Here's Ch 161-Pt 5-K&K
"And your ship, my dear?" asked Doctor 2.
"Outside the Citadel's main gateway now, Doc." replied Kei.
"Out in the courtyard, Doctor. We have been unloading the thing all morning. Remember?" answered Kaltrox/Tommy Tanaka.
"Give them your exact locations on your way to the TARDISes. Miss Hathaway, you will accompany Doctor 4 and Mr. Solo. Admiral? Who will accompany you and Doctor 2?" asked Barusa.
"Annie's goin' with Han so I'll take KR along with me, Lord President." she replied.
Han, Ann and Doctor 4 were already racing towards his Type 40 police box.
"Attention! All hands aboard the 'Angel' except KR will evacuate the ship immediately and report to Yuri Donovan in the Citadel for further orders. Use skysleds for the trip over here. KR will remain aboard and await my orders. Kei out." trilled the redhead while she and Doctor 2 jogged to his Type 40 craft.
Kei was busily describing the area where she'd last parked the 'Angel' and the little fellow was attempting to pinpoint its location on his grid coordinator's screen when KR (Keitarou Riff who was Kei's godson) trilled him with the correct coordinates.
Doctor 4 had already laid in his coordinates for the 'Midoriko' and had 'tractored' the mid-sized starship beside his TARDIS. Finally Doctor 2 had 'tractored' the 'Angel' safely alongside his TARDIS as well. KR meanwhile beamed over and joined his Auntie Kei and Doctor 2 in the TARDIS's control room.
"Are you ready to leave, Doctor?" asked Doctor 4.
"Of course we are! I suggest we leave together on 'three'- agreed?" replied Doctor 2.
"On 'three' then. Ready? One, two, thr--" began Doctor 4 when--
"Hold it! Where the Hell are the seats? We gotta be strapped in before we take off, don't we?" yelled Han Solo.
"No seats, Captain. Just hold onto the console and brace yourself." grinned the Doctor. "Shall we try this again? Very well. One, two, three." said the tall grinning time lord as he pressed the 'Activate' panel and the by now familiar pulsing sound became audible while the box's top light began to wink.
At that same instant Doctor 2 repeated the selfsame procedure and his TARDIS disappeared in the opposite direction as Doctor 4's craft had gone.
"Apparently my dears, we are going back to 'Warrior's Gate'." said the smaller time lord.
"And Annie, Han and Doctor 4, sir?" asked KR.
"A terrible place, me lad. I am very much afraid that they are bound for 'Mordor'. Now pay attention. That was our last vocal communication. When they are in place and ready to go, the Doctor will ring his cloister bell twice and when we are ready to go I will ring our cloister bell twice. Then we will each count to ten- very slowly- and ring our bells again. That is when Captain Solo and you, my dear Keirran will fire. There must be absolutely no hesitation, girl- none at all- unless you want this universe plunged into total chaos!" warned Doctor 2.
Hundreds of lightyears away and speeding towards their own fate Doctor 4 was giving Han and Annie the same speech.
"I calculate that we will arrive at our destination by 0600 tomorrow. You will fire that thing of yours, have a hearty breakfast and then we will return to the Citadel. Any questions? No? Very well. We will have some food, relax a bit and turn in. K-9 will awaken us at 0500 so we will be ready in plenty of time." said the tall time lord.
"One more thing, children. We must not remain on 'Mordor' longer than we deem to be absolutely necessary. The place is quite eveil and simply teems with villainous types." he warned.
" 'Warrior's Gate' exists in both light and shadow so must be certain to leave it just as soon as we finish our mission there. Otherwise we could be trapped outside of time and space- forever." said Doctor 2 to Kei and KR.
After dinner the little fellow stretched, yawned and said "0600 will be here soon enough, kiddies. I believe I shall turn in. We will be awakened at 0500 by 'Woozle', my data droid. Good night and sleep tight. Don't let the bed b- Oh you know the rest. See you in the morning." he said.
As she prepared for bed and nursed her third 'Double Dew' Kei mused. "Would this bloody nighmare never end? Sure, she and Yuri had joined 'UG' and the 3WA to 'see the universe' but this was friggin' ridiculous! He'd been across the shimatta universe so often that she probably qualified for the Terrans' 'Guiness Word Record Book' somewhere! If 'UG' gave out 'frequent flyer' kilos she'd easily qualify for at least a thousand trips to 'Elysia' and back! Ah well, at least she wasn't alone in this fools' endeavour. Han- Kami bless him- was along for the ride too. Hopefully this would be the final time that she'd have to fire that Kami forsaken 'God Gun' at long last! With a little bit of luck there'd be no leftover stragglers this time. Here's to that happy day!" she mused to herself and drained her glass. Kei's final thought as she drifted off into Dreamland was- "Wonder if the vacuumhead's OK back on 'Gallifrey'?" Then Morpheus claimed the strong-willed tro-con from 'Workoh'.
