As the group leave the Bar with the tail unknowingly sandwiched between the group Shadow and Wisp take a few turns leading down a dark alleyway. Before he had a chance to escape the tail found himself with 4 guns pointing at him and no chance of escape.

“You are without doubt the WORST tail I've ever had the dishonour of being followed by. Who the hell are you and who in hell sent you?” Wisp looked the young boy up and down, he seemed to be about 18 and absolutely scared out of his wits. He almost felt sorry for the guy.

“I’ll tell you everything but first I have to know, Are you Wisp?” Wisp and Shadow exchanged incredulous looks.

“Look sonny” Shadow began “Your really in no position to be asking questions, however we are so answer the nice man”

“I want to help you I really do and I’ll tell you the whole thing if one of you is Wisp” The young man appeared to have a pair of stones hidden away somewhere because despite his fear he was giving nothing away. Wisp lowered his weapon as a gesture , the other three kept theirs trained on the man.

“I’m Wisp. Now talk”

“Wisp!” The man’s face began to beam with excitement “I never thought I’d actually meet you, you’re a big hero in the resistance, Well with the techs anyway. I was...”Wisp Interrupted him.

“Wait YOU’RE with the resistance? Boy they’re getting desperate at recruitment nowadays. Now we know who sent you lets start with some whys?”

“Oh of course I'm getting carried away.” The boy straightened himself out and took on a more serious composure. “You probably don’t know this but when you and your crew assisted the Dwarf with its mission you struck some serious blows to the Alliance. You are all wanted pretty heavily and you became sort of the poster guys for the underground movements. Well... most people thought you were dead as nobody has heard any proof of you being alive after Santos whereas the others have done various bits of work here and there.”

“They're alive? Seryn, Safe and everyone?”

“Yes last I heard. They're sort of private contractors for the resistance. Sykes And the crew of the Dagger do some more permanent work. Needy was here not too long back but he disappeared as he always does.”

“So I you here to recruit me? You wanna tell me all these stories to make me join your band of merry men?”

“No I'm here to warn you. There's been some serious com chatter about sparrows the past few days and after we saw you arrive we think it’s about you. There's also a Crimson assault squad that’s been deployed into the area”

“And NOW you tell us?” Wisp shouted “Captain we gotta bug out right now”

“Way ahead of you” shadow replied “Wash, Shiny get back to the ship Get her ready to fly ten minutes ago”

Wisp turned to the young resistance fighter “You have one minute to tell us anything else we should know then your gonna go tell your buddies that they're going to do everything they can to get us out of here. And if they do everything right I might decide to start thinking about signing up. One minute Start.”

(hours later Oreo and Kat join up in the cargo bay)

Kat- any sign...

Oreo- none. I'm going to go back on the brigde and see have a look out the windows. see what i can see.

(shiny nods in agreeance)

Kat- alright. ill make another round around the ship.

(oreo takes off for the bridge leaving kat alone.)

Kat- where can those to be?

( kat begins to make her trek back up the metal stair case, that lead to the bunks when the sight of a metal grated lying against the ships haul catches her eye)

Kat- what...what in the world. where did that come from.

(kat slowly makes her way around a bunk of crates, stacked atop one another. slowly a dark void present its self. kat slows her pace even more. she, grabs a steel pipe that had been lying on ground close to the crates)

Kat- listen up whoever you are! you choose the wrong side to try and hi-jack, so you got three seconds to bring your ass out here.

(kat stops short of the secret compartment and loudly begins to count, i hopes that oreo hears hers)

Kat- 1!

kat- 2!

(suddenly soft foots can be heard from inside. kat whisper to her)

Kat- thats it you gorram son of a bitch. come out so i can beat you with this pipe. on...

(slowly a body emerges from the dark...and not two far behind it, another emerges)


(kat drops the pipe and embraces the two lost children. storm and summer)

Kat- gorramit you two, have you two been hiding in there the whole time? you had oreo and i worried sick...well, at least me.

