You know the drill, Breya. I'll need fifty percent in advance before we commit personnel or materiel to the field on your account.
We might as well get this over with. I don't have cash, Tagon. Politics back home have dried up my funds.We're friends, right? Can we work this out?
I'm just a big softie, Admiral. For you, eighty percent. Cash.
My appeal to the cockles of your heart appears to have found you cockle-less.
And since you're obviously in dire straits, I'll let you pay in advance.
