After Mr. Tamatzui got the informations about the new case he went back to the office to collect some informations. While reading he recognized that his partner had wetened his pants by jumping into the water. He sighed and changed his clothes the second time that day.
Then he went to the spaceport to travel to a spacestation as he had to solve a case there.
After a short travel he arrived a spacestation which was located on an asteroid. He climbed into a basic spacewalker and started to search the entrance.
He parked the walker and started searching for his client.
After he had looked around for some time he found two robots which showed him the direction he had to go to.
The robots didn`t lie to him. After two minutes he found the comander of the spacestation. She introduced herself to him as "Captain Camela Carnivora". And added: "But you could call me Cam" while fluttering her eyelashes. As Mr. Tamatzui only nodded she started to explain his job to him.
She asked him to follow her to another gate. On the way she showed him the cloakroom where he got rid of his jacket. "I didn`t want any of the robots hear why you are here so we had to walk a bit away from them they hear rather good" Cam told Steven. "We have a problem on this Stations, things disappear and appear on other places than before - we lose food and we have a problem in the watersupply. Somehow we lose a lot of water and i do not know why and how. I told the robots that you are a technical inspector. This will allow you to enter all areas of the station".
Mr. Tamatzui looked to the Comander and asked "Mss. Carnivora could you show me the way to the control centre? I think that would be the best place to start the investigations". Camela bit on her lip to avoid telling Mr. Tamatzui again that he could call her Cam. She had now been alone for almost a month with the robots and a flirt would have been rather welcome. Instead she nodded. They climbed into two spacewalkers and went to an other section of the spacestation.
Mr. Tamatzui looked curious to a giant robot he saw via radio communication he asked Camela "what job has the giant robot here?" she answered "he collects soil and catches small asteroids". Mr. Tamatzui mumbled "interesting" and was glad when he entered the control section.
Before he had told the commander that he needs to be alone while investigating, so he started searching the control centre.
He didn`t need to search for a long time - He took a seat and started to read through the statistics of the spacestation.
Suddenly he heard something. He looked around carefully. Then he saw a tiny robot which was trying to hide.
Mr. Tamatzui was a bit surprised he did not have much to do with robots before and thought more of them as machines than intelligent beings. He was even more surprised when he recognized that the robot was doing its best to sneak out of the control centre secretly.
So he pretended to be very concentrated on all the stats of the spacestation.
The robot reached the door and managed to sneak out. Mr. Tamatzui stood up silently.
He watched the robot and followed it through the corridors.
After a while Mr. Tamatzui had enough of following and said loud "hello". The robot turned around quickly and moved its legs nervously.
Mr. Tamatzui kneeled to have a better look at the robot. The robot slowly came closer. "Where are you going to?" Mr. Tamatzui wanted to know. "To a friend" the robot answered. "Is your friend a robot like you?" asked the dective. The robot shaked its head - it had to shake it's full body for that as it didn't have a neck. Mr. Tamatzui raised an eyebrow and told the robot to introduce him to its friend.
The robot was first a bit unwilling but then it explained to Mr. Tamatzui that it told its friend that it won`t tell anybody about him. So Mr. Tamatzui had to use some old screws as bribes. He first had thoughed about using cookies as bribes but wasn' t sure if they would work at a robot. They made the agreement that the robot shows Mr. Tamatzui only where its friend lives. And goes away then so that its friend doesen' t know about it's betrayal.
So the robot showed Mr. Tamatzui a corner of the spacestation and pointed with a leg on a air duct. Mr. Tamatzui moved closer to it and had a look.
He saw two pink tentacles.
So he knocked. A tiny tentaclish being pressed it self out of the slits and looked with big eyes to the man. It mumbled "hello".
Mr. Tamatzui suddenly grabbed the tentaclish being and asked it threatening "Did you steal the things and did you also take the water?" The tentaclebeing squirmed in his hands and tried to get free. "Hm, i have some things in mind i could do with you" hummed Mr. Tamatzui.
He let the being fall onto the floor and it hugged his leg starting to beg not to kill it. Mr. Tamatzui patted the tentaclish thing on the head and told him to stop begging and that he won' t kill it. "I think i have seen a place you could like here, you steal the water because you need it don' t you?" he asked. The tentaclish being nodded.
Mr. Tamatzui picked the tentaclish being up and carried it to a fountain he had seen while searching for the control centre. The being did not really belive that it could live now in the fountain and put one of its tentacles carefully into the water. Mr. Tamatzui pushed the being softly into the water and it splashed happily.
Mr. Tamatzui told the being that he will talk with the commander so that it could stay at the spacestation and left. He climbed into the spacewalker again and found the comander working in the outside in her spacewalker. He told her about the being and had even the impression, that she was glad about the knowledge that she wasn t the only living being on the asteroid. He bid farewell to her and flew back to earth.
When coming to the office he found his partner Mss. Haiku making cookies. He knew she wouldn' t share the cookies with him if he would have made a comment about her paws. So he ignored them and sat down on the sofa.
Some minutes later she had put the cookies into the oven and took place next to him. She told him how it went with Uriachan Castleburner and he informed her that he had the chance to have a space love.
What we used:
We made most of the pictures at New Zion a very well designed Roleplay sim. Its build for SciFi roleplay and based on Serenity and Firefly. Its worth to have a look at the sim. But please be so kind to keep in mind that it is a roleplay sim. So if you go in the outside on the sim keep in mind its a moon and you need air supply to survive in the outside.
