My characters (on a road trip) have lost all their funds and so call on the cousin of the secondary character. She lives out in the sticks in a house built by her husband who works in the building / construction business. The idea was to call on her in the hope of simply borrowing money, but the idea all seems a bit flat now. I need to spice up the scene, but I'm drawing a blank on ideas. To have them simply arrive, borrow money and then leave, all seems very 'meh'. I did consider having the secondary character find a safe in the house, and robbing them, but couldn't think how he would open the thing, and also the fact that this is his cousin would mean it would be too easy for the police to track them down.
