A couple of days pass and Boomer watches Haurhi’s DVD so he can learn the history he missed. It is brash and explains a lot of stuff, especially Haruhi and her condition, plus about the various suicides across the Imperium. It covers the important stuff as well, filling in a lot of blank details for Boomer. That said, Boomer takes off and heads to Planetoid Wolverines bridge and asks it about Dee’s ghost. It notifies the girls, without telling Boomer. He does a bit of searching about and finds interesting info on how Dee could be a ghost, when Haruhi shows up and admonishes Boomer before taking him home. Once there, Keiko and Yuri give him and the Bandelo a job, ferrying junk material. Basically, it comes off as a job only the Roppommutsu company can handle, but Boomer thinks of it as “weapon transfer”. Still, he figures he will put his all into it, for his daughter, so he goes up to the Bandelo and settles in with his crew. It is a short jump to Tamara, a nearby world where he will pick up the “junk”, and then ferry it to Glisten for “disposal”. All in all, Boomer thinks poorly of the whole mission, but carries thru with it. Along the way, he checks the internet for information on the his son, the Empress and Kelzar. Both are alive and well, per se, and Kelzar is dead. This continues until about 2 days into his return to Glisten when he discovers one of the containers has breaches, and it’s either sacrifice a crew member or dump the cargo. Boomer decides to dump the cargo, much to the crews delight but, when he comes home, Keiko flips out on him. Yuri and Haruhi are equally as mad, but Yuri at least understands why he made the call. Keiko and Haruhi continue to grouse about it, so Boomer grabs a bite to eat and goes to bed………supposedly. Instead he transcends to the Over World and grabs his rings from the Tower and takes them to the bridge, where he asks the Planetoid to scan them and make some copies so he can send them as decoys out into space. Then he goes home and goes to bed.
About a week passes, with the Girls still pissy. Boomer decides to leave them a note and go to Warzburg, searching about for info on Rosza. Once there he acquires a room at the Inn and visits the bar to ask questions. He learns that a female matching his description comes by every evening, and is expected in a bit. Later that evening she shows up, and Boomer meets Rosalita Ardais, what appears to be his….daughter. They talk, and Rosza explains that after Dee “died” she was raised by Yuri, until she “died”. Then, the Cheri “raised” her from the dead and placed her in this body, to repay some debt they felt they owed Boomer from the past. Currently she lives with/is raised by Lord Yamma Ardais, and has a wealth of info especially about Cerebum, an Anagathic knock off that is available on Warzburg.
She invites him to live with her at her house that she “inherited” from Dee. In the midst of all this his communicator buzzes, and it is Kira. She tells him to be careful of things or he will get killed, and warns him he is at a point where the time lines diverge – one with him in it, and one without him in it. Thinking on it, she realizes she needs a way to locate him. He decides to wear his rings again, and she agrees to search for their signal and promises to see him soon. He leaves her and gives his farewell to Rosza and goes home, where he discovers a few days has passed. The Girls are still pissy, and he realizes Keiko failed to mention his note, so they squabble with him. He tells them of Rosza, and her past, and deals with their incredible disbelief. But he mentions they should keep her unbelievable lifestyle a secret. He retrieves his original rings, and discovers they are heavier than normal. Returning, he questions the Girls on who all might have been in the Over World, with no reply, so he reluctantly takes Haruhi to the Over World bridge to make the ring copies. His plan is to set up the copies on various trips across space thru the mail system. Haruhi helps him get boxes from home to mail his decoys, then he goes about setting them up on the decoys, and visiting worlds to mail them, and does so before returning home and retiring.
