[12:33:00 PM] ST: Last we left off, everyone met Ja-Cuze after getting through her bodyguard. While Mike performed, Malif and Harry got coffee and spoke with the policeman shadowing Miss Cruz, leaving him in a highly confused state. After having a super-secret meeting with Ja-Cuze, Mike’s friends insisted on knowing what’s really going on.
[12:33:42 PM] Harry: Tempted as Harry is to do his usual, “Hi. God here.” bit, he’s gonna stay out of it unless asked.
[12:34:17 PM] Mike: Mike had taken them out of view of the others. Possibly out of view of other Mortals if that’s possible.
[12:34:23 PM] Mike: Outside.
[12:34:27 PM] ST: (( Indeed it’s possible ))
[12:34:27 PM] Harry: …
[12:34:38 PM] Harry: Outside bad. Private good.
[12:34:52 PM] Mike: Why outside bad?
[12:34:54 PM] Sanura: Sanura is pulling a Crook and skulking around in the shadows.
[12:35:17 PM] Harry: Same reason Victor leaping buildings is bad?
[12:35:39 PM] Malif: Malif facepalms.
[12:35:46 PM] Mike: ((Well, fine then. Doesn’t need to be outside. Not like I was going to summon my zombies or anything…))
[12:36:06 PM] Harry: Take em to a dressing room or something.
[12:36:23 PM] Mike: ((I hate that Skype doesn’t show sarcasm well…))
[12:38:20 PM] ST: (( Where is Mike taking his friends? ))
[12:38:48 PM] Mike: ((Ehh… zombie summoning would be TOO flashy. So… I’ll take them to a dressing room for privacy.))
[12:39:06 PM] ST: (( Okay, go on… ))
[12:39:46 PM] Mike: Mike brings the guys into a dressing room and closes the door behind him. He then turns to Jeff. “You still got that pocket knife on you?”
[12:41:19 PM] ST: Jeff pulls it out, flipping it in his hand with practiced ease, and hands it to Mike.
[12:42:52 PM] Mike: He takes the knife and stabs it right at his hand. ((DV 0, going for about like… 3 Lethal damage dealt to me after my soak, which is 3L. So a total of 6L, which I can do easily with my own DV at 0.))
[12:43:41 PM] Mike: ((Do I need to roll for that, or we good?))
[12:44:37 PM] ST: (( No, you don’t need to roll. You can stab yourself in the hand. ))
[12:47:06 PM] Mike: Mike yelps in pain as the knife goes through his hand. “Fffffuck! Didn’t think about the pain it’d cause…” He then pulls the knife out of his hand, leaving a hole in it. As he does so, he shows the hole in his hand to the others, empowering his vigor as he performs his feat of incredibility. ((Self-Healing. Spending 3 Legend to repair the 3 Lethal.)) As he shows it to the others, the wound closes itself in about 10 seconds.
[12:50:35 PM] ST: Mark jumps as the knife goes through his friend’s hand. “Dude, what—!” but he’s interrupted as the wound closes right before his eyes. “… the fuck…”
Abel’s eyes widen and his jaw slowly drops.
“Siiiiick,” says Jeff.
[12:50:41 PM] Mike: ((Their preconceptions of me being a self-healing son of the God of Death and Parties. I see nothing wrong with this.))
[12:50:55 PM] Harry: (heheheeh_
[12:51:53 PM] Mike: Mike shakes off the hand that had been stabbed as he wipes the blade of his blood, passing it back to Jeff. “Not the only thing I can do, mind you. Two other main things.”
[12:55:16 PM] ST: Jeff takes the knife back and pockets it. “There’s more? Sweet.”
Mark is absolutely speechless. His eyes dart around as if the words he seeks are flitting about him, eluding him.
[12:56:12 PM] Mike: “One of said things requires we go outside. Otherwise, there’s going to be 3 holes in the floor. The other… I need your permission to take full control of you.”
[12:58:18 PM] Malif: brb phone
[1:01:22 PM] ST: Finally, Mark finds his words: “Jesus fuckin’ Christ.”
“No shit,” says Jeff. “Can you walk on water?” He pauses. “Man, we gotta find us a Mary Magdalene. You know she was a whore, right? Brought all her little whore friends along. That’s the only reason those twelve fuckers followed Jesus everywhere.”
[1:02:04 PM] Sanura: [o.o Jeff needs a smack >.>]
[1:02:43 PM] Malif: Malif is going to be waiting at the exit to stop Mike from going outside for a zombie show :P
[1:04:09 PM] Harry: Harry, bored as usual, is playing some bullet-hell shooter on his smartphone.
[1:04:31 PM] Mike: “You-” He facepalms. “I already said… I’m the son of Baron Samedi. Or… Saturday. The guy that owns that bar we went to.” He’d choose to omit the fact that the twink behind the counter was his brother. “So… I’ll let you guys decide… either I take control of one of you guys, or I summon zombies outside.”
[1:05:41 PM] Sanura: Sanura’s gaze flits around the venue, her misogynist senses tingling.
[1:06:07 PM] Malif: Malif sighs, and goes to knock on the door Mike’s having his meeting in.
[1:06:57 PM] Mike: Mike turns to the door. “Private band meeting. Tell Ja-Cuze we’ll be out in 5.”
[1:08:22 PM] Malif: “You are NOT showing off your stuff outside though.”
[1:09:20 PM] ST: Mark shakes his head and runs both of his hands through his hair. “I can’t…” He grunts in exasperation, shakes his head some more, and opens the door, pushing past Malif.
“What’s wrong with him?” asks Jeff.
Abel watches him go and exchanges a look with Jeff. “What?” Jeff says.
[1:11:03 PM] Mike: Mike blinks a bit… “Mark…” He grimaces, then gulps. “I guess something like that would freak most people out… but I can tell you two,” He regards Jeff and Abel. “are taking this pretty well.”
[1:12:38 PM] Malif: Malif will follow Mark to make sure he’s okay and doesn’t freak out outside.
[1:13:35 PM] ST: Abel shrugs.
“I’ve seen some weirder shit on porn sites,” says Jeff. Abel nods to confirm his statement.
[1:14:00 PM] Malif: XD
[1:14:23 PM] Sanura: [them boys watch some messed up porn o.o]
[1:15:04 PM] Malif: Rule 34 ;)
[1:15:34 PM] Mike: Mike laughs at that… then closes the door, looking at Abel and Jeff. “So… since apparently I’m forbidden to show off my Zombies… which one of you should I take control of? I’m not gonna be called the Puppetmaster for nothing.”
