â€œExcellent, Travis. You look just like him â€¦ at least enough to fool someone in the dark. How well can you imitate his voice?â€ Rafi Hamid asked, standing with the grifter in the alleyway behind Cookeâ€™s Nightcap.
Travis Moone wore a phony beard, along with dark shirt and overalls, bearing a passable resemblance to Max Baine. He cleared his throat. â€œThe Morgan Cattle Company. Thereâ€™s strange things going on at their ranches out of town. Someone has to do something. Someone has to believe me!â€ he said in a deeper, raspier voice than his usual timbre.
â€œExcellent. I doubt anyone could tell the difference,â€ Rafi said. He held up a small purse of coins that clanked together as the bag moved.
Travis reached out, but Rafi snatched it away, tucking it back into his coat pocket. â€œNot until the work is complete. Too many rumors about you cutting and running from the job. That poor coach was left to bandits.â€
â€œThat was only one time, Mr. Hamid. I couldnâ€™t very well risk my skin just for some coin. Not that little coin anyways,â€ Travis said with a grin. â€œWhatâ€™s yer beef with Mr. Baine, anyway?â€
â€œEver since Mr. Baine left the Morgan Cattle Company, heâ€™s been sticking his nose in places where it does not belong â€¦ and speaking about matters that shouldnâ€™t concern you either.â€
â€œAhh, heâ€™s been pokinâ€™ around a bit too much about Mayor Whateley. I gotcha. I wonâ€™t tell nobody,â€ Travis said with a wink. Someone else came out from behind the corner. Travis gave a slight wave. â€œThereâ€™s Rico. We got this covered, donâ€™t you worry none.â€
â€œIf a word of this is uttered to anyone, Travis, I assure you youâ€™ll have far greater problems to deal with than a couple of swindled drunks.” â€œItâ€™s better if your companion doesnâ€™t see me. So here is where I leave you,â€ Rafi said, tipping his hat toward Travis.
With that, Rafi turned back toward the bar. A third person came from the direction Rafi was headed, no doubt joining Travisâ€™s crew as well.
Rafi continued along without stopping, avoiding eye contact with anyone as he did not want to risk more witnesses. He certainly shouldnâ€™t be seen anywhere near Travis and his friends perpetrating a crime. Once on the main street, Rafi slowed his pace to a casual stroll, smiling and nodding towards any citizens who recognized him.
In the distance, he heard a pistol fire, followed by a womanâ€™s scream.
