Domino slammed into Ralan's body, trying to knock him over. Ann tripped him as Mickey grabbed his cuffs, jerking his hands up behind his back as he fell. Domino howled as his shoulders wrenched. Dragging him upright, Ralan yanked on the cuffs again, making the big man scream.

"You looked like you could take him," Ann said in a friendly tone. "We didn't want to spoil your fun."
"Next time, spoil it," Ralan said.
