Kai couldn't tell where the van was heading - she was a smart woman but she was unable to calculate the distance or location of a route simply by ear. Had she known her home better, down to the pothole or the distinguishable smells of drugs in each neighbourhood, then maybe she would have an inkling of how far she had been dragged from her house, bound at the wrists with her mouth stuffed and a gag cleaving into the corners, black sack over her head. If she survived whatever this was, she would need to rectify that mistake, as well as the litany of errors and oversights concerning her security systems. That would come at a later time though, for now, she just had to stay calm and not act out. She wasn't being executed, her home was an isolated location, that would have been a good place for it. She wasn't being kidnapped, no, they would have made a call by now and they would have likely had her sedated to prevent any trouble, so they likely intended to take her to someone.
Given the advanced tactical equipment and weaponry the soldiers sitting with her in the van possessed, her soon to be host was most likely wealthy, commanded a small private force, and given that they were tearing the house apart when they were dragging her out, they must have been looking for something. Perhaps they were rivals, looking for the recipe to Bliss? But that could only mean...Jason.
"That motherf-" She began, only for the rest to be abruptly knocked from her by an impromptu pistol strike to the right temple, throwing her onto her side. Even with nothing to see, she could faintly sense the world around her spinning and blurring slightly, a soft groan escaping her lips.
"Be quiet," A voice ordered, cold and uncaring for the health of their subject. If she had her hands untied, Kai probably would have tried to strangle him for that, but all things considered, it was probably for the best that she didn't. She spent the rest of the trip in silence, balling and stretching her hands impatiently until the van hit a bump and started to shudder and jerk, the engine shutting down.
The momentum ceased and Kai felt a hand grip her upper right arm, with the young woman reflexively pulling herself away only to stumble back into another assailant. He grabbed both of her arms and held her still as another hard blow crashed against Kai's skull, the world proverbially shaking and fading once more. As if to humiliate or punish her, she felt two tree-trunk-like arms wrap around her calves and pull tight, pulling her from the ground and suspending her in the air, helpless. She knew how bad an idea it was, but she fought anyway, white-hot anger boiling in the pit of her stomach at the indignity of all of it. If this really was Jason, he was going to have a lot to answer for...
