Muireann comes out of the storeroom with a big tub of vanilla ice cream, classic style, which she hefts over towards the front of the store. Despite the tub's size, she seems to have little issue with it, aside from its awkward shape. Putting it in the freezer below the ice cream soda bar, she readjusts her skirt and re-sets her goggles into place.

Shintu is bent over, hands on his knees as he looks into a case. He shifts his head to gaze at the Orion as she comes in from the storeroom and slowly stands fully upright "Hey Muireann." He says with a smile

"Well, hello there, Shintu-san," Muireann replies, coming around from behind the counter to lean against the case on the same side as the Terran. A curl comes to her lips. "Any armed guard this time?" she asks as she glances towards the door.

"Two, outside." He says with a soft smile. His arms fold against his chest as he leans himself comfortably against her case "So, this is your shop huh?" He asks warmly, hmming "It's uh.. very intersting." He says with a chuckle as he moves his right arm out of the fold to point to a yo-yo "Use to play with those when I was a kid... Use to know how to walk a dog and do loop-to-loops." A shrug as he folds the arm again "Been a while though.."

Muireann giggles as she returns her gaze towards Shintu. "A little of this, a little of that. I wish I could say we specialize in something, but I think the closest thing to that is, mmm, we have a soda jerk?" Her smile widens. "I admit, that yo-yo is just a display model. We're waiting on more to come into stock. The last one was sold earlier today. But if you want," and her voice goes a little singsong, "I can reserve one for you..."

"Please?" Shintu says with a sly kid like smile on his face. "May give it another try. And what is soda jerk?" He inquires

"Back in the 19th and early 20th centuries, they used to have people who ran soda fountains called Soda Jerks. Add some ice cream to the soda and you have an ice cream soda, which was later refined into 'floats'. I'm the only one on the station that sells them at the moment. At least, in the old fashioned sense. We have a working soda fountain, as opposed to replicators." Muireann smiles over at the jerk behind the counter, term used affectionately, and then back towards Shintu. "As for the yo-yo, I definitely will. They usually run about 1000 credits, although if you want a custom one with your name etched or anything else in that, it could bring up the price."

Shintu ahhs, nodding "My father would make real rootbeer floats on the colony ship. Real ice cream and rootbeer, nothing replicated." He replies with a gentle smile. He slowly nods "Just a standard one." He says about the yo-yo. He hmms and quietly says "May I ask a more.. what I think is going to be sensitive question?"

"One standard yo-yo it is," Muireann relies. However, as Shintu's voice drops, she leans forward a little bit, showing a more direct angle towards her cleavage. "Fire away."

The Terran keeps his eyes more on the Orions face then cleavage as he continues to talk "Please understand that I am no way of accusing or trying to catorgize or label you as something you are not." He tells Muireann kindly "I .. just am trying to get from a to b, and I'm hoping you can help." He adds

Muireann raises an eyebrow, her lip curling slightly and she whispers something to him. You whisper, "What do you need, Shintu-san?" to Shintu.

"I'm needing to get with someone that can provide less.. then how.. do you say, legal? practices. I'm in search of someone." Shintu says lightly, his voice low as to keep the guards outside from hearing.

You whisper, "I admit I'm still in the process of getting my... connections... established. But I do know some people." to Shintu.

Shintu nods lightly "Thank-you. It's regarding the recent amber alert." He tells her quietly, eyes shifting briefly to look out the doors then back to her "I'm just following a thought is all. Could be nothing."

Muireann furrows her brow briefly.

You whisper, "I admit I don't know the woman, but did you need someone to find her, or what?" to Shintu.

He shakes his head lightly, speaking quietly again "No, I just need to be pointed in a direction. Price is of no concern." He hmms, adding "Upwards of several million for the right information."

You whisper, "I wish I could say I knew where she went, I really do. I have no clue. But I could refer you to someone who might be able to sleuth it for you. Or at least refer you to another who might. I know, shitty help I am, huh?" to Shintu.

Shintu smiles "Any help will work. Even if it comes from.. the less shady and mysterious business groups" He says with a slow, steady nod eyes locked on her

Muireann purses her lips and simply shakes her head. She gives him a brief helpless shrug and an apologetic look.

Shintu nods "Well, anything you can get me will help Muireann. Money is of no concern." He says calmly

Muireann nods softly. "I'll see what I can do," she replies.

