Sightings: part 1
Wyreth opened his eyes looking up at the buildings boxlike edifice, then yawned. A voice then spoke to him "It lives! Now onto more interesting questions, such as what it is doing on my porch, and what 'it' in fact is?" Wyreth tilted his head to the side to observe a yellow hekshanian calmly smoking.
"It is Wyreth, and as to what I am doing on your porch, this would be where either the liquor ran out or I ran out, I'm a bit fuzzy on which that was." He tilted an eyebrow at the hekshanian, "you wouldn't be adverse to telling me who's porch I am on, now would you?" The hekshanian chuckled and held out his hand.
"Kyo." he stated looking both puzzled and bemused. Wyreth took the proffered hand and squeezed it.
"As mentioned already I'm Wyreth." He then rummaged through the pouches on his belt before pulling out a cigarette of his own. "Now that I've imposed upon your porch, might I impose upon you for a light?" Kyo laughed as he held the cherry of his cigarette out and Wyreth touched his to it. Then producing a flask he asked "Do you drink? Bah, have one anyway if you don't." He then handed the flask to Kyo who drank.
"Do you always give away good vodka to people you just meet?" Kyo asked after reluctantly giving the flask back to Wyreth.
"No, just those who's porches I sleep on. I'm still on Hekshano am I not?" He asked peering up at the speckled sky. "I must be." The serpentine man then dug a com unit out of his pouches and checked the date emblazed on its screen. "Indeed I am, and shall be for a few days yet."
"Not on my porch I hope." Kyo jokingly replied.
"Indeed not, for the pavement makes a poor mattress, and steps a sub-par pillow. Tell you what tho, all you can drink if you have a couch." Wyreth told him.
"I was joking about the porch thing." Kyo said somewhat alarmed.
"I was not about the couch and the booze, I'm grounded for a while yet, and I hate hotels. All I need is a couch and a shower, come on." Wyreth gave him a pleading expression. "There's a liquor store down the street if I recall, your pick before you decide?" Kyo stared at the lanky serpentine man, his tattered wings and ugly scars. Then asked:
"So let me get this strait, I let you sleep here, you fund a bender? I trust the fact that you're not going to rob me blind or leave me dead in an alley exactly why?"
"My honest eyes?" Wyreth asked in a joking manor, and Kyo shook his head. "I'm unarmed, and you get to hold my credit chit?" Kyo sighed,
"That'll do for today, I'm thirsty lets go." Wyreth struggled to his feet and stretched for a moment while Kyo eyed him questioningly.
"I'm moving I'm moving." Wyreth drained his flask then handed his card to Kyo. "As promised." He then started walking down the road. Kyo merely looked at him then chuckled.
"Hey! Come on the store is this way." Kyo then started walking in the other direction as Wyreth fell in step beside him. "What the ARE you doing down here anyway? Don't get many, any actually, offworlders." Wyreth rolled his eyes.
"My plane lost her sail this was the port we could make on reaction thrusters. The station is about boring, so I figured I'd shuttle down." Kyo eyed him strangely.
"Through the mines." Wyreth laughed.
"Did I mention that I was bored? Anyway I'm shorebound for a few days, so I figured I'd hit the bars and grab a local, that's you, to keep me out of trouble." He put his arm around Kyo's shoulders. "Or get me into trouble, it varies port to port." The storefront arrived in front of them and he turned to Kyo. "So what are you getting us?"
"You're really gunna buy?" Kyo looked at him disbelievingly as he nodded. "Well then, I think some grey goose, and we'll go from there." Wyreth laughed.
"You better get a few bottles knowing me."
