'''Holo-Rahman:''' One move and she's dead.
no edit summary
'''''Author's Note:''' This version below includes a little bit of the ending from [https://groups.google.com/d/msg/sb118-garuda/gtty1eX1U7U/0jhk5ljsXEoJ "One was bad enough"] to set the scene for "Heartbreaker" Parts 1 & 2. My favorite part of this sim is when poor Tristam sees Rahman's image flicker. Seems the little homicidal hologram is quite persistent herself.''
'''Core:''' I can't work with *two* of you-
<nowiki>::</nowiki>In one swift move, the second Rahman snaked her arm around Alora's neck, a phaser - out of nowhere - pressed into the skin of her neck.
<nowiki>::</nowiki>As a Rodulan, Tristam knew little to no violence. Sure, cursing and swearing were a common thing, used during sadness, frustration and anger. Physical violence was uncommon from where he came from - hence, almost failing combat classes, weapons classes, and more. He understood that they were a part of the galaxy, but why they were entirely necessary at all escaped him
<nowiki>::</nowiki>Now, in this moment, Tristam almost crumpled into a ball as he watched Alora become a Rahman's captive. He was back in another hostage situation.::
'''Core:''' Roshanara, *listen to me*. I'm not going to *do* anything to threaten you - I *can't* do anything to threaten you. Alora was only being my hands - if you need a hostage, take *me*. As the ''Garuda''’s Chief Engineer, I'm more valuable than she is.
