This is dangerous for my intention, because I'm trying to jumpstart my writing habits again, but next week there's a lot of call for extra hours at work and I could use the extra money, so I'll probably put a pause on this for the next week. Just so people know what's up. Not that I have that many readers, if any, right now.

Kirsten looked over her shoulder but could see no one. It wasn't the first time she'd thought she'd heard whispers on the wind. But this was the first time she'd heard a discernible word. Her jaw clinched and sucked in a breath past her teeth waiting. But the whispering did not continue and slowly she relaxed.
Suddenly the pressure of the grey sky seemed so much heavier than it had before. She looked down instead, out over the forest.The trees stood rustling in the wind that was now dwindling. The nearby forest was thin and easy to walk or ride through, but the thick and ancient core of the forest was visible from the tower. The barren, rocky coast was harder to survey. Most of it was obscured by the cliffs rising out of the ocean.

Kirsten looked back towards the ship and saw the sailors hauling the limp form of the captain out of the wreck of the ship. She tapped Seona on the shoulder and pointed to the sight. The older woman nodded and hurried down the beach as they were bringing the insensate figure to a place far from both the wreck and the piles of still twitching body parts.
"I was wondering where he was," Seona muttered. As she leaned down she sniffed and then shook her head. "Well, looks like someone can't handle their liquor."
The First Mate nodded. "Captain likes to have bit of mead when he's not on duty, but doesn't usually overindulge."

Lightning struck out across the sky, branching out along the clouds like the roots of a tree followed by a peeling roar of thunder. Kirsten stumbled up the wet stairs and gripped at the railing. Looking about she could see the waves rolling high alongside of the ship. A flash stretched down from the sky and slammed into the water alongside of the ship, Kirsten rose a hand up to shield her eyes from the sudden flush of light.
"I think you'd be better served below decks!" the First Mate shouted loudly.

"There is still time to change your mind, Kirsten." The speaker stepped quickly and deflected a rapierto the side of her. Her manner was casual and easy as she prodded her opponent's defenses. "There is no lack of demand for Eisen bodyguards."
The younger woman focused nearly silently, breathing heavily and blowing a strand of blonde hair out of her face. The blonde's rapier flashed. Her opponent leaned back lightly and let the blade slip past before rotating on her heel bringing the butt of her dagger to blonde's back and sent the blonde stumbling ahead off balance. She whipped about with a wild lunge which was parried easily while the tip of a dagger touched to her shoulder.

Piracy in the sector goes beyond the ability of the station to control and raises hostility among the foreign governments for the UTSNS's inability to protect their merchants. Offers of aid in securing the sector prompt immediate concern (terror) in everybody and Captain Sekai immediately calls for aid. Rumors fly about the station about aliens threatening to take over the sector. Information that the pirates have a carrier that was supposed to have been mothballed by the Terran navy is made public. Consulate row gets angry. A new bill is put to the Terran government that rises more ire. A UTSNS patrol group and a Yapathi escort group appear close on top of each other and the station raising tensions. A riot breaks out on the station fueled by hacker encouragement until it is defused. The riot disperses but the ship standoff continues...and then a Yax colony ship appears.
