Whisper Moon – Snuffed Out
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK
PENTHOUSE OF FLARAN ORDITH, NEW YORK DRUG LORD
MARCH 3rd, 2012
Flaran sits behind his desk, and Jaris his Right Hand Man is by his side.
The Henchmen that were supposed to follow Jonan, and had lost him, are standing in the room looking worried about their own health.
Flaran Stands and punches both of his fists against his desk…
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU LOST HIM!!” he yells.
“He’s–” one of them starts to say.
“He’s… What” Jaris interjects.
“Sneaky” the second thug replies.
“RING RING” Flaron’s Cell rings, and he answers it.
“Hello…” he answers.
ACROSS THE STREET AT A STARBUCKS COFFEE
Jonan is on his Cell talking to Flaron.
“I’m at Starbucks across the street” he says to Flaron.
BACK IN FLARON’S PENTHOUSE
Flaron looks speechless “Look out the window and see if you see Jonan Black at a Starbuck’s Table” he says to Jaris.
Jaris runs over to the window “Yup, he’s there”.
Flaron then motions to his Thugs to go and follow him.
“This is your last chance Flaron… Are you going to leave the Girl and her Daughter alone, or not” Jonan plainly states.
“I’m afraid we still haven’t recovered our “Product” from Her Man Anton…” replies Flaron.
“So that’s a no then…” Jonan replies.
“Why don’t you come over, and we’ll talk some more…” Flaron says to Jonan.
Jonan stands from his seat, and drops the Cell Phone into a tall cup of coffee.
Meanwhile Flaron’s two thugs enter the Starbucks, and sit down at a table right by the door.
Jonan sees this but doesn’t seemed surprised.
He then heads towards the exit, and the two Thugs stand as if they’re going to block his way out.
“Hello? HELLO!!??” Flaron is now yelling.
He then calls the Two Thugs at Starbucks “KILL THAT SON OF A BITCH!!!” he yells.
The two thugs start to reach for their guns as one of them hangs up his Cell from Flaron…
All seems to slow down…
Jonan smiles slightly, and before the Two Thugs know it, he’s in the air, and hits each of them in their chins with the back of his boot, knocking them both unconscious.
They fall to the ground with a “THUMP!!”
Meanwhile the power goes out in Flaron’s Penthouse, and all is dark.
“Ok… What’s up with the Power??” says Flaron, when suddenly Gun Shots can be heard from outside his Penthouse Door.
Followed by two thumps from the Guard Thugs outside his door being knocked unconscious.
Jaris draws his gun “Stay under the desk” he says to Flaron, who immediately goes under the desk.
Jaris leans up against the Entrance Door and just listens.
Suddenly the door is kicked open, hitting Jaris, and knocking him unconscious.
Flaron under the desk draws his gun, and suddenly stands up shooting…
“BANGG!! BANG!! BANG!!” unloading his gun into the darkness.
And that’s when a from suddenly comes through the air landing on, and disarming him.
In the darkness there is a knee against his neck.
It’s The Black Dragon “You really should have left the Girl alone…” he says.
“I–” Flaron starts to say, when in a single sweep of a short blade, The Black Dragon slits his throat.
By the time more Thugs come in, The Black Dragon is gone, and there’s a note pinned to Flaron’s chest, with the Knife.
One of the thugs leans over, pulls out the knife, and reads the note.
“TIME TO CLOSE DOWN SHOP… IF FLARON IS REPLACED, YOU ALL ARE GOING DOWN”
THE HAMPTONS, NEW YORK
JONAN’S OFFICE IN HIS HOME
Jonan is typing away on his laptop in total darkness, and deletes Flaron’s file.
Paul stands in the doorway.
“Is it over Boss…” Paul states more than asks.
Jonan closes his laptop…
“Lets hope so” Jonan replies.
Suddenly The Black Dragon is standing behind Paul.
“Show The Black Dragon to his Guest Room…” Jonan says, and turns to face them both.
Paul jumps, not hearing that The Black Dragon had snuck up behind him.
“So than it’s not over” Paul says.
Jonan walks over to where they are.
“Lets just say I’m going to be on Yellow Alert for a little while… You guys up for some Pizza and Cards?” Jonan asks as he walks by the two of them.
