many blows to the head. Lily would die the following year; her death would never be investigated because Carl was a cop. Over the following years, Carl would lie and tell Cameron, your mother was nothing but a whore and a slut like most women. When Cameron turned 16, Carl took him to a rundown brothel. The prostitutes commented on how gorgeous Cameron was. He was a bit nervous because he had never been with a woman before. Carl practically pushed him down the hallway with a girl. On the ride back home, Carl said, now you are a man, always remember, women are only good for two things, sex and cooking. In high school, numerous girls were attracted to Cameron, he didn’t return their interest; he concentrated on his studies, mainly web page design. When he returned home, he would lock himself in his room and watch porn. Within the next six months, he knew the name of every black female porn star. While watching the tapes, he would mutter, ‘nasty bitches, dirty sluts.’ Carl would die of alcoholic related illnesses. At 21, Cameron moved to Las Vegas. He set up a profitable scheme, he built a black market website for crooks to purchase credit card numbers, social security numbers and date of birth’s. For $200 you received 300 credit cards without the CW2 security codes, for 50 cards with the security code, you also paid $200 dollars. He also offered a package deal, one stolen credit card number, one social security number and a date of birth for $40. After crooks purchased the stolen card number (the majority of the purchases came from Russia). The stolen goods purchased (via the internet) would be sent to an untraceable
    • mail drop in Russia. During the course of business, Cameron met a Russian named Marco; they kept in touch. Marco also dealt in forged passports, documents and birth certificates. Cameron told him; I’ll keep that in mind. Within the next year, after Marco became a part of the Russian mafia, he stopped during Internet scams. He graduated to banking fraud, security fraud, extortion, the sex trade and global weapons trafficking. Once in a while, Cameron would hire a hooker but he became so rough with the hookers, escort agencies refused to send them out. The following week, an adult convention hit town. Cameron bought a ticket and attended and mingled in the crowd. The majority of the adult stars had booths set up where they met and greeted fans, posed for photos, signed autographs and sold posters. Other girls were making side deals with rich fans, agreeing to meet them later for sex for astronomical amounts of money. Meanwhile; a male and female porn star were having sex in full view of the fans. Cameron caught a glimpse of Heather Hunter, Janet Jacme and Crystal Knight in the distance as well as several hip-hop stars, but his attention was focused on Kandy Bee. Kandy Bee was the new black porn queen; the line to her booth was snaked around the corner. Some of the fans had flown in from across the country to meet Kandy; she basked in the spotlight. Kandy also received a lot of attention from couples and females. A year earlier, she had appeared in several girl/girl films. Although Kandy didn’t consider herself bi-sexual or gay, she was classified as ‘gay for pay.’ She only appeared in these films for extra cash. Off screen, she was strictly heterosexual. Cameron stood in her line; it took him 2 hours to get to the front of the line. Kandy looked up and saw a gorgeous man with olive skin and beautiful gray eyes but she immediately got a bad vibe, she hurriedly hurriedly autographed a 8x10 photo, Cameron went into his wallet, paid for the photo and left. Kandy had met up with a Texas oil man who had propositioned her at the convention, he told her that she was his ultimate sexual fantasy and he was willing to pay $10,000 in cash to have sex with her. After the sex was over, Kandy took her briefcase of money, kissed her oil man on the cheek and left. She didn’t know she was being followed.
    • She arrived at her hotel, before the elevator doors closed, a man stepped in; he wore shades. It was something familiar about him, but Kandy couldn’t place him, she wondered, why is he wearing sunglasses at night? She got off the elevator, he got off on the same floor, he went in the opposite direction; she was relived. She put the key in the lock, as she turned the lock, she felt someone behind her, before she turned completely around, someone placed a hand over her mouth and used their other hand to open her door. For the next two hours, Kandy endured torture and rape as Cameron screamed, ‘you filthy cunt, you’re lower than scum.’ When he took off his glasses, Kandy recognized him. After he finished, he started punching her, he couldn’t stop, the beating finally ended when she stopped breathing, he had beaten her to death. He collected his things and hurriedly left. When he returned home, he felt good, he popped open a beer and put in a porn tape. DAYNA: Dayna, the HIV assassin for the government was relaxing and watching the news when the newscaster reported that adult film star Kandy Bee was found murdered in her Las Vegas hotel room. Dayna bolted up from the couch, she knew Kandy, when Dayna was a video girl, they did several videos together before Kandy branched out into the adult industry, although Dayna didn’t agree with her decision they still remained friends and kept in touch. Dayna called the airlines and booked a flight to Las Vegas. Dayna met with the cops who were working the case, although they were reluctant at first to share any information, they eventually opened up. They summed up the case as a stalker killing. The DNA left at the scene didn’t garner any hits from their database; which meant, the killer didn’t have a police record. After a month passed, the case was forgotten until another black porn star was found murdered in a similar manner. The police begin to think, maybe we have a serial killer in our midst but since the victims were black porn stars, very little effort went into solving the cases. Dayna decided to call Lear.
    • LEAR: Salvatore (Sal) Santiago was the world’s most dangerous nuclear smuggler who headed a vast network that was developing a serum to create 24-hour soldiers. After the serum was injected into the soldier, he could operate on little or no sleep for 24 straight hours in combat despite sleep deprivation. This network also engaged in nuclear trafficking and sold ‘centrifuges’ which can produce nuclear fuel or refine uranium to make nuclear bombs. This company also dealt in black market illegal liquor smuggling. The going rate in Europe was $1,000,0000 on twelve containers. The network was spread across several continents. Lear and a strike team had Sal Santiago under surveillance. Lear intercepted the sale of a nuclear warhead that Santiago had initiated by having an undercover agent install a ‘keyghost’ on Santiago’s laptop computer. The keyghost allowed Lear to track every keystroke Santiago made on the computer. The device also captured passwords, access codes, card numbers and website addresses. For additional information, Lear relied on a “covert computer wire.” This wire is a high grain antenna and decoder that allows you to read waves and decode them into a perfect replica on what someone sees on their computer screen. Via the computer, Santiago gave the prospective (warhead) buyer a priority phone number; the buyer was told to call on a certain day at a particular time. Lear had the undercover agent install a ‘dead ringer’ on the priority phone. This device prevents all incoming calls from coming in. Answering machines; fax machines and voice mails are also silenced. The calling party hears the phone ringing without being answered. The deal collapsed because Santiago assumed the buyer never called. Time to move in, Lear and the strike team dismantled the network and arrested Santiago. Lear was on a private jet back to the states when her priority cell phone rung, it was Dayna, she explained the situation, Lear listened and told her that she would contact Jacks and G-Mac and schedule a meeting for the following week. JACKS: Dayna and Lear had dinner with G-Mac and Jacks, they both asked about Nikki and were told, she was vacationing, after the ordeal of losing Sherm and killing Kendall, she was taking a leave of absence. After dinner, Dayna got right to the point, she recounted Kandy Bee’s death along with the second murdered porn star.
    • Lear said, I think we have a serial killer on our hands who is targeting black women in the adult industry, I think Dayna and Jacks should go undercover is Las Vegas to draw him out. Jacks spoke up, Lear, I’m not going undercover as a porn star, I have kids, Lear said, I’m not asking you to go undercover as a porn star but to hang around the black female porn stars at the adult conventions and parties, you and Dayna will stand out because of your looks and the killer will take notice. G-Mac said, Lear, I don’t want my wife used as bait, Lear turned to G-Mac, that’s where you come in; you can shadow their movements discreetly, like a personal bodyguard in the background. Lear continued, I know a lot of people don’t respect entertainers in the adult industry but these girls are human beings and they have families and friends who love them like everybody else. Jacks looked at G-Mac and said Lear is right, let’s solve this, G-Mac said, are you sure? Jacks said, yeah, I’m sure. Let’s do this! Dayna added, Kandy’s little sister Jessica knows a lot of her friends, those friends can give us entry into the inner-circles. Lear said, before I forget, here is the address of a safe house in Las Vegas. Lear added, although we’re paid by various agencies and we’ve done pro bono spy work (in the past) when it involves women and children, since this assignment involves the adult industry, I’ve made arrangements with Sterling Bryce, everyone will be paid. Jacks said, regardless of pay, I think we should accept this assignment, like Lear said; these women are somebody’s mothers, sisters, aunts and niece’s. Lear said, thanks Jacks but I’m still going to make sure everyone gets paid. Lear added, unfortunately, I’ve been called away on assignment; I won’t be joining you on this one. Good luck! Jacks, Dayna and G-Mac arrived in Las Vegas; it was 110 degrees of humid heat. Jacks hit a small jackpot when she put a quarter in the slot machine at the Las Vegas airport. They arrived at the safe house and unpacked. Dayna called Jessica; she invited them to dinner at the “Boulud Brasserie,” located in “Wynn Las Vegas.” Jessica brought them up to date surrounding the investigation involving her sister’s death. Because Kandy was a porn star, the police didn’t seem to be putting much effort into the investigation. Afterwards, Jessica took them to a party; every adult star in the industry was in
    • attendance. Jessica introduced them to everybody. A few producers tried to recruit Dayna and Jacks until G-Mac stepped forward and scared them off. Jacks and G-Mac got into a conversation with a working girl named Rebecca as Dayna worked the party. They talked about their children and parenthood. Rebecca asked Jacks and G-Mac, if they were in the industry? They said no, they were there with a friend. Rebecca looked at her watch and said she had to leave early, to spend time with her son. CAMERON: While taking a shower, Cameron thought, his first kill disappointed him; it wasn’t exciting as he thought it would be. He had a better idea; time to change up his motive of operation and get paid. He put on his clothes and put in some colored contacts that made his eyes brown since his eyes were his most recognizable feature. He turned on his laptop. He checked to see if his Russian friend Marco was online, he was. Cameron sent him an Instant Message detailing his idea. Marco replied, telling him the idea was brilliant and he would be happy to assist him with the venture, he could line up some overseas investors and they could put the plan in motion in Prague. Marco also told Cameron that he had a contact in Las Vegas, the contact was named Luke, he was a porn recruiter and he managed a stable of Internet strippers. Marco gave Cameron-Luke’s number; Luke could handle the passage to Prague for a fee. That’s what Cameron wanted to hear, everything was in place, he told Marco, he would contact him once he had the girl, they bid their goodbyes and both men signed off. Time to hunt. He drove up and down the strip, looking for a particular type of victim. He even went to a few strip clubs, nothing. He was headed home when he spotted her. She came out of a strip club; she was dressed like a stripper in a tight fitting dress and high heels. Cameron parked his car and followed her on foot. He increased his pace, she heard his footsteps and turned around, it was too late as he knocked her backwards. He placed a cloth over her nose; she lost consciousness. He put her in his trunk and called Luke from his cell phone. Luke arrived and Cameron followed him to the docks.
    • After they arrived, both men got out of their cars, Luke laughed and said, just another woman to destroy tonight, Cameron nodded and handed him an envelope containing money. When Rebecca awoke, she was gagged. After an hour, Cameron came in; he looked at her with pure disgust before he spoke. He told her, I will be leaving soon, this boat is set to sail to Prague; you will arrive there in a few weeks. She looked frightened as he continued, someone will pick you up in Prague, from there, they will take you to a location where you will star in your very own film. It will be a “snuff” movie, where numerous men will have sex with you before they kill you onscreen. The master print/negative for a snuff film goes for $250,000. We already have buyers lined up; they are bidding enormous amounts of money online for this film and I will get a substantial cut. Cameron stood up and said; good luck and break a leg! Rebecca tried to scream but nothing came out, she cried herself to sleep as she thought of her son. JACKS/CAMERON: Jacks and Dayna heard about the disappearance of Rebecca Newcombe. Jacks and G- Mac recognized her as the woman at the party. They remembered how she rushed home to be with her son. Something had to be done about this person who was abducting and killing these women. Rebecca’s son would grow up without a mother; Jacks and G-Mac took her disappearance personal. Meanwhile, Jessica called and asked them to be her quests at an adult convention. G-Mac would do the overview and surveillance. They arrived with Jessica; it was amusing when several directors tried to recruit Dayna and Jacks for Gonzo films. G-Mac scanned the room but didn’t see anything unusual, just horny men and over-sexed fraternity boys.
    • JACKS: G-Mac, Jacks and Dayna left the party and walked up the strip; the strip was jumping with bright lights and neon signs. High rollers were arriving at the hotels in Rolls Royces and Ferrari’s. The crew recognized some of the women accompanying the high rollers, they were high priced call girls they had met a few of the parties. They came to the intersection where Tupac got shot. G-Mac asked everyone to take a moment of silence. Everyone said a silent prayer. Afterwards, they went to a buffet at the “Bellagio.” They dined on Kobe beef, sea bass, salmon roulade, sushi, chocolate mousse and chocolate cheesecake covered with raspberry sauce. After dinner, they went to the nightclub “Light” also located in the Bellagio. From there, they arrived at “Studio 54” located at the “MGM Grand,” they finished the night at the “Ghostbar” on top of the Palms Hotel & Casino. ADRIANA: She was drop-dead gorgeous and tall with a caramel complexion, her name was Adriana and she was the most expensive black call girl in Sin City. She charged $2,000 per hour and she operated a successful in-call/out-call escort service on the Internet. Her brother was a cop, he screened all new clients and taught her about security procedures. The casinos loved Adriana because she tipped everyone from the valet to casino personnel with $100 dollar bills. People were drawn to her and they were protective of her. The concierge’s had her on speed-dial for the high rollers who occupied the hotel suites. She was one of the most requested working girls in the city. Adriana lived in a gated community not far from the strip and she drove a white Jaguar. She put on a designer dress, slipped into her Jimmy Choo’s and headed out the door; she was going to meet her best friend Sunny for dinner. SUNNY/MARLON: Sunny Warren was a very popular centerfold and exotic dancer. She was also very
    • beautiful. Her skin was cinnamon, her hair was long and she had an engaging smile, she was sexy as hell and received male attention wherever she went. Sunny had married a year too soon. She married a man she didn’t love for security purposes, in her profession; she couldn’t rely on benefits, pensions or social security. Although her husband’s job didn’t pay much, her husband’s job did offer a good benefits package. She had become accustomed to being the breadwinner. This was before she met Marlon Scott. Marlon was tall and extremely handsome. He was brown skinned with natural curly hair and pearly white teeth. Marlon’s father had been a valet, bodyguard and chauffeur for Las Vegas mobsters, he was well respected and Marlon received the same respect. Marlon left Las Vegas in his 20’s and became a very successful record executive. He made his fortune from investing millions in annuities and the stock market. He retired from the music business in his 30’s and returned to Las Vegas where he operated several successful businesses. Marlon had the uncanny ability to get along with successful businessmen and established gangsters. He was well connected in both areas. He was often attired in Italian suits, diamond cuff lings, a silk tie accompanied by a solid gold tie pin and he often wore a platinum watch and diamond rings. He was entertaining several friends at a gentlemen’s club, suddenly, he became transfixed by a dancer; she was stunning with charisma and sex appeal, her name was Sunny Warren. Marlon took her to dinner that evening. They kept in touch, whenever she performed in Vegas; she contacted Marlon. While the other dancers were picked up by a car service that catered to the adult industry-at the airport, Marlon sent a limo to pick up Sunny. After her show; they would go dancing and stay up late playing chess into the wee hours of the morning. After chess, they would have a late dinner and discuss foreign policy, world events and the stock market. Marlon was impressed with her articulation. Marlon often gave her expensive jewelry and took her shopping. Sometimes, during the course of shopping, when he was called away on business, he would leave his black AMEX credit card with her and tell her to buy whatever she wanted; they would hook up later. The limo would take Marlon to his destination and return to the store to pick up Sunny. Sunny would often accompany Marlon to the VIP baccarat parlors in the casinos; she
    • was his good luck charm. They were also regulars at the Las Vegas shows; their favorite was “O” at the “Bellagio.” After the show, they often dined at the “Renoir” restaurant in the “Mirage” hotel. He respected her marriage and never pressured her for sex; he just enjoyed her company. He had several women he slept with on a regular basis but they didn’t have the intelligence of Sunny. They shared a special connection. She was his diamond in the rough. It was known around town, Sunny has power behind her (Marlon); she was off-limits and untouchable. Since she started dating Marlon, she noticed a change in attitude from several people, including club owners, they treated her with respect and went out of their way to please her; they also referred to her as Miss Warren instead of Sunny. Sunny called her best friend Adrianna, let’s do dinner tonight, I’ll pick you up in an hour. CAMERON: Cameron answered the phone; it was Marco. Hey man, the package you sent was lovely, my investors were very impressed. After the film is shot, you will receive your cut, $50,000 within the next few weeks. Cameron let out a whistle, that’s the kind of money I’m talking about. Cameron said, listen man, I wish I could talk to you longer but I got to go, I will look for you online tonight. Thanks for calling. Cameron was driving down the strip when he spotted them leaving a restaurant; he recognized Sunny Warren, the popular centerfold, he would become an instant millionaire if he put her in a snuff film. He kept a safe distance as they got in a white Jaguar. Cameron followed them to a house. Both women got out of the car. Cameron waited a few minutes before he put in his colored contacts; he got a black bag from under the seat and exited the car. He went to the back of the house, took out a glass-cutter and cut the glass. He entered the house, walking silently. He walked towards the voices near the front of the house and he took out his gun. Sunny and Adrianna were exchanging stories about the sex industry until Sunny looked up, a man in black walked towards them from the kitchen, she screamed, it was too late, he had a hand around Adrianna’s throat as he pointed his gun towards Sunny. Sunny continued screaming, he told her, shut the fuck up before I blow your friend’s brains out!
