Rachel laughed at that, nodding her head some. "Yes it is normally the other way around, but it's not so bad this way, right?" She smiled more as he kissed the side of her mouth, turning her head a little more to catch his mouth with hers and give him a firm kiss, not looking like she was going to pull back any time soon.

Errick didn't liquefy this time around, getting used to the affection. He kept himself from purring too much as well, hard to do for purring was a bad habit of his when he went out on dates. I could get used to this, but if she starts bringing home flowers then... I'll start asking for chocolates.

((I think I got his background down now, though unlike Errick I'm more eager to get back to the original story. xD))

She purred softly though, kissing him for a long time and just that and nothing more. Finally she pulled back, giving a few soft, almost teasing kisses before she was fully back and smiling up at him. "I should be going," she murmured softly, sounding rather upset about it.

((If you like, dear :P))

Errick frowned at this, his tail sinking between his legs like a helpless mutt. "Blast... Well I can serve you one last drink at the bar before you go tomorrow, if you don't mind dropping by to see me one last time."

Benedict was busying himself in another part of town, he wasn't so happy about the people he was coupled with... especially when getting a nice right hook to the jaw from one of his men. Benedict's arms were held and spred apart by two thugs, the third one tendorized his gut with two solid hits. Benedict just chuckled, knowing this scene all too well back at bars of black market ports.

"You shouldn't be asking so many questions old man, could get you into more trouble."

Benedict coughed and laughed some. "I've been in more trouble aboard ships, I can handle your little massage. Speaking of which, is that what it is because I can hardly feel your hits."

The man delivered a harder punch to the same place he's been hitting, throwing most of his weight in it.

Benedict groaned and grumbled curses to himself. "Still trying sport? Looks like you're new to this so I'll give you a hint. You're supposed to punch! Maybe you two should switch places, see if you can hold my arm as he shows how it's done?"

The man considers this, waving his hand toward himself to tell his partner to swap places. He lets go and the moment he does, Benedict elbows him into the nose swiftly and his arm seemed to bounce off his face and throws his fist to the man holding his other arm. Both of them take a step back but the first one collapses to the ground.

Benedict is punched once more to the jaw line by the third guy, knocking him off of his feet. His head begins to swirl and it's hard to focus on what's going on, he just notices that he's put into a choke hold and one of his arms is pinned behind his back. Benedict takes a step back into the man then delivers a hard kick to his shin. The man yelps and releases his grip, taking a few steps back to gain some distance for this fighter.

By this time the other two had gathered their senses and attempt to incampacitate Benedict, one trying to deliver a upper cut. Benedict dodged, grabbed his back with one arm, punched him into the gut and pulled him into it all in one fowl swoop. The man feel to the ground holding onto his abdomen. The last 'hero' ran off at the sight of this, trying to save his own hide.

The third man was still rubbing his leg, his ears lowered as he looked up at the man. "I'm-I'm just doing my job, nothing personal! I got nothing against you! Please! I'm sorry!"

Benedict pulled him up by the collar and shoved im into the wall, hoping to get a more intimitating effect. "I want answers! I don't care about revenge, just tell me where his next destination is!"

"Atara!"

"Where?!" Benedict growled, pushing at the young man's throat.

"A-A-Atara! Atara Port! Going to get a new shipment of high grade fabric for the black market! If-if you don't mind me asking, what-what is so important about what he's carrying?"

"You shouldn't be asking so many questions kid, but I'll answer yours seeing you answered mine. I only care about one thing he's carrying and one thing only, it's likely not what he's going to sell any time soon. Now I'd advise that you change your profession or atleast learn how to do it." Benedict gave him one more shove before walking out the narow end of the ally to draw the least attetion to himself. He rubbed the blood off of his lips and spat out the rest, he was sore as hell but wanted to look composed so none of the men would take advantage of his weakness. I'm getting too old for the toughguy-wanna-be crap, taken too many years off of me.

Rachel smiled and nodded at that, giving him one last little kiss on his pouting lips before she disentangled herself from him. "I shall come by before we live, hopefully I can tell you then how long I'll be gone for before I can come back and see you again." She stood, leaned over and kissed his forehead. "Goodnight Errick," she purred, smiling at him before turning to head to the door.

