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.

"Is there anything you won't come onto?" Esk asked James scornfully.

Swarm flew around Tala. "Great warrior, you have proven your worth in battle, may songs be sung of your strength and cunning."

"People who can't give consent for one reason or another, inanimate objects, and other robots," James said. "It's not ethical and/or fun to go after any of those guys. Although I guess I could flirt with you even while you're drunk, since I know you'd never accept my offers." He smiled brightly.

"You are a fine friend!" Tala told Swarm, "I would buy you a victory drink, although I do not know if you can drink at all!"

Esk grumbled. "Don't even think about it."

Swarm cheered various things. "Yes can drink, but we are small. Takes not much for us to be drunk. May not be able to fly."

"I totally did just think about it," James told Esk cheerfully, "I probably won't do it though, because just talking with you and not being angry is kind of nice."

"A shot glass of that excellent beer for the Swarm!" Tala thundered.

The bartender, who seemed to be utterly unconcerned by minotaur drama shrugged and got the requested drink.

"You don't have to drink it," Tala told Swarm, "But if you do, you may ride home on someone."

"Guess I'm designated driver," said James, amused.

Swarm settled on the bar again. Several of them actually would drink, clustering on the edge of the glass.

"You're getting the bugs drunk?" Esk asked, bemused. "Now that should be interesting." He sighed at James. "Fine, whatever. I don't really want to break my other hand." He was after all still in a cast and using one hand for everything was pretty damn irritating.

"Thank you friend," Tala said to Rigel. She watched Swarm with interest.

The other minotaur nodded proudly at Rigel's compliment. For all that she had lost, she was a minotaur, and they considered all valiant fights to be admirable at least.

"I wouldn't let that happen. I'm older and wiser now," James said to Esk. "Your hands are safe from my face."

Esk looked skeptical. "Mm, lesson learned, don't punch androids." He conceded. "Next time i'll just shoot you."

"Oh no, don't shoot James!" Swarm declared.

"Oh relax, I have no interest in spending any more time in the ship's brig."

"The First Law approves of that idea very much," James said dryly, "No risk of harm to your precious fleshy body."

"You are a credit to your species and their ideals," Tala said, swigging her latest beer and completely missing the irony in James' words.

James smiled happily at Esk, then looked at Swarm. "How's the beer?"

Swarm buzzed merrily. A few of their number had already collapsed on the bar, twitching.

"I guess you guys wouldn't handle your alcohol too well, tiny as you are," James said affectionately. "Hey, you said you'd look out for me, I'll totally look out for you."

"They are small but courageous," Tala said approvingly.

"I should probably get you guys back to the ship," James told Swarm. They looked pretty loopy, and he didn't want them to get hurt.

Some of the swarm protested, not that James could hear them. They were generally a bit too tipsy to spell right now.

Esk watched them with vague interest. "I wonder how their other parts will take this chunk being so drunk... " He mused, wondering if the drunkeness would be counteracted by the sober percentage of the overall swarm or not. Hive minds were wierd.

James laughed. "It'll be interesting to find out. Come on, guys," he said, holding out his hand on the counter so they could crawl up, "Let's get you home so you can sleep this off."

A few of the swarm flew into James, a couple flew the wrong direction and hit the wall a couple of times before turning around. it took a while for all of them to be gathered up, they were all so small and fragile. Those few who were sober flew around James, keeping an eye on the rest of their number.

"they must really trust you." Esk remarked cooly. "It'd be so easy to just crush them..."

The sober number buzzed irritatedly at Esk.

He shrugged. "Not everything I say is a threat you know."

"First Law, remember? Also I love these guys too much to hurt them, even if I could," James said, giving the bugs a fond smile. "Someone should probably come with me though, make sure no thugs try to beat me up. That wouldn't be good for these guys at all."

Esk sighed, looking from Rigel to Tala. Tala seemed pretty content just drinking and drinking, and Rigel seemed fairly happy to drink away his sorrows too. Esk on the other hand, wasn't overly fond of bars anyway and was suitably drunk.

"Don't try to come onto me, don't be annoying and if anyone attacks us, you run and I get to take all this pent up aggression out on them without you intervening, deal?" He stood up, paused, blinking away the sudden sweeping sensation of the alchohol. Okay, he was actually drunker than he thought. Huh..
He shook his head a few times, drained the last of his glass and walked over to James. "I kinda hope we find some thugs." He remarked, it would help heal his hand.

"I think I can do the first two things, and I can definitely do the third," James said with a grin. Hundreds of sentient, sapient beings crawling on him? Yeah, he'd have no trouble staying out of Esk's way if Esk got murderous. The needs of many outweigh those of one, after all.
He headed out of the bar with Esk. "Thanks, man."

Esk mumbled something non committal, he didn't bother bidding the others farewell either.

He kept pace with James, and lapsed into silence.

James decided that 'don't be annoying' probably meant 'don't talk', so he didn't. Instead he focused on not moving in any manner that might squish his tiny passengers. Poor things, they were so drunk.

The swarm clung on valiantly though, and their sober part kept a safe distance from Esk.

Two figures looked up from what they were doing as the trio passed by.

"Say, we know that guy," one of the two, a literally slimy woman, said to the other fairly loudly. "The abomination of a bounty hunter, hooking up with sex bots now."

Uh oh, thought James.
