The Joy of Revenge Novel Chapter 79

CHAPTER 79 Hero
Sam
New Salem was such a small town, it was hard to blend in with the people. Everyone here knew each other. So, instead of blending in with the town’s folk, I conceal myself, working as a ghost, a shadow. I know these people have seen me from the corner of their eyes, but before they could even turn their heads and focus their eyes on me, po of… I was gone.
After placing a tracking device on Pete McDowell’s silver Audi, my mini-laptop pinged. I ducked behind the fancy cars and took cover behind the trees near the funeral home.
I quickly pulled out my laptop from my pack. Someone was in trouble and I had to answer
the call.
Satellite messengers belonging to Leo and Benny were sending a distress signal and global satellite positioning pointed to the back of the funeral home.
Well, what do you know? I’m already here.
I sent out a group message to my feam who were at Old Man Eugene’s property to prepare for an extraction at Chimes Funeral Home, sending them coordinates of Leo and Benny’s
exact location. I told them to hustle… We had two of our own to rescue. I placed my mini- laptop back in my bag and hoofed it to the back of the funeral home.
I noticed a huge black truck making its way inside the compound, so I decided to hitch a ride. The truck slowed down as it entered, passing through the gates of a typical hexagonal wired fence without any ha ssle.
I jumped off the truck and hid behind the garbage bins near the docking area of the funeral home. Once the truck had parked its trailer into the docking area, I snuck inside, using the darkness to conceal myself.
The back of the funeral home was a dump. It had hazardous chemicals everywhere, boxes. upon boxes of s hit and coffin material lying around. It was smelly, dirty, dank and dusty, and it was terribly dark as if the owners disliked investing on light bulbs.
Plastic flap doors separated the embalming area from the outside. I quickly snuck into the embalming area and hid behind boxes of chemicals in a corner. That’s when I saw Theodore Cohen come out from a door, bound and gagged, being led by some punk holding a gun to a big room which looked like the funeral home’s crematorium.

I looked above my head to check for CCTV cameras. Not one in sight. Good. It’ll make my job a lot easier.
The truck was a good distraction. All the men were outside loading coffins into the trailer. There was a lot yelling and the fork lift was hella noisy.
While I crouched down in my hiding spot, my eyes having finally adjusted to the dark, I noticed a red gasoline container. I was planning our escape when I heard Beaufort’s voice on
coms.
“Sam, what’s your status?” He asked casually, knowing I had already seen the distress signal.
“I’ve entered the back of the funeral home. Theodore Cohen is here, his hands are bound and
his mouth taped. The back is crawling with critters. They’re loading coffins into a huge black truck. License plate five eight one, echo lima charlie with ‘Chimes Coffins and Funeral Homes’ painted on the trailer.”
“Do you know what they’re planning to do with Theodore?” Beaufort asked.
“No. But he has an ugly m otherf ucker with a gun guarding him. I don’t see Leo and Benny but their SMs are pinging near this area,” I answered.
“Where are you exactly?” Xavier asked.
“Embalming area and crematorium. There’s a door that leads inside the viewing area. I suspect Leo and Benny are being held captive somewhere there.”
“Formaldehyde is flammable, Sam, and the crematorium uses gas,” he said, indirectly telling me to use the resources I had around me to create a fire. “Alert us when you have them,” Beaufort instructed.
“Copy that.”
I crept towards the gasoline container, silently praying there was gasoline in it. I guess Go d was watching over us Blood Disciples, because it was filled with gasoline.
Now, I had to wait… patiently for an opportunity. If they were going to execute Leo and Benny, it’ll probably be here where it’s easy to clean the blood up and dispose of their bodies.
I peeked through the plastic fla ps and noticed the men had just finished loading their cargo onto the truck. Several of the men jumped inside the truck while the others climbed into

ked before it exited the compound. A shame it had to leave before the exploded. It would have been a great getaway vehicle.
I suddenly heard a phone ring. The punk guarding Theodore answered his phone, then gestured to Theodore to walk back inside.
“Let’s go,” he said to Theodore. Theodore stood up and walked back inside. When the both of them disappeared, I began prepping up for the distraction to facilitate our escape.

I quickly covered the in gasoline, making sure the boxes of chemicals were
doused in it.
Since all the men had left for the night, I walked to the door that led to the inside and opened it, discovering it opened to a well-lit hallway with several doors across from it.
I couldn’t wait in the hallway. I was a sitting duck. I had to wait out here until I saw Leo and
Benny before I could make my move..
After several minutes, the door at the far end opened and out came Leo and Benny, tied and
gagged being led by two humongous gorillas. I heaved a huge sigh of relief, seeing the both of them were still breathing.
“X, I see them. Prepare for extraction. Over,” I whispered through my coms.
“Roger that,” Beaufort answered. I switched coms to communicate with my team.
“Team, prepare for extraction.”
“Team is on standby outside your location, Sam, answered Link. He may be an attorney, but he loved the action. “X, standby for extraction.”
It was a warning to Beaufort and to whoever was with him to get the hell out of here. Escape and extraction with a corresponding distraction usually meant an explosion.
I hid behind the door and waited for the two gorillas to exit before knocking the both of them out with the butt of my gun. After cutting the nylon cables binding Leo and Benny’s wrists, I handed Leo my gun and gestured for them to head outside so I could ignite the gasoline. I lit up my lighter, throwing it into the puddle of gasoline on the floor, then dashed outside so I could lead Leo and Benny to safety.

Link and the rest of the team were waiting behind the trees with their motorcycles.
“Extraction a success. I repeat, extraction a success. Taking Leo and Benny home,” Link announced, handing Leo and Benny each a helmet.
I turned to look at the damage I caused and found Chimes Funeral Home engulfed in flames.
I switched my coms. “Lou, I need you to erase all CCTV footage of the Chimes Funeral
Homes.”
*Sam, you got it. By the way, well done.”

Dark clouds of smoke circled around us. I covered my nose and mouth with a handkerchief, plowing against the frightened people who were trying to escape the fire.
I saw Pete making his way to the front, his arm covering his mouth. I was about to ask him. where my father was, but the a ss hole pushed me aside and quickly ran out.
“Dad, where are you?” I yelled out, squinting my eyes, desperate to find him..
Suddenly, a hand grabbed my leg. I crouched down and saw my father lying on the ground, underneath Cynthia McDowell’s coffin.
I handed my father my handkerchief to shield him from the smoke.
“Cris, we need to push the coffin off of him,” I croaked. The smoke was stinging my eyes and I couldn’t breath.
Cris nodded his head and positioned himself at one end while I grabbed the other end. Slowly, we lifted the coffin up and pushed it aside, enough for my father to crawl out from
underneath it.
Cris pulled him up on his feet, placing my father’s arm around his shoulders, We were about to leave when I heard a woman’s voice cry out for help.

Cris, go. I’ll follow you,” I said. It took me a few moments, but I found the woman crouched. down on the ground. I lifted her up and quickly led her outside.
Once outside, the town’s firemen and EMTs assisted us, providing us with first aid and
oxygen.
“Thank you, Liam,” Norma Martin said while breathing through her mask. “You saved my life.”
“Seems you’re a hero, Liam,” Sheriff Combs said, finally arriving at the scene. “You’ll be headlining tomorrow’s news. Actually, all this will be headline news.”
I glanced at Pete who was seated on a stretcher receiving first aid.
He looked furious.
