    Long Overdue [Tag: Those necessary]

    Post by Agents K and J on Sat Feb 26, 2011 4:16 pm

    "You got that, K? C-Cause, those enemy mines are getting kinda clo--"

    The LTD rocked violently before Agent J could finish and K pulled a sharp right, narrowly avoiding a proximity explosion. All around the black Ford were mines, mines, mines. Big mines, small mines, some as large as your head. The one on your shoulder, for you human types. Clearly someone didn't want visitors. "Our subject has beefed up his security. I can admire that. Hang tight, Slick." K grumbled indifferently.

    Agent J did as he was told and he nervously clenched his seat. Things only got worse as one of the automated defense moons mentioned in the debriefing back at headquarters started to spark violently around the equator. Uh-oh, that was most definitely not good. Not good at all. "K. K, watch for the defense moon." But K kept the LTD straight, no emotion in his eyes or fingertips, and the moon's energy triangulated into a single, focused point. It was going to fire at them! "K, I know you hear me. Watch out for that defense moon." Still, nothing. K kept the path stubbornly and was too busy navigating through the mines.

    "Okay, now I know you hear me." J tightened his seatbelt and dug his heels into the car mat. That moon wasn't getting any better... "K, for last time, watch out for the defense moo--!" Well, shit, that's when it fired.

    An intense, blinding beam of super-charged energy screamed as it tore through the Cosmos, heading directly for them at sickening speeds, and J couldn't take it anymore.

    "KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!"

    Moments before sudden impact the LTD swerved hard to the left, doing a barrel roll, and the Agents were safe and sound in one piece. But not J. He was pale with fright, his teeth chattering on his bitten fingernails. Oh, that was sooo rude.

    "You did that on purpose, K!" He screamed at the top of his lungs. "I can't believe you at times! Really!"

    "Relax, Slick." Agent K was busy messing with the orbital re-entry controls, the LTD shuddering as it broke atmosphere. "I just wanted to see it fire. Impressive technology. L would have loved to have seen it."

    Hmph. J slouched back and crossed his arms, snubbing his partner by looking out the window. Red, red, red. Man, this place sucked. Red sky, red dirt, red everything. He noticed the surging electricity within the rumbling red clouds (of course) and he wrinkled his nose. "I doubt L would have loved to have seen this place. K." J swiveled his head to eye his partner. "Why are we here on the Angry Red Planet again? I don't recall being in a cheesy, old sci-fi movie."

    K was too occupied with his eyes glued forward, but he answered while reaching down to grasp his coffee cup and have a sip. Mmm, good java. Aya knew how to make it just right. "We're here, Slick, if you remember the meeting we had two hours ago, to make sure our resident evil emperor isn't up to no good."

    "I already call shenanigans." J had no faith in the cross-dresser and he wasn't afraid to show it. After what happened last time they met, J just wanted to take his Noisy Cricket and shove it where the sun don't shine. And you know what? The sun didn't shine on this planet. It was so... unnatural. Everything about this place was unnatural. "K, really. This guy has enough firepower to destroy Portal Breach, and like good policemen we just go to him? With only little peashooters? You remember that giant ray gun he had pointed at us, right. It's needle-like tip was enough to give you facial reconstruction." Hehe, never got old to tease K.

    "I remember." As usual, K was no fun. He set his coffee mug down and kept her steady. "But a job is a job, and we got one to do. What do you see on the radar. Anything."

    Meh, radar. J peeked over it to skim, and he shrugged. "I don't see nothin'. You would think after all the orbital defenses the guy would have some kind of terrestrial outfits."

    No sooner did J stop speaking, the radar and defense alarms went off in full force, the cabin of the LTD winking an angry red. That only happened when something was targeting them, but what?? There was nothing out there in this red, barren wasteland! And... that's when hidden towers rose from the sand. And not just any hidden towers.

    Turrets, and they already had drawn a bead on the intruding LTD.

    Together, both Agents remained silent and J sinked back into his chair, dumbfounded, while K kept his lips pressed in a thin line."You just had to go and jinx us, didn't you. Couldn't keep your mouth shut." He grumbled.

    This was going to be a bumpy ride.

    Boom.

    "Huh? What was that." The Evil Emperor Zurg snapped his head up, startled at the minuscule noise, and he glared angrily at the grub near his royal feet. "Did you plug up the toilets again!?" He shrieked, rattling his fists angrily.

    The tiny minion jumped in its boots at the sudden outburst and it cowered, shielding itself with its twiggy arms. "N-No, Your Evilness!" It squeaked. "I didn't clog the toilets again, I swear! No, no, no!" Anything to avoid another dip in the Grub Boiler! Anything!

