: : : : : : Marian stiffened as she stood up. Her mother's case wasn't hard to find out. Once you knew she was deceased and looked up her name, it was all there. She moved over to the table carrying her drink in one webbed hand. "Yes, I have found more information. Unfortunately there is no direct evidence, so it will never go to trial. I'm still missing pieces of it, but I have decided to let it be. I know enough now, and that is all I can hope for," she said quietly, her mood having shifted. That weight that she carried, that was borne of invoking power she never wanted to have sat there. She invoked the Rite and although it had accomplished things and brought out some of the truth, she lost her chance to have true justice for her mother. A hard price but one that in the end she had been willing to pay. Marina sat down at the table and sipped the drink before setting it down.

"Very well, what if we took it a different direction, since we can not prove the guilty murdered your mother, what if we set about to find and prove they did something else, it is not direct justice for your mother, but likely something we can accomplish with enough persistence. You would be surpised how inventive, a lowly El Tee can be with the right backing. I feel it is something that needs to be done, I dislike when people get away with things they should have been sent away for, I am retired now, and no longer have to eat the for the good of the Federation flavoring put on most of the bull cockey I had eat in the service. And since I am old, I am allowed to be odd and eccentric now..." He flashed her a smile once again. He could be pleasant company at times.

: : : : "They are not getting away with anything, I assure you," Marina replied. "But it is very complicated and now in the hands of the King of Zalda." She did not wish to share more info than she had to with him and Marina wasn't entirely sure how much he knew.

: : : Alexander nodded, he was skilled at reading people, and decided she likely did not want to talk about it any further, "Very well we shall leave it to King of Zalda then." He turned his attention toward the meal, he was assured there was peices to the puzzle of her mother's death that he did not have. He decided he would make some more quiet inquiries later, but did not hold out much hope to find any new tidbits. "hope you enjoy the meal, I tried to find recipies for Authentican Zaldan cuisine in the replicator system, but I had to have them sent in so I do not know how true to orginal they may be."

: : "I've only had non-replicated Zaldan food twice when I was on the homeworld. My father was never much of a cook and my mother was very good at it, so we ate whatever she made. She did cook Zaldan dishes occasionally but without access to unreplicated ingredients, it's not quite the same," Marina commented, curious what he was going to serve.

: Alexander Smiled as a steward laid the first course on the table, "I thought we start with a simple light Seaweed salad, sprinkled with smoked Kryll shrimp and a vingrette made with Zaldan Heirloom berry wine, and Sea Cucumber oil." Alexander lifted his fork and nodded his head towards the dish. "i hope you enjoy"

"Looks very good," Marina said approvingly as she eyed the salad. It had been awhile since she had had berry wine in anything. "Your research skills are clearly adept." she offered.
She took her fork and speared one of the shrimp, twirling it in the vinaigrette before scooping a bit of seaweed with it. Popping the mouthful into her mouth, she chewed, allowing the flavours to mingle and savouring the lovely flavours. If there was one thing she learned growing up, it was to appreciate good food. Swallowing, she nodded. "This is very good. The smoked prawns are clearly from the Northern seas."
