Here's Ch 42- Part 1. Have fun-K&K;):
Ch 42- DISCLAIMER: OK Misao, it's all yours! First, thank you to Mr. T. for the use of the Angels. Thanks to everyone else who is letting us use their creations. How was that, Yuri? Great! Oh yes it was, Kei! Well, we left you up in the air so let's get to Chapter 42 without further preamble-
'Angels vs Eagles (and Birdies Too!)' or 'How NOT To Play Golf' '
Leaving the others to mill about at the first tee, the participants in the match piled into four of the skysleds and quickly reached the clubhouse/pro shop. Checking in was speedily accomplished (Doctor 2 was quite well known here) and everyone in the group received a vidpad scorecard, course map and yardage holovid. The course they would be using was the 'Gold' course, a 7,200 meters/Par 72 which meant that it contained 4 Par 5's, 4 Par 3's and ten Par 4's. There were three sets of tee markers: Blue for ladies, White for experts and Red for average players. By mutual agreement, the red tees were chosen to be used by all of them. There were water hazards (one stroke penalty if your ball goes in one and you cannot play it out) on holes 1, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14 and 18. There were sand bunkers (traps)(you may not 'ground' your club in them preparatory to a shot. You practice your swings outside of the hazard) on all the holes except 2, 7, 16 and 17. The 2 hole was a very short par 3 of only 96 meters while 7 was a long uphill par 4 with a huge tree bisecting the fairway. 16 was reminiscent of the fabled Terran 'blue monster' 18th hole at 'Doral' in Florida with water on the entire left side up to the green which was quite narrow. It was another par 4 as was 17 which was a copy of the famed 17th 'road hole' at 'St Andrews' in Scotland on Terra. The 'road hole' is an uphill par 4 with a road circling the rear of the green. In normal play any shot on a road could be 'dropped' without penalty nearby no nearer the pin (hole), however, such was not the case here as the road was 'in play' and only at the cost of a stroke could you 'drop' off of it. The holes on the greens had five feet tall (rather than six or seven feet tall) flagsticks in them due to the constantly severe winds of 40 to 55 kph which were always present. This was NOT an easy course!
AN- Rather than trying to explain an 'Alternate Shot/Best Ball Nassau' match to you I will instead explain our version as used here. All eight players hit shots off the tee (there are two teams of four players each. Team 1 is Doctor 2, Doctor 4, Jamie and Leila. Team 2 is Kei, Yuri, Kome and Marlene.). Of the two person subteam (The subteams are Doctor 2/Jamie; Doctor 4/Leila; Yuri/Kome; Kei/Marlene) playing the player whose ball goes farthest and/or is in the best position for the next shot will have his/her ball used for that hole. After teeing off, anyone on that 4 person team (except for the one who hit the last shot) may hit next. The honour on the tee off is constant throughout the match. In match play the best score 'wins' the hole and that team is so many shots up with so many more to play. Match begins 'all square'. Play continues until one team has won more holes than there are holes left to play. The teeing order is Doctor 4; Leila; Doctor 2; Jamie; Leila; Yuri; Kome; Marlene; Kei. A par is even score with 2 strokes on the green and one stroke for par 3, two for par 4 and three for par five. A birdie is one stroke less than par, an eagle is two less and a double eagle (albatross) is three less than par. A bogey is one stroke more than par, a double bogey is two more, etc. A player is allowed 14 clubs in his/her bag. For our match, everyone has the same clubs in their bags. They are Woods: Driver, 3 (baffle) wood, 4 (spoon) wood and 5 (cleek) wood. Irons: 3, 4, 5 (mashie), 6, 7, 8, (spade mashie), 9 (niblick) irons and pitching wedge and sand wedge (sand iron) as well as a putter. A par 3 has no fairway, only par 4s and 5s do. Your tee shot is supposed to reach the green in one for a par 3, in two for a par 4 and in three for a par 5 always leaving an average of two putts on the green to finish the hole.

Re: Dirty Pair Fanfiction-Ch 42- Part 2
Here's Ch 42- Part 2. Have fun-K&K;):
Without further ado, here we go:
The first hole was a 390 meter dogleg (curve) right par 4. Leila drove her ball 290 meters down the right side, cutting the dogleg and leaving a 100 meter second shot from a great angle for her partner (Doctor 4) to attack the pin which was back left and guarded by a bunker.
Doctor 4's tee shot hit heavy rough 190 meters off the tee. Jamie caught a fairway bunker 210 meters out. Doctor 2 went 160 meters and came to rest under a tree. (AN- That means Leila's and jamie's balls will be 'best balls' and played instead of Doctor 2's and Doctor 4's balls)
Yuri's tee shot sailed 150 meters into a lake. Kome's went 165 meters to the dead center of the fairway and was played next. Mar caught a left bunker 275 meters out and Kei's ball carried 310 meters to a spot just 80 meters shy of the green! It was 'hole high' (in direct line of the pin) and was used next also.
Doctor 4 tried a punch shot with a 7 iron which airmailed the green, leaving a third shot of 30 meters. Marlene used a sand iron to 'cozy' Kei's ball onto the green and roll it to within 16 feet of the pin (hole). Leila cut a spade mashie (8 iron) stiff to within 3 feet of the cup. (AN- 'cup', 'pin' and 'hole' are used interchangably although they mean the same thing- the place where you put the ball on the green!) Kei's putt broke severely right before it straightened out and dropped in for a birdie 3. Doctor 4's 3 footer for par was of course conceded. Kei/Mar/Kome/Yuri's team won the first hole 1 up.
The next four holes (2 to 5) were finished 'all square' leaving Kei's team still 1 up with 13 holes to play. By this time, one thing was very apparent. The longest drivers for each team were Jamie and Kei. The best short game (shots inside 100 meters of the green) players were Doctor 2 and Marlene. Doctor 4, Leila, Yuri and Kome were just along for the ride so to speak although most of them were good putters.
Everyone was enjoying the crisp, clear weather and sunny day to the fullest. (Artificially controlled/created weather but what the Hell!) The 'Unholy Four' were (of course) enthralled to not have to worry about: 'who's going to show up next?'; 'what's Ed up to now?'; who's in sick bay?' and a myriad of other daily problems they'd had to contend with since this mission had begun!
After some long but uninspiring tee shots (off the 6th tee), the two best were still a bit of a challenge. Jamie's shot had gone into the fairway but he'd carried it a tad too far and had a 'tight lie' for his next shot which had to clear a lake 150 meters wide to reach a green which sloped back towards the players and the water! The total distance to the pin was 210 meters. The two time lords and Leila had a brief discussion over who would tackle this shot (Jamie was ineligible since he had hit last). Doctor was a good short game player but he lacked the length to clear the water hazard. Doctor 4 had the length but lacked the skill to 'spin' (cause the ball to back up once it strikes the green) the ball and stop it before it rolled off the green and into the drink. The only choice left was Leila.
