The hunt for a deadly predator becomes a battle for survival in this thrilling science fiction novel.
The universe is vast, and it is teeming with life. From the smallest microbes to the largest beasts, there is an endless variety of creatures out there. And among them, there are hunters.
The universe is full of hunters, creatures that seek out prey with the same determination as any predator on Earth. But unlike the hunters on our planet, these extraterrestrial creatures are much more advanced. They are faster, stronger, and possess technology beyond our wildest dreams.
And now, one of them has come to Earth.
Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins
It was just another day in Los Angeles, a city on the brink of collapse. The streets were filled with the sounds of gunfire and the screams of the desperate. For Police Chief Mike Harrigan, it was just another day at work.
Harrigan was a man who had seen it all. He had survived the worst the city had to offer, from gang wars to drug lords. But nothing could have prepared him for what was about to happen.
It started with a call, a report of a brutal homicide in an abandoned building. Harrigan and his team arrived on the scene, ready to do their job. But what they found was something out of a nightmare.
The bodies of the victims were shredded, torn apart in a way that no human could have done. And the evidence left behind was even more disturbing. Claw marks, residue from an unknown substance, and strange markings etched into the walls.
Harrigan knew then that this was no ordinary crime. He had no idea what he was dealing with, but he knew one thing for sure. This was going to be a hunt unlike any he had ever been on.
He spent the next few days pouring over the evidence, analyzing the crime scene, and trying to piece together what had happened. But no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t shake the feeling that something was watching him.
His suspicions were confirmed when he stumbled upon a surveillance tape from a nearby building. The footage showed a figure moving swiftly through the shadows, stalking its prey with deadly precision.
Harrigan couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He had heard rumors of such creatures, of extraterrestrial hunters that came to Earth to hunt. But he had always dismissed them as tall tales, nothing more than urban legends.
Now, he was face to face with the reality of it. And he knew that he was next.
He rallied his team, a group of the best and brightest in their respective fields, and began preparing for the hunt of a lifetime. He knew that they were outmatched, outgunned, and outsmarted. But he also knew that they had one thing that the predator didn’t have – the will to survive.
Harrigan was determined to take down the predator, no matter what the cost. He knew that the city was under attack, and he was the only one who could stop it. But he also knew that he was in way over his head.
As he stepped out onto the streets of Los Angeles, ready to face his greatest challenge yet, he couldn’t help but wonder what other horrors lay in wait in the vast expanse of the universe. And he knew that he was going to need all the help he could get to face them.
Chapter 2: The First Encounter
Harrigan couldn’t believe what he was seeing. A group of gang members had just been attacked, torn apart as if by some wild animal. But it wasn’t an animal, it was something else entirely. Something otherworldly. Something that shouldn’t be on Earth.
As Harrigan investigated the scene, he found strange, metallic tendrils protruding from the corpses. He knew he needed to call for backup, but he couldn’t shake the feeling that this was more than just a routine homicide investigation. He had a gut feeling that he was about to find out exactly what was responsible for the carnage.
No sooner had he thought that than he heard a sound, like the screech of a wild animal. He quickly turned around to see a massive creature, standing over 7 feet tall, covered in shiny, black armor. The predator had arrived.
Harrigan began to back away slowly, his hand on his gun. The predator made an otherworldly clicking sound, as if to say it had been waiting for him. Harrigan knew he was outmatched, but he also knew he couldn’t back down now. He had to find a way to survive.
As the predator began to close in on him, Harrigan drew his gun and fired. The bullets ricocheted off the predator’s armor, doing little to stop it. The predator snarled, almost as if it was amused by his feeble attempts to fight back.
But Harrigan wasn’t going to give up that easily. He continued to fire, each shot ringing out through the desolate streets of Los Angeles. The predator was undeterred, however. It moved closer and closer, its claws glittering ominously in the dim light.
Just when it seemed like all hope was lost, Harrigan saw an opportunity. He noticed that the predator’s heat signature was different from anything he had ever seen before. It was as if the creature was emanating some kind of unnatural energy. He quickly realized that this was the predator’s weakness.
Harrigan yelled out to his team, telling them to bring in the heat sensors. As they arrived on the scene, he quickly explained his plan. They would use the sensors to track the predator and get a better idea of its movements. But they needed to move fast, before the predator could disappear into the shadows.
