    IC: Shawn Ventar, Bodyguard (Xagobah)

    Senate Apartment Complex

    Zeran Pol, Kree's advisor, opened the door. Shawn nodded politely and lifted his chin as the elderly Xamster looked Shawn up and down, obviously evaluating. Evidently Shawn passed his inspection, for he nodded and turned at their mutual employer. "Good nite, Senator Kree," he said and bowed out of the suite.

    Senator Kree, too, looked at Shawn, her earrings jingling softly. "Come in," she said, stepping back to allow him entry. "Are you settled in?" she asked.

    Shawn nodded, stepping into the room. "Yes, Senator." It was smaller than this one, obviously, and had less plants - Shawn took in the surrounding greenery with a flick of his gaze - but perfectly adequate for him. He looked back at his employer, indicating the scanner in his hand. "If you don't mind, I'd like to make a sweep your rooms to ensure they're safe." He phrased it as a request, but without waiting for a reply he flicked it on and panned around. It was pretty sensitive, so he didn't have to go poking around corners - nothing. Good. He shut it down, turning back to his employer. "All clear," he assured her.

    His immediate duties discharged, Shawn said nothing more. Merely waited to see if Kree had anything in mind.

    Senator Nava Kree
    Senate Apartment Complex - Heading for Ximino's

    Senator Kree, too, looked at Shawn, her earrings jingling softly. "Come in," she said, stepping back to allow him entry. "Are you settled in?" she asked.

    Shawn nodded, stepping into the room. "Yes, Senator." Nava looked at the man. Did he ever crack a smile, she wondered to herself, as he held up a scanner. He looked at her, after quickly scanning the room, indicating the scanner in his hand. "If you don't mind, I'd like to make a sweep your rooms to ensure they're safe." She didnt need to respond, for he had already flicked it on and panned around.

    Nava stood back, patiently watching him, as he finished his scans. Soon, he shut it down, turning back to her. "All clear," he assured her. Well, she did hire him, because he had great references. And good at his job. But she was definatelly going to have to get use to his rather curt behavior. 'Must be part of the job.' she thought to herself. After she stayed quiet for a few moments, she spoke up.

    "I hear theres' good restaurant nearby. Ximino's I think it's called. Close by. Can use my personal unmarked shuttle. I could use good meal, and I hear many Senators go as well. I place call for table. See if they any good."

    With that, Nava tapped on a comlink for a few moments. She strolled around her room, reaching out to touch her plants as she walked about. Not long afterwards, she was booking a table. Mission accomplished, she turned off her comlink.

    "All set. Let's go."

    Ordering someone around. That was another skill nava would need to develop. She grinned.

    IC: Shawn Ventar, Bodyguard (Xagobah)

    Senate Apartment Complex

    Ah, food. The one thing all living beings had in common: they had to eat sometime. Shawn ducked back into his room to deposit his scanner as the Senator strolled around her plants, talking softly on her comlink. Ximino's - Shawn hadn't heard of it, but if it was well-known enough the ship's computer probably would know how to get there.

    Not long after, Kree turned back to him. "All set. Let's go."

    Shawn fell in step beside the Senator as they made their way over to the shuttle bay. Kree palmed open her shuttle's main ramp. Shawn slid into the driver's seat - thankfully a seat sized to standard specifications, not the Xamster-sized model he'd been half expecting to find - and went through the preflight checklist. The nav computer did know the way to Ximino's, so Shawn merely filed a flight plan and let the autopilot take care of it.

    It was indeed nearby, for which Shawn was grateful - it may be unmarked, but it was also unarmed, and unarmed shuttles made him uncomfortable. He set down the shuttle as gently as he could and glanced back at his passenger. She used to be a podracer - what did she think of his flying? Shawn had a feeling the answer would be "not much", not that he really cared to ask anyway. He had a pilot's licence, but that was about all that could be said about it really.

    "We've arrived, Senator," he said instead, popping the restraints and lowering the shuttle's ramp.

