The room stank of dirty dishes and grime and garbage.
The humidity alone permeated the dishwashers every pore clogging them, Making it impossible to even feel cool for 1 solitary second of the entire 18 hour shift PoXiE put in 7 days a week 365 days a year ,Yes that was right ,365 lousy hard days a year in this sweatshop they called a kitchen in the back part of a sleezy bar and grill on Exodus VIII.

He had been won as a child, Gambled away by a no good father who gambled all his wordly possessions away over a drunken, clouded, half hazed with alchohol lifetime.

PoXiE never knew what it was like to have someone to talk to, or worry about him, The only life he had ever known were the sometimes daily beatings from the short fat smelly owner of this caldron of sin who would feed his Hell Hounds the best Gallante Beef money could buy, But for PoXiE , all he ever got was watered down porridge and scraps he fought the rats out in the rear alley for every day.

The only thing he knew were the drunken shoremen and the prostitutes who worked at the bar and grill who would occasionally cuff or hit him too, with cries of Faster you dog or hurry you worthless boy……

The Only pleasure he had in his miserable life as a slave was after the establishment closed he would sneak under the huge old sink and squeeze through a gap in the wall.
This was the old furnace ventilation system, It hadnt been used in over 20 years.
It branched out under all the rooms of the building and one shaft of it even went to a grate that led to what looked like part of a old sewer system.

Here he could listen to all that was going on above him and play without being bothered.

One night after closing three very clean cut men (unusual for that bar) knocked on the front door and the owner let them right in.

He dallied by the doorway and tried to see what was going on in the dimness of the old bar.

His master noticed him and came over and slapped him hard across the face in anger proclaiming Go To Sleep! This doesn’t concern you brat,

PoXiE ran under the sink and with tears streaming down his face squeezed himself into his little private playland below the building floors.

Shimmying and squirming throught the ductwork he crawled until he heard voices above him.

… sure of this.

Yes sir, I am very sure they come in every third month at 6PM on the 15th like clockwork and have a meeting in my back room.

Now Why would the Sinister organization choose your place to hold their meetings in the region?

Sir if you havent noticed this is the perfect place, No-One questions anything .. Why you could knife a man drinking next to you at the bar and nary a head would even turn to look.

Ok that all the information we need, You will be rewarded very well for this information barkeep.

PoXiE couldn’t believe his ears SINISTER?? They were Only the greatest pirate organization in the entire universe (at least to boys his age).

I Must help them somehow…


It is the third month the fifteenth day at 5:58 and PoXiE is afraid that the meeting has been cancelled when all of a sudden the front door opens and in walks 8 men in long leather coats and Jackboots .
They snap their fingers at the owner and proceed into the privacy of the backroom.

The owner sweating profusely hurries to the kitchen slaps PoXiE on the back of his head , a stinging swat that makes everything go black for a few moments and cries Hurry you waste of Air fill these pitchers with the Imported wine and bring it to me.

PoXiE hurries with his task and runs intom the backroom with the wine, In his haste tripping ans spilling a little on the floor.
His master cries out and slaps him and starts berating him for spilling the wine and get so angry he raises his hand to slap him again when it is grabbed by the Meanest toughest of the group.
Bartender if you strike this boy again I will strike you is that understood?
Yes sir says the owner bowing and sweating, Boy Please wipe up the spilled wine he asks, then come to the kitchen and bowing once again he leaves.

PoXiE seeing his chance Blurts out You are Sinister arent you?
The men laugh and the one who defended him says Why Kid what gave you that idea?

Because sir I heard my master talking to 3 men 2 weeks ago and he was telling them all about you including that you would be here at exactly this time.

The men look sharply at each other and the leader finally nods and they stand and open their long coats and tie them open behind them pulling out impressive looking weapons as they finish this task.

All of a sudden there is a lot of screeching and sirens in front of the bar and a PA drones “SINISTER Lay down your weapons and come out with your hands on your heads.

The back door quick orders the leader.
As they open the backdoor a hail of pulse fire richochets all around the jamb and wall of the door.

Boss we are trapped says one of the other members.
Well says the leader we go down gunning , Ok boys lets Cowboy up and see how many we can take with us.

PoXiE not wanting to see the only people who have ever shown him kindness in his entire life die Exclaimed Wait I Know another way out of here.

The leader says Show us kid Quick.

PoXiE leads them to the sink and points to the narrow gap under it .
Damn its too small for us and the damn Confed maggots are jamming our transmissions so we cant call in help.


I could call for help sir just give me the radio and show me how to use it.

The leader quickly shows PoXiE how to use it and what to say and shoves him toward the sink.

Its all up to you now kid he stated as PoXiE squeezed through the narrow gap and down into the vent system.

PoXiE crawled and slithered untill he came to the grate.
He had never been past this but determined to help his new friends he started squeezing between the bars,
At one point he thought he was stuck but then the blood from scraping through actually helped lubricate him and he finally pushed through and lay gasping on the other side.

He was so tired and out of energy and felt he would never move again when from above he heard a huge explosion of gunfire and hearing this he staggered to his feet,
Making his way through god knows what floating past him Rats gnawing at his skin he walked for what seemed a eternity until he saw a faint shaft of light ahead.

Running now, amazed at the sudden energy couring through him he made it to the shaft of light and saw a ladder and climbed up it.

Dazzling sunlight from the two suns blinded him for a few moments and when he finally was able to see he saw he was 4 blocks from the bar.
Grabbing the radio he punched in the right code and said into it.

There is a fire we need to put it out send all the firemen you can spare address is ……..

Five minutes later a Darkness filled the sky and and a Ground assault ship opened fire on the Concord ground troops surrounding the Sinister leaders. As Sinister shock troopers started raining from the sky.
Concord who had been the Hunter five minutes before was now the prey.
After what seemed like a eternity the gunfire began to taper off then silence blessed silence.

PoXiE saw the massive ship rise high and disappear …. and with a great sadness in his heart began to cry for the first time he actually felt loss.


As he turned to leave he saw the group of men who had entered his masters establishment standing shoulder to shoulder in a line directly across from him.
Hey kid spoke the leader, What are your plans.

Sire I jknow no other life so I will return to the one I had since that life is better then none at all.

Umm kid Im afraid that’s going to be a bit hard said the leader Holding up the severed head of PoXiE’s master.

I have a much better idea why don’t you come and join us we owe you our lives and I am sure you have proved your loyalty to us all.

PoXiE knew his ship had Finally just come in…..

I and some of my corp have written many such stories on Summit forum and EVE Library , its refreshing to see someone doing it on this forum.

My only question is why are you writing these nice pieces of work about players who care very little for roleplay (which is shame) and in fact I have seen openly ridicule it ?
I have first hand had experience with these players/characters you write of and TBH the extent of their RP is to smack talk like 12yr olds on local channels ......

I like your writing ...but pick some subjects worthy of your time

Lol that is strange. I just *downloaded* and watched Tears Of The Sun (perfect DVD quality) and at the end it says "The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is for Good Men to Do Nothing...

Edmund Burke" at the end. First thing I saw when I came on the forums was that, weird..

so tell me what do you do for a living?

--deleted---

i don't see the point, you can't speak to people when all they do is seek escapism.

you don't deal with reality by trying to run away from it

You forgot the part where his father sold him into slavery, and him having to seek counseling after in SinC due to the influx of daddy jokes.
