(11:32:33 PM) Maddy: «Shut up, Lance.»
(11:32:41 PM) Sabitsuki: Vance and Lance can both clearly see the figure in the NBC suit, frozen with Jason's sight on her head

(11:33:37 PM) Yox|Laptop: «I have visual contact, Jason.» Vance steps forward. "Please lower yourself to your knees and place your hands behind your head."
(11:34:22 PM) Sabitsuki: She does so, placing a suitcase and the white flag down next to her
(11:34:41 PM) TroyL: Z-4 follows Midnight out.
(11:35:09 PM) Yox|Laptop: Vance comes up to a few feet from the woman. "Identify yourself."
(11:35:26 PM) E4D: «I have you covered.»

(11:37:04 PM) Ragazzo: Lance waits, observing the woman.
(11:37:06 PM) Sabitsuki: "I'm a courier. A man with bandages on his face and a red cloak told me to give you guys a package." The voice is female
(11:37:39 PM) Yox|Laptop: "A courier. Did this man have a black snake with him?" Vance narrows his eyes.

(11:37:55 PM) Sabitsuki: "Little talking runt? Yeah."
(11:38:05 PM) Sabitsuki: nope
(11:38:17 PM) Yox|Laptop: "…This briefcase is the package, then?" He gestures to the item.
(11:38:32 PM) Sabitsuki: "It's in there, yeah."
(11:38:48 PM) Ragazzo: "I'll grab it?"
(11:38:54 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Got it. Stand by." He retreats a couple paces. "You will do no such thing."
(11:38:57 PM) Sabitsuki: "It's locked."
(11:39:03 PM) Yox|Laptop: «Jason, Vance, come back.»
(11:39:21 PM) Ragazzo: Lance shrugs.
(11:39:23 PM) E4D: «Go.»
(11:39:54 PM) Yox|Laptop: «Unsub identifies herself as a courier - her briefcase contains a package from the man in red - the merchant and his snake. Standing by for orders.»
(11:40:39 PM) Yox|Laptop: «The case is locked, according to her.»
(11:40:57 PM) E4D: «Have her open the case. Make sure that you and Cole have some standoff.»
(11:41:22 PM) Yox|Laptop: «Solid copy.» "Lance, get back. Ma'am, please open the case."
(11:41:33 PM) Yox|Laptop: Vance steps back a couple more paces.
(11:41:52 PM) Ragazzo: Lance does the same.
(11:42:25 PM) Sabitsuki: She pushes herself up, shrugs, and grabs the case. She flicks a few dials on the for a couple minutes, and the case pops open.
(11:42:31 PM) Sabitsuki: *on the lid
(11:42:55 PM) Yox|Laptop: Vance peels his eyes. "Please remove the package."
(11:43:46 PM) Sabitsuki: She sighs and removes a plastic baggy with a electronic hot plate, several clean white coffee mugs, and a red shard of glass in it.
(11:44:47 PM) Ragazzo: "Hmm."
(11:44:51 PM) Yox|Laptop: «Jason, Vance. It…looks like she brought a hot plate, some mugs…and a shard of red glass. Stand by.» "Ma'am, do you know what that red shard is?"
(11:45:02 PM) Sabitsuki: "No."
(11:45:21 PM) Yox|Laptop: «Shard of glass is unknown.»
(11:45:47 PM) Sabitsuki: "The snake spat it up and told me it was 'bad for business' and some then they wrote some stuff down. The note is in my pocket underneath this suit."
(11:45:59 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Can you read that note to us?"
(11:46:40 PM) Sabitsuki: "Uh…I'd really rather not stand here in the street and strip."
(11:47:46 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Stand by." «Jason, Vance. The courier has a note from the merchant and his snake, but it's in a pocket underneath her MOPP gear. She doesn't want to strip out in the street - standing by for orders.»
(11:48:24 PM) Ragazzo: "The note might not even be for us. Is it?" He looks at the woman.
