"But we scanned the device, and the delivery man left," Secant concluded. "So there's no problem."

Lyn tapped her index fingers together. "But, this OneMinus Cos seemed pretty serious..."

"Oh!" Secant snapped her fingers.  "There was also an explosive," she added. "Inside the building.  We neutralized that earlier too."

"Ah?" Lyn smiled. "Well, that's a relief..."

"So, you'd best move along now," the brunette concluded, holstering her weapon. "I'll watch closely. If there's another attempt, wouldn't want you to be caught in the crossfire."

Lyn nodded hesitantly. "I... but would I be able to talk to Cotangent afterwards though? Or leave her a message?"

"I'll mention you were here. She'll contact you if she wants," Secant said. Her increasingly brusque tone implied that this was as good as Lyn was going to get, so with a nod and a hesitant smile, the blonde turned to head back down the street.

She had barely turned the corner when a hand reached out, grabbed her arm, and pulled her into the shadow of an entryway.

Lyn opened her mouth to cry out, only to have it covered by a hand. "Hush!" came a familiar voice from behind her. "Don't talk, or I'll gag you. And don't look at me, though I've got no sight gags."
