Subject: Day 1, Walking in Serenity Views, 6:50 PM PT

Only a few minutes after leaving Morningstar's compound Wyatt became aware that they were the object of some unwanted attention. Picking the observers out in the crowd isn't difficult as they aren't trying very hard to be inconspicuous. There are Alliance men always somewhere within view—down the street, across the way, just a single officer acutely watching them. Not one to run from a fight, Wyatt finally stopped and stared back.

"Don't look like we're gonna receive the same type o' treatment in Serenity Views as we done received in Osiris," the captain let his gaze indicate the accompanying information. "Ya know somethin'? That noodle house does sound good."

That being said, Wyatt redirects them from their path back to Rocinante and starts navigating to the restaurant. Using the personal comm unit he has to communicate with the ship, Wyatt delivers the message that they're dining out tonight and anyone that wants to join them is welcome to.

As soon as he finishes his message another comes back: "Hey Captain, you there?"

"I am."

"This is Jade, I just wanted to let you know that I am not at the ship, I am very close to the junk yard. One of the local told me about how there been an issue of people going missing and I am checking into it, I should return back with the ship with more information."

Wyatt lifts the comm to his mouth to respond, but pauses and looks to Willow and Asher. "Did she jus' say she was lookin' into missin' people? Alone?"

(OOC: assuming something to the affirmative...)

"That's what I thought." Activating the comm, Captain Sung says, "Jade, listen here. We got company watchin' us with a very intentful eye that I don't imagine is keen on seein' if we're the type they want t' invite t' a local ball. I'm not keen on you runnin' off on yer own niether, so why don'tcha come on over to the noodle house and we'll talk 'bout what you were set on. Dohn la ma?"

Subject: I live to confuse people! Victory is nigh!

"What my dear captain means, " Willow interjected smoothly," is that we hope you've received word of our mission. Captain Havelock's family has received Alliance permission to put him to rest in Serenity Valley, among his men. We understand you've mapped some of the Valley and may be able to help us accomplish this safely. Have we understood correctly? "

Morningstar looked confused by Wyatt's opening but then clarity came to his face as Willow explained further. "Havelock!" He said aloud, "Oh yeah. I got a wave from a Federal Marshall about Havelock." he returned to his desk and began punching on the screen of the cortex box.

"Captain Havelock." The Shepherd said, "I read about him and a group of transport crew that found against a mercenary band. " Was that you people?"

Shrugged shoulders could be taken any which way and that's what Wyatt Sung settled for. Noncommittal and yet at the same time not denying the deed. For all intents and purposes, unless it put credits in their hands, fuel in the tank, and food on the table Captain Sung didn't care much if anyone had heard of them or what they went through.

"Mighty brave of you. Standing against so many for the lives of a group of people you never knew before you rescued them." He continued, "Were you well rewarded in the end?"

"We lost a good man," a warm flare had been set off in his stomach by the comment as though reward was what they'd done it for. "Truth of the matter was, we did what had t' be done in order t' survive. Heroin' usually get's ya killed. It doesn't keep yer ship in the sky an' yer crew fed."

"I would have thought that after saving so many rich and generous folks that you be living large and putting the fright trade behind you?"

Sung sent Willow a look that was as much pleading for her to cut the questioning off as asking whether a Shepard was supposed to be that keen on finances.

"Aha!" Virgil called out, "Yes I do have a letter here for a Colonel Sanders. Oh my!" Virgil face fell a bit, "he was with the 42nd Infantry. " He exchanged a look of dread with the Shepherd who walked over to look over his shoulder. Carson also grimaced. "Sorry to say that records are a bit sketchy and frankly we have more markers out there with no name than we have ones with. The good news is we know where the 42nd is but the bad news is they area is not cleared of ordinance."

