Seikatsu chugged the first glass, and asked the captain "So now that the old girl's all fixed up, what'r we gonna do for a crew?"
Captain Scarlet chugged hers and replied "Ain't it obvious boy? We recruit more."
Seikatsu poured another glass of juice "Aye, *hic* an-and if'in we don't find nun?"
Scarlet drank hers "The I s'pose we walk the wenches to their buyer."
Another glass for Seikatsu "*hic* Think the others. D-do you *hic* think they'll make it?"
The captain poured herself another three glasses, and chugged them down. "*hic* they better."
The drinking and questioning went on through the night, and finally both barrels were empty."Sh-shay cot-who... y *hic* yoo gots gud dr- drinkun skyillz *hic*"
Captain Scarlet said."Th-thankshhh cap!"
Seikatsu replied."yoo nyot too bad yershelf..."
he added."Aye. But I-"
Sclarlet began saying and then started tipping over. Captain Scarlet used the table to keep herself upright while sitting in the chair."I wont loosh to *hiiic* any in... in..."
she couldn't think of the word."Inishi...I- Inishi... In..."
Seikatsu had it on the tip of his tongue.
Captain Scarlet never got a chance to finish her sentence, she passed out before that could happen. Seikatsu got up and gave a small chuckle 'hehehe. ahhh the power of alcohol.'
he said in his head.
Seikatsu went and took away all of Captain Scarlets weapons, and holsters, and even removed her boots for good measure. He then presented her with a gift of his own. A pair of the captured slaves handcuffs. He waited till morning and then checked his room to see what became of his roommates. All eight initiates were in the room, four on the floor not breathing, one of them on Seikatsu's bed not breathing, one of the veterans bed also not breathing, and his two roommates were dead on the bed, relieved of the pains of the hangover they would have had if they were breathing. Seikatsu, just to be safe, took one of the men's knives and cut all their throats. Seikatsu checked the wine kegs, and he was able to see the bottom.
Seikatsu went to the dock, and wiped the blood off his hands while letting the initiates take a long deserved bath. Something told Seikatsu, the smell of their own blood would actually be better than they smelled in general.
Seikatsu went to the guards outpost and told them where the slaves were held, and informed them that First Mate Carver was in the hold.
When the guards arrived, the slaves all broke out in tears when they saw the group of armored men. Seikatsu walked over, and started un-chaining them all. All except First Mate Carver, who began yelling 'traitor' at Seikatsu."Hold on guys!"
he shouted to the guards as they were taking carver away."I've betrayed people closer to me that you'll ever be. I am half of a human, and hold no loyalties to anyone. I didn't betray you, I deceived you. Learn the difference while you face your sentence."
Seikatsu said in a very cold, matter-of-fact way to Carver."You can take him away."
he told the guardsmen.
The guardsmen pulled Captain Scarlet, who was giving no resistance, from the ship and Seikatsu could hear her muttering something... but her voice was blurred by the entire keg of wine she drank last night."I knew you were a nice person."
The little girl said while holding onto Seikatsu's cloak."No. I'm not."
Seikatsu said, and then kneeled down to get at the child's eye level."Never trust a man, if he hides behind a cloak. People like me will almost always hurt you in the end."
he told her.
The little girl gave him a hug, and said "but you also do good things in the end."
Seikatsu felt a pain in his chest as the child was hugging him. He was remembering the first time he met his best friend. Seikatsu didn't react to the hug on the outside, the child let go and Seikatsu began making his way out of town, making sure to stop by his alchemy lab in the woods to reclaim the egg he buried there.