    • Sunny shut up, Cameron removed his hand from Adrianna’s throat, Sunny asked, what do you want? We can give you money and jewels. Cameron laughed, you stupid bitch, I hate women like you. I’m here to kidnap both of you. Both women looked perplexed, they had never heard of women in the sex industry being kidnapped. Sunny thought, what is this fool talking about? Meanwhile, Adrianna’s was thinking of the security moves her brother had taught her, she slid over on the couch discreetly, to get a better angle on Cameron. Suddenly, without warning, she kicked Cameron in the ribs, Cameron was startled, he regained his composure and slapped her, she gauged at his eyes, pulling out his contacts. He hit her across the face with the gun; she went down. He thought, damn, my gun left a gash on her face, not good for snuff films. Cameron stood over her and pointed the gun at her head, he pulled the trigger but the gun jammed. Just then, he was startled by the ring of the telephone, a answering machine picked up the call, the caller said, hey Sunny, this is Nate, your next door neighbor, was that a woman’s scream I heard coming from your place, I’m calling 911 and I’m on my way over. Cameron grabbed Sunny by her arm and shouted, come on, you’re coming with me! They rushed out the back door. When they got to the car, Cameron pulled out his cell phone and called Luke, he shouted in the phone, meet me at the docks now! After transporting Sunny onto the boat, Cameron rushed home. He had to make a run for it; the other woman had saw his face and his eye color. He hurriedly threw his belongings into two duffel bags and packed a suitcase. Cameron called Marco and said, the heat is on, Marco asked, what do you mean? Cameron said, they may be on to me but in no way are you implicated, you can still use the girls. Marco breathed a sigh of relief, is there anything I can do, Cameron said yes, I need a fake passport within the hour, I have to get out of Vegas in a hurry. Marco said, not a problem, get a pen and paper. Cameron wrote down the information and left. He was in such a hurry; he accidentally left his laptop. JACKS: A contact at the police department informed Jacks that the killer had abducted another sex industry worker and left one behind, her name was Adrianna Dawson. The police were interviewing the witness at the hospital and the police discovered contact lenses at the crime scene that belonged to the killer, when they ran the DNA through the database, they didn’t get a match.
    • They arrived at the hospital, a guard was posted outside Adrianna’s room, Jacks turned to Dayna and said, work your magic. As Dayna walked towards the guard, he looked up and thought, damn, she is fine, wait a minute, is that Dayna Silva, the video girl? Dayna asked the guard, where is the cafeteria, the guard disregarded the question and asked, are you Dayna Silva? She blinked her eyelashes and said yes. He said, I’m a big fan of yours and I must say, you are even more beautiful in person. Dayna said, thank-you. I was visiting my boyfriend in the hospital, he just broke up with me, you seem like such a nice guy and I don’t want to eat alone, I really need someone to talk to, I saw a cute little Italian café around the corner that would be ideal The guard thought, damn, is it my lucky night or what? Not everyday a brotha gets asked to dinner with Dayna Silva. Unfortunately, he said, I can’t leave my post, I could lose my job. Dayna pouted and said, don’t you have someone to relieve you, he said no, I wish I did. Dayna asked him, have you been on a break yet? He said no, just then a doctor passed by, Dayna said; this guard has been standing post all night without a break or lunch break. Can we go grab a quick meal and return? The doctor opened the door and looked in on the patient, he said, I don’t see why not, the patient seems to be resting and I’ll keep a close eye on her until you return. Go on, I want tell a soul. The guard smiled, as Dayna led him out of the hospital. The doctor was called away on a ‘Code Blue,’ Jacks and G-Mac entered the room. Adrianna was awake but groggy; a bandage covered the right side of her face. G-Mac and Jacks introduced themselves, they told Adrianna, they worked for an elite unit and were trying to track down the man who assaulted her, could she supply them with any useful information. I’ll tell you what I told the detectives, he broke into Sunny’s house, we were just sitting around talking, he told us; he was going to kidnap us. I got a real good look at him. He was mulatto, what I remember the most, his eyes were a weird color, a color I have never seen before, a grayish type of color. The reason I know this was his real eye color is because I gouged out his contact lenses.
    • Suddenly, Adrianna started crying, she said, he took Sunny, please find her. Suddenly, two dignified well-dressed black men entered the room. One of the men was Marlon, the other was his security/fixer, Phelps. Marlon introduced himself to Jacks and G-Mac while Phelps interviewed Adrianna, she gave him the same information that she had given Jacks and G-Mac. G-Mac and Jacks informed Marlon, they worked in intelligence and they were tracking the suspect. Just then, Dayna returned with the security guard, the guard became upset and ushered everyone out of the room. Dayna and the guard traded phone numbers, she promised to keep in touch. Marlon and Phelps couldn’t stop staring at Dayna. In the hallway, Marlon looked at everyone and said, we need to talk; my limousine is waiting outside. G-Mac nodded. In the limo, Marlon took out his cell and called “The House Of Blues Foundation Room,” the most exclusive VIP club in Las Vegas, located on the 43 floor of the “Mandalay Bay” rd Hotel & Casino. You can only gain entry by private elevator and your name has to be on a list to be admitted. They arrived at the club and were escorted to the main lounge, surrounded by comfortable sofas and a fireplace. The club also had a media screening room and several bars and an outdoor balcony that offered breathtaking views of the strip. Marlon led everyone into a private room. Everyone was seated. Marlon looked around the table and asked, would someone mind telling me why intelligence-personnel is involved in this particular case? Dayna spoke up, the first victim was my friend Kandy Bee, everyone is during this for my benefit, and all of us are affiliated with intelligence. Jacks added, the girl who went missing before Sunny was named Rebecca, my husband and I met her at a party, a few days prior to her abduction, she seemed like a nice lady and she left the party to spend time with her son. So we all have a stake in this situation. Marlon said, I’m sorry to hear about Kandy and Rebecca. He continued, the latest abduction, Sunny Warren is a very close and dear to my heart. As soon as I heard about her abduction, I called my security guy Phelps; he has agreed to assist with her abduction. Although Sunny is married, when I called her husband, he just seemed interested in her last paycheck and if I had the correct address to mail it to him. When I asked him would he be coming to Las Vegas, he said, he had faith in the police department, before he hung
    • up, I heard another woman in the background. So, I have taken it upon myself to get to the bottom of this situation. I have the contacts and resources; maybe we can combine our resources to crack this case wide open, I am not satisfied with the police investigation. Maybe Phelps can work with you. The last thing G-Mac wanted was a civilian to get in everybody’s way. Marlon saw G- Mac’s expression and turned to Phelps, he said, Phelps, give these people your credentials. Phelps said, I have a military background; I belonged to an special unit in special forces. I was classified as a ‘3 Charley/Sweeper,’ which is defined as: One of the most dangerous and secretive covert positions in the world. We are more deadly than a top assassin, with reflexes quicker than a martial artist. We also kill silently and quickly with top-notch elimination skills. We also operate as clean-up specialists when operations go wrong. Out of the eleven sweepers that exist in the world, I am the only African-American sweeper. G-Mac had a change of heart after hearing his credentials, hell; he wanted to shake the brotha’s hand. He welcomed him aboard. For the next hour, everybody shared information and agreed to work together. First course of business, Phelps was going to contact a friend at a local television station and have her broadcast a description of the suspect, including his gray eyes. Afterwards, everybody went to the Mirage where Marlon was escorted to his baccarat parlor with his private dealer. Phelps took the opportunity to ask Dayna was she seeing anyone? She replied, she was engaged; Phelps understood and backed off. Dayna added, I might have a friend who you would be interested in, let me get back to you on that, Phelps smiled and walked towards the baccarat table. G-Mac and Phelps joined in. Everyone broke even. Afterwards, the men joined the women at the slot machines and the blackjack table. They left the casino to catch an old school concert at the “Hard Rock Café & Hotel” featuring the Isley Brothers, the O’Jays and the Temptations. The next morning, everyone was finishing up breakfast, Jacks had cooked hot links, grits, and homemade blueberry biscuits; suddenly, they heard a frantic knock on the door, G- Mac retrieved his weapon before he answered. It was Phelps, an important development had occurred.
    • Phelps said; we have a lead. My friend at the station ran a sketch of the suspect, she also reported he had gray eyes. The station received several calls from people who lived in a condominium complex, they all said, a guy who fits that description lives in their community, I have the address right here. Everybody got dressed and rushed out the door. They arrived at Cameron’s condo thirty minutes before the police. They searched and found nothing of significance but Phelps took the computer hard drive. When they heard sirens, they left out the back. Phelps said, I’m going to take this hard drive to a friend of mine who works at police headquarters, he is on vacation this week, after he retrieves the information off it, I will anonymously mail it to the police. I will meet you at the safe house later this evening. The hard drive was a treasure trove of evidence. Emails and Instant messages were retrieved. The team was able to piece everything together. Phelps also had Cameron’s phone logs, they noticed, after each abduction, he made a call to a number that belonged to a man named Luke Henderson. G-Mac and Phelps broke into Luke’s home at gunpoint. After repeated blows to the face, he finally gave them the information they desired, the women were shipped to Prague to appear in snuff films and Cameron got a fake passport to gain entry into Niagara Falls. G-Mac asked Luke to write down the Prague contact names and demanded to know, are the women still alive? Luke nodded his head and said, they are being kept in a dungeon until the film equipment arrives, they will be killed during filming, which is scheduled to take place within a week. Phelps gave Luke a piece of paper and a pencil, he wrote down one name, Marco. Phelps grabbed the paper out of his hand and said, hey G-Mac, isn’t this the same name we retrieved from the email and instant message communication, G-Mac looked at the name and said, yes it is. Luke added, he use to live in Russia but he has moved his operation to Prague. He is currently preparing for the film shoot. It’s also rumored that he’s part of the Russian mafia. G-Mac and Phelps exchanged nervous looks, regarding the last piece of information. Phelps stood over Luke, without warning, he closed his fist, brought his fist up to a certain angle and hit Luke directly in the center of the forehead; Luke slumped over, dead.
    • G-Mac looked at Phelps and said, damn, did you kill him? Phelps said yes, with a deathblow; lets get out of here. G-Mac said, brotha, you are lethal, Phelps laughed. When they got in the car, Phelps called Marlon with an update. Marlon listened and said; money is no object. Do what you have to do; I want her back! G-Mac and Phelps returned to the safe house and informed everyone, they were going to split into two groups and call in additional firepower for overseas wet work. One group would go to Prague to retrieve the women; the other group would go to Niagara Falls to find Cameron. G-Mac asked Jacks to call Nikki and get Ashley Perry’s phone number, brief her on the situation and tell her, we need her in Las Vegas tomorrow morning, it’s urgent. They arrived at the airport to pick-up Ashley; imagine their shock when Nikki stepped off the plane with Ashley. Everybody hugged. Jacks asked Nikki, are you sure you’re up to this? Nikki said yes, this is what I need instead of sitting around the house crying my eyes out, day in and day out, that’s not healthy. G-Mac added, how is your nose and arm? Nikki said, I’m fine, at least the flesh wound isn’t on my shooting arm and a doctor reset my nose. I feel great! Dayna took the opportunity to tell Phelps, remember my friend, the one I wanted to introduce you to? Phelps nodded, Dayna said, that’s her, pointing at Nikki. Take the time to know her because she just lost her fiancé. Phelps said, she sure is attractive, what does she do in intelligence? She is a ‘high level executive action specialist.’ Phelps said, no shit! Not too many black females are ‘wet work assassins?’ Phelps asked, who is the blonde? Dayna said, her name is Ashley Perry, she is a freelance assassin, from what I hear, she was recruited after winning a silver medal in the marksmanship category at the Olympics. Nikki trained her. Dayna said, come on, I’ll introduce you to both women. When they returned to the safe house, Nikki and Ashley were brought up to date on the situation. Phelps said, we are going to split into two teams. G-Mac added, Marco is a ‘Redfella’ with ties to the Russian mob; we have to tread very carefully. Russian mobsters are the most ruthless and treacherous in the world, they will retaliate if we take out one of their own by killing our families and friends. G-Mac turned to Dayna, Marco is also a notorious womanizer despite having a girlfriend, we are going to create a scenario involving you; I’ve briefed Phelps, he will explain everything to you on the plane. Lear has chartered two jets. G-Mac added, Jacks and I will go to Niagara Falls in pursuit of Cameron. Phelps, Ashley, Dayna and Nikki, all of you will go to Prague, in pursuit of Marco.
    • During the plane ride, Phelps updated Dayna on her role in the upcoming mission. Afterwards, he struck up a conversation with Nikki, they shared the same interests and Nikki was impressed with his background, they seemed to enjoy each other. Phelps thought, it was refreshing to talk to a woman who understood and participated in his line of work. They talked about guns, silencers and jazz. Nikki told him, you seem to be a nice man and I find you attractive but please understand, I just lost someone very special. Phelps said, I understand, I won’t pressure you and we can take it slow but I have to admit, I am attracted to you but I will respect your feelings. Nikki smiled and said, thank-you. By the time the Las Vegas police issued a police bulletin for Cameron Franklin with an accompanying photograph, G-Mac and Jacks had already landed in Niagara Falls. CAMERON: A day earlier, Cameron had explored the city and visited the ‘Criminals Hall Of Wax Museums,’ which featured Al Capone and Jeffrey Dahmer. Cameron wondered, maybe they’ll feature my likeness one day. From there, he went to the ‘Guiness Book Of World Records’ Museum. After an hour, he left to take a boat tour of Niagara Falls. The falls were a breathtaking sight, among the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. The falls were illuminated at night; the effect was spectacular. After the tour, Cameron waited in a casino parking lot, while he waited, he decided to change his MO, his victims no longer had to work in the sex industry, they just had to be attractive. Marco even stated in one of his emails, a few of the investors were suggesting that he start abducting white women, he could make more money, a bigger audience. Cameron was hesitant because law enforcement and the media would pay more attention if the victims were white, for now, he would stick to African-Americans. He didn’t wait long for his next victim, a beautiful black woman emerged from the casino; she walked towards the parking lot. Cameron got out of his car and fell in step behind her. G-MAC/JACKS: He followed her quietly, he hurried his pace when she pulled out her keys, suddenly he was on her, without warning, she turned around and zapped him on the neck for three seconds with a 775,000 volt (Stun Master) stun gun, the most powerful stun gun in the world, Cameron went down in a heap, withering on the ground contorted and in extreme
    • pain. Jacks took the opportunity to kick him between the legs, Cameron screamed as he heard footsteps approaching, he thought, damn, I have to gather enough strength to get up and run; his thoughts were interrupted by a swift kick to the chin, he fell backwards, defeated. G-Mac pulled him up and shouted, look at me you sorry mothafucka; Cameron adjusted his bloodshot gray eyes on G-Mac. G-Mac continued, you just tried to assault my wife, we work for the government, and we’ve been trailing you, we been staking out places here for the last day trying to draw your sick ass out in the open and it worked. You shouldn’t have come to a small town, not too many places for you to stake out victims, that’s why we found you so quickly, figured you would turn up here. My wife has been leaving that casino every hour on the hour for the last three hours, we were hoping you would make your move and you did. I fell in step behind you when you were following her but she didn’t need me because she whupped your sorry black ass. G-Mac pulled out handcuffs and handcuffed Cameron and put him in the backseat of the car, they went to the airport and flew to Las Vegas and turned him over to the cops. Afterwards, G-Mac said, I hope I didn’t make a mistake by not killing him, remember what happened with Kendall when we didn’t kill him, Jacks muttered, yeah I remember, how could I forget. Everything will be okay honey, let’s go home, I miss the kids. G- Mac said, me too. Jacks said, oops, I almost forgot, she pulled out her blackberry and sent a text message to Nikki, ‘Endgame in Niagara Falls.’ NIKKI: Nikki, Ashley, Phelps and Dayna had just arrived in the Czech Republic and were walking through the airport when Nikki received a text message from Jacks on her blackberry. She told the crew, Jacks and G-Mac took down Cameron successfully, time for us to do our thing with Marco. Lear had arranged for a car to pick them up at the airport, enroute to the safe house, they passed town-square and the Prague castle. They arrived at a house, located across from the Vltava River. They unpacked and got down to business. Nikki said, I just checked my email on my laptop. Lear emailed me Marco’s complete dossier. He owns a nightclub and restaurant in Sona. He holds court at the club on Saturday, since tonight is Saturday, we can make our move. He also owns a house in the
    • affluent neighborhood of Dejvice. And, if that isn’t enough, he also owns a condominium in Vrsovice where he entertains women; despite having a girlfriend named Hannah. Lear also included Hannah’s information in the dossier; which states that she is insanely jealous with a very bad temper, she once stabbed a man in a jealous rage. Dayna arrived at the club first; she was stunning in a low cut tight fitting Versace dress. Every man in the place leered at her. She sat down by herself. Nikki, Phelps and Ashley arrived later and took a table in the corner. Within fifteen minutes, a bearded man materialized out of nowhere, he told Dayna, madam, the owner of the club would like to meet you. Dayna blushed and said; I’m flattered, the man led her to Marco’s table. After brief conversation, Dayna left the club with Marco in a limousine. The crew followed the limousine discreetly. The limousine arrived at a condominium in Vrsovice (known as Upper V). After ten minutes, Nikki called Hannah on her cell phone and said, ‘you don’t know me but there is something you need to know, your boyfriend Marco is entertaining another woman in his condo, right now, and the woman is black.’ Nikki hung up the phone. Within fifteen minutes, a car arrived, the woman got out of the car and stormed up the stairs to the condominium, she let herself in. She took off her pumps and walked towards the bathroom. Outside, Nikki, Ashley and Phelps got out of the car and walked towards the condo. The woman opened the bedroom door and saw Marco having sex with a beautiful black woman, Hannah screamed, ‘you dirty low down motherfucker,’ Marco turned around startled, Hannah, what are you doing here? It’s not what it looks like; look, she came on to me. Hannah glared at Dayna and said in a heavy accent, you ‘coca-cola bitch.’ Hannah pulled out a gun, Marco was frightened and asked, what are you doing? Lets talk about this. The first shot hit him in the chest; Dayna dived on the side of the bed. Phelps came up behind Hannah and knocked the gun out of her hand. As Marco lay dying on the floor, Phelps came around to the side of the bed and helped Dayna up while Nikki and Ashley contained Hannah. Hannah asked, who are you people? No one answered. Phelps took out a gun and laid it across the bed where Marco was laying, he then pointed the gun at Hannah and shot her dead.
