I don't even know where to start from… one thing is for certain, this one hell of day.
I had a surprise this morning, which if you stop to think about was actually an expected surprise, if something like that even exists. I got the finished divorce papers through the mail today. It's not a surprised that I wasn't called to sign anything, and that is because some one week after I married Sakura, I went to the city hall and filed a pre-signed divorce paper. It might seem odd, why would someone want to do something like that, but I left that pre-signed divorce paper along with a letter which explained my actions. In that letter I told her that this way I spare her a lot of trouble if maybe I change at some point or for any other reason she does not wish to be with me anymore. I told her in that letter that most likely I would not have been able to let go of her, therefore getting me to sign something like that in a dark hour would be something very hard to do.
That leaves me with two things I know almost for certain. One is the fact that given how she likes to leave things for the last possible moment, she and Ryan most likely got married the night before. But besides this I know one more thing, and that is the fact that she found my letter, where over and over again like all the other letters from the past I've left her I go saying how much I care for her and all those romantic lines that we grew up with. But I don't think it made any difference, since I still got that finished divorce paper and most likely she and Ryan are now married.
At least that was what troubled me this morning, and to be honest I thought that would actually be the only major thing I will be writing down this night. That until I got a strange text message while I was doing a few runs with Tyrone to gather some materials we needed. The message itself did not sound so odd, only if my phone wouldn't have recognized the number as belonging to a specific Christian Freeman. It wouldn't have been so odd if I didn't know that person to be dead, more than a month ago, out of the words of Ryan himself, and apparently at his own hand.
So I replied to the text and asked repeatedly who was I speaking to. Until the reply came and I felt my fingers on the phone's keyboard numbing. "Christian Freeman". Of course at starting I didn't believe it, so I told him to come to my office at Missionary Hill. Me and Tyrone drove there as fast as we could, he couldn't believe what I was telling him on the way there either. Until we reached the front gates of Tyrone's complex at Missionary Hill and saw a figure dressed up in torn clothes like the poorest hobo from Los Santos. What made a very odd contrast was the fact that the apparent hobo was driving a NRG 500, the fastest motorcycle known in San Andreas.
So we got out of our car and approached the driver. I kept staring his face down, until I managed to see that pass all that mud and scars, it was indeed the face of my old rival and later ally, Christian Freeman. I don't even recall my words in from moment; I was absolutely shocked to see him alive. One think was for certain, almost like always, Christian was on the run. He couldn't talk then, so he told me to wait for him to contact me. The next moment he just disappeared on his motorcycle down the hill.
Me and Tyrone had to split up after that, he had some business to do with the Richmans, asked me to tell him the story later when he'd get home. So I waited alone in my office. God that waiting was killing me; I think I actually dug a trench in front of my desk just from walking around anxiously. He texted me after some one hour, asked me where I was. I called him to meet me at my office once more. I knew he was familiar with the place, as the lot now owned by Tyrone was previously owned by a group of assassins called The Brotherhood, many of them from the hitman agency.
After he got here I managed to pay more attention to his looks and attire. He smelled as if he didn't take a shower for two months, his clothes were torn up; he was covered in mud… I actually asked him not to sit down because it would have taken me ages to get that smell out of the chairs. It would take me a lot to explain the exchange of words that went on between us, so I will simply have Jasmine write down the exact quotes with minor actions and everything, as everything was recorded by my portable computer and stored into the database of my artificial intelligence.
Ace Redford: Try not to sit down. Those chairs are really hard to wash.
Christian Freeman: That's rude you cunt.
*Christian Freeman slowly takes out a joint from his pocket as he then uses a Zippo lighter to set its tip on fire.*
Ace Redford: What the hell happened to you? Put that out for God's sake!
Christian Freeman: Want one too?
Ace Redford: No... Now put it out.
Christian Freeman: Why?
Ace Redford: Because we need to discuss, after that you can get as high as the Empire State Building.
Christian Freeman: What do you want to talk about?
*Ace Redford reaches towards the desk and takes a whiskey glass in hand, offering it to Christian afterwards.*
*Christian Freeman slowly lets out a sigh as he takes another puff from the joint before throwing it inside the glass.*
*Ace Redford towards the desk once more and places the glass down on its surface.*
Ace Redford: First I want to know what happened to you.
*Ace Redford reaches towards his glasses and takes them off his head, clipping them to his shirt.*
Christian Freeman: Well-… my old company fucked me over because of Ryan. All my cars are gone, my house is gone, and I had to hide. Took drugs to relieve the pain I got when I was tortured.
