More from Onyx Sun, a science fiction novel that is about to get hit with some revisions, courtesy of beta reader suggestions.
Skipping over some conversation in which Belyn has tried (unsuccessfully) to be the voice of reason. Belyn is speaking first and changing the subject.
“Have you called your father yet?”
“No, not yet. That’s next on my agenda. Or maybe I’ll wait until I’ve checked out the ships.”
“There are other dealers, you know; you don’t have to go with Vastyne Byrd.”
She tilted her head curiously. “Is there something wrong with Vastyne Byrd?”
He shrugged. “They’re no worse or better than any other dealer, I suppose. There are rumors that they’re tied to the D’Rannen Syndicate but then there are rumors like that about most businesses, either to the D’Rannen Family or another.” He hesitated for a moment. “Including the Swann family,” he added softly.
