Here's Pt 2 of Ch 33 to enjoy. Toodles-K&K
"OK. First off I wanna apologize to Sub-Com Zoe Morton for replacing her with Ensign Nami Richards as my navvy here. (Zoe's aizu (eye) brows raised a millimeter or two) I do have a very special assignment for Zoe which I will explain to her later. Jon has divided his security forces into five teams. Each team is responsible for delivering a different set of prisoners to 'Seto Kaiba'. 'Ivy' (Lord Ivanhoe) and his team will handle the Lex Luthor group (The hanyou grabbed Ivanhoe before he could kneel at Kei's feet). 'Dog Boy' (Lord InuYasha) and tomos will have Viscious and his band of lunatics (IY fingered 'Tetsusaiga' his demonic sword). Ichigo and his guys and gals get the Orochimaru mob ("Action at last!" cried Ichigo and he tried to unlimber 'Zangetsu', his 'zambatou' soul reaping sword but Revy punched him in the arm and he desisted). Kouga? The Ichimaru clan is all yours, wolfie (Kouga snarled and showed his fangs until Zoe cleared her throat). Revy? Sorry but you've drawn the short straw I'm afraid. You get to drop off Johnny Berringer himself. OK, that's that. Jon has already picked your teams for ya. If there are no further questions (Kei paused but nobody spoke) Fine. Jon, you and your team leaders are dismissed. Yuri. Nami. Zoe. Please remain." commanded the Boss and the room quickly emptied out.
"Osawaru onegai. Sit down, please." invited the redhead and they all complied. "Zoe, you are replacing Nyssa on the 'Stargazer' and you'll be completing her star mapping mission for her. Suba (Subaltern) Ellen Rodgers will be waiting to escort you when we reach 'Seto K' so make sure your gear's packed up by then. In the meantime I would like you to show Nami here the 'space nav ropes' since she's my new navvy here instead of you. Yuri? ("Hai (Yeah)?" asked her bored exec) As of now command of the 'Angel 2' is yours. (Yuri's aizu (eyes) popped) Any questions, Zoe? Nai (No)? Then you and Nami are dismissed. Thanks for coming. Yuri. Stay." said Kei when her exec arose to leave with them.
"I'm leaving you in charge here, kid. You see I have a little mission of my own to do so I'll betaking the 'Raphael' (a shuttle) and Mugghi. After ya deliver all of our rowdies to Jason (Jason Shikamaru is the Kommandant at 'Seto Kaiba') I want ya to take the 'Angel' to 'Paladin' as quickly as ya can. Drop 'Starcrusher' off there along with our second year cadet trainees. Understood? (Yuri nodded) Then you are to go to 'Gallifrey' where I will try and rendezvous with ya. Nai (No)! Don't even ask me where the Hell I'm going because Charlie (Garner) won't gimme the coordinates until I'm outta the 'Angel's comm range. (Kei lowered her voice so much that Yuri had to adjust her comlink to hear her) Yuri, we may have another 'mole' aboard this ship so not a word of oro (what) I am about to say is to leave this room- understand? (Yuri nodded again) 'Black Ghost' took something else when he broke outta 'Seto K' with Johnny and his playmates. He er stole all the schematics for our very latest personal cloaking device- the 'Karma Chameleon' (Kei hesitated, bit her lip and then continued) and the chief research scientist of that project has jut gone missing. Her name is Dr Sally Mimoru and she vanished while away on holiday. My mission must have something to do with her disappearance. Look, I gotta go, Mugghi's waiting. Don't worry, kiddo. I'll relay ya as soon as I can. Remember. We may have a spy abord so don't trust nobody. TTFN (Ta ta for now) Vaccy. See ya soon." said Kei.
Yuri wished her luck and went up to the bridge where she told Gene and Han that the Boss was gonna grab some sleep and that she didn't wanna disturbed. Then she went to the ready room for a quiet think.
Kei grabbed her rucksack and duffle bag, picked up her plasma rifle, tapped her 'morphing' bracelet which put the red-headed tro-con into 3WA winter gear and battle armour and finally took her express lift down to the bays and an impatient Mugghi aboard the 'Raph' awaiting her arrival with Nammo.
