[While the final chapter of the FITE Arc will be concluded as a story written by yours truly, what I present for those interested in the events that have transpired is a kind of epilogue. There are still mysteries to resolve, after all...]
A bald, heavily-tattooed man stands in front of a metal box, a jumpsuit rolled down to his waist revealing intricate weaving patterns of waves, horizons, and suns. He stands there, quiet, contemplative, an open metal box, cushioned inside, as if something precious had once been inside... A woman steps up beside him, lithe and noticeably shorter, but no less heavily tattooed, her hair shaved on one side.
"What do you think happened to him?" the woman spoke, her voice husky, but light.
"I am... unsure that it matters anymore. He is either dead, or he is not." the man replied, still looking down to the box.
"I guess that means we're free, yeah?"
"None of us are free. Not yet."
The woman sticks her tongue out at him, "Downer."
Three months have passed since the Dragon's Den was attacked and the Four Moons Mercenary Company's headquarters dropped out of the sky... Life has gone on... In particular, a mousy little engineer, last name of Krupp. After a long night of work, she finds her datapad softly blinking at her, patiently waiting for her attention to inform her of an incoming message. When she finally gets to it... It consists of only a few words.
"Appointment set. Need to talk. Bring a friend. Information attached."
A small file is attached, detailing a time and place, followed by the signature: "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy". For the grease-lady, that could only be one person.
