    "You're coming?" he asked. "Honestly it's a pretty run of the mill corp," he said. Fahir cut up the not-bacon and put it on the back of his fork with not-scrambled eggs. When you were out in the belt you couldn't really recall the last time you had eaten real meat and fresh eggs.

    "You can get a few hours rest, honestly. Then you can help make sure it gets stowed properly. Luis would probably be glad of the help after an hour getting paint off the cargo bay floor."

    He didn't really want to see her in a new light, but that was a little impossible now. Truth was, the night had been fairly memorable. Those bits he could remember anyway. The pod launch remained his only true regret now his head was mostly back in order.

    "Good night out?" he asked.

    "Eh. It was alright," she dismissed, shoving a whole strip into her mouth. "...Mmmmm." The groan of pleasure could not be helped, her shoulders slumping in as nearly accurate flavor overtook her senses. "God I love solid rock."

    She sighed lightly and licked her fingers clean, gaining a healthy appetite in that moment. "Thanks for the srock up." She gestured toward the food stores.

    "Bitch doesn't know what she's missing." She wondered if the tech had left anything worth nabbing behind.

    "Situation at Ganymede is worse than we thought," he said. "We're going to head to Ceres next. Best bit of solid rock out in the belt. Taking some isotopes back. We'll be well in the black. Take a few days off."

    "You don't have any friends or family on Ganymede?" he asked before taking a sip of coffee. Beautiful, bitter coffee. Could what had happened on Ganymede have anything to do with Ren? He wondered.

    Iris snorted, her tone turning dry. "No. Why? You don't... do you?" Fuck, she hoped not. Always became time to bail on a place once the captain started getting unlevel headed about shit.

    She had just broken in her pillow for her neck, too.

    "Na, fortunately not," he replied. "Was just thinking that if Ren hasn't bailed on us that she might be dealing with some news. Would explain turning off the tracker.

    "Thought I'd ask is all." He gave a shrug. "By the time everyone has sobered up on Ceres might be some work taking shit for repairs out there."

    She quirked a brow at the line of questions he kept asking but said nothing on it. A bloke like Ren wasn't cut out for this stuff, she knew that. The quicker the girl saw it too the better it was for all parties involved. Fahir's concern over getting a crew member back was a solid one-- it breed some respect for him in the back of her thoughts. But in the end she thought it best he just cut a loss and let her go.

    Hold out till someone better comes their way.

    She kept this to herself, woofing down the food with exceptional speed. "Whatever you say, Boss."

    The word triggered a memory. She blinked, clearing her throat. "I'm going to hit the sack."

    "Yes, sure, fine," he said with a hurried nod. Apparently that memory had stayed with him too. He still couldn't believe the club girls had been quite so thoroughly ignored. The two of them had got very wound up in each other. He felt his heart drum out a faster beat as some of those memories returned and that only seemed to lead to more of them. Though that were broken apart, the influence of the drugs seemed to have painted them into his mind with brilliantly vibrant colours.

    "Coffee machine will probably be on in another couple of hours when I get back. If this Corp turned out to be secret captain kidnappers you get up and bring all the guns, sasa ke?"

    Sasa ke,” she echoed, rubbing heavily at her face and peeling herself out of the chair.

    She didn’t linger long in her thoughts about the reminder, half unwilling to and half too beat up from last night to care.

    Without another word, she shuffled out, a slight limp to her walk as she went.

    As he watched her limp away his smile was half fondness for the new memories and half appreciation for how unashamedly she was Iris. He could tell himself that it was because of the job and the role he felt he has to fulfill to be respect by his crowd. Mostly he was just the kind of person that kept on mentally juggling his worries until he tripped and broke them all.

    No one abducted the captain. He returned an hour after leaving with a new manifest. He had bought some goods to sell on, feeling entrepreneurial today, but mostly he'd taken payment to move some more cargo. Crew was going to have another nice bonus when they reached Ceres. And he would pay off another sliver of the mountain of debt.

    Fahir headed directly towards the coffee pot.

    "Nice to see you without a bullet in your back," came Iris's voice behind him as she walked in. The day more than half done, she was showered and changed back into her normal drawl of canvas pants and a tee. She popped a lolipop out of her mouth, a single glance at the coffee pot enough to convince her she wanted the same.

    She moved to his side, waiting her turn as she pulled down two mugs. "We good to go now?"

