    He had a point. It was vast, beautiful, so full of twinkling stars and lights and planets, and yet it was so empty.... Jo turned to look at him, her cheek pressed against the cool glass-like material. She wondered when space had lost its luster for him.

    "Hmm? Oh, right! Could you drop me off at the shop? I think it's almost noon and time for me to relieve Proxy's shift."

    "All right, you heard the lady!" Zurg barked, clapping his hands repeatedly. "Chop, chop! Hit it, and no cute stuff! You know I don't like barrel rolls!" Ugh, he still couldn't handle amusement park rides let alone ship antics!

    The grubs snickered at the comment and snapped sharp salutes, getting right to work. "Yes, oh, Evilness! Destination: Portal City!"

    With a heavy lurch the ship pulled the turn with ease, going around Portal Breach's own moon in a cosmic U-turn and began its descent into the planet's atmosphere. They passed the ocean, the forest, a few other local views, and finally the city came up on the horizon. It wasn't long before the ship cast its imposing shadow upon the district that housed Jo's shop, and the Evil Emperor had the nastiest itch to blow something up.

    No, drop Jo off first; blow something up later.

    "Well, that certainly wasn't five minutes, was it." He growled to the grub in front of his sights, digging a cold claw into its shoulder.

    "Ehehehe~!" It whimpered with a shaky laugh.

    "Wow!" Jo laughed, a little dizzy from arriving so fast but giddy all the same. "Now that's what I call transportation! You guys don't skimp on the details!"

    Jo peeled off her gloves and removed her construction hat. "Well, I guess this is where we part ways, huh?" she said, stuffing the gloves and the goggles into the hat. She stepped out of the boots and pulled off the bulky jumpsuit, finally just in the clothes she had first arrived in. "Thanks for the protective gear, even though I didn't really need it." It was better to be safe than sorry, after all.

    "And I had a great time! Really, I did. I hope we can have another outing sometime soon. Maybe not on Planet Z, but some other place. My treat!" she offered with a large smile, clasping her hands together.

    Part ways?

    Zurg skipped commenting on the safety gear, knowing he was going to get absolutely nowhere arguing about just how important it was. "Well, you're welcome, Jo, and I'm glad you had a good time, but..." He politely chuckled and shook his head. "We're not exactly saying goodbye yet! You haven't been dropped off, see!" Meaning, Jo wasn't anywhere near a docking station where a shuttle could cart her back to shop! That required even MORE elevator rides.

    "Unless... of course..." The Evil Emperor tapped a tooth. "You... want to go out the airlock. We could arrange that, I guess."

    Jo put her hands on her hips and shot him a cocky smirk. "What're you gonna do, just toss me out the airlock like a sack of bunzels?" she joked.

    Actually, she hoped he didn't take that joke to heart. She rather liked all her bones intact and her body in one piece. And she didn't want to go just yet. Well, at least not this abruptly.

    But then again, knowing Zurg....

    Actually, he WAS going to throw Jo out like a sack of bunzels.

    "What's that, Jo?" The Evil Emperor asked, putting on a pair of aviator goggles and wrapping a very warm scarf around his head.

    "Er...." She took several steps back. "I don't think I like this idea anymore.... hey, how about we go back to Planet Z so you can show me some more stuff? You never showed me the mess hall! I still want to see the mess hall!"

    She didn't want to have a first encounter with the pavement!

    "Nonsense, Jo!" He said happily while slipping on a sturdy helmet. Zurg shook his arms to loosen them up, stretching. "This is how we do our minion initiations! Isn't that right, grubs?"

    "Yep."

    "Uh-huh."

    "What he said."

    "Can we have cake?"

    Needless to say, Jo was suddenly swarmed by the grubs and they strapped a same helmet upon her head, placed goggles over her eyes, and wrapped a scarf around her neck. One finally shoved her closer to Zurg, who had finished his exercises and was ready to go.

    "This'll be a blast, Jo! You'll see!" He gripped Jo firmly, like a bear hug but made sure not to crush her, and when the airlock peeled away with a raging roar he gave a thumbs up to the grubs and teetered back, falling with no doubt a screaming Jo in mind.

    And you know what else he did~? He let go and allowed her to free fall!

    And before Jo could do otherwise, the grubs had gotten her dressed up in protective gear and shoved her into Zurg, who hugged her close. But Jo didn't like this kind of hugging. She had a creeping, nervous feeling she knew what would happen next and tried to squirm out of his grip.... then felt them free fall.

    She had the guts to not scream, though she did cry out and cringed and really felt like screaming as she was turned all over in the air like a spinning top. All she could do was try to not throw up and cling to Zurg--wait, no! What was he doing?! Don't let go! No!

    "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

    Okay, now she was screaming.

    "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHMAZING!" Zurg was just cackling, pivoting in the air as they fell. Jo could see the Dreadnaught if she looked up--that is, if she knew where up was. The ground was rapidly approaching, but they still had plenty of room. The Evil Emperor proceeded to fool around Jo, smiling.

    "Look, Jo! I'm swimming!" He snickered.

    Ugh, just look at that smug son of a moozle swimming like she was swimming in the grav-lift beforehand! But that hadn't been dangerous! And this was! Her ears wee popping, she could barely breathe from fear and screaming her vocal cords hoarse and even her flailing limbs weren't flailing properly from all the pressure!

    She managed to glare at him through her goggles. So, he found this funny, did he?! She grabbed his cape and managed to crawl onto his back--somehow, she wouldn't stop to think about it--and grabbed his shoulders.

    "DOES THIS HAVE ANY BREAKS?! DID YOU THINK ABOUT HOW WE WERE GOING TO STOP!?"

    "YOU MEAN BRAKES, RIGHT?" He shouted over the roaring wind. Wow, Jo didn't like skydiving. Shame! He loved it! Spreading out his arms, he daintily began to twirl and enjoyed the scenery. "Zzzzzz..."

    "ZUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURG!" Jo screamed, grabbing him more tightly and pressing her face into his back, wrapping her legs around his waist to keep from slipping and falling again.

    She didn't like this, she really didn't like this at all. Her stomach was doing cartwheels and she was too freaked out to enjoy it. Sure, she enjoyed rides at the amusement park, but those were safe! Falling freestyle like this was liable to get them killed!

    "I HOPE YOU HAVE A PLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!"
