"Just don't damage the House of Oxen's reputation." After getting an annoyed glare from Koris, she decided to let that part of the conversation go: "Are you going to primarily market to downtowners?"

"I'm going to empathise with them at the least and try to get the downtowners to understand that I want to help them. A real victory would be if I could get more uptowners to feel sympathy for them too."

"Good luck with that."

Both of their devices ringed simultaneously. Nikhita checked her wrist computer while Koris pulled out his tablet. After a skim read of what they had been sent both looked at each other with surprise.

"Did you just get a message from Lysander?" Nikhita asked as they halted just outside of the shuttle hangar.

"The one about his birthday bash?" Koris smirked. "Oh yes, yes I did."

Nikhita looked at the message again: "Hooray, it says we can each bring one guest… Now I have to figure out something to wear before tomorrow night."