    • He wiped his fingerprints off the gun and placed it in Marco’s hand, Marco expired one minute later. Phelps looked at Dayna and said, time to go ‘coca-cola,’ everybody laughed. Dayna said; I guess that was her sad attempt at a racial slur. The crew left and headed to Marco’s house in Dejvice. The house was heavily guarded. Nikki called Lear on her Vertu cell phone (International Worldwide Access). She said Lear, we have six hostiles guarding the house; there will be casualties, we are going to have to resort to Plan B. Lear had her tech man send emails dated a week earlier to Marco’s email address. The emails were threatening and forged to look like they came from a rival syndicate. The emails stated, ‘we will come to your house and kill you and your men unless you cut us into your lucrative drug market.’ You have one week to decide or else. –OMINUS Dayna would be the lookout as Ashley, Nikki and Phelps exited the car armed with firepower and bulletproof vests. They stormed the house and opened fire. Ashley took out two men within five seconds, Phelps and Nikki took out three; one man was left alive. Phelps asked him, where are the women? He said ‘no English.’ Ashley took the butt of her gun and hit him across the face, he screamed in pain. She said, we came a long way, don’t fuck with us, where are the women, asshole? He pointed downward. Phelps took the opportunity to snap the man’s neck with one hand. The man slumped over in his chair, dead. Ashley said, damn, in all of my years of intelligence, I have never seen anything like that; you broke that man’s neck with one hand. As they walked towards the basement, Nikki whispered to Ashley, Phelps is a former ‘Sweeper/3 Charley.’ Ashley said, you have got to be kidding me, no shit? The team saw a door in the distance and cautiously approached, Phelps put his ear to the door, he heard whimpering and idle chatter, suddenly, without warning, he kicked the door in. They located Sunny and Rebecca, gagged and bounded. They untied them and undid the tape. Both women cried as Ashley, Phelps and Nikki helped them up the stairs and out the
    • front door. They got into the car and Dayna drove to the airport. Nikki sent Jacks a blackberry text message, ‘Endgame in Prague.’ A week later, Marco’s associates had a private meeting in Russia. One of the men said, poor Marco, what a terrible way to go, he never could keep his cock in his pants. Another man said, don’t you think it’s strange, Marco is murdered and on the same night his men are slaughtered, and the women he had captive, disappear into thin air, and Marco never mentioned anything about threats from ‘Ominus,’ something doesn’t seem right here, too much of a coincidence and DNA indicated another woman was in bed with Marco, strangely, this DNA is untraceable, where is this woman? The other man said, put your mind to rest, you saw the emails; we have to retaliate against ‘Ominus.’ They are behind this. The entire ‘Ominus’ crew will be taken out within the next few days; they will pay for this. Now, lets get to the next thing on the agenda for today. CAMERON: Rebecca, Sunny and Adrianna testified against Cameron. DNA left at the scene of Kandy Bee’s murder matched Cameron’s DNA. He was convicted of first degree murder and three counts of assault and two counts of kidnapping. He was sentenced to life without parole. Sunny divorced her husband; he threatened her with alimony until Phelps forcibly talked him out of it. Sunny retired from the adult industry and married Marlon in a lavish Las Vegas ceremony attended by celebrities, showgirls and politicians. Phelps served as the best man. Phelps and Nikki started off as friends but slowly progressed to boyfriend and girlfriend. Phelps relocated to Los Angeles to be near Nikki and is now a member of the team. Rebecca got out of the adult industry to spend more time with her son. She owns and operates an adult website from home. The site generates six figures per year. BALLIN 6: THE TRENT’S: Simon and Melissa Trent were an affluent white couple who lived in an exclusive Texas suburb, homes were priced at $5 million to $7 million dollars. The Trent’s told their neighbors they made their fortune by selling a company (before the
    • tech boom went bust) they founded in Silicon Valley. The Trent’s had two sons, Adam 13, and Ryan 6. Melissa was a soccer mom who shuttled her son’s to and from soccer practice and ice-skating lessons. Melissa also attended PTA meetings on a regular basis. At 13, Adam had a cell phone and numerous pre-paid American Express gift cards. His parents promised to get him a convertible BMW on his 16 birthday. That still wasn’t th enough, Adam had expensive taste and often asked his parents for money. Simon Trent spent his time coaching a little league team that consisted of boys who lived in the community. Melissa was preparing brownies and chocolate chip cookies for a church picnic. Simon was looking for his favorite tie and the boys were tying their shoes. The Trent’s arrived at church; their pastor preached a beautiful sermon. Afterwards, everyone went to a nearby park for a picnic. Everyone had a good time, eating BBQ, watermelon, potato salad, cake and baked beans. Simon and Melissa played volleyball while the boys played softball and touch football. The Trent’s returned home exhausted. After Ryan changed into his pajamas, he asked Melissa? Mom, please read me a story before I go to bed. Melissa picked him up and kissed him on the cheek. She said, okay, go brush your teeth and I will be in to read you a story in ten minutes. After Ryan fell asleep, Melissa went in the study where her husband was waiting. She sat in front of the computer and wired money into several overseas accounts. Unbeknownst to their neighbors, the Trent’s were not the people they pretended to be, Melissa was a former money manager and Simon was a former IT technician for a Fortune 500 company. They made their money through three illegal ventures, all related to pedophilia. They sold passwords to kiddie porn websites. Customers purchased passwords, priced at $50-$75 dollars annually, to enter the website. They had over 1 million customers. The Trent’s also owned and operated a website that advertised, ‘Find your biological parent or parents.’ This website targeted adopted children or children seeking out a
    • biological parent. When the child contacted the site, a hired rep would tell them not to tell their adoptive parents that they were in contact with them. After the child’s trust was gained, the rep would lie and tell the child, we have found your biological parent(s) and they want to meet you. The child would eagerly agree to the meeting. Instead of meeting the parent(s), the child would meet a pedophile or abductor and never been seen or heard from again. The Trent’s had recently launched a black market site where they planned to auction off women and children as sex slaves. Men from all over the world would have the opportunity to bid on the victims. The Trent’s grossed in excess of $10-$15 million each year, from their combined businesses. RAYMOND: Raymond Brown, a former Golden Gloves boxer, lived in Huntsville, Texas, a small community, 70 miles outside of Houston. Brown never fully recovered from his wife Daphne abandoning him and their daughter Angie, for another man. Angie was just an infant when she left. Raymond missed dancing with Daphne to Johnny Mathis love songs. He also missed her laugh. He still loved her. Angie often asked Raymond about Daphne, Raymond would change the subject, the pain still lingered. He never saw Daphne again and she never called to ask about Angie, nor did she send her Christmas or birthday cards but that didn’t stop Angie from asking numerous questions about her mother. Raymond eventually told Angie things about her mother. Angie missed having a mother and was envious of her classmates when their mother picked them up from school or when they brought in desserts their mother had made. She was desperate to have a mother figure in her life. Raymond worked for the local cable company where he installed cable TV in home in and around Huntsville. Over the years he had several girlfriends, the majority of them got jealous of the attention he gave his daughter. Raymond rushed home from work to celebrate Angie’s 14 birthday. After eating cake th and ice cream, Raymond took her to WalMart to pick out her gift.
    • They ran into their neighbor Emma Dean, Raymond referred to her as Miss Emma. He said hi, Miss Emma, after they exchanged pleasantries, he asked Miss Emma if he and Angie could fish in her pond over the weekend. Now Raymond, you know both of you are like family, you don’t have to ask permission, just show up with your fishing poles. Meanwhile, the bills were mounting and Raymond put in for overtime. Raymond had a teenage niece watch Angie while he was at work. Angie would stay in her room and surf the Internet. Out of curiosity; she brought up Google and typed in lost parent. Hundreds of website links popped up but one stood out in particular, the advertisement read: ‘Find your biological parent or parents.’ Angie clicked the link and was routed to a website. She entered the site. After reading the information on the site, she decided to save the URL in her favorites. She logged off and went to bed. On the weekend Raymond took Angie fishing behind Miss Emma’s house. They caught several catfish. Miss Emma invited them in and fried up a platter of fish and fries for them. What they didn’t eat, they took home. While Raymond was working overtime, Angie followed a routine; she did her homework and went to the site. She finally got up enough nerve to fill out a form. She included all the information she could remember about her mother. The next day, Angie received an email from the site. She was assigned a female contact person named ‘Mona.’ Over the next few weeks they interacted via email on a regular basis. She began to feel comfortable with Mona and was ecstatic when she was informed, that a second representative was also assigned to find her mother. Angie returned home from school and prepared a TV dinner, after she finished eating, she logged on the computer while her cousin talked on the phone to her boyfriend. Mona had sent a urgent email, Angie’s mother had been located and wanted to meet her but she was advised, don’t tell your father because he may prevent you from meeting her. Angie was thrilled; she couldn’t wait to meet her mother. Mona also informed her, since we consider your case unique, we will waive our fee. She responded to the email, thank-you so much, I am excited, can’t wait to meet her, don’t worry, I won’t tell my father just email me back with the time and place. You guys are awesome! Two days later, Angie received an email saying, your mother has paid for a bus ticket for you to come to Houston to meet her in two weeks, we will send the ticket to the address
    • we have in our files. You should receive it in a few days. The ticket arrived in two days; Angie put it under his mattress and counted down the days. As Angie slept, she thought, my mom has been in Houston all along, wonder why she didn’t contact me. TWO WEEKS LATER: Raymond worked half a day and got off work at lunchtime, he decided to have a few beers at a nearby bar with a couple of co-workers. After a few beers, an altercation was taking place at the end of the bar, a man was screaming loudly and pointing his finger in a woman’s face, suddenly, he slapped her. Raymond didn’t like the sight of a man hitting a woman; he went to the woman’s defense. The guy turned on him and told him to mind his own business. Raymond turned to leave; the guy hit him over the head with a beer bottle. Raymond turned around and broke his nose and ribs. The guy was in a fetal position moaning on the floor when the cops arrived. The cops arrived and arrested Raymond, the guy screamed; I’m going to press charges on your ass. Raymond was booked and led to a jail cell. He was appointed a legal aid attorney for his arraignment in the morning. He met with his lawyer before he appeared in court, his lawyer assured him, this is your first offense; you will probably get community service. Instead, Raymond was sentenced to 6 months in jail for assault. They found out later that the Judge was the victim’s first cousin. On the other side of town, Angie was boarding a bus for Houston. 90 minutes later, the bus arrived in Houston; a well-dressed white woman was holding a sign with Angie’s name on it. She walked towards the sign, the woman introduced herself and told Angie; I am your representative, ‘Mona,’ Angie felt at ease. Mona helped Angie with her luggage as they walked towards the parking lot. When they arrived at the car, Mona said, I’m going to take you to meet your mother now; Angie smiled and thanked her profusely.
    • Angie got in the passenger side, Mona turned the key in the ignition, at that precise moment, a man who had been lying on the backseat floor, raised up, Angie felt a presence in the backseat and turned around to face a man. A look of fright crossed her face, she tried to open the car door but the locks were child proof, she started screaming. The man hurriedly grabbed her arm from behind and injected her with a needle. She lost consciousness. Across town in jail, Raymond tried frantically to reach Angie, with no success. He called Miss Emma; she said she would check on Angie. When Raymond called Miss Emma back, he was informed, Angie was not there but your ‘fast’ niece is there, practically fornicating with her boyfriend on the couch. When I asked about Angie, she said she hadn’t seen her all day. Raymond thought, Angie always came straight home from school, if she was going to be late she would call, something didn’t feel right, something was wrong. He asked Miss Emma to call her cousin who was one of Angie’s teachers and ask if Angie was in school today; he would call her back in a hour. When he called Miss Emma back, he was informed, Angie wasn’t in school today and I went to the police station on your behalf, they told me I had to wait 48 hours before I can file a missing persons report. Raymond got a sick feeling in the pit of his stomach; he had to get out of jail to find his child. Raymond contacted his legal aid lawyer, the lawyer said, he would try his best to get him out but he was doubtful it could be done. He encouraged Raymond not to get into any altercations, that way his sentence could be cut in half. Raymond screamed, “Are you listening to me, my daughter is missing and I am locked up in here, I need to find my child!” The lawyer sighed and shrugged his shoulders; Mr. Brown, I’m sorry, wish I could do more. DANI: Dani Duboce attended ‘Louisiana State University’ (LSU) in Baton Rouge; she was a junior in college majoring in Police Science. She wanted to go into law enforcement like her big cousin ‘Jacks.’
    • Dani was considered the most gorgeous girl on campus, numerous guys tried to date her but she declined, she focused on her studies, she would have enough time for dating when she graduated. She got so much attention; she had a container of pepper spray in her backpack. Dani stayed in touch with Jacks despite the fact her mother Annette and Jacks had a big falling out at a family reunion a few years ago, they had never gotten along. Jacks tried to intervene and make peace with Annette at the reunion, but Annette was drunk and cursed her out in front of everybody. Telling Jacks, ‘you think you better than me cause you got long hair and you think you smart, you ain’t shit, stay the fuck away from me and go back to your perfect life in California.’ According to older relatives, Annette always had a problem with Jacks, even when they were kids; she acted jealous and resentful towards Jacks. Annette was very color conscious, despite being light skinned, Jacks was still a shade darker than Annette and Annette didn’t let her forget it. Annette loved to brag about her French roots but neglected to talk about her African-American roots. Annette also had a problem with Jacks having longer hair than her and she tried to keep her daughter Dani from associating with ‘darker’ relatives. Due to Annette’s color issues, the family distanced themselves from her. The family embraced Dani because she was the opposite of her mother. Dani once told her mother, ‘You need to really come off the color crap, African- Americans have enough racism directed towards them from other races, we don’t need racism directed at us from people within our race. You are the reason our family isn’t close knit and you are the reason that Daddy left, I don’t blame him for not staying in touch. You have issues you need to address.’ Annette looked at Dani like she was crazy. Annette wasn’t aware that Dani spoke to Jacks on a regular basis. If it weren’t for Jacks, Dani wouldn’t be attending LSU; Jacks used her contacts and got her a full 4-year scholarship unbeknownst to her mother. Annette thought Dani got in on an academic scholarship. A few years ago, Dani’s mother was in an abusive relationship. Not only was her boyfriend abusive, he made passes at Dani when Annette wasn’t around. He also got Annette hooked on drugs. Annette finally came out of her fog when she caught her boyfriend masturbating over Dani’s bed while she slept, she kicked him out and checked into a rehab center, she had been clean for a year and she worked at a homeless shelter in New Orleans. Dani was leaving Baton Rouge to go to New Orleans for the weekend; she loved the rich culture of the ‘Big Easy.’ The delicious seafood, Cajun cuisine, the Mardi Gras, jazz
    • music and the carriage rides. There was no other city like New Orleans in the world. When she arrived, she called Annette and told her, she would hook up with her that evening, she was going to meet some friends for lunch on Bourbon Street. She met her friends; they ate crawfish, fried crab and gumbo. Afterwards, they went to the French Quarter, they had had a great time as they sipped chicory coffee and ate beignets. They hit the clubs and partied until the sun came up. Dani overheard someone in the bar say; ‘a hurricane warning is going into effect.’ When they left the bar, a man stood outside in dark glasses, blowing a saxophone. Dani arrived at her mother’s house early the next morning; she let herself, went to her old bedroom and crashed. The next day, Dani and Annette spent the day indoors due to the weather. They watched soap operas, ate lunch and talked about college. The weather continued to pound the golf coast. Annette looked outdoors, she told Dani, you be careful going back to school tomorrow, it’s really bad out there and according to the weather channel, its only going to get worse. The next day, Dani was preparing to go back to LSU, she was packing a big lunch in her backpack when Hurricane Katrina hit, within the hour; the levees would break. Dani screamed, Ma, the house is sinking, lets get out of here now! Annette rushed to the front; Dani grabbed her cell phone and put it in her backpack. She took Annette’s hand and led her out the front door. When they exited the house, they were submerged in water as neighbors walked around in chaos, other neighbors watched their houses sink underwater. It was a disaster. As Dani and Annette walked in the water, their neighbor, Mattie joined them. They weren’t in the water more than a few minutes when Mattie screamed; something in the water had bit her. Dani and Annette helped her out of the water, she collapsed on the side of the rode, Dani inspected her wound, it was a snake bite. Mattie was sweating profusely and shaking. She told them, leave me, save your own lives, ever since I lost my Leonard last year, I don’t have anyone, both of you have your whole lives ahead of you; go on, I will only slow you down. Dani said, no way, she reached down to pull Mattie up, Mattie wouldn’t budge; they were forced to leave her on the side of the road. Annette told Dani, lets stay out of the water, it’s probably polluted with alligator and snakes, lets walk on dry land. Lets make it to the shelter I work at; it’s only a few miles away. Dani said, I think we should call Cousin Jacks, with her connections; she can send
    • a helicopter to get us out of here. Annette said, we don’t need to involve her in this; we can take care of ourselves! JACKS: Jacks cooked G-Mac and the kids a late breakfast of Black Forest Ham steaks, buttermilk pancakes with warm maple syrup and over easy eggs. They were finishing up breakfast when a news bulletin came on. The newscaster said, ‘Due to Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, the levee’s broke and 80 percent of New Orleans is under water.’ Jacks looked at G-Mac and said oh my God! I have to call my cousin’s Annette and Dani. Jacks nervously dialed there number but couldn’t get through. Jack’s tried Annette’s work number, again, she couldn’t get through. G-Mac embraced her, it will be okay honey; they were probably evacuated and sent to a shelter. I’m sure they will call you and let you know everything is okay, once they get settled, Jacks said, you’re probably right. DANI: Dani and Annette made it to the shelter. It was a disorganized mess; they could barely get through the crowd. Annette led Dani to an overcrowded room where counselors were setting up cots. Annette greeted the counselors and started helping; afterwards, she and Dani sat down on two cots, side by side. Dani went into her backpack and took out the lunch she was preparing before the levees broke. She shared a sandwich, chips, a soda, bottled water and an apple with her mother. They had no idea this would be their last meal for the next four days due to the government’s slow response. JACKS: Jacks was frantic as she continued to call relatives, no one had heard from Annette and Dani. Her thoughts were interrupted by a ringing telephone. It was Dani, Jacks said, Dani, I was worried to death about you and Annette! I was about to charter a plane and come down there and look for you myself. Dani said, Jacks, it’s real bad, we lost everything and aid just got here today, Mom and I haven’t eaten in four days nor have we had a change of clothes, Jacks said, oh my God! What can I do? Dani continued, mom doesn’t know I’m calling you, she’s too proud, I wanted to call you when the hurricane first hit, she said no. I finally got a signal on my cell phone, Jacks I’m scared. Jacks said, I can have a plane rescue you in a few hours, Dani said, you know how mom is, she won’t get on the plane. Jacks said, is there a Western Union nearby, Dani said yeah, it’s located inside a corner store called Palmers across the street, let me give you the street
    • name. Jacks wrote down the street name and said, listen to me carefully, I’m going to wire $5,000 within the hour, do you have your identification, Dani said yes, Jacks said good; pick the money up in an hour. Dani said okay, thanks cousin Jacks, Jacks said, give me your cell number and stay in touch, call me if you need more money or a plane out of there and let me know when you settle in a apartment or a house. Dani said, will do; love you cousin Jacks. I love you to honey. When G-Mac came home, Jacks told him, I heard from Dani, they survived and are doing okay but I’m going to stay by the phone just in case. DANI: Dani picked up the money and stuffed it in her backpack. She decided not to tell her mother about the money, she would probably make her send it back. She arrived back at the shelter, her sleep was interrupted by a girl screaming; it was some type of disturbance nearby. Dani focused her eyes in the dark, she saw a man trying to rape an underage girl. She quickly got her pepper spray out of her backpack and went towards the altercation. She told the man to stop, he turned around and said, ‘fuck you bitch and mind your own business, after I’m done with her, your fine ass can have me next.’ Dani aimed her pepper spray in his direction and sprayed, he screamed out in pain as he rubbed his eyes, he shouted, ‘you fucking bitch, I’m going to whup your ass.’ Dani screamed, we need help over here; will somebody please come help us? A few men got out of their cots and came to the rescue; she explained the situation. They took the offender out back and gave him a beatdown, they told him not to return to the shelter. Dani thanked the men when they returned. Dani returned to her bed, her mother slept in a cot next to hers; she had slept through the incident. Dani went fast asleep clutching her backpack. The next day, a woman took photos of some of the people at the shelter to put on a website. Dani and Annette posed for a photo. THE TRENT’S: Simon Trent was reading up on Hurricane Katrina on the Internet, he wanted to make a donation. He clicked on a link and arrived at a site where you could make a donation and adopt a family. He quickly browsed through some of the photos; he stopped when he came to a photo of two Creoles, a woman and a teenage girl. The girl was gorgeous and naturally endowed. He read the caption on the photo; their names were Annette and Dani Duboce. Simon thought, these two will fit in perfectly with my new venture. He discussed his plan with Melissa, she told him to proceed.
