Holy shit...we took them out.
I was confident we would be able to rescue Bret and get what we needed, but we may have ended the Panthers. One of the most lethal gangs in the city down, because of us. Sure, there's a power vacuum now, and lots of other lowlife orgs out there who will rise up and take their place, but for now, the Vandals have won.
Colt really stepped up when I needed him last night - I might not be alive if it weren't for him. I'm not some damsel in distress, and I can manage my own shit, but it meant a lot when he hurled himself in the way of literal gunfire for me. The whole team was amazing actually. We really came together and did something big, and it makes me think there's hope for the Canyons after all. Now we just have to figure out how to get Marko off our asses.
I should check in with Charity soon. Running things is usually her deal, and it must not have been easy to hand me the reins like she did, but it meant a lot for her to trust me like that. Honestly, she scared me a little when she talked about killing Mother Superior (Disruptr did too, for that matter). I know she's been through a lot in her life, but I hope she can see that we'd be going down a pretty dark path if we accepted that choice.
I'll have those conversations later though - I'm still too high on adrenaline to think straight. Fuck the Panthers. Long live the Vandals.
