(I know what you mean! I can try taking control over Lune again to alleviate some of your worries. Also, will try playing Alex here for a bit. x_x)

-Melodius and SPARTANs-

As System Fafnir broadened Melodius' Newtype senses, it enhanced them as well; Three mental flashes in Melodius' head alerted him of Stele's attacks, and Melodius moved the Dezpada in turn, spinning quickly and sidestepping the shots with natural zigzagging movements. Melodius grinned approvingly; No wonder his Master had Melodius test System Fafnir in practical situations --- especially now!

However, Melodius' next attack was not against Stele, but against the Twins. With a spin, Melodius and the Dezpada squeezed off three shots at the missiles the Twins had launched, detonating three of them one after another; the remaining three who moved past him were parried by the Planet Defensors of the newly advancing Mercuriuses who, having moved into a lattice-like formation, were pressing in with the advance by conjuring a simultaneous shield wall. At this time, the SPARTANs continued firing at the Jegans with their various beams and guns.

At that time, Melodius' Psyrods launched again and, simultaneously, all three of them lanced towards the Twins from behind with quick hit-and-away stabs as Melodius sought to slow their advance himself --- then he caught sight of Shadow Company, and in particular...

Suddenly, Melodius began looking a lot less happy.

-Shadow Company-

"Brutal kill!" Gyunei cried out when Mellia came at him, and was forced to turn around when the ASS struck down, forcing the Raider Gundam to burst back a few steps to avoid the deadly attack. Even still, the Raider Gundam's right torso was grazed with an ugly, deep gash as the attack passed by it, and at once the unstable-minded member of Shadow Company countered, focusing on Mellia, by swinging its deadly Mjolnir Hammer at the head of Mellia's machine, lancing it out, while firing off two follow-up shots from the Zorn cannon at her to keep up the attacks.

However, what Mellia had done was apparently, in Gyunei's unstable state, drawn his focus away from the Grey Wolf --- entirely. HWG's advance was slowed as the Forbidden sharply turned around and, as the wave of missiles and guns from the Qu Rai flew at him, was forced momentarily into the complete defensive, raising the Defence Binders to deflect the shots that the Trans-Phase Shift Armor would not parry. In a hurry, HWG snapped off two railgun shots as he drew his scythe, causing Alex to barrel-roll as the Qu Rai charged nimbly, raised its Beam Saber while HWG was defensive, and slashed down --- the blade catching on the Forbidden Gundam's own.

"'Ey! Wut's he doin'!?" HWG sneered loudly, pointing at the now-completely distracted Gyunei Guss; Alex used the opportunity to push back, shoving the Forbidden Gundam backwards, and swerve past him, firing off another three shots from his guns and forcing the Forbidden Gundam to hurriedly parry. "He's muckin' 'zis up!"

"Keh...see if I care!" Zero yelled in turn sardonically, and he was the only member of Shadow Company to continue advancing, the Mark II Unit 0 firing at another two Jegans coming at him as he forcefully pushed himself towards the Grey Wolf --- the source of his worries, and his primary target. As he came within range --- alone --- Zero moved the limiter all the way and fired off two intense, large beams at the port side of the Grey Wolf...before haphazardly turning around, strafing left, and firing another two smaller, more precise shots at Alex's approaching Qu Rai, which was blocked completely by its Beam Shield; Alex's countershot impacted against the Mark II Unit 0's own at multiple places as Zero was forced to raise it haphazardly, tearing it to shreds and causing Zero to move upwards hurriedly.

Nonetheless, Zero felt no sense of fear, but only an overwhelming sense of confidence. "I'll do this myself! I'll defeat them all with my own two hands!!!"

- Maarek Stele -

The situation with the Jegans was getting worse as more of them were taking damage or being destroyed by enemy fire. For some reason the Dezpada moved to attack the Twins, thus leaving Marrek to see the dark Gundam Mk. II race toward the Grey Wolf and get past her mobile suit defenses. The two shots fired did significant damage to the port hull and damaged the port catapult this time in the process. Fortunately Zero was in range of the Grey Wolf's secondary guns which opened up on the machine. They would not be likely to stop it, but it would give Stele the opening he needed.

