Here's Ch 138-Pt 4-K&K
Gene proceeded to land the 'Angel' at the 'Gandalf Spacedrome' and all of them piled into aircars, skysleds, skycycles or surface craft for the trip to the city. Meanwhile Kei was carefully considering her next moves. According to Yuri the 'Lupin' gang was gone as was the 'Moore Detective Agency'. 'Angel Investigations' had disappeared along with the 'Aoishi Seed' duo and the 'Nadesico' trio. Vegeeta, Goku and Bulma had likewise vanished. Doing some speedy calculations she determined that not counting her people who were permanent fixtures in this era of AD 2251 like herself, Yuri, Mar and Kome there were only three dozen (give or take) displaced persons left to be dealt with on 'Shimougou', that is assuming they didn't pick up anyone else in the meantime! Kei drew up a very rough list of the stragglers remaining, said list to be relayed to the 'G Twins' once it was drafted into her report by Yuri of course. It ran as follows:-
'Dispaced Personnel Remaining Aboard the 'Lovely Angel 2' as of 9 January AD 2251 per CO O'Halloran':-
Rally Vincent and Minnie Mae Hopkins ('Gunsmith Cats')
Yumi Ishiyama ('Lyokan Leftover')
Keitarou Riff and Ann Hathaway ('AD 2268 Avenging Angels')
Major Makoto Kucinagi, Captain Batou and Tachikoma (Cyborgs/Robot from AD 2040)
Keisie and Yuyu ('AD 2140 Lovely Angels')
Doctors 2 and 4/The 'Master' (Time Lords)
K-9/Leila (Doctor 4's companions)
Jamie MacCrimmon/Zoe (Doctor 2's companions)
Nyssa (Trakken girl)
Robin/Starfire/raven/Cyborg/Beast Boy ('Teen Titans')
Slade/Warp ('TT' enemies)
Sutek (Time Lords' enemy)
Serena/Ami/Rei/Mako/Mina (Sailor Moon and her soldier scouts)
Luna and Artemis (Nekko (cat) companions)
Natalie badgiruel/Flay Allster/Cagalli Yuna Athna ('Archangel' trio)
"Christ Almighty!" thought Kei. "I sure as Hell hope at least some of 'em 'fly the coop' before we rendezvous with our fleet!" she mused aloud.
At almost that exact selfsame moment but several centuries earlier on Terra 'Angel Investigations', the 'Moore Detective Agency' and the 'Lupin III' gang including 'Pops' Zenigata materialized in San Franciso, California-USA, Tokyo, Japan and Paris, France respectively.
After many explanations, denials and admissions all three groups slowly drifted back into their old lives.
The 'Kucinada' and her 'Kucinagi' suddenly appeared in Aizu, Japan while the 'Nadesico' trio successfully completed their 'bozun jump' back to their spaceship. Explanations and denials also soon led them back to everyday life as well.
Halfway across the galaxy Bulma, her hubby and Goku all of a sudden found themselves back aboard Bulma Brief's timeship the 'Lady Foucault'.
At this same instant aboard the 'Leo', 'Mikey', 'Donnie', 'Raphael', "Queen', 'Star', 'Falcon' etc. they were all taking stock of their current circumstances especially Yuri Donovan who was worried that the continuum might overcompensate by sending some of their passengers to places and/or eras where they did not belong! However, nothing untoward happened and soon their scans were picking up the outer beacons of 'Shimougou'- they were almost home at last- well some of them anyway!
Onboard the 'Angel' Kei began drafting her report (Yuri could finish it up later) just as 'CC' announced that the last straggler (Marlene) had departed the 'Angel' and Kei smiled. Mar, like herself being an incurable work-a-holic had wanted to stay and help but Kei had been adamant so Mar had reluctantly hopped into a surface craft with Nat, Flay, Cagalli, Spike the cowboy, Jett, Keisie, Goat and Jamie and with Gene at the controls they had rocketed off bound for the 'Moravian City Palace Casino' for some fun.
Faye Valentine had already commandeered a skycycle and left for the racetracks. Rally and Robin the Titan leader were heading for the museum district on a skysled while Cyborg and Saavik were off to a spaceport expo featuring the newest warp drive systems for starships.
"Almost like having our kids going off to summer camp, isn't it, Katie?" asked a voice Kei thought she recognized.
"Yeah, it sure is, ain't it?" she replied dreamily at first. Then-
"You baka moron! We don't have any kids! 'CC', did you hear me?" yelled the redheaded firebrand.
"I did not say a word, Admiral." responded 'CC' in a peeved tone.
"Nai but I did!" piped up the first voice!
END of Chapter 138. Chapter 139 'They're Going Fast!' or 'Mars' Sojourn' coming soon to a website near you (always wanted to say that!). Have a great day and SFN. Arigatou a lot for all of your help and interest in my Angels' saga. Kami bless you all and toodles until next time. Wait- just had a thought here. That new video game 'Halo 3'? What is above an Angel's head? Right, a halo yet 'Halo' games are more akin to our kind of DP 'Lovely' Angels than to the ethereal kind, eh? See ya soon.-K&K
