Cain had been practically absorbed in the skirmish between Dreyfuss and Pius, applauding with crowd at his victory, though he fought the urge to leap into the air and go into a series of loop-de-loops in celebration.
"This is amazing, isn't it Emma?"
There was no answer. Cain searched all the nearby seats for Emma, but she was nowhere to be found, Angel grabbed Cain's shoulder, pulling him along by the cloth of his shirt.
"Angel what are we doing? Where's Emma?"
Angel pointed towards the guards, now far ahead of them and dragging Emma in tow.
"She's being kid-napped!" He hissed below his breath. "We have to follow them!"

Trips armor was old and battered and actually did very little to help him the steampower only allowed him to move unhindered, so he was basicaly the same size as before the armor. He had had time to modiy it a bit cutting a hole in the back for his teleporter and leaving the left gauntlet off replacing it with his Egauntlet He carried his Sword in his right hand .
He had forsworn the helmet and was wereing his Goggles and bowler.
"Hello Cold one" he shouted at the  other contestint "hows the weather?"
Johinsa didnt reply but he did rase his large sword, his armor glistining white from frost on the surface.
Trip had the advantage of speed whil Johinsa had strength and cold, which could sapp strength quickly. Trip charged  the large man and slashed a leg with his Esword whils dodging the sword of his opponant. The Esword left a glowing melted slash across the the larger set of armor
As Trip spun around to attack again, Johinsa backhanded him across the arena.
"oooooo." went the crowed
Trip ran  again aminig for the other leg at a set of hiderolics but Johinsa's sword counterd the attack, Trip grab the larger sword with his Egauntlet, effectivly sending electrisity shooting threw his opponents armor , "RAAAGHAAA" screamed Johinsa, the crowd was unsure what had happened  but it was clear that Johinsa had been hurt. "ooh little man I dont know what you did but your going to die for it" yelled Johinsa
Trip didnt wast words as the man charged him, he having backed away to allow Johinsa  to recover. The size diffrence was v ery apparent to the crowed now In a David and Goliath like way. as Johinsa's sword cme down Trip jumped back and pushed down on the flat of the blade pulling Johinsa's armored arm down and past trip. Trip Grabbed an exposed cable on the arm and hauled himself up then he ran up the arm and onto the giants shoulders. trip once again slamed the armor with his Egauntlet causing the man inside to rage even more. Johinsa twisted and turned trying to disloge Trip. Trip abliged by doinga flip off the back of the suit and readying himself for the next attack.
Johinsa  charged again, this time to prevent Trip from grabing the armor Johinsa jumped op to do a downward slash. Trip dodged the blow and sliced across the giants back with his sword leving a red dripping line of hot metel that cooled quickly because of the coolents running threw the suit.
Johinsa spun and they locked blades Trips Esword Was slowly melting threw Johinsas "no thats not going to help you" said Johinsa as he sprayed the Esword and the front of Trips armor with colent instantly frezzing them, he than kicked trip across the ground shattering the now brittle metel front of Trips armor. The esword snaped as well when it hit the ground  Trip got up shaken but not hurt, his armor still functioned even though it was a little slower now. He looked across at Johinsa and behind him to were he had leaned his favorit against the wall so its wieght wouldnt hinder him in the fight. Trip Back into the corner as Johinsa begain to charge again. Johinsa, seeing his pray cornered put down a shoulder to smash trip into the walls. Right before He was crushed Trip Vanashed, reapering across the areana by his favorit which he at once unroled from the Canvase he stored it in and started warming it up. Johinsa Smashed into the Wall and went a good way into it. he pulled himself out and looked expecting to see the flattened body and armor of Trip He saw nothing however and realised he had amaged his left shoder in the proccess.
The Crowed like this Fight it seemed from the loud comotion they were making.
A small ding went of in Trips gun and He yelled to Johinsa "Hey! What are you doing over there? im here!" Johinsa turned and gave a grunt of surprise "how did you move so fast? Magic like that old man?"
"Hah! Nope I only trade in Technology thank you, heh you said id die i havent yet , whats wrong? tired?"
"not yet"said Johinsa as he raised his sword in his right hand A his of Steam came form his left and two large blades came out form each side of the arm. effectivly turning the arm into a large duble headed axe.  he charged.

