@verdigrisprowl - closed starter!
Magnets. What kind of magnets should he get? Where should he get them from? This had taken on the air of a quest now, a quest Tarantulas certainly didn’t understand but somehow held significant meaning.
He took his time contemplating the riddle, not wanting to rush Prowl right away for fear of frightening him - of course Prowl would anticipate how eager he was to see him again, but Tarantulas had to retain some sense of dignity in the matter.
He ended up snatching a handful of these in a variety of colors and carefully tucked them away in his subspace. As a belated thought, he left a few credit chits in their place, knowing Prowl would be disappointed in him if he hadn’t done so. He begrudged the sacrifice, but admittedly he could make up the lost shanix in no time if he absolutely needed to.
Approaching the jail cell in the same fashion as he had the last time, Tarantulas snuck through the energy field and dropped to the floor, transforming and mass shifting on the way down. Still a dramatic entrance, but he made sure to momentarily drop his attention deflectors to clue Prowl in on his presence.
::You really oughtn’t snoop on other people’s conversations, Prowl. It’s generally considered rude, last time I checked.:: A wry squint of his visor.
