Drake, Taylor and Ginger decide that it is time to confront Anton Lokosic about his role in the death of Jennifer Christopher. The suspect that this confrontation may turn into a brawl so they head to Randall’s place with a bribe of beer in hand to recruit him as muscle. Figuring they didn’t come to watch the football game Randall invites them in so he can ask them what they want. They explain to him that they’re going to confront Anton Lokosic and he reluctantly agrees to go with them.
They pile into Taylor’s car and Randall’s truck and head off to the Blind Pig. The group stops before they arrive at the Blind Pig to discuss their strategy for dealing with the White Court Vampire. The group’s first instinct is to strut into the bar and start busting heads. Randall convinces them that their first instinct is probably a bad one. They eventually decide that they’re going to skulk around outside the bar and wait until Anton leaves. Then they plan on following his car long enough for Taylor to hex the car into breaking down.
The first part of the plan goes off without a hitch. Once the car fails Anton pulls over to the side of the road, gets out of his car and pulls out his cell phone to call for help. The group quickly gets out of their cars as they pull up beside him. Drake starts the confrontation by demanding answers regarding Jennifer Christopher’s death. Anton doesn’t even get a chance to answer before Randall punches him but fails to do much damage. Anton is angered by the attack and strikes at Taylor who then pops open a bottle of beer and proceeds blast Anton with it using the magic Loam his gifted her with. The magical attack leaves a pretty nasty cut in the man’s chest. Ginger quickly transforms into her coyote form…
Drake continues to ask a question regarding Jennifer’s death but Anton to respond. Randall grabs the vampire and puts him into a mighty bear hug. Rather than trying to break the grapple Anton then attempts to incite despair in Randall but the half-Yeti manages to whether his emotional attack. Taylor then sends the remaining beer up Anton’s nose causing him to sputter while trying to breathe. Ginger then slashes at Anton with her claws leaving a nasty wound.
Drake continues to talk to Anton while lashing out at him with a bolt of force. The bolt hits him but does not do a heavy amount of damage. Randal tightens his grip on the vampire busting his ribs in the process. Anton attempts to incite despair in Ginger before being taken out by another claw attack.
Once they have subdued Anton the group drags him into a nearby park to interrogate him. At first he is confident that the group doesn’t have the guts to do him further harm and refuses to give up information. When Randal starts to dig a grave for Anton his lips loosen a bit. To help his memory even further Ginger sits on his stomach and growls at him. Eventually Anton reveals that he he’d been introduced to the girl by Lester Lokosic at the Blind Pig and had accidentally killed the girl by feeding from her. He goes on to explain that for some reason his brother Lester wanted him to keep close ties on the girl and her family. In order to make it easier for him to do this (and meet with the girl) he negotiated with the Anne for permission to move through her territory in the Nevernever. He swears that he doesn’t know why his brother was interested in the girl and does not know why Catherine Christoper was under the effects of mind magic.
Once the interrogation is done Anton begs the group to let him go. This sparks of a moral quandary since Taylor wants to kill him on the spot and Randal thinks he should be handed over to some kind of authorities. While the moral debate rages between the two, Drake kills Anton with a blast of force to the head. This has everyone in the group thinking that maybe Drake is crazier then they initially thought. Randal is angry by what has occurred claiming that he never went with them to kill the man. Taylor tries to convince them that they’ve done nothing wrong since Anton was not a man but a monster. He seems unconvinced but decides not to press the argument. He is smart enough to point out that they need to get rid of the body before his death is discovered by the police. They then consign Anton Lokosic body into the mysterious hands of Loam the Dragon.
