Bullets popped and pinged all over the boat and pierced the
Mediterranean's dark, undulating surface. Somebody had tipped off the
local gendarmerie about the bootleg cigarettes down in our
hold, and they'd been there on the shore to greet us as we steamed up
to the dock. Hajer, our snaggletoothed Tunisian captain, knew that we
were nabbed. But it would be bad form to go quietly. In Marseilles, a
brief exchange of half-serious gunfire was considered merely the polite
prelude to an arrest. Hajer's sneering smile stretched the long scar
that ran down the side of his face as he popped off a couple more
Me, I hunched down behind a big coil of rope, lit another Gauloise, and tortured myself with memories of the jeune fille back in Tangiers, the one who'd driven me to seek my fortune at sea. Some fortune.
Hajer's pantomime of resistance, it all went according to form: we were
cuffed, loaded into a van, booked, locked up, all for the crime of
violating the monopoly of France's state-owned tobacco company. A gawky
French cop with too much nose hair led me to my cell. I asked a
(perhaps flippant) question about when breakfast was served around
here. "For all I care, you can rot to death in this cell until the rats
feast on your stinking guts and the flies lay their eggs in your
liquefying eyeballs," he spat, which I thought seemed unduly harsh for
a victimless crime.
I was just reminiscing about what my
lost love smelled like - lilacs and cumin and something else I couldn't
place - when Nosehair swung the cell door open for a surprise visit.
"If I'd've known you were coming, I'd've set out a platter of petit fours," I told him. He said only, "Come." I followed him and his dense nasal thatch back down the hall.
bored, jowly desk cop gave me the news: "You're being released." I took
my belt and my little bag of personal effects from him, confused but in
no mood to ask a lot of pesky questions. "It seems that our informant
was incorrect. There were no cigarettes on that boat. You have
committed no crime."
No cigarettes? What? I'd loaded some
of the crates myself. But then it occurred to me...I'd never looked
inside any of them. Jowls went on as he scrawled away at my release
paperwork. "No, all that was in the boat was a large shipment of JVC 770 Watt 7.1 Receivers."
My head swam. "You mean the RXD301S? The home theater receiver with 110 watts per channel to 7.1 channels? The one with Dolby Digital EX and all kinds of DTS surround processing, and the ability to connect wirelessly to any PC with a free USB port? That JVC 770 Watt 7.1 Receiver?" I couldn't get my head around it. It didn't make any sense.
looking up, he nodded. The jowls danced. "The same. Perfectly legal
within French borders, although the slim chassis does have some heat
dissipation issues. Now, if you'll sign here..."
I signed. I
left. I never saw Hajer again. And I never did figure out what angle he
was working. But I knew one thing: with all those JVC 770 Watt 7.1 Receivers, it probably sounded pretty good.
