The smell of the body was starting to get to Bone as we drove down the highway; the car reeked of fresh blood and sewer leakage. Goin down the dull lush street Bone runs into a pothole and flattens the driver side tire.
“Dammit! Bristol, I think we have a flat,” yelled Bone.
“Don’t tell me that shit! That’s the last thing I needed to hear”, I said.
“I think we have a spare in the back hopefully”, said Bone pulling over.
I rushed to the trunk to grab the jack and spare. All of sudden I saw bright lights flashing behind me.
“Shit the cops!”, yells Bone as I shut the trunk.
Two cops got out the vehicle with their hands on their weapons. “You all okay,” one of them said as they strolled up.
“Yea everything is fine just a flat, officer.” I tried to explain.
“Show me some Identification please,”
One officer said.
“No problem sir here you go.” Bone says as we both hand over our IDs.
One of the officers grabbed the IDs and ran them then came back whispered to the other officer looked at each other suspiciously, and pulled out their guns walking back towards the car.
“Driver, I need you to reach for the handle slow and open the door,” the Officer said. “Passenger, do not fucking move or you will be next in handcuffs, ” the other officer said.
“Officer what’s the problem we were just changing our flat”, Bone explains.
“Wrong asshole, apparently your friend here has a warrant out for his arrest. So legally, I can do what I want and since your being a smart ass I need to see what’s inside the trunk.”
“Sure, go ahead”, I said knowing that Bone and I were on our way to jail once they discovered the body in the trunk.
The officer walked toward the trunk when suddenly, they received a call
“Officer down, officer down 10-85!”
“10-4 in route. Looks like God was with you ladies today we have more important shit to handle, stay out of trouble, one officer said.
“That was close let us change this shit and get the hell out of here,” said Bone.
Back on the road, we were still looking for a secured place to dump the body, my head was still baffled by what just happened, and tonight in a whole was one I’ll never forget. All, of a sudden red, spotted a wooded area as we pulled over, got out, grabbed the shovels, and started digging.
“Let’s get the bastard buried so I can get home to wifey,” I said.
“Don’t forget about the deal in the morning with Hector?” said Bone.
“Oh, yea I almost forgot, man I’m getting fed up with this guy,” I said.
“Yea (laughing) I” might just get rid of his ass,” said Bone. ” You see what you got us into tonight,” I said, and you don’t want to fuck with them
Colombians trust me.
I pulled out my phone and had 20 missed calls from my girl Jane.
“You still messing with Jane psycho ass I see,” said Bone.
“Yea she not going, nowhere,” I said.
“That’s your problem you to busy chasing these women instead of money,” said Bone.
“Whatever just grab the damn body.”
We ended up getting away that day leaving no trace that’s just how Bone and I operated, we were going to get the job done no matter what and eliminate anyone who steps in our way. Later that night we decided to go to the dollhouse to blow off some steam. I ended up leaving with my regular that night and ended up making it home late. I crept into to bed without Jane noticing, well I thought I did. A few hours later I hear
“Oh yeah bitch!” said Jane, as she slaps me out of my sleep with my phone in her hand I knew it had to be serious from the rage in her eyes.
“What the fuck Jane!? ” I said Jumping out of bed. “What’s up with all these hoes in your fucking phone”? She said angrily.
” You worried about the wrong shit,” I said as I snatched the phone from her hand, “What the fuck are you going through my phone for anyway?” she tried to slap me again, but I saw it coming I took a step back and grabbed her arm but somehow she slaps me with her other hand.
” I’m getting tired of you just get your shit and go,” Jane said crying. In the middle of the argument, my phone rings. “Let me guess it’s one of your hoes”? Said Jane.
“Chill its business, hello? “What the hell are you doing”? “I’m outside I told you I’ll be here at 12 Bristol,” said Bone
“Oh shit, I forgot we had to do that I’m getting ready now” Jane looks at me with a disappointing stare” Where the fuck you think you going?” “I got to go make a drop real quick, I’ll be back,” I said.
“A drop? See that’s the shit I’m talking about every time shit gets heated between us something always comes up,” said Jane. “You knew the type of lifestyle I lived before you got with me”, I said.
“you think I care about your lifestyle? and you’re not going anywhere,” she said.
“How do you think the bills get paid? I don’t have time for your shit right now,” I said.
I walked to the closet to get dressed and got ready to leave. “When you get back we must talk about our situation,” Said Jane. “Yea we do I feel bad about what happened, I love you, I’ll make it up to you I promise babe,” I said walking out the door. You say that every time, nothing has changed “I need actions, not promises Bristol” said, Jane as I walked out the door. “Change of plans the connect said we are meeting at a new location,” said Bone “The fuck for?” I said.
