[D6 Space] Power in the 'Verse IC - Deadwood

Recommended Posts

Yumide turns to face the new voice. "Hello there. Yes any clothing, I have a shop in town if you'd wish to brows, or if you would prefer something identifying to yourself I can make a gown especially to your fitting?" he proposes ending in a gentleman's bow.

 

Following his bow the tailor wipes his brow with a handkerchief. "Perhaps I should carry an icebox with me?"

"Cute couple." Emmett chuckles. As folks leave them alone, he comments. "What do ya make of it, Cap'n? I kin understand 'em bein' wary o' strangers, but this here's borderin' on paranoia."

 

Emmett turns to Yumide. "I dunno 'bout no fancy new threads, but this here ole duster o' mine could use a patch er two." He pokes a finger through one of the bullet holes from the Reaver fight.

"Perhaps they are afraid of rioters from Ariel or other mischief in the uneasy universe? Or for that matter common criminals, with this being the fastest racer in the area then it makes sense for security to be tight, there is a lot of money in sports"

 

Kagome turns and smiles at Yumide, "I wouldn't seek the services of a tailor if I intended to buy off the shelf, so something custom. My ship is the Phoenix, perhaps a gown to match the theme"

 

Kagome then turns back to Emmett, "And First Officer Stapp, your Captain's orders are for you and Miss Yu to see the tailor together"

'Captain?! I'll need to give it more than my all on this one.' runs through his head, then he smiles with a continuing thought 'need to get a good relationship... maybe they'll go out of there way next time to come here!'

 

"Lets see, two repairs and a custom." he'll nod to himself "Can do." Ruko turns to Stapp "Lets just get the damaged materials and head to my shop for top quality, but first a question before I forget."

 

He'll turn back to the Captain of the Phoenix and speak in a whisper "Daisa-sama*, would you like me to eye your measurements as they are generally private?"

 

((Perception for eyeing 4d- 4+6+5+6=21))

 

*Kaigun Daisa is captain

Kagome then turns back to Emmett, "And First Officer Stapp, your Captain's orders are for you and Miss Yu to see the tailor together"

 

Dumbfounded, Emmett slumps his shoulders. "Gorramit, Cap, how's could I be such an idgit? Miss Yu. O' course Miss Yu! Either I been out in the Black fer too long a spell or this here heat really is gittin' to me." He slugs back another gulp of his drink. "Thank ya, ma'am. What better way ta treat yer gal than with a set o' fine threads, eh?"

Turning to Emmett "Well then Lets get Yu-san, the offending coats and head my shop." Ruko states with a smile, gesturing for the XO to lead him. "If you don't mind me asking, does the Phoenix run the Colony course much?"

Before Emmett can reply, Sheriff Stillman returns from the kitchen with a cutting board, bread, butter, and a platter of meats and cheeses to make sandwiches. "Somethin' ta tide y'all over 'til supper." His wife returns with a pitcher to refill the drinks.

 

Little Red steps in from outside, an impish grin on his face. "Would ya care to take a look at the racer now, Kagome? Ya can bring your drink, and some grub if ya like..."

 

An incongruous voice, amplified by loudspeaker, is heard in the living room. "Sheriff J., we got an inbound kinda hot..."

 

Stillman crosses to a wall panel after swiftly putting the food on a sideboard. "What kinda hot? Runnin' no containment hot or fast hot?"

 

There is an agonizing pause before the voice responds. "Fast hot, Sheriff. Gettin' radiation on it... Hold on a sec..."

 

The mood in the house has changed in an instant. Little Red has come in and crossed to a sizable cabinet containing rifles, shotguns, assault rifles, and pistols. He looks to his uncle anxiously. Sheriff Stillman waits, like something carved out of the rocks of this barren world.

 

"Negative radiation, Sheriff J. Just heard from down south they got a flight plan. Li'l courier boat, makin' a delivery. Ain't nothin' but the mail."

 

Little Red crosses to the door. "Kagome?"

 

The mood in the room has shifted back as if nothing had happened. The Sheriff takes up the food tray and brings it to the low table, the perfect (if rough around the edges) frontier host.

Emmett pulls out his communicator and opens a link to the Phoenix. "Doc? Come in, Doc. Y'all there?"

 

"This is Doctor Chen, go ahead First Officer Stapp..."

"Doc, keep yer eyes an' ears open over there. These folk're extra jumpy right now on account o' some heavy Reaver shenanigans. And tell th' other Doc ta git ready with his gear. Should th' occasion arise where'n we need ta use it."

Kagome starts toward the mule hearing the news then stops and returns to grab a drink and make a sandwich then joins Little Red, "Definitely, I'd love to see the racer"

 

Little Red escorts Kagome alongside the house to the small hangar-like building where the racer is being worked on. Looking the racer over, it is clear to Kagome that such a beast would be far from legal on a Core world, but it appears to be well maintained.

 

"This is it. Gonna be bringin' home the platinum cup again this year. Ain't nothin' I seen in the 'Verse can take her, comin' off the line."

 

One of the mechanics wipes his brow. "Ain't exactly like you seen much o' the 'Verse ta be makin' a claim like that, Li'l Red."

Kagome walks around the thing and looks it over

 

"She looks most impressive, I have seen a fair deal of the 'Verse and may be inclined to agree with Little Red. Certainly far more exciting than a mule"

"Wanna take her out to the south flats after supper? I can show ya how she goes. I'll watch over the mule while you turn 'er loose. We could do it here, but Uncle Justice don't wanna spook the livestock."

 

The mechanic finishes his weld and stands. "Boy, that ain't no way to be pitchin' woo."

 

Little Red flushes as red as his name. "I ain't pitchin' a gorram thing, Solomon!" He looks at Kagome. "Pardon my cussin'."

Little Red grins back.

 

Solomon shakes his head and goes to store the welder in its box. "Well, I ain't had no meanin'-full time with a lady goin' on three year. Once my wife passed, didn't much see the point. Conjure I done forgot how woo gets pitched, an' no lie. 'Verse just moves on, don't she? Have fun on the flats, you two. Don't bust 'er up none, we got a big day comin' an we'll need 'er all feisty-like an' purrin'."
