Thalassa
(Middle Six, Planet #8 of System)

Thalassa is a moderately populated planet and one of the Middle Six. The Illuminati has partial visibility and leaves most of the control up to its trusted officials and representatives it has sent there. A majority of the planet's surface is water so the people living there have adapted and have built cities both underwater and floating on top of the water. There are a few areas of land, but not many. As such, most of the land is left uninhabited and untouched by the building up of cities. Though the planet is primarily water, it does experience seasons and when storms strike they tend to be tremendous. This causes fear for those residing in the floating cities as opposed to those located in the water below. Some floating cities have managed to acquire technology to protect them during such storms.

Time: Early evening, October 1.


According to legend, the Comet got it's name from one it's previous owner's last adventure as a space pilot. For reasons that changed with each telling of the story, his ship had been destroyed in space, far away from any help, but he had managed to escape in the tiny emergency boat, landed on the surface of a passing comet, and then managed to lift off just as it passed Thalassa, followed by a million-to-one emergency landing on the ocean planet.

The truth of the tale was debatable, but nonetheless the blazing holographic comet projected above the door of the bar was a familiar sight to many who had reason to use the spaceport of the Thallassan city of Equatoria.

Aya was back in her usual place by the bar, idly chatting with the bartender and keeping an eye on the guests, sometimes flashing one of them a quick smile, should their gaze linger upon them. She had actually been gone for a few weeks, having managed to save up money for a vacation. It had been good, just relaxing, visiting her family and even taking her niece on a short ocean safari up north.

But now she was back at work. She was dressed up in a tiny, form hugging dress. It was actually the most expensive piece of clothing she owned, being made out of the elastic skin of a Thallassan Sea Serpent. It was a good investment, though. The subtle pattern of the shiny skin made her stand out, and it lent her the feeling of some class and style. Besides, she had been told it did wonders for her butt, something that never hurt.

The place had changed little in the time she had been gone. Music was playing in the background, recorded, even if there was often a live performer later some evenings. Much of the city was actually bellow water levels. The bar, situated beneath the actual spaceport, was just at water level. One wall had a couple of thick windows, regularly covered by the waves, and the small dance floor was made of reinforced glass, beneath it a dark chasm, where pillars supporting the main structure disappeared into the depths. Sometimes fish, a maintenance sub or lizard seal would swim by beneath the feet of the guests-

The customers were a mix of transients and regulars. Not too many yet, but more kept arriving, alone or in small groups. Roughly, the clientèle could be divided into three groups. A few were just killing time with a drink, maybe waiting for a flight, most of them alone or in pairs.
Others, usually in groups, were starting up a night out, quaffing down their brews and laughing loudly. Often, these would be a ship crew just landed, ready to blow some of their earnings and unwind, often picking the Comet as their starting point. Aya kept an eye on these, as sometimes they would be interested in the kind of services she could provide.

The third group was those here on business. People looking for information, to make deals and earn money, not always legally. Those would be seated in the corners, where there was plenty of shadow, or near the loudspeakers, where the music would mask their voices. Either in pairs, quietly negotiating their deals and broking their services, or eagerly watching the door with every new arrival.

"Yeah.. sure.. It was great, we even got to see a few Leviathan Whales, birds roosting one their backs and all. Pam loved it.", she said in response to a question from the bartender, briefly locking eyes with a guest who had been watching her for a little while.

Vacation had been great, but she had to admit she had kind of missed the energy and quiet excitement of this place.

Both Seth and Sky had decided that they needed a bit of a break from flying and jumping from planet to planet collecting goods and delivering them to people who needed them. The two men made their way into what seemed to be a local bar to have a few drinks, discuss things, and possibly strike some trade deals. Most people knew of the two outlaws but no one knew exactly what they looked like, they were fast and damn near impossible to catch, when they moved they did it quickly and preplanned to make sure everything was done perfectly. Plus when the two broke the law they usually word masks that covered the bottom halves of their faces making it even more difficult to identify them.

When the two men walked in they made their way over to the bar and sat down figuring they would move into a more secluded area later on when they felt like discussing things. Plus sitting at the bar gave them a pretty decent view of everyone in the bar and everything that was going on.

