Here's Ch 153-Pt 1-K&K
DISCLAIMER: OK Starfire of Tamaran, 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 153without further preamble:-
'Maelstrom in Space' or 'Saiyaan Airlines- The Only Way to Fly!'
"Christ Almighty, Bulma! OK! You can come with us! Legato, take the comm while we're gone. Keep us headed for home. OK guys- how the Hell do we do this?" asked Kei.
"You two hold onto us very very tightly and we'll do the rest." said Goku.
"Er, Kakkaroth is right for once. Hold on, Ladies and welcome to the friendly skies of Saiyaan Airlines. It's the 'only' way to fly!" chortled Vegeeta.
Kei clipped the 'key' to her belt and clasped Bulma's hands in hers while Goku and Vegeeta wrapped their huge arms around both of the smaller girls. The room began to flicker on and off and then- POOF! They were all standing before a huge I mean at least three kilos wide opening in the atmosphere itself!
Twenty thousand kilo winds with a 'G' force of over five thousand psi were howling all around them!
"Get going! This shield's only gonna hold for about an hour and that's only if we both concentrate- hard- so off you go!" ordered the Saiyaan prince.
Cannons in fists, the two kawaii beauties boldly went where no hu-man had gone before. They cautiously rocketed into the inner portal. Almost half an hour later they spotted a shimmering white column of pure pulsating energy.
"Throw it, Kei!" cried Bulma, struggling to be heard over the roaring of the energy field. Kei hefted the hourglass 'key' and hesitated.
"Throw it!" screamed Bulma. With all of her strength, Kei hurled it into the pulsating column. FOOM! It disappeared in a shower of sparks.
"Come on! Run!" yelled the aoishi-maned bombshell after she'd discovered that their jet packs no longer functioned inside of 'this damned thing' as she had christened the timestorm's inner chamber.
"Christ, kid! The temps rising in here- and fast! It's already over two hundred Kelvin!" yelled Kei, checking her wristchromo's thermal detector.
"In plain Universal, Boss?" cried Bulma.
"Huh? Oh say- seven hundred fifty degrees or so Fahrenheit!" replied the redhead.
"Dam! My boots are melting and my flightsuit's starting to burn too!" cried out the aoishi-maned Saiyaan tamer.
"Run faster, dammit! Golu! Vegeeta! Get set to transport us off this bloody planet! We're almost there!" yelled Kei, tearing off her flaming flightsuit and racing as hard as she could pelt for the exit portal.
"Ditch that flightsuit, Bulma! We're just about home free, girl!" screamed Kei as the walls began collapsing in on top of them!
"Shit! I would pick today to wear my really sexy unies! Brand new too! Dammit! I just got 'em from 'Vittorio's Secret' and er--" cried Bulma, yanking off her smoldering jumpsuit and flinging it to one side.
Suddenly her bare arm was grabbed and then gripped in a Kelvinite vise while Kei felt Goku's huge mitts around her own arm!
"Take us home and quick, man! As Mikey would say 'totally awesome, dude! Hold on tight, Bulma! Now! Go-go-go!" shreiked the Boss.
POW! The air itself exploded! Then both tro-con firebrand and human bombshell passed out!
A little later- back aboard the 'Angel'--
"Kei! Hold still so I can get this pullover on you! Goku! Didya get those sweatpants on her yet?" yelled Elda Saavik.
"Kakkaroth! Do try and do something right, will you! Hold still, Bulma! I've got to get these damned pajama thingys on you! Mugghi! Where the Hell are those bathrobe things I sent you to get for them?" said Vegeeta angrily.
"There we go, Admiral Boss Lady! Saavie? How about their boots? Yuck! These space boots of theirs are melted! Ka-Mi! They've fused to their blasted feet! If I try to pull 'em off, their skin's gonna come off with 'em! Oro should I do?" asked a panicky Goku Son.
"Stand aside! Elda, hold their feet up so's I can blast 'em with a fire extinguisher, man!" yelled Legato.
WHOOSH! "OK, guys- gently peel that greyish mess off their feet! I said gently, dammit, Vegeeta! Dammit! Be careful, Goku! Good! Now shove their feet into these inflatable med boots! Pump in a little bit of oxygen and there! That'll keep their tootsies warm until we catch up to Yuri's mob! Can you two get 'em up to sick bay and then stay with 'em? C'mon Saavie, we'd better get back to the bridge. Arigatou, Goku and you too, Vegeeta! Ja mata, guys." said Legato Bluesummers.
"Who's left, dammit?" croaked Kei who was still trying to get outta her bunk in sick bay despite Goku's efforts to restrain her until- BAM! Vegeeta fist crashed into her jaw sending the fiery tro-con to 'Never-neverland'!
"Wow! She'll be furious with you when she wakes up, Vegeeta!" whispered Goku.
