Snippet 4

Interrogation Room, QBS ArchAngel, Axiom System.

Julianna slammed Doka against the wall, holding him by his collar. “You’d better tell me what I want to know, bitch-ass, before I get medieval on you!”

“Please don’t kill me!” screamed Doka in sheer horror.

Julianna snarled, pressing him further against the wall.  “Tell me who your supplier is!”

“I don’t know!” insisted Doka. “They have the weapons shipped to us anonymously! We just put the money into an account. I don’t know their names!”

She let go, suddenly, and he fell to the floor. “What account?”

He cringed, ducking under his hands. “I-It’s a foreign bank. The Trids run it. They have a strict privacy policy, so all the big organizations use them. But I—”

“Give me the account number,” ordered Julianna.

He gulped. “I don’t know it off the top of my—”

She squatted down and looked him directly in the eyes. “You’re going to tell me the number you use,” she told him, suddenly calm. “If you don’t, I’m going to cut off your leg—” She touched his ankle. “—and I’m going to beat you to death with it.”

“Y-You wouldn’t really do that…would you?”

“Do you want to find out, Doka?”

He hesitated, then shook his head.

“Good, because I would,” she said, matter-of-factly. “And trust me when I tell you, you’d be getting off easy.”

“Although I believe you’ll keep your word, I can’t help you because I don’t have the account number memorized.”

“Tell me something else then. Tell me where we can find Vas.”

Doka blinked up at her, a calm expression on his face. “I can’t tell you that either.”
