CHAPTER 88 Save Ms. Lawrence
Joy
Inside Xavier’s office, before I dressed into my suit, Xavier explained what we were about to do. It was brief, but thorough. I would be his point man in Marla’s neighborhood while he would assist me from a distance. He believed Pete’s men would underestimate me, especially if I wore something se xy that left nothing to the imagination. Xavier assumed Pete’s men wouldn’t contact each other, thinking they could do away with me on their own. I asked Xavier why not use a signal jammer. He said we’d be affected too. Fair enough.
“It’s safe to assume whoever’s there has to check in every now and then. So expect there might be back-up,” Xavier reminded me while I tucked my hair into a black skull nodded my head listening to all his last minute reminders.

Before he left me to get his dirt bike ready, Xavier gave me a pep talk. He put his hands on my shoulders and looked at me as if I was one of his men.
“I know you have qualms hurting and even killing people, but J, Pete’s men have been aiding him since he became underboss. They aren’t innocent; they’re his accomplices. They’re no better. Remember what he has already done to you. Use that rage you’ve held on for so long and channel it to help these women, to help the people of this town. Every single person you kill tonight, that is one less person who will hurt someone else,” he explained.
I inhaled deeply. “I understand, X. Let’s kill these sons of bitc hes and save Ms. Lawrence.”
Xavier smiled. “I knew I could count on my girl. Saddle up. You’re taking the Dodge,” he said, handing me his keys. Then he left the room so I could get ready on my own.
I glanced at myself in the mirror while I suited up and I saw a young Joy Taylor with chestnut brown hair and aquamarine eyes in a lovely white gown staring back at me. Suddenly, the reflection changed… I saw the same Joy Taylor, but with a scarred face and broken leg. My hands instantly balled into fists remembering all the pain they had cause me. It was time to give them a taste of their own medicine.
After dressing into an all black one piece fitted leather suit and black boots, I equipped myself with certain items and armed myself with my weapon of choice. Once I was done, exited Xavier’s office and climbed into his black Dodge Charger, placing a small backpack with all of Ms. Lawrence’s favorite things on the passenger’s seat beside me.
“You ready, J?” Xavier said, testing our
communication devices, as I waited for the

warehouse’s gates to fully open. He was already outside on his motorcycle, dressed in tactical gear with a sn iper rifle on his back.
“I’m ready,” I said, gripping the steering wheel with my gloved hands, excited to be able to use what I’ve learned all these years. It was time to put me to the test. I didn’t want to be remembered by just one incidental kill. I wanted the Blood Disciples to know I have what it
the takes to be on the field. Plus, if I prove to them I’m capable of killing without remorse, boys wouldn’t need to hover so much.
Remember Joy, they killed Joan, Delgado, and so many others. They even kidnapped Marla. They
don’t deserve to live…
I turned the ignition on, loving the powerful sound of the engine, then drove off towards Marla’s home.
As I entered the residential area, I was shocked to see the dilapidated houses, the garbage on the streets, the rough roads, and the vandalized structures. When I was growing up, this particular neighborhood was the Hillcrest of today. Many families scurried to get homes here. Now, it was utterly neglected.
“I, I’m in position and scanning the perimeter,” Xavier said. “I see a dark blue car parked across the street from the Lawrence’s with two men seated inside. I also see a silver car parked in front of the next door neighbor’s house with two men sitting inside it as well. D amn, I can’t see inside the house though, but I see shadows. If we don’t time this properly, the men in the cars may alert the men inside Marla’s home. You take the blue car across the street while I take the one parked next door. By the way, we need to be as quiet as possible so we don’t alert anyone. Don’t forget to signal me when you’re done.”
“Copy that,” I said, shutting off my headlights before I turned the corner, parking the car three houses down from my target. I took my gun and attached my silencer, then walked out onto the sidewalk with the gun behind my back. I ducked between the other cars parked along the street, checking if any of the men in either cars had noticed my arrival. It seem they were busy on their smartphones..
“Base, I need you to turn off the power in this neighborhood when I say so,” I heard Xavi tell Cristos while I approached my assigned vehicle.
“Working on it. Give me a couple of minutes, X, Cristos said.
I quickly crept towards the car, making sure no one was watching from inside their homes. Once I got to the car, I calmly knocked on the window of the passenger side, crouched dow smiling at the men through the window. I pulled the zipper of my leather suit down to shot

them some cleavage.
“X, I’m about to take down my target,” I mumbled.
“You have a green light,” Xavier said.
The idiot seated at the passenger side quickly opened his door.
“Hey beautiful! How can I help you?” The man said, leering at me. His breath smelled like cigarettes, alcohol and onions. Gripping my gun, I moved to get a good look at the both of them, noticing they were distracted by the sight of my breasts.
I quickly pulled my gun out from behind me and shot the both of them in the chest, then again in the head.
“I need you to die. Sorry boys.” I said, shutting the door quietly. I continued back to my car in a crouching position, giving Xavier the signal I was done.
As if on cue, I heard the characteristic wh izzing sound of bullets flying through the air before it penetrated the windshield of the car across from the one I was.
As I crept back to my car, I glanced at the one Xavier had just shot at. I saw huge bullet holes in the windshield and two corpses with blood dripping from their heads.
Once I was safely back inside my car, I zipped myself back up and contacted Xavier. “X, target neutralized.”
“Yes, I can see that. Good job. Unfortunately, my hit wasn’t sound proof. If the neighbors heard that, they may have already alerted the Sheriff. So we need to act fast. Judging by the shadows in Marla’s house, I count two more inside. Knock on Ms. Lawrence’s door with bottle in your hand,” Xavier instructed. “Once I see Ms. Lawrence, I will know who to
at.”
“What if it’s a friend of hers, X?” I asked, not wanting any collateral damage. “Let me this. I moved out of my parking space and slowly drove to Marla’s house.
“Alright. I’ll let you handle this,” Xavier said, agreeing with me. “Just have Ms. Lawrenc
with you before the Sheriff gets here. I’ll cover you.”
I parked the car in front of the Lawrence residence, placed my night vision goggles on th top of my head, grabbed the bottle of alcohol I Had brought with me and walked towards
door with my gun behind my back.