Morningstar turned the screen around so everyone could see. There were marked areas on the map for units and some were in green, others in red. The 42nd was in the red zone but not too far from the green edge. "Now I can ask Jon to get some of his boys together, have them go out in the morning to clear and area to the 42nd and you can lay him to rest by the afternoon assuming there ain't no hitches. If there is, well it should be much longer than that. He has come a long way, I'd rather see him in the right place. Are you in a hurry?"

"Perhaps Virgil could get you a few complimentary rooms at the hotels in town? Or we have a five star Noodle House in town?" Shepherd Carson suggests quietly.

"Actually," Wyatt drawled not unkindly. "Stickin' 'round a bit might provide me an' mine with some time t' line up our next set o' fares. An' while I appreciate yer offer of hospitality, it ain't necessary. Thank you kindly all the same. You can drop a wave our way when it's safe t' take Havelock home. 'Til then, I don't plan on muckin' about much so you can find us back at our ship if'n ya need us."

"Thank you Jon. Good Evening to you," The Man in White says and offers his hand, "I'm Virgil Morningstar and this here is Shepherd Wiley Carson. How can we help you?"

With that, Connor nods politely and leaves the room.

Wyatt respectfully removes his hat and holds it in his left hand while shaking Morningstar's offer of greeting with his right."Shepard," he acknowledoes in kind.

"I appreciate you takin' this meetin' Mr. Morningstar. We was instructed t' see you 'fore delivering the Old Warhorse t' his final resting place in Serenity Valley. Told you'd have the know-how t' get us through the dangers tHat be."

Download OpenOffice. It's free and it should be able to open Works formatted files. If not, it is OpenSource and there's likely a plugin for it that will. After that, I'd suggest you use Google Drive. Just a suggestion.

Subject: Day 1, Serenity View’s Spaceport, 6:00 PM PT

Jaw set and prepared to take the events on Hera steadfast and headon, Wyatt Sung is somewhat surprised to take a deep breath of memories that stirred his innards and stalled his forward motion. Scent-stimulated paralysis is not what he is expecting when the cargo bay doors open. Squinting into the summer light he forces one wooden leg forward and then the next until he is in full motion, Willow and Asher at his side.

The Triple S Ranch bore the same sorts of smells for the most part--of course, the sawdust and fuel wasn't a part of it, but the grasses and the sweet seasonal air was. That weighed his legs down like his boots was filled with the casings of all those rounds that had ended so many lives on this ball of mud. The hairy man in a skimpy swimsuit sitting in the lawnchair outside of the impossibly square Beowulf Class just inside their line of passage somehow hurried that walking through mud feeling right away, and the conversation between the unfortunate who had to be the captain of such a vessel and the walking ball of fur is stowed in the file Captain Sung had for things not of immediate interest.

People are about their business in droves, and they seem none too concerned about the mockery their entire town is making of the Unification War and the sacrifices made. That bothers Sung. It churns up his gall and causes him to scowl in an unfriendly enough manner that no one so much as met his gaze on their jaunt through the streets of Serenity Views. Willow was another matter. They couldn't help but look at her, pretty and all gussied up as she is. Still, no trouble found them. A lady such as her accompanied by two roughnecks didn't garner much in the way of unwanted attention.

Wyatt admits to himself that he isn't surprised the Sheriff has been shut down. "Alliance won't have no local law when they're about," he mutters as he waves Asher away from the knothole. "We best be on t' Morningstar's place. The less we have t' spend time in this circus, the better."

During the War, Wyatt had made three blockade runs to deliver medical supplies to areas no one else would fly. One such trip resulted in him carting four and a half soldiers back to base for emergency medical treatment after their platoon had found a series of landmines. The odd thing was that three of the four and a half died before Wyatt had set down. The fourth died on the operating table while the fellow that had lost his legs and an arm lived. The sight of these young, cavalier hotheads playing with mines (even practice mines) set Wyatt's skin crawling.

"Jordan! Slow down!" A big man in camouflage pants and a tight white t-shirt calls out.

"I'm gonna beat your record sir!" the young man calls out but as he does the device in front of him makes a loud click and sprays green paint into his face.