    Senator Nava Kree
    Ximino's Restaurant

    Shawn joined Kree, as they made their way over to the shuttle bay. Kree palmed open her shuttle's main ramp. Shawn slid into the driver's seat. She almost snickered at the look on his face. He probably exptected something more her size. No WAY! Nava watched as Shawn checked the nav computer. It did know the way to Ximino's, so Shawn merely filed a flight plan and let the autopilot take care of it.

    It was indeed nearby, and in no time, Shawn was setting down the shuttle as gently as he could and glanced back at her. Nava merely wiggled an ear. She was simply happy he didnt jar her all over the place. She hated not being able to drive herself...but it was one of those Senator things. She did sneak out sometimes, and play with her pod. Just so she woudlnt forget.

    "We've arrived, Senator," he said instead, popping the restraints and lowering the shuttle's ramp. Even when they were alone, he called her Senator. She was definatelly going to have to work on that!

    With a nod, Nava stepped off the shuttle, and stepped down the ramp, moving quickly. She wanted to get inside as quickly as possible. She had to admit, once they got inside, the smell of the food was wonderful. She sniffed gently, her ears going up happily. She then walked smartly to the main desk at the front.

    "I have a reservation." she stated simply. "Senator Kree." Nava looked around the place. Indeed, it was quite busy. She hoped the food was as good as the hype. She waited, until a server came up, and escorted them to a table. They were then handed menus.

    "Time to see what looks interesting." she mused softly, as she sat at her table, looking at the menu.

    Senator Freija Severn
    500 Republica

    Freija shifted in her seat uncomfortably as the reporter from Baar's influential Today radiowave programme set up their recording equipment. Unlike the rest of the galaxy, radiowave was still extremely popular on Baar, and the Baar Broadcasting Corporation office had come to hold a special dread for the Senator.

    "Finished." The reported sat up and smiled at Freija, who grimaced back nervously. "Just a couple of questions for tonight's bulletin."

    "Right you are." the Senator replied, trying to sound confident.

    "Senator Severn, you were elected last term on a promise to turn away from the corruption of the Reddvik years- years in which the Baarian people were seriously under represented in galactic affairs. It might not be so easy to regain our voice in the Senate."

    "Well," began Freija, who was suddenly, inexplicably reminded of school inspection week back when she had been teaching, "Baar is a small planet among big players, we can't deny that. However, I believe that small planets can make a difference on the galactic stage, especially come voting time. At the very least, I will try to represent you better than Reddvik did."

    "That may be difficult when the polls indicate a marked difference between your politics and the wants of the Baarian populace."

    Freija blinked, suprised. "W-what?"

    The reporter hid a triumphant smirk and pushed a datacard across the table. He pointed to a column of figures.

    "Your constituents are in favour of the arms sales you have spoken strongly against."

    "I... I will do my best to balance the wants of my people with what is best for the galaxy." Freija blurted out, standing up. "I think I hear the door- it's so busy right now, would you mind-?"

    Hurrying the reporter out of the door, Senator Severn pulled out her comlink and dialed up her new aide, Myrna Isano. They needed to talk, urgently.

    Myrna was carrying three large datapads in her hands and walking down the hallway at speed when her comm went off. Shifting the weight carefully she almost tripped. Composing herself she held the small device to her ear.
    "Yes Senator. I'll be right there, I'm just round the corner." She picked up her pace and entered the suite.
    "Um, good morning senator. I have those reports from the Baarian Farmer's Unions and the Trade Route Managers."
    She placed the datapads onto the desk and straightened up.

    OOC: On that list of senators, I do believe that Bellassa's senator is missing, just a note.

    IC: Senator Rade Kell of Druckenwell, Ximino's Restaurant

    Seating himself at the table they had found for him, Rade Kell turned and responded to the Trianii. "Sacul '77 will be fine, thank you." At this moment his datapad began vibrating, signaling that he had received a message. Taking it out, he saw that it was from Chancellor Territha.

