***Later that night***
Arcturus and Josh stopped in the engine room of the ship. Josh
had Sarah, wrapped in a blue sheet, slumped over his shoulder.
As they both caught their breath Arcturus began, "You stupid
fool! Why didn't you shoot the boy when you had the chance?"
Josh looked over at his partner, "If you didn't notice, he
blinded me!" Arcturus threw his hand in the air, "Of course, the
scum has to make an excuse!" Arcturus soon felt the cold steel
of a pistol shoved into his cheek. He narrowed his eyes and
looked at Josh, who looked serious enough to pull the trigger.
Josh growled, "I've had enough of you." Arcturus didn't blink
an eye, "Put the gun down, Joshua." Josh growled, "Why don't you
make me you over-sized Cockroach?" Arcturus laughed, "Alright.."
in a swift motion he grabbed Josh's other arm and flipped Josh
around. After some struggling Arcturus stood, Josh's gun in
hand, standing over the fallen Rocket. Arcturus laughed, "I
think I've made you, Joshua. Let's get going." Arcturus tossed
Josh's gun to the floor. Josh grabbed the gun and picked up
Sarah. Then they were off.
Under the cover of night the two creeped on board the ship.
Eventually Josh turned to Arcturus and said, "Where the hell are
we going?" Arcturus stopped, "Well....um...do you want to go to
Nemesis?" Josh looked at Arcturus with a 'What the hell?' look.
Arcturus nodded, "Yes, Nemesis. It's my...base of operations, so
to speak." Josh shrugged, "We might as well, the police might
not find us-"
"STOP RIGHT THERE!" the both turned around to see a Jenny
standing a few meters away from them, she was flanked by 4 tall
muscular police officers. Arcturus sighed, "Uh oh, the cops." he
said in a depressed tone. The cops opened fire, Josh and
Arcturus took cover behind some of the lawn furniture that was
on the deck of the ship. Josh fired back at them. Arcturus
looked over at Josh, "Well Joshua, any ideas?" Josh grabbed a
Pokeball and tossed it out into the crossfire. After a flash of
light, Wartortle appeared, and began dodging the bullets. Josh
yelled, "Wartortle, Ice beam!" Wartortle fired a blue beam out
of his mouth and froze the guns of the cops. The cops shook the
ice blocks that were now on their hands.
Josh returned Wartortle and ran. Arcturus looked at the
running form of Josh, "Thanks a lot, Joshua!" Arcturus got up
and ran after him. They reached the front of the ship. Josh said
in between breaths, "Well....what..are...we...gonna....do?"
Arcturus looked at him, "Joshua, where is the girl?" Josh moved
his shoulders, "She's right.......well, fuck." Sarah was
gone, "You idiot, what are going to do?" roared Arcturus. Josh
glared at him, "Listen, why don't YOU try carrying her around?
She was starting to make my shoulder ache." Arcturus
growled, "YOU PATHETIC FOOL! HOW COULD YOU JUST LAY DOWN AN
IMPORTANT GIRL LIKE THAT JUST ON THE DECK OF THE DAMNED SHIP?!"
Josh was suprised at the shrillness of Arcturus's voice. His
usually deep, calm, sophisticated voice was replaced by a
shrill, insect like screech. Josh was fascinated by his new
partner, but he didn't know whether to be brave or scared around
the strange alien. However, Arcturus said, "Ahem, sorry. Well,
she can't be far. Go get her."
Josh walked back to where he had put down Sarah. When he got
there he found the cops that were shooting at him before were
now around Sarah. He knew that he had to get her. He got rid of
any small traces of fear he had and ran into the group of
police. He knocked them away and grabbed Sarah. The cops opened
fire, but Josh was already gone.
Josh returned with Sarah. Arcturus had been waiting on the
guard rails of the boat. Josh looked at Arcturus, "Well...where
to?" Arcturus looked out over the sea, "I don't know, Nemesis
would be to far to swim to. I think we could make it to land."
