Brad removed his glothes, put them on his lap, and took a bite of the steak. A bit well done for his taste, but it was fine.

"Sadly, you aren't that lucky." He said, "we simply noted that this war was getting tiresome. If you did not exist't he chances of us allying with the Suvoj would greatly increase. In other words, if you ceased to exist, there would be peace. Granted, we can hardly ally with you, and even if we would, you would be unwilling to listen to our terms.

"We have no actual hostilities towards you or your people, and in fact if you met the standards, then this world would all be one happy place. However, you do not, and so we are going to bring you under the E'shyum banner. What would you say? Is this war finally ready to be over? Are you finally ready to stop waring with us and to live out the rest of your life with what you have earned? Or are you too overcome with a lust for power and glory?"

Alden sighed sighed.

"Brad, we've known each other for a long time. You even served under me before this stupid war broke out. ((Yes, I am totally making up history for you )) And I'd like to think you'd know me better than that. I would never surrender my people to foreign forces. They chose me as their leader. If they wanted Jack as a leader, then they would join the E'shyum. Unfortunately, that is not the decision they made, and therefore I can't hand them over to you. You must have figured that I wouldn't give up that easy. You must also know that as we speak, my men are finding the bombs and dismantling them."




Major General Henry Marina was overwhelmed with emotions.

"Holly, you are so much like your mother. She had a fiery temper too. That's one of the reasons I fell in love with her."

He wanted to hug his dauter. It had been many years since she had run away, and he had never missed anyone as much during that time, not even her mother. To avoid confronting his feelings, he had submerged himself in his work, even more than usual.

"Where's Alden?" Holly asked, completely brushing aside his statement. Besides, Leon was there and she was not going to loosen up in front of anyone. "I haven't the slightest idea as to what's going on here...I heard something about bombs...what do we need to do to get rid of them?"

Josiah...where could he have gone off too...

ooc: If your men find any bombs, post as they do it, I have a few suprises for the bombs which I'd rather play out.

IC: "Yes, I am aware," Brad said. "And as it happens, we are hardly foreign forces. Your people would be run much the same way they are now, with lower taxes, less forced military involvement, and an increase in technological funding. I am tired of this war, I am sick of fighting day after day as you continue this tiresome crusade.

"And don't even try using morals to justify your actions. All of the moral people have joined either the E'shyum or the Suvoj. Your people are those who lack morality, lack human decency, or were forced into serving you simply because that's where their land was. You were not rightfully chosen. But, perhaps you could have them vote. Get nuked, or go under our control."

He took another bite of steak, and then tried the broccoli. "You do of course realize that we only have two hours to complete these negotiations before I destroy another city, correct?"

Leon stood he was fine. He brushed Holly off as she told him to lay day. His eyes fell on this old man, and he felt Holly's tension through a haze of drugs. He glanced sideways at Holly, then back at the old geezer. That ugly motherfucker...Holly's father.

"Thankfully in this case the apple did fall far from the tree."

Leon hardly knew what he was saying, he actually believed he was thinking this, but he spoke very clearly and concisely.

"Ewww, is that a tear or...is the thing's eye leaking?"

Holly spun around to face Leon so fast that she nearly lost her balance. Her eyes were wide and her mouth open in shock. "Leon...I am obviously not on good terms with this man." She says, gesturing behind her, toward her father. "But comments such as those..." Her voice trailed off and she turned to face her father again.

"If no one is going to take me to Alden, I'll find him myself." She says as she walks right past her father and out the door.

Leon looked confused.

"What the fuck is she talking about?"

He shook his head. Finally deciding to talk to them.

"What the fuck are you talking about? Comments? I didn't say anything. But wait, isn't Alden talking to the guy who's gonna nuke us?"

Leon stared off into the distance and held his arm uselessly at Holly, in an attempt to stop her, but she found he was out of his reach. When did that happen?

Marina looked strangely at the drugged up Leon. Damn hippy. He turned and raced after his daughter.

"Holly, wait! You can't go in there! It could interrupt a very important meeting--"




"Brad, you make me out to be an chauvinistic dictator. Is the propaganda that you sell your people? If that's so, you need to seriously reconsider your--"

He was interrupted as a furious Holly barged into the room.

