Here's Part 2 of Ch 117-K&K
"Sure thing, kid. Bye." replied Rachel, making yet another entry in the vidlogs.
Meanwhile downstairs in the rec room-- "... and so my 'Celtic Warrior' wipes out your 'Swamp Thing'! POW! You lose another 300 life points, Rinnie! You're going down, girl! I'll finish you off on my next turn!" said an exuberant Shippou.
"Oh yeah? Well, now it's my turn, Fox Boy! Ah Ha! I'll place one card face down and I play my 'Mystical Elf' in attack mode! Go and attack his 'Metal Dragon', Mysty!" yelled Rinnie.
"Oboy! You sucker! You've just activated my trap card, 'Elf Hunters' so that means that any attack by a magical creature is thrown right back at the attacker- you! So your 'Mysty' is eliminated and so are the rest of your life points! I win!" crowed Shippou delightedly.
"Not so fast, Foxy! My magic card counters your defense!" cried Rin happily.
"Sorry, Rin honey but that card can only be used if your elf card is in defense mode so Shippou wins." said Helena.
'Hawkgirl' of 'Justice League' had been stuck with babysitting Rinnie, Shippou, Ed and the scouts today. Rin started to cry while Helena did her best to soothe the child. Sesshomaru came over to see why his little ward was so upset.
"Now oro's wrong?" demanded the demon lord.
"Rinnie just doesn't about 'KaiJudo' games yet, Sess." explained Helena. Soon Rinnie stopped sobbing and began to play with Helena's wings.
"Have you seen Dog Boy around anywhere, Hawk?" asked Sesshomaru.
"He's on guard duty with that mangy wolf thing. John, Clark, Wally, Bruce and J'onnz J'onnz ('Green Lantern', 'Superman', 'Flash', 'Batman' and 'Martian Manhunter' of 'Justice League') are up there too. I dunno who the Hell this 'Master' guy is but O'Halloran sure isn't taking any chances with him. Hello there, Donovan. How's your patient?" replied Helena, her last comments being directed at Yuri who had just arrived.
"Hi, Hawk. He's OK but it was a real barnburner and that ain't no lie! He almost got Inu yasha and Kouga before we finally got him sedated! Oh, before I forget- Rachel said it's Rinnie's bathtime." said Yuri.
"Right and then it's naptime for her and Shippou-chan." agreed Helena.
"Aww! Do we gotta?" whined the kitsune.
"Yeah ya gotta! Now come on! Sess, get Rinnie while I grab Shippou." said Helena. Yuri held the door for them.
"The knight's crew up there on five as well?" asked Sess and Yuri nodded.
"Leave our Kei alone and she'd have half the darn ship up there!" said Yuri.
After they'd gone, Sango and Kagome came in and sat down. Yuri ordered from Merrill and the trio had iced tea.
"I, er, heard about your little accidental 'Southern Exposure', Yuri." giggled Kagome Higurashi and Yuri looked daggers at Sango!
"What? It was so funny that I just couldn't help myself! Anyway, Kag won't blab!" replied the dark-maned slayer.
"Oh, oro the Hell! It 'was' funny, wasn't it?' laughed the 'Angel' exec.
"What was funny, ma'am?" asked Jeremy politely. The 'Code Lyoko' gang had just dropped in for milkshakes.
"Grown up stuff, kids. Oro can I get you?" said Merrill coming to Yuri's rescue. The kids ordered their shakes and wandered over to the 'video arcade' corner of the rec room.
"When's lift off, Miss Donovan?" asked Merrill. She was the only 'real' bartender that they had aboard although Spike Miroku had tended bar before getting into mall security. Merrill had barmaided and waited on tables in between treasure hunting jaunts back in Oaklynn.
"Ashita whenever these damned solar winds decide to subside. We can't take off into sixteen hundred kilos an hour tornadoes! Probably 1100 or thereabouts." replied Yuri.
"Hey Yumi! Who's got babysitting duty ashita?" asked Sango. Yumi thought that over a minute or two.
"I think it's Vash, Nick, Millie and Merrill. Not you- the other one. (The barmaid gave a sigh of relief. She hated kids!) Sango's loons have it next day. Then comes the Elf Hunters and Team Rocket. Those four Sai Yuki morons and then the Ninja freaks are the next two days and then- I forget. Check with Faye or witchgirl." replied Yumi and she went back to playing her 'Crash Bandicoot' chase game. For once Yumi was not in black! Instead her outfit was a yellow tank top over Kelly green sweatpants.
"That looks good on you, Yumi." complimented Kagome.
"Thanks Kag. Mar gave it to me." said the feisty Lyokan fan fighter. "How 'is' 'Her Royal Highness'?" she added sarcastically.
