Adrianna and the surrounding ships were udner heavy fire, as were most rebel forces in the area. With his cloak up Dailan wasnt a visible target to the gunners but he still had to be careful to avoid enemy fire. Years of single man missions made it seem easy, when you were fleeing or boarding a ship it was only you they were aiming at, but now he could glide between shots with ease. Suddenly Adrianna's craft went close to a shot dipped then exploded. Dailan could hardily think for a moment, surely the girl wasnt that much of a fool, the shot was nowhere near her, did she fly into it? He began a scan and found nothing, patroling along the current course where the ship was. Dailan didnt fail, but this idiot girl had gotten herslef killed on his watch. No more babysitting. He resolved. Just then ahead of them a last bolt flashed down and sparked in the middle of nowhere as if it had hit something, it could have been a piece of debris but something about it caught his eye. "Scan that sector" he ordered the computer. "Scanning" A few moments passed. "Spacial anomoly found" it finally concluded. Dailan looked over the console, the visual image before him seemed like a crack in the blackness of space, but he knew all to well what he was seeing. Clever girl. But why would she cloak so suddenly and fake an explosion? he went over the computer and plotted her course then nodded at the results. Fehzah needed to see this. “Update on Adrianna’s location,” He typed in “What’s the matter? Don’t expect any help, you’re getting none,” Dailan groaned at that, typical of employers, happy to hire but after that they want everything sooner without anything more on their behalf. He was fast losing patience with all the Ellcha “I was of the opinion that you spend your money on people who are skilled enough to decipher dots on the screen .” “Don’t get funny with me, young man. What about Adrianna’s location?” “She’s alive, but her location seems to be one subject to suspicion,” “I told her to follow my craft should she decide to flee, and you know that. Is she fleeing?” “I’ve plotted her location against my map and fit in the possible ways to reach Xenu, and she’s traveling along one of them now.” was Dailan’s response. There was a long pause, after a while he broke the silence by typing; “Orders?” “Kill her.” Finally, something more his style, sure the girl had pulled off faking her death well enough to fool most people but killing was infinately better than babysitting. “I’ll pay you double for killing her.” Dailan wondered how long the idiot's memory was from his hiring earlier that day. He decided angainst arguing as a waste of time and simply typed in his response. “Will do.” He swung his ship around as swept after Adrianna's, adjusting his sensors so he could track the ship by its leaking atmosphere. When he was a good distance behind her and matching gere course he went over to the weapons systems. Powering up the forward gun turret he took aim at the trail of fuel behind her. "Too easy" he said and fired. The shot arced out and hit the slow ooze from the ship, there was a flash as the combusible fuel ignited and exploded, but something went wrong. the leak must have drained most of the tank, instead of blowing th eship it only took out most of the engines at the back half. What was worse was the rest of the fuel leaking into space flared too damaging any ships in the vicinity. Dailan had tried to accound for this when he fired and stayed away but when one of the closer ships got caught in the fuel blaze the wrechage flew out in every direction. A huge chunk of debris crashed into his ship.
