Captain's Log 6.29.2505
Brody said he could get me clear for 5K credits, and we all know I ain't got that kind of money. Then he offered to take a share of Tempest for a total of 12K. I talked about it with Ellie, Wally and Qin, and I decided I'd rather sell half of my boat to Qin. Hell, I probably owe him at least half of the old girl by now anyway. So I sold half share of Tempest to Qin for 12K. It's only about a quarter of what she's worth, but like I said - I owe Kit at least half again what he paid.
So now I got a full partner in the boat. We're taking the new registration that Badger's getting us, and saving it for another emergency. I paid Brody 8K to stay on his good side for jobs and such, and he'll be scrubbing my reputation. I get to keep my name, half my boat and my freedom. It ain't a bad deal. Sure I dyed my hair brown, but Qin says it looks better this way.
Qin and I are each going to take 1.5 share of our cuts from now on, Tempest - who is being renamed to Tempest's Shadow to honor Qin, Ellie and Alexi's home world. Tempest still gets a full share as do the rest of the crew. Finacially it'll probably be better. Right now I got 6K in Alliance credits. It's the most cashy money I ever had in my life. Wondering if I can get my leg fixed for that, or if I can just buy me a new one. That's something to consider. It would be nice to be able to run away when I need to for a change.
