A small post
The look on Sung's face when he looked at the engine lanced through Willow: he looked wounded beyond bearing, and more than a little lost. Then, a look ofdetermination slammed into place,and the Captain spoke with more energy and clarity then he'd shown since the incident with the finger device.
“All right,” he chuckled. “So, this is zhen daomei. But what ain’t? This is our lot, right here, right now. Ain’t nothin’ can be done ‘bout this right now. But I tell ya what we are going to do. We’re going to move forward with our plan an’ try t’ trap these niao shi de dugui in such a way as t’ give us the edge. Once we’re good an’ sure that they ain’t going t’ chop off our tender bits no more...well, that’s when we turn our attention t’ these particulars. Dohn la ma?
“One last thing,” Sung put a calming hand on Willow’s shoulder. “I need you t’ speak with Matherson, Mei Mei. Let him know t’ be careful in his search for the device jammin’ our signal. Whoever’s got it ‘as likely as not is the one that’s done this fine job o’ ship surgery.”
Willow nodded, drawing strength and encouragement from the hand on her shoulder, a familiarity the Captain rarely showed towards her. It was withdrawn quickly enough, though as the Captain ordered the engine room secured and prepared to head out again.....only to return and ask Trish and WIllow to join him in the galley while Wolf and Tess went to get John.
"Wolf and Tess are going to take a while, aren't they? If Matheson is walking to the caves, he wouldn't have gone far. Let me find him- I'll be back before the shuttle is, even with Tess at the controls," Willow finished with a demure smile. (OOC: Assuming agreement from Sung)
Willow made her way to the cargo bay, intending to use the ramp down to the planet's surface. She was pleasantly surprised to find Matheson was still there, fiddling with knobs on a black box in his hands.
"Mr. Matheson-san," Willow greeted him warmly, "thank you again for the loan ofyour men - they were most helpful in the medical bay. They told me that you know Miss Amber-sama, "she said neutrally while watching him closely," you will be glad to know that she is fine...just exhausted."
"Captain Sung asked me to have a word with you," she continued. " I understand you are helping to determine who has been trying to transmit off planet. I guess that's what that item (she waved at the device in his hands) is for, but please, be careful. We have reason to believe that whoever it is has some pretty powerful technology at their disposal. Turned a substiantial piece of engine into a pile of dust. "

Before and During Meeting
Wolf strode quickly into the shuttle a look on his face easily read by any who knew him well as Tess certainly did.
“Real bad someone using something may have totally turned our engine coil into dust. Yet nothing we have today could do that. I’m thinking it’s a bluff and the coil was stolen and the dust left behind.
“Lio coh jwei ji neong hur ho deh yung duh buhn jah j’wohn!” the pilot spat.
~sigh~ “Wyatt wants us to hit the atmo processor and pick up John. With the coil gone no need for the turbine anymore.”
“Alright, handsome, sit yer tush down and strap in. We ain’t wasting no more time on this ni nio ru hai,” Tess said flatly, snapping her goggles down over her eyes. Wolf barely had a chance to latch his belt before Tess had released the safety clamps and hovered away from Rocininate.
“Wei what the guay!(*1) at least let me strap in you, jen mei NAI-shing duh FWO-tzoo(*2)
As Wolf finally got himself strapped in he watched as Tess dropped her head and kissed the tooth that hung around her neck and the fully slammed down the throttle forward. The shuttle craft rocketed towards the processor.
Tess buzzed John’s multiband, “Drop whatcher doing, John. We’re comin’ to getcha. Change of plans.”
“I swear on the Three Jewels that I will personally shakedown every of those tian di wu yohn passengers fer our girl’s missin’ coil,” Tess growled, “Might’n be wantin’ yer help in that, Wolf. Up fer crackin’ skulls?” She pulled up hard on the shuttle, kicking up a cloud of dust as she settled the craft down.
“Trust me you can count me in for that, no way some Wung bao dahn FAY-FAY duh PEE-yen! is getting away with hurt’n our girl”
Wolf went quiet after that, the rage inside him threaten to take over, eyes closed breathing deep he slowly calmed himself as Tess and he reached the processor. All they needed to do now was pick up John and find out what came next. The next was not long in coming as the three of them made it back to the Rocinante.
“Aside from those minor points,” Wyatt scanned the faces before him. “I was figurin’ on Ma an’ Willow stayin’ with the patients in the medbay. Sifu is with the passengers, but I don’t like jus’ leavin’ the li’l guy alone with that lot. But we’re gonna need all the guns we got here when it comes right down to it. So, I’m open to suggestions. Because right now, I’m about t’ send Tess and--what’s-her-name?--Jessy?--to the caves t’ back Sifu up, an’ make sure Matherson an’ his boys stay in line. That’d leave me, Asher, Wolf, John, an’ Ma t’ take care of whatever firefight erupts here when the mercs show. So, if’n anyone has any better ideas, now’s the time t’ speak up, because Time...well, she ain’t on our side.”
“Cap’n this may be a long shot but up to this point whoever has been doing the sabotage has been one step in front of us. How because he hears things see’s things and he acts on e’m. What if we use all that and greed to get him to show himself. His pals want the case for whatever be the reason, why don’t we give it to them.” Wolf like Wyatt quickly held up his hands as voices started rising. “What I mean by that is we give it to our hidden enemy by putting it before him in such a way he has to go for it because of his greed to look good in his bosses eyes. Everyone wants to be the hero to his boss so he can get more respect from him. I do it, Ash does it, we all do it in some way or nother. So why wouldn’t this hidden guy.”.................
