>"You want to leave the ship? Why?"
"Well, sir..."

How do I say this?

"Some of the stuff I had our guys get me, so I could fix the ship, it's, it's uh, it's wrong."
>"'Some'? You only put one thing on the shopping list."
"And... it's the wrong battery, sir."
>"You blaming our errand runners?"
"No. I mean... it was probably an honest mistake."
>"Don't be patronizing, Anashi."
"I didn't..."
>"Alright, we're all very busy. Can I trust you to be able to go out and get whatever battery you need on your own? You can't talk to anyone if you do, we've had some people lingering out there, asking too many questions."

Oh no, your abusive crew of douche bags will refuse to work with you anymore.

You know what? Who cares about them? They suck and are terrible people. If the only reason you're worried about leaving is 'they'll try to kill me', your crew are clearly the worst people. If you can rig the ship's systems to fail on the way out and broadcast any illegal stuff the ship is hauling, do it, then leave.

That cute girl might be manipulating you, but she is literally the only person to treat you with kindness ever, so... Why not? Better kindness for bad reasons than genuine extreme hostility.

What the hell does your crew do? Is keeping prisoners aboard a private vessel even legal?

I wander around and fix a few more things. Come to think of it, now that I'm thinking about leaving, there's kind of a *lot* wrong with the ship that I never got around to doing.

Ah, but I know if I start thinking like that, I'll never leave. There's always something to work on with this ship.

I guess I can just give a list of things that should be maintained. Maybe a list of grievances too. On second thought just the maintenance list. I'm pretty sure the list of grievances counts as 'disrespect' and the boss doesn't like that much. Or is it worse if I just leave without anything? I'll just leave a note saying I can't work on the ship anymore, and that's kind of true. In a mental sense.

I'll leave the note where they'll find it after awhile, but I don't want them to know I've left until after I'm gone. They won't like that one bit but they won't like me leaving one bit anyway.

>Why are there prisoners?
I uh, don't really know. Like many people on the ship, the guards don't like curiosity inquiries. I don't know if it's legal, but dock laws are weird. It's not like we're a prisoner transport - the crew is just a regular cargo crew - but, well, like a lot of the things on the ship, if it's not mechanical, I try not to worry about it.

>Rig the ship to fail on the way out
I don't hate them! They just... aren't great to be around.

>Broadcast any illegal stuff they're doing
Actually just in case they do follow me I bet it'd be good if I could, er, blackmail them. Maybe. I'm not good with that. Maybe Pond would help me. Uh... ahhh that's a big thought but if I gather up the evidence on the ship then it probably wouldn't hurt! As long as I'm not found out. Which if I'm found out then I'm in trouble anyway so I'll just do it!

Yeah I'll just go up to Pond and say 'hey we barely met but do know anything about blackmail' that'll...

No, I really shouldn't talk myself out of this by being sarcastic.

I take pictures from the crawlspaces of all the weird, unlabeled cargo, and take a whole lot of digital conversation logs that I'm pretty sure are supposed to be secure and private but aren't, and get on out of here.

I really, really hope I'm not making a big mistake, but the best thing about being a non-employed employee is that I don't have a reputation that'll follow me, so in theory the worst case is that I just have to lay low for a little while and then look for a real job.

Maybe this was inevitable and maybe I should've done this a long time ago. I've definitely thought about it, but when I think about the past, it's... always kind of been this way.

I stare at the airlock for awhile before going to open it.

Okay, I'm out. I'm out. I have my things and I'm out of the ship. My things fit in my usual backpack so that was easy, and there's so many boxes getting loaded and unloaded now that me leaving isn't really anything conspicuous.

... so I'm out. I look up the place where Pond was staying and I go over there. That's... a few blocks away. It's not far but it's far enough that I need to walk, and when I walk I'm going to have a chance to think about what I've done and oh no there's the nerves there's what happened and I made everything that just happened happen.

I'm so starved for any niceness that I completely left my shelter just to talk to someone who's probably manipulative and might not even want to see me beyond the whole warning thing I can do.

I'm at the place, but the crew was going to see her too so they might see me and... okay how do I do this? Do I just... go in the hotel, up to her room, and... what, talk to her?!
>>
No. 954021 ID: 0fae41

Yeah. Ask if you can just crash on her couch if knocking on the door has exhausted your social interaction capacity for the day.

Yup, you're all in now so there's nothing to do but go up and seduce that cute little Duduk!

Or more likely massively trip over your your words and spill every bean in your can, but Pond seemed to think that was cute and she'll get the gist of what you're trying to say, so it'll all work out anyways!

Break it down first.

This.

Also don't forget to warn her that the others on the ship know she's staying here. She's gonna need to switch rooms.

No. 954070 ID: 1dc20c

Just do it, you know you can. Don’t think too hard about it. Foresight is great but at a certain point you’re just overthinking things.

Just walk up to her room, knock on the door, and talk to her.

That right there: "I made the things that happened happen."

Savor this feeling. That's the feeling of you taking back control of your life. It's okay to feel butterflies when you're first doing it, but don't feel ashamed of it.

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.

She's in danger. Pond or not, this address is compromised. Your former crew is on it's way to exact revenge. Best she prepare or leave.

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!"
>"Wait a second, are you one of those assholes from dock E9?"
"Y-yes."

"I mean no."

"I mean I don't think I'm an asshole but I'm from the ship from - I quit so no I'm not with them but until 15 minutes ago I was!"

...
>"Do you think duduks all look the same, cause we're on opposite ends of the spectrum! You are goading for a fight, aren't you?! Claws up and poofed out and everything!"

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?"