Selecting a 'cleek' she gripped down almost to the flex (tape wrapped around the bottom of the club shaft) and took a 'closed' (both feet aligned square to target) stance. Whipping the club back to shoulder height with the head of the club pointed skywards, she drove down with a good deal of force at the ground beneath her ball and carved a huge 'divot' (chunk of turf) as she struck the ball and ground driving through it. She cut off her follow through abruptly, hurling ball and divot low and fast. All aizu watched in awe as the ball easily cleared the lake and struck the flagstick causing the ball to drop softly down on the green and roll back only a few feet with little 'spin'. She was within 20 feet of the pin. Leila smiled and slid the wood back into her bag. (AN- All players are using gloves on one hand except for Leila and Kei who play barehanded.
Kei's shot had gone farther than Jamie's but had not found the fairway. Instead her ball was lying at the bottom of a deep bunker! Yuri's, Kome's and Mar's shots had all found water hence Kei's ball had to be played. This shot also had the lake to clear but from a different angle which brought the whole lake into play by 175 meters (to clear) instead of 150. Total distance to pin was 180 meters. No question as to who would play this shot. The only one with the skills necessary here was (who else?) Marlene!
Coolly, she selected a 3-iron! Kei urgently whispered to her partner. "A 3-iron from 180 outta a trap! Are you baka! You need a wood like a spoon or a cleek!" Marlene answered quietly. An iron gets the shot up quickly, Kei. A fairway wood won't clear the lip of the bunker. Trust me, Kei. I know oro I'm doing." Kei stepped back to watch with Yuri and Kome. "I can't look! Tell me when it's over!" whimpered Yuri, shutting her aizu tight. (AN- In bunkers or traps, you are not allowed to 'ground' your club meaning you cannot make sand contact until you execute the shot! You practice your swing before you go into the trap.) Mar stepped down into the bunker and opened the blade of her club (laid the club sideways above the sand so its face pointed up) to its fullest extent. Whipping it backwards until the shaft was parallel to her shoulders and back, Mar drove as hard as she could just below the middle of the ball, twisting the club at the very last second to 'square' (close the face so it is aligned with the target) which sent the ball flying high and long. It easily cleared the water and struck the back of the green. The slope and spin combined to pull the ball back towards the pin fast with a lot of spin. When it stopped, the ball was a mere 5 feet away from the pin on a gentle upslope ideal for putting.
The teams' best putters were Doctor 4 and Kome. Doctor 4 was the first to putt. He 'read' (determine the way the ball will roll based on the curvature of the green, the grass, etc.) the green perfectly, however, he incorrectly judged the speed of the green and his 'lag' stopped 10 feet short of the pin! That left either the other time lord, Jamie or Leila with a tough par putt. Doctor 2 missed their par putt by a foot. Kome was advised not to 'read' too much 'break' (the way the ball will roll) into her putt but rather to concentrate on the speed of the green. Needless to say, she holed out for a 'birdie' 3. The one footer was conceded and Kei's team won the hole- 2- up with 12 holes to go.
The next two holes (7 and 8) were completed 'all square' with 'birdies' by both teams. The overall score still left Kei's team up by 2 holes with 10 to play when they reached the ninth tee. "It looks like a bitch!" whispered Kei to her teammates. "Only 129 meters, Kei, but the first 115 are across water to a tight 'island green' (a green only approachable by a narrow spit of land from the teeing area) which slopes right to left. Don't play to the pin. That's a 'sucker' pin (when the hole looks easy to reach and tempts a player to hit right at the flag). Play to the center right of the pin. Anything on the green is an easy 3 so we'll settle for par on this one, OK?" asked Marlene. Kei nodded apprehensively. "Oro club, Mar?" she asked. Mar grinned. "With your length- this one." She handed Kei the pitching wedge (used from 120 meters and in towards the green). Yuri, Jamie and Leila had already found the water with their tee shots so Kome and the two time lords had headed for the 'drop area' (on water holes, a spot to hit third shots from to the green; usually easier than the teeing ground) to hit their thirds.
After the 6th hole, only two players from each team teed off on each hole. Jamie and Leila/Kei and Yuri were the designated hitters so to speak. (AN- There is a one stroke penalty assessed on each shot into a water hazard.) Komey and Doctor 2 both hit the green this time but left super long 'bogey' (one over par) putts for 4. Doctor 4 had again found the drink so he and Leila were out for this hole. Kei teed up and took a 'closed' stance. Swiftly, she brought the club back to shoulder height. Pausing a second, she drove down easily, striking the ball and sweeping it skywards towards the 'fat' (safe area away from pin and hazards) of the green. It struck softly on the right side of the green and slid quietly to the left before gently stopping 15 feet from the pin! Advantage to Kei's team- two putts for par and another hole! Jamies's and Kei's balls were to be used. Leila went first, stroking her putt too hard and shooting the ball 20 feet past the cup. Mar stroked Kei's ball gently and tried to 'lag' it to the 'magic circle' (3 feet from the cup). Instead her putt was true and the ball dropped in for a 'birdie' 2. 3- up with the 'back nine' (holes 10 to 18 which are usually tougher than the 'front nine' were.) to go for Kei's team. The 20 footer had again come up 6 feet short so the 'double bogey' 5 was conceded.

Re: Dirty Pair Fanfiction-Ch 42- Part 3
Here's Ch 42-Part 3. Have fun-K&K;):
"Welcome to the 'back nine'." said Doctor 2. "If they get another hole up on us, this contest could end on 15 so buckle down and try harder!" warned Doctor 4. "Leila, Jamie- think long and straight here. Water right and bunkers left so stay out of them." whispered Doctor 2 urgently. The other team had chosen Kei and Kome to hit these tee shots (Marlene tended to 'hook' (hit ball to the left) off long tees so Kome got the nod this time.) Kome chose driver and promptly bunkered 157 meters out. Leila and jamie had each hit solid shots to the fairway- Leila had gone 200 while Jamie had crushed his ball to the 325 meter mark! Mar grabbed Kei's arm and bent close to her ear to whisper. "You tend to 'slice' (hit the ball too far right; 'hooking' is too far left) With water right that's bad news. Either let me try a 'hook' or use a 'baffle' instead of a driver. You make the call, Captain." Kei pondered before saying "I know I can't outdrive Jamie and I don't want to hit the water so go ahead and 'hook' it." Marlene nodded. Meanwhile, Kome was trying to coach Yuri about bunker shots but Yuri still looked as confused as hell. Mar struck her driver forcefully and her ball 'hooked' dead left! Suddenly, a fortunate gust of wind caught it and brought it back into the fairway- 335 meters out! The team would use this ball not Kome's (lucky for Yuri!) for this hole. Mar had outdriven the Scot by 10 meters! Kome thumped Mar's back as did Kei. The other team looked sick and Yuri fainted. "Get up, you baka moron!" yelled Kei gruffly, nudging Yuri with her foot. "You have to carry two sand pits and a stream, Kei!" teased Yuri, sitting up. "Big deal, baka! You're IN a bunker!" pointed out Kei. "But we're using Mar's ball not Kome's so I don't have to ply it!" replied Yuri.
