"Its not often i get to portray a over the top villian. The meet was nothing special.. The job on the other hand was. The J asked us to perform a PR stunt for him, attack his lead actor of the movie with intent to knock him out and have it appear as real as we could. We agreed after discussing the price and then began setting out to do a little recon of the "battlefield" but was interrupted by a diffrent offer. Some bloke wanted to pay us to kill the lead actor instead. Of cause we turned him down, we are professional runners after all. But nothing much else happend, but come the actual day we were ready. The plan of attack was simple, one of us would be transformed into an elephant through the use of magic. Then i'd ride ontop of the elephant into the arena doing my best Villian impression, on the way in we were almost spotted. But my quick thinking landed 2 gel rounds into the chest of both guards moving up on us, knocking them both out. I then had the clever idea to.. "Announce our arrival" to the rest of the place, and then it was time for the elephant entry. I have never had this much fun on the job in probly ever. We did our part of the job, knocked out the mark and one of his guards aswell but then suddenly a car strode up. Apperently the fucker who called us after the meet with the J hired Nullnode runners to do his work. We quickly got to fighting, after a bit of fighting we finally knocked them all out and without any harm comming to the Mark. I decided that the bad blood between the Haven and NullNode didnt need to end with more people dead or incarcerated, so i loaded them all into their car and drove them to someplace in the barrens where i lightly tended to their wounds, made sure they wouldnt die if i left them and then i left. I got paid and the team split up. Still to this day i smile remembering it"