Ace Redford: Why did he come after you?
Christian Freeman: He hates me. He never came after me personally though. He only got me fired.
Ace Redford: Well he brags to have killed you.
Christian Freeman: So what do you want to talk about? Look at me, I'm just a fucking hobo trying to get weed to relieve me from my pain.
Ace Redford: Cut that crap and pull yourself together Christian. Ryan fucked us all up, me especially.
Christian Freeman: Hmph?
Ace Redford: Christian... He corrupted Sakura. She's with him now, and he's teaching her to be a hitman.
Christian Freeman: You got dumped? It's a hard life. Anyway did you really make me put out my joint for this?
Ace Redford: I don't know... I don't care about myself, but more of what he's turning her into.
Christian Freeman: And you want me to help her? Look at me! She fucking hates me too. You seriously think that I give a fuck about someone that hates me?
Ace Redford: She doesn't hate you Christian, she just used you. I'm sorry to tell you that, but better you hear it from me than from Ryan.
Christian Freeman: Used, hate… It's the same.
Ace Redford: Not really, but I get your point. So you think Ryan will come after you?
Christian Freeman: Nah', he's too high up to deal with shit like this. Only lower people from the company.
Ace Redford: You could always come with us; Richmans have no love for the Company.
*Christian Freeman slowly takes off his jacket as he shows Ace his abdomen. His entire stomach would be covered completely with scars, fire burns of the highest degree, gun wounds, knife wounds and sword wounds.*
*Ace Redford looks away briefly and then nods twice after seeing this.*
Christian Freeman: And two months ago there wasn't shit on my stomach. Well maybe one or two bullet wounds.
*Christian Freeman slowly closes his jacket again and sigs afterwards.*
Christian Freeman: You should hope that I never see Sakura. Because I'm planning to kill her if I see her again.
Ace Redford: Christian... she's pregnant.
Christian Freeman: I'll personally give her an abortion then. One of the reasons my life is currently like this is because of her.
Ace Redford: That's my child we're talking about…
Christian Freeman: Do you think that I care about you, Sakura or your child?!
Ace Redford: You think it wasn't hard for me? For the moment I'm here to help you, and I'm telling you I know what you're going trough.
Christian Freeman: Shut the fuck up and don't talk about hard. What you had to go through is nothing compared to me.
Ace Redford: Christian you have any idea how it is to know you've lost person you loved and still love most in your life?!
Christian Freeman: It happened more than once to me. I even had to kill people I loved! Don't you dare thing we are the same!
Ace Redford: Fine, we'll drop the topic then and assume you're going trough far worse. So what are you going to do in that case?
Christian Freeman: You should just wait. Eventually the Company will fire Ryan. Then hope that the new person in charge of San Andreas doesn't let Ryan work for him. When that time comes you can finish him without problems.
Ace Redford: I'm not looking for revenge Christian. I've put my guns down, for good. All I care about right now is taking care of my baby girl that is about to get born. And help as many people as I can.
Christian Freeman: You're just scared that Sakura will hate you if you kill Ryan. But in the meantime you cry to others about corruption. Want to take care of your baby girl? Then kidnap Sakura, take her away from Ryan. That way she can't be ''corrupted''. By the way, the entire time I was hanging with Sakura trying to get her I had a girl friend. I knew she was using me, but I allowed her that to try and get closer to her. Sorry to tell you but I was aiming for her, do you seriously think that I was that dumb not to notice all her actions? I just tried to get a second bitch, because the first one started to bore me out.
Ace Redford: Right... so you're trying to get me to give up on you as well, right? Well that ain't goanna' happen.
Christian Freeman: I don't care if you give up on me or not. There's only one thing I want, and that's to ride on a NRG and smoke weed.
Ace Redford: You really think you can do that forever?
Christian Freeman: 'Till I die-… Yes.
Ace Redford: And don't you think all you did in life, all the torture and all you've been trough would be in vain if you did that?
Christian Freeman: The only thing I did all my life long was, rape, murder, torture, leading gangs and starting gang wars. Thousands of people's life got ruined because of me. The torture that I went through was karma. Trying to cheat on my girlfriend with Sakura got my life fucked up, it was all karma.
Ace Redford: It's not too late if you want to turn your life around you know...
Christian Freeman: Come on? What do you want me to do? I never even finished high school, I was a con-artist when I was young, I was a leader of a huge gang when I was a teenager, and I was a hitman when I was an adult.
