Written in response to Casiella Truza’s Friday Flash Fiction with the prompt Audesder. Audesder is a system in the EvE Online universe in the Molden Heath region. From what I could find, Audesder has to do with an incident with Minmatar Pioneers finding a Nefantar Holy Site. There’s a bit more to the story, but I’ll leave it up to you to find it.
There once was a man from Audesder,
His reputation, he was quite a molester,
Until the one day he tried,
A pistol shot him. He died,
Killed by a female pod pilot named Hester.
Hester looked down at the man who was slumped over the booth’s seat, gasping for air, and bleeding profusely from the hole in his chest. Moments ago he had been attempting something Hester wasn’t sure was legal in any star system in the known universe, and was unforgivable in Hester’s opinion. It may be ok with some women where this throwback was from. However, Hester knew that here in the Audesder system, they worked on completely different standards of conduct and poor conduct was dealt with harshly.
As the light faded from the man’s eyes and his last breath came in rattles, she spoke: “Guess this is the last time you’ll be trying that.”
She holstered her pistol and walked out of the bar into the station concourse.