Seth tipped his hat to the young woman who was behind the bar showing that he was friendly it was a gesture he had always used to get people's attention or to simply say hello. Sky nodded to a few of the other patrons as they looked over to him some looked pretty nasty while others looked like the type of people who just came in to enjoy themselves. He figured he would get a mix of different races and moods in there, it was a normal thing with bars there was never any set mood just a mix of different vibes and that's why he was even more careful because he never knew what to expect in these type of places.

"Hello Miss may I trouble you for a drink? Take your time of course, we're in no rush" ,Seth stated before turning his attention to Sky. "So after we're finished here where are we headed?" ,he asked.

"I don't know let's see what kind of information we can get here before we make any decisions" ,Sky replied.

The man wanted to figure out what places would be good to get supplies and trade at, he figured he could be casual with his conversations and act as if he were only looking for certain shops or other areas of significance while on the planet. He'd also take his time to explore as well and see if anyone needed Seth and his services. They were pretty much thieves for hire when they weren't snatching up stuff to deliver to the people on Charon and Acheron, the ones who truly needed it.

Aya beamed a smile in return for the tip of the hat. It was a nice, polite gesture, she thought. Lot of the people coming in tended to either ignore her, ogle her or sometimes even sneer at her. She did not particularly mind either, and sometimes invited the second, but a polite gesture would always win a point with her. Two more points for the 'Miss' and for patience when he ordered.


"Sure thing, gentlemen! Can I tempt you with a Comet Special? We got also got the Extra Special for the daring and the Tripple Special for the suicidal, and if you prefer something else, just ask."


She was already reaching for the glasses and getting ready to mix a couple of Specials, unless they would order otherwise. That was the most popular drink by far. It was reasonably good, reasonably strong, and quite cheap.

Besides, it looked like the two were more interested in discussing business amongst themselves.

She tried taking stock of the two. Both appeared to be pretty rugged individuals. Free traders of some sort, she would guess. Outlaws or bounty hunters were also possibilities, as quite a few of both would pass though here. The local authorities did not mind either very much, as long as they left behind some money and did not create too much fuss.

When the woman came over and asked what they would like Seth gave her a smile, "Two of the specials would be just fine Miss thank you very much" ,he said kindly in response to her. He was surprised that she had listed a few things that they had on the menu, most bars the two men had visited just expected you to know what they served or they only served one thing and it was usually something bitter and weak it was a nice change to be given options and some proper service.

The two men had money of course and if anyone were to ask where they got it their answer would simply be that it was well earned, no one needed to know they stole it. Besides the people they stole their money from had plenty of it and could spare some, hell most of the people they stole from probably didn't even notice that it was missing.

Both Seth and Sky had noticed some of the patrons ogling the young woman behind the bar and they figured she had got that a lot and although they had both found her quite attractive they were respectful. They didn't let their eyes wander over her body and when she took their order Seth kept his focus on her face it was a little thing called respect that the two men had. Even though they were grungy and criminals they still had decency and respect for people who deserved it.

Aya moved swiftly and elegantly on her dagger-like heels, producing two glasses of the Comet Special. The drink was kind of bitter at first taste, but with a full, round after-taste.

The Comet usually had a varied selection of beverages and spirits. The manger of the bar had lots of connections, and could usually get hold of decent products cheap, often smuggled goods, or smuggled goods that had been confiscated, then resold by a couple of custom officials who liked supplementing their pay checks.

Deciding she liked the two newcomers. They looked rough, sure, but they had a certain class. She added a bowl of snacks to the order, unasked and on the house, just because of that.
"Two specials, and if there are anything you need, anything at all, please let me know."

The two took a sip of their drinks then looked to see the bowl of snacks in front of them, not only were the drinks good but the woman serving them was proving more and more just how great the service in the place was. "Hey Miss do you have a name or should we keep calling you Miss?" ,Sky asked with a friendly smile. It was the first time he had spoken to the woman since they got there it wasn't because he was ignoring her at all it was simply because Seth had pretty much did most of the talking for the both of them. After Sky asked the woman for her name he reached into his pocket and pulled out a good amount of money and set it down on the counter then pushed it towards her, "Here's a tip for you, My name's Skylar but you can call me Sky and this guy right here is Seth, we'd like to thank you for your kindness and the fantastic service" ,Sky continued.

