Sorry for the split-Here is Part 2 of Ch 12-K&K
“So why am I here?” asked a bewildered Spike Miroku. “Extra security in case Bluesummers tries anything funny.” replied Anton. “OK Garner and Gooley are not too sure about this whole thing. So while Don and I scope out Prime and Galvetron, Yuri and Kei will take Spike and Legato to look for this ‘Black Ghost’. The Doctor and Miss Leila may accompany them. Kome Sawaguchi and Marlene Angel waited expectantly for him to continue. “Gomen girls but you two will remain on the ‘Angel’ and await my orders. We’re keeping you in reserve.” commanded Gustav. “Aw shit! Kami shimatta ni jigoku! I want some action man!” complained Kome. “You’re in enough hot water as it is, young lady! Consider yourself lucky. By rights I should throw you in the brig or at least confine you to quarters. But I’m giving you another chance so don’t screw up again! Understand?” Kome looked crestfallen. “Better familiarize yourselves with our new sonic disruptor beam ion cannon too.” grinned Anton. Kome glowed so much that she looked absolutely radiant. Marlene glanced over at her. “Happy now Kome?” she asked. Kome merely nodded. As they all began to drift back to continue their interrupted repose, Poporo’s voice blared over the PA system. “OK hazu better get some sleep now. We lift off at 0600 hours. Flight crew will report to their stations at 0530 hours sharp. That is all. Pleasant dreams.” Kei looked up at the speaker above her head as she walked down the corridor with Marlene. “Finally got that shimatta PA system working, eh?” she said. “I wonder who the flight crew is?” asked Marlene. Without glancing at her Kei replied. “Us. Who did you think? After all, it’s our ship, ain’t it? So you’d better get yourself some shuteye while you can, partner.” Kei yawned and punched the entry panel of their quarters. “G’ Night Marlene.” Kei slid the door of her bedroom open and slipped through it. “Sleep well Kei.” replied Marlene as Kei’s door closed behind her. Marlene headed for her bedroom.
Meanwhile Yuri and Kome had arrived at their own suite of rooms. “Kome you sure you don’t want to stay in ‘sick bay’ overnight?” asked Yuri. “Nai, I’m fine now Yuri. Ka-mi I can’t believe that I actually walked into the rec room half-naked! And in front of everyone, even Mr. Garner! It’s just so-” Kome blushed bright scarlet. “Embarrassing. Hai I know but it wasn’t your fault Kome. It was mine. I gave you that Axilene without first checking your records.” Kome grinned. “Oh well at least we aren’t on the flight crew so we can sleep in.” Yuri grinned back at her. “Gomen, Honey but we are part of the flight crew. I’m the co-pilot and you’re communications officer.
Marlene’s our navigator and our resident hostess (Kei) is the pilot and captain. See just one big happy family!” Yuri yawned. “Well night night.” she said heading for her bedroom. “Night Yuri and arigato.” replied Kome climbing into her own bed. “Boy never a dull moment and never any peace either!” she thought as she drifted off to dreamland.
End of Chapter 12. Onegai read and review. Flight “Angel 2’ seem boring so far? Don’t worry! Tomorrow is lift off and all jigoku will break loose and that’s just in the next Chapter 13 “All systems go for liftoff” or “Do you know where your pilots are?”
That’s all folks! Chapter 13 up soon, maybe this weekend! Answers to quiz questions 11 to 20 for Lupin/Bebop tomorrow evening. We just bought a new SUV--a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe and it’s great! Sandstone color. Four-wheel drive and everything cool! Anyway that’s why this chapter was late and why the answers to the quizzes are late. Gomen for the delays! Arigato to my reviewers and to the writer of the “Dirty Dragons” who just added two chapters to their superb ff about the “Deadly Duo” vs the “Saiyaans of DBZ”. Onegai check it out if you will. And he/she loves reviews! So do we! Ja Mata for now from Keiman and Kei.