[1:20:17 PM] ST: Abel shakes his head and puts his hands out in front of him, indicating that he doesn’t need any more convincing.
“Pussy,” Jeff says.
Abel makes a pointed ‘Well go ahead’ motion.
Jeff looks at Mike, then to Abel. “Nah, man, I gave him my pocket knife. It’s your turn.”
[1:21:53 PM] Victor: *Victor has been standing guard with the other band security. Since he has no other real skill set usuable in this situation.*
[1:22:52 PM] Mike: “Sounds like YOU’RE the one trying to weasel out of it, Jeff…” He grins.
[1:24:18 PM | Edited 1:24:46 PM] ST: “No, I just think it isn’t fuckin’ fair. You got blood all over my knife and now you wanna take over my body. That’s some sick shit, man.”
Abel shakes his head, then motions to the dressing room door.
[1:25:10 PM] ST: Mark, meanwhile, walks around aimlessly in the parking lot then squats down, head in his hands, staring at the pavement as he tries to process this revelation.
[1:25:52 PM] Victor: *Victor would have followed Mark outside and would stand next somewhat behind him not saying anything*
[1:27:17 PM] Mike: “If you guys don’t want me taking control of you, that’s fine. Just wanted to show that what I was saying was true.”
[1:27:18 PM] Harry: And Harry yawns, playing the game with his eyes closed for a moment, then looks at Sanura. “Is he in there trying to see if he can make them give him a son? This is taking forever.”
[1:27:20 PM] ST: Mark looks up at Victor after a while. “… The fuck are you?”
[1:29:04 PM] Malif: Malif had already followed Mark too (as specified in an earlier pose XD I was just waiting for Mark to act again). “Hey, are you alright? We’re with Mike here, too.”
[1:29:28 PM] Victor: *Victor looks at Mark* “Bored as fuck is the fuck I am.” *Victor pulls out his pack of cigs from his waterproof bag in his cargo pants and proceeds to light one and offers one to Mark*
[1:31:54 PM | Edited 1:32:10 PM] ST: Mark looks at Malif, tensing as he realizes he’s essentially flanked, well aware of the possibility that they’re like his friend. But as the cigarette’s offered him, the symbolic modern olive branch, he relaxes a little and warily accepts it, rising back into standing.
[1:33:28 PM] Sanura: Sanura sighs softly “Maybe or they’re doing a ritual to summon satan.. they’re musicians who knows” shrugging softly as she finds a place to settle.
[1:33:34 PM] Malif: Malif stands back a bit, and next to Victor, so MArk isn’t surrounded. “Weird revelation all ofa sudden, isnt it?”
[1:34:00 PM] ST: “Hey, we fuckin’ believe you.”
Abel elbows Jeff.
“What?” he asks.
Abel nods meaningfully to Mike.
“Oh, Abel wants to know what this has to do with your whole secret meeting with Ja-Cuze. I still got dibs on her, by the way.”
[1:34:02 PM] Harry: Sensing Sanura was lost in her own head, he starts to stand. He continues to play the game with one hand, without more than glancing at the screen. “You can have my seat. I’m feeling a little too pinned down. I think I’m gonna dress out and do a lap.”
[1:35:00 PM] Malif: (lol, love the horndogs XD )
[1:35:25 PM] Victor: *Victor looks at Malif oblivious to the situation* “Whats a revelation? and why is it all of a sudden. Did mike come out of the closet?” *He says with a joking chuckle*
[1:35:26 PM] ST: Mark eyes Malif warily. “What do you know about all this shit? Are you like him?”
[1:35:54 PM] Sanura: Sanura glances up “hmmn .. just don’t get to showy with it kay?” she half suggests as she takes the offered seat a mumbled thanks as she looks around the venue trying to see where she might want to place a few alert lines.
[1:36:51 PM] Victor: *Looks to Mark* “Like who?” *He looks around at nothing.* “Little more clarity perhaps?”
[1:38:48 PM] Malif: Malif nods, and smiles gently. “Yeah, I am. We’re fairly new to it ourselves, really.”
[1:39:24 PM] Victor: *Looks confused* “What are yall talking about what did I miss….?”
[1:39:41 PM] ST: Mark gives Victor an appraising look. “Mike. He…” Finding himself unable to continue, Mark simply shakes his head. As Malif speaks, he looks over. “‘New to it?’ What, is there some sort of… initiation?”
[1:40:26 PM] Harry: Harry heads out to grab his travel bag, and notes Malif and Victor. “Bored, gonna go do a lap.”
[1:40:57 PM] Harry: He hefts his bag in their direction to indicate what he’ll be wearing.
[1:41:38 PM] Victor: *Victors eyes widen* “Oh….Yea im not like mike…Or Mr. Mysterious here. They just off the wall. Im my own kind of animal” Victor points over and up to where ever Cyril would be in statue mode and whistle once Mark was looking.*
[1:41:49 PM] Malif: Malif glances to Victor. “Oh, Mike’s told his bandmates about his father.”
[1:42:07 PM] ST: As Sanura looks around, she’d spot Crook approaching Ja-Cuze while she’s chatting with a couple members of the tech crew. She pauses and looks at him, crouching to offer a hand to sniff. “Well, look at you. You with the band?”
“What’s a cat doing in here?” asks one of the crew, looking around. “Can someone get it out of here?”
“Hey, leave him alone,” says Ja-Cuze, scritching Crook on the head.
[1:42:35 PM] Malif: “Well, I suppose there is a kind of initiation, when one’s parent reveals themself. That’s when the abilities tend to start.”
[1:43:23 PM] ST: “Miss Cruz…”
“Hey, I told you, it’s Alejandra.” She continues petting Crook.
The tech crew member shakes her head.
[1:43:50 PM] ST: Mark gives Malif an odd look, clearly not quite understanding.
[1:44:25 PM] Harry: Harry shrugs when he doesn’t get a response. “Call me if things get heated. I have -got- to stretch my legs.”
[1:44:40 PM] Harry: With that…he jogs off.
[1:45:49 PM] Sanura: Sanura smiles faintly as Crook seems to have made a friend of the other Scion, at least she didn’t have to worry about him getting kicked out now… not that she feared him getting caught out unless he wished to.. sneaky lil fellow that he is.
[1:46:02 PM] Malif: Malif shrugs. “I’ve only known my parent was not a norman human recently, a few weeks maybe. Before that, I was like anyone else, really.”
[1:46:46 PM] Victor: ((just wondering if Mark is going to see the whole bird thing)) *Victor shakes his head at Malif’s explanation.* “What ever mike showed you that his business, and now well your secret. We all got em. Me, I never met my parent so its not the same with us all. But it is your secret to bare, keeping it can save your life and your friends.”
