(Blue Dwarf) Frank Harris 'A deal's a deal'
Jackson sat in Harris' chair at Harris' desk going through some of the paperwork
that had piled in the tray marked IN, they were mainly a few complaints about
some of the security officers and a few cases of theft.
"Harris to Jackson." Came over the com.
"Yes Major Harris, sir?" Jackson replied.
"I want that mercenary in the brig ready for transport." Harris ordered.
"May I ask why, Major Harris sir?" Jackson enquired.
"Trading him for some important information." Harris answered. "And bring that
weasel Lenny Ming along with you, I'm trading him as well."

Harris met up with Jackson in an empty section of the facility, the sergeant had
done as he was ordered and brought along the mercenary and Lenny Ming.
Ming watched the Major nervously, dreading what he might do.
The four head the sounds of footsteps and then Davina appeared.
"Where's Nester?" Harris enquired.
"Puking his guts out." Davina answered. "You've sobered up quickly."
"Got the information?" Harris demanded, trying his best to ignore the pounding
in his head.
"Yes." The female mercenary answered, removing a disk from within her coat and

"You were down this creature's throat?" Febuggure asked.
"So what if I was." Donover told Febuggure. It was bad enough having to work
for one of the most infamous security officers in the JMC but he had to put up
with this as well!
"Must have been interesting." Febuggure said.
"Interesting!" Donover snapped. "Ever since I joined the JMC I have seen my

"I bet there's people out there that wants a life as interesting as yours."
Febuggure told the Ensign.
"They can have it!" Donover told Febuggure. "Now if you would excuse me I have
