KW gang- I just posted my rather lengthy Proflile in messages and posted 15 pix in 'Angels & Tomos' album here. That will have to do until the admins here get the Profiles fixed. Here is Ch 35- Part 1 of AW. Enjoy. Toodles-K&K
DISCLAIMER: OK Kira, it's all yours. First I wanna thank Mr T for the use of his Angels and stuff. Then I wanna thank everyone else who has been allowing us to use their creations here like Thom Beers for the use of his ice road truckers Hugh, Drew, Rick, Eric, Alex and Bear. I took the liberty of naming the 3WA academy in Furool City on Shimougou after Mr Haruka Takachiho in honour of his creations- the Angels. How was that, Yuri? Great, kiddo. Oh hai it sure was, Kei! Now since we left ya up in the air last time let's get to Ch 35 without any further meandering, shall we? Ensign Oranamia (Nami) Richards, P.N.O.- Permanent Navigational Officer? How the Hell'd that happen? Where's the next port o' call? Who is this Dr Sally Mimoru? Who's Kira you say? Read on tomos all--
'The Scarecrow of Jakotsu' or 'Sally Tells the Truth'
Kira kept screaming and screaming and she just would not shut up so- Kei belted her. The kid sagged into the tro-con's arms just as a pounding began on the door.
"Two to beam up, Mugghi! Get us the Fxxx outta here and make it stat! Energize now, Furball!" trilled Kei and a few short nanoseconds later Kei gently laid the unconscious Kira Gordon on a bunk in Sally's suite. Sally stood there transfixed until Kei shook her roughly by the shoulder. "Take care of the kid, Doc. I gotta get us outta here!" said Kei.
"Brace for liftoff. Thrusters to maximum, Mugghi. Engage." said the Boss while she dropped into her pilot's seat and strapped in. Five minutes later she set the 'Raphael' on 'George' and went back to Sally and Kira. Sally had removed Kira's bloody school uniform, shoes and stockings and had thrown a quilt over the unconscious schoolgirl. (When Kei hits she hits hard no matter who ya are!) She had used the first aid kit and had patched up Kira's bleeding nose and jaw. She used plenty of 'Kolacydyl' and 'Synthenol' (like 'Hydrogen Peroxide' and 'Alcohol' on Terra) to stave off infection. Then she wet a cloth with 'Bacteryl' (a pain killer) and sponged off the poor kid's face with it. Next she sponged her down with cool water and laid a cool cloth on her forehead. Then she rounded on Kei.
"Ya got any ice? Why did you have to deck the poor kid, Kei?" admonished Sally Mimoru angrily.
"Ice Holo Pack. Cold." commanded the redhead and handed Sally an ice holo pack a few seconds later. "I thought I told ya once. Just ask the replicator for whatever the Hell ya need, Sally. Gomen (Sorry) I had to hit her but she was screaming down the house. Excuse me. Mugghi? Relay Anton (Gustav) and tell him to send a field unit to 'Klaes 4' and arrest the headmaster at 'Jakotsu Academy'- stat. His name is Simon Christopher Crow. Why? Tell him he's 'Hellfire' the 'Scarecrow', that's why, Furball! Tell Anton that Dr Sally Mimoru and Kira Gordon are both with us and I'm gonna stash 'em someplace safe. Where? I won't say where over a non-secure link. I'll contact him in a few days. (Kei gave the rep machine a few orders and handed Sally a pair of green and white pajamas for Kira) Here ya go, Sally. Can't have the kid catching cold now, can we?" said the Boss.
"Thanks. By the way just where the Hell is this 'safe place' we're going?" asked the scientist suspiciously.
"A ski lodge in the Girol Mountains on 'Shimougou' that I used awhile back. That's where I found my 'KR' a couple of years ago. OK, the ship's on 'George' so we can take it easy for a few days. Ya want some food? (Sally nodded while she zipped up Kira's pajamas) Mind if we eat on the bridge? (Sally smiled and shook her head) C'mon then and we'll let the kid sleep. I'll rep us up something good." said Kei. She and Sally went forward to the bridge and had a scrumptious meal.
"Who's 'KR'?" asked Sally, her mouth full of Chateaubriand.
"My godson. I saved his life when he was just a baby a year ago or so. He's on the 3WA force now and the 'Avenging Angels' is his team's code name. Mine and Yuri's is 'Lovely Angel'." replied Kei and she took a healthy swig of whiskey. Kei was still wearing her 'JA' school uniform togs while Sally had changed back into one of Kei's snazzy new 'Marshall' uniforms and sandals. The ash blonde stared open-mouthed at the taller redhead.
