Kebab man said that because I was friends with Stella he’ll to cut me deal and only charge me $1500 to investigateT8. That’s half his normal rate he pointed out. I got paid that much once for a bare knuckle fight.
I asked him if I couldn’t afford $800 how did he think I was going to sing $1500? He said that was the best he could do, which is a lie. He could do it for free. That’s the best he could do.
I asked if he could just teach me a couple spells so I could do it myself and he laughed right in my face. Literally laughed I my face. I also pitched helping me in return for my help with something he had going on which he did not even warrant a response.
I thought about the magic alligator wallet that the professor took off me when I showed him the Bessie Love memorabilia. I gave some consideration to stealing it back. But I already lied to the professor’s sad wife a bunch, robbing her on top of that would be too much. I don’t even know for sure that it gets you money, it just seems like what a magic wallet would do.
Instead I went the other way and offered Kebab Man the bullet, and other stuff, proof coat in lieu of cash. He sneered. He asked why he would need a bulletproof coat, why would anyone ever shoot at him? I can think of a couple reasons. I suggested that he could sell it. He laughed at said that was the professor’s thing. That’s how they knew each other.
In the end I did break into the professor’s house and snoop around his office. Just to steal information not stuff.
So it’s okay.
