Down on Hera, in one of the most ragged parts of a tattered town, dwelt a girl who looked much more at home there than she had at first. It wasn't that her views or personality or mannerisms had changed, for she was still timid as a mouse and too afraid to say Boo to anyone. No, it was that her outer appearance had changed. From being reasonably clean, with clean clothes that, while they may not have fit her perfectly, still did the job, and clean locks of brunette waves sometimes tied in a braid or single ponytail, to how she appeared now. Dirt seemed embedded in her skin, while greasy strands of unkempt hair were tied back from her face so as not to get in the way. Her clothes were as grimy as her skin, and caked with dust besides. But her hands were clean- fine boned, slender fingers that knew their work and knew it well. And her eyes were the same- tentative, searching light hazel eyes now touched with sadness, as if a part of her had been ripped clean from her soul.

She had a woven basket on her head now, filled with linen wares for Lucina, the tailor's wife. She hurried, occasionally tripping over shoes that had almost more holes than fabric and a tendency to unlace, besides. Ducking into buildings and religiously avoiding certain paths and certain buildings, she made a maze of the city, turning a ten minute walk into a thirty minute near-jog. But it was all okay, as long as she stayed safe.

A commotion to her left, and she looked, a quick glance that way, and then behind her as well. A man, running off with a wallet, and the wounded lying near the middle of the alleyway. A moment's indecision, and she darted in, laying down the basket as she knelt by the wounded man.

He groaned, he gasped for breath, and she had to pry his fingers away from the knife wound in his side. He asked her to fetch a doctor, but she made no reply, avoiding his gaze with painful shyness. The linens in the basket became bandages and she deftly tore them into strips and bound tightly the man's wound.

"Go to Sagely Hospital, in Green District, not far away. Tell them you have a perforation of the abdominal cavity in the left lower quadrant with possible puncture of the mesentery."

Shocked mentally as well as physically, the man merely gaped at her, and she realized she had to risk it. She helped him up and staggered with him to Green District, to the very steps of Sagely Hospital, slapping the emergency console. "Tell them! Left lower quadrant, possible mesentery puncture!" she reminded him, and whirled away before the staff could see her. Any public place was dangerous for her. She had no idea what kinds of friends her father had, but she knew they were numerous and powerful. It was best to just lay low, well off the radar.

The linen basket was gone when she returned, and she had to go back empty-handed, only to be thrown out by a very angry Lucina. So it was that Ameri was sitting crouched in an alley with her knees pulled up to her chest, her mind drifting back to a safer, happier time on a ship with a door painted in green and blue dragonflies. She'd never quite gotten to finish it- the door had just said her name and had three dragonfly outlines, one of them only half-finished. She wondered idly what had become of the ship and if her painting still survived on the door.

Maverick had heard the call from the engine room. "Good work, Kynthia! We'll see if Lu can get us down in one piece, then." Another yell on the PA. "Sam. Make sure we're loaded down!"

"Lu, let's get ready to go into the atmo." He started to buckle himself into the co-pilot's seat. "If I'm crashing, I'm going to at least look like I was safe in trying to."

Strapping herself into the pilot seat, Lucy looked over at Maverick and nodded, doing final system check. "Everythings ready, let's land this thing." She started setting the thrusters upward as they made their way into the atmosphere. There was a slight jolt to the side and Lu groaned.

"Sorry guys!" Is all she said as she managed to stabalize them and get them through the atmosphere. It was a bumpy ride, but it seemed they wouldn't hit any other jolts.

He looked over at Lu, "Little shaking. Nothing to worry about, dear. Atmo runs aren't known for being less than shaky." He saw the alarms go off... "Gorram it."

He pulled the PA. "Kynthia, we need some flowthrough, dear. We're getting some burnback readings! And I think you don't want to know what happens when it builds up."

Again, he looked over at Lu. "Just be sure to land her nicely. We've got to hope that we did enough on those struts. Kynthia couldn't get them totally repaired." He nodded to himself...

"All of this for a lousy paper run..."

Sam headed for the bridge when she heard the alarms. If Lu was going to crash them and kill them, she wanted a chance to kill Lu first. "Lu! Don't tell me you're crashing this gorram ship already!"She hollered as she jogged into the bridge. "15% is good, but 15% of dead is not."

When the first alarm sounded Kynthia took a moment to identify which one it was. Once that was done, she immediately unclipped her straps and swung out of her bucket seat.

At a flat out run, she pelted towards the flow control. Something must have been stuck. She grabbed a large wrench on the way from the pile of strategically placed tools.

Maverick pulled the PA. "Kynthia, we need some flowthrough, dear. We're getting some burnback readings! And I think you don't want to know what happens when it builds up."

Kynthia rolled her eyes at the speaker. She checked the position of the clutch. Almost shut. That wasn’t good.

Placing her feet in what would have been a perfect baseball pose, she hefted the wrench and gave the clutch a resounding wallop with it. No change. She hit it again. The alarms grew more strident.

