It suddenly strikes you. You made an arrangement to meet Squib in the auditorium.
And you’ve lost track of time. So you might as well head there. Hopefully your little altercation with Gorp hasn’t raised any suspicions.
And if it has. Well. You do have some money to spare, if not as much as you might have implied. They seem like the sort who can be placated with a good enough bribe.
Still… This is probably the most dangerous thing you’ve done all night, and that includes getting knocked out by a punch to the face. You should probably have some sort of plan in case things go sour.
Smile and/or wink.
Or I guess shamelessly complement.
I suppose you could grab some backup.
