Cross The Tracks Part I

♪ Maceo And The Macks — Cross The Tracks (We Better Go Back)

“Percy Wu, mate.” he said when he handed over his ticket at the desk of Macau airport — checking into his flight to San Delfina. He stayed over in Macau for a Zenith fashion show in the Grand Lisboa and was approached by a Thai drug runner working for Macau Ronnie, not older than his little nephew from Liverpool. Just as planned. Tea Worm introduced Percy to Macau Ronnie’s right-hand man Muslim Joe years ago. All Percy Wu needed was money to launch his fashion brand, and look at him now.

Just before the landing in San Delfina, Percy got stomach aches. He rushed to the lavatory and stuck a finger down his throat. But to no avail. The flight attendant asked Percy if he was okay. All Percy wanted was to rush to his apartment at this point. Picking up his luggage at the baggage collection point seemed like it took forever. And he couldn’t tell right from wrong. His quilted suitcase flashed all colors of the rainbow. This was wrong.

Percy woke up in what seemed to be the early afternoon, still feeling mildly ill and had a massive headache. At that point, he realized he was hospitalized. The taxi driver must have taken him to the hospital. Overdosing — or Percy’s near-death experience — must have felt like the most enigmatic out-of-body experience ever.

He escaped death by the skin of his teeth. But Percy wasn’t sure whether he wanted to prefer to believe he was in Nirvana now. After all, where did the eighty pellets of ketamine go? And what was he going to say to Tea Worm?
