Missed flight

He boards the flight to Zanagua, a place he does not know much about, but is grateful to the country because the government has granted asylum to him. They are convinced his life is in danger due to political turmoil, and the money he brings can help their country.

“I’m glad you executed the plan perfectly, and funds have been transferred to the right places,” he calls his secretary and partner-in-crime, “Tomorrow morning, I’ll have my first coffee in the beach house, hearing the sound of crashing waves. I don’t want to be called a fugitive, so take care to circulate stories of persecution.”

Moments later, cops surround him and he is hauled out of the plane.