Racing toward the machine himself he sent two fin funnels to add to the AA fire from different directions thus hopefully drawing the pilot's attention in multiple directions, thus making it easier for Maarek to close in and make a vertical swipe with the large beam saber drawn from the right shoulder that normally doubled as a beam cannon when docked with the MS.

The Twins

Maria being further behind decided to handle Melodius' incoms. as they first lanced towards her she cut her engines and flipped the fighter end over end to unleash a quick burst from the beam gatling at the incoming weapons. Next, Maria still flying backwards on momentum, transformed; such maneuvers would leave most humans dizzy and confused. Mellia, however, managed to maintain the same precise control as usual She moved the Gatling into her right hand and continued firing, while, at the same time she drew the left G-Revolver. She continued to fire at the advancing Psyrods.

Mellia evaded the hammer by letting her sword stroke and thrusters carry her below the spiked orb. She had hoped to counter-attack but was forced to evade left as the Red beams flew at her. Mellia had been forced too far away to use the ASS so with the left hand she grabbed one of her grappling Stingers, cable detached, and threw it at the Raider's head.

-Melodius and Shadow Company-

"Gyunei!" Melodius yelled, and his expression changed to a displeased, sardonic look. The Dezpada was no slouch, either, and although being in a bigger machine, Melodius and System Fafnir were seemingly able to match the Twins' quick, co-ordinated movements pound-for-pound. As Maria blazed her Gatling Gun at the Psyrods, Melodius hurriedly retracted two of them, curving and moving them out of the way of the hail of fire, while the third Psyrod changed targets and stabbed at Mellia from behind; At the same time, firing two missiles at Mellia, Melodius turned around, spun, and nimbly shot off a mass of beams at Maria's machine from the Dezpada's Beam Cannon as well. "Gyunei! Respond, damnit!"

The Raider Gundam had managed to duck out of the way of the Grappling Stinger, narrowly missing the head and Zorn cannon, and countered with another burst of the Zorn cannon, the Mjolnir hammer pivoting and swinging around to strike at Mellia from below, before the Raider transformed and hurriedly, with a burst of speed, moved to converge with the Forbidden Gundam.

Gyunei blinked and babbled almost incoherently. "I will...I will destroy...!"

Seemingly, Melodius frowned, Gyunei had decided to ignore even him, as HWG took off at once towards the Grey Wolf to pursue Alex. "Gyunei, what the hell are you, a Frenzied Berserker or something? I don't care if you have to rig your own Will Save to do it, but snap out of this frenzy at once and attack those two Mobile Suits near the Grey Wolf! Leave those two machines to me! That's an order---damnit! HWG, Tuxedo Mask, get over to Zero's position at once!!!"

But it seemed Melodius was too late. Stele had moved past him while Gyunei had distracted not only himself, but Melodius as well, and as System Fafnir worked, Melodius' mind caught sight of that end of the battle; Zero sneered, loudly, as Stele's own shots came in behind him, forcing Zero to roll upwards and turn around, drawing his own Beam Saber, as one of the AA blasts took off a chunk of the Mark II Unit 0's right leg. As Stele then came at him for a Beam Saber slice, Zero lunged forward, aiming to preemptively strike with a stab at Stele's Beam Saber forearm, followed by a horizontal swipe at the MP Nu Gundam's head as the Mark II Unit 0 leapt backwards to draw distance.

Then, Zero caught sight of his target --- the Grey Wolf's bridge. A well-placed shot here could, Zero realized---

"No you don't." Alex suddenly chimed up, and before Zero could react, the Qu Rai was upon --- and above --- the Mark II Unit 0. Suddenly feeling immense pressure and a weight upon his heart, Zero haphazardly fired his vulcans at the Qu Rai, but Alex merely nimbly twisted out of the hail of bullets, spun left, and swing his own Beam Saber in a smooth motion. Narrowing his eyes, Zero instinctively slashed, the two Beam Saber colliding with each other...

Just as the Qu Rai's Beam Cannons, point-blank, fired two large bursts, tearing straight through the Mark II Unit 0's upper body. As the displays went haywire on the Mark II Unit 0 with the direct hit, Zero felt his mind expand...and then melt away, into the void. I can't believe it...I'm falling into nothingness?