[1:49:41 PM] Harry: Once Harry finds an alley or somewhere to duck out of sight, he is gone, and the Speed Demon begins a lap. Around the LA metropolitan area.
[1:50:08 PM] Victor: ((spending that legend))
[1:50:28 PM] Victor: ((oh ps ….grrr show off lol))
[1:50:32 PM] Harry: Yep. 7 legend.
[1:50:51 PM] Victor: ((you spent 7?)
[1:51:18 PM] Harry: Lightning Sprinter=1, Fast as Thought=1, Peregrine Fleetness=5.
[1:51:36 PM] Victor: ((oh shit thats one hell of a lap lol))
[1:51:54 PM] Harry: http://goo.gl/maps/QyIJH
[1:52:16 PM] ST: Mark looks Malif up and down. “Who’s your ‘parent,’ then?”
[1:52:26 PM] Victor: *Victor would whistle again and pat his shoulder as he exhales a puff of smoke in the shape of a O*
[1:55:01 PM] ST: Cyril shakes himself vigorously. As he does his feathers ruffle and become distinct from the rest of him, coming alive from his statue-like state.
[1:55:27 PM] Malif: Malif gives a reassuring smile. “Oh, nobody from around here, or this continent even. Do they teach you about Egyptian gods in school here?”
[1:55:29 PM] ST: With that he spreads his wings, glides down, and lights on Victor’s shoulder.
[1:56:57 PM] Sanura: Rising Sanura walks back to the dressing room to make sure Mike hasn’t enraged his friends into crucifying him or something along those lines.
[1:57:50 PM] ST: [1:34 PM] ST:
<<< “Hey, we fuckin’ believe you.”
Abel elbows Jeff.
“What?” he asks.
Abel nods meaningfully to Mike.
“Oh, Abel wants to know what this has to do with your whole secret meeting with Ja-Cuze. I still got dibs on her, by the way.”
[1:57:56 PM] ST: (( Still waiting on Mike’s response ))
[1:58:06 PM] Mike: ((Oh, I didn’t see that.))
[1:58:09 PM] Mike: ((My bad.))
[1:58:20 PM] ST: Mark shakes his head.
[1:59:52 PM] Malif: Malif shrugs. “You probably haven’t heard of her then.”
[2:04:11 PM] Mike: “Well… just learning about it myself not too long ago, but apparently Ja-Cuze is a Scion as well. That’s the term used for the Sons and Daughters of Gods and Goddesses. And I’m not just talking about one particular type of God, either… there’s quite a few different pantheons. There’s Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, there’s Greek Gods and Goddesses, all that stuff…” He shakes his head. “Getting off topic… so, me and the others, they’re all Scions as well… are here as protection duty. One of Ja-Cuze’s songs was calling out a local drug gang here in LA… and the leader of that gang happens to be a Scion as well… a pretty powerful one, if his reputation is to be believed… basically, we’re here to protect Ja-Cuze from this Scion. It’s possible he’ll try to silence her.”
[2:05:08 PM | Edited 2:05:13 PM] ST: “Okay… I guess I’ll take your word for it.” Mark takes a deep breath, pops the cigarette in his mouth, and lights up. After he takes a deep drag, he asks, “And that guy?” nodding in Victor’s direction. He stops and stares in astonishment as he finds the guy’s shoulder currently occupied by a shining golden eagle.
[2:05:20 PM] Victor: (brb)
[2:08:05 PM] ST: Abel raises his eyebrows in mild bafflement as he takes all this information in.
“Wait, Ja-Cuze is, like, a mini-goddess?” Jeff smiles and nods as he considers the implications of this. “Sweeeet.”
[2:08:09 PM] Malif: “He’s from the greek family, but its his business if he wants to say exactly who his parent is, I won’t give it away if he doesnt want it known. Oh, and do keep this information between us and your band only.”
[2:09:31 PM] Mike: “Get your mind off of your dick here, man! Seriously! You’re not as awesome as I am to get a chick like that.” ((Popping a Legend for Hapless Cool JUST to prove a point!))
[2:12:11 PM] ST: Jeff doesn’t seem particularly impressed. “Whatever, man. I called dibs, like, three times. You can’t break the dibs code.”
[2:13:45 PM] ST: “So like Zeus or some shit?” Mark looks back to Malif after realizing that no one is surprised by this eagle (figuring it must be normal) and gives him a bit of a wry smile. “Well, who could I tell about this? I still can’t really believe it. Or I can’t believe I’m believing it. I dunno.”
[2:14:22 PM] Sanura: Sanura raps on the door lightly and waits for some response.. one that isn’t the sound of Mike being throttled hopefully.
[2:16:04 PM] Mike: “It’s fine. I don’t really want her anyway.” He shrugs. “Anyway… further explanation… everyone who was in that meeting up there was a Scion of different Pantheons. The only two that share a Pantheon in the group are Malif and Sanura.” He looks at Abel. “The one you were flirting with on the plane…”
[2:16:57 PM] ST: It’s Jeff’s turn to elbow Abel. He wiggles his eyebrows suggestively. Abel looks pretty astonished.
[2:17:15 PM] Malif: Malif nods. “Something like that. Anyway, things work out better the less people know, really. It was strange for me at first too.”
[2:17:38 PM] Mike: “And they’re both the offspring of Egyptian Gods.”
[2:17:42 PM] Harry: (And he’s wrong, but hey, works for me)
[2:18:00 PM] Harry: (Harry and Victor are both Grecoroman.)
[2:18:11 PM] Mike: ((Oh right… forgot about that.))
[2:18:35 PM] Mike: “Oh… forgot. Another two share a different Pantheon. Harry and Victor are both from Greek parents.”
[2:19:54 PM] Victor: “Im the son of Poseidon…. but dont tell him that”
[2:20:26 PM] Malif: “Don’t tell Poseidon? Doesn’t he know?”
[2:22:17 PM] Victor: *Chuckles* “I dont think he likes it.”
[2:22:43 PM] Victor: “It appears he didnt have much choice with me…He only picked me cause I survived my accident.”
[2:22:58 PM] ST: Mark eyeballs Victor some more. “Uh… nice bird.”
[2:24:03 PM | Edited 2:24:38 PM] Victor: “Thanks” *smirking at Mark* “Tell you a secret….Hes not a real bird….well he is…but he isnt….hes made of metal.” *looks to Cyril* “Show him lil buddy show him what you look like.”