    • Later that evening, Simon went back on the website and contacted the agency in regard to adoption proceedings. The agency got in touch with Annette and Dani. They told them that an extremely wealthy family wanted to adopt them. The family lived in an affluent Texas suburb. Annette was excited and Dani was reluctant. She told Annette, how can you be excited about strangers wanting to take us in when we could stay with Jacks, I don’t see any other family members offering to help. Annette shouted, when did you talk to Jacks, didn’t I tell you not to call her? A woman interrupted, Annette was given paperwork, Annette signed on the dotted line while Dani shook her head in the background. They arrived at Hobby airport; the Trent’s were waiting when they got off the plane, they looked like a perfect family as they introduced themselves. They were extremely nice, they helped them with their luggage and they went out to a waiting limousine. Annette was impressed; Dani was leery. Simon thought, damn, Dani looks better in person than she does on the website picture. In the limo, Annette recounted the devastation and destruction they experienced in the hurricane, the Trent’s listened sympathetically with the exception of the oldest son Adam. He was very distant and unfriendly whereas the younger boy Ryan told Dani; you sure are pretty! The limo pulled up to a magnificent mansion in a gated community. The chauffeur helped them with their luggage. A few neighbors stared at them and quickly turned away and two joggers looked at them suspiciously. Dani thought, this is just great; an adopted black family living in a Klan neighborhood, this should be fun. Melissa showed Dani to a spacious guest room while Simon took Annette to an upstairs room. After the unpacked, they went to the dining room for dinner. Dani wasn’t surprised when the Trent’s served a fried chicken dinner with watermelon for dessert. Annette grinned and thanked them for their hospitality. Dani was less than impressed. Dani returned to her room and called Jacks. She updated Jacks on the situation. Jacks was hurt that Annette hadn’t called her for help. Dani gave Jacks the Trent’s address and phone number, she thanked Jacks for the money and assured her she would pay her back. She also told Jacks, she felt a bit uncomfortable. Jacks asked why? Dani said, I don’t know, something doesn’t seem right, maybe it’s my police science training, I can’t put my finger on it. Dani heard someone coming down the hall, she told Jacks; I have to go,
    • I’ll call you again. Over the next few weeks, to show her appreciation for the Trent’s hospitality and kindness, Annette began cooking authentic Creole and Cajun meals. The Trent’s devoured her jambalaya, crab, sautéed shrimp and gumbo; they were impressed with her cooking. When Melissa Trent hosted dinner parties and fundraisers, she had Annette do the catering. Everyone loved her cooking. Before long, the Trent’s began to treat Annette like a maid; they ordered her around and belittled her in front of guests. Dani asked her mother, why are you letting them treat you like that? Annette responded, like what? We have to earn our keep and you’re overreacting. At least I’m contributing. Dani rolled her eyes and walked off. That evening, Dani realized that someone had stole the money that Jacks had sent from her backpack. Later that evening, Adam came in the house with bags and bags of new clothes. The following week, ‘Hurricane Rita’ was due to hit Houston. Dani thought, damn, are we being followed by death? This reminds me of that movie ‘Final Destination.’ Jacks called, Dani told her they were okay; and were making plans to evacuate. Although they lived outside of Houston, the Trent’s loaded everybody up in the SUV and went to Dallas. After Hurricane Rita subsided, Melissa drove everybody home. RAYMOND: After 48 hours, the police conducted a search for Angie? They found nothing and they had no leads. Due to their budget, the search was limited. They classified her as a ‘runaway,’ and stopped investigating. Miss Emma kept Raymond informed. Raymond caught a break the following day; his conviction was thrown out on a technicality.
    • Miss Emma and her nephew Richard were waiting outside the jail when he was released. When Richard pulled up to Raymond’s house. Raymond rushed out of the car. He went to Angie’s room looking for clues. He also called his niece, trying to trace Angie’s last steps; she was of no help and rushed him off the phone. After Raymond got off the phone, he sat down and put his head in his hands, he said, ‘this is my fault,’ if I would have minded my own business and not gotten in that bar fight, I would have been home with Angie instead of rotting in jail. Miss Emma said, it’s not your fault Raymond; you were protecting a woman in that bar, you’re a hero. Richard added, Raymond, you know I’m a computer tech for the security firm I work for, when we were in Angie’s room, I noticed her desktop, let me take her hard drive and see what I find, I work the graveyard shift tonight, on my lunch hour, I’ll see what clues if any, the hard drive holds. I’ll bring it back in the morning. Richard helped Raymond retrieve the hard drive before he left with Miss Emma. Later that evening, Miss Emma brought Raymond over a plate of food, he thanked her but he had no appetite. ANGIE: Angie awoke in a darkened room with a throbbing headache, her hands were tied behind her with rope and her ankles were bond together with rope. She adjusted her eyes to the darkness. She was in a basement, surrounded by expensive camera equipment. She tried to sit up on the small bed but she couldn’t. She was scared. Her body jerked as she began sobbing uncontrollably; her voice quivered as she said, I want my daddy! THE TRENT’S: The next night as Dani slept, she saw someone with a camcorder standing over her bed, or
    • was she dreaming? The next morning, Dani was taking a shower, out of the corner of her eye, through the shower door, she made out a figure staring at her, the steam on the shower door prevented her from seeing who it was. The person left, Dani hurriedly turned off the water, got a towel and wrapped it around her. Dani rushed to her room, got dressed and stormed in the kitchen. While Annette cooked breakfast for everyone, Dani demanded to know, okay, who was watching me take a shower and who the hell stole money out of my backpack! Melissa looked at her in disbelief and asked, I dare you make those type of accusations in my home? Dani said, you need to be addressing your husband or oldest son; one of them is a peeping tom. Simon said, take your allegations and get out of my house while Adam stared at her with pure hatred. Suddenly, Annette interrupted, please excuse my daughter, she probably imagined that someone was watching her, she doesn’t know what she’s saying. Let me talk to her. Dani was speechless as she stared at Annette. Annette led Dani to her room. What are you trying to do? These nice people let us in to their home, they have clothed us and fed us, you trying to ruin a good thing, are you crazy. You always did like attention, now you accusing someone of watching you and stealing from you, girl, get a grip! Dani screamed, mother, you really are pathetic, I no longer have any respect for you, you can continue to stay here, they treat you like a maid while you smile and ‘Uncle Tom’ for them but I’m packing my bags and leaving. They had no idea Simon was listening. Simon returned to Melissa, ‘we have to move quickly,’ Dani is preparing to leave. We need to get the kids out of the house, take them to your sister’s, they can stay there for the weekend, Melissa nodded.
    • RAYMOND: Richard returned the hard drive. He told Raymond, I found some interesting stuff. Apparently, Angie was in contact with an online agency that reunites kids with adoptive or biological parents. The last email was sent a few hours before she went missing, she had agreed to meet a representative at the bus station in Houston, they told her; they would take her to meet her mother and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Raymond and Richard took the information to the police, they said they would get around to investigating it; meanwhile, all of their manpower was being used to track down several convicts who had escaped the night before. Richard whispered to Raymond, forget this, I got a better idea. They returned to Raymond’s. Richard got on the computer, created a new email account and emailed the agency. Telling them, he was looking for his biological mother who put him up for adoption. They didn’t have to wait long for a reply. Richard gave them false information, he figured, since it was a scam, they wouldn’t bother checking to see that the person didn’t exist. He also reminded himself to type his email responses like a 13-year old. He was right, after two hours of communicating through email, the rep finally replied, your mother has been located; we will send you a ticket to come to the Houston bus terminal in few days. Richard responded, I have a paper route, I am so anxious to meet my mother, I can’t wait, I will purchase a ticket and be at the terminal tomorrow at noon. DANI: Between packing, Dani tried to call Jacks but her cell phone battery was dead. She decided to use the Trent’s phone. Jacks answered on the second ring. Dani told Jacks about her suspicions and that someone had stole the money she sent. Jacks said, I’m coming to get you and Annette. Dani told her, Annette wants to stay, Jacks said, I don’t care if I have to drag her out of that house; she’s coming with us, you’ve already given me the address. Just then, the phone went dead. Dani tried to call her back but their wasn’t a dial tone. Jacks tried to call the number on the caller ID but she couldn’t get through. Jacks then tried to call G-Mac but he was out of the country on assignment and she
    • couldn’t get through. She left a message, ‘honey, I’m going to Texas to get Dani and Annette, some strange things are going on with the adoptive family they’re staying with.’ I will leave their address and number on the kitchen counter, I should be back in a couple of days, my mother is coming to watch the kids, love you.’ THE TRENT’S: Dani had finished packing, she turned to her mother and said, if I have to hitchhike to get away from here I will. Just then, Simon and Melissa entered the room. Simon walked towards them with a needle, while Melissa restrained Annette; Simon overpowered Dani and injected her with the needle as Annette screamed in the background, he then injected Annette. After Annette lost consciousness, Simon turned to Melissa, we will transport them to the other house tomorrow, Melissa nodded. JACKS: A few hours later, Jacks landed in Houston. A limousine was waiting for her; she gave the driver the Trent’s address. Jacks arrived and rung the doorbell, Simon answered and asked; who are you? She replied, I’m a relative of Dani’s and Annette’s, I’ve come to take them home with me. Simon said; they left hours ago. Jack’s could tell he was lying and asked to come in. Simon stepped aside and let her in. She said, Mr. Trent, I received a call from Dani, she knew I was on my way, did they say where they were going? Before Simon could answer, Jacks heard something like a muffled scream coming from the basement, Simon rushed Jacks, she did a roundhouse kick and kicked him in the stomach; he went down. She was waiting for him to get up; suddenly, she was hit over the head from behind with a frying pan, she went down. Between deep breaths, Simon told Melissa, good work, when I catch my breath, we’ll transport her down to the basement with Dani and Annette but first, I’ll go get rid of the limousine driver.
    • The Trent’s dragged an unconscious Jacks down to the basement. Dani said, oh my god! What have you done, that’s my cousin Jacks; she’s a Federal Agent. Simon and Melissa looked at each other nervously, Melissa said, it’s a scare tactic; she’s lying. Simon agreed. He looked at Dani and said, time for your medicine, Dani said no and began to back up on the bed, Annette was going in and out of consciousness on the other side of the bed. Simon injected Dani first; he then injected Annette and Jacks. When they were leaving the room, Simon said, we are going to fetch a fortune for them. RAYMOND: Raymond and Richard arrived at the Houston bus terminal two hours early. They planned to do surveillance. The rep said she would be holding a sign that said ‘Richard.’ When she realized Richard didn’t show up, they planned to follow her, maybe she would lead them back to Angie. G-MAC: G-Mac read Jacks note. He had been trying to call her for the last few hours; he got no response, something was wrong. He made reservations; he was going to Texas. THE TRENT’S: The women woke up in another room, some type of basement, surrounded by camera equipment. Jacks had a slight concussion; she noticed a teenage girl huddled in the corner crying. Jacks asked Dani and Annette, are you two okay? They nodded yes; she asked the girl, honey, are you okay? The girl continued crying. Jacks said, I promise you; we will get out of here. The girl responded, my name is Angie, I was just trying to find my mother, they said they could find her; instead they abducted me and brought me here. After the Trent’s finished breakfast, Simon looked at his watch and told Melissa, you better get going, the victim should be arriving at the bus terminal shortly. Melissa said, you’re not coming? Simon said no, I have to put them on film, just bring him back here; I’ll drug him and take him down to the basement with the others. After Melissa left, Simon decided to go and check in on the victims.
    • Simon entered the room and said, how are my beauties today? You are probably wondering what’s going on? Let me explain, all of you will be sold at a sex auction today on the Internet black market. Buyers from all over the world will bid on you. You will be broadcast live via webcam. You will be sold off to the highest bidder and never be seen again. Annette, we will advertise you as a triple-threat, ‘sex slave, domestic and a great cook.’ Simon turned on the cameras. Ladies, look this way. Lights, camera, action! BALLIN 7: THE TRENT’S: Raymond and Richard watched from a distance as an elegantly dressed white woman (Melissa) held up a sign with Richard’s name on it. The woman appeared agitated and annoyed when no one approached her. When she realized all the passengers had gotten off the bus, she became even more frustrated. She stood standing for five more minutes, looking around; she then crumbled up the sign and threw it away in a nearby wastebasket. She stormed out of the bus terminal with Raymond and Richard in pursuit. They hailed a cab and had the driver follow her discreetly. G-MAC: Across town, at that precise moment, G-Mac arrived at the Trent’s house. He rung the doorbell, no answer, from outside, the house looked dark and empty. He took out his cell phone and called Lear. She answered on the second ring, he explained the situation and asked Lear to do a check on property records to see if the Trent’s owned a second home, Lear said, I’ll call back if I get a hit. Within five minutes, the phone rung, Lear gave him an address of an additional home on the outskirts of Houston. G-Mac jumped in his rental car, consulted a map, put the map back in the glove compartment and started up the engine.