"Why me, Kakkaroth? You hit her!" replied the Saiyaan prince with a grin.
"I did not! You did!" said Goku hotly.
"So? I'm gonna tell her that you hit her." explained a smirking Vegeeta.
"Vegeeta! Stop teasing Kakk-- er I mean- Goku! Leave him alone or I'll deck your ass, you big dumb oaf!" whispered Bulma in a huskier than usual tone of voice.
Both she and the Boss Lady had received first as well as second degree burns over at least two-thirds of their bodies! The two Saiyaans had doused both of them quite liberally with a strange liquid which Elda had given to them- called 'Kolacydyl' which of course was a disinfectant-antibiotic-painkiller. However, the Saiyaans didn't know that!
"Hey Legato! Better add this 'Kola' stuff to our shopping list! Why? It's delicious, man! Me and Vegeeta have drunk most of it! Huh? Yeah, we dumped two whole bottles of the stuff all over the girls! Should we er give 'em some of it to drink, man? Legato?" trilled Goku.
"Kakkaroth! Wanna try some of this stuff? Tastes pretty damned good although it does smell a bit funny! Oro? It er says 'Syn-then-ol' on the label. Want some?" yelled Vegeeta.
"Nai! He does 'not' want some and neither do you! Don't you baka idiots know oro the Hell that stuff is? 'Synthenol' is 'synthetic alcohol', a disinfectant! Medicine! That 'Kola' stuff is 'Kolacydyl', a disinfectant-antibiotic-painkiller! That carp'll kill a 'Silurian Kortoxydent' for Kami's sake!" yelled Saavik, grabbing the 'Synthenol' from Vegeeta and the 'Kolacydyl' from Goku.
"Where's Yuri?" groaned Bulma Brief.
"Damned if I know, kid! Legato's trying to figure out where the oni we are! That timestorm blew us off course! Oro the Hell happened to poor Reds?" replied the Vulcan.
"My hubby!" squeaked Bulma.
"Vegeeta?" asked Elda.
"Who else?" croaked Bulma.
Both hers as well as Kei's throat had been badly burnt and Goku had bandaged them both as best he could so of course the two of 'em resembled ancient Terran Egyptian mummies!
Elda looked pointedly at Vegeeta. "She wouldn't hold still! I only belted her once, dammit!" sulked the Saiyaan prince. Saavie's comlink began to trill.
"Hai? Legato? Yeah. I'll be right up, man. Dammit all! I'm an engineer not a frigging navigator!" trilled the Vulcan girl.
"I thought Vulcans kept their emotions under control like Miss Rae does?" asked a startled Goku. 'Miss Rae' was one of the 'Evangelian' robot-thing pilots and like all 'Eva' pilots she was only a kid.
Saavik stared at the tall Saiyaan. "Uncle Spock and his generation maybe but most of us younger Vulcans just cannot do it! Besides those two old Terran TV headshrinks- Doctor Phil and Doctor Brothers- said it er wasn't healthy to keep all your emotions bottled up inside like that! Bulma? You want a sedative to help you sleep? Nai? OK, I gotta go and see if I can figure out where the Hell we are. Want these guys to stay with you and the Boss? Nai? Then these two bozos can come upstairs with me. Maybe they'll recognize something around us. Ja ne, girl. c'mon Goku. Vegeeta. We're off to the bridge." said Elda, herding the Saiyaans out the door and into the lift.
"Check those viewers, guys and see if you know where we are. Hi Legato. Sorry I was so cross with you down there. Any luck?" asked the svelte engineer.
"Huh? Aw, that's allright, Elda honey. Nai. Nothing new. My kingdom for a navigator!" he replied while misquoting the 'Bard of Stratford-on-Avon'. Almost two hours later-
"Dammit to jigoku! Not the 'Ligurian Formations' either!" yelled Saavik disgustedly. She had been trying to determine their whereabouts for the past couple of hours with no luck at all!
"Oro about the 'Alien Nighmares'? Do they know this blasted sector at all?" asked Legato and Saavie shook her kawaii head.
"Nai. No such luck. I sure wish that we had someone we could ask, Commander." sulked Elda.
"Ahem! I am someone, Miss Saavik. Ask me, onegai. After all, that's oro I am here for you know." responded a grumpy and out of sorts 'CC'.
"Christ! I forgot all about him!" apologised Legato.
"Arigatou, 'CC'- er where are we, tomo mine?" asked Elda sweetly.
"I was wondering when you'd get around to asking me that!" replied 'CC' testily.
"Just answer her shimatta question!" yelled Legato.
"OK. OK. Don't get into such a dither, sir! Ensign Saavik is quite correct. We have been er blown a 'tad' offcourse--" began 'CC'.
"Define a 'tad'." said Elda, her arms folded.
"Just er a few hundred thousand lightyears or so." replied 'CC' innocently.
