Two months had passed in relative peace. The Monarch was, for once, actually running on a profit after several small but lucrative puddle jumps. They'd even earned enough to pay off a couple of debts and for the crew to get paid. Kynthia felt as though all was going well.

It helped that Belladonna wasn't interested in her for the time.

They had just taken off from Harvest, and were heading towards Kerry on another short jump. Inside the hold one entire wall was stacked neatly with crates of supplies from one farmer to another. Small jumps like this kept them off the radar and out of the way of the Alliance.

Kynthia preferred it that way by far. So she was not happy when she recieved a wav' from an old.. er.. friend.

"Wotcher Kynthia." said the cheerful young man in his battered hat and old tweed jacket. "I've got work and you're just the right person."

"Ferret." She replied, her voice dripping with distain. "We're fully booked up for the next oh.. several years."

"You mean that little shipment you got in there right at the moment like? Well.. Deliver that, and I've already made arrangements for your shipments to be taken over like."

Kynthia didn't realise she was on her feet and yelling at the screen until she felt the gentle hand of Teagan on her arm.

"You ain't got no right to be taking my work away from us! How dare you!!"

Ferret was no longer looking at her, but at the small woman to her side. A strange look crossed his face. Kynthia glanced at him and then at Teagan.

"what's goin' on?" she demanded, a deep and terrible frown on her face.

"Nothing Kynthia. Nothing is going on." Replied Teagan. "I ain't never seen him before in my life. "

Ferret sat back and put his feet up on his desk, crossing his ankles. He steepled his fingers.

"So, I'll expect you in a week then. Money's good." He clicked off his end of the wav', leaving Kynthia staring at a black screen.

"Teagan, ifn I find out you're behind any of this, we are going to have words. Dong Ma?" Kynthia snarled as she left the bridge and headed towards the lounge. It would be meal time soon, and she could explain to everyone what was happening then.

About two hours later, while everyone onboard was seated around the long table, Kynthia finished explaining why they were leaving the relative safety of the outer planets and going to Dyton, where Ferret would be waiting for them.

Addy had changed a lot in the last two months. He was now able to shoot and carried a lever action carbine across his back as well as the pistol on his left hip when he was off ship. He no longer carried his bastard sword because it was a little bulky and he had won a Masamune Katana in a high stakes game of poker a space station near Beylix and it had replaced the bastard sword for off ship travel. The rifle sat at an angle so that the butt snuggled against his left shoulder and ended at the middle of his back and the Katana snuggled against his right shoulder so that the duo made a "V" along his back. He had like the Katana due to the quicker, lighter and more offensive nature. It was true that the blade length was only 1/2 inch difference but the hilts, and balance were completely different make the Katana more practical. It was also looked a lot less comical. He had actually been laughed at in a fight when he had pulled out his family sword.

He sat at the table looking like a proper gentleman except for his boots, in black pants, a blue button down shirt, black suspenders and assault boots. He sipped coffee from his "Baron" mug. He had not met the rodent brother in question but the character made him nervous. "So we now have to do his the bidding for the time being, because he scooped our other jobs? I don't like it."

Kynthia couldn't help but approve of the changes the last two months had brought in the man sitting in front of her. When he'd arrived on the ship, he was so quiet and reserved that she'd worried about taking him onboard. But now.. now he was part of the family.

"Aye. An' it ain't wise to be upsetting the rodent brothers. Badger has a long reach but also some good contacts. Ferret is tryin' to make his way in the worlds. We had a tangle with him back when Maverick was still alive. Can only hope that it won't hold against us."

She glanced at the others around the table.

"We got to be careful about this one. "

Lu sighed as she looked at those around the table. Listening to Addy and Kynthia talking about the rodent brothers was less than entertaining. She'd had her own run-ins with them when she was off ship, and they weren't the greatest of...colleagues. Tapping her fingers on the table, she grumbled finally and got up to get herself something to drink.

She was out of the clutches of Belladonna, at least somewhat. She wasn't going to be at her every beck and call anymore. The moment that she heard this, Lu had taken the communicator and smashed it to bits, right at Belladonna's feet. Though she was glad the woman had no idea that this had been her former home.