"Goodnight Rachel." Errick winked and watched her walk out, his tail swaying side to side as he began to think about their relationship. So much for 'no long distance relationships.' It's nothing like a cheesy romance that are in fairy tales, just a postponed date... for maybe a week or two. I can deal with that.

Rachel and Franklin where at the port the next morning to meet with Benedict for the start of their adventure. Rachel was in something less fancy than she'd worn the night before. Just a simple dress and blouse with a looser corset on underneath it. Still in that somber grey. As was Franklin who looked just the same as before with a bag over his shoulder and a suitcase in his other hand and hat on his head.

Rachel had been by to see Errick briefly, she'd not had a date for when they were coming back, bur she'd promised to see him before they left and that was what she'd done.

Benedict was nowhere to be seen but something seemed to hint as his eminent arrival. A tire feminine voice came over the rudimentary loud speakers to give some news. "This is the flying conditions for Port Fidelity, flying conditions are poor with a storm moving in but that's not going to be much of an issue. The docking area is to be remained closed until further notice due to the arrest warrant of a Captain... Captain... Benedict? No news as to the reasons for the warrant but if you have contact with him, be sure to stop him and gain the attention of local Fidelity police or any officer of the Fidelity military. That is all."

A man in a police uniform came up to them, giving off a heavy sigh after stopping.The sun was beaming in his direction so his hat was tilted down some to cover his eyes. He sounded old and like a heavy smoker in one point of his life, his uniform was in the same poor shape as he was. It was wrinkled and partially sun bleached by the looks of the darker shades on the seems and under the armpits. "Sorry but I'm going to have to escort you two out. I'm guessing you two were planning on boarding a ship today? Tsk."

He sounded impatient and irritated as well, but mainly sounded overly confident. "Nevermind. I'm short on hands and I've been told ahead of time that I needed to tie down all the ships bound to leave and make sure the rest are secure. Seeing I'm short on hands and behind schedule, I need to keep you with me and in sight at all times until I find someone to take you off my hands and escort you back home. Now you can held me some by rounding up whomever maybe wondering around the port or you could just be a burden to me. The choice is yours though if you choose the later, your trip with me isn't going to be 'first class' is that understood?"

((PLOT TWIST! Just roll with it and don't worry, your flight will be leaving soon. :wink: ))

Rachel looked a little confused as she looked up to her twin, awaiting some kind of explanation from him. "I don't know anything about this," he said throwing up a hand in defense of his sister's stare. "He said he was the hero. Didn't the bartender tell you the same thing? I haven't a clue what's going on so don't expect me to answer that like I know."

She huffed and rolled her eyes some, taking a firm hold of her things before starting away just as they were confronted by the officer. She was about to just walk past him when he insisted on escorting them. There was no need for that. Really, none at all. And she was going to tell him so. "I do believe that we can escort ourselves back to our rooms. We've done nothing at all wrong and we will go home without a fuss. There is no need to treat us like children because we are not."

Franklin sighed and stepped forward, putting a hand down on her shoulder to keep her from getting up in the man's face about it even more. She wasn't normally one for violence, but that didn't mean she wouldn't take out her anger on this man by giving his leg a nice rap with her parasol, or taking his cane from him to do that.

"There he is." The officer pointed out to a man standing next to a hanger, motioning him to come with. The officer kept walking to the direction of some hanger bay, the young man quickly running up beside the twins and also following.

On his waist was a strange looking gun with a bulbous part above the grip and smoke coming out of a small hole behind it. He was covered in leather typically used around boilers which gave the impression that he was an engineer. He had a set of goggles on his forehead over his leather cap and was nervously fiddling with an eyepiece. "This was not according to plan... Excuse me! How is it going to work out?" He raised his voice towards the officer, the badges on his chest shinning a small ray of light on a hanger door next to him as he was checking the numbers.

