Hi Ho Hi Ho Noodles!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Day 1, Serenity View’s Spaceport, 7:15 PM PT
“Wolf here headed for the noodle house.....Ahhh where is it?”
Having yet to actually enter the town itself Wolf had no idea where it was the restaurant was. Returning back to Rocinante he talked quickly with Ma. Looking up the noodle house on the cortex Ma pointed out fastest directions for Wolf to get there. As was her nature nothing Wolf could say seemed to convince her to join them so the mechanic promised her a take out meal.
Noting the five star rating, as Wolf was headed off ship, she stopped him at the ramp telling him to dress better then his present attire. Fifteen minutes later dressed more appropriately his guns somewhat concealed, Wolf was finally off ship. a quick check of the outside struts and body of the Rocinante and he was headed into town. Passing Chewie’s ship he gave it a quick glance and continued on his way towards the noodle house................

Not Just Noodles...........
The three of them reached Mei Long’s and found it not just a noodle house but a fancy a place the likes he’d seen, right up there with the Hotel they’d stayed at. The kid had gotten use to those places so seeing all the fancy dressed folks didn’t flap him none. He checked his stuff with Wyatt, this was starting to be habit to go without his iron and it still wasn’t pleasing to him. As they stood to get on the waiting list he heard other folks being told it was a two hour wait without reservations.
“Phew this place sure seems popular.”, he whispered. He loved noodles but he could make, cook and eat his own in less time than that. He was about to tell the others he’s cook um noodles back at the Roc when a lady stepped up to them.
“Capt Wyatt Sung and Guests? Your table is ready. Right this way. Have you ever been to Mei Long’s before?”
Asher looked side long at Wyatt and raised an eyebrow; then followed Wyatt and Willow down the corridor to a private room. The hostess opens the door, bows and motions them to go in. The PR man in him noted the two armed guards; his hormones noticed they were women. ”Oh great, more women with guns.” he thought.
Seated at the table for eight was a drop dead gorgeous woman in a form fitting Alliance uniform. Her black hair, pale complexion and almond eyes show her heritage. She appeared to be too young to have been in the war, but she was still an Alliance officer.
As they entered she stood and bowed in a formal polite manner. “Good day. You must be Captain Wyatt Sung, Asher Talhone and of course, Willow Takahara. You bring great honor to myself by accepting my invitation so swiftly. I am Colonel Sally Wu, commander of the alliance outpost here on Serenity Views. “
Again Ash gave Wyatt a side glance. The kid wondered if the Colonel understood to losses suffered by so many here on this battlefield and their families, but the lady knew his name so it was only polite to smile and nod back to her.
“Yes. I sent you an invitation to join me tonight in honor of your fallen comrade and the exemplary work you did on LV-426. Many would have run, but you stood your ground for others. That is worthy of ...”
The door to the room opened slightly and a blonde woman put her head in to find the Colonel. She nodded to Ms. Wu and Ms. Wu nodded back. “Right. We are free to talk. Please sit and join me for dinner. We have much to discuss, starting with what your business is with Virgil Morningstar?”
“Ah, business talk.”thought Asher. Well he’d leave the talking to Miss Willow and just concentrate on the noodle and the view.

Day 1, Mei Long’s Fine Dining, 7:00 PM PT
Noodle houses in general are not places that Wyatt considers upscale. Historically speaking, Sung hadn’t been in a noodle house that required a month’s wages to reserve a table, but he’s pretty sure that he’d just entered one.
“Phew this place sure seems popular.”, Asher whispers after they had tucked their weapons away and put their names on the waiting list.
“Must be some pretty jing chai noodles…” Wyatt acknowledges as a young hostess approaches them with a pleasant smile.
“Captain Wyatt Sung and Guests? Your table is ready. Right this way. Have you ever been to Mei Long’s before?”
Wyatt catches the Kid’s sideways look and delivers one of his own that warns the young man to be cautious before proceeding down the corridor with Willow on his arm to a private room. The hostess opens the door, bows and motions them to go in. Obligingly, Captain Sung steps through first; in part to make certain he was able to shield Willow from potential harm, and in part to be able to quickly assess the situation and react should there be a need.
Three beings are the first thing that registers with him (OOC: Perception and Intuition checks please). Almost instantly are the easy-going stances of the two flanking the one. Then, it occurs to him that they are all female—Alliance—and one is an officer. The woman at the table is a looker. Her black hair, pale complexion and almond eyes show her heritage. She appears to be too young to have been in the war, but she was still an Alliance officer, and that doesn’t sit well with the captain.
She stands and bows in a formal, polite manner, “Good day. You must be Captain Wyatt Sung, Asher Talhone, and of course, Willow Takahara. You bring great honor to myself by accepting my invitation so swiftly. I am Colonel Sally Wu, commander of the alliance outpost here on Serenity Views.“
“I’m sorry, Colonel,” Sung states dryly. “Invitation?”
“Yes,” She looks at him with large, captivating eyes. “I sent you an invitation to join me tonight in honor of your fallen comrade and the exemplary work you did on LV-426. Many would have run, but you stood your ground for others. That is worthy of...”
The door to the room opens slightly causing Wyatt to tense up a bit—not enough for anyone else to notice, but enough that he could spring into action should the need arise—and a blonde woman pokes her head into the room. She nods to Colonel Wu and Sally nods back.
“Right,” she interrupts herself as the blond leaves. “We are free to talk. Please sit and join me for dinner. We have much to discuss, starting with what your business is with Virgil Morningstar?”
Tilting his head a little to the right, Wyatt steps forward and casually pulls a chair out for Willow while meeting Colonel Wu’s inquiring gaze. He doesn’t figure the Alliance officer is being forthright, and he’s not cottoning to the impression that the woman set of being honored to have them join her for dinner. Truth be told, Wyatt doubts that they would have had any choice in attending the meal had they not just happened onto the same place she’d intended to interrogate them at.
Once the good doctor has been seated, Sung pulls out his own chair and unceremoniously drops into it, dropping the ankle of his right leg across the knee of his left and pushing his hat back on his head. “Virgil Morningstar?” he says with a disinterested expression on his tanned face. “He that fellow that we met with today, Willow? The one up in that house there?
“Well, Ma’am, we ain’t too keen on losin’ limbs ‘n life t’ unexploded ordinance in the Valley an’ we was told that he’s the man t’ talk with if’n we want t’ find our way through without exploding some. That’s the extent of it.”
Removing his hat from his head, Sung places it on his right knee and runs his left hand through his stiffled hair. “Truth be told, Ma’am; this here rock ain’t exactly one o’ my favorite places in the ‘Verse. So, I’d just as soon bury the Ol’ Warhorse with whatever honors me an’ my crew can give, pick up another contract, an’ be on my way. We’re not lookin’ t’ involve ourselves in nothing further, an’ most certainly ain’t looking fer no trouble.
“Didn’t get no invitation. We was out an’ about. However, now’s we’re here perhaps you could point out what’s t’ have an’ what’s not t’ have on the menu?”