Summer- we are sorry kat. we did not mean to upset you. but we find something.

Kat- yeah i can see that. i wonder if the captain knows this is here.

(summer grabs kats arm)

Summer- No, kat. not that. We found this.

(storm steps forward, his arms out stretched towards kat and clutched in his fists, an old tattered shoulder bag.)

(Kat confused)

Kat- okay, you found an old bag. you know, im pretty sure this ship has had other owners and crew before the captain.

Storm- NO! it belongs to her.

Kat- okay, then give it back to summer then storm. and no more games. you guys are starting to freak me out alittle.

(Kat turns to walk away, but storm grabs kats other arm)

Storm- not summer. it belongs to the girl thats hiding.

Kat- what girl?

(both summer and storm let go of kats arms and in unison point towards the shuttle)

summer and storm- the girl that is hiding in there.

(suddenly an eerie feeling obsorbs kat)

Kat- are you two playing around?

Summer and storm- no, kat. we can feel her energy. she is hiding in there.

Kat- why didn't you tell us this before now?!

Summer- we tried to tell Oreo, but...

(Oreo's voice suddenly fills the air. the three look up towards the catwalk to see oreo making his way over to the shuttle)

Oreo- I was wrong, yeah, yeah, yeah.

(Oreo kneels down next to the shuttles door, planting his back against the wall. he pulls out a pistol from his hip holster and cocks)

Oreo- Whoever you are girly. get ready for Oreo...

Go n-eírí an bóthar leat. - May the road rise with you.


Wednesday, June 2, 2010 9:33 PM


Hearing the noise outside cammy gets ready knowing they will find her soon.

as the shuttle door starts to open cammy burst out catching the man off gaurd and throwing him to the ground as she runs out.

Leaping form the cat walk to the ground floor cammy gets ready to fight.

-Cammy Was Here


Tuesday, June 8, 2010 5:46 PM


(cammy lands just infront of kat and the twins. kat arms extended outwardly to her sides to provide some sort of protection to summer and storm. kat turns her head back towards the kids)

Kat- Run!

(the twins take off and a dead sprint. darting past cargo carts and then to the metal stair case leading up to the cat walk. kat returns her attention back to the unwelcome guest.)

Kat- who thehell are you?!

(the young woman stands at the ready, but does not give a reply. only the an intense look of survival. the young woman and kat, lock eyes as if to be engaging in a visual duel. Oreo, leans over the catwalks railing to get a better visual of whats going on.
the loud stomping sound of summer and storm feet fast approaching up the stairs, gives the signal to oreo that they're out of harms way.Oreo lets out a loud screeching growl and hurls himself over the railing. kat whinces at the sound she knew all to familiar.
landing directly behind the battle ready woman. at the sound of the loub "thud" of oreo landing behind her, she whips around only to come face to face oreo alter form.
sheer surprise overtakes the young woman at the new site of oreo. With one hand raised out in front of her dawning a tightly coupled fist, the other reaches behind her as she mutters one word.)

Young woman- Reaver!

(Oreo stands as tall as he can make himself and grins)

Oreo- No. Pissed Off is bout more of what i am. and lady,i'm very mean, when i'm pissed off!

Go n-eírí an bóthar leat. - May the road rise with you.


Tuesday, June 8, 2010 7:34 PM


Cammy sees the look in the large mans eyes. it feels her with fear that she hides. she knows she can't win but whould rather die tring Cammy Lunges at the man with all he weight behind one kick. it connects hard with the mans side the large man whinces slightly but doesn't slow down he grabs cammys leg and hold tight.

(oreo has a death grip on cammy leg. with one swift motion he hoists her up into the air, leaving her to dangle in his grasp)

Kat- i gotta say, she has alot of spunk, doesn't she?

Oreo- spunk or no spunk, it don't explain what shes doin here.

(the young woman beings to struggle, in an attempt to free her self)

young woman- let me filthy reaver!

oreo- oh look, it talks.

