The H.E.L.M., The Tower
The Guardian returns to the H.E.L.M. and approaches the portal to Mara Sov's Chambers. Petra Venj and Crow stand facing each other in front of the portal. Petra's arms are crossed. Glint hovers behind Crow.
The Crow: Osiris was like family to me!
Petra Venj: You've never even met him.
Crow gestures toward the portal.
The Crow: I know. Just let me speak to Savathûn. Please.
Petra Venj: No. I won't give that witch another chance to dig her claws into you.
Glint: Maybe she's right, Crow...
Petra Venj: You know I am. Savathûn is already in your head. You're a liability to the mission.
The Crow: Why do you have such a problem with me, Petra? Five minutes. That's all I'm asking.
Petra Venj: The Queen of the Reef forbids it.
The Crow: Well, I don't take commands from the Queen of the Reef.
Petra uncrosses her arms and takes a wider stance, leaning toward Crow.
Petra Venj: Savathûn unraveled the Dreaming City with a single wish; I've spent years trying to contain that mistake. Better men than you died because of it.
The Crow: To my ear, it sounds like you're the liability. Maybe your queen's trust in you was misplaced.
Petra lunges forward and holds her knife close to Crow's throat. Crow leans slightly away from the knife but keeps his feet planted. Glint bobs forward, floating nearly between the two and looking back and forth between them.
The Crow: A knife against a Hunter? [softly chuckles] I'd be more careful who you pick fights with.
Petra Venj: Another step, and my Corsairs will have to prepare you a second grave.
Glint: Save it for the Hive! Both of you. This isn't getting us anywhere.
Petra withdraws the knife and takes a step back.
Glint: Thank you. We could all probably use a minute to cool off —
Crow turns and transmats away as Glint finishes.
Glint: Oh. Oh no.
Glint transmats away in the same direction. Petra addresses the Guardian.
Petra Venj: Keep both eyes on that one.
Petra departs in the direction of the portal.
