After collecting their belongings from the brothel, Michael and Nikita located a petrol station and topped up the car with gas. As Michael manoeuvered the Mercedes onto the E-52 highway, leading south from Lisbon, Nikita popped a cd into the car stereo. The jazz piano sounds of Diana Krall filtered through the speakers. Michael looked over at Nikita and smiled.

“Where did you find that cd?”

“I traded one of the girls at the brothel for a Coldplay cd.”


Nikita snickered, “One of these days Michael, I’ll get you tuned into popular music.”

“Hummm...yes, that sounds ....interesting.”

As they drove along the highway, Nikita watched the passing scenery. The landscape was becoming drier and the sun shone brightly; the outside air temperature was still cool.

“So....what do you think this Dalton guy’s villa will be like...you haven’t really told me much about him Michael.”

“Like I said, he did work in the intelligence business...a few bad missions soured him and he decided to get out and set up his own mercenary business. As his guests... I’m afraid we’ll have to overlook who his current business partners might be.”

“Have you informed him of our circumstances?”

“No...just that I need a favor...I felt the less he knew, the better...until we arrived.” Michael glanced over at Nikita. “.....and....well, if there is a large sum of money placed on our heads...I won’t lie to you Nikita.... he might be tempted to ....ah, betray us.”

“Oh, that’s comforting....I thought you said you could trust him.”

“I’m sure we can....I just want you to be aware that trust only goes so far...in our business.”

“Hummm....I know you said Dalton owes you his life but....would he really betray us for money?”


“I’m beginning to not like this guy Michael.”

“That’s why as soon as we get settled in at his villa, I want to access more of our own funds....using a different computer and access codes so we can’t be traced. Until I have arranged for a substantial shift of money for our needs, we are obliged to stay with him....and....I might be required to perform some illegal activities on his behalf.”

“What! No Michael....please don’t get involved in criminal or terrorist activities!”

“Don’t worry...if he requires my services, I’m sure it will involve computer transactions only.”

“Still....oh my god Michael....and I thought once we arrived in Portugal ....we would be getting our own place....and just disappear....from all the terror and fear.”

Michael reached for Nikita’s hand, kissing her fingers. “We will...it will just take time....be patient.”

“Patience has never been one of my strong points....you may have noticed that.”