Holly's cheeks were red and she was a bit fatigued by the time she managed to get past all of the guards and get into their conference room. "Alden, what the hell is going on he--" She stopped dead in her tracks and locked her dark blue eyes on Brad. She took a deep breath to calm herself and brushed a hand through her waist-length black hair.

She glanced around at the empty chairs and chose one that was about an equal distance from both Alden and Brad. "You boys take forever and make discussing most of these issues much more complicated than they actually are..." She said as she slumped into the seat. She then looked over at Alden and smiled. "And it will take a lot more than him..." she says, tilting her head in Eric's direction. "...to get me out of here."

"Well," Brad said, "perhaps you can assist us. I told him that we will detonate the nukes unless he turns over his property to us. As a result, he and several other people will be given enough money to last the rest of their lives in a good enviroment, and will be allowed to live the rest of their lives in comfort. His soldiers would not be forced to fight in our army, but if they choose to serve, they will be placed int ehir own battalion, payment will increase by twenty five percent, and they will have have the funding for a full education when they want to retire.

"You being a third party, I must ask, would you choose to live a very comfortable life, or would you choose to be responsible for the death of millions of civillians?"

Holly pushed her bangs out of her eyes and leaned closer to the table. She placed her elbows on the table and laced her fingers together to rest her chin on them. She looked Brad directly in his eyes as she spoke.

"Why?" She asked. She paused as she kept her eyes locked on Brad to be sure that he would take her seriously. "The one responsible for the death of these millions...let's say, this situation for example, would be the one who detonated the bombs, would he not?" She raised an eyebrow as she made her statement, keeping her voice and composure cool and relaxed.

"While I do not feel Alden is always right..." Her eyes darted in Alden's direction for a moment before returning to Brad's. "Using innocent lives as collatoral is just as wrong, Mr..." Her voice trailed off as she waited for Brad to give her his name.

"Desin, Brad Desin." he said, "and the amount of deaths saved will far outnumbed the amount lost. You see, I doubt that any more than one bomb will actually need to be detonated, and that wouldn't even come out in the millions. If the Marinae actually listen to me, there will be no casulties, this war will be over, and we will at last have peace, at least in this portion of the world. I think that is would serve the people's interests greatly to listen to us, even if we didn't have the bombs."

He took another bit of steak, and put some hot sauce on his plate. "You can hardly call us immoral for wanting peace, can you? Especially when we would be saving numerous lives."

(Teehee....long post. Be prepared. )

Holly chuckled. "Well you see, Mr. Desin, this is exactly why I am with none of these factions. You all seem to feel that having ultimate control will solve everything." She paused. "I always did feel that you men were that way, control freaks, and I have yet to be proven wrong."

She then got to her feet and made her way over to Alden. She looked over at Eric and smiled, letting him know that she meant no harm. Gingerly, she reached for Alden's glass and took a sip of his drink.

She was at ease with the men in the room as she sauntered over to her original position at the table. Only this time she did not sit in the chair. She stood, leaning her right hip on the table, crossing her legs at her ankles, and placing both hands at the very edge of the table.

"No one should be killed." She says firmly, making eye contact with both men sitting around her. "I don't care what your intentions are. Loss of life at all is wrong...and all for the sake of what...control?" She looked back at Eric and tilted her head slightly. The man hardly ever spoke. He probably has the most sense out of all of us here...She thought to herself ruefully before turning her attention back on Alden and Brad.

"People should not be forced to chose a side. It just isn't right. I, for instance, am not with any of your factions. If I was, it would be out of sheer force and even then, my heart would not truly be into it." She paused. "Any society would crumble is its members weren't into it. Therefore, by taking over the Marinae, Mr. Desin, you would only be forcing your views upon many people who do not share your thoughts and feelings."