“I don’t know he was acting weird when I talked to him,” said Bone. “I can’t put my finger on it, but I got a bad feeling about this guy Bone,” I said. “Stop being a pussy said, Bone. All of sudden his phone rings. “Speaking of the devil this him now,” said Bone.
“We are on the way now be there in about 15min”, Bone says with an irritated look on his face.
“What did he say?” I asked. “He told me to make it 10min, I don’t know what’s his problem talking to me crazy, I got something for his ass though but anyways whatever happened with you and that bitch from last night?” said Bone.” I took her to this motel and blew her back out and she sent me nudes this morning Jane got on my ass bro” I said laughing.
“You stay getting caught up, ” said Bone we both laugh then Bone turned the radio up as we headed to our destination. I felt a little funny like something wasn’t right. That drive on the way to the deal I didn’t know what it was, but I had a bad feeling in my gut like it’s a setup and every time I get this feeling I’m right. When we arrived, the Colombians were standing outside looking pissed. Where’s the product? Said, Hector, as we walked up I threw a duffel bag with 4 kilos of cocaine. “Where’s the money?” said Bone Hector looked at one of his men holding a suitcase as a sign to hand over the money
“I still don’t understand why we had to change locations,” says Hector.
I thought Hector wanted to change locations I said to myself confusingly. As four men on motorcycles pull up each holding an automatic weapon killing Hector and his comrades, Bone and I also got hit suddenly a black SUV pulls up some guy gets out, pick Bone up and put him in the back of the SUV.
“He’s waking up!” I heard a lady’s voice said as the vision cleared.
I was in a bed in what clearly looked like a hospital. When I awoke I didn’t feel normal it wasn’t like waking up in the morning, in fact, it didn’t feel like it had been over a year. I was weaker and confused.
“How are you feeling?” the Doctor asked. Feeling lost and too frail to even consider answering, I just nodded. “You suffered from head trauma when you were shot in your back, you fell and hit your head. Luckily, the bullet missed your spine by a few inches. I just need to check your vital signs to make sure everything is fine”. How long have I been in here? I asked.
“You’ve been here since January,” replied the Doctor. “What month is it?”, I asked.
“It’s December” the Doctor replied ed.
“December!? You have to be joking!” yelled Bristol. “I have to get out of here I have a business to run,” I said.
“Don’t worry, we’re just waiting for some test results to come back. If everything looks good then you should be out of here by 3 weeks, until then less stress, more rest” said the Doctor, walking out the room. Growing impatient, I decided to sneak out, so I grabbed my clothes. While leaving the room, I saw a staircase so; I maneuvered my way to it without being seen by the nurses and doctors. Getting to the first bus stop I have seen, all I could think was
“How could this shit happen?”
I should have known when Bone said Hector changed locations; he never changes how he does business. I have to get to the house so I can figure this shit out. Getting off the bus, I walk up to the door and rang the doorbell. When she answered the door, her face was in a shock as this guy emerged from behind her “Can I help you?” he asked,
“Who the hell is he?” I replied looking at Jane “I’m her boyfriend Todd”. I then punched him knocking him to the floor.
“What the hell is going on?” Yells Todd as he gets up. “That was a cheap shot”. “I think you should leave for now I’ll call you later Todd ” Jane said.
“Are you serious? Whatever just call me later, ok?” Said Todd, as he reaches to give her a kiss but she turns her head “Oh it’s like that? Ok” Todd said walking away.
Jane closes the door as I stepped in, “I see you move on quickly,” I said. “I thought you were dead” she stated, “Why are you here anyway?” She asked. “I need my safe storage key. I know you got it. Where is it?” She goes into her bedroom to get the key. I knew by the way she was behaving, that she was either involved or had knowledge of what happened. “So why weren’t you at the hospital Jane?” I asked as I grabbed this knife sitting on the table.
“Like I said I thought you were dead,” she said to me. I asked her “So you didn’t think to come to the hospital to see if I was”. “No”, she said apprehensively giving me the key. I pulled her in close as I smiled and kissed her. “I can forgive a lot of things but, what I can’t do is let myself trust someone who lies to me,” I said stabbing her. Her blood started dripping to the floor hundreds of drops, like a red rain of death her legs began to give in, I let her go as she dropped to the floor. I cleaned up the mess and wrapped her body to get rid of it. The next day I got up early to dump the body and to dig up the safe containing $25,000, I had buried in case something happened. This should keep me afloat for the time being. Next, I went to the car wash to get the smell of Jane’s body out of the car. Walking in the car wash, I notice the manager arguing with one of his employees. “Damn kid where the hell you been? I’ve been calling your phone for about 20 minutes now!” said Andy the manager. “I’m sorry Andy. Man I got into a little situation” said Chris.
