Hailey gulped. Wow, he wants me to directly participate in the upcoming breakout... For some reason that felt a bit more severe than the minor complications she'd thrown into Chong's plans up till now. If he figures out what I'm doing, I'm dead...but then again, I'm supposed to be dead anyway. Something steeled inside her as James explained that Aimee would want Hailey to help the good guys. If that's what she wants, that's what she's gonna get. "Let's do this," she affirmed, activating a landing frequency and guiding the ship into the hangar near Cellblock B.

Putting the guard uniform on over her workout spandex, she locked James in handcuffs that were large enough to slip out of and escorted him through the hallways. "We got another prisoner, please open cell B2," she radioed, and the guard in the security office remotely unlocked it. "The lockpick is more metaphorical than I implied, all the doors are controlled from the security room," she muttered under her breath. "Don't even think of trying to escape, prisoner," she said aloud as she pushed James into the Panda King's cell. "These locks are electrically-reinforced; nothing short of a thermal drill will be able to break them. Your only hope would be to head to the cell door generator and flip the switch to deactivate all celldoors in this sector...but there's no way you could ever do that, it's three hallways in that direction and then you take a right. It'd be impossible for to pull that off while locked in here. Chong's vistory is assured."

Leaving James' cell door opened just a crack, so the ultra-expensive unbreakable lock couldn't actually shut, Hailey walked under the blind spot of the security camera. In the adjoining cell, Lucia woke up from the noise and watched as Hailey removed her guard clothes and left them with her security card, folded in a pile on the ground. "What's going on...?" she murmured sleepily as Hailey's footsteps echoed into the recesses of the prison.

Mr. Bigmouth nodded. He reminded himself to place some bets later on. "There are fuel dumps on this planet. In particular, the is the largest one is actually not too far from here. Bombing that particular fuel dump should make Vox pay attention as it's so close to his spaceport for the guests. As for the other arenas, some Valbaaran antimatter charges should cause some havoc."

Captain Carson noticed that an emergency alert came up on the ship's computer. She brought up the crew roster and noticed that Dr. Zanasiu's emergency transponder was active. She swore under her breath; that meant that Chong had gotten to him.

She scowled as she called Stripetail. At the same time, she ordered her first mate to locate where the signal was coming from.

"Stripetail, Captain Carson here. Dr. Zanasiu's emergency transponder has been activated. I--"

"Captain! The signal is coming from one of the Dreadzone space stations. I can get a lock on the location." The first mate began to analyze the data and get the coordinates.

Captain Carson continued. "As I was saying, Dr. Zanasiu has been kidnapped by Chong, but my crew has gotten his position."

The moment Hailey left, Dr. Zanasiu slipped the handcuffs. He made sure to commit her instructions to memory. He turned to the Panda King. "Haven't we met before?" he asked.

 well frankly its not a surprise."  stripetail said with a sigh. ' we figured there would be others grabbed. that makes 7 or so. there will be others Captain. good news is, we know where they are and we have folks on location, working to free them. Utsa has reported they are making progress. ' Stripetail mused " Chong is obviously planning something big.. quite possibly aimed at me. Why else would he grab my friends? Besides the getting even part. Keep watch Captain. and have rescue groups on standby. we will only have 1 shot at rescuing them, and we cant tip our hand.

Panda king started as a new prisoner was pushed into the cell." We might have, briefly. panda  King, at your service. the young girl over there is Lucia> we've been here a few days, now. i'm still waiting for my first fight." As am I " Po said.

Kiara leaped onto the balance beam with stunning grace. "Focus, Kiara..." she told herself as she made her way in a perfectly straight line towards the other end. Most of the others in her pride couldn't do this.

Sima handed Vushu a piece of seafood. "Want some of the food that best describes you.....shrimp?" she teased between stuffing her own face.

.................

Oliver and Ollie were thinking of what to get next. "I could use a new scratching post," Oliver thought, "Always fun to test my claws out when they grow."

Ollie hmmed when he thought about what to get. "How about some RC cars?" he suggested.

"Acknowledged. Captain Carson out." She then cut the transmission and turned to her first mate. "Track his position and plot it. It is very likely that his position will lead us straight to Chong."