Seth sat and listened as Sky spoke to the woman and watched as Sky placed the money on the counter, he didn't mind that he gave her a decent tip the woman deserved it after all and they could get more money anytime they needed it. He gave s mile then took another sip from his drink then looked to the woman, "Thank you for the drinks" ,he stated simply before turning back to Sky. "So who do you think we should talk to in this place?" ,he asked quietly hoping no one heard him but Sky.

"I don't know yet I'm still looking around give me a little bit" ,Sky told him in response before sipping his drink again.

"Hey Chip, stand by on the Number Two turret diagnostic panel, will you?"

"Standing by."

With tools in hand, Jakkon crawled over piping, wiring, and ship superstructure as he moved around inside the very walls of the Dragon's Fang. It was a gift he had, knowing how to move around inside large machines. He'd already gotten a reputation from Skylar Davies and his crew for being a ghost, or a rat in the walls, what with how Jakkon was able to be in one place, vanish, then appear somewhere else in the ship entirely. In fact, Jakkon tried not to even show himself whenever possible. His bunk wasn't actually in the normal crew quarters, but a hidden and hard-to-reach (for those who didn't know their way around the jungle gym that was the ship like he did) alcove right above the ship's primary reactor itself. It would even be safe to say Jakkon probably knew the Fang better than Captain Davies did. Even so, Jakkon always did his best to stay out of everyone's way and quietly keep the machinery running, because the young kid inevitably fouled up almost anything else with his frequent lack of common sense. Jakkon sometimes wondered that if it weren't for his invaluable genius at mechanics, coming up with jury-rigged upgrades and fancy toys for Skylar and the ship, Skylar might have dumped his backwater butt on a midplanet joint.

Presently, Jakkon was crawling inside the actual casing of the second laser turret of the starship, which had been acting persnickety again. He wedged himself into a position in between the weapon's power arrays and the wall, and readied his tools to determine the problem. But first, he needed the weapon online to find the fault. "Chip, power up the number two turret, but keep the mount locked in place. I don't want to get crushed to paste in here."

"Roger that. Locking mount, powering up..." Replied the AI of the of the Dragon's Fang, Chip. Chip often helped Jakkon with his work by doing raw calculations and analysis.

A mere inch above his face, Jakkon heard a hum and felt a slight heat as the core of the weapon brought itself to life. Suddenly, the tiny space Jakkon was in was filled with sparks as something shorted out. "Ow! Cut the power! Cut the power!"

The sparking died then as the hum stopped. Jakkon smelled an acrid smoke, and with a sudden feeling of dread, looked around the array at what he very much hoped wasn't the problem...no such luck. There it was, a small electronics module, blackened at the contacts and now spewing 'magic smoke', signifying it was utterly destroyed. Jakkon groaned. Not again.

He turned his head and glared at what he knew was the culprit, a series of ring arrays around the focusing barrel that looked a bit out of place. "Damn power-greedy miltech. Just can't play nice with someone different from you, can you?" Still, he cast his cybernetic eye over the array and fed the data back to Chip, who confirmed Jakkon's suspisions. Resigning himself to what it meant, Jakkon yanked out the faulty electronics module and plugged in his dataslab. "Chip, open a relay to the number four turret, I need to patch a connection to compensate."

Once Jakkon was satisfied, he activated his wrist-communicator, and opened a link to the Captain. Jakkon knew the Captain was somewhere on the latest bar the Dragon's Fang had docked with, the Meteor or the Comet or something. The roughnecks sometimes tried to bring Jakkon along, but he didn't like crowds very much and so always conveniently found something that urgently needed fixing right then. "Jakkon to Captain. Sir, the number two turret that your gunner's been complaining about? I'm afraid I've got a little bad news."

"Sky, Seth, I am pleased to meet you both", looking at the men in turn as she said their names "My name is Aya. I don't know if our service is that fantastic, but I hope we can make you feel welcome. Oh, and thank you!"

