Flying down, the pilot of the hired launch, Pramod Hamelin, radios to Vijana Air Defence Control (a cooperative venture run out of Reval) the flight plan to Qiangdao. It's hot there, cooling down to the 60's celsius at night, normal people needing a chill suit, and even though the atmospheric pressure is only 1.1 atm, the heat causes unstable currents, affecting the handling of the craft.

Inside one of the clustered ad hoc structures of Ratfair, a crazy firefight has broken out, seven dead with multiple injuries, sadly two of the dead are Kuerzu and Theta, who in turn took down three thugs from inside a bar, one with an Machine Gun, who shot innocents as well, resulting in a crossfire as bystanders pulled weapons and got involved. Security only sniffed at the dead, a side comment that it's friday. Zhenya and Elton have a sad cargo to which meet Leon, Calson, and Otto on the tarmac of the landing zone.

The clock is still ticking on the ransom for Zhenya, one day left, and whether or not they know the mercenaries have been bribed and slipped away ...

Leon looks at his watch "bloody hell" he mutters, "where are they?" He scans the area taking in the surroundings, where can they be. He draws his duffel bag closer (which happens to have a couple of flash bangs and his carbine inside). Looking at the others he lights up a cigar (getting through these he thinks). "I'm not sure I like the way this is going folks, better get ready for trouble, he keys comms, anyone home?" he asks?

The sensible thing would have been to dash from shop to shop, hiding among the crowds. Escape and evade. But the idea of moving down-range of a Gimpy and hoping it doesn't spot us....

Zhenya gestured to the others, signalling "spread out, rapid move, grapple and suppress that GPMG before it can mow us all down".

A quick squeeze of Kuerzu's hand and off, dodging through the crowd, using innocent shoppers as cover as the range shortens.

It almost worked, but one of Heavy Weapons' cronies, coming out of the bar, spotted Kuerzu and called a warning. As the GPMG raised, ready to fire, Zhenya screamed "Look out! He's got a machine gun!", hoping to attract Security, and sprinted over the remaining distance. Not quickly enough to prevent a long burst ripping down the hallway, a burst that wildly sprays the area as Zhenya and Heavy Weapons struggle.



Arriving at the landing pad Zhenya is a silent, haunted figure, face set, thousand-yard stare, hands red with drying blood which also soaks large areas of jacket and skirt.

Elton will have to do any talking, Zhenya hasn't said a word since the fight.

On comms, "Yeah Leon, we are here. Things went really badly. We got Zhenya but the Cap and Theta didn't make it out, they put up a hell of a fight."

Copy that Elton" Not really knowing what else to say (especially over a possible open comm) Leon replies "that's shit news, I will text our coordinates so we can meet up, keep a eye on Zhenya, make sure for the time being she don't do anything too crazy" Leon signs off then looks at Carlson and Otto, "Well chaps the shit is going to hit the fan for someone!"

Puts comms away, even though she heard the conversation, says...

It's going to take to rent a taxi with a bed or box, and getting the corpses of Kuerzu and Theta back to the hired launch, Hamelin's reaction is "Aw, jeez ..." Except he helps with a tarp to lay them on in the cargo area, and wrap them up for the journey. His next question is "where to from here?"

We will call for a van style taxi to move our comrades to the launch.

Zhenya is very protective of Kuerzu, trying to carefully lift his body into and out of the vehicle alone ( of course, he is far too heavy, and reluctantly help is accepted ).

Calson steps out of the launch to help Zhenya and Elton with our crew mates, asking Otto to help. With a sad nod and a useless smile to Zhenya, will help get the bodies aboard. Comms "Leon ready to leave"

Leon tells the pilot that once the bodies have been loaded onto the shuttle then to transport us back to the Star. Leon will then give Carlson and Elton a hand. He wont say anything to Zhenya other than a gentle squeeze on her shoulder as he leaves her with Kuerzu and her grief. As he walks over to Carlson and Elton to help with the loading of Brother Theta he takes a double take, did he see Thetas hand move? ……. No surely not! He walks towards Theta no one could lose that much blood and still be alive could they?
