It had been some time since Kaine had walked the planet of Commenor. Certainly things here seemed to have changed for the better, if this charity auction he'd seen on the HoloNet was any indication. Gathering a few loyal and trusted vode, he'd booked passage to Commenor to see what could be done. Most of the Clan accounts and holdings were long gone, but they still had some of their assets squirreled away that had gone untouched.
*Kaine and his four vode made their way into the Embassy and found seats at a table lined with various bottles of alcohol. Purloining several, the buckets came off, and the five began a lively round of drinking games. Kaine participated only perfunctorily, scanning the room, following the speeches, and making mental notes on what he saw. There was a lot to take in.*
Well, let's see how this goes. Kaine said to no one in particular, continuing to watch the proceedings, and the growing crowd, with interest.
Caz brushed a strand of hair behind her ear as she scanned the room for her husband.She knew he'd be where the alcohol flowed freely.She spotted him at a table... well she actually heard his boisterous laughter first.Drinking games were his favorite. She shook her head and started to him.She stopped behind him and stooped down next to his ear.
Fancy meeting you here, Mr. Australis.Wanna buy a girl a drink?
She knew better than to chastize him for his drinking habits.He was a good hearted man... but he had his vices.And she loved him anyway.
She slid into the empty seat next to him.
I'm going to enjoy spending your money tonight, love.... and for such a good cause.
She leaned over and planted a kiss on his cheek and smiled.
Now, about that drink?
