2.2 One of them: Unstable Elements
Daniel and Angelica followed the burly bouncer to the back of the smoke filled club. They watched as drunken club-goers danced wildly underneath the pulsating strobe lights in the dimly lit club. They danced to Hip-Hop music played so loudly you could not hear yourself think. Angelica and Daniel pushed past scantly dressed women and overly zealous men until they reached a roped off area which looked like the VIP.
There behind a red velvet rope sat Kimura and his men on a snow white leather couch surrounded by beautiful women and glass tables. Kimura was drinking a dark colored alcoholic beverage and smoking a cigar while a sexy brunette whispered in his ear. As soon as Kimura saw Angelica he motioned for the woman to move. Kimura’s eyes lit up when he saw Angelica he smiled at her and waved them over. The brunette looked at Angelica and rolled her eyes as she got up and moved to the other side of the VIP area. Angelica smiled back and walked over to Kimura as Daniel followed closely behind her. As Angelica approached Kimura stood up like the gentleman everyone knew him as and kissed her hand. "Welcome" Kimura said. "Please, sit down" he said as he shook Daniel’s hand. "Get them a drink" he ordered one of his men. "What do you two drink?" He asked while gazing into Angelica’s eyes. "I’ll take a vodka and tonic" Angelica answered. "Hennessy and coke" Daniel replied. The man waved down a waitress and gave her their order.
Daniel was beginning to feel uncomfortable. The way Kimura looked at Angelica made him nervous. Kimura was smitten with her, he had not taken his eyes off her since they got there. Angelica must have sensed Daniel’s apprehension because she grabbed his hand and held it tight. When Kimura saw her take his hand it was like the air was let out of him and he was snapped back into reality. Kimura turned up his glass and gulped down what was left. Then he motioned for the waitress to bring him another.
"So I like you two" Kimura said. "I would like you two to start work right away" he said. "Is tomorrow good?" He asked. "Yeah" Angelica answered. "Good" he said as the waitress brought over his drink. "Okay, tonight I show you how the boss parties" he said with a grin as he took a long sip of his drink then sat it on the glass table. "Chanel, may I have this dance?" Kimura asked. Angelica quickly looked over at Daniel. "That is if its okay with Carter" he added. "Its cool" Daniel said as he forced a smiled. Daniel watched as Kimura led Angelica to the dance floor. This is not cool Daniel thought. A notorious murder and crime boss was enthralled with his girlfriend and he could not break character. No matter how bad he wanted to say hell no you can not dance with my real girlfriend and fake wife he could not. Daniel was forced to sit watch as Kimura shameless flirted with Angelica all night.