"OK. Take off now and 'cloak' us, Mugghi." she ordered and the giant white neko (cat) purred. "Not a clue, Honey. This is Charlie Garner's show, not mine. He ain't gonna give us coordinates until we're outta comm range with the 'Angel' so I'm as much in the dark as about our destination as you are, tomo. Nammo, plug yourself into the system and scn for anythin strange. It's gonna be a few more hours before we're outta comm range so I'm gonna sack out. Trill me if ya need me." said Kei, stifling a yawn.
A few hours later Kei awakened with a start to a strange presence in the room!
Sorry my dear but I do seem to always show up after you have retired for the evening, don't I?" asked a slighly familiar voice belonging to the bearded floating head of the Time Lords' founder- Lord Rathelon!
"Rathy? Oro (What) the Sam Hell are you doing here?" asked the puzzled redhead.
"Did not Chief Lord Garner tell you that your next destination would be made known to you as soon as you were out of communications' range of 'Omega' (Quadrant), my dear child? Ah! For once I have not caught you in a state of dishabeille, have I?" replied the head. Kei glanced at the polished surface of her bulkhead wall and relaxe. Unlike the times of Rathy's previous 'drop in' visits the Boss was wearing a complete winter uniform sans (without) her boots, helmet and gloves of course. Howevr, she had not removed her battle armour yet.
She repped up a mug of java and returned his gaze coolly. "I thought Charlie was supposed to tell me where I'm off to, not you." she said. Rathelon frowned.
"We feared that the spies on your three ships might be monitoring your comm systems so Mr Galadriel (Vittorio Francisco Xavier Galadriel the Supreme Chief and God of the 3WA and the 'UG' whose nickname was 'God Himself') asked me to cme here in person to inform you, my child. In the 'Epsilon Quadrant' there exits a planet of alchemy known as--" he began.
"Christ! 'Amestris'? I've been there before, Rathy." she said disgustedly.
"Yes but you are not going there. 'Amestris' has a sister world of alchemy in a parallel dimension, however, this planet is much more violent and deadly. (He lowered his voice) It is called 'Krull', my dear." replied Lord Rathelon and Kei's mug crashed to the deck from nerveless fingers.
"The same place where Ivy's 'Glave' toy originated? I thought it was just a frigging myth! I gotta go there? Why?" asked a by now totally confused, puzzled, perplexed and annoyed redhead.
"To retrieve yet again that self same 'Glave'. It is your detiny, Keirran." he said quietly.
"My destiny? OK. How do I find it and why me?" asked Kei and she shucked off her battle armour.
"An ancient prophecy has described you in great detail. From your fiery red hair to your fierce Gaelic temper and this missive even gave your full name- 'Keirran Deirdre Maureen Edwina O'Shaughnessy O'Halloran' (Kei sat bolt upright on her bunk. Not even the 'GC' knew Kei's 'secret' Celtic name of Edwina) and it gave your birth planet as well- 'Workoh' in the mysterious 'Omega Quadrant' so like it or not Katie- you're the goods, kiddo. (Kei frowned) This epistle went on to say that you would be a female of extraordinary courage and valour. The 'Glave' is hidden within the highest mountain and it is immersed in a pool of burning lava. That is where your courage and valour come in. This flaming lava absolutely can not and will not harm you in any way, my child. Once you have the 'Glave' yu must find 'Garadonte', the Great Beast who enslaves'Krull' ad you must best him in single combat for it is he who keeps open he portal betwixt the two Universes. However, save the 'Glve' itself your weapons will be useless against him. That battle armour will not protect you from him either but that mail shirt wrought of Elfin 'mithril' given to you by those 'Elf Hunters' will. Whoops, I er almost forgot something, my dear. 'Garadonte' is protected by a band of 'Slayers' who are well nigh invincible, however, they are still mortal beings- they can be killed. One thing more- the fortress castle of this Beast remains in the same place for a single solar day. Then it moves elsewhere on the planet. I have given Nammo the navigational coordinates for 'Krull' already but the castle's locations are entirely random. Good luck, my dea child. Remember- al of the cosmoes are counting on you. Look to see me no more. Sayonara." said Rathelon and slowly dematerialized until all that remained of him were his bright aizu (eyes) and his 'Cheshire Cat's shit-eating grin.