Then the Mark II Unit 0 exploded, and was no more.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Relishing briefly in his victory, Alex watched as the Mark II Unit 0, on the verge of finishing off the Grey Wolf, disappeared in multiple explosions...eventually leaving no trace of its existence. Suddenly noticing HWG's Forbidden Gundam coming towards him, firing another burst from his railguns, Alex quickly swerved right, out of the way, and raised his Beam Cannons again to counterattack---

That was when a hail of multi-colored, curving beams suddenly tore through Alex's Qu Rai from the left, and they were so intense that not even the Beam Shield could've saved him. As the beams surrounded and pressed into the Qu Rai, much of the Mobile Suit exploded in small bursts and melted around Alex's cockpit in light; When they passed, all that was left of the Qu Rai was most of its torso, its right arm, and some of its right leg.

Of Alex, there was no sign whether or not he was alive or dead or, as Melodius would put it, he was temporarily Put On A Bus.

Tuxedo Mask, from within the Duraxyll as it made its advance with the rest of the SPARTANs and Evist's unit, laughed almost diabolically at the Duraxyll's Mega Smasher at work, and raised a hand next to his head, finger pointed upwards. "The universal truth...an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. But since only the strong survive, only the strong---"

"We have no time for a dramatic speech right now, TM! Just go and help Heavy Weapons Guy!" Melodius quipped shortly. "Damnit, Gyunei, I am going to have a word with you after this battle. Now go and help HWG, too! We need to take Thrawn out before the rest of his task force gets back, which according to the notions of Plot Contrivance will be happening pretty soon!"

TM rolled his eyes, and seeing Stele's MP Nu Gundam, tightened his grip on the controls; Some of the Duraxyll's side binders detached themselves from the Duraxyll's main body and, moving on their own remotely and mimicking the movements of bits, the Taors Tails spread out as the Duraxyll drew its long Hi-Mega Beam Sword and kept approaching, the Taors Tails fired multicolored beams, one each, so far totalling six Taors Tails, from multiple directions at the Grey Wolf and its Jegans, as HWG now switched his target to Stele's drawn Fin Funnels, firing its railguns and machineguns at them.

The Twins

Melodius was not yet facing the Twin System itself but rather the abilities of a CX-series. If somehow he incurred the wrath of the two at once he would find things rather different.

Maria flipped sideways so she was upside down and fired the G-Revolver once at the Psyrod headed for Mellia. then she boosted "downwards" to evade the blast Melodius sent at her and followed this with a sweep of her Beam Gatling that went from the missiles towards Melodius.

Mellia was busier than her sister. thanks to the 'affections' of Gyunei and Melodius she was on the defensive. She moved left and forward, allowing her to evade the Zom Cannon, then took a quick swing of the ASS at the Hammers' attaching cable as it passed. As Gyunei pulled back Maria transformed and followed him; firing another two Grappling Stingers, this time attached to their cables. Her sister would hold off Melodius' Wired Weapons.

- Maarek Stele -

Maarek was both pleased and quite upset at the same time as while Alex had gotten a major kill, it might have cost him his own ass in the process.

There was no time to ponder it further as he saw Alex's attacker ready for a major strike on the Grey Wolf.

Oh no you don't. Maarek focused his mind and focused on his remotes. Using the two already out and sending three more to join them. They quickly took points that would form a pyramid shape if joined. And joined they were as Stele activated a beam shield with the 5 remotes that took several shots meant for the Grey Wolf. As such the ship took only glancing blows, but the Jegans were not so lucky as yet more were taken out to where the total numbers were now only 3.

Fortunately that didn't matter as several pink colored beams streaked across space toward the forces of the Necronomicon. Those beams belonged to two of the three Salamis Kai warships that were with the anti-pirate task force. Trailing the second salvo of beams were 6 more Jegans coming to the aid of their comrades.

Just in time. Maarek sensed HWG going after his remotes and thus fired shots from the shield beam cannon at him to draw him away from them. Stele then thrust backward to keep himself between the Grey Wolf and the Duraxyll.

