31 - Upward Bound

As I sat there, sipping the nectar of the stars, a familiar light went on . . . I had an important message. I got up, raised my cup to the starry-eyed lady at the counter and slowly consumed what she had called a mudslide as I made my way back to my rented room. She knew I'd be back.
Entering, I discovered there were two rats sharing the room with me. No time to worry about that right now. I hit the button on the display, and the message came. It was my employer. I'd been summoned back to Taungoo for a graduation ceremony. My excellent service had brought me to an early finish on my apprenticeship. I think the Portmaster found a loophole and wanted me out of there.
Ah, but who cares, right?
I'm just a collie.