The officer seemed in his own world, just grumbling away and giving the occasional look back at the group following him. "After all these years as working as an officer at Fidelity, I've never been degraded to such a level. Imagine! Me? Ha! I've been needing to retire and this just adds more reason to do so." He tilted his hat at passing officers, some slowed and wanted to ask about the people following him but didn't want to be late at their posts nor question a higher ranking official.

His voice sounded less gruff and more young then before, anger still was in his voice though along with impatience. "I've served these people now this? No respect anymore seeing things have calmed down. Ah. Here she is." It was a wonder why he didn't bother asking those men to take them off his hands like he said he would, giving no motion to get their attention. He walked right to a small transport ship and started fiddling with the rope.

"Damn imbeciles don't know how to tie a rope anymore either, would have taken off on it's own with the proper gust of wind. Help me with that one will you?" The young 'engineer' nodded and went to the rope he tilted his head to, starting to untie it and tossed it aside.

"Made quick work on that one. What are you two waiting for? Get to work on the last two." He untied the knot and kicked it off to the side. He took off his hat and tucked it under his arm, polishing the metal symbol on the front. "Didn't think it would fit me after two years but uniforms here haven't changed that much fortunately." He grinned and his smokey voice completely gone, his grin plastered on his face. Benedict, the old salt, was in his old uniform.

Rachel was pushed along after him by Franklin. Which caused her to switch from yelling at the other man to yelling at her brother instead. "Well it's just crazy to think that I need to be escorted home. I have you after all, it's not like I'm some trampy women on the side of the street offering to let men have a show or whatever. If I'm not sailing out today I'll just go back to our hotel and not cause a problem, there is no reason for me to be shown how to get back when I'm just as capable of doing it myself..." She sounded very angry and annoyed.

But Franklin was just quiet, letting his sister rage on as he pushed her slightly. He'd figured it out where Rachel hadn't, and he knew that she would continue to rage once she did figure it out, it just wouldn't be out loud anymore. The girl trailed off after a moment, noticing where they were going and finally getting who was in front of them when he spoke to them. "Oooh..." she said with a fair deal of a blush over her cheeks.

"Come on Rachel," Franklin chuckled, pulling his sister along with him to help him with the last of the mooring ropes. He had the arm strength but not the balance anymore, he would need her to help keep him upright the whole time.

Benedict meanwhile went outside the hanger door to see if anyone was coming, spotting a small group of officers headed in their direction. One looked familure and of about the same rank as Benedict, the other two were normal police officers. He needed to buy a bit more time or atleast get them walking the other direction.

He cleared his throat and placed his hat on, sounding like the old man he was impersonating. "Ah, just the kind of men I was looking for. I need you to help me with something over in hanger three."

"Captain, you used that same voice immitating our drill sargent. You couldn't fool me though. I ask that you come with us." The high ranking officer said, now within ten yards and pulling out a set of handcuffs. The engineer peaked his head around the corner, his ears fidgetting to every abrupt sound weather close or in the distance.

Benedict took a step back from surprise, remembering his old friend back in the old days. "Stephen, you know I don't trust you with cuffs."

He slowed down and chuckled, twirling them in his hand. "You'd like that wouldn't you? No, this is for real. Whatever issues there are I'm sure they'll be resolved."

Benedict took another step back, especially when one of the officers raised his gun.

Stephen cursed and tried pulling it down. "Disobeying my orders? He's unarmed for pete's sake!" The officer shoved him out of the way and cocked the gun back, Benedict now picking up on his own fraud.

"Fuck! He's a fake!" Benedict moved out of the way, bumping into his curious on looker. Stephen once again grabbed onto the gun but with more force, somehow wedging his finger under the hammer. They started to fight over the pistol and the other officer went in to aid Stephen, delivering a punch across his jaw. Two shots rang out, Stephen going to the ground leaving the other two to fend for themselves. Benedict pulled out his revolver and ended the conflict with deadly aim to the fraud. He shot once more to make sure he was dead, looking very angry before turning back to his old friend.

Stephen sat up and gripped onto his leg, saying something about neary being nuetered.

Benedict looked at it and saw there were two holes, an entry and an exit. He knew the other bullet strayed off elsewhere. "Typical, you get shot in the leg and you're worried about what he missed. Besides, you're more worried about guys than gals."

