Jarvan nodded, he had to focus now, they had just reached a door, outside of which two burly and surly looking bouncers stood guard. They had finally reached Badgers hideaway, Jarvan stopped in front of the two guys and smiled casually
"Hey guys, is Badger in?"
The two bouncers looked at one another, then back at Jarvan and Arin, they didn't look happy
"Hello Jarvan, you know that Badger won't be happy to see you, not after what happened last time"
Jarvan wasn't happy to hear that, in fact he felt a shot of fear bolt through him, he had heard about Badgers temper and his tendency to make people disappear when they felt out of favour with him
"Now come on guys, surely he'll make time to see me right?"
The bouncers looked at one another again, the look suggesting that they were going to get annoyed quickly
"I'll go in and check with him"
One of the bouncers went inside, closing the door behind him, the other standing in front of the closed door to show that no one could enter. Jarvan and Arin are waiting for a good while when all of a sudden, the bouncer from before reappears through the door; he doesn't look happy
"Badger wants to see you Jarvan... Alone, your little friend will have to wait with us. Don't worry, we'll make sure he doesn't come to any harm out here"
The bouncers stand aside and open the door, Jarvan looks at Arin and nods, then steps through the door into darkness. The door closes behind him, shutting him in a realm of pitch blackness.
"Hello Jarvan, it's been a long time, what brings you to my humble abode?"
Jarvan knows the voice instantly, Badger was in the room with him.
"Hey there Badger, oh you know, thought I would come and check in with my old buddy, see if you needed any work doing, that sort of thing, how have you been keeping?"
Jarvan is really nervous, his hands are sweating and a bead of swear trickles down the side of his face, but he dare not move. All of a sudden, a burst of light as a torch is lit, blinding Jarvan for a moment. Once his eyes adjust to the dim light, he sees Badger sat at a table, with an empty chair in front of him, almost like he is in an office.
"Please, take a seat Jarvan, we have much to discuss"
Jarvan walks over slowly, noting that there are several people hiding in the dim shadows around them, keeping guard over their boss while providing the bonus of intimidating Jarvan and making him even more nervous.
Once he is in the seat, Badger sighs, leans forward and the two begin to talk.