Doctor 2 hit next, dropping his ball within 30 feet of the pin. Kei surveyed her 90 meter problem. Two bunkers and a stream guarded the green but the green sloped away from her! This would be Mar's dilemna if she'd played the tee shot. Oh well, no use crying about it! Great! A sand iron (100 meter club) would be more than enough club to clear all three hazards but Kei wanted to play a 'parachute drop' (the ball goes high and comes down gently with little spin or roll to it.) shot and kill the ball's spin. So the selected a 'niblick' (9-iron) and 'opened' her stance (The same as a 'closed' stance except that the trailing foot determines the direction of the shot.). Bring the club back only as far as her right waist, she drove down easily, catching the ball cleanly which caused the ball to sail over all three hazards and drop straight down with no roll or spin. The ball was a mere 7 feet away from the pin! Doctor 4's 'birdie' putt cme up five feet short. Mar was facing a 7 footer for 'birdie' 3 and a 4- up for her team with 8 holes to play. But it was scarcely a simple little putt! It was a 'triple breaker' breaking right, left and finally right again with a huge break. She aimed four feet left of the cup and putted firmly. (AN- There are two basic putting styles- a 'lag' and a 'charge'. A 'lag' runs slower but stops easier than a 'charge' putt. 'Charges' run much faster and are usually used by players who 'read' greens and judge green speeds well since the only way to stop the ball is to strike the cup! Mar and Kei were usually 'chargers' while Jamie, Yuri and Kome were usually 'laggers'. The two Doctors had no preferences and used whatever style they felt necessary.)
Mar's putt broke severely right, coasted left and finally went back to the right, straightening out for the last two feet. Her speed was perfect and her ball banged firmly into the back of the cup, dropping into the hole for a 'birdie' 3 and a 4- up advantage for Kei's team. The other teams' par putt was conceded and play resumed. The 11th was a par 3 which yielded 'birdies' to both sides. The 12th was a long, difficult dogleg left par 4. Both teams 'bogeyed' this hole but Kei's gang was still 4- up with six to go.
The 13th was a superlong par 5. Jamie's side 'birdied' but Kei's side 'eagled' for a 3 which raised their score to 5- up with five to play. "If they take 14 , it's over, guys, isn't it?" asked Leila. Her other three teammates glumly nodded in agreement. "We'll be finished by lunchtime, Mar." laughed Kei. After several muffed shots from both sides, somehow both tteams had reached the green and were facing par putts. Doctor 4 and Kei were the putters. His ball was 40 feet away while she was 20 feet off the mark. Doctor 4's putt was five feet short. Kei read a left break, took a breath, held and released it before stroking her putt firmly, allowing the putter to slide past the ball on her followthrough (where the club and player finish the stroke). The ball took off quickly and went for 19 feet 11 and a half inches and stopped! The other team breathed a sigh of relief. Still a chance to keep the match alive! Kei strolled over to tap her ball in forbogey but she had hardly gone three paces (steps) when the ball vanished, having dropped in for the only par of the two groups. 6- up and 4 to play. The match was over! (AN- The match ends here because one team has won more holes than there are holes remaining to play and even if Jamie's team were to win the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th holes, they would still trail Kei's gang by two holes!) So here the match ended 6 and 4 in Kei/Mar/Kome/Yuri's favor.
As it was almost high noon, the Saiyaans (Goku and Vegeeta) were looking around for the nearest source of food! Vegeeta was the first to spot the snack bar/luncheonette. "May I help you, sir?" inquired the counterman politely. (AN- He'll wish he hadn't asked that!) "Yeah! I'll have 50 cheeseburgers, 50 large fries, 50 chocolate milkshakes, 25 apple pies (Bulma wanted her hubby to watch his sweets intake!), 40 giant root beers an 20 choclate ice cream cones, please!" The poor guy thought he was dealing with an escaped lunatic! After all, wasn't 'Athena 12' a penal colony for madmen? And it was only six and a half parsecs away from 'Kagura'! Vegeeta didn't notice the poor guy's strange looks as he turned to Goku who had just caught up with him. "You want something too, Kakkaroth (Goku's real Saiyaan name which he hated so naturally Vegeeta used it all the time! Everyone else just called him Goku though.) "Yeah! The same thing he's having, tomo mine! Please!" replied Goku at which point the counterman fainted! The Prince of Saiyaans (Vegeeta) looked down at the guy in disgust. "You'd think he's never seen customers before! Humans are pathetic, Kakkaroth!" said Vegeeta. The guy was coming to now since Bulma was applying 'amyl nitrite' (smelling salts) in liberal quantities to the poor soul. "Don't mind them, sir." she said sweetly. "They're pigs! You should see them at home! The grouchy one's my husband." Bulma asked for their bills and paid them. She pointed to the picnic tables outside the luncheonette. "Now go over there and eat quietly like good little Saiyaans!" she said. The rest of the group had soon eaten and drunk their fill and it was time to start thinking about the return trip to the 'Angel'.
Kei trilled to Zoe. "Konnichi wa, Zoe. Anything to report? Over." trilled Kei. "Nope. All quiet here, Kei. Having fun? Over." trilled Zoe. "Yeah, it's cool. I was thinking of staying here until 1600 (4 PM) hours before we head back, OK? Over." trilled Kei. "Sure. See you back here around 1700 (5 PM) hours. Zoe out." trilled the stand in navigator.
Kei looked around for something else to do to kill time and spotted a football field just like they'd had on old Terra (according to the time lords anyway!)! "Now that would be great fun, man!" she cried, stowing away her clubs and spikes in the 'Raphael's' hold. Kei slipped on her sneakers and went off in search of baka suckers! I mean, players!

