As soon as he entered the café, Aksel looked around and made a beeline for the table where he usually settled down. He sat by it and impatiently waited for either Astrid or her partner to come over. The spouse came over soon enough, asking him if he was doing okay and if he wanted anything to drink, but he just asked if she knew where Astrid was. Apparently, the woman was on her way. So, he dismissed her and told her he was waiting on her.
When Astrid entered, he perked up and was about to tell her about what he has, but the woman came over and started to quietly rebuke him for how he ran from her and how she had to listen to Olav rant to her about her being useless.
"Well, it's not my problem you're slow." Aksel eventually just told her. "But anyway, look at this." he unzipped the bag again and pulled out the device, holding it with both his hands. It looked like an ordinary electronic device one could buy in a store.
Astrid, still a little pissed, sat down beside him and did her best to cool off as she focused on the device. "What about it? What is it?"
"Look look..." The lad quickly did something on it. He knew the premise on which it worked because he used it before and that was why he was very set on wanting it before. There was a short loading sequence on the screen but then the screen displayed the image that one of the café cameras was taking video of. He looked toward the camera and then at Astrid. "Eh?" he prompted. "Without trouble. Instant." he looked back to the device. "Watch, you can..." he went on to show her that he could do the simple things like zoom in and out and alike but then he turned off the camera.
"Turn it back on." Astrid demanded instantly. "Where did you get that?" she asked. Those weren't simple cameras. She didn't think it would be that easy to access them and turn them off. Peter confirmed it to her.
"I can also access the alarm system and make it go off now for no reason."
"Don't. Where did you get it from?"
"It doesn't matter from where." Aksel dismissed her question instead of ignoring it again. "But it's fun to okay with it." he smirked a little as he exited the camera - after he turned it back on, leaving that alone so that he can show her something else. "Check your phone."
Astrid pulled it out of her pocket, but already heard someone in the café complain that their call cut out and another person that the café wi-fi isn't working anymore. "That's like the thing Peter can do, right? Jam everything?"
"Yeah, but this is on the go and more accurate if you want it to be. No need to take out a whole block." he explained to her, returning the signals and everything to the café. He didn't want to ruin their business. "I love this."
"I see that it's just a toy for you."
"Well, what else is it supposed to be. It's for entertainment." Aksel turned it off and carefully stored it back in the bag, which he immediately closed up.
"It's more than just a toy, but whatever.." Astrid looked away from him to his wife, who she got up to greet.
Since there was nothing else for him to do there, Aksel quickly abandoned the café. He had a lot on mind, but some pretty big things - and perhaps things he really shouldn't do - were spinning around his head. He didn't have much of an ability to think about it now. His thoughts were there for a few seconds, presented themselves as the best ideas in the world, and then they were gone along with all of his ability to properly think about it. Granted, he wasn't doing any of it now because he was still subconsciously aware that he shouldn't do any of it. He shouldn't burn down his residences and get going wherever the fuxk he wants to go. He shouldn't commit arson on his father's residence either. There was no reason to plant a bomb somewhere either. A lot more irrational, rash and impulsive acts passed through his head, but the first still seemed the most appealing. The second one also sounded very nice, maybe too nice.
On the street, he managed to clear his head from those thoughts for now. He walked with an empty head, just taking in whatever was around him. The people passing by and the various conversations he overheard. He went on like that until a familiar car slowed down beside him and stopped, making him halt as well. The tinted window rolled down and he immediately recognised two of his father's close people - Rakkel and Josef.
"Get in or we'll have to use force." Josef told him right off the bat, showing him a glimpse of his gun.
Aksel didn't see a reason for it at all. Not like he was already resisting them and he didn't plan to. Maybe his father heard the device he got and just wanted to see it. That device really was the only thing that was constant in his thoughts. So, without trouble, he got into the back of the car.
