217 W. Koch St.
Bozeman, MT 59715
The building is on the corner of Koch and Third. The apartment is at the top of the stairs.
Rainbow pushed Marcet against the bar. "Crawl down there and around the corner of the bar," he said. "That will put the bulk of the bar between us and the shooter."
"I'm headed to the end of the bar," Michelle said over the radio.
"Stay down," Rainbow advised her.
Rainbow started crawling along the bar. When Marcet did not come along he turned to him, "Look, we're here to protect you."
"Didn't you see that shot that was fired?" Rainbow asked.
"Look at this," he continued, picking a bit of bloody flesh off of Marcet's jacket, "where do you think this came from?"
"Hey, you've knocked me and the guy I was talking to down, then shoved me against the bar."
"Fine," Rainbow retorted, "you're free to go. Get up and walk away. Personally, I don't really care, but I get paid if you live, and I don't get paid if you die, and I'd rather get paid.
"Now, if you want to live, I'd recommend you move toward that end of the bar, away from the shooter," Rainbow finished, grabbing the nape of Marcet's jacket and pushing him toward the end of the bar.
"Well, drek," Michelle's voice came over the radio, "the shooter's not there anymore. He could be lot in the crowd, but I suspect he went out the door, since it's just swinging shut."
"Front or back?" Giggy asked.
"Back of the club," Michelle replied.
"So, front of the building," Giggy responded.
Jack started lumbering off toward the front of the building.
"What's the shooter look like?" Giggy asked.
"Won't be helpful," Michelle said, "but he's an ork, and he's wearing black."
"Well, its something," Giggy huffed. Looking over to where Jack was still crossing the parking lot, he continued, "Jack, why don't you wait here and watch for someone coming through the alley, I'll go around front."
Back in the club, Marcet stood after being shoved again by Rainbow. he straightened his jacket, and began to straighten his hair, when he realized it was wet from something other than sweat. He looked at his hand as Rainbow stood behind him.
Seeing what was happening from her vantage point at the end f the bar, Michelle suggested they just disguise Marcet and walk right out the front door. Toward this end, she jumped up onto the bar, took two strides, and bent over, giving a broad-chested man wearing a classy hat a good view down her blouse.
Michelle grabbed a drink off the bar and, handing it to the man in front of her, grabbed his hat. "Trade ya," she said with a smirk and a wink.
The man put the drink down, and tried to scoop Michelle off the bar into his arms, but she was able to scoot away. Taking a step to her right, she put the had on Marcet, as the man lunged through Rainbow to try to grab Michelle again.
Rainbow grabbed the man's wrist and used his momentum to drop him to the floor. In the same motion, he grabbed Michelle's hip and lowered her to the floor between himself and Marcet.
"Play nice," Michelle said to the man, looking down at him around Rainbow as they started away from te bar. part of the crows was finally realizing what had happened, but couldn't do much since they were packed together so tight.
"There's nothing out front," Giggy's voice came over the radio.
"All right," Rainbow said, "we're coming out." He signaled his autopilot to bring the van around to the club entrance.
Jack saw the van start moving, and ran for it. Reaching for the door, he tripped, missing it.
On the way through the crowd, Rainbow took his coat off and put it over Marcet's blazer. "It'll make you stand out less."
They got down stairs and out through the door. The security guys at the door didn't even bat an eye as they stepped by. The van pulled up front and stopped. Rainbow pulled Marcet around toward the driver's door.
"What's going on?" Giggy asked over the radio.
Michelle stepped toward the passenger door, and our of the corner of her eye, she saw a motion. She turned as a woman stepped out of the line of people waiting to get in and raised a gun out from under her vest. Jack leapt across the alley toward the woman and swung down with his axe, using all the power of his massive weight and strong frame behind the axe. Jack pulled his axe from her still body as the gun fell from her hand. People were giving him wide berth.
Michelle shrugged and reached out to open the door of the van, and joined Rainbow and Marcet inside. Jack joined them a moment later. "We're on our way to pick you up, Giggy," Michelle said over the radio.
Rainbow started the van and pulled through the alley, as stunned bystanders weren't sure what to do about the woman who had just been cut in half.
"No," Giggy replied, "I've got my bike in the lot, I'll ride after you."
"All right," Michelle continued, "then what's the plan?"
"We go to the other party," Giggy replied.
"Personally, I'd say hit a no-tell motel," Michelle suggested.
"I'd hit a no-tell motel with ya," Marcet said to Michelle.
"Um... no," Michelle replied, "but you do need to get cleaned up."
"Look, it would be a shame to let all those techie girls at the party go without even seeing Marcet," Giggy said. "We did tell them he'd be there."
Though there was a large bonfire burning between some of the buildings (Giggy was pretty sure he saw a boat, a couch, and a refrigerator all in the pile), there were very few people there. Giggy pulled up, but not too close to the unbearable heat of the fire, checked with the two DJs, and then grabbed one of the kegs and left.
"Yeah, lets go someplace else," he said over the radio as he pulled back onto the street in front of the van.
"If we need to go someplace, and Marcet wants to go to a club, we could always go to Galaxy over by the old cathedral," Michelle suggested.
"Sounds good," Giggy replied, "How do we get there?"
"Well, first, Marcet and Rainbow both need a change of clothes."
"Just a sec," Giggy said, "I'll find someplace." A couple of minutes later, he came over the radio again, "There's a 24-hour Macy's down the street here on the left. We can get something there."
The stopped in and got some new clothes for Marcet, Rainbow wouldn't need any, as they were stopping by his place so he and Marcet could be cleaned up before going out somewhere.
They went out for a few hours, and Rainbow noticed that Marcet didn't seem to be getting drunk, no matter how much he as drinking. Fortunately, Jack had been drinking most of Rainbow's drinks, so Rainbow wasn't more than buzzed when they left. They went back to Rainbow's flat for the night, and Jack and Michelle stayed there to insure that Marcet didn't leave.
Of course, they had no reason to worry about that, as he was still there at ten when Rainbow came in to wake him. Marcet was grumpy and didn't want to get up, so Rainbow found out what he wanted for breakfast, and went out and got it. Then went back and woke Marcet about an hour later to tell him breakfast was ready, and they had someone they wanted him to meet, so ne needed to get up and get ready.
They got in the van before Marcet was aware enough to figure out what was going on. Rainbow had called Jethro while he was out getting breakfast, and learned the drop off point. They drove there and Rainbow pulled around the back. They got out and went up and knocked on the door. An ork answered it, and looked Rainbow up and down, then looked to Michelle.
"whaddya want?" the Ork aksed.
"We're here to meet Jethro," Rainbow replied.
The ork grunted,and then swung the door open and made an exaggerated gesture welcoming them into the open back room.
Jethro was standing there, and, seeing Rainbow, walked over to him and handed him a credstick. "Thanks, Rainbow. That will be all."
Michelle and Giggy looked at each other, then turned around and walked out, followed by Jack and Rainbow. They got in the van and Rainbow slotted the stick, and split it between them.
