Endeavoring to look as inconspicuous as possible, Omar began to divulge all the state secret that he knew to his operative, Louis. Their relationship was a curious one.

If Omar stubbed his toe, Louis would cry out in pain. They were like twins who had been separated at birth.
“Speak up, Omar!” Louis chided. “I can barely hear you.”
