Miho and Sashi watched Largo as he poured down his third beer then looked each other and smiled. Miho finally spoke, "You seem to be a lot better since the last time I saw you. Would you like to go play a game while we wait for Cammy to finish up helping Ashley with Ed?

Largo looked up as if startled, "I don't know, maybe I better go find Cammy. She's been gone for a long time now…" His voice trailed off and he looked down at his empty glass.

Sashi smiled, "She'll be fine Largo, she may be mad at us for giving you beer for breakfast though."

Largo grinned fiercely, "N3kt3r of the Gods!" All three of them laughed at his outburst in l33t. Largo leaned forward looking very serious and spoke, "I know you two aren't doing this just to be nice, all you'd have to do is put me in a room with a system and leave me. I'd be happy, I've played solo a lot during the last week. So if you have a question ask"

Miho looked into Largo's eyes and he suddenly had a strange feeling wash over him. Blinking, he felt panic starting to rise, "No! You don't have to do that! I'll tell you the truth!"

Miho's eyes narrowed, "Largo, we should all be friends. We've trusted Ping and Cammy and Ashley. I've trusted them. But they've been holding back things that are important. We want to know why."

Largo squirmed and looked around unhappily, Sashi signaled the waiter and he brought Largo another beer. "They don't want to bother you. For Ed and me things are different, we can directly interface so we know. They want keep everything as smooth as possible. They're not being bad, they're trying to be good."

Miho stared at Largo for a minute before she spoke, "Largo, you've known me for a fairly long time. We've been adversaries. I hope that we can be friends now." She took a deep breath before continuing, "I need someone to speak for us among them. Someone that can tell us what's going on so that they won't be bothered. You see the dilemma don't you? They don't want to bother us but there are things that we need to know."

Largo visibly relaxed, "Is that all? I'll be happy to help you like that. Just as long as you don't ask me to do something against Cammy."

Miho vigorously shook her head, "Oh no! I'd never ask you to do that. I just want you to help them help us."

Largo drained his beer as Sashi signaled for another. He looked at his sister and smiled. She reached over to squeeze his hand in return.

Maybe things were looking up after all..