The latter she added as she collected the tip, realizing it was quite generous. She had been a bit surprised as Sky spoke, as she had figured Seth was the one who did the talking. She was also surprised and pleased by the compliments, and her face suddenly had an expression just between happy and bashful.

Funny thing that. While (unknown to Aya) the two gentlemen might be classified as thieves, she earned much of her living by an equally old trade, one also considered disreputable by some. Basically, the paychecks she got from tending the bar where not that great by themselves. The real money came from big spenders eager to have some female company and perhaps more.. physical comforts.

Supposedly, a girl in her trade should be pretty emotionally stunted. But somehow, a few earnest compliments and thanks were all it took to make her feel good.

"Let us know if you need anything more, okay?"

The added confidence made her feel taller, and gave her steps an added boost of energy as she went to deposit the pay and serve a bottle of beer to another customer.

From what little she had gleaned from their conversation, she got the feeling they were looking for something, perhaps some business or something, rather than mere pleasure. If she could pick up something useful, she would surely tip them off.

"Well Aya it's nice to meet you too and although you may not think your service is that fantastic this place is truly the best bar we've ever been in" ,Seth told her. It was true usually the two just went into the first bar they seen when they landed their ship and fortunately for them this time when they landed they actually found a pretty decent bar.

When Sky heard Jakkon's voice come through on his wrist communicator he looked down at it then activated it so that he could respond, "Captain to Jakkon, what is the issue?" ,Sky asked curiously. The man really didn't know much about mechanics and he was glad he had Jakkon on his crew to fix things up when they got broken or needed to be upgraded.

Seth looked to the woman as Sky spoke to Jakkon on his communicator, "Well the only thing we should need is for the drinks to keep coming also if you could a shot of bourbon would be nice" ,Seth stated giving the woman a smile. He then heard that something was broken on the ship, "Make that two we may be staying for a while" ,he stated with a small laugh. He had no idea what was broken or how long it would take to fix Seth just assumed that they would be staying a little longer then they had expected, which was alright with him it meant they had more time to get any info they could about the planet and where the most supplies could be found.

Jinks was almost to the Comet as he swam in the water it reminded him of his home on Acheron the calmness of the waves the silence of the evening he dove under the water and swam right underneith the establishment forgetting completly about the glass floors in sections of the place. he surfaced on the other side and climbed up from the water. He found a concealed place and pulled out his lightsaber and flicked it on he moved the humming blade just inches away from himself the heat it produced was being used to dry his outfit. Once he was most of the way dry Jinks turned off the saber and put it away then he made his way inside and found a nice dark corner to sit in
He slumped deep into the corners shadow.

Jakkon started worming his way out of the turret housing as he reported to the Captain over the wristcomm. On the other end, Skylar could hear the occasional metallic clank and bang as Jakkon moved. "You know that magnetic confinement array we salvaged from a scrapped Illuminati fighter that you had me install in the #2 turret to give it some more punch? Well, it's been overdrawing power and fried the independant targeting computer, again. That's the third time since I installed the thing last month. I'm sorry to say, but for once, this is just something I can't jury-rig a compatibility bridge for. Military hardware can sometimes be very fussy about its requirements, and this is one of those times."

Jakkon finally exited the turret housing near the gunnery station, where he met up with Chip and started programming the last touches on the patch he'd done. "For now, I've got the second turret slaved to the targeting of the fourth. That will keep it operational for now, but the aim will be a bit off. I don't want to yank any more spare components from the main computer if they're gonna keep getting eaten. If I'm gonna fix this for good, I'm going to need some genuine, standardized military-grade starship electronic components. It's the only stuff robust enough to handle the load." Jakkon didn't need to add the obvious problem with that; military technology was almost universally black-market in the hands of 'private' citizens.

"On the plus side," Jakkon continued, "I'm almost done with that powered battle-armor I've been building from scratch for Seth. Another day or two to work out the kinks, and it should be combat-ready. Boarding action should get a lot easier. Just nothing else I can do for the turret for now." He finished with his report. Just another day, hard at work for him. Always at work, never seemed to do anything for fun. At least, not that the crew had ever seen.

