Martinez' taste of his poison...the other side of the coin for his action

Ricardo feels short-changed whenever he’s in business with his boss,
Martinez, who does ‘’business’’ at theLaGuardia Airport, with all the five
major staffers, a part of his drug-cartel network. Having worked for his
boss for over a decade, Ricardo sees the need to pay him back in his coin.
Despite his faithfulness through the years, Martinez is fond of derogating
his efforts and using the proceeds---that are due Ricardo---to his chains
of girlfriends. Ricardo’s complaints hold no waters as Martinez prioritizes
his lovers over intricate business deals he has with Ricardo.

However, Ricardo seeks on how his boss would, someday, have a taste of his
poison---a reward for the wrongs he did to him. He figures out a plan. He
discusses with his Doctor to create a ‘’image’’ of himself and contracts a
willing-to-die for -the -money street thug, Roberto, to do his
bidding---the would-be Ricardo’s impostor---delivering fake dollars,
instead of the actual consignment as instructed by his boss. Roberto, or
better known as ‘’Ricardo’’, is aware of the whole plot.

‘’Ricardo’’ is well-paid and is fully prepared for the task ahead. Ricardo,
knowing the ropes of the cartel, explores the loophole and finds an escape
route never to be seen again. Ricardo leaves the cartel with the hugest
fortune, untraced!

The success of the plan is to Ricardo’s advantage but leaves ‘’Ricardo’’ to
his fate…