[2:27:11 PM] ST: Cyril protests, clearly disgruntled, but shifts and settles. His feathers seem to meld together a little, keeping some detail but not much. He’s perfectly still, not so much as breathing. Mark shivers.
[2:27:34 PM] Malif: Malif raises his eyebrows, and grins. “Well, that one’s new to me, too.”
[2:29:13 PM] Victor: *Victor whispers to Cyril* “I know buddy, but we also dont need this guy going ape shit and getting us all killed so if a quick carnival act calms him down or settles him so be it, Ill swim deep next time we hit the beach and get those squid you like as payment.”
[2:30:02 PM] Victor: *Victor taps Cyril’s body with his lighter showing that it makes a….well a something hitting metal sound.*
[2:31:36 PM] ST: Mark, clearly overcome by curiosity, reaches his hand out towards the statue. He draws back a little. “Uh… can I… ?”
[2:33:37 PM | Edited 2:35:34 PM] Victor: *Chuckles* “Sure” *When Mark would go to touch him victor would wait a second and move his shoulder to hint to Cyril*
[2:35:50 PM] ST: Cyril goes from a statue to alive in no time, snapping at Mark’s fingers. Mark quickly draws his hand back, dropping his cigarette. The bird makes a sound like a little cackle.
[2:36:19 PM] Victor: *Victor bursts into a laugh tears flowing from his eyes*
[2:37:08 PM] Victor: “And that ….*takes a deep breath* … is why Cyril is my best friend”
[2:37:18 PM] ST: Mark gives Victor a sidelong dark glare, but then eases up and chuckles a little himself. He grinds the half-finished cigarette in the pavement.
[2:37:40 PM] Malif: Malif laughs too. “Oh, don’t worry, even if he’d gotten you, I do believe Mike has some healing arts.”
[2:37:59 PM] Sanura: She heard something about flirting and heaves a faint sigh. Well it sounded like regular guy talk now.. seems she’d been worried for nothing. She wonders if she should just leave them be.
[2:38:29 PM | Edited 2:38:48 PM] ST: Abel shakes his head and opens the dressing room door. Once he sees who it is, he stares a moment, not quite astonished but getting close.
[2:39:05 PM] Victor: *whipes his eyes clear of the tears and finishes his laugh.* “Allright little buddy show time is over lets get you back on duty.” *Victor raises his shoulder a bit to give him a little of a push.*
[2:39:30 PM] Sanura: She smiles a little. “Ah just checking if you boys are doing alright.. all filled in are we?” she questions softly a pointed look to Mike.
[2:39:45 PM] Mike: Mike turns around to look at the closed door. Then… Abel goes and opens it, giving a nervous grin at Sanura. “Ehheh. Hey. Yeah, pretty much.”
[2:41:00 PM] Sanura: She smiles and gives a thumbs up. “Good I was worried about them being clueless when things got serious” she smirks a little and glances to Abel. Her brows arching as she teases “You know I’m in the market for worshipers” flashing a grin.
[2:41:07 PM] ST: Cyril launches into the air and catches a pocket of wind which lifts him up and sends him gliding back to his perch.
[2:42:02 PM] Victor: (lol sanura would lol)
[2:42:17 PM] ST: (( Hahaha ))
[2:42:40 PM] Sanura: [couldn’t resist!]
[2:43:02 PM] ST: Abel’s jaw drops and he nods vigorously.
[2:43:06 PM] Mike: Mike stifles a laugh at that… then gets a VERY terrible idea! More proof!
[2:44:27 PM] Sanura: Sanura laughs softly to his quick agreement and does a little fist pump “Oh yeah, gonna have to rub this one in Harry’s face I got the first um.. hmm I’ll let you be a priest, just be a good one” she nods a little clearly teasing.
[2:44:46 PM] Malif: (Nice one Mel XD )
[2:44:52 PM] Harry: (Heh)
[2:46:51 PM] ST: Abel continues to nod, though he’s slowing down now.
Jeff whacks Abel’s shoulder with the back of his hand. Abel shakes his head as if to clear the cobwebs.
[2:47:57 PM] Sanura: Sanura smirks faintly and reaches out to lightly stroke her fingers under Able’s chin. “So cute” clearly amused by his reaction and finding it adorable.
[2:49:26 PM] Mike: Mike shows up between Abel and Sanura, grinning. “And then they kissed!”
[2:50:16 PM] Victor: ((OVERT ORDER DO IT!!! lol)
[2:50:28 PM] Sanura: [>< shup ]
[2:50:43 PM] ST: Abel simply stares at Sanura, offering a little quirk of one corner of his lips.
[2:50:50 PM] ST: (( Oh boy. ))
[2:50:55 PM] ST: (( Here we go. ))
[2:51:24 PM] Mike: ((OH SHIT! YES! DOING IT! Oh, so much yes! Overt Order on Abel! KISSU! Rolling for it. Let me pose.))
[2:51:29 PM] ST: Jeff just rolls his eyes.
[2:51:57 PM] Mike: Mike grins at Abel and whispers into his ear. “You know… she might like a kiss… do it…”
[2:51:59 PM] Malif: XD
[2:52:18 PM] Sanura: Sanura laughs softly and pokes her tongue out at Jeff “ohhh so jealous” her teasing a bit less.. gentle with him.
[2:52:56 PM] ST: (( Roll Manip + Command, Majin ))
[2:53:26 PM] Mike: ((8 successes. NOW KISS!))
[2:57:51 PM] ST: “Jealous? Nah, dude. I’m down for a foursome. The more the merrier!”
Abel lifts an eyebrow at Mike’s suggestion. It’s a damn good one. A really damn good one. So damn good Abel’s going to take it up right now. He steps closer and leans in…
[2:57:58 PM] ST: … bends over, gathers up Sanura’s hand, and kisses her knuckles.
[2:58:19 PM] Victor: (OOO!!!
[2:58:31 PM] Mike: Mike facepalms. “Damn crossed puppet wires!”
[2:58:43 PM] Victor: (i love megs shes so clever Mike needs to learn to be more direct lol)
[2:59:17 PM] Malif: XD
[2:59:30 PM] Mike: The facepalm smack is rather loud, echoing for quite a ways with how heavy it was.
[2:59:58 PM] Sanura: Smiles softly at that and turns her hand to lightly caress his cheek. She draws him up and gives him a light kiss on the cheek. “such. a. cutie” she steps back. “No.. foursome.. you sir are destined for many a single adventure from what I’ve seen of you” she notes as she turns. “You boys have fun.” She’d go on her way with a smile still curling her lips.