Re: Dirty Pair Fanfiction-Ch 43-Part 1
Here's Ch 43- Part 1. Toodles-K&K;):
'Killers' vs 'Bruisers' (How NOT to Play Football!) or 'Is 'Kagura' Burning?'
1. 'Call it in the air! Heads or Tails?'
The Saiyaans and Bulma were OK with the idea, having played the game before on Terra. Mar and Kome agreed readily as well. (Natch- Kome was a 'Philly Eagles' fanatic while Mar was a 'New England Patriots' nutcase!)(AN- When we wrote this little ff we had NO idea that these two NFL teams would go to the SuperBowl in 2005! Well, the 'Wizard's' (Bellicheck- Head Coach of Pats) gang, yeah but NOT the 'Flightless Birds' under Andy Reid! Live and Learn, eh?) Yuri refused to play point blank! However, most of the rest of the party were agreeable and soon two teams coached by Bulma (non-playing) and Kei (playing). Kei named her team the 'Killers' and Bulma named hers the 'Bruisers'. The members were as follows-
"Kei's Killers":QB/DT(Cpt)-Inu Yasha; DE/Kicker-Kome; DT/Punter-Kenshin; RB/DT-Sesshomaru; WR/BL(Cpt)/Linesman-Kei; Guard/DB-Jaken; Tackle/DT-Jamie; WR/DE-Marlene; Guard/CB-Genie; Center/CB/Snapper-Kouga; TE/FS-Kagome; WR/SS-Leila (All players are playing offense and defense).
"Bulma's Bruisers":QB(Cpt)/DT-Vegeeta; Kicker/DB(Cpt)-Goku; Punter/DT-Naraku; WR/DT-Orphen; WR/BL/DE-Sango; Guard/DE-Junpei; Tackle/CB-Kikyo; WR/CB-Melissa; Guard/SS-Miroku; Center/FS/Snapper-Merrill(the thief er treasure hunter); TE/Linesman-Louie; RB/Linesman-Shippou; Tackle/Linesman-Yahiko
The three timelords, Yuri, Cleo and Odo were the referees. 'The Master', claiming to have the most knowledge of the game, was the head ref. After a coin toss (heads-Kei; tails-Bulma) which was won by Bulma when tails came up, it was decided that the 'Bruisers' would receive to start the game meaning (natch) that the 'Killers' would receive to begin the second half.
Kome kicked off deep to Shippou who watched the ball sail over his head and into the end zone for a touchback bringing the ball out to the 20 meter line to start play. 'The Master' placed the ball on the 'Bruisers's' 20, stepped away and blew his whistle to start play. Merrill snapped to Vegeeta who received the ball before stepping quickly backwards and upwards (Saiyaans can fly you know!) while Sango cut left and Melissa sped right. Kei shadowed Sango while Kouga covered Melissa. Shippou had scooted past everyone and was wildly waving to the Prince of Saiyaan from the 'Killers's' end zone to show he was open. Vegeeta fired a rocket across the field (intended for Melissa) and right into the waiting hands of Kouga who had read the QB's intentions perfectly and intercepted the ball. However, the impact momentum of Vegeeta's pass knocked the wolf down at the 'Killer's' 20. Since he was not down by contact, the wolf youkai leaped up and ran for the end zone before being tackled by Goku at the 2 meter line. A 15 meter penalty assessed against Vegeeta for being the first to touch the ball after leaving the field (he flew up and came back down-remember?) resulted in a half the distance to the goal penalty and the ball was moved to the one meter hash marks. "First and goal." said 'The Master' and play resumed. Kouga snapped to Inu Yasha who handed off to his brother, Sesshomaru and blocked Goku and Vegeeta from the line of scrimmage. Sesshomaru saw a hole in the defense and dove through it and into the end zone. 'The Master' raised both hands high and yelled "Touchdown." Kome kicked the extra point and the 'Killers' had drawn first blood and were ahead 7 to nothing.
Kome kicked off and the ball had gone only 30 meters before Goku (using his Saiyaan instant transmission) suddenly materialized and snagged it. Odo threw a yellow flag at his feet. He was penalized 15 meters for the same infraction as Vegeeta had gotten caught on earlier. The result- rekick. Bulma was furious! First her husband and now this twit! She stormed onto the field and dragged Goku off by his ear. Kome had better luck this time kicking off to Merrill who fielded it at the 'Bruiser's' 15 meter mark and raced to the 21 where Kaoru brought her down with a flying tackle. Bulma's team lined up quickly. Merrill snapped to Vegeeta who faked a handoff to Shippou. Then he backpedaled fast and fired an 80 meter bomb across the field to the left hand endzone of the 'Killers's'. It was caught cleanly by Sango who fell backwards into the endzone with it. Cleo screamed "Touchdown!" and raised her hands. Score: 7 to 6.
Bulma dashed to catch her husband as he was walking off the field and whispered "We're going for two! Fake a handoff and Goku will block. Then sneak the ball into the end zone. Don't screw it up, dummy!" Vegeeta colored and replied "Woman, do you think that I cannot comprehend this trivial Earth game of yours?" Bulma grimaced. "Oh, you comprehend it OK but I want us to win so don't do anything stupid!" she said. They lined up on the Killers' two meter line and Vegeeta faked a handoff to Goku who didn't realize it was a fake so he yanked the ball away from Vegeeta and dropped it! That botched the conversion attempt and ended the first quarter to boot. Score: Kei's Killers- 7/ Bulma's Bruisers- 6.
Goku kicked off to the Killers. The ball sailed to the killers' 4 meter line where it was fielded by the hanyou. Inu Yasha broke into a fast leaping trot, well protected by his blockers, Kouga and Genie. 96 meters later with the Bruisers' far outdistanced, the trio barrelled into the end zone, Inu Yasha and Kouga crashing into the rear wall behind the goal posts. "You can stop running once you cross into the end zone, stupid!" yelled Genie at the semi-conscious dog and wolf. Yuri's hands were raised high as she squealed "Touchdown!" Kei thumped the hanyou on the back and said "Great, Inu Yasha! Now, we're going for two. If we make it, Bulma's team will have to score twice to catch us. If we don't we're still up by a score. This will be a 'bootleg'. Fake to your brother. Then drop back a step or two and throw it to either Mar, Leila or me, whichever one of us is open, OK?" He nodded. "Sheesh, Kei! Kagome said this game was hard! It's too dam easy!" Kei grabbed him and whispered firecely "It's that kind of attitude that loses games! Never underestimate your opponent. Now let's do it!" The Killers lined up quickly. Kouga snapped to Inu Yasha who faked to Sesshomaru who broke for the goal line. The defense bit, covering the youkai and sending only Shippou into the end zone to cover the wideouts. The result was that all three of them were open and leaping up and down. The hanyou hesitated and then leaped over the middle of the defensive line and into the back of the end zone! Odo said "Extra two points good." and raised his hands. This made the score 15 to 6 and enraged the aoishi-haired vixen into a fury! "Now we need a Kami shimatta touchdown AND a field goal to take the lead!" she ranted.