-Melodius and Virtually Everyone Else On His Side-

"...Damnit." Melodius cursed, swerving quickly in a blaze, zigzagging down, then upwards, above the Beam Gatling fire as a second Psyrod was destroyed by the G-Revolver, and countered with another volley of Beam Cannon shots at Maria. Things were not looking good. Gyunei's retreat managed to save the Mjolnir from Mellia as the Raider Gundam swerved and barrel-rolled to the right, dodging the Grappling Stingers and letting them pass by him above the Raider Gundam's wings, but HWG and Gyunei were doing rather little to the Grey Wolf...and the rest of the Task Force had doubled back. Soon, everyone else bearing a Federation or neutral signal will swarm to the area, and to Thrawn's aid.

"Do you honestly think that little parlor trick is going to stop me?" TM spat, while Stele's shield beam cannon impacted against the Forbidden Gundam's defence binders, shoving the unit violently back, and fired a large green beam from the Duraxyll's Buster Cannon at the MP Nu Gundam. Much of the initial blow from the volley of Salamis Kai fire was blocked by the fifteen Mercuriuses with some effort, actually pushing the advance back a little, and their attention had forced the SPARTANs to turn around and split their fire on them as well.

Swinging back, the Dezpada moving up with superbly quick reaction time and sniping at Maria with its Beam Saber in flyby while firing a third volley of beams at Mellia, Melodius cursed...and decided that despite still having a massive numerical advantage, this was ultimately not going to happen, and if Melodius stayed, all he'll manage to do is to lose more SPARTANs to Rawn --- six is quite enough. Firing a pink flare into the air, the Dezpada began moving back and into the Mercurius shield wall. "All forces, pull back into the Garden of Thorns and began extraction and retreat procedures. Mr. Evist, Shadow Company, disengage; If you do not comply, you will be left behind.

"Especially you, Gyunei. I'm going to have a nice, long talk with you about what happened here, and you'll be lucky if I decide to just dock a lot of XP from you for this."

TM, HWG and Gyunei groaned in unison at that, but nonetheless they complied and pulled away, the Forbidden in front, the Raider behind blazing their railguns and Zorn Cannon in retreat, and the Duraxyll pulling back its Taors Tails to charge its Mega Smasher again --- the next Mega Smasher would be meant for Stele and that Fin Funnel Barrier of his, TM decided with a derisive scowl. As the rest of the units pulled back into the Shield Wall, the Dezpada's Psyrods launched one last time and whipped out at each of the Twins, followed by a Beam Cannon volley at the Grey Wolf's remaining Jegans, while the Mercuriuses, Vayeates and Serpents fired one more volley at the Federation task force in a whole as the entire assault team fell back in unison.

Despite retreating, the SPARTANs suffered absolutely no confusion as to what they're doing, still facing the Federation task force and deterring pursuit to allow both them and Faste's men to get into the Planet Defensor wall and into safety --- and neither did Melodius Greye. Once the force got into the Garden of Thorns, it would be easy to lose the Task Force, at least; the Necronomicon would already be standing by to extract them from there. And the convoy? Who knows? Hopefully by now, Gon Jem's own raiding force would be finishing up with it and the other part of the Task Force that stayed behind to protect it.

Melodius sighed; If that was the case, then at least he could still claim this one as a victory...or at least claim being ahead of Theo Rawn in this sector.

Faste

It was all the same to Faste as he and his men were nearing the return limit on their machines.

"Very well Mr. Greye; When we return I believe you and I may wish to talk about our future plans."

As instructed he and his men pulled back to the Garden of Thorns.

The Twins

Maria reacted to the first shot by moving right however before she could fire again Melodius charged and fired again. This time she evaded with a sort of U-turn to set herself upright and facing the Dezpada's back from below however her target quickly seemed to change it's mind and pull back after launching some kind of flare.

Mellia received a warning, though unneeded, from her sister as she retracted her Stingers and rolled quickly left to evade Melodius' first shot.

