SpaceDog keeps tabs on the brains of the QETS.
'Both are doing fine but I still can't understand why you wanted me to put it
[SpaceDog telepath] 'STOP! I had my reasons. Why are you only at 1500%?"
I can maximize at 15000% but then you would not need the QETS, just
me. I stopped at 1505% for a reason.'

He looks at Istanna and then at Sidrat a bit
puzzled. Sidrat giggles and says in a very sexy Mongolian Russian voice she only talks
to him with,
... TIME, The Intelligent Mind with Eyes only for you, or just call me .... whatever

to the gem on her ear and slowly morphs into a human sized cat she
was just before she gave her magic to Shadowfax.

Istanna grabs SpaceDog and pulls him and Sidrat down on the bed beside
her, hugs them both before falling asleep.
[Sidrat telepath] 'Trixie, Istanna will need
some recovery food in a couple of arns. Could you make her some rice
porridge with fruit to settle her stomach?'
[Trixie telepath] 'As you
wish Mum. Shall I will bring some food for the commander as well?'
[Sidrat telepath] 'SpaceDog has fallen asleep
with his arms around the cat on the recovery bed. I will notify you
when they wake up.'
While resting, SpaceDog has a dream about riding on the back of a
gold dragon with his wife Gerd while traveling in Jotunheim when he
was only a
millennium old. Freyr became in lust with Gerd after he snuck into
King Odin's throne room and sat in the kings chair, a chair that lets
you see everything in 8 of the 9 realms. The Vanir and
Frost Giants were enemies but this did not deter Freyr's obsession with
finding love, so he
sent a servant to persuade Gerd to meet with Freyr. But the
servant used a magic staff to force her to comply and Gerd told the
servant she would meet Freyr in 9 days because she already
had everything she ever wanted and wanted to think about it. After finally meeting
with Gerd, Freyr found out his servant used sorcery and threatened
the princess of the Frost Giants to meet with him. Although they got
married, the ride on the dragon Wind Walker, the mother of Istanna,
was when Freyr returned Gerd to her home. Gerd was not in love, she only respected Freyr's
power, thinking he had asked the servant to use force and meet with the princess.
Frost Giants respected power over love...
In the sparring room, LeeZee and
Sasshi take bamboo staffs from the wall and face off. They
bow, stand straight and position their staffs. Both staffs
crack in half with the first blow.
that's not going
to work. Lets try those."
They toss the broken
bamboo staffs to one side and LeeZee points to the
metal staffs next to the hardwood staffs. They bow, stand straight and
position their staffs again.
[Notakill shouts] "HOLD!"
Notakill at the doorway and takes a
bite of some fruit in his hand, looks around the room, finds two
face shields and gives one to each,
[Notakill] "I don't want to see either of your faces damaged with those."
Reluctantly, both put on the face shields. Again they face off with Sasshi
making the first hit with the blunt end as a spear to the
middle of LeeZee's chest. She quickly retaliates with a blow to
Sasshi's ribs and a leg that flips Sasshi
over. Sasshi recovers on her feet runs and jumps over LeeZee,
spins around hitting her in mid back almost sending her to

to the the row of cold steel katanas on the other wall.
we're talking. I suspect this is your weapon of choice Sasshi."
Sasshi nods her head YES, picks up the lightest
blade she can find and checks the edge of the blade. She tests it by
splitting one of her hairs in half.
yes! This is a Zombie Killer. Notakill, can I test this one out on

to try again?"
LeeZee tests the weight of several
swords and picks a slightly shorter sword then the Zombie Killer
katana Sasshi has. When she swings it, its sonic vibrations can be
felt but not heard as it cuts through the air.
you sure you want me to cut you in half with this thing?"
wo wo wo, hold on a moment you two! Shields first, I insist, if it's
Dee stops standing in the doorway. Both Sasshi and LeeZee shake there
heads NO and face off by swinging at each other. Dee slaps on
a field generator, runs between them and grabs both swords with her
hands, stopping them in mid air.
do you want to fight each other or will you both fight me?"
Dee shatters both swords with her hands and yells out,
[~~Dee~~] "Clean up on
aisle 2. Damn, I liked both those blades."
2 of the cyborg dachshunds come out of a
small opening carrying powerful magnets picking up the shattered sword
pieces and snatching both broken swords out of the hands of Sasshi
and LeeZee before they can blink. Both dogs disappear back into the
opening. Sasshi and LeeZee look at each other and start laughing...
[~~Dee~~] "Sword play.
Isn't nice against each other when you're friends. Are you a