    • THE TRENT’S: Raymond and Richard had the cabbie pull over and park when Melissa’s car turned in a driveway. After she entered the house. They paid the cabbie and got out. The first thing they noticed, the house was located in a very isolated area. G-MAC: As they walked towards the house, G-Mac pulled up and got out. G-Mac stared at the car in the driveway for a few seconds. Raymond and Richard pulled back when they saw him walk up the stairs. They thought, he might be involved with the Trent’s. G-Mac peeked through the windows. Just then, they saw G-Mac take out a gun and head towards the back of the house. Raymond thought, maybe he’s a cop. Raymond called out, hey! G-Mac turned around puzzled. Raymond gestured for him to come towards them. G-Mac approached them, still looking puzzled; he didn’t like civilians interfering with his work. He asked the men, what’s going on? Richard asked him if he was a cop? G-Mac asked, why? Raymond said, the house that you were looking in, I think the people who own it, have my daughter, Angie, she was abducted online, an Internet scam. Richard spoke up, I contacted them through the Internet, pretending like I was a kid looking for a parent, they said they would help me find my parent and they instructed me to meet them at the bus terminal, a white lady arrives holding a sign with my name on it, she thought I didn’t show up so we followed her here. G-Mac looked at both men long and hard before speaking. I think these bastards have my wife, she came down to retrieve her relatives who were displaced during Katrina and I haven’t heard from her since. I freelance in law enforcement but I need both of you to stay out of my way! Raymond spoke up, no way man, they got my daughter, I’m going in with you. Richard added, I’m going in to. G-Mac looked at Raymond and said, man, I can sympathize with you, I lost my daughter to a pervert on the Internet but you two will only get yourselves killed, I am trained for this, let me handle it! Raymond said, not a chance! He looked at Richard, come on. G-Mac said, hold up, okay, we can all go in together and enter the back of the house but let me take the lead. Both men nodded their heads. The men introduced themselves and shook hands, G-Mac went to his car and handed each man a loaded firearm before heading towards the back of the house. At the backdoor, they heard a woman scream. G-Mac hurriedly picked the lock; each
    • man entered quietly and went towards the back. G-Mac signaled Raymond and Richard into the kitchen, he pointed to a door that led to a basement. G-Mac slowly opened the door; they heard voices as each man crept silently down the stairs. When they reached the bottom of the stairs, G-Mac startled Simon and Melissa when he screamed, put your hands up! Just then, Angie screamed ‘Daddy! G-Mac was distracted and Simon grabbed Angie and used her as a shield. Richard was appalled at the set-up, all the women were stripped naked surrounded by camera equipment, including a webcam. Simon said, all of you put your guns down or I will break her neck, the men did as they were told. Simon continued, my wife and I are going to walk out of here with Angie, move out of our way! Simon looked back at Melissa and said, come on honey; she walked towards him and Angie. Just then, Jacks gathered all the strength she could, she stood up and ran into the back of Simon, freeing Angie from his grip. G-Mac and Raymond overpowered Simon and Richard detained Melissa. Before calling the police, the men found covers to cover up the women’s nakedness. When the police arrived, evidence was confiscated, statements were taken and the Trent’s were arrested and charged with kidnap, lewd acts on a child, child endangerment and pandering. G-MAC/JACKS: After relocating to Prince George County, Maryland-the richest enclave for African- Americans in this country. G-Mac and Jacks decided to take a special trip to celebrate their wedding anniversary. They had arrived in Dubai two days earlier. On the evening of their anniversary, they took a submarine ride from their hotel (Burj Al Arab) to the famous ‘underwater restaurant,’ ‘Al Mahara.’ They were dining on a seafood feast when Jacks two-way (untraceable) cell phone rung. They were asked to report to headquarters immediately. Jacks was also asked to contact Lear, Nikki and Phelps. They returned to their suite and packed. A helicopter met them on the private beach adjacent to the hotel and they were whisked away to the airport. DAYNA: Earlier in the evening, Dayna and her fiance Mario enjoyed a performance by the ‘Dance Theater Of Harlem,’ at Zellerback Hall on the U.C. Berkeley campus, the performance was magnificent. After the show, they walked to a rented Mercedes; parked in an underground garage on Telegraph Avenue. They decided to have dinner and take the
    • Ferry to San Francisco. The night was foggy with the horn blowers blaring in the distance. Dayna and Mario engaged in a intimate and lively discussion on a variety of topics. They took advantage of this time because they rarely saw each other due to schedule demands. The ferry traveled underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and they could make out Alcatraz in the distance. When they departed the ferry, they jumped on a cable car. The cable car dropped them off in front of “Gary Danko’s.” This establishment is one of the few five-star restaurants in the world. If you desire something other than the entrée’s listed on the menu, you would inform your waiter or waitress. They in turn, would inform the chef and you would be served the meal of your choice, made from scratch. Dayna and Mario were enjoying crab cakes and clam chowder soup in a sourdough bread bowl when Dayna’s priority cell phone rung; it was Jacks. LEAR: Lear had just finished working a complicated case; she often went to Sweden to ski; to clear her head. The night before, she stayed at the “Ice Hotel,” which was featured in the James Bond film, “Die Another Day.” The hotel was constructed each year by the world’s leading sculptures. The 15,000 reservations set aside for guests, sold out each year. Lear was skiing at high speed down a slippery slope, sporting a fashionable faux fur trimmed ski jacket and designer shades. The slope was cluttered with fresh powder but this didn’t bother Lear, she was an expert skier. Just then, her 2-way cell phone rang. Lear was informed that she would be picked up by a car and driver outside of the “Ice Hotel,” within the next two hours and be taken to the airport. She was needed back at headquarters, immediately. NIKKI: A day after attending the “America’s Cup” yacht racing event in Valencia, Spain. Nikki and Phelps were inching up a rock-climbing wall, Nikki’s blackberry went off; it was Jacks. Nikki read the message to Phelps. They climbed down the wall, got their stuff and rushed to the airport to catch a private jet to Los Angeles. JACKS: After everyone was seated in the conference room, Jacks used a laser pointer to identify the cast of characters at a boat party. This is Miquel Lopez, an international arms dealer. This is his sometime girlfriend, Lauryn Allen, she runs a successful drug-banking cartel. She launders money for literally
    • every drug cartel in the world. This is her brother, Cartier Allen, a drug lord who supplies the Hollywood elite. Brother and sister control over half of the drug market in California and they also sell potassium permanganate to drug barons. Lauryn is the kingpin and the brains behind the operation and she has their money hidden all over the world in numerous offshore banking accounts. Due to her financial wizardry, each sibling is worth in the neighborhood of $75 million dollars. Jacks added, damn, they’re so good looking, they went into the wrong field; both could have been successful models. Lauryn resembles actress Michael Michelle and Cartier looks like a young Philip Michael Thomas. Anyway, we were lucky to get images of them, they are underground, hardly ever photographed or seen in public. Jacks turned off the projector. She looked around the room at her husband G-Mac and co-workers, Lear, Dayna, Phelps and Nikki. She took a brief pause before continuing. We have been given orders to infiltrate their organization and to take them down, effective immediately! LAURYN: Lauryn Allen awoke early on a Saturday morning. She cooked a few slices of overseas gourmet bacon, priced at $120 per pound. While the bacon was frying, she boiled an egg and prepared herself a cup of ‘Ghiradelli’ ‘double chocolate’ hot chocolate with whip cream and chocolate sprinkles. She took her plate and her cup of hot chocolate into the living room where she sat down and watched the film “Cover,” on her home theater. She sipped her hot chocolate slowly as she watched the film. Afterwards, she went into her home office, surrounded by a pirranah’s in a wall-encased aquarium; a platinum Arowana fish (valued at $80,000) was housed in a separate aquarium. She logged into her computer and checked her Swiss bank account, ‘immediate annuity account’ and her virtual safety deposit box contents, to make sure everything was in order. She also checked activities at an “black market bank,” she was affiliated with that specialized in money laundering activities. Satisfied, she checked the encrypted files of outgoing ‘washed,’ currency from businesses she set up, a company that sold yachts and several upscale ‘Gentlemen clubs.’ She also laundered money through banks in Spain, Mexico, Italy and the United States. Her fee was a standard 5 percent for each seven-figure transaction. She had also set up dozens of sham accounts located in Mexico and the Cayman Islands, she then converted the money into legal bank drafts and checks that the cartel bosses could cash anywhere, no questions asked. This procedure erases the drug origin of the money. She also checked the balance sheet on an expensive boat she purchased, disguised as a
    • gambling casino. This boat laundered money through St. Maartens (known as a drug laundry haven) Portugal and Spain. Lauryn also smuggled gold and high quality counterfeit foreign currencies. In 2007, Lauryn laundered over $200 million dollars for virtually every drug syndicate in the world. She was considered a ‘cocaine banking kingpin’ among drug lords and crime bosses. Next, she answered an encrypted email from one of her overseas contacts, Santana, a former Black Ops soldier who was now a hired assassin for drug cartels, he was currently suspected of doing ‘wet work,’ in hot zones on four different continents. He inquired if Lauryn could refer him to a buyer interested in purchasing 2 severed hands (frozen) of two of his victims. The buyer could buy the hand to obtain fingerprints (to plant at crime scenes to throw off the cops). Lauryn graciously replied, no. Another email was from a contact who lived in a rural and isolated area in the Midwest, he asked Laruyn to contact him if she needed any cell calls traced in Northern America and overseas because he had the capability to trace any call regardless of professional status with his illegal satellite hookup and he couldn’t be traced because he could triangulate his location. Lauryn thanked him for the reminder. She turned off her computer and went into her home gym. She worked out on an exercise bike as she watched ‘The Food channel’ on her 103-inch flat panel plasma television (built into the wall). The screen width of the TV is comparable to the size of a double bed. After the workout, she put on two of her favorite old school artists, Howard Hewett and Stephanie Mills as she did stretches. She then sat down at her red oak coffee table and played a game of “Go,” with herself. ‘Go,’ is a board game favored by royalty and the elite. Described as a game for intellects, this game originated in China 4,000 years ago and it can take a lifetime to master. Later, Lauryn decided to go jogging. Lauryn was jogging while listening to her i-Pod. She was surprised when she saw another beautiful black woman jogging in her direction, not too many blacks lived in her gated community and the woman looked familiar. As the woman passed Lauryn, she nodded; Lauryn nodded back but discouraged conversation and continued jogging in the opposite direction. Lauryn had to be careful because of her illegal activities. She was the top money launderer (for drug cartels) in the world. CARTIER: Cartier Allen, Lauryn’s brother, a Hollywood drug lord was across town, laying up with one of his many girlfriends watching ‘Scarface.’ After the closing credits, Cartier decided to fly his girlfriend to Miami to eat and water ski. Afterwards, they went to South Beach
    • and later arrived on Star Island; Cartier’s favorite party spot. He was a regular on the ‘Star Island’ party circuit and usually arrived by boat. The hip-hop elite gave numerous parties on this exclusive island and Cartier attended every one of the parties. From Florida, they flew to Atlanta to attend a rare Prince concert. They flew back to Los Angeles the following day. The next evening, Cartier attended one of his sister’s upscale gentleman clubs (that she laundered money through) in Hollywood. He took his boys up to the private skyboxes (reserved for VIP’s) to view the action. Cartier passed out Cuban cigars and ordered up a seafood feast accompanied by several bottles of Cristal. After the show, they went into private rooms and received lap dances. Afterwards, they hooked up with several of the strippers. LAURYN: The following Saturday, Lauryn did the same exercise routine. Again, she saw the beautiful black lady jogging towards her, just then, she heard a car speeding behind her; the woman lunged and pushed her out of the way before the car plowed her down. Lauryn gathered her senses and thanked the woman, saying, you saved my life. People usually don’t drive like that in this community, the woman introduced herself as Dayna Silva. She told Lauryn, I caught a glimpse of the driver and passenger; they were teenagers. Lauryn interrupted, wait a minute, you’re that famous video girl, I thought I recognized you, my brother Cartier is a huge fan of yours; Dayna smiled and said thanks. Lauryn added, I really appreciate what you just did; do you live in this community? Dayna said yes, I made some really good investments, I just moved in a month ago. Lauryn said, I would like to invite you over for dinner tonight. She gave Dayna her address and told her to arrive at 7 p.m. DAYNA: Dayna returned home and called Jacks, ‘it worked, contact has been made; she invited me to dinner tonight. LAURYN: At 6:00 p.m., Lauryn departed the shower and dabbed on her favorite perfume, ‘Clive Christian No. 1, valued at $2,350.00 per ounce, she then put on a tight fitting Versace dress, afterwards, she applied ‘KissKiss Gold & Diamonds lipstick, priced at $62,000 per tube. She then walked to her closet, admiring her extensive shoe collection which included: Manolo Blahnik’s, Jimmy Choo’s, Valentino’s, Prada’s and Yves St. Laurent’s. She selected a pair of Blahnik’s. Paul Cortez arrived at Lauryn’s house an hour later. He was her boyfriend’s (Miquel Lopez’s) right hand man. They exchanged pleasantries and got down to business. Cortez said, we are going to need ‘fake’ diamond serial numbers for 100 ‘conflict’ diamonds as soon as possible, after we receive the numbers, we will make a wire transfer
    • of $2 million dollars into your overseas account. Lauryn nodded and replied, I will send the serial numbers via our underworld courier, Kole. Cortez smiled, without missing a beat, Lauryn asked, would you like to stay for dinner? Cortez replied, I would love to. Cortez was very attracted to Lauryn but he knew Miquel would kill him if he ever made a move on her. Dayna arrived an hour later. Lauryn introduced her to Cortez, Dayna thought he looked familiar, after fifteen minutes, she excused herself and went to the bathroom. She sent Lear a text message, asking her to call her on her cell in five minutes. When she returned, she joined Lauryn and Cortez in the living room. Just then, her cell phone rung, she answered but positioned the cell phone where she was able to take a discreet photo of Cortez and patch it through to Lear. At that precise moment, Cartier came through the door. Cortez whispered to Lauryn, now that we are all here, for safety precautions, I brought along a ‘white noise generator.’ He discreetly removed the electronic gadget from his coat pocket, when he thought no one was looking, he placed it in a secure position, near Lauryn. He told Lauryn, if anyone is listening in, this device will create static and mask our conversation. Dayna observed the exchange out of the corner of her eye. Cartier’s attention was focused on Dayna, he recognized her from hip-hop videos, he smiled as he headed in her direction, he introduced himself and said, my sister said she had a surprise dinner guest but I didn’t know it was you, I am a huge fan. He fawned over Dayna all evening. Lear was able to identify the photo through her database. Paul Cortez was a former Homeland Security Sea Marshal (for cruise ships) due to gambling debts ($5,000 slot machines) he went rogue to earn money. He was rumored to be working as a high-ranking soldier in the Lopez organization, which was notorious for international arms deals, wet work (assassination) and extortion. Dayna was seated on the couch when Cartier joined Lauryn and Cortez at the bar to refresh their drinks, she hurriedly took a cell phone photo of the device that Cortez had left on the table and patched it through to Lear along with a text message, ‘Cortez, just placed this gadget in Lauryn’s living room, what is it? Lauryn invited everyone into the kitchen where she had prepared chicken with a mushroom sauce. The mushrooms were so rare; they only grew in a certain region in Italy and were priced at $500 dollars per container. The meal was delicious, accompanied by Krug, clos du Mesni 1995 champagne, priced at $750.00 per bottle. Lear received the photo and text message that Dayna sent. She studied the photo closely and thought, clever; Cortez is masking conversation with a ‘white noise generator.’ Lauryn’s dinner party was winding down as everyone sung along to Al Green’s greatest hits and popped popcorn before watching the documentary ‘Girl 27.’ After the movie, Dayna retrieved her coat and was preparing to leave, Cartier insisted on
    • walking her home. Dayna had to admit; he was extremely good looking. As they walked, he asked her about the numerous hip-hop artists she had worked with. When they arrived at her doorstep, he was a perfect gentleman as he kissed her hand and bid her goodnight. Cartier returned, Lauryn told him, she was impressed that Dayna had a lack of curiosity and didn’t ask many questions about her lifestyle, it also helped that Dayna was beautiful like her, no cause for resentment and jealousy. Cortez interrupted her thoughts, be careful, what do you know about her besides that she was once a video girl? Lauryn told him, you worry too much, she seems okay and she doesn’t pry. Cartier added. ‘I think I’m in love,’ Cortez rolled his eyes and said, you two let your guard down with someone you just met, are you both that star struck over a video girl? I’m going to have her checked out. Despite Cortez’s advice, Lauryn invited Dayna to go shopping with her the following day. They hit Rodeo Drive and went to Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills. Afterwards, they went to see the “Sex In The City,” movie but Dayna was surprised when Lauryn said lets go, right in the middle of the film. When Dayna asked her, why are we leaving? Lauryn replied, ‘like caviar, you don’t have to finish the whole jar to know its good.” LEAR: Meanwhile, Lear arrived at a ‘black site’ for a ‘black project,’ and she had to ‘go dark’ for the next few days as she gathered classified intelligence on a very dangerous ‘nuclear trafficker.’ Payne Bishop was considered one of the most dangerous and elusive men (only one old photo existed of him) in the world. Currently, an international manhunt was underway and a $5 million dollar reward was offered for his capture. His vast network traded nuclear secrets and sold weapons of mass destruction and illicit technology, including high-speed centrifuges and osmium nuclear bomb triggers across numerous continents. Bishop grossed over $1 billion dollars annually from this operation. He had various overseas accounts that Lear had trouble tracing because they bounced through 20 different dummy corporations. He was known in intelligence circles as the ‘Death Merchant.’ Signals Intelligence had traced a signal from a satellite phone (he was known to use) to a European villa. Agents were dispatched and set up an extensive ‘overview,’ surveillance, surrounding the villa. They also received Intel that Bishop’s enforcer-Adolfo, a former private security soldier was traveling with him. They had to take cover with extreme caution because Adolfo went nowhere without his Chey Tac sniper rifle. This rifle is used by-the world’s top assassins and it comes with a ballistic computer and suppressor (silencer), priced at $17,000. This is the only gun in the world that shoots a 4-inch bullet. It’s so accurate;
    • targets can be eliminated from a half mile away. Adolfo was so dangerous, he once suspected Bishop’s right hand man (Byron) of talking to the authorities, he then lured him to an deserted area in his car. Adolfo observed the car pull up from a distance, he pushed a ‘kill switch,’ triggering the locks and trapping the man inside the car. A few minutes later, the car exploded, courtesy of a car bomb Adolfo had planted the night before. When they raided the villa, Bishop and Adolfo was nowhere to be found, they had escaped into thin air, Lear returned, disappointed, back to Los Angeles. DAYNA: Lear had scheduled a briefing with Dayna, Jacks, G-Mac and Phelps. They had lunch at a gourmet sandwich shop. Everyone ordered hot prime rib sandwiches with pepper jack cheese on a Ciabatta roll with onion and mayo, served with chips and a soda. During lunch, Lear informed the others that Nikki had been called away on personal family business. After lunch, Dayna briefed them. Paul Cortez and Cartier were at Lauryn’s dinner party the other night, she also told them that Cartier had a crush on her, which made it easier for her to infiltrate but Cortez acted reserved towards her the entire evening. She wouldn’t be surprised if he did a background check on her. Lear said, don’t worry; we’ve already dummied up a fake background on you. Lear said, I also have something for you; she went into a computer bag and pulled out something similar to a black desk pad. She put it on the table and said, at first glance, this looks like an ordinary black desk pad but if you shine an infrared light on it, it becomes a virtual keyboard, which operates as a computer keyboard. She pushed it towards Dayna, you will use this to discreetly transmit emergency messages involving this case, Dayna nodded. Lear added, if you need to talk to me discreetly about anything pertaining to this case, contact me on ‘dry channel,’ 28 from your regular cell phone. Then, Lear pushed another device towards Dayna. ‘This is a 2-way cell phone, these phones are commonly used in the intelligence community. Records can’t be kept and the company that provides the phone service can’t be traced and satellites can’t track these phones. We (myself, Jacks and G-Mac) will also be on the same frequency. Keep this phone on you at all times.’ Lear also informed her not to have sex with Cartier under any circumstances, he was not targeted to be erased; he was someone they wanted in custody. G-Mac spoke up, my CI’s (Confidential Informants) tell me that Cartier has expanded his network; he is now the top drug supplier for Compton and South Central as well as Los Angeles. And, don’t forget, he still has ‘Black Hollywood’ on lock-down. He’s moving- drugs like crazy and his empire is growing with no end in sight and his sister Lauryn is diversifying again, it’s rumored that she’s supplying crooked diamond merchants with
    • fake serial numbers for conflict diamonds. Jacks said, we really have to take them down, fast! Lear looked at Phelps and said, here are you papers to join a team in Switzerland, they need your skills, officially, you are now off the Allen case. We sure could use you here, but this case is a higher priority. You are expected in Geneva, Switzerland in 2 days. Lear slid an envelope towards him, in this package, you will find your contact information, a passport and a plane ticket. Phelps nodded. After lunch, the women decided to go to a gym and work off the calories and G-Mac and Phelps decided to go to a sports bar to catch a NBA playoff game. G-MAC: During the ride to the bar, Phelps told G-Mac, man, I’m thinking about proposing to Nikki, G-Mac said, no shit! Handle your business playa; she’s a good woman, congratulations. Phelps added, I can’t wait for her to get back. G-Mac said, man, she’ll be back before you know it. Phelps said, I hope she accepts my proposal because since her last boyfriend (Sherm) died, she may be hesitant. G-Mac said, don’t worry about it, man, she talks to Jacks about you, she loves you as much as you love her. Phelps smiled, G-Mac pulled up to the bar and told him, I’m going to wipe that smile off your face after I beat your ass in pool, come on playa, lets play a few games before the playoffs start! Later that evening, Phelps returned home and started packing. When G-Mac returned home, he went into his workshop to work on custom-made ammunition. Titanium nitrade coated ammo for .22 caliber; designed for use in silenced and suppressed weapons. He also developed .308 ammo; used for sniper weapons. Afterwards, he climbed the stairs and put on a Teddy Pendergrass CD, he turned the sound down low and joined Jacks in bed, he woke her up by kissing her neck and stroking her hair, before long, they were making love. NIKKI: Nikki had arrived in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan the day before. It broke her heart when her parents (Jim and Doris) informed her that her little sister Kathy was now involved with a big time drug dealer, named Norman Brew, he was abusing her and isolating her from her family, she was also on drugs. Her mother also informed her that Kathy brought Brew over for Sunday dinner, one of the few times she had seen her in months and Brew bossed her around, demanding she bring him a beer. He also refused to join in-saying grace before dinner and he ordered Kathy to braid his hair before she ate. The last straw was when he threatened to hit Kathy in the kitchen until Jim intervened and threw him out. Kathy became outraged at her father and followed Brew out the door. Tears were streaming down Doris’s face, Nikki embraced her and said, don’t worry Ma, it’s going to be alright.