(kat moves in a little closer, a stern look on her face)

kat- listen, little girly. what are you doing on this ship?

(the young woman continues to struggle. kat quickly loses her patients and grabs one of the womans hands.)

Kat- answer me, or oreo here is going to pull you apart! we don't take to having...

(in an instant the young woman delievers a devastating blow to kats face send her crashing to the ground. oreo, quickly grabs the woman by her shirt, turning her right side up, only to be confronted with a small circular device that explodes upon impact as she crushes it into his chest, sending oreo as well falling to the ground.
the woman drops to her feet as oreos grip releases. the young woman, retrieves another circular device from a pouch and throws it oreo. once again, a devastating explosion thunders through out the cargo hold. Oreos body is launched into the air and quickly back down, landing almost eight feet from where he originally had been brought down.
the msyterious woman, retrieves another one of her powerful devices and slowly walks towards oreo. ready, just in case he gets up. within a short moment, she stands next oreo, looking down at him. his breathing shallowed, and his atler form had worn off. kat, struggles to gain her composeor as she makes her way to her feet. the twins on the catwalk, peering down onto the mayhem that was taking place right in their home.
the young woman catches a glimpse of kat out of the corner her eye and turns her head in kat direction. wide eyed and surprised at the damage that had taken place and the fall of her brother, kat once again locks eyes with the strange woman.)

Kat runs to check on Oreo

-Cammy Was Here


Thursday, June 10, 2010 7:35 PM


(kat dives to oreos side)

Kat- Hey,hey hey! Oreo, you okay?!

(Oreo slowly stir)

Oreo- wha...what...gorramit! what hit me?!

(Kat uses her head to motion at the unconscience woman laying motionless on the ground)

Kat- she did. i think she used some sort of high grade concusion bomb.

(Oreo dizzily struggles to his feet)

Oreo- im going to kill her....move!

(Kat slaps oreo in the back of the head)

Kat- hey! i put her out, she's not going anywhere knucklehead. just tie her up and put her in a bunk and we'll waiting for the captain to come back.

(oreo gives kat angry look)

Kat- do it.

Oreo- you're lucky you're my sister.

(kat cracks a smile)

Kat- not just your sister, but your "big" sister.

(oreo rolls his eyes, stands up and proceeds to find rope to tie up the layed out invader. moments later oreo returns with some heavy rope and proceeds to tying up the young woman. kat watches on, keeping a close eye on the woman.)

Oreo- there, if she comes to, ain't no way shes gonna get outta there.

Kat- i wonder who she is?

Oreo- don't matter, stowaway. fed. i say we just put out her lights right now!

((Kat throws up her hands in annoyance)

Kat- Seriously? kill her? look at her. she's just a girl.

(Oreo folds his arms and glares at kat)

Oreo- So! she snuck on board, didn't she?

Kat- and kicked your butt.

Oreo- Thats beside the point! she snuck on board, then started settin off them bombs. wreckin the place. if she can do all that, shes old enough and dangerous by my book!

Kat- well, go back and read the chapter about you picking her up and putting her in a bunk still the captain gets back.

(once again oreo rolls his eyes at his sister and lets out a deep sigh, before reaching down and picking up the limp body and throwing it over his shoulder.)

Oreo- still is a bad idea, just to let you know.
i got that feelin.

(suddenly, oreo stumbles. he catches himself on a couple of nearby stacked crates. kat rushes to his side.)

Kat- hey, you ok?

Oreo- yeah, i'm fine. things just went all bendy for a second. i'm gonna go secure her and go, lay down. if you need me, i'll be in my bunk.

(kat watches as oreo slowly makes his way up the stairs to the bunks. every so often seeing him rub his head. kat mutters to herself)

Kat- we need to find that serum. you're dying.

(not to long after only reaches the bunks.)

Oreo- now, whos bunk shall you frequent? shiny, will kill me if i put you in hers, so will the cap and wash...hey, the new guy, won't mind. and even if he does, i'll just shoot him. Ha!