As they began to track the predator, Harrigan couldn’t help but feel a sense of unease. He knew that they were dealing with something that was far beyond their comprehension. But he also knew that he couldn’t stand by and let the predator continue its killing spree. He had to do something, even if it meant putting his own life on the line.
As they tracked the predator through the city, they began to see a pattern emerge. The predator was targeting certain individuals, seemingly at random. It was as if it was playing some kind of sick game, toying with its prey before going in for the kill.
Harrigan knew that they had to act fast. He and his team set up a trap, using themselves as bait to lure the predator out into the open. As the predator closed in on them, Harrigan felt a sense of calm come over him. He had faced death before, and he knew that he could handle whatever the predator threw his way.
In the final showdown, Harrigan stood face to face with the predator, his heart pounding in his chest. He knew that this was it, that everything was riding on this one moment. As he looked into the predator’s eyes, he saw something that he never expected to see – a hint of recognition.
Harrigan realized that the predator was more than just a killing machine. It was a being with its own motivations and desires. And as they fought, Harrigan couldn’t help but feel a sense of respect for the creature. It was a worthy opponent, one that he would never forget.
As the battle raged on, Harrigan felt a surge of adrenaline course through his veins. He knew that he was fighting for something greater than himself, something that was worth risking everything for. And as he emerged victorious, he knew that he had proven himself to be more than just a mere mortal. He was a hero, one that would go down in history for his bravery and determination.
But as he looked out over the city, he realized that the battle was far from over. The predator was just the beginning, the harbinger of something far more dangerous. And Harrigan knew that he would have to fight even harder if he wanted to protect his planet from the otherworldly threats that awaited them.
Chapter 3: The Trace
Harrigan and his team were able to track the predator’s movement throughout the city, using advanced technology. They had a general idea of where the predator would be next, but they didn’t know when or how it would strike.
The hunt for the predator became their top priority. As they followed the creature’s path of destruction, they realized that it had a specific pattern of behavior. It would kill at certain times and in certain locations. Harrigan and his team knew that they had to use this information to their advantage.
One night, they set up a stakeout at one of the predator’s preferred killing spots. They waited for hours, hoping to catch a glimpse of it. But as the night wore on, nothing happened. Just as they were about to give up, they heard a loud noise coming from the alley behind them.
Harrigan motioned for his team to stay still and quiet. He slowly walked towards the source of the sound, gun in hand. As he turned the corner, he saw the predator standing at the end of the alley.
The predator was staring at him, its eyes glowing in the dark. Harrigan couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He had heard stories about the predator, but he never thought he would encounter one in his lifetime.
The predator made a noise that sounded like a growl, and then it disappeared into thin air. Harrigan knew that it had cloaking technology, which made it nearly impossible to detect, but he had seen it with his own eyes.
He quickly radioed his team, telling them what he had just witnessed. They all rushed to his location, but the predator was long gone. They searched the area for any signs of the creature, but it was as if it had vanished into thin air.
Harrigan knew that they couldn’t give up. They had to find a way to track the predator’s movements more accurately. He called in a specialist in extraterrestrial technology, Dr. Samantha Cooper, to help them.
Cooper arrived at the police station the next day, carrying a large briefcase. She was a petite woman in her mid-thirties, with glasses and curly brown hair. Harrigan explained the situation to her, and she immediately got to work.
Cooper had access to technology that was beyond Harrigan’s comprehension. She set up a system of sensors throughout the city, which would detect any anomalies in the atmosphere. This would allow them to track the predator’s movements more accurately.
Over the next few days, the team analyzed the data from the sensors. They discovered that the predator was moving in a specific direction, towards the outskirts of the city. They knew that they had to act quickly before it could escape their jurisdiction.
They set up a trap for the predator, using a decoy to lure it into a building. The plan was to trap it inside and then capture it. Harrigan and his team waited patiently for the predator to take the bait.
As they waited, the tension in the room was palpable. Harrigan could feel his heart racing in his chest. He knew that this was their only chance to capture the predator, and he didn’t want to mess it up.
Suddenly, they heard a loud noise coming from the building. They knew that the predator had taken the bait. Harrigan and his team rushed towards the building, ready to catch the predator in their trap.
