The flight down to Terra had been uneventful, but Hobbie hadn't expected it to get exciting. There wasn't much around here to take notice of him. Luckily for him, the cabbie he'd gotten Mia to send had been dozing in his seat and had missed actually seeing him land his ship.

Explaining away a spaceship was always awkward but, being where they were, it was much more likely Hobbie had his own plane. Even still, the cabdriver was curious, probably wondering why someone who had his own plane needed a cab instead of having a limo waiting or something. Hobbie didn't bother to answer his questions and eventually the driver didn't bother to ask them.

Of course, for his trouble, Hobbie paid the driver well and was out of the cab almost before it fully came to a stop.

He was just deciding whether to go in or not when he caught sight of Mia and Kit.

Mia was exiting the police station with Kit when a cab driving off caught her attention.

"Hobbie?" she said tentatively. Both women looked on the verge of tears. Mia slowly stepped forward. "We have to go out to the crime scene. We just... Came from the morgue." Part of her wanted to go to him and hug him or something but she stayed where she was.

Hobbie nodded at Mia, "yes, Hobbie. That's me." He was fairly sure he remembered her companion but for the life of him at the moment he couldn't remember if they'd formally met or anything.

Not that it really mattered at the moment.

A part of him argued about seeing the bodies but mostly there was a large part of him relieved he wouldn't have to. He didn't want to see Wes like that.

"And hiking I can deal with." Even with his military-issue bag slung over his shoulder. "Let's go."

"I remember you fine, but it's... I'm glad you're here. You know Kit, right?" she asked, gesturing to the other woman. Yes, she's always been bad at introductions, and being polite is the last thing on her mind right now.

She headed with them towards Wes' car, trying not to think about how wrong it felt using it now that they knew for certain he was gone. She'd wait until they were seated inside to fill in Hobbie. "I'm sorry you had to arrive to this news."

"That works for me." He agreed. He had no better idea than Kit of where to go.

And for Mia, "we were supposed to be celebrating Midwinter..." Bastard, going and getting himself killed on a holiday.

"They were on their way to cut down a... tree. For Terra's Midwinter. Instead of going to someplace nearby town, they had to come all the kriffing way out here and..." get themselves killed.

Mia swallowed as they headed toward the tree farm and began to tell Hobbie a condensed version of what Frank had told them. She left in the major details, even though her voice shook a little. She made sure to tell Hobbie about the attack, Wes and Frank killing most of the attackers, the fake tattoos, and who Frank believed was really behind it. "Frank hid Aidan's sword and Wes' blaster in a tree. We have to go find them before the authorities do."

Hobbie listened to Mia's story, becoming more and more still as he did so. That didn't bode well for those who had attacked Wes, Frank, and Aidan.

"Hide them, I'd imagine." Use them against the pretend-Watchers, something like that.

"I'm more worried about having enough time to find the tree and sneaking out two obvious weapons. We might need a distraction."

Hobbie let out a sharp, sardonic laugh, "I think I can handle that."

He'd had a lot of experience in various hijinks with Wes.

Mia looked at him for a second, thinking how much he sounded like Wes just then. "The tree's probably part of the crime scene, Hobbie, so we'll need a good one. Do you want to split up or stick together?" she asked Kit.

"I can handle it."

Though he would've liked having more supplies to come up with something. But he'd make it up as he went along.

[sorry, I'm a flake. Do you guys still want to continue?]
