Day 1: Outside the Ship at 4:00 PM  
Where: The hallways

When: Day 1, 4:00 PM

Who: All



Seren made his way through the unfamiliar hallways. He had been able to get what looked like more than enough personal supplies and even had enough left over for a small bag of sweets, one of which he was chewing happily as he headed for his room. As he walked, he referred to the map, making note of useful areas of the ship along his way.

As Andrej walked about the first level of the Penetrator, he was careful to study his map every time he ventured down a new hallway. If he did end up cleaning, he presumed by how the ship looked from the outside that he would have a lot of work to do. Andrej looked for little details on the walls to help him recognize places and marked them on his map with the pen he had in his pocket. He was too busy scribbling on it to notice as he drew near to another man, nearly bumping into him before he lifted his head. "Whoops, sorry. I didn't see you. I'll be more careful next time." He smiled a little.

Seren turned to look at the person who had just run into him. From the fact that the person looked just about the same age as he was (though slightly taller than Seren), he guessed this was another new hire.

"Hey, no big," Seren said with a friendly smile. "Is this your first time going off-planet, too?"
andrej_milholanandrej_milholan on July 24th, 2006 01:05 am (UTC)
"Yup. It's a bit of a relief actually... I've got some problems at home." He shrugged, physically saying it was no big deal (even though it was a bit of a lie). "Do you have any idea what it's going to be like?"

Seren chuckled. "No--t a clue," he admitted. "But let me tell you, anything's better than what I'm leaving behind. At least I'm guaranteed a dry place to sleep, and there's a galley listed on the map, so I won't be hunting for handouts." Despite his words, Seren's lean build didn't look like it was from any lack of food.

"As far as I'm concerned, this ship is my new home. At least, if I'm ALLOWED to look at it that way." He laughed a little as he said it. "Anyway, I don't suppose I could get away with bumping into you and not introducing myself. I'm Andrej Milholan. I'm from Norway, but I guess it doesn't matter where anybody's from in space." Hey, he thought, that's almost philosophic of me.

"That's a good way of looking at things," Seren said. "My name's Seren Marelac, and me - well, I'm from nowhere and everywhere for the last 5 years. Home is where I feel safe, and Gigival is definitely not home anymore."

"Sounds like you're glad as I am to be here. Hey, is it really true that here aren't any women on this ship? That'd be really great, for me..." Andrej's greatest fear was women; a phobia that probably stemmed from his overbearing and borderline abusive mother, as well as other family matriarchs.
seren_marelacseren_marelac on July 24th, 2006 02:08 am (UTC)
"Well, as far as I know, you, me, the Captain and Mr. Morning are the only crew so far. The ad I saw was looking specifically for young men, so..." Seren shrugged. "I tell ya, though, you won't hear me complain if I don't see any. Nothing but trouble all around."
andrej_milholanandrej_milholan on July 24th, 2006 02:17 am (UTC)
"I agree. And slavedrivers also." He shuddered a little. "I've never had any sort of fondness for girls..."
seren_marelacseren_marelac on July 24th, 2006 02:27 am (UTC)
Seren started counting off incidents on his fingers. "Let's see, my mother kicked me out of the house when I was thirteen, because she couldn't afford to keep me *and* my sisters. She figured a boy could fend for himself. Then there was Madam Morus - yeah, she took me in, but once I was 'old enough', she just wanted to use me to keep her 'ladies' happy - ugh! That's when I ended up completely on the streets."
andrej_milholanandrej_milholan on July 24th, 2006 02:32 am (UTC)
"My mom wasn't exactly the nicest lady in the world either. So go us, we won't have to deal with women for however long we're here. What a relief!" He smiled jauntly.
seren_marelacseren_marelac on July 24th, 2006 02:46 am (UTC)
"No women, no Black Ki-Rins - As long as there's work for me, I'll be happy. What kind of position were you hired for?"

[^^ thanks. i was wondering about that.]

"Black what? And I'm not exactly sure, Mr. Morningstar wasn't clear about it. I did volunteer for basically being a janitor, though, so that's probably what I'll end up as."
seren_marelacseren_marelac on July 24th, 2006 02:56 am (UTC)
"The Black Ki-Rins... They're this gang that I kinda ticked off without meaning to. Sorta makes staying Earthside look real short and real painful. I'm no fighter, so this was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. Mr. Morning said I'd probably have a bunch of duties, depending on what was needed."
andrej_milholanandrej_milholan on July 24th, 2006 02:58 am (UTC)
"Oh, okay. Oh yeah, if I get pissy about cleaning then don't take it personally... I can obsess sometimes." He laughed a little. "Anyway, we should probably bothe get to our cabins."
seren_marelacseren_marelac on July 24th, 2006 03:00 am (UTC)
Seren chuckled. "Yeah - hey, I'll see you around." He checked his copy of the map again and headed off in the direction of his room.