Kome counted quickly to be sure that only eleven players were on the field for the kickoff. Then she booted it high and long , straight down the middle of the field directly at little Shippou. Seeing it coming right at him, he ducked! Jamie was the first one to reach that end of the field and dove on it at the Bruisers' one meter line! That meant that Bulma's team had to go the entire length of the field to score- 99 meters! Vegeeta conferred with his wife before ambling back out to the huddle.
"Look, morons, we're going to try something different this time. 'She who must be obeyed' has said that I am to hand off to Goku. Meanwhile, Sango, melissa and that fox kid thing (Shippou) will go deep. Goku will throw to whoever's open and Kakkaroth, you have to be behind the line we start from so you'll be in the end zone! Bulma said that if they knock you down in there while you've got the ball, they get two more points (a safety) so watch it! OK? Let's go!" Vegeeta's offense lined up quickly and Kei nudged Inu Yasha. "Watch out for the option! Vegeeta will hand off to someone who will become the quarterback for this play and throw deep! Try to catch him in the end zone and floor him before he can throw. Pass it on." Merrill snapped to Vegeeta who lateraled to Goku who dropped back into the end zone. Kaoru, Jamie and Genie ignored the three receivers downfield and who were covered by Jaken, Leila and kagome. Instead they broke through the offensive line and into the end zone, diving for Goku. "Throw the dam ball, stupid!" yelled Bulma from the sidelines. Goku threw but Jamie batted the ball out of the air and into Genie's hands who caught it and then spiked the ball for another Killers' touchdown! Doctor 2 beamed and raised his hands. Goku trotted over to Bulma and said "Gomen (Sorry), Bulma. Another two points?" Bulma rankled. "Nai, you Saiyaan simpleton! Six! You coughed up the dam ball in our end zone and they recovered it. That a touchdown!" Kome trotted onto the field. Kouga hiked to Kenshin who held the ball while Kome kicked it through the uprights for the extra point. The score changed to 22 to 6 but still in the Killers' favor. Bulma snagged Goku.

Here's Ch 43- Part 2. Toodles-K&K;):
"Listen, they've been putting that toad demon thing (Jaken) out there with special teams. Kick it to him and we'll pin them deep." Goku kicked a beauty to jaken at the Killers' 5 but he lateraled it to the wolf youkai (Kouga) who took off down the field as if he'd been wearing the 'Winged sandals of Mercury' on his feet! This time Kei and inu Yasha did the blocking and Kouga rushed over the goal line for the Killers' second kickoff return touchdown! Kei turned to the hanyou. "We'll let Kome kick the extra point again this time, right?" Inu Yasha nodded, loping towards the table where the green drinks (sodium high energy drinks) were waiting in paper cups. Kouga hiked to Kenshin who spun the ball and held it for Kome who easily booted the extra pont. The new score was now incredibly 29 to 6 and Bulma was going ballistic!
"Three minutes are left in the half. Now look guys! If we want to score we're going to have to use the clock. Vegeeta, if nobody's open run downfield with the ball but watch the time! If you have to, run out of bounds and stop the clock. Goku, Sango, Melissa, Louie and Shippou- you guys will 'jailbreak' downfield fast! Vegeeta will throw to one of you. At the two minute warning, the clock will stop automatically for a timeout. We only have two of our own left, thanks to Naraku! When you made your secret 'I love you' sign to Kikyo, you signaled a timeout, dummy! And Goku, if we have to, I want you to try for a field goal. Louie, you and Sango will be the returnmen for kome's kickoff. Don't waste time. If the ball goes into the end zone, it's a touchback and we get the ball back on our own 20 to start. Let's go people!" said Bulma.
Kome didn't quite catch the ball cleanly off the tee but the kick went high and straight. Louie waved off sango and fielded it at the 10 of the Bruisers. Sango, Kikyo and Merrill blocked while louie took off down the suddenly open field. At the Bruisers' 46, the 'Inu Yasha Connection' landed on the stunned sorcerer! So hard did Inu Yasha, Kouga, Sesshomaru and Kagome hit him that the ball was fumbled loose and snatched away by Kagome. Cleo grabbed it away from her and placed it on the Bruisers' 46 meter line. "Runner was already down by contact when ball was fumbled loose. Ground cannot cause a fumble. Still receiving team's ball. First and ten!" she yelled. Vegeeta's offense was already lining up. Merrill snapped to Vegeeta and took down Jaken while Jamie easily handled Naraku, Kikyo and Yahiko. Sango broke right covered by Genie. Melissa broke left with kaoru close behind her and Louie ran center, Kei matching him stride for stride. Vegeeta took Merrill's snap, stutter stepped back and began to race around the backfield waiting for an opening to develop. Finally, the clock down to 1:15, he threw left to Melissa but Kaoru knocked it away at the very last second. Meanwhile, there was a flag in the backfield. Goku was holding Inu Yasha. "Ten meter penalty for holding. Still first down." said Oddo, holding his left wrist with his right hand.
Bulma fumed and accidentally kicked Saitoh who had been deputized to babysit Ed, Rin and the 'Sailor Moon' crowd. "Hey! Watch it, bimbo!" growled the former leader of the third squad of the Shinsengumi. "Sorry." said Bulma. Now her team was backed up to its own 36 with 1:10 on the clock. They ran the same play but this time the pass was to Sango who caught it at the Killers' 47 and and ran to the 42 before Kei brought her down hard! A first down by two meters. Time left- 1:03and Bulma signaled for a timeout but Vegeeta thought she was waving to him so he waved back. Melissa, though, made the 'T' sign and the clock stopped at the 53 second mark. "OK, we can stop the clock once more and that's it! Goku, if we don't advance any farther, it will be a 58 meter try so be ready to kick. Three more passes and then a timeout for the field goal, OK? Go!" Bulma watched them all run out onto the field. Fuming, she stuck her hands into the pockets of her sweatpants. After three more botched tries, Merrill called their last timeout and the field goal unit trotted out. Merrill hiked to Naraku, who stood up while Goku blocked for him and tossed a bomb to Louie who was deep in the end zone, loosely covered by Genie. Louie snagged he ball and spiked it. Yuri crowed "Touchdown! Yay!" and raised both hands. Kei just looked at her in disgust. Goku kicked the extra point and the score changed to 29-13 but still in the Killers' favor.