“This is the third time this week. I’m sorry, I’m going to have to let you go,” said Andy walking off.
“What the hell? I was only 5 minutes past grace”, said Chris furiously.
He noticed I was watching from afar. “What the hell you looking at?” he asked, as he walks out of the car wash. I followed after him.
“Hey man,” I said stopping him “What’s up?” Chris responded.
“I saw what happened in there. If you ever want to make some real money I got a job for you” Oh yeah what’s the job?” he asked. I said, “Let’s exchange numbers I’ll call you with the details”. Chris replied “Ok cool”. On his way home, Chris ran into some guys from a rival neighborhood. “Damn I don’t have time for this,” he said as he locked eyes with the two men. They proceed by disrespecting him with gang signs; he then gets out to confront the two men, but they pulled out guns and fired at Chris so he runs back to the car to avoid the gunfire.
“Damn I can’t keep living like this,” he says as he starts his car and drove off, but the two men cut Chris off as he tries to make a turn, but runs into a curve. Later that day Chris was laying in his bed with his hands behind his head thinking while looking up at the ceiling when suddenly he gets a knock at the door.
It’s Rico his friend from the neighborhood.
“Wassup homie,” says Rico, as Chris opens the door “Ain’t shit, what’s good?”
“I heard what happened at the shop,” Rico said laughing.
“Man fuck that nigga he was on some more shit I was like 10 minutes late.”
“Yeah, but don’t even worry about it. I came to talk to you about some business anyways” says Rico as he pulls out a marijuana joint and lights it.
“What it’s looking like?” Says Chris as Rico passes him the joint.
“I got this chick on the south side, her daddy fucks with them valley niggas. She said that nigga got 9 ounces of some dope and 2 AK’s.”
“Why are you fucking with them south side hoes especially them bitches on the valley you know we don’t fuck with them, and how you plan on getting this shit?” Says Chris.
“Man doesn’t worry about all of that everything is green, she wants me to come over later on tonight her daddy goes to work like around eight o’clock. I just need to know if you down?”, Says Rico.
“Nigga I’m down I’m just not for the crash dummy shit.”,Says Chris handing the joint back.
“Bro you know you good with me.”
“Man comes back through later on bro,” said Chris.
A few hours later Rico knocks at the door. “You ready or you went pussy out on me?” Says Rico.
“Nigga lets go,” said Chris
“Ok bet my sister let me use her van said, Rico.
“Let me drive”, said Chris”Rico gives him the keys and both get in the car.
As they pulled up to the girl’s house they made sure to stay low profiled and out of the sight of rival gang members.”
Ok look I’m about to go in I ‘ma text you when it’s good”. Rico says as he gets out of the van, heads to the front door, and rings the doorbell.
“Hey, baby come in, lock the door behind you,” The girl says as she opens the door.
“Ok,” says Rico locking door then unlocks it when Nina walks towards the room.
Chris gets a text from Rico letting him know it’s good to come in, and where everything was. He then gets out walked inside the house quietly as possible, while walking to Nina’s dad’s room he overhears Rico and Nina having sex and starts laughing as he goes into the room. Chris opens the closet and spots the 9 oz’s, and guns Rico was talking about also a bag with $5000 inside. He then puts the dope in the bag with the money, grabs the guns, and heads out the door. As he puts the bag in the car, he notices a red van pulling up in the front yard. He then gets in and texts Rico.
Rico putting his clothes back on receives the text. “Oh shit your daddy here”, he yells.
“Why you say that?”, Nina asked while lying in the bed.
“I think I saw him pull up”, says Rico as he looks out the bedroom window
“Isn’t that him?”, said Rico.
“That is him Ok look just chill. When he goes in the garage go out the window” she said. ”
Nina! Why the fuck my door open?” Her dad yells. Rico opens, jumps out of the window, and runs to the van then gets in. “Damn you almost got your ass caught.” Says Chris speeding away. Fuck all that did you get the shit? ” asks Rico “Hell yeah, bro and the nigga had 5 racks in a duffel”
“Ah, shit my nigga let’s get this money.” They celebrated as they drove off, and headed back to the neighborhood.