[3:02:45 PM] Malif: (Love it, he turnst he attempted prank into actual flirting XD )
[3:03:32 PM] ST: A dopey smile spreads across Abel’s face, his eyes hooded. Yep, a damn good suggestion. Slowly he turns back to his friends, his dopey smile still dopey but slowly becoming tinged with triumph. Jeff nods at Abel, smirking, then holds up two fingers and sticks out his tongue between them.
[3:03:51 PM] Sanura: XD Jeff is a horrible person XD]
[3:04:48 PM] Mike: Mike laughs at that. “Jeff, you’re terrible!”
[3:07:03 PM] ST: Jeff grins, then pats Mike with the back of his hand and asks, “Hey, wanna smoke?” He reaches into his hoodie’s pockets.
[3:08:12 PM] Mike: Mike holds up a hand, shaking his head. “Nah. I’m good.”
[3:08:17 PM] Sanura: Sanura calls over her shoulder “Jeff, Kiss Mike on the lips” [overt order]
[3:09:05 PM] Mike: ((Don’t you DARE!))
[3:09:10 PM] Sanura: [dared]
[3:09:18 PM] Malif: XD
[3:09:22 PM] Malif: (Majin you hypocrite XD )
[3:09:23 PM] ST: (( Manip + Command! ))
[3:09:42 PM] Mike: Mike blinks, then narrows his eyes. “Jeff, ignore her order!” ((LET’S CONTEST IT!))
[3:10:00 PM] ST: (( Both of you, Manip + Command then. ))
[3:10:12 PM] Sanura: 6
[3:10:19 PM] Mike: ((9. I win.))
[3:10:25 PM] Sanura: [hmph]
[3:10:55 PM] Malif: (So lets have the entire damn team throw all their Legend away over pranks XD )
[3:11:09 PM] Sanura: [:P]
[3:11:18 PM] Sanura: [woulda been worth it had it worked]
[3:11:49 PM] ST: (( If you want to, you can spend a Legend to reroll, Mel. ))
[3:11:56 PM] Harry: (Heh.)
[3:12:25 PM] Sanura: [XD I think Megs wants this to happen.. yuss re roll]
[3:12:37 PM] Mike: ((Nop.))
[3:13:06 PM] Sanura: [actually tsk not like I coulda broken 9 anyway D:]
[3:13:15 PM] Sanura: [ D : ]
[3:14:46 PM] Malif: (Nah yours wasa good idea Mel XD I’m making fun of Majin)
[3:14:48 PM] Harry: Flare.
[3:15:05 PM] Harry: With virtue
[3:15:06 PM] ST: (( Even flaring wouldn’t give her enough to beat Majin ))
[3:15:33 PM] Sanura: [yeah :(]
[3:15:54 PM] ST: Jeff leans in to Mike, pursing his lips, then jerks his head away. “Dude! Ugh!”
[3:16:23 PM] Sanura: Sanura grins, it was close enough for her and hopefully the close call would teach Mike a lesson.
[3:16:44 PM] Mike: Mike shudders. “I am SO glad I manipulated you in time… that would have been bad…”
[3:17:34 PM] Sanura: Sanura heads out to the tour bus. She was going to but a warning line in place there.. and in front of the stars dressing room if able.
[3:19:46 PM] Malif: (Yep, so worth spending Legendp oints to avoid the “eww gay” …….. :P )
[1:50:58 PM] ST: Got it
[2:03:34 PM] ST: As you hit West Side heading in the direction of Westminster, you come across a squad of blaring police sirens spearheaded through traffic by a tricked-out 80’s muscle car with a spoiler and rims.
[2:13:53 PM] ST: Hans?
[2:15:01 PM] Harry: Oooh.
[2:15:05 PM] Harry: Fun
[2:15:18 PM] Harry: Okay. Let’s enjoy ourselves.
[2:16:27 PM] Harry: I’m gonna run up alongside him, wave, and take a pic with my camera phone.
[2:17:13 PM] Harry: I’ll be matching his speed, so I don’t have to deal with blur from Peregrine.
[2:19:17 PM] ST: The picture shows an actually very fashionably (and expensively) dressed white fellow wearing Ray Bans. Though you can’t see his eyes, the rest of his expression just screams ‘Oh shit!’
[2:19:31 PM] ST: He swerves to the right away from you.
[2:19:43 PM] Harry: Nice. Yeah, figured that was gonna happen.
[2:20:11 PM] Harry: Let’s talk Monkey Climber and Making it Look Easy.
[2:20:19 PM] Harry: I want to be on his roof now.
[2:21:13 PM] Harry: And with Divine Balance, I should be able to stay on my feet like this was a wuxia flick.
[2:21:43 PM] ST: He swerves through traffic in a panic, trying to shake you.
[2:23:05 PM] Harry: Okay, I’m going to walk over, and open the passenger side door and get inside.
[2:24:15 PM] ST: Cakewalk. The guy clearly wasn’t expecting anyone to enter his vehicle on the freeway so his doors are unlocked.
[2:25:24 PM] Harry: I am going to just settle in for a second. Let the complete shock settle in. “Careful…pedestrians.”
[2:27:08 PM] Harry: Then, I’m going to throw him into the backseat, slide over, and park the car.
[2:28:33 PM] Harry: So as to not lose control of the vehicle for any meaningful time, I will use Opening Gambit and Between the Ticks.
[2:29:36 PM] ST: Before he has time to even recover from the utter shock which has his face frozen in his ‘oh shit’ expression, he finds himself in the back seat. The police cars waste no time surrounding the vehicle.
[2:30:32 PM] Harry: I pull out a sheet of wax paper from my pocket, press my thumb against his forehead, then get the hell out.
[2:30:59 PM] Harry: When the cops find him, there’s a sticker from a cheap kids sticker and activity book of the Flash in midstride.
[2:31:09 PM] Harry: On his forehead.
[2:32:03 PM] Harry: http://images.superherostuff.com/image-stickflashrunner-primary-watermark.jpg
[2:32:34 PM] ST: Harry’s given this a lot of thought!
[2:32:42 PM] Harry: This isn’t the first time.
[2:33:06 PM] Harry: Hey. Legend don’t accumulate itself.
[2:36:07 PM] Harry: Then…eh, that was excitement enough, he’ll head on back.
[2:40:16 PM] ST: You leave the flashing sirens and shouting policemen behind, though a couple stare after the blur that sends a buffet of hot LA wind by them.
[3:20:57 PM] ST: (( Okay, we ready to fast forward to Day 2? ))
[3:21:07 PM] Victor: Sure
[3:21:16 PM] Harry: Yep, keeping my eye on local news.
