Covey was faced with a difficult decision. The objective evidence pointed to Busty being a liar and a thief. Covey didn't want to believe it. He didn't want to believe that Busty Lady was just another typical carebear--a user who only cared about money.
Re: Need Bowhead for a runCovey penned an EVEmail to Busty Lady. It was dripping with sadness and disappointment.

To: Busty Lady Ereland,
No, on my side, everything went as it should............as far as I know trade went off after I checked the accept block........I thought you had it when I mentioned I forgot to check the hold.........you told me all I had was the fittings on the ship..........so you had to be looking at the Bowhead fittings which you could only do if you had recieved the Bowhead.........now you say you never got it..........I think I just got played...........np.........I take a chance on people every now and then and can recover from the loss..........but I the one who is willing to loose ships for an ally..........maybe I was wrong about you........
Busty Lady Ereland > o/Busty Lady soon got in touch with Covey. He was still speaking to her, but there was a coldness to his manner that wasn't there before.
Busty Lady Ereland > Sorry, I was AFK
Busty Lady Ereland > did you get my mail?
Covey Deninard > Yep......I don't have it........sent email reply
Busty Lady Ereland > I see the mail now. I am not saying I never received the bowheadThe damage to their relationship seemed irreparable. Covey's trust was completely gone.
Covey Deninard > I cannot take it back with trade without your participation.
Busty Lady Ereland > I am saying I don't know what happened to it
Covey Deninard > ok
Busty Lady Ereland > I put ships in it to move and I logged off and when I came back it wasn't thereNow it was Busty Lady's turn to tell her side of the story. Covey wasn't the only one who'd been hurt, she explained.
Covey Deninard > I don't have it.......but need it for about 6 runs myself
Busty Lady Ereland > It had over 1.8 billion in ships and fittings inside
Busty Lady Ereland > I need my kronos lol
Busty Lady Ereland > As it stands, I need to get a plex in a couple of days and I have no other source of income other than moving my 3 bil in stuff from Osmon to Jita to sell
Covey Deninard > I guess I need to go buy anotherUnder the circumstances, Busty Lady felt it would be appropriate for Covey to let her borrow his freighter.
Busty Lady Ereland > I can buy you another when I sell the stuff
Busty Lady Ereland > Can I use the charon to move it? I won't log off this time, just go straight to Jita
Busty Lady Ereland > Otherwise I wont have ISK for plex
Covey Deninard > Sorry.........I'm feeling a bit like a mark right now
Busty Lady Ereland > I would not do that to a fellow anti-gankerI believe Covey when he says he's been burned in EVE before.
Busty Lady Ereland > I hate those scum
Busty Lady Ereland > And I hope we can kill them together soon
Covey Deninard > I've been burned a bunch here on Eve............but I still try to make ally''s when I can
Busty Lady Ereland > If you allow me to restore your faith in humanity, I will show you I am honest
Covey Deninard > I will give you one more chance......call me a sucker.....
Covey Deninard > what fittings do you want on Cheron?Alas, another of Covey's ships slipped from his grasp.
Busty Lady Ereland > just whatever it was before is good
Covey Deninard > got it?
Busty Lady Ereland > did you do the trade?
Covey Deninard > Cheron is gone
Busty Lady Ereland > I just saw the window close
Covey Deninard > Sorry Busty.........can't do this again
Busty Lady Ereland > Maybe we could try orca swap in spaceBusty Lady then requested the keys to Covey's new Orca. Covey could hardly believe it. History had repeated itself--but this time, Covey really was done with Busty Lady. Finished, for real.
Busty Lady Ereland > I can move my alt to the sun to get the orca
Covey Deninard > Just how many every expensive ship would you hand to someone?
Covey Deninard > egg on my face
Busty Lady Ereland > But I promise you ship swap in space will work...On the other hand, there was a lot of upside to letting Busty Lady borrow the Orca. Once she'd sold her stuff in Jita, Covey would be repaid.
Busty Lady Ereland > In the mean time, If i can get this stuff to jita I can cover the expenses
Busty Lady Ereland > You will see my alt get in it and go to jita
Covey Deninard > who is your alt
Busty Lady Ereland > [REDACTED]
Busty Lady Ereland > she can fly orca
Busty Lady Ereland > I will move her to the sun
Busty Lady Ereland > We can do it in space
Covey Deninard > meet me at the starJust as the two star-crossed rebels were about to meet at the star and transfer the Orca--a plot twist!
Busty Lady Ereland > omw
Busty Lady Ereland > she is there at the sun
Covey Deninard > hold the phone.....
Busty Lady Ereland > k
Covey Deninard > just got a message from a merc friend.............hears I'm getting ripped off.........offereing his alliance services again...............I told none of our conversations or loan of ships