Shintu nods lightly and hands her some undisclosed amount of money, nodding "That's for the yo-yo, and for a helping me." He says with a warm smile "So, you getting lunch later on?"

Shintu has just paid you XXXX.0 credits.

Muireann looks over the credit amount and nods. "I'll do my best, Shintu-san," she replies again with a smile. "I'll send you a subspace mail when the yo-yo shipment arrives, as well. Either way, you'll certainly hear from me."

He hmms on that and gives a sly smile "Well, your company is nice to have around, and your easy to talk with" He says kindly

"I try," Muireann replies in return, inclining her head playfully. "As for lunch, it is getting to be about that time soon, isn't it?" She smiles wider.

Shintu smiles "That it is." He says lightly "Hungry?"

Muireann shrugs gently, smiling up at the man. "A bit..."

Shintu nods slightly "Morns then?" He inquires

"Sounds like a plan," Muireann replies, giggling gently. "Shall we?" she asks. She gives a glance over towards the Soda Jerk, who gives a brief nod. He's got things covered.

Shintu smiles, nodding as he walks quietly towards the exit to the Promenade.

Muireann follows suit, exiting the store enroute to Morn's.

The door leading to Out slides open. The door leading to Thingamajig Miscellany slides closed. The door leading to Thingamajig Miscellany slides open. Shintu arrives from Thingamajig Miscellany. The door leading to Morn's Place slides open. Shintu leaves for Morn's Place.

Morn's Place [Deep Space 9]

By far, the largest section of the Promenade, Morn's Place is known far and wide throughout the Alpha Quadrant as /the/ place to have a drink and relax. One can either take a seat and have a drink or a meal, or take their chances at the Dabo table. Otherwise, with a little latinum and a lot of imagination, one can venture to the second level and utilize the station's only set of holosuites (booked by the hour).
There is a staircase which leads to the upper level of the bar, while the exit on the lower level leads back out to the Promenade.

You see Card Table, Morn, and Tip Jar here.
Kaigun Shoi Shintu is here.

The door leading to Promenade slides closed.

Shintu walks into Morns, but instead of heading to his favorite hangout spot, he instead goes to a table with two chairs opposite of each other. He pulls out a chair for Muireann.

Muireann graciously takes the offered chair, settling into it like a well-mannered (or at least well-pampered) young lady. "Why, thank you," she tells the older man. She does, however, look around to see where the armored guard went this time.

The Two guards are over by the bar. As the Ferengi comes over to take orders, Shintu says "Whatever they order, please put on my bill." The Ferengi nods in response as Shintu settles in the chair opposite. Finally, the Ferengi talks "What would, uh, you like to drink?"

Muireann considers that a moment. "It's lunch, I'll behave. I'll take a light Bajoran Spring Wine, please." She does give a glance towards the bar, then gives a gentle shrug. "At least they're staying out of your way," she says with a curling little smile.

Shintu grins "They have been good about not hovering over me." He says idly, a slight smile crossing his lips. The Ferengi asks the same question, and Shintu orders his usual "Sweet Tea." A nod is given by the Ferengi who turns and scampers off to the bar. "Honestly, I am thankful for having them. Some of the Bajorans have not been kind with the fact of me trying to kill someone.." His eyes lower a little on that subject.

"So they're more your bodyguards than to really watch you," Muireann surmises, leaning gently on the back of her chair casually. "I suppose that's not so bad, so long as they remain background noise."

"It is. Even glares not withstanding, I have had a few items chunked at me. But mostly just the stinkeye and nasty looks." Shintu says calmly as he folds his arms on the table. "And yes, it is nice to have them more as background noise then hovering over me."

The door leading to Promenade slides open. Senka arrives from Promenade - Section A. The door leading to Promenade slides closed.

Shintu and Muireann sit opposite of one another towards the back half of Morns. Two Bajoran guards sit at the bar, having ordered food and are eating.

Entering the bar, Senka takes a Vulcan spiced tea and heads towards a back corner table near the view ports.

"Any news on how much longer you'll be on station and under guard?" Muireann inquires of Shintu. "I'm not in a hurry to have you leave, but I know you have your livelihood to worry about."

