Interlude Eleven Point Two: Warren Meets Marr
« on: August 10, 2009, 09:34:11 PM »

Date: 017-226, the 17th day of the 226th year of the Imperium (aprx. January 21, 2808 AD/CE).
Time: 11:57 Imperial Standard Time.
Characters Present: Warren and assorted NPCs, principle among them Lucious Alexander Marr.
Location: Starboard Container Array Access Hatch, Main Concourse Level, ISS Ask Me No Questions.

Immediately after stepping off the Nice Kitty yesterday afternoon, Warren texted a comm message to Marr Industries LIC, as his instructions from his folks said to do.  After a rather anxious night spent in a cheap coffin motel - cheap for here, still expensive as Hell to Warren - he finally got a reply.  It told him to present himself here at noon and he would be "escorted to Mr. Marr's office."

Approaching the massive airlock doors, Warren sees that they seem to be gaurded by three mercs.  From the tac armor, he assumes they are part of the force that polices the Ask Me No Questions, although one of them does seem to be exempt from the standard dress code . . .



The merc with the flowing red hair barks:

"State your name and business!"

Warren has the good sense, or at least he thought he does, to have placed most of his gear in a storage locker, for an oh-so-expensive amount [in his eyes]. So as he stands here with nothing more than his multiband, his civvies, his utility, and his roll of patch tape [he always carries patch tape].

"Warren Keith Patrick McCue the Third, of Bowman's belt. My family does business with Mister Marr, by proxy, and I'm here for an... audience with him."

He pulls from his pocket the letter of recommending proxy of Marr's.

The redhead takes the letter and examines the address on the envelope.  She doesn't - however - break the seal.  Returning the letter, she says:

"Right.  We'll pass you through.  Marr's guys 'll pick you up on the far side."

She turns to the lock control panel and punches in a long code.  With a screech and then a drawn-out groan, the massive doors begin to slide aside.  The female merc raises her voice over the noise to add:

"Smart of you not to come obviously armed.  Marr's guys will probably still pat you down, though."

The airlock doors groan to a stop, revealing an empty space about twenty feet deep and the same wide, which looks like the inside of a huge steel pipe.  An identical set of doors close off the far end, except that these are apparently rigged up open vertically.

"Well, in you go.  You can call me Red, by the way."

She smiles grimly:

"Assuming Marr lets you back out, that is."

"See you later then, Red."

It's probably a little overconfident, but he doesn't really feel at the moment there's any reason that Marr wouldn't let him out of the meeting. He came mostly unarmed, aside from the knife he always carries, and he came with intent to become a customer or perhaps a part-time customer, part-time 'assistant' in matters.

Warr, I'm waiting to respond here until you decide if you're going to keep on playing.  Catch you later, I hope.
