"Yeah. I know how it is, homes."

"Since now, apparently. 'Tis a tale of whirlwind romance, fruity drinks with umbrellas and Elvis. I just wish I could remember more of it."

Whereupon I head back 'home'.

He cracks up. "Fuck man, that shit only's supposed to happen in movies!"

"Again, I apologize. There are times when I let an idea get away with me," I say to Galatea. "Did you manage to reach your father? More importantly, should I be worried about angry men showing up on my doorstep with firearms. Or pitchforks. Either. Both?"

"No, but you can expect two intimidating men in black suits with a suspicious looking black car any time now."

"Fuck man...," he starts to look a bit on edge, "You married a Fed?!"

Tea looks at him. "You honestly think I care about the grow op you have in your basement?"

He goes pale. "Um... well shit. Well ese, I guess I'll be seein' ya for the grill out I best. Gotta go!"

He rushes inside and slams the door.

She chuckles.

She looks displeased. "It seems that my right to conduct these negotiations has been revoked. Though I doubt my superior will reneg on the deal. He may seek to renegotiate it though."

Moments later a black jet appears in the distance.

I frown. NOW I am not happy.

So much so, that I begin to glow a bit.

"You mean to tell me, that you did not enter these negotiations in good faith? That you seek to taunt me with a key to a part of my religion and try to withold it?"

I float up slightly

"I can imagine, Darkseid and all that." I shudder at that, Avatar instinct howling in disgust at that bastard.

"Once I get authorized."

I raise an eyebrow at that, "'authorized' now that IS interesting but I've seen enough movies that prying will lead to NOTHING good, so I'll just sit back and wait."

"Not really..." she trails off. "Listen. When I made that call... I was told something. Be Nevada law we have to co-habitat for 3 months before it can be annulled"

My eyebrows shoot up and my eyes widen at that. "Well now...that is...something..." I'm silent for a moment, then I continue, "Well if my experiences have taught me anything, it's that you've got to roll with what life throws at you. We'll take this one day at a time and who knows maybe at the end of it, we'll like each other enough to stick around." I chuckle as if I made a joke.

"So...is there anything from your rooms that you needed to get?"

"You mean to tell me, that you did not enter these negotiations in good faith? That you seek to taunt me with a key to a part of my religion and try to withold it?"

I float up slightly

Her eyes narrow. "Cut out the light show and get down here. I conducted the negotiations in good faith but I was stripped of my right to conduct those negotiations before the deal was completed."

Moments later (like after the end of that line of conversation) the black jet lands and a tall one eyed black man in a black jumpsuit steps out and looks over the situation. Unlike the woman he screaming 'warrior'.

"Waller."

"Director Fury."

He looks at you. "I apologize for the trouble, Leik, but my subordinate overstepped her bounds. I would like to request your patience and assure you that it will be worth your while."

"My bounds!" she scowls. "My mandate is to provide a proper response to superhuman hostility."

"By recruiting individuals with questionable and unknown backgrounds?" his eyes narrow, "Or engaging in unauthorized genetic research that when discovered will directly and personally antagonize two of the most powerful beings on this planet?"

Galatea pales a bit and turns defensive, "Hey! If you think you can talk to her like that then you have another thing coming..."

Waller looks at her. "Galatea, stand down."

"But ma'am..."

"Stand down, Galatea!"

"Yes, ma'am."

"I fail to see how taking measures to give us the ability to fight Superman on an equal level is going beyond my mandate. Besides I did not initiate the project. It was an independent Development of STAR Labs."

"It was also an unauthorized," he looks at her. "While of Extraterrestrial Origin Kara Zor-El, is still protected by the laws of the United States. And while you did not authorize Dr. Hamilton's blatantly illegal actions you did absolutely nothing to dissuade them."

"I did what I had to do," she states.

"And I believe that you believe that. But you lost sight of the big picture. That's why I'm suspending Project Camdus until you have undergone full review," he glances over to Galatea, "As for her..."

