A voice came over the water, get down on your knees and put your hands on your head.” The boat moved closer to Jorge with several men on deck with weapons trained on him. His call for help was answered by the U.S. Coast Guard. He dumped all the drugs and was several miles away from the body. All he had to do was convince the Americans he was out on this boat then the owner fell in and drown. The back of the boat had damage from there exit from the port, but that was in Mexico, and this boat was one of many on the ocean. The Coast Guard boarded and handcuffed him as they searched the boat. A lieutenant helped Jorge to his feet then sat him down and asked him in Spanish, “who are you and why are you on this boat.” Before he could answer a seaman came up from the hold with the P90 as well as a brick of heroin. The lieutenant said, “don’t say a word.”
Gary pulled his truck into the driveway. Zoey looked at the house then back to him and asked, “where are we?” Gary handed her a set of keys and said, “this is what I’ve been doing the last couple of weeks.” Zoey looked at the keys. Gary said, “I wanted us to have a place that was ours away from the others. I did the basics, but there is still a lot of work that we can do together and make it ours.” Zoey asked, “you bought a house and didn’t tell me?” Gary lost his smile, “I got the house in an auction for fourteen-thousand, and I put about that much into the work I did so far.” Zoey looked down at the keys then back to the house. Gary said, “when it’s just us we’re good, but when we’re around the others we become something else……. I just don’t know how to explain it.” Zoey asked, “just how long have you been planning this?” After a couple of long seconds, Gary said, “at first this was just going to be a quick flip, but then I had this dream, and I somehow knew we needed to have something that was just ours.” Zoey looked back to the house, and in the back, she saw a swing slowly being pushed by the wind. She said, “tell me about your dream.”
Gary smiled and looked down at his hands, “it started with the house. When I bought the house, it was windowless and dark. As I watched the windows went in, then stucco covered the block. The yard turned green, and the roof straightened out and was fixed. In the door, I saw you. In the back, I saw a child on the swing. A little boy going back and forth. He stopped and yelled daddy.” Zoey looked at her stomach. She turned to Gary then back to the house. She could see the stucco and a large low roof. She could also see a large red door. She asked him, “boy, what if it was a girl?"
Gary cocked his head to the left then asked, “what?” Zoey took his hand and put it on her stomach and said, “there’s something I need to tell you, but I don’t want you to think this was a trap or something.” Gary looked at his hand on her then he asked, “are you hungry or I don’t know…… what?” Zoey let go of his hand and said, “no dumbass I’m pregnant.” Gary just stared at her. Zoey stared into his eyes and asked, “did you hear me, I’m pregnant…… with your child…… come on say something……. speak goddammit.” Gary timidly said, “let’s go into the house and see what room would make a good nursery.” Zoey angrily asked, “what do you think about what I just said?” Gary smiled and said, “there are so many things running through my mind that I don’t know where to start, but the biggest thing right now is just one word……...Daddy.”
Cathy turned off the television and asked, “should we really be spying on them?” Wendy turned the television back on and said, “how can we not? I mean we have more than just a little part in all this, and I just want to see what happens next.” Cathy took back the remote and changed the view back to the motel where the dealer they were following was staying. Parked nearby the motel was one of the dark gray sedans. Cathy said, “we have bigger problems then the Zoey Gary drama.” Gina leaned out of her chair and said, “this is boring, go back to Zoey and Gary.” Cathy turned to Gina and asked, “how would you feel if we broadcasted you and Jack together without your knowledge?” Gina smiled and said, “if you don’t want that then I would suggest staying out of the files on the server labeled GJB.” Cathy turned to Wendy and said, “what do you say, later on, tonight?” Wendy closed her Laptop and said, “I already made a copy so yeah later tonight.” Cathy switched back to the motel view just in time to see a man in a dark suit putting their camera in a bag with the word “evidence” spelled out in red. Wendy turned on her laptop again and started a program that would wipe all the information off the other cameras. Gina asked, “what does this mean?”
