"And what does a fine young man such as yourself do?" He enquired

The boy straightened a bit and answered, "Mostly I clean sir, but I've been known to help mister Shoddy with the meachanics a bit, and then I also shoot bad guys from time to time."

He smiled, feeling that he had adequately stated his duties on board the Monarch without undue embelishment. It was always good to be brief and to the point when answering his elders.

At that time, he little could dream how a disgruntled and ornery man he had so recently perfomed his last duty on sat grumbling in the side seat of the tiny transport that shadowed the Monarch on a dogleg course to its destination. "Gonna give that kid a lesson in manners," he mumbled.

"whassat?" querried his companion.

"Nuthin. Just drive." he snapped back.

While back on the ship, the friendly discussion around the table continued. Down below, the old man, refreshed by his nap, dressed himself with care and prepared to look about the little vessel he intended to call home for a while. His clothes now smelt only of being old fabric and just slightly of the must of long use. The man also smelt much less like the odd combination he had before of old sweat and food concentrate. Now the dominant smell was that of the soap in the passenger quarters, a cheap military surplus liquid detergent good for hair and body, as the label said in clear one centimeter letters.

He wandered out of his room in an aimless fashion, walking around the tiny lobby for a bit before coming out to the more open area adjacent to the medical bay and lower cargo bay door, and was pleased to see the room fitted out as a lounge with a couple of easy chairs and small couch with reading lamps protruding from the walls.

He found the stairs and started up them, smelling pleasant smells and hearing quiet, fairly happy conversation. He made his way towards the offering and came into the room. Looking around he quickly found where everything was situated, and hobbled towards the food and the cofee. At this time his costume was entirely visible, and seemed to consist of about five different layers of clothing, each compensating more or less for the failures of another. All the tones were old faded and muted except for the occasional flash of a scrap of deep blue or brown.

"Nin hao ma," he said in polite mandarin as he poured out a cup and shuffled towards a chair.

Gulliver suppressed and smile, and put a mild frown on his face. He liked this kid.
"Shoot bad guys?" He repeated, in a mildly shocked tone of voice. "Are you not a little young to be shooting people?" He asked in a kindly fashion. He already knew how hard life could be, and that sometimes it helped to start learning to defend oneself at a young age. Sadly he himself had never mastered the art of killing someone.

"Yes," the boy replied calmly and confidently, "Yes I am."

(( OOC - Moving this along ! ))

The Monarch sped along in the black, her sleek lines glinting in the light from various stars and planets, moons and other ships along this particular shipping lane. She'd be in the Black for about a week before they got to Lilac.

It didn't feel like they were on an old ship that had once been called The Minnow. Or that she had been a drifter. Or that she was, as Sam had once put it, Reaver bait. Sure, she handled a little different than the original Monarch. But she was home. And that was what mattered.


(( Next stop: "Violet Mine." ))
