Urka Gul said, “Foreboding situation? You don’t know the half of it. But you claim honor, and there is no honor standing on the sides of a coming battle. Only in the heat of battle.”
“Urka Gul we are not trying to escalate the situation here,” said Orsa Gul, “Merely solve the situation.”
“If we were to take on the Military backing up Absalom, we would need an army of our own,” said Urder Gul in a calming way, “But we do not have an army, and we do not want to take on the Earthers again as just Nine.”
“Last time, all it took was a stupid peace treaty meeting with the Cardinal Bray,” sneered Urka Gul, “You cannot trust Earthers.”
“That is awefully racist of you, Urka Gul,” said Orsa Gul now cuttingly, “How would you feel about Earthers saying that about Olgogs? Remember how little some of the Falosini thought of us? I remember your rage in those situations.”
“Who needs an army,” said Urka Gul, “Let me just bring down Flamewind after Flamewind and we crush the entire civilization the Earthers have built on our stolen land.”
“Let us not engage in the stolen land debate again,” sighed Urder Gul, “The Modern Olgogs made the Deals they made, let them stand by them.”
“If that was your true philosophy the Nine would not be so worried about the growing tension in Absalom and Hebron,” said Orsa Gul adjusting his feather mask.
