Pearl and Quasit #69


Quasit's nostrils flared, belying constant predilection to desipience, certain tensions rippling beneath his eyelids. Splaying his fingers, ticking off as speaking points.

"There's some fundamental truths. First, apropos negotiated price. Was it low because our benefactor didn't know what the cargo entailed? Or low as to not raise our suspicions? Second, just how will a new price be negotiated? Third, will we raise BQSBot security as cargo may be a flight risk? Fourth, some decision between us regarding price prior to said negotiation. Lastly, are we willing treat Iyauliana and her Mariri as cargo considering their sentience and cannei perspicaciousness?"
