Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Los Santos

It was early morning in the city of Los Santos, San Andreas. Police sirens blared and gunshots rang out in Idlewood. 19 year old Brian "BJ" Johnson of the Grove Street Family ran down the street, fleeing from cops and Ballas members shooting back at them as he ran towards his getaway car, driven by his fellow Grove Street member, Aaron. BJ was the son of legendary Grove Street gangster Carl "CJ" Johnson and was named after CJ's younger brother Brian. After his father was killed a year ago in a drive-by by an unknown assailant, BJ had taken over the Grove Street Family, but over the last 6 months, the Grove Street Gang had suffered a series of stings, busts, and ambushes from rival street gang, The Ballas. As BJ jumped into the low-rider getaway car, Aaron asked him "Did you get the shit?" "Hell Yeah!" BJ answered, pulling a bag filled with heavy weapons as the two drove away. "Man, those motherfuckers don't know what hit them" BJ said as the two made their getaway. Suddenly Aaron stopped in the middle of the street. "Yo Aaron, What the hell are you doing?" BJ asked in confusion. "Sorry, BJ, but a nigga's gotta do what a nigga's gotta do" Aaron said as he pulled out a 9 mm blue-steel pistol and pointed it at BJ's head, who couldn't believe what was happening. "What the fuck are you talking about?" he asked. "Let me explain; last year, C.R.A.S.H and the Ballas offered to pay me $150,000 every month if I helped them. They told me to give away secret plans and drug deals and do one other thing" Aaron explained. As Brian looked closely at the gun, he realized it was the same gun used to kill his father. "You son of a bitch" he said, shocked at the betrayal. "That's right, I killed your father, and now it's your turn, but like I said; a nigga's gotta do what a nigga's gotta do." Aaron said before shooting Brian in the head and driving off. Brian lied on the street, blood gushing profusely from his head, when he heard sirens and cars approaching. As he lied there, struggling for dear life, BJ wondered whether the bullet in his skull would kill him, or if the Ballas would before everything went black.

Fortunately for Brian, he survived the gunshot and was taken to the hospital before he was released and sent to San Fierro Federal prison. While out in the prison yard, BJ heard a familiar voice ask "Brian is that you?" BJ turned around to see Sweet, the older brother of his father and a former high ranking grove Street member. Sweet had been sent to jail, after being caught in a firefight with cops during a turf war. "What are you doing here?" he asked. "I was shot in the head and left for dead by the same nigga who killed my dad" BJ replied. "You know who killed CJ, who was it?" asked Sweet. "You know that Aaron dude" said BJ. "Him, but why?" Sweet asked. "He sold out to C.R.A.S.H and the Ballas for the money" BJ answered. Before the two continue their conversation, they heard an explosion which shook the prison causing them to fall over. The explosion was then followed by gunfire. When the two went to investigate, they saw a group of triads welding AK-47s and gunning down police officers and Hispanic inmates. As BJ and Sweet dodged bullets and fleeing inmates, they saw a hole in the wall. They squeezed their way through the hole before pouring some gasoline around the prison and lighting it ablaze, causing the prison to go up in flames. The two then made their escape in the Triads' vehicle. As they drove away, Brian had one thing on his mind; revenge, not just for him, but for his father and all those Grove Street members who were killed because of Aaron's betrayal. "Los Santos, here we come!" Sweet shouted as they sped towards the city.