(Oreo opens the hatch and drop the woman down. her body landing with a loud "Thud". Oreo makes one more visual check and closes the hatch and locks it.)

Oreo- that should hold you still the crew gets back.

(satified, oreo heads for his bunk.)

Go n-eírí an bóthar leat. - May the road rise with you.


Sunday, June 13, 2010 7:07 PM


Cammy wakes sleepy and in pain i takes a moment for her to realize where she is then jumps up alert. suprised they didnt kill her she looks around the bunk. she find a few tools some she cant even ID. after more serching she finds a small vent. surely she could fit, it was bolted she looked around with all this stuff there had to be something to undo it...she finds a small object points it at the vent and hits a button nothing happens she tries another nothing... several strange devices later the vent opens cammy climbs in and heads down the vent system looking for a way out.

“Sir our scouts report that 2 associates have returned to the ship”

“The main target?” Questioned Captain Brayden Keith without looking up from his map. Keith was a poster boy for the CS special forces. 6ft3 with dark hair, a square jaw and a thousand yard stare he was handsome and confident, A born leader with an aptitude for combat. Keith was actually the Fifth soldier from his genome to be produced and enrolled into active duty. The original DNA had come from a Cameron James and The military had liked him so much they’d had him cloned and kept bringing a new one into the fray when the previous was killed.

“He was still talking to the resistance messenger boy with the third associate, Sir”

“Then ignore the others for now, I don’t want anyone jeopardising this mission over secondary’s.” He referred down to the map in front of him; it was a detailed layout of the docking area with all the ships stalls and exits marked. “I want entanglement nets set up here, here, and here. I want undercover operatives moving this market, light weapons nothing visible not even coms. The assault teams are set up here and here I need you to make sure that everyone is carrying stuns no live fire. I don’t care about civilian casualties but the target is wanted alive. This box here” He pointed to a yellow shaded box in the middle of the map “Is the kill box. As soon as he enters here all teams are go. Radio silence throughout.”

Another scout ran into the room panting and through up a salute “Sir target is headed towards landing area”


Saturday, June 19, 2010 8:30 AM


Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

Wisp and Shadow escorted the messenger to a rundown building near the landing docks.

“You sure this is the place?” Wisp asked incredulously, the windows were boarded up and the door showed signs of being kicked in on several occasions.

“It’s just a front into the tunnel nexus, it doesn’t get many visitors as you can imagine.”

“Right you go in there and you tell your Boss if we make it out of here alive I’ll rendezvous with a cell on another planet, BUT if this goes south then the resistance will never get my help deal?”

“Deal. Our surveillance hasn’t seen any signs of this assault squad in the town so hopefully you guys can get out before they track you down.”

He entered the building and Shadow and Wisp headed out towards the docking area at a fast trot. They didn’t want to appear too much in a rush in case CS scouts spotted them. The docking area was simply a strip of land on one edge of the town where rows of ships and maintenance shacks stood facing the edge of the towns houses with stalls and carts filling the place in between. People milled forwards and backwards trading and selling, organising travel and bringing in supplies. The pair settled into a throng of people and headed towards Tranquillity.

About halfway there the stalls opened up leaving a little square of dust, it was as they crossed the square that the snipers opened fire tearing up the ground around them. Instinctively both of them dropped to the ground and took cover in the stalls as men from all sides drew side arms and laid down crossfire against them. To make matters worse two five man assault squads came and occupied positions on either side.

“Well” Shouted Wisp above the stunner fire “Were screwed now”


Sunday, June 20, 2010 1:39 PM


cammy finds another vent and opens it droping into the gallery she lands on a chair and loses her balance falling to the ground with a loud crash. she is up in moments and runs off after a while of running finds herself in the cock pit.

-Cammy Was Here


Sunday, June 20, 2010 4:55 PM


Shiny looks at wash, "a guest"?!
Shiny pulls her her gun that she keeps tucked into the back of her pants.
Wash, "Shiny you think you really need that"?!
Shiny, " not sure, but the feeling I got back at the bar with the Capt and wisp....well One never knows.
Shiny and wash leave the cargo bay to see about the new "guest".