Ace Redford: That doesn't have to define your life tough.
Christian Freeman: It clearly does.
Ace Redford: Just in your head. You just didn't realize there can actually be more to life than power and murder.
Christian Freeman: My childhood friend, the person I loved died in my hands because of a gang war. My previous girlfriend was killed by my own hands because of a hit. My mother took her own life when she heard I got sent to Juvenile Hall.
Ace Redford: And what are you now Christian? What do you do right now for a living?
Christian Freeman: I'm a drug addicted hobo. The only thing I do now is ride on a stolen NRG remembering my glorious past.
Ace Redford: I rest my case. If there isn't a lot more opportunity to start over from that rank rather than from the rank of a current hitman, then I don't know where it could be. Right… and how easy it would be to start fresh.
Christian Freeman: It's impossible for me. What do you want me to become? A cop? Stop joking…
Ace Redford: Oh, believe me I have no more love for corrupt law enforcement officers than I have for gangsters. Ever considered being a salesman? I plan to start a firm myself, that's why I bought this office.
Christian Freeman: Ah come on! Me… a salesman? That's a fucking joke.
Ace Redford: Arthur is thinking of starting an Ammunation. I think you would fit perfectly there.
Christian Freeman: Yes, let's give a drug addict a job in an Ammunation.
Ace Redford: Also he's running for president in case you haven't heard. Maybe he can offer you a place in the government.
Christian Freeman: Yes, a drugs addict working in the government. That's such an improvement.
Ace Redford: Dude, you're on pot. It's shown that it doesn't even give addiction.
Christian Freeman: Do you seriously think that I'm only on pot? Also on crack, heroine, weed and LSD.
Ace Redford: I seriously think that two weeks or so in rehab would do wonders. I know a doctor that will get them out of your head and most likely bang you 24/7 as well.
Christian Freeman: It's been a while since I had a good layed...
Ace Redford: Well, you go to rehab, and I'll make sure you get layed. That's if you change those clothes and get a shower tough.
Christian Freeman: That's way too awkward, so no thanks.
Ace Redford: Your call. But you could still use the rehab.
Christian Freeman: The point is, I'm over with fucking chicks that don't love me or I don't love. Last time I tried that my life went to shit. You can thank your ex-wife for that improvement.
Ace Redford: What do you know; she does a few good deeds every now and then as well. Unconsciously of course...
Christian Freeman: You were right so I guess I should go to the rehab facility then, but only once to check it out because I owe you one.
Ace Redford: You owe me nothing Christian, You owe yourself. You'll see it that way one day maybe. Say what… get off the drugs and then give me a call, and then we'll work on finding you a normal job.
*Christian Freeman slowly moves his hand into his jacket and takes out a joint, quickly lighting it using the Zippo lighter and starting to take small puffs from the joint.*
Christian Freeman: I needed that.
At this point I actually felt like I was losing all hope for him. But something happened that moment that I did not expect. I was simply standing there two feet from him and looking at him as he was smoking that join, when it actually hit me… I smoked pot before, I had my dark days as well, but the smell coming from his joint was not even remotely that of pot, but that of simple tobacco weeds.
*Ace Redford tilts his head slightly as he looks at Christian and approaches him slowley.*
Ace Redford: Alright, I changed my mind... now I want a smoke as well.
*Christian Freeman slowly reveals a shocked facial expression as he drops the joint on the ground and stamps on it with his foot.*
Christian Freeman: Oops-… I can't believe how shaky my hands are.
Ace Redford: No worries. Jasmine, please do an analysis of the current fumes present in the air of the compound, tell me what you find and leave out the normal ones.
Christian Freeman: How come? You don't trust me?
Artificial Intelligence: Analysis completed. The only fume that could be detected was smoke that originates from the smoking of tobacco leaves.
Ace Redford: You know, I would actually applaud the act if I saw any sense in it.
Christian Freeman: Ehh'? What are you talking about?
Ace Redford: Nothing... just let me check something.
Christian Freeman: Sure-…
*Ace Redford turns around towards the bar; taking the whiskey glass that Christian used to dispose of his first joint, taking out the joint and reaching towards his pocket, taking out his own Zippo lighter and using it to set the tip of the joint on fire. After taking four puffs from the joint, Ace throws it back inside the glass and turns towards Christian.*
Christian Freeman: Don't tell me that that is a cigarette too! If it is I'm going to fucking kill that nigger that scammed me!
Ace Redford: Sure, you know. I would have thought you at least respected me enough to realize when it's time to cut the act.