"Not sure. I spoke with the Commodore and he assured me he was going attempt his best in getting the charges dropped." Shintu says quietly. He gives a slight fond smile "Thank-you." He adds. The Fenergi walks back over, settling the two drinks on the table "Uh, what would you like to eat?" Shintu glances up to him, hmming "A grilled chicken Pennia" He says briefly before looking to her.

Senka has pulled out his kal-toh set and resumed working on a half-formed construct.

Muireann gives a pleasantly surprised smile. "Dropped? Amazing considering it's an admiral involved." Quickly, she replies to the Ferengi, "Oh, I'd like a turkey and cranberry sandwich, please, and a side of sweet potato fries."

"While I did try to murder him, it wasn't .. well, me." Shintu says idly "I was being manipulated or controlled. I am really unsure." He adds as the Frenegi nods and wonders off with the orders.

"That's what they all say," Muireann replies in that obviously teasing voice, grinning back at him. "So... are you cured?" she asks in a more serious tone. "I mean, are they anticipating it might happen again?"

"I've read the report and from what I understand is yes it's done and over with. Some kind of chip" He shakes his head as he picks up his drink and sips it before settling it back down. He runs his finger along the rim, sighing "I .. just wish I remembered." He mutters with a shrug. "And no, they don't think it'll happen it again."

Standing, having finished his tea, Senka packs his things away and makes to leave. He nods to the pair of you without interrupting.

Aelia arrives from Promenade - Section A.

Entering the bar, Aelia casts an amused, almost imperious look around the room before settling down to observe the customers, a slight smile playing at the corners of her mouth.

Aelia leaves for Promenade - Section A.
The door leading to Promenade slides closed.

Muireann nods softly. "That's good to hear. I can imagine it'd be difficult to go through life without knowing if you're going to wake up suddenly somewhere else with blood on your hands." She frowns softly, then picks up her wine, taking a small sniff and then sipping at the fine liquid.

"It is, actually. Especially when your loss spans beyond the incident and covers so much loss that you don't know who your friends are." Shintu says in a sigh. He looks down at the glass again, shrugging "Only thing I can do is move on, relearn and just do what i'm good at." He says with a smile.

Aelia arrives from Promenade - Section A.

Glancing between you, Aelia seems to come to a decision as she walks over to the Orion. "You're Murieann, right?"

"It must be terrible for you," Muireann replies to Shintu and takes another sip of her wine. Just as she does, Aelia addresses her. "Oh, yes, I am. How can I help you?"

Aelia smiles. "My employer--that would be the tailor, Vrillak--wanted me to tell you that he's now taking after hours consultations."

Shintu glance up to Aelia quietly, saying nothing as the two women converse.

Muireann nods softly to Aelia. "Please let him know that I'll be there soon. How long will he be in?"

Aelia says, "I'm not entirely sure. The tailoring business can be ... unpredictable.""

The Ferengi comes back over, settling the plates infront of the respective parties before walking off

"Well, please let Mister Vrillak know that I'll be in after lunch." Muireann smiles softly to the woman.

Shintu quietly splits the sandwich in half. After which, he takes a fry of his plate and eats it.

After Aelia leaves, Muireann shrugs softly. "I'm surprised he bothered me during lunch. But not a problem, I suppose. Worry not, I'm not rushing the meal. It's bad for digestion to rush anyhow." Winking, she breathes in the scent of turkey and cranberry together. "This is going to be delicious," she replies.

The Terran gives her a soft smile, tilting his head a little as he finishes another fry "Well, i've always been one to savor a meal. Eighteen years in Starfleet teaches you to do that." He says with a grin as he picks up the sandwich and takes a bite of it.

Muireann joins in the action, picking up hers and taking a good bite of the Thanksgiving meal between two slices of bread. After a good bite, chew, swallow session, she takes a sip of wine to wash it down. "Just as delicious as I anticipated." After a moment, she inquires, "So, why leave Starfleet, by the way? I'm just curious."

"I served two major wars. The Freedom Wars and the Tzenkethi war. Between the two wars and constantly warding off pirates and pleading for a check, I retired." Shintu says softly after he finished his bite. He takes another bite to eat, chews and swallows. "No complaints, I loved it." He adds, hmming "What about you? Always been a shop keeper?"

