I had Greek drive Bron & myself over to the cafe arriving at about 10.48 so we grabbed a table & ordered 2 Isco teas will we wait for Jack to show up,Jack seemed to have picked a very good time for this meeting, as while there was plenty of people in the cafe at this hour is wasn't busy enough yet that you couldn't get a table in a quite corner where you could talk without been overheard.
A couple of minutes later the door open & in walk Jack a accompanied by a woman, looking around him upon seeing Bron they both headed over to our table, after the necessities of introductions where made we all sat down & calling the waitress over ordered 3 more teas with Jack haven a refined water.
The woman with Jack, Lucinda Morte was in fact his 1st mate.
After the waitress had brought over our drinks & left Jack began the talks by saying you guys are good for the last 3 days I've been trying to find out something about you but all I could get was that ye turn up just after all the trouble started but no one seem to know much about you, which can only mean you guys are pro's.
One thing I did find out about was an insistent out at one of the factory the other night involving an inquisitor of an unusual size so seen you sitting here in front of me it not that hard to put the two facts together & know I'm dealing with the Inquisition.
Would that be a problem for you Jack I asked ? no he replied as long as we agreed on a few ground rules first, as I said to your friends the other night your business is your own & I don't need to know what it is but that will need to be a double edged sword Inquisitor if where to work together
We talked for about an hour in which time Jack told me that he put in the paperwork for permission to take off from the planet but with the chaos that was going on at the moment he'd no idea when he was likely to get clearance,
Informing Jack that I'd been on the look out for someone like him with his own ship for a long time, I asked him if we should get off this planet would he be interested in working for me on a regular bases, to which he replied yes but again there would be the need for ground rules as he made a lot of credits out of smuggling & wouldn't be willing to give that part of his business up.
Getting up to leave I handed Jack a little communicator & told him I be in touch with him in the next couple of days & that if got his clearances he could let me know using the device, I now had a decision to make with regard the guild master & decided on the way back to the safe house that I need to take him somewhere that I could interrogate him.
Not knowing when we might be able to get off I sent Bron & Augustine out to fine a suitable place the next day, Jack was a smart guy but if he could work out who we were so could others it was time to fined out what Le Farge knew.
As it turned out there was a arbite precinct not far from one of our safe houses that would suit our needs, so I got in touch with the commanding officer & made arrangements for us to use their facilities the next day.
I had Bron drive Greek, Rouxinel, Le Farge & myself to the precinct & then head off to link up with Panama Jack.
The precinct was a very old & well fortified building & housed a large number of PDF, but the way things where falling apart it would be unwise to lower our guard even is such a place.
As it turned out the interrogation rooms where on the upper floor of the two story building, so posting Greek & Rouxinel in the room at the bottom of the stairs I brought Le Farge up the stairs with me, as we entered the interrogation I could see the colour drain out of Le Farge's face.
Seen the look of fear on Le Farge as he looked around him at all the strange instruments I'd a feeling it wouldn't take long to get Le Farge to tell me what I wanted to know, but no sooner had I got him hooked up to the truth injectors when a massive explosion rocked the precinct.
I'd interrogated enough people in my time to know when someone is telling me the truth so I decided it might be as well off to leave the chip where it was until we got out of here.
I then got Le Farge to his feet & told him we where leaving & to stay close to me at all times if he wanted to live.
