Kingsport, Khazan (1:00 Am)
Albtraum watched as Niko's men carried the last large crate into the unmarked cargo ship "Can I ask you a question Niko?"
"Sure." answered Niko as he sipped the contents of a silver flask.
"Where did you get all this from?"
"Here and there." replied Niko dismissively.
Albtraum turned to Niko and frowned "Niko, what am I getting myself into here?"
Niko emptied the bottle and sighed "From the SLJ."
"WHERE!? Have you lost your mind?" exclaimed Albtraum wincing as his voice echoed around the dock.
"Don't worry Lex. The SLJ busy getting their asses handed to them. By the time they realize it'll be too late." a light flickered on the cargo ship and Niko put his hand on Albtraum's shoulder
"Well bud, that's you. I'll call you when I'm finished here."
Niko bumped fists with his old friend and started to leave the dock when an icicle landed at his feet "Son of bitch."
"Did you really think you'd get away that easily?" announced Zachery as he stepped out of the shadows.
Niko sucked down the contents of his flask and crushed it "What the hell are wearing kid? I know the SLJ is in trouble but this is ridiculous."
"Shut up!" shouted Zachery as he fired three more icicles "Tell me where that ship is going or I'll beat it out of you."
Niko opened and emptied a glass flask and threw it on the ground sending glittering splinters across the floor "Be my guest kid."
