Upon Celestial Tiger: Chapter One

Post by Kooshie on Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:51 pm

First topic message reminder :

A small, fast space yacht. The last owner named it Celestial Tiger.

Three small bedrooms (with bunks), one bathroom. Very small storage hold. combined dining/living area. Everyone's going to hate each other by the end of this road trip.

Ethan nodded. "Sorry, Rigel. Still getting used to having a new owner." He tried to not sound completely pissed off by this situation. Ugh.

"Androids aren't permitted on this station alone, unless they wear a badge," the security guard said to Rigel. "If you have errands to run, you'll have to go with your android, unless you have a spare badge somewhere."

~~
Tala looked with Swarm and Sawna for anyone to ask for information. "A family of three!" She asked a security guard, "Adults and a teen girl! Who sold them a ship, do you know?"

"Can we escort him?" Swarm asked the guard. "Or does it have to be the owner?"

"Yeah, she had blue eyes, left a half day ago on a small, fast ship. Made some of the men mad, since she kept giving them all those doe eyes." A female said with a frown.

~

Rigel sighed and rubbed his eyes "Fine, we don't have an extra badge."

"Do you have the description of the ship, or know where we can find the former owner of it?" Tala asked.

~~
"It has to be the android's owner who escorts them," the security guard told Swarm, "Sorry." She didn't look sorry, "I recommend keeping your android here, this station isn't very friendly to androids anyway."

"Oh, I hadn't noticed," Ethan muttered.

Rigel sighed and rubbed his temples "Fine, he can watch the ship I guess." He said, looking unhappy about the turn of events.

~~~
The woman looked at Luka then glanced around before standing. "Come with me." She said quietly.

Ethan nodded. "Guess I'll stay here. Have fun looking around," he said.

The security guard shot them a last condescending smile. "Well I'm glad we have this sorted out." She headed off.

Ethan glared daggers after her.

Luka looked wary, but nodded and stood, following the woman.

---

Swarm watched the guard go. "Maybe it's better this way, some places are violent toward androids." They mused to Rigel.

Rigel sighed and nodded then looked to Ethan "You know what the badge looks like? If so we can make one for you to wear when we encounter places like this."

~~
The female led Luka to a more private area then looked to her, pulling out a tablet and bringing up a picture "They bought my ex's ship for far less than it was worth. I know they cheated him and therefore cheated me since the profit was supposed to be split between us. Problem is, they did something to him so he still thinks it was the best deal he ever made and many here are loyal to him, so they won't say anything against him. So here's the deal, you take me with you and I give you the tracker code I had put on the ship."

Ethan bristled a bit again, he was even more irritable now his chance to get off the ship had been taken from him in the most insulting way he could think of, but he nodded. "I don't know exactly what they look like, but we can check online, to find the size and design specifications. I hear the Terran Empire is very picky about this, so we'll want to be very careful to get it right."

Luka blinked, looking at the tablet and nodding. "They're dangerous people." She spoke in hushed tones. "going up against them could be suicidal." but she had a tracker code, eugh. "Come talk to my captain alright?" She understood a little at least, a bad deal was a bad deal and using what was probably magic to get it was even worse. Scumbags, they deserved what was coming to them.
Still, could they trust this random woman?
Wasn't her call. "Follow me." She gestured. "look for a giant shouty minotaur."

Rigel nodded then smiled a little "A fake badge for a fake owner" He shrugged "Let's get busy."

~~~
"Minotaur?" The female blinked then nodded and followed quietly, putting the tablet away again.

Ethan looked grim. "Wish I'd thought of this before I signed up for this mission. I think Asher has a magic necklace I could have borrowed." He looked at Rigel, "I think the badges are supposed to be plastic, so it should be cheap at least to make one."

~~
Tala was still questioning guards in the ship docks. Loudly. It would be easy enough to follow the sound of her voice.

Rigel nodded and looked for a computer to pull up the specs on the badges. "Yeah, a point that slipped our minds on the way out, but one we can rectify thankfully."

~~~
The female followed Luka to the minotaur, frowning. She looked terran, with curly auburn hair and grey eyes. She was tall, standing at 6 feet without heels, but she was skinny as well.

"Tala!" Luka tried to get her attention, indicating she come talk to this person. Maybe somewhere else... where her loud voice didn't carry so much.

Tala trotted over to Luka and the woman, sniffing the air curiously. "Greetings! You have found someone of interest?" She asked Luka, ears twitching forward.

~~
Ethan watched Rigel's research curiously. "God those badges are ugly," he muttered. "How are we going to make one? Do we have a 3D printer?" He really didn't know how to make stuff, his owners had all been financially very well off, and bought nearly everything.

"I'm not talking in plain sight like this, got somewhere we can go?" The female asked. She didn't smell like a terran despite her looks.

~
"Have you seen one?" Rigel looked around, wondering if they could be that lucky or if he would have to actually make one like he had planned.

"I don't think we have a printer on board this ship. Maybe they do on the space station, but maybe we don't want to deal with those worthless people at all," Ethan said. "Do you have other ways to make this badge?"

Rigel nodded and chuckled "The old fashioned way, by hand" He said and went to find a knife and block of plastic to use and start whittling it down.

Ethan watched Rigel work."Well I guess that's a solution I hadn't thought of," he said. He paced a bit, trying to ease his pent up frustration while Rigel worked. At least his physical sensation code made pacing actually had some effect on his thought processes, but it didn't help a whole lot.

"Hey, see if you can find some paints to put on this thing so we can make it look real" Rigel said after a little while of seeing Ethan pace. Hey, it was a bit distracting.

Luka nodded. "she's part owner of the ship they bought, we think..." She explained quietly. "Let's go somewhere less crowded."

"Okay," Ethan said. He went to the storage room to look around, They'd better have paints here. If they didn't... grrr, he so didn't want to give this space station any business!

~~
Tala nodded. "Excellent." She looked around thoughtfully, hmm, they seemed to have a lot of security cameras here, then led Luka and the woman to a dark alley where there didn't seem to be any. A couple were in there, making out. She pawed her hoof impatiently and they scrambled away.
Tala led them in. "Tell us all!" She told the woman cheerfully.

Rigel continued to work on the badge, making it to the specks provided

~~
The woman looked at Tala then to Luka "Take me with you and I will give you the code to track my ex's ship that the queen is on.

Tala twitched her ears curiously. "Why do you desire to come with us?"

~~
Ethan searched for a while, and eventually found a can of white paint and a can of black paint. He hauled them out to Rigel. "Think we can mix the shade of gray they use for the background?" He asked Rigel.

Luka frowned. "How... queen?" She looked to Tala, suddenly way more wary of this woman.

Tala snorted thoughtfully at Luka's sudden uncertainty. She had assumed Luka had just let the title slip while talking to this woman, which would have been bad, but if Luka hadn't, then this woman might know a lot about what was going on. Interesting.

"Because I can't stay on this rock anymore and...because I can't stand by and do nothing while my queen is in danger" She said quietly then flushed "I couldn't do anything before, they put my ex under some kind of spell or something, messed with his mind and he's the leader of this place, unofficially of course, so no one would even think of crossing him to help me." She said then shook her head, looking around before shifting to a star dragon. Her stars had redish halos around some of them though she shifted back quickly "No one here knows and if you say anything I will deny it."
