Upon Vestia: Chapter Twenty-Nine

Post by flying_purple_monkfish on Wed Mar 21, 2018 6:47 pm

First topic message reminder :

Ivor was pretty thankful for Tala's quiet thoughts, if her unshielded thoughts were anything like her speaking voice, he'd have had a headache already.
He nodded slowly.

[The advantage of not being organic, parts can be replaced far easier.] Kay mused, smiling softly. [Who is going along?]

"Mourn's going, and Dawn. Rigel, of course, and Starr is sending Nova." Asher looked thoughtful, "I'm not sure who else will be going, Rigel is arranging that. I'm assuming Luka will be the pilot, since she's especially good at it." He smiled a bit, "Mourn and Luka can be a bit impulsive, but I'm sure we can convince them to be careful."

Kay nodded. [Maybe keep her on the ship.] He suggested. He wasn't sure how much she'd want to wander around a Terran business anyway, especially not one they knew were just slave traders under a different name, if indeed they were even aware of their hypocrisy. He preferred to believe Megabrain and other android manufacturers were just ignorant, it was less troubling.
[I doubt she'll let anyone else fly that ship though. Fleet pilots are extremely possessive of their vessels.] He managed a genuine smile.

"Might be a good idea," Asher agreed. He looked amused, "Is there some unspoken rule that every pilot has to be strangely attached to their ship? I recall encountering a lot of people like that back on the space station, and they seem common out here too."

Kay shrugged. [Pilots are just a bit odd i think.]

Asher considered that, remembering the many, many odd people he'd encountered on the space station. Nothing like a glorified truck stop days from anywhere to bring in the strange people. "I think you may be right," he agreed.
He looked up at Kay, "So, since I'm leaving tomorrow, what would you like to do before then?"

Kooshie wrote:Asher watched Kay, he didn't like how worried the guy was. And sadly, Kay's worry was completely justifiable and not at all possible to set aside. "Do you want to take a break for a bit?" he asked. "I have some things I want to tell you about work." Totally about work, and not just that he wanted to spend time with his boyfriend, really. Now there were androids everywhere and they didn't fully approve of his relationship, he'd started to develop a bit of Kay's desire for secrecy.

Tori was still pretending she wasn't listening in. She was pretty good at that.

~~
James thought he heard someone coming in. "Yo, who is it?" he called. Probably one of the Silver Devil crew, but other than that, who knew?
"It's just me." Rigel said as he came to find then. "Hi"

Asher considered that, wheeling kind of slowly down the hall as he thought. "There's all the usual things here on Vestia, books and movies and stuff. If we go to the city there's museums and parks and theaters," he said. "If we stay on Vestia there's paperwork too, although maybe you'd rather wait on that." Not something he'[d suggested much since he'd been injured, but if it might make Kay a little less gloomy then he might as well suggest it now. Then again, maybe it'd just make Kay gloomier because Asher was still damaged, and that might be depressing. Hmm. Heck, Asher didn't know. He'd always kind of stank at reading people.

~~
James smiled when Rigel came in. "Hey man, we were just talking about you. This is Nova, she's the bodyguard on this trip. And Nova, this is Rigel, the captain. I'm sure you guys will get along great."

Rigel and Nova shook hands in greeting. "So you are our security for this trip?" He asked.
Nova nodded and smiled, "Right, Starr wants you all to come back safely."

"Nova is going to set up a way to teleport Asher and probably you guys back if there's an emergency," James said. "She specializes in teleporting, which should be great for this." He looked curious, "We were wondering though, who, and how many people are you planning on bringing?"

Kay looked a little amused at the suggestion of paperwork, that euphemism always amused him. He looked thoughtful. [Matt refused to go to the museums with me, he whined like a child.]

"Well that's Matt's loss then," Asher said. "Museums are fun. Not that I've been to many, but the ones I've seen were, anyway. Want to visit one?" He had no clue what museums were around here, but maybe there were some interesting ones.

Kay nodded. [Let's go pretend to be cultured.] He smiled. It wasn't like they often got that chance.

Asher laughed at that thought. Neither of them were terribly cultured, were they? "We can find a modern art exhibit and discuss the subtle complexities of color," he said in what he hoped was a slightly upper class and sophisticated tone. "I'm sure we'll fit in well."

"True enough. And we both dress pretty nicely, so we might blend in better than most," Asher said. Other than his jeans, which weren't all that sophisticated looking, anyway. He smiled, and wheeled toward the teleporter to get to the lower floor.

Kay always dressed like he was about to teach a class, or maybe organize a library. He should fit right in in an art gallery.
He followed after Asher, smiling sadly. He was still super worried.

Asher glanced up at Kay, noticing his worry. Poor guy, this all had to be so hard for him. Asher had learned from a very young age what exactly his creators wanted him to be, and he knew how to put on that act pretty convincingly by now. It was scary to visit Mars of course, but it wasn't an entirely unknown situation for him, and that took some of the fear out of it. Of course, Kay--thankfully--didn't have that experience, which would make this more stressful.

He thought of something, and had the teleporter send them to the main floor so he could pick up that pendant that hid his robot-ness from his room. No need to draw attention to himself while they were out in the city.

Kay waited patiently, trying to stop himself from thinking about tomorrow and Mars. No, they were going to enjoy this day together it might be the last one they had He shook his head, trying to get those troubling thoughts out. Damnit.
He forced a smile when Asher came back with the pendant. [Good idea.]

Asher put on the pendant and tucked it into his shirt so it was hidden. "Thank goodness for magic," he agreed. He smiled back a little weakly. "Come on, let's go enjoy this city and its museums. We have nowhere else we need to be right now." He hoped Kay would be able to have a little fun at least. Seeing him so worried made Asher feel pretty guilty.

"I was thinking just minimal crew, less people to get in and out." Rigel replied, nodding at the idea. "Do you have the stones already?"

Nova shook her head then smiled a little "I have to make them in pairs, so they are tuned to one another from the start." She replied with a smile. These people were so easy-going about magic, it was refreshing.

James nodded. "Just you, Luka, Dawn, Nova, and my bro, then? Oh by the way, Mourn is planning to go with you guys, so that should be fun." He smiled at Nova, "I want to see these magic rock pairs when you get back. They really do sound neat."

Kay followed Asher, pausing at the ramp to put a hand on Asher's shoulder gently. A brief gesture of affection before they headed out into the city.

Rigel nodded then chuckled softly "Yeah, that sounds about right. He agreed with the list of crew.

Nova smiled then shrugged a little "Alright" She didn't mind showing off her magic a little, since this crew was 'safe'

Asher glanced up at Kay, smiling a little. He appreciated the gesture, and was glad they were spending this time together, even if the stress made it less pleasant. Ah well, at least they were here together for now.

He led the way into the city.
(To the city)