Time left was 16 ticks of the clock and the Killers still had all three of their timeouts left. Goku booted to Jaken who caught the ball and fielded it to Kouga. Inu Yasha and sesshomaru blocked as the wolf took off, leaving all the Bruisers in the dust! No one came close to catching him, not even Goku! Kouga scored easily and 'The Master' raised his hands. Kome booted the point after and Keitarou fired his gun to end the first half. Score: 36-13 Kei's Killers over Bulma's Bruisers!
Since Bulma's team had gotten the ball to start the first half, Kei's team would get it to start out the second. Goku played it safe (or so he thought) and kicked off to Jaken who caught the ball after leaping straight up in the air a good ten meters! He had grabbed it at midfield and sprinted into enemy territory downfield until Goku brought him down just shy of the Bruisers' 9 meter line! "First and goal from the nine." intoned Doctor 4. Inu Yasha took Kouga's snap and lateraled to Kei on the eleven. She sent a rocket pass left to Leila in the end zone who jumped to avoid Naraku and caught it for another touchdown! Kome's extra point was good and it was 43-13 with guess who leading! Kome kicked off and the ball sailed into the end zone for a touchback. Starting from his own 20, Vegeeta handed off to Shippou who scooted to the Bruisers' 40 before being tackled by Sesshomaru with an ankle grab takedown. On the next play, Vegeeta passed to Sango at midfield. She caught the pass and ran to the Killers' 36 where Leila and kaoru double teamed her for a takedown. Sango just about managed to hold onto the ball! Then Vegeeta faked to Sango, dropped back and passed high and left across the field to a wide open Goku for a touchdown in the Killers' end zone! A two point conversion was tried with Vegeeta doing a quarterback sneak from the two. He barrelled into the end zone, dragging the hanyou and two youkais (Inu Yasha, Sesshomaru and Kouga) with him! The score climbed 43-21 but with the Killers still in the lead. Bulma almost trod on Serena's foot in an ectasy of sheer joy! "Goku, onside kick to Sango. Ball's got to go at least ten meters, OK?" she whispered to the Saiyaan. Goku ran out and tapped a 20 meter kick right into Sango's mitts at the Killers' own 48! "Tighten the line. He's going to go deep." whispered Kei to her defensive huddle.
Vegeeta handed off to Louie who passed to the demon slayer at the Killers' 26. Sango fielded the ball and took off downfield to the Killers' 15 wher Kouga forced her out of bounds. After three passes into the end zone (all dropped by Goku) the fild goal unit came on to attempt a 31 meter kick. Merrill hiked to Naraku who held for Goku. The big Saiyaan easily booted the ball over the uprights for three points. The score was now 43-24 but still in the other team's favor. Goku kicked off deep to Sesshomaru who caught the ball at his own 15. Inu yasha took Kouga's snap and handed off to Jaken who raced downfield to the Killers' 40 before being tackled by Sango. On the next down, Inu Yasha tossed a screen pass to Marlene who was suddenly surrounded and engulfed by a six meter high wall of flame!
"Cool! Where did you learn to do that?" cried Kagome. Startled, Mar yelled back "You mean you or Kikyo or Naraku didn't do this, Kagome!" and fumbled the ball whichwas scoopedup my Miroku. The monk was promptly tackled by Kouga at the Killers' 38. Kei called for a timeout (their first), raced across the field to Marlene and ran smack dab into a 15 year old human female with long brown hair done up in some weird kind of pigtails! She was wearing an outlandishly old-fashioned long black dress and an even longer black coat which dragged on the ground! On her aizu she wore old-fashioned half lensed, horn-rimmed spectacles! "Give us the witch and we will not harm you." she said quietly but sternly staring directly into Kei's green orbs.

Re: Dirty Pair Fanfiction-Ch 44- Part 1
Here's Ch 44- Part 1. Toodles-K&K;):
'Bulma's Dilemna' or 'Demon Hunting was NEVER Like This!'
"Where the F did you come from?" yelled Kei, trying to execute a spinning tornado kick at the girl's face which was ringed with flame! "We just want the witch!" cried a 16 year old boy who had just materialized beside the girl. He was pointing a weapon of some sort at Kei who drew her own Mark XIII and covered him with it. He fired twice, striking Kei in the chest! Dumbfounded, Kei looked down and saw a glowing green ichor-like substance staining her football jersey! It was quite sticky and stunk to high heaven! "That will stop your powers, Witch!" he cried, dodging a stinging, sizzling bolt of white hot ionic energy from Kei's cannon! "There are no Kami shimatta witches here, you baka!" she yelled, savate kicking the strange weapon out of his fist and skywards. Diving forward, she expertly caught it in her left hand and covered both newcomers with it and her own Mark XIII. By this time everyone else had drawn their own weapons and were surrounding the weird duo to protect Marlene and Kei. The boy nodded to the girl and slowly raised his hands. The girl blinked and the ire vanished as mysteriously as it had come! Then she too raised her hands in surrender.
"We're witch hunters, ma'am." said the boy calmly. "Call the 'STN-J'. They'll vouch for us. My name is Haruto Sasaki and hers is Robin Sena." Kei asked them two totally unexpected questions. "Oro year is this and where do you think you are?" Both Haruto and Robin looked shocked! "It is the year 2004 and this is Tokyo in Japan." answered Haruto, clearly perplexed. "Wrong on both counts, boyo! It's AD 2250 and this is 'Saruman' on 'Kagura', a small world in the 'Orion Nebulae' and there sure as Hell ain't no witches here!" replied Kei. "There is a witch here, you know." said Robin quietly, glancing around the field slowly until she was facing Kikyo! "She is a witch, ma'am. Give her to us and we will be on our way." she said calmly.
"She's a miko, a preistess! Not a witch!" yelled Kagome, trying to hold back Inu Yasha. "OK, let me try and explain this to you, kids." began Kei. "You came here through a rift in the 'space/time continuum'. You're stuck here with us for the next two or three weeks until that rift has been sealed. Then you'll be whisked back to 21st Century Terran Japan, we hope! (Kei turned to face Haruto) And you, my tomo, owe me a jersey if this green gunk doesn't wash out! Now, get off the field so we can finish up this game!" she said.
After a brief discussion amongst the refs and coaches, it was ruled that the fumble would stand, however, the ball was respotted at the point of the original fumble, the Killers' 42 meter line. The hanyou escorted Robin and Haruto over to Bulma and placed them in her custody. "By the way," called Kei, "consider yourselves prisoners of the 3WA. I'll explain that one later. Enjoy the game." Bulma looked at her new charges. "Give me your words taht you won't try anything funny and I won't handcuff you. OK?" she asked. Both kids noddded and seated themsleves on the bench between saitoh and Rin.