She sighed, flopping back down in her chair. This time she sat scrunched up, placing her boots at the edge of the table, elbows on her knees, and forehead cradled in her fingers. "We need to get Edgar in here. I witnessed what happened the last time negotiations were attempted, but this time will be different, I'm sure of it." She looked from Brad to Alden. "And I am offering to take full responsibility for the consequences of my misjudgement, should anything go wrong. I will not resist. However, I demand that I be present as well." She then found herself glancing back over at Eric, a smile spreading over her youthful face. "Afterall, someone needs to defend those who chose to be on their own, rather than part of the three major factions."

Alden was becoming infumed by Dessin's impudence, he stood up, pushing his chair back.

"This discussion is over. I will not hand the Marinae faction over to such a small minded man as Jack Dreddin. I am asking you kindly to leave now, before I have to use force."




Marina stood outside of the door to the conferance room, debating whether to go in. One one hand there was his daughter, who had dissapeared from his life hears ago. He couldn't stand to lose her again. But on the other was his commander, who the militaristic father had sworn to obey his every word.




Jeremy stood ashamed, basked by his brother's furious eyes. He was thankfull when the silence was broken by the operator.

"Mr. Nalust, the lines are almost empty enough for us to teleport. There's been alot of activity due to the evacuations, but I've got us a slot, it should be about another five to ten minutes."

Harry responded to Holly first. "I do not plan to force anyone. Our leaders are elected, beliefs are not enforced, and there are many other good things. Jack himself palns to retire when the war is over." He paused as Alden spoke. his opinion on negotiating.

"You are a fool Alden." He said, "I have recorded every word you've said so far, and I think that this would be good to broadcast to all of your people. Your pride takes over what little intelligence exists in your brain, and as such, you could have doomed your people. I think that I don't even need to kill everyone, or anyone now that you've said that."

He turned towards the door and paused, "Holly, this place is going to be sent up in flames once I'm clear, since you are not associated with any of us, our men are willing to give you a ride to wherever you want.

He glanced at Alden, "Unless the fool would like to reconsider?"

"Sent up in flames?!" Holly exclaimed as she locked an outraged gaze on Brad. Quickly and gracefully, she brushed past Brad and stood directly in front of him in the doorway. "You can't be serious...not here...not now." Her voice was was not calm again, but the urgency was still there. "Sir, with all due respect, you can't really go through with this...please, put some more thought into this..." Her arms were outstretched in a feeble attempt to prevent Brad from exiting the room.

"I've put plenty of thought into that." Brad said, "but if the only other solution is to fight again and again and again, killing more people than in this place, then I consider it worth it. Most of the people here aren't even civillians.

"If he will open up negotiations, I won't destroy anything. I don't impose on my hosts, so unless he wants to stay and discuss it, this is pointless."

He looked at Alden. "I'd listen to her, even if you leave, destroying this place would tear your people apart, destroy the Marinae. I think that I've already won, not with the land I wanted, but I most certainly had victory. I'll give you until I am out of range to reonsider, Alden."

Holly looked back and forth from Brad to Alden, still standing in the doorway in front of Brad. She did not say a word at first, but continued glaring at both men for a moment or two.

"You still don't get it, Mr. Desin. You're saying your only solutions are killing some people versus killing many people...why do your solutions have to involve killing people at all?" Her voice was calm, but with the attitude that came with it before. This time it was soft. "Now...I am not moving from this door until I am satisfied with the answers." She looked up at Brad as she waited for his response.

"Perhaps you should direct your attention to that man." Brad waved to Alden, "I have offered him a way to end this war to the satisfaction of all, and and throws it away. If I could, this war would be over. Were Alden a moral man, the E'shyum would merge under him. But alas, he concentrated on war. He cannot be trusted to take over without hurting this world."

He looked at Alden. "This war was created by you, every signle death will be on your hands. We used to try to negotiate with you, the only reason this did not end in my death I imgaine is because then everyone would be dead."

He looked back at Holly, "if you can make him listen to reason, please do so, otherwise I shall take my leave."

Holly just rolled her eyes. "If I thought that Alden would listen to me, I would be." She says, letting out an exasperated sigh. She put her hand to her forehead and shakes her head slowly before gazing back up at Brad.

"Just..." She didn't know what to say at this point, but she still wasn't going to give up and remained in her place.