But as they entered the building, they realized that something was wrong. The predator was not there. Instead, they found the remains of the decoy, torn apart and scattered across the floor.
Harrigan knew that they had underestimated the predator’s intelligence. It had known that they were setting a trap for it, and it had managed to outsmart them.
As they regrouped outside the building, Harrigan realized that they were not dealing with an ordinary predator. This creature was something far more dangerous than anything they had ever encountered before.
He knew that they had to come up with a new plan, one that would allow them to capture the predator before it could do any more harm. But as he looked out over the city, he realized that the predator was not their only problem. There was something else at work, something far more sinister, and Harrigan knew that they had to find out what it was before it was too late.
Chapter 4: The Trap
Harrigan and his team had laid the perfect trap for the predator. They had used their advanced technology to track its movements and they were waiting for it to make the next move. The predator was known to follow a pattern, and they were counting on it to lead them to their target.
As they waited in the abandoned warehouse, tensions ran high. They knew that the predator was a formidable foe, and the slightest mistake could cost them their lives. Harrigan paced back and forth, trying to keep his nerves in check. He had faced many dangerous criminals in his career as a police officer, but nothing had prepared him for the predator.
Suddenly, the team’s monitoring devices beeped, indicating the presence of the predator. Harrigan signaled for his team to take their positions, and they all readied their weapons. The predator appeared in the doorway, its heat signature clearly visible on their screens.
The creature was covered in its signature camouflage, making it almost invisible to the naked eye. Harrigan knew that they had to act fast before the predator made its move. He signaled for his team to open fire, but the predator was too quick. It disappeared from view, leaving the team firing blindly into the darkness.
Harrigan realized that they had fallen into the predator’s trap. It had lured them into a false sense of security, knowing that they would be waiting for it. Harrigan shouted for his team to regroup, but it was too late. The predator emerged from the shadows, striking with lightning-fast movements.
One by one, the team members fell. The predator was too powerful for them, and they were no match for its advanced technology and strength. Harrigan watched in horror as his team was decimated, wondering if he would be the next to fall.
But Harrigan was not one to give up without a fight. He had faced overwhelming odds before, and he was determined to take down the predator. He drew his weapon and charged at the predator, firing off shots as he went.
The predator was taken by surprise, and Harrigan managed to get a few shots in. But the creature quickly regained its composure and fought back with even more ferocity than before. Harrigan realized that he was no match for the predator in hand-to-hand combat, and he knew that he had to improvise.
He spotted a nearby crane and made a run for it, hoping to use it as a weapon against the predator. The creature followed him, sensing that Harrigan was the biggest threat on the team. Harrigan used his knowledge of the warehouse to his advantage, ducking behind pillars and crates to avoid the predator’s attacks.
As the predator charged at him, Harrigan activated the crane, sending it swinging towards the creature. The predator was caught off guard, and it was hit by the crane, sending it flying across the room. Harrigan didn’t waste any time, firing off a final shot that hit the predator directly in the head.
For a moment, there was silence, as Harrigan watched the creature’s body dissolve into thin air. He had done it. He had taken down the predator. But as he emerged from the warehouse, he knew that this was just the beginning. There were more predators out there, waiting to strike, and Harrigan was ready to take them down, one by one.
Chapter 5: The Showdown
Harrigan stood alone in the abandoned warehouse, his heart pounding in his chest. He had tracked down the predator and set the perfect trap, but things had gone horribly wrong. His team had been taken out one by one, leaving Harrigan to face the predator alone.
He held his gun tightly in his hand, his eyes scanning the darkness. He knew that one wrong move could mean his death. But he was determined to take down the predator no matter what.
Suddenly, he heard a low growl coming from behind him. He spun around, his gun at the ready. The predator was standing there, its eyes glowing in the darkness.
Harrigan felt a surge of fear wash over him, but he refused to let it show. He knew that the predator was a skilled hunter, but so was he. He would use every trick in his arsenal to take down the alien creature.
The predator let out a blood-curdling scream and charged at Harrigan. He fired his gun at the predator, but it was too quick, dodging and weaving through the bullets. Harrigan realized that he needed a different strategy.
He holstered his gun and pulled out a machete. The predator was armed with a deadly glowing spear, but Harrigan was determined to get in close and take him down.
