rubbing his head as he felt his panic rise.
Boyas.. he has been trying to suck us dry so he can get paid to keep up his
habit. I think they threatened his family too if he didn’t do it.” J.J. said
with a groan.

pass out. Let me call the front to let them know to expect paramedics,” Vince
said as he dialed up the front desk on the phone.

Antoine, I’m sure you have met my sister. Forgive me for the way you ended up
here, but she is quite possessive and brutal.” He gave the man escorting Leanne
into the room a look and immediately felt her hands being freed. She stood

not know of your arrival until I was informed earlier this morning. Again, my

are getting information from him. From what we have heard already it doesn’t
sound good J.J. It sounds like he was tangled up in some serious stuff. Also,
Ms. Davidson called, they traced the last location on Leanne’s phone. The last
location is in Los Angeles, CA. Some of the local law enforcement is already
trying to get documents together to go check out the place. It’s another one of
their casino locations, but it seems like there has been rumors of illegal