Skylar could definitely hear the background noises through his wristcomm and knew Jakkon was hard at work like usual, it wasn't a bad thing that the guy wanted to work all the time but Sky always wondered if he ever had any fun. He didn't want the guy to overwork himself and Sky wasn't the type that would demand him to constantly work in fact he wanted Jakkon to get out and have fun. He listened as Jakkon told him what was wrong, when the man was finished speaking Sky began to respond, "Well you do what you think is best and make me a list of the things that we need to make it work and Seth and I will get them for you, you know I need this tech stuff spelled out for me I don't know shit about it that's what we got you for" ,Sky said jokingly with a laugh. He appreciated the man's work and didn't know where his ship would be right now if it wasn't for Jakkon. "Is there anything you want us to bring you back while we're out?" ,he asked.

A smile came across Seth's face when he heard about the battle armor he was excited to get to use it and had been waiting for it's completion for a while, he knew it would be a success, pretty much everything Jakkon built was damn near perfect. "Well that's some good news thanks for the update" ,Seth stated. He made sure to get as close to Sky's communicator as he could so that Jakkon could hear him. Seth then got back to his drink and began to sip it while sitting there as Sky continued his conversation with Jakkon. "Hey Sky instead of asking him if there's anything he wants us to bring him why don't you have him just come in here for a little while" ,Seth finally said after a few moments.

"You know what you're right the guy needs to get out and have some fucking fun" ,Sky stated in response. He then brought the communicator up to his mouth again, "Hey Jakkon why don't you come to the bar and have a few drinks with me and Seth? It won't hurt you to leave the ship for a little while the thing has a security system, bring Chip too if you want" ,Sky stated hoping the guy would for once listen and actually come into the bar.

"Roger that sir, I'll have a list of the needed parts sent to your wristcomm shortly." He heard Skylar's laughter at his joke about himself, which helped put Jakkon to ease a bit. "Bring me anything? Uh...well, I'm usually good with the rations we've got, but if they've got some fresh fruit, that'd be nice to have." Jakkon answered as he walked through the corridors of the ship. What Sky said next, however, gave Jakkon pause.

"Uh...really, sir? I mean, are you sure? The turret's a wash for now, but, I, uh, I think Seth's battle-armor could do with a few more diagnostic tests while we're docked...I'm sure there's a bug in the actuator controls I haven't found yet..." There Jakkon went again, making excuses like he always did. Of course, it was obvious how flimsy the excuse was this time. Skylar also knew from past experience that because Jakkon considers that he owes his life to him, Jakkon virtually never refuses an actual order when things go down. Poor kid was just jittery, all he needed was a firm push to get going.

Both Seth and Sky looked at each other and rolled their eyes at the same time they knew that Jakkon was just making excuses because he didn't want to leave the ship. "Eh don't worry about it right now we've got a long trip ahead of us once we're finished here so you should come in and relax a bit before we head off the planet and I'll even get you some fresh fruit if you come in for a while, if they don't have it here I'm sure me and Seth can find a place that does" ,Sky said in response to Jakkon. He wanted the kid to come and have at least one drink with them and just take a little break from all the work he did, Jakkon deserved it.

Jakkon sighed slightly as Skylar continued his case that Jakkon should take some time off. Well...he didn't really have anything to lose, he supposed. He was right, the ship did have a security system, and it had been awhile since Jakkon had stepped off the ship. He'd have plenty of time to work on things when they were in transit. And there was the getting some good food...Jakkon finally decided. "Alright. Aye-aye, sir. I'll be there in a few minutes." Jakkon closed out the wristcomm channel, and looked at Chip. "Stay here for now, keep the ship locked up and ready for us. Standard procedure." The robot gave an affirmative and scurried off. Jakkon headed for the airlock.

***

True to his word, a couple minutes later Skylar and Seth could see Jakkon wandering through the Comet bar. The boy was looking all around with the cylindrical cybernetic eye in his right eyesocket, scoping out the place. He spotted the two pirates, and made his way towards them. "Hey, guys. Colorful place." He said as he took a seat. "Oh yeah, and here's that list." Jakkon said as he pressed a few buttons on his wristcomm, and the information was transmitted to Skylar's. It just listed some common base military electronics, nothing exceptionally hard to find, but still technically illegal to have. Of course, compared to the other illegal tech on the Dragon's Fang, the electronics were hardly a big deal at all, and any black market dealer worth their salt should have some.

