The story begins with Pitts and Lenny receiving invitations to do business, asking to meet Elena Tasseva at the Motor City Blues, a dive bar catering to the 1%-er biker gang types. As they arrive (and make their way past a quite bellicose warthog hybrid bouncer out front), the heavy snows the weather forecasters called for begins to fall.
The meet with Elena Tasseva, a.k.a. the “Iron Lady,” results in a professional and straightforward proposal: take a memory stick to a dealer named Goat doing business in a trap house not far from the Motor City Blues. The conversation also hints at further and on-going business in the future, with the aims of Tasseva trying to rebuild her fortunes after a painful fall from grace.
After the meet Lenny and Pitts took a cab piloted by a cigar-smoking, steely-eyed driver named Enrique. He took them up Rosa Parks Boulevard within several blocks of their intended destination, but could go no further, due to the disrepair of the roads, the dangerous nature of the neighborhood itself, and the heavy snow storm making conditions increasingly perilous.
It would take Lenny and Pitts a good twenty minutes to walk several more blocks in near pitch-black conditions and with the snow melting and refreezing to form a layer of ice on the ground. After a while they arrived at the trap house, upon which they meet Goat, who would appear to be very paranoid and tweaking off of an experimental batch of his own supply, having used himself as a test subject. Among other things, Goat proved himself to be a loyal servant of Satan, and took any and all opportunities to glorify his evil master while waving around firearms.
As Lenny and Pitts followed Goat further into his den, they discovered that not only did he have a quite elaborate drug lab set up in the kitchen, but he also had a room dedicated to serious computer hardware, revealing the dealer to be a man of many talents. Alas before Goat could verify the information on the memory stick was correct, the house was assaulted by Highland Park gang members, who sought retalliation for Goat selling an experimental batch of drugs to a kid brother and causing him to become physically and mentally disabled.
Goat opened up his broom closet armory to Pitts and Lenny, allowing them to use automatic weapons to hold off the first and second wave of Parkers while they escaped through the basement and into a hole Goat had cracked into the sewers. As they fled, Goat produced a detonater he had stashed and wired to explosive charges within his home. As Parkers were beginning to follow them into the sewers, Goat gave a long and gloried praise to Satan while performing a Prayer of Destruction, at which point Lenny, growing frustrated with Goat, preemptively set off the explosive charges, levelling Goat’s base of operations.
As they were making their way to the streets, Goat began to come off his drugs, his fury and paranoia giving way to depression and lethargy. Having found out that Goat is in fact the nephew of Elena Tasseva, Pitts made a call to a Tasseva, who asked they put Goat up in a motel and give her the address. For their efforts above and beyond the original parameters of the job, she gave Pitts and Lenny each an additional 1,000 creds on top of the agreed-upon 500 each that she had promised. Pitts and Lenny also managed to maintain possession of some choice armaments from Goat’s broom closet weapons storage.