    • Nikki called Kathy, a man answered and demanded to know who she was, she told him that she was Kathy’s older sister, he said, Kathy ain’t available and hung-up in her face. Nikki then called Ashley Perry, a fellow hitter, she told her, I have a family emergency and I need your assistance in Detroit. Ashley said, I’m there; I’ll catch the next red eye. That night, Nikki tossed and turned as she dreamed about how her Uncle Roger (a military man) who taught her how to shoot. He would line cans and bottles up, and they would have a shooting competition. When Nikki’s mother asked Roger, why are you teaching your niece to shoot? He would shrug and say, a woman has to learn how to protect herself. Uncle Roger also taught her hand-to-hand combat skills. This came in handy when Nikki tested for federal law enforcement jobs. She always aced the physical part of the test with flying colors. She underwent two years of training which also included assembling a sniper rifle blind folded. After Nikki picked up Ashley from the airport, Nikki took her to Moe’s Club & Café for lunch. When Moe saw Nikki, he came from around the counter and gave her a big hug. He said, girl, you looking good, it’s so good to see you. Nikki thanked him and introduced him to Ashley. They ordered Moe’s homemade beef chili with a side order of sweet buttered cornbread. Nikki said, lawd have mercy, this is good eating! Ashley said, I agree, I didn’t know chili could taste so good. Nikki told Ashley about the history of Detroit. Many news outlets say Detroit is the poorest city in this country but my childhood was anything but poor. My cousin used to work for Motown, he use to tell us stories about the Motown greats, and my father worked at one of the car plants. When they tried to pay, Moe told Nikki, your money ain’t good here but I request the presence of you and your friend at tonight’s show. The Dramatics are performing here tonight; I will reserve ringside seats. Nikki hugged Moe and said, thanks, you are still a sweetheart. Before they left, Nikki turned around and said, oh yeah, before I forget, Moe, what do you know about a guy named Brew? Moe got quiet, along with his staff; a look of fear was on everyone’s face. Moe motioned Nikki and Ashley into the back office. Everyone took a seat and Moe said, Nikki, baby, he is bad news and very dangerous, I hate your baby sister got hooked up with him. I’ve seen her with black eyes and she seems spaced out, like she’s on drugs or something. Ashley noticed Nikki getting angry and gripped her arm. Moe continued, him and his thugs tried to extort money from me, they must have forgot my nephew is a cop, he had a talk with them and they backed off. He runs drugs and hookers all over town, has numerous soldiers, word is, he plans to turn your sister out on the corner. Nikki could barely contain her anger; she got up and left with Ashley in tow. In the car, Ashley told Nikki, just relax; we’re going to take care of this.
    • That night, Nikki and Ashley arrived at Moe’s and ordered a bucket of crab legs with garlic bread, white wine, and salad. They sat ringside as the Dramatics put on an incredible show, with beautiful medleys and show-stopping dance moves. Ashley was really enjoying the show but Nikki couldn’t concentrate because she was worried about her little sister. They returned to Nikki’s parents house, Nikki slept in her old room and Ashley slept in Kathy’s old room. LAURYN: Lauryn invited Dayna over to watch game 2 of the NBA playoffs. To impress Dayna, Cartier decided to prepare lunch for them outdoors. Lauryn told Dayna, Cartier has plans to-cook a ‘Polo’ tailgate lunch. Instead of sausage, baked beans and grilled burgers. Cartier grilled, colossal king lobster legs; grilled swordfish and fried garlic home fries. After lunch, they spent the majority of the afternoon and evening churning homemade peach ice cream served with lemon pound cake. Later that evening, they attended the Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige concert. The following day, they went to Marina Del Rey and spent time lounging and sipping tropical drinks on a $250,000 ‘Donzi’ speedboat. When Cartier brushed his hand against Dayna’s hand, it was like a volt of electricity. The chemistry she felt was undeniable. The next day, they were chauffeured in Lauryn’s Maybach limousine to the Santa Anita racetrack to watch the ponies run. Before the race, they had lunch (charbroiled oysters on the half shell) in a private VIP suite usually reserved for celebrities and politicians. Lauryn and Dayna had the attention of every man in attendance and the waiters catered to them while Cartier sat back proudly. A week later, they met Miquel Lopez at a private airstrip, boarded a private jet and flew to the South of France to attend the Cannes Film Festival. They spent most of their time, partying, from yacht to yacht with an array of celebrities. One evening, after a yacht party, they all decided to go scuba diving on the French Riviera. Dayna was enjoying the good life! On the plane trip back, Cartier and Miquel were engrossed in a high stakes card game. Lauryn looked across the aisle at Dayna and noticed she was reading a ‘Panache newsletter.’ She approached her and said, oh my god! I’m also a big fan of that site, Dayna said, really? Lauryn replied, yes! I’m on there every chance I get and I love to lurk on the message board. Dayna said, me too! I love Gorgeous Sable, she’s so over the top and throws down the gossip. Both women started laughing, Lauryn added, now I can appreciate Miss Sable and Madison Rae but my favorite poster is Litigating. She has a great sense of humor and knows the law, if I ever get in trouble, I’m going to
    • have Miquel track her down in real life; to represent me. Dayna said, I know that’s right! And gave Lauryn a high five. Dayna added, I also like the old school crew: Blessedwoman and Sheknows: I love their interactions because they are so mature and have so much wisdom, I also enjoy Hidoll and Soul Train, they bring that old school heat! Lauryn said, don’t forget about the Mayor of PR and Trinity, they also have great input. Along with all of the other posters, too many to name. They really are responsible for making that board like no other message board on the internet. These insightful and colorful individuals keep you informed and entertained on a daily basis and keep you coming back for more. Dayna said, I agree, wholeheartedly! Before Lauryn returned to her seat, she told Dayna, I got next on that newsletter! BREW/NIKKI: Norman Brew and his crew, Jo-Jo and Skeet grew up together in the same neighborhood. They were considered misfits at school, because their mothers couldn’t afford to dress them in nice clothes and sneakers. They also shared another common trait; they had never met their fathers. They spent the majority of their time drinking 40’s and smoking blunts in a nearby alley, adjacent to their high school and shooting dice. Brew resented the kids who had fathers and materialistic objects. He was so hateful, while other boys participated in basketball drills, he would steal valuables from their gym lockers. He got so tired of being teased about his appearance, he took an after school job at a local burger joint so he could save for designer clothes. One afternoon, a drug dealer named King Kurtis entered the café with his boys. After he sat down, he hollered, ‘hey burger boy, come take my order.’ Everybody burst out laughing whileBrew cringed with embarrassment. Brew went over to take everyone’s order, Kurtis tried to humiliate him further by changing his order, over and over, he also asked Brew, can you understand English? After King Kurtis and his peeps left, they trashed their table by intentionally spilling sodas and food all over the table, King turned to Brew and said, clean it up! Brew made a promise; someday, he was going to get even. After a few pay checks, Brew started dressing better but his new appearance didn’t garner him respect from the other kids. Just before graduation, Brew, Jo-Jo and Skeet were all informed on the same day that they wouldn’t be graduating because they had missed too many classes. They could still participate in the ceremony but they would receive blank diplomas when they walked across the stage.
    • When the school informed their mothers, Brew’s mother didn’t seem upset; she was too busy trying to snag a man. Jo-Jo and Skeet’s mothers were too passed out on alcohol and drugs to care. One afternoon, they were all sitting on a stoop. King Kurtis drove up, across the street, in his brand new Mercedes. He exited the car with a gorgeous woman. Brew told Jo-Jo and Skeet, one day, I’m going to kill that asshole and we gonna take over his turf, mark my words! Jo-Jo said, man, I feel what you saying and I hear he’s a asshole but you got to be seriously dreaming if you think you can just go up to him and take him out! He’s the biggest baller in town and he’s always in the company of enforcers. Brew didn’t answer. A month later, they participated in the high school graduation ceremony but were too embarrassed to stick around and go to the parties. Brew said, I didn’t plan for my life to end up like this. Not having a high school diploma doesn’t get you good paying jobs but I have a plan. Let’s pool together what money we have and get strapped; then we can take down King Kurtis and his crew. Skeet said, man, you still harping on that shit, I thought you were joking, I’m with Jo-Jo on this, are you crazy? We would be asking for trouble, you know them fools will retaliate. And, me and JoJo were never informed that we were going to be dope boys. Did we miss your memo, Brew? Brew said, ya’ll Negro’s are too cowardly. Over the next few months, Brew saved enough to buy three guns. He also made connections with local drug suppliers. Over time he convinced Skeet and Jo-Jo to come aboard, with the promise of quick cash, endless bling and a stable of women. He planned to knock over King Kurtis while he was at his stash house, he planned to kill everyone on the premises and steal the money and drugs. One evening, he gave Skeet and Jo-Jo loaded guns and told them to hide them in a safe place and be ready to move when he called. A few days later he called. They drove Skeet’s mother’s broke-down, backfiring car to the stash house and set-up surveillance, after a few hours, they made their move. They stormed the place in black clothes and masks. A blazing gun battle took place and Jo-Jo got wounded in the leg. Brew left King Kurtis for last.
    • Brew stood over him and pulled up his mask, King registered a look of shock on his face. Brew said, look at me fool, look good and hard before I kill you! King shouted, ‘burger boy, your ass is mine, do you know who you fuckin with! All of you will be dead within the next 24 hours!’ Brew said, not if there isn’t any witnesses, he raised the gun and shot King Kurtis in the head. They loaded up the drugs and money, rushed to the car and sped off. The police didn’t investigate thoroughly, they were glad King Kurtis and his crew were dead. The murders remain unsolved. Over the next few months, Brew used his portion of the money to buy kilos of cocaine. Skeet and Jo-Jo spent their portions on whips and bling and they paid their mother’s rent . Over the next year, Brew, the outcast from high school and his motley crew of friends became the biggest drug crew in Detroit. They had the juice and everyone stepped aside when they walked down the street. They upgraded to Mercs, Beamers, Porsche’s and Corvettes. They also bought condo’s and went on gambling excursions and to championship boxing matches in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Brew diversified and launched an escort agency. He had hookers working all over town. He also increased his work force; he had 50 soldiers on the payroll. One day, Brew saw Kathy Campbell working in the mall, a girl he had a crush on in high school. Over the next few months, he charmed her and took her out to expensive dinners. Before long, she quit her job and moved in with him and lost her virginity. Shortly afterwards, the beatings and drug abuse started. Eventually, he had her-where he wanted her, completely dependent on him for drugs and day-to-day living. When she returned to her parent’s home to pack, they noticed, she had a black eye. When they questioned her about it, she said she walked into a doorknob. She loaded all of her clothes into expensive Louie Vuitton luggage, embraced her parents and went out to a waiting Navigator. Around this time, Skeet started acting on his hidden ‘homo-thug,’ impulses. He started patronizing a gay club in the seedy part of town. He loved the energy, the loud music and the shirtless sweaty men with tight bodies but he was still too scared to act on his impulses until he met Quentin. They locked eyes while Quentin was gyrating on the dance floor. Skeet loved the way he moved and he appeared masculine with a bandana tied around his forehead. He also had on a leather vest and his tight jeans revealed a big bulge. After the record ended, Quentin approached Skeet. That’s when Skeet noticed his
    • eyebrows were dyed blonde. He liked his individuality. They got to know each other over a few drinks. After the club closed they went to an all night fried chicken joint owned by Quentin’s gay uncle. Uncle Harry greeted Quentin warmly when he walked through the door with Skeet. He told them, he was going to serve them a bucket of fried wings. He looked at Skeet and said, ‘you ain’t tasted chicken until you feast on my homemade bird. I soak it in buttermilk and tobasco sauce an hour before frying it up.’ Over conversation, Quentin told him that Uncle Harry had taken him in when his family kicked him out for being gay. He said, if it wasn’t for my uncle, I would have been homeless and hungry on the streets. Skeet took a deep breath before he told Quentin that he had never been with a man before. Quentin teased him about being a virgin. They laughed, Skeet asked Quentin what he did for a living, he replied, I make mix tapes. What do you do Skeet? I hustle but I make a good living. Quentin didn’t pry. They continued talking about hip-hop and sports into the wee hours of the morning. After dinner, they returned to Quentin’s apartment. Skeet was relived that Quentin didn’t pressure him for sex; instead, they fell asleep in each other’s arms. The next morning, Quentin awoke and fried bacon and eggs along with raisin toast saturated in apple butter with peach preserves on the side. Skeet was impressed, not only was this man masculine and gorgeous, he could also cook. Later that evening they went to a Pistons game. Skeet turned off his cell. Later that night he lost his virginity. The next day Brew called a meeting with his top soldiers. In front of everybody he asked Skeet, why haven’t you been answering your phone? When I call, you answer! Skeet nodded his head. Brew added, you must have met a new girl? Skeet muttered, yeah, something like that. Later, Skeet arrived at Quentin’s. He retrieved Brew’s drugs (marked for distribution) out of a duffel bag in the trunk and went upstairs to Quentin’s apartment. They became so high; they couldn’t function sexually. Quentin eventually substituted with a sex toy. The next morning, Skeet went to cop drugs from a rival dealer to replace the ones he had stolen from Brew. He then went across town to distribute them. NIKKI & ASHLEY: Nikki awoke and took a shower. Later, she went into Kathy’s old room and awoke Ashley. After Ashley took a bath and got dressed, she joined Nikki in the kitchen. The women prepared homemade waffles, pork sausage with sage and scrambled eggs with cheese and diced onions. Nikki prepared plates for her parents and took a tray into their bedroom.
