Julian sure lacks the edge to get his way.

"I don't think they're fully in control of it. It's like grabbing for something when you get knocked over or thrown off balance. Just whatever they're grabbing for could knock this truck over. Maybe we could take turns more slowly?"

"Sure, I could, but every second counts. We almost certainly tripped an alarm back there."


He speaks over the radio: "I'm going to have to take it a little slower. The Starpus are making the van unstable"


"How are they doing that? they shouldn't be able to rock me like that."

He takes another corner.



Pleasant Caller: "The sloshing doesn't seem to have stopped."

5 + 3 + 3 = 11 ... success
If it isn't in fact any better Julian will let Slam know that he could go back to the original speed.

The vehicle almost tips over again, and Slam mutters a string of unprintable verbage.

Julian thinks he felt... something. something similar to the vasic stones of riask when the truck moved. Something associated with Pleasant Caller in specific.

I begin wishing that we knew enough about the Starpus to give them happy pills or anti-nausea medication before moving them. How on Earth does the Concordance get them out of this place? A stupidly slow truck specifically designed for Starpus transport?

I wonder if the usual speakers can tell who's doing what. Well, might as well try to throw them off balance. "Pleasant Caller, could you please stop moving the truck? We've been over this."

Pleasant Caller: "Fine, Fine, I'll stop."


Gentle Arms: "Wait, you can sense that?"

Aha. "What, the other speakers can't?"

Was that spoken only mentally?


Hungry Singer: "No, they can't. Can you see this?"


Hungry Singer pulls one of the other starpus (the one with the soft voice) towards them.
