Guess we are waiting on the Captain's reaction. Is she still game, or are we going to need to 'negotiate' :)

'Then let's move our behinds, lest nuclear spanking be upon them."
Blue hopped into the tank.

"Still wouldn't put it past them. They've done something like it before.."  Jerome trailed off.


"We should move. Now.  Of all this Jens sounds the best to me. At least buy some time while I investigate other channels.  Captain, can we avail ourselves a bit longer? I'm afraid we need your assistance further."

Meanwhile, he set his supply depot back at Cairo to active defense. A fancy name for a storage locker, but now the few bots contained within were on alert. And armed.

"Tac-nuking our current location would be unwise - with the assembled sisterhood, this would tear a hole right through the thin fabric upon which reality resides, and, like a boat punctured, cause it to sink beneath the chaos and tumultuous brodem upon which it resides."
Without warning, Blue whipped out the handgun previously calmly residing at the hip, and shot the curiously listening eLVee in the face.
"Should have done so earlier. Can't tell whether she has an uplink or something. Might just tattle, down the road. Now she can't and shan't."
Without pausing, Blue put the gun away, and laid out plans to Jerome:
"With keys as these, many doors will open, yet the hospitality beyond them varies, and determines upon which we should knock.
There is a warrior maiden by the name of Malezzia in Naples, Europe's southern gate, who would offer us aid in employing the ladies for their intended purpose, and would know targets aplenty. A feisty one she is, with a deep font of anger, ever indignant at the misconducts of our corporate overlords. Ah, the fireworks she can imagine I would love to see. Plus, I hear her passion extends to carnal pursuits as well, which may be an upside should you be so inclined."
Blue nudged Jerome: "This is where you're supposed to say 'Oh yes' and 'Speak no further' and head with me to Italy."
Then, a shrug.
"I can tell you of other ideas I have. First, if I had enough whipped cream, pudding, ice cream, and fruit, I could make you into a great sundae, that stern face of yours peering forth from between pineapple slices, silently judging anyone who's about to indulge in those delicious calories. Other than that, I know a man in Mogadishu, Arthur Clarke, who's in the discreet shipping business, and in the ship-acquiring business. A smuggler and pirate, fiercely independent. Might help us hide if the money is right. I do have a hideout in the region as well, a private lair of sorts, humble but concealed.
There's also Jens Vanderbilt in the New Boer protectorate, right in Pretoria. Disgraced professor, as far as I know, once with the Trojan corp or another Moloch, if rumours are to be believed. Experienced in robotics and transhumanity, from what I can tell. He paid me for the opportunity to sequence me, and for a few tests on the psi side of me. Called me 'marvelous' - and I am so not immune to flattery. Idealist, at least portrays himself so - and these sharp peepers haven't seen anything to the contrary. He might be our best hope to have the ordnance disassembled and put to a useful purpose - generators, or what-have-you." 

"As for the problem of traceability, there are countless places in Africa where *something* went wrong, and the background is hot enough to prevent localisation. The side effect is obvious - something went *wrong* there, and aberrations and other  phenomena abound."

"I'll need to check. Carefully. Some in the military would just tac-nuke our location if they knew what we had.

Do you have any bolt-holes you can trust?  I'll need to bounce this message a lot not to give someone a coordinate to blast and that will take time."

It was too bad that the woman had been waxed. It might have been really useful to know what she did.....

Jerome took another look at the tablet.  He started to try and access its audio/video command history and the keyboard buffer, looking to see what the tablet saw and heard before its owner's demise. All of these things kept tabs...

Val, I guess we can exercise our sandboxy narrative privileges to decide where to bring the preggo bombs. A little banter between Blue and Jerome to work it out?
