Doul: Wh-aa? *shoots a half-afraid, half-suspicious glance at Ira and veers left towards the gate* I've got keys for it, so why would we have to scale it? Besides, that'd look even more suspicious.
Taryn: Not like we're not -all- on the security cameras already. But that's a bridge we'll have to cross when we come to it for now.
Billy: *looks expectantly at the fence and keeps moving forward while trying to look everywhere at once when he hears Taryn's comment about security cameras*
Garret: *curls is lip in annoyance. Taryn had a point, it was likely they were being watched anyways. Which sucked. But there was nothing they could do right now.* Yeah, I guess so. *stumbles for a step or two, but recovers enought to fake health again*
Lisette: *keeps her distance still, regardless of cameras she still doesn't want to freak Doul out more than necessary*
Ira: *leads Doul up to the gate and waits for him to unlock it, scanning the yard beyond while he waits, looking for any sign of other guards or personnel and seeing no one yet*
Doul: *fumbles and finally manages to unlock the the gate, holding it open for everyone to pass through first* The parking arcade is in the basement, so we'll need to head inside and down the elevators...
Taryn: *heads forward, leaving Ira and Doul by the gate to close up, and advances towards the complex doors* Is there anything we should be cautious of? Guards we should be aware of? Anything you haven't told us about?
Billy: *moves forward through the gate, hoping that they will be able to leave this place, looking expectantly at the guard, waiting to see what he has to say*
Garret: *shuffles through the gate, not liking where Doul is leading them. It seems like prime places for an ambush. Still, he grits his teeth and bears it, hoping its just paranoia and not premonition* How are you holding up kid? *he asks Billy once they're through the gate*
Lisette: *pauses as she nears the gate and see's Ira and Doul waiting. With a deep breath, she begins to move forward. Tailing didn't seem much of an option anymore* All is clear behind us Ira... so far. *she speaks as she passes through the gate, keeping an eye on Doul and trying not to show how terrifed she really is right now*
Ira: *saluts at Lisette before nudging Doul to lock the gate after them* Good work, dollface. Now then, to the getaway car! *pulls Doul along with him*
Doul: *locks the gate and then stumbles as Ira pulls on their invisible connection* Look, I already told you, I don't know where exactly the other guards are. They're supposed to be on the move like me. But, once you get in through the doors, the elevator is just on the left hand side...
Taryn: Do we need a security key to get through the building? Is there a security guard manning the desk? Come on, Mr. Doul, your ass is on the line here anyways, you might as well co-operate and avoid more pain. We want to get through this as quickly as possible, and then you'll never hear from us again.
Billy: *looking at Garret* Uh...I'm ok I guess. I'm just looking forward to getting out of this place and finding something to eat.
Garret: *nods but doesn't say anything more. He just looks over his shoulder at Lisette and smiles slightly, looks like Doul didn't freak out. It was also nice to see Lisette wasn't glowing. Which meant either she was cool and calm, or getting better at controlling her panic*
Lisette: *was really focussing on not glowing. The raw willpower it was taking left her senses a bit dull. She was amazing herself by holding it off this long though.* The faster we get out of here, the happier I'll be. *not noticing, she almost stumbles over a piece of broken asphalt. Stooping, she picks up a piece the size of a walnut and fiddles with it as she walks*
Ira: *pushes Doul back tot he front of the group, so that he can lead the way in* Alright, everyone be on guard here... less open space means harder to keep sights on everything...
Doul: *fumbles with his security card and opens up the outer doors and then points to where the elevators are* There's security desks on some of the higher clearance levels, but i'm just an S Class, I don't get to see those parts of the complex... *leads them inside a modern-looking building - all steel and concrete and banked florescent lighting overhead. This level is clearly a warehouse, for packing and shipping goods, with a few personnel at the far side working without looking up. Doul pauses briefly looking towards them before waving them towards the left and inserting his card into the security slot*
Taryn: *keeps close, not wanting to blatantly ask questions in the presence of other site personnel, instead she keeps an eye on the space, picking out te materials and the colours incase she needs to shift quickly*
Billy: *seeing the other employees working across the wharehouse he quickly moves towards the elevators*
Garret: *follows as inconspicuously as possible, which is tough since none of them look like guards or employees* I really don't like this. Any way we can speed things up even more?
Lisette: *still concentrating and fiddling with the peice of asphalt, which she does not notice is starting to glow slightly* Yeah, I don't like being this vulnerable. It makes me... nervous. *she shoots a look to Ira with that "you know what that means" kind of look as she moves quickly to the elevators*
Ira: This parking arcade of yours is just out these doors when we get to the right floor, right? Like, no maze with retinal scanners and martial prowess, and skill-testing questions, right? *glances at Lisette and gives her a reassuring wink*
Doul: What? *frowns at Ira with no sense of humour at all and shakes his head* No, it's just down on B4. Believe me, I want to get rid of you guys as soon as I can... Why would I be leading you all over hell's half-acre?
Taryn: *watches the illuminated lights on the elevator bar move down to M on the display with some impatience* I somehow feel like we should really be taking the stairs.
Billy: *looking at Taryn* Uh...I like that idea, the stairs might be better. *steps back a couple of paces to see if he can spot the door sto the stairs*
Garret: *he doesn't say a word, but he agrees as well. The elevator just seems like a bad idea. But Doul has a point, why would he lead them all of hells-half-acre when his safetly was on the line* As much as I hate to say it, lets give the guy the benefit of the doubt. The elevator would be the fastest way down. *sighs*
Lisette: *the chunk of asphalt is glowing a little brighter and she looks impatient, her brow starting to bead with sweat* Can we just get going already?
Ira: Ding! *in time with the elevator's like sound* Alright, everyone, pile in nice and cozy... What's this elevator's max. capacity anyway? *steps in, dragging Doul with him and peers at the plaque* We're good to like...fifteen people, so we should be fine... *grins at them easily, as if to remind them all to stay calm*
Doul: *is hauled into the elevator with a tug* Urk! Would you stop doing that? *hisses under his breath* It feels gross! *inserts his pass key into the slot and presses B4, as he said*
Taryn: *steps in, feeling relieved that there's no one inside the elevator when it came to Main.* Okay, so far, so good. Let's go... *but her voice is tentative, and she glances at Garret to see how he's doing*
Billy: *steps into the elevator quickly with everyone else*
Garret: *his face is growing more and more pale as things drag on, and his movements are sluggish at best, but he's trying to hide it as best her can. Scratching at the stubble on his chin, he catches Taryn looking at him. He lifts his hand to say that he's alright without actually saying it.* We're almost there. *shifts to beside Taryn in the elevator and grabs her hand, giving a quick squeeze*
Lisette" *still hasn't noticed the glowing rock in her hand. She climbs into the elevator with the others and wipes the beads of sweat away with her free hand*
Ira: *watches the counter moving down as he hums some elevator Muzak, then as the doors are opening he says* Welcome to B4, please keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle until it comes to a complete --- Shit. *with the doors fully open, there is a man standing behind a row of guards armed with pistols and shotguns*
