"How are you? What's up? You haven't written or called for a month" - Lee habitually began to bombard Jin with questions. - "I thought I was already dead where. I tried to check it out, but it turned out that you are healthy. I wanted to invite you for a cup of tea. The one from my homeland. Do you remember praising him? I've prepared a gift for you, a whole pack. You see, these are dangerous times. I had a quarrel with a goat here, and he turned out to be vindictive. Here, now the war is planned. There are all sorts of shootings, and victims. We agreed to "score an arrow", as you call it. But it's better for me to take care of my family. And then, when everything is settled, come to visit for tea.
Jin listened to what he was saying with half an ear, occasionally nodding. Baby Lee loves to chat very much, as long as the interlocutor shows at least some signs of life. It looks especially funny because of his cheerful Chinese accent.
Soon they came to a small room.
Here, due to the fact that there were unusually many people here, and almost all of them were criminal in appearance, this was just one of such cases.
Only two beautiful women stood out in this crowd of louts, like a rose bloomed in a garbage can.
The first one is unfamiliar to him, but judging by her clothes and the impression she made at first glance, she is not the best of the others – she stands proudly, looking at the machine gun in her hands, and trying to say with her whole appearance that she is no worse than the audience.
'Is this woman trying to climb the criminal ladder on her own, and achieve heights in this area? It's stupid, like me, to try to pull this off in Japan, but everyone has their own way' " Jin thought, looking at the first one.
But he was familiar with the second decoration of this meeting. I'm half Chinese and half Japanese. With an impressive height of one meter eighty for Asians, and a figure that will make any normal man swallow. The girl's name was Wong, and she was an agent of Lee. She can easily kill all those gathered, and they will not even have time to blink. According to Lee, Wong is a hired agent of the highest class, which is very scary in the hands of a criminal authority.
"I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, my dear guests," - Lee spoke with a smile familiar to sellers.
"I was supposed to meet my friend," - he nodded to Jin.
The fact that he singled him out attracted several suspicious looks to him. But Gin is not particularly known to distant people. And few people know his face. So they lost all interest when they could not recognize the Genie.
"I want to introduce you to a new batch of my goods," - the Chinese smiled. - "Here are the latest developments of China and the whole World"
"Who is interested in this muddy shit? Nothing can replace the good old AK, " - a bald man with several scars on his face snorted. - "What do you have on sniper rifles?"
The discussion of weapons and their stocks at the Little Dragon began. Jin listened for a few minutes, but then he scored. It's not that he didn't hold a weapon in his hands at all, but for him their chatter was useless and looked like letting dust into his eyes.
"Is there a place to try it out?" - he looked at the Chinese, interrupting his discussion with some man.
Words are good, but Jin prefers to understand what a weapon is like by holding it in his hands.
"Of course," - the Chinese smiled at him, distracting himself from his previous interlocutor. - "What kind of weapon do you want to test?"
Jin returned his attention to what was in front of him.
"All weapons with a lot of ammo, as well as, a Colt, and a shotgun" - he pointed with his fingers at the most famous types that appeared only a dozen years ago.
"All right, everything will be brought soon. I think you know where to go" - Lee said, and pressed the clock. With this gesture, he called several henchmen here.
Jin nodded and headed for the shooting range.
He decided to remember the past times when he worked as a mercenary, since it had been many years since he had held a firearm.
He was not particularly happy with the result. He is, of course, a super-shooter, but the weapons of this world were unfinished and lagged behind his past world.
First of all, he decided to try out a conventional weapon. He checked" by touch " the convenience, spread and return. Also very important elements were the weight, the number of cartridges contained, the sound, the design, and much more.
"You're a good shot, boy" - he heard a woman's voice behind him.
Jin turned around. The woman he didn't know was looking at him with a smirk.
She had black hair tied up in a complicated hairstyle like a Japanese Geisha, and gray eyes. Jin would have put her at twenty-five, but since he was a "boy" to her, she was supposed to be about thirty. In itself, she was very beautiful, as befits self-sufficient women with two cats at home and a complex of feminism.
Jin never trusted beautiful girls, then he can't forget his wife, until now.
"If you shoot this garbage like that, then what kind of miracles do you do with a normal weapon?"
Jin was silent for a few seconds, wondering if he should start a conversation. It seems that it is not beautiful to ignore, but he does not need a connection with the criminal world. He is a law-abiding citizen. Yes, with a lot of weapons, not one hundred unproven or hushed up crimes. But still trying not to do anything illegal to the best of their abilities.
Only everything has already been decided for him.

A similar system message appeared in front of him, and at that moment it became obvious what he should do. But he would not be himself if he did not conduct another experiment.
Jin looked at the criminal in front of him for a few seconds, and smiled politely.
"Hmm... let me think about it. What if I impress you? What will I get for this?" - he looked at her.
It is not polite to immediately address a stranger with a "you". But she started it first.
"What do you want?" - She narrowed her eyes.
"What about weapons? Of course, nothing out of the ordinary. For example, you can pay me for some toys from Lee. I will even take your word for it, and if you say that you are not impressed – so be it"
"And what will I get for this?" - her lips parted in a smile.
"A good performance, and... I don't even know..."
"That's enough for me. It's a deal" - she held out her hand, which he shook.
