Mara’s been kidnapped by (probably) Vampires. That’s what’s happened. And the ransom is all the blood Mara’s been hording… and probably stole from the vampires. So the team is ready to make the trade, but in the hours before the drop they’ve gone to the local Goth club (a few blocks from the drop site) to see if there are any more clues to find.
They definitely find something.
