What Do You Do With a Rabid Dog?

"Threaten to take my ship, will you?" Skari growled as she walked over and kicked the all-but-incapacitated Houk, "You're not nearly scary enough, you dumb f**k."
Skadge made some kind of pleading sound as she raised her blasters and unloaded until there was nothing in front of her but corpse. Her lip curled, "There are days I love my job."
Mako pulled out a datapad and punched a few inquires in. "Hey, looks like this guy has a few bounties out on him."
"Figures. I doubt I'm the only one who wanted him dead as soon as I met him. Alright, let's get packed up and get these guys out of here. Payday today!"
"Can you imagine this guy on our crew?"
Skari snorted, "Over my dead body."
By the way, I think it's excellent cathartic therapy to write out scenes that REALLY did not give you the options your character actually would have taken. It's probably why there are so many SW stories out there. At any rate, I feel better now, cause this is what actually happened in my head - the lump of gray lard hanging out on my ship is just a bad dream.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
