Captain Montenero
Deploying all is charm in an inquisitive way

Anything to declare senorita?

Luli May
Yes, I declare that I like to get to my hotel and cool off

Captain Montenero
(amused)
How much money are you bringing with you and how long do you plan to stay with us?

Luli May
Your guess is as good as mine, and I do have twenty nine dollars and some change in my purse
do that answer your question captain Uh? What is your name?

As the official are looking through her suitcase, besides beautiful kimonos, a few article of toilet not much there is found




Captain Moreno
Captain Moreno at your service handing her a business card

Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time for any services, It will be my pleasure to show you around our beautiful town.
But I guess you already have a chaperon, spotting Mike Moretti who has been discretly waiving at her.
One of your contact in San Pedro??

Luli May
He is my body guard, I had to hire one, not very familiar with American culture, I am a foreigner after
all and a woman, you can never be too prudent.
Thank you kindly captain Moreno, I will use your number with discretion.

Captain Moreno
(with a smile)
You still have not answered my question about the length of time you will stay in the US?

Luli May
(in a flash of temper)
What is going on here? First your people throw my personal belonging around, then you keep asking a lot of personal questions! Maybe you do not mind baking in this oven, but I do!!

Nick and Quantero are observing the scene with interest

Mike Moretti, sees how upset and agitated Luli May has become and his pushing people trying to cross
the “Passenger arrival” line, getting the attention of an officer he stops and make grind his teeths, and stumping with rage that he is trying to contain.
People notice how forceful he can become and move away, he regain his calm looking down at his shiny shoes and breathing heavily.

Captain Moreno

You are free to go Senera, but please contact your embassy if you plan on extending your stay in our
beautiful country.
My apologies for the hot weather and the wait,
I am sure we will see each other soon
