A Mandalorian, a Togruta, a Ssi-ruu, and a Droid...
Elias was just as surprised as Delni at the sudden appearance of the droid and took a moment to appraise the new arrival. While it certainly had more personality than other droids that the smuggler had had a run in with, he didn't recognize it and, in an equally low voice, he stated so. "Never seen it before and that's the honest truth. Just how much of a coincidence is it?"
Elias himself was suddenly itching to put his helmet on and sweep the area with an alternate view mode, but he figured it would be rude, not to mention he had a business proposition for the two sisters.
Delni kept her voice soft, so as not to call any attention from Sirka. "Hmm, sure. Guess I can take you at your word for now. I suppose we shall just have to watch and see what happens." She said, taking a small sip of her drink while keeping her eyes on Elias, and maintaining a smile. "But...I get the feeling you had something to say, yes? You would not approach a stranger if you did not. Please, go on."
Willoh was esctatic Sure this lizard person was a bit aprehensive at a droid asking a ton of questions, and Willoh could detect the distrust of droids in their voice, but they were being pretty polite compared to some other people she had to deal with. Figuring that it would be more polite to talk first, since she was being a slight bother anyway, Willoh stoood up straight. "Hiya! I'm Willoh. And I'm a droid, I thought that was a bit... well nevermind. And my questions are because I've never seen someone that looked like you! Its really neat!
She said, not doing much to hide her excitement.
Sirka exhaled sharply, pausing to take a swig of one of what was now several drinks sitting in front of her. "Yeah, well that makes two of us." She replied. She had been asked what she was so many times by this point that it may as well have been a ritual for her. Few greetings passed without it, and she could still never answer it. "Don't know what I am. Never seen or heard of my own species. But I've also never seen a droid like you. Never met one so...curious either."
Elias chuckled softly before taking another sip of his drink, letting the taste linger on his tongue a moment before swallowing. Straight to the point, his type of gal. "Well, you've got me there, though it was only after your sister indicated she worked as muscle. You see, I'm something of a...delivery specialist. The kind of guy who will get it to where you want it with no questions asked."
He takes another sip of his drink and glances over as a third Mandalorian, once more of a different clan, walks by."I recently got out of a bad business deal with a former Moff and thought you might be looking for someone who could provide...discreet transportation when needed."
He let his eyes come back to the Togruta's own and smiled a dashing smile. "What do you say?"
Delni kept her eyes mostly on Elias, glancing only occasionally over to the droid and Sirka. The machine certainly had an...interesting personality. From what she was overhearing, it seemed as excitable as a Gungan toddler. Regardless, her conversation with the Mandalorian seemed a bit more important at the moment. "Well, if we had somewhere we needed to go, that certainly would be a wonderful offer. Unfortunately, we are not in need of any sort of discretion at the moment. My sister is a mercenary, and she does not tend to take jobs that overly-rely on subtlety. Not to say she is not flexible, but she is one to hire when you're expecting a firefight. She's about the toughest fighter you could imagine. Strong as a wookiee, scales like durasteel; I've never seen her lose a stand-up fight. She plies her trade for anyone who can pay well enough. I don't suppose a dashing Mandalorian like yourself would have need of such a deadly ally, would you?"
Willoh tried to give a smile, well, as good as a smile you could express with only eyes for your facial feature. "Well I thought you were a tiss'shar, just oversized at the start. But looing at ya up close, I don't think thats true. Pretty neat though!"
bouncing around a little bit on the heels of her feet, she continued. "As for why I'm so curious, why wouldn't I be? I'm not one of those storebought droids. I'm a bit more advanced than them."
She said with a giggle. "But don't worry, I get that a lot! Whats your name by the way? And who are those two behind ya. Friends of yours?"
Again, Sirka exhaled, though this time it was more of a result of frustration than anything else. "I swear, I'm either the most avoided person in the room, or the most popular." She muttered audibly, though mostly to herself. In general, she was not actually so anti-social, but all of the attention on her sister had put her in a certain sort of mood. On top of that, it was unusual for a droid to be walking around asking questions, and that made her naturally wary. "Guess it can't hurt. My name is Sirka, she's my sister Delni, and I don't know that guy."
Hearing Ms Sirka's little verbal frustration was a bit funny. Willoh had sort of the opposite problem, ignored until she made a loud ruckus. "Hiya Sirka. Nice to meetchya! And thats pretty neato how you have a sister lke that. Droids sorta don't got family ties like that. Kinda lonely really... But hey! You get someone fun to travel with."
Willoh said. She then started to eye the mandalorian that Sirka had said that she didn't know, the one who looked like he was flriting with her sister. Motioning to Sirka with a small giggle, pointing at the mandalorian, Willoh approached the mandalorian.Getting his attention, she put on bedroom eyes and got into a sexy pose. "Heya Mr. Rugged. Wanna buy a lady droid a drink?"
She said, in a deeper tone.
Elias glanced over at the lizard again and then shrugged, taking a sip again. "Perhaps not, but most Mandalorians also know when it doesn't hurt to have an ally to fall back on too. Besides, it never hurts to have the connections for when future jobs call for mo-"
And from out of left field came the droid, adopting what was supposed to be a sexy and seductive pose and asking him if he wanted to buy her a drink. He blinked for a solid thirty seconds while his lips moved in an effort to find words.
From a day that had been horrible due to near death by turbolaser and TIE Fighter to being hit on by a droid that was programmed with a female personality, the smuggler was willing to call it a day. But he needed this potential client and so, with a great effort, he spoke. "I must apologize miss, but I'm not into droids like that."