"Kei's OK. Why?" replied a puzzled Yuri.
"Not the Boss! I meant the 'Kucinada' and that fawning winged freak ('Kucinagi') of hers!" corrected Yumi Ishiiyama.
"Momiji's on laundry detail and Nagi's probably up there with them too. Well, I got sme stuff to get done before dinner. See ya later." replied Yuri. Draping her blazer over her arm she headed for the lifts.
"Hey Sango! Wanna go for a dip in the hot springs as long as the guys are otherwise engaged? Up on the holodecks I mean." asked Kagome.
"Where's that baka monk? We don't need him sneaking in for a free peek!" replied a suspicious Sango.
"Relax. He's cleaning weapons with the 'Great Detective' downstairs. (The 'Great Detective' was Rachel's dad- Richard Moore.) Besides if we code the Arch, he can't get in anyway. So- are you game, girl?" asked Kagome.
"Sure but let's see if Nat, Flaysie and Cagalli wanna tag along. Faye and witchgirl too." replied the slayer.
"Wanna just make an announcement over the PA to the whole frigging ship instead?" asked Kagome with a smirk.
"Ha ha. Very funny." replied Sango. "OK then we'll just ask those five and no more. And no kids either!" she added. A little while later (Cagalli, Nat, Flaysie, Robin and Faye had agreed to meet them on the holodecks in ten minutes) Kag and Sango got to Holodeck 7-A on Level Eight and Kagome keyed open the door panels.
"Ryokouche Ryuu." she intoned. "Run Program Kagome 4-A and send the Arch, please." she added.
The doors opened and the Arch appeared. Preceding Sango, Kagome entered.
"Wow Sango! I still can't get over this place! We can get anything we want and lokk at this place! A lake with hot springs just like in your time- the Feudal Era! And a bath house, Sango. Arch- disappear and allow no further visitors to enter except for Faye, Robin Senna, Cagalli, Flaysie and Lt Nat. Authority-Kagome. Sengoku Jidai 6." said Kagome and the Arch vanished.
The two girls were standing in the midst of a peaceful sylvan setting. Serenity reigned here. Leaving their junk in the bath house both schoolgirl and slayer had soon stripped to the skin and slid into the warm refreshing waters. The Arch soon reappeared and they heard faint voices.
"Where is everyone?" asked Nat who was leading the quntet.
"Over here, Nat. C'mon in- the water's great! Don't forget to close the Arch!" called Sango.
"We ran into those two loud-mouthed Tamaranians ('Starfire' and 'Blackfire') on the way up here but I think we gave 'em the slip!" replied Nat.
"The bath house is over that way and the deck's coded so we won't be bothered by you know who!" said the demon slayer. In a few minutes all seven girls were basking in the warm spring waters and the remainder of that day passed pleasantly away.
Meanwhile back on the bridge-- Yuri Donovan, Marlene, Zoe and Nyssa were all trying to plot a course to 'Alderaan's' moon of 'Kalufrax'. The major sticking point was where exactly to change course and their subsequent route once 'Alderaanian' space was reached.
"Since we have to end up on a Southwesterly heading, I say that West and then South is the most logical choice." suggested Yuri.
"Nai, Yuri. That's no good. I say it should be East and then North and finally Southwest to reach 'Kalufrax'." said Marlene.
"No offense guys but Nyssa and I are the only trained navigators aboard. I say we gotta go North then East and then Southwest." countered Zoe.
"Maybe the two of us are the only 'real' navigators around here, Zoe but you don't know 'Alderaan'! I do and I say we go South, East, Southwest to reach our destination." put in Nyssa.
They began to argue however they all agreed where to break off their from their original heading. They just couldn't decide on the course switchings.
"Why don't you just blindfold O'Halloran and let her use the star charts for a dartboard?" added a new voice. Heads turned to stare at Han Solo who had just arrived with Legato Bluesummers.
"Oro the Hell do 'you' know about it? Have you ever even been to 'Alderaan'?" demanded Nyssa.
"I live there, Sweetie! Have you forgotten that I'm engaged to one of their senators- Leia Skywalker Organa?" he replied dryly.
"Oro route would you suggest, Han?" asked Zoe politely.
"The old 'Smugglers' Run', eh Legato?" replied Han. Legato nodded and traced a route line across the chart with a vidwand.
"Start about here and then your course will zigzag like so- Northwest, West, East, South, Southeast, East again and finally Southwest. You can land here on the deserted side of 'Kalufrax' and just teleport your prisoners from there." said Legato.
Yuri slowly shook here head. "Nai guys. Kei won't go for teleporting. It could be traced back to us. We will take your other suggestions under advisement though. However, transport will be by cloaked shuttle to 'Coruscant', the capitol of 'Alderaan'.replied the exec.