As the enemy began to retreat so did the twins. Their objective was defense, so pursuing the enemies would not be within mission parameters. However there was one final gift as the Dezpada lashed out with a Psyrod at each of them. Maria responded with her G-Revolver for the one chasing her and the last of the energy in the Beam Gatling for the other. Mellia transformed and ASS in her left hand readied a Stinger should the Psyrod meant for her pass her sister.

- Maarek Stele -

Stele was able to avoid the first blast from the Buster Cannon by withdrawing under his own barrier as he was half ready to engage the large unit anyway. He then spotted the flare and the enemy units starting to pull back. Good. We beat them.
He was then broken out of that thought by both the final volley of both the Vayeates and the Mega Smasher blast coming at him. The Fin Funnel barrier held just long enough to Maarek to get out of the way of what made it through. One of the final blasts from a Vayeate sheered off the port side fin that was mounted under the engine cluster, adding to the Grey Wolf's already extensive repair listing.

Now where did Alex get to? Amazingly, Stele soon found him alive in what was left of his mobile suit. Recalling the funnels as he went, Maarek then grabbed the remains and headed back to the ship.

- Theo Rawn -

"Sir, the enemy is finally retreating."

"Good, recover our mobile suits and set course for the repair yard on the moon. We're in no shape to be doing any more battle ourselves for now." Rawn replied.

"Incoming transmission from our other ships"

"Good to see you're still alive, Captain."

"Indeed. What of the convoy? Were you able to stop the pirates?"

"Yes, sir. They weren't expecting any help to come and were unprepared for our attack. The Valiant is staying with them and helping escort the convoy the rest of the way. We'll provide escort for you as you head home."

"I'd appreciate it." Rawn then terminated the transmission and moved back up to the main bridge. Looking out the windows he could see the damage done to his own ship more clearly and shook his head. I was far too careless this time. Whoever you people are, you will not get this kind of opportunity against me again.


The two Salamis Kais took up flanking positions on the Grey Wolf as she got underway for the repair yard for likely a lengthy stay.

Alex Smith

Though alive Smith had been injured and was out cold. As soon as he was cut free of the ruined Qu-Rai he was rushed to the infirmary. Thankfully his woulds were relatively minor, especially considering the damage his machine received. With some basic care and a bit of rest Smith would be on his feet again very soon.

((We're going with two space chapters in one thread again due to the short length of the previous chapter.))

Chapter 11: (Title not yet available. Feel free to make a suggestion.)

- Maarek Stele -

What a mess. thought Stele in response to the damage influcted on the ship. At least Smith survived that attack. We need all the good pilots we can get against those guys, whoever they are.

Maarek then left the hanger to make a report to Rawn.

-Melodius-

The rest of the retreat was extremely orderly after losing the Federation fleet in the Garden of Thorns; with Melodius at the forefront, the SPARTANs who were retreating flew without error towards certain nav buoys planted in the shoal zone earlier, moving from waypoint to waypoint through the Garden of Thorns towards another side of the shoal. After ten minutes of careful navigation, the SPARTANs emerged on the far side of the shoal, away from the ambush site, and regrouped proper; Moments later, the Necronomicon reentered the area, and the extraction began in full effort, the various SPARTANs landing back onto the ship for repairs and resupplies.

Melodius was displeased, however, as his turn came, swerving the Dezpada into the Necronomicon's hangers, planting its feet onto the deck, and opening the cockpit hatch to climb out of the Mobile Suit. His normally-calm expression was imprinted with a scowl; Melodius hurriedly glanced around from his vantage point at the various other Mobile Suits pulling in and, after spotting his 'target', finally allowed himself to kick off and float down onto the hanger. The more he looked, the more angry Melodius became; While normally he had believed that it was never possible for only one man to be blamed for a single defeat, here Melodius was willing to make an exception.

With the amount of damage the battle had inflicted on the Grey Wolf and its MS complements, Rawn would be set back in his efforts in this sector for quite awhile so Melodius could still claim this one as a victory --- but what kind of victory was it to be proud of? Rawn was still alive, as were most of the Grey Wolf's named ace pilots, and the remainder of the Task Force suffered relatively little. What was more, Melodius winced in disdain, this rising Pirate Guild of Gon Jem's had managed to completely, utterly, blunder his end of the attack, allowing a single Salamis Kai to pulverize his forces and guard the convoy; Heck, Melodius wouldn't be surprised if Gon Jem was actually killed there, either.

