Neoteric came in to do his laundry too, that pretty much kept the Steward to his business.


Ovi was taken to the doctor and was now feeling better, however he was distressed by something he read in the "Daily Sail".


Celdur led the morning exercise on the pool deck.


Danger Mouse joined the workout, she later had an appointment to get her hair done.

Off duty until lunch, I head up to the pool deck to have a chat with Neoadept and make myself available to help people out.  Gotta get in that face time, be accounted for.  Don't want anybody suspecting me.

"Hey Neoadept, I assume you've heard the news?  You've talked with most people on the ship, what's your oppinion as to who it could be?"

After Neoteric had taken his place in the Laundry Room, Lual decided to satisfy his curiosity by going to the room in which the murder had occurred.

The large crowd that had been present earlier at the door of the room had thinned out.  When he looked inside, he was puzzled by the lack of excessive gore that had been present on the previous murder. He only saw the crumpled body and the box of pastries by its side.

"Could it be that those pastries were poisoned?", he said softly to no one in particular.

"If they are, then the killer is one of the people working in the kitchen..."

Even though he had little interest on what happened to the passengers of the cruise, he found this mystery compelling enough to fill his time for the rest of the day. It would help take his mind off the underwear he was not able to take.

I needed to talk to Celdur, so I waited after he was done with his workout. While I waited I talked to the bearded fellow and checked out that cute blond in her swimsuit as she bounced around during the workout. I went up to him after he was done.

"Excuse me Mr. Celdur, I know there are more pressing matters with the murderer running around, but I've had stuff stolen from me and that Barber KS cut my hair without me knowing it, yeah it looks nice but that's not the point. Is anyone going to do anything about these problems?"

I couldn't stand more of that bs that priest was talking, all I could think of was the murder. Was I going to be next? What If the killer is just around the corner? 'That would be great, get killed on my birthday...' I thought to myself and suddenly felt very lonely, noone had congratulated me today, and I have been getting no presents. I felt like crying. I happened to stumble uppon that irritating photographer sitting in a couch and stopped for a miliseccond. Then I put on my superstar face and walked past him as fast as possible without running.

I raised my hands and kept talking and preaching to the people.

"Dont let this happen to you! If you want to live Join the Religion of the Holy Sloths! It will make your life easier and better even if you still have a few hours to live because some psycho is on a killing spree on a cruiseship!"

i felt like nobody was really interested in my speech so i turned it to a different subject

"Everybody has his little problems, Or things he does because he's got no other choise. Everybody tries to keep these things low and hidden so that nobody else gets to know of these things. But it doesn't always work"

I let my eyes fall upon the photographer and raised my voice a little more.

''We must not forget, even if we get to know the personal problem of somebody, that they are persons as well, AND YOU HAVE YOUR OWN THINGS THAT MAKE YOU A LITTLE WEIRD!!!!"

i noticed i was shouting and my face went angry-red to ashamed-red

"so let's not forget to let people in their dignity EVEN if there's a life or death situation."

i looked a littlebit angry at the photographer while i walked off to my room

"I hope he understanded what i was trying to say. If he doesn't respond in 2 days or so, i'll have to take drastic measures and i'll confront him.

"that is if we find the murderer and we'll live another 2 days....

"but first, lets make get more people on the good side: The Holy Sloth side! hmmm, what about hanging some posters throughout the ship?.... hmmmm

"

Despite being tired and overworked, Gec set up the slot machines for the tournament in the afternoon, anything to keep the ship running and the people happy.


Lego and Gorman went to the gym. They kept one eye on each other as they worked out.


Rhodix worked up a sweat in the sauna but that didn't stop his ever thinking mind.

Slarti woke up tired that morning.  He had only managed to sleep for a few hours.

After getting ready, he moved his steamer trunk out of the way to find a copy of the Daily Sail slid underneath it.

'Let's see if there's anything worth doing.  Chess at 3 seems good.'

Reading to the announcements Slarti found something that troubled him.

'The engines and the internet are both broken!  How much more screwed can we get?'

After grumbling for a bit, Slarti made his way to the coffee bar in the hopes some java would jolt him awake.