Galatea looks nervious and a bit lost. "W-what about me..."

"You're being reassigned to SHIELD."

She looks a bit like a small child for a moment. "And my father?"

"Will have to explain himself to Super Girl. It is up to her whether he has charges placed against him," he pauses, "But I will suggest that they refrain for the sake of your mental well being."

She looks down. "Thank you, sir."

He pauses for a moment, 'Galatea. Look at me."

She looks up.

"Do not believe for a moment I, or anyone who means a damn will ever look down on you over this. How you came into the world doesn't matter. Its what you do once you're here that matters. I've read your records, official and unofficial, and I am impressed." he hands her a envelope. "These are your new orders."

She takes them and nods.

Then he takes the tag from Waller. "Agent Hill will accompany you back to your base. You are dismissed."

Then he looks to you and motions to the ship he arrived in. "I apologize for the delay. Please, come with me. I believe you'll find I've set up a much more appealing negotiating environment inside..."

With that, I head for the ship.

She is totally not intimidated.

He returns your respectful nod.

I frown a bit at that, but remain silent.

Because Waller was ordering her?

"Very well. You, I can respect. Let us talk"

With that, I head for the ship.

Inside there's a full buffet waiting. All the stuff you like including a full keg of beer.

"I believe that Negotiations should be conducted in a comfortable environment," he takes the tag and tosses it to you. "And to prove my good faith I'm giving you this as a downpayment on whatever we may agree upon. Now. Take what you will and take a seat."

Behind you, Galatea's being offered a robe to cover up with. Her clothes are rags at this point that do little to preserve her modesty.

Somewhat. That really depends on you and your intentions. You've become a person of Interest to my superiors. So, lets go inside and I'll answer some questions if you're authorized to hear it.

That and she was looking to obey, and because Fury is above Waller in the Chain of Command, but Galatea was looking to a junior for orders. This smacks of mental conditioning.

my eyes widen and I reverently slip it inside my armour, next to my heart.

Then I collect a large plate of food and a mug of beer and sit

"Very well, what is it you wish of me?"

On Vegeta that would have gotten you beaten if not outright vaporized.

"Very well, what is it you wish of me?"

He invites you to sit at a table and sits across from you. "What I want is for humanity to stay at the top of the food chain and for this world to remain firmly in human hands. I want you to help insure this, and to make cooperation worth your while I am willing to give you an income and a reasonably large degree of independence. On occasion I may politely ask you to do me a... favor in exchange for payment but as long as you do not become a threat and do not break the laws of this world without due authorization... you will find that the degree of interference in your life will be relatively minor and outweighed by the benefits."

He pauses. "Your continued marriage to Galatea is optional. To both of you, but either way you will be personally given an income of $250,000 a year and provided housing in any location you request," he pauses and smirks, "That will buy you a great many Sabbath albums."

I quickly devour a few mouthfulls and swig the beer.

"The rest, is very very tempting. If you make it a flat Million a year and assist in obtaining for me proper work-out equipment, along with the rest, then I will agree. In return, as a show of Good Will, I will present you two forms of Technology I have not seen on this planet. They may interest you."

Then I reach into my belt and place a Capsule on the table. The Capsule containing the blaster-device I have, but have never used.

"You mention'd a degree of interference. Please explain"

"No offense young lady, but we didn't know if you would react in a hostile manner."

Aside from that, all I have of note is a Scouter, which detects bio-energy levels at a basic level. My data-unit and my trophies. I am prepared to let you study them, but I wish them returned.

"Also agreed, but we also want to study your armor."

I shrug and hold out another Capsule "How about a broken suit and I was wearing when a Tamarian put their fist through it? I like my current armour. It's exactly the same, just this one is broken"


"We don't have access to the technology to build a 'Gravity Gym. As for the money, 500k plus royalties on all of the technology we reverse engineer from your equipment. The Bike is fine."