The two clashed in a violent battle, sparks flying from their weapons. Harrigan had never felt so alive, the adrenaline pumping through his veins. He was determined to come out on top.
They circled each other, looking for an opening. Harrigan feinted left and then struck out with his blade, narrowly missing the predator’s face. The predator roared in anger and launched a flurry of strikes. Harrigan managed to dodge most of them, but one caught him in the shoulder.
He gritted his teeth and swung back, his machete connecting with the predator’s arm. The alien creature let out a deafening scream and stumbled back.
Harrigan knew that he had a moment of opportunity. He launched himself at the predator, striking with all his might. The predator was caught off guard and struggled to defend itself.
Harrigan struck again and again, his machete slicing through the air. He could feel his heart racing, his blood pumping. He was so close to victory.
But then something unexpected happened. The predator suddenly disappeared, reappearing behind Harrigan with lightning-fast speed. Harrigan spun around, but it was too late. The predator’s spear pierced through his chest.
Harrigan felt a searing pain shoot through his body. He knew that he was dying. He looked up at the predator, his eyes burning with rage.
But then something even more unexpected happened. The predator looked down at Harrigan and then withdrew its spear. It let out a low growl and then disappeared into the darkness.
Harrigan lay there, bleeding and broken. He knew that he had achieved something that few humans could ever hope to accomplish – he had faced off against a predator and lived to tell the tale.
As he drifted towards unconsciousness, he realized that the battle wasn’t over. There were still other predators out there, and they would come to Earth to hunt again. But Harrigan was ready for them. He would fight to protect his planet, no matter what the cost.
Chapter 6: The Revelation
Harrigan’s mind was still reeling from his epic battle with the predator. His emotions were still raw, and he was struggling to process everything that had happened. He knew that he had to figure out what was going on and why the predator had come to Earth. It was time to uncover the truth.
He called a meeting with his team of specialists, and they gathered in his office. The room was tense as Harrigan began to speak. “We need to figure out why the predator came to Earth,” he said. “There has to be a reason, and we need to find out what it is.”
The team got to work, poring over data and analyzing the predator’s actions. It didn’t take long for them to realize that there were other extraterrestrial creatures on Earth. They had been hiding in plain sight, observing humanity and waiting for the right moment to strike.
Harrigan was shocked. “How could we not have known?” he asked.
“It’s easy,” one of the specialists replied. “They’ve been here for centuries, blending in with the human population. They’ve been careful not to reveal themselves, waiting for the right moment to make their move.”
Harrigan’s mind was spinning. “What do they want?” he asked.
“They want to hunt,” another specialist answered. “It’s in their DNA. They are predators, and they need to hunt to survive.”
Harrigan shook his head. “But why Earth? There are countless planets out there with life forms to hunt. Why us?”
The specialists looked at each other, and one of them spoke up. “We think it’s because we’re a challenge. Humans are intelligent, strong, and resourceful. We’re not an easy target. That’s why so many different species have come here to hunt over the years.”
Harrigan was starting to understand. “So the predator was just one of many?” he asked.
“Yes,” the specialist confirmed. “And they’re not the only ones. There are other species out there, waiting for their chance to hunt. And they’re coming.”
Harrigan sat back in his chair, his mind racing. “What do we do?” he asked.
“We fight,” one of the specialists said. “We have to protect Earth from these creatures. It won’t be easy, but we have to try.”
Harrigan nodded. “Agreed. But how do we fight something we know so little about?”
The specialists exchanged a glance, and then one of them spoke up. “We have some ideas. We’ve been working on weapons and technology that could help us in the fight. It won’t be easy, but we’re up for the challenge.”
Harrigan was impressed. “Good. Let’s get to work. We’ve got a fight on our hands, but we’re not going down without a fight.”
The team got to work, determined to protect Earth from the extraterrestrial creatures that threatened it. Harrigan knew that it would be a long and difficult battle, but he was ready for it. He was a fighter, and he wasn’t going to let his planet fall to the hunters from space.
As the team worked, Harrigan couldn’t help but think about the predator. He knew that the creature would always hold a special place in his heart. It had tested him, pushed him to his limits, and made him question everything he knew about the universe.
But he was ready for whatever came next. With his team at his side, he knew that he could face anything that the universe had in store for him. He was a warrior, and he was ready to fight.
