An impromptu meeting after a few days. That a few days has passed doesn't mean that the fire has died down. Mister Jimmy just got out of the hospital, but is still so weak and Melody hasn't been found. Her family has been frantically trying to get their hands on any piece of information that works to lead to her whereabouts, but to no avail.To the best of their knowledge, Duke has been trying to help, that's what he appears to be doing. He has been trying to solve the case of the man killed in his presence instead. Duke has spent a lot of his time thinking about why the man he went to kill was killed off by some unknown people and it still doesn't make sense to him. Why? Who sent them? What did he know that they wanted to go? Which piece of information was worth his life? With that loud thought in his head, Duke still drives to the Futtermans' house and he sees a lot of cars just before he gets to the house, he sees many cars parked and waiting. He doesn't wait, he turns off
Duke looks at the address that Bloom sent him, it also contains a plea for Duke not to kill the man himself, but to let Bloom do it. Duke reads through the address one more time, ignores the attached note, and he drives away. He makes sure that it's night, he has a silencer and he is going to make it as silent as possible – as painless too. He plans to just grab him behind his neck, the way an assassin would, and then put a bullet in his head. Duke finally gets to the address, it's not a house, but a trailer park, and he parks the car. He reads the address again, he doesn't want to go to the wrong house, he doesn't want to do that. When he is sure, he puts the gun in between his pants, and then he walks out of the car. He looks around to make sure that he is the only one that is there when Duke walks into the house. He pulls the door and it opens easily. He walks through the door and shuts it. He takes out the gun and cocks it. The television is on, but no one is watching it.
Duke looks at the mangled body of Jim as two make servants lower him into the body bag. He has seen a lot of dead bodies – hell, he has killed a lot of people – but this is hitting him so hard because he didn't see this coming. He remembers Jim's wife who came crying and how he promised her that her husband would come back home to her. That's a promise that has been broken forever. The men zip up the bag and take the body out of the basement. Duke presses himself against the wall as he doesn't want to come in any form of contact with the body, he doesn't want to even look at it. Mister Joseph pulls out a stick is cigarette from his pocket and lights it, he is smoking a fucking cigarette when he has just killed someone. And to think that Duke thought he was different from his father. " You said you killed him with only a punch. "Duke's voice is low. " Why does he look like he has been run over by a train?" Mister Joseph takes out his cigarette and looks at it as he laughs. " I
Melody hears her frightened breath that doesn't calm down no matter how hard she tries. Halfway through the kidnap, she was injected with something that made her pass out and now she has woken up with her eyes blinded by a cloth. She feels herself still in a moving vehicle and it's still frightening. " Help. " She gulps. " Please, someone help me. " " Lady, be quiet. " A voice shuts her. " No one is coming to save you. "The voice is not hostile, but she is scared to her bones because she doesn't know what's going on around her. The car finally comes to a stop and she is taken off the seat and into someone's shoulder like a bag of flour. " Please, don't kill me!" She cries. " I beg you. "" Quiet, please. " The annoyed voice repeats. " Does this have to do with my grandfather? I do not know about what they have done to you, please don't take it out on me. " If the people who took her heard this, they wouldn't answer. She is crying now because she feels like she is doomed, she
After twenty minutes, Jim is covered in blood, his shirt looks torn in many places and he looks like he has been in a train wreck. Duke has a new fear/respect for Mister Joseph because, for all he has known, Melody's father has been the quiet type. Now that he has seen the Beasty part of him come out and torment Jim, he is impressed. They need this kind of heartless man to handle the army enemies sometimes. Jim is breathing heavily as he spits out blood from his mouth. Mister Jimmy is sitting in a corner and he doesn't say anything since Mister Joseph has refused to listen to him. " Where is my daughter?" Mister Joseph asks. " I don't know. " He cries. " I swear on my life that I don't know. "" And you are going to lose your life because of that, Jim. " Mister Joseph threatens. " I intend to take out your teeth if you don't tell me where she is."" I was hit in the face with the butt of a gun because I chose to help her, you can ask the witnesses. "" Or it's just a poor scheme
Duke is leaning forward from behind Mister Jimmy as he reads through what he is showing him. " So what would you do in this case?" Mister Jimmy asks him. Duke looks at the data very carefully and then he thinks even more carefully. " If Mister A doesn't pay back, the whole business will be plunging into debt. " Duke points out. " Mister B should be given because he has paid back many times and has proven to be trustworthy. "Mister Jimmy nods. " But what if Mister A is a close family member?" He asks. " If you asked me, sir, I would say that business comes before family. " Duke shrugs. " That's what keeps the business running. "Mister Jimmy laughs and claps his hands at the same time." When everyone thought I was going crazy because I hired you as my bodyguard, I knew I wasn't wrong. " He chuckles. " Look, consultation comes with the package too. "Duke only smiles, he is still on his guard as he knows that no amount of praise can turn this man into his friend. " I am just doi
Melody puts the eggplant in her hand and feels it against her finger as if it's going to be the best way to decide if it's good enough. She puts it in her basket and then she turns around, Jim is behind her. He takes an eggplant and puts it in his basket as he smiles at her. It's a little bit weird because for five minutes straight he has been behind her and has picked the exact thing she has touched too. " You like cooking with eggplants?" She smiles back at him. " I haven't had it in my life, but I am sure that my wife is going to figure something out with it. " He shrugs. She grabs some strawberries and he does the exact same thing. If not for the fact that Duke spoke to him a few minutes ago, she would have concluded that he is a kind of stalker or something. Maybe she is just being wrong, maybe he just happens to have an identical shopping list, and maybe this isn't all weird at all. " It's nice of you to offer to drop me off at home. " She turns back to him. " Not many pe
Duke looks down at his fingers like he is the biggest criminal in the world right now. Eve keeps making him feel guilty about things and he hates her for it so much. " Why didn't you show up with the girl, Duke? She pressed again. " She just came back from a trip, Eve, give her a break. " He sighs. " She is tired and just setting her into the middle of this drama just like that can take a toll on her mental health. "Eve is looking at him like all that has come out of his mouth is absolute nonsense. " That's what you have to say?" She shakes her head. " You kept me waiting, Duke!"" She needed to rest. "" You should have picked up the damn phone and called me! " She yells. " I run a fucking mafia, you think I don't have things to do?"" Melody just needs rest. " He insists. " It's not like I backed out or anything. "" It sounds like you backed out to me because why else would you not come?" She scoffs. " You have seen her and then you've thrown the plans away. "" Her name is Me
