Ok here we go! I'm going to be better about posting from now on and I hope my delays haven't killed anybody's enthusiasm.

Tim I believe you said you'd like to go first and that you're establishing?

Actually Tim chose to resolve and asked us to establish him.

'This is all just so bloody typical. Why is life never easy? ..... Dozo .... That's a damned stupid question Chan-rai. It's because you're heart and soul is with the Yakuza but they needed your body and mind with the Zaibatsu. Best man for the job apparently....well it's been twelve long years! I want back into the clan.' Chan-rai thought all this while stood leaning against one of the net-ports that could be used for public communication, tapping his foot in mild irritation.

Such ports usually gathered dust as the majority of people had personal ports either in their body or on some bit of tech they carried with them. Round here though they were dust-free as this part of town suffered from the anomaly known as "snow", which caused 95% interference with wireless comms. Round here you had to hard-jack to get anything from the cyber. So the terminals were used, if not often then at least more than never. And that suited his purpose perfectly.

Chan-rai hoped she'd turn up soon, or the くそがき would be done getting his face re-constructed and the moment would be lost. Chan-rai chuckled at the memory of what had happened and how fortuitous it was. He'd had one of his Zaibatsu bosses nephews foisted on him for the week. 'Show him the ropes, Chan-Rai.' they'd said. Great!

Half way through the week the entire region had rocked from what at first seemed to be an earthquake, but with the billowing smoke from over Port Luna way it proved not to be. Not ten minutes later his comms had blared priority one and Shinoizawa had ordered them both to the Port to locate a piece of tech that should have been passed into their care.

Walking through the devastation caused by an explosion of some sorts his Other comms had activated and threatened to give him away to dipshit two steps behind. Then fortune smiled on him as the stupid lackey stuck his face into a ragged hole in the side of a crate that had been blown what must have been 50 foot judging by the debris trail. Anyone with brains knows you don't go messing with the tech that gets shipped through here. It bites back if you try to interfere with it. And so he'd had half his face blown off and Chan-Rai could safely take the call from the nee-san Harumi. Seems she wanted the same thing the Zaibatsu did.

And that's why he was now waiting for Morrigan in The Face Place while dipshit got reconstructed. Fortune smiled on him a second time as this was one of the few places that would force her to meet him personally. Assuming she even showed up.....



Sorry that's a long one - I needed the back-story told for things to make sense for Chan-Rai's situation. I think I've left the Resolution quite open.

I'm going to give a White Dice to Harumi please.

and: くそがき = "Little S**t"

Nyx cycles through the thermo-optics and ultraviolet sensors of his night vision goggles again, studying the punk in the corporate suit standing next to the net-port for the umpteenth time.

He keys the subdermal commlink with his tongue and subvocalizes his words through the encrypted channel, "Morrigan, the suit is clear. No signs of anyone following him either..."

As he speaks, he sweeps the vicinity and the other rooftops again. Can't be too safe, here in the shadows. He raises the Gauss-powered Delonghi MK IV Sniper Rifle to his shoulder, looking through the targeting scope at the crosshairs planted on the punk's head.

He mutters, "Just make one wrong move, punk. Just one. It's way past time for my cordite medication."

Morrigan slides through the crowd like a shark through water, resisting the urge to nod and touch her ear as Nyx gives her the ok. She stops her aimless circling and cuts directly toward the suit next to the net-port, approaching him from behind. She focuses on the area she can see, not giving herself away by looking around and trusting in Nyx to watch her back.

OOC Note: I had been thinking of the Fact Place and my position within it to be inside a building, but as I didn't make that clear and both your posts treat the area I am in as outside then so be it - we'll have the place as a shanty shack style area, buildings on buildings so close together as to almost touch - and grotty - think Minority Report)

Chan-Rai had chosen this spot for a number of reasons.

It was well away from the main thoroughfare, amidst the shanty shacks and overhangs of a thousand small and disreputable shops and companies but with only a half dozen accessible on this bit of street. In fact the public net-port was probably the cleanest thing hereabouts (apart from himself of course). People tended to wipe the devices clean having used them - paranoia abounded.

