Part 3 - "I've Been Expecting You"
A short time after completing the last part of the chapter Carlo will recieve a phonecall from Louie who will tell him that the time has come to meet with Vulaj and he will ask him to come pick him up from a street corner in Varsity Heights and to get fitted with a suit from Perseus on the way. Carlo will go to Persues which will now be opened up to the player and buy a suit before going to pick up Louie.
When Carlo picks Louie up he will tell him to drive over to a small warehouse just outside the Industrial section in Bohan where the meeting is due to take place. As Carlo approaches the warehouse Louie will say "alright this is the place" and Carlo will park the car in a yellow marker on the sidewalk outside, the men will then exit the car. As the two men walk towards the door of the warehouse Louie will produce an automatic pistol from his pants and will examine it briefly as he walks. Carlo will ask him if he's expecting a fight and he will tell him that you can "never be too careful". The men will then walk through the door of the warehouse and survey their surroundings. They will notice that the warehouse will be for the most part quite deserted with only a few albanians posted around the interior armed with assault rifles. Upon further inspection they will then notice Vulaj at the far end of the warehouse chatting to a tall man with dark hair who is smartly dressed. Noticing that he is distracted, Louie will take the oppertunity to stash his automatic pistol amongst a stack of boxes by the door in case of any trouble. As Carlo looks back towards Vulaj he will notice that he has ceased his conversation with the man who is now walking towards them after being flagged down by Louie.
Carlo: "You know that guy?"
Louie: "That's Tony Black, he's one of the Ancelotti's top guys"
The man will have now reached Carlo and Louie's position and extending a hand towards Louie he will begin to speak.
Tony: "Ah Santoro, how the f*ck are ya?"
Louie: "I'm doin good Tone, just here to take care of a little business"
Tony: "Be warned Lou these bastards can be tough to work with"
Louie: "So I've been told"
Tony: "So who's your friend?"
Louie: "How rude of me Tony, this is my boy Carlo, he's with me on this. Carlo this is Tony Black"
Carlo: "Nice to meet you Mr. Black" (shakes Tony's Hand)
Tony will look suspiciously at Carlo and then back to Louie
Tony: "Is he a friend of ours?"
Louie shakes his head slightly and looks into Tony's eyes
Louie: "He's a friend of mine"
Tony: "Well in that case I'll leave you two to take care of business"
Louie: "Ok Tone, see ya later"
Carlo: "Yeah bye Tony"
Tony will look back briefly as he walks away to give the men a wave and he will then leave the building.
Louie: "Mr. Black? What the f*ck was that about?"
Carlo: "What? You said his name was Tony Black"
Louie: "That's his nickname you f*cking idiot"
Carlo: "How the f*ck am I supposed to know that?"
When Carlo and Louie turn back around they will be met by a burly albanian bodyguard who has seemingly crept up on them as their backs were turned.
Albanian: "What do you want?"
Louie: "We're here to see Mr. Vulaj, he's expecting us"
The albanian will look towards the back of the warehouse where Aleksander Vulaj will be talking with some other men and then he will call out to him in his native tongue.
Albanian: "Hej bos, ju e dini këto topa bythmut yndyrat?" - "Hey Boss, you know these f*cking greaseballs?"
Aleksander: "Nuk ka Defrim.. le të dëgjojë atë që ata kanë për të thënë për mua" - "No Defrim.. let us hear what they have to say to me"
Albanian (laughs): "në rregull" - "Okay"
Vulaj who is dressed in a suit covered with a long coat will then walk from the back of the warehouse to join the men and find out what they want. As he is walking towards them Louie will turn to Carlo and say "let me do the talking"
Aleksander: "Good evening gentlemen how can I help you?"
Louie (sounding a lot more dignified than usual): "How you doin Mr. Vulaj, my name is Louie Santoro and this is my partner Carlo. We're here on behalf of our respective families to discuss the heroin distribution ring sir"
Aleksander: "Of course, I've been expecting you"
Aleksander will then put his hand out and greet each of the men individually. As he does so Carlo will notice a tattoo of a double headed eagle on his right hand etched in prison ink. Aleksander will then turn to his albanian guard and order him to search the two men.
Aleksander: "Strictly precautionary you understand"
Louie: "I understand"
When the albanian guard has finished searching the two men he will report back "They're clean"
Aleksander will stare bemusedly at Carlo who hasn't made so much as a sound since the conversation began. He will then look back at Louie
Aleksander: "Whats the matter with your friend? Is he some kind of f*cking retard?"
Louie: "He's more of the strong silent type"
Carlo clearly not wanting to make a bad impression will then speek
Carlo: "The ladies seem to like it"
Louie will look disapprovingly at Carlo who will then look towards the floor. Aleksander will however find the comment quite amusing and he will smile at Carlo.