He had just gotten his mocha latte when the security guard ran up to the firstmate - acting captain now - and told him about another murder.
A police officer had been killed in his room and some pastries were near the body.

'I wonder if by pastries he means doughnuts?'

Hungry and trying to soak in this information, Slarti made his way to the breakfast bar on the pool deck.
There seemed to be a revival of some sort happening on the other end of the deck.  

'Did he just say "Holy Sloth"?  Na, I must have misheard him.
 
Slarti sat down next to a man wearing a Santa hat.  Oddly, this did not seem out of place to Slarti, it merely added to the surrealism of the moment.
They had a casual chat; Slarti tried to keep up his end of the conversation, but he was absorbed with his own thoughts.
Luckily, after Santa had compared their current situation to a bad horror movie, he mostly complained about how little luck he was having with the ladies.
Simple "Ain't that the truth" and "I know the feeling" were enough to maintain his end.

In Slarti's mind he was more concerned with the facts of the murders.
'First a sushi knife and now pastries -- I guess they were poisoned.  Circumstantial evidence seems to point to the chef.  I wonder if there's any corroborating evidence?
There's no rule that says a murderer has to be a genuis -- Occam's razor and whatnot.  But it does raise the question, if the chef isn't the murderer who would want to frame him?'


As he was sitting there, this broke the monatony of his thoughts:
"Excuse me Mr. Celdur, I know there are more pressing matters with the murderer running around, but I've had stuff stolen from me and that Barber KS cut my hair without me knowing it, yeah it looks nice but that's not the point. Is anyone going to do anything about these problems?"
Slarti began to turn saying, "I thought the hairdresser's name was Anou Mawi?" only to find a skulking man with a pair of scissors less than a foot away.

"HOLY ****!", as he reflexively tried to move away.

I was up on deck, enjoying the sunshine, when I noticed the hairdresser menacingly approaching another man, brandishing his scissors.

"Hey, stop right there!" I grabbed the hairdresser's scissors.

"I knew it! First you tried to pin the murder on me, and now I catch you looking for your next victim! Considering you're the only other one with sharp objects at his disposal on board, I'm not surprised!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

''ah, they turned out rather nice!" i said while i walked out of my room ''if i hang these up all over the ship, they'll all be trusty followers of the Holy Sloths."



"what a fantastic idea of me to add the link to the site on the poster. when the internet's put back online on this ship, Some people might even visit the site!"

"oh yeah, I'm so good, this might even work! The Holy Sloths will spread all over the world, if i can convert all these important people on this ship!"

I went to the Spore deck to hang the first one up.

I grabbed a coffee and headed to the computer room. It seemed I would be there for a while. My assistants had managed to lose most of the files for my next case. Coincidently this was against Danger Mouse. Christ I can't stand her. I looked the the side and saw a poster of some sloth with a halo.

Church of the holy sloths. Bloody hell, I hope that is a joke. I looked it up for a laugh. It turned out it wasn't.

Anyway, down to work.

Just as I began retyping the many pages of text I recalled seeing a pile of files in her room the night before.

What if somehow her files were to be misplaced as well? I grinned.

I finished off my coffee and headed down to E3.

Leaving the room, I noticed a rack full of business cards.

Why not?

I pulled a card from my pocket and put it in the rack.

As Ovi sat and read the Daily Sail, his face went pale.

Quote
... Scrab Booking fun in the show room
2:00 pm Slot tournament: Free entry and win $500
3:00 pm Chess tournament in the library...

Free entry, He thought. I guess it wouldn't hurt to go, right? I can't possible lose anything, can I?

"Only everything you've been working on these last few months," said his other shoulder.

Well, I don't have to use any of the money I win for gambling, I can promise to use it on something else.

"But you won't."

That's what I'll do, I'll use the money for something else, then it's okay if I gamble.

"You're making the same mistake again."

But by this point he couldn't hear his other shoulder anymore, he had made up his mind. He read over the daily sail again to see if there was anything else of interest.

"Hahaha!" he chortled out loud. Whoever typed this spelled "Scrap" wrong!

And with this he got up and headed to the casino.