Chapter 7: The Aftermath
The dust has settled, debris litters the streets. The city of Los Angeles is in ruins, but it is not just the physical destruction that weighs on Police Chief Mike Harrigan’s mind. He knows that the battle with the predator was just the beginning of what could be an ongoing war. The revelation that humans are not alone in the universe has rocked his understanding of the world and left him wondering about what else may be out there.
Harrigan and his team are hailed as heroes, but he knows that they were lucky to survive. He mourns the loss of his colleagues who gave their lives to protect the city. But he also knows that the fight is not over. He can’t help but wonder, “What’s next?”
As he stands in the wreckage of the city, he looks up at the sky, pondering what other threats may be lurking out there, beyond their planet. He remembers the words of his deceased comrade, Danny, who had always wondered why humans were so arrogant to think that they were the only intelligent life in the universe.
Harrigan decides that he needs to know more. He needs to understand the predator, and any other extraterrestrial species that may be out there, in order to better prepare for any future attacks on Earth. He enlists the help of the remaining members of his team, and together they begin to research and investigate what they can about the predator and other similar beings.
As they delve deeper, they uncover a network of people and organizations that are aware of the existence of these creatures. They learn that there is a whole underground world of people who have been tracking these beings for years, watching and waiting for any signs of activity.
With their newfound knowledge, Harrigan and his team develop a plan to create a specialized unit to track and fight extraterrestrial threats. They call it the “Predator Unit.” This unit will include the best of the best, hand-picked members with specialized skills who are dedicated to protecting Earth from these beings.
Harrigan knows that this is a tall order, but he is determined to make it work. He is confident that with the right team, and the right tools, they can not only defend their planet but prevent future attacks altogether. As he looks out at the wreckage of the city, he knows that this is just the beginning – but he’s ready for whatever comes next.
With a deep breath, Harrigan turns to his team and says, “We’ve got work to do.”
The team nods, silently accepting their leader’s call to action.
The stage is set for a new chapter in human history. As Harrigan and his team prepare for the unknown, they know one thing for sure: they are not alone in the universe, and they will do whatever it takes to protect their planet from any and all threats.

What’s going on here?
It’s a hit, man. These guys got taken down by a predator.
HARRIGAN looks around, confused.
A predator. You know, the things from outer space.
Enough with the sci-fi crap. I need to know what really happened here.
Suddenly, HARRIGAN hears a strange clicking noise in the distance. He turns to see a blurry figure darting across the rooftops.
What the hell is that?
HARRIGAN pulls out his gun and runs towards the figure.
EXT. WAR-TORN STREETS OF LOS ANGELES – NIGHT
Police Chief Mike Harrigan is in hot pursuit of a notorious drug lord, dodging bullets and jumping over debris. Suddenly, he stops in his tracks as he sees a group of gang members being attacked by an otherworldly creature. The creature is a PREDATOR, and its three-pronged weapon is causing chaos.
Harrigan hides behind a car, watching in wonder as the predator takes down the gang members one by one. He realizes that they don’t stand a chance against this powerful creature, and decides to take matters into his own hands. He calls for backup and takes out his gun.
INT. POLICE STATION – DAY
Harrigan meets with his team of specialists, consisting of forensic experts, scientists, and military personnel. They’re gathered around a large monitor, analyzing footage of the predator.
What the hell is that thing?
We’re not sure yet, but we believe it’s an extraterrestrial being. Its weapon is unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
But its movements suggest that it’s following a specific pattern. We might be able to track it down.
We have access to some advanced weapons technology that might help us take it down.
Harrigan nods in agreement, and the team quickly gets to work.
EXT. CITY STREETS – NIGHT
Harrigan and his team, armed with advanced equipment and weapons, are tracking the predator. They follow its movements through the city, getting closer and closer to their target.
Suddenly, they come across a gruesome scene: the predator has attacked a group of homeless people, leaving behind a trail of blood and destruction.
We need to take this thing down before it kills any more innocent people.
The team nods in agreement, and they prepare to face off against the predator in a battle that will determine the fate of the entire city.
INT. POLICE HEADQUARTERS – DAY
Harrigan is hunched over a large computer monitor, studying maps of the city. His team members, Garber and Cantrell, stand nearby.
(pointing at the map)
There. That’s where the last attack happened.
What’s our move?
We need to find some way to lure the predator out into the open.
