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.
