Aaron was not exactly sure how to respond to this.

On the one hand, he didn't like the idea of killing someone just because of what could easily have been an honest mistake. On the other, he wasn't exactly unsympathetic to Chakkik's perspective.

He was saved having to deal with this moral quandry by the sight of a familiar figure. The tall, dark-skinned woman in the trench coat had to be Natasha, the partner he'd been hoping to encounter. "Natasha! Is - is that you?"

"Who the hell are you?" Natasha replied guardedly, one hand going slipping inside her coat, where Aaron knew her gun was holstered.

"It's me, Aaron. There's been some kind of body swap, and I got turned into a ghoul."

"Really?" She frowned. "Prove it." She paused briefly, and her voice took on a sing-song intonation as she continued, “Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear. How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.”

Aaron sighed. “Do we have to do this?”

“Mine's a tale that can't be told,” she repeated, voice steely, “my freedom I hold -”

“Okay, okay.” He sighed again. “T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her. Now can we actually deal with this issue?”

“Good boy.” Natasha gave Aaron a brief smile, and turned her attention to Chakkik - without removing her hand from inside her coat. "And who's your new friend?"

((Sorry for talking to myself so much! The exchange Aaron and Natasha use as a code phrase is taken from "Rambling On" by Led Zeppelin, and always makes me think of the PPC.))
