This is another snippet from the second book in The Yakuza and the English Teacher series – Dangerous Love . It takes place after Gou has visited Jamie in New Zealand in hopes of reconciliation.
Gou looked ahead, the exit now only metres away and he was certain bullets awaited him when he walked through the doors. He resigned himself to the fact today could be his last day, his feet still moving, carrying him toward his fate while pretending there was nothing wrong. No one around him needed to know, not Soichirou nor the men in the shadows watching him, that Gou knew he was walking toward his death. Had his father felt like this? Realised death, his death was near, before the bullets ripped through him?
