You're late, Captain Reynolds. We were under the impression that we had a business agreement with you. Don't tell me you've forgotten so soon?
 
 
 
Malcolm Reynolds: Now the way *I* see it...in_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 05:05 am (UTC)
I hadn't forgotten nothing. We just ran into a bit of trouble on the way here.
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 05:19 am (UTC)
We're working on a schedule here, Captain, and for what we're paying you, we expected promptness. I suppose common courtesy is too much to ask.

What sort of trouble did you run into, exactly?
Malcolm Reynolds: Stand tallin_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 05:32 am (UTC)
We got hit by a merc ship looking for an easy target. They caught us unawares and made off with most of the cargo.
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 05:37 am (UTC)
Oooh, that is a shame. Now how exactly do you plan to compensate us for the loss? That was an irreplaceable piece of technology, you know. Quite valuable. Its loss means a great step backward for Reial's leading scientists.
Malcolm Reynolds: Just hear me out!in_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 05:51 am (UTC)
Tell us where you are and me and my officers will be down to negotiate. Trust me, we want this to get worked out just as much as you do.
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 06:46 am (UTC)
Oh, there's no need to negotiate. We know exactly what we want as compensation.
Malcolm Reynolds: Don't mess with thisin_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 06:49 am (UTC)
And what exactly would that be?
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 06:56 am (UTC)
A little girl we like to call Windy. You've seen her around the ship, no doubt. Blue eyes, slight frame, long blue hair?
Malcolm Reynolds: Stand tallin_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 03:58 pm (UTC)
Just what the hell are you folk getting at?
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 04:02 pm (UTC)
What are we getting at? If you want the truth, Malcolm Reynolds, why don't you try being a little more honest with us about what happened to that clank?
Malcolm Reynolds: Don't mess with thisin_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 04:11 pm (UTC)
Like you were with us?
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
Touché. However, we are the only ones who can afford to be dishonest here. Your ship has been a bit of a bother to us -- nothing serious, of course, or we would have dealt with you already. As it is, we're willing to cut our losses in this case.

Trade one weapon for another, you might say.
Malcolm Reynolds: Ready...aim...in_the_latin on March 24th, 2011 04:35 pm (UTC)
What do you mean, weapon?
tidesnpc on March 24th, 2011 04:45 pm (UTC)
That's for us to know. Honestly, this chat was merely a formality. We already have the girl.

Consider our agreement terminated.

And should you cause us any more trouble, the same will go for your little ship.
Malcolm Reynolds: broodingin_the_latin on March 25th, 2011 02:14 am (UTC)
You don't have to worry about trouble from us. I'm no bleeding heart, and I know a losing battle when I see one. You won this round.
tidesnpc on March 25th, 2011 02:30 am (UTC)
"This round?" There will be no more rounds, if you know what's good for you.
Malcolm Reynolds: Just hear me out!in_the_latin on March 25th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
Just a figure of speech, doc. No need to get touchy about it.

Your damn clank does not equal one thirteen-year-old girl's life. Who the fuck made you God?
tidesnpc on March 25th, 2011 01:34 am (UTC)
Temper, temper. You don't know what you're talking about. Consider yourself lucky that we decided only to take her back.
Hisoka Kurosaki: If only I could do more than waitson_of_the_lake on March 25th, 2011 01:46 am (UTC)
Back? You think she belongs to you?
tidesnpc on March 25th, 2011 02:36 am (UTC)
Of course. She would not be who she is without us.
Hisoka Kurosaki: and he's done it againson_of_the_lake on March 25th, 2011 03:42 am (UTC)
How so?
tidesnpc on March 25th, 2011 04:01 am (UTC)
That is of no concern to you.

I suggest you forget about her.
Hisoka Kurosaki: don't care / feigned indifferenceson_of_the_lake on March 25th, 2011 04:23 am (UTC)
*snorts* As you say.

*shuts the feed off*

Where have you taken her?

[It was one thing if she left on her own, but this...]
