Book 9: The Body Politic
Part IV: We Kept the Party Hats


Captain Tagon:Ambassador, we will not be 'porting directly to you. We are being pursued.
Ambassador Breya:Tagon, this embassy is secure. Just run straight to us.
Captain Tagon:And let our pursuers know who our clients are? That would be bad for business.
Ambassador Breya:Business indeed. I'm already paying you twice what you originally asked. This had better not be a ploy for more money.
Captain Tagon:A ploy? Ambassador, you wound me.
Ambassador Breya:Wound, nothing. I'm holding out for a head-shot.