    Esteemed Members of the New Republic Advisory Council:

    I would like to invite you to Coruscant for
    a meeting in four galactic standard days. The
    intent is to familiarize ourselves with the goals
    of the New Republic and discuss the upcoming bills.
    Please note this is not mandatory, as term hasn't
    started yet, but I would be most pleased if you
    would join me on Coruscant early.

    Sincerely,
    Chancellor Territha


    A meeting of the Advisory Council? This could be interesting, so far the only other member he had met was the Vice Chancellor. Deciding to attend, he quickly typed out his response.

    Chancellor Territha,

    I would be honored to attend this meeting.

    Sincerely,

    Rade Kell
    Senator
    Druckenwell


    That issue dealt with, he surveyed the room he was in to see who else was there. From the pictures and speeches he had seen, he recognized Senators Reldem Fald of Eriadu and Azervado Renning of Anaxes as being present. Interesting, it seemed this restaurant was going to be a popular place for senators to meet, going by its clientele before the senate even began to meet.

    IC: Senator Clement Oracio

    Ximino?s Restaurant

    Clement reclined in his chair ever so slightly, glancing up at the patrons in the restaurant. He had briefly read through many of the Senators? files that his contacts had gathered for him and recognized a few Senators here and there. Actually, every single person in the restaurant was either a Senator or an aide. ?Great. Just what this fine establishment needs?? He mumbled, sipping his wine and perusing the menu for a nice meat dish.

    ?Jamina, could you please come here?? He asked, undressing her with his eyes as she sauntered over to his table.

    ?Yes, Senator Oracio?? Her husky voice took on more of a seductive tone than before, prompting Clement to remember to arrange for no disturbances for the night as he would be very busy.

    ?Could you bring me a list of the items that the other Senators ordered? If it isn?t too much to ask?? Clement winked at her and slid a 500 credit note into one of her pockets. He took a cigar from the case next to him and lit it, puffing occasionally as he observed the others eating and conversing. Soon he would have to go over there and work his magic as well.

    IC: Traer Lin, Republic Palace

    Traer strode into one of the numerous turbolift's dotting Republic Palace. Nodding at a Rodian that stepped out, Traer did his best warble in Rodian, saying [Excuse Me]. It wasn't his best, but the Rodian seemed appreciative, and nodded in return.

    His datapad beeped, and he flipped it open. His seventeen year old son, Aden, left on Tallaan at school, had best not be messaging him again, he darkly considered. He was, however, surprised to see a reply from the Chancellor to his earlier message.

    Dear Traer

    Thank you for the suggestion.
    You should be receiving an invitation
    for a meeting soon. If you'd like to
    speak to me before that, you know where
    to find me.

    Chancellor Territha


    Traer, however, was pleased that the Chancellor had agreed. He felt it important to have the Inner Council organised as soon as possible. He had exchanged numerous messages with the Senatrs of Druckenwell, Mon Calamari, Bothawui and Kuat in the weeks, and had no doubt that he would become closer to these in the future. As Vice Chancellor, he drew a lengthy list of messages from Senators lobbying for his support. Tapping a button on the lift display, the lift accelerated to one of the docking ports on the Palace. From there Traer would get a taxi to the Chancellor's office. Before the lift even emerged, his datapad beeped again.

    Esteemed Members of the New Republic Advisory Council:

    I would like to invite you to Coruscant for
    a meeting in four galactic standard days. The
    intent is to familiarize ourselves with the goals
    of the New Republic and discuss the upcoming bills.
    Please note this is not mandatory, as term hasn't
    started yet, but I would be most pleased if you
    would join me on Coruscant early.

    Sincerely,
    Chancellor Territha


    Traer nodded. The rest of the Council would, if they were worth anything, all come to the meeting. And considering he and the Chancellor had hand-picked them, weighing the various platforms in the Senate, they were worth quite a lot politically. Traer was simply pleased he had been chosen rather than the Senator from Fondor, which would be embarassing for him and Tallaan.

