CEC Kharon, Deck 2, Brig
IC Time: Post Holocaust Day #107
OOC Time: Tue Aug 04 15:26:54 2009

While the larger classes of the fleet might have two separate brigs, one for officers and one for enlisted, this would not be the case on the Kharon. Three cells are packed into this small room, each containing a toilet and bed. The bars provide no privacy, possibly as an incentive to the ship's crew to stay out of this room. Done in the same drab battleship gray that the rest of the ship is, there is only a single desk to occupy this room which faces the cells. Perhaps a bit oddly, this room is almost as strictly utilitarian as the Naval Offices.

Castor Leda is in the brig, at the moment he is asleep on the bed dreaming of things long gone. He isn't snoring or talking in his sleep but rather her he is simply breathing and sleeping quietly.

Hatch opens, Salazar steps in. The MP at the desk moves to stand, and the woman leans in to talk with him quietly. A nod in exchanged, and both move over to stand in front of Castor's cell. There's a rattle before the locks are disengaged, and the MP holds open the door while the S2 steps inside. "Leda, look sharp." She stands in the middle of the cell, hands clasped behind her back.

Leda wakes up with a, "Huh?" He then looks over at Salazar in her blues as he takes a moment to jump to his feet as locks are disengaged. He studies Salazar as he waits to see what will happene next because it could be the airlock or it could be freedom. Instead. he takes a breath as he waits to hear out his fate.

There's a moment of silence that is fairly tense, not for Sal, you understand. Possibly for Leda, particularly when the two choices are death or freedom. There's a fairly big difference. Both are euphoric, but only one ends in getting to have breakfast the next day. "You're free to go." Just those four words. That's how she delivers his good news.

Leda takes a breath, "Wait, I'm what?" He says almost in disbelief as he begins to move out of the door. He takes a second to wrap his mind around the concept of freedom, even if he is innocent, especially because he is innocent. He then takes a moment to study Salazar, "So, they proved I'm innocent?" He says questioningly and curiously.

"After a review of the files regarding this particular incident, there isn't sufficient evidence to charge you." Salazar's eyes are fixed on the viper jock as he does through the mental cycle of realizing he can just walk out of the cell. "If you'd like to finish your nap," she says, as Castor hesitates to chat about it. "I could ask the guard to tuck you in for another hour or two."

Only a bullet could have been faster out of the cell than Castor was as he looks at Salazar, "Well, it is good to know I am a free man." He says as his mind grvitates toward the bit about lack of evidence because it might mean that certain people will believe he did it. He then takes it in stride as he says, "And, I'd rather be free. I've got things to do and a ship to defend."

"See the CAG. He expressed concern for your well being," The marine notes, as she moves to walk out of the cell herself. Once empty, the MP secures the cell again, and returns to his desk. "Sign the log book." Salazar nods to the ledger on the desk. "And you can get right to it."

Leda doesn't waste time in signing the ledger as he says, "Papabear was worried?" This warms his heart slightly but at this moment he is full of energy and hope because suddenly he is free again. Suprisingly, his signature isn't sloppy and instead it is practiced and clean as he says, "So I'm free."

"As a commando in the bush." She watches him sign the book, and then she nods toward the hatch. "I wouldn't go so far as to say worried," Salazar adds, dryly. "Now, scoot."

Castor looks back at Salazar, "I'm on my way, have no fear." He says almost unsure if he should say thank you or not but for his part Leda doesn't hesitate to get out of the door so he can run to find the CAG. It would seem that someone is happy to be out of a cell. Yup, he almost does a dance as he gets out of the door.

Salazar shakes her head slightly, and exchanges a look with the duty MP. A dark brow rises, and she makes her way out the hatch, and back to the Sec Hub.
