[Lorian] prue stole it from her
[Lorian] and is asking me to pay
[Lorian] 10000 coins
[Lorian] for its return

[Vagile Savane] Vagile was fallen and Prue found her
[Vagile Savane] and before healing Prue searched Vagile
[Vagile Savane] and before healing Prue searched Vagile
[Vagile Savane] Vagile said don't take the broken knife it is very valuable
[Vagile Savane] and Prue did cos she said it wasn't very safe with Vagile if Vagile was going to fall all the time
[Vagile Savane] but she is only looking after it
[Vagile Savane] Vagile thinks it is a game about the coins
[Vagile Savane] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Vagile Savane
[Haengemie] Prue, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Prue] Preposterous! Slander! Libel!
[Prue] I was spending a nice evening gambling in the casino, when Captain Vagile summoned me to assist her
[Prue] I did, but I must say I was rather put out by the interuption
[Prue] I had half a mind to leave her where she lay, but she said she'd give me something valuable if I raised her.
[Prue] this? What good is a broken knife?
[Prue] I did, and she gave me a broken knife. I said "What's this? What good is a broken knife?
[Prue] She told me Lorian wanted one just like it.
[Prue] So I offered it to Lorian for a fair price
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Prue] And Lorian agreed.
[Prue] Sheesh.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Prue
[Prue] All quite legal.
[Haengemie] Lorian, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Lorian] The fact that I agreed does not make it not extortion
[Lorian] I must pay!! if Iwill have it back????
[Lorian] And it matters not how it was acquired
[Lorian] If I didn't give it!!!
[Lorian] And besides
[Lorian] it may be a game to vagile
[Lorian] she is of small mind...
[Lorian] but it is NOT a game to me
[Lorian] I cannot carry it
[Lorian] I only wish it to be in trusted hands
[Lorian] and I do NOT trust prue with it.
[Lorian] I demand that she give it to someone I designate!!!
[Lorian] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lorian
[Haengemie] Prue, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Prue] possession. law. nine tenths.
[Prue] besides, must I remind the court of Lorian's foul past?
[Prue] the blade was given for services rendered
[Prue] if Lorian gave it foolishly... well...
[Prue] hardly seems like my problem
[Prue] welcome to the big city, blondie.
