Okay, so my 16th birthday was last month and apparently it’s a big deal cuz my mom said it was my “suite 16” or whatever. Anyway, my mom gave me ownership of the ship we’d been fixing up!! I named it “Dahlia”. I hired my own pilot cuz I spent so much time learning how to fix this thing that I never had a chance to learn how to fly it! Her name’s Aeria Solista. And my mom insisted Harvey come along on my first job ‘case things don’t go smooth. HA! What an understatement. I’ll get to that, though.
So I picked up a job from this Blue Sun rep. All I had to do was fly her and her cargo to Athens. Simple, right? Anyway, I picked up some passengers at the Eavesdown Docks and then we went on our merry. Lemme see, our passengers were the Blue Sun rep (Claire Madison), some captainy type named Nico Liu Pang Lodani, some jerk named Rufus, and a fearsome looking lady named Lydia Hodges(???).
Everyone pretty much kept to themselves until dinner. Lodani came up to help me cook. All I had was some protein, though. It didn’t come out too bad. Dinner was kinda awkward. Nobody talked much. But after dinner Harvey wanted to talk to me private cuz apparently he used to work with Claire and he thought that there might be a problem and I thought that was weird but clearly it was a problem cuz the next thing I knew Claire grabbed me and put a gun up to my head and started yelling at Harvey and I was SO SCARED!!!
We were locked in Harvey’s room and I heard banging on the door and that made Claire mad which was also scary but then I think someone shot the door open? And then I guess everyone started shooting and I almost shat myself but then Harvey got his sword and then Claire let me go so I got the hell outta there as fast as I could!!
When things quieted down, I slowly made my way back over to see what was going on. It looked like everyone had everything under control. They were arguing about what to do with her and I guess they weren’t paying much attention because she managed to get away and head up toward the shuttle bay. I heard Lodani yell something about cutting power to the hangar bay so I ran down to the engine room as fast I could and went to blackout.
I sat in the dark for what seemed like a very long time. Then Aeria commed me to let me know I could turn it back on. It took me a minute cuz I couldn’t see anything. Someone told me to grab rope? I brought it up and they tied her up and locked her in the quarters Lodani was staying in. Then I guess we decided to open the cargo so I hacked into the locking mechanism AND THERE WERE BODY PARTS INSIDE!! Like, inside parts. I almost threw up.
Harvey found us a buyer for the guts and also found some guy to come take Claire off our hands. Which was a relief. First we dropped off Rufus on Athens, but Lodani and Lydia decided to stay when I offered them jobs. I figured I could use someone like Lydia incase we get into trouble again and Lodani seemed like someone who can get things done.
We met up with Billingsly on Whitefall and got rid of Claire (thank god!!!) and then set up a meeting with a doctor named Sarah (I think?) to sell the body bits. Unfortunately, we could only get a couple crates of grade a food stuffs and a small crate of fresh veggies and fruit. Then we fueled up and now we’re looking for our next job. Hope my mom doesn’t find out how much trouble I’ve gotten myself into. She’d probably take away my ship.