He also chose the spot because the acoustics were perfect. Despite facing one way he could hear the slightest of footfalls from the other. And so he heard Morrigan as she came down the cramped and litter-strewn path. Turning away from her he moved inside the Face Place and in to the anti-chamber. It was empty and well away from the hidden room that held the surgery proper. Dotted around the room was the items available for sale from the "front" business. External Cybernetic enhancements for the face were legal and cheap. Sub-dermals came at a hefty price and the businesses around here could never hope to afford the licence.

Which was the last reason for choosing this dive. Black-market work brought its rewards and it was a good job the Zaibatsu liked to save money and paperwork wherever possible meaning this place was perfect for getting the little twats face re-done and doing business all in one hit.

Nyx smirks when he sees the punk weasel into the plastics parlour. Mentally triggering the smartlink to the sniper rifle, he switches to armour piercing depleted uranium rounds. The ammo should cut right through the cheap and flaking plasticrete and recycled wood materials used to build these buildings.
Switching over to thermal optics, he never takes the crosshairs off the target, even for a split second. In this era of nanosecond margin wired reflexes, a split second opening is all your target needs to escape...

But this is Biff's scene. What would be a good/bad outcome for Chanrai for this scene, Biff?

"He's good, he knew I was coming before he saw me. This smells fishy so stay frosty up there" she subvocalises, as she follows the suit into Face Place.

Priority one will always be to stay alive. Chan-Rai knows what it means to be the between man.

Priority two will be to strike a deal to get the matrix deck.

Nyx responds, "I'm always frosty. Hurry up can see if you can cut a deal. This place was ground zero for the ongoing turf war between the Los Muertos and the Shanghai Tang until a truce 2 weeks ago. I heard one of the Tang-ers got stabbed by a joygirl last night and blamed a Los boy. A gang fight could break out any minute."

Nyx sweeps the area with his optics again. Can't be too safe...

They had met twice before, once before and once after the last job he'd hired her for. But he doubted that she'd remember some random exec. She'd looked exactly the same back then, well - expect that now she had a few more Cyber implants. No doubt they were what kept her looking so young. He wouldn't even like to guess at her age...

So the woman with the frizzy jet black hair and the mocha complexion slid silently through the door. The vibration of the air the only giveaway that the door had even opened. Smiling to himself Chan-Rai remembered her fondness for Turkish Delight. Damn but that stuff was hard to come by these days. He had a stash for just such occasions as this.

Sliding a small carved box, about 3 inches long by 2 inches wide and deep, with it's lid closed, along the counter he was leaning against Chan-Rai said, without turning around, "A present, not a bribe. I know you are above bribes and would not drop to that level. If your friend on the roof would like some too I can arrange that."

If Morrigan showed any sign of surprise at the mention of her companion she did an excellent job of hiding it. Chan-Rai did not explain how he knew. In truth he did not Know she had a partner, but she would be stupid not to have one, and the natural placement of him would be the roof.

壁に耳あり、障子に目あり he thought to himself. (Kabe ni mimi ari shouji me ar *)



I took Morrigan's look from the photo posted OOC.

Morrigan sidles up to the counter, sliding her hip along it and coming to rest a comfortable distance from Chan-Rai.

"If this is what I think it is, then I'm glad I'm the only one here because no way would I be sharing"

She slides the box closer and opens the lid. A smile lights up her face, a genuine smile rarely seen.

"Aha, you devil. How did you remember?"

She picks out a piece of the sweet smelling turkish delight and pops it into her mouth.

And then, in a completely unprofessional moment, her eyes bulge and she starts to choke...

Nyx squints into his thermal sight, seeing only the heat signatures and whatever Morrigan's comm is picking up.

"If this is what I think it is, then I'm glad I'm the only one here because no way would I be sharing"

He sees Morrigan's silhouette bend over... was she examining something on the edge of the counter? What's happening?

"Cough, cough, gurgle...kak!"

"Oh please, Morrigan, get a room. I didn't know this guy used to be one of your joyboys! This is extremely unprofessional...This is not the time or place for a blowj..."

"CACK! COUGH!"

Did someone mention penance?
