And the words:

The words couldn’t have been delivered with more force if they’d been accompanied by a swift kick to this gut.” ― Lorraine Heath, Surrender to the Devil


“You’ve let this property go to seed,” Albert said with great contempt. His words couldn’t have been delivered with more force if they’d been accompanied by a swift kick to this gut as Matt prided himself on his careful estate management.

The sprawling villa by the beach was his cover as a wealthy businessman. The truth was that it was just a front for his drug trafficking and he needed to maintain the facade to avoid suspension.

He promised Albert to get the necessary repairs done to the fencing and the property. He didn’t want to run afoul of his partner, for Albert may look like a genial uncle but was in actuality a ruthless man. As they both walked back to the house, Smith came in with the drinks tray. He poured them both his special cocktails and left.

“I like this man of yours Matt,” Albert said. “Where did you find him?”

“A friend recommended him, why?”

I was thinking of offering him a job”, said Albert.

“You won’t need to! You’re both under arrest for drug trafficking. We were waiting for him to show up. Now we have you both” said Smith as he handcuffed them both.
