Pearl and Quasit #70


Emotion roiled beneath Pearl's exterior like antimatter liquid shadow. "We're a cargo vessel. It's what we do. It's what you signed up for. We don't ask questions. We get paid handsomely. If you're so naive as to think previous cargo was all sunshine and innocuous bagatelle, you need to bring yourself contrariwise. You, who talk of scruples. Your lascivious skullduggery landed you life at KG6 before me."

Pearl paused, elixating. Then, regaining a modicum of composure, "Let me know when your head's on straight."

About to storm out, she paused, ordered the BQSBots to raise security levels. Then stormed out.
