Cordelia stutters her way through her response, in seeming shock at having a pistol leveled towards her when she knows she is practically defenseless. The woman reaches for the pistol in her partner's hands with a scowl towards her partner. "Cliff! Can't you see this poor lady is confused! Yer pistol would irritate baby Isabelle, and me. We don't need no defenders on this corner cause you done shot up a random passerby. Put yer damn gun down!" She practically commands through a hoarse throat. Cliff looks to her with an obvious scowl and keeps his pistol up, looking at Cordelia. "Shut up, woman. You get out of my house. We ain't seen no damn dog. Now get gone!" He commands and even through Cordelia's tear stricken face, the plebus can tell he is serious and he has undoubtedly taken a life before.
Cordelia hears the stifled cries of the child in the crib, and has but two options before her; leave and join the others or risk getting shot.
What are you doing
[The target house]
Lucille and Millicent continue talking briefly, acting like true tenants of the area while Megan shuffles down a different ally, eyeing the side of the house with the cellar. Brooks and Susan begin making their way towards the target house from the north-western side, nearest the wall. Brooks, remaining closer to the intersection, acting as a chaser should anyone in the house rabbit.
Amber keeps to the ground and scouts out whatever intel she can find, remaining as quiet as a stalker would be while casing the house. Amber notices a stillness to the target house, though other houses seem to be bustling with different levels of activity. It's then that everyone with a radio hears Jezebel over their private net. "GIRLS, Temptress. There's a door to a basement on the East side of the building under some tarp. Meg, that's your front door--go through it. Amber, I'm on the roof in front of you. Move to the house just North of the one I'm on. You and Susan should meet each each other on the West side of the house; enter the house from the West however you can. Lucy, grab Milly and follow Megan's lead. I'm going in through the roof--NOW."
Lucille, Millicent, Susan and Megan then all see their purple-haired leader leap from one building in a near cannon-ball style dive towards the target building. Leaping from the second level of the house she is on, crashing into the first level roof. Jezebel immediately feels the brittle wood of the rooftop cave in underneath her intent to crash it; it's unclear how this building was even still standing and was likely due to be replaced soon anyways, Jez figures she's probably doing Merctown a favor by smashing this roof, of course, it is the Warrens.
As the roof caves in and Jezebel lands to the floor, inside the building, she is hit with the overbearing smell of iron. As she looks around in the room, she finds three bodies slumped over chairs, bleeding out. The one to her right and to her left are both seemingly dead, the one ahead of her is drawing the slightest of breathes. Whatever happened here was brutal and quick with blood staining the floors and walls near the bodies, and on a quick glance, Jez can safely guess the one near-death ahead of her will likely die within minutes. If Jez looks around, she'll find a fourth body in a room that possibly used to be a sort of kitchen, and is now little more than a room flipped upside down. Moment's after Jez crashes her way in, Amber and Susan move in with her and see the same she does, Amber kicking in the front doors and both girls moving to either side of Jezebel. Susan also sees the one still gasping for breathe ahead of Jezebel down a hallway.
Meanwhile, Megan, Lucille and Millicent move towards the cellar pointed out by Jezebel. Megan finds a steel double-cellar door underneath the tarp with a seemingly sophisticated locking mechanism and a keypad. When Megan tries to open it, she finds she cannot without either breaking down the door or disabling the lock. Lucille and Millicent are each a few meters back, but close enough to see that the cellar door is certainly tech and not something one can just open.
