As is the usual routine, the party members meet for breakfast.
While discussing the plans for the day, Sin-Sasha receives a call. It’s DI Morrison. She listens for a while and then addresses the others.
“Apparently ‘Miss Fontaine’ has gone missing some time during the night,” she informs the assembled party members. “They found her tag at the bottom of the river. The DI says that she must have made some good underworld connections very quickly to have managed to find a way of removing it.”
“The result is that she is now their prime suspect. Sinclair is not completely off the hook just yet – they need to get more evidence on her before he is, but they are not as interested in him as they were yesterday. They aren’t removing the tag from him yet though.”
“Well that’s some good news,” Sinclair says, breaking another croissant in two. “I never liked the woman anyway. I thought that she must have been some kind of lesbian.”
“Anyway, hopefully they’ll catch the witch again soon and then we can move on. So what’s on everyone’s agenda for today then?”
Dev’s the only one with much of an agenda and so Sinclair celebrates his newly-won freedom by taking everyone to the fake beach for the day. With the pollution too bad to make sitting on a real beach a very pleasant activity, there are several fake ones in domes created for the purpose.
While the others take the day off, Dev spends the day meeting with lawyers to find out about the possibility of obtaining yet more new passports. He learns during the course of the day that Jewell is one of the worst places in the Spinward Marches to try and obtain a new identity due to the high level of technology on the world and the high law level, the combination of which makes Jewell passports highly complicated instruments which are practically impossible to recreate. Instead he is recommended to get one on Esalin where legitimate passports are issued to rich investors and forgers should have little problem in copying the simple little paper booklets they issue which feature security measures no more complicated than a simple embossing device.
The party members meet up again for dinner. Then, after a quiet night the night before, Sinclair takes many of the crew members out for a long and drunken night out.
