The runners meet their Johnson at The Blue Note, a local jazz club and runner bar. Before the meet, Jazz is recognized by some of the musicians playing a set and arrives late to the actual late to the meeting as he his convinced to place a set. Mildly annoyed by the tardiness, the Johnson explains that his daughter has been kidnapped and we wants the runners to get her back. She was last seen at the Neo-Retro, a hot new club in Bellevue, and an ork looked like he was taking her somewhere. The runners agree to the job and go on the hunt. Headed to the swank area, Jazz has to upgrade Ken's attireto help in into the non-meta friendly scene. 3L T1GR3 handles the matrix duties to get more information about the club and targets, but finds that the footage has been edited already. Jazz and Songbird work the room trying to find infor while Ken hangs at the bar. As the team find some info from a drug dealer and talismonger, an incident at the bar happens that causes Ken to lose his cool. Havoc breaks loose, Jazz, Ken and Tigre have to subdue the club security, and the runners make their escape through various means.
With some leads in hand, the runners head to the Barrens to talk with some members of the Crimson Crush. After a few drinks at a local bar with a few of their members, the team tracks the ork to a Crimson Crush hangout. Going in, they learn that their target actually ran away and is trying to get hostage money from her father to run away and start a new life for her and the ork. The runners are moved by this and agree to help the pair escape... as long as they move some product for Jazz. They agree, make a video to tell her father the situation and take their leave. The runners go back to the father, enrage him with the news, and head home ahppy having helped out love. A job well done.