[3:22:28 PM] Sanura: [Can we say Sanura takes Able out to dinner cause he’s adorables :P ]
[3:22:46 PM] Malif: Well beyond ready XD
[3:22:47 PM] Victor: *Victor is antsy he has been thinking to himself most of the night. (meg knows about what)*
[3:22:56 PM] ST: (( We can say that. ))
[3:23:37 PM] ST: (( Go ahead and pose your Warning Line, Mel, while I write the sum up ))
[3:26:31 PM] Sanura: Sanura moves to the dressing room first and bends to kneel as if looking for something she’d dropped. She smiles as she silently thanks her mother for the lesson and whispers softly in egyptian. “I shall know if Los Comemierdas pass” She draws a line over the length of the doorway and glowing golden shimmer that’s barely noticable rises from the floor and upwards. as it hits the top of the doorway the entire rim of the entryway brightens a second before a small splash of golden sand bursts forth, trickling downwards as the scion rises and dusts her hands off, she had one more ward to put up at the very least.
[3:29:51 PM] Sanura: Sanura strides past Mark. Malif and Vic, wiggling her fingers to them as she makes her way to the van. The words repeated once she feels no one is observing her the golden shimmery effect barely noticable in the light anyway.
[3:32:30 PM] Sanura: [actually that warning line would be drawn all the way around the bus/van cause jerks might try to sneak in a window or something]
[3:36:04 PM] ST: The first day goes by rather uneventfully. It seems like Ja-Cuze was right about it being quiet for the most part—that is, aside from the preparation bustle in the venue which quickly grew routine for our heroes. They did, however, get a front-row view of her rehearsal if they chose, replete with all the starts and stops, sound checks, microphone feedback, blocking adjustments made by the stage director, dance and pose adjustments made by the choreographer… but the whole time Alejandra never seemed to tire or grow impatient. Indeed, she looked very much in her element… and no one seemed to notice that more than Mark, who watched her in rapt fascination the entire time. Absolute Illusion got to do their own sound testing as well, and, what began as adjustments and suggestions became full-blown direction and choreography. Finally, just before everyone started packing up, Alejandra invited Harry to give his own try at speed rap on the stage as he’d mentioned before. Ever-tireless, Alejandra invited the heroes to a club after dinner. However the heroes spent the night, Ja-Cuze eventually ended up back at her apartment and the heroes and sidekicks at their hotel rooms. The next day…
[3:44:15 PM] ST: It’s all over the news. Word of a costumed vigilante spotted on the highway running at impossible speeds, past a high-speed chase, entering the fleeing vehicle, and somehow managing to get the driver in the back seat and pulling the vehicle over. The helicopter camera caught the event on film, showing the hero to be a reddish blackish yellowish blur. They also mentioned a sticker stuck on the criminal’s forehead of classic hero icon The Flash. But this is overshadowed by news of a murder near the hotel… in Alejandra’s neighborhood. It’s the body of a fellow rising singer/performer, found with his heart torn out. The LAPD are currently investigating it. Indeed, Ja-Cuze’s crew is going a little nuts around the Wiltern as the star hasn’t shown up to rehearsal and the LAPD are stationed all over the place.
[3:45:37 PM] ST: (( For those of you who are curious, Jeff indeed tried to come onto Ja-Cuze, and she soundly rebuffed him. ))
[3:45:52 PM] Mike: ((XD))
[3:46:01 PM] Malif: (I hope one of us has Ja’s cell number?)
[3:46:49 PM] Victor: (the fello spanish speaker duh….yea right she prolly blow me off too lol)
[3:47:10 PM] ST: (( I’ll say you guys got her contact info ))
[3:47:57 PM] Malif: Malif calls Ja’s number.
[3:49:07 PM] ST: She (surprise!) doesn’t pick up.
[3:49:27 PM] ST: It’s about that time Harry’s phone rings.
[3:52:14 PM] Victor: Victor would have came in the morning but he would have found a body of water to sleep in
[3:53:04 PM] Sanura: Sanura would be there, probably tsking softly at Harry’s sticker antic but smiling faintly as well. Still she’s worried that no one can seem to get ahold of the singer and she jumps a bit when Harry’s phone goes off.
[3:57:34 PM] ST: Vince can be seen standing behind a rather slight woman who’s fiercely questioning one of the officers who are standing around the premises. The group would know her as Moira, Alejandra’s agent.
[4:04:33 PM] Harry: Harry shakes off the mindscape he’s caught in.
[4:04:55 PM] Harry: “What?” He grabs the phone and answer.. “Mercury here.”
[4:06:19 PM] ST: As you answer, you hear, “OHMYGODYOU’REONTHENEWSHIGHSPEEDCHASEANDOHMYGODTHAT’SSOCOOLYOUSUCKASSOHMYGOD”
In the background is another voice. “Take a deep breath, Angie.”
[4:06:49 PM] Harry: Harry laughs. “Yep. It’s on.”
[4:06:59 PM] Harry: “Got those sketches ready?”
[4:10:40 PM] Harry: He looks over, watching the local murder story, his fame buzz fading.
[4:11:27 PM] ST: “I wish! It’s so hard to decide! A HIGH SPEED CHASE, YOU FUCKER! How did you ever settle on your costume? Ohhhhh man… there’s got to be a burning building near here or something! Ohmygawd! You got him in the back seat, how’d you get him in the back seat? And the Flash sticker, that was brilliant! Aaaaaaaaah, there’s gotta at least be a cat in a tree somewhere!”
[4:11:36 PM] Malif: “I wonder how they got to her, with us around and Sanura’s wards….”
[4:11:39 PM] Harry: He looks at the team, “It’s just Angela in full squee mode.”
[4:12:13 PM] Sanura: Sighing softly she tries calling Alejandra herself, but is rather sure that she won’t get any answer either. “where is that woman” she frets quietly. “I don’t know how they… hey how’d you know I put up wards?” she narrows her eyes at Malif.
[4:12:44 PM] Harry: “Relax, and that part was easy, just a toss, and scootch over. Listen, we’ll talk in a bit, looks like our first lead just arose.”
[4:14:49 PM] ST: There’s a long, loud groan at the other end. “Man, I wish I was there with you!” She pauses. “I mean, I wish I was well enough to be there with you. Uh, but I’m glad I’m not. Still healing up and all that. Taking it easy. And stuff.”
[4:14:11 PM] Victor: *Victor looks around* “People are dying Harry….. I know we agreed to watch out for her but if we let others die whats the point?”