“C’mon you gorram piece of space junk. Don’t be making me hurt you now.”

She shifted her feet slightly and swung full out at the round disk that was jammed closed.

The clutch sprang open to the correct angle.

She toggled the PA. “Should be moving right smoothly now Cap’n. Just a small adjustment needed.”

She noted that she needed to file a little bit of rust away from the clutch, cursed the last person in charge of the engine again and returned to her seat.

As they continued to descent, Kynthia worried at her straps. There was too much that could go wrong. The engine just didn't sound quite right just yet. "Nothin' that a bit o' time won't fix Old Girl."

They had to land in one piece. She had to go and get Ameri as soon as they got dirtside. She could just imagine what her friends face would look like when she realized that it was The Monarch after all.

She toggled the PA. “Should be moving right smoothly now Cap’n. Just a small adjustment needed.”

He nodded to his pilot, and looked back at Sam. "Alright, we're calmed down now, Sam. So, take a seat, strap up, and shut up. We're getting on the ground. It just depends on how our dear Monarch is going to let us land."

He looked forward as the atmo burn cleared over. "I haven't been here in 9 years... Didn't think I'd even look forward to coming here. I still don't."

"Lu, the landing struts might be a bit dicey, but I think you can land her smoothly. Our client wanted to meet us on the Hill." He looked back at Sam. "When we land, all of us are meeting in the lounge... It's time to tell you folks why we're on this paper run. To explain what this paper we're delivering is."

Sam didn't budge from her leaning position at the door. "Lounge. Shiny. You've been here before, Maverick? Battle of Serenity Valley? What side did you unit were you in?" Had to be a browncoat, no purplebelly ever spoke bad of the Alliance.

As Maverick took care of the alarms, Lucy kept the ship steady. She could hear things falling but knew there was nothing she could do about it. She had always hated atmospheres, especially trying to fly through them.

As the alarms stopped and the ship calmed, she listened closely to Maverick. "Nothing I haven't dealt with before. I've landed a ship where the landing struts were nearly gone without...to much damage..."

Looking for the landing spot once the everything cleared, she saw it and began the desent, which was almost a little to smooth for her likings.

As she prepared the landing, Maverick heard the alarms stop. "Alright, I think Kynthia got our flowthrough going." He looked over to Lu. "Okay, I'm deploying the struts, so cross your fingers."

Looking back at Sam, he realized he needed to answer her question. "Yes, I was at the Valley, Sam. All you'd need to know is that I was a xiong ci sha shou, at the time. It didn't matter what side I was on. I wasn't any better than the rest of them..."

He helped Lu guide the ship into a pretty successful landing. Although, there was a pretty scary give on the landing... "Everything's shiny. We'll work on those struts while we we're down here. Can't be much that a simple weld here and there can't help."

He got on the PA for posterity. "All crew meet in the lounge." Of course, he unstrapped his belts and walked towards the middle of the ship.

TAG - Everyone on the ship, start heading to the lounge.

"What do you mean it doesn't matter what side you were on? And don't even start with one of those ruttin' speeches about how the war is over and we should all be shiny towards each other." Sam growled, then pushed back against where she was leaning, and headed for the lounge.

Everyone was sitting down in the Kitchen/Lounge area, as Maverick crossed his arms over his black button up shirt, he heard Kynthia ask him about the job. He started nodding, as he put his black cowboy hat back on. "I've held back long enough, I think... I got this job from Lawman back in Haven about a month ago. He just wanted to make sure we were 'Verse-worthy, first."

He threw out a file that he pulled out from a cabinet. "This file contains wave logs back and forth between Hera and the peripherals. Even a few to the outers. As you have heard, the Alliance is losin' its grip on a few of us people. They are gorram correct. Hera's screamin' for freedom. Our governor signed the papers today, as soon as he knew we were dirtside."

He eyed the room. "Kynthia, I wanted ya to get Ameri off of here before the meeting for that reason, dear. This place might get a bit dangerous for a youngin'. Hell, for a person who could handle it." He eyed Sam. "Accordin' to the governor, the Hands of Blue might be in the area. Even a Browncoat girl like you can't handle them. I don't think I could, and I'm a gorram good shot. As such, the governor came up with a way to get us the goods."

He eyed the room. "The governor is going to send his contingent disguised as purplebellies. Which means, Sam, they stay alive. It will be under the auspices of a merchant search. However, one of ya will get the paper needed. Nobody call out, if you get it, either. I want to get that paper and get off the gorram dirt. As soon as they part, they will tell us to be on our merry, and the next planet we headin' to. No shootin'. No fightin'. No misbehavin'. Got it?!!"

"Good, let's get ready. Sam, you got a bit of experience in battlefield fixin'. Kynthia might know of anything wrong with her. Both of ya, go get that little girl well. Lu, we're gonna meet the welcoming party. You know what to do, ladies..."
