Jakes Dilemma ( Part 10)
Jake was beginning to panic, his voice was trembling.
“But what then, what happens after I shoot him?”
Squashed Nose moved closer to Jake and knelt beside him.
“Jake, trust us, we aint gonna leave you with your dick in your hands, that’s not our style, you’ll be Ok”
He looked over at the other two.
“ I think we should give him the full S.P.; we don’t want him in a state do we”
The three of them huddled together and spoke quietly, Jake could hear the odd word but none of it made sense, after a few minutes Karate Kid came over and stood close to Jake.
“Jake, we’ve decided to let you in on a few more details, just to put your mind at rest, that way you’ll feel more comfortable and more likely to get things right, OK?”
Jake nodded but remembered the rules once again.
Karate Kid continued.
“Ok, Group 4 will drive straight into the warehouse with the metal, there will be two guards with it, these guards are not armed, they will stay in their van while the metal is being made into fittings. Their job is to guard the metal on its way to the warehouse and then back again, they do not guard it while it’s in the warehouse, that’s not their responsibility. The Russian will have two body guards with him, they go everywhere with him, even the fucking toilet, now we know how these guys work, we know the training they’ve had cos we’ve been on the same courses. They will stand at each entrance to the warehouse while he’s having his tour, that’s standard procedure, they will want to guard each entrance but at the same time have good visibility of their boss at all times. Your machine Jake is the only one in the warehouse that is not visible from both entrances and is also out of sight from the other two guys who operate the other two machines, correct?”
Jake was impressed, how the fuck did these guys know all this, they were right, from where he stood at his machine he couldn’t see the two entrances and he had to walk two paces away before he could see Stevie or Gerry. But Pisshead could see him from his office and there was CCTV!
Jake had to let them know.
“Your right about everything apart from the Supervisor, Pisshead, he can see me from his office and what about the CCTV?”
Karate Kid laughed.
“Don’t worry about Pisshead Jake he’s being taken care of , as we speak he’s in his favourite place, the pub, having a few beers before work, he’s just about to meet a mate of ours who will slip something nice into his beer, in about an hour he will have the shits so bad that he’ll spend all night in the toilets, trust me, Pisshead will be out of action, there is also problem with your CCTV system tonight Jake, it will take some sorting out and that’s Pissheads job, he’ll be in no fit state to sort it, so no CCTV!”
The other two laughed, Jake just listened intently.
“ Now we’ve planned this down to the last detail Jake and we are confident that the Russian will be with you at your machine at exactly eleven o’clock, it definitely won’t be any later but could be a few minutes earlier. If he is a few minutes earlier, try to keep him with you, ask him questions about his house or something, he must be with you and out of sight of his body guards at exactly eleven o’clock. Understand?”
“Sure, I shoot him at exactly eleven o’clock, but if he’s with me at the machine any earlier I keep him there until it’s time”
“Yep, good boy, at ten seconds to eleven we will be outside in the yard, we will start shooting, this means that there will be confusion, confusion is good Jake, confusion means that the body guards won’t really know what’s going on. They will think that it’s an attempt to steal the gold and silver, their instinct will be to run towards their boss to protect him, unfortunately he will already be dead, or dying, because you’ve just done the dirty deed. They will leave both entrances unguarded; we run in and take them out. There will be a lot of shouting and noise but it will end up with The Russian and both body guards REMOVED. We’ll take the gun off you during the confusion and then we leave, Group 4 will not want to get involved they’ll stay in their van , that’s what they’re trained to do. It will all be over in under two minutes, we leave, a few minutes later the old bill arrive and start asking questions, everyone will say that that three guys came in and shot the Russian and his bodyguards, you’re in the clear Jake. Simple!”
Although Jake was terrified by all this, the plan made sense; he could see that everyone would think it was someone else that killed the Russian and not him. But there were two things, two things Karate Kid had missed. The entrance doors were always locked by Pisshead as soon as everyone was inside and what about Mr Miller!”
“But the entrance doors are locked, how you gonna get in and what about Mr Miller, he’ll be with me when I shoot the Russian?”
Squashed Nose spoke from the back of the arches, he was holding up a bunch of keys.
“Your mate Pisshead is very careless when he’s having a few beers, we took these off him the other day when he was having his usual three hours in the pub, got them copied and then got them back to him, the dumb cunt never knew they were missing. Think about it Jake, when the old bill start asking questions, who they gonna suspect, you, your two little mates or the guy that looks after the CCTV, which miraculously isn’t working, the same guy that has the keys to the entrances that for some reason are left open, the same guy who misses the whole thing because he has a mystery illness and is in the bogs when it all happens?”
Jake realised that this was true, Pisshead looked like the “inside man”.
“But what about Mr Miller”
Squashed Nose walked over to Jake.
“Give me your watch Jake”
Jake took off his watch and gave it to him. Squashed Nose fiddled with it and gave it back to him.
“Ok Jake, your watch is now EXACTLY the same as ours, now off you go and remember what you’ve been told, at exactly eleven o’clock you shoot the Russian; the rest is down to us!”
Jake got up off the old swivel chair and began to walk towards the steel door of the arch. He suddenly remembered about old Mr Miller.
“You didn’t answer my question about Mr Miller!”
Squashed Nose looked over to Jake.
“Unfortunately Jake, there always has to be a sacrifice!”