Willoh looked disappointed at the rejection, or so she had him beleive before bursting out into giggles, slapping her knee and saying. "Aw shucks. And it would've been a fun night. Oh well!"
Willoh was used to that response, but it was fun all the while to flirt anyway. Never knew when you'd get some free alchohol, especially since that made for great flamethrower fuel.
Sirka, even with as irritable as she had been so far, could not help but to laugh at the absurdity of the scene before her. It felt like someone was staging some sort of joke on her. Regardless, it would be difficult for the droid to miss her bellowing laugh. "Okay, so...what even are you? Were you programmed as some sort of...I don't know. Dancer? Servant? Prostitute? Where is your master, even?" She asked.
Pumping her fist in joy as she made Sirka laugh, happy at the hearty laugher, Willoh turned while beaming and decided she could say a little. "Well, lets just I'm a bit... more autonomus than most droids. No master, and boy I wouldn't want one. Though other droids do tell me I'm glitchy sometimes. Being a free droid does that to ya."
willoh said, laughing. Turning to look at everyone, Willoh went on "So... why is Mr. Mandilorian here? Considering theres a few running around here, it can't be just to flirt."
It took some effort for Delni to maintain most of the composure she had been keeping with Elias, as she shared her sister’s sense of humor. This droid, whatever it was, had rendered the confident Human speechless. It was funny enough that she could not help but to want to keep it going, if just slightly. “I do wonder, how much are you here for business, and how much for pleasure?” She added towards Elias.
Inside, Elias was fuming. Outwardly, he simply grinned finishing his drink before sweeping his arm at the entirety of the entire club. "Look at this place. One comes for one as much as the other, it simply can't be helped. But in all honesty, I'm here to lay low. I do have to do that on occasion. I saw the pair of you and thought perhaps a little business was in order."
Delni raised her brow just slightly at Elias. "Strictly business, then? A shame." She commented briefly. "Not to say I am...uninterested in business, of course.""What kind of business?"
Willoh asked, a bit curious. She hadn't dealt with many mandilorians, only going on what she read on the holonet. But the name was quite reputable, and reputation was what she was after.
Unlike the droid, the scents she picked up on off of the Mandalorian were actually meaningful. Humans were a constant in the galaxy, and she could recognize their scents pretty much on reflex by this point. To his credit, he controlled his expression and most other body language perfectly, but he could not control the chemicals his body exuded. He was angry, and she could guess at the source. "The droid upsetting you, Mandalorian? She is about as blunt as a hammer, I'll say." She said, flicking out her tongues.
Elias ignored the ribbing from Delni's sister and opted to instead to address first Delni, then the droid. "If you'd rather have a night of fun, I'm certainly for that. You would have to pick the fun, as I feel your sister wouldn't trust my choices."
And then on to the droid. "As for business, just looking for a new client who has the occasional need of my services.""Oh, ok. I'm a mercenary slash bounty hunter so... I'd be the one offering you muscle for cash, not the other way around."
Willoh said, dismissing his offer with a giggle. She'd be much more interested seeing the date with Delni and this guy though, she was off the job as it was anyway.
Delni nodded along after Willoh. "Much like the droid, I and my sister would not be the one hiring you, unfortunately, but if we ever needed to go into a job as partners...well, I would have to see yours skills first, naturally." She grinned, placing a hand gently upon his armored shoulder for a moment. "So suffice to say, we do not have anything for you right now. Not in terms of business. For fun, well..." Turning back around on her stool, Delni picked up the drink that Elias had ordered for her and swirled it around lightly. "I'd have to say I would have a hard time trusting a man who doesn't drink with
me.""What she said. Plus no drinks for a droid. Now I gotta buy my own."
Willoh said, trying to pout in a playful manner.
Elias glanced at the droid and briefly wondered what she even drank before taking a proper seat next to Delni and ordering a round of Mandalorian Ale in Mando'ade, including for the droid. Holding up a glass, Elias offers another grin. "Well then, shall we?"
Sirka placed down an empty glass, then picked up the second drink that Elias had bought. If nothing else, Delni had managed to get the stranger to buy enough drinks for them, and even a droid for some reason. "Way ahead of you there, Mandalorian. You're goin' to be playing catch up."
Willoh gave a little 'yay' at having a drink bought for her. "The downside of being a droid, I can't get drunk. It looks like so much fun when you guys do it. All that stumbling around and all that stuff. Nice to be social though!"
she said. making a 'hatch' for her 'mouth to drink the liquid. She did so as best as she could manage with a very basic 'mouth, unable to make anything more eligant with stangers. After all, can't have the wrong eyes on her. Finishing her drink, she looked at Sirka, then Elias, "This makes for decent flamethrower fuel. Can make quite the fireball with alchohol. Thanks guy!"
Whilloh said, slipping the bartender a few credits when Elias wasn't looking to pay for the drink he had gotten her.
After giving a knowing smile to Sirka, Elias took the two glasses in front of himself and downed them both in quick succession and then pouring a third and drinking it as well. It clearly had a different effect on the man versus the Brandy, because he quickly stood and retrieved his helmet before calling the droid bartender over. Speaking to it in Mando'ade, Delni's glass was quickly decreased in the volume of drink. "It's been a pleasure, ladies, but I think it's time I head to my room. I need to have some repairs done to the Eclipse before I head out in a couple of days, and I need to shower after today's fiasco. Delni, I must suggest you get to your own room after trying the other drink I had brought to you and consider it me placing some amount of trust in you."
And with that, the Mandalorian is gone, his helmet back on his head as he exits the club.
