Jayce's last run

Chapter 1.5: Hot as Hell and High water
  • The day started as shit and got worse. apparently I got a BTL that left me unconscious and vulnerable. (what the fuck were you thinking Skunk you dumb shit!) I had less money than I expected and Tex decided that beating me would fix it.
  • In his disgust he left me with the Tweedles to go get to the Bus stop. Our mage, Tweedle Dee decided to accompany Tex via the magic world but quickly came back saying there were two people out front.
  • Expecting an ambush we took to the back alley only to find three more waiting for us. Halcyon, ever the decisive woman decided to matters into her hands and starting throwing magic about like it was candy. I was forced to back her up and lay some smack down on them. Sparks was deadly with the shots he got off. Since we were fighting I figured we could take all five and gather some gear, (gotta make up those creds for Tex!) but Sparks was freaking out; certain there were nine more gangers ready to get us. I was able to loot the guns off three from the alley before running; I was forced to turn and fight when they caught my shoulder (damn cyberarm still makes a clicking noise) I tried to get the other two to run while I slowed the pair down but they insisted on helping me. I tried to get the last to run but Sparks had to put him down, the poor dumb go-ganger.
  • After running for about 15 minutes we figured we were not being followed. I found a guy that showed us a place that had been used as a hideout from the X-ers in the past. I was able to call Tex and tell him of our move. While I was sure he was going to sell us out, things seemed legit (you fucking R-tard Skunk, too damned trustworthy) We holed ourselves up in this beat up old shack with a basement. Halcyon was able to repair the damage done to me and Sparks.
  • About that time Tex found a workable break in the wall out of this retarded Z-zone. (the POS also found food and ate with out us the compassion-less prick) I checked out the node and after too many hours I managed an admin account and looked at things. the cameras were stationary on RFID tags I figured I could just shut off or edit the footage when Tex needed me to. I was coming up on another agent scan of the node and couldn’t risk detection to I left. Sparks was off in La-La land dealing with sprites or some other such nonsense that his hocus-pocus can do.
  • Tex handed me a cold congealed bag of noodles, I was able to gag them down in record time (I said a Krill-(Bur)rito you ASS) of course this god-be-damned Z-zone is out to kill us so the Ex-ers show in force to beat the shit out of us, Tex was debating sending Halcyon and Sparks out to get away while we distracted the gang.
  • Walking into the living room I was able to mathematically figure a way to build a hole (thank you arch-a-TORTURE) Sparks said he could help (note: NEVER LET HIM HELP, unless it is with a gun). We half-assed our way out the front while Tex and Halcyon verbally abused them in the back. The smoke was getting real bad (oh I forgot the fuckers set the house on fire) when I finally broke the surface (it was damn hard staying quiet) Sparks felt he needed to take that last bit of “trash” out of the way, which started the collapse of the tunnel (don’t you know what a fucking brace is) so here I was holding things open and abusing Sparks while yelling at Tex to GTFO.
  • Of course the fucking showboat HAD to one up the piss-ant (we don’t gives those shits the satisfaction you moron) which started a fire fight which nearly killed Halcyon. (I will fucking kill you with my bare cyberware Tex for that, you have been warned) I was able to carry her to Doctor Watson’s place (only place I could think of that could have any hope of fixing her up) only to find a girl there. (Dr. Watson’s niece?) In my state of mind she seemed even more retarded than usual Z-zoner. after a small altercation I was able to see to Halcyon’s wounds. (you are so fucking dead Tex) I guess we scared the girl a bit too much because she went from pissing herself to actually growing a backbone, good for her. While she was insulting I can’t 100% blame her. (when I get regular creds I will repay Dr Watson)
  • Halcyon was at lest conscious and mobile, and I was through with this fucking place, so we moved on to the Wall. Tex took us to the break in the fence, I showed Sparks my admin account into the security node. he went in via AR and immediately went limp (..aw fuck… is all I heard) after laying him out on the ground I jumped in after, only to see that he had the hack under control, I jumped out and picked him up in one arm, halcyon in the other and we waded into the water toward the grate.
  • Just as we were on the other side and nearly on the bank did Sparks wake up. (it was a spider, was all he said) We staggered our way to an empty garage away from all the drones, Tex moved on towards the bus stop. (this better be worth it Tex you fucking Buck Rogers!) Halcyon said she wanted to join him so I set us up in the corner laid her on me so she could be comfortable, and fell asleep myself (one fucking thirty in the morning you god damned piece of shit!) around two Tex came back with yet another spirit.
  • apparently the spirit became a bit of a joke for Tex because he kept asking it questions and it responded “No” many times. Tex resorted to Ro-sham-bo with the spirit, which was comical at first, then became hilarious when it started to beat Tex.
  • then this JC showed up and said something about vampires, if I weren’t neck deep in shit I would PAY him so I could kill those freaks….
  • o-o-o-o-o-o-ohhhh-h-h-h-h s-sh-shit-t-t-t g-g-g-godd-d-d-damed s-s-s-s-shakes are ssssstar-r-r-rt-t-ting up again! f-f-f-fuck! I n-n-n-neeeeed another hit…d-d-d-damned body…

