They entered the cave.Five men poured inside, blocking the exit. Their dark skin sucked the meagre light from the lamps, the whites of their eyes hell-bent and focused. The rifles in their hands were old but still capable of murder.
I glowered, drinking in their warrior thoughts and violence.

More workers poured through the door, launching themselves at the mountain of muscle, swatting his pistol, slamming his hands onto the floor.
He hollered like a beast attacked by insects, but in sheer numbers, he was overwhelmed.Another man entered, this one wearing the patch of manager on his dirty t-shirt. He was older, more Cuts age, and full of authority as he stood over Marquise. Without flinching, he hacked at his neck with a machete.

Remember what I said, Nila. The next few days are of mutual benefit. Treat it as such. Looking at Daniel, Cut rubbed a hand over his brow. Ill meet you there. Have a few errands to run on the way.Daniel nodded. Fine.
Youll sort everything out?Dont worry about us. Daniel smiled, squeezing my thigh with biting fingers. Well have a fantastic time on our own, wont we, Nila?
