She thought Sexual Perverts in Government. It’s an FBI file. Especially now when all she wants to do is one last deal and retire to Swiss Alps, Rio or St. Moritz or somewhere anywhere from all this. All this isn’t going to happen now. Anna Lucia who has helped many men reach their goals. You know what they say "Behind every good man is a good woman." Well at least in her case she’s all woman. She has always lived by words of her mother especially "The right woman can put a man up the ladder, the wrong woman can knock him off the ladder." Why not be both.

She’s totally sure she could handle the younger Olden.
Someday she’d sit down and hire a young male assistant to write her memoirs down. All the truth that’s fit to be printed before they fit and tie her for doing so. Of course she’d change some names. Others she thought she’d leave in and let everyone know who’s doing whom and who’s doing what and hang them out to dry as they tried to do to her over various assignments.
The first person she’s got to pay back is Adrian. She gets the idea he is in on the murder of his grandson. He’s got to be with his cold reception and total laissez-fair hands off response he gave her when she initially called and needed his help. She lures Adrian to Vegas. With the help of Rennet she’ll get this done quick and tidy. Without upsetting the Hierarchy of the Connection. She tells him she needs a loan of 500 Million dollars. "Wow, and you must really assimilated yourself in vastness of Vegas High Finance." "You wouldn’t know what hit you if you saw it. It’s amazing." "I want to celebrate my emergence into helping Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce with their High Finance windfalls." "With some wine, cheese and sleaze." Answered back Adrian. She tells Adrian to meet her at the "restaurant". While Rennet is standing over her. Once he is satisfied and leaves the room, she texts’ Adrian and informs him to be ready to meet her in a motel for a night he will never forget.
She tells Rennet the planned job will commence at 9:30PM. She’s going to meet Adrian at 7:30PM she decides. She will teach him a thing or two to mess with this Black Widow. A last pre-killing tryst of paramour or more like a twist of love or as it will read on his Autopsy Report: Male about 56 Years old found murdered in a motel during a possible sex laison . The Papers will have it read as: After a night of Twisted Love with cult leaves man gasping for air. They may leave out mention of the gun the same way Adrian leaves out mention of foreplay. At some point when Adrian goes to shower and get ready to go to the restaurant, she summons Rennet to the motel "Hurry. Change of plans. I want to do this while we can catch him with his pants down. Maybe with some young man to boot." When Rennet enters she is in a neglige. She explains that’s how she lured him while he is showering. "Don’t worry baby, nothing happened. Or at least yet." When Adrian comes out she convinces him to stay a little longer in the motel instead of going to the restaurant "It’s early yet." As she cuddles and caresses him. "I just took a shower I may need another one. I’m getting all steamy." "Oh, you’ll have all the time in the world for a shower." This is burning Rennet, he finally just shoots him through the heart barely missing Anna Lucia. She scolds him for splattering his blood and guts on her. "Don’t worry he’ll never do that again to you." "Have some respect as the dead repose."
