How do I say this?

Is this even the same person? She looks taller, and more well-endowed, and her snout is too long. Maybe the tip they got was wrong and this is someone who just looks kindof like her?
Say hello. Is she Pond? Regardless, warn her that some people from your ship are probably going to come by to assault her... though she looks like she'd be able to take care of herself to be honest.

Either you old crew where idiots or this person has a connection with Pond. Regardless we need to swear our aligence keep her safe.
>>
No. 954611 ID: b1b4f3

Oh, I thought "on the way back" meant something else which on hindsight was pretty convoluted. So yeah, they're gonna ambush Pond outside the hotel or something. Which means we should probably get this lady to either help in the ensuing fight, or contact Pond to warn her.

Not a solution to any problem I've ever had in my life!

"WAIT there is a fight!" The door stops. "S- I'm from the harbor and Pond's in trouble cause they wanna exact revenge on her!"

"Y-yes."

"I mean no."

I kind got distracted by everything and forgot that my crewmates said Pond was out and that they'd get her on the way back, so Pond probably isn't here!

You can still ask her where Pond is and tell her they think this hotel room is hers. Also maybe that you didn't think she looked like Pond, you just expected her to be here.

Well, this person probably knows where they're at! Might even be able to call them so they don't get pegged!

You'll just have to convince her that you're terrified of her, and not being aggressive.

... sit down and cover your head with your claws while pleading pathetically that she listen to what you have to say?

"Pond pretended to be a crew member and talked to me, and it kind of freaked me out a little, so I asked my captain, and Pond wasn't a crew member, and now the crew's all angry she's been butting into their business, and I'm actually not that happy to have her become their target even if she lied to me, so I'm trying to get in contact with her and tell her they're trying to get the drop on her on her way back to this room and maybe, uh, just maybe does she know someone who needs an engineer for hire?"

Anisha got the hotel and room number from the crew. They were planning to go and attack whoever they found there. They don't need to "follow" Anisha there to find us there. Being in the same hotel is suspicious enough, much less that we left a letter of resignation and bee-lined here.

They might not even know about the letter yet but it doesn't matter. Pond is only known about by the ship through Anisha reporting her. To then leave the ship and look like you are meeting up with her again is suspicious. Suspicion is really all this crew needs to decide they need to deal with you one way or another. They did the same when Anisha reported Pond originally.

Wall groans and then she keeps on groaning louder and louder until finally it stops.

>"Gods, Pond, just offer her to stay at our ship while you're at it why don't you?"

....

>"Wait you're thinking about it now aren't you?"
>"Yeah because that's a great idea, I don't know why I didn't think about it already!" says Pond.
>"We're not a vagrant shelter!"
>"She's not a vagrant, she's an engineer!"
>"We're not an engineer shelter either!"
"Um, you mean a mechanic? Because I'm more of a ship mechanic, uh, if that's... "

Wall turns to me.

>"Aw shit a mechanic? We do need one of those."

How convenient! The springtime of your life's begun. Now you just need to worry about immense sexual exhaustion, the mafia trying to murder you, petty coworker bickering, their ship maybe being weird, that sort of thing. Ask about any non-secret details of their ship to see if you're familiar.

I don't know, are duduk ship vents big enough to crawl around in?

Tell them you would like to work for them. Please. But also they need to not forget to get Pond's stuff.

...huh, not a rival group OR law enforcement? Makes me wonder why "Pond" approached you, then. Maybe they're independent contractors...

It's really the best place to go for you. You can hide under the engine until the scary things you're dealing with are dealt with.

>immense sexual exhaustion

It seems a bit early to be assuming these attractive[ss] aliens are [s]reciprocally at all sexually attracted to you.

But yeah, jump on that opportunity like you want them to jump on your back.

In for a penny. What else have you got going? It’s time to go on grand adventures in space.

I mean, do we need to crawl around in the vents anymore? I thought we only did that because we didn't like being around our previous crew.

A job with even one person who actually likes you? I don't think that's going to happen again. Take offer immediately