"Maybe but I'd still like to keep that ability to have kids. Could you feel up the other leg, I think I got hit there." Stephen teased.

"You would like that wouldn't you?" Benedict played along. He took off his jacket and his belt, using it to slow the blood flow. "Don't get too excited."

"What? You stripping down for me? Why wouldn't I?" Stephen teased some more, hissing from the pain when it was tightened.

The other officer was just listening in, looking dumbfounded while his tail twitched unhappily. '"Are you two-? Want me to leave you two alone?"

"He tried and as good as he did, I just wasn't interested." Benedict reassured, drying the little bit of blood off that came out and onto his hands. "And yes, you should leave and go for help. i'll keep im preoccupied."

Stephen smirk grew, he was tempted to do a little purr at that idea.

((*facepalm* Not all of Benedict's past is the manly tough kind. [I like this better xD]))

Rachel had left Franklin's side when she heard the scuffle starting. She had one of her guns out when she heard the shot go off and came to stand next to the group of officers and Benedict, one gun out and chest lifting rapidly from the effort of hurrying so quickly in her corsets and skirts. She looked confused at what was going on, even more so after hearing the end of the conversation between Benedict and the other man on the ground. "Could we all maybe keep people preoccupied with clothes on?" Rachel asked as she caught her breath, but she didn't lower her weapon any, forgetting that she was holding it really.

Franklin came up behind her and pushed the hand holding the gun down, sighing and rolling his eyes at his sister. "Everything alright, Captain?" he asked, looking down to Benedict on the ground tightening his belt around the other man's leg.

"I'm fine. My friend here is just going to be unable to walk on this leg for a while. I suppose it's a good thing with his inability to handcuff me but this wont last very long. We best be leaving." Benedict sighed, deciding to do something out of character and petting the top of his friend's head.

"You'll have to leave me here, wont you?" Stephen whimpered, his tail curling up against himself.

"I could take you 'hostage' if you want to come with." Benedict didn't look serious but Stephen was giving it some thought. "No. No-no."

"It'll give me time to understand your side of the story." He kept thinking, scratching his chin. "How's the conditions on the ship?"

"Cramped, not enough places to sleep with you on board, and likely life threatening." Benedict was making it sound worse then it really was, obviously regretting of speaking out that idea and attempting to get it out of his friend's head.

"I'll share with your room then, if it's really an issue I could sleep in the same bed to save room." he was sirking widely now, his tail swaying light side to side as he played with that thought.

"Not happening." Benedict said.

"You need a reason to get out of port without getting shot at and seeing they've already mounted the guns and keeping a look out for aircraft, you really have no choice."

"..." Benedict bit his lip and his tail fluffed up around the base. He was pissed, more at himself then at his friend. "I hate it when you do that... ALRIGHT! But you're not getting first class treatment because of that leg of yours. You're a crew member and a captive."

"I like it rough." Stephen finally let out a purr, he had a light blush on his face and a grin taking up most of it. "Carry me?" His face turned into a cuter one, holding out his arms for help. His purr was softer as well as he had that helpless look on him.

Benedict grumbled a couple of curses and also blushed, his tail all the way fluffed up. "Let's bring him aboard! Radio in that we have a hostage and we'll kill him if they try to follow us or if the open fire." He waved his hand toward his craft.

"I love the way he sweet talks me into coming along." Stephen said in a joking manor, smiling devilishly.

The twins both stood blinking horribly confused about what had just gone on right in front of them. So they were taking a willing hostage? They were kidnapping a man who was wanting to be kidnapped? But they gave up trying to figure out what the hell was really going on. Rachel turned on her heel at last to get things together and everyone boarded on the air ship. She didn't want to deal with whatever the emotional stuff that was going on behind what they were doing.

"I've got an extra cane he can borrow," Franklin said, looking over the injured man's leg with a bit of a pout. The problem wasn't sharing it with him because he didn't want to, but because he didn't know if it was going to be right length for him to deal with. But they'd have time to worry about that because he wouldn't be walking on it for a few days at least if not more.
