OVIEDO, 9:30AM (Dennis; NPCs: Robyn)
Sneaking into the building, Dennis found himself outside of the sniper's nest. "Please don't move," he heard the teen muttering to himself. "Please don't move. Please. Just stay in the trunk. Please."
OVIEDO, 9:00AM (Jack, Otso; NPCs: Ellen)
SHREWSBURY, 3:00AM (Tamati, Violet; NPCs: Abe, Augustus, Herta, Joseph [K.O.] Shelby)
I'm going to hold this scene for a bit until Dennis' is resolved.
When Joseph came around, he was bound wrists and ankles and blind-folded. The elder Lear concured with Herta's assessment that Joseph likely needed to be able to perceive his targets in order to suffocate them, and denying him his sight was the best way to protect the group. "Hi, Joseph," Augustus said. "Let me start by assuring you that we're not looking to harm you."
"Let me go!" Joseph demanded.
"No," Augustus said coolly. "We know what you've been up to. We have evidence, Joseph."
"You don't have-"
"We know you've taken lives. We know why. We know about the drug trials. We know that you're targeting women who participated and gave their children up for adoption."
"You can't prove-"
"We can, Joseph. We've done our homework. What's important now is that you cooperate with us."
"I have a right to counsel."
"You would, if you had been arrested. This was strictly a black ops mission, Joseph. You were incapacitated and removed from your home without your parents or siblings knowing we were even there. We can make it so that they never know what happens to you. We could make it so that they join you. We can make them disappear as well. We're not at that stage yet. We're hoping that you'll cooperate with us--answer some questions we have.
"Are you willing to do that, Joseph? Are you willing to cooperate?"
The boy nodded and Augustus looked to his daughter and her friends to ask the first question.
VALENCIA, 11:35AM (Kas, Lex, Martin; NPCs: Beatrice, Buddy, Fiore, Rusty)
All around them he heard glass breaking: Fiore was shattering every window in the building... and evoking a woman's scream from the floor above them. "Vestige," Fluxx said into the comm. link, "get ze woman out."
As Vestige made her way into the back room of the butcher's shop, the Frenchman made his move...
