"They were surprisingly friendly, until they brought up..." "...Politics," Kitsu finished, not wanting to give up too many details. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- "So...?" "They are being used as slaves for the entertainment of their human oppressors! Are you not to be seeing how vrong that is!?" "There are slaves on Aenaria, and there are slaves here. It's not like there's much difference." "That is not being the point! How vould you be liking it if someone made slave of you, yah?" "No one *wants* to be a slave, but that's how the world is." "But that can all be changed! The era of slavery can be ended!" "Look, I'm all for freedom and all, but what about a person's right to property?" "PROPERTY!?" ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Not having mentioned any of the above conversation, Kitsu continued, "The discussion got pretty heated. You know what they say; Never discuss politics or religion with friends, especially around alcohol. Frankly, I don't even know how the whole conversation started." "Yeah, but you better bet they'll know damn well how it ended," Keaton added. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- In a back alley in Littleroot, a Seviper-naga slid off a wall. She landed with a thud on the back of a severely singed antromorphic Walrein in a pile of garbage. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- "It did end rather messily," Kitsu admitted. "Suffice it to say, I don't think we'll be returning to Littleroot Town anytime soon."
