The gun doesn't fire, and Peter is behind a nice thick stump with good sight lines if he needs them.

Luisa stops short and moves slowly towards cover of her own. Kumar faces her, in something of a 'calm down' guesture.

"Luisa, what's the --"

Luisa: "You know full well what's going on! And I intend to find out! Why is the kid really here? He at least seems to be in on it!"

Kumar: "This isn't a shooting matter, Luisa--"

Luisa: "<foreign explicatives> it is! You're putting the status of miracle workers in jepordy and who knows what else you're doing!"

She probably won't hesitate this next time.

OCC: her will roll has 14, your 'find cover' roll was 4. nice.

Peter unfastens and pulls his gun from it's holster, while keeping it out of sight behind the stump in the process... His mind races through the cover stories he's considered, but he doesn't want to pick one under stress and have to stick to it, especially knowing so little about Homeline and the Miracle Workers. Better to let Kumar do the talking, and hope Goliath doesn't get into the trouble.

Disadvantage checks:
11 vs Impulsiveness (15)
8 Vs Overconfidence (12)
((If Goliath is close enough to get involved, Peter would summon him to cover or grab him if close enough to pull there if needs be. ))

Luisa really isn't worried about the dog. Who is coming up behind her slowly.

Kumar looks over at peter, and after several glances, he says:

"Peter would be in danger if he was tracked at all. He helped turn in a smuggling ring in the Patrol. If his whereabouts on are any records at all..."

Luisa: "Liar! That isn't enough to explain it. Give me the truth!"

Kumar glances over at Peter one more time.

"You're not cleared for that information! Who do you think you are!? You're the one putting people in danger. Do you always wave a gun when someone won't tell you something, or were you saving this psychotic break for a special occasion? Do you think finding out will be worth all the jail time they'll give you for this?"

Luisa: "Then show me some paperwork!"

Kumar: "Its back at the base camp. We wouldn't carry it around."

Luisa fumes. She's not sure exactly what to do next.

Peter stand up and holsters his gun...

"She does not get to see the paperwork! She doesn't have clearance. What she does have is a boatload of trouble for threatening us with a gun and endangering our field operations like this.

We don't want the attention of your court-marshal, so you can drop this now, Luisa, or end up in jail. I guess there is one other option, you could kill us both and cover it up somehow... but chances are that will end with jail too... or banishment on a backwater world."

Luisa: "Then get out of my hair and off of my world. We're heading back to base camp, and I'm dropping you off there. Someone else can deal with your baggage! Hand over the guns. I promise I'll give them back, but I want out of this. And fast. And oh, court martialed? I'm a civillian! Not some one-reality patrolman!"

Peter shoots Kumar a dirty look... See that's the kind of mistake I wanted to avoid by letting you do the talking... She's in charge? I thought Kumar was the boss?...

"We're just doing our jobs lady, I'm not giving you my gun. You're the crazy person threatening people... drop it!"

Luisa: "And you're the government agent sneaking into a civilian organization and endagering thousands of lives -- not that you one reality patrolmen care -- by doing so! I'm not putting down my gun, and I'm not staying with you two any longer than I have to! If you need to stay on this world, do it by yourselves."

Having no idea what the hell she is talking about, Peter looks at Kumar and gives a subtle shrug...
