Kadrok wrote:Out Of Character: Click to revealShowHalf a day?! How much time has lapsed?! Let me just get my bearings... Art has gone straight from where to his room?
Herowannabe wrote:Out Of Character: Click to revealShowPetty is exaggerating. It's been roughly 20 minutes since the meeting in the lounge broke up. Art has returned straight from the balcony.
Kadrok wrote:"Oh, you know how it is... secret meetings and what-not. Say," The Obligator seems to have an idea, "Can you do me a favour? I will be leaving the group for a brief period on Jaira's orders... I'm concerned that in my absence the crew will be... hasty... with this 'Gen' sitution. I must confess, you wouldn't have been my first choice, but would you be willing to look out for Gen's interests in my absence?"

"Sure thing, 'Gator. 'S long as you gimme a little somethin' back. 'Don't you be givin' out no clips without gettin' a clip or two back. Clip for clip,' as my ma used to say. So how's about it, eh? You got a clip for my purse? And if I might be standin' against the crew entire to keep someone alive what's already done for one o' us, it's gotta be a good one, dunn'it? Tell me what you 'n she talked 'bout, and I'll see no one does what they oughtn't to Gen."

Kadrok wrote:"Tell you what Jaira and I talked about, and you'll 'see no one does what they oughtn't to Gen'..." The Obligator repeats, thoughtfully. He grins mischieviously, "I agree to your terms." He pauses, and then begins, "Jaira asked if I would investigate Ministry Records to try and learn something about this magic sword of Gen's; I agreed; she asked if I would go alone, or if I would take one of you; I expressed surprise at having the option to go it alone, and we talked about Kelsier, and the nature of his crews, how he'd trust his people and what-not... she expressed a desire to foster that kind of trust among the members of this crew, a goal I agree with, I might add. Jaira is a good woman, and you should help her however you can... but I am getting sidetracked... we talked about the time I met Kelsier, and I decided I would hire my own protection, in order that the crew not be undermanned. We exchanged pleasantries and parted ways. And that was it. Nice doing business with you."
BubbaFett1936 wrote:"She keeps an awful lot o' secrets for someone wantin' us to be all lovey-trusty," Petty said, then stopped, as something the Obligator slipped into his statement settled into Petty's thoughts.
"Wait, you...met the Survivor? Well, ain't you jus' full o' surprises? You 'n' I ain't never met before, yeah? It'd be quite a shock for me if you laid that on the table, it would!" Petty laughed. "Well, we'll hafta talk 'bout that 'nother time then, won't we? You meetin' the Survivor, and all."
His smile changed to a grimace for a moment as something else occurred to him. "'Nother thing we might talk 'bout when you get back, you're an Obligator, yeah? So you've had access to lots o' the history? Do the names Hilbrek, Jonuth, 'n' Arrella Tyrendian from the Southern Dominance mean anythin' to you? Or somethin' to do with the Bordoux affair, or Inquisitor Choren? Somethin' we came 'cross while lookin' at Kenner's body's had me...vexed."
