Greely Point

 

 'Screwtop' Igglioni had disappeared. A week ago, he had simply stopped returning home. The Scarpias were mum on what had happened when his wife tried to find out. No one were to share anything. Couldn't look weak, after all. Behind the scenes, they were fighting an uphill battle. Screwtop Igglioni might have been an Igglioni, but he was one of the Scarpias now. If nothing else, someone disappearing him off the street could not stand. Rumor was that he had last been seen at Greely Point.

 

But of course, Screwtop had someone other than the Scarpias and his wife that might be interested in finding him. A certain young would-be AEGIS agent, and part time car. And Chromium would have heard of his disappeared father, at least.

Chromium had many options, most of them didn't involve his family and he preferred to keep it that way, they thought he had just run away he kept in contact with his mom via email when he had the chance but he didn't talk to them much at all. That all changed once he realized that his dad, Tony "Screwtop" was missing. So it was that he was driving around Greely Point in the shape of a Porsche, looking for anything that might lead him to his father. First off he wanted to see who, and by who he meant organized crime, was operating in the area.
 

 

Normal people didn't just mess with the Mafia, but if someone was tangling with the Scarpias then it was someone with some oomph. There was much less concern about getting caught doing illegal things in Bedlam, and the Mafia's iron fist was not shy to come out if someone messed with them. Little did the force that had taken his dad know, there was a silver fist too...it just didn't work for the Mafia. Racing tires grabbed on the street as the silver Porsche drove around looking for clues.

As the Porsche that was Chromium stopped at a red light, a group of youths approached. They were clearly marked as a youth gang, probably one of the many gangs that the Scarpias would be recruiting from. Five in total, a pair of them stopped in front of the car, the last three circling it. 

 

"Man, would ya look at this, Joey?" One of the guys in front, a youth with black hair and the beginnings of a moustache, leaned down, resting against the hood of the car. "This is a serious car here."

 

Joey, whose pants were hanging just a bit too low, and was standing at the side, by the passenger sheet, pressed himself against the window. "Hey man, I think its one of those fancy new driverless cars."

 

There was a short pause, then Joey spoke up again. "Let's steal it."

If Chromium had a face at that moment he would have smiled, instead the beautiful, gleaming, silver porsche didn't all that happened was the locks popped up when the first kid put his hand on the door handle and Chromium waited. With any luck at least one of them could climb in, and then the questioning portion of his search could start. Perhaps these guys could tell him more about his dad's disappearance, or at least give him a lay of the land around this area.

"Hey, man, look at this!" Joey spoke up, his hand on handle, slowly pulling it to find the door unlocked. "Dumb thing's not even locked! Anyone could take this thing!"

 

The youth in front, with the rather wimpy moustache, looked up, a wide grin on his face. "Yo, its like our public duty to steal it, then. Gonna do the people owning this car a big service, right? Teach them that they gotta put proper locks in these things!"

 

Joey nodded eagerly and pulled the door open, then threw himself inside, grabbing the wheel with both hands. "Aw, this thing is cool." 

 

"Shotgun!" another called out, pulling the passenger seat door open and diving in, while the others began circling around to the back seats.

Two was enough.

 

As soon as Joey and mustache's doors closed there was a snapping sound as the doors locked, followed by a hard rev of the engine to scare off the other boys and then it was off to the races, Chromium tore out of there, leaving behind a layer of rubber as he headed for the freeway as fast as he could make it. He knew the boys would panic, and as soon as they were done screaming his voice came over the radio,"Co-operate and I'll let you get out...but for now I have some questions, let me know when you're done getting upset and I'll start asking, what do you say, Joey?"

"Hey!" Joey grabbed for the doorhandle to try and open it again, but was thrown back into his seat as Chromium tore down the street. Both boys started screaming. Joey desperately trying to grab hold of the wheel to get some kind of control of the car, and his friend just holding on to the car seat, holding his hands up in front of his hands.

 

And then, the voice from the radio! "Dude!" "The car's talking!" "What the hell!" Cue more screaming, while the car continued to tear down the road, before they finally calmed down enough to answer, at least.

 

"Alright, alright! Just... just let us go, man! We weren't gonna steal you, we were just playing, honest!"

Chromium's voice was filled with the smile he couldn't make,"A wise choice, Joey, the question is what do you know about Screwtop Igglioni? What are the rumors doing the rounds on the street and have you seen him?"

"Screwtop?" Joey's voice was shaking now. "Man, I don't know nothing 'bout Screwtop!" He was shaking in his seat, while his friend was fighting to try and get to the seatbelt, with little success.

 

"Hey, hey! I heard something!" the other piped up, receiving a kick and a shout to shut up from Joey. "C'mon, slow down man! I'll tell you, promise! Just... Slow down! I think I'm gonna hurl!"

 

The kid started making noises that support what he had said, while he scrambled at the window, trying to get it open. "C'mon! Slow down! You want him to puke all over this thing?" Joey shouted, reaching out to try and grab the wheel, even if he had no control at all.

Chromium slowed down to a normal speed, cracking the windows just enough to let some air in,"Don't hurl in the car! There is some air and I'm slowed down...now, what do you know? And make it quick, there is an offramp that goes straight to the beach coming up and the car doesn't need to breath, you do!"

Joey's friend looked ahead, then to Joey, who was empathically shaking his head. "C'mon man... This guy's a psycho!" It wasn't long before Joey gave in. The entire experience seemed to more than enough to shake him, after all.

 

"Alright, alright!" It was Joey speaking up this time. "I heard some guys saying they saw Screwtop getting taken off the street right here in Greely. Some place down by the docks. They say some black car just drove up and he was pulled into it, then it drove off!"

 

Joey's friend was hanging out of the window by now, doing his best not to see his lunch again, but he tried to nod in agreement. "Down to the docks. Billy said he saw it drive to some big, black tanker. All we know, man! Honest!"

"When was this? What day and what time?", once Chromium had his answers he pulled off the freeway and stopped in an empty side street opening his doors and saying,"Thanks, Ride is over, everyone out and don't try steal cars...it's bad to be a criminal!"

 

Once they were out he spun his tires and tore off in the direction of the dock, it was time to see if there was still a black tanker on the dock...his dad could be on it.
