It was quiet. We floated silently in a small group and stared off at the Tama system star, billions of kilometers away. I took another sip of my drink and wondered again why I was here. Since the end of the previous year I had only taken part in a couple of kills and had barely even undocked to fly with my corporation or engage in a fight. The motivation to pirate had waned as of late... what was the point? Undock. Kill some ships. Lose some ships. Dock back up. Repeat. Money was no longer something that was a concern and the joy of combat seems to dry up once you've been through your thousandth encouter.
I took another sip. My head felt woozy and I began to consider simply turning off the comms and docking up without saying anything. I don't know why I was here. What was the point?
Golden Helmet said something about flying to another system and I complied with his orders but I was barely listening. I jumped in and went to the next gate. I took another sip and yawned. What was the point?
I jumped in and set course for the belt that was being specified by our fleet commander. I watched as my gang aligned and warped in the same direction, without any specific coordination. I wonder what we were going after? I wonder if I'll be able to aim my guns properly after drinking so much? I wonder, what is the point?
As I deccelerated out of warp, the serene feeling melted away and several explosions close by grabbed my attention. Our gang had just dropped in on our old friends The Guristas Associates. Apparently they had requested our help and we were arriving to provide it. Perhaps I should have paid closer attention to what we were doing and I would have realized we were flying here. To this belt. To kill a carrier. I turned on my lasers. I turned on my warp disruptor. I couldn't help but crack a grin as I realized... I had a point.
