Kyito feels his arms ache. He has been carrying the heavy burlap bag for nearly two hours now, and its contents are not getting any lighter.
Suddenly, a man's voice speaks from behind, surprising everyone present. "Quite the mess you caused, eh?" the voice says. Fortunately, it is the voice of Wes Janson, the mouthy Rebel pilot and member of the Tierfon Yellow Aces. From the shadows, both him and his commander, Jek Porkins, approach.
"The good news is that they are not suspicious of us yet. They say they are looking for some criminals from a violent cartel of pirates, not revolutionaries. The bad news is that your friend Captain Tikaris didn't seem to care. He took off as soon as the guns came out," Porkins says matter-of-factually, arms crossed atop his wide chest. He doesn't seem worried, though the situation does seem to have turned for the worse.
