Becca drags after her father, almost grateful for the pain and distraction of bone grinding on bone in her knee

She does try to make a detour and retrieve her gun if it wound up anywhere retrievable after she got disarmed, but otherwise follows

The knee hurts, but it's still functional. Drawing her into the home, Dad says "Lie down in the autodoc while we talk."

The autodoc hums quietly as she lays down, strange lights playing over the knee as nanites are injected with a quiet hiss, together with assorted quickheals and painkillers. (Damage is fully healed in about 16 hours). The machine then wraps a flexible bandage around the knee and beeps. With the speedheal, she'll be -3 Ref for the next week but she'll heal real quick.

"That was Victor Holt. Big shot in Militech research and development. There was a reason we let him backstage."

He shakes his head. "He collects human subjects for testing. He was one of his own first test cases. Almost twenty years ago. He hasn't gotten any saner since then, either."

"You have to leave. Tonight. We'll pull what cash we can to send you off, but you have to go."

Becca winces " . . I . . I'm sorry, I didn't think . . . with me gone, then he won't come after the rest of us?"

" . . . and where can I go?"

"He may still come after us. Or not. We have some favors to call in; it's a tossup. But you are going to need to leave with the crowd. Before he can task a satellite to find you, so that it's almost impossible to get away." He says.

"He hands her a clear piece of plexiglass, about twice the thickness of a credit card but other than that the same size and shape. This is a coded contact card. Say the word "Heaven" and it will give you a one use contact code for a fixer named Heaven. She's expensive, and she drives a hard bargain, but she is independent. When you get clear, get in touch with her and tell her you need a job and a place to stay, both off the grid."

He hugs her at that point, and says "You need to go. Quickly! Take Franchi's bike."

Becca takes the card and returns his hug tightly. "Right . . . I'll go . . "

She then pulls away and turns, blinking back forming tears

"Well . . I did want to go on an adventure"

Becca pulls her hat low over her eyes and heads out of the RV

With that, she grabs the bike and boosts out with the crowd, headed for the city. It's about twenty miles in, and if she cries, the wind blasts the tears from her face. She crosses from desert to stinking marsh a half dozen times on the way, until she comes to a little gas station with a sign for a public vterm.

Becca pulls up at the vterm, and takes out the card. "Heaven" she tells it

And wonders what kind of name Heaven is

After she speaks the name, the card blurs for a moment, and an address and time form: Leroy's Bar and Grill, 3pm. Tell Leroy you're there for the back room.

((What time is it, and does Becca know how to get to this Leroy's Bar and Grill?))

If Becca doesn't know where it is, she'll go into the gas station and try to buy a local map

It's about 2am, and she can get directions from the vterm.