A smirk came across Sky's face when Jakkon finally agreed to join them in the bar it was about time the kid had some fun. Sure enough Jakkon walked into the bar a little while after he had said he was coming in, when he got up to Seth and Sky the two men looked at him. "Well it's about time you get out and have some fun" ,Sky stated before giving Jakkon a pat on the back. When Jakkon then gave Sky the list he looked it over and nodded before showing the list to Seth, "Think we can get all that?" ,he asked Seth.

Seth nodded, "Yeah I'm pretty sure we can either from scavenging broken down ships or from the black market we'll definitely be able to get everything on the list pretty easily" ,Seth said in response.

"Good" ,Sky replied. "So let's get you a drink and then we can discuss where the hell we're going once we're done here" ,Skylar stated giving Jakkon a smile.

"Bourbon? Sure, coming right up!"

Apparently, Seth and Sky were staying a while. She did not mind that at all.

Reaching out for the bottle on the rack behind the bar, she discovered it was empty. "Uh, Jack? We got any bourbon left?", she asked the other bartender. He looked apologetically at her, having just poured the last for another customer.
"We got more out back. I'll fetch it, if you would be kind enough to check up in that loudspeaker", he offered.

The sound-system on the Comet was a little bit on the rusty side, and some of the connections had a habit of being a bit cranky. Usually, a good smack with a flat hand would fix it.

She made her way towards the loudspeaker. She walked with a practised sway in her hips. The tiny, almost metallic scales on her dress caught the light as she moved, making the natural patters of the garment light up a little, almost dancing along her body as she moved.

Reaching the loudspeaker, she gave it a couple of slaps. The offending piece of hardware kicked in again, adding a satisfying boost to the bass.

As she made her way back to the bar, she happened to glance down as she crossed the dance floor, just in time to see a shape glide swiftly past her, right underneath where her high-heeled boots met the armoured plastiglass. She almost jumped from surprise, stifling a yelp. She looked around her, embarrassed.
What was that? She muttered to herself. It was not a lizard seal, she was sure of. A large fish maybe?

Back at the bar, Jack had indeed fetched the bourbon. She poured two glasses for her guest, serving them with a smile.

Her eyes caught sight of a new guest, recently arrived. Sitting in one of the darker corners, it appeared to be some sort of non-human. Her interest was peaked.

She glanced at the other bartender, who nodded. Aya made her way towards the newly arrived alien. Along the way she passed another newcomer. He was human, but sporting an obvious cybernetic modification.
She gave him a quick smile and a nod, noting that he was heading for Sky and Seth.

She arrived at the table where the alien had seated himself. She was not really familiar with his species. "Welcome to the Comet! I am Aya. What can I do for you, sir?", she said.

When Jakkon had been heading for the table, he had heard the pops in the bar's speaker system and mentally noted it. He had also passed one of the bar girls, who had given him a smile and a nod as she passed. Jakkon had nervously tried to smile in return and nod back, but she was already gone. Once at the table, the fidgety young Jakkon looked considerably out-of-place next to the two confindent, rugged men. Hard for any passerby to believe they actually worked together.

Jakkon heard Skylar mention getting him a drink. He was about to say that Skylar knew Jakkon didn't drink because it made it harder for him to work, but as he opened his mouth to say it, his mind jumped ahead and realized Skylar would probably point out that he just got off work. He stopped, sighed, and said something else instead. "A drink, huh? Well...you know I don't know anything about alcohol. Whatever you think is best, sir." Jakkon said. He then looked around for a moment, listening to the ambient music of the bar. "...By the way, did you guys hear that a minute ago? Sounded like their stereo system's a little off-kilter." Jakkon's face brightened considerably. "I wonder if I could fix it."

When Jakkon mentioned the speaker system being out and wondering if he could fix it both Sky and Seth sighed then shook their heads, "If you want to go see if you can fix their system go ahead Seth and I are gonna discuss our next move then when we figure out where we're going we're outta here" ,Sky stated in response. He knew Jakkon wasn't much of a drinker and knew that he was trying to get out of it by going to fix the speakers but neither Sky nor Seth were going to push the man to do something he really didn't want to do, at least he had left the ship for a little while.

