Chapter 13

(We finally arrived in Rome Italy. This city is ridiculously beautiful. I'll be staying with Anthony until I can afford my own place. He insisted. He took me to a restaurant called "La Matriciana" the dining room is elegant in an old fashioned way.) 


Anthony : I'll have the usual. Spaghetti alla carbonara.per favore. 


(Anthony said to the waiter. Why is he speaking Italian now?) 


Waiter : Qualunque altra cosa? 


Anthony : No grazie. voi Lunga? 


Kwalunga : I don't understand a thing here Anthony. 


(He laughed) 


Anthony : Shit! I'm so sorry man. That was Italian. Don't worry. you will learn. 


Kwalunga : Thanks but no thanks. I will stick to English. 


(Again he laughed) 


(The waiter came back and served us with a "Spaghetti alla carbonara" well it looked like a normal spaghetti to me and the taste wasn't that bad.) 


Anthony : We need to get going. You need some rest. 


Kwalunga : Are you sure that I'm not going to take your space. 


Anthony : Of course not. I want you to stay with me. As soon as you are comfortable enough with the city then you can move out. 


Kwalunga : Ok. Thank you Anthony. 


Anthony : It's really nothing man. 



(6 MONTHS LATER) 


(I'm used to the city and Anthony has been a great friend and an amazing mentor. I started with small investigations and I must say I was made for this.) 


(Today I'll be doing real work and I'm nervous but Excited. Zinzi calls me every day but she's been scarce lately and she is not taking my calls. I'm worried but maybe she is busy with something more important.) 


Thomas : Now that you are officially a member of True Red this is your office. 


Kwalunga : Am I going to be stuck in the office most days? 


(He laughed) 


Thomas : No. You will be going out like most of us but you do need the office. 


Kwalunga : Yeah sure. 


(I love my office. It's small but fancy) 


(Anthony Tina and Godfrey stepped in. Tina is carrying a file.) 


Tina : This is the case. Christina McDelufa was reported missing with other 3 girls.I suspect human trafficking. (She said opening the file) 


Godfrey : Yep me too. Mrs McDelufa said her daughter went to celebrate her 18th birthday at Sundowners Club a month ago and she never came back home. 


Kwalunga : Ok Ok


Tina : Jah. So I believe that something happened at that club. 


Anthony : Today is the Poker game night and most people are going to be there including well known people. 


Thomas : So what's the plan? 


Godfrey : We are going there like anybody else but we are going there to do our job and see if we can find something useful. 


Thomas : I like that. 


Tina : Yeah 


Kwalunga : So for how long are we going to be there?


Godfrey : As soon as everybody leaves we are also going to leave. 


Kwalunga : And what if they start their mission after everybody left? 


(Godfrey sighed) 


Tina : What's your plan Lunga? 


Kwalunga : We need to find something that will keep us there as long as possible. 


Thomas : Lunga is right. If our target is going to be part of the poker game night he will be more careful and he will be watching every move so if everyone else leaves the club and we stay behind he will be suspicious. 


Kwalunga : If it's a "he" 


Tina : I doubt it's a "She" 


Kwalunga : Lady and Gentlemen I said let's go there as Waiters. In that way we will have all the time we need to track every move of that bastard. 


(Thomas clapped 3 times) 


Thomas : You are a genius Lunga. 


Godfrey : I judged you too soon Lunga. 


(Godfrey smiled) 


Anthony : Can I get my award now? This is all my brilliant mentorship (He laughed) 


Tina: You did well Anthony. 


Anthony : Grazie Signora (He smiled) 


(Not Anthony with his Italian language.But I think that means Thank you or something. I don't care.) 


Thomas : Tina are you still friends with that lady from Sundowners? 


Tina : Not as closed as we used to be but we talk.


Thomas : Good. Tell her we are coming. Offer her money to keep her mouth shut. 


Tina : On it. 


Godfrey : Get us the uniforms Godfrey. 


Tina : Black and White G (She walked out) 


Thomas : Only Anthony
