Excerpt: Upstairs, Li Chan was finally face-to-face with the man she had just been with hours ago as Kimmie. Tiahmo had sweat pouring profusely off his forehead and nose. The top of his shirt was soaking wet and the entire room reeked of loud marijuana.
“You’re one crazy bitch, Kimmie. You expect me to believe you really work for Key and you here with all these damn Feds?” he asked.
“I know, I know, Tiahmo. This shit seems so far-fetched at times, I can’t believe what I’ve gotten myself into,” Li said, thinking about her next words very carefully. She knew Tiahmo was very streetwise and always ready to murder. She had to come down to his level of communication and at the same time not insult his hood-intelligence.
“I’m in love with your boy Key. Yes, I was supposed to take him down when I was undercover. That was the job, Tiahmo, but I fell in love with him!” Li exclaimed, sounding as sincere as possible.
“Bullshit, bitch! You’re trained to do that shit. I should have known when I looked into them little slanted eyes you weren’t no real hoe,” Tiahmo said, hitting the loud blunt.
“Seriously, Tiahmo, you got to peep game here,” Li said, getting to use the street lingo she’d picked up on. “How-in-the-fuck do you think you and your crew got to the White brothers so easily? Yeah, I provided that information, and let’s get real, baby boy, you knew that motherfucker in the park today was a Fed because you were briefed by my dude and Tee on the deal. But what you didn’t know was he was my partner, Tiahmo. He was double-crossing me when he found out I was, let me see, as he called it, straddling the fence, but I wasn’t straddling at all. I’m in love with Keyshawn. Do you think if I wasn’t who Keyshawn said I was, I would have allowed you to commit the murder of a federal agent? I stand to get the chair myself if this comes out.”
Tiahmo laughed hysterically at what he was hearing. Agent Li didn’t know why he was laughing and figured she would do one last thing. She removed her bulletproof vest and raised her shirt up, exposing the bulge growing in her stomach.
“Please blow that smoke somewhere else. I don’t think Key would approve of you polluting his son lungs,” she said, showing she was indeed pregnant.
“Get the fuck outta here! I’ll be a monkey’s uncle,” Tiahmo said, looking at the proof of life in front of him.
“Damn, bitch, you got yourself in deep! I guess the pimping is really real. So, if all this is all that, what’s next, bitch? ’Cause I’m not going to jail,” Tiahmo replied, honoring her request and thumbing out the blunt.
“Well, yes, Tiahmo, you are going to jail, but if you keep your mouth closed, the only time you will be doing is your revocation time. They can’t pin the murder on you from the testimony of two kids who were a hundred feet away in the dark. The most incriminating evidence they have is the van, which agents have already been through and didn’t find any blood or traces that
Daley’s body had been inside,” she said, lying. She knew her teammates had found three specks of blood matching Daley’s blood almost an hour ago.
Tiahmo had taken the van to a hand car wash, so he figured it was possible she was telling him the truth.
“You know I got mad love for my niggas and I respect their pimping, bitch, so I’m going to take your word on this one here, Ms. Kimmie,” Tiahmo said laughing, feeling a little better now.
He was thinking everything she said had to be real. How could she not be dirty when she was there when the kill-shot was delivered to a federal agent? Besides, if she was on some bullshit, he would offer her up to her own people. That information alone would set him free. He wasn’t a dummy by far and that would be his trump card if she was bullshitting him around. He smiled, thinking, ‘If the bitch isn’t on the side of the streets, she will become my ace in the hole.’
“So what we gotta do?” he asked.
“Put down that heater. I’m going to cuff you and walk you out of here just like on television.”
“Damn, I never thought I would be surrendering to a bitch. Fuck it! Let’s do this so I can be back out here as soon as possible,” Tiahmo said, finally trusting her. Tiahmo dropped his weapon and turned around so Agent Li could cuff him.
She acted as quickly as possible, removing the Glock from her back waistband.
“Come on, Kimmie, before I change my mind and kill every muthafucka out there, including you,” he said.
“I don’t think we have to worry about that one, partner,” she replied.
Tiahmo sensed something in her tone, and when he turned back to face her, she delivered the first shot to his chest, doubling him over. The first bullet had already killed Tiahmo, but Li Chan walked up to him and shot him twice in the leg. Bending down, she picked up his semi-automatic weapon using his dead fingers, firing rounds at the entrance of the bedroom door. Li made it look like he’d taken shots at her and left her no choice but to return fire.
Agent Li Chan picked up her two-way and yelled, “SUSPECT’S DOWN! HE’S BEEN HIT! NEED BACKUP!”
Her whole team rushed the house with caution. When they found her, she was standing next to Tiahmo’s dead body, her gun still smoking and drawn down on the corpse.
Bender was the last one inside. He looked at Li Chan, and all he said to her was, “I’m going to need your full report by morning.”
