Lula took her time getting to her ship, the Billowed Reid. As she climbed aboard she went through the data she had collected over many years. She observed the logs of sightings and one thing became clear, despite all the years the Promised Jewel had floated through space it had not been plagued by rust or other ailments old ships suffered. Lula sat back and flipped her face plate open. "It's a hologram." She muttered to herself.
Tapping her lip with her finger, Lula started to think it through. Perhaps Talk Ettin had wanted to disappear so badly that he actually crashed his ship and set up a fake hologram so people would think it was still out there. Lula wondered if that were possible. It took her only a moment to realise that the hologram projector could be a remote or small ship. The former seemed more likely.
Lula decided to scan for remotes in the area, then perhaps she'd find where the true Promised Jewel hid.
