We're picking up where we last left off. In an attempt to give Zanovia a break from being a full time mommy, Zadduis hired a Nanny to watch A'King for the day while Zanovia and her best friend Meeka went to get their nails and hair done. Unfortunately, in the middle of her pampering, Zanovia received a call from Zadduis who informed her that he'd been tipped off by one of the drug boss's that the feds were watching him and Zanovia was giving specific instructions to get home immediatley! In this chapter, we'll find out why.
EARLIER THAT DAY...
(At The Trap Houz)
Zadduis had been having a lucrative week. Today alone, he'd already stacked a few grand and it wasn't even 5PM, yet. Feeling successful, he figured he'd grab a bag of potato chips, smoke a blunt and watch some of his favorite movies. It was something about movie's from the 90's that made him feel in his element and always brought back fond memories of his childhood. He sat there tossing chips into his mouth and laughing at the TV for half an hour before he got a knock at the door.
Zadduis wasn't a fan of unexpected guests. All of his clients knew to call before they ever stepped foot in his yard.
"Who is it?" He asked grabbing his 40 caliber and walking towards the door.
"It's Riko, man." An anxious voice replied from the other side of the door.
Riko? Zadduis thought to himself. Why would Riko come by here? Riko was Zadduis weed plug and out of all the years he'd known him, he'd NEVER came to his place of business. Zadduis knew immediately that something was wrong.
Zadduis stood there for a moment to gather himself, hit the blunt one time and then cracked the front door.
"Wassup, Bro?" Zadduis asked.
"Let me in, peeps. Some shit's going down and I'm trying to give you the run down before I bounce." Riko replied, anxiety written all over his face. Riko was generally a cool cat, but today, he didn't seem like himslef and it made Zadduis curious enough to want to know why.
"Bruh, if you come in here on some bullshit, I swear, I'll blast yo' ass. Do you understand?" He said.
Riko looked Zadduis dead in the eye and said, "Understood."
Zadduis let him in.
Zadduis walked Riko to the dining room and sat down with him.
"What's going on Riko?" He asked concerned.
"Listen, I just came over here to warn you. Big Mo's house just got seized and they took him and all his boys to the pen." Riko revealed. Zadduis's heart dropped. Big Mo was their major connection and if he went down, that meant they ALL went down.
"What? So, are you telling me they are coming for me Riko?" Zadduis said, lost for words.
"What I'm saying is, the Word on the street is they are hitting all of his connects." Riko continued. "And I'm next. I just came here to give you the same heads up they gave me. If they coming for me, you know they'll be coming for you. I suggest you secure your family and you're money and get the fuck out of here, Bro." Riko said seriously.
Without anything further, Riko got up from the table and said "Good Luck, Bro." And let himself out the front door... Zadduis was left sitting in the dining room speechless. It took him almost an hour to get up from his state of shock. And, when he did he picked up the phone and called Zanovia.
He hated to interrupt her 'Girl's day out' and most of the time, he kept Zanvoia out of his street-business, but it was essential that he call her in order to keep her safe. If the feds were looking for him and had already gotten most of his connects, Zadduis's drug empire was about to be in major trouble. Finally, he sent Zanovia a text. He was devastated. All of the money he had accrued, the fancy house, the nice cars... all of the sacrifices that he'd made for his family could all be wiped away if the feds came knocking at his door.
"Shit." Zadduis said, throwing his head in his hands, stressed from the news he'd just received. He wasn't sure what he was going to do next, but he knew one thing for sure... the moment Zanovia got his text, she was going to lose it.
He had to do something, but what?
