Date: Dec 28, 37 YE Teisenjou Spaceport: Fickle Fortune Bar Raiarl Gosto of Ruoka Yoibei stepped into the bar and performed the Nutarka. There were two reasons to do so, one to see who all was in the establishment and to give his eyes a moment to adjust to the dim light after being out in the bright sunshine. Raiarl shrugged his cloak off his shoulders to free his arms. Then the black furred Qaktoro walked towards the table with his ally. His narrow green eyes with yellow flakes remained fixed on the Qaktoro he was meeting but his ears twitched to keep up on what was being said. He slid into the padded banquette, the other Qaktoro picked up a shot glass and filled it from a bottle on the table. "Here, its not Voltam Tyo'te, but it is passable." Raiarl looked at Silso thanked him and accepted the proffered beverage. Taking the glass in his hand he gave it a sniff. The smell was not unpleasant and he tossed it down. The liquid sent a warm sensation down his throat. The flavor was a bit mild, but the alcohol in it was potent. "Glad to see these fur-less ones have some worth." he said putting the empty glass down with a thump and took the bottle and refilled it. "How go the preparations? The Bright Star of Hope is due to arrive tomorrow. We have seen her itinerary and think that her event on the last night of the Yamatai year celebration would be fitting." Raiarl said. Silso downed the contents of his shot glass. "Well, the messengers are being prepared. They are undergoing the countermeasure treatment. They will be ready the day before. That should give them plenty of time to check out the location." "As agreed their families will be compensated for their sacrifice. We will all remember what they did, even if we can never speak there names in relation to it." Raiarl replied; knowing that the messengers would not be long for this life. But would be with Siamaka within six days, in one way or another. "These two would have been glad to perform the task even if compensation was not being offered." They have no love for her Jyaonjodau." Silso said leaning closer to his partner. "What about transportation? What arrangements have you made? We dare not use a ground glider. Something that will blend into the city would be best." Silso smiled but did not bare his teeth. "We have a Nepleslian female whom we have hired to convey the messengers. He is a member of this planets 'hidden speakers'. He cares not what purpose we are up to; just so long as our money is good. She insisted to be paid in local currency. Fortunately it is easily acquired at financial establishments." He held up two sizable bundles of Kikyou Satsu. "10,000 KS for her to pick them up at the agreed location, and deliver them near the Kyoto Tower. She has orders to wait and retrieve the messengers if at all possible."
