PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 23 CHAPTER 24 At the reception, the men of the FCID introduced themselves and stated their mission. “Alright. Shall we?”
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 22 CHAPTER 23 Zach lay back in bed as the nurse, an elderly woman with a friendly smile, packed up her stuff and made to leave the room. “Please, turn that up” he said, referring to the TV. She did as he requested, waved the remote in the air with a small “Hallelujah” and left.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 21 CHAPTER 22 “Get in the car! Driver’s seat!” Mike ordered as he shoved Zaneta with his pistol while remotely unlocking the same BMW she and Zach had come in. The brand was marred for life in her perception. “Put both hands where I can see them” Mike said.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 20 CHAPTER 21 He had woken up at 6:20am, drenched in night sweats. He immediately went out to his SUV and had his driver take him to his house where he took a shower and changed into fresh clothes for the day. A quick call confirmed that the VP candidate had meetings all morning at a Party office on the mainland, so he headed there.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 19 CHAPTER 20 As the helicopter rose steadily from the earth, Zach looked around the grounds and access roads to the helipad while he ignored Zaneta who was busy taking pictures. He spotted two vehicles he had noticed at different times on their way here. They were parked together and he could make out men standing around, one of them was on the phone frantically making a call.

PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 17 CHAPTER 18 “I’m all ears, babe” Zach said. Instinctively, he activated his call recorder app. Something told him this was important. “Just trust me, Z” he thought. “Yes, Daddy?” he heard her over the line, then “I’ll call you back” to him, and she was gone. He lay back on the recliner and waited.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 16 CHAPTER 17 “Hey” Zaneta heard Alice’s voice. She looked up to find her friend smiling knowingly at her from the door. “Thought you left immediately” Zaneta said. “I did, came back for my slippers. Can’t do an extra minute in these heels” Alice replied.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 15 CHAPTER 16 Zach looked at the screen of his phone. The Rtd. General hardly ever called anyone. Everyone just gravitated towards him. You called him and he decided whether or not to speak with you. If he ever called you, understand that your well-being depended on it. He wasn’t called the Mai Yaki for nothing.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHAPTER 14 CHAPTER 15 “You really like the car, no?” Zach asked as Zaenta sat in the car and turned the ignition. It was getting quite late and they had agreed she had better get going. “Almost” she replied. “What does that mean?” “Nothing, jare“ “No. Talk, I want to hear all about it” he said, eyes twinkling with mischief.
