Here's Ch 150- Pt 1-K&K
DISCLAIMER: OK Saavie, 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 150 without further preamble:-
'Major Revelations' or 'Taking Stock'
"I still can't believe that our own little 'Klutzy' (the speaker meant Ensign Elda Saavik it seemed) is on a 'UG' starship and a 3WA cop starship to boot! Er congratulations on your newest promotion, man. An admiral no less! And to think how overjoyed I was when I made 'lieutenant' in 'Starfleet' way back when." said Lt. Commander Worf.
"Well, it musta been a real honour for you to have been the very first 'Klingon' in 'Starfleet', Commander." replied Boss Lady Kei and continued to tap out a report for Garner and company.
"Yes, ma'am. It surely was. My Uncle G'Taahrw (Getock) was quite proud of my achievement and my er father- well, we cannot pick our families now, can we?" replied the Klingon officer.
"You're sure you don't mind relaying my message to Commodore Donovan er Yuri, Commander?" asked Kei.
"Nat at all, ma'am. So as our Vulcan brethren say 'Live long and prosper'. Gotta go, Reds. I'll send that relay out to Yuri babe right away. Ciao!" said Worf, signing off quickly to answer another call.
At 0700, Kei was having java and doughnuts when-
"Lt. Commander Worf calling 'Lovely Angel 2' from 'Starfleet Command' HQ. Come in Admiral Reds. Over." said Worf.
Kei tapped her relay vid switch and replied. "Roger that, Commander. I read you. Oro's up? Over." she said and Worf responded at once.
"Good news, ma'am. Commodore Donovan OK then- Yuri reports that a Major Makoto Kucinagi and a Captain Batou along with their er 'Ta-ch-ko-ma' thingy have vanished from her fleet. Over." reported the Klingon and Kei nodded abstractedly.
"So it has finally begun, eh? Onegai let her know that our experiment here was a success- so far. Arigatou, Commander. O'Halloran out." said Kei and blanked her vidscreen. Then she checked three names off of her vidpad list.
At 0900 Rally trilled her Boss. "Rally to Kei. Boss, we're now 9.6 lightyears in front of that thing. According to Cy, we're outta the danger zone now so can we onegai head for home, Mom?" trilled the Terran Chicagoan bounty hunter and kei chuckled.
"Sorry I ain't your Mom, Vincent but yeah, we'll er head for home in three more hours- at noon. Arigatou, kiddo. Ka-Mi! I just love it when a plan comes together! You and Saavie take it easy up there and play some vidgames or something but don't nuke anything. Until 1200, Rally. Kei out." trilled the redhead.
Elda stared at her new tomo in arms. "Well?" she asked.
"We can do whatever the Hell we want short of blowing up the ship. We leave here at noon. We're going home, Elda! Hoo-ray!" yelled Rally.
Saavie turned to Rally with a puzzled look on her face. "Er, gomen (excuse or pardon) my asking, er Rally but oro do you do back home on Terra in this Chi-ca-go place?" asked a curious Vulcan.
"Nai, I don't mind at all, Elda. We're er cowgirls, I guess. We're bounty hunters- me and Minnie Mae that is." answered Rally and Saavie paled. Vulcans are usually known for keeping their emotions in check but not our Saavie and definitely not today!
"Oro? The 'Blonde Bomber' and you? And er Terra's still there?" yelled the Vulcan.
"Yeah, our handle's the 'Gunsmith Cats' back home. Relax, girl. All Mae usually gets to play with are smoke bombs and some C-4 plastiques." replied Rally.
"Back home maybe that's all she has to play with but Keisie gave her some 'nitroglycine' the other day!" said Saavik.
At 1200 hours Gene headed the 'Angel' towards 'Shimougou' and home.
Meanwhile two centuries in the past on ancient Terra in 'New Port City', a sector of old 'Neo Tokyo' in old Japan--
"Batou! You OK?" said the Major, dusting herself off after picking herself off the floor where they'd landed when the rift closed.
"Yeah er I guess so, Major. Hey! That uniform really suits you, man! Aw, you're taking it off. I suppose these uniforms themselves mean that these past few weeks were the real thing and not just a dive, Makoto. I was sorta hoping it was all just a bad dream, Honey." answered Batou.
"Nai, it was real enough and these damned uniforms we got on prove it." replied Section Nine's commander quietly- Major Makoto Kucinagi who was no relation to Momiji 'Kucinada's' protector. "How's Tachikoma number 46897 doing?" she added.
"Aw, Major. You just hurt her feelings. 'Tachi' is getting along just great. Hey! I'm er picking up something on the World News frequency. Listen? Can you hear it too? (The Major nodded and shedded her 3WA blazer, pullover and pants. She decided to keep the boots though) 'And our final story today is about the founding formation of a new intergalactic peace-keeping force called the 'World Welfare Works Association' which is a branch of the recently formed 'United Galactica Federation of Galaxies' or simply the '3WA' as it's been dubbed back on it's home base planet of 'Shimougou'in the 'Aquarian Galaxy'. This is where they have their two headquarters in the cities of 'Furool or Foo-Lon City' in the East and the city of 'Elenore City' in the Western part of the planet. And now we'll move along to today's sports--' (Batou tuned out the frequency receiver in his cybernetic brain and stared at his boss lady) So- where do we go from here, kiddo?" said Batou.
"We tell nobody anything about this 3WA jazz we've just been through- agreed? (The big guy nodded) We'll er tell Chief Aramaki that we just took a little vacation for the last couple of weeks. Think the old man will buy that one?" she replied and batou shook his head.
"No way in holy or even unholy Hell, babe! We're gonna both be on the carpet this time, ma'am." replied Batou. "The old ape will nail our hides to the cross for sure, Makoto honey." he added.
She had idly glanced at the calendar and then at the holopape on the table and did a double take!
"Batou! Look at the date on this holopape (newspaper)! According to that pape we've er only been gone for a day at most! But that sure as Hell don't figure, does it?" said a puzzled major.
"Oro say we pick up a pizza somewhre, eh?" replied Batou.
The major who was now in tank top and her skivvies was engaged in pulling on her chinos when she suddenly realised the tremendous significance of oro they had just been experiencing for the last half of a month! She was so dumbstruck that she dropped her pants causing Batou to chuckle loudly. "Hey babe! You can leave 'em down as far as I'm concerned!' he said.
She hastily yanked them back up and belted them. Then she pulled on a bomber jacket and stuck her Beretta into her rear waistband. "I don't think so, sir! I really am not that kind of a girl!" she teased. "Seriously though, man- we've been travelling back and forth across the cosmos for more than a fortnight with people from an organization which didn't even exist until a few hours ago! That means, my tomo-- aw, the Hell with it! Let's try that new place on Karan Street- OK? I'm buying so you coming?" she asked.
"You're buying? Damed right I'm coming, baby! C'mon 'Tachi'. Pizza time!" yelled Batou who had thrown an oversized jacket on over his 3WA finery.
The brunette's kawaii fire opal aizu twinkled merrily as she picked up her speeder keys.
"I'll drive, Batou. May Kami guide the rest of our fellow travellers safely home as well Amen." she intoned and opened the door.