"Excuse me, Boss but from what you just said, isn't 'KR' only two years old now? So how the Sam Hell's he a 3WA operative already? I know you guys start them young but isn't two a little ridiculous?" she asked. Kei grinned and lit up a cheroot.
"He's from our future, Doc. Ironic though it may seem Keitarou, Keitarou Riff is 'KR's full name, is actually older than me and Yuri, my exec! It is a bit complicated but hey ain't quantum mechanics your field of expertise? (Sally was eating her delicious repped chocolate mousse and nodded) Well then, get this, kiddo. I dunno how much information the 'brass hats' released to the holovid papes (23rd Century newspapers) folks but my AD 2140 counterpart who is or was also named Kei and was also a 3WA tro-con accidentally blew a frigging hole in the Universe rupturing the delicate space/time continuum back in the 22nd Century and ever since then we've been trying to plug up the leak. People and things have been coming and going so much it's been like an ancient Terran Grand Central Station or Gare du Nord on my ships. 'KR' and Annie Hathaway, his partner came through and they're still here." explained Kei and she poured out java for them both.
"Annie Hathaway? Ella's little girl? She's only three for God's sake!" yelped Sally and she just about tipped over the trays when she jumped up.
"Not in AD 2268 she ain't. She's all grown up and she's 'KR's partner in the 'Avenging Angels'. They're accomplished pilots and they both pilot 'time ships' which ain't been invented yet. I'm their commander they tell me but by then I'm ancient! I'm almost forty! Ya know oro (what) they got me doing now? Running the 'Takachiho Academy'. Now you answer something for me, Doc. Oro (What) the Hell do you and pigtails back there (Kira) know that makes the pair of ya so Fxxxing damned important to Johnny Berringer and his misfit army of psycho weirdos?" demanded Kei. Sally shook her head and grinned.
"Sorry, ma'am but that is strictly classified information. Need to know basis at the highest level stuff. Only high echelon top level personnel have the kind of clout and security clearances needed for me to tell them that kind of information, Honey. A 'Red Card' carrier for example." replied Sally, pouring a glass of Chianti for herself.
"Ya mean something like this one here?" said the tall redhead nonchalantly flashing her 'Red/White/Aoishi (Blue)' 3WA/'UG' holovid ID at her.
"What the Hell! YOU have a 'Red/White/Blue' card? But they're only issued by the supreme commander- 'God Himself'!" yelled the startled researcher as she read and then re-read the austere signature on Kei's ID holovid- Vittorio Francisco Xavier Galadriel!
"So ya can consider this a direct order from me, Acting Ensign Sally Mimoru. I hereby command and order you to tell me oro (what) the Fxxxing Hell your research is really all about! I am waiting, Doctor." fumed an angry Kei.
"You didn't buy the 'Mookie the Chameleon' story?" sighed Sally and Kei shook her head.
"Not for a minute, Blondie. Oro (What) is your game and tell me the truth this time, Ensign!" replied Kei.
She swallowed her wine and poured herself another. Taking a sip she began. "Kira and I have discovered a way to open a time and space portal to an exact location at a precise date and an exact time. We have invented a device to control these actions which we call a 'time sight' but it is still in its very early stages of development, ma'am. We have yet to test it, Kei so it's too damned dangerous to use yet." explained the worried scientist.
"So that's how Johnny Boy was gonna blackmail the Universe into making him its imperial ruler. More like an intergalactic travel agent he'd be but he'd charge plenty for the service and anybody who crossed him= (Kei made a face) Can you imagine Robin Hood and his merrie men loose in modern day Los Angeles? Attila the Hun in 'Moravian City' in the 23rd Century? On Mars? Jack the Ripper on 'Gunsmoke' in the 22nd? The list of possibilities is endless! And they call us the 'Dirty Pair'! (Kei hates that nickname by the way as does Yuri, Marlene Angel and Kome Sawaguchi). We ain't done half as much damage as they'd do in different time eras and on different worlds! And John's cronies are scattered out there somewhere as well! Mugghi, take us directly to that safe house I told ya about. Oro (What)? Nai (No), forget about 'Gallifrey'. Oro (What)? Nai (No), do not relay where we are going to anyone especially the vacuumhead! That damned loudmouthed minx would blab it t everyone and Kami (God) help us all if Starfire ever found out! She's the biggest blabbermouth in the Cosmoses! Yeah, change course immediately, like now, Furball!" trilled Kei.
