As Nata, Arsenei, Ivan and Flip follow a pair of heavily armed pickups to find out what kind of shit they’re up to, the group decides to loot a convenience store to find some medicine, canned food and spirits. Arriving at the scene they are disappointed to find only Absinthe, but soon get even more disappoint as gas grenades drop in on them. Seeking shelter in a back room, the group tries to fend their way out. Being the only one with a gas mask, Aimi has a slight advantage, but it doesn’t help too much when visibility is limited.
The attack is however not as smooth as the kidnappers expect, both due to Aimi’s gas mask and Richard’s surprising resilience against the gas. However, their number superiority shows to be large enough to matter, and the group is captured, thrown in a van, and driven to Frankfurt. They’re locked in a room, and like any healthy kidnap victims, proceed to trash anyhing not made of concrete they can find. Including soundproofing roof tiles, air vents, camera housings and chairs. aimi climbs out through an air vent, gets spotted, and proceed to do a lot of shit-talking with the slightly un-amused guards. Ayame follows, squeezing through the tight air vent to get out of the room, getting shot to death in the process.
Aimi takes a different approach, demanding to talk to Arnold, and then talking to the guards about the horde. One of them catches on, offering to help them get out. Aimi is in, the rest of the group too. They are escorted to a book store at the airport so they can talk to Arnold as Aimi refuse to do it otherwise, their guard does his thing, killing his captain, and Aimi snatches Arnold. Suddenly, the tides are turned. Aimi uses their newfound leverage to get out, taking Arnold with her, contact Nata and the others, and get transport away from Frankfurt. They go to Heidelberg to bury Ayame, and do so in a samurai-isch manner before offering Arnold to Nata, who might or might not be slightly brutal to him, and he does not leave Heidelberg alive.
