Mac knew it was the vase of flowers, tossed out by Darien to prove some point. Then Darien left, cursing, stomping, down the stairs to his car. The only thing…prison or killed. Mac didn’t have the strength to kill Darien. And if he did, he wouldn’t survive prison. He’d be shanked to death, tormented, or tortured by Darien’s buddies on the inside. The only thing left was to get the man arrested and imprisoned for a long time. The rest of the night Mac stayed awake, knocking futilely on the wall to get Lisa’s attention, listening to her sob.

Darien’s mood was hard to pinpoint, he seemed distracted though not particulary angry. He didn’t stay long with Lisa, but when he came out he encountered a legless young man in a wheelchair blocking the staircase.
