    Ah, Jo sounded like she was having a good time! The Evil Emperor could only laugh and he watched as the city rushed to meet them. Wow, since when had it been so close? "Don't worry, Jo! I always have a plan!" He pressed the insignia within his cape's mantle and his rocket boots kicked in.

    With a sudden drag, their free fall ended into a slow, peaceful descent. They were still many feet up, but at least they stopped falling!

    "Did you have fun, Jo?" He asked, gripping her legs so she wouldn't slide off.

    Jo only clung to him even more tightly than before, her hair standing on end like a Tigeri's fur when they were freaked out. Maybe she was shivering, she wasn't sure, but she could feel her eyes still bulging.

    "Please.... don't do that again...." she whimpered, burying her face in his cape again. "At least not without a proper warning...."

    Oh... maybe Jo didn't like skydiving. Oh... well, how terrible of him!

    "O-Oh, I won't! I'm so sorry now, Jo... I thought... I'm sorry." Maybe he got a little carried away. As he recalled, she did scream pretty loud. He hadn't ever heard her scream that loud before.

    Thankfully it wasn't long before his rocket boots gently connected with the ground, something Jo would appreciate, and he carefully let her down, turning around to make sure she was all right. "You okay, Jo?" He asked, concerned.

    "I'll survive...." she croaked, standing on wobbly legs as she braced herself against him, pulling off the goggles.

    She hiccuped, hoping that the world would stop spinning soon. She had to admit, it had been pretty scary, and she wondered why Zurg had been unaffected when he acted like a sissy with amusement rides.

    "Guess you can handle heights.... after all...." she managed, trying to tame her hair with a shaking hand.

    "Here, let me take all that." He offered to removed the goggles, helmet, but left the scarf around her neck so she could bury her face into it. She was shivering! How could he have been so--"Oh, I'm fine with skydiving because... of my rocket boots." Yes, yes, it was a sissy reason, he knew, but being in a metal death trap scared him immensely! He was a bit claustrophobic when it concerned to speed and death...

    "Would you like to sit down? I know the trick." Zurg took her hand and put one of his upon her hip, leading her towards a nearby bench and letting her have a seat. "There. Maybe you should stay off your feet for a while. I'm sorry, Jo... I didn't think that--well, I guess that's my blame right there. I didn't think. When the minions freak out I just laugh, but..."

    He wasn't helping himself, was he?

    "....Are you mad?" He had to know.

    "Just a little," Jo admitted, gratefully collapsing on the bench and placing a hand upon her stomach. She hoped she didn't vomit her breakfast. That would just make a mess of the sidewalk.

    "And apology accepted." She tapped his nose, then curled up against him, hugging his arm. "Maybe just flying with your rocket boots instead of jumping out of your dreadnaught might be a better idea next time!"

    She half-smirked at him. "We should go to the amusement park again. Just the two of us. I'd say that's a suitable punishment, wouldn't you?"

    "....You're kidding, right?" The amusement park!? He hated rides! And... the last time he went he had gone with... "S-Sure! I can handle the amusement... park..."

    Oh, terrific. Well, least she wasn't upset too much and she was feeling better already, right? That was... good.

    "No, I'm dead serious." She smiled widely up at him. Ah, revenge was sweet. "And that's good~"

    She placed her hand over his, still hugging his arm and laying her head against his arm. Maybe they could stay like this a little longer? She'd like that.

    "Uh, Big Z? Just out of curiosity, how're you going to get back to the dreadnaught? Are you gonna fly again?"

    Blast, she was serious.

    "Well, I can't say I don't deserve it." He remarked casually, watching a few butterflies float along lazily. Hmm, Portal Breach was a bright world, wasn't it? And rather temperate. When Jo placed her hand over his, he overturned it and interlaced their fingers, marveling at how frail they were to his.

    "How will I get back? Simple! I'll just summon a shuttle. No biggie." It was rather easy to summon shuttle when you were the Evil Emperor. "Besides, the grubs are taking out the Dreadnaught and blasting a few things to see if weapons are calibrated. Could take a few hours."

    Jo chuckled. "You're lucky I don't hold grudges~"

    She remained silent for a few more moments, enjoying the summer breeze and his cool fingers intertwined through her own. "So how long're you going to stick around if you have a few hours to spare?"

    "Oh, whenever." He shrugged, having no time in mind. "Unless... you want me to go. In that case, I'll go. You have work anyway, don't you? I'm sure Proxy is waiting."

    "I can stay for a bit longer. He knows I was going to visit you and potentially be late or not come in at all." She kicked her feet together, removing her flats and wiggling her toes.

    "Do you want to go in and see him or stay out here a little while longer?"

    Aww, Proxy sounded slightly lonely.

    "We should visit him." Zurg brought his gaze back down, tugging on her arm lightly. "Proxy hasn't seen yours truly in a while and I haven't teased him in forever~! Let's go say hi. That way, I can drop you off, say goodbye, and let you work in peace. Then maybe Proxy and I can catch up on a few things. What do you say?"

    "Alright!" Jo said brightly, putting her flats back on and springing up back to her feet. "Proxy will be happy to see you again!"

    She took his hand and lead him into the shop, a bell tinkling as she opened the door. "Hey, Proxy! I'm back, with company!"

    Proxy looked up from repairing a watch, occupied with a customer. "Creator-Josephine, Zurg-Emperor," Proxy said with a nod, refocusing his attention back to the watch. "Just give me a moment and I'll be right with you."

    The man, a tall, beefy human in a spotted, striped shirt with a scraggly beer just shot them a cursory glance before double-taking and staring openly at Zurg, his mouth half-open. And he'd thought that the robot had been strange!

    "I get that a lot." Zurg told the man, waiting at the counter for Proxy to finish up. Really? People still found him weird after all the OTHER folks around here? He considered himself normal!
