Topic: Harton Ranch - Whitefall

Having dropped off a grateful Amelia Duquesne and a thankful Natasha Williams (once the spider had been removed, she'd been much happier), the mighty spaceship Kvant now had to collect four precocious rock stars from their ranch.

It wasn't really a ranch - that was just a rustic name for a large country estate about fifty klicks from one of Whitefall's main cities. Covering 100 acres, the centre piece was a large mansion surrounded by a moat, that for some reason contained an upturned skiff.

As the ship approached, they could see a guitar flying through the air - and exploding.

"We're not here to treat them like superstars," Quinn said to no one in particular, "we're treating them like clients." He looked over to Angel. "Hail them Angel."

"Channel open"  Angel said as he pushed a few buttons allowing the Captain to talk to the them since Angel was in no mood to talk to them.

The visual image of the manager of Girls With Exploding Guitars, a large heavy-set man with more fat on his head than hair looked at the two of them.

"Ah", he said, "You're the new bodyguards. I hope you'll be better than the last lot".

"Maczarek Security," he said with a nod. "Requesting permission to land."

"Permission to land granted", the manager replied, "The girls are looking forward to meeting you".

Quinn nodded and then looked to Angel, closing out the communication. "Let's get this over with," he said to no-one specifically.

~CO Quinn

OOC: I'm assuming of course that they don't control a commercial spaceport where we're landing, otherwise a clearance code would be expected.

"Wonder how long the last ones lasted."  Angel said to no-one as well as he finished prepping for landing.  "Landing in 5."  He reported to Quinn.  Angel yawned a bit and flew the ship with little to no effort but still the ship flew very smooth and on course.  He could most likely pilot in his sleep if he had too since he has been flying ever since he could reach the controls.

Quinn shook his head. "Doesn't much matter, the last ones weren't us," he said casually trying to keep spirits up. He watched the ship land perfectly, something that Quinn was always thankful for - a good pilot.

"Come on Angel, time to go say 'hi'," he said with a pause, followed by "and make sure you wear your garrison cap, we want to look our best." As it happened Quinn had already reminded everyone earlier that day that it was formal uniform dress code, cap and all. As a quick reminder, Quinn called over the ship-wide comm:

=I need everyone to report to the cargo bay for presentation - everyone in full formal uniform.= He slightly emphasized the full to iterate the need for the cap.

~CO Quinn

OOC: I figure we don't have any other active posting elsewhere on the ship so I won't bother to repost the announcement elsewhere in the ship.

Angel grunted, *Ya sure* he thought to himself.  "About that Q-Ball my formal uniform ya well it kinda didn't make the trip."  Angel said.  He hated how that thing looked and by COMPLETE accident forgot it back on the other planet.

Quinn stopped. Truth was, he got a kick out of how uncomfortable the uniform made Angel. Quinn had a moment to decide what to do. If Angel wasn't present to meet the clients, it could be viewed as a security breach by the client if they met him later. If Angel was present and out of uniform, it could reflect badly on the Maczarek Security. Keyword 'could'. And having the client think there's a security breach is far worse than having one person show up not in uniform. Weighing the pros and cons in the space of a couple seconds, Quinn turned around.

"Well you'll have to be there anyhow," he said reaffirming his instructions to report to the cargo bay. He threw Angel a stern look, "and I'll have to write up your uniform for refusing to report for duty." He didn't want to have to write up Angel for not bringing his uniform - Angel was reliable when it came to the standard duties of the job, but if he didn't write Angel up it would be 100 times worse with red tape and inspections that would come down on the whole ship and crew. Besides, one meeting with the boss was enough for everyone he felt.

Angel smiled actually and finished landing the ship.  "And landed."  Angel said as he started to shut down everything in preparations to depart the ship.

Re: Harton Ranch - Whitefall

Hyun walked merrily along, leading the two towards an iron-barred gate that went under a watch tower. As she moved to open the gate, a bucket of water was tipped out of the tower, soaking her.

"Lisa!" she yelled, "I hope you're not planning on doing that to our guests!"

Following along, Harper really had no idea what lay ahead. When she heard Hyun Kim yell out, she picked up her pace and jogged to join alongside Angel to see what had happened. Finding the other woman, and client soaked, Harper was confused and glanced around. "What the..."

Re: Harton Ranch - Whitefall

OOC: sorry lost my computer for a few days IT DIED. but I gots a shiny new one.

"Seems like a bunch of children are our clients."  Angel said quietly to Harper before moving inside the gate taking his leather coat off and leaving on the rail.  He did not want the coat to get ruined by 'children' what was left was a white muscle shirt that while not intending too showed off his muscled and tattoo ridden arms.

"Shall we move this along, this is not a time for games we need to be leaving by 1800 hours."  Angel said to Hyun Kim not really needing too leave but wanted to get them moving in the very least.

"No, we don't", Hyun said, "We're going tomorrow".

She continued to walk towards the pool. As she walked on, Angel saw a blonde woman glad in a one-piece swimsuit steal his coat and run off with it.

Bryan, still following along a ways back, saw the woman steal the coat and smiled to himself. He knew he should have said something but as it was Angel he left it for the pilot to handle himself.

Angel rolled his eyes back and calmly took out his gun and shot once into the air.  "Nobody touches the coat."  He said in the same nonchalant tone as usual.  "Fine we can leave tomorrow,  But I would like to have your equipment at least loaded today."  Angel said figuring these girls are not gonna want to do anything but have fun and cause problems something Angel had no problem doing.

Bryan's smile disappeared as quickly as it had appeared, "Wu de tyen ah. What the hell are you doing discharging your weapon around our gorram clients? You want Maczarek to fire us all. Can't understand why she keeps you on anyway. We'd be cleaning less go se with a trained monkey."

Angel twirled his finger around in a who cares sort of gesture.  "Yippie." he continued in the same tone.  "Sup Chu and I was just explaining the policy to our new clients we are being paid to protect them and running off with someone else's property and therefore breaking the law is not something that we want our name to be associated with."  Angel continued his argument is in his mind sound. 

Angel didn't seem to care that Bryan followed actually he couldn't believe more didn't maybe he actually had some authority after all.  Course not many things could actually make Angel care about anything he took this job to gain intel on a few people he was looking for so far he has come up dry and that has made Angel rethink his commitment to the job on more than one occasion.  However when push came to shove Angel was one of the best around and one hell of a pilot which what was usually why anyone would keep him around.

"Stopping a criminal is one thing, but discharging your weapon with no regard for anyone else is something else entirely. You know those things that come out the loud end at nearly the speed of sound. They're called bullets and just because one goes up doesn't mean it won't come back down. Which means that bullet could kill anyone of us, including one of our clients. I'm pretty sure that's a little worse than a stolen jacket." Bryan made sure to come off as condescending as possible. He had no problem with most of the rest of the crew, in fact he quite liked Harper. He just couldn't understand why she was so friendly with Angel, who irked him to no end.
