Ch2-2e Back at the student union

Spoiler:
I'm assuming after some swift phone calls you get back together at the BSU Bar. However, feel free to relocate to the car or elsewhere if you think it wiser.

Liz walks into the BSU Bar with Clay and looks around for some free seats, preferably somewhere they won't easily be overheard.

Greg walked into the BSU Bar next to Jacob and glanced around. The look on his face was that of being perplexed. They had found out some interesting information, but he just wasn't sure how it all fit together yet and if any of it had to do with the past events with the burning women. He said to Jacob, "Do you think the others are here yet?" as he scanned the crowd.

Here is Clay and Liz is next to him.
Jacob points to one of the sitting tables and leads the way.

In order to speed things along somewhat, you may read one another's threads and consider those details discussed. Lets decide what the groups next steps are to be.

"I'd like to get my hands on an external hard drive today," says Liz. "It should be possible to get one for less than a hundred quid, but that's still not small change for me. If we can't swing that, a USB flash drive will still hold something, but I'll have to pick and choose which files I copy and can't just grab the whole thing. On the other hand, it's a lot smaller and I can easily slip it into a pocket. Tonight Clay and I can see about getting access to the computer. That still leaves us the rest of today to do other things, though."

Spoiler:
Considering Liz's Computer use skill I'm going to say she has access to a external storage of some kind with her laptop.

"I've already got some flash drives," Liz adds, "and I shouldn't have any problem finding an external hard drive I can borrow."

Greg asks, "So ... what else should we do? If this other professor has been incarcerated for selling artifacts, maybe we could question him at the jail and find out more about that... but I don't think he'd be inclined to speak to us considering he doesn't even know us. Not to mention, it might tip our hand to those who we'd rather remain off radar from."

"The money... follow the money," Greg muttered remembering some phrase from a detective show he watched once. "This guy took payment from someone probably. Maybe we can find out where the money came from in the bank records?"

"There's a thought," says Liz. "Was he arrested in Malta, or here?"

In Malta if I recall right.
Jacob replies
Should we take a flight to Malta and visit the dig site ?
Jacob add with a smile

"You'll be going without me" says Clay into his pint. "I cant afford to go to Malta."

"I'd be hard pressed to pay for my ticket," says Liz. "I spent most of my spare cash on my Paris holiday. I would like to go, but we should find out all we can here before we head to Malta."

Greg was considering footing the bill himself, but it would indeed be costly for an extended vacation for four to Malta. He suggested, "Maybe we can find out if any other excavation trips are planned in the near future and offer our services for more affordable tickets and such?"

Clay stands up Look at the others in turn. "Look, I better take a look at this place before tonight. I'll leave you brainiacs here to discuss what we do next." he pauses for a moment. "You don't think its going to turn out like the house do you? because I didn't really come prepared for that sort of thing"

"I bloody well hope not," says Liz with a shudder. She still has nightmares about fire sometimes. "This is a university's IT department, not the Tower of London. Still, there is the possibility that the killers might also be after the prof's computer. But how would they know where to find it?"

"if your not afraid to beat someone to death out in the open, then there are probably ways to get information which we might not consider" says Clay. "But perhaps its better to hope they've left matters at that"

Greg sighed, remembering the violent conclusion of his last trip there. He leaned in closer and spoke barely audible over the ambient noise, "Clay, you still have access to those handguns, right? I mean... if we need them, not like right now."

Clay smiles "Yeah I figured things might not be as finished as we hoped and we might want them again sometime, so yeah they're somewhere safe and out of the way"

"I'd have thought you'd have gotten rid of them," whispers Liz. "After all, they've been used. The fire prolly destroyed most of the evidence, but still...if we have to use them again, someone might connect it to that. Of course, if we have to use them again and we don't have them, that's the least of our worries. Should we bring them with tonight? If we're caught with them, it'll be worse than being caught without them, but it's best not to get caught in the first place."
