It's Not Even 'Cake or Death'

One of the assassins is in our custody. At least, he is with Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee, who are preparing to interrogate him whilst Yuen Shu-lin and I take Fung Xe to receive medical attention for a near-death experience.

The assassin is securely tied down as Cheng Nenfa and Kwai Chen Tai discuss their tactics. They want to try the good cop/bad cop routine, but are perhaps unfamiliar with the gloss of 'bad' used in this sense.

'Who do you work for?'

'I work for only myself!', the would-be assassin spits back.

'Oh.' Good cop Kwai pauses to consider the ramifications of this. 'And who are you?'

'I am the brother of Soon, who Red Beak brutally killed in order to secure his own promotion.'

'Hmm, that explains your motives. Do you have any questions, Cheng?' The 'bad' cop has nothing to add, apart from wanting to slap the assassin around a bit.

'What are you going to do with me now?', the assassin growls at his captors and foils of his murderous attentions. They're not really sure.

'Would you like a cup of tea?' The fiends! Interrogation has never been so merciless.
