haha I can remember only jun's a/c pw >.< Jun: Hi everybuddy!! ^.^ --------------------------------------------------------- GC~ Gone switched on the intercom. “Sit down and buckle up back there. We’re landing.”
Gone began his descent from 50,000 ft. at a 30 degree pitch which he slowly decreased until it was a 15 degree pitch. At 1,000ft he levelled off and switched over to the rotor system for landing. Gone grabbed the collective and slowly began the descent. Taking it slow all the while maintaining the necessary pressure on the anti-torque pedals, he disliked rotor landings. He hated them when he had someone like Blaze in the cockpit. Stupid, kamikaze cyclones of anger.
His landing spot was the area in front of the Tomb of the Unknown King, close enough to walk to Deling, not close enough to be seen. The airship landed with a soft thunk, and it felt to him like one of the landing struts cracked. He’d meant to replace it. Gone remained still, keeping the collective in the same position and the pressure on the anti-torque pedals. Once the rotors were stilled he released the collective and switched off the power.
Leaning forward he switched on the intercom. “Don’t worry. I have duct tape.”
Reaching under his seat, he grabbed his roll of duct tape, and then he got out of his seat. Turning around he looked at the door before kicking Blaze into wakefulness.
“Open it.” He barked. Hyne, knew if he had to force it open he’d lose his temper again.
Brushing back her spiked hair with both hands, Stardust eyed the others inside and made a face. They better get going, no time to waste.
"We're here so stop doing nonsense and get off the airship," she hollered at the others, not caring if they heard her or not.
Walking over to the hatch, she pounded the control panel thus opening it. She felt the weak gust of the night air outside. Whatever irrelevant things these teammates of her were doing, fighting, threatening, shouting, was none of her concern anymore. Why would she care about them anyway? Maybe it would be better if she went on ahead and find that store. That way, she wouldn't have to bear with these incompetent lowlifes.
Her boots thump on the dirt as she jumped down. Stardust glanced back. Yes. She would just go on ahead and let these lowlifes do whatever they want.
/But, do you know where it is?/
No. But I will find it my way, she replied boldly then started walking away from the airship. That was when her boots met a protuding rock on the ground, sending herself flat on the dirt.
Reese gave a sideways glance at Stardust from under his hat. "Well I'm definitly above you lot, all rowdy and loud." he said in a low tone. "And I have no idea where this Something Stylish store is, but the sooner we're inside the city, the sooner we'll find it, right? Right." he gave a slight nod and looked back to see some of the others getting out of the ship.
Sym just stood where she was, her eyes still narrowed to slits, with the anger slowly leaving her veins. She had just slapped Blaze, just lashed out at a team mate. Not that she hadn't deserved it, but it had been a stupid move. A stupid move that made her feel a lot better. Sighing, Sym hung her head and let her fists unclench as she took a few calming breaths. It was then that she noticed the attention that her actions and Blaze's had drawn. Dan was beside her, concerned, while Jun and Zacke were harping on the both of them for doing something that should have been done, "I'm fine Dan, just might have a bump in a few days. She just. . ."
Her feet grew tired, and Sym shifted her weight to take some of the pressure off of them before whispering, "But I guess no one noticed that she threw things at me first. Oh well."
As soon as the aircraft landed, Sym turned to Terry and, grabbing her stuff, smiled and asked, "You mind if I walk with you?"
Gone stared after Blaze for a moment before chuckling. “Hyne, I guess I asked for that.”
He looked mournfully at his broken door for a moment before heading out of his airship, grabbing an admantium brace on the way out. Before following the others towards Deling, he headed to the front landing strut. One there he found the crack, braced the admantium against it and used the duct tape to attach it. By the time he was done, he only had a half roll left, oh well it was inexpensive. He looked critically at his jury-rigged repair, it would hold.
Hefting Vayu, he took off to catch up with Blaze. As he passed her, he winked. “Well, love, I needed to replace that door. So kind of you to offer to pay for it.”
Gone slowed down as he pulled up beside Jun, “So, love, what ya think of this so far?”
Colum shrugged apathetically, as he exited the Lady Luck. Time and time again, he wondered why things had turned out so horribly wrong.
You fvcking idiot, Mercutio! What makes you so sure I didn't see the entire thing...Blaze started it, Sym's reaction was entirely justified, Dan thought, as he slung his bag over his shoulder, exiting the airship.
He saw Stardust sprawling on the ground, Jun next to her. Ten gil says Stardust will yell at her for helping her up he thought amusedly, raising his eyebrows and frowning.
Turning to Colum, he spoke in a low voice. "Keep your eyes open and your mouth shut...Take in anything that looks suspicious. But I shouldn't have to remind you..You're an assasin....keep those observation skills handy."
"Well I'm definitely above you lot, all rowdy and loud." Reese said in a low tone, hitting a nerve of Stardust. "And I have no idea where this Something Stylish store is, but the sooner we're inside the city, the sooner we'll find it, right? Right." he said then glanced back at the others behind.
Stardust, brows clashing each other, looked at him. From this close, she could tell that he had blue eyes; a certain fact that would never be revealed to her if she didn't stand next to him and looked closely. She gave up. She couldn't retort afterall. What would she say?
She gazed ahead before Reese could turn and notice that she was looking at him. Then, she heaved an audible sigh. "With a team like this, who wouldn't be upset? Finding that store with them would definitely mean more time to waste."
"With a team like this, who wouldn't be upset? Finding that store with them would definitely mean more time to waste." Stardust said with a sigh.
Reese's face remained impassive. Silence ensued for a brief few seconds as he glanced from the city to Stardust, before speaking again in a calm tone. "With all due respect miss, you do contribute to the dysfuction."
Alaxia almost falling as Xarin pasted. Then turning to watch her other team mates, she turned in disgust they were acting like children. Alaxia eyed her brother hopping he would come sit by her but he didn't seem to be paying attention to anyone. Xarin hated me and its all your flat Lamara.
/Awww I'm so so sorry Alaxia I will never do it again/She snickered
"your a could hard lire Lamara I hate you"
/No, you don't you cant hate me/She giggled softly.
Alaxzander laid back in his chair licensing to everyone fight. This is so entreating. I wished they act like this more often. Alaxzander looked around the room and then noticed Xarin but he wasn't siting with Alaxia. He blowed her off perfect now I don't have to worry about her.
With a rueful smile at Rika, Gaiea walked out of the airship, ignoring the various exchanges between other members of the group, her mind focused on the mission at hand. Her eyes took in the lights of Deling City a few miles ahead of them, before she turned back to Rika.
"My guess is that this store would be near the hotel. Somewhere in the shopping district, ironically enough," Gaiea said to her. "There's no point in checking near the capital because Deling City has a proximity law about businesses near the building. And chances are General Caraway wouldn't be too happy with stores too near his home either."
Kyou spoke up, appearing behind Rika. "The shopping district is one narrow strip. It will be suspicious if all of us enter the same store at the same time. A few of us should go ahead, locate it, and somehow communicate the location to everyone else. That way we could filter in casually. And some of us could go around the backside, just in case this is another trap. Better some of us captured than all of us."
At Gaiea's nod of agreement, Kyou looked at the others, then shook his head. "I don't suppose any of you were paying attention?" he asked loudly. "Or have any ideas of your own?"
