Cold Episode 5

Thursday came and everywhere was crowded, it was like an angel had come down from heaven to hell and everyone wanted to catch a glimpse of him.
At exactly 10 am, sir Jean Tommels convoy drove through the neighborhood surrounded by police escorts, he arrived at the town square amidst heavy security and walking side by side with him was Chief inspector Heckelman, a heavily set man with a white mustache.
Joseph and Lugo with his men had arrived 20 minutes earlier and had placed themselves in strategic positions. Joseph was disguised in a black face cap and black sunshade that made it hard for one to know it was him. He stood at a spot above the podium where the visitor was to address the people, from there he observed movements of people, an Ak 47 lying at his feet.

“So what was the plan again?” Lugo asked as he approached Joseph.
“Nothing much, from here, i am going to train my bullets into Heckelman’s leg, making sure i tear it off, then while everyone is running for his fuckin life, Ron and Brad will drag him out the back into the waiting car, with the pains in his leg, i dont think he will deny us any information”

“As simple as that?”

Joseph nodded.
“I hope it works”

“Me too or i am going to separate his legs from his body ”

” What the hell is Williams doing there ” Lugo asked as they spotted Williams take position behind Jean Tommels, clad in a black suit and dark sunshades.

” I don’t know, maybe he got himself a new Job” Joseph said with a thick accent of indifference in his voice.
“I hope he won’t interfere”

“I hope too”
Few minutes later, Jean climbed the podium and started his address. He was a good speaker, Joseph and Lugo didn’t think otherwise, he engaged everyone and enjoyed a high degree of attention from his audience. People clapped in between his speech. He had been speaking for about 10 minutes when Joseph pulled up his gun.

He tactically shifted back to get cover, pulling the gun to his eye level, he aimed at The chief’s Chest, bit his lips and reluctantly shifted his aim to his legs slowly. He cocked the gun and before he pulled the trigger, 3 simultaneous bangs rented the air and Jean Tommels fell. Pandemonium broke lose. In between the chaos, Joseph could make out his brother, Williams clutching a smoking . 45, he was saying something.

“You son of a bitchh, you are not welcomed here, our people,our families die here, you too, you come here, you die, this is our home, stay in your homes”. He shifted the gun to his left hand and pointed at the escaping crowd with his right finger as the spittle flew out of his mouth and the sweat soaked his body.

“Remember,this is for you, your children and your future generation, i did this for us, remember me and remember this, nobody will tell us how to run our homes”.

At that point, the police and security guards have regrouped and had surrounded him, with rage in his eyes, Joseph made out Chief Heckelman slowly coming to intercept Williams who stood facing the police. Aiming his gun at the Chief, tears streaming down his eyes at the prospect of losing another family, he grabbed the trigger and let out his fury through the gun, he riddled the chief with as many bullets as he could, by the time he stopped, the chief could not be recognized, head blasted open and brain dripping out, his body full of holes and spurting out blood, all this did not pacify Joseph when he saw his brother on the floor, dead.
“No, noo, noooooooo!!! ” he shouted as Lugo pulled him out of the hall.

The fuck did he do that for?” Joe shouted as they jumped out of the car right in front of their home.

“I don’t know, let’s go in first” lugo said leading him in by the hand.

Sitting in the parlor, Lugo poured a glass of vodka and handed it over to Joe who gulped it down in seconds and broke the glass on the wall. For minutes they sat there staring at empty space, Joseph’s eyes blazing like wild fire. They didn’t spend long before Stanley came in, holding a crying Maria. She left Him and ran to her brother, they hugged each other and Maria cried more, Joseph was tough, he was hurt alright but he couldn’t afford to break down, he needed to be strong for his family, for his cliques, they needed no weak leader.

“Where’s Jaycee, where’s August? ” Joseph asked looking around. Maria jumped up and went inside the house and reappeared with her phone, frantically dialing Jaycee’s cell.

Jaycee cell kept vibrating, he was in the bathroom taking his bath and Nancy was in the parlor with August, she was going through Jay’s phone.

“Hello” she said as she picked the call.
“Hello, Who is this? Is Jaycee there?” Maria asked anxiously.
“Yes, let me get him for you” nancy said and dropped the call.

“Jay, one of your girls need you on the phone ” she shouted. Jaycee came in already dressed. Nancy flipped the phone over to him.
” Fukk, that’s my sister” he said as he picked the phone. Before he could call her back, her call came back in.

“Hello sis”

“Jay where are you?”

“I’m with nancy, what’s up?”

“Come home immediately, get baby back here”
