2nd Times The Charm

Post by Axton on Wed Jan 20, 2016 6:16 pm

Sascha Romanov did not typically take jobs when he was in the middle of a research paper due the next day, but his friend (read: ex-girlfriend whom he was still on good terms with) had assured him that it was urgent. Her daughter was getting mixed in with the wrong type of people, going out on benders, doing drugs, etc. As soon as he had actually approached her daughter, he had discovered she wasn't just doing drugs, but dealing them. Dealing them, as well as edging in he territory of more than a few big time drug dealers. Persuading her to quit dealing hadn't worked until one of those big time dealers had decided to kill her, and now they were pinned down behind a large couch in the lounge of a shitty club.

Sascha glanced at the sobbing girl beside him and knew it had been the right move to accept the job, even if it meant his research paper might be submitted a bit late.

"We can make a deal!" he called out, never quite shaking the twinge of a Russian accent. The shooting didn't stop. He wasn't sure he was talking his way out of this one.

"I'm not sure I'm in the mood for dealing," responded Shane in his thick British accent. He fired a warning shot into the wall. "Maybe you should just face me like a man, see what happens."

"Will you stop firing so I can face you like a man?" Sascha asked cautiously. Although, even if he stood up and got shot it would be about the same as if he didn't stand up and also got shot.

Sascha looked around for am impromptu weapon. A shred of a chair was laying not too far and he precariously tucked it into the back of his pants, covering it by his shirt. If he got splinters, he swore he was never talking to his ex ever again.

Sascha slowly stood up, hands in the air.

"Alright, let us take it easy now, yeah...?" Sascha said slowly.

Shane squinted; Sascha's face was so perfectly illuminated by the light streaming through the door, it couldn't possibly be anyone else.

"...Evgeni?" he asked. His voice was soft, but his pistol hand didn't waver. "You son of a bitch. What are you doing on the payroll of a drug kingpin?

Sascha visibly flinched upon hearing his old name. Evgeni Petrov. The name that had inspired fear in so many in Russia. Now, it was just a ghost that still haunted him. He had left a great deal of things behind; this had been one of them. He hadn't even recognized the other man at first. He had tried, fought, so hard to put it all behind him. And now there was a living piece of his past, standing in front of him, speaking that old, dead name. But, at least this piece of Evgeni's past was positive. Perhaps the only part that was.

"Drug kingpin?" Sascha rose a thick, slightly graying eyebrow. "You mean the sobbing girl I was convincing to quit the drug game?"

He gestured using his head and pieces of gaudily dyed blond hair fell into his face, contrasting with his dark black beard.

He slicked his long, curly, dark hair back out of his face.

"But if there's only a girl here, where is that bastard? Where is Sandoval?"

"I thought yout were Sandoval," Sascha replied slowly. "At first, anyway."

If both of them thought that the other was Sandoval, then that couldn't mean anything good.
