Default The pickup (Jake, Wed. 4/4/07)

After your dismissal from the master bedroom, it doesn't take long for you catch up with the Seneschal.

"Ah, you are looking for the cash, yes? Everything is in order for the delivery, then?"

"Indeed. I've got my back-up lined up and the location is set. I just need the cash and I can go and complete the transaction."

Bonnie signals for you to follow her, and she leads you to a second-floor room that's about halfway in size between the master bedroom and Bobby's room. It's large enough to have a walk-in closet, and Bonnie enters, presumably to retrieve the cash for tonight's transaction. The room is pretty tidy; there's a simple but well-crafted dresser with a bottle of Chanel No. 5 and several strings of pearls on top of it, and a queen-size bed made up with linen sheets and a couple of thin blankets.

((Do you have dice rolls? Jake's got a twitchy urge and he's acutely aware that it would be a distinctly bad idea right now...))

EDIT -- ((Actually, scratch that -- Jake takes a peep around the room, then, as he looks about nonchalantly, appreciating his surroundings Toreador style, he'll filch a string of pearls.))

((OK, he's able to do so pretty easily. Bonnie re-emerges from the walk-in closet with a briefcase about 20 seconds after the pilfering.))

"Here we are," she says, opening the briefcase. "The agreed upon amount. Good luck." The Seneschal closes the briefcase and hands it to you, none the wiser about anything that has just happened in the bedroom, to the best of your ability to determine.

Jake nods acknowledgment and goes to round up/wait for the rest of his crew.

It's certainly feasible. Also, there are two vans that need to be gotten away from the battle area. You can do some quick signaling to get Mick to toss you the keys to one van, and he'll get in the other and follow you.

Just go ahead and give as much or little description as you want for Jake's retreat from the riverside. When I know where he ends up, I'll know what I can put in my next post in this thread.

Jake catches Mick's eye and points to the remaining vans, as he runs towards one, holding his hand out to catch the keys.

"C'mon!", he calls, pulling his escort along into the van as he catches the hastily tossed keys out of the air and scrambles into the driver's seat. He starts up the van, guns the engine and makes for the dock and, hopefully, cover.

"Zack! These things have turrets and machine guns! See if we're loaded and get ready!"

Zack doesn't come to the van immediately, as he and Dee Dee seem to be trying to coordinate to engage the beastie in melee. Jake can if he wishes drive the van and check the machine gun himself (it's loaded), and fire it off after driving to a more remote position.

Make it so... Jake won't jog Zack or Dee Dee's arms if it looks like they know what they're doing. He still peels out hell-bent for leather and looks for a safish spot from which to deliver machinegun fire.
