Heavy Gear - Beyond the Horizon

Retirement Day

Bold as Lions - Session 2

In the lobby of the Heart of O’ the City Hotel the detectives find Haley Jones with a knife in the chest. Mr. Jones paces outside nervously. Mrs. Jones was frightened in the corner. A small crowd of people are being to gather. Lienna, Diego, and Cindy begin by checking out the body. They scan the site, examine the body, and Cindy determines she wants to know the owner of the knife. Lienna goes to speak to Mrs. Jones, who is non-responsive and has a serious cut on her hand.

Cindy interviews the Mr. Jones, who testifies Mrs. Jones got in an argument with Haley and killed her.

Cindy Baxter: whisper to Diego, “we need to arrest Mrs. Jones.”
(From Diego): I move to arrest Ms. Jones.

Diego: You have the right to remain silent when questioned. Anything you say will be held against you.
You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.
If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you before any questioning, if you wish.
If you decide to answer any questions now, without an attorney present, you will still have the right to stop answering at any time until you talk to an attorney.

Cindy interviews Bambi who corroborates the argument. Bambi said she heard an argument, but didn’t’ know the reason. Also, she didn’t know why anyone would be mad at Haley. Cindy gives Bambi her biz-card if she has anymore.

The team departs the scene.

Lienna meets with Police Chief Lagoaski to turn in her paperwork. He reminds her retirement is not a requirement which she declines. She looks to say her final goodbyes, following cookie crumb sitings to the conference room.

Confetti pops! “Surprise!” Lienna party had been planned since she first announced her retirement. Streamers, a banner, food, drinks and cake fill the room. Diego looms protectively over the cake.

Cindy heads to the toilet and notices a man in the reception area. Curious she moves to speak to the hereto unknown man, Dillon Driagon. They each lie regarding their reasons for being in the building. Both recognize the lie and Dillon admits to wanting to speak to Lienna, who Cindy calls to the reception area. Asking for a private meeting, Dillon wants to address a case Leon Baxter was investigating.
