"Indeed. What about that pretty waif? You know what you'll suffer, but you have no idea what they'll do if they snatch her from her bed. What if she knew you could have done something to stop that? Do you want to be remembered as a coward?"

Lukasz starts to get agitated. "And they'll put me in the wringer because of you! You guys have no fucking idea what they'll do to me..."

He shakes his head with tears in his eyes.

Mihai sighs - "Truth is, kid, even if we don't mention your name at all, i'm pretty sure they've been keeping an eye regardless. It's not what we wanted, but we've spotted a tail or two setting this up."

He pauses for a beat.

"That being said, we've got some pull with people. We can get you protection if you help us out."

The dealer's eyes widen and he becomes even more agitated. "Protection?" he almost shouts. "The Noze have the fucking Defenders in their pockets! They're going to mutilate me! Deremonda's sake, they're on their way already aren't they? Shit. Shit shit shit."

He puts his head in his hands.

Lukasz begins to wobble and after a moment of hesitation, he runs for the back door.

"No, you get back!" Konrad tosses the bag of tanglefoot he'd been hiding behind his back right at the fleeing kid, guiding it with telekinesis.

Steve readies an action to blast drug boy unconscious with a spell if whatever Mihai and Konrad are doing doesn't work.

Mihai lunges at Lukasz and successfully grabs him, preventing him from even reaching the back door. That is when Konrad throws the tanglefoot bag at the dealer's feet, which deploys a goo that solidifies to the contact of air. Both Lukasz and Mihai are now stuck in it, although Mihai believes he can still move a little.

The young desperately continues to struggle in his arms. Meanwhile, Amber approaches Steve and urgently asks him, "The hell is happening?"

Mihai is none too happy about being stuck in goo, but stows it and tries to untangle the other mess.

"Hey. Hey, calm down!" - he tries to bring Drug Boy back to his senses.

Konrad quickly produces a pair of cuffs and slaps them on the boy's ankles. "Now why'd you do that? What's knocking about inside that thick skull of yours?"

He draws his weapon and slashes at the substance holding Mihai down.

Steve shuts the door again and addresses Amber at whisper level. "Mihai and Konrad are trying to question him but he got scared and tried to book it. Your brother grabbed him and Konrad threw his tanglefoot bag for good measure. Now the boy has some cuffs on his ankles, Konrad is trying to free your brother, and Mihai is trying to calm the guy down."

Lukasz continues to fiercely struggle in Mihai's arms but with the manacles on his ankles, he fails to break free. "Let me go!"

Meanwhile, Konrad breaks the goo with his weapon in one strike.

Amber sighs and curses under her breath before returning to the window to keep watch.

Mihai doesn't let go - "Use your head, kid! What do you think is waiting for you out there? They'll track your every move the moment you run out the door!"

Konrad sheathes the blade. "They won't give you a chance to speak. You wouldn't get two words out."

The young man continues to wrestle for a few more seconds but soon realizes it's futile and calms down. He's now limp in Mihai's arms.

Mihai sits Lukasz down on the nearby stairway, then gives him the waterskin - "Here, drink. It'll calm you down."

Lukasz slowly takes the waterskin and anxiously stares at the back door for a moment. He then drinks a few sips of water.

Mihai waits for him to drink before speaking up - "Ok, so i had a shit way with words just now... Anyway, listen up. First thing, nobody is gonna torture you to death. You're still in danger, but they couldn't get elaborate with how they silence you while we're still guarding you."

He pauses a moment, to let it sink in.

"Second, we're not going to the Defenders. We're going to our client on this job, and they've got no love for them either. You play ball and tell us what you know, i ask them to keep you safe. You have my word."

Steve goes back to the door and cracks it again so he can listen. He's as quiet as possible so as not to disturb the going's on which of course means he was louder than last time.

"You can't keep me safe," the dealer replies without energy. "This is Odwaz! They can snatch or take out anyone they want. They're not fucking amateurs!"

He turns his head towards the inner door, having just noticed that it's half-open again. From this angle however, Steve can only see Konrad's back.

"So leave." From the sound of it, Konrad wants him to.
