"the gangers are my problem, and it may surprise you but a more rigid order than bow to the ones that can kill you can instill mutual trust, the church militant of the flock is no less capable of surviving than anyone else, they just find better reasons. i can handle gangs is what i'm saying, putting out the fires of inferno is my life goal after all, it would not aid that goal if i couldn't smother flames."

"All right, fair, fair… tell you what, how's a 10% up-front sound? 500,000 sound good?"


@Coriolanus
"Funny, that's exactly what I thought when I signed up. Turns out the answer was your paycheck, your days off, your ability to find another job, your retirement, your dreams, your bodily autonomy, your right to die- do you think I signed up for my tour because I wanted to become half a decapitated head and a decrepit sack of organs trapped in a weapon platform I'm still expected to make payments on?"


@Cerebrate
He seems genuinely impressed by the pitch "I see why people look to you, then. You're hired. What do you need?"

"Might need a bit more than 10%, again its gonna be a madhouse. This is hot cargo going through an area which can accurately be described as a warzone. And you guys are no doubt planning to have me go right in to the middle of it. I gotta cover my own tail because I know nothing will go according to plan here."

She fidgets in her seat, adjusting her tie "Um… m-military contracts in the days of the Wars were known to, um, dog-ear some additional waivers and sub-contracts that weren't entirely necessary for military service, but were nevertheless there for recruits to sign as part of the draft process…" you can feel the war hound's gaze on her like a targeting laser- surprisingly, not literally "…but we're offering you a civilian contract; an office job, working in Corporate cybersecurity and networking, given your portfolio, or…"

Her voice is cracking, not quite out of personal guilt so much as fear of the cyborg. She takes a moment to swallow and calm herself

"…or, if you'd prefer, you could simply opt for a lump sum or Corporate stock? The former is a more stable investment with the most immediate return, but the latter has the potential for growth beyond what the lump sum offers if you can handle your portfolio well."

"Thats more like it~" She'd give him a chuckle, idly playing with her hair and glancing over at ARES during her call. "So tell me when and where we're meeting to discuss the details of our little operation and I'll be there. A word of advice, don't plan everything down to the letter, those plans that rely on perfect timing and hoping everything just falls into place are the ones that evereyone dies in."

ARES's progress bar completes and he begins waking back up from his maintenance fugue, his face display booting up in its original, simplistic form before glitching and warping into his more expressive state. He returns Fortuna's glance, head tilted slightly in an expression of curiosity

"Awesome. Meet us at the warehouse markets on 7th, look for my truck. Bring whatever, just be careful about being followed."

"7th thats…." She'd grab a tablet looking up the address before continuing. "Alright yeah, let me put my pants back on and I'll go head over there. Can't give you an ETA because traffic…and if I do get a tail I'll have to shake em or deal with it. Whatever you get the idea. I'll see you around."

After hanging up that call she'd hop up for real this time, digging around for some clothes. "ARES, get your shotgun. We're going with that local gang. He says he has a plan, not sure if its a good one just yet but I doubt he'd try to stab me in the back. He's too busy trying to get in my pants to bother."

Merely taking his stylus out again, he scrawls his manu propria.

"…If there was better quality of life and aug-update coverage for 'longer' contracts, I woulda chosen that."

"I think I'll take the stocks, miss."

"I'm actually surprised he can afford you. Last I remember seeing him he struck me as the small-time sort." ARES says while getting his shotgun and munitions "Is he paying up-front?"


@Coriolanus
The Jenny seems to relax a bit as the contract verifies his signature and chosen options, compiling it into a copy-protected file that downloads itself onto his device, alongside a file containing the time and address for where he will join the Corporate caravan

"Well, your status as a shareholder might make you eligible for such benefits for future work, and with your returns you might even be able to afford passage to the Upper Crust on Corp-sponsored transport! Just, ahem" she glances at the cyborg bartender a moment before continuing in a lower voice "please remember to read any contracts and agreements thoroughly before signing; the Corps can't legally do anything to you without your express written consent. A lot of Corporate contractors work on commission, if you get my drift."

"No, I'm not getting it, and I'll be sure to buy myself an NAI for this kind of stuff. I get headaches over the mental gymnastics I need to do with grasping 'contractese' semantics, y'know… But seriously ma'am, if the longer-term ones you can dish out are really that insidious, you should clarify that yourself, or, fuckin' hell Miss, think of hiring yourself a trustworthy bodyguard."

