Camera cuts to two shadowy figures whispering in the dark. Well, not so much shadowy as "woolly". Vivaldi glances their way, mutters "tastes like chicken, always chicken" at them while scratching behind his ear. The two small figures nod, seem to confer silently for a moment while Harv methodically inspects his right toes, then, apparently, roll into a ball and dart into a pipe.

(We are still at the pumping station, right? There would be pipes around?)

Actually, in Old Town, but there would be drainage pipes around, so we're good.

Harv massaged his sore shoulder. "He wasn't that tough!"

"Phew! Phew! Yes he was! Phew! Why do I always get the 'Dog bites him on the ass' bit. Phew! Ack!"

"Well, you're a dog, and you're closer to the geography, so to speak. And if you kneed someone in the groin, it wouldn't carry the impact."

"Phew! I need to go drink some toilet water!"

Harv turned to the back room, intent on getting Vera out of danger. He stopped short as Myatake walked out, holding tight to Vera and holding a squid to her head. The squid had an expression on its face that roughly read, "Hi! Sorry to be in this situation. The original script called for a gun, but someone in casting, whom we will not name, but the initals are Nekokami, sent me over instead. I'm leaving it to the writer to figure out how to get out of this one."*

"Mr Wallbanger. I am impressed that you defeated Fujimora. He is one of my best operatives. He was raised by squirrels, you know. Now, however, you will do as I say or it will be the ink for your girlfriend."

"Well, let's see, according to her, she is not my girlfriend. And if you wanted the dog back, all you had to do was offer enough money."

"Hey!"

"Vivaldi-san will be mine again, soon enough. But what I really need is your airplane."

"The Goose? Can you even fly it?"

"And a pilot, roughly thirty five years old, ruggedly handsome, and apparently, a very dirty fighter."

Harv stood and tried to figure it out.

Myatake sighed. "And apparently not too bright."

"OH! You mean Harv! I was sort of stuck on that ruggedly handsome bit. But dogs have different ideas of handsome. Now, you roll him in some three day old garbage and he'd be a very handsome sight, er smell."





*Squid are very emotive creatures, one just needs to be able to read them.

Note to pshrynk: Hugo and Lefty have rolled themselves over to the Goose. They are in the cargo area, having stowed themselves in a what they think is a backpack. The parachute that was in the way has been removed, of course, but the silk is now highly statically charged due to Hugo doing the nasty with it, repeatedly, while the rest of the cast catches up with them.

Ok, just thought you should know.

So, I'm picturing this massive quantity of silk fabric, staticly charged, unfurled, and filling the body of the aircraft. Meanwhile, in a corner of same aircraft, is a backpack filled with Lefty and Hugo. Have I got this more or less right? Gosh, all that fabric could be a safety hazard.....

I think that Hugo and Lefty have got into the parachute pack, mistaking it for a backpack. This could have bad consquences later ...

Yeah -- that's what I said. And they evicted the former occupant, the parachute. So it has unfurled and filled the REST of the aircraft with soft silk fabric. Good either for sleeping in, or suffocating in. Whichever way the storyline goes.

"What was that?" said Harv.

"What? No tricks, now!" said Myatake.

"I thought I heard some snickering and a soft susserration. And i don't even know what susserration means."

"I heard nothing."

"Okay. So what do you want with the Goose?"

"I need something... delivered."

Vera was getting tired of all the blabbing. And the squid was getting a bit too friendly. She was definitely going to need a bath after all this. That is, if there was an after all this. Her heart trilled in fear.

"Don't do it, Harv!" she said, "I'm not worth it!"

"Baby, you're worth the world to me!" he answered.

"Oh, a dame is worth the world, but Man's Best Friend is only worth, probably, fifty bucks? Sheesh!"

"Shh!" said all three conscious humans, in unison.

Don't look at me, I'm just staging characters. Not even I know what happens to Hugo and Lefty next. I suspect we'll find out as the plot (and maybe Hugo) unravels.