"There are no records in landmine defusing Jordan. Now what just happened?"

"The wires were ..."

"No! What just happened?"

"I died."

"You died Jordan. That means you ain't going home. I have to go to your house and tell your mom you ain't coming home. I don't want to do that Jordan. She is a sweet woman and I love her dearly."

"Sorry sir."

"Shut up Jordan, you're dead," He turns to the others, "No one does speed records! You are paid by the hour not the landmine. Jordan, go wash up! Everyone else reset and start again."

The big man sees you coming over and walks over to greet you. He smiles and offers his hand, "Hello. I'm Connors. Can I help you?"

Wyatt takes his hand and responds to the smile with a dip of his head, "Howdy. Name's Wyatt Sung, Captain of Rocinante. This here is Willow, our ship doc, an' the kid is Asher. Public relations. We was told t' visit Mr. Morningstar on touchin' down t' get the lay o' the land ‘fore we set out t' make good our delivery. He isn't, by chance, available fer a bit?"

Subject: Uh-oh... Trouble and we haven't even got off the ship!

Foul moods were prone to blossom when Wyatt found himself faced with practically anything having to do with the Alliance, but when it was presented in such an unbelievably crass way his mood went straight to hell. By the time he encounters Willow, Captain Sung is itching for a fight, but not with her. There are three women in the Verse who can back Wyatt Sung off an angry binge. All of them could do it with a look--didn't need words. Eden had a way about her that softened his heart; melted the anger away. Ma had a motherly way about her looks that made Wyatt feel chastised for bad behavior. Willow made Wyatt see reason. So, even before a word escaped her mouth he knew that he was in for a change in mind; no matter how much he didn't want to. There's no arguing logic.

She took in Wyatt's outfit, then Asher's extra-ordinary amount of ordinace, and the belligerent defiance on both their faces. oh no, this will not do at all

"Are we going to some costume party I don't know about?" she may have startled them with her cold, sharp tone, but she didn't much care. This was about Havelock, not their wounded pride.

"If I recall, we are here to ask for help in finding safe passage through Serenity Valley in order to bury our friend. We may have clearance to bury him there, but it's on this Morningstar's indulgence that we'll get any maps through the buried ordinance there, and you too look like you are about to spit on the man's meal ticket. That's presuming we can even get that far through town before you pick a fight or two. "

"What's more important here? Thumbing your nose (or waving other digits) at the Alliance or doing Havelock right and respecting his last wish?"

"Now, I said nothin' 'bout stirring anything up Willow," Wyatt muttered, though he knew that she wouldn't buy the excuse. "Still... you're right. Best we assess the odds 'fore placing a bet--though it ain't nearly the fun."

Smacking Asher in the chest with the back of his right hand, Wyatt turned and made his way back towards his room saying, "C'mon Kid. Let's get t' lookin' a little more in line with the sorts tha' Miss Willow'd be seen with."

Returning to his bunk, Sung removed near everything Browncoat paraphernalia except what was normal in his wear and his red kerchief. Readjusting his mesh shirt so it rested more comfortably, he stopped and stared at his stone-faced expression for a moment in his dingy mirror.

Hard lines, deep set skyblue eyes, jet black goatee and mustaches all set beneath the low brim of his hat. In his heart, he still felt like he was a young man, but in his head and by outward appearance, he was worn like the leather of a often-used holster.

Taking in a deep breath he gave the picture of elephants by the ladder a quick tap before returning to the cargo bay.

Seeing Willow again, he spreads his hands and raises his eyebrows. "Do I pass inspection?" It isn't a snotty question, delivered as it is with a wry smile. He still feels the tension in him at the thought of having to deal with so much Purple, but he would be damned if he let his crew down.

We have a sheriff and an Alliance outpost? Hot diggity! Never tell me the odds.

Ok, so the plan will be the crew dispersed as outlined while leaving our passenger to "relax" and make our way to see Virgil.

Any objections?
