RE: Questionable Means

     "Uuuhm, for the most part yes. One or two places that I'll remember when I see them. Why? What's going on with the datapad?" Ishkan raised an eyebrow, looking down at the pad in Tawny's hand.

They made their way back down the streets, taking their time as to remember how to get back again if they needed to without the datapad. Ishkan mostly remembered the route, but did get confused once or twice. After stopping someone and asking them directions, they were on their way once again. It only took them five minutes longer to find their room than it did to find the store.
     "Not too bad." Ishkan said as they opened the door to their room and walked in. He set his bag down on the counter and took the items out, placing them in the fridge.
     "I'll cook something up for dinner if you want. Anything sound good?" he asked.

RE: Questionable Means

Tawny shrugged in response.

"You know, at this point I'd probably willingly eat my right hand, so whatever you make will be fine." She pointed to the couch. "I'm going to try and figure out what's wrong with the datapadd. Might fall asleep. If I do then just wake me up when food's ready."

With that, she walked over to the couch and sat down.

She managed to get the datapadd into her lap before she fell asleep.

RE: Questionable Means

Ishkan had gotten a couple of slabs of meat out to cook up some steaks and looked over to Tawny to ask her how she wanted hers cooked, but she was already asleep. Seeing her breathing easily while passed out on the couch made him realize just how tired he was as well. He shook his head quickly to wake himself up, and turned on the burner.

Twenty minutes later there was sizzling steak and cooked onions being pushed onto two plates. He took them both into the sitting area where Tawny was still asleep on the couch.
     "Tawny?" he asked, tapping her with his foot. "Dinner is ready, if you're interested. It's not much, but it's food." He sat down next to her, and started eating quickly to quell the raging war going on in his stomach.
     "How about you take the bed tonight? You seem pretty worn out. Don't worry about the datapad... just go to bed after dinner. I can clean up the kitchen and then just crash here." Ishkan said, looking over at Tawny.

RE: Questionable Means

Tawny held back a yawn as she bit into the steak, glancing at Ishkan as she chewed.

Part of her felt she should protest, he probably needed the bed more than her.

But on the other hand, she was so tired that the previous thought was as far as her coherency went before her brain shut down to all but chewing and not passing out into her food.

They finished eating and Ishkan grabbed the plates, hobbling over to the kitchen while Tawny tried to judge how far it would be to the bedroom.

Moving her hair out from in front of her cybernetic eye and attempting to scan for what felt like an eternity, she blinked in surprise once it registered in her mind.

"Hey, Ishkan." She absently called over her shoulder, the words sounding distant in her ears. "In the morning, could you make sure you remind me that my right eye has completely shut down? Thanks."

With that, she fell over onto the couch, curled up, and fell into unconsciousness.

RE: Questionable Means

    "Alright. I'll see if I can remember, though no promises. I think you'll probably figure out soon enough when you wake up though, right?" he said as he put the dishes in the sink and turned on the water. He thought he might have heard a mumbled reply, but when he looked at her again she was already asleep.
     "Good night. Sweet dreams." he smiled as he scrubbed the dishes.

After putting them away, he made his way to the bedroom and hit the bed like a ton of bricks. He didn't stir till the next morning.

He heard Tawny moving around outside the bedroom, and it took all he could to get out of bed. He rubbed his knees as he finally made it to a sitting position on the side of the bed.
     "Hey! You're eye's not working." he hollered out the open door to Tawny, whom was somewhere on the other side.

RE: Questionable Means

"Figured that out when I ran into a wall!" She absently called back before adding a quiet, "three times." In a tone too low for him to hear.

Sitting down on the couch, she absently raised her hand up to the eye, gently poking it. She let out an annoyed huff of breath after this failed to cause anything to happen.

"Greeeeeeaaaaaaaat," she said sarcastically. "I spent my lifes savings on this fragger, spent an eternity of pain to get it installed, and what does it do? Stops working before I've even had it for ten years."

She sighed and slumped back into the couch as Ishkan drowsily walked into the room. "Stupid Mechanic, not telling me their real name and giving me faulty implants." She grumbled.

RE: Questionable Means

Ishkan slumped down onto the couch as well. He just sat there staring at the opposite wall, still kind of out of it from just waking up. After a minute, he finally came back to reality and turned to Tawny.
     "Walked into a wall? How on earth did you manage that one?" he asked, smiling to himself at the thought of her doing it.

He then walked into the kitchen and opened up the cupboard, grabbing the cereal and poured himself a bowl. He then made his way back to the couch and plopped down again, and began to munch.

     "So, what are you going to do about your eye? Why would it just suddenly go out after ten years?" He asked, and took another mouthful of cereal.

"Eight years." Tawny corrected absently. "I got it when I was fifteen." She sighed, slumping forward so that her elbows rested on her knees. "As for what I'm going to do, I haven't got a clue. This thing cost me more than both of those clunkers I'm working on combined. And the likelihood of finding someone on this planet who will give me a new one for next to nothing, or at the very least fix this one a bit, is  less likely than us getting a new ship within the next two months."

She sighed before glancing at Ishkan, her stomach growled at the sight of his cereal. With an annoyed huff of breath, she stood up and walked to the kitchen.

"Seeing as I'm half blind, I'm going to need some help with work today, think you could stand a few hours with me looking for parts? Leo gave me some directions to his supplier and enough tape to cover what I estimated we'd need." She called over as she poured herself some cereal.

RE: Questionable Means

     "Sure. Not like I have anything else better to do at the moment." he said around a mouthful of cereal. "As long as you can remember how to get back to the shop without that datapad of yours." he smirked.

After they finished eating, they headed out to the supplier. Luckily Leo had written the directions down on a piece of paper, as the datepad was still on the fritz. As they were walking down the street, something occured to Ishkan.

     "Isn't it odd that your eye and the datapad seemed to have gone out at about the same time?" he asked Tawny. "I would say it could have been an EMP of sorts, but all the lights were working at the appartment. Maybe it's just coincidence..." he trailed off, taking a left where the directions said to go.

RE: Questionable Means

Tawny shook her head absently as she stayed focused on not getting separated from Ishkan. "No, must be a coincidence, my eye's been on the fritz ever since Tecom."

Ishkan stopped abruptly, causing Tawny to nearly run into him. "Wha-? Oh, we're here." They went inside the store, it smelled of oil and rust, two of Tawny's favorite smells.

Taking the list out of her pocket, she handed it to Ishkan and motioned to the alien who was without a doubt in charge of the shop.

"And besides," she added as they started walking over towards him. "If it were an EMP that knocked my eye out, it would have had an effect on the rest of my implants." To make a point, she wiggled the fingers of her left hand. "Don't you think?"
