Call me Sarge.
The others do.

"But do you want more?"

"Truth be told, Boss, it’s all slow going. We have a handful of contracts, but nothing substantial. Income’s—" coming from other, less than reputable sources “—tight.”

He rubbed his forehead with a sigh, trying to square away the exhaustion besides the hundreds of details he keeps track of as the days go by. Truth was, he probably wasn’t explaining himself right—overwork tended to result in that… Among other things. 

A hand through his hair, and he redirected his attention to Ruu, wiggling a finger just shy of her nose. “We just …acquired… a small tactics training division, local company. Their line was: special tactics for the local law.”

He laughed, eyes up.

"A joke, like their entire program." He huffed a chuckle as Ruu swatted at his hand, dodging her swat and wiggling again. "But they spent more on supplies than we did on acquisition. The integration was clean, we just need a, say… part time director.”

His focus went down to the kitten in his arms as Mereel extended a hand, wagging his finger in front of her face. The corner of his mouth turned upward as it swiped, wanting to get the big bad man’s finger and claim it for her own. Seems familiar.

The commando was listening. He always was. Rarely did he ever get in a trance to the point where he didn’t listen to the person addressing him and the surroundings. Old habits die hard and that habit may well die when he’s buried in the ground. Engrained. Programmed, some would say.

"Dealing with mergers, acquisitions…" Boss huffed softly before chuckling to himself, bouncing the kitten. "I never really thought I’d hear you discuss the finer points of a business deal. Never really thought any of us would be in this situation, I suppose."

"I don’t care about getting paid. Between the ambassadorship, a few advisings with C-Sec and a little on the side from Shepard as a token of good will, credits aren’t an issue. I’ll take the position as long as I can split my work between places and continue to manage things from the Normandy.

"And as long as you pay for my transportation fees."

Nu’baatir. Naturally. You know a good watering hole around here?

Quite a few, really. Just depends what kind of atmosphere you’re looking for. Seedy, shady, deadly, or calm and collected except on racing days.

"…that’s the best you can come up with?" He smirked and shook his head. "I’m kidding, of course."

"What — there’s more than everything? Shit, you gotta tell me so I can stop love it!"

"I meant specifics, di’kut. Blanket statements don’t always work on me.”

"One, that would require me to actually keep track of dates. I haven’t done that much since it makes the time I spend down here feel longer. And, two," Steve leaned in, pressing their foreheads together, "while the idea of foreign tech is exciting, I actually did it because I like giving gifts to people I love."

"Makes the time you spend here feel longer? That’s why you contact me and have me come down here." The smile on his face grew as Steve completed the kov’nyn. “And I like receiving gifts from people I love… Especially when they let me pay them back somehow.”
