The Commitment 19/40

Dex: . . . He called me. Return callsign was a bakery — I’ll forward you the address. Said he’d be at Alley Ops. I take it he hasn’t arrived.

Del: They’re watching for him. No sign yet.

I’m canvassing the area in person. I know you’ll think this is a trap, but: your on-site help would, no doubt, be much more effective.

Dex: I’m very far from Central — and that’s all the intel you’re getting.

Del: I hear the faint sounds of ocean waves . . . lovely weather . . . steel drum players . . . Added to what I know of your linguistic skills: United Islands?

Dex: That’s literally a broadcast I have going on in the background. Stars above, Del, it’s not me you need to be finding right now.

Nothing wrong with Del trying to to their best in everything they do (Sorry, I’m not sure with Del’s pronouns)

Del is She/Her.

As for Dex, I suspect they are making a token effort at counterespionage here. We know the wave sounds are legit, so the steel drums may be as well.

Yes, I am absolutely still hoping to see Dex holding a colorful cocktail with a slice of fruit as a garnish, but I’m also trying to temper my expectations. It’d be a little weird for Dex to go get a drink in this specific scenario.

Same time, it is a very token effort. Even a burner can still be traced to a location using the tower it was pinging off, and even if smartcrystals use magic they can probably use some magic crap to backtrack it to a rough area.

Meaning Dex has to know this and they’re already moving to make sure nothing can be found connecting them to this rough location.
