Oh! Sorry Chief I didn't see you sitting there.
Drops Shades, looks over left shoulder, over right shoulder, lifts shades again, looks over shoulders again, drops shades, leans in....
We may know of this 'eye of cobra', that is to say I can't profess to possessing it, but I may also know of it's location. I may know of the person who might possess it, you might say we're "2 Arcturian pea's of the same cloning pod"...
But I would like to talk to you about something else. We have eyes and ears everywhere Mr Boar, we know that your group ...intercepted... some cargo. We know that what you thought to be innocent cargo has in fact attracted a lot of ...attention..., I would imagine you would quite like to relieve yourself of the burden dispute the cost to you. I wouldn't actually try to contact the ...trader... you got it from, he's gone ...far away... now.
I choose my words carefully Mr Boar, it is unacceptable to have this cargo of experimental ...equipment... out there in public hands, as it is unacceptable that it reaches its intended destination. Let's say that for now knowledge of this cargo stays between us. Of course if any of this reaches Galnet wee will be forced to deny all knowledge and ...clean up... the mess.
But suppose this stays between us, suppose an agent of mine was to appear in ...the place... we discussed and happened to be in possession of this eye you speak of. Now suppose an anonymous Winged Cobra might cross his path. I suppose it would not be out of the question that said Cobra was indeed willing to hand over the experimental wea...equipment... as evidence, and that said agent may see his way to return this ...cultural artefact... to you, it would only be fair as a reward for handing in such suspicious cargo. We have no real interest in cultural artefacts anyway, unless their weaponizable.
Now, I know the GIA evidence lock-up number but it'll take me a few days to organise the release of the artefact from the research department... I mean I 'might' know the number if we 'supposedly' kept evidence but it 'might' take me a few days 'if' we have the artefact. I hope no-one heard that...Last edited by Blatant - Sun Oct 5, 3300 10:58 am