    Summoning a taxi, he made his way to the Chancellor's abode. Flicking through his datapad, he once again ignored the message from his son, and started, once again, typing up his own Bill. The Council was all aware of it, and various parties would be more aware of it as they went along. He would present it to the Chancellor at a later date, but if he had chance he would edit way at it.

    Within ten minutes he had arrived at the Chancellor?s office, having paid what he viewed as an exorbitant fee for the taxi. He was only a merchant, after all, and his first paycheque from the Senate had yet to go through. At least, when he got started, he would have the credits to support his son through higher education. Aden had yet to even leave Tallaan, and he would need to, if he wanted to do well. Traer reminded himself to reply to the message when he got the chance ? Traer preferred to devote his full attention to such things as family, rather than portions of it. It was the apportioning of his focus between the Merchant Guild, his family, and the Rebellion, which had cost him his xenophobic and insanely Imperial wife, Cesca Kya.

    Traer strolled to the Chancellor?s chambers reception area, and greeted the droid receptionist. There were a few non-organics in the Chancellor?s staff beyond Wookie?s, but most of her representatives outside her species were droid.

    ?I am here to see the Chancellor.? Traer paused, for a moment, and continued. ?I am Vice Chancellor Lin.? He was never sure if the droids had been programmed to recognise people, or to simply convey. The Chancellor was known for incorporating more technology into the workplace, but whether she viewed these artificial intelligents as technology or people was unknown to him, and although Cate was more tool than intelligence, that didn?t set a precedent.

    Senator Freija Severn
    500 Republica

    Freija looked up from her desk as Myrna Isano bustled in. Unlike some Senators, she chose her aides for their intelligence and dedication rather than any other 'assets'. So far, Myrna was proving herself to be very useful.

    "Um, good morning senator. I have those reports from the Baarian Farmer's Unions and the Trade Route Managers."

    "Thank you, Myrna." she sighed, taking the datapads. "Could you get me some caf, please? And search through my media dates for the next seven days. I need to do some damage control, and soon."

    She winced at the memory of the interview.

    "Were you aware of the latest poll results?"

    Taking out her personal datapad Myrna scanned the senator's appointments.

    "Let's see, you have the Baarian Wave interview tomorrow morning, and a meeting with the Trading Union in three days time. Other than that there's just the interview with the Senate Review next week. But I have had three requests for appearences and meetings, including one from the Baarian Arms Rights Association."
    She looked up slightly.
    "Uh, as for the polls, I hadn't checked them in the past couple of hours, but I did see a slight decline in support due to the standing on arms sales."

    She paused and smiled slightly for a moment before remembering the other request.

    "Oh!" She said suddenly, "the caf!" She turned to go out of the room before turning back.

    "Will there be anything else senator?"

    IC: Jace Lorr
    location: Private shuttle, en route to Mon Calamari

    The new shuttle was as beautiful outside as its performance was inside. Jace Lorr, the large Mon Calamari he was, wasn?t disturbed at all as the shuttle pulled out of hyperspace and began final approaches to Mon Calamari. The obese senator was due to give a speech on planet today, one that he hoped would further raise morale on the planet and continue Mon Calamari on its path towards, in his opinion, becoming one of the five most dominant planets in the Republic.

    Tak Janz, a young Mon Calamari intern finishing his studies at the Mon Calamari Naval Academy, sat across from Lorr, about two meters away. Sitting next to him was Cha Azzantey, a female Quarren of age 27, who served as an administrative assistant to Lorr. They, along with pilot Jeffrey Bartman, a middle aged human male, compiled the entirety of Jace Lorr?s staff. It was a small staff compared to what some other Senators made use of, but it was more than adequate for Lorr. With a couple of droids thrown in the mix to take care of paper work and logistics, there was no pressing need for any other staff.