    • When she returned to the kitchen, she ate in silence. After breakfast, the women cleared the table and washed the dishes. Now it was time to get down to business! Just then, her parents came out of the bedroom with their plates. Ashley took their plates and Nikki gave them a envelope stuffed with hundred dollar bills and suggested they see the movie (Trade) she also encouraged them to go shopping and to have dinner at their favorite restaurant. Both parents nodded grabbed their coats, and left. BREW: Across town, Kathy was out cold, lying beside Brew, she had ingested so many drugs the night before; she was unconscious. Meanwhile, Brew was on the phone, taking care of business. Trying to get a line on Russian women headed to Detroit to perform in strip clubs and to become prostitutes. Brew wanted a piece of the action but he knew he would have a hard time infiltrating the Russian mob; he planned to use a Russian friend to act as a go-between. After he got off the phone, he took the remote and turned to HBO, his favorite show, ‘The Wire,’ was on. NIKKI & ASHLEY: Ashley had just checked her email, the email correspondence she was expecting, had arrived. She read it out loud to Nikki. One by one, she went down the page which listed several warehouses owned by Brew, as well as the names of companies that were affiliated with him (Brew was a silent partner in some of the real estate). The Intel also revealed, his top lieutenant Jo-Jo handled the majority of his business. While Brew kept a low profile, Jo-Jo made public appearances on Brew’s behalf. Nikki said, okay, Jo-Jo will be the man we target; he will lead us to Brew. She asked Ashley to use her contacts and get one blonde undercover agent flown in to Detroit to pose as prospective prostitute. Ashley replied; I’m on it. When she hung up the phone, she turned to Nikki; a agent by the name of Mimi will be here in two days. Nikki said, perfect, that will give us time to make contact with Jo-Jo. Meanwhile, Ashley sent a photo of her and Mimi to Brew’s email addresswith a note attached, ‘We are Mimi and Ashley, we have heard so much about you on the East Coast and would love to work for you, we will be in town in two days, if you would like to meet us, email us at the following address.’ Brew showed the photos to Jo-Jo, bragging, ‘shit, we so huge, we ain’t got to recruit bi**hes, they coming to us, you believe this shit, we got fine ass white girls seeking us out, we can make a fortune on these bi**hes,’ Jo-Jo eagerly nodded his head as he devoured the photos with his eyes. He had already decided, he was going to try both of them out before introducing them to Brew; he was going to have the ultimate 3-way. Brew interrupted his thoughts and said, Negro, hurry up and email them back before they change their minds! Within the next hour, Jo-Jo sent an email requesting a meet at one of Brew’s restaurants across town. After Jo-Jo sent the email, he wondered, where the hell was Skeet? He wouldn’t mind if
    • Skeet tagged alone for security purposes but then again, it was only so much women could do against him. He thought, Skeet had been keeping a low profile lately but rumors were circulating that Skeet was spotted leaving a gay club with a Negro who had dyed blonde eyebrows. Hell, if Jo-Jo ever encountered Skeet and that Negro, he would bust a cap in his ass just for having that shit on his eyebrows. Jo-Jo didn’t like homosexuals but Skeet was his homeboy; and Skeet never made a pass at him. He planned to keep it a secret that Skeet was a homo-thug but if Brew ever found out, he would kill him. Two days later, Nikki and Ashley picked up Mimi at the airport and briefed her on the way. DAYNA: Gradually, over time, Dayna was able to pick up more conversation regarding Lauryn and Cartier’s operation. She reported the Intel back to Lear. The case was coming along nicely until Dayna got too close to Cartier. Since the Santa Anita outing, Cartier called every day; she enjoyed his conversation. It took all of her willpower not to invite him over to spend the night. This case was becoming more complicated by the day. Cartier even invited her to be his date at the Superbowl. Lauryn’s ex-boyfriend Miquel Lopez and his crew had a skybox rented under the name of a respected businessman who owed them a favor. Lear instructed Dayna to accept the invitation. This would be the first time Dayna would set eyes on the elusive, Miquel Lopez. A Gulf Stream jet transported them to Florida where a limousine was waiting to transport them to the stadium. Once inside, they took a private elevator to the skybox. They entered a world of luxury and privilege. Waiters and Waitresses had trays of Dom Perignon and caviar. A buffet table had filet mignon, prawns, sushi and oysters. It was a feast. As soon as Lauryn walked through the door, Miquel grabbed her hand to introduce her to his business partners. Dayna was left with Cartier, who was the perfect gentleman. They took seats and watched the game as waitresses catered to their every need. Dayna didn’t see Lauryn and Miquel for the remainder of the day. By the second half, Cartier disregarded the game to focus his complete attention on her. She had to admit, he was mesmerizing. After the game, they got into a limo, headed to a party. It didn’t take long to notice that Miquel was in love with Lauryn. He couldn’t keep his eyes or hands off her. At the party, Miquel kept Lauryn on the dance floor all night while Cartier tried to engage in intimate conversation with Dayna. The next afternoon, they flew back to L.A., when they arrived, they got in a limo, Laruyn and Miquel had fallen asleep in each other’s arms on the ride home. When the limo pulled in front of Dayna’s house, Cartier asked if he could come in, she answered no! He looked
    • like a wounded puppy as she exited the car. He then asked her, Is there somebody else? When she didn’t answer, he continued, ‘Baby, if you let me spend the night, within a hour, my Nielsen Ratings will be higher than his.’ Dayna ignored his comment and went inside, alone. She was torn, she would have loved to spend the night with Cartier having wild passionate sex but she was HIV-positive and he wasn’t a target for elimination. Plus, she had a fiancé who she loved, or did she? Her feelings for Cartier were beginning to maker her re-examine her relationship with Mario. After Dayna closed the front door, she went into her bedroom, turned on her laptop and sent a brief to Lear, detailing the evening. She also confirmed, she saw Miquel Lopez but he was very careful and didn’t converse in her presence. After she sent the email, she went to sleep and had an erotic dream about Cartier. A few minutes later, she woke up in a cold sweat. Before she went back to sleep, she asked herself, ‘Am I getting too close?’ NIKKI & ASHLEY: Jo-Jo met Mimi and Ashley at the restaurant. He played the part of a big time baller-shot caller. After introductions were made. Jo-Jo told the waiter, give me three of the most expensive entrees on the menu and send over a expensive bottle of champagne. The girls cooed; they were impressed. Jo-Jo stuck out his chest and asked, how did you ladies hear about our crew?’ Mimi stroked his ego and said, your crew is well known and we want to work with the best. Jo-Jo smiled, took out a cigar, lit it and inhaled slowly. He chose his next words carefully, when can you lovely ladies start working? Mimi answered, right away. Jo-Jo grinned. After they finished eating, the trio left the restaurant. Jo-Jo was taking them to meet Brew. Ashley sat in front and Mimi in the back. Jo-Jo put on Lil Wayne, all three were rocking to the beat. When Jo-Jo turned up a side street, he suddenly stopped outside a fleabag hotel. He turned to Ashley and said, I thought I would try you ladies out sexually before I introduce you to Brew. It’s only right that I try out the merchandise first. Meanwhile, in the back seat, Mimi slipped her hand in her purse and retrieved a .38 snub nose revolver. She put the barrel on Jo-Jo’s neck, he said, what the fuck! She told him to shut up. A car came out of nowhere and blocked Jo-Jo’s car in. Nikki jumped out of the second car, went to the driver’s side and said, get out the car mothafucka! Jo-Jo got out and slammed the door, he said, if you b**ches thinking bout jacking me, ya’ll in a world of trouble, do you know who you fucking with? Nikki said, shut the fuck up! She got up in his face and said, I only need your sorry black ass for one thing, you gonna take me and my girls to Brew. Jo-Jo said, bitch please! Nikki looked back at Mimi, she raised a gun and shot Jo-Jo in the kneecap, he screamed out in pain and sunk to the ground, Nikki stood over him and said, ‘who the bitch now?’
    • Mimi screamed, stand the fuck up! Jo-Jo winced in pain as he struggled to stand up, Nikki shoved him in the car and they sped off. DAYNA: Dayna sat across from Lear. She listened as Lear told her; my superior’s want me to clear this case quickly because they have another classified assignment for me. I need you to get into Lauryn’s office and retrieve her hard drive. This will give us a wealth of information on her illegal business activities and this will give us the ammunition we need to bring a case against Lauryn and her brother. Dayna said, that is going to be impossible, she hardly leaves home and that room is secure, I saw an alarm on the door. Lear said, an operative will walk you through on how to disable an alarm via an earpiece. Dayna asked, why can’t the operative disable the alarm and retrieve the hard drive? Lear said, because he will be on loan to us. We are stretched thin on this case. Jacks and G- Mac just got called off this case to join Phelps in Switzerland. Dayna said, damn! What is so urgent about that case? Lear took a deep breath and said: They are chasing down an international intelligence broker (Nile Ross) who sells state secrets, intellectual property, schematics structures and access codes via digitally encrypted files that you need a decryption key to access. This man is also connected to numerous cells and he loves to taunt us with unnerving phone calls, we can never get a fix on the calls because he always routes them through 30 or more substations. He even has gold-plated business cards that he gives out to his underworld associates with a world atlas image on it, listing himself as a “international consultant.” The number on the card is untraceable and bounces from country to country. And we have been informed by a informant that Ross has a Plan B in case we close in. Our informer says he’s going to exaggerate information about a domestic terrorist cell since terrorism in the government’s top priority and that branch of government has precedence over us. Ross will try and exchange the information for immunity and disappear into ‘Witness Protection.’ Hopefully, it will be cracks in his story and we can take him down. So you can see why this case is so important and frustrating. His last confirmed sighting was in Italy. He was seen driving a McLaren F-1, a million dollar ‘one-seater’ sports car. Hopefully G-Mac, Phelps and Jacks can close this case quickly and rejoin us. Lear paused and looked at Dayna, is everything okay? Dayna said, yes, I’m just a little under the weather. Dayna returned home and logged onto Panache After reading a few espionage stories, she was able to calm down and relax. At the precise moment she was preparing to log off, she received a pop-up informing her that she was invited to the “Sky Villa Suite,” an offshoot of the Panache Report. Background:
    • Sky Villa Suite is a covert site that can only be accessed by invited members who receive encrypted emails containing the url address (a sequence of numbers that change with each new announcement) and a secret password. The site is not open to the public. The guest list includes: Celebrities, sports figures, politicians, entertainment industry personnel, elite military, law enforcement and members of the intelligence community; all sworn to secrecy regarding the contents of the site via a secrecy/confidential online agreement. Sky Villa contains mind-blowing celebrity news, sports news, espionage news, political news, world news and short stories never reported anywhere else. Many invited guests have wondered? Is this news obtained by satellite? One evening, sky villa uploaded a live video feed of a celebrity downlow party, one of the guests (a source) was wired and walking around discreetly filming the action which was uploaded to the site in real time, all of the famous party guests were identifiable. After you receive the invite, you have 24-hours to read and view the intel before the site disintegrates. Dayna also received the “Sky Villa,” newsletter which arrived enclosed in a “Top Secret” folder enclosed in a large envelope sealed with a gold seal. A few VIP members received the sky villa newsletter via courier. Lear, Jacks, G-Mac, Nikki & Phelps were all members of this secretive site. NIKKI: Jo-Jo directed them to a loft in the warehouse district. Mimi parked a block away. Nikki and Ashley assembled their guns in the back, after they finished, Nikki told Mimi to watch Jo-Jo. Jo-Jo shook his head and laughed, he looked at Nikki and said, you shorties are crazy, Brew’s soldier’s will cap both of your asses, Nikki hit him across the face with her 9mm, breaking his nose, he screamed out in pain as he tried to stop the flow of blood by frantically wiping his nose on the sleeve of his shirt. Nikki and Ashley got out of the car; they both messed up their hair and wiped off their makeup. They wanted to appear disheveled. When they got close to the loft, a young black man with a sports jersey appeared out of nowhere and stopped them. He asked them where were they going. Nikki said, we must be lost, we looking to score. He looked them up and down and said, hey, maybe I can help you with that; I got some rock on me. Ashley appeared ready and eager. He smiled and added, if ya’ll take care of this, pointing to his crotch, I’ll let ya’ll have the rock. Nikki eagerly nodded her head. He started unzipping his pants with his left hand. Ashley discreetly pulled out her gun from her back waistband and shot him in the head. They got closer and did a recon surveillance of the area. They spotted three additional soldiers near the gate area. Ashley put in her earpiece and told Mimi to neutralize Jo-Jo. Ashley also asked her to assemble the sniper rifle and to take cover on a rooftop, across from the loft. Mimi knocked Jo-Jo out cold and stuffed him in the trunk. She made her
    • way to the rooftop and took out a Blaser R-93 sniper rifle (with a suppressor) which featured interchangeable barrels in 17 different calibers. If Mimi wounded 17 people, ballistics would indicate that 17 victims were shot by 17 different guns. When she was in position, she told Ashley, ‘let’s get this party started!’ Within seconds, one man went down, the others pulled out their weapons and looked around nervously and then a second man went down. The third man screamed out, ‘we under attack,’ and then he fell to the ground with blood gushing from a head wound. Nikki looked at Ashley and said, let’s hurry. They rushed through the gate and bolted up the stairs. When they arrived at the front door, Nikki put her head close to the door; she didn’t hear any movement inside. She signaled for Ashley to pick the lock. Within minutes, they were in. They saw a stairwell. Both women took off their high- heeled shoes and crept up the stairwell in their stocking feet. They heard a TV in the distance as they silently walked up the stairs. They got to an open bedroom door and cautiously peered inside. They saw Brew and Kathy sleeping peacefully as the TV blared in the background. Nikki signaled for Ashley to go on Kathy’s side of the bed as she retrieved her gun from her front waistband. She whispered, she’s out of it, try and carry her out of here, if you need my help, signal me. Ashley tiptoed to Kathy’s side of the bed; she got her half way out the bed when Brew woke up. He looked around sleepishly and said, what the fuck is going on here; who the fuck are you b**ches? He retrieved his gun from under his pillow and aimed it at Nikki. Nikki stepped forward, pointing her gun at him. Nikki said, Ashley, take Kathy out of here, I’m going to deal with this motherfucka alone! Brew shouted, fuck you, he looked at Ashley and said, put her back in this bed or I’ll kill you! Just then, Nikki shot the gun out of his hand, it fell to the floor, out of sight; Brew was so shocked he didn’t notice his hand bleeding. Nikki told Ashley, tell Mimi and tell her to pull the car around front, hurry up, take Kathy and go! Ashley gave the instructions to Mimi and dragged an unconscious Kathy out of the bedroom, down the stairs and out the front door. Nikki stared at Brew long and hard; he stared back without blinking. She said, before I kill you, let me introduce myself, I am Nikki Campbell, Kathy’s older sister. He said, so fucking what! That don’t make us family, I’m still going to have your assed killed! You got balls coming into my motherfuckin crib and trying to stronghold me, do you know who the fuck I am? I run this fuckin city! Brew called out for his boys, Brick, Tony, where ya’ll at?
    • Nikki said; oh, I forgot to tell you, we killed them all. Brew muttered, what? He was stunned. Nikki continued. I am a government agent and you could say, ‘I have a license to kill.’ She walked slowly towards him, adding, ‘consider yourself-a dead man.’ Brew backed up on the bed with a frightened look on his face, at the last minute he dived on the side of the bed looking for the gun. Nikki crept up behind him, his back was to her as he frantically searched under the bed for the gun, he found it and turned around to face Nikki, she had her gun already raised and shot him in the stomach, he winced in pain as blood poured out of his abdomen, he dropped his gun and used his hand to cover his stomach to try and stop the flow of blood. Nikki shouted, ‘asshole, this is for my baby sister, nobody fucks with my family!’ Brew looked startled as she raised the gun again and proceeded to empty the clip into his chest. He died covered in blood. Nikki went downstairs and slowly put on her shoes. She returned to the car where Ashley and Mimi were waiting. Kathy was asleep in the back and Jo-Jo was still in the trunk. They went to the outskirts of town. Mimi popped the trunk and untied Jo-Jo. He had regained consciousness but he was nursing his kneecap, he also had a massive headache and his ankles hurt. He got out of the trunk limping badly. Ashley threw him a cloth and told him to tie it tightly around his knee to stop the flow of blood. While he was doing that, Nikki told him, your boy Brew is dead, Jo-Jo looked up, startled. Nikki replied; I killed him. Jo-Jo limped towards her but stopped in his tracks when Ashley pointed her gun at him. Nikki added, we are with the government so don’t try any type of retaliation or we’ll kill you to. Jo-Jo slowly nodded his head, he was just glad these dangerous women had left him alive. He thought, what type of shit had Brew gotten himself into to have the government take him out! After the car left, Jo-Jo called Skeet, gave him directions and asked him to pick him up. He also mentioned that Brew was dead. Skeet arrived with Quentin. Skeet had to get out of the car and help Jo-Jo walk over to the passenger side of the car. Jo-Jo gave Quentin a look of intense hatred. He asked Skeet, why you hanging out with faggot motherfuckas? Quentin spoke up; hey, I resent that. Jo-Jo said, shut your ass up and get in the back seat! Skeet said, you don’t have to be talking to him like that, Jo-Jo replied, you taking up for this motherfucka over me, we grew up together, we homies. What the fuck is wrong with you? Skeet took a deep breath and said, Jo-Jo, I brought Quentin along so that I could introduce
    • him to you, since you are my best friend, I was hoping you would understand. Jo-Jo said, man, I heard rumors that you were spotted leaving a gay club with a queen who had blonde eyebrows, swishing his ass all over the sidewalk, hell naw, this is something I will never understand, I had no clue. How in the hell your become so weak, man? And your boy look like a clown you met at the Ronald McDonald house, he look like a cross between Moms Mabley and Grandpa Munster. Quentin screamed, fuck you! And I’m not a queen and I don’t swish my ass, so stop lying. Skeet interrupted, but this is who I am, Jo-Jo! I need you to accept this! Quentin urged him on, ‘you tell him baby!’ Jo-Jo glared at Quentin and told Skeet, tell your busted wife to shout up! And you need to stop acting like a drama queen. I also need you to take me to Big Ed’s so he can take this bullet out. Skeet screamed, we ain’t through talking about this! Jo-Jo said, aiight, we will talk about this shit later but there is something you need to know, you ain’t gonna believe this shit, Skeet asked, what shit? Three girls killed Brew; Skeet said, are you serious? Jo-Jo said, yeah, my thoughts exactly, they weren’t even associated with the game, said they were with the government but I don’t know, somebody must have taken out a contract on Brew’s ass and brought in some out of town hitters. Skeet added, if the government is watching us, it’s time to roll out. Jo-Jo added, hell, I might take over where Brew left off and become the new kingpin and since you into this gay shit, I been thinking, maybe we should find a way to make money off your sick shit, maybe you can start running male hustlers and we can open up a party promotions wing that caters to downlow men, they can pay big money to come together and do their perverted shit, the ones got AIDS and use the steroids with their meds, we can pay them for their roids and resell them to bodybuilders. We can also open up a underground ‘downlow’ brothel and gay gentlemen clubs featuring male strippers, call boys, and go-go boys, we might as well put your sickness to use. Skeet screamed, I don’t appreciate you calling my lifestyle ‘a sickness and sick perverted shit!’ Jo-Jo said, I didn’t mean no harm, man, this is a lot to ingest, you too sensitive over this shit, give a brotha time, it’s all good! Quentin perked up in the back and asked, sounds like ya’ll into some illegal shit! I don’t know if I’m down with that! They ignored him and kept talking. Jo-Jo said, Skeet, you should have seen them shorties, I don’t know what they feeding chicks nowadays but those girls were no joke. Skeet asked, did they do that to your knee and your nose? Jo-Jo said, yes! Quentin roared with laughter and said, it figures, three girls fucked your fake gangsta homophobitch ass up. Ha, ha, ha. You ain’t shit ! Jo-Jo turned around angrily to face Quentin, faggot didn’t I tell you to shut the hell up!
    • Jo-Jo pulled out his gun and said, maybe this will do the trick! Quentin had a look of fear on his face as Jo-Jo pulled the trigger twice, killing him. Skeet started screaming, oh my god! What have you done? Jo-Jo said, stop screaming like a bi**h, I did you a favor. Skeet was so overcome with grief, he crawled in the back seat and cuddled Quentin’s head in his lap. Jo-Jo said, ain’t this some shit, a fucking faggot love story, like a Harlequin romance novel, man what the fuck happened to you? Who the fuck turned you out? You ain’t never been in prison. This Negro deserved to die, any Negro that has blonde eyebrows is asking for death. In a year, his ass would have been saving for a sex change and you would have been sexing a chick who used to have a dick. Shit, you ought to be thanking me for taking this scum out of your life and for trying to get you back on the right track. With a look of fury in his eyes, Skeet took out his gun, turned around and shot Jo-Jo, Jo- Jo clutched his stomach before he went down but he was able to return fire, killing Skeet. All three men died at the scene. NIKKI: Nikki, Ashley and Mimi went to the hospital. A doctor examined Kathy and said she was unconscious due to the drugs she had taken but she would be fine when she regained consciousness. Nikki called her parents and they met her at the hospital. After Kathy regained consciousness, Nikki took Ashley and Mimi to the airport. She thanked them and hugged them before they boarded the plane. Afterwards, Nikki got in her car; she planned to return to the hospital to be with her family. Just then her cell phone rung, it was Moe. Hey baby, why don’t you and your friend come back by the café, Alexander O’Neal is performing tonight and the entire neighborhood is celebrating. Nikki asked, why? Moe grinned, because someone killed Brew but you already know that, don’t you baby? They both chuckled before they hung up. CARTIER: Cartier had just used his car alarm to unlock his Ferrari when a car came out of nowhere and hit him, knocking him to the ground unconscious. Lauryn was called; she rushed out of the house enroute to the hospital. Lear radioed Dayna,; time to move, before I forget, I was able to get G-Mac and Jacks. G- Mac is already at the house posing as a telephone repairman-he will pick the back lock and disable the alarm; that will be your point of entry. Dayna asked, why can’t G-Mac retrieve the hard drive? Lear said, because you know your way around the house and time is crucial. Dayna arrived at the back door, she let herself in, she immediately got nervous because she remembered a lock on Lauryn’s office door, intel she forgot to share with Lear.
