Brian: Finally! No more school for the summer!
Lil: Brad? Is something wrong?
Brad: No, I just feel like something odd is going to happen, doesn't seem bad though.
Brad: Maybe. How about we go to the central park?
Tara: That sounds good, haven't been there in awhile.
A little time, and one short bus trip later, they were already there, and began looking for a nice empty area to just walk around in.
Brad: Huh? There's lights up?
Tara: Anyway, it seems Follomer was attacked again.
Tara: Terrorists, they attacked a mall, and then blew up one of the ports.
Lil: When will the terrorists learn that all they are doing is making it more difficult for themselves?
Brad: It is more likely that Myon will help them now, though...
They continued walking though the park, however unknown to them, they were being watched.
Mardon and Cormani's starship, in Myon orbit
While there was no sign of their ship in orbit, that didn't mean that they weren't there. Instead, it simply ment that there cloaking system worked well enough to hide the ship from Myonian sensors.
Cormani: >The sensors are indicating that there are a couple of odd lifesigns located in one of the cities along the west coast of the ocean.<
Cormani: >If the ligh signs detectors aren't acting up, these people are apparently human/Muphridian hybrids, yet I don't see how such a combination is possible.<
Mardon: >How many?<
Cormani: >Don't know. Can't get a good enough resolution from orbit, plus they seem to be too close together. I'm going to come in lower.<
The starship, still unseen, began to drop down lower and lower, before entering the upper atmosphere and then settling down to hold position over Galesfe City.
Cormani: >Hmm, seems to be three of them, and a forth that is apparently a normal human.<
Mardon: >Can I check?<
Cormani: >Huh? Oh, if you want, just don't mess with them.<
Mardon seems to stare off into space, but from his perspective, something entirely different was happening. The view of the interior of the starship faded away until it was only just visible to him, while a view of Galesfe City Central Park appeared to replace it, viewed from above. Mardon concentrated slightly, and then he seemed to fly down closer, then floated over to a group of four people just walking along one of the paths. Two of them were taller than the others and had red hair, while the other two had brown hair. All four were wearing school uniforms, though nothing about them seemed to distinguish three from the fourth to explaan the odd sensor readings.
Well, there was the fact that one of them had darker skin than the other three, though it was highly unlikely that that was the reason. Mardon looked at them for a couple more seconds, the four seemingly oblivious to his presence, then he flew back up, the view fading away, only to be replaced with the view inside the starship again.
Cormani: >Anything interesting about them?<
Mardon: >No, they all apear to be human. Two boys, two girls... and the're crossdressing.<
Mardon: >The girls were wearing skirts, and the guys weren't.<
Cormani: >I don't need to know about their dressing habits.<
Cormani: >I'm going down to talk to them.<
Mardon: >Can I come? Please?<
Cormani: >Oh, all right. Just don't make a mess of things.<
Cormani imputted some commands into one of the ship's computers, and the ship began rising bacl out of the atmosphere and into orbit, and then both Mardon and Cormani vanished from the ship altogether as the transporters activated.
Galesfe City Central Park
Tara: So Myon is planning an expedition to the Alpha Centauri system?
Brad: Yes, apparently there are some planets there that seem interesting.
Brian: Why no one has gone there before, I don't know.
Lil: True, if the planets are so interesting, why haven't the Muphridians or the al'Haisq gone after it?
Tara: It is right next to al'Haisq territory, after all. Of course, it is one of the closest star systems to Myon, as well.
Lil: Who said that?
Voice: I did.
They turned to see two figures, similar in appearence to humans, aside from the odd markings on their face. One was wearing a green shirt and some sort of blue pants that looked like a cross between shorts and capris, while the other was wearing a green tank top and a gray skirt.
Cormani: I am Cormani, and this is Mardon.
Mardon: We mean you no harm.
To be continued...
Korot: The ships fly though temporary holes in the shield. Same method is used to fire out though the shield. And like I said before, the beam weapons are aiming over the walls.
Schulmanator: Even though the farms wouldn't fit in with the rest of Schulmania?
destruz: Thanks for the comment!
DCMetro34: Glad you like it!
Archean: True... And I haven't shown the 9 CS-2s parked in the area yet...
mightygoose: I'm glad you like it!
Leech102: Interesting mix there...
Archean2: But you didn't say which was which... except for the Zevinowa... and yes, that is a Zevinowa. (No n on the end)
Schulmanator2: Do you need another yet?
RedScope53: (on character list page) Yes, I did, kind of hard to find zuke and Muphridian pics online.
