“I would like you to take me a couple of packages through customs.”

“Are you bloody mad; I’m already a wanted man and you want me to risk going to jail for ten years for peddling drugs; forget it man.”

This is fool proof Michael believe me, we place the Marijuana inside cigarette boxes at the same weight as a normal carton they are wrapped the same paper the real cigarettes are placed on the top so if you are stopped and they open up a carton they will assume that you are only bringing cigarettes. It’s so easy mate honestly.”

“I don’t know Ronnie; it is still a risk.

What if I said we will pay you ten grand so that you and your friend can carry it through for me?

“If you are paying me ten grand how much is the stuff worth on the street.

“It is worth about one hundred grand once the pure coke is cut.”

“You are only going to pay us ten grand whilst you make ninety; no thanks.”

“You only paid me two grand when I did the favour for you and you made considerably more than I did.

“Yes but you were walking on board that ship with a bag full of women’s underwear; not eight pounds of coke.”

“This has been done many times Michael; I told you it is fool proof.

“Why don’t you ask someone else?”

“Because you owe me.”

“I’m going to have to think about this Ronnie.”

“When do you leave?

“We leave on Friday evening and get back at one in the morning.”

That is perfect, you know why? The customs do not bother to even check late arrivals.”

“You would just walk out of there with your cases.”

“Alright I will do it but only this once and then we are done; I owe you nothing.”

“Good man; I will arrange the packages to be dropped off on Thursday evening.”

I will give you an address to deliver the packages to; then the job is done.

“Can someone not pick us up from the airport?

“Alright; I will arrange that.”

“Now those girls you were entertaining; I will send two over for your friend too. It will cost you nothing; they are a gift to you. “Whatever your persuasion, these girls will cater for but no violence understood; I do not get my girls beaten up because if they do; they cannot work until the injuries heal and that means I lose money.”

Michael and Johnny left after Michael had given him the address.

“I do not like this Michael said Johnny once they got into the taxi.”

“What can I do Johnny, he has back up; there’s only us here.”

“The two men had only been in the hotel fifteen minutes when there was a knock at the door. Michael asked Johnny to open it whilst he stood behind it with a wine bottle.

It was the four girls.

Anyone for wine said Michael as he emerged from behind the door.