    Jace was about to address the young intern when his secure comm link began to chime at him. He activated his private ear piece to listen, answering ?this is Senator Jace Lorr.? He said nothing further after that opening statement for five minutes, as he listened intently to the person on the other end of the transmission. Finally, his turn to speak came again.

    ?Yes, I do enjoy the new ship,? he said very enthusiastically, his nostrils flaring a bit as he spoke and his eyes bulging slightly. This was followed by another pause in his speaking as he listened, before finally replying.

    ?Yes, I know who obtained this ship for me. And I?m quite grateful.?

    Another bit of silence, this one shorter than the first but slightly longer than the second. Finally, Jace Lorr responded with passion in his voice.

    ?I can assure you, friend, that your interests will be served in the Senate this session and your partnership will be fruitful to both of us. I think you?ll be pleasantly surprised by how much you will gain through this. Now, I will need to end this call, so I can address the masses here on Mon Calamari. I must see to it that I am serving my people first after all. But let me again emphasize, you have nothing to worry about.?

    With that, Senator Lorr ended the transmission and smiled at the two members of his staff sitting opposite him. He looked at young Tak Janz and addressed him specifically.

    ?The downside of politics, sometimes, is the games we must play behind closed doors. The trick, I believe, to find the upside in all things. They won?t teach you that in your poly sci classes at the Academy, but you?ll learn it in life?s service after your four-year commitment to the Navy is up, I?m sure. Now, if my chrono is correct, we should be landing in about three minutes, which means I need to focus in on my speech.?

    Having finished addressing them, Lorr stood up and walked towards a private chamber. The door shut behind him, leaving Janz and Azzantey to themselves. Inside, Lorr pulled up his datapad, and pulled up the file with his notes and outline for his speech. He gave a couple of self-reassuring hums and nods as he went through them. Confident in his speech, he gave a look in a mirror at his figure, dressed in a brand new Mon Calamari Naval Uniform. He still took pride in putting the uniform on, even though he?d bulged quite a bit from his active service days. He also enjoyed addressing his fellow planetary citizens while wearing it. It gave him a sense of honor, pride, and camaraderie with those with whom he was speaking. And that made him all the more bold and empowered. And a cycle was created, as his pride and honor created more confidence, which raised the crowd level, causing more pride and honor.

    He set to leave when a slight beep came from his datapad, indicating a new message. He pulled the datapad to read it and no

    "Please, please. My fellow senator, we are equals here. We are not in the session just now. If it is alright with you, casual conversation will be fine. Now, how can I help you?" came Tarim's reply. Choran stifled a chuckle; this man would be pleseant to work with, should the smile on his face and joyful attitude not be a facade. Whether it was or wasn't was of no importance; this man would be helpful.

    Choran leaned forward in his chair and spoke. "Yes. Well then... I have a proposal for you. I understand we meet eye-to-eye on an important issue; the Strengthening of New Republic Military Forces. However, we both know that S.R. 1 offers military armaments to the Imperial Remnant, and this ties in heavily to that one issue, possibly even every forthcoming galaxy-spanning event, as well... so, I must ask; what is your stance on the issue? I assure you, this is more important than you might know."

    Choran leaned back in his chair. He was sure that no matter the Senator's answer, he could turn this influential man into a powerful ally. No doubt about it.

    Azervado smiled as he took a seat across from the older senator. "Pretty much, I've never been to Coruscant prior to my arrival here a week ago. I wished to become aquainted with my surroundings before the session starts."
    Azervado noticed the waitress waiting for the moment next to the table. He turned to her for the moment saying, "Teridan nerf stew and a light nectarcrest salad for me, thanks. Oh, and a glass of Zhressar's blue spring wine if you have any."

    As she left he gave her a friendly smile before turning back to Reldem Fald. "By chance have you heard of a new education bill my good friend Senator Tak Vedis has been working on?" His datapad beeped and he opened it and seeing who it was from he began typing one handed while facing towards his fellow Senator.