"I could do that myself for when you're working, but in exchange, I myself need a case handler. I can't keep up the solo act forever; more and more I feel like I need to make expansions into something greater eventually."

"I'm a bit surprised too, getting 2.5 mil in advance, another 2.5 after this is all done. Could have a counterfeiting place going but if they're good fakes we can still use that. Just can't take it directly to the bank."

"Done. I probably shouldn't share too many details about the route itself, but I can give you a priority list of gangs our security detail is most concerned about…" he consults his personal device while jotting down some names and notes on a scrap of paper "Here you go. Crude, I know, but I was ordered not to transmit any information on this issue wirelessly if I could help it."


@Coriolanus
"…that's fair. Normally we Jacks and Jennies are supposed to become case handlers of sorts for 'regulars', but… I'm kinda new at this. why couldn't I be a defense attourney…"

"I would hope it's real money. I don't want to find out that there's a limit to how many 'counterfeit detected' alerts I can get before it triggers Loss Prevention. Oh, and I should probably drive, just to be safe. You mentioned he's on 7th?"

"Yeah its a warehouse on 7th street. Told me to look for his car, it'll come to me when I see it." She'd let out another yawn as she got herself dressed…and got her various carry guns ready to go, along with some various other small stuff. "So what do you think ARES, take the armored 6x6 or we gonna ride in style and take the AV?"

Rising from his seat with his device and cable, he pockets away his stylus, but reaches for something else.

"Well, then, until the stint with the sneakernet is done, besides honing your tradecraft skills,"

Drawing something larger from his jacket, he reveals a detached holster, it's connector-ended webbing reeled unto several spools after release, & within that holster, the shark's own laser-pulser sidearm, placing it upon her briefcase with a light thud.

"-connect it to any device, and it'll give a user manual."

"Since we'll be working together, beautiful, take it as collateral in my absence, as well as something to keep yourself safe with here in Inferno; I doubt a connection with your employers is enough to always keep the unhinged at bay… But before I go, one more thing; does that file you gave also tell me how to contact you specifically, or can I just meet you here again, if this bar & grill's proprietor will allow it?"

"Hmm, good question. Resilience vs. maneuverability… yeah, I think we should play it safe and go with the 6x6."


@Coriolanus
She is speechless for a moment upon seeing his weapon offered to her, but regains her composure to answer his question "Well, it's really more of a 'Don't call us, we'll call you' type thing, but… we'll be in touch." she closes her briefcase and stands up "…if you complete your contract, that is."

"I will, but, if there's no more assets you need to fork contracts to, then, as shareholder—in other words, your boss," With an intimidating simper, he takes an authoritative stride*, albeit somewhat comical, what with this 7ft-tall, heavily-armed shark now pacing with airs of highfalutiness, past the fox toward the exit. "you're to personally contact me when it's done, but for now, you take the rest of the night off, miss. Don't you worry, I'll get my part of the job done."

Leaving the grill-bar, he then looks for the contract's date and location for him to show up at, having the screen shown entoptically right into his eyes, rather than holographically, keeping it's view hidden away from any curious bystanders.

He will be joining the convoy tomorrow in the Factory District, where Corp security has managed to keep the gangs at bay for now. Perhaps they intend to hide the sneakerware amid the normal outgoing shipments?

"just the black hats? your new PR department must be doing something right."
he gave a brief chuckle, the corps had, by their very nature, a bad rep in general, anyone striking even so much as a mild annoyance to them was a neighborhood hero.
"we will see your transports through safely, a little reminder that we're all people, and the ones down here could use a friend up there."

Fortuna would give ARES a short nod as she finished gathering all of her stuff up, then getting her armored 6x6 out of the trailer of her rig. Was a bit of a drive going from their beachfront parking spot over to the warehouses but Fortuna would let ARES drive for 90% of the trip, only insisting that she take over once they were in the general area.

Now she just had to find which warehouse it was specifically…he did say he parked his ride outside of it.

"I'm sure you do, especially with all the bad ones getting in the way."

The Jack stands up and readies himself to leave

"And by the way, yes, we do, in fact, have an amazing PR team."

And with that he vanishes into the crowd and the noise


@Sky
While she doesn't immediately recognize the heavily modified truck as she approaches it, the enthusiasm of the driver flagging her down as he honks its horn and flashes its lights at her approach draws her attention that said driver is, in fact, her contact.

Currently parked in front of an open warehouse wherein various members of his gang are arming themselves and their own vehicles.
