Chapter Thirty-Five: Pact with the Devil:

An unholy alliance was born in the early morning hours. The boss needed to get closer to the key. His boys couldn’t exactly get into Meifu. Lucky for him, he knew how to drive a hard bargain. Chance happened to play in his favor.

Kitten Palace Café was busy on this Friday morning. The boss looked at his pink surroundings. Heh, it takes me back, he thought. No time to enjoy the good old days; he had work to do. First, he needed a mark.


Katsumi and Miki sat in the same café, eyeing the waitresses.

“Who should be next?” Miki whispered. Katsumi’s eyes shifted from left and right.

“Hm…” he said. “Do we want to kill or rob?”

Miki lifted her head. “I don’t really know, baby.” She frowned. “Our box is getting hungry again.” He rubbed on her shoulder.

“We’ll get someone soon.”

She rested her head on the table. “I’m bored.”

“I know.”


The boss spotted the couple at their table. He studied the girl first. Women made excellent tools in his eyes. Depending on the type in personality, he gave his females different roles for his operation. Miki had seen trauma in his eyes. She would kill without mercy. His lips curved into a smirk. She will be perfect.

Meanwhile, Katsumi had his eyes on the boss from the table across from them.

“Miki-chan, look,” he whispered, pointing.

“What is it?” she asked.

“I think I found a good source of money for us.”

“Huh?” Miki noticed the older man in black staring at her. She turned up her nose, sneering.

“I hate how he’s staring at me,” she hissed. Katsumi rested his hand on her knee.

“We’ll teach him a lesson,” he whispered. Her boyfriend nuzzled her on the cheek. Miki smiled briefly.

On the other side of the room, the boss noticed Katsumi’s eyes on him. I take it that’s the boyfriend, he thought. It didn’t matter to him. He decided to act now. The boss finished his drink.

“Oh!” Miki said.  “He’s coming this way!” Katsumi held her hand.

“I’ll handle this,” he said. The boy stood up as the man approached their table.

“Why are you staring at us, old man?” he asked, eyes narrowed. The boss gave them an ironic warm smile.

“I do apologize,” he said, bowing. “My name is Chau Aiguo and I have a little well-paying job for you.” Miki didn’t like the coldness in his tone, but Katsumi raised an eyebrow.

“How much are we talking?” he asked.

“Katsumi-kun!” Miki whispered. Her boyfriend gave her a little wink.

“Mind if I sit down?” Aiguo asked. The wild boy smirked as he headed towards his destruction.

“Sure,” Katsumi said.
