"Ahhh... This here is th' life. No bads jumpin' outta th' hallway t'shoot
at ya, no hidin' in th' dumpster on account o' thet gal's pimp." Chastity
paused. "Erm.. Wot I meant is no 'elpin' the bloody girl cop the chuffin'
BTL's away from 'er pimp, init? Why yer rabbit and porkin' about a
dumpster, Ton, then, eh, luv? Uh... Cor blimey guv, would I lie to you?
That were a good trid show... woulda pass that over, right, Toni?"
"I should just givie you some motor oil. Like *you* need to tan. Look at
this." Toni pointed to her arm, her arms were nearly a pure white, with
only a slight tan where her armour jacket and gloves didn't cover skin.
"Shadowrunner's tan. It's horrid! I'd like to know how Celt manages to not
get a tan. Or how you look like a beachbunny."
By contrast, Chastity's skin was a pure bronze, a result of the skin
pigmenting that she underwent regularly to keep her skin dark, not that she
ever admitted that to her friends. "She's a water witch. The chuffin' sun
reflects off 'er and burns uvvers."
"Shhh! Christ, if she hears you, she'll hellblast you into next week!" Toni
glanced around, worried that their short tempered teammate was withing
earshot. Celt was sitting talking with Caber about 30 feet away, and didn't
appear to have heard.
"I got me eyes closed, right, I'll be not so bad." Chastity grinned. Toni
and Celt both knew that Chastity firmly believed she'd be safe from most
spells if she closed her eyes, and no amount of arguing had ever changed
that drug induced inspiration.
Toni sighed. "Whatever. I'm going for a swim, join me?"
"No thanks. Salt water is bad for me complexion. I'll hold yer drink." Toni
set her drink on the nearby table, elicting a grumble from Chastity, and
then headed for a swim.
Chastity turned to warn her back for a while. She didn't notice the rather
localized, and very low clouds that gathered above her. Nor did she notice
the not so hushed whispers coming from where Celt and Caber were sitting.
She DID notice the sudden freezing cold rain and thunder, however. Laughter
answered her shocked shriek, and it got even louder as the rainstorm
followed Chastity into the beach tent.
"Okay Okay! I get the hint already!" Sheesh!" Chastity came storming
(Literally) out of the beach tent, straight towards Celt. "How could you be
so mean?!? You got SEAWATER in my drink! I can't drink this!!!" She
hollered at Celt, who tried without success to look serious at someone in
their own personal monsoon. "Oh forget it. I'm not talking to you anymore."
Celt laughed even louder as Chastity turned her wrath over a watered down
drink on the miniature storm, trying unsuccessfully to talk it into doing
something else with it's water. Finally she gave up and went back to her
blanket, and laid herself out to have a good rain tan.
"How long are you going tae let that last?"
Celt shrugged at Caber. "Sunrise isn't for another 18 hours."
Chastity: Team decker/drug habitue. The most socialable of the group.
Toni: Team rigger and hermetic mage. Second most socialable.
Celt: Team mage. Typical follower of Sea.
Caber: Team muscle/decker. Typical Scotsman.
(Yes, the team took their vacation together. They are all insane...)
