"Benjamin might be an even stranger inclusion than Matt, yeah," Seb agreed. "Apparently the mayor specifically requested him? But he's not even from Rattlewater, so it doesn't make sense in the first place for him to be titled a 'civilian'. So much about all this is strange..."

“You might be onto something there. I’m still real confused about Benjamin’s deal... if he’s so essential to our search party, then why didn’t he even tell us what he’s here for? Or what title he’s got?” Bennett shakes his head. “It all gives me a bad feeling, but there’s other things to worry about now.”

"Maybe we've been right in thinking that the mayor is up to something shady," Seb suggested quietly. "His choice of which Star Citizens should go on this expedition was suspicious; maybe his choice of who should be Star Citizens in the first place was also motivated by some larger plot."

“I hope we’re right about that.” Bennett crosses his arms.

“No, everything was pretty standard. As you’d expect from a drunk like him. The hard part is always getting the right chance...” Bennett replies in his usual tone, calm and relaxed, much unlike Seb. “It’s not like it matters at this point, since that damn fool somehow became a Star Citizen.”

"He's abrasive to everyone, so I doubt anyone would take any accusations of his seriously," Seb agreed. "And... maybe you're right about him being too drunk to remember it properly. Hopefully it's the same for him remembering me too."

He wasn't sure whether he should respond to what Bennett said, and he didn't particularly relish going into details about the bounty hunter's side of their 'work', but silence wasn't an appealing option either. "Um, was anything about that time different from the... usual? He doesn't seem like someone who'd have been particularly able to defend himself or anything like that."

“I... sure hope not.” Bennett finally days after a long pause. “He’s a damn drunk anyways, bet he thinks he just had a bad trip or some nonsense. Not like many would trust his word anyways, with how loud and aggressive he is.”

“...still have no idea how I even screwed that up.” Bennett mutters just loud enough to hear.

"Not really, to be honest. Just as I was about to clean up as usual, he woke up in a panic, pushed me aside and rushed off," Seb said, recalling the scene. "Is there any chance he noticed you at all back then?"

“Huh, so you really get around with your cleaning, do you? Pretty impressive if you ask me. I’ve pretty much heard of the same people, don’t really know any of em personally.”

“Ah right, Matt. You got any idea what the hell happened with that damn drunk?”

"Oh, I know of a fair few people here. My cleaning duties take me around the town," Seb explained. "I've seen Oliver and Lavender perform, I've passed Shizune by a few times, my cleaning route takes me by Ciro's sushi shop and I've eaten there on occasion, I'd heard of Charlie and Brandy, and Ivan's patrols mean he crosses paths with me sometimes. And then there's Nail... I really have no idea what to make of him. I've heard all kinds of strange rumours, and he sometimes offers me advice while I'm cleaning. Really I just try to avoid him.

"As for Daniel, sorry, I got muddled for a moment there. Daniel's alright, I see him occasionally while sweeping roads. I actually meant, um, Matt."

“Guess it makes sense, you’re pretty young, and everyone else is pretty older than you.” Bennett nods to himself a few times. “Though you’ve heard of Oliver, Ivan, and Lavender before yeah? I guess that’s just assumed. So why does Daniel get a special mention?”

Bennett waits a few seconds before adding “If you’re comfortable sharing, of course.”

Seb shook his head. "Only Klifford, really, and that's just because he's the doctor I visit for checkups. And... well, there's Daniel I suppose," he added awkwardly. "I don't know if he recognised me, though. He hasn't really treated me any different to everyone else."

“A heck of a lot, actually. So it’s shocking to see her so close with someone like Charlotte...” Bennett lets out a sigh. He seemed to be content with just venting at Sebastian.

“I guess I need to get a chance to ask her about it later... We haven’t really seen each other in ages, though. About a year before this damn expedition.’ Might be a little awkward...”

“Say, did you know anyone else before we got trapped in this cave?” Bennett seems eager to change the subject away from Brandy.

"Um... I really wouldn't know," Seb replied diplomatically. Telling Bennett anything other than what he wanted to hear was at the far end of what he ever wanted to do. "But Brandy seems to trust her. How well do you trust Brandy?"

“Yeah, that’s what she does from what I can tell.” Bennett nods. “I’m surprised Brandy is working with her and seemingly okay with what she does, much less the damn mayor.” Bennett frowns and spits on the ground.

“What she does makes me sick. Stealing from the rich and just letting those less fortunate get by without putting any work in? What kind of world do we live in where people embrace that garbage?”

"Charlie? Um... I don't rightly know what she 'does' in the first place, to be honest," Seb admitted, turning back to Bennett but then looking at his feet. "She steals from passing vehicles and gives it to the town? And the mayor's completely fine with that? Isn't that just... a crime? I was surprised to hear Brandy supports her actions, honestly."

“Or... we could...” Bennett stops himself. “Eh, never mind.”

Bennett catches Seb eyeing the hideout. “Didn’t know Brandy and Robin Hood were all about using this cave as well. Hell, I didn’t even know Brandy knew her.” Bennett shrugs. “Hey... Do you think what Charlotte does is any good?”
