CHAPTER 2 – Prison POV
She�kept tapping so loudly that it drew�everyone�s attention to her.
They gave her a look, and she stopped.
�That�s an amateur�s job,� Ginger chuckled.
�What did you say?� The lady in the waiting area asked.
�If you want to catch a high-profile murderer, you play their game.� �You use their enemies, not their prey.�
�Wha��� The lady was about to say something when she was interrupted.
�Smh,� she said, blowing a raspberry. �You journalists are always looking for stories, not justice.� Ginger muttered and walked out before the lady could speak.
�How did she know you are a journalist?� The investigator on the other end of the earbud asked.
The lady shrugged, as though the investigator could see her.
There was a thud from the door at the entrance, and guards ran after Ginger because she slammed the door behind her.
�You love solitary, don�t you?� She could hear them yelling at Ginger.
She stuck her tongue at them and went into her cell.
�Who was that?� The voice at the other end of the speaker asked the lady in the visiting room.
She turned to inmate 777. �The investigator wants to know who the lady from earlier was.�
�Oh, that was Ginger.� �She�s like the messiah in here.� Inmate 777 answered.
�Did you get that?� She asked the investigator.
�He�s asking what her story is.�
�No one knows, just that she�s always in trouble and spends her time waiting here every visiting day since I arrived 5 months ago.�
�Has anyone ever come to visit?� The journalist asked.
�No, I heard from the old folks that she�s been here for 11 years and that the day she arrived, she went dark.�
There was a screeching sound, and the car pulled off the road and into the bush.
�Who took the shots?�
The older man asked his three friends. He looked from one person to the other.
�Costa.� He finally settled on a name.
�Who cares?� �It�s done already.�
�Jewel was there.� The guy with the scar on his face answered.
�So?� Costa queried.
�You forgot our instructions were to get rid of the other lady, not Jewel.�
�I didn�t forget the instructions, but I got that shot.� Isaiah jumped into the conversation.
�Shut it, Isaiah!� Their boss thundered. �We were hired to do a simple job.�
�It was impossible to get rid of the target without Jewel ending up in the crossfire.� Costa jumped to Isaiah�s defense.
�So, you let him fire anyway.�
He gave them a scornful look.
Everyone had a stupid look on their face.
�That�s it? �You are all benched till I make this right.�
They all nodded, then his phone rang.
He stared at the phone for a long time before answering on the third ring.
�Is it done?�
The voice on the other end of the line inquired.
�No, we run into a few problems.�
�Problems that can�t be fixed?�
�It�s impossible because Jewel happened.�
�Jewel?� The caller sounded surprised.
�Yes, she was with her.�
�You guys hold on for now.� I will call on your services again.
The call dropped before they could demand their fee.
Adam, their boss, gave them a knock and instructed them to drive off.
