"Ready? Let's do it!"

The entire hall went silent as David and Nikki walked into the Chinatown Cultural Center's hidden back room, known as the local gambling den – a small army of backup armed cops behind them to keep the peace in the den of criminals.

Every eye was on them as they coasted seemingly without a care through the partially filled tables until they reached the one where several young well-dressed men were playing Pai Gow.

David and Nikki approached the table and faced off against the one who was clearly in charge, their hands on their weapons showing they were serious.

"Wo-Chi Chiang? Stand up," David ordered. "You're under arrest."

When the man hesitated, looking around at his suddenly silent companions, Nikki beckoned to him to rise with her cuffs.

"Come on... We ain't got all day. Get your ass outta that chair!"

When he failed to respond, she dragged him up and frisked him right there, snapping the cuffs on him as he spat out a few words then spit on the floor in her direction.

"Oh, I think Mr. Chiang here might have just cursed your name," David said, bemused.

"Oh really?" Nikki replied, feeling saucy. "Let's see what the future has in store for our Mr. Chiang." She reached blindly to the table and pulled up a domino tile, reading it off and showing it to him. "Four. Oh, that's not good. That means death, doesn't it?"

"I believe it does," David echoed smugly.

"And for me?" She lifted another and held it up, triumphant. "Two 8s! That's double happiness, which is so going to be me when I throw your ass in jail and go out for a cold one in celebration! David?" She tossed him the tile. "We're double happiness, dude! I'm buying!"

Lol I love it when Nikki's sassy. You always do such a nice job of capturing each character's particular brand of snark. :)
