"The question is," he says, gesturing at the two files side by side, "whether it's worth gambling on this man's sense of obligation. Or his family's."

He's sitting at one end of the couch in Jordie's living room, studying the tiled display on his datareader screen.

Jordie is lying on his back in the middle of the floor, tossing a small rubber ball in the air over and over.

Just like old times.

"It's not likely that the place is going to get firebombed." He doesn't sound like he's kidding. "Extra scrutiny on whoever builds on the property afterward. So what's there to lose, from the clinic's perspective?"
dr_j: (no i dare not speak its name)

Up goes the ball. "There's always finding a loophole in the loophole." And again. "I still haven't given up on that."
dr_j: (that's all for questions)

Jordie aims a beady look at him.

"I couldn't tell you. I'm not the one with the insight into the criminal mindset."
dr_j: (and I fascinate myself)

[personal profile] dr_j 2010-05-11 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
He goes back to throwing the ball in the air.

"Whatever." Beat. "No, I don't think attempting things your way will hurt the clinic. And I certainly don't care if they come after me, because as we know, I have no sense of self-preservation. However."

Up goes the ball.

"Has it occurred to you that you're making yourself a target?"
dr_j: (and I fascinate myself)

[personal profile] dr_j 2010-05-11 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
Another throw. Another catch.

"There are at least three people I could think of who probably wish you wouldn't."
dr_j: (in prison or in hell)

"Considering I wasn't supposed to be able to make the connection out to Beaumonde, and we're talking yakuza?" Simon gets another beady look. "If you were them, wouldn't you be extremely interested in someone who could ferret their way through your considerably complex shell game of false identities, empty storefronts, and threatening messages to actually find you? And wouldn't you be likely to consider someone who could do that a potential threat to your business, regardless of which side he's technically on?"

"Well, yeah, but come on." The ball goes up again. "Who'd care if they hit me? You think I'd let you even contemplate contacting them yourself if I could think of a way around using your data?"
dr_j: (hey listen I just work here)

[personal profile] dr_j 2010-05-12 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
Jordie waves a hand. "They'd get over it. And you're ignoring the real point."
dr_j: (drill a tiny hole into your head)

[personal profile] dr_j 2010-05-12 03:47 am (UTC)(link)
"You don't exactly have a good reason to get involved," he points out. "And several compelling reasons not to get involved."
dr_j: (come to set fire to your glamour)

[personal profile] dr_j 2010-05-12 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
Silence.






"I hate you," Jordie says, and he tosses the ball in the air again. "If you get me hunted down by your sister or your wife over the fact that you're dead, we will probably mutually haunt each other until the end of existence."
dr_j: (maybe you're not invited)

[personal profile] dr_j 2010-05-12 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah, whatever."

The ball goes on the coffee table. Jordie tucks his arms behind his head and stares at the ceiling. "I can see what I can do about getting you a scrambled channel. They'll probably still be able to figure out it's coming from Capital City, but not the exact location."

"Assuming you can even get them." Jordie closes his eyes. "Which isn't guaranteed."
dr_j: (six foot tall and east coast bred)

Without stirring: "I wonder why you're being so cryptic."
