“Since you only have 3 runners available, I thought it might help to have a 4th. This is Grace.” Laurent points to the young woman standing off to the side of the church who has seemingly been ignoring the meeting.
Grace drops the hood on her outfit, lifts her sunglasses and waves.
“She is a decker and martial artist.”, Laurent finishes.
Alan leans over towards Jax, “Not bad looking. I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eating rice crackers.”
Alan’s commlink starts playing some k-pop song. He frantically jabs buttons and finally gives up, handing the phone to Jax.
“Its just a message”, then Jax starts to read it, “You sexist/racist limey bastard. First you’d never get me into bed. Second, I don’t eat in bed. Third if you ever tried to throw me out of anywhere, you’d wake up on the ground questioning your decision making abilities.”
Jax looks over at Grace and then back to Alan, “I think I like her!”
We finished our interrogation of the mage, grabbed the commlinks and started back up the stairs. While I start packing up the servers, André says, “You should join our matrix gaming group. I play with LethalE and …”
“LethalE? I think I’ve played against her. Madskillz. And you know her? Like RL?”
“But you’re so old. You her uncle or something?”
“No, we did protection detail for her and her brother.”
André’s commlink vibrates, he opens the video message. A sexy pink cat curtsies and says “I’d be honoured!”