Trip Raised his Favorit and waited.
Johinsa closed to 20 feet,15 10.
 Trip pulled the trigger
A massive blast erupted from his gun It was so bright that the crowed was blinded for a second when they could see again they were shocked to see the chared remains of Johinsa and his armor smashed against the wall opposit trip. A 2 inch deep crater spread from Johinsa at its center to five feet out from him.

A resounding Boo emerged from the crowd as thousands of fans stood up, hissing and booing at the fatality caused by Trip.
The emporer scowled ferociously at the competitor.
"The fight is a draw. Thomas Taylor is hereby disqualified, and is now charged with the crim of murder!" The Emporer gave this announcement with roaring ferocity. He was a benevolent ruler, but had no tolerance for such acts within a hallowed sporting arena.
"These events were meant to test great minds and great engineering, not murder! This is not the time before Christ!" The emporer slammed his fist into the marble of his canopy. His wife placed her hand onto his shoulder, attempting to relax him.
Heavily armored steam-powered guards encircled Trip, swords extended and sheilds at the ready should he attempt another attack.

Nadya had been a bit leery of the end of the dance portion of the competition. She hadn't been quite as enthusiastic as she would have been if she had thought of it herself, about doing the dance that Dreyfuss had "suggested." More like ordered gently, she said to herself. and now it seemed as if it was all going to be constructs battling and people waving swords around; but then Dreyfuss had been escorted out (He certainly does have a talent for getting into trouble, she chuckled to herself, but he always seems to make it out all right), Trip took things a bit too far and was arrested for murder, and Emma was carried off after being shocked unconscious.

 It looked like she had her work cut out for her, then.So, she "followed" the group that carried Emma out, displacing every few hundred feet or so, praying that more people would show up so she could create a diversion and get emma away.Then, as she displaced somewhat further back than usual, she saw that emma's group was joined by teh soldiers escorting Dreyfuss! Dreyfuss saw what was going oin, but did nothing until they came to a cross-tunnel, where they unexpectedly met with garbage cart, and the groups became somewhat tangled, at which point dreyfuss managed to tollchock two of his guards and grab emma, before he was recaptured, and both taken away.

Nadya shook her head. Hooray for the thought, Dreyf, but now you're in the muck, too...

Nadya? Where are you?


'Way far back from you, and displacing every few hunderd feet or so
, she answered, matter-of-factly. Angel and Cain are somewhere behind me.

Nadya, Corazon, please be careful, if you get hurt trying to rescue us --

I won't! Have I eve-- ok, maybe once, but I wasn't precisely "rescuing" you.


At least get with Angel and Cain before you try anything -- um, unless a perfect opportunity comes along, of course.

Okay, she answered, exasperatedly...

"well thats not good" trip said as a guards surrounded him and demanded he lay down his arms.
"Sorry but i have to go...farwell" he tiped his hat and vanished
The confused guard milled about a bit "HE'S GONE!" they shouted up to the emporers box.
Trip appeird in front of the Emperor "Just so you know, he swore to kill me, therefore it was selfdefense. goodbye" he vanashed again

He materialised in an alley and abandoned his trashed armor As a bell started ringing  "oh thats just great, what kind of roman empire is this? fight not to the death? ah well ...I do hate to be hunted though......" he ran off down the alley

"Oh dear God." said Gloria in shock. "He...killed..."

"That's not our main problem." said Esmond. "It's how he killed him. That weapon is a weapon of mass aether displacement. He keeps shooting stuff like that off and he's going to rip the fabric of space to shreds. Not to mention the general havoc he's causing here."

"Do we go after him?" she asked.

"I'd like to monitor here, but there is no other choice." he said. She teleported them to the back and top of the area.

"Police bells I suppose..." mutterd Esmond pointing in one direction. "Come on let's not let the nutcase get himself killed."

Gloria teleported to a roof ahead of the policemen, saw Trip, teleported to him, grabbed him and then teleported again. They ended up in a small room. This was a Guardian saferoom - every Aether Guardian like Gloria had one tucked away between spaces for matters that were better and safer left out of dimensions.

"Mr. Taylor..." started Esmond, looking severe.

