"Hey, sis." I say after picking up.
"No, he's quiet. Why do you ask?"
"Well, I dug up something about his associates. I'm driving to the location now."
"What?! Deb, I told you to stay out of this!"
"I can't sit around and do nothing, okay? That's not me. And besides, I can take care of myself. I don't need you to protect me."
She hangs up. And that's where she's wrong. She has no idea what she is getting herself into. These people are among the most dangerous I have faced, and that is saying something. I try to focus, get my head together and come up with a plan.
When I look next to me I see Harry giving me the 'I told you so' face. I ignore it and look outside, seeing Alvarez getting in his car. What do I do? Go after him or get to Deb?
Maybe Deb is right, maybe I shouldn't worry about her too much. She is a cop, and a good one. I'm sure she'll be fine. I make a left and go after Alvarez. I take out my phone and text Deb.
"Be careful, okay?" I throw my phone on the passenger seat and stay on Alvarez.
After about 20 minutes he pulls over. I do the same, look around, and to my surprise see Debra sitting in her car nearby. I feel relief. I wait for Alvarez to walk away and I get out and walk toward Deb. I get in the passenger side.
"The fuck are you doing here? I told you I'd be fine."
"Alvarez apparently has a meeting with his buddies. He led me right to this place," I say with a frown.
"Oh.. Okay. What do you think is going on inside?" She says as she looks to the building.
"Probably nothing good. We could check it out."
Her eyes open wide with surprise. "We?"
I stumble over words before I finally manage a simple, "Yes."
She takes out the gun from her glove compartment and loads it. "Okay, let's fucking do this."
We both step out.
To be continued.
