( ajax neuville ) twenty-three // male( dasha bordeau ) twenty-two // female
There was no real reason that the two people in the back of limousine had to be together. Er, had to be in the vicinity of one another. Except there was: a bet. A frivolous, supposed friendly bet. By the looks of the two, though, you wouldn't think that this was the case. They were at war; be it wits or backbone, there was some sort of competition going. For Dasha, it was not backing down to the cousin she wished she never had. For Ajax, it was proving that he smarter than the apparent prodigy that sat across from him.Features set in grim determination, a heavy silence swelled between them. They were only going to discuss terms of agreement for this said bet; why not make it official? Why not make it that much more concrete? Then, no one would be able to back out. Neither of the two would be able to walk away from this before the completion of the bet if they signed the agreement. Dignity would be either lost or maintained, all with the simple swipe of a pen.But it was more than that. It was the bet. The papers to officiate it were stuck in the passenger side of the limo, out of their lest one or the other attempted to tamper with the signed documents. Now, they had only to deliver it to a third party. But, Ajax didn't think he could sit in the backseat with Dasha any longer. He tapped on the glass behind him, gaze never leaving the black leather he'd trained it on."Pull over; I'm getting out," he ordered, sliding over to the door.He felt the car come to a stop and the watchful look of Dasha as he got out. Buttoning his suit jacket, he squinted as he stepped into the light. Fresh air, finally. He breathed in, shut the door and headed for home.
Jade refrained from rolling her eyes as she stood in front of her father giving one of his many speeches to her. She was twenty-one years old and yet she still get lectured on when it comes to the family business. Its not enough that she graduated top of both her classes because she double majored in business and law as well as becoming valedictorian. With her dad, nothing she did was enough. Jade’s didn’t even have any friends or a social life that didn’t involve going to business meetings. She was exhausted and has had enough, so she began walking away. She didn’t even consciously realize it, until she heard her dad’s voice call out.“Where do you think you are going?” He said. But she didn’t even bother to respond. She wanted to be breath and do something that was actually fun without any supervision which included her bodyguard. She walked outside to the cold air, “Gary, can you bring my dad’s benz around, the red one please?”She told him, the minute he was out of view, she hopped in a taxi and was gone.——Gabriel packed up all of his things into a box from the stake out, he had set up. He had been on the job for two months before he was able to get enough evidence against the kingpin of an underground casino. The job was pretty boring, and more of desk clerk job. Gabriel really needed to get a case that actually put him in the field. He was a cop, not a paper pusher. Even though he knew in some part it was his fault that he was here. If he hadn’t pissed off the lead detective on vice, he probably wouldn’t be in this mess. “Yo grunt, captain wants to you see you once your done here.” One of the uniforms told him. “Alright, thanks.” Gabriel replied, getting the rest of his things quickly. The captain has never called him into his office. This was either really bad news or good news. The minute he entered the station, he headed straight for the captain’s office. He was nervous but wasn’t going to show it.“Take a seat, Officer Torres."
