|“Tai Chi Morning,” said the spindly large headed creature that perched in the dank corner of the smoke filled bar between slurps of the thick pink concoction it was holding.
“I‘m not sure what that means, So I‘ll just assume your saying hello,” shot back the purple haired girl as she sat down opposite the creature with her lanky hooded friend.
“Heavenly seas and fragrant passings to you too, Gl’u oat-cha,” replied her associate as he removed his hood to reveal short bleach blonde hair that contrasted his decidedly Asian features. Then he continued, “ Show some respect Glitch. After all we need Gl’u’s help if we’re going to get the information we want.”
“ I want Daryl, not we. Just because I let you cop a feel now and again and it’s convenient that you work in Squid-town doesn’t mean that we’re partners in this. I can’t let you get involved, you’re liable to get killed. Besides, we’re paying this overgrown cockroach more than enough credits to smooth over any hurt feelings,” she retorted placing her gun and a sack of credits on the table before she continued. “Isn’t that right Glue or whatever your name is.”
“Melodious interactions, and Graphite resolve, “ squawked the weird alien cross between a squid and cockroach they had had come to bargain with. “ This one has no needs except simple ones,” it said as a tentacle shot out from it and deftly grabbed the bag. “ Tangerine wisdom and expansive blossoms,” it finished as another tentacle replaced the bag with a small crystal information cube.
Glitch quickly pocketed the cube and then responded, “ Just so we’re straight Oozy. This had better be the access codes I need for Intertech or I’m going to come back and feed each one of those tentacles into whatever your people use for waste elimination.Got me?”
“Conforming triangles,” the creature squawked back nervously before taking a final huge gulp of it’s pink drink and skittering off into the depths of the packed bar.
“Good,” said Glitch standing up and motioning to her friend. “ Come on Daryl let’s get out of here, I’ve got big plans for tomorrow evening.
