- With the meeting coming to a close, Malik grabbed the steak knife that was on the table. – So in this scene, Malik has come to Blue Magic for a meeting regarding the Santiago cartel only to see Blu leading the discussion. Malik isn’t really a violent person, but I wanted to show that he could do a little damage if need be. He grabs the steak knife, but of course, he doesn’t end up using it.
- When the phone rang a sixth time, Jay mumbled a few curse words under his breath. He gave Nyla another quick glance before picking up his phone. There were six missed phone calls and all of them were from Malik. – The number six is symbolical. Any time it’s in my books, it’s there on purpose. Six is my 2nd favorite number, right behind seven.
- Her right index finger was right on top of his heart where he had the face of a lion tattooed.- Judging from a scene in Diamonds in the Rough, Jay’s birthday is supposed to be in June, I think. If I was really paying attention to the timeframe of that book, I would’ve moved it to August so could be a Leo. The lion tattoo on his chest is supposed to be there because he is a Leo, but according to what I previously wrote, he isn’t. IY YI YI!
- If anything, he probably only brought in two thousand a week in hustles. – This is one of Kane’s thoughts regarding Jarrod Luis, the teenager who eventually becomes an informant for the Brookstone PD. This line came from a memory I had when a male friend of mine was trying to get with a mutual female friend. To prove to her he could take care of her, he told her he could make two thousand a week in the streets. I remembered that conversation and threw it in the book.