Coming back to the table with what was left of the coffee they had made, the waiting was horrible.

"Careful...we've gotta be careful with everyone. But Badger, he can find things out about you, or find things out that have happened before you even return to him. Refuses to keep up his end if you're spotted and it could lead back to him."

Sipping the coffee, she pushed her hair back away from her face. "How long is he expectin' us to keep waiting?"

Teagan stayed quiet as she took her place at the table. She felt unsettled in a manner that she had not felt before. The man who Kynthia had been talking to was oddly familiar, though she knew that she had never seen him in her life.

"So we're to meet him then?" She asked, picking up a chunk of protein and slicing it into smaller pieces. "That will be enlightening. He seems to be.."

"An irritant in my skin." interrupted Kynthia.

"Yes. That. Are we to meet him then?" repeated Teagan, dropping her knife from nerveless fingers. She knew that tone of voice and she was still terrified of it. She waited a moment, then fumbled for the knife to keep cutting.

Kynthia was so different now. Before, she'd been a religious zealot. Practically. She had talked in verses of the bible and had killed cleanly and efficiently. This woman was loud and brash, and.. not Eden at all. It was still a shock to Teagan.

Sipping the coffee, she pushed her hair back away from her face. "How long is he expectin' us to keep waiting?"

"He didn't rightly say. But if he's decided to be contacting us after we blew him up some, then it won't be soon." Kynthia eyed the offering on the table and sighed slightly. She missed Tarra's cooking, that was the truth.

"So we're to meet him then?" Teagan asked, picking up a chunk of protein and slicing it into smaller pieces. "That will be enlightening. He seems to be.."

"Yes, we're to be meeting up with him. Don't you be getting any ideas about that kid. He's trouble. I mean it. No getting involved with a rodent. " Ky waved her own knife in the general direction of the table. "Besides, I ain't all that sure if he's forgiven us.. yet."

Right at that moment, the proximity alarm sounded from the bridge! Ky spun in her chair.

"Lu. Go." she snapped. "Teagan, infirmary. Get it sorted. Addy, man a gun. Or two. Just in case."

Addy looked at his Captain for a moment. "Can do Captain. I still don't like this." His left hand dropped to the pistol strapped to his leg and pulled it out. He looked at it. He had carefully cleaned both it and the rifle just before the meeting and he had even sharpened both swords that he cared for. He replaced it back in the holster and glanced back at the table as if they had disappeared during the brief moment of careful inspection. "I'll be ready."

Morrigan grinned happily as she maneuvered her ship into position, the firefly ahead of her firmly in her sights. She wanted on that ship and it was getting close to time. She was about to push the thrusters when her proximity alert sounded.

She peered around her, trying to see what was coming. Then groaned aloud. A massive shape blotted out stars and worlds. Only one group had the kind of money needed to make that big of an ugly ship.

The Alliance.

She swore loudly right up until they hailed her. At which point, she became all sweetness and light in tone.

"Yes, this is Courier Raven. I have business ahead. I'm sending my credentials now. Yes.. yes... Thank you." She switched off the comm. "Blithering idiot."

Sasha looked up from her wrench, as the red proximity alert flashed overheard. She sighed as she pulled her hair into a loose ponytail, securing it with strap of leather. She was the relatively new ship mechanic and had been enjoying what appeared to be a quiet, decently paid job, the past few weeks. The crew seemed capable, small, but tight. They showed a code of honor that was missing these days. There wasn't much work, no...paid work, for her kind. A fact she always found quite ironic. So she leaped at the offer when had been presented.
She stood up, contemplating her next move.

"Well do I just sit tight and see if anything blows up?" She thought to herself.

"Why did I just do that? Nothing is going to blow up. Stop jumping to conclusions. You'll only jinx yourself." She shook her head to clear it and waited.

Lu caught the proximity alarm from the bridge and was already out of her seat when Kynthia said go. Proximity alarms were not her favorite thing, but they did tend to be rather common depending on where they were at.

Glancing out the window, she was caught off guard by what she saw.

"Kynthia, you'll want to get up here ASAP!"

