Facepalming, Sash pulled off the large banana mask off Zolin's head. Even the banana mask smellsss like coconuts, baffling... he thought as he grabbed the Avian by the wrist and dragged him along into the bar. "Asss much as I don't like thessse places, leaving you ..." he stopped for a moment to think and continued "Un-re-gulated... isss worse. Jussst don't drink any of the ssstuff they serve, elderss have mercy on us else..."

Sis got herself a clean set of clothes, her halberd, armor, and packed her lucky charm (Anna's old pocket pistol, not functioning anymore)  and some supplies in a slightly worn backpack. She then locked her house and gave the key to her neighbor, as always, before walking back to the Starduster. Hopefully everyone would be ready to leave by now.

"Look like the robot is missing... ah well," Allen passes the whiskey shots to the others and Sass when he walks in, then raises his, "Here's hoping we don't get killed."

Sash blinked a few times while staring at the drink passed to him. He picked it up gently and eyed it for a few seconds before sniffing at it. A powerful smell of Whiskey assaulted his senses and made him stick his tongue out in disgust prompting him to quickly set the offending drink down on the table and pushed it away slightly. "I'll passs..."

Allen downed his shot as well, the fluid seemed to bypass the barrier holding in his gases and dissolve.

"Alright, shall we get movin' then?" Allen says as he stands up, handing one of the shots to Sis, he didn't seem to notice the Avian child.

 

"An' keep the kid on a leash, he messes with my stuff he gets sent out the airlock." He says as he starts walking out with Fern following. "Meet me at hanger Four-B in twenty minutes." He then walks out the door, heading in the direction of the nearby hanger in the upper districts.

 

The hanger mentioned can be seen from the outside of the bar, a large spear-like structure. Larger ships, larger than single passenger vehicles, occasionally enter and leave.

To put into perspective, the ships entering are usually large freighters, and compared to the structure, appear as fighter-craft.

Zolin turned to Sash, still pouting that he got dragged into the bar. "What kid? Which one of us is a kid? Hey wait, I wanted to hear stories from him! WAIT UP!" With that, Zolin started to run after Allen and Fern.

"He meansss yo-" Sash deadpanned before Zolin ran after the Novakid. He spun around quickly trying to grab the avian by the collar, missing him by a hair. "W-wait-Agh!"

*Thud* 

"Ow...."

The sudden turn had caused the rear of his spear to lodge itself between of the table's supports and him to lose his balance and faceplant on the floor. The Floran hissed something incomprehensible one would assume was cursing, while banging his fist on the ground. Looking up at the door he shifted over and stared at the rest of the group "Gone...Thisss one is going to get himsself killed...."

Ignoring the drink as she does not drink and the Avian as she doesn't give a byte about him, Sis helped the Floran getting back up.

"Amused. You have quite the habit to bang into your surroundings."

Now properly upright Sash sheepishly smiled at Sis. 

"Thankss, it's been a ssstrange day. S-sorry about the greeting thing... probably sshould have explained what it was." He paused and looked her over "That'sss some neat armor though, looksss very.... Glitch? " Shifting around he notticed the strange woman from their group sleeping on the bar and poked Mike in the shoulder gesturing at her and then the door "W-we sshould probably get her and go find thisss ship before Allen shoots Zolin, It'ss bad luck to start a hun- ehm mission with friendly deaths..."

He walked over to the sleeping redhead, placed his hand on her shoulder and shook her lightly "Wake up ssstrange lady, the ship is waiting."

Yoko woke up and slowly looked around the bar..."Did they get here yet?", she sleeply asked before realizing that they had left for the hangar. "Oh shit.. now I'm late!" Yoko rushed out the bar and dashed towards the hangar.

The building as the group approached it simply looked bigger and bigger, its a surprise capitol ships aren't housed here. After about 15 minutes the group reached the main entrance, a large intricate archway was built over the various glass entryways. People of various races commonly walked in and out, nearby a large gateway stood where employees transfered goods on large transport trucks.

 

Being in one the higher districts, the platform the hanger was on gave a good view of the surrounding area, not that you'd see any grassland as the city is quite massive and buildings span as far as the horizon.

Such marvels of engineering are spaceports, a true sight to behold, although not the first time being in one Mike still felt overwhelmed by this gargantuan construction, it simply isn't something you get used to all that fast.

"Methan said to meet him at hangar 4 B" he said to himself "OK so it should be this way based on standard spaceport nomenclatures, we should get there in no time" he gestured to the rest of the group to follow him as he started walking towards the hangar sectors.

Zolin was awestruck by the various ships, and was drooling over the thought of piloting one someday. Shaking his head, he proclaimed: "I wanna drive that one, no, that one! Maybe even that one! Guys, we can play Bumper Ships!"

Mike laughed, such a lively Avian, full of life and clearly very naive "I'm fairly certain local security would not even allow you to get close to any ship docked here, just stick to us and you will at least be able to set foot on our new found companions vessel, unfortunately as he has clearly stated I doubt you or even me for that matter will get a go at the controls" he then made sure to keep Zolin in his sights at all times, keeping him from wandering to far from the group, until they reached hangar 4 B.

Even if it seemed like a joke at first, Sis started to really feel the need to restrain Zolin. In fact, she started to quietly look around and see if she could get anything useful to tie him during the trip.

Sash quietly walked with the rest, taking in the views and gawking at all the various ships and all the fascinating technology behind them. His face was stuck in an almost permanent glee, like a child entering a toy shop, with occasional pauses for chuckles at the rest of the crew's antics.

The group soon reached the B section, there were a few ships visable from the other side of the large glass windows, it seemed medium sized ships where kept here, such as transport and frigate class ships. Each window was surround by steel plating, large doors leading out to the docking bay were spread evenly across, one at each section. On the opposite ends of the hall from each door where storage areas, some with goods waiting to be processed or loaded.

 

Visible were a small Apex transport, markings indicated Miniknog, possibly an ambassador, as well as a human frigate, no markings symbolising its military, so possibly civilian.

 

Down the hall, a larger ship was visible that resembled... a train? It was parked in section 4B.

 

 

"Y'all made it." said a familiar country voice.