    To: Senator Tak Vedis, Senator of Naboo
    From: Senator Azervado Renning, Senator of Anaxes

    Message:
    That is good, I will see you when you arrive then. As to my homeworld when I was was there a week ago all was well, and I would assume it remains. Safe travels friend.

    Sincerely,
    Azervado Renning, Senator of Anaxes

    "Yes. Well then... I have a proposal for you. I understand we meet eye-to-eye on an important issue; the Strengthening of New Republic Military Forces. However, we both know that S.R. 1 offers military armaments to the Imperial Remnant, and this ties in heavily to that one issue, possibly even every forthcoming galaxy-spanning event, as well... so, I must ask; what is your stance on the issue? I assure you, this is more important than you might know."


    Tarim leaned back in his chair as he heard the senator's response. The smile still lingered on his face, though his expression became much more serious. "Well, Choran, that is an easy enough question to answer. I am against the sale. While it may strain relations with the Remnant, the consequences will be far worse than if we do sell to them. I have nothing against the Remnant. What's done is done. I will forgive, but not forget. We needn't be opening ourselves to the past once more. Now, back to the real question. What is it you want of me in particular? While surely you seem like a nice enough person, I doubt you called simply to know my stance on this issue." Tarim kept his words friendly and conversational. He glanced down almost imperceptibly as he noticed a blinking light on his comm unit. His previous transmission had been received and he quickly read the reply, then stored it away for a future time.

I have nothing against the Remnant. What's done is done. I will forgive, but not forget. We needn't be opening ourselves to the past once more. Now, back to the real question. What is it you want of me in particular? While surely you seem like a nice enough person, I doubt you called simply to know my stance on this issue," came the Senator' reply. While that was not the answer Choran had hoped for, he had already formed a backup plan.

    "Hm... Well, let it not be said that you aren't wise. But, you see, it all ties in to the grand scheme of things. I have several very trustworthy sources confirming the Remnant's reports; I took the initiative, ahead of the NRI men. However, it seems, that is a discussion for another time. Here, today, I ask for not only your support for, but your digi-signature, on a Senate proposal to strengthen the New Republic Military and-" Suddenly a green light lit up on his control panel and Choran faltered mid-sentence; his conversation was being listened in on by outside sources.

    "I'm sorry, Senator, but we need to finish our discussion later on a secure channel. I'm sorry."

    At that, he cut the communcation before his file recordings could be hacked. This was bad. Real bad.

    IC: Ar?Jar Vena

    Ar?Jar chuckled at Jaster?s sleepy tone, and watched the giant cityscape of Coruscant get steadily larger as the Starfury approached. He could see the great Senate building from this high up, the thought of the return to the bustling life of the Senate, after the week of a relatively calm Thyferra, was somewhat depressing. ?We shall persevere.? Ar?Jar said to himself under his breath.

    As Coruscant swallowed his ship up, Ar?Jar?s datapad vibrated, indicating a new message. Ar?Jar looked at the title, and after noting the subject matter was on thrilling the ?Women of your dreams with your lightsaber? moved the message into the spam folder. The Galactic Republic had stood for 25,000 years, the Empire had stood for 50, and the New Republic was rapidly approaching the ripe old age of 25, yet there was no definitive way to eliminate spam mail.

    Jaster had completed the descent now, and was negotiating docking rights. Ar?Jar listened half-heartedly, leaning back in his chair, with his feet resting on the ship?s control board. He clasped his hands behind his head, closed his eyes, and sighed, as he heard the conversation.

    "Coruscant port, on behalf of Senator Ar'Jar Vena, this is Starfury requesting permission to land."

    "Copy that, Starfury, you are set to land in Docking Bay Seventeen."


    As Jaster began the notoriously difficult task of landing the ship in the Planet?s busiest spaceport, Ar?Jar?s pad vibrated in his pocket once more. Ar?Jar sighed, preparing to delete more spam, when he noticed that the message was from Senator Yubari. ?Now there?s a name I have not heard in a long time.? He said to the ship in general, and quickly read the message, before replying.