    Just then, before the Evil Emperor could snarl another callous sentence, another grub came running as fast as it could. The poor thing was huffing and puffing so loudly that the Evil Emperor and shivering grub at his feet ceased what they were doing and watched in mild alarm and fascination. "Doom!" It panted. "Doom, doom, DOOM!" The messenger grub couldn't keep its pace any longer and it tumbled on its very own feet, sliding across the floor and into the Evil Emperor himself. Oof!

    "Watch it, you halfwit!" Zurg swatted the air above the insolent grub with his sharpened talons. "What's this about!? Can't you see that I'm BUSY!" With his glasses over his eyes and papers (now crumpled from his angered squeezing) in hands, the Evil Emperor had been caught at a most inopportune time. He was making policy changes and this required all his undivided attention! What did these idiots not understand!?

    "A thousand apologies, Your Evilness." The grub scampered to its feet and shivered before its master. "But His Evilness should be alerted that we have in-intruders!"

    The word did not set well with Zurg and he let his eyes flare for a brief second. "WHAT!?" He jerked harshly and scowled. "Intruders!? Who would want to invade! Are they Star Command star cruisers!?" If it was Nebula again, so help him he'll...

    Thankfully the grub shook its head, but it still shivered. "Not Star Command." It gurgled. "Black craft. Unsure of design. Resembles a flying brick with these rubber wheels and funny lights in the front. Unknown make." That was the best it could describe.

    What kind of ship was that...?

    The Evil Emperor rubbed his lower lip pensively, thinking. "Hmm, sounds like those automobiles Earthen use. I rented a book once from the library." Speaking of which, he had some to return. His bill was probably ginormous, but he'll worry about that later. "A-Anyway!" Zurg snapped and snatched the grub by its jumpsuit, shaking it. "What is it doing on Planet Z!? How did it get through the defense grid!? ANSWER ME!" Shake, shake, shake.

    "Ahhh!" The grub squealed and whimpered. "W-We don't know! The pilot had good skills to evade your superior defenses of evil! We do know, however, that it couldn't get past the turrets you installed a few months ago! They handled very well." It concluded on a positive note in hopes that the Evil Emperor would pick up on it.

    Which he did, and Zurg's anger was briefly subsided. "Oh? Well, that's good, I suppose." He stated off to the side before narrowing his eyes at the lackey in his iron grip. Being an arse, he gave one good squeeze to see the grub's eyes pop out like a doll's. "Was it destroyed?"

    "Hnnngh, not entirely!" The grub gasped for air, squished.

    "And why not!?" Zurg demanded, keeping his hold. "How can a defense system be good if it DOESN'T DESTROY THE TARGETS IT WAS INTENDED TO DESTROY!?" Talk about an outdoor voice in an indoor setting.

    "They were resilient!" The grub said in its defense, wincing at the sudden lack of volume control. "When the Hornets tried to contain the situation two humans poked out with weapons drawn and stated they... they..." Oh, the Evil Emperor was not going to like this.

    "They... They... They what!?" He shook the grub again, hefting it close to his face.

    "Ahhhh! That they are policemens!" It wailed.

    "WHAT!?"

    "Damn, K... I... I don't think that's going to come off..."

    Agents K and J watched the flaming wreckage of the LTD, both suits simply staring at the burning effigy of what was once their trusty, noble steed. Well, there went their escape ride. "We can work out the dings from the paint later; right now we got a job to do." K was a rather good sport about this, wasn't he? Considering that was his pride and joy. The man had funny priorities.

    J only sighed, making sure his oxygen mask was secure and leakage-proof, and he followed his senior partner. Anything was better than waiting on this home-made landing pad, with smoke-belching factories and skittering alien rats. Damn, even the rats were red!

    Together they both approached the yellow-and-black robots that had harassed them earlier and Agent J snorted. "Yo, tin-heads." He strutted up to one and looked it face to face. He was as tall as one, so why not?

    "I don't think that's a necessarily good idea, Slick." But nothing K could say would deter J from being a menace, and he watched his younger, more arrogant, partner rile up some trouble. This was only going to end in tears. J's tears.

    "Yo, tin-head, I'm talkin' to you." Agent J stood patiently, waiting for a response, but the robot apparently didn't think a conversation with J was worth it. "It's cause I'm black, isn't it. Do you see this?" He held up his badge, waving it extravagantly before the robot's blank face. Silence. "Yeah, that's right. I'm an Agent of the MIB, and I came here with my partner, Agent Gramps, to shove my polished, black shoe up your evil emperor's prissy, purple a--"

    J didn't get to finish his sentence and immediately the robot did something with its hands. Shift them? Whatever happened, the robot must have exchanged its claws for a taser and it zapped J real good; right in the gut.

    "HEY, OW!" J almost didn't know what hit him because it happened so fast. The young man found himself hopping over to K out of habit and he held his stomach. "K, did you see that!? Assaulting an officer right there! I say we book Mr. Drag Queen--" Again, the robots all around assumed hostile stances and J shut up quickly when he saw their tasers crackle with energy. "Oh, did I say that? I meant esteemed and most kind ruler. I don't know who would want to insult your master in such an ignorant and demeaning fashion."

