Location: SFRIM Offices. Medical Bay. Nahyeen VII. Zoar & Sons Factory.
The main chamber of the medical bay is packed. Extra beds have been set on the floor and every spare niche. There are haggered, scarred and emancipiated minmatar on the beds being tended by nurses and doctors. A wall has been opened up and leads to a view of what seems almost like an endless series of bunks. The bunks are in barracks order and filled with people. Some are in small groups with white smocked counselors. Others are just staring into space sitting, while others are sleeping or sitting on the floor engaged in simple games or quiet talks. in short, total bedlam and a scene of quite a bit of misery.
There are now 10,800 slaves remaining.
[ 2016.01.24 03:47:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters. The lights are dimmed due to the hour. She quietly talks to the night supervisor. There are boxes and packages as if a large move is getting ready.
[ 2016.01.24 03:52:55 ] Lucas Raholan > /emote looks over from the datapanel he's standing in front off running numbers on
[ 2016.01.24 03:53:35 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Hi Lucas" she says softly as she walks over. " it's almost done, finally."
[ 2016.01.24 03:54:01 ] Lucas Raholan > /emote nods
[ 2016.01.24 03:54:42 ] Lucas Raholan > Yes, I hope the operation here isn't to taxing on you, Ms Jenneth stated she was worried about your stress
[ 2016.01.24 03:55:01 ] Lucas Raholan > You are Ok Luna I hope?
[ 2016.01.24 03:55:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote shrugs diffidently. "It is what it was."
[ 2016.01.24 03:55:54 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote chews her lip for a minute, just looking around.
[ 2016.01.24 03:56:22 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote straightens and looks at Lucas "I have a.. care place for the last 10,800 but a few made enough progress or we might have leads on holders with another family members.. well i was hoping to bring them with me to the winery Lucas."
[ 2016.01.24 03:56:29 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > She looks at him. "I promise they will be fine and productive."
[ 2016.01.24 03:57:41 ] Lucas Raholan > Well, that does sound like a good way to help them forget the torment the've been through. though if I turn up and my estates been burned down by ten thousand drunk slaves I'll be sending you the bill
[ 2016.01.24 03:58:19 ] Lucas Raholan > /emote smiles
[ 2016.01.24 03:58:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says wryly "It's only about 2,000 Lucas." She shakes her head slightly.
[ 2016.01.24 03:59:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "The other 8,000 or so.. are too badly damaged mentally. it'll take years.... I have a safe place for their long term care arranged."
[ 2016.01.24 04:00:52 ] Lucas Raholan > Are you sure you'll be able to hold a place that'll spend that long assisting them, sadly to say but many institutions would simply hmmm despose of slaves as damaged as they are, if this medical files are accurate
[ 2016.01.24 04:01:08 ] Lucas Raholan > though it is a noble cause I'll give you that
[ 2016.01.24 04:01:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I found a place. Several places. Some are placed already. They'll be fine." She sighs,
[ 2016.01.24 04:01:37 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "But you are right quite a few would say that."
[ 2016.01.24 04:02:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Quite a few said that." She trails off.
[ 2016.01.24 04:02:30 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads by. She bows respectfully in passing, but doesn't interrupt*
[ 2016.01.24 04:03:45 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote smiles faintly at Aria. She turns her attentionto Lucas. "I'll have the 2,000 I think are healthy enough moved by Monday."
[ 2016.01.24 04:04:02 ] Lucas Raholan > /emote paces down to one of the medical beds looking over the occupant while listening to Luna
[ 2016.01.24 04:04:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We're approaching growing season and its high time we got your wine growing" she says, thinking Lucas might need some more reasons to play along with her.
[ 2016.01.24 04:04:34 ] Lucas Raholan > Spendid, lets just hope there fans of red wine, this seasons been rather poor on the white
[ 2016.01.24 04:05:00 ] Lucas Raholan > Prehaps this cycle ehh
[ 2016.01.24 04:05:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks releived. "Good. Thank you Lucas"
[ 2016.01.24 04:05:05 ] Lucas Raholan > /emote smiles at luna
[ 2016.01.24 04:06:24 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "How have you been?"
