Hard Core Leverage series, part II
"So, who's our in?" Nate asked.
"I actually met this guy once, a long-ass time ago. Name's Billy Tallent," Hardison said in his 'briefing voice' (so-named by Parker) as he put pictures up on the screen.
"I know him!" Parker said at the same time that Eliot said, "I know that guy."
"The hell?" Hardison interrupted himself. "How do y'all know this guy?"
"Oh, I had sex with him once," Parker said matter-of-factly.
Hardison's eyes went a little wide. "Right, okay. Eliot?"
"I was working at a punk club as a bouncer for a little while," was all Eliot said. And then he growled. It sounded like there might be a lot more to that story.
"Hardison, what's your story?" Nate asks, obviously already considering how all of this will affect The Plan.
"Uh, well, I was kind of a fan back when he was with his band Hard Core Logo. I met them after a show once." Hardison sits down and leans back in his chair. "But seriously. What the hell? This is creepy."
In which Eliot tries to break up a fight between Joe & Billy and gets punched in the face for his trouble. Fun little vignette. Part two of the three part series, but reads just as well as a standalone.
