Santa Monica, California
The 10 Freeway Heading North
February 28th, 2012
Jonan, Allissa and Marin are sitting in the back of a Black Range Rover heading North on The Santa Monica 10 Freeway.
Paul is driving.
Marin is sleeping on Allissa’s lap.
“Sooo… Where was it we’re heading again?” asks Allissa.
“An Underground Home in the Canyons near Malibu Beach…” Jonan calmy replies as he clicks away on his iPad.
“Anddd… You’re selling that huge house in the Hamptons?”she questions.
“Eh… I only spent a couple months there a year anyway… And if I didn’t, your Boyfriend’s Gangster Friends would have burned it to the ground by now… But that rather Large Realty Sign on the lawn put a stop to that…” explains Jonan.
Jonan then looks directly at Allissa “You know your Boyfriend Anton was working for some pretty Powerful, Scary Guys…” he conveys.
“Your Average Everyday Drug Lord doesn’t generally have a Fleet of Black Rolls-Royce” he finishes.
“Yeah… Well… I had no idea how deep he was involved, or just how Bad and Scary his Bosses were” Allissa responds, trying her best to convince Jonan.
“I suspect Anton didn’t realize what he was messing with either, or he wouldn’t have taken “Merchandise” from them, and thus Crossing them… No… That wouldn’t have been too wise…” Jonan expresses to Allissa.
“We’ll be there soon Boss” Paul calls back to Jonan.
“Right…” replies Jonan
Suddenly Jonan pulls out a black bandana from his suits inside pocket and holds it up to Allissa.
“Mind if I blindfold you for a few minutes?” he questions.
“Uhhh… No??” Allissa responds.
“Thank you” Jonan replies, and then wraps the bandana around her eyes.
17 Minutes Later
In An Underground Home
Jonan takes off her bandana, and they appear to be in an underground three car garage.
In addition to the Range Rover they arrived in, there’s a Black Porsche, and a Black Mercedes.
“Nice rides” Allissa says.
“Oh… They’re not mine” Jonan replies as he picks up Marin, and carries her inside the house.
Paul then walks up and grabs her bags “They’re mine… So is this house actually” he explains as he carries the bags in the house.
Inside the house is somewhere around 4,000 square feet, with six bedrooms.
The inside of the home is mostly black, with accents of silver.
Paul takes Allissa’s bags into the same room that Jonan has laid Marin in.
Meanwhile Allissa wonders into the Living Room, and Jonan quickly joins her.
Jonan picks up a remote and an image of a beach with ocean waves appears on the furthest wall, the casted image is some 50 Feet Wide, by 12 Feet Tall.
“Pual has Camera’s on top of the Mountain above us, they’re focused in the direction of the beach, which isn’t really all that far away… The image is then magnified, and wola” Jona explains to Allissa who doesn’t seem all that thrilled.
“I gotta tell you Jonan, I really don’t like being underground… It’s kinda… Well… Creepy” she explains.
Paul then walks into the room “I’m goina make some sandwiches, whatcha want to drink?” he asks.
“Uhh… Vodka Tonic if yah got it” responds Allissa.
Paul then looks over at Jonan “Milk is fine” Jonan replies, which causes Allissa to cast a gaze in his direction.
“Man Jonan, you haven’t changed a bit” she says to Jonan.
“Right O” replies Paul, who steps into the kitchen and starts to make their food.
Meanwhile Jonan and Allissa each sit on one of the three black leather couches.
“You have full custody of Marin, right?” Jonan suddenly asks.
“Yeahhh… Why?” she asks.
“Eh, so there’s no problem with you taking her out of the State like this” Jonan replies.
With this, Paul enters the room and hands each of them their drinks “There yah go… Your sandwiches are comen right up” he then heads back to the kitchen.
“You said “I’ll” be safe here… Aren’t you staying?” she asks Jonan, and then takes a drink of the Vodka “Oh yeah, that hits the spot” she exclaims.
“I’m going back to New York” Jonan replies.
“What?? Jonan, I can’t have you risking your life over me, you’ve already done too much, if anything ever happened to you–” she says to Jonan in almost desperation, but he cuts her off.
“Nothing’s going to happen to me Allissa… I just need to take care of some business out there, so we can get the two of you back home ASAP, where you belong” Jonan explains.
Jonan then stands as Paul enters the room with their sandwiches, Paul hands each of them their sandwiches, grabs Jonan’s shoulder and sits him back down.
“You can eat your sandwich before you go off and save this little ladies world boss” with this Jonan and Allissa both laugh, and they eat.
