"The Rescue" part 1|
"Open another link," Lukas ordered. "Bounce if through another of their ships."
"We cannot spend too much time with it open," Malachi warned, "or they will be able to locate us."
"Doesn't matter," Lukas commented. "We have to move in, because Majure is going to kill Ronnie. We know which ship he's on now."
"Aye, sir." Malachi opened the channel. Majure's angry face appeared on the screen.
"Missed," Lukas announced to the angry hodok. "Now, you can continue to pick off your own ships, or you can turn over mah son now, and turn this fleet back to your own space."
"No," Majure growled. "What I'm going to do is kill your... son. Right before your eyes."
"And Ah promise you," Lukas told the hodok, his voice cool, but menacing. "Ah will tear through your whole fleet til Ah fand you." He motioned for Malachi to cut the transmission.
Lukas immediately moved to the helm controls and pushed the shuttle forward. "We've gotta get on the ship. Contact Ronnie. Let him know they're coming for him."
"You think they're going to kill him now?"
"Ah certainly do," Lukas confirmed. "We have one thing going in our favor. Majure won't kill Ronnie til he is certain Ah am watching. Whisper doesn't have transporters, so how can we get aboard?"
"There are personal transporter units in compartment 1487," Whisper suddenly reported.
Lukas raised his left eyebrow, looked at Malachi, then back out the view port as he directed the shuttle near Majure's ship. "Whah didn't you tell me that before? Lahke when Ah went on a space walk to the Firegon shuttle."
"You didn't ask," Whisper responded.
"Ah guess you're rahght there," Lukas muttered. He'd forgotten how literal Whisper could be. To say Whisper was an artificial intelligence program would do it injustice. It was more like the shuttle was actually alive. It had always had a telepathic link with April, which Lukas found kind of creepy, but accpeted it as a part of his wife.
The cloaked shuttle deftly slipped between the ships in the Firegon fleet. Not a one of them took up any defensive actions which would have indicated the shuttle had been seen. They soon slipped right up alongside the cruise they had determined to be Majure's.
~~Mal?~~ Came Ronov's thoughts. ~~It feels lahke you are rahght on the ship.~~
~~We are still in Whisper, Ronov,~~ Malachi informed his brother. ~~They are going to come for you. See if you can get away from them. No matter where you are on the ship, I will be able to find you.~~