Christian Freeman: You really are a fucking drug addict…
Ace Redford: I had my share...
Christian Freeman: Didn't expect to get my cover blown so soon. You gave my quite some information about Sakura and Ryan though. That's probably the only reason I came here. Sorry for being such a liar.
Ace Redford: Well. I guess you did what you do best. So what are you planning to do now?
Christian Freeman: First take a shower, I'm covered in some fucked up shit. Then put on my own clothes.
Ace Redford: Glad to hear that.
Christian Freeman: Maybe try and contact Olivia when she's in town. Because man, I haven't had a good fuck in years. And I guess I'll kill Sakura or Ryan when I see them. Not going out of my way to find them though, I'm too lazy for that. But you know everything I said tonight was the truth except for the drugs, homeless thing.
Ace Redford: And how exactly do you plan to kill Ryan? He's still the head of the Agency.
Christian Freeman: Man. The directors are all bullshit. They are almost never guarded, and just openly walk around. As long as you don't try to find them you can easily catch him. The moment you try looking for him you're fucked though.
Ace Redford: Alright, at this point maybe I should tell you just how many relations he's got in F.B.I. and other L.E.O. factions
Christian Freeman: Do you think that I care about a few years in jail?
Ace Redford: Do you think they would come to arrest you? Or put a bullet in your head?
Christian Freeman: A bullet in my head is fine with me too, I already told you about all the shit I've done. I deserve a death penalty, don't I?
Ace Redford: I wouldn't know. I don't judge in life or death anymore. I told you, I've put my guns down.
Christian Freeman: To be honest if I had nothing left in my life I would put a bullet in my own head. But well, I love driving on a NRG, and I still need to kill two people. It doesn't matter when, sooner or later I'll get them. And except for revenge I don't have anything else to live for.
Ace Redford: Let me ask you one thing then. Once you actually have revenge? What's next since there would be nothing to live for anymore?
Christian Freeman: Probably death. I mean killing the boss of The Company… I'm quite sure I'll be death after I do that. So why even think about what I want to do after that?
Ace Redford: Well, I just hope one day you'll understand you don't really have to lie to me to find something out.
Christian Freeman: Do you seriously think that we'll have another conversation like this? I got the information I want, there's no reason for me to have a fucked up serious conversation like this with you.
Ace Redford: I wouldn't have thought after the last one either. Yet fate seems to have its own mind.
Christian Freeman: There's only one thing I don't understand. How the fucks are you not agitated after all the insults I threw to Sakura? Saying I'll kill her... How the fuck are you not mad at me. Don't you love her?
Ace Redford: Well first of all there is the matter of probabilities. There is a small change that you would actually accomplish that. Another thing is... what use would there be in getting mad? As I said, I've put my guns down. I couldn't really kill you to prevent that.
Christian Freeman: It's quite hilarious that you think there's a small chance that I succeed. Does she die when she has a bullet between her eyes?
Ace Redford: Well I could always go to Ryan if I considered you really had a chance. Or to her and spare me seeing that monster. I am pretty convinced that only telling one of them about your plans would get you six feet under in less than twelve hours. But we wouldn't want that, would we?
Christian Freeman: Have you ever considered this? Have you ever considered that she was using you too?
Ace Redford: Every day my friend... every day. She's still got my child inside of her for four months. And I still love her.
Christian Freeman: And you think that she will just give the child to you?
Ace Redford: Well, if she doesn't… I don't really have all those cameras and bugs on her for nothing.
Christian Freeman: You actually still got those?
Ace Redford: Indeed, all of them, and making more every day She still wears the earrings. You have any idea what it would do in a courthouse if I showed how she and Ryan were murdering people for contracts? Who would that child be entrusted to you think? Her?...
Christian Freeman: Man you are fucked up. Oh my god! Do that! That's fucking hilarious! Please sue them. That's going to be fucking hilarious. You know what… I'll be nice for you. Tomorrow I'll go and meet Sakura and talk to her without killing her. I actually want to check out that ''corrupted girl''. If she is really that then I'll let her live. I mean a horrible life is fucking hilarious. At least if that life is from someone else.
Ace Redford: You know, I really do intend to bring this in court if I have to…
Christian Freeman: Well, I hope that you have a god-father ready for your child in that case, because you'll die. Putting him in jail will surely get you killed.
Ace Redford: I'll take my chances. It doesn't have to go that far if she leaves me the baby willingly. After all I am not looking to hide the child from her; I just want her to never leave my side. I can't risk the baby growing up like her mother is now, or being influenced by Ryan for that matter.