A very agitated gentleman had just hurried over from the clubhouse across the street. "What have you idiots done to our football field!" he screamed, seeing the huge scorched area where Marlene had been attacked. He was the secretary of the 'North Star Southern Cross Golf Country Club' which also owned the football field. Kei strolled over to meet him, whipping out her 3WA ID holovid card. "Relax, pal. 'United Galactica' and the 3WA will pay for all the damages. I'm Sr. TC Kei O'Halloran of the 3WA/Code name 'Lovely Angel'. Our mission is top secret so I can't give you specific details but we're stuck here ('Kagura') for a couple of weeks. My ship's berthed in the 'Jigen Woods' in 'Sena Province'. My shuttle, the 'Enjeru Raphael' is parked just off the 14th fairway of your golf course. Relax! It's cloaked so nobody can see it. My people needed a little 'RR' so we came here. We had a cool golf match and now we're having a rad football game, OK? Here's (she handed the guy a holovid credit chit) a thousand credits on account. (Kei grabbed him by the lapels of his jacket and whispered to him) It is essential that no one learns that we are 3WA/UG! You got that, tomo mine? To protect our mission, I could put you in protective custody and toss you in my brig, you know! Now, do we have a deal, sir?" demanded Kei fiercely, her aizu blazing green fire.
"Yes, ma'am! You have the word of harvey Birdman, Esquire, Secretary of the 'North Star Southern Cross Golf Country Club', that you do, ma'am!" he stammered fearfully. "Then go sit down over there and watch the rest of the game." The guy obeyed. Kei trilled Ila. "Ila, make sure Harvey stays put. Tell Bulma that as soon as the game's over, we're blasting off. Nod if you understand and wave to me." Ila nodded and waved, fingering the outline of the blaster underneath her sweater. Ila got up and leaned over to talk to Harvey. "Stay put! We're all armed and know how to use our weapons. Am I making myself clear? Do you understand me?" Harvey nodded quickly. Ila quietly ran over and whispered Kei's orders to Bulma. Saitoh shook out a cigarette and offered one to harvey who gratefully accepted it. They lit up and harvey said "You know that redhead's name and code name seem somehow familiar to me, sir." said Harvey Birdman. "They sure as jigoku ought to!" whispered Saitoh. "Her partner's name is Yuri Donovan. (Harvey still stared blankly) They're usually called (he whispered to Harvey after g;ancing about) the 'Dirty Pair'." explained Saitoh. The poor soul went white! "Holy Christ! NO! Not here!" whispered Harvey, suddenly very much afraid. "Relax tomo. They just want to blow off some steam. We'll all be gone soon enough. Enjoy the game unless you're squeamish about blood." said Saitoh with a grin.

Re: Dirty Pair Fanfiction-Ch 44- Part 2
Here's Ch 44- Part 2. Toodles-K&K;):
The clock had been reset to 9:01 (still the third quarter) and Vegeeta's offense had lined up. At the last minute, Kei decided to switch the defense from a 3-4 to a 4-3 formation. Vegeeta took the snap from Merrill and dropped back, having sent Goku, Sango and Melissa deep and Louie out in a short crossing pattern. Bulma barked out a warning a tad too late as Inu yasha, Kei, Kouga and jamie blitzed up the center, squeezing the 'Prince of Saiyaans' who paniced and tried to run. All he did was to back up farther and farther until he was sacked by the hanyou at his own 25! "Second and 37." announced 'the Master', replacing the ball on the hashmarks. Bulma frantically signaled for a timeout (their first). Finally, Sango saw her and called one. The clock was down to 8:27. Bulma corralled her hubby and whispered "If they have four on the front line it means they're gonna blitz you! That also means that you get rid of the dam ball before they sack you!" He nodded and returned to the field. Having seen the 4-3 defense, Vegeeta handed off to Sango on his right who ran left before handing off to Shippou behind the line of scrimmage. Shippou went right and turned downfield while Louie and Sango blocked for him. He only picked up 5 meters before jamie took him down at the Bruisers' 30. "Third and 32." said 'the Master'. "Kakkaroth, if we don't get a first down, you'll have to kick a field goal." said Vegeeta in the huddle.
Vegeeta sent out his wideouts- Sango, Goku and Melissa. He threw deep to Goku but Jamie batted it away from him and almost intercepted it. Bulma debated and then called her second timeout. "Goku, 96 meters for the field goal or we go for it on 4th and 32 or we punt. Well, guys, if we go for it and don't get it, Kei's team has the ball on our own 30 or better to start. If we miss the field goal, they start on our 14. I say we punt and bank on the last quarter to catch up so that's what we'll do. Naraku, put some hang time on that ball and pin 'em deep! Let's go!" she barked out. Setting up on their own 14, the Bruisers got into a punt formation while Kei's defense was set up for a punt block attempt. Bad news for the Killers! Sizing up the situation facing him, Naraku took Merill's hike and stutter stepped around the backfield, buying time. Meanwhile, on Naraku's signal, Sango had gone deep. Naraku launched a 60 meter bomb right at her! Sango leaped and caught it in front of an amazed Jamie who took off after the flying demon slayer and finally forced her out of bounds at the Killers' 9 meter line! "First and goal." cried 'the Master', setting the ball on the hashmarks. Bulma was flabbergasted (and overjoyed!) and the whole team was 'high fiveing' the new hereo of the day, Naraku! Vegeeta took Merrill's snap and looked left before pivoting right and throwing to Louie in the middle of the end zone. "Touchdown." said Oddo, his arms rased high. Goku had already been sent out to kick the extra point which he did easily and the score climbed to 43-31, yet once again still with Kei's Killers in the lead.
The clock read 2:05 and Kei still had two (three if you count the two minute warning) timeouts left to Bulma's one and her team still trailed by twelve! Goku kicked off to Kouga who fielded the ball at the Killers' 3 and shot downfield, Inu Yasha and kei handling the blocking while Sesshomaru and Jamie cleared the way for the wolf youkai. Finally, only Miroku, Merrill and Goku were between Kouga and the end zone! At his own 47, Miroku launched an ankle grab takedown at the wolf who avoided his tackle, losing a shoe in the process. Merrill dove in front of the speeding demon, rolling into his shins and succeeded in upending the ball carrier at the Bruisers' 35. However, a 15 meter penalty against the adventurous thief for an illegal 'chop block' advanced the ball to the Bruisers' 20 meter line! The clock had been stopped at 1:50 to assess the penalty and 'the Master' blew his whistle to restart it.
