    Kirk shakes his head. Apparently there was no convincing her otherwise. "I'm considering it. Nothing is a sure thing."

    "And I'm hoping it goes well." Dena replies, smiling as she leans back in Kirk's bed. "So what do you think your babies will be like?"

    Kirk rubs his eyes. "You'd think you'd know by now that I wouldn't want children." He knows Dena's just trying to get under his skin. Trouble is, it's working.

    Bianca smiles at Ordo. Oh, it's nothing, Boss. Just waiting for your command.

    Bianca then goes to pat Shanaya on the head. Oh, you're coming along, short-stuff. You need to learn, and what a better opportunity than working along-side a couple of veterans.

    In a different timeline, when Dipsnig is away from the base, a goblin messenger rides up to the base on a wolf, bearing a letter in a thick envelope.

    After a minute, the door will be answered by the resident creepy medical robot, CB-484. "Hello, and welcome to NO," he says. "Can we help you today?"

    CB will take the envelope and open it. He reads the job, taking note of the payment offered, and the expected cost.

    The list reads:

    Mercenaries needed to aid with an expedition deep into Underside, in search of a rare mineral. The expedition will require protection as well as aid in navigating the tunnels and locating the mineral. Payment will be in cash, depending on the dangers faces.

    CB then puts the note back in the envelope. "Can you fill out a form concerning the details of this job, or are you simply a messenger?" If he can, CB will provide the goblin with a proper job form to fill out.

    "'Fraid I'm just the messenger. Inquiries should be made at [Address], Underside Colony," the goblin replies.

    "Very well. I will forward this to our leader, who will make more inquiries if he so desires."

    If the goblin has nothing more to say, CB will close the door and go to put this on the job board, filing out the form as best as he can himself.

    Job: Aid with an expedition deep into Underside
    Hired by: Zortnak Razortooth (Morty)

    Shanaya closes her eyes and takes in a deep breath. "OkayfineI'mgoing," she says all in one breath.

    She nods, and then tries to figure out how this could be beneficial to her. Oh! Maybe this evil slave-keeping cult will have a shrine to the Dragon Queen somewhere! As soon as she thinks this, she becomes much more interested and energetic in going.

    "Arright. Like I said, they have confirmed temples in Riverside and Underside. I think they also have something somewhere in the fields, but I'm not sure. Find out whatever you can, however you can. Any information is valuable," Dipsnig says.

    Bianca turns to Ordo. So, Boss, how do you wish to proceed? There are two places to go. Maybe I could go to the one in Riverside, and you and the welp head toward Underside? ((Wherever that is. ))

    "That sounds fair enough. C'mon, pup. We've got sneaking to do," Ordo says, walking toward the armory. "If you want any weapons or equipment, grab them now."

    "And yet you keep trying to have them, maybe there really is a part of you deep inside that want to raise this big black family?" Dena suggests with a amused smile, perfectly aware that a similar statement was used to tease her sometime ago.

    Almost.

    She turns around and steps in front of Dipsnig, saluting stiffly with a soft thud of her heals. She waits patiently in this position for his reaction.

    Seeing Ordo go towards the Armory, the young girl waits. "I've already got everything I need." Besides, she's not allowed in the armory yet.

    No Longer Waiting

    Ordo returns with a hefty-looking backpack and a new set of clothes. Dressed all in black, nice and warm to boot, the psion starts toward the door.

    "Let's go, kid!" He hails. And I suppose I shall post in Underside.

    Bianca smiles in return, but only lowers her arm to her side, continuing to stand straight and look over Dipsnig's head. No sir. I wished to ask if there is a contact, or a specific sector of Riverside I should look for this evil sect? Sir.

    "Knock it off, Bianca," Dipsnig says irritably. "We're not in an army. And we do have a mole in the Riverside temple, but I'd rather you didn't blow her cover. The temple is in the northern district of the town."

    "Well, aren't you even curious what it would be like? You're a great deal older then me after all and you have spend most of your days just ***** around. Have the idea of being a family man never entered your head?" She mostly seems amused at this idea so she probably isn't taking it all too seriously.

    "I can honestly say that I hadn't considered it a possibility. It really doesn't seem like a me thing to do." Kirk doesn't mention that pursuing an actual relationship doesn't either, but that's still completely different.

    "It doesn't." Dena agrees, thinking on who'd make a bet on that. She imagined some pretty sweet odds. "So when can I met Tina again? I'm starting to miss her actually. Not as much as you though I imagine." She says with a sweet smile.

    A man knocks at the door with a gnarled, gloved hand. He walks with a crutch that used to be composed of sleek ebony wood. Now, there's a piece chipped off, the handle is slightly dented, and the crutch has odd brownish, rust-colored stains. He wears a long navy coat, now ripped up at the bottom, several bullet holes in the back of the long coat. He wears his wide-brimmed, ripped hat. He has a brown-grey messy beard, that matches his long grey hair. His left leg is wooden, and clunks as he walks. He wears ripped up gloves, and black trousers. He has some kind of leather armor underneath the coat. He taps and adjusts his boot. Hello? Are ye in there?
