>>>>>[Thank you Irish for bringing my "repetitions" to my
knowledge. It
appears that the deck I "found" has all sorts of problems with it, the
least of all echoing itself. Or at least that's what Rage told me. But
hey, I throw spells, not programs. Everything should be fixed by now
though. Thanks again.
By the way, I would strongly suggest getting your friends the hell out of
the Brotherhoods grasp. All the rumors insects and similar such is,
well, shall we say, more than just rumors.
Second by the way. You may want to stock up on someting more potent than
your normal off the shelf Raid (tm). I've always used industrial
strength commercial brands unavailable to the general public, and those
did work, but not as well as you might expect. That was when I had to
use it, in those certain situations I'm sure you can guess at.]<<<<<

The sec camera overlooks an alley. A Bulldog van is parked near the
building's rear entrance. A small man in baggy clothes is running
back and forth from the building to the van, carrying boxes.

He slips, dropping one of the boxes, tools and chips clatter to the

He loads the last box and lowers a ramp from the van. Several small
drones, Snoopers and Skimmers mostly, run up the ramp into the van.
By now, it could only be Rumormonger, fleeing another flop.

With the last drone aboard, he pushed the ramp back into the van and
reaches for the driver's door.

Headlights arc across the alley. Rumormonger raises an arm to protect
his eyes, then lowers it as the front of a car edges into the
picture, dimming its lights.

Two more men, both tall and gaunt, both wearing tattered long coats
step out of the car: Teutone Bleu and Marksanspensah?


Another camera, mounted at the other end of the alley, shows the
two arrivals approaching the cab of the Bulldog. Rumormonger
back-pedals, trying to get away from the other two.

As he stumbles and falls to the street, Teutone and Mark squat down,
talking to him.

More headlights swing into the alley. This time from the other end.


This car squeals to a stop and two more men jump out, power crackling
around both of them. Teutone and Mark step back, hands raised in
supplication, trying to explain the situation.


Marksanspensah can just be overheard:
"Have we got a deal for you."]<<<<<
