Mae held out the pap: The Origins, part 5
"So you need to get to Valtz?" said Xeta, sword across her shoulder, flanked by her bodyguards: Melleau, Charlotta, Marquiares, and Yuisis."Yep, I've got a boat. Or my crew does."
Outside the Knickknack Shack, Spark's crew had accepted a request to subdue a Colossus.
Typh pointed at Melleau. "Wait, aren't you part of our crew?"
Xeta looked at Melleau and shrugged. "Maybe? She works with a lot of crews."
"Man, why are all Erunes so pretty?" muttered Typh.
"Yuisis is cute," blurted Spark without thinking.
Yuisis blinked and looked at Spark. "You say something?" Immediately, Spark looked away, blushing.
On Xeta's tiny ship, Spark glanced at his crew roster, checking the new recruits they picked up in Auguste. "Drusilla, Jamil, Sutera, Leonore, and Petra," read Spark. "Typh, why is Sen on here? She said she's already with a crew."
"That didn't stop Melleau," said Typh, sounding hopeful.
Teena shook her head. "Sen's with the Grandcypher, Typh. You know what that crew's after, right?"
"Oh yeah, Djeeta's friends," chuckled Karteira. "Dontcha know, they fixin ta' go ter Estalucia?"
Typh and Spark stared blankly. "Estalucia?!"
"Estalucia," repeated Karteira."I'll be smoked if we ever cross paths again."
Typh's shoulders drooped. "O-okay," he mumbled. He looked around hastily for a change of topic. "A-anyway, what's that?".
Everyone exchanged glances. Typh was pointing at Teena. "That's a girl, Typh."
Typh cringed. "I-I mean..." Clearing his throat, he held out his hand to Teena. "Well, uh, welcome to the crew, new recruit!"
"Um, she's been in our crew for a while," said Spark.
A few seconds later, Xet crashed her ship on Valtz.
To be continued in part 6...