(11:48:53 PM) Sabitsuki: "It's instructions for me and then whoever I hand this crap off to."
(11:49:05 PM) E4D: «Uh… you don't have to strip. She's not wearing anything under it?»
(11:49:44 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Are you…not wearing anything under that? Why?"
(11:50:01 PM) Sabitsuki: "That's…really not any of your business."
(11:50:20 PM) Ragazzo: «She's right.»
(11:50:45 PM) Ragazzo: "Look, we could just put her in a room to let her change, right?"
(11:50:52 PM) Yox|Laptop: "…" «It would appear she is not.»
(11:50:52 PM) Ragazzo: "Have geier watch, or something."
(11:51:10 PM) Dexanote: oh babby
(11:51:18 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Cole, just….just. I'm getting direction from Jason."
(11:51:38 PM) E4D: «All right, bring her in. I'll send Alice down.»
(11:52:06 PM) Ragazzo: Lance shrugs.
(11:52:10 PM) Yox|Laptop: «Understood.» "Ma'am, if you would please stand and come with me." Vance steps forward.
(11:52:18 PM) Maddy: Alice gets up, slinging her rifle and taking her tea. "I'll b-be right back up."
(11:52:42 PM) Sabitsuki: She shuts the case, putting the baggy back in, and then picks up her rifle and the case.
(11:53:18 PM) Ragazzo: "So, what's your name miss? If you don't mind saying."
(11:53:31 PM) Maddy: Alice is down in front soon later.
(11:53:35 PM) Sabitsuki: "Harley."
(11:53:53 PM) Ragazzo: "Good to meet you. Name's Lance Cole."
(11:53:56 PM) Yox|Laptop: Vance and the other two schlubs meet Alice.
(11:54:00 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Vance Harding."
(11:54:48 PM) Maddy: "H-hey. I'm Alice." Alice is holding tea, a sniper rifle and wearing tweed pants and a teal blouse. What a weirdo.
(11:55:34 PM) Sabitsuki: She shoulders the rifle, a SR-25 with a threaded suppressor. "Hey."
(11:56:29 PM) Maddy: "G-guess I'm t-taking you to get c-changed? W-we got plenty of r-rooms, if you'd follow me."
(11:56:30 PM) Yox|Laptop: Vance nods to Alice. "She needs somewhere to get changed, or something."
(11:56:40 PM) Maddy: "I h-heard."
(11:56:42 PM) Yox|Laptop: "Meet where when we're done?"
(11:57:10 PM) Maddy: "Uh, I'm g-going back up to Jason. I'll r-radio you."
(11:57:20 PM) Maddy: She heads off to a room with Harley.
(11:58:11 PM) Ragazzo: Lance leans against a wall outside the room.
(11:58:50 PM) Yox|Laptop: Vance sighs. "Never dull."
(11:58:59 PM) Sabitsuki: As soon as they get in a room, Harley inhales deeply, facing away from Alice and taking off the gas mask first. "Christ, I hate those things." She throws it aside.
(11:59:44 PM) Maddy: She watches via peripherals, not wanting to stare. That's rude. "Y-yeah, me too."
(12:00:56 AM) Sabitsuki: She changes out of the MOPP gear, opens the case again, and withdraws a men's suit and takes her time suiting up, flipping a dark blue tie over the whole ordeal. "Alright." She closes the suitcase again.
(12:02:01 AM) Maddy: Alice turns to her. S-sorry about this whole ordeal. C-can't be too careful, you know."
(12:02:39 AM) Sabitsuki: "Whatever. 'S just business." She shoulders the rifle, and takes the case. "Who am I giving this stuff too?"
(12:03:15 AM) Maddy: "…let's g-go up top." she motions.
(12:03:31 AM) Sabitsuki: Harley follows.
(12:04:28 AM) Maddy: She heads to the roof. "J-jason? This is Harley, s-she needs to pass off her package, figured I'd bring her up here."
