"Rojo, are you coming to lunch with us? It might be interesting, and I would be interested in your opinion."
To Zhenya, "If you can spare me a little longer, I was going to ask this nice lady if she wanted to show me around some today..."
Smiles at Nadya. :)

"What do you think, do you have time to show me some sites today?"

Nadya regards Zhenya coolly. "Vy zaraz svyati? Navitʹ Olʹha spalyla misto na zemlyu." She stands, and lets Elton take her hand, "Let us go to the beach, there is a wall, shaded by trees where people gather, and we can drink."

OOC: I obviously didn't make clear that was a thought, not out loud ( Zhenya would never insult a new acquaintance so openly, I just couldn't let the joke pass by without making it ).

Ok, my mistake then. If Elton is off with Nadya, then Zhenya and Cal are meeting with Huli; Rojo, Leon? What are you doing?

Huli is where she says she will be at the appointed time. She is dressed plainly, hair in a bun, no makeup.

Zhenya changes into a new white suit, places a bug in the lining of the jacket's lapel, and uses some cosmetics to look less like a recovering casualty.

Meeting Calson before joining Huli:

"So, how shall we handle our journalist? I am hoping she may have some knowledge of the Yerkes Creek area, and the forces there. Or at least contacts who can find out. Perhaps she has a less dramatic way of reaching the target than our current plan. If we offer her a ride-along on the strike, perhaps she will be helpful. I am hoping to use her to get our a version of the INI Iridium plot out. She can do more harm with that story than we can. Offering the prospect of it might reel her in."

Calson pauses to think about what Zhenya has said. "If Huli can get us an advantage, fine, we still need to have a plan. So I agree, using the Leshy with a fake engine failure looks like the best shot of covering 800k and closing with the target, can Huli help us? We will see".

Huli arrives at lunch, dressed as before, ordering a double espresso she asks, "To what do I owe this pleasure?" Of Cal and Zhenya.

"Your continuing good work. As a journalist of integrity. This is a rare thing, a teller of uncomfortable truths with a platform to speak."

Zhenya sips a fruit juice.

"I remember your reporting in the war, its fairness. It is a pleasure to have the chance to speak with you, to thank you."

"Of course, there is more to it than that. Let us be open, while I do respect your work and think it would be interesting to speak, I also wish to find out if we get along well enough to help each other. I would not waste your time or mine otherwise."

Looking for a menu:

"So, shall we eat together, and talk, while we judge one another?"

"Fascinating." Huli comments, resting her chin on her fist as she sips the espresso and listens. "You must have been a diplomat at one time, what brought the fall from grace?" Appearing both rapt and sympathetic. "Yes, order what you like." When lunch is mentioned, signalling a waiter, and after they appear, she orders a sesame-tofu Thai salad.

Zhenya is pleased not to be recognised. This will make things easier.

"Very good, I did have a minor position in the Diplomatic Corps, a long time ago. I did not 'fall from grace' though. I... took a position with more responsibility, shall we say."

Zhenya asks for a fish Okroshka, as the chef seems to know Slavic cuisine.

"Your work was mainly from the Imperial side, yes? I had a... broader perspective. I believe you have now, too?"

The food arrives.

"Republic." Adding between delicate forks of purple cabbage, "As persona non grata, as there I actually made the news, I have had a falling out with the Imperium. Broader perspectives, yes, you crew a spacecraft, interstellar, adventurers? I take it you are no fan of the Imperium, I have a job that may interest you."