Addy's head snapped up at the proximity alarm. He had his things in moments. He flew up the ladder out of his room. He checked the corridor before moving to the bridge. He moved to the side as he entered because he knew the captain would be in just behind him.

Kynthia slammed her mug of coffee onto the table and sprinted for the bridge when she heard Lu yell. She narrowly missed slamming into Addy, who had been smart enough to move to one side.

"What?" she gasped, thinking to herself that she had better get some training in, and soon. Gettin' flabby running a ship wasn't a noble end for one of the Church's best assassins, after all.

Then she saw the shadow.

"Only one kind of ship makes that big of a splash. Ain't they done enough?" she groaned. Just as she did, the comm crackled and a tinny, officious voice emerged from the ship's speakers.

"This is the Alliance ship, IAV Jupiter-Gould. Identify yourself."

Kynthia rolled her eyes at the others before plastering her face with a fake smile. It was, to be fair, rather terrifying. She only really smiled occasionally.

"This is the Freighter Monarch, registered on Haven. I'm Captain Kynthia Talland. How can we help you?"

"Prepare to be boarded." Was the only reply. Then a burst of static cut the communications. Kynthia immediately toggled the ships comm to the internal frequency.

"Listen up, This is your Captain. We have some alliance pals about to board our nice little ship. So.. er.. Hide everything. Now. RIGHT NOW!" She dropped the small handset, absently watching it bounce on the cord that attatched it to the wall.

"Addy, Cargo Hold. Lu, make sure the computers are clear of anything what ain't proper by their standards. We'll grab Sasha on the way past. Let's go. MOVE PEOPLE! "

She didn't bother tagging Teagan. There wasn't anything to be worried about down in the Medical area.

Addy flew through a corridor and almost tripped on chair in the common area. He knew what he had to do. He had to move everything into the dozen hiding places and in about 2 minutes. He deftly moved down to the cargo bay floor and started the process, his process. He had practiced it at least 10 times since collecting their current cargo. It took him 2 minutes and 12.34 seconds to square everything. He glanced around, he was ready. He just hoped that he wouldn't be recognized by someone or he would have a one way ticket to a camp.

Sasha blinked in surprise, "Well crap."
She did a quick glance around the engine room, nothing seemed out of place. Anything that was not up to regulations was securely locked under the main engine. The latch looked secure. "Well alright."
She made her way up to the common area and noticed the semi-panic rush. She shouted out to the closest person, "What can I do?"

Addy turned as he heard the claps engage. "CAPTAIN, COMPANY." The moment afterward, a Loud banging came from the other side of the bulkhead. "JUST A MINUTE."

The officer who strode into the cargo bay of The Monarch was polished right down to the underside of his boots. He practically sniffed as he walked onboard, as if the stench of dealing with lower life forms was beyond his ability to prevent his skin crawling.

"Where is your captain?" he demanded of the nearest person to the hatch. Kynthia nodded at him from her position on the stairs.

"Here. What can we do to help you today?" she replied, keeping her voice calm and even. She walked through the cargo boxes, noting that she owed Addy or someone a drink sometime for getting them stowed properly.

"What is your business in this sector?"

"You are?"

"I am Lieutenant Sharply. And you?"

"Captain Kynthia Talland." Kynthia spotted something else that she recognized. A tiny pin on the collar of his uniform. The insignia of her former church. That did not bode well. Her hand flexed slightly at her side. "You didn't answer my question Sir. What can we be doin' to help you?"

In reply, Sharply began to examine the cargo hold. He motioned for his troops to enter and begin searching the ship. Ky glanced sideways at Addy, hoping for the slight nod that all was stowed away.

TAG - Addy.

"Well, seeing as how we are all listening so nice and all, it would be polite to let us know what you are looking for." she prompted, when Sharply found the door to her old bunk. "Ain't nothing in there except an old blanket and sleeping' supplies from when we was a bit too full one run. Helped some settlers we did."

"Open it."

Ky looked around the rest of the group and shrugged her shoulders slightly. She deftly twisted open the lock on the door. She bent down beside Sharply as he inspected the area within.

"Are you Execution?" he suddenly whispered. Ky's eyes went wide with shock.

