Jules arched her eyebrows as the strangers eyes lingered on her slightly to long. She didn’t actually overly mind as he didn’t leer and to her it was a compliment especially when she didn’t feel at her best, what with the peroxide blonde bed hair. He also seemed somewhat charming although Jules didn’t buy it, yet at least. She was not so easily swayed by nice words and a flashed smile.

She in turn sizes the stranger up although quickly and with no lingering, almost somewhat dismissively. He was sure of himself for a naked burgular. He also seemed to know Mr. Ken better than she as he’d used his full name which she hadn’t known. It looked like she wouldn’t have to shoot him or do worse afterall. Jules sighed and visibily relaxed although she kept her hand cannon ready.

“ok, you win for now, I won’t shoot you.” Jules replies, her killer big brown eyes catch some ambient light and seem to sparkle mischievously. Her attention is then drawn to floor as the scratching noise resumes.

“Well, what are you waiting for? I’ve got your six” she says waving her hand cannon at the strangers rear end.

Rhone flashes a quick glance towards the sudden sound where the rubber runner rests, but his attention is immediately back on Jules. Drawn to her eyes, Rhone stares into them a moment longer before hesitantly wrestling his gaze from the young woman. In the back of his mind, he was forced to admit this woman could give him a run for his money.

"Much appreciated, little darling." He responds to her first statement playfully.

After another lingering gaze, Rhone is pulled back to reality.  She had him dumbfounded twice now. The girl was good, and Rhone would wager her charm was one of her deadliest tools.

"Yes ma'm."  He says with a wide grin and a quick wink before turning his back to her and kneeling to the floor.

He listens closely, waiting for any change in the sound before proceeding to attempt to lift the runner.  Freeing his left hand, Rhone sets the blade nearby, while keeping his bolt pistol at the ready.

"Keep your distance, little darling...but give me a little light would ya?  Could be nothing, but i'd rather not bank on two people being compelled to investigate 'nothing' in the middle of the night."

The warning was sincere, as was his body language.  Wherever Jules was, Rhone positioned himself so that his body was between her and any potential threat from the source.

Rhone lifts the runner easily enough. He quickly discovers a trap door. As soon as he lifts up the runner enough to actually see the door, however, the scratching stops.

No one else in the establishment has, as of yet, been stirred by any of the noise you or the scratching has made.

Jules gifts the stranger a smile as she perhaps gets him on side, time would tell. The smile is warm, even in the darkness, and her legendary dimples come into play. Despite her attributes; the killer big brown eyes, the warm smile accompanied by dimples and her tall athletic frame she was actually quite plain. Her nose was almost sharp and pointed and her lips were thin, she wore no make-up and was a little dirty. Her only musk was her sweat and tears she had endured over the last few days.

The stranger was definitely a military man, his poise and actions were evidence of it. Jules had seen as much on the Bountiful Harvest the rouge trader ship. It had plenty of soldiers and enforcers who were often her patients. The stranger also stirred memories of her Tau friend, he called himself a Fire Warrior, she had had many lengthy discussions with him about his past and had been lucky on occasion to go with him on expeditions on to strange alien worlds.

As the scratching stops Jules focuses, she stood behind the stranger her gun now pointing upwards at 45 degrees so as not to bring her 'companion' into its firing line if she needed to use it. She had picked up much from her rough and tumble life from penal colony and beyound.

Jules peers over the strangers shoulder as he reaches to open the runner.

Jules spies the shotgun under the counter, she looks from it to the bolt pistol the stranger carried and decided not to mention it. Her eyes follow the bolt pistol up his muscular arm, up and over the strong shoulder and to his neck to his tattoo or as she considered it for a moment, more like a brand. A barcode? The inmates of Phyrr had something similar, the black stripes indicating their designation, crime and punishment. Although if you were on Phyrr it was life. Jules had been one of the extremely lucky ones.

-hmm, interesting-

Jules wondered what his name was but logic quickly asserted itself and she decided now was not the time for proper introductions...

Rhone studied the trap door a moment, smiling to himself. He could feel the girl's presence behind him, positioning herself tactically. The way she carried herself suggested she had definitely used a weapon before.  Her athletic frame had his attention for multiple reasons. Whoever she was, he would wager she was more than capable of holding her own.

Just behind the counter, the glint of the triple barreled shotgun caught his eye.  The sawn-off death dealer was a beautiful sight to Rhone...maybe Kenji would part with it for a fair price.  He looked back towards the woman a moment.  His subconscious picked something up as he studied her briefly, but he would revisit the thought later.  

Suddenly, as if he just got the punchline to a bad joke, Rhone shakes his head and sighs. He looks to Jules and in a low tone, begins mimicking a chicken.

"Bwock, bwock, bwock...."

"We may have just stumbled onto the source of Ken's eggs...what do you think?"

The strangers imitation meant nothing to her as she had never seen let alone heard a chicken 'bwock, bwock', but she understood that birds laid eggs so she made the connection that way.

-live stock, down there?-

Wouldn't it be unusual to have live stock on a space station, the costs and logistics didn't seem practical; at least to Jules. If Mr. Ken did have something like that down there then had something disturbed them.

She shrugged her shoulders at the strangers question.

"There is only one way to find out and I for one am not returning to bed until I know either way."