I rang the doorbell and waited. I noticed the curtains of the front window move, behind it a distinct shadow of a man. I looked down at the cra ck underneath the door and saw shadows moving behind the door.
“X, I have one by the window and one possibly behind the door,” I mumbled through my
coms.
“I see him. Base, I need you to turn off the lights when I give the signal,” Xavier said.
“Copy,” Cristos replied. I quickly planned what I had to do in my head. I prayed the men inside didn’t see me as a threat.
I inhaled deeply, planted a smile on my face and rang the doorbell again.
It took several moments before Ms. Lawrence finally opened the door. Through the side cra ck of the door, I noticed a man lying flat against the wall. Obviously, not a friend.
I smiled warmly at Marla’s mother. She was shaking and looked quite agitated. Her eyes kept
darting to the door.
“Good evening, Ms. Lawrence. I’m-”
“I know you,” she said while gripping her yellow colored shawl that was resting on her shoulders. “You’re the pretty girl who moved into the Old Taylor House. Everyone talks about you. How can I help you?”
“There’s a costume party being held at a friend’s place and there’s a lot of food and beverages for everyone. Marla mentioned earlier this afternoon when I saw her that you loved to attend
parties,” I said
“I would like to invite you as my guest. How about you get ready while I wait
inside?”
“Ah, no. I’d love to go, but you see I, uh, I have-”
“Come now, Ms. Lawrence. You don’t want to keep Marla waiting,” I said.
At the sound of Marla’s name, the man by the window moved. “I’m going in,” I mumble under my breath.
“Base, lights off now!” The whole neighborhood immediately went pitch black.
I quickly pulled down my night vision goggles perched on the top of my head and rushe

of premium scotch at the man in the living room.
Pulling out my gun from behind me, I quickly shot the man standing in the living room before shooting the man behind the door in between his eyes. I went back to the man lying in the living room and shot him again… in the head. Clean. No witnesses.
“Ms. Lawrence, are there any more of them?” I asked, walking back outside. She was shaking uncontrollably.
“There were just two-”
“X, make sure no one comes after us,” I said.
“Copy. Keeping an eye on the door,” Xavier said.
I grabbed Ms. Lawrence by the shoulders and led her to the car, but she pulled away.
“1-I need to g-get my things,” she said.
The characteristic sound of tires screeching from a distance made the hairs on the back of my neck stand at attention. “X, what do you have?” I asked, taking out a syringe from my pocket. I would have to sedate Ms. Lawrence and drag her to the car. We didn’t have much
time.
“I have a black van headed towards you, Xavier said. “Base, keep the lights from turning back on until J has flown the coop.”
“No on will be turning the power back on except for me,” Cristos assured us.
I walked behind Ms. Lawrence, placing the syringe to her neck.
“What the-” Ms. Lawrence wasn’t able to finish her sentence. The drugs kicked in almo instantly, knocking her out unconscious.
For a small and frail woman, she was heavy. I was able to get her into the car before a headlights came barreling towards me. I quickly took my night vision goggles off and t
cover.
Again, I heard the sound of bullets w hiz zing by before the van hit a lamp post. I quickly entered the car and drove off, speeding through the potholes that marred the streets.
“Good work, J,” Xavier said. “Base, what’s the 411 on the Sheriff?”
CHAPTER 88 Save Ms. Lawrence
“He’s still at the station. I rerouted all incoming calls from that area. J, you should be safe to
come back,” Cristos said.
“I’ll keep an eye out until you get out of there,” Xavier promised.
As I was about to exit Marla’s residential area, a car blocked my path. Two men walked out, their guns aimed straight at me.
*X, I need assistance,” I said, raising my hands above my head. The two men sneered at me thinking they had me cornered and gestured for me to exit the car.
“I have them in my sights,” Xavier said.
I opened the door, pretending to come out of the car, so they would stop walking towards
me, giving Xavier a stationary target. After a few seconds, blood splattered from their heads.
Xavier was such a great marksman:
I closed the door and went around their car. “Thank you, X.” I quickly sped out of Marla’s
neighborhood, not wanting to get caught in anymore trouble.
At the warehouse, Link was waiting beside one of Xavier’s trucks. Xavier carried Ms.
Lawrence and placed her in the cot at the back of the truck while I drove the car into the
trailer.
“Link, head to Mandan. They’ll be safe there for the time being. I have Sam interrogating oné of Pete’s men. Pete has a safe house somewhere in Bismarck… we just don’t know where,”
Xavier said.
“Primo can’t find properties listed under his name?” Link asked surprised.
“Yep. Seems like their safe house is under another name.”
“Tell Primo to look for a cooperation or company of theirs. It might be listed under th company name,” Link said, opening the door to the truck. “I’ll call you once the daugh
reunited with her mother.”
After the doors to the warehouse closed behind the truck, Xavier placed his arm around waist, pulled my body against his and lowered his head for a kiss. I melted in his arms w his tongue entangled with mine. It felt so good to be in his arms again.
When he finally lifted his head, I was breathless with desire.
