Re: Open Space and Asteroid Field

├óÔé¼┼ôBooks?├óÔé¼┬Ø Malora stared at Daniel levelly for a moment. ├óÔé¼┼ô├óÔé¼┬ªYeah, we├óÔé¼Ôäóve got a whole library actually, two stories, floor to ceiling, any book you could imagine. Pretty sure we even have a pop-up book section, if you├óÔé¼Ôäóre into colors and pictures.├óÔé¼┬Ø She watched him, a smile growing as his face lit in excitement, then narrowed in suspicion, and finally registered clear uncertainty. It couldn't be helped; she grinned good naturedly, her eyes sparkling with amusement, leaning back in her booth once again. ├óÔé¼┼ôSorry. I├óÔé¼Ôäóll be nice now. Haven├óÔé¼Ôäót seen a book in years, Logan, and even if we DID have a massive floating library, I doubt I├óÔé¼Ôäód have time to read anything. But hey, thanks for cleanin├óÔé¼Ôäó the ├óÔé¼╦£fresher.├óÔé¼┬Ø There was a muted crunch as she finished her candy. ├óÔé¼┼ôYou├óÔé¼Ôäóre braver than I am, that├óÔé¼Ôäós for sure.├óÔé¼┬Ø

Chewing idly on the lollipop stick, Malora played with the edge of the table, picking at a dent in the surface as she studied him openly. He looked a little uncomfortable, but he was on a ship full of strangers. Strangers who ├óÔé¼╦£read├óÔé¼Ôäó weapons like he read books. The guy was way out of his element and if he wasn├óÔé¼Ôäót floundering yet, it was probably fast comin'. Making him comfortable was more of a job for Myranda or Sam. They were social. Hell, even Liya, explosions and fire extraordinaire would probably have been a better ├óÔé¼╦£welcoming├óÔé¼Ôäó crew than Malora. She was bad at small talk and she knew it. She also knew that if she got Daniel talking about HIS world, he├óÔé¼Ôäód keep talking until the end of days. Glasses, likes books, is leading search for ancient artifacts. Yeah. She knew the type.

Malora shot Daniel a quirky half-smile. ├óÔé¼┼ôSo, you├óÔé¼Ôäóre the artifact guy, right? Smart one o├óÔé¼Ôäó bunch? I kinda slept through the presentation, if there was one. You, uh├óÔé¼┬ª You ever worked with this Dante guy before? And what├óÔé¼Ôäós the deal with this artifact anyway?├óÔé¼┬Ø

Re: Open Space and Asteroid Field

Raised hopes only to have them crushed with a laugh, Daniel should have expected as much, but he wasn't upset about it, in fact he laughed along with her knowing how silly the question must have been now that he thought about it, or it could have been the lack of sleep giving him the giggles. He nodded, still laughing, as she thanked him for cleaning the bathroom, "Don't thank me yet, you haven't seen it."

Seeing her appraise him was a little strange for him, especially since she was doing it so openly, he didn't normally get it from someone so attractive but he figured that she was here because the captain wanted to size him up a bit more than he already had. Daniel did the same to her, he wanted to know who exactly he was working with and so far he had liked Jace and Sam, though his recollection of Sam was limited since the attack. Mack was alright as well, but Daniel didn't feel as comfortable around him, at least not alone, he couldn't tell if the man was insane or on his way there, or just playing the part, since mind games are an effective stategy.

"The artifact guy? Is that what they're calling me?" He jested, "I suppose so, though I wouldn't say I'm the smart one of the bunch just yet, there are a lot of smarts out there, I'm pretty book smart though." He smiled as he finished, he was being modest of course, but with reason, he wanted to identify with these people and earn their trust and no one trusts someone if they think they're looking down on them. In Daniel's experience if someone openly says they're smarter than you then they think you're beneath them, he didn't like feeling that way and he wouldn't want someone feeling that way because of him. "And don't worry, there wasn't a presentation, not yet anyway."

His brow furrowed slightly at the mention of Dante and he cleared his throat, then started to fidget around, the subject clearly made him slightly uncomfortable but mainly because Dante seemed crazier than Mack and much more uncontrolled or unstable, "Dante?...Uh. No." He paused a second or two and then scooted closer to her, lowering his voice, "I thought I was supposed to meet a man named Dorian in the bar, but I think he ran away when those things came. I'd never met either of them before then, but Dante seems...unhindged. Between you and me, I haven't had much chance to talk to him though, and part of me wants to keep it that way. Just make sure you stay cautious with him." He nods then scoots back to his original spot, "Anyway you asked about the artifact," his voice returned to it's normal tone, "it's called the Eye of Ono Kli, there isn't a lot of information on it but what is known is largely considered a myth." He decided not to get too into detail unless she asked, something told him that she wasn't actually interested in a history lesson and as he suspected earlier she was probably only here to size him up.

Re: Open Space and Asteroid Field



Thank you, Seros. I can see -- he'll do what needs doing. Not many would.



I need to help him. This is why we're here. To get healed. You've provided us with a future I hadn't thought possible. This place, it's a haven. I can see that now. Look -- you said before that you'd disembark here, and I can think of a thousand reasons why you should. But for the one reason I can't put my finger on, the reason just out of reach, like an itch I can't scratch -- I think you should stay. I can't force you, and if you have to go, ok, go. You've done me and mine a great service.



Right. Time to get you out of there, Trashcan.

"...Three days. Five if you want some snazzy new power upgrades. Gonna need a new reactor anyway, so you might as we... NO!"

"Don't touch that! Can't you see he's been through hell? You can't just poke around inside his head like some freakin' engine housing. Go help the droids get the ship out of the... uh, ship. Or something. Just don't try and take anything apart, you'll probably just make it worse." "Uh..." "...Indy? Send a couple droids in here to carry the R2 unit to the workshop."