"Justice shall be our only path." she replied.

"I've been looking for you. We need your help."

"Take us all onto your ship and into separate rooms. Bring Lucille into mine with me and then we shall speak of this. The rest do not know."

Kynthia straightened up and glared at the man.

"You have got to be joking! We ain't got nothing to hide around here."

Sharply sniffed again. "Take them in." He ordered his men. "All of them."

TAG - Everyone.

Lu wasn’t sure why she’d been grabbed, she hadn’t been near what was happening, and then was pulled off the bridge and, without knowing where she was going, she was thrown into a room with Kynthia. Being forcibly sat down in a chair, she watched as the one who brought her there locked up the door. Glancing over at Kynthia, she had a confused look on her face.

“What in the world just happened? And where is everyone else? I take it I missed something interesting while adjusting settings on the bridge.” She sighed and pushed her hair out of her face, “Are we in trouble again?”
What she didn’t know is that the rest of the crew were put into other locations, and the only reason she and Kynthia were brought here was because they were in charge.

Sharply walked into the room and sat down at the military grey desk. He held a folder in his hands. A neat label was positioned exactly in the middle of the cover. Kynthia barely glanced at it before Sharply placed his hands over the label. But that one glance was enough for her blood to run cold for a moment.

"Chuy Lo." The label said.

"So?" she asked, leaning back in her chair. "What exactly are we here for?"

"Justice and Execution shall follow the sinners all the days of their lives." Sharply said. "Does your... friend.. know?"

Kynthia turned slightly towards Lu, shrugging.

"Truthfully, I ain't too sure of how much she knows. She knows that I am one of the best shots this side of the 'Verse an' that I have a history that involves killin' some of the most hated of men from the war. Beyond that, I don't know."

Addy glanced to his Captain and almost didn't nod but just enough if one was looking for it. His hands were up now and he his pistol was removed. He shook his head just a little so his face was less visible. He looked around as his arm was firmly grabbed by a very armed, very unimportant man.

He was separated from the rest and set in a chair in a room a table and another chair. Addy looked around and accessed the situation, doors probably locked... no escape. He sat with his arms in his lap and just waited, but no one came for a long while then a private walked in. Addy glanced at him then smiled. He was not the reason they had come. He sat and waited. He knew that any question would be a shot in the dark so he would say nothing. He would just wait. The captain would get them out or and he glanced at the man again. The idiot had brought his side arm. If the captain did not get him out, he would take as many as possible before they killed him. But now he would just wait.

The private who was assigned to 'talk' to Addy looked just as bored as possible. He sat down opposite Addy and sighed heavily.

"Busy little ship, The Monarch," he said, shuffling some paperwork. "Looks like it bounces around all over the place. Yet we can't find anything interesting onboard. Just a bunch of normal cargo. Seems a bit strange all things considered, don't you think? Hmmm?"

He simply sat back and smiled at Addy then, waiting for a reply.

Lu glanced at the file that was brought in and raised an eyebrow at the label; Chuy Lo. It had been some time since she’d seen that name or even heard it. So what was it doing on that file?

"Justice and Execution shall follow the sinners all the days of their lives." Sharply said. "Does your... friend.. know?"


Kynthia turned slightly towards Lu, shrugging.


"Truthfully, I ain't too sure of how much she knows. She knows that I am one of the best shots this side of the 'Verse an' that I have a history that involves killin' some of the most hated of men from the war. Beyond that, I don't know."


Listening to the other two, she wasn’t sure if she did want to know what was going on. “If it’s something to do with that name on that there file, then I probably am not knowing too much of whatever you two know. But it’s not like I’ll go blabbing some secret information or something. Besides, if I did, she’d shoot me.” She nodded towards Kynthia, knowing that is was the truth.