Christian Freeman: I can't believe that you only think about the baby. The first thing that is on my mind would be getting my chick back. I mean she still wears those earrings right? Knowing that they're bugged. She must still love you.
Ace Redford: I think about her every day Christian-…
After that last line, he did something I did not expect. But then again, I learned to expect pretty much anything from Christian. He suddenly charged towards me and punched me in the face, sending me with my back over the desk. Before I realized what was happening my artificial intelligence (Jasmine) was already sounding the alarm and putting the whole lot under lockdown, alerting every Richman in the area about the conflict. I got up rapidly and tried to regain my senses, telling Jasmine not to perform those actions as they were not needed.
Just as I was expecting him to calm down after that, he kept up his guard as if really wanting to fight, giving me short punches every now and then. I remained calm to this and eventually decided to take action. I placed my guns down, but that doesn't mean I gave up every single measure of self defense as well. So I slowly reached behind my shirt, making sure he does not notice this and while using my left hand to keep up my guard, I used the right one to take out my contact tazer and pinned it right to the side of his neck. Given that I delivered a shock to that specific side of his spine, he should have passed out immediately, but instead he simply stopped punching me, looking to me with a sick smile on his face and murmuring a few words. "That's it, don't be such a pussy and stand up for yourself-… There's no way you can get Sakura back if you act like such a pussy like you did just now."
After that he finally fell unconscious to the ground, after being constantly electrocuted while giving that speech. At first I didn't really know what to do with him. Get him to a hospital? Try to get him into rehab just to get some revenge for how he played me with the drugs? Eventually I decided to carry him outside and put him in the back seat of my car (that reminds me I need to get that smell out of the seats). I took him for a drive; eventually we ended up at another one of Tyrone's properties, the former head quarters of the Henchman family. I don't really know why I took him there, maybe it was because of the fact that the Henchmans were not only murderers, but actual cannibals, and there were still corpses left on the lot, some even in the refrigerator, and the whole lot was surrounded by a huge graveyard. I think I took him there because I needed a reminder of why I chose o stop killing people for good, a reminder of what I wanted to avoid.
I waited by the car for him to wake up while smoking a cigarette, I couldn't really stay inside the car with the smell that was coming from Christian, it's bad enough that I had to leave all the windows opened and that smell was still reaching me outside. I will relate to you now the conversation that followed after he woke up.
Christian Freeman: Fuck you! I hit you and you fucking taze me! Jesus Christ what a cunt you are! Hmmm… that's actually fucking genius.
Ace Redford: The best resolution of every conflict is the one that brings minimal damage to both sides Christian.
Christian Freeman: So how did it feel releasing some anger? As revenge you got to let fresh air in this car for ages.
Ace Redford: I think you didn't notice that I was in fact calm during the whole thing.
Christian Freeman: Man you got to release some anger. Why the fuck do you think I hit you? You are such a huge pussy.
Ace Redford: You want to know why me and Sakura really broke up? Besides Ryan that is…
Christian Freeman: Sure, why not?
Ace Redford: When I came back, not long before you showed up... I was changed. I wanted to leave all that blood and rage behind me. I didn't want any more blood on my hands. I wanted to stop being the judge of who lives and who dies. I found that there is an alternative to all the fighting Christian. I tried to show it to her. But Ryan already got to her and pulled her in the other direction.
Christian Freeman: You said that it wouldn't involve Ryan. Boom! Ryan joins the story.
Ace Redford: Very well... ignore that. I couldn't convince her to see the way I did. That's the bottom line of it. She was already heading in the opposite direction.
Christian Freeman: She saw things the way you do now long before you started. She didn't want to fight. Yet she changed now.
Ace Redford: I don't want to go back to that Christian... there is an alternative to all of this. There is peace to be found in this world as well, it doesn't all have to be a struggle. I know, I've lived it, I am living it. Hard, but I am doing my best.
I think that was actually the only time he listened to me and to what I had to say since I saw him today, as it was the only time when he didn't give me an instant reply, as if this time he actually really considered my words and thought about how it would be like. He asked me to drive him back to San Fierro afterwards. And he kept silent trough half the drive, until he opened up a final exchange of words.
Christian Freeman: So, Ace… what do you actually think about Ryan?
Ace Redford: That he's a murderer. And that he corrupted the person I still to this moment love with all my heart.
