Zerbo was beside himself. He was losing status on OED and worse, he was losing profits and status on Ferengar because of his lack of business on OED. He didn’t know why Hoka was doing so well even after spending trillions of his own money. He knew Hoka had to be given certain contracts and permits that he applied for himself. Today he was going to get an answer hopefully.

Arriving at the Governor’s office for his 4pm appointment He waited on a lounge chair until he was called.

Dai’Mon Ress Zerbo First Assistant

Kenzo had anticipated this meeting, albeit to the Dai’mon’s credit he hadn’t expected it quite this soon. So when the appointment had been made, Hyr7shi ensured that all his due diligence… and some special forensic accountants… were done and poised for action.

When the receptionist pinged his desk console, Kenzo took a breath and then pressed the icon allowing the doors to his office to open.

“Dai’mon, do come in. It has been some time, has it not. Please… do be seated.” and he indicated a seat in front of the desk with a small step-stool next to it. Hyrushi himself sat down without waiting for Zerbo to be seated, and locked obsidian eyes on the Ferengi. “To what do I owe the pleasure of your visit, sir?” he said, even though his tone indicated that pleasure wasn’t the foremost emotion in him.

Hyrushi, Gov.

Bump

“About time!” He muttered as he walked in. The lack of respect in tone was not missed by the fat Ferengi. “Indeed” He stated as he stepped up on the stool and onto the chair. Glaring at the Governor. “You can start by telling me why I am losing profits to Hoka! I know full well that you have been giving him contacts that I specifically asked for! Worse yet, the Grand Nagus has summoned me back to Fengar! No doubt due to the lack of profits a Ferengi in my position is supposed to make! My position in The Alliance and my life is at stake here! Sure I make trillions with the Trade Station that we built but it is not enough! Not enough to keep for myself and not enough to send back to the Grand Nagus!” He was done and just at there huffing and glaring.

Dai’Mon Ress Zerbo First Assistant to the Grand Nagus

Hyrushi leaned back and steepled his fingers together in front of him. “You know Dai’Mon, ever since you and I first met I felt as if there was some kind of… miscommunication… between us. So I will try to be as direct as I can. Yes, I know you are losing vast sums to your aide Hoka. Yes, he and I have many agreements that you are not privy to. And yes, I know about your summons… not good for business at all. And yes… your position and your life are very much hanging in the balance of what you decide over the next few days and weeks. Oh, and I know you aren’t making trillions Dai’Mon… I have access to your tax records. If you are making trillions, you have failed to claim much in your statements.” and he looked at the Ferengi for a long moment.

Hyrushi, Governor

Zerbo glared at him for awhile then barked out. “You! How do you have access to my tax records and how can you possibly know about my being summoned back to Ferengar!” Then a look of realization came across face. “You have been playing me from the start. Getting what you want for your precious little community here by feeding me a couple contracts here and there.”

He sit back into the chair and smiled crudely. “You are pretty talented for a Hew-Mon. The Federation did right appointing you. So tell me then Governor. “Why Hoka over me? I am the one that has the power in our caste system. I am the one with the most wealth. So again, why choose a welp of a Ferengi over top echelon?”
