Mehatoor VI - 24th Imperial Crusade Logistic Support
July 17th YC123
Thanks for dragging me along for a walk on the promenade, Junip. I do feel more serene now.
Hmhm. You’re welcome, Zak. Maybe you should listen to your sibling’s advice more often.
Hey! Juni! Look! There she is!
The little Achur running towards us. There!
…The one with the white face?
White face? Oh…yeah. She didn’t have that when I last saw her. But I don’t see any other little Achur running towards us. Do you?
[sigh] Noooo. But who is she? Do you know her?
…Wow, did you see that!? She was looking right at us!
…Well, she passed us quite closely and we were looking at her…and if someone looked at me the way you look at her…
…In the eyes of a god…
…Zak!? What are you on about?! Who is she?!
Hm? Oh, sorry… That was the Achurunner.
The Achurunner. That’s what they call her. I told you about her!
Yes! You know, Juni, for someone who insists that I listen to my sibling you certainly don’t seem to listen a lot to your’s.
…I’m listening now…
Ok…so…her name is Yun-Hee Yubari, and she’s a capsuleer that came to live here a couple months ago. Word is that-
Wait, she’s an empyrean!? Aaand her name is Juni? Is that why you’ve sometimes been calling me Juni lately?
…Unbelievable. You and your obsession with capsuleers… No wonder I was not listening when you told me about her. You ramble on about them all the time. And what did you just say? In the eyes of a god? If you say stuff like that around dad, no wonder he is so on your case.
…You’re a lot like him, Juni.
[sigh]…Ok…Zakara…I’m sorry. If you really find this interesting…tell me about that… Yubari the Achurunner. See? I listen. So why do they call her that?
…Wait, yeah, don’t look at me like that. I think I can answer that myself. I guess she runs a lot?
Yes. Like…for a couple hours almost every day. If we stayed here long enough, we might see her run past again…although maybe not now she has seen us looking at her. I’ve read she’s a bit of a recluse and rarely leaves her ship when she’s not running.
…Okaaay. So what does she do here apart from running? The usual capsuleer stuff?
Glad you asked! See, that is what most of the speculation is about. Word is her ship, a mere shuttle, rarely leaves the dock and that she mostly uses it as a home. As to why she is here… Does she remind you of another capsuleer I told you about? One that also lives here?
…Uhm…wait. I think I know this one…
Admittedly she looks a bit less like her now she has that Caldari white face, but she used to look quite a bit like her.
…Uhm…that other Achur empyrean…uhm…Aria something?
Right! Aria Jenneth. So you do indeed listen to me sometimes. So…the gossip that goes round lately is that Aria is the reason why Yun-Hee is here…some even going as far to suggest that they are in love with each other. Eggers as well, that heretic Nauplius even asked her…Yun-Hee, on the local system comms if she is in love with Aria. She denied it, but that even capsuleers are having such suspicions themselves just adds fuel to that rumor.
Who cares what that man thinks! He’s a … psychopath!
…Be that as it may, it’s actually one of the more plausible theories I’ve read. I mean, I’ve not read much that can be seen as contrary evidence. Whether they are in love or not, Aria is the best explanation I’ve seen for Yun-Hee being here. I mean, why else did they look so much alike?
…Are you sure you’re not just being a bit racist?
[sigh] …Alright…let me see if I can find a picture…
Here, see?! This is Yun-Hee, what she looked like not too long ago, and that is Aria.
…Hmm, ok. They do look kind of alike in those pics. Anyway, shall we go back home, Zak? I think we’ve been away long enough for dad to calm down, and I’m getting hungry. I hope we’ll have dinner soon.
Sure. Oh, by the way, did I tell you about…