"You bastard!" yelled Gloria, slapping him across the face. The surprised Esmond had to hold her back. "There's no teleporting out of here." She said. "You murderer. I don't care how much fancy technology you have, that does not give you any more right to blow things and people  up that anyone else. And using that...Aether Rifle in open space?! Civilians could have been killed, no matter if it had overloaded and you created a black hole. And did you even stop once to think that such a ridiculous and wasteful weapon is like a light in the dark to Aether Demons? You're lucky you only fired it once or I would be tossing you to the real Guardians - they're particularly stiff about maintaining the universe. They'd rather split you into a million pieces and scatter them than risk you ruining everything!"

"What can we do to him, Gloria?" said Esmond softly. "We don't have authority to execute him."

"No...I don't suppose we do", she huffed. She then turned on Trip, blasting him with Aether waves. It knocked him back onto a couch - but his equipment smoked and burst sparks.

"What we are going to do." she said slowly. "Is finish the mission. With no more casualties. Mr. Taylor can remain here until then. At that point I will consider releasing him, if his crew will have him. Father of Time Travel indeed. You think the Universe is just a playground? You may be amusing yourself with all your meddling, but people, somewhere, will get hurt. You're just plain selfish."

Then they were both gone, leaving Trip in the small, but comfortable room, alone.

The doctor slowly recovered from the shock of whatever had just happened. "The times have changed greatly" he thought to himself as he picked himself up and bolted for the exit. He must free the new comers from what was to become. Jumping over the railing and into the contenders passage, He loosed his umbrellas. Sprinting down the hallway, the doctor heard footsteps and voices. He turned as the noises got louder. Coming closer, he turned another corner and ran smuck into a guard. Being a light man, he bounced off of the guard, and the guard was not phased. the ensuing noise echoed through out the cramped hallways.

Once again, there was a distraction; this time, the bell started ringing for the police (apparently), the hallways flooded with guardsmen, and Dreyfuss managed to get the still-semiconscious Emma to walk with him as they simply took one turn and their captors another. He thought he caught a glimpse of some fellow with a couple of umbrellas, causing confusion in on e of the alleys, but then the fellow ran into a guard and just sort of fell backwards.

But it was causing enough of a ruckus that Dreyfuss was able to get Emma a fair distance down the hall ways...but now, they were lost.they turned first one way, then another, but could find neither an exit, nor someone to ask about one. Then, Dreyfuss started hearing noises, as if a musical group were playing. HE strumbled after that sound, Emma beginning to wake up as they hurried along. The music got louder and louder, and it became obvious that it was musicians practicing, since every once in a while, the music would stop, and somebody would make authoritative noises, and then they wiould start up again playing.

Things were going fine, until they burst into into a slightly-large room. Dreyfuss decided to break teh ice, and said, Oh, thank god, you people! Oh, we have been so lost for ove ran hour! this place is like a maze! -- suddenly he noticed that the pople in teh room wore lothing that looked a lot...like...their guards...

Their guards were waiting for them, and had been playing music like a bunch of musicians , simply to attract them to this room, so that they could recapture them...

What is it with you people? can't you just give up and let us go like regular folks?" Dreyfuss asked, exasperated.

From his prone position, the doctor took his heavier umbrella, and jammed it straight under the guards breastplate. Releasing the blade in the end, that guard would be no more trouble. gathering himself, he started running down the hallway that the others had taken, hot on the heels of the guards chasing them. As he approached a room, he heard music clattering to a stop. Quietly stepping up to the door, he peeked inside to see the guards starting to encircle the strangers. Quickly preparing his other umbrella, he jumps in the room and roars deafeningly "DROP TO THE FLOOR!".

Dreyfuss ducked along with the guards, wondering aloud, "what in the--"and saw Emma straighten almost immediately. HE reached into his coat and pulled the Paterson in his left hand and the whitefire pistol with his right, and, and cocked the Paterson to half-cock for the noise effect. The guards turned back around, and Dreyfuss said, THINK about it, boys, I've got two guns, and now I'm against the wall. You might be able to skewer me if you all rush forward, but my friend over there has his gun on you as well. I dunno if its made by the same fellow, but the one I saw like that before mowed down five men with one shot. that leaves three for me and Miss Emma to divide amongst ourselves."

