    The back of his head pounded as he woke up. Pain throbbed in the back of his head. Around him the world swam as he lifted his head slowly. "Ugh what the fuck happened?" Michael found that he couldn't move. He was tied to a chair and placed in a small empty room. "Alright!" He winced as he yelled, headache from the blow he took. "Ok what is going on here?"

    A door in front of him slid open. Someone walked in wearing armor. Dark gray plates and head covered in a helmet. Behind him was another man wearing a much nicer outfit. Dark blond hair styled and swept nicely to the side. "You are Xander Thrust correct?" He was holding Michael's fake ID in his hand.

    Michael nodded. "Yeah. You're holding my identification aren't you?"

    "Yes, yes I am. Well Xander you may call me Thresh." Michael watched him as he moved across the room. "But I think you're lying."

    "And what reason would I have to lie?" Michael asked, trying to prolong the inevitable.

    "This is good, really good, but a fake none the less." Thresh tossed the ID aside, as if it was trash. "You see we saw you meeting with Korban earlier."

    "He's a chill guy. Great racer. I'd like to think we became best buds. BFFs. Maybe we'll get matching charm bracelets." Thresh slapped Michael across the face to silence his rambling.

    "My employers trust no one, you see. They have eyes on everyone. And Korban meeting three strangers? A little suspect." Thresh moved behind Michael, placing his hands on his shoulders. "What do you think? I can tell you love making comments."

    "Oh maybe it's an affair? Is he married?" Michael smirked.

    Michael didn't see Thresh nod but the guard did. Moving out of Michael's sight the guard grabbed a bucket and threw it's contents onto Michael, leaving him very damp. "You're very clever." The hands left his shoulder's and the man in black armor now stood next to him, holding to metal rods. "It's annoying. We'll get something out of you, though I'm sure there will many snide comments to get through first." With another nod the guard touched the rods to Michael's chest. Michael yelled in pain as his body was shocked. "Even if you don't tell us anything, maybe hearing your torment will make your girlfriend tell us something."

    The two women watching them soon were replaced by two men who didn't focus on her which Ashira was glad for until they started attacking him. They were trying to get information from him but he was resisting them. One of the men mentioned that it was only a matter of time before Ashira broke and they were right. “We are here to ask Korban watch someone we don't want following us. The Yoran government is after us and this person would tell them where we are.” Ashira said, knowing it wasn't a good idea to tell the truth but she couldn't let Micheal be tortured.

    Thresh looked over to her and laughed, “You expect us to believe that?” He said, moving towards Ashira and back handing her. He was about to raise his hand to hit her again but the door to the room opened up and a man walked in shaking his head.

    “Ah I hoped I would get here before my sister's goons.” He said, walking over to Thresh and pushing him away from Ashira. “No way to treat a woman but then what would an animal like you know?” He leaned down and looked at Ashira, her lip was swollen and bleeding from where she had just been struck. “Rue, I thought I said they weren't to be touched before I arrived?”

    “Lionel, we didn't touch them. I can't speak for dumb and dumber.” The woman who had been playing with the coin said.

    “You could have at least attempted to stop them. Good help is so hard to find.” Lionel said, reaching into his pocket and pulling out a silk handkerchief, dabbing it at Ashira's lip. He glanced over to Micheal briefly then focused back on Ashira seeming to not care about the pilot. “Now judging by their rough treatment you didn't answer Thresh's questions. You did remember to ask the questions this time didn't you?”

    "He should ask better questions." Michael droned out lowly, as if each syllable hurt to get out.

    Thresh's hand found it's way into Michael's short hair, gripping it hard causing him to wince. "This one has a bad habit of running his dumb mouth even in dire situations."

    "Your mom didn't think it was dumb last night." Thresh let go of Michael's hair. Only because Michael had earned himself another quick jolt in the side.

    Rue stood in front of Michael. "Your mother jokes? Really?" She turned to face Ashira. "What do you see in him darling? Surely a pretty girl like you could do so much better." Rue looked over her shoulder, expecting a snappy comeback or backhanded insult from the clever Arturian. But instead all she got was a string of bloody drool coming out of the side of his mouth. "Disgusting."

    "Thank you madam." Thresh bowed. "While he's out would you like me to search for hidden memory caches?" Hackers used body mods and epidermal tech to run data.

    "Do it." Lionel commanded.

    Michael's wrists were unbound and Thresh went to work taking Michael's top off. Rue raised an eyebrow. "Now I see why you like him."

    "We got a bandage here." Thresh turned Michael so his bandaged right arm was visible to everyone. The bandage that covered his Arturian tattoo. "Probably a recent implant job. I'll remove it."

    Thresh pulled the bandage off revealing the tattoo, “Huh an Arturian.” He said, looking down at Micheal.

    “So what?” Lionel said, “You act like you've never seen one before. There have to be at least five hundred on the station right now. Keep questioning him when he wakes up and try not to kill him.” He focused his attention back to Ashira and leaned down removing the bonds from her then holding his hand out for her. “Perhaps we could go somewhere more comfortable to continue this discussion?”

