The fish thing delivery went super smooth. Note to you, my faithful reader, that thing wasn’t related to Sponge. He didn’t really appreciate me asking, but I really didn’t mean anything by it. They look sorta the same and smell pretty—nevermind!
So we did make it to Gaved and it was pretty crazy. We had to bribe officials at the starport to even get passed their security. I guess I have seen my dad do that with “business associates” so I shouldn’t have been so surprised. I think once my legend has time to spread around the planets, this won’t happen again. We met up with the Tuscara people and it was a big snooze. Luckily Caine is a master when it comes to boring stuff, so he took care of all the meetings and working out a new contract. I’m not super clear on what’s going on with it, but I think we’re basically free agents but every once in a while, Tuscara will ask us to do something lame. I guess that’s okay as long as we keep flying!
While all that boring talk was happening, Doctor Saris and I hit the town. He’s more fun than he looks. I think it’s funny that he doesn’t think people notice him taking Red all the time, but with all these people shooting at us, chasing us in cars, and crazy alien murder bugs, I’m sure happy to have a doctor around!
And he’s pretty handy in a fight too, because we heard some yelling in a nearby alley and, being the heroic types that we are, went to investigate. It was a Vargyr (never seen one before) fighting with a couple beefed up looking dudes. They were yelling about some broach and being dicks, so Saris and I kicked their asses! They never stood a chance! Too bad we were saving a weird dog dude and not a super hot chick, but a win’s a win.