She rubbed her forehead. What had happened was a blessing and a curse. It practically spelled out Chong's location but one of her crew was in serious danger. That and if his transponder was found out...well, things would get ugly.

Dr. Zanasiu did a double take. "Wait, you're the Panda King? I've heard you mentioned a few times aboard the ship but I've never seen you. Granted, it is a large ship. Anyways, Your Majesty, I am Dr. James Zanasiu." He dipped his head in respect.

Ms. Swimmer was listening in. "Vox will be screening things very closely. How will we sneak in those Vaalbaran antimatter charges?"

Mr. Bigmouth smiled. "Antimatter is extremely powerful. The amount equal to the tea leaves for a cup of tea can destroy an entire city." He then rubbed his chin. "Now all we have to do is go get some."

"Hi doctor!" The 15-year old vulpine sat up, excited to meet a member of Stripetail's crew other than Aimee. "My name's Lucia Shelton. We haven't met before, Aimee just recently brought me here from earth."

----------------------

Hailey's heart was racing as she approached her quarters. The trip to grab Dr. Zanasiu had taken way, way longer than she'd expected, and Aimee was almost certainly awake by now. I'd been planning for time to freshen up, maybe surprise her with a cooked meal when she comes to. What do I say? How do I look? Taking a deep breath, she reached in her pocket and realized she'd left her keycard with Dr. Zanasiu. Oh, great... Grumbling, she resigned herself to looking like an idiot as she knocked to be let into her own room. "Aimee?" She asked. "Can you unlock the door?" No answer. "Aimee?"

Several uneventful seconds passed before an unexpected panic gripped her heart. What if the curse didn't work? What if she woke up and immediately bolted? What if it's like newborn birds, and she had to see my face to fall in love? "Aimee! Are you in there‽" she cried, rapping on the door urgently. Fuck fuck fuck, I need to contact security! she realized wildly. But then they're gonna wonder where my old keycard went--

"Hailey?" The door creaked open, and Aimee peered into the hallway with a puzzled look. As Hailey's brain scrambled to digest this new update, a smile suddenly broke out on the other vixen's face. "You're back! Come in!"

Hailey allowed herself to be led inside. "Umm, hi Aimee..." she stammered. "Uh, how you feeling? You're looking good."

"Fine, I guess. No lasting effects from when you gassed me unconscious," Aimee shrugged.

"Oh yeah. Uh, sorry about that."

"No need to apologize. Friends always forgive each other." Aimee smiled, then just as quickly rubbed her forehead. "Wait...are we friends?" she asked, blinking.

"Umm...well, what do you think we are?" Hailey asked slowly. She quickly locked the door behind her in case Aimee snapped out of it and tried to escape.

"I don't know..." Aimee regarded herself, her surroundings, and her companion. "We used to be friends, I know that. But..." her confused gaze drilled into Hailey's. “I don’t think we are anymore.”

“We’re not?” Hailey gulped. She could recognize the gears turning behind Aimee’s eyes; she was putting the pieces together.

“No…” Aimee advanced on her. Hailey didn’t have the heart to defend herself, and suddenly she felt herself being firmly pressed against the wall. “I don’t understand what’s going on…” Aimee whispered in a low voice. “But I haven’t been able to get you out of my mind. And when you walked through that door just now...it made me happy. True, single-minded joy for the first time since this whole nightmare started.” Hailey didn’t trust herself to reply. She felt Aimee’s robotic arms wrap around her torso, titanium fingers that could bend steel were digging into her back. “What’s going on, Hailey?” Aimee murmured in her ear. “What did you do?”

“I… I asked Chong to put a love spell on you,” Hailey admitted. “I just...wanted you to like me.” She flushed red.

“Well, I don’t.” Aimee tightened her hug. Hailey squawked in protest as Aimee’s bone-crushing grasp threatened to collapse her lungs. Her former friend squeezed...and squeezed...Hailey’s vision was swimming and growing dark. She tried to plead, but she didn’t have breath.

And then Aimee pressed her face against hers. Her light red lips connected lovingly with Hailey’s, their cheeks breathlessly brushed as Aimee broke the kiss for just a second to add, “...I love you.”