Amateur, Melodius spat inwardly, but much of his rage was reserved for the other pilot in front of him, whom Melodius was now lunging towards in Zero-G: Gyunei Guss. And I warned him about Thrawn and his task force beforehand, too. My Master wanted me to help alleviate your Federation problems, but if you couldn't handle a single Salamis Kai, Gon Jem, you totally suck. From now on, you will not receive any help from me; You can die in prison being Force Choked by Thrawn himself for all I care.

Then that was all the time Melodius had before he had the second object of his rage to focus on, and before Gyunei Guss could fully touch down onto the flight deck after leaving the Raider Gundam, the full weight and force that was a very ticked off Melodius Greye crashed into him, his hands shoving tightly against Gyunei's shoulders, and slammed him against the hanger wall. "Gyunei Guss, what is your god-forsaken problem!?" Melodius demanded. "We completely had Thrawn where we want him, and the three of you working together should've been able to get the Grey Wolf. But no, you had to be a complete R-tard and get yourself completely distracted for absolutely no fathomable reason and leave Zero and HWG open!"

"I...I...!"

Gyunei's Shani-isms only got Gyunei another violent shove as Melodius glared steely at his eyes. "Listen carefully to me, Gyunei. I do not care what Quess has to say about any of this --- *I* am your CO, not Quess Paraya. If I tell you to eat an AoO for the Greater Lawful Neutral, then in the name of Gary Gygax you eat the ZOINKS AoO for the Greater Lawful Neutral! That's why the SPARTANs are far more reliable than you --- they do what they're told to do, what they're trained to do. No less. From now on, you will keep this in mind. Understood?"

"...I..."

"Am I understood?"

Gyunei meekly nodded, and Melodius let go of him, giving him a softer expression. "I know Quess' death hit you pretty hard, Gyunei. But you're not the only person on this team, and Quess is not the be-all, end-all of the Necronomicon. Quess can't tell you what to do, so don't let her tell you what to do --- she never really appreciated you anyway, but here there're people whose lives depend on what you do. Grow a pair, think for yourself and the people that're still alive here, and you'll be fine. This time all I'll do is reprimand you, but there better not be a next time, alright? Now get going and get some rest."

As Gyunei nodded and floated away, Melodius landed on the flight deck again and turned around to Tuxedo Mask staring at him, hands in his pockets. "Gyunei's been a loner much of his life, Commander," Tuxedo Mask shrugged. "He's eager to prove himself and be appreciated."

"I know that," Melodius nodded, and walked by Tuxedo Mask, glancing at the Dezpada once more as he headed for his quarters. "But here, if we don't fight as a team, we'll never be able to beat Thrawn, Tuxedo Mask. Let's take a gander and think out our next plan. TM, take the Necronomicon away from this sector and set a course for Nighthaven Station, flank speed."

A pause. Melodius stopped as TM blinked at him.

"And at his earliest convenience, bring Mr. Evist to my quarters so we can discuss the matter of his restitution payment."

Faste

Faste and his men landed safely; they had all survived this time all with light to moderate damage.

Soon enough TM Approached with an offer to meet with Melodius Greye, an offer Faste had been waiting for and gladly accepted.

The Twins


The two machines landed on the Grey wolf soon after the Jegans. They disembarked and gave a list of needed consumables.

Alex Smith


Alex awoke to a rather bad headache. It took him a few minutes to figure out exactly where he was. Once he determined he was in the Medical ward his last memories came rushing back to him; his defeat of the Mark II unit 0 and then his own defeat. What little 'joy' he had about the kill was drowned by the fact that he had again been shot down.

"Damnit that's the third time" Smith said to himself bitterly.

- Gon Jem, Zanzibar class ship Garahau -

"WHAT?! Totally driven back?" Gon Jem roared as he grabbed the messenger by the collar and held him in the air.

"Ye- yes, sir. There were too many mobile suits and they were a lot better than our own units."