...Also, I can kill you with my brain.


Sunday, June 20, 2010 8:02 PM


Shiny and Wash make there way to the bridge.

cammy hears them and hides next to the door where she can't be seen.

Wash walks in the door and is greeted by a quick punch to the gut he doubles over he drops to his knees and grabs cammy.

Wash-Shiny Get Her!

shiny right behind wash quickly lands a hit on cammys head with the handle of her gun.

cammy hits the ground unconscious wash follows after.


Monday, June 21, 2010 7:06 AM


Shiny stands there holding the gun pointed at cammy
when she hears footsteps behind her. Knowing who it is, Shiny turns her head slightly.
"Oreo, Whats going on here and who is this?!
Shiny cocks the gun, "the capt ain't gonna like knowing someone other than crew is on this ship."
Shiny, sternly address the girl, "who are you"?!
(Wash slowly gets up onto his feet).
The crew stands around looking down at cammy.
Shiny shoots Oreo a Glare.... waiting for someone to answer.

...Also, I can kill you with my brain.


Monday, June 21, 2010 9:20 AM


Cammys head is throbbing but she doesn't show the pain on her face.

she looks up and around at everyone just to make sure theres no way out once she knows she can't get out she starts to talk.

Cammy-My name is Pandora she lied

it was her nickname so it wasn't a complete lie

Cammy-I use to live at the market untill your ship came and i was looking for a ride. It was all good and fine until he came along pointing at oreo and now this!

She rubs her head slightly where shiny hit her.

-Cammy Was Here


Tuesday, June 22, 2010 7:25 AM


Shiny still pointing the gun listens to what
Cammy is saying. She lowers her gun slowly "Pandora
you say?" shiny scoffs knowing Cammys lying.
"Well you better pray you don't open Pandora's box once the captain catches drift your here".
Shiny puts her gun into the back of her pant's
shiny looks at Oreo and walks away before she leaves the bridge shiny turns and looks at Cammy
"if you hungry there's some food in the galley, it's not much but it will do, I'm sure Oreo will
show you."
with that shiny leave and heads to the cargo bay
once there she stands at the open hatch wondering
how the Capt and wisp are doing. Wash walks up next to her.
Wash, " It's so quiet out there."
Shiny, " sure is."

Shiny hits the button to close the hatch, she stands and watches as the hatch slowly closes.
Shiny, "Wash ever get the feeling we are being watched"?
Wash, ""sometimes,why?"
Shiny, "well, I'm starting to feel like this is one of those times."

...Also, I can kill you with my brain.

Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

Shock blasts rocketed overhead as tranquiliser darts impaled the ground and Stalls around all sides of The Captain and Wisp. They bunkered between two overturned stalls defended from the onslaught by wooden planks and the shear grace of god. They laid down defensive fire over the barricade but it was largely for show, they’d only come bearing side arms and they were no match for an assault squad determined to bring them in. Outgunned and Outmanned Wisp thought desperately of an escape plan, but sadly all the scenarios in his mind ended the exact same way. The future was looking much less then pleasant.

Close by Captain Keith was also having a bad time though relative to Wisp it was practically heavenly.

“How the Hell did those Snipers Miss?!?!?” He screamed at the streams of scouts in the command posts “If This hits the fan they better disappear or I’ll shoot them myself.”

“Sir Ground teams are reporting the target has bunkered down in light cover and stun weapons can’t reach them. They request live ammo Allowance and Shock grenades Sir”

Keith didn’t know which scout had reported this info so he didn’t even bother addressing anyone’s general direction. “Live fire allowance is denied. Repeat DENIED. Shock grenades are granted but not to be aimed within 5 feet of the targets defences. I want...”