"So Sky where should we go after here, wanna head to Charon and deliver the goods or did you have somewhere else in mind?" ,Seth asked.

"No I didn't really have anything else in mind just wanted to see if there were any other goods we could possibly get our hands on while out here" ,Sky said in response. Truth be told they were running a bit late with their deliveries and really should be heading out, not that they really had too much of a schedule it was just that certain people got used to them showing up at a certain time and they sort of gotten used to it.

"Well how about we finish these drinks and let Jakkon fix up the stereo system if he wants then we can head out" ,Seth suggested before taking a sip from his glass.

Sky simply nodded his head to show that he had no problem with the suggestion then looked to Jakkon, "Well go on and ask if they want you to fix up their system if they do we'll wait for ya" ,Sky told him.

"I am afraid we have no proper kitchen here, mister Jinks, but we serve some snacks. We got finger guppies, though. It is a popular snack around here, basically dry fish. Kinda crunchy. I hope that is okay. I can recommend you a couple of restaurants, if that is more your thing."

Thalassa being an oceanic planet, the local cuisine was dominated by seafood. Dried fish and shrimps were a common type of food in bars and pubs.

"As for drinks, the Comet Special is the most popular. We also got the Extra Special and the Tripple Special, and lots of other stuff."

Aya was a little curious about the guest. The spaceport being reasonably busy, aliens dropping by was not unusual, but Aya did not think she had met one of Jinks' type before. She did think the big black eyes were kind of cool. They were huge, black, and she could almost see her own reflection in them. Almost scary, but that did not make them any less cool.

She was considering if it would be rude to ask where he was from, but her thoughts were interrupted. A sour note entered the music, a line of static noise fouling up the jazzy beats.
"Again?!", she muttered, annoyed. "That sound system is so ready for a replacement."

She glanced about, trying to spot the offending speaker.

"That'ss Fine i'll have sssome finger guppiess sssoundsss like it would go well with a drink. as for a drink hmm" he thought for a moment " I'll have to try one of each letsss sstart with the regular sssppecial sshall we." He tried to control the Hiss in his speach but it was just natural for him. Some people were a bit bothered by it and his snake like tongue didn't help make people feel anymore at ease around him so he tried to look a little down when he talked so it wasn't as obvious.

When the sound system started to act up he noticed her get a little bothered by it. "No russshhh with my drink i feel like sssitting back and relaxxssing a bit anyway ssoo if you need to fixxx that firsst go ahead"

"No problem, I'll see to your order right away!". The alien seemed to look down, away from her, hiding his mouth. She hoped she had not offended him somehow.

Aya made her way back to the bar, picking up a couple of minor orders along the way. The wonky loudspeaker kicked in again on it's own again, saving her from having to whack it again, but probably not for long. Jack rally need to have the system overhauled, or preferably, get a new one installed. The place had accumulated a lot of jury rigged technical solutions over the years. Jack had been talking of brushing the whole place up a little, but so far, time and money had not yet allowed it.

Quickly getting the stuff she required, Aya made her way back to Jinks, dropping off a couple of orders on the way. She took some pride in the fact that she made balancing several drinks and snacks on a tray, neatly dodging a drunk patron before he unwittingly slammed into her without spilling a drop, and remembering all the order look easy.

"One special, and a bowl of snacks!"
, she said, doing a little dip to deposit the order in front of the reptile like alien. "If there is anything else you need at all, please let us now, OK?"

It appeared that the customer wanted to be in peace, so unless he wanted anything else, she would return to the bar. In not too long, her shift behind the bar would be over anyway.

Jinks had turned and looked away while the waitress had left to get his order . Taking small looks around the place every so often but mostly keeping himself in the darkness of the corner to himself. he seen her as she was on her way back and he was impressed with how well she handled all the things on her tray without dropping anything especially with the drunk who gave her a bump just before she returned to his table. When she placed the items down on the table he looked up and gave her a quick smile "Thanksss thats about it for the moment till i finissh thisss drink that is. " he said as he took a few of the snacks into his hand and nibbled on them a little before taking a nice long sip from his drink .
