351-352 Morning awns and everyone enjoys the temporary black water that is called “coffee”. Melina shows up and discuses a strange dream she had that seems much more like a psychic impression of a star ship undergoing various details than anything else. Boomer orders more pots of coffee and breakfast as the whole room wakes and settles in. Then, those that can, change clothes to head out. Boomer gets an idea and has Gabriel talk with Keiko and give the impression on the place he and Rachet ran to/from the other day. She agrees to give it the ole telepathy trick and locate it, then she tries to scan it also, but is surprised to find he is blocked out. Melina tries to break thru the shield, but she is overtaken by surprise and psychically assaulted, causing her arm to be broken and Red Alert has to care for her.
Boomer makes a decision to go back to the Columbus via the Over World, taking Keiko with him. Together they transfer their way to the starport, and Keiko gets to spend some happy time with her wives again, who are overjoyed to see her. Boomer talks with Dee some, and then finds Dara and Elaina and talks with them. He also contacts the Embassy and arranges for a new translator to appear at Zervenaugh by tomorrow. Finally, he goes in the back and calls for Keiko to “get dressed, we gotta go.” After a moment, a very embarrassed Keiko shows up with an apologetic Haruhi and Yuri in tow. They go down to the front desk and catch a ride to the Columbus, where after a brief talk with the ship they fill two large backpacks with 2 Lbs of C4, 6 detonators, some IR goggles, Boomers Sub SMG, his Psi Sword, and lots of ammo, including about 40 rounds of HE rounds, Gas rounds, and Tranq rounds. Boomer asks the ship to fix him up some of the Psi Enhancing drug to take, which the ship tells him it wont be ready till tomorrow. So the duo leave their backpacks, along with Boomers mortar, by the door and go back to the Embassy. Both are overjoyed to spend the evening with their spouses, and spend the time “bumping and grinding the night away”
Come the dawn they fill up on coffee and head out. They retrieve their junk, including the Psi Enhancer, and try to head home via the Over World. They barely manage to do it. Once there, they show off their loot and Boomer makes plans. Around about lunch time a Mr Koloth shows up, an interpreter from the starport, and Boomer invites him in. After lunch, he goes over the police records on their data stick and chats with Melina about it, before he interprets the finding. Seems it is a listing of names and locations, of which three seem to connect to a single place, with an address and a single name – Demos Jafar. He also ID’s the local shopkeeper as Pejoy, a local businessman with strong ties to the aforementioned Shiva. Boomer plans on going and visiting him.
