Kuli: Hello, Ku Li here.
Madet: Tun, here, Why do you want to speak to me?
Kuli: What? I want to speak to you? Who gave you that idea? But I was expecting your call.
Madet: What do you mean you were expecting my call?
Kuli: Det, You don't mind if I don't call you Tun? I am after all a Tengku and Tun means nothing to me you know. It's just too low class.
Madet: Just say what you want to say, I don't have much time. I am a busy man you know.
Kuli: If I remember right, it was you who called me and now you say you don't have time; you are busy; busy doing what? Busy scheming? I know you do that well, too well. Hmm you're busy aren't you then I think the conversation is over …
Madet: No, no don't hang up. Okay, okay, it was me who wants to talk to you but admit it that you wanted to see me too, right?
Kuli: I know it was you who wanted to talk to me badly, and as I said earlier, I was expecting your call. No more airs huh? How does it feel?
Madet: Do you want to rub it in? Then I guess, conversation is really over …
Kuli: Fine with me ….
Madet: No no no no, don't hang up. You really call my bluff don't you?
Kuli: Look Det, I can read you like a book and with the election results being what it is, you are the one squirming the most, not Lah.
Madet: Yeah, yeah go on rub it in. I know you are still ambitious. You may be old but you still want that elusive post and I am in the position to help you.
Kuli: Help me? Oh, I am loving this. You help me? Help me to do what? To save your skin? To get Lah down or to stop Anwar? You are truly afraid of him aren't you?
Madet: Do you want to hear my proposal or not?
Kuli: Or what? What? Say it, say it. hehehehe, Oh I have been waiting for this since 87. Okay what's your proposal?
Madet: You know I still have support, I know you do have some though not much, so why not we join forces and force Lah to abdicate and put Najib there?
Kuli: We work, spend our money, to put that Najib there? Najib? The one who played me out in 87? And just what do you mean I have not much support? Look Det, beggars can't be choosers, so show some humility which I know is difficult for a person like you and I just might consider working with you.
Madet: Okay, I am sorry, I am sorry. Satisfied? Yes, you still have considerable support so together we could get Lah down.
Kuli: You said I am ambitious. That I agree, but despite knowing my ambition you still suggested Najib? What kind of fool do you take me for?
Madet: This is to show that you don't want it for yourself, then, I get some divisions to disagree with Najib and suggest you instead. That would be better then you offering yourself straight away.
Kuli: Look, we may be working together but get this clear, I don't trust you, not one bit. I will offer myself and you agree, then we get our trouble makers to get working. I know you have some A-list bloggers working for you and so with my network we force him down.
Madet: I don't think that is a good idea.
Kuli: I know, it has always been your idea only, well things have changed, you are not up there anymore and we don't actually have much time, Anwar's people are working overtime and should he get into that plump seat, it's you, not me that he will be after. So you still think your idea is better?
Madet: Okay, how do you intend we go about it?
Kuli: Send your man to see me in two days. I do have to go. I am busy you know. Bye. (aside to his aide) That was Tun, as I had expected, he needed my help to get Lah down. Wait till he sees what I have planned for him when I get to be PM.
Madet: (aside) He walked right into my trap. Get ready, it's not gonna be Kuli or Najib or even Anwar, I'll be PM and you will be deputy. Oh son, get my coffee please.