Several of the guards glanced over to see that Emma had drawn her Colt and her heat gun; they didnt know what the ray gun was capable of, but it looked threatening enough. She looked just as resolute as the newcomer and himself, but Dreyfuss knew her pretty well, he liked to think, and she looked as if she'd rather not kill anyone. So, Dreyfuss said, "toss your weapons in the corner, there. DO IT!" T

The guards complied -- all but one, who suddenly whirled around and--got picked up by white fire and dropped onto his back on the floor from about four feet in the air. Momentarily stunned, the fellow dropped his weapon, and Dreyfuss disarmed him of his sword, and tossed it and the fellow's spear into the corner, "Get up," dreyfuyss said, not unkindly, "get over there with your friends."

They then systematically bound each of the guards with their swordbelts, and and gagged them with the handkerchiefs that each one carried, apparently by regulation, in a pocket just under the vambraces that they each wore on each forearm. They then crept out of teh room, followiung the newcomer's lead.

Dreyfuss spoke up after a momemt. "Um. Excuse me, sir, but exactly whom do we have the honor of being rescued by, and for what purpose? And more importantly, do you know how to get out of this warren and outside?"

"The name is Doctor Zachery Hastings, I noticed you outside, by your manners and clothes. But more on that later, we must hurry to get out of here before more guards arrive." He said, while picking up one of the brass instruments played by the guards. "And here is our way out, but it will attract attention, so I can only use it so many times."

Trip sat stunned for a moment on the couch than he got angry.
"That...who do they think they are? It was life and death my life or his, and sorry but I think mine is a bit more important....bet Emma thinks so to...though...I have been neglecting her of late...and then they go and damage my equipment? I….can probably fix it with all the junk in my pockets...at least jury rig it, but still, it’s the principle of the thing...bah stupid magic users always in the way of progress..Thinking that they are so much better than inventors, Patrick’s one of the few exceptions to the rule. *Sigh* I guess i had better see what I can salvage"
He took of the back pack and set it on the floor he then empted his pockets of all the various components and machines that he habitually carried around. His favorite was burned out by the blast of aetheric energy and he doubted he could fix it. "Ah well it’s kind of boring to just burn your enemies away...sure it was a great asset with against the cold ones but I’m not going to see anything like them again."

He looked at the things had available. ten throwing knives, a large broken aetheric displacement gun, two smaller rayguns of exotic design, a small tool set, a dozen aetheric regulators, and a bunch of odds and ends that may or may not be useful,

"*sigh* ......well best get started...it’s not like I have anything else to do."

He sat down on the floor and started to dismantle his teleporter/time-machine.

"Formal greetings will be made later, now, for escape!"

running out into the hall, the doctor got his bearings, and ran away from where he came from.

Coming to a split hallway, he drew a note on the instrument, and waited for its echo.

Hearing choppy echoes on the right, and a clear return on the left, he started to run down the right passage.

Dreyfuss and Emma kept right up with teh good doctor; although Dreyfuss knew what he was doing, it was amazing to him that the younger fellow could ken so easily the right direction to go, based on just the  echoes.he kept the Paterson holstered, and the whitefire pistol out; one of their party had already killed a contestant, he had gleaned from the conversations in the hallways as he and Emma escaped thet first time, and he didnt want to affront the romans too much more than necessary. He could use the whitefire pistol nonlethally and in more ways than th ePaterson, and thushoperfully avoid killing anyone else.

the fellow turned and dashed down another hallway, and they rushed to keep up....

"Let me guess," Emma said, "Another bunch of music-loving guards, right?"

"I've got half a mind to to stuff a white fire rag in that ... what is that thing that guard's playing, a euphonium? Perhaps a calf with indigestion?" Dreyfuss complained, as their ears were assaulted yet again by the anonymous player's attempts to subdue his instrument.

"RUN!" Screamed the doctor! They wouldn't do the same trap twice unless it was a confidence trap.

Running as fast as he could or ever had, The doctor dove down the nearest hallway, and took to a small alcove. Looking back to make sure the others were still behind him, he prepared his umbrella again, but this time with the "sparkers".

The fellow in the room back a few paces, was still playing loudly to attract the guards, and to cover their footsteps.

