● ● ● ● ● ●

Asha didn’t think she’d ever been more shook. She placed her cellphone on the table and then her purse. She began to remove the items from it, and he told her, “Just turn it upside down and dump it out.”

She had no choice but to comply.

The man reached for his electronic device. He pressed a button on the side, and a small, green light came on. He lifted the wand and slowly passed it over her phone and the contents of her purse. Nothing happened. He made another pass and got the same results. Asha realized he was looking for a wiretap. Her eyes widened as she looked up at him. Outside of a movie, she had never seen anything like this. Who the hell was this man?

He stepped around the table and used the wand to sweep her whole body at the same, mind numbing pace. His closeness made her heart pound even harder. After scanning her front, he told her, “Turn around,” and began to scan her back, from head to toe. Finally satisfied, he took a step back and said, “Alright, you can turn back around.”

Asha tried to hide her fear as she turned his way again. “Everything cool?” she asked. She knew he hadn’t found anything, but she was desperate for his approval.

He placed the wand on the table and nodded. “You can put your stuff back in your purse.”

Asha didn’t think he’d give her an answer, but as she gathered her things, she asked, “Can you tell me why the music up so loud?”

He told her, “Just because you ain’t bugged don’t mean you ain’t got the laws parked around the corner in a surveillance van.”

Once again, Asha had never seen a surveillance van outside of TV. She knew they had high-tech listening devices that could pick up a conversation from blocks away. The fact that this man had a tactic to thwart this let her know that he was the real deal; a professional killer, and he was looking out for her safety as much as he was looking out for himself.

At that moment, she knew she was hiring the right man for the job.
