Tojoyama


The four members of the Alliance Quad had been professional and polite. One of them, Gunnery Sgt Jack 'Hickory' Hailey, approached and offered work. Though the specifics were still to be discussed, Hickory indicated to former acquaintance Newt Declan that he was part of an anti-slavery group that wished to target a slavery ring which had a 'processing' place out on the edge of the rim.

With the exception of Mylena Yee, Newt Declan and Travis Chao the rest of the company disbursed after receiving their share of the bounties.

Travis Chao left Mylena and Newt on their little shuttle, Ruby Rose. The shuttle was now theirs after putting in the payment on the rent and purchase clause of the rental contract. Dizzy did a little repairs before she took off. Travis wished her well and hoped she'd be back. She seemed to have a good hold on the little ship and how to keep it flying.

Chao headed into the Greenleaf Skyplex to look for some hired help. A mechanic and perhaps a gun. From what Hickory had told them, and some of it had been restricted, but he did say to dress for very cold. 'No matter where we land.' Well, that usually meant St. Albans.

Mylena Yee

Once the Alliance personnel had taken off Mylena headed back in and retrieved her fur.  She felt kind of bad about it now, but on the other hand the animal was already dead, no sense letting the death be in vain.  Once they got back to the shuttle she rummaged in her case and made some willow bark tea for her ribs and made a plaster of willow and eucalyptus to make it a little easier to breath and sooth her ribs before placing her arm in a sling to rest her shoulder.  She wouldn't let Newt fret over her too much, even though he tried.  She spent a day or so resting and taking it easy, spending much of her time in meditation.

When she was feeling better she set about making the room on the shuttle that she and Newt had claimed as their own feel like a home, rather that just a room on a rented shuttle. 
Pale death visits with impartial foot, the cottages of the poor and the castles of the rich.

Newt Declan

Newt knew that Mylena wouldn't allow him to fret over her much,but he also knew that she was deeply aware at just how much her Star loved her. Newt made it his duty while they were docked on the station  to pamper his beloved.

He picked up her favorite noodle dish along with some rice wine. He selected a few Sunflowers into a romantic bouquet. The last thing took a bit more skill to find as well as skill to master. But for his Spark he would hold back a supernova if needed.

The last item was Solar Moon Icecream on a stick. Only a few vendors actually knew how to properly make it, though many would try to duplicate the secret. With items in hand and a smile upon his face,Newt would return to their little slice of the Verse.
He would present his love with all the kisses and keep her safe until she felt more comfortable.

Travis Chao

Travis greeted Newt and Dizzy while Mylena recuperated. He had already passed on his accolades to everyone for their valiant performance and heroic actions. It was part in jest but all sincere. He liked these new folk and hoped their association would last.

This new venture though made him worry. This was vigilante type work, noble perhaps, but definitely in the gray area. And that was a rationalization.

"I'm going on station to check out these old mates of yours Newt, do a little background check, make sure we're not getting hoodwinked into something we'd best fly clear of.  Dizzy, you mind coming along and we'll pick up those parts you want for Rose."

After a bit of general conversation he headed out to prepare for their meeting later with mister Hickory and others.


"When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or person, don't be surprised they learn the lesson."

Dizzy Mcgee

"I'm going on station to check out these old mates of yours Newt, do a little background check, make sure we're not getting hoodwinked into something we'd best fly clear of.  Dizzy, you mind coming along and we'll pick up those parts you want for Rose.

Looking up from the laptop as Travis called out to her, she gave a slight smile at oppotunity to get off the ship much less a chance to go parts hunting.

Sure thing let's see what we can dig up especially as nothing worse than being stuck in the arse end of the verse and not having that spool of wire or a roll of fancy tape.[/color]

she says closing the lid of her laptop and packing it into her day bag which she now threw onto her back in one almost smooth motion as she hopped up and went after Travis.

Anything in perticular you want me to be on the look out for?