We can use ourselves as bait. We know it’s hunting us. Maybe if we create a distraction, it’ll come to us.
But how do we do that?
We need to make it think there’s another target. Something bigger than us.
A big enough explosion should do the trick.
But where do we get explosives?
I know a guy.
EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – DAY
Harrigan meets with his contact, a shady-looking man named Bennie.
What kind of boom you looking for?
Something big. Enough to create a diversion.
I got just the thing.
Bennie leads Harrigan to a large crate in the middle of the warehouse. He opens it up to reveal a cache of military grade explosives.
EXT. CITY STREETS – NIGHT
Harrigan and his team set up the explosives in a deserted area of the city. They watch from a distance as the timer ticks down.
(to Cantrell and Garber)
Get ready. This is going to be one hell of a show.
As the timer hits zero, the explosives detonate, sending a massive shockwave throughout the city. The team members watch in awe as a massive fireball erupts in the distance.
There! Over there!
Harrigan and his team rush towards the direction Cantrell is pointing. In the distance, they see the predator, attracted to the explosion.
This is it. Let’s take that motherfucker down.
The team members ready their weapons as they prepare for their final encounter with the predator.
INT. ABANDONED FACTORY – NIGHT
The team sets up a trap in the abandoned factory with various weapons and explosives, waiting for the predator to arrive. Harrigan keeps a watchful eye on the surroundings, anticipating the predator’s arrival.
(to the team)
Remember, stay alert and stick to the plan. We need to take down this predator once and for all.
As the team takes their positions, the sound of footsteps echoes through the factory. Harrigan raises his gun, ready for the predator’s arrival.
Suddenly, the room goes dark, and the team’s night vision goggles go out. They hear the predator’s signature clicking sound, followed by its thermal vision appearing on their screens.
Harrigan pulls out a flare and tosses it into the middle of the room, illuminating the area. The predator reveals itself, towering over them.
(into his walkie-talkie)
The team unleashes their weapons, firing relentlessly at the predator. But the predator is too fast, dodging their bullets and retaliating with deadly precision.
One by one, the team members fall until only Harrigan is left standing. The predator approaches him, ready to deliver the final blow.
But Harrigan refuses to back down. He engages in a brutal hand-to-hand battle with the predator, using his wits and strength to gain the upper hand.
Finally, Harrigan manages to impale the predator with a piece of broken metal. The predator lets out a piercing screech before collapsing to the ground.
Breathless and injured, Harrigan stands victorious over the predator’s body. He knows that this won’t be the end of their battle, but for now, he can rest knowing that he has protected his city from an otherworldly threat.
EXT. ABANDONED WAREHOUSE – NIGHT
Harrigan and the Predator are locked in an intense battle. The warehouse is ablaze around them, and the sounds of gunfire and explosions echo through the air. They exchange blows, each trying to gain the upper hand.
You picked the wrong city to mess with, alien scum!
The Predator lets out a guttural roar, swinging its weapon at Harrigan. He dodges it and counters with a swift kick, knocking the weapon out of the Predator’s hand.
The two warriors continue to fight, each one determined to emerge victorious. Harrigan manages to land a few solid blows, but the Predator proves to be a formidable opponent.
Suddenly, a high-pitched noise fills the air. Harrigan staggers back, clutching his ears in pain. The Predator takes advantage of the momentary weakness and knocks Harrigan to the ground.
(struggling to stand up)
Is that all you’ve got?
The Predator growls, raising its weapon for the killing blow. But before it can strike, a bright light fills the warehouse, blinding both Harrigan and the Predator.
What the hell is that?!
As the light fades, Harrigan and the Predator find themselves surrounded by a group of humanoid creatures, each one armed with advanced weaponry.
Human, you have proven yourself worthy. We have been watching your planet for some time, and we believe you have what it takes to join us in our fight against the greatest threat the universe has ever known.
Harrigan looks around, confused and disoriented. The Predator snarls, clearly unhappy with this turn of events.
(to the Predator)
And you, hunter. We have long admired your prowess in battle. Join us, and together we will be unstoppable.
The Predator considers the offer for a moment before nodding grudgingly.
Do not fear us, human. We are not your enemy. We are here to save your world from the imminent threat of extinction.
Harrigan nods, still uncertain but willing to listen.