    "I'm so likeable it was never going to happen," he deadpanned. He was not a particularly likeable person. Fahir was skimming down the list of materials on the manifest. "What even is Helium three?" he muttered to himself. His cursory formal education was enough to know it was an isotope and that was it. His learning had really started when he had got a job at fifteen, lying about his age, and started flying. He knew how to store all of the materials they transported, knew their value too. He just had no idea what they were for.

    He had been a better second officer on a corporate vessel than a self-made captain. Back before the Sandfly he had been free to get on with keeping a ship running, which was something he was very good at. Now he had to hire and fire, keep a crew happy, negotiate for their work. These were things he evidently was not as skilled at. It was probably why he spent more time micromanaging his engineers off the ship than planning ahead.

    "First thing in the morning," he said. "Gotta get loaded up. Ren said she'd be back by then and I did agree to wait. I think. Already sent Luis to see if she was seen asking for a ship off Pallas. Not like she's hard to remember."

    Iris snorted, pouring them both a cup and leaning against the counter. "I still say we're better off without her. We barely got off that supply ship with the shit she pulled back there," she leveled cooly, blowing over the edge of her mug.

    He gesticulated with his hands and head in a vague manner that suggested he wasn't sure if that was true.

    "That distress call was a good idea. It's just she went silent and didn't tell us what the fuck she was up to," Fahir replied. "But if she's gone she's gone. Ceres as good a place as any to get more crew."

    Iris dipped her chin appreciatively at that. That truth was as good as any. She pushed off the counter, moving back towards the door and patting his shoulder as she did. "Make sure you got enough porn loaded. S'gonna be a long one."

    She winked at him, the tease irrefutable. With no other word she left again, passing by him like a leaf in the wind.

    The hours passed, the asteroid's concept of night taking hold of those that stayed on it. Finally, the outer door opened and a person could be heard shuffling towards the rooms. Ren. She was pale and shaky, but she was back and whole. She tried to shuffle quietly to her room to pass out.

    "Oh I'm going to end up in her bed again," Fahir whispered to the coffee machine when he was gone. "Not that anyone made it into a bed," he added on.

    "Alright boss?" called Luis as he stepped into the galley. He'd been too far to hear words, but had caught Fahir speaking to an inanimate object. "Cargo is arriving soon."

    "On my way," Fahir said. He like to be meticulous about ho everything was stowed.



    Having left the alarm on for the airlock and forgotten about it Fahir was rather surprised to have it go off.

    A half-dressed Fahir leaned out of his door, saw Ren, and gave a questioning thumbs up.

    "Thought I asked you to leave the terminal in shore leave tracking mode?" he asked, leaning back into his room and mostly out of sight.

    "Didn't I?" she mulled, giving him an innocent look. "Sorry, Captain, be more careful next time." She gave the placate easily, moving past him for her door down the way. She closed her eyes for a moment then keyed at it, going to move inside.

    "Are you in trouble kid?" he asked after her. Fahir was out of sight now, but his door remained open. Part of him hoped for a simple 'no'.

    He had always imagined have a crew as fast as thieves. Like a family on a ship who looked out for one another. There was an element of that, a crew had each other's backs. But the rosters changed quickly. People just didn't get on that well being crammed together into a little box for weeks on end.

    A laugh caught in her throat like a gentle huff, her form lingering at the doorway as she glanced back at his.

    "Captain. We just pawned off stolen warheads. We're all in trouble." Her door puffed closed as she left it to that. It would be a few days of travel before she was seen up and about the ship again. Perhaps she went on a bend herself.

    "Maybe," he muttered. His door closed.



    There was a ring on the console where he kept his coffee. It was actually about twenty five rings that he hadn't bothered scrubbing off that formed one larger ring.

    He set the metal cup down on its magnetic plate and reached for the microphone.

    "Mag-boots on, double check everything is tied down. We're going zero-g in one minute. Four days to Ceres, going to take a little detour around a pair of Martian and Earther patrols getting a little close to each other," his voice rang out across the intercom.

    Iris flopped into the crash chair besides him, cracking on a lolipop and shoving the stick in her pocket.

    "A detour?" She echoed, pulling her screen close and tapping across it to get a better sight of what he mentioned. "You think they're going to give us any trouble?" She glanced up at him, the topic certainly something that fell into her area of concern. Shooting down a martian ship to avoid trouble got you in more trouble than just being caught with the cargo.