"No, just within the past six months. I figured I'd do it after graduating from secondary school, and while I was studying remotely for University," Muireann replies, taking another sip of wine. "I'm currently studying mechanical engineering. I might get a more mobile job later in that line of work." And then she takes that break to take another bite of her sandwich.

Shintu went to take another bite before pausing "Mechanical engineering huh? Sounds up my alley. Most of my service was in engineering, even post Starfleet. What area of engineering are you looking into?" He asks, bringing the sandwich up and takes a bite, then another to finish the sandwich and chews it quietly.

"As I said, mechanical, mostly. I prefer gears to wires whenever possible. My hobby is in ancient clockworks, probably stemming from my Steampunk obsession." The orion woman grins widely. "But I'm pretty capable with modern tech. I often find it a good exercise of my abilities if I can apply ancient tech to modern conveniences. I'm currently working on a clockwork floor vacuum." Muireann takes yet another bite, gently chewing the food.

"Well then." Shintu says softly "If you ever wish to learn something more challenging, hit me up." He says after swallowing his food. "I don't mind teaching what I know, if you wish to learn more than mechanical clockwork engineering." He says with a soft smile.

"Oh, I am. Daystrom Institute keeps me busy in my studies. Clockworks are just a hobby." Muireann smiles. "But I'll hit you up on that sometime." She takes another sip of wine.

Shintu leans back as he slides the plate back a little. He gives her a soft smile, his head nodding "Daystrom is a good place learn." He says lightly.

The door leading to Promenade slides open.
Williams arrives from Promenade - Section A.
The door leading to Promenade slides closed.

Shintu is quietly conversing with Muireann towards the back half of the bar at a table for two. He is leaning casually back, a plate of half eaten food infront of him while the other eats her plate.

"I just know I don't want to go into Starfleet," Muireann comments. "I've had enough of Starfleet growing up. I love the service to death, but I think I've had my fill, especially with my mother still in service." She starts work on the second half of her sandwich.

Shintu nods slowly hmming "Well, you could always join a civilian service company. Shokai Industries could use another good engineer." He says idly before asking "Your mom was in the service?" He inquires calmly.

Emily enters the bar, orders a drink and waves to Muireann and Shintu before settling at a table off to the side.

Muireann corrects with a smile, "Is in the service still, actually. A Captain at this point. She keeps busy. I personally grew up on Spacedock, so I had the fleet all around me for some time." Seeing the wave her direction, she offers one in return, then goes back to her sandwich. Just before taking a bite, she adds, "I'd rather not work for Shokai at the moment. No offense for Shokai, but it'd get in the way of my studies."

ahs, nodding slowly as he listens to her. As Muireann waves, Shintu glances to reciever of the wave and sees Williams. A fond smile crosses his as he gives her a half salute of a wave before looking back to Muireann "It's okay. As I said, anything I can help with let me know." He stands and settles some cash on the table; more then enough to pay for the two meals "I actually need to run. Have something to review and I'm late on it" He says with a frown. He leans over and plants a kiss on the Orions cheek "And thank-you for the assistance earlier" He whispers before moving towards the exit. "Afternoon Williams. A pleasure seeing you." He says to her with a very warm smile.

Emily furrows and raises her brow at the kiss, " You too." She says looking athim.

Muireann smiles back up to Shintu from her seat. "And I'll do what I can to continue my side," she replies in hushed tones to the man. "Have a good day, and thank you for lunch."

Shintu leaves for Promenade - Section A.
The door leading to Promenade slides closed.

Muireann takes another bite of her meal, nearly finishing her sandwich, and she starts on a few of the fries. Her eyes keep on the doorway with a hope that the poor guy will be okay.

"Did I miss something?" Emily asks quietly from her table.

"No, no, it's fine," Muireann replies as she takes a sip of her wine. "He's mostly just catching up with things after the incident."

"Incident?" Her brow raises.

"You haven't read the news? Since he attacked Commodore Kainon." Muireann finishes her food and just takes another sip of her drink.

"Oh that," Emily nods, "Yeah that was ages ago now though."

"Like I said, he's just catching up with things after the incident," Muireann replies. Finishing off her drink, she stands from her seat, letting the servers bus her table. "On that note, I need to get going to check back on my shop. Have a good evening."

"You too," Emily offers a smile, still slightly confused at the kiss she'd seen.

The young Orion gives a smile and wave, then steps out of Morn's into the Promenade.