As soon as the guards turned the corner, he turned, and fired.

Burning shards of flint showered all across the hallway and on the guards.

Finding the trail of shards, the doctor stamped down and jumped back around the corner. The ensuing shower of sparks caught fire to the crowd, blinding them as well.

Grabbing the others by the sleeve, he began to run down what he thought was the little hallway left. The explosion didn't echo, therefore, open air....

As they emerged into the open air, Dreyfuss looked around, careful of any guardsmen, like the ones they were heading right into the middle of--!

HE pulled the two others after him into the bushes beside the path, down what looked like a path used buy maintenance workers to care for the shrubbery and the lawns. when they reached a particularly large boxwood (or what appeared to be a boxwood, at any rate), he pulled them under it, to emerge in to what was almost like a room under the twiggy canopy of the ancient shrub. "Okay, now, lets keep our voices down." he turned to the doctor, and said, "Please, doctor, tell us again who you are, and why you're helping us."At that moment, Nadya happened to displace into the little pocket under the boxwood, Emma near-shrieked when Nadya appeared, and they could hear Angel's and Cain's voices coming down the path...

"So, said Nadya, brightly, "here we all are. Who is this, and should I welcome him or slit his throat?"

Dreyfuss answered, "Well, we were just getting to that," and then they heard Angel's voice out in the path. "I thought they were right here, Cain!"
"HIISSST! said Cleopatra, causing angel to look down at her feet, and Nadya to pat her shoulders and try to figure out where teh snake had gone, when, and how...
in came Angel and Cain, Angel for once not exclaiming loudly about finding cleopatra, but nonetheless giggling and cooing as she petted the albino asp, who of course jujst ate it up like she'd never been petted before.

"Now that almost all of us are here, Dreyfuss said, why don't you start again, sir, and tell us who you are, and why you're helping us?"

Bowing slightly, he said " Doctor Zachery Hastings. I too do not belong here. I was a inter dimensional traveler, like you, but, more of a technological research group. We came here, but the rest of my crew were taken prisoner, whereas I was able to escape using this thing" Brandishing the fire umbrella. " I unfortunately had to watch the rest of my crew get hung off the edge of the palace. I've been stuck here for lord knows how long, until I happened upon you people. I recognized the clothing from somewhere, and your mannerisms did not quite fit. I figured that I should try to talk to you but could not find an appropriate time. And having you dead would help me less. So I stuck around and made sure you survived." Shifting back to face the entire group, " so, where do you hail from? Did I guess correct? Was I in fault for helping? I have many questions for you" Settling himself back, but keeping his hand on the sword umbrella, he waited for a reply.

"It's very good to meet you Doctor." Cain said, extending his hand to shake that of Emma's savior.
"My name is Cain, and This is Angel. We come from london, well, at least I do...in a way. But yes. You were very right in helping us. We have no real need to cause any harm, though I am not so sure about mister Taylor..."
He mentioned the name and coated it in a thick layer of animosity which permiated every syllable.
"Angel hails from a temple in South America, she's a construct made by an ancient race called the Bright ones. So her accent may be a bit hard to decipher."

It was hard to be certain, but it looked to Dreyfuss as if the umbrella that this fellow Hastings kept his hand hovering around was the sort that was more likely to hold a sword than a firearm, mainly because it, too, had a trigger-like stud, but it was in a location that was common to most sword- and dagger-canes. he therefore kept the whitefire pistol in his right hand, pointed up as if it were a slug-throwing weapon, as Cain began to introduce the crew.

since Cain appeared to be waiting , and Miss Emma seemed to be avoiding speaking just yet, Dreyfuss decided to make the next few introductions.

"Er, well. As for some of the rest of us, we have here beside me, Miss Nadya Zarate,  Leiutenant Junior Grade of the Pocket War Zeppelin RTAF Saint Elmo. a very talented and trusted member of the crew. Er--" Dreyfuss was temporarily interrupted by Cleopatra's slithering around his right leg, then up his torso, an thence onto and around his shoulders, slipping under coat, vest, shirt, and mailshirt, to wind herself around and on top of his shoulders.

Dreyfuss almost sighed in relief at having the familiar weight restored.