did you follow me into the metal red box knowing I was a magic user
elf? What did you think you could get from me?"
Dee looks at the katanas. Getting no reply she hands one of the
blades to Sasshi and picks another for
LeeZee. Then she picks one out for herself.
"These swords give us the same opportunity making us equal. New game
rules! Targets fly out of the walls and come at us at 100 meters per second. Avoid
being hit and send them back to your opponent. Get hit three times
and you lose. Agreed? If I win, you tell me the truth."
says looking at Sasshi. She looks at
[~~Dee~~] "If you win...
you get to sleep with Kitti naked, and if you win,"
at Sasshi again,
[~~Dee~~] "You can have the
Chi I'm about to give to him."
Pointing at Notakill.
[ Sasshi ] "Agreed."
walks up to Notakill and kisses him on the lips, ears and then licks
his forehead before placing a rune there and instantly he perks up.
did you just do?"
[~~Dee~~] "I'm not a
succubus or dream snatcher like your friend, so I used an Elfin
magic energy transfer and not my own personal Chi. That's what I
did. Let the game begin."
All unsheathe their katanas.
Dee tosses the shield generator to one side outside
the match boundary. LeeZee before the game begins,
you know she is Fay?"
All three begin to get the feel of
their particular weapon by swinging it about.

the life out of in her sleep. She's a dream snatcher alright. I didn't feel her

getting impatiently blunt.
knows he's being used. Are we ready or not."
Dee using a command word starts the mêlée,
There is a loud bang from an opening in the wall and 3 rubber
bullets fly in the direction of the 3 sword carrying opponents. Dee
jumps toward one bullet and slices it in half sending pieces
towards Sasshi and LeeZee simultaneously. Sasshi stops the bullet
coming toward her from the wall with her katana but is hit by the half sized
piece of rubber on the leg from Dee. LeeZee avoids being hit from
the attack coming from Dee but gets hit by the bullet coming from
1, 1... BEGIN"
Another loud bang and three more rubber
bullets come from the wall. LeeZee tips a bullet with the end of her
blade and avoids being hit but misses sending it to Sasshi, her
intended target. Sasshi jumps out of the way from the bullet LeeZee
sent her but misses deflecting the bullet from the wall. Dee
catches the bullet from the wall and it imbeds on the tip of her
sword. She flings it at LeeZee and hits her on the right hip.
2, 2... BEGIN"
Another loud bang and Sasshi
slice the bullet in half hitting Dee in the hilt of her
sword making Dee miss the bullet but missing LeeZee completely. Dee having her
sword hit, misses the bullet coming at her and turns her head away
in time not to be hit. LeeZee stops the bullet coming at her with
her blade and hits Sasshi in the back.
Sasshi is out and starts to walk off the
floor looking extremely disappointed and goes through some
blade exercises. LeeZee holds up the arm that she is not
carrying the katana in,
"HOLD! Stay here
Sasshi. Nobody has won the game yet and your still in this. I want
to try something before we continue. With your permission of course!"
She looks at Dee who shrugs
while facing her. She puts her hand on Dee's shoulder and
makes the suggestion that both can move slowly in time in a
way they see everything in slow motion till the end of this
round. Dee has a big grin on her face that changes to a
grimace when she looks as Sasshi.
fair! Whatever it is your planning. It's can't be fair."
Sasshi gets into a defensive posture.
What both Dee and LeeZee see in slow motion is 3 rubber
bullets leave the openings in the wall. They step aside
while 2 hit Sasshi who somehow manages to redirect the 3rd bullet that
[~~Dee~~] "2, 5, 2... BEGIN"
Since the last round just ended, Dee no longer sees in slow motion, however LeeZee
cuts 2 bullets in half and changes the course of the 3rd so it hits
Dee who looks on in disbelief,
5, 2... What just happened?"
LeeZee shrugs and with a
big sheep grin points out to Dee,
did that for one round so I get to sleep naked with a naked Kitti!"
She dances around the sparring room like a woman gone wild.
Watching over SpaceDog and Istanna sleep in the
recovery room, Sidrat opens the door just as Trixie is about to
enter the room. Looking in at the commander, Istanna and Sidrat, she places
a pot of rice porridge, 2 bowls and 2 spoons on the table beside the bed. It smells of
mango, red currents and golden raisins. Both the Star Lord and the dragon
in cat form
catch a whiff and open their eyes.
[SpaceDog] "How long
have we been sleeping?"
Sidrat steps out of the room and looks
a full 20 arns. Trixie,
come with me. Commander, Istanna, control room 2 when you finish
eating. I'm taking us all home but only you two will stay there."
As the door shuts behind Trixie and
Sidrat, SpaceDog and
Istanna look at each other.
wonder what that's all about?"
time for you to grow into the fully mature magical female that you
are.... and I think we are going to the forest city of Kveyka on
Vanaheim so we will not be disturbed for a full cycle."

smells like the world tree? Yes that place is magical if it's still
Istanna bats her
head with her paw trying to remember...
