Hungry Singer pulls one of the other starpus (the one with the soft voice) towards them.
"Yes, you pulled a different Starpus, uh, I didn't catch, uh, her name, towards you."

They go around another corner quickly, and pleasant caller thinks vaguely unpleasant thoughts and sends them to everyone.



gentle arms: "Can you move things?"

I ask Slam "How many more turns are there going to be?"

Big Digger: "He can try after we're done with this."


Pleasant Caller: "oh that's unpleasant"

I try to guess how much longer the whole sloshing from turning business will go on for and let the Starpus know how long that will be.

I start to think a little about what it would mean if I could move things... If I could move things, they wouldn't need a speaker for the Starpus, no, they wouldn't need the Starpus at all. They'd just need me, or copies of me... Uh-oh.

Pleasant Caller: "At that point will it stop being unpleasant?"

Julian hears three shots being fired, and he thinks he hears bullets hit the van.

Looking around quickly, he sees Paulis Tatum with a drawn pistol. They whip around a corner out of sight.

Slam: "Royal, we've been shot at. I have no idea how they found us. Rook, is everyone alright?"

Pleasant Caller: "What WAS that!?"

On foot I suppose?

"Hey, I think I saw that guy on the train yesterday."

If pressed about this, I'll mention that I think he's with Kassimon Military Aviation (noticed the insignia and monogram on the cover of his phone).

"We're being shot at. Is everything OK inside the tank?"

And then I relay the response to Slam.

Seven: "KMA is bad news."
Florence: "How did he find us?"
Slam: "I swear he was waiting for us, gun already out. I didn't see him very long."

Quote:
"We're being shot at. Is everything OK inside the tank?"
Big Digger: "No one is hurt. This is quite uncomfortable though. what is 'being shot at'?"

I am briefly at a loss of how to describe being shot at.

"Someone's... Trying to put holes in us to stop us from moving you."

Slam: "But how would they have found you?"


Royal: "Did they get a tracker on us?"


Seven: "If they have one, its very subtle... let me see if I can pick one up."


Slam: "Is there a point it trying to loose pursuit, or should we just try to get off the station?"


Royal: "If they can track us here, they can track us to our aquarium."

Hungry Singer: "What! they're trying to stab us? That didn't sound like a stab!"
Big Digger: "Why are they trying to stab us?"