With a growl Gon Jem threw the man to the floor in disgust. "That's the last time I make a raid without one of the team in charge." Gon Jem said referring to his four most loyal and competent pilots.

"But sir, they complain that they are overworked when we do things like that."

"I DON"T CARE! If this is what happens without one of us then they'll just have to deal with it as otherwise we can't win against the Federation!"

Indeed it was the case in the latest raid that the Jegan teams managed to totally disrupt the coordination of the pirate metal armors and mobile suits to the point where they were unable to fight effectively at all. Things were in fact the exact opposite of what Melodius believed as it was not the failure of Gon Jem himself, but the lack of his presence on the battlefield that caused the failure of the raid that would have otherwise kept the three Salamis Kai ships and their suits busy and unable to come to the aid of Rawn.

"Have what forces survived regroup here and prepare for another raid. We'll show them just how dangerous we can be when we're serious about it." said Gon Jem to the messenger.

"Right away, sir."

-Melodius-

"Ah, Mr. Evist. Please, take a seat." Melodius beckoned from behind his desk in his quarters on the Necronomicon. While TM's quarters were far more fancy and luxurious, Melodius had little use for such indulgences; His own quarters were mostly of the same steel walls and floors, devoid of trappings, that the other SPARTANs shared. Melodius was seated, hands propping his head up.

"First off, I'd like to thank you for your valuable assistance in the previous battle, Mr. Evist." Melodius waved a hand politely and pointed at Faste with the tips of his fingers. "The main reason I called you here, as you're aware, is any repairs your own Mobile Suits might require, and I would like you to name your price for the previous assistance --- in addition, I would also like you to name a price for your continued assistance with us over the next month or so.

"We're heading to Nighthaven Station right now for the Necronomicon's own resupplies and to plot out the ship's next course of action. Nighthaven Station is a neutral spaceport, as you know, one of the more 'wretched hives of scum and villainy' in the Outer Rim and pretty much what replaced Haunsenwolden after the Night of the Fireflies." Melodius continued, staring evenly at Faste. "You'll get your money there and, if you choose not to accept my offer for additional assistance, you and your group can part ways with us at Nighthaven if you so choose."

Faste

Faste took the offered seat and bringing his hands together began.

"Mr. Greye I have no need of money from you, if I wanted money I would have remained as I was and stolen it myself. no you completing your objective will be more than enough compensation, however, I'd be foolish not to accept your offers to cover our repair costs."

"As for future events I think now I can trust you with my full resources. In addition to the men I launched with my two best pilots remained behind; they have modified their machines extensively. I have also managed to make alliances with several groups who share my views, if need be, we can call them to join us."

-Melodius-

That would be due cause for a little suspicion.

"Are you sure, Mr. Evist? I wouldn't want to be taking up your time without suitable payment." Melodius continued, unmoving. "But of course, I'll resupply your men as well as I can for now; I'll finish up whatever else they might need once we get to Nighthaven."

Faste

"Don't worry about it Mr. Greye keeping this area in pirate control is in my best interest and you are currently the only one who can help me do that. as demonstrated by his earlier defeat, Gon Jem does not realize the danger that the Federation poses. They could scatter the pirates with a flick of the wrist if they wanted or worse.

The freedom of being a pirate may soon vanish if one of the federation higher-ups wills it. The Fandom is little better; their leader is short tempered and opportunistic once our usefulness vanishes so would we."

- Theo Rawn -

The Grey Wolf managed to arrive without further incident at the main Federation base on the moon where the Gundam Team had once held off an attack while they were briefly stationed aboard the ship.

Slowly the ship pulled into the berth that would be her home for several weeks, though Rawn would no doubt try and speed things along as much as possible as leaving the forces that attacked them out in space unchecked was a very dangerous thing indeed.

Rawn had gotten word that he would not be receiving a new ship to command while the Grey Wolf was under repair. The pilots under his command would likely be reassigned to other posts if need be.

Alex Smith

Smith was now up and about again; the bandages were also off. Yet, even with his wounds healed the bitterness remained. He was unsure who to hate more The Blue Monster, the little devil or himself. Forcing himself to stop thinking about it, he walked off to see about the new machine he was supposed to receive.