“Sir!” A young ensign interrupted from a lookout on the far side of the room. Keith shot the young man an angry glare
“YES?”He snarled

“Sir there’s large group of people entering the square from the south. They appear to be armed and...Wait... Sir They’ve opened fire against our troops.

'Great' thought Wisp to himself 'You sail round the verse quite happily for years and then you go and do a good deed and then universe decides to bend you over and do all those horrible things its been saving up for you'

Energy blasts flew all around them when suddenly a second sound breached the chaos. This one was of Live rounds.

"Jesus now they're really trying to kill us!" Wisp shouted to the Captain who was wildly laying down covering fire. But as the gunfire went on the sounds of the Stun weapons became less and less. Taking his life in his hands Wisp peaked above the barricade. Approaching from the south were a rag tag team of men and women carrying a variety of weapons in all shapes and sizes. These werent an organised Alliance assault team, this was the resistance.

The ambush by the resistance took the Alliance completely by surprise, also the ban on live rounds meant they were entirley outgunned as well as outmanned by the approaching tide of Guerilla fighters. Even when the alliance shots did hit home the resistance fighters were only stunned and were back fighting only more pissed shortly after. It didnt take long for the wave to reach Wisps position where he was greeted by a man in his late 50's sporting a large grey beard and an eyepatch, the true resistance stereotype.

"Im General Dickinson. You boys sure know how to make an entrance. Where you parked we'll cover you whilst you get away"

"Where at dock 32A Its not far" Shouted Wisp above the now deafening roar of several dozen weapons of various calibres exploding around him "we owe you big time for this one"

"Yea you do boy, You better be as important as they say you are or im gonna shove my foot so far up your ass I'll..." The end of this sentance was cut short by the appearance of a gatling gun mounted on a side car appearing beside them. Dickinson began to rest two shotguns on the corner of an overturned stall and begin pounding down shells into the now scrambling forces behind. Wisp and the Captain needed no second instruction as they began to run towards the Tranquility keeping low and to cover through the deadly exchange.


Thursday, July 8, 2010 3:45 PM


(the crew slowly files out of the galley leaving only oreo, kat and cammy behind. cammy stares at the floor. kat rears back in her chair glaring at her. oreo, stands, back against the wall, his arms folded also glaring at cammy.)

Kat- youre in some hot water with shiny.

Oreo- i can handle her.

Kat- shes gotta alot tougher. shes hardly the fun loving girl i used to know. but, i guess with all this crew has been through, shes had no choice but to.

(oreo remains silent)

Kat- you're lucky you know. Oreo is sick. the only reason you were able to get the drop on him.

(cammy looks up at kat)

cammy- sick?

Kat- yeah, as you know, he's part reaver. an alliance experiment, just like the children. alliance has been trying to get them back over this past year.

(cammy confused)

cammy- so why is he sick?

kat- he's a weapon. you think the alliance wouldnt create something like him without a fail safe. he's dying.

(cammy stares at oreo, whois still standing silent against the wall, his eyes now closed)

cammy- so are you telling me this?

(kat smiles)

kat- just want you to know how lucky you are to still be in one piece. oreo, here is very protective of this crew and ship.

cammy- and his sister?

Kat- yeah. you should eat. captain should return soon. that might be the last meal you get to eat for a long while.

(kat stands up and leaves the galley, followed by oreo.)

cammy- Oreo.

(Oreo stands outside the galley as he listens to cammy and wash talk. anger surges through his body, but he doesnt know why. he grits his teeth together and clinches his fist.)

Oreo- everything is blurry. gorramit, i can't even focus on nothing. that little rat of a girl took me out with those ruttin toys of her...

(inside the galley wash stops mid sentence)

Wash- did you hear something?

(cammy looks towards the galley entrance way)

Cammy- i think we have an ease dropper.

(Wash gets up and makes his way to the doorway. he pokes his head out only to peer out into an empty corridor.)

Wash- humpf. must be hearing things. Then again, with oreo on this ship, Ha! who knows.

