June 26th
9:00 am

There is a light rain outside.  The overcast cloud bank causes the old laundry mat to appear more dismal than usual.  The old coin machines are loud, a few needing new belts.  The attendant in the back watches through the yellowed window.  When a patron comes in he will handle the exchange of paper/card money for coins.  Several of the individuals in the facility grumble as the damp weather is causing the dryers to need an extra cycle. 

Outside, pedestrians pass by the store front in a rush with their heads down.  The few with umbrellas walk a bit slower as they check their phones from time to time.  Traffic is light at this time of morning.  The usual transient population is tucked away in their makeshift homes in an effort to stay dry.  The sidewalk vendors have put up small tents over their carts.  The cafe's have closed their outdoor tables leaving the streets mostly free of crowds.

Jacob & Racheal pull up across the street. Taking out a range finder, Jacob'll scan the area for 'undesirables'. Its magnifier should help him scan the nearby street, ally, and inside the building.

"I know this ain't the way you wanted to spend your day off. Thanks for joining me. The fat guy makes me uncomfortable. I'm half expecting him to have a heart attack from the exertion of picking his nose. The old man's fun to fuck with. The bartender's just weird as fuck and the young girl is adorable. You're gonna like her."

He puts the range finder back in its bag and hops out of the car. He opens the trunk and opens the compartment at the bottom. He checks his pistols and grabs one for Racheal as well. Putting the range finder in its place, he closes the hatch, grabs the umbrella, and then closes and locks the trunk.

He'll walk around to the passanger side door and opens it for her. Opening the umbrella before she gets out, he escorts her across the street making sure to help her across any major puddles. Before opening the door to let her inside, Jacob will get in front of her with his back to the door.

"Here. Take this just in case."

He puts the small pistol (a subcompact .45) in her hand. Once she puts it away, he'll turn around and open the door for her. He'll nod at Winnie.

"Hey bartender. Where's everyone else?"

She looks at you with a bored expression and says, "Looks like we're the first ones here." She will start scrolling through her phone

Mike will shake his hat free from the water droplets, exposing a mostly bald head with a few stragglers. His previous night's hard expression with bloodshot eyes is replaces with a softer, more jovial smile.

In a Midwestern accent, "Hey there! Winnie, Jacob. Don't ya know a cloudy day is all the more for a smile?"

Jacob will open his mouth to speak, but Racheal will preemptively smack him and then steps forward, in front of Jacob.

"Good morning. I assume you're Mike. I'm Racheal, Jacob's better half."

She smirks at the last bit as if it's a bit of a running joke between her and Jacob.

"Oh, yes ma'am." Looking at Jacob for a moment and then back to Racheal. In a light hearted tone "maybe if you were around more often, he wouldn't be scarring people's nieces."

*Mike steps aside and nudges Lexi ahead*

Jacob rolls his eyes and turns around to face the Coke machine when Racheal makes her jab. When Mike makes his comment, he flips him the bird briefly.

When Lexi steps forward, Racheal's smile glows.

"Jacob mentioned you too."

She'll nudge Jacob.

"You're right, she is precious."

Jacob turns around and hands out cans of soda to those that want one. Once all that want a drink have one, Jacob and Racheal sit down. She quietly sips her Diet Coke.

"So, where's our Fearless Leader?"

“ who’s that “? He motions at the unfamiliar female.

Jacob puts his drink in his lap.

“Racheal, meet Retired Officer Bronson. Retired Officer Bronson, this is Racheal. She pays attention better than me.”

Racheal laughs and stands as she offers her hand.

“Pleasure to meet you in person finally. I’ve heard you mentioned around the Precinct.”