(12:05:08 AM) Sabitsuki: "Sir." She shifts the weight of the rifle.
(12:05:41 AM) Yox|Laptop: "So. How're you holding up, Cole?"
(12:06:42 AM) E4D: Jason nods at Alice, indicating where he's standing, and steps over to Harley.
(12:07:05 AM) Sabitsuki: She sets the suitcase down on the ground, opens it, and hands the baggy over to Jason.
(12:07:29 AM) Maddy: Alice stands where Jason was.
(12:07:34 AM) Sabitsuki: She also digs in a pocket for a second, and hands over a folded piece of notebook paper
(12:07:37 AM) Ragazzo: "What?"
(12:07:43 AM) Ragazzo: "Holding up about what?"
(12:07:53 AM) Yox|Laptop: "The end of the world as we knew it."
(12:08:26 AM) Ragazzo: "Eh. I hope my daughter isn't dead."
(12:08:44 AM) Yox|Laptop: "Condolences. It's tough to leave someone behind."
(12:08:46 AM) E4D: Jason unfolds it.
(12:08:56 AM) Ragazzo: "Not really."
(12:09:10 AM) Ragazzo: "She's been on her own for years."
(12:09:19 AM) Yox|Laptop: "Still, you know what I mean."
(12:10:16 AM) Ragazzo: "We'll see."
(12:10:37 AM) E4D: (What's it say?)
(12:11:53 AM) PaulS_laptop: John's rummaging around the hospital sub basement. maybe there's something good? Maybe more condoms?
(12:12:05 AM) E4D: Jason passes the paper to Alice.
(12:12:24 AM) Maddy: Alice takes it, reading it.
(12:12:50 AM) Maddy: "Huh."
(12:12:58 AM) E4D: "Harley? Thanks a lot. This… merchant… he give you anything as a fee?"
(12:13:04 AM) Maddy: "B-better put this s-somewhere safe."
(12:13:50 AM) Sabitsuki: "Told me where you guys were, mostly. Gave me enough food to walk here. I was gonna ask to come with."
(12:14:02 AM) E4D: "Got a lockbox up front in the Piranha. Try to keep it crewed with shooters anyway. Guns are right up top. Makes perfect sense. If something *does* happen, we'll at least be a little ready."
(12:14:25 AM) Maddy: "R-right." she nods.
(12:15:39 AM) E4D: He nods at Harley. "Thanks a lot. We, uh, we can probably hook you up downstairs. We've got some stuff we snatched from target. Got some power here. Showers work."
(12:16:50 AM) Nusquam: Those out front of the hospital hear a sudden beeping coming from the interior of the LAV and Stryker. Sounds almost like an alarm, though for those outside the vehicles, it's not particularly loud.
(12:17:04 AM) Ragazzo: "Hmm."
(12:17:11 AM) Sabitsuki: "Alright, cool. I'll just hang out. Let me know if you need anything." She closes the case and shifts the rifle again, heading downstairs.
(12:17:29 AM) Maddy: Alice watches her go. "S-seems nice."
(12:17:41 AM) Ragazzo: Lance nods to Harley as she comes down.
(12:17:48 AM) Ragazzo: "Hey there."
(12:17:55 AM) Ragazzo: "Nice suit."
(12:18:23 AM) Yox|Laptop: "Hello, Harley. Deliver the package?"
(12:18:29 AM) Yox|Laptop: "And the note?"
(12:19:06 AM) Sabitsuki: "Thanks." She pats the suit down, knocking some dust loose. "And yeah, I did."
(12:19:33 AM) E4D: Jason looks around at the dark city. No trace of light.
(12:19:34 AM) Yox|Laptop: "Alright. Need anything else?"
(12:20:03 AM) Sabitsuki: "Nah, I'm going to find an empty bed and conk out. I've been walking for a couple days."
(12:20:09 AM) Sabitsuki: She presses on.
