Alan has secured Zufar al Tahir and is on his way to turn the man into Sunny. She’s not answering her commlink though, so Alan needs to find some place to sit on their captive until he hears from her. Only she never calls back, and when he tries again Sunny’s number is disconnected. Fearing that they may not get paid, Alan and Xio try to find a way to get in contact with her.
>>>>> [We’re sorry, but the number you have reached is not in service at this time. Please check the number or try your call again later. Thank you. Goodbye.] <<<<<

With both Lund and Trollface in the (multiple) hands of Dr. Feel Good and his scaly associate, Sunny has finally managed to rest. But it does nothing to lighten the oppressive weight of the data chip she carries. Sunny feels the walls closing in around her tighter than the body drawer she slept in. If Lund’s wrong, at least they can still turn him over. If he’s right though, it’ll be time for her to lay low for a while.
>>>>> [Oh, how exciting! Did you hear that, Mother? Not one, but TWO patients in need of my medical expertise. Oh, I do hope that I get to do surgery. No! Not like that! Not doing whatever I fancy like with my children outside. I mean delicate work. PAID work, Mother. Dr. Lewis, would you kindly clear that body off the other table? We’ll need the space and I don’t want our guests thinking they’ve come to a chop shop. Oh! I should put my face on. They’ll be here any minute now!] <<<<<

With Carston Lund barely conscious in the back seat, Sunny and Trollface drive off into the night to turn him over and get paid. Lund begs for his life, which they would normally ignore. He claims that Corp puppet masters are really in charge of the Enclave. And he can prove it. They don’t have much time, and Sunny must decide whether to assume that he’ll say anything to live or trust that there is much more going on than she bargained for.

The runners have fallen into the darkness below the Loblaw’s after Sunny’s trap failed to capture Carston Lund. Instead, he set a counter trap of his own, leaving only Trollface on the surface to stop their target from escaping. Sunny and the others have to find their way through the underground back topside. Before they can catch their breath though, the second part of Lund’s trap activates. Sunny, Maddie, Odysseus and Pollux have very little time to decide how to escape before what lurks below finds them.
>>>>> [I need a body. I’d make one myself but I can’t bring more heat down on me. It’d be nice if it was fresh, but at this point I’m not picky, I just have to have it before 6 tonight. I have a meeting with someone and I need to make an example of them.] <<<<<

As Alan and Xio track down and capture Zufar al Tahir for Sunny, she’s hired more runners to help her trap the last piece of the arson conspiracy. A meeting’s been set up with Carston Lund in a rundown part of Tacoma under the guise of high paying job. He thinks he’s being hired as an explosives expert for a team of runners. In reality Odysseus, Pollux, and Maddie are there to make sure he can’t slip away. With Lund and al Tahir both caught, Sunny and Trollface will be able to cash in big time.

Must be willing to travel and available for long term job, four to six weeks under the radar. Documents will be provided.

Alan and Xio are hard at work tracking down their quarry. After a long day (and night) of legwork, they’ve narrowed down the possibilities to a small number of outliers that don’t match up to the fake IDs they have for Zufar al Tahir. They are in day two of their 48 hour window, but Xio seems to have an idea of who made the IDs. She has his Matrix handle, and if they can find the creator they may be able to convince the person to tell them which ID al Tahir will be using for himself, and which are the decoys. They have a long way to go, and a short time to get there before their window of opportunity closes.
>>>>> [I have no record of your ticket purchase, Mr. Shubert. That’s the strangest thing. Let me see your ticket, please. And do you remember your confirmation number? This is the first time I’ve ever seen an error like this. Not to worry, Mr. Shubert, we’ll honor your ticket. I’ve updated the logs to add you back into the system. Enjoy your trip.] <<<<<

Sunny has 48 hours to catch Zufar al Tahir before the brains behind the arsons skips town and disappears for good. She needs to get through the information they gathered from his home and figure out what ID he’s using out of the five active SINs he has to choose from. She hires Alan and Xio to get the job done. They don’t have much time, but Sunny is confident that if anyone can find al Tahir, it will be those two.

Life doesn’t seem to slow down for Odysseus. The more he takes on the less he seems to get paid. In fact, helping Jessica stay safe and hidden from her mother, Mrs. Van Zant, is costing him a good amount of nuyen. There are plenty of ways to settle a debt though. Some being more pleasant, some being more profitable, but they’re always dirty.
>>>>> [What do you mean they’re all dead? And she got away? Well you need to put more people on the street and get looking for her. I’d try her lawyer first, that slitch blocked me with injunctions. She might know where Jessica is.] <<<<<

Sunny’s hired on Xio and Odysseus to help her get into al Tahir’s home. Xio to break in, Odysseus to get them out if things get difficult. The window of opportunity to find the accountant who stole from the Enclave is closing. Al Tahir is going to get out of the city with enough money to buy a new identity. If they don’t manage to find what she needs, the whole investigation may fall apart.

We all make mistakes, but leaving your deck on after a data heist from a Corp shouldn’t be one of them. Unfortunately Xiomara had to find out the hard way when rent-a-cops came to arrest her just as she was moving into a new place. But she’s not too worried. She’s got Kuma close at hand and an active deck that the cops didn’t think to shut down before transferring her and her stuff to the Jackson building for questioning. While the goons in uniform play their good cop/bad cop game, Xio is busy hacking their office. She just needs to keep them distracted for a little while. What better way to do that then by giving them all the information they ask for, and a lot more they didn’t?
