“Woah, alright, hold on.” Kate watched her party raise their guns up. “Lair or not, we cant just shoot him. He’s still a person,” she mumbled to JJ. She turned her attention back to the stranger, “you said you can provide more proof. Let’s see it.”

Seeing the situation escalate, Jess ducks slightly lower in the car as to provide herself a little more cover, and is now aiming right at Owen's shoulder. She would aim for the head but something told her that her new companions wouldn't appreciate just dropping the guy.

Owen's hand darted to his side, pulling his VP, as he raised it he pulled the slide back just enough to catch a glimpse of brass in the chamber, then put the stock to his shoulder, all in under a second. He pointed the VP at JJ, prestaging the trigger, "It doesn't have to be like this. 18."
A second or so passed. It sounded like a single shot, but the gun ejected three empty casings. Owen then lowered his gun, "I have your proof."
He hadn't shot JJ, but instead a rotter a block down the road. He began walking toward his kill, speaking one more word, "15."

J.J was close to putting her finger on her own trigger, however she had seen the slight movement before the bullets flew past her head, she was a trained eye, so she didn't miss his aim moving a few inches and the way his gaze went beyond her and the group. As she lowered her gun slowly, she looked at the other two before she stepped towards the man,"Where?"she asked, she didn't just want a file, she wanted real live proof, something she could see for her eyes, not just words on a paper, anyone could put words on a paper!

As she waited for an answer she looked around before throwing another question at him,"What did you do? To get this information?"she wondered how he even got a file like that, she had seen places be overrunned , there was never enough time to stop and look for someone or help someone, let alone risk your own life for a file.

Throwing her hands over her head, Kate dropped to the floor at the sound of gun shots. She shakily stood back up, trying to get her bearings. “May I see the file? We can get you your ammo, but I’d like to read the abstract for myself first before we give you anything.” She called out to him.

Owen kneeled down next to the dead rotter, leaning in close to it's head. He then pulled back and stayed kneeled, not moving, silently counting to himself.

the sounds of the shots put dom on edge silently moving behind kate he placed his hand on her shoulder "i dont like this one bit, keep your distance for now" he said quietly to her taking his hand off her shoulder.

Owen finally moved, ripping off a piece of the rotter's white tee shirt. He set the piece of shirt under the rotter's head, then he ran his hand through the rotter's hair, and what looked like small black twigs fell onto the shirt piece, "And I thought 'brought me on board' would tell you that I was part of the research team."

J.J crept up behind the man, crouching down slightly behind him she began to watch closely, after a few moments she asked,"What am I waiting for here?"she asked with a raised eyebrow, hoping to get an answer. This was getting weird for Jaylyn, and she had seen some pretty weird shit in her time, but now she was beginning to think the man was fucking her around. Like this was some joke she had time for, standing up she moved around to stand beside the rotter, looking down she watched him take something from the Z's hair.

"Those little black things. Those are a cordycep parasitoid capable of producing electricity. These ones are dead, though. The spores aren't anything to be worried about. They're unstable without a stabilizing protein, like keratin or haptocorrin. What happens is it kills its host, then uses it's bioelectric properties to hijack the nervous system. It really is a fascinating organism."