"All it is, is a secure facility where I can fly and do training in heavier gravity. I'm used to much heavier gravity and can;t get a proper one here. If you can build a space-going vessel, you have gravity manipulation technology. If you have that you can make a room the size of a few basketball courts with a few hundred gravities."


Galatea looks at them and her eyes widen. "Red Sun Lasers."

"No offense young lady, but we didn't know if you would react in a hostile manner."

"No, I... just you're well prepared."

"Which makes me wonder what you had prepared for me" I smirk "It could have been fun"

"In your daily activities you will do your best to prevent it," His eye narrows. "Avoid the loss of life. This is not negotiable..." he pauses, "But do well and I might be convinced to see about say..." he smiles. "Arranging for a musical education and contact with a record label..."

"If you want to be that restrictive, you cover my food bills too" I do not mention that my hair 'Toinged' at the idea of becoming signed to a label.

"Well see what the researchers say."

"I'll see what can be done."

He smirks.

"The entire deal depends on that," he states, "It's all about appearances. Speaking of which... if you damage your armor and we are able to replicate it. You'll receive replacements. How does that sound?"

"And I know what your food bill looks like. No."

"Very well, we have a deal"

I nod and throw a thumbs up to Galatea.

"now, where is a decent place to live? I'm thinking California, so I can enjoy the weather"

"Oh, he will be... but I can't make promises about the Gym."

"Very well, we have a deal"

"I'll draw up the contract."

I nod and throw a thumbs up to Galatea.

She looks a bit embarrassed.

"now, where is a decent place to live? I'm thinking California, so I can enjoy the weather"

"That can be arranged."

OOC hasn't been created yet.

Wrong name, meant Darkseid

"Just my clothes. I have another week of leave. After that I can probably figure out what comes next."

"Enraged parents and possibly bosses come knocking I would assume." Wry grin across my face. Razz

"Parents are adventuring scientists. Oh, they've put on a veneer of civility but ... certain things just happen once you've seen, done and been around as much _strange_ as they have. Same with grandfather. Grandmother tried to take over the world once. My paternal grandfather actually more or less did, though his means were far less objectionable. Maternal grandfather and my great uncle still have folk songs and children's stories being written about them"

Another shrug. "It's fair to say rolling with the punches is in my blood, and if it wasn't originally it ended up getting put there."

She growls slightly. "So, any questions?"

"I was actually hoping you could tell me more about yourself. So far, I see a woman of sharp and cutting wit, stunningly attractive, and impressively bearing the weight of responsibility and expectations on her shoulders. But other than half remembered snippets from what must have been a truly epic binge and night of partying, I have no idea who this Galatea I've managed to marry is as a person. It's the little things about us that make us who we are, after all."

I look at the expression on her face, then burst out laughing. "Ok, ok" I raise my hands "Before you beat me within an inch of my life, tell me, do you still feel nervous?"


"So why would the ballencer of nature be working at a Quik-e-mart?"

Shrug

"Pays my bills. Turns out, being the fella that keeps the spiritual world from getting into a street fight with the people currently inhabiting the world doesn't clothe, feed or house you. By the by, I am the balancer of the spiritual world and the physical world. Nature makes a big spiritual component of that, yes, but not all of it. There are spirits not related to nature that just float around and do their own thing. And then there are the spirits who would want nothing but rip appart the people living here.

It isn't just the physical world that needs balance."

"By the way, what are the plans now?"

Hey Psyckosama, how is my bending?

"Pretty much."

Almost unheard of among Saiyans. If a male can't defeat a female, she's not opening her legs. Simple that.

while true, there's a double standard here as well :p

While a female certainly won't give it to a lesser male, this only encourages them to get stronger because to them nothing is hotter then a woman who can kick their ass.

Nothing in the immediate area.

Hmm.

I take off the communicator and turn it off. I begin to meditate a bit since I know it will focus my center, and use it to levitate myself a few feet above the ground. Practice starts now. Sayian's might be naturals, but it takes practice to be great.