(Wash returns to his conversation with cammy. within the shadows of the corridor oreo slinks out silently.)

Oreo- i gotta go find Kat.

Go n-eírí an bóthar leat. - May the road rise with you.

Standing in the cargo bay exhausted from the gunfight and subsequent escape, Wisp and Shadow catch their breath.

Shadow tries to remember if everyone is on board
but the pain from the bullet wound is making things fuzzy.

Shadow closes the hatch and hits the 'com:
"Everyone, this is the captain. Report."

He turns to Wisp:
"Looks like your friends won't be joining us."

"Wash, if your on the bridge, prepare for take-off." - TRANQUILITYS LEVEL 5 [SECURE CHANNEL]

Oreo- I heard.

Wash- ok, well-well, im going to go to the bridge and get us in going to go now.

Captian- Oreo, i ain't in the mood right now.

Oreo- then what did you need me for then?

Oreo- she snuck on cap! them brat kids found her out and when we tried to catch she...

(Oreo stops, to embarrased to say anything more.wisp stares at Oreo.)

Oreo- What Are You Starin at?! Yo got a probalem with your eyes or something?!

(Wisp cracks a smile and throws his hands up as if to say "I give Up". Oreo, begins to growl low readying to pounce on wisp within an instance, but the captain snaps back his focus.)

Captain- As soon as i get patched up, i want you, kat, the twins and this mystery girl in the galley. Dong Ma!

Shadow winces as the bullet is pulled out of his back and dropped into a pan next to him.
He walks over to the 'com and hits the button.:

Elbarto walks into the galley.

Kat: Where have you been?!

El: I had some stuff to take care of planetside.

Kat: Whats more important than the crew?

El: Nothing, I figured you guys could handle things without me for a bit.

Kat: Well we did. What did you do anyway?

El: I was summoned.

Kat: Summoned?! What does that mean?

El: I can't tell you. Just trust that it was in everyone's best interest. Have I ever steered you wrong?

Kat: Well no.... Where's your arm candy?

El: Don't call her that. Claire needed to be on site for some plans to be completed.

Kat: Ooohh Mr. Mysterious all of a sudden.

El:(Rubs his eyes) Just drop it ok. I'm here now and that's what matters

(Oreo is next to enter the galley. he eyes elbarto as he walks and gives him an angry sneer.)

El- well, well, well. if it isnt the resdient reaver. good to see youre still alive.

(Oreo stops and stares at El)

Oreo- whats that pose'd to mean?

El- nothing, i figured you'd be dead by now, but you're not. so, hey! how you're doing?!

(Oreo loses his temper, instantlty "Changing". he lurches towards el who quickly pulls out a blade. within seconds, El has the blade to Oreo's throat. Oreo has his huge hand wrapped around Els. His long sharp finger nails digging into his flesh. Oreo squeezes slighty. One of his nails making a small bloody puncture)

Oreo- Im going to rip your throat out!

(El winces with a slight grin on his face as he flick his wrist. Instantly a line rerd blood forms on the side of Oreo neck as it begins to bleed.)

El- Yeah? you're going to rip my throat out?! and im going to put a HUGE smile on that arrogant, smug face of yours!

Cammy stares wide eyed at the sudden chaos she pulls her knees close to her chest looking more like a scared young girl then the Rogue Fugitive She Had Hoped To Appear As.

Cammy trys to sort the situation out in her head

Kat- Knock it off, the both of you! You'd figure as long as you to been together on this boat you two would be over all this by now!

(El cracks a smile)

El- Come on kat, we were just...

Kat- SHUT UP EL! Its not very often i blame you for the start of anything, but im blaming you this this time.

El- But Kat...

Kat- No more, just...shut up!

(oreo stands someone what stunned at Kats reactions. He knew what she had said was true. Oreo, was usually the cause of at least 80 percent of the rouble that happened on the ship. but nt this time. Oreo, catches a glimpse of cammy.)

