Benedict emerges from the bathroom to see most of his allies locked in the airlock with the Montana theme blasting through the speakers. Beatrix sits alone nearby with a bucket of candy.
Nova, they all got ETBs right?
I dunno. Probably. Isn’t it more fun to flush the airlock and find out first hand than to actually check?
Here, have some candy. We’re going to find out which one of our allies can last the longest in the vacuum of space.
Yer gonna be waitin’ a while. I mean ISIC and Marquis’ve got those big ass power supplies, right? And don’t guayota live in space?
You’re assuming they won’t kill each other out of boredom.
Well then ISIC’s out, cuz he can’t shoot his own guys with the control collar on. So… Marquis or Aurox?
My money’s on Marquis.
Yeah, but guayota feed on processed power sources. I’m bettin’ on Aurox.
Marquis will just snipe him before he gets there.
Bea, Aurox is ARMORED.
Marquis can crit a target more than once.
Naw, I think the big guy’s too fast for that…
500 credits on Marquis.
A thousand on Aurox.
Two thousand and your thumbprint on this paperwork authorizing me to perform experimental surgery on your kidneys.
Three thousand. No signatures.
Awww… you’re no fun.
A loud cough sounds behind them, causing both of them to turn around. Ghalt glares at the pair with his arms crossed. “If you two are done with your little show, I think it’s time to finish the funeral. Nova?”
“Airlock decompressing in 3…2-”
“Nova! You know what I meant! Open the airlock.”
Nova sighs. “You’re no fun, captain.”
Ghalt glares at the Battleborn as they file out of the airlock. He turns around and yells, “And turn off that damned music! I can barely hear myself think.”
Montana groans as the music stops playing. “Aw dude! I was enjoying that!”
Ghalt shakes his head and turns back to Toby. “I never really knew your cousin, Toby, but you have my condolences.” He gestures at the airlock button. “Whenever you’re ready, son.”
TOBY (smiling softly):
Thank you, captain Ghalt. And, uh… S-Sorry for almost killing several of the others again!
Toby pushes the airlock’s ejection button, and the assembled Battleborn watch as it’s thrusters activate and steer it into Solus.
TOBY (Tearing up):
Goodbye, Tony… I-I love you…
Toby reaches into Pam’s purse for a tissue, then stops suddenly, his eyes widening.
U-Umm… Sweety…? I think… I think I left my wallet in the casket…
Pam sighs, and leans in to whisper to him as she hands him the tissue he’d been reaching for.
You’ll have to explain to me later why your wallet was in the casket to begin with, but it’s okay… I’d actually hidden your cards elsewhere to cut down on the odds you’d go on some ridiculous grief-fueled spending spree. So as far as I know a good chunk of what was in your wallet is safely back in our quarters.
And I stole your ultra rare foil Finisci Firebringer so literally everything valuable from your wallet is safe.
Ernest: You have a WHAT NOW?!
SCREW my credit cards, I lost my-
Oh… Okay then!
It’s a first edition too…
And if you want it back you will pay us a ransom, or you shall receive it… IN PIECES…
Nice thought, big guy, but I was thinking auction house. i mean, Toby isn’t exactly swimming in credits.
Ernest: 20 plat. On the table. You don’t even play EM, it’s worth sh*t to you.
Yeah, I prefer RPGs and text adventures myself. Every card pack’s basically an RNG loot box. But… I think maybe I can get a little more for it.
What?! NO!! GIVE IT BACK, SHAYNE, OR I’LL-
Aurox hulks over Toby, menacingly.
Toby sighs, resigned.
Mike raises his hand. “30! That’s how this works, right bro?”
45 an’ I’ll shut up for a week.
Ernest glares. 50, and a get-out-of-running-laps-free card.
Toby opens his beak to outbid, but Pam shoots him a reproachful look, as the two of them don’t have much; Toby’s holoshow was created to get him out of debt, after all.
Benedict checks his account.
Aaaaannnddd… that’s gonna kill my interest. Whatever. I mostly use Eldrid decks anyway.
Seventy-five. Ahahahahahahaha… but seriously, seventy-five.
Ernest squints at ISIC. What in the hell you want an Eldrid Magic card for?
I honestly haven’t decided yet. But considering Toby is my one and only friend in the universe, I’m either going to give it back to him in a rare act of kindness or rip it up in front of you all for my own petty amusement.
Do you really mean that, ISIC…?
