RE: Questionable Means

     "I'd probably have done the same thing." he reassured her, but that didn't mean much, as he did have affiliations as a pirate.
     "So, apparently he figured out that they were worth something. Either that, or he just wants his door stop back something awful." Ishkan continued, noticing the gum on his finger, and trying to scrape it off. "What are you going to do about it? Do you still have the said items?" he finished.

The train came to it's next stop and couple of passengers got on, which kept Tawny from saying anything. They were only a few seats away and would have heard anything she said.

Ishkan looked at them suspiciously. After Tawny's story of a death threat, he wasn't too keen to put his trust into anyone at the moment, especially a complete stranger. They seemed to be in their own world, not talking to anyone, and in fact trying to catch some shut-eye on however long of a trip they were on. Presumably a long trip, if they weren't worried about missing their stop. Ishkan conceided that he wouldn't be hearing any more of Tawny's story for the rest of the night.

He moved over to the seats directly across from Tawny and leaned against a divider for support, but was far from being able to sleep. Every little noise kept his senses crawling. This would be a long night.

RE: Questionable Means

Tawny yawned into her hand, she was tired, but there was very little chance that she was going to get any sleep for a long while.

She pulled the datapadd out of her bag, flipping it on.

"Datapadd's working," she said absently. "And it's synced up with the train." The train went on for a long while. "I'm thinking we should get off at this beach that's towards the end." She glanced at the people somewhat to her right, making sure they weren't paying attention to them. "Looks like it could be fun."

She blinked and held a hand in front of her face. "Of course." She murmured absently, closing her left eye.

RE: Questionable Means

Ishkan liked the thought of the beach. The idea of the salt water made him smile and his skin tingle with anticipation. Though, he suspected that it wouldn't be a holiday. They would be working hard to get off the planet as quickly as possible. Maybe even swindling some people out of their tape.

     "It's working again?" Ishkan asked, seeing Tawny move her hand in front of her eye. He thought he saw her nod a little in reply. The datapad in her lap obviously revealed that something had changed. Ishkan assumed it had to do with the little silver ball that was laying back on the floor in their appartment.

A couple hours later, Ishkan could smell the salt of the ocean as the doors on the train opened in front of them. It was still dark, but the sun would be rising soon. They stepped off the train and made their way to the surface.

"Is it working again?" Tawny absently nodded, hoping the silent 'I'll explain later' was conveyed to her companion.

Hours later, they found themselves walking through a beach-Side town, it had a noticeable lack of the amount of technology that had been in the previous city, but Tawny suspected that it was a purposeful move on the part of the people living there.

They worked their way through the streets, Tawny holding tightly to Ishkan's arm so as not to lose him in the crowds, until they came to a motel.

"We can rent a room here for the next few days," Tawny murmured quietly, pulling Ishkan inside. "And then we can talk about what we're going to do."

RE: Questionable Means

     "Sounds good." Ishkan said, pausing to hold the door to the motel office open for an older woman who was coming out. He didn't exatly like Tawny leading him around by his arm, but he knew the necessity of it. That didn't stop him from trying to pull away, or pausing like he was now.

     "Alright, here's some money for my part of the room." he said, grabbing a few tape out of his wallet and passing it to Tawny. "I'll wait by the door and keep an eye on things in the street while you go get us a room."

He couldn't tell if she was annoyed at him doing that or not. He was still not all that good at reading her emotions, but he didn't really care.

He pulled back the curtain on the window next to the door and peered out. The older woman who had been leaving was just getting into her car with her husband and pulling out of the parking lot.

The street seemed fairly quiet, given all the people walking around. Females of all types were walking around in exotic outfits, couples walking by with ice cream, guys on skateboards. Ishkan almost wished he could spend more time than what he knew he was going to.

A female Zap'ana caught his attention at one point, and he almost forgot that he was supposed to be keeping an eye out for trouble. Luckily for him, nothing happened.

RE: Questionable Means

Fortunately, renting a room was easy, five minutes later Tawny had two sets of keys and was walking over to Ishkan.

She handed him one, nudging him toward the stairs. "We've got room 22 rented for the next three nights, I can extend it if needed but I wouldn't count on that."

Entering their room, Tawny looked around, to the motels credit, it was fairly clean, and the lights were working just fine.

"Oh hey, two beds, that's a first," she said dryly, walking over and setting her things on a bed.

Ishkan closed the door and walked over to the other bed, sitting down.

"Okay," Tawny said, sitting cross-legged on her bed. "What are we going to do?"

RE: Questionable Means

     "What are we going to do? That's a very good question." Ishkan replied, laying back on the bed, staring at the ceiling. "Well, we could either come up with a con, pickpocket, or just outright rob people." he smiled, looking over at Tawny.
     "Personally, I would say a con would get us the most money at any one time, but it would take some time to set it up. Probably time that we don't have. Robbing people will attract unwanted attention. So pretty much that leaves us with the ol' pickpocket routine." he continued, "It'll be much easier with both of us, of course."

He got up off the bed and went over to where he had dropped his bag by the door and pulled out some food. Splitting open the wrapper, he took a big bite out of some type of bar.

     "Too bad we had to leave all the perishables behind." he grimmaced, going over to the sink and filling a little cup with some water.

RE: Questionable Means

Tawny yawned in response, her eyelids heavy.

Ishkan was talking, but the words were little more than a dull roar in the distance.

Somewhere in the back of her mind, she wondered why she'd been getting so tired lately. But the thought was quickly pushed aside as the darkness of sleep slowly pulled her in.

Ishkan snapping his fingers in her ear put an end to that little coma.

RE: Questionable Means

     "I know it's been a rough couple days, but we need to focus here. If they are really after us to kill us, we need to get the ball rolling. Sleeping can come when we're safetly in space." Ishkan said, sprinkling some water in Tawny's face to wake her up further.
     "Alright, so which one do you think?" he asked her, unsure of whether she had heard him talking about their options, so he repeated himself. "Con, pickpocket, or theft?"

Looking at the clock, it was nearly ten in the morning. After the all night train ride, he didn't blame Tawny for being tired. He was starting to feel a bit drowsy himself, but he pressed on. Determined to get off the planet before he was burried under it.

RE: Questionable Means

Tawny slapped herself on the cheek with her left hand - "Ow" - and looked at Ishkan. She took a deep breath.

"Okay, considering that we're short on time, and have no way of setting up a good enough con so that we could get enough tape to get off-world before they realize what we're up to, I would have to say pick-pocketing, but if worse comes to worse they don't exactly have the best security in this motel, so theft will be plan B."

She stood up and stretched, her spine popping. "We'll have to work quickly, we have no idea if they saw us leave the city or not, so no gurantee as to how much time we have. But so long as we stick to well populated areas we should be relatively safe."

She emptied her backpack onto the bed and pulled the datapadd out of the pile.

Slinging her backpack over a shoulder and tucking the pad under her arm, she nodded to Ishkan.

"Let's go."
