Cain studied the planet as they descended, to him it looked like many other planets.....he assumed that Telle would be a city like many others he had visited...he noted the Cobra Pride ships and dismissed them, he had no quarrel with the Cobra.....he started pacing as the Hawk approached the space port, having remained on board during the last mission he was eager to set foot on terra firma....he grinned at Sally

"Are we there yet Captain?"

Just as Cain finished speaking there was a slight jolt, almost just a vibration as Erica brought the Ebon Hawk neatly down in the spaceport. Sally gave him a quick answering grin. "We are now." Out the window she could see a small group of government officials and guards approaching once the cargo ship had settled. By the time the crew got the the airlock they'd be waiting. "Well, let's go meet the natives." She said and lead the way down the short corridor and down the ladders of the Ebon Hawk until they reached the airlock.

Kaytee sighed as she followed Sally to the airlock-she wasn't so sure of this mission, but she followed captain's orders and only hoped she wouldn't have to do any speaking. She stood behind Sally as they all gathered at the airlock.

Sally smiled at her crew as they gathered at the airlock then stepped outside to meet the diplomats. "Welcome to Guda." The leader of them said as soon as the crew stepped outside into the mildly warn sunlight of the planet. "I am chancellor Ocato and these are my assosiates." Sally smiled politely to them and introduced her crew one by one. "I'm pleased to meet you all." Ocato responded with equal politeness. "Please come this way, we'll take you to the council chambers. If some of your crew want to explore and get to know our people they are quite welcome since I'm sure not all of them would want to sit around negotiating." Sally hid her surprise well. "That's a kind offer. But first let's get to the council chambers first?" Ocato nodded. "This way." And with that he, the other diplomats and the four guards started escorting the crew through the city.

Tommy looked round as they walked through the City.  He stayed close behind Sally as the little group were escorted to the Council chamber.

The City was much like any other.  The buildings seemed to be in good repair and there were shops open for business.  It might be nice to get the chance for a look round.  He could think of several items that he would like to buy.

Kaytee followed behind Sally, and next to Tommy, as they were being escorted to the council chambers. She would like nothing better than to explore the city-rather than be negotiating, even if she didn't buy anything-wandering around aimlessly was still far better than being stuck with a bunch of people.

Cain walked beside Erica....he lowered his voice

"I would much rather explore, negotiating is so dull, unless it is for personal gain.....negotiating is for diplomats and I am not a diplomat"

Sally thought about whom she'd keep with her in the council chambers and who she'd let out to go wandering around town as they walked through the city and into a building then rode an elevator up several floors and into a large circular room with the seemingly universal setup of a large table with chairs. Most of the council were already seated and there were even two Nietzscheans sitting at the table which made Sally groan inwardly. Showing none of her feelings she turned to her group. "Okay, I've heard Cain indicate he'd like to explore the city so Erica you can go with him." It was unlikely their pilot would have the temperament to sit through long negotiations. "I'll stay." Daze piped up, already taking a seat. Athea simply stood by Sally. As an actual high guard officer and her extensive knowlege would help her negotiate. "Kaytee I'm guessing you'll want to go explore." The halfling said matter-of-factly. "What about the rest of you?" She asked, giving a warm smile to Tommy.

"I would much rather explore, negotiating is so dull, unless it is for personal gain.....negotiating is for diplomats and I am not a diplomat"

Erica glanced up and sideways at Cain with a nod. "Oh, shopping is infinitely more exciting than negotiating," Erica agreed, ignoring the fact that Mr. Tall, Dark, and Mysterious hadn't actually mentioned shopping per se.

Once they reached the council chambers in the building, she grimaced. Why couldn't negotiations take place somewhere fun, why always in boring rooms where everyone just sat around. But when Sally instructed her to go exploring with Cain it was all Erica could do to keep from clapping.

"Oh yes!" she said with glee in her voice. Then quickly grew serious, glancing over at the people seated around the table. "Oh, I mean, erm, Aye, Captain, I'll keep an eye on him. We'll see what's going on out in the city."

Erica gave a formal nod to those at the table, her face still serious...but when she turned to face Cain she grinned. We are so out of here! she mouthed.  

The blond Nietzschean would wait a moment to see if Kaytee had exploring plans of her own, but she was itching to get out of the room.

Kaytee nodded at Sally when she said that she could go exploring. "Yes, I'd rather explore." Kaytee said. "If I'm needed, just let me know."

She really did prefer exploring over negotiating-as long as there weren't hoards of people around.

Teyna examined their surroundings carefully as she considered whether or not to stay at the negotiations. She wanted to explore the city, but most of the crew were going to do that, and if anything were to happen she'd be more useful with Sally. "I'll stay if you want," she offered, briefly wondering if the Captain would rather spend time alone with Tommy, she thought with a smirk.

"Okay, I've heard Cain indicate he'd like to explore the city so Erica you can go with him.

Cain nodded


"Thank you Captain.....

I'll keep an eye on him.

he looked down at Erica and frowned


"You'll keep an eye on me? If I remember correctly last time we went exploring you got yourself arrested and had to be rescued, so how about I keep an eye on you this time"

He glanced at Kaytee

"Kaytee do wish to join us, or would you prefer to explore alone?"

"Okay, that so wasn't my fault," Erica protested quietly. "However, if you'd feel better keeping watch over me, I won't deny your manly desires to protect," Erica remarked teasingly. She'd never dream of telling anyone, especially Cain, but it wasn't so bad thinking of him watching out for her.

Then she turned to their engineer. "Yeah, Kaytee, do you want to join us? I promise...well, he promises," she flicked her head toward the dark-haired, muscle-bound Nietzschean with them, "to not let me put us in any danger this time."

Kaytee smiled at Erica. "Yeah, I'll join you, at least until I'm more familiar with our surroundings." She said.

"Have fun," Tommy said.  That would leave three of them with the Captain.  He returned Sally's smile.  "I think that I am going to stay.  He knew that Sally would be perfectly safe with Athea, Teyna and Daze but he had decided while they were still on the Dawn that he wouldn't leave her side.

He just hoped that the negotiations wouldn't be as boring as he feared they might be.

Cain laughed

"Yes I promise, Erica will not endanger herself or us this time......but just to clarify little one, it has nothing to do with...how did you put it?...manly desires to protect you it is more self preservation"

He nodded at Tommy and led Kaytee and Erica away from the council chambers towards the elevator

Sally smiled to herself at those of her crew left to explore the city and took a seat with those that remained at the council table. She took a deep breath, now the negotiations would begin. She found it a little odd that she was acting as a diplomat for a restored commonwealth still, but years of dealing with cliens while working as the captain of a cargo runner had at least given her some patience in dealing with difficult people. It wasn't that much different really.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two of the soldiers guided Cain, Erica and Kaytee back through the building to the street outside where they then left them to explore the city on their own

"Right then!" Erica exclaimed when they were escorted outside. "Thank you, gentlemen," she smiled and waved at their guard escorts.

"Now what?" the blond young woman nearly rubbed her hands together in anticipation of shopping as she turned to Kaytee and Cain. "I suppose we could get to know people better...see what's going on around here, mingle, act like tourist..."

Truthfully Erica didn't know what they should do...or could do to help Sally or the negotiations. All this serious stuff they were involved in sort of mystified the Nietzschean.

"Well, we could meet some of the people, or go exploring, or both." Kaytee suggested.

Cain frowned

"Mingle?.....I don't have much experience of mingling.....he looked across the street and smiled....I do have one idea, we can act like tourists, mingle and eat...he put his hands on Ericas shoulders.....look over there little one, do you see what I see? Kaytee, do you like ice cream?
