A week goes by with us having no calls, despite being on duty. Bolt-On discovers that Chen dislikes our team and had arguments with McGuire regarding us. Arbitus decides to go visit McGuire and has to visit IT to get access, at the cost of a handful of SeaHawks tickets. IT takes care of the electronic side of access, but Arbitus has to use both his romantic and persuasive skills to get past a pair of guards, with Bolt-On redirecting the cameras.
Arbitus, with Cowboy in tow, makes it outside McGuire’s cell. McGuire doesn’t have much information to offer, although she maintains her innocence and we believe her. She’s also of the opinion that Chen is up to no good.
Amberdawn receives a ‘coupon’ for a drink special at Yuri's bar. We go to find the elf “Tripwire” from the runner bar we encountered previously when we previously investigated Mr. Bosco. We’re asked to help his friend Rosalind Strutwick who was recently in an accident and needed a kidney removed, and to drop off our copy of Bosco’s records at a nearby church.
Amber Dawn arranges a place for Strutwick to go with one of her religious contacts while Bolt-On forges a transfer order. Arbitus’ stripper contact applies makeup to everyone, making Bolt-On look like the most badass fat orc ever… unfortunately Amber Dawn sees through these amazing Trid-like costumes and corrects them to be more in line with legitimate disguises. Lucent does some swapping of equipment between his truck and Arbitus’ truck, allowing for us to surreptitiously drive away with the patient, which the DocWagon hospital delivers as if nothing out of the ordinary is happening.
During our trip we notice that we’re being followed by a drone. Bolt-On decides he should brick the drone and, upon attempting to do so, soon finds that they’re being followed by even more… both drones and a large armored metro guard vehicle.
Bolt-On bricks the truck while Lucent maneuvers the vehicle expertly enabling Amber Dawn and Cowboy to disable the pursuing drones. Arbitus arranges for a decoy vehicle to meet us in a tunnel and one of the drones has a horrible crash, latching itself onto the decoy vehicle. Lucent u-turns and safely delivers our patient while the decoy vehicle works as intended, leading the metro guard away from us.
Unfortunately, DocWagon connects the dots and we’re forced to lay low, with the help of Tripwire. Strutwick contacts us later and relays her experiences to us: after living with her custom liver for a while, she finds herself awakening early from dialysis and witnesses Chen arranging for her liver to be stolen — and she has record of it.
