Outlaw Penalty Into Chapter 5
Chapter 1 When There’s Only Money Between Us. Today I saw an apparition. It was my grandfather. He knew my destination and warned me against it. I only continued because I was obligated. Usually, I take into account such omens but his spirit quickly became unrecognizable so I stepped off to visit one of my greatest adversaries and best of friends. Peace or war, laughter or tears? High-stakes poker pushing past all fears. We’ve been knowing each other for at least twenty years. This is strictly a business call but I didn’t want to lose a week trying to catch up with this guy so I went to the neighborhood that we used to share and hung around for a couple of days until I ran into him. I was trying to get a sample of a metal alloy for one of my clients. They wanted to reverse engineer it and it was being held in a vault in Cairo. My associate had contacts in the Egyptian consulate. I just wanted to use his inside man but I know he loves money so he’d do his best to keep himself in the middle.