[4:14:12 PM] Malif: “I have excellent hearing, my neice.”
[4:15:40 PM] ST: “… I demand to know what’s going on!” demands Moira of the officer. “Where have you taken her?”
“Ma’am, I need you to calm down. We have authorization to be here.”
[4:15:50 PM] Harry: Harry chuckles. “Yeah, and you better heal up. You gotta reach your highway time before you get that uniform. I’m out, no rest for the wicked, and all that.” CLICK.
[4:16:40 PM] Sanura: Sanura hmphs softly to her uncle’s reasonable answer. Her brow furrowing as she walks over to where Moira is berating the officer, observing and silently offering moral support to the firey woman.
[4:16:44 PM] Harry: He stands up. “Okay. A) No one here is responsible for that guy. B)It’s proof we’re needed here.” He cracks his knuckles. “Now we go to work.”
[4:17:07 PM] Victor: *Victor looks at the angry woman.* “Hey doll, *to Sanura* You seem to have a thing with calming down angry women, can you see what you can do?”
[4:17:16 PM] ST: (( Oooooooh burn ))
[4:17:16 PM] Harry: “Sanura, go calm them down.”
[4:17:23 PM] Victor: (lol)
[4:17:57 PM] ST: Mark takes a place beside Vince, crossing his arms in a similar manner but looking much less imposing.
[4:17:59 PM] Harry: “Malif, get me what the cop knows about this case. Subtly.”
[4:18:11 PM] Malif: Malif frowns, looking at the officer and Moira. He mutters to the others “I think I might see whats going on here…”
[4:18:15 PM] Harry: “Mike, Victor, get ready to roll out once we have a lead.”
[4:18:35 PM | Edited 4:18:44 PM] Victor: “We cant roll out harry…”
[4:18:38 PM] Malif: He wanders over to the police officer. “Is there some sort of problem?”
[4:18:52 PM] Victor: “We were given a job…”
[4:19:10 PM] Harry: “Yes, protect a woman which no one knows where she is.”
[4:19:44 PM] Harry: “Hence, once we make sure this place doesn’t go critical, we go find her.”
[4:20:07 PM] ST: Before the officer can respond, Moira whirls on Malif. Despite being tiny, she’s quite an imposing figure in her own right. “Damn straight there’s a problem. There’s a murder near Miss Cruz’s apartment and she hasn’t shown up and this officer won’t even tell me what’s going on!”
[4:20:37 PM] Victor: "You’re the quickest one here harry, and your status can help here….Mike is supposed to be here he leaving while his band stays is gonna be suspicious….Let me go…You got my sat phone number. And i got yours if something pops off you can be to me in no time flat. But i have Cyril and me he scouts and i follow i wont bring too much attention……promise *Victor smirks attempting to be sincere*
[4:21:07 PM] Harry: Harry nods. “You’ve got the spearhead on this then.”
[4:21:47 PM] ST: Jeff elbows Abel and motions to Sanura, lifting his eyebrows. Abel smirks, rolls his eyes and joins up with the rest of the group.
[4:21:47 PM] Sanura: Sanura gives Vic the finger as she was already on her way over there. “Moira right?” she murmurs as she smiles to the other woman and speaks in her calmest tone. "It’s likely he doesn’t know either.. " her gaze fixing on the officer “you’d tell us anything you knew wouldn’t you?” Her tone cooling ten degrees easily. “Why don’t we go check the bus.. her room.. maybe she’s left a note..” she tries to get Malif some room to work.
[4:23:42 PM] ST: The officer lifts his chin. “I tell you what I told her: we’re currently investigating the matter.” He wears a pair of dark aviator glasses and bears a gleaming nametag which reads ‘Fudd’
[4:24:27 PM] Malif: XD
[4:24:40 PM] ST: “That’s not all! You know more!” Moira accuses. She whirls on Sanura. “Look, he knows more. You can see it in that smug face of his.”
[4:25:19 PM] Malif: Malif smiles to the officer. “Please, our friend is missing, officer. Surely you know more about this matter that could help us?” (Blurt It Out :D )
[4:26:23 PM | Edited 4:27:37 PM] Victor: Allright *Victor nods then whispers* “Plan B…” *Sighs and continues to whisper* “Should be fun.” With that he heads out pass everyone gets outside and whistles for Cyril, but shakes his head swirls his finger in the air but close to his chest a sign for recon between the two and hails a cab and asks the cab to take him as close to the murder scene as possible….after going to a clothing store first, and buying a yellow shirt and black cargo shorts changing in the store bathroom. His lion head calf tattoo showing in its black and gold splender. And walks into the heart of the city area, and….begins to walk the street, flashing king symbols, Victor…..Is blatently bringing attention to himself.* “Sorry harry.” *he whispers to himself,* “but if i keep him distracted….she gets to live.”
[4:27:24 PM] Malif: manip roll of 13 successes
[4:27:56 PM] ST: “And I WOULD check her apartment, but they’ve got THAT blocked off too,” continues Moira to Sanura.
[4:29:43 PM] Harry: Harry walks over. “Where’s the apartment? I’ll head over there, and see what I can do.”
[4:29:47 PM] Victor: ((and for those wondering vics doing this to people of questionable repore not all of it but some of the signs, not looking like a dumb ass lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFKiez20-BM)
[4:29:53 PM] Sanura: Frowning she glances to the officer “is her room a crime scene?” she questions as she sets her hand on her hip.
[4:31:19 PM] ST: “Miss Cruz is a suspect. She was spotted at the club where Mr. Berlin was last seen alive. We’ve got her at the station for questioning,” says Officer Fudd. The other officers snap a look at him. He scowls.
[4:32:35 PM] Malif: "Oh dear, that’s an unfortunate coincidence. "
[4:32:42 PM] Sanura: Sanura’s jaw drops “-What-?” She looks to Moira “call her lawyer..” her hands fist slightly. “So you took in everyone from that club huh?” she questions as she steps closer to the officer, her brows furrowed as she’s ticked off now.
[4:32:53 PM] Harry: And with that, Harry walks right past and heads for the car. “Mount up!”
[4:32:56 PM] ST: Moira whirls on the officer again. “What!? You can’t SERIOUSLY believe she’s responsible!”
[4:33:28 PM] Malif: Malif turns away and gathers up the other Scions for a private conversation, his eyes showing urgency.
[4:33:41 PM] ST: She nods at Sanura. “That’s right. I AM gonna call her lawyer, and you’re gonna get it!” She points aggressively at Officer Fudd as she whips out her cellphone.
[4:33:43 PM] Harry: “Conversation happens in the car. We’re rolling out.”
