The Summerlands are full of dangers and delights just outside the range of the Weyr itself. What can be found in these areas?

Well, any interest this woman had in dealing with Kaladin went out the window. Cornelia at least seemed to be handling it how she expected stuffy dragonriders to. Not like Kaladin had anything resembling authority. Or tact. She wouldn't want to really deal with someone like that... ever.

So, staring Cornelia straight in the eye, she decked Kaladin as hard as she could.

"Well, technically we are already usin' the proper trade routes in the North. We're not assholes." She never broke eye contact, and Kaladin was never given a further thought. "But sure, we can be more... discrete in our activities."

Surely that was not the right answer but the pirate captain did not seem to care.

TW: Blood

Kaladin was... not expecting to be punched. Sure, these were criminals, but he hadn't expected them to be so overt about their innate savagery. Most would try to hide it, pretend they were innocents who deserved protecting, who were worth trusting. Not that he'd found that much anyone was actually worth trusting, regardless of the front they put on.

The blow to his face staggered him and he dropped into a crouch, hands pressed up to his nose. Blood dripped from between his fingers, and he closed his eyes momentarily to try to dismiss the pain.

He didn't listen to the pirate's speech. He didn't really even hear it. All he knew was that she had started this fight, but he was going to end it. He flung himself at her with a yell, any sort of dignity thrown to the wind.

Normally Daiya wasn't the type to get into these sorts of fights... BUT he also didn't need some upstart trying to get himself killed. Not like this anyway, not to put more fruitless and pointless strain between him and his new chums-to-be.

With a deep sigh, he stomps forward, doing what he can to drag Kaladin off and away the pirate. "That's enough outta you. Daisk! He turned to see his wher just slapping the ground in amusement.

Haw haw haw haw! Look at him squirm. She chortled, stepping closer should the brat start getting to be too much. Let grab. Will sit on him. Restrain him. Stupid head.

The woman doesn't move, though her men certainly move up to form a barrier between her and Kaladin. She continues to focus on Cornelia, clearly not thinking of or worrying about Kaladin in the slightest.

"I trust the discretion will not be... a problem. You'll keep gettin' your goods, maybe even legit ones." She shrugged slightly. "We could use a proper hold, if we were to get you the right materials..."

"That'll do it." he mused quietly, leaning against Duoth.

You saw that coming a... a mile away. Duoth murmured, repeating the phrase Shouta was thinking. You're right, it was pretty obvious this is where things were heading.

That's why we're here, for the most part. But Cornelia has things under control it looks like.

Cornelia wished for nothing more in that moment than to applaud the pirate leader. She was sure that she was not the only rider to feel this way. But that would...not be wise. Even if it would be thoroughly enjoyable.

She bit back a smirk, quickly schooling her face to neutrality. Before she could get another word in, she had to half-heartedly move to restrain Kaladin. But the pirates had that under control. Well, they were loyal to their leader. Which was good, if part of the entire problem in the first place.

The need for supplies outweighed the other considerations at this point. And the pirates were the best she had on that front. An organized, coherent band of competent people was better than Cornelia had at her own disposal, for Faranth's sake. "Your increased discretion with regards to your continued help would be greatly appreciated. Once we have gotten on our feet, we may see about assistance with a Hold. I make no promises - I would have to discuss further with the Steward, Molly, who speaks for the weyrfolk."