    • She was surprised to see the door unlocked, Lauryn must have rushed out of the house in a hurry. She went to the computer to get the hard drive, suddenly, in her earpiece, she heard Lear say “Abort.” She quickly put the hard drive back into the computer when she turned around to leave; Lauryn was standing there with a bandaged up Cartier. Lauryn screamed, what the fuck are you doing in my house, in my office? Who the hell are you? LEAR: G-Mac, Lear and Jacks took position outside of the house. DAYNA: Dayna took a deep breath and said, I am a federal agent investigating you and Cartier for drug trafficking and money laundering. Both siblings were stunned. Cartier screamed, so you were playing me all along? I wasn’t nothing but a game to you? Dayna was silent, he shouted, answer me goddamit! He then pulled out a gun and pointed it at her. Lauryn was pacing the floor, hurt and muttering, damn, we can’t trust anyone and to think, I thought she was my friend. Cartier turned to her, sis, what are we going to do? Just then, Lauryn saw someone creeping up on the house. She said, I don’t know but the house is surrounded by Federal Agents. Just then, she took out her cell phone and called Miguel, she explained the situation and he agreed to dispatch two local enforcers, Cortez and Dior. G-MAC: G-Mac gained entry through the back door, he creeped slowly towards the office with his gun out, Jacks and Lear shadowed him. When he peered around the corner, he saw Cartier holding a gun to Dayna’s head. He turned around facing Lear and Jacks, he held three fingers up. They inched slowly towards him. He turned back around and shouted, put your weapon down now and let her go! Jacks and Lear stood beside him. All three were pointing guns in Cartier’s direction. Cartier looked up and shouted, hell naw! Put your guns down or she dies. G-Mac laid his gun gently on the floor, Jacks and Lear followed suit. Cartier screamed, Dayna is going to be our ticket out of here, so step the fuck back! They moved back. Just then a car door slammed outside. Within minutes, two men entered the backdoor in black suits. Cortez and Dior had their guns drawn and pointed at G-Mac, Lear and Dayna. Cortez said, my mission is to extract Lauryn and Cartier out of here safely. I don’t plan on killing any Federal agents. He turned to Lauryn, unplug all of your computers and
    • anything else of value and take them out to the car. Lauryn did as she was told and took everything out to the car. When Lauryn was finished, she returned to the room and started whispering to Cartier, Dior and Cortez. They decided to take Dayna along for insurance. They started inching backwards towards the door, Cartier, Cortez and Dior still had their guns pointed at G- Mar, Lear and Jacks. Before they made it out the door, suddenly, G-Mac pulled out a gun from the small of his back and said, stop right there! Cortez turned around and fired, hitting G-Mac, he went down. Jacks screamed no! She returned fire, killing Cortez, Dayna was in Dior’s sight of vision, he pointed the gun at her, at the last second, Cartier stepped in front, taking the bullet for her. Lauryn screamed and ran to her brother while Jacks ran to G-Mac. G-Mac was barely breathing as Jacks and Lear tried to do CPR, Jacks screamed, somebody call an ambulance, now! Lear retrieved her cell phone. Lauryn pulled Cartier up and examined the wound; luckily, it was a flesh wound. They were preparing to leave, Dayna had the opportunity to arrest them, she did nothing as they walked past her, Cartier mouthed ‘I love you.’ She said, ‘I know, you just proved it, get out of here! Everyone was so preoccupied with G-Mac, they were able to slip by undetected. LAURYN & CARTIER: Lauryn and Cartier ran to the Ferrari. They jumped in, while Cartier drove, she frantically dialed Miquel Lopez. She informed him that his two men were killed in a shoot-out. The information took him by surprise, he paused before giving Lauryn the address to a chop shop. Miquel added, ‘You need to ditch the car and have my guy Omar supply you with another car.’ Let me talk to Cartier. Lauryn handed him the phone. Miquel proceeded to give him directions to the chop shop and an abandoned shipyard. DAYNA: G-Mac was rushed to the hospital in grave condition. Jacks was frantic with worry as she prayed over him. Meanwhile, Lear and Dayna were in the waiting room. Lear kept asking Dayna, what the hell happened? How did they get past you. Dayna replied, I was never trained in hand- to-hand combat, I wasn’t armed and he had a gun. Lear screamed, “I did not train you to get too close, it that what happened? Did you compromise this investigation and go native? Answer me goddamit! Dayna lied and said no! Lear replied, it doesn’t really matter because we have every law enforcement agency on red alert. They will never get out of this city. A red Ferrari stands out like a sore thumb. Lear excused herself to go place a call to her brother, William.
    • CARTIER: While Lauryn was in the bathroom of the chop shop. Cartier hurriedly took out a spoof card and his cell phone. Dayna’s phone rung, she didn’t recognize the number on her caller I.D. but when she answered, she recognized the voice, it was Cartier. He told her, I’m using a “spoof card,” which gives me the ability to display any number on a caller I.D. Spoof card calls are also untraceable and I can change my voice from male to female. He also told Dayna he was safe and he would be calling her in a few days and he meant what he said when he told her he loved her, he hung-up before she could respond. Just hearing his voice made her heart accelerate. A few minutes later, Cartier and Lauryn headed towards the shipyard in a broke-down Pinto. LEAR: Lear punched in William’s phone number, he answered on the second ring, Lear said, hi William, how are you and Doris doing? William said, Lear, is that you? It sure is good to hear from you on Good Friday. And your niece Annie sure does appreciate all the gifts and money you send her each month. You have spoiled that child rotten. She brags about her Auntie Lear to everybody. Lear smiled. William continued, I was right in the middle of preparing my Easter sermon for Sunday. Hopefully you will join the family for Easter dinner. Lear replied, that would be nice, look, I don’t want to keep you, I just have one question, How is Annie doing and is she still going through that medical mystery that afflicts her each Easter? Have the doctors been able to figure out what the ailment is? William sighed and replied, no, the doctors still don’t have a clue, the bruising and bleeding has already started. Before William could say another word Lear hung up the phone. William said, Lear are you still there? He figured they got disconnected and hung up. Lear rushed to the waiting room and got Dayna, they checked in on G-Mac and Jacks. He was barely hanging on. Lear whispered to Jacks, don’t worry, I’m going to fix this, he’s going to be fine. Dayna and I have to leave right now, I think I found a cure for G- Mac. Between tears, Jacks said, ‘oh God, I hope so.’ The two women embraced before Lear and Dayna rushed out the hospital. Down the hall, an ongoing altercation was going on. The redneck sons (Mark and Michael) of Paul Cummings asked the hospital not to allow African-American employees in their daddy’s room. The hospital denied their request and both boys glared at the African-Americans who entered the room. The doctor told the boys, your father’s condition (Parkinsons) is worsening. Mark
    • screamed, I can believe that, look at how many darkies you let in this room, they the cause of my daddy not doing better! Michael agreed. They angrily gathered up the old man and left in a pickup truck. MARK/MICHAEL (EARLIER IN THE DAY) Paul Cummings and his two sons attended a white pride rally earlier in the day. From the time they were little boys, Paul Cummings told them that Hitler was the greatest man to ever walk the earth. ‘If you grow up to be half the man he was, you will succeed in life.’ Old man Cummings was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease last year. It started off with a slight numbness of the shoulder and spread. Regardless, it was no way in hell he was going to miss this rally. After his diagnosis last year, his numb brain sons abducted a Jewish girl who looked pregnant. They planned to replace their father’s damaged Parkinson cells with the new cells from her umbilical cord, their Aryan brotherhood sect had a stem cell hookup with a rogue doctor overseas. The plan went haywire when the boys took her to an local Brotherhood doctor who had lost his medical license a few years earlier for letting African-American patients die intentionally. After he examined the girl, he informed the boys she wasn’t pregnant, ‘she has several fibroid cysts protruding from her abdominal area.’ The boys were so outraged, when they returned home, they took turns raping and torturing her before they buried her alive. At the rally, the heat was getting to the old man, he started sweating and had a shortness of breath and started complaining of chest pains. The boys rushed him to the hospital. LEAR: Across town, Lear and Dayna pulled into William’s driveway. William answered the door as Lear and Dayna rushed in the house. Lear told him, ‘William, if you don’t mind, I would like to have Annie spend the night with me, I have a surprise for her that really can’t wait, I will have her back in the morning.’ William said Lear, it’s so late and that child is sleep, come back in the morning. Lear insisted and William and Doris agreed after Lear promised to have her back first thing in the morning. Lear went into Annie’s bedroom. She turned on the light and slowly walked towards the bed. She looked down and saw blood seeping from the palms of Annie’s hands and the top of her feet. The sight was unnerving, she took a deep breath, walked towards the child and bundled her up in her arms. ANNIE: Ten years ago, a teenaged couple, Al Ramson and Karyn Harris couldn’t handle a newborn baby. Karyn got pregnant by accident. She lived with her aunt because her parents had died a year earlier in a train crash. Her aunt was disappointed in her pregnancy and kicked her out. Karyn moved into Al’s family’s basement and had a baby girl (Annie Mae) six months
    • later. She named the baby Annie Mae because it was her favorite singer’s (Tina Turner) real name. A few months later, she was notified that her aunt had died of lung cancer. Life was cramped and the young couple couldn’t get any sleep because the baby cried all night. To make matters worse, Al’s parents never bonded with the child; their only grandchild. They also accused Karyn of trying to tie their son down. The stress took it’s toll and the couple argued constantly. Finally, Al suggested they give the baby girl up for adoption and get on with their lives. At first, Karyn strongly disagreed but over time, Al wore her down and even threatened to leave her if she didn’t consider his suggestion. She didn’t think she could go on without Al, he was the love of her life and they had been together since junior high school. One evening, on Annie’s first birthday, the Saturday before Easter, they woke up to find the baby covered in blood. Al convinced Karyn that the baby was cursed and they needed to give her up as soon as possible. Annie ignored him and rushed the baby to the hospital, a doctor washed and sterilized the wounds and bandaged her up but he couldn’t find anything wrong with the child. The couple was familiar with the safe haven law, where you could drop a baby off at a church, hospital or fire department, no questions asked. One evening, during a loud argument, Al threatened to leave, Karyn finally caved in to his demands against her better judgement. She dressed the baby warmly. Al drove to a church, Karyn got out, hugged the baby tight and left her on the steps of a Baptist church with a note attached, ‘Her name is Annie Mae and she was born on December 24th, she is six months old.’ As they drove away, Karyn was hysterical and crying uncontrollably, she wanted her baby back. She screamed, I don’t care if you leave me! I will raise our child on my own, turn this car around now, I want my child back! God forgive me! What have I done? Al said, fuck it! I will go back but I want both of you out of my parents home by tonight. Al made a wide U-turn, unintentionally crossing the double line into oncoming traffic, out of nowhere, a semi truck appeared, hitting them head-on. They died instantly. There was an on-site investigation, the crash was deemed an accident and closed as fast as it was opened. Oddly, when Al’s parents arrived at the scene, shortly after the accident, they didn’t inquire about the absence of Annie in the wreckage, they assumed her body was burned so bad-she was overlooked and unaccounted for by investigators and neither of them wanted the responsibility of raising a newborn so they never contacted the authorities about Annie and over the years, she faded from memory. ANNIE A few hours later, Rev. William Moss arrived to find a newborn baby girl wrapped in blankets on the steps of his church. He paused to read the note attached to her and he picked her up and took her to the hospital. After the doctors examined the baby, he took
    • her home to his wife Doris. They came to the conclusion that the baby was a gift from God since Doris couldn’t conceive and they decided to adopt her, they decided to call her by her birth name, Annie Mae. Over the next ten years, Annie would always develop bloody sores on the palms of her hands and the top of her feet during Easter weekend and just as mysteriously as the ailment appeared, it would disappear the Monday after Easter. Doctors had no answer for this ailment but Lear knew what the ailment was, Annie was stigmatic. The stigmata are bodily marks, sores, or sensations of pain in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus. Many people feel the blood seeping out of the wounds of stigmatics is the blood of Jesus Christ since the blood from the wounds and their blood type are two different blood types. Although the Moss’s were religious, after Lear told them what the ailment was they didn’t take the diagnosis seriously. Despite this, Annie grew up to be an ideal child. She was well rounded, respectful and well liked. Very popular in school and church. Parents, teachers and churchgoers adored her. At school, she made straight A’s and often tutored the kids who needed help. She was always trying to help others despite her young age. She was a joy to be around and mature beyond her years. LEAR (PRESENT DAY): Lear walked right past William and Doris with 10-year old Annie in her arms, wrapped in blankets. William said, Lear, I don’t feel good about this, have our child back tomorrow morning. Lear replied, okay, you can count on it, I promise. Annie woke up in the back seat of a car, she was sitting beside her aunt and another woman was driving. She sleepishly rubbed her eyes and focused on Lear. Lear realized she was awake and hugged her. Annie said, Auntie Lear, where are we going? Lear told her, darling, we’ll be there soon and then I’ll take you back home. That’s all you need to know right now, okay? Annie replied, okay. 15 minutes later, Lear and Dayna rushed into the hospital with Annie, who was wide awake. She said, Auntie Lear, why are we at the hospital? Sweetie, you have to trust Auntie, okay? Annie nodded her head. They arrived in G-Mac’s room. Jacks was crying, between tears she said, the doctors don’t expect G-Mac to last the night. I called the children but couldn’t bring myself to tell them their father is dying. Lear said, Jacks it’s going to be alright, I promise. This is my niece Annie, Jacks looked up and said a somber hello. Lear took Annie by the hand and led her to G-Mac, Jacks asked her, what are you doing? Lear said, just trust me, okay. Lear looked at Annie and said, I need you to do something for Auntie, I need you to pray over this man and I need your hands to touch his chest. Annie said, but Auntie, I haven’t
    • had a chance to wash my hands, there’s blood on them. Lear said, that’s okay baby, I don’t want you to wash your hands honey, just do what Auntie says. Remember the ‘Lords Prayer,’ that your daddy taught you? Annie nodded. Auntie wants you to recite it, Annie said okay. She stepped forward and placed her bloody palms face down on G-Mac’s chest, she then recited the Lord’s prayer. MARK: Just then, Mark Cummings walked by, his racist father had left his favorite ‘confederate flag’ cap in his hospital room earlier, Mark returned to retrieve it but for some reason, he stopped outside of G-Mac’s room, wondering what was going on with this young black girl reciting the Lord’s prayer with people gathered around. When Annie finished, the machine hooked up to G-Mack indicated his pulse had gotten stronger. Jacks rushed by Mark and got the doctor. The doctor ushered everyone out of the room and told them to wait in the waiting room. Mark discreetly followed them into the waiting room. 20 minutes later, the doctor came in and told Jacks, in all my years of medicine, I have never witnessed a miracle like this. Your husband has literally returned from the dead. Looks like he will make a full recovery. Jacks hugged Dayna and Lear clutched her niece. After the doctor left, Jacks told Annie, I don’t know what you did but thank-you so much, you are a miracle child, our prayers have been answered. Dayna was left speechless and looked at Annie with awe, she had never seen anything else like this before, she was amazed. Mark slipped out of the room unnoticed. Jacks, Dayna and Lear went to the hospital cafeteria to eat. Over conversation, Lear told them that Annie was a stigmatic although her brother William (Annie’s father) had trouble accepting it. She added, each Easter, Annie bleeds from open square shaped wounds on the palms of her hands and on the top of her feet. Similar to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus. The blood that seeps out of her squared shaped wounds is a different blood type than the blood type in her body. She has had this condition since birth. Jacks went around the table and hugged Annie. You are a gift from God young lady. Annie beamed. Lear and Dayna talked Jacks into leaving the hospital with them and Annie. She needed to get her rest, she hadn’t slept in hours. They were in underground parking getting in their car when a white man appeared out of nowhere holding a gun. He screamed, give me the child!
    • Lear asked him, are you crazy? We’re Federal Agents! The man then shot out the car tire to show he meant business then he turned to Lear and said, I don’t care who you are, you ain’t nothing but a n**er to me. He then forced Annie out of Lear’s arms. He put a gun to Annie’s head as she cried out, help me Auntie Lear! The man angrily told her, shut the fuck up, darkie! He started walking backwards with his arm clasped around the child’s neck. He threw Annie in a white van. He sped off, Lear and Jacks fumbled for their guns, Lear realized she had left her gun in her glove compartment and Jacks had left her gun at the crime scene in the chaos following G-Mac’s shooting. As the van sped away, Lear noticed it didn’t have a license plate and they couldn’t chase him because their tire was flat. Jacks said, who the hell was that racist asshole? Lear said, I don’t know but I’ve seen him somewhere before. Dayna said, try and remember because my gut tells me, Annie is in a world of trouble. Lear buried her head in her hands and said, what kind of trouble have I gotten my niece into? William and Doris are going to be furious with me. Dayna and Jacks consoled her, assuring her, everything will be okay. ANNIE: Mark took a swig from a can of beer and looked back at a frightened Annie. Stop your crying gal. I saw that ‘black magic’ show you put on in that hospital room. You gonna cure my Daddy of Parkinson’s disease. Shit, after you cure daddy, I’m going to pimp you out for big money to cure sick folks all over the world like a young voodoo priestess with healing powers. Hell, I got big moneymaking plans for you. I’m going to make a fortune off your black ass. When you can’t make us no more money and when we get tired of raping you, hell, we’ll bury you alive out back like we did that other girl. Annie sat frozen with a look of fear on her face. Mark took another swig of beer, wiped his mouth with the back of his hand and continued driving. LAURYN & CARTIER: Lauryn and Cartier were on an abandoned ship. Suddenly, they heard the sound of a helicopter approaching. They looked up. The chopper was headed towards them. It landed on the deck of the ship. They rushed to the chopper, inside, sat Miquel Lopez in the passenger seat. After they were safely seated in the back, Miquel told the pilot to take off. Miquel turned around, facing Lauryn and Cartier. ‘All the airports and train stations are crawling with Federal agents, so, we’re going to land at a friend’s house. He’s a wealthy
    • industrialist who owns two private jets. The jets sit near his isolated property on a private airstrip.’ ‘After we arrive, His pilot will fly you to a safe destination.’ TO BE CONTINUED.....
