Tina says nothing, she plays with the burning wood in the fireplace, Sam’s appearance is entirely within reach of her sight.
“She should have,” Tina says silently. “Bette Porter must notice this is not school anymore, any wrong decision can cause harm. Good thing is that I haven’t misestimated her, she did prove her value. Apparently, though being tormented by the FBI, she still maintains her intelligence…”
Sam nods. “Indeed.”
“And the others?”
“All four of them are clean, Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul, and Beijing police forces showed no big movement, the locations they locked have no trace of intrusion, according to the Chinese, no phone signal uttered when the deal was making, we can exclude their suspicions.”
Tina nods, she lights up a cigarette and sucks the full mouth of smoke, she comfortably spits it out. The chemical gas and the high temperature of the hot tea make her discomfort temporarily release.
“FBI will be so pissed.” Sam says while making a new pot of tea.
“Sure, they will.”
“He’s none of our issues now, Sebastian Cooper has already conveyed his greeting to them, the person like Tom Mater usually find their way to the guillotine, anyone who has a brain knows whoever mess out with the Triad will get hurt. But he deserves it, after all, who told him to provoke the drug master of China?”
Tina picks up the king of club on the table, says wistfully.
”If he and Jodie weren’t so eagerly planning to replace me, he wouldn’t have to be the first.”
With her fingers twisting deftly, the card wanders around in her hand as if it was dancing.
Sam looks silently at Tina, she slightly frowns.
“Thanks to “L”, giving us the chance to find out who these people are and the true identity of Bette Porter, or the plan won’t go so smoothly.” Sam takes up a piece of drawing on the desk. “Those five people you assigned to make the deal, including Bette, they are the lists of people ”L” provided to us, all of them once had contact with the police, if they really are the undercover, they will send the operation signal to the police…”
Tina only looks at the drawing, without saying a word.
“What if they did send it? Wouldn’t the squad team break into our property?” Sam asks, she carefully puts the drawing in a folder.
“They will find nothing but an empty warehouse. In the end, they will find out they’re just wasting their time.” Tina says emotionlessly.
“But what if the police did trace that phone signal and quickly discover they were actually on a boat, aren’t we busted?”
”No one except the Chinese and tour pilot knew they are actually in Shanghai. Furthermore, what can the police do it’s just a typical gangster meeting? No money, no product, only some paper with the business number, they cannot do anything even if they really find the boat.”
Tina stands up, slowly walks to the fireplace.
”Maybe the FBI or local police will charge them as illegally carrying heavy weapons, but all the guns are registered under China government, with no proof of them firing it, they have no right to arrest them.
”But I thought the goods…”
“The half of the products we promised were already safely transacted in Hong Kong, Triad’s Headquarters.” Tina smiles. “The more dangerous the place is, the safer the place is, police never learn that.”
Her clever fingers playing with the card, with a blink of an eye, the card disappear in her hand and reappear in somewhere else, the king of club helplessly wraps around her delicate fingers.
“So…what now?” Sam asks.
“Building a new relationship with the Gang in China, create a new trading network, rebuilt the American cocaine Multinational market, we will let those Southeast Asia countries understand who the real Cocaine Master is.”
Tina coldly says, right before she throws the card in the fireplace, a sudden phone ring interrupts her thought, Tina furrows her eyebrows and looks at her watch, Bette and rest of others should be getting the money right now, they shouldn’t have time to make any calls.
Sam immediately picks up, it’s Shane.
“Ma’am, we have a situation.”
