The Transcript For This Page
Seamus and Peng-Bo Shen in the drawing room, with the holoscreen still up.The atmosphere is tense.
Seamus: Mr. Peng-Bo, this is the second time you've threatened me and frankly it's getting tiresome.
Seamus: You risk a major incident between HuoJinGong and S&H Resolutions.
Medium close-up on Peng-Bo.
Peng-Bo: Not really. I know how your L-5 – how do you call them, Dispute Resolution Organizations? – operate.
Peng-Bo: All I need do is say that you assaulted me, or attempted thievery, and a man in my position would not be challenged.
Looking past Seamus at Peng-Bo, who is now looking disconerted.
Seamus (OP): A man in your position would know Lee Wei-Ling, supreme adjudicator for HuoJinGong, yes?
Peng-Bo: Yes …
Seamus: We have been friends since we negotiated the trade treaty of 414, after the Second Mercorps War.
Medium shot of Seamus, sitting back and looking a bit smug.
Seamus: You don't live as long as I have without getting to know a lot of people.
Seamus: I rather doubt that foul play directed against me here would be easily explained away.
Two-shot of Peng-Bo and Seamus. Peng-Bo looks crestfallen.
Peng-Bo: It appears … that I have overreached here.
Peng-Bo: This seems to be a problem I have from time to time.
Seamus: So I have heard.
Looking past Seamus at Peng-Bo. Peng-Bo is brightening a bit.
Seamus: However, you need not leave here empty-handed.
Seamus: You were prepared to pay 12 million gold grams for 20 percent of an unknown project.
Seamus: What if I offered you 50 percent of a proven technology for the same amount?
In the right foreground we see the back of Xie-Po Tong re-entering the drawing room. In the left background, Peng-Bo and Seamus notice his entry.
Seamus: I can guarantee it will – ah, Mr. Tong has returned.
Peng-Bo: Tong, what is the matter?
Looking past Seamus, an ashen Tong leans shakily against the back of his chair, as Peng-Bo looks on in shock.
Tong: My cousin, Ma-Bo Nu, he ...
Tong: He has been murdered.