(Oreo thinking to himself)

Oreo- Is that the same girl that wiped the floor with me using those bomb things. look at her now, shes like kid whos lost in a market and can't find her parents. weird.

(Kat and El continue to argue. Oreo continues to stare a cammy. Cammy takes a quick glance to see whats going on and notices Oreo looking at. She gasps in horror at Oreo's reaver form. Oreo, quickly realizes the situation from the look on cammy's face and shakes it off and return to normal.)

(Cammy squeezes her legs and knees as tight as she can to her chest.)

(cammy whipering to herself)

Cammy- make him go away. make him go away. make him go away. make him go...away

(Cammy slowly looks back, the sudden lack of oero's presense enticing her. )

Cammy- he's gone. just like that. gone. did...did he hear me?

Wash-Walks into the gallery seeing El and Kat arguing and Cammy Curled up in a chair.

Wash-Great a Family reunion...

Wash sits down across the table from cammy and desides against talking to her.

He sits in silents and waits for the captain.

The Captain walks in after checking the rest of the ship and hears the commotion.

"闭嘴 住嘴" (zhu zui) (shut up)

"...and where's My mechanic?
Looks like the Alliance shut down our 'com system,
but I just rewired a new one.

*Shadow tosses new key cards to the crew.*

Wash, keep us out of the Alliances' path.
Looks like we aint takin' on any other passenger just yet.
So lets all get reacquainted shall we...?"

Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

During a fire fight your body pumps out humongous amounts of adrenaline into your blood stream. It’s the old evolutionary fight or flight mechanism designed to stop you becoming dinner. Your senses are heightened to the point where it feels like your nerves are on fire. Time slows down to the point you can almost see the bullets as they fly past your head. Pain takes on no meaning as bullets and breaks go unfelt. All in all it’s pretty useful when you’re about to die. But nothing in life is without consequence, and adrenaline has a consequence like all things. Wisp was now paying the price for those fleeting minutes of apotheosis.

For starters his head swam with a hazy mist; it was difficult to concentrate on any one particular thought as they were all shrouded in a grey mist. Next comes the muscles. The aching burning sensation accompanied by twitching and shivers. Your skin still pours out a tide of sweat as your body battles to shed the excess heat it’s creating. Overtime you get used to the comedown but it’s still there. A cacophony of hormones and toxins released to push your soul to the very brink of possibility that turns into a monstrosity of pain and anguish.

But Wisp didn’t have time to bathe in the gentle pain. The Crimson squad had found him after years of anonymity. That conveniently coincided with his decision to help this group of strangers. The two events had to be correlated, the odds against were astronomical. But did that mean that someone here had betrayed him?

Wisp watched the interaction whilst mentalling forming a list of all the possible persons who could have betrayed him.

Group One: People from the resistance. At present they gained the most by setting him up then saving him at the last moment. He owed them a pretty big favour. However they wouldnt have know who he was until he started asking question's about Needy and that wasnt a lot of time to set up that brilliant ambush. Also its hardly their style to go to such great lengths to get someone to join up.

Group 2: Someone Entirley unrelated to him or the current events who happened to see him and recognise him from a wanted list. Possible but highly implausible.

Group 3: Someone who'd made him a long time ago and waited till now to set the trap. Again highly improbable due to the lengths he went to stay under the radar.

Group 4: One of the passengers rescued from Miranda who were dropped off at Aquila. Now the odds started increasing. But how would they have know who he was to defect on him? Perhaps they overheard something or recognised him.

And Finally came Group 5: The crew of Tranquility. Now most of these people seemed to despise the alliance, a good number of them were on the run themselves. But he had openly informed them of his shady connections in the past. Maybe one of them decided to turn him in in exchange for a clean slate. This crew of strangers he'd sacrificed so much for already. Could one of them had betrayed him so?

Now wasnt the time for accusations, firstly he needed more information. They needed to be observed to see if anyone gave up the slightest hint. The captain could probably be trusted as he had the most to lose and the least to gain from such a gamble. But nobody was free of suspicion...
