View character profile for: Richard Schamp
Richard slowly drank his beer in a local dive. It was the last night before he became a Spacestronaut. Unfortunately, his choice was a mistake. Half way through his drink several strangers at a table noticed him. They approached him and one began to speak; " come join us for a drink. "
Richard; " No thanks, I am allowing myself one drink before I become a spacestronaut. " The room suddenly became quiet.
That was a mistake. The strangers rose from the table and began to circle him. " You're too good to drink with us!!! " As he finished the last word, Richard threw the rest of his drink in the face of the speaker. With his next move he immediately throat punch the biggest stranger.
With that he left a tip for the bartender and walked out.
The next day he gave his papers at his ship. Except for some strange looks and whispers from the other spacestronauts nothing happened.
