From Chapter 15 JAMAICA DEAD
GAYLORD AND MARY
“Welcome aboard Mary”
Thank you but let’s just get the cards on the table and address the elephant on board.”
“What are you talking crazy for woman this is just thanks for a job well done. I hear he suffered horribly” This was a nonchalant act to fool the woman.
“Cut the BS Gaylord we both know you brought me here to feed me to the fish.”
“Lawd you are psychic aren’t you?”
“Yes and you’re still pitifully ugly.”
Gaylord laughed as he knew that was going to change really soon.
“So what’s it gonna be? A lethal cocktail, I’ll supply the hemlock.”
This woman was something else and he found that he kind of liked her spunk as well as being easy on the eyes.
I could just volunteer to jump ya know saves you the guilt of pushing but maybe you have no remorse for making me cast that horrible spell. I didn’t sleep at all last night I bet you slept just fine. You are morally depraved!”
“Stop, sit down and shut up. I want you to listen to what I have to say.”
Mary sat down and heard him out.
“I was told I had to kill you. I had fully intended to kill you.”
So what stopped you?”
I looked up what exactly the obeah of Eshu is and I was horrified that I had demanded that you cast that horrible spell. No wonder you didn’t want to have anything to do with it. Especially for Donovan who hadn’t committed a ghastly act.“
“So I am not gonna be chum for the whales?”
“Don’t look so disappointed.”
“What’s your boss going to do if he finds out you didn’t do the job?
I’m gonna make him think I did. Then you and I are going to hop a plane with new identification and go to Arizona. At the right time just before we leave I am going to anchor the boat in a deserted cove and blow her to smithereens and he will think I died too.”
“Brilliant idea. Why Arizona?”
“I am going for plastic surgery to correct the ugly mug.”
“Oh good it was starting to give me nightmares.”
