A few nights after the grand opening, the Governor’s Assistant, Sinayda Nyx, made her way to the tangqa’ Tavern. It was the newest establishment that served alcohol and fermented beverages, so it was the place to be. In truth, she was on a fact finding mission for her boss to find out what she could about the Ferengis in the Commerce of Economics.
Wanting to invite attention, but not too much, she was dressed in a black pant suit with triangular cutouts on either side of the jacket. Taking a seat at the bar, Nyx ordered a rum on the rocks, double, crossed her legs and turned the stool so she could observe the others in the room. “Excuse me, do you get many Ferengi in here?” Fixing the bartender with her cognac gaze and waited for any information.
The half-Klingon proprietor of tanqa’ Tavern filled an elegant glass goblet with ice and then rum, before depositing it on the bar top with the grace of a rampaging targ. Leaning in to face Nyx, she frowned then replied, “Quantify ‘many’? I find Ferengi to be an eager clientele for an establishment such as this. Unlike the Starfleet contingent on this planet, who I suspect have no clue what to make of me just yet.”
Around that time Daimon Hoka came out of the restroom and looked towards Nyx and walked up to her. He was dressed in a nice suit and an expensive one. She knew that suit would keep this bar operating for two months. He was obviously half her size but since she was sitting at the bar, the strain on Hokas neck wasn’t bad. He bowed to her but briefly. “Why do you not just ask one of us yourself Madame Nyx? I would summarize that a Hew-Mon such as yourself, dressed the way you do and are, and in the position you hold, would not have a problem talking to a source directly? Oh. Sorry I could not keep myself from hearing your questions.” He stated as he waved to his very large ears. “It is in the rules to always listen but it is hard not to when you have big ears.” Smiling at the He motioned for the bartender. “I to would like the rum and coke. It sounds intriguing.”
Looking back at Nyx as he climbed into the bar chair across from her. “I can suspect that you want to talk to the right Ferengi and not some peon. You want answers and not headaches. I can answer your questions Madame Nyx.” He looked at her intently but did not smile this time while waiting for his drink.
Nyx looked at the large eared male in the chair next to her. “You have made many assumptions here, Daimon Hoka.” She reached out slowly and stroked the outer edge of his right lobe. “Why do you assume I’m here for answers of some kind? Can’t I be looking for company?” Sin took a drink of rum as she waited for the Ferengi’s answer.
“It is true I made assump..........ahhhhhhhhhh”. He said as he was cut off mid sentence by her touching his ear lobe. Shaking his head. “That was a dirty trick. But I liked it. I am not a stupid being Madam Nyx and neither are you. Both of us did not get to where we are today for assuming or for being stupid. We all have our faults and motives. I am curious to know yours and I bet you might be curious to know mine. But mine will have to wait until we have the meeting with the new Governor to talk about what Daimon-Ress Zerbo and the Ferengi Alliance wants to do here. But I will state that it has to do with Rule 37. The early investor reaps the most interest. So do you want to rub my lobes more?” He grinned.
.>Mirai nodded and returned, seconds later, with the drink. “I have added it to your tab,” she informed Hokas. “But remember, defaulters on bar tabs are liable to be thrown into my fighting pits.”
The half-Klingon winked then moved off to serve another customer.

“My dear Klingon. Rule 192. Never cheat a Klingon… unless you’re sure you can get away with it. And I am very certain I will not. Besides, I am one of the wealthiest beings on this planet. I will pay my debts. Thank you for the drink.” He brought the glass to his nose to sniff it and gave an awful look but took a sip anyway. His reaction was priceless and he spat out the drink back into cup and coughed a bit before sitting it back down. “Water please!” He said with a harsh tonne but from the drink and not anger.
