Synopsis Adam sends Ash to kidnap Logan.
Date October 1, 2009

Biddy Flannigan's Irish Pub

Ambient lighting blankets the establishment in a soft luminescence, glowing in tones of appealing orange from the front face of the bar and low hanging light fixtures overhead. Old style brick walls given the pub an appealing depth, reflecting the tone of lights in a more amber hue down upon the lengths of the polished, wooden floors. The bar counter of lacquered dark wood stretches along the northern wall, the forefront for shelves of numerous liquors and the substantially sized LCD televisions spaced liberally behind it. The screens flicker with the latest games and news as the labeled spirit bottles wink from lighted shelves with a beckon of their own. Barstools and high tables welcome tipsy patrons to their support, scattered with throughout the barroom with a few wedge into the darker, quieter, and more secretive recesses. Over the bar are a few banners of sports teams, most notably one of English football club Manchester United.

The thick wooden door to the west is fitted with a single neon sign sponsored by one of the brews on tap, glowing in the door's center window to shed its light onto the sidewalk outside and summoning in new customers when the bar is open for business.

Adam is waiting at Biddy's, having contacted Ash to tell them they had to meet. Communication with Adam has been spotty since the announcement that Kaylee disappeared. But at the moment, he seems to simply be sitting and readint eh paper, rather than fretting over anything. The evening rush hasn't quite started, so the bar is fairly empty.

Ash makes his way into Biddy's. Ash looks… rough. He's got a split lip, and a bandage over his right eye. He doesn't look pissed or anything to signify he might have been attacked. His left leg has a bit of a limp to it as he heads towards the bar. He looks over and spots Adam, turning then to head the man's way, his footsteps slow.

Adam arches a brow at the appearance of the man. He frowns as he studies him and of course motions to the seat across from him. "You look a little rough, Ash. What exactly was this about?"

Ash looks down at himself before his shoulders shrug slowly, lifting up and then dropping again. "Went and found one of the fighting rings like I used to, but this one caters to evolved. I've fought there before. This one just happened to be quite a bit tougher." He smirks a bit, sliding down into the offered seat. "What's up Adam? Haven't been hearing much from your end."

Adam arches a brow at the fight club comment, but doesn't actually add his own comment on that. He says, "It's been a rough few days. Having to expel spies and looking for Kaylee and looking for whoever encouraged Kaylee to leave." he drums his fingertips upon the surface of the table, "Which has slowed me down on progress on other matters."

Ash arches a brow slowly. "Expel spies? Who was a spy? Or rather… how many who's and who…" He lets it go with a light chuckle, nodding his head slowly. "Well, I didn't know she was planning on leaving. There anyone she's been spending more time around than others? That she normally wouldn't be?" He leans back in his chair, the man's face serious. He cares about Kaylee, not like Adam does, but still he does. "Well, you know I'm here Adam. If you need help tell me."

Adam shakes his head, "It's not important now. But I'll keep you informed in case it does get important." he pauses, "I think Mr. Grimalkin and Mr. Winters are coming to the end of their tenures as well. I've near learned all I need to learn from them." he pauses a moment, "Except I still don't know Mr. Winter's power. So, there's that to learn." he pauses, "But this isn't about any of that, yet." he glances at Ash, "I need you to kidnap someone."

Ash nods his head, the motion slow. He's being kept out of the loop, and it bugs him, but he doesn't let it interfere with him doing his job. He folds his arms over his broad chest, leaning back in his seat a bit more, tilting it up on it's hind legs. "Well, I've not seen Grim in a long while, and Brian…" He makes a little face and just shakes his head, not bothering to continue that line of discussion. "Kidnap… alright. Who, where, and when?" He doesn't ask why, that doesn't matter, just the important questions are voiced.

Adam mms, "A man named John Logan. He runs the Burlesque and can likely be found there. Take Bob and Tony," unevolved henchmen number one and number two, "You can't let anyone know it's you. So steal a car and invest in some ski masks." he pauses, "He has the power to cancel powers through some sort of biochemical manipulations, so he'll have to be taken by surprise." he opens his coat and slides over a gun of sorts, "This is a Company issue tranq gun, shoots five darts and puts down just about any Evolved. Use this. I need him alive…though worse for the wear is ok. We need information from him." he pauses, "He has a bodyguard and a henchman named Satoru…half Japanese kid with a chip on his shoulder….can turn things to bone…I'm not entirely sure the extent of that. You may well need to take them out to get to Logan."

Ash listens to all of the directions and instructions. The gun is looked at with a hard glare, but he does take it, slipping it away into hiding on his person. He listens to everything, his head tilting forwards. "It'll get done. And don't worry, I've got an outfit already prepared for just this sort of thing. I put it together for the other stuff I was going to be doing for you. And nulling my powers doesn't worry me. I was dangerous before them, I'll be dangerous without them." He shrugs a little bit. "I'll make it happen. Anyone else you want in on this? Or just me?" the non evolved henchmen don't seem to count in Ash's mind.

That or he's just meaning other evolved.

Adam shakes his head, "No. Just you." he frowns, "With people looking to infiltrate the organization, I need to compartmentalize as much as possible. I would trust Huruma or Samuel, but both of them are on other missions for me. Sabrina would be no help…" he shakes his head, "This is all on you. Anyone else and we risk a leak and we need this to be as silent as possible. Because in the end, I don't want this kidnapping getting back to us. You understand?"

Ash nods his head, slowly. He purses his lips as he leans back, his eyes curious and thoughtful. "Not a problem. On the it not getting back to us part. I'll make sure it happens." he pulls in a light breath and then lets it out, his lips curling up at the corners into a smile as he stares at Adam. "And no, Sabrina would be no help." He chuckles, his eyes lighting up with the same amusement. "When does this need to be done by?"

Adam purses his lips a moment, thoughtful. He tilts his head a bit and says, "I'd like it done as soon as possible. Because once I get this John Logan business squared away, I can move you into the next phase, which will involved a more…" he mms, "Organized and severe strike against Linderman. But…each step takes time. Though, do keep in mind, I may have need for you to do something at any given time…something.." he shrugs, apparently referring back to the former discussion on possible traitors.

Ash leans forwards, his arms resting on the edge of the table, a thoughtful look on his features. "I see. Well, then I will make it happen as soon as I can. I'll let you know when it's done." He smiles a touch before he pushes up from the table. "But if I'm going to get it done then I need to get on top of things."

Adam nods, "Alright. Keep in touch." he says, "I want to know how the plan goes. We'll decide where to take him later, I'm not entirely sure right now where that'll be. It'll depend on if we do the torturing for information ourselves or not."

Ash tilts his head forwards. He lifts his hand up to brush his fingers back through his hair. "Where do youw ant me to take him to keep him until you get there?" He looks about ready to head out, just waiting for this last bit of info.

Adam purses his lips a moment, "To the docks. Take him somewhere burnt out, empty warehouse or whatever." he says.

Ash turns then and heads for the door, leaving the bar, but he stops at the door and looks back towards Adam. "I'll call you when I have him in hand." He pushes open the door and slips out into the night of New York.
