A long-expected party! Yes, at long last, it is finally time for Doc Chambers' fundraiser gala to support the Meredine Clinic. And at least so far, nothing has blown up! Huzzah! (Of course, we all know it's only a matter of time...)

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter VI: How to Craft a Diamond Ring

Step 1: Choose your gemstones
The raw stones should be considered with care. While some jewelers would argue that having a selection of pre-cut stones eases the process of creating finished pieces, using rough stones allows for the greatest degree of flexibility and customization. When choosing an even number of stones for a single piece, it is best if they are of approximately the same size, shape, and composition.

The four women, two younger and two older, stood in Miss Julie’s private office overlooking the Lucky Shot casino floor. “I thought you were coming with me,” Lyta said, almost plaintively, to Ellen Cranby.

Ellen laughed. “Lyta, honey, pamperin’ ain’t really my thing. But Miss Julie, she kindly pulled in a few favors and got it all settled for you.”

So close, and yet so far! Instead of wining and dining at the gala fundraiser like we'd hoped, this week saw Our Heroes (tm) crawling through underground tunnels to meet with an excessively dangerous arms dealer. Because that's way more exciting than benefit dinner speeches, right?

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter VI: Stepping Out of the Wings

15 Summer, 1926

31:00 hours

Lyta watched the big black man across the table from them. He was huge, almost as big as a GREL, and from what Billy Croyden had said, he had enough military experience that he could probably use his fists to maximum effect. He seemed polite enough for now – no threats, no ‘accidental’ revelations of weapons – but in a place like the Hammer, that could change in an instant.

Lyta sized him up while Lukas talked. It would be hard if she had to fight him. He’d be strong, and he’d be mean. Even in a fist-fight, he could probably do some serious damage, even through her flak. The way she saw it, she only had three main advantages over him: First, she’d be faster. Big guys were generally slow, and that would give her a chance to get inside his guard or jump behind him before he could grab her. Second, she had a lower center of gravity. If she could throw him or trip him, she might be able to get in some decent shots to a kneecap or elbow or – if he decided to escalate – to his head. And third, he probably wouldn’t see it coming.

Koreshi Chronicles - Chapter VI: All Shook Up

15 Summer, 1926

“Lyta, honey, are you going to tell me what happened, or are you just gonna scowl for the next two hours?”

Lyta tore her eyes away from the window and the speeding landscape. Ellen Cranby had already finished her cawfee, while Lyta’s remained practically untouched. She blinked a few times, trying to gather her thoughts. “Sorry.”

Ellen sighed. “No need to be sorry. But was it really that bad? You looked like you were enjoyin’ yourself.”

Lyta had spent the whole of the train ride north in a similar lounge, sitting across a tiny table from Alain Vulpei, laughing and talking. She had missed seeing him in person, she’d realized. He hadn’t been joking when he said he could practically read her mind when they were face-to-face. It was just a shame he’d ruined the whole thing in the last ten minutes.


My goodness! Did we really just manage to get through an entire session without anyone shooting at us? I think we did! How novel! I'm sure it won't last.