Nina walks downstairs, as her dad, stands in the doorway looking furious.
“Nina, Why is my door wide open!?” He yelled. “I don’t know dad I’ve been in the room sleep since you left this morning”. “You’re telling me this entire time I been gone you were sleep while somebody was robbing our house.”? He asked her sarcastically. “Yes, dad, I was knocked out I didn’t hear anything at all.”
“You know I have surveillance cameras, right? We’re about to get to the bottom of this shit right now”. ” “Ok I admit I invited a boy over while you were gone but he was with me the entire time I swear,” she said anxiously.
“So, you lied to me? I’ve told your ass a thousand times never to invite anyone in my house!” He yells.
“I know dad I’m sorr-“.
“Sorry!? I taught you better than this Nina”, he said as he pulls up the surveillance footage.
“It looks like your friend brought someone else with him, and while you two were in the room doing lord knows what he was doing the robing”.
“Tell me this fuckers name right now.”
“All I know is Rico we just met”.
“That make shit even worse you don’t even know this guy but you invite him to your house how dumb can you be Nina?” He said as he continued to shout.
Daddy, I’m sorry. Being sorry not about to change the fact that my shit has been stolen. You can say bye to your little friend because that shit is over with now tell me where he lives.
“I don’t know honestly, I only know where we first met and a few places he likes to hang”.
“Get to talking!”
“We met at club L28 he goes there every Saturday night he’s one of their top club promoters
“Good, now I want you to call him on the phone”.
” Yes right now and put it on speaker, act like nothing happened just like you would if I wasn’t around and tell him that I just left and you want him to come back over”.
She nods her head and makes the call but it’s going to voicemail. That youngster smart I’ll give him that but don’t worry about it if he goes to those spots like you says he does ill catch him slipping. He walks to his room to make a call.
“Bone! What’s going on boss man?”
“You know taking it one day at a time”, Bone said.
“That’s good to here I was calling to let you know a small situation happened today but you don’t have to worry-”
“What do you mean by the situation? Don’t fuck with me right now Ace” Bone says as he interjects.
“Don’t worry I caught them on camera” Ace says nervously.
“Well send the footage to my phone and we will figure out what to do from there,” Bone says as he hangs up the phone and walks into a warehouse, as he approaches two men waiting inside.
“Well, it took you long enough.”
One of them said looking at him furiously.
“My apologies Gator, I ran into a situation I hope you weren’t waiting too long but what I have to talk to you about is worth the wait”.
“So what exactly are you trying to do and how can my organization benefit?”
“Well from what I understand the 53rd Street family are one of the most feared and respected gangs in the city and with my connects and money we can take over the city together”. I don’t know that’s something”.
“I would have to sit down with my people and talk about,” says Gator.
“We can take over these streets. Either these dudes get money with us or we blow shit up! You feel me G?” Bone explained.
They shook hands and came to an agreement when bone when suddenly Bones gets a text message from Ace sending him the surveillance footage.
“Everything good?” Gator asks as Bone looks at the surveillance video with frustration.
“One of my distributors was hit today and some of my product was stolen” Bone explained.
“Aye I recognized them, says Gator glancing at bones phone.
“Oh, you do?”
“Yeah they be on 62nd Street, they’re down with a little crew called 6 deuce Outlaws. On the off chance that you need this circumstance dealt with I can deal with it for you”, Gator says.
“Say no more” Bone says as they shake hands and both leave
2 hours later…
Chris and Rico were trying to find a way to get rid of the 9 oz when Chris gets a phone call. “Hello, who is this?” Chris said as he answers the phone. “Yes this is Bristol we met at the carwash I told you I would give you a call about a job”
“Oh, yea so what’s up with it?”
“Can you tome at my hotel? I rather”
have this conversation in person”.
“Yes send me the address”, Chris said as he hangs up the phone.
Bro, I need you to take me somewhere real quick but when I get back we can figure out what we’re going to do with this shit”, Chris says to Rico.
“Okay cool, I got you I’m trying to get back to the hood and get on this dice game anyway”, Rico said as they made their way to Bristol’s hotel.
62nd St, 10:26 PM. The dice game was in full effect in the alley next to Rico’s house, which reeked of weed.
“Roll them fuckin’ dice and lose ya fuckin’ money, nigga!”, Rico hollered as a red van pulled alongside them.
Three men in sleeveless tees and dull dark-colored ski masks jumped out shooting as everyone scatters, one of the men snatches Rico and toss him in the back of the truck as they all get back in the truck and drive off….. To be continued.