"We have got to hold them to just three here, guys! That will leave us only down by 15 going into the last quarter. We'll need two TDs and at least one two point conversion to go with them so get out there and fight!" said Bulma, laying it on the line to her team.
"OK guys, we're good here. No passing- just handoffs and no fancy jazz, right, Kei?" said Inu Yasha to his teammates in the huddle. Kei nodded and said "No harm done if we have to settle for 3 although 7 would be a better cushion and we still have two timeouts to their one plus the two minute warning. So, let's go!" she said. Inu Yasha discussed further tactics and pointed to Genie who nodded. Then the huddle dispersed and they lined up in a 'shotgun' formation. Seeing this, the Bruisers shifted to a 4-3 defense to guard against a pass. Genie was the last one to line up and reported to 'the Master' that he was an eligible receiver for this play. Kouga snapped to the hanyou who backpedaled as the front four blitzed the offensive line. When they were almost on top of him, Inu Yasha did a handoff to his brother who shot to the right and lateraled to Kouga who was sidling to the left. As soon as she saw this maneuver, Bulma knew it had been a set-up! The defense had bit and Kouga completed the reversal movement by racing straight out for the end zone! Sango caught him at the Bruisers' 7 and shoved him out of bounds thus saving a TD for the moment. "First and goal." intoned 'the Master'. Taking Kouga's snap, Inu Yasha again handed off to his brother but this time Miroku corralled him in the backfield at the 11 for a loss of four! Second and goal with 1:07 to go in the third. This time the hand off was to jaken who sprinted to the five whre Naraku threw the toad demon out of bounds with a shoulder slam. Third and goal with 59 ticks left in the third quarter. Inu yasha took the snap and kept it, barreling ahead with five tacklers on him who finally dragged him down at the 2 meter line! Fourth and goal and 47 ticks left. "Do we go for it, Kei?" asked Kagome. "Nai. Kome makes an 18 meter kick for a three." replied Kei. "We canna, Lass. It's fourth doon." said Jamie. "So? We can kick on fourth down." replied Kei. "But if we go for it and miss, the worst is them on their own two to start the last quarter with only one timeout left!" pointed out Kaoru. "So let's kick some ass!" shouted Leila defiantly. "OK, quarterback sneak on three. Let's go for it!" agreed Kei. They lined up once more and Inu Yasha barked out his signals. "Shikon shift. Hup, one, two, three!" Kouga snapped to him and the hanyou leaped for the end zone, running into Miroku, Sango and Kikyo at the line of scrimmage, turning the ball over on downs. Bruisers' ball at their own two!
'The Master' blew his whistle and respotted the ball. "First and ten." he said. "Time out for change of possession." he added. There were still 21 seconds left in the quarter. "We do not have to worry about time yet, guys. The end zones change at the gun. We will still have the ball so don't panic. Vegeeta will fake to Goku, drop back and throw a sidearm screen to Sango who will be on at least the 12 for a first down. Then we use Melissa, Louie and Yahiko in crossing patterns. Everyone clear on that? We're only 12 back with a full period to go so it's OK to settle for a three here. Let's kick some ass out there!" yelled Bulma, sending her offense back out onto the field. Vegeeta took Merrill's snap, backed to the one and threw to the 12 where Sango would be by the time the ball got there. Sango caught it easily despite Jamie's trying to bat it away from her. She pivoted and took off for the open field, Melissa and naraku clearing the way for her. She got to almost midfield before Inu yasha crashed into her at the Bruisers' 47 meter line. Her ankle twisted underneath her and she screamed in pain as she hit the turf hard! Merrill signaled their final timeout of the game and the clock stopped. Bulma sent Saitoh over to help her off the field along with Misao, her replacement. A devastating blow for the Bruisers! Their best player out of action!
Quickly the offense lined up again. Vegeeta tossed a screen to Shippou who crossed into enemy territory and raced for more yardage all the way to the 35 before running out of bounds. Keitarou's gun signaled the end of the third and everyone ran to see how severe Sango's injuries were. The three time lords and Yuri were already tending to her. Her head was swathed in gauze and her right ankle had been taped. Yuri shook her head at Bulma and Kei's concerned looks. "She's out for the rest of the game. I want to get her back to the 'Angel' and run some X-rays on her skull. She may have a concussion." said a worried looking Yuri Donovan. Kei pondered their dilemna.

Re: Dirty Pair Fanfiction-Ch 44- Part 3
Here's Ch 44- part 3. Toodles-K&K;):
Misao can replace her on the field, Robin can watch the kids while Saitoh goes along with you to help and Han can pilot the 'Raphael' but we still need another ref." said Kei O'Halloran. Haruto strolled over. "Sorry for butting in but I've played football for ages. I think I could replace Yuri as ref." he said. Yuri smiled at him and Kei nodded her agreement. "OK. Take the 'Raph' back to the 'Angel' and do your tests on Sango. Send Han back for us and Yuri (she whispered), stay cloaked! Berringer and his mob are hunting for us! And move the 'Angel' to those woods in 'Sena' too. As soon as we all rendezvous back on the 'Angel', we're leaving 'Kagura'! (Yuri looked a question at Kei) The only place that they won't bank on us going- 'Gysymeo'. We'll have New Year's there instead of here, kid!" said Kei. "And my surprise for you, Kei!" said Yuri, grinning mischieviously. Robin had come over and laid her hand on the side of Sango's head. "She should be fine, Miss. I feel no disruption in her brain's algorhythmns." she remarked dryly. "Vulcan Mind Meld?" asked Merrill. Robin Sena just smiled and shook her head. She felt a hand on her shoulder and turned to face Miroku. "Might I ask you a question, Miss Robin?" he said innocently. "Go ahead, Father." she replied. "Would you do me the honour of bearing my children?" queried the monk straight-faced. "WHAT!" responded the amazed Mistress of the Craft. "Oh someone hit him onegai! Where's my hiraikotsu?" said Sango weakly from her position in Saitoh's arms. Kagome did the honours by bashing him in the head with her helmet. (AN- Yuri had replicated equipment for all hands from the replicator on board the 'Raphael')
"Aren't you a preist or something, for Kami's sake? Oro about your vows of celibacy?" demanded Robin. Meanwhile, Yuri had already divested Sango of her football attire and padding as well as her footwear. Now she gingerly felt the girl's right leg as well. Sango howled in agony! "Oh, my Christ! Her leg's broken too! The fibula I think, Kei!" she said worriedly.