[ 2016.01.24 04:08:24 ] Lucas Raholan > Tired, despite my best efforts the Elements we extracted from the Drifter Hive systems have refused to relent their secrets, in fact all theve done is short circuited 4 of my labs and given 2 of my researchers 3rd degree burns
[ 2016.01.24 04:09:22 ] Lucas Raholan > coupled with the frantic schedule back on the holdings and other personal matters I'm afraid I rather run off my feet
[ 2016.01.24 04:11:02 ] Lucas Raholan > Oh and getting blown up in rather unfortunate encounter with dear Apollo Tyrannos, which was a shame, i was rather attached to that Stratios
[ 2016.01.24 04:11:27 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote frowns. "I am sorry for your losses." She adds ".. the Society is doing fine. Do what you need to."
[ 2016.01.24 04:13:01 ] Lucas Raholan > Thats good to hear, I should hopefully be turning my attention towards Upwells ongoing projects, with hope I may be able to aquire one of these Citadels said to be in production
[ 2016.01.24 04:13:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "That would be agreat benefit to us. I'll contribute what I need to in order to help get it done."
[ 2016.01.24 04:15:31 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at Aria "Lucas do you mind if have a word with Ms. Jenneth before I retire for the night?"
[ 2016.01.24 04:16:41 ] Lucas Raholan > Well of course Luna just don't get to into the wine when you do, I would hate to find you drunkenly married her off the some lowborn Stable boy
[ 2016.01.24 04:17:00 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote gives a smirk despite herself. "Oh I won't"
[ 2016.01.24 04:17:00 ] Lucas Raholan > /emote laughs sligtly
[ 2016.01.24 04:18:08 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote bows her head slightly and makes her way towards Aria.
[ 2016.01.24 04:18:11 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote didn't appear to be listening, as she was filling out notes on a data pad, but her right eyebrow lifts a good two centimeters*
[ 2016.01.24 04:18:34 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote sets the pad aside* Salve, Directrix.
[ 2016.01.24 04:19:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Ave. Ms. Jenneth.. back to... well not normal, but here quickly I see". She gives an approving smile.
[ 2016.01.24 04:21:10 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I ... didn't want to just leave my duties here idle, Directrix.
[ 2016.01.24 04:21:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rub the bridge of her nose. "Aria.. can yuo make sure to let the supervisors know which ones you are trying to help find their families in the Empire." She pauses "I'll be having them sent to Lord Raholan's winery so we can keep working on that"
[ 2016.01.24 04:21:31 ] Aria Jenneth > ... especially ... considering who we were ... seeing.
[ 2016.01.24 04:21:50 ] Aria Jenneth > Yes, Directrix.
[ 2016.01.24 04:22:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. "Good."
[ 2016.01.24 04:24:47 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. I ... saw the video.
[ 2016.01.24 04:25:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says sourly "Lest you let the almost 'normal' veneer of things.. even though 'off' fool you."
[ 2016.01.24 04:25:41 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it wasn't ... normal, no.
[ 2016.01.24 04:26:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods.
[ 2016.01.24 04:27:08 ] Aria Jenneth > ....
[ 2016.01.24 04:27:14 ] Aria Jenneth > Why industrialize it?
[ 2016.01.24 04:27:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I don't ... understand. Oh, well.
[ 2016.01.24 04:27:42 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Another example, i think, of how Synthia's AI.. well.. sees things in not quite human terms"
[ 2016.01.24 04:27:59 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Like her fascination with the cuttlefish experiments. Didn't that get her going?"
[ 2016.01.24 04:28:27 ] Aria Jenneth > ... um. Actually, I thought that was pretty interesting, too, Directrix.
[ 2016.01.24 04:28:55 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Yes. But .. the structural aspect of it I think appeals to her mind." She shrugs.
[ 2016.01.24 04:29:18 ] Aria Jenneth > ... but ... I guess I kind of like seeing ... signs of intelligence in other species. And ... what those signs are like and how they work.
[ 2016.01.24 04:29:28 ] Aria Jenneth > ... whether we think ... similarly, at all.
[ 2016.01.24 04:29:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly.
[ 2016.01.24 04:30:02 ] Aria Jenneth > ... anyhow ... um. I don't mean to keep you from his lordship, if ... you still need to speak.
[ 2016.01.24 04:30:14 ] Aria Jenneth > ... ... but ... Directrix?
[ 2016.01.24 04:30:18 ] Aria Jenneth > Thank you, for today.
[ 2016.01.24 04:30:52 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote simply nods.
[ 2016.01.24 04:31:02 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote yawns. "I am tired, Aria, I will be going to sleep now."
[ 2016.01.24 04:31:48 ] Aria Jenneth > Sleep well, Directrix.
[ 2016.01.24 04:32:46 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Likewise." She replies simply. Then exits.
