Get in the vehicle or my brother dies.
This is my ultimatum issued by Kane’s drug lord uncle, Miguel. He and
about ten of his men have cornered us during our talk in the alleyway behind
the building where my father is hosting a huge election event. I’ll worry
about where the security is that should have blocked off the alleyway in the
first place later.
Right now, Miguel and his threat are my focus.
And considering who Miguel is, and the carnage I know him to be capable
of ordering, most people would assume me to be rattled. But I’m not like
most people. Miguel is dangerous, of that I have no doubt, but Miguel’s men
hate him, love Kane, and fear a badge, which both myself and my brother
possess. He also isn’t here to kill us, or we’d be dead.
May the odds be in my favor?
They are in my favor, but my dumbass brother doesn’t seem to understand
“Lilah,” he warns yet again. This is time two. “Do not get in that vehicle,”
he adds, referencing the huge, black SUV Miguel exited a minute ago.
Let’s Talk, Lilah, he’d said. Get in.
Fuck you very much, is my answer to that, but I don’t say the words, and
with good reason. I’ve heard a lot about Miguel. He needs visual aids, and I
have a few in mind.
On the other hand, the very fact that my brother thinks I’m stupid enough
to get in a vehicle with Miguel tells me he’s feeling pretty stupid himself.
Maybe he had a drink inside. Maybe he was just born that way.
I glance in his direction, intentionally taking my eyes off Miguel, letting
Miguel know he worries me about as much as a gnat. Considering Kane
believes him to be emotional and brutal, that’s not a hundred percent true, but
I’m an advocate of playing the hand you’ve been given and doing so like you
have a king and an ace, not a couple of twos.
“He’s a drug lord, Andrew,” I say. “You’re the chief of police and the son
of the future governor. He’d much rather own you than shoot you.” Now, and
only now, I offer Miguel a bored stare. “Isn’t that right, Miguel?”
Miguel’s eyes narrow sharply, a tic forming in his jaw. “I might not kill
him,” he says, not even bothering to deny I’m accurate. “But I could make
him bleed.” He shifts his weapon to Andrew. “Should I demonstrate?”
To Andrew’s credit—maybe he is worthy of the title “my brother” after all
—he doesn’t so much as flinch. Miguel narrows his dark eyes on me.
tall, good-looking man, with a swipe of gray in his dark hair. He favors Kane
in looks, but that’s where the resemblance stops. One is a willing crime lord,
brutal in all he does. The other, the founder of an oil company, who was born
to a father who once ran the cartel, who most believe should now reign as
kingpin. Kane might as well be kingpin for the frequency he is pulled into the
cartel to save the lives Miguel butchers with his selfish actions.
