The familiar trill set Tengu’s eyes alight, causing him to glance towards the sound. He smirked slightly as he saw that his invitation had reached its designated target. “Ah, perfect…couldn’t be prouder of my Tencrow…they’ve been losing letters lately…” He glared up at the tree. “I almost thought I’d have to deliver that letter myself and risk the fury of those beautifully manicured claws of yours.”
He set a few plates out, which had beautiful geisha and maiko ladies painted upon them. He also set out a sake set that had been modeled after Plutonian art…a rare find in his sake set collection. He spoke as he was setting the plates out.
“I wish to offera truce to you, if possible. If you’ll take it, of course.” He set simple bamboo chopsticks out for the two of them, continuing to make more jiaozi as he spoke. “If not, maybe the meal will be nice anyway before we have a fight.”
“Is that so?” A feline eye lifted its brow quickly. Ears twitched slightly. ”Well, at least the post-bird actually managed to make its delivery with success this time, yes?” Pluto would then fold hands together. Might as well try to make conversation, even though the feline droid wasn’t a master in that art. ”Oh, you’d risk your life against me again? Perhaps this time you would have caught me in a good mood. I just polished these claws of mine.”
The feline warrior watched the plates and sake set be sat out. Red eyes widened and Pluto leaned in close at the sake set; was this an authentic Plutonian set? No, that couldn’t be. The felinedroids’ trade route hadn’t made their way to Earth just yet!
“Ah, a gesture of peace? I would be open to that. After all, are not peace and war two sides of the same coin?” If anything, Pluto could often be one of the more diplomatic Stardroids, owing to the Plutonian culture that was ingrained in every circuit of the feline warrior. ”I see no reason to fight when a pleasant meal is shared, after all.”
Tengu kept getting the food ready, glancing to Pluto quietly. He smiled a little as the feline noticed the sake set, commenting on it.
“It’s only painted to resemble a Plutonian set…I have yet to find a real one. If I did, I’d probably use it every day. I love the artwork…although it’s incredibly expensive.” He sighed and frowned. “To own Plutonian items would be a dream of mine.”
He offered Pluto some jiaozi. “I heard that Plutonians make these…I tried to adlib the recipie I found, but I’m not so sure it came out that great.” He smiled uncertainly. A tencrow swooped down and grabbed one. Tengu shouted angrily and threw a rock at the tencrow. “DAMNED FIENDS, THIS IS A PEACE LUNCHEON, NOT A FREE-FOR-ALL!”