Aleksander: "Ah he finally speeks and he is funny guy.. As you can see I don't have too many funny guys in my organisation. It's good.. I like to work with people who are different every once in a while"
Louie: "So does that mean the deal is gonna go ahead?"
Aleksander: "Not so fast my friend, first I've got to make sure I can trust you. Two of my men are out taking care of some.. other business so I want you two to go down to the docks in south Broker and pick up a truck full of.. merchandise"
Louie: "So we get you that truck and that's it?"
Aleksander: "Just get me the truck and then we'll talk"
Louie: "No Problem. Come on Carlo let's go"
As the conversation draws to a close two Albanians will burst through the door of the warehouse dragging the body of a battered and broken man with a bag over his head. As Carlo and Louie begin to walk towards the door they will hear Aleksander instructing the two albanians on what to do with the man.
Aleksander: "Filloni me gishtat e tij.." - "Start with his fingers.." "Por largohet nga dhëmbët e tij për mua” - "But leave his teeth for me."
Goon: "Po shef" - "Yes boss"
Carlo and Louie will then leave the warehouse with Louie grabbing the automatic pistol he had stashed earlier on his way out the door. After leaving the building Carlo and Louie will grab a car and head over to East Hook in Broker where they will find a Benson Truck parked beside a warehouse near where the Platypus is docked. The two men will enter the truck and begin to drive back towards Bohan. On the way Louie will call Aleksander who will instruct them to bring the truck and it's contents to an abandoned yard in the industrial district where he and some of his men are awaiting your arrival. Louie will tell Carlo that the quickest way to get there is via the Dukes Bay bridge, if you try and get there via any other route the mission will end due to you straying too far from the specified route. When you reach the Dukes Bay bridge you will be stopped by guards at the toll booth. Louie will immediately begin to panic saying that he's not going down for being caught with whatever is in the back but Carlo will tell him to calm down and let him do the talking. A police officer will exit the booth and approach the drivers window.
Officer: "Good afternoon gentlemen, may I see your haulage pass?"
Carlo: "Well you see officer that's the thing... we haven't got one"
Officer: "You don't? Well then I'm gonna have to ask you to open up the rear of your vehicle so I can authorise your load"
By this time a large line of traffic will have formed behind the vehicle and the drivers will be getting increasingly impatient shouting abuse and wildly honking their horns.
Carlo: "Mitt Fitsimmons told us we were free to pass through here without any trouble"
Officer: "Mitt said that?"
Carlo: "He sure did.. do you wanna call him and ask him yourself"
Officer: "No sir that won't be necessary.. go on through"
Much to their amazement the officer will then flag Carlo and Louie through.
Louie: "Jesus man you really pulled that one outta your ass.. who's this Mitch guy anyway"
Carlo: "His name is Mitt, Mitt Fitsimmons.. he's the goddamn police commisioner haha"
Louie: "Wait a minute.. you know the police commisioner?"
Carlo: "f*ck no... I seen his name in the paper"
Louie: "Haha you sneaky son of a bitch.. I thought we were headed for a long stretch back there for sure"
Carlo and Louie will then continue on their journey towards the industrial dockin yard where Vulaj and several of his goons will be waiting for them. They will then park up and exit the vehicle.
Aleksander: "Wow you finally made it.. I was beginning to think you got arrested or something"
Louie: "We had a bit of trouble coming accross the bridge but Carlo here took care of it.. isn't that right Carlo?"
Carlo: "It sure is"
As the men are talking to Vulaj they will notice his men opening up the back of the truck and several eastern european looking women hopping out from the back and being forcefully pushed into several waiting SUVs
Louie: "Whoa, wait a minute.. THAT'S what you had us transporting!?"
Aleksander: "Those women are none of your concern"
Louie: "A simple heads up would've been nice. So do we have a deal now"
Aleksander: "You have impressed me a lot. Yes we have a deal.. you bring me the heroin and then I will give you the money"
Louie: "That wasn't the deal"
Aleksander: "I just changed the terms of the contract my friend"
Carlo: "Come on Louie just take it and let's go"
Louie: "Ok but you better not screw us over"
Aleksander: "I wouldn't dream of it"
Louie: "I'll call you when the stuff comes in"
Aleksander: "I'll look forward to it. But now I must go and throw these bitches a welcome party"
Aleksander will then leave and Louie will drive off in a car that is parked in the yard, ending this part of the chapter and leaving Carlo to make his way home. As you make your way home you will notice a new marker on your map located in Boulevard in Bohan. Following this marker will initiate the first of three special favors missions for William Hambrough who you picked up from Alderney State Correctional facility at the start of the chapter.
