On a Mission [T.I.D. Ep XV]
It felt like Vilevale was on a knife edge. There was tension in the air. Tension so thick that you could cut it with, uh, a knife edge...
Snake was causing further unrest. I had to keep my deal with him a secret, as I did not want to lose face by admitting to hiring him as bodyguard. So I was effectively paying him to keep his mouth shut, which he plainly wasn't.
Fang was still lost in his future plans.
And in my frustration and anxiety, I began to avoid meeting with him. This put a strain our relationship.
All the while, the balloons kept drifting on over...
Causing some strange effects.
I wandered aimlessly. I was growing evermore worried and confused. But finally, I was brought to my senses by Alfonso.
Tangy put it even more bluntly.
She was right! I had to confront my enemies. I needed answers. Sputnik was the place to go.
I took Curt with me for security, just in case some old Bear Mafia connections were needed.
I was perhaps overly keen to find answers, but Curt kept me level headed.
Not that searching needed to be done. There was immediately something strange.
My instincts made me think of crazy experiments and that sort of science fiction stuff. Boone was passing by, and offered a pathetic reason that only served to confirm my suspicions.
Meanwhile, Curt had found some interesting things about Nook. Perhaps there is more to Nooks past hidden here in Sputnik...
And it seemed that he had been targeted, drugged, while his shop was pilfered.
Somebody had to be behind all this. It wasn't hard to find out who. My insticts were right.
Whoever it was, was hiding away, building all sorts of contraptions from stolen goods, and terrorising me from afar.
Apollo! Now the crater paper message made even more sense...
I considered contacting him directly, to let him know the game was up. But Curt discouraged me...
He was right. There were others involved. Perhaps many more. I couldn't forget Nana, who was enjoying herself a little too much.
I made my way back toward the gate. Boone blocked the way. The only thing that seemed to stop Boone from pummeling me was my relationship with G...
Alas. G. He was notable by his absence this night.
I took my leave, armed now with knowledge instead of suspicion. But there were certainly further questions to be asked, and action to be taken in the near future.