    Ashira didn't like the idea of leaving Michael alone with Thresh but Lionel seemed to be reasonable she might be able to clear all this up. Glancing over to Michael one more time she took his hand and stood up. “Hopefully we can clear up this misunderstanding.” Ashira said.

    Lionel nodded as he placed his hand on the small of Ashira's back leading her from the room. He paused in front of Rue who was tossing the coin into the air again. “Make sure the lug doesn't kill him.” Lionel said, catching the coin in mid air and putting it in his pocket. They walked through the building until they reached a lounge. The Lionel fixed a couple of drinks, offering one to Ashira before sitting down in a arm chair. He sat there with his drink in one hand and the coin in the other. He twirled the coin around in his fingers. “An art collector with an aristocratic Yoran lilt, traveling with an Arturian.” Lionel said, “That is the story we are sitting to?”

    “It isn't a story.” Ashira said, walking around the room looking at Lionel or rather the coin in his hand. That coin could ruin all of this, so far they seemed to be believing the story but that coin could unravel it all. She looked away from him fearing that she was looking too much at the coin instead focusing on the paintings on the wall. “The Arthurian is my security. He claimed that he was an expert of the region as it is known for not being controlled by either Arthuria or Yoran. Though it seems his services aren't that great.”

    She didn't notice Lionel walk up behind her until he placed his hand on her shoulder. “It is a Sergio Cartel.” Lionel said. “Are you familiar with his work? His paintings can go for billions of credits but then again as a art collector you know that.”

    Looking some more at the painting she realized why it was familiar to her. She had seen it before, well she had seen the original before. This was a fake, the real one was hanging in her uncle's office. She walked closer to the painting tracing her finger along the frame and looking closely at the piece. “It last sold at auction for 2 billion credits.” Ashira said.

    “2.5 billion actually, set me back quite a bit.” Lionel said, taking a sip of his drink, his boasting evident.

    “Shame it is a fake.” Ashira said, turning to Lionel who didn't seem all that shocked. She turned back to the painting pointing to the bottom right hand corner where the Sergio's signature was on the painting. “Sergio Cartel never signed the front of the painting usually he signed on the back in the upper right hand corner if he bothered to sign it at all. Not to mention the brush strokes show that whoever painted this was left handed. Sergio Cartel was right handed.” Years ago she would get so bored listening to her uncle drone on about his art collection. Now she was glad he had because she knew these little things to keep her cover.

    “Impressive. The forger I commissioned it from charged me 20 thousand credits. However after noticing the flaws and the forger wasn't quite as good as he claimed to be and a little creative negotiations we compromised at 7 thousand credits.” Lionel said, “While I certainly could afford the original it isn't on the market.”

    “What if I could procure you real thing?” Ashira said, thinking of a bluff hoping she could make this work and get them out of here.

    Lionel didn't get a chance to answer her as the door opened and a woman stepped in. “Lionel, this is where you ended up and with the pretty one.” Hannah said, walking over to them and stopping at Ashira's side. She reached out and brushed her finger across Ashira's split lip.

    “I saw her first.” Lionel said. The two of them staring off at each other like they were kids fighting over the same toy.

    “Maybe we should let her decide.” Hannah said, looking from her brother to Ashira. “Tell me pretty do you enjoy the company of men or women better?”

    “Depends on my mood.” Ashira said.

    “Very well would you rather be worshiped or do you like it rough?” Lionel said, his eyes still locked on his sister.

    “Again it depends on my mood.” Ashira said, wondering where they were going with this. It seemed to be some sort of game between the two. She didn't want to give either of them the upper hand so she stayed neutral.

    “Then maybe we should leave it up to chance.” Lionel said, holding the coin up. He flipped it into the air calling out tails.

    Before the he could catch the coin Ashira reached out and caught it, then quickly shoved it into her pocket finally taking that dreaded coin out of play. “I never mix business and pleasure. As I was saying how would you like to have the original?”

    "So why do you think he covered this up?" Michael heard voices and someone prodding his arm.

    "Probably some black ops stuff. Doesn't want any ties back to his government." Again he was prodded but this time on the other side.

    "Guess he's shit at his job then." A third voice spoke. Michael slowly blinked back into reality. Before him stood the man who was torturing him. "Welcome back to the land of the living."

    "Ugh I want to go back to sleep. I was having a great dream where I got to shot you in the face." Turning his head he spat, a bit of blood coming out. "Any chance a guy can get some water?" Painfully someone pulled his head back and squirted liquid into his mouth.

    "Enjoy the hospitality while you can Arturian." Thresh was looking down at him. "Once our boss is done with your friend it is only a matter of time before you're dragged out of here and put down like a dog."

    "If any of you hurt her I'll kill all of you." Michael fixed the grunts in the room with a harsh glare. As harsh as it could be tied to a chair. "Even if I'm dead I'll come back and haunt all of you till you off yourselves."
