Much like a certain man on the path of redemption, we have taken in a stray.
Unlike said man, ours was quite unwilling, and nabbing her was something of a chore. But it was Jessica's idea, Jessica's desire, and what Jessica desires, Jessica gets. Have I said the word Jessica enough to hammer that point home yet? Good. I'm done with it. Today was a fucking mess and I'm just plain tired. On top of everything, something's gone wrong with my post and it hasn't gone up like I set it to yesterday. Still working on what's wrong with that.
For now, though, you should know that we have kidnapped Emily. Yes, that Emily. I have to admit, it's a damn good plan on Jessica's part. Yesterday afternoon, we cornered David and his band of misfits, and Andre set off after Emily while Jessica and I distracted Banks himself. That earned poor Andre a gunshot wound to the foot, but I think the bigger bruise is the one to his ego. Suck it up, big man, you got shot by an eight year old. Not that big a deal.
Jessica wants you to know, David, that 'this is it.' If you really want this girl back, if you're really committed to her and to this lifestyle, you'll come get her. Because she sure as shit isn't giving her back to you of her own volition. Trust me. She and Emily haven't stopped sniping at each other since the moment we tossed the little girl into the back of the van and drove off. I have a headache.
