Here's Ch 45- Part 2. Toodles-K&K
"Gomen (Excuse me) Bulma. Hai, Yuri?" Kei answered her comlink trill. "First, the good news. I set Sango's leg and put it in a cast. It was broken in three places. She's under sedation and sleeping now. All of her concussion tests are negative. She'll be OK real soon. Now, Kei, the bad news. Berringer knows we're here! I've already sent back han in the 'Raph' for you guys. When he gets there, load up and get the Hell back here stat! I can't pilot this darn ship by myself and you know the chiefs aren't pilots! Then we should get going to 'Gysymeo'. Who won the game? Bulma? Ooh, too bad! See ya. Yuri out."
Besides the cast on her right leg and the bandages around her head, Sango was not clad in anything! She was covered by a quilt and sleeping on a bunk in the 'Angel's' sick bay. Ironically, she was the first occupant of sick bay not put there by Kei's wrath! Sango was sound asleep with 150 cc's of 'Troxoleine 70' pulsing through her veins. Yuri had (of course) wasted no time in changing her clothes and now wore a white blouse with red tie, an aoishi blazer, a short pleated grey skirt, white stockings and black oxfords with flat heels. In the shoulder holster under her blazer nestled her Mark IV mini-blaster. In her skirt pocket was the handle of her deactivated laser sword.
Marlene had told Yuri to change heir heading to due West at 640 which she had done. I'm some co-pilot! she thought to herself. I can't even fly the dam ship! With han at the controls of the 'Raphael' all she could do now was await Kei's return with the ohers. Han had left for the golf course just as soon as Yuri had assured him that the strange demon hunter lass, Sango, would be OK. "Well, her own dam fault!" he thought "Playing football in a 14-G atmosphere!" He had been to 'Kagura' many times before with Lando (Calrissian) and Chewie on their smuggling runs. He was not about to tell either of these hot-headed tro-cons that he was once a smuggler. No way! After all, out here, they WERE the LAW! He glanced over at the huge cat thing (Mugghi) who was piloting the shuttle with him. There was also an R2D2 thingy (Nammo) along with her which was checking gauges and adjusting controls. Han hoped that they knew what the Hell they were doing! This 'shuttle' was almost as big as his 'Millenium Falcon', for Christ's sake! By Han's reckoning they still had about another hour of flight time to go before they reached the golf club and could bring back all the rest of the 'shore leave' party. "Han? Mr. Solo? Do you read me, sir?" What the Hell! Yuri's voice? Here? Oh, yeah, that pen she'd given to him. He pressed the clip on it and said "Just Han. OK, kid? Over." Yuri's voice crackled over the comlink. "Sorry, Han. Please tell Mugghi to 'cloak' the 'Raphael' as soon as you guys land. Think you can find that golf course, Han? Over." han trilled her back. ""No problem. It's in the Southeast quadrant and I know exactly where it is, Doll. Over." Yuri trilled again. "There's a small glade next to the left fairway on the 14th hole. Put down there and Han, watch your mouth around Kei, please! I'm getting tired of playing 'doctor', pal! Yuri out." Han stuck the pen back into his pocket, put his feet up on the console and took a nap.
Yuri had at long last found John Berringer's fleet of hired killers! Less than two days from 'Kagura'! The 'Angel's' executive officer glanced at her wrist chromo and did some quick calculations. An hour for Han to reach Kei. Another hour to load the luggage and personnel. Another hour for the return flight. Three hours! Christ, it would be 2000 (8 PM) hours before they could lift off. Two hours to the 'Gyrol Mountains' where they'd spend the night. Kei sure as Hell wouldn't risk a night run to 'Gysymeo', would she? Nai, they'd camp out overnight and get an early start in the morning (she hoped)!