Christian Freeman: And what do you think about me? I'm the same as him aren't I? A murdered, I tried to corrupt the person you love. Why do you not hate me but you do hate Ryan?
Ace Redford: You bailed out before doing that and you know it.
Christian Freeman: Actually Sakura screwed me over before I managed to do that-…
Ace Redford: Yes… maybe the reason I hate him is because he actually succeeded.
Christian Freeman: And how do you think about Sakura? The old one… the corrupt one…
Ace Redford: I still love her. But I am well aware that she is on her way to killing that innocent girl I fell in love with all those years back.
Christian Freeman: Let's say she turns corrupted completely and follows Ryan to become a hitman. Would you still love her?
Ace Redford: I don't know. I haven't figured out a way to stop loving her to be honest. So to answer your question, yes… somewhere in my heart I still think I would love her.
Christian Freeman: How does she think about you now? The old secret agent, government assigned assassin… and the new pussy Ace?
Ace Redford: Well she stopped me from killing myself three days ago… long story. So I still think she cares to a degree.
Christian Freeman: And how do you think she thinks about Ryan? You've been with her since childhood so you must know the answer.
Ace Redford: I think she might actually love him. She tells me that he is supportive with her and cares about her… That's why I don't step in.
Christian Freeman: Aaaaand… that's wrong! Sakura wears the earrings with your cameras inside while Ryan commits serious felonies in front of her. And she loves him? While showing you all that? Does that add up to you?
Ace Redford: She most likely wears those earrings because she knows as a last resort I would be there to save her if I saw trough those hidden cameras that she was in danger.
Christian Freeman: Man, you are an idiot. She would at least hide the earrings in her pocket in that case right? So she can still call for help when needed.
Ace Redford: Okay Christian... Let's say she still has feelings for me... What do you propose I do?
Christian Freeman: For now nothing. If you ask me it's farther than your nose is long. Do you want to know what I think about all this?
Ace Redford: Shoot.
Christian Freeman: Did you ever consider Ryan forcing her to be with him? Let's say something like "I'll kill your husband if you don't". If you count everything in then it adds up to something like that, wearing the earrings in front of Ryan, saving your life when you try to kill yourself.
Ace Redford: Let's say it's a possibility. What do you suggest I do?
Christian Freeman: You know the thing I said about not having anything else except for revenge… that's still true. Let's have a talk the next time after I speak with Sakura. Because there's no way she'd seriously fall in love with Ryan. She'd either make use of him trying to get in the company or something like I said earlier. I mean there's one thing I know for sure, that she had no reason to use you. I mean you were an asshole, overprotective, a pussy, a gang leader. While she was a pacifistic bitch that sometimes used people. But there was no reason to use you, so it's clear that she actually loved you. So why would she leave without a warning, taking a 180 degrees turn and become a hitman? While she is pregnant of the man she loved and took care of her?
Ace Redford: Security? Power?... In her mind those people that she is asked to kill actually deserve to die. She already feels like she is above the law, and she knows who deserves to live and who deserves to die.
Christian Freeman: Power-… Hmm, I had quite a lot of power back then. I even had a Hunter and I showed it to Sakura. So it isn't power or security, otherwise she'd be on my lap now-…
Ace Redford: Alright! Let me ask you something now… let's say it's true, and she still loves me, and I know I still love her. And you are trying to find out if it really is so-... Why? Why help us?...
Christian Freeman: That's something I'm not willing to answer. I mean I can't just blow away all my secrets, can I?-…
After that he kept blabbing a lot of things about how things he does don't make sense and stuff like that just to get me distracted from what I just realized that moment. And that was the fact that all along, even given all his lies, threats and offensive language… Christian-… the hitman, the criminal, the gang leader, the murderer-… actually cared about the love story between me and Sakura. He actually wanted to help. So as I was saying in my precious entry my dear reader… hope remains. Even for those that you would expect it less.
After that I dropped Christian off at the V.I.P. Club in San Fierro and headed back to Missionary Hill. Amusingly enough, I arrived just when Tyrone finished his deals with the Richmans and was heading back as well, so we ended up parking our cars at the same time. I find his timing hilarious, as he managed to arrive at the end of all the action. Nevertheless, I will be putting him up to date in the morning.
There is one thing that Christian said today that is still on my mind… why is Sakura really still wearing the earrings she's got from me, knowing that I can see and record everything she does. Was Christian right after all? Does she really want me to see something? Well one thing I know for certain, I won't be getting any sleep tonight, as I will be looking over all the videos recorded by Sakura's earrings in the last week.
