Jack of Hearts…Chapter 20

“Sorry about Four,” said the good-looking, tall, broad shouldered, man in the pinstriped suit.  “She was a good….”

“Yes, she was,” agreed Ace.  “What have you found out?”

Mathews has been trapping and smuggling other-worldly beings into our area.  It’s illegal, it’s slavery and we can’t allow that to continue.  I think Four helped some of his cargo escape and that’s why she was killed.  She was that kind of woman.  She had a big heart.  I liked her too, Ace.”

“How are they doing it?”

“I don’t know.  If they’re getting into Fairy….”

“That can’t happen and you know it,” interrupted Ace.  “There are rules.”

“They can get through to other planes.  When they began importing, the beings they brought across, died.  They’ve been working to make the trips easier on them and I have info that tells me they are acclimating some of them to our atmosphere, while they are still on their own worlds.  We have to take them down.  Any way we can.”

Ace smiled.  “Nice seeing you again,” she said, offering her hand.

“Who’s the guy?” he said, nodding at Tim.

“Cousin.”

“Not a chance,” he grinned.