" The targets had been casing the site for a number of days now, it was only a matter of time before they made their move. At the time in question, though surveillance at the scene continued to report standard "no movement" it had for every other night of the project, one of the security technicians reported an anomaly in the buildings door control monitor. The grid was notating doors opening and shutting but the cameras didn't reflect that. When site security's com traffic was intercepted and relayed, The assault team was mobilized post haste. As for the performance of the team, it can be assured that the professional conduct of our organization is is of utmost import. Those employees who failed to enact standard regulation director *redacted* approved tactics have been reprimanded. "
~excerpt from ******* report.

It is always comforting to know that the only reason you \almost\ died was because someone didn’t follow regulation!

~Halcyon

What!? no way! Damn it Sparks! Wait, Halcyon! How are you even posting on here!? …let me guess, you convinced Sparks to post for you… It’s the blind leading the blind!

~SkUnK

You could use a Blind leader, most would be more observant than you! :P

~Halcyon

I’d be wondering more how how the hell she know’s what an emoticon is. Did you just kinda talk at him and then stick your tongue out, and then yell at him to include it?

~Austin35

It has come up before! I can’t tell you how long it took me to realize that all that extra punctuation might have been more than a typo!

~Halcyon

I disavow all knowledge of helping Halcyon with her writing as well as helping her understand what emoticons are…

" It is uncanny. from what my team could deduce from the scene, there were unauthorized vehicles on the tracks in addition to some non explosive with the applied force to destroy half the construction drones. evidence suggest gunfire & magic were used to destroy the security drones. It is believed that a malfunction in the construction drones caused a majority of the damage to the tunnel though the evidence of gun battle suggests that the malfunction may have been induced. There is a gap in the feed from the drones that were salvaged though the time stamp that the feeds cutoff matched up perfectly. Due the this and the pile of unmarked bodies sinking into the cement, i submit this suggested plan to revamp tunnel security in the attached file. "

~Excerpt from Deputy Inspector *******, Requisitions Report.

Cause it was \so\ easy the first time! We were lucky to be rescued. Double so to survive those dang robots. I still don’t understand \why\ JC did it, forget about how. between that mask, the ectoplasm and the damn flashbacks the whole thing left me feeling dirty.

-Halcyon

I get the creeps when I think of that mage and his grabby little helpers. :(

~SkUnK

Still not convinced that guys not a cop. I’m gonna put some feelers out once I figure out how bad we need to be dead. And can one of you shut that dog up outside? I would, but these guns are filthy.

~Austin35

I’m not exactly sure he is human, in any sense of the word… understand I am \very\ rarely not sure of things… As for the dog, great and powerful leader, I’ll get cooking!

~Halcyon

Halcyon, you need spirit helpers so I be ‘fly ork’ again.

I feel bad about this one, well, a little bad… It seems like someone should have warned them about our great leaders anger issues!


~Halcyon

I don’t. And it ain’t my fault they don’t teach kids to not stupid around guns these days.

~Austin35

Um, Yeah, Tex? Can we tone back the pillaging and raping? Also I saw this old old trid once, First blood i think its name was. Yeah…you fit John Rambo to a T

~SkUnK

Tone it back? What do you think pruning those weeds did?

~Austin35

Are you refering to plants, great and powerful leader, or gangers? Either way i suppose it counts as a civil service. It is unfortunate that civil servants appear to paid very little.:(

~Halcyon

Don’t mind me, I’ll just fall down drunk right before the battle.
