"My pee tool would definitely punch this down!"


Kaumirran gave him a skeptical look. Or she would have if he glanced down at the comm screen. "I have my doubts." Her voice conveyed the look in case he happened to have missed the visual cue. "Men like to say that. They're always lying. I have a little finger that is just as effective."

Her attention shifted as it was drawn to approaching men. She did not know who they were. She only knew them as the guards, or at least individuals with the same profile.

Kaumirran looked over her readouts. The preflight check had been all well and good, but seeing the response once the parts were in motion was better. If something was going to fail, she would prefer that it happened before she was in the air, or worse: out of it.

"Who cares who they are?" she asked of the two guards. "We'll roast them as we slide by.  Problem solved, yo."

"Now, now," the Major lightly chides her.  "We can't roast them if they're his friends."

He also smiles in a naughty way, indicating that he tacitly agrees with her idea.

Kaumirran mimicked the Major's expression. She was all for removing obstacles before they became problems. Anything that was not helpful could be argued to be an obstacle.

 More importantly, anything that did not directly benefit her had significantly less value in her mercantile mind than it may to others. She was all about her. She was awesome and she was deserving of, well, pretty much anything that was not detrimental to her.

That brought her back to the current situation with the guards.

"Iiiii think that you underestimate the power of our engines."

"Iiiii think that you underestimate the power of our engines."


Engrish and Worsh are carrying what looks like a metal pipe (Engrish) and rope (Worsh) in their hands.  While they may have been raised in a threatening or 'ready' position when they approached the hangar, their arms have lowered considerably from the shock and surprise from the manner that the door was opened, and the 3 Battroids stepping outside.

"I'll take that as a 'no'." the Major directs at Björn.

"Light 'em up!" he bellows over the external speakers.  It's not clear if he's referring to the engines, or immolating Engrish and Worsh.


Engrish lets out a high-pitched squeal, and makes a run for the nearest shelter from the jet exhaust.  Worsh soon follows.

The Major's engines whoosh to 25% throttle, as he leaps into the sky.  On the way, he transforms to GERWALK, and continues to gain altitude while starting to accelerate forward toward the "West" as he gradually raises the throttle to 50%.

The highest buildings are about 5 storeys tall.  When the Major gets above those, and confirms the other two are airborne and following him, he'll transform to Fighter, and test his engines through 75% up to 100% throttle.

Kaumirran moved her machine toward the hanger door.  She paid close attention to the instruments as she as she covered the meters. If anything was going to fail, she would prefer that it happened while she was still on the ground and where the only resistance was a pair of guards. That meant that it would probably occur once she climbed high in to the open air. That was the way that these things went. If anyone was reality's bitch, it would be her.

As she approached the exit, she lurched her Eleven at the men on foot. It never hurt to hasten the retreat of her adversaries. With that little moment of joy out of the way, she took to the sky. She flew up after the Major.

"Hey," she yelped at the comm. "Where are you going? You promised that we were not leaving until I had my sister."

Both Engrish and Worsh fled even faster after Kaumirran lurched at them.



"Hey!  Where are you going? You promised that we were not leaving until I had my sister."

Before the Major can reply, the helmeted appearance of Khumirran appears on their comm screens on a general radio channel—different from the encoded one that the Steel Valkyries are using to communicate.

"Thunderbolt pilots, identify yourselves!" she barks in an authoritative voice.

The Major, Björn, and Kaumirran are all too flabbergasted to reply—some from shock, some from seeing Kaumirran's face on two different people on two communication channels at the same time.

A powerful quantum beam gun shot slices past the trio of Valkyries at an uncomfortably close distance.  It emanated from somewhere behind them, closer to the ground.

"Final warning!" Khumirran barks.  "Transform and land immediately!"


The Major gets busy initiating the radome and other recon equipment on his VF-11.  Concurrently he yells, "punch it!"

He adds, "Kaumirran, here's your chance!  Don't fall too far behind us!"

Kaumirran




Lucky break, her sister finding her.  The lucky portion was up for debate. Kaumirran titled the wing of her fighter, dipping to the side as the bolt streaked passed. It was most likely a futile gesture as it did not appear that the shot would have hit her, anyway. Still, possessing an instinct to dodge when people were shooting at you was a good one to possess.

Kaumirran realigned her jet, falling in behind and to the right of the Major. He had better be flying in the correct direction, or she would be forced to abandon him in favor of family. On that note, she adjusted her comm frequency to match that of the incoming signal. She had to identify herself, as per request.

“I'm the pretty one.”