[4:34:46 PM] Sanura: She grumbles as she leaves Moira to handle the legal representation and looks to her Uncle curiously as he seems to want to talk. Her brows arching slightly in question as she falls into step with him.
[4:34:53 PM] Malif: “Sounds fine to me, but there’s something you need to know before we arrive anyplace. Take it slow at first.”
[4:36:16 PM] Harry: (Mike is home base, Victor is out
[4:36:28 PM] ST: Mark is looking pretty angry, but he knows better than to argue with an officer. Instead he follows the intrepid heroes. As he does, Jeff and Abel watch him go. They exchange a look and Abel shrugs.
“Whatever, man. Let’s go smoke a bo —”
Abel sharply elbows Jeff, sending a quick glance to the nearby officers.
“Ow, dude! That fuckin’ hurt!”
[4:36:56 PM] Harry: Being the loose cannon. We’re on the road.) ‘Talk to me.’
[4:37:40 PM] Malif: “Right. That was the same officer I conned a couple days ago. The one working for the Lieutenant that’s being paid off by Los Coms.”
[4:37:55 PM] ST: Before they leave, Mark raps on the window.
[4:38:05 PM] Malif: “I STRONGLY suspect THEY murdered this man, to give themselves a reason to arrest Miss Cuze.”
[4:38:18 PM] Harry: ‘Figured as much.’ Window descends. ‘Yeah?’
[4:38:28 PM] Malif: “In other words, they’ve got her right where they want her.”
[4:38:56 PM] ST: Mark does away with any sort of preamble. “I wanna help.”
[4:39:23 PM] Harry: ‘Then stay here, and keep that dirty cop on camera.’
[4:39:38 PM] Malif: “Well get in then. Cuze’s life is on a countdown timer and we need to hurry!”
[4:40:33 PM] Sanura: Sanura paused “Harry maybe you better get there ‘your’ way and we’ll meet you there..”
[4:40:58 PM] ST: He opens his mouth to protest, then closes it. Actually, catching the dirty cop on camera was a good idea, and one Ja-Cuze would approve of. “Right. Okay.” He nods and turns back towards the Wiltern.
[4:41:06 PM] Harry: ‘Mark. We need eyes on Fudd. Seriously. Help us help.’
[4:41:18 PM] ST: “You got it.”
[4:41:22 PM] Harry: ‘Thanks.’ And we’re off.
[4:41:41 PM] Malif: “Speaking of which, I think Officer Fudd needs to relocate the prisoner someplace more secure….” he says with a knowing grin.
[4:43:08 PM] Harry: “Listen you two. I know I’m not your boss, but there’s a layered plan forming. And we need to keep this low-key. So, I’m going to need to lean on the two of you.”
[4:43:27 PM] Malif: “That’s exactly what I was thinking, low key. Here’s my idea.”
[4:44:09 PM] Malif: “When I met Officer Fudd by the alley, I managed to lift one of his hairs off him when he was in his confused state. I can use that to make myself look like him.”
[4:44:31 PM] Malif: “Then I go into the police station, and try to arrange a prisoner transfer.”
[4:45:25 PM] Harry: “That’s only an option if we can’t do this more subtly. I want you two to go in there, and use your powers to figure out who else is on the take with Fudd. Get a chance to talk to Ja Cuse.”
[4:45:46 PM] Harry: “I’m coming in too, but as a star, not as the Speed Demon.”
[4:46:08 PM] Malif: “Lt Romero is Fudd’s boss,and he’s the one on the take. So probably quite a lot of the force is under their thumb.”
[4:46:14 PM] Harry: “Bribery, wording, out and out divine mind control. I want us able to talk to her.”
[4:46:21 PM] Malif: “And leaving Cuze there any longer than we have to is highly dangerous.”
[4:46:37 PM] Harry: “Once we know the score, we’ll apply the necessary force.”
[4:46:40 PM] Malif: “We want this subtle, butwe need her out of there, too.”
[4:47:11 PM] Malif: “Thus the prisoner transfer idea. She’ll be out of harm’s way, and they’ll have no idea how or why. And Fudd will likely catch trouble for it.”
[4:48:30 PM] Harry: “That’s our hail mary. You’re no cop, the language, the paperwork, all that’s going to be hurtles for you to clear.”
[4:48:41 PM] Harry: “So we save that till we need it.”
[4:48:46 PM] Malif: “Oh, you’d be surprised how convincing I can be.”
[4:49:40 PM] Sanura: Sanura voices her opinion “I’m with Uncle on this one.. I don’t want to risk her just in case we might find out more information..”
[4:49:45 PM] Malif: (Perfect Impostor knack :D )
[4:50:07 PM] Malif: “Yes, getting her out as quickly as possible is the most important thing here, and I’m confident I can fool them.”
[4:51:20 PM] Victor: see this is why i like Malif
[4:51:45 PM] Harry: Harry ponders as they drive. “Okay, I’m outvoted on this one. Make the move.”
[4:52:52 PM] Malif: “Okay, drop me off at a diner or donut shop a block or two away from the police station, and I’ll enact the disguise in the bathroom.”
[4:54:18 PM] Harry: Harry sighs. “Alright. Not sure I like this, but I’m gonna trust you know what you’re doing.”
[4:54:47 PM] Harry: As he pulls in…“Question though. Suspect is lost in a transfer, doesn’t that make shit worse?”
[4:55:20 PM] Malif: Malif chuckles darkly. “I DID say Fudd will be getting in trouble, didn’t I?”
[4:55:54 PM] Malif: “I doubt I can arrange for a legitimate release of her from custody though. But I’ll try, if I can.”
[4:57:53 PM] Sanura: Sanura nods slightly.. “so long as she’s exonerated eventually it should be alright.. I’m sure she can afford a good lawyer after all..”
[4:58:51 PM] Harry: “Escaping custody is still a crime, man.”
[4:58:59 PM] Malif: “Exonerated? Were you listening? They’re going to hand her over and murder her.”
[4:59:49 PM] Malif: “The police here are under the control of Tunante.”
[5:00:12 PM] Harry: He sighs. “I’m sure we need to intervene. I’m just trying to see the best way, but I can’t. So, I’m letting you make the call.”
[5:01:04 PM] Malif: “Yes, and that’s my call. I’ll fake a release order if I can. If not, prisoner transfer.”
[5:02:22 PM] Harry: “Alright.” Harry pulls up to a Dunkin’ Donuts. “Good luck. Call if it gets hot.”
[5:02:36 PM] ST: (( And that’s where we’re wrapping it up. ))
