By Michael Mulhollon

Action / Scifi

Chapter 1

“Why?” Michael asks himself as he sat at the edge of a bed (already dressed) in a hotel room. Chloe called out, “Are you ready?” She opens the bathroom door and sees Michael slumped over as if looking down at his feet and Chloe looked concerned and asks, “Michael?” She walked in and sat next to Michael as he looks up and says, “I’m sorry, I was just tying my shoes!” Chloe said, “Bullshit.” He sighed and Chloe asked, “Are you ready or are you going to complain some more?” Michael got up with a groan and said, “Okay, I’m ready.” He pulled out a hand held disk device and pressed the center button and a set of numbers appeared and Michael looked puzzled and said, “Hmm.” Chloe asked, “What?” Michael replied, “I sweat theses coordinates are different from where we left the ship.” Chloe sighed, “You must have forgotten. Just as long as we aren’t beamed into outer space or worse.” He shrugged his shoulders and dropped the device between them before he pressed the button again and as they stood close to the device they dematerialized.

They rematerialized and looked around and saw people backing away from them as they looked startled to see Michael and Chloe. Chloe looked confused and said, “What the hell?” A bartender yelled, “Hey! This is a bar, not a transporter pad!” Michael sighed and said, “I knew something was odd.” Someone yelled, “Hey!” They looked behind and saw Minos stopping right before them, out of breath, and he gasped, “We got to go!” Chloe and Michael looked at him as if he’s crazy and Chloe asked, “Why?” A deep, male, husky voice yelled, “There they are!” They all looked up behind Minos and saw (to their shock) a handful of Nova Corps. Michael immediately grabbed a table, dropping beer everywhere, and directed the table top at the Nova Corps. shielding himself, Chloe and Minos as one of the officers fired the hold beam, but diffracted off the table. A big, muscular, Rhino faced officer bellowed, “Get them!” Two yellow painted face officers ran after them, only to have Michael charged and rammed therewith the table as it smashed and the two officers were thrown back, in the air, till they smashed the bar windows facing outside leaving some of the Nova Corps. looking back in shock. Chloe then ran forward, jumped on another table and as an officer tried to grab her she flipped over him, grabbed another round the neck and flipped him over as she kicked two others in the face. Minos jumped off Michael’s back and landed on to others as he kicked their chests and pinned them on the floor. One of the officers pulled out his gun and aimed at Minos’s face only for Michael to grab a beer bottle and smashed it against the side of the officer’s face, knocking him to the floor unconscious and blue blood oozing out of his right temple. Another officer grabbed Michael from behind, but Michael broke his grip with ease and slammed his chest at the edge of the bar before grabbing a full pitcher of beer and smashed it over the officer’s head with beer either pouring over his head or splashing everywhere as he fell to the floor unconscious.

Minos then charged up behind a towering, muscular, blue man that was about to punch the back of Chloe’s head and he grabbed the blue man’s back collar and yanked him down slamming his back to the floor before making a single kick at the man’s head knocking him out. Chloe looked at the knocked out blue giant and Minos in shock and she said, “Huh.” Minos yelled, “Let’s get out of here!” And all three of them ran out in the middle of a bar fight and tried dodging anyone that tried to punch or kick them. Once they are outside more Nova Corps. arrived and Michael and the others hid within the crowd in the marketplace till they passed them and entered the bar. Michael then wrapped his arm around Minos’s shoulders and before Minos knew it he felt intense pain on his left shoulder and he stifled his yelp as Michael smirked and spoke, “Start talking.” Minos gasped, “Ambushed by Nova Corps. We hid the ship and changed the coordinates so I can meet you while Goku is waiting at a restaurant.” Chloe said, “Take us there puny.” Michael let Minos go as he massaged his left shoulder and Michael and Chloe followed him as they approached a fancy restaurant and Michael and Chloe looked in awe. Chloe said, “You’ve got to be kidding me.” They watched through one of the viewing windows as Goku sat behind a table chowing down on a large plate of food while next to him are towering stacks of empty bowls and plates.

Michael reacted first and walked fast into the restaurant with Chloe and Minos following him and when they were inside they see almost all of the customers that were eating were staring at Goku in awe as he continued to eat till Michael yelled, “Goku, what the hell bro!” Goku immediately stopped eating and looked up at Michael to see his confused/angry look while Chloe stared at Goku in awe and Minos just looked down at the floor and shook his head. Goku smirked and said, “ Hey guys!” He put down the plate and rubbed the back of his head as he laughed and said, “Sorry, I was just very hun...” Before he knew it, Michael shoved two fingers up Goku’s nose as Goku yelped in pain and is forced to stand up as Michael glared at him and said, “Follow me.” A waiter came up and yelped, “Hey! Who is going to pay for all this?” Chloe looked frustrated and she pulled out a small bag and dropped it on the table to show units labeled “20” and she said (to the waiter’s awe expression), “Keep the change.” And Michael walked outside with Goku following close behind, as Michael still has his fingers up his nose, as Chloe and Minos followed.

Once they were outside Michael let go of Goku’s nose and Goku rubbed it and Chloe said, angrily, “You better have a good explanation Goku!” Goku looked up at them, hurtful, and said, “Sorry, I was just so hungry that after I ate the first plate I just got carried away as the food was just too good.” Michael ignored his reason and asked, “Where is the ship Goku?” Goku looked worried and replied, “Actually, I don’t know.” They all gawked at Goku and Michael shook his head as if he has trouble hearing and asked, “Excuse me?” Goku cringed and replied, “Someone stole our ship.” Still dealing with the shock of the news Chloe asked calmly, “Who has it then?” Goku looked dumbfounded and replied, “Uh...” Chloe looked up at Michael and raised her right clinched fist and asked, “Do you want me to jog his memory?” Goku looked frightened and yelped as he waved his hands, “Okay, okay! It was space pirates!” Michael and Chloe looked at him dumbfounded and Chloe yelled, “SPACE PIRATES!” People nearby looked at them in shock or wonder as Michael and Goku cringed back and Chloe yelled (while Michael tried to shush her), “YOU COULDN’T HANDLE A FEW SPACE PIRATES!” Goku replied, as he looked terrified, “They surprised me from behind and knocked me out! When I came to the shuttle was already flying away and I didn’t want to use my powers to draw the attention of the Nova Corps. as they were nearby!” Chloe glared at him, menacingly, while Minos looked down at the deck and Michael turned away as he ran his hands over his hair as he breathed with frustration. Goku then pulled a small device from his pocket with a small radar on it and exclaimed, “But I do have the homing beacon! It is no more than a few miles do west of us!” Chloe snatched the device from Goku’s hand (to his surprise) and she looked at it, as well as Michael and Minos and she said, “Well that’s a start. We better get moving and get our ship back before those pirates decide to leave or we will be stranded here with the Nova Corps. breathing down our necks.” She walked fast ahead of them and Michael and the others tried to catch up to her and once they did they walked down the side streets and through another marketplace till the dot beeped rapidly and showed it was right in front of them, only when they looked ahead Chloe sighed, “Not again.” And right in front of them is another bar but with swinging doors and is in a western style. Michael said, “Remember, we’re here to get our ship back. Not start a bar fight or get drunk.” Minos and Goku nodded in agreement as Chloe looked up at him as if he’s crazy and said, “You mean to yourself.” Michael looked at her innocently as she looked away, sighed and rolled her eyes before they entered.