"How in the oni (devil) do I get myself mixed up in these shimatta messes?" thought Han Solo while lying in the luxurious Louis XIV canopied bed under silk sheets and satin coverlets. Unlike Kei, sleep would not come for the pirate. "Guess the Sandman doesn't like me tonight. Maybe some of that Chamomile herbal tea that Raven seems to live on might help. The Hell with that thought! Oro I really need is a mug of 'Denethorian Dortmunder' beer or a bottle of 'Romulan Ale'! Well the next best thing is a midnight stroll." he thought, pulling on a kimono and leaving his bedroom.
Doctor 4 was burning the midnight hyperdrives with K-9 tonight. After running a few more programs through his 'dog', he had decided on a small 'tissane' (a potent after dinner liqueur from Terran Belgium) before retiring. As he and K-9 headed for the galley Han had already left for his 'stroll' and inevitably they ran into each other- literally!
"I do not know if you are aware of it or not, Captain but my TARDIS exists in more than one dimension which is why it is much bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. This makes it very easy to get lost on it so might I suggest that you refrain from taking these little moonlight strolls? It is quite possible for you to become so lost that you will never find your way back again!" said Doctor 4.
"Thanks, Doc. It's just that I can't seem to get to sleep tonight." replied Han.
"Easily remedied, my boy. K-9? Some 'Glaydor' tablets for our guest, onegai. Perfectly safe, Captain. You'll sleep like the proverbial log, that you will." promised the time lord kindly.
The small 'data dog' obediently brought two 'Glaydor' sleep inducing tablets for Han. After he'd swallowed them with the water provided by K-9, he thanked the 'dog'.
"Good night, Captain Solo, sir. Good night, Master." said K-9. Then he trundled back to his 'bed' under the console and shut down for the night.
"Hope 'Duchess' is safe back at that Citadel." was Han's last thought before he slid into Slumberland.
Meanwhile back on 'Gallifrey'--
Yuri was fighting a losing battle. With the Citadel Guard behind them, she, Kome and Mar along with Tommy and his subordinates had been trying to contain 'Trigon' and his armies.
A few more hours! Just a few more shimatta hours! Crack! She popped off another blast from her disruptor gun. She'd found out the hard way that demons were immune to stasis guns, 'stunners', laser swords, knockout gas, any type of ion cannon and most of the other weapons in their arsenol!
"Watch your flank, Lord Kaldor!" she yelled, aiming a savate kick at a gruesome mass of flesh- a Dalek who had been exposed when Daedalus (another time lord fighter) had physically yanked open one of the 'Mark Five' machines- which fell back cringing into its small cubicle atop the Dalek.
"We cannot hold them off for much longer, Commodore!" he yelled, tossing the Dalek into a nearby pond.
"I know that, Dae! Where's the Castelein? Have him call Charlie er I mean Chief Garner on 'Alderaan'! Maybe he can send us some shimatta backup! I wish all of our wizards hadn't have gone home! We could sure as Hell use 'em now! Kome! Can you fit inside one of those Dalek travel boxes? Well- try it anyway! You're the smallest of us three and the little fellow is with the Boss! You're in? Good! Start blasting those durn pesky demons! Oro do ya mean there ain't no controls in there? Hai, Dae? Arigatou, I'll tell her! Kome? Dae says that those thingys are thought activated! Just think oro you wanna do and the machine'll do it for ya! OK? Great! Now do a 180 and zap those roku (six) demon thingys that Mar's battling! Mar? Help's on the way! Oro? That's damned good news, Korden! Folks, we got a half dozen starships headed here from 'Seto Kaiba' courtesy of 'Starfleet' and one of 'em's Kiva's 'Coriander'! Hold on just a little bit longer! I sure as Hell hope that red-headed bimbo knows oro the Hell she's doing this time!" yelled Yuri Donovan angrily.
Daedalus dispatched another Dalek and nodded.
"Fall back! Fall back to the Citadel! That gate's about to be breached!" screeched the Castelein. Yuri turned in that direction and blanched white with sheer terror! The gate was at least 200 meters tall and a huge misshapen 'thing' that looked like the 'Master of the Night' from 'Fantasia' was bending over to snatch it from the wall at its feet!
"Oro the Fxxxing Hell is that thing! Kami help us all if it gets in here!" screamed a terrified Yuri.
