John manages to cheese off the more sadistic of Dejah's pair of former guards, something he said came back to bite them.
They set themselves up in new quarters. Stopping to chat while Sola is out getting supplies, they seem to be falling for each other, or at least hitting it off very well.
John explains that he is from Virginia, on Earth. Dejah seems very familiar with it, and explains they have instruments to view events on Earth, projecting images with great detail.
- Probably an extension of the old Crystal Ball, or photography, this being, 1912, but I was kinda freaked out a first, thinking he was describing television.
- Also, it seems one of the minor hats of Mars is not wearing hats. Or much of anything else, really. Dejah is totally an Innocent Fanservice Girl, "What are those grotesque cloth contraptions your people wrap themselves with?" indeed.
- John has been promoting himself like crazy; he's the 11th most important person in the tribe.
- I wonder how hard that is, I mean; Mook, Mook, Mook... doesn't make for stiff competition. Then again, going from POW to boss os pretty impressive.
Sols returns, mentioning she saw the ex-guard snooping about. Uh oh. Before they have time to discuss this turn of events, John is summoned before the chief.
Also, even if it's bad, please say something
