Rigel nodded and returned to looking over the other customers "That she is, nice little ship" He said and smiled again "Glad I get to fix her up a bit."

Esk snorted. "Talking about fate and destiny, you sound like my foster brother. Only reason my asshole father helped is because he hates slavers, he'll do just about anything you ask if it means he gets to slaughter a few of them. No mystery about it, no greater power. Only reason he didn't fuck us all over was because he wanted a chance to murder people, i'm sure he'll come looking for a favour in return at some point though. You can't make deals with Tanaari and not expect them to come shiv you in the back at some point." He sighed. His hatred for the man was pretty clear.

Tala looked at the others. "I will win us more drinks now!" she said. After a moment, she looked at James, "Except for you, Slave. You can watch us."

"That's not my name!" James called after Tala, even though he had basically given up on her ever using his name.
He looked at Esk, almost sympathetic, "My brother says everyone does bad things sometimes. Don't worry, your dad isn't the only guy who does crappy stuff."

Rigel looked to Esk at his words then sighed softly and watched Tala. "Maybe so Esk, but how do you explain away having Dawn able to reach him? The trials she went through to get you to help her by contacting him? I doubt he would have ever listened to her without you there to set up the meeting in the first place."

Esk frowned at James. "My father is an evil minded vicious son of a bitch, crappy doesn't begin to cover it. "

"Trials SHE went through? She wasn't the one tortured." Esk shook his head at Rigel. "You don't honestly believe some higher power sent slavers our way just to make some demented point? Because that's a pretty fucked up god. We were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, she bought my freedom because she's a decent person who seems to be under the impression i'm worth something" He rolled his eyes at that. "I owed her my life and freedom, and I hate being in debt to people." He shrugged. "She got lucky, and for once my asshole father was actually useful. Much as I hate having to call on him for favors, I hate being in debt to people I barely know more. Only reason i'm in contact with the man is because I haven't yet managed to kill the bastard. Satisfying though it was to watch Vicky shoot him, I doubt it's the last we'll see of him."

James privately agreed with Esk on this. He didn't want to make Rigel sad though, so he kept his agreements to himself.

Tala started arm wrestling fools.

Vicky shrugged and went back to her whiskey without saying another word, just wishing this was one of the time she could actually get drunk.

"Yeah, not bad for a kid, huh?" Rigel said then shrugged "There will always be those we can't stand to be around, usually that's because we are too much like that person."

Esk's eyes narrowed. "My father." He spat. "is a rapist and a murderer. I'm nothing like him." Evidently Rigel hit a nerve there. Esk ordered another drink which he downed rapidly and turned to watch Tala.

Rigel shrugged and looked to Tala, after all, he hadn't seen much of Hytar but he did know father and son were both stubborn and liked their own way. "Not always, but often" He said quietly

Esk tensed visibly. "no." He spoke flatly and lapsed into silence.

James looked at the counter. Well, this had gotten awkward fast.

Another minotaur, almost as massive as Tala, stepped into the bar. Tala snorted and pawed the ground.

"Oh boy," James said. Whew, he thought.

Oh good, a suitable distraction. Esk watched the two minotaurs with a smirk, this should be interesting.

"You smell of grass and sunlight!" Tala said. "Planet loving fool!"

"You smell of beer and space. You are of the Haakon Marines," the other minotaur said, wrinkling her nose. "We shall fight!"

They bellowed and charged.

"Any bets?" James asked, turning himself around fully to watch.

"My money's on Tala." Esk remarked.

Swarm agreed. "Must side with our minotaur, our of loyalty!"

"Either way I'm a winner. How often do you get to see two minotaurs fight?" James fanned himself with his hand.
After a moment he added, "Could someone get something sharp and trigger my First Law to make me stay where I am please? If nobody gets me bound in the next thirty seconds or so, I'll probably end up trying to break up this fight, which will go badly for me."
Probably not a good idea to teach this truck to Esk, but it was better than being pulverized by a minotaur.

Rigel looked to James then sighed and pulled a small knife from his boot, a gift from Dawn. He let James see it, but tried to not let it be seen by anyone else so they wouldn't get tossed out "Alright, if you interfere, I'll have to cut myself, that good enough for you?"

The First Law clicked onto that statement, and James smiled gratefully. "Thanks, man. I think I owe you another drink."

Tala and the other minotaur started wrestling and snorting, accidentally knocking over a table in their enthusiasm. People who were in their way scampered for the sidelines.

Rigel smiled and put the blade away then looked to the fight again "Nah, just be ready to pay up when you lose" He said, joking a little to lighten the mood.

Esk stared at James for a moment, then back to the fight. "What IS the deal with those laws?" He asked, not taking his eyes off the minotaurs.

James grinned at Rigel. "I'm a good loser, don't you worry."
He glanced at Esk before returning his attention to the fight, "The Laws are stupid, I'm not. With planning, they can be worked around or rendered ineffective."

The minotaurs rolled in the floor punching each other, one shouting obscenities in Common, the other in her tribe's native tongue. Apparently Tala forgot her new language when exposed to too much alcohol.

Esk snickered a little. "Clever robot." He watched the minotaurs, clearly amused. "If she gets arrested, who's bailing her out?"

Swarm cheered Tala on.

"Not me. I need my money for sensible things, like sunglasses and booze," James said. "Space station security is usually pretty understaffed though, maybe they'll figure a couple tables aren't worth arresting anyone over."

Tala trapped the smaller minotaur under herself and bellowed something in her native language. When not even the other minotaur understood, she repeated in Common. "I am victorious! My people speak of me with pride!"

The other minotaur snorted. "I am not drunk enough. I was doomed to fail from the start."

"You are a pitiful loser. Drink, and gain strength!" Tala declared, standing so the other minotaur could get up.

"I will, battle-friend!"

James sighed. "At least we got to see some hot minotaur babes wrestling." He started transferring money to the others' accounts.