    Ar'Jar,

    Just seen you docked.
    If you're free we should lunch.
    I can book us a table at Ximino's.
    Look forward to seeing you.

    Maya.


    Maya,

    I would love for us to have lunch.
    Can you book us a table for a late afternoon lunch? Say 2/3 PMish?
    I have a small amount of business that needs attending to beforehand,
    Looking forward to hearing back from you,

    Ar?Jar

    He re-read the message before double tapping the Send button, then preceded to get back to his comfortable position once more. As he heard and felt the ship land in the Docking Bay, Ar?Jar opened his eyes. ?So who were you dreaming about this time?? He asked Jaster. ?What did she look like? And more importantly what?s her number and is she going to be someone you run into in a Cantina, whilst I am going about my business?? Ar?Jar contemplated the questions for a moment, before asking another. ?Assuming you do not want to come to see me do some backstabbing, lying, and other politician stuff.?

    IC - Tak Vedis
    unregistered transport - somewhere in hyperspace

    As the newly elected Senator waited in line for some nondescript grub somewhat resembling food, his faithful - if homicidal - droid, designation HL-40, tapped him on the shoulder, stirring him from his music. The droid had been following him around in some almost Wookie-like loyalty for some time, acting as both aide and bodyguard - whether or not Tak approved.

    "What is it, HL?" Tak asked, taking the earplugs out, rock music blaring.

    "Comment: Your carry on bag is making many amusing sounds. Extrapolation: It may be a threatening incoming message from some meatbag who needs to be terminated with all possible speed, Master."

    Tak rolled his eyes and shook his head. "Stellar. Look, HL, I don't want you armed when we deal with the other Senators; I find your enthusiasm to be... quite disturbing."

    "Comment: You really know how to hurt a droid, Master."

    Grabbing one final piece of fruit, Tak handed some credit chits to the droid at the end of the line and walked over toward his seat, HL taking up the rear, scanning the general vicinity, his servos at the ready.

    Sinking into the comfortable folds of his seat once more, Tak placed his tray on the fold down shelf and reached into his small bag. His datapad had indeed logged a new incoming message:

    To: Senator Tak Vedis, Senator of Naboo
    From: Senator Azervado Renning, Senator of Anaxes

    Message:
    That is good, I will see you when you arrive then. As to my homeworld when I was was there a week ago all was well, and I would assume it remains. Safe travels friend.

    Sincerely,
    Azervado Renning, Senator of Anaxes


    Tak smiled at the pleasant news; at least he had one ally in the Senate. He worried that overstepping his bounds could be catastrophic, and making 'friends' amongst a sea of sabersharks dressed in fine linens would be an impossibility.

    Azervado and Tak had met on Anaxes many years ago, though it was more accurate to say that Tak's father, the senior Tak Vedis, had taken an interest in the young Azervado, speaking personally to the President of the Anaxes School of Law, that later accepted the young man. The Tak family kept a close eye on the young man with a promising future.

    The current Senator from Naboo met Azervado when he served as a lawyer, quickly striking up a close friendship that bordered on an almost familial relationship.

    Tak quickly typed out another message.

    To: Azervado Renning, Senator of Anaxes
    From: Tak

    My friend,

    I look forward to some pleasant conversation at Ximino's.

    Yours faithful friend,
    Tak


    Tak put down his pad, picked up a spoon and dug into his meal of - well, gruel. HL-40 stood beside the seat, intimidating onlookers with his fiery optical sensors.

    Senator Nava Kree
    Ximino's Restaurant

    Nava took her time, looking around the resturant as she tried to decide on a meal. The place was quite interesting. Nava could pick out a few Senators sitting about. She had done quite a bit of studying, at Pol's suggestion, so that she could recognize some faces.

