Dan showed her his viewer with the images he'd taken the day before. She stared at the screen.

"Not my kind of op," Brady said. "No one else escaped. Does anyone know about you?"

Understanding crossed her features.

"If you know what happened," Dan said, "you damn well better tell us."

"Fuck you," she snapped. "Why would I tell you anything?"

"Because if you don't, we'll pop Lana," Brady said.

Her head whipped around to him. Brady crossed his arms. The moment dragged on.

"Let's go get her, Dan," he ordered and turned away. He counted to five before she broke.

"Greenie knew we left," Elise said.

Dan shot him a look of amusement before they both turned.

"Lana said she needed help getting to the Peace Command Center in Colorado, that Greenie was going to kill her once she found out what she'd done," Elise continued.

"What she do?"

"I don't know. She's my friend. She doesn't have to say much more than she needed my help," she said, glaring at them. "Where is she?"

"She's safe for now."

"I want to see her."

"Maybe," he replied.

"No. Now."

Brady bristled and strode to her, stopping when he was close enough for their bodies to touch in an unmistakable attempt at intimidation. Elise was much larger than most women, but she was still smaller than him.

"Look around you," he ordered in a low voice.

She stared at him.

"Look."

Elise did so grudgingly, taking in the PMF insurgents crowded around.

"These men hate you and everything you stand for. You're not in your world anymore. You better learn fast if you want to survive my world, challenging me isn't the way to go," he warned. "It's not just your life you need to worry about. You got it?"

Her jaw clenched, then she yielded with a sigh.

"Please let me see her," she said, looking up at him.

"If I free you …"

"I won't try anything. I swear it."

He stepped away. Dan touched his thumb to the thumb pads, and her chains fell away. She stretched with a grimace. She cursed, her mutter fading away as she tested her body.

Brady rested one hand on his laser gun until he was sure she wouldn't try anything. She straightened finally with an angry look at Dan, who smiled in response. Brady wondered what the good-natured man had said to piss her off so much.
