OOC - may come twice as the one I posted well over an hour has yet to arrive...
He reached the group ahead of Wolfgang, who was a little bit shocked to see the scientist run past him shouting about swords and helping the others. Rufus skidded to a halt, right in front of Vanessa. He looked at her.She looked at the baby.Rufus looked at the baby."It's not what you think!" He blurted out.
And what.. Vanessa snapped exactly AM I thinking?Well Rufus stuttered Well erm that I might have
Might have what?Been manhandling your baby?
Why would I think that? Vanessa screeched That babys at least a year older than William! And clearly a girl! How would I mistake my own child for one thats NOTHING LIKE HIM?!
Rufus opened his mouth to speak but found his mouth suddenly unable to open due to his cheeks being firmly squeezed by a surprisingly powerful hand. He followed the arm and found himself staring into the angry face of Jay.
mmmpfh! he said. Mmmpfh mumfh muff mmph!Im going to say this once and once only . Jay said flatly, seemingly having lost any concern he had about the crews predicament. Youre going to tell me what my sister means about her own child and you sure as hell better tell me I misheard.
murph mugghf muff!
Oh right.. Jay said and released his grip.
It Its n not MY child! Rufus spluttered Wh why do..do you th..think I fuh..finished with her?Jay said nothing, just slowly turned to face Vanessa, his face fixed in a malicious scowl.
Jay.. Vanessa began I was going to tell you honest as soon as he arrived on the ship!
Jays expression didnt change
I had him when I was stationed on Earth during the Krylon war! I was pregnant so the Space Corp sent me away from the front lines!Jay still hadnt movedRufus really ISNT the father .we never even .you know not that YOU could judge me on THAT anyway I just got drunk.. and, well did something I regret.. she shot a glance at Katrina who was innocently fiddling with her mobile by a nearby tree What? she asked, realising she was suddenly the centre of attention.Leave her out of this Jay snapped This isnt about you having sex, its about throwing your life away! For gods sake Vanessa! Youve died not once but twice! Youd think youd be grateful you HAVE a life, and not toss it out in a drunken fling!!!Look! I know! I mess up, but, seriously, when you meet your nephew you wont be angry any more.
Who IS the father? Jay sighed
urm .Doctor Keto muttered Vanessa.
Doc .tor .Ke to
Jays face fell even more than it already had.
No.. he said sternly
He wheeled around and pointed at Rufus NO!Then he pointed at Wolfgang NO!!!
Then at baby Alota NO!!!
Then ran toward Keto and pointed at him to. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo!!! JAY MONTAGUE CHRYSLER! Came an all-too familiar voice That is no way for a starship captain to behave
sorry Mum said Jay as he turned to face his baby-carrying mother, who evidently had been caught up in the chroniton wave as she was arriving aboard the Blue Dwarf.
Now. Stop this fussing and get on and do your job! These people are depending on you!! Yes mum..sorry mum..
SENIOR CREW FALL IN!! Jay yelled an order to his crew
No need to shout dear!
Youll upset poor William..
<INSERT SMANDYS POST HERE>
The people that walked behind him were wearing similar clothes. They held theirswords ready, and their bows had arrows knocked, ready to fire.
A whistling noise was heard from somewhere in the trees. EVERYBODY! DOWN! Yelled Harris and the crew ducked, the trees were suddenly lined with arrows. One crew member was less lucky and fell to the ground next to Jay, an arrow sticking out of his chest. HOLD YOUR FIRE!!! Jay yelled, raising a hand WERE NOT YOUR ENEMY!! Youre no friend sir! came a voice in reply Therefore you can only BE an enemy!
No, you dont understand! Were just..lost! Were travellers from a foreign land! We lost our bearings, thats all!
..sir..I have a target Harris whispered, he was holding a rifle and looking through the scope I can take him out..And how will that help? If his men dont kill us afterward then well branded as witches and hunted down until there is none of us left.What can they do? There armed with swords and bows, we have guns! We dont know how many there are! Plus, they know the forest better than us! We wouldnt stand a chance! Jay got to his feet and walked toward the trees. My name is Jay Chrysler! OF Chrysler! he corrected All we want is to get home, can you help us?Why should I trust you? came back the voice.Well what can I do to convince you?Well how about you do something for me?
Im listening .
<tag anyone, what does Robin Hood want us to do? (I ran out of time to finish this post as Im at work, but hey, that means someone else gets to decide! I loke the idea of a quest, like Lester suggested mind! Oh..and I guess Jays Mums in charge now too )