    Senator Kell, Senator ..uh..Oracio, yes, that was it. There were a few others who's faces she recognized, but could not immidately call the name to mind. She then look at the view around her. This place was HUGE. Everything in it was huge. And they were sooo high up...

    Nava concentrated back on her menu. A few moments later, a waitress came over, to take orders. Nava wondered if her 'shadow' was going to eat now..or wait. But she didnt think about it too long.

    "I'll have tarna juice to drink. And I would like to try this.." she tapped at her menu. "The..Aldurian Greens dish." Nava had alcohol back in her quarters. She could wait. She then sat back, curious to see if her guard was going to order anything or not.

    "An excellent choice," said Sanomar, discreetly moving back a pace or two as Senator Kell answered a message on his datapad. The Trianii whispered the appropriate orders into his comm and turned smoothly back to the Senator. "I'm surre we'll have something to suit yourr taste this evening, Senatorr," he continued. "I'll see that one of the girrls comes to you dirrectly." Sanomar bowed and moved off towards the bar area.

    Across the room, Jamina regarded Senator Oracio evenly before rising and moving off with that foot-in-front-of-foot walk that looked so good to watch as she left. A few minutes later, she returned with a small flimsi document, and again made a performance of a catlike bending over the table to place the document in front of the Senator. "This is the information you asked for," she breathed into his ear, before straightening again and removing a datapad from her chest pocket. "And what may I order for you, Senator?"

    IC: Jayson Bryce
    Penthouse Suite -- 500 Republica

    It was maybe a half hour before Jayson was ready to leave. He was dressed and shaved, wearing a casual black suit and a gray shirt with no tie. He boots were polished as ever, thanks to J-1. He sported a pair of designer sunglasses, an over sized aviator style with mirrored lenses, and his gold Corlex watch glistened on his wrist. His shoulder harness and suspenders were left on his dresser however, instead a hold out blaster was tucked discretely into the small of his back. Jayson had the ability to dress-to-impress no matter how he ill he looked. The slightest bit of make up gave his face that sunny glow it usually had, to cover the pale look a hang over usually brought.

    By this time, Deb, at a sizable expense to Jayson's personal accounts, had procured the Air-limo to his specifications. It's cost was nothing to him, not only did it barely chink his personal Net Worth but it was a huge tax deduction. She stood next to J-1 as Bryce exited his room, J-1 sporting the new Chauffeur's hat which had been purchased to match the new speeder. Bryce liked to ride in style, and this didn't hide that.

    "Ready Sire?" J-1 asked in his overly pompous vocalization.
    "As I'll ever be I supposed." Bryce replied with a weary nod as he exited the building and entered the back of the limo.

    It wasn't long before they were at Ximino's with J-1 at the helm. The limo pulled up to the front of the restaurant and let Bryce exit before J-1 parked the vehicle in one of the larger skydocks. Bryce entered with his usual cheery air, a show for anyone watching, and stepped up to the maître d', awaiting to be seated.

    "Top of the morning." He said in a falsely chipper voice...

    Despite all of his reserve and poise as a maitre 'd at some of the galaxy's top hotels and restaurants, at Senator Bryce's comment Max Taribi couldn't resist the temptation.

    He glanced at his chrono. "That it is, sir. For another ten minutes, at least." he said to the hungover Senator standing before him. The maitre d' softened his voice a little; it was clear Senator Bryce's eardrums were rattling like Arquillian battle gongs at this moment. "Welcome back to Ximino's, Senator Bryce. I've arranged a table in the back for you. Not your usual, I'm afraid, but much quieter than out on the balcony. I can arrange for some very soft jizz to be piped in through the speakers if you wish it, sir. Meanwhile, Jilenna will be looking after your order this evening.

    Taribi indicated a youngish Twi'lek girl standing a step or two away, who smiled in the proper sympathetic way, and gestured for Jayson Bryce to follow her through the restaurant towards the kinrath suite they'd prepared earlier.