Addy looked at the young man sitting across from him. At that moment Addy wondered if they would figure out who he was and what he had done... not to mention the rather large bounty on his head. The confidence drained from his still smiling face. The smile faded too. What could be goin on, where was the captain, the protector. Addy sank alIttle in his chair and shook his head alittle so his long hair returned to its old acustomed spot, half hiding his face. He peered at the private from under his hair, he knew the man had no chance if something bad happened but the guards outside and he could not take on the whole ship. "We are just a small ship, you are the most exciting thing that has happened since I joined the crew." He was not sure why he answered the man. He wasn't sure why they were here in the middle of the black with Alliance. He let his mind wonder to the others and wondered how he would find them if he tried to break for it. Were they even alive? Was he being toyed with? He refocused on the man in front of him. What did he think was going on? Did he know he was sittIng across from a murderer? A fugitive on the run from the people that were now holding him?

Watching Addy squirm was thoroughly enjoyable to Private Veron. He'd never understood why The Order had spent so much time and money tracking down this insignificant little ship when they had resources available that outstripped any old fossil from the War.

"Tell me about your Captain... Maverick isn't it? Or wasn't it? Who's the woman?" he demanded suddenly.

TAG - Addy.

Sharply nodded at Lucille.

"Quite so." He said, then turned to Kynthia. "May I Ma'am?" He asked her, in a tone of voice that was surprisingly meek.

"I can't see as how I can stop you." Kynthia replied, "Ain't my place an' all. I'm a Captain of a freighter. Nothin' else."

"But you were once most important to us Eden. Very important."

Kynthia's face went completely still. She looked at Lu and then back at Sharply.

"Ain't gone by that name in a number of years."

"About ten or so, I'd say."

Kynthia shrugged.

"It's like this. The Order of St Michaels is reactivating one of our best units, or part of it at least. Judgement is busy elsewhere but we need Execution to take up her arms again." Sharply smiled, a short uncomfortable smile with no warmth behind it. "Mrs Rapson, your Captain is.. was.. one of our most highly trained operatives. We need her skills. We're willing to pay highly for the honour of using her again."

TAG - Lu.

Kynthia sighed heavily. " Lu, Chuy Lo and I, we worked together before. I didn't remember because of this stupid scar." She touched the edge of the twisted knot of scar tissue that ran from the edge of her forehead and back across the top of her head. She moved her hair out of the way to show the extent of the injury. "I didn't remember nothin' after Serenity. Not until Maverick an' us all had that run in with the pirate some time back. Took me a while after that to put the pieces together. So, how much you payin' and what's the target."

Sharply nodded.

"You're to go to Leviathan and take care of one Mother Rosemary. She's.. interfering in our plans there. You are not to let the Holy Father of the convent there know that you are present. We will provide shelter from the Sun. In the dossier there is all the information that you need."

TAG - Lu.

Kynthia pulled the file towards her and opened it to look at the contents.

"But you were once most important to us Eden. Very important."

Eden? Lu knew that Kynthia had been part of the war but never actually knew what part of it she was involved it since it was before she was old enough to even be in the war. With hearing her be called a different name, she decided from that point to listen very intently, more so than originally planned.

"Mrs Rapson, your Captain is.. was.. one of our most highly trained operatives. We need her skills. We're willing to pay highly for the honour of using her again."

“An operative?” She hadn’t heard of someone being one of those in quite some time, and to now hear that her friend and captain, Kynthia was...or rather had been...one of them was a surprise. It explained the name change. Glancing at Kynthia then back to Sharply, Lu sighed, “You’re wanting to use her again to carry out something you’ve got no one on your end that you trust enough to use?”

Glancing over at Kynthia again, she listened, “So, how much you payin' and what's the target?”

Her head turned back to Sharply, "You're to go to Leviathan and take care of one Mother Rosemary. She's.. interfering in our plans there. You are not to let the Holy Father of the convent there know that you are present. We will provide shelter from the Sun. In the dossier there is all the information that you need."

She looked at the dossier as Kynthia picked it up, “Sounds like it isn’t best for a whole ship full of people to show up there, it’d cause too much attention.” Scooting her chair over, she looked over the information as well, “This isn’t someone I’d normally see in a kill order, and trying to make sure others don’t know we are there?” Lu sat back and looked at Kynthia, “This doesn’t sound like a job for a ship, but for one or two people.”

It was then that she looked at Sharply again, “If this is only a one or two person operation, why take everyone off the ship and separate us into different rooms?”