    "Slick." K did his best not to roll his eyes and instead kept them pinned on a larger robot coming to greet them. This one was easily five times bigger than the yellow models and it lumbered on a single, heavy-duty track. Huh, he really beefed up security. When the massive robot rumbled and stopped a few feet before them K tried his approach. "Greetings. We're here to see the evil emperor. It's important." He took out his badge and held it before him.

    And as always, K's approach worked charms. The round robot extended is head to scan the badge and retracted it with a snap.

    "Follow." It instructed in a robotic voice before rotating 180 degrees and rumbling away.

    That apparently got them an audience and K pocketed his badge. "Being polite gets you a point when handling evil despots. You should know that by now, Slick."

    "Yeah, yeah..." J rubbed his gut one last time and went after grudgingly. "If you want to be a kiss ass..."

    He was just going to hate this place.

    If the Agents had behaved themselves and not fallen off the bread trail, they would arrive at the Throne Room without incident. Sure, they could have seen nefarious experiments, highly-illegal equipment, and just about everything that could break the law books in two; but let's not forget why the boys in black were here. To see him. Did they have a warrant to seize his property? Of course not. Did they come here with probable cause to coerce him to cease productivity? Not a chance.

    Zurg knew his rights, and he knew them well. The Agents had absolutely nothing on him. This was a check-up and nothing more.

    "Well, well! If it isn't my favourite men of the law! Come in, come in!" The Evil Emperor Zurg motioned for them to enter from his throne in the back of the room, appearing very inviting. "I hope my security measures were not troublesome." He smiled, keeping a good face. "They are to, ah, keep my staff and I safe from lawless intruders. I'm sure you understand."

    No doubt the Agents knew he was insulting them through his incorrigible act, but what could they do? They were powerless. This was his home, his rules. All they could do was just stand there and sputter. And hopefully not their blood by the end of the day.

    Whatever grubs and brain pods that were in the chamber for whatever reason quickly evacuated the vicinity and went to hide. They knew this would not turn out well, and they could never be more right.

    Like diesel fuel and fertilizer, the law and the Evil Emperor just did not mix.

    "Well? I'm waiting, boys~!" Zurg cooed to them. "Are you going to stand in the hall like logs, or are you going to enter and have a chat with little ol' me~?" He batted his eyes.

    Charming, real charming.

    The Agents didn't find anything suitable, from the minions to the heinous experiments, and J had to fight himself from going berserk while walking through the halls. "K, look at this stuff!" He whispered to his partner, shielding his mouth with the back of a hand so the robot escorts could not hear. "This is more than enough evidence to book this guy forever. Why aren't we doing something?"

    "Because, Slick." K kept his voice in check, but he realized the futility of trying to keep it down. These were robots - they probably had sensors that could pick up whispers as soft as a church mouse. "Even though all of this stuff isn't technically legal, we can't come here like we're diplomats. There's two of us, thousands of them. Do the math. We're vastly outnumbered." He paused and narrowed his eyes. "For now."

    Thankfully it wasn't as long to traverse the confines of the fortress and the robot had led them just as it had stated it would. The Throne Room - a cozy place for an evil despot. And the despot they had their sights on was already on his throne.

    And insulting.

    "And miss your ugly mug?" Agent J was dreadfully hopeless, and that cocky smirk proved it. Together both Agents entered, their polished footsteps producing hollowed echoes, and J took one step closer to the pompous alien. "I wouldn't miss your cheery face for the universe, your Honour."

    K just had himself a deeper inhale than usual and remained otherwise stoic. "We're here to check-up on your planetary arrest." Unlike J, K had a higher sense of self-preservation. Old age tends to instill that in you.

    J grunted at K's lack of a funny bone and the younger man crossed his arms. "Hmph, boring but predictable."

    "You mean boring and alive." Replied the ever calm K.

    Hmph. There was a mouth on that one.

    "Real cute." Zurg kept his reply to Agent J concise and simple, but if Agent J wanted to fight fire with fire then so be it. The Evil Emperor wasn't above stooping to his adversary's level if needed. Hence the alignment Neutral Evil, no? His red eyes fixed themselves upon Agent K and he let it rip. "I suggest you silence your pet monkey lest I do it for you."

    Oh, yes. Racism? So totally not below Zurg's belt. Human racism was quite amusing, actually. But back to the suit who actually had a shred of decency.

    "A check-up? Why, I'm flattered." The Evil Emperor pressed a dainty hand upon his chest as if he had just received a high honour. "You came all the way out here to see me! Oh, if only other citizens of Portal Breach had your thoughtfulness. Would you perhaps care for some refreshments? We have a special on Vulturan skree-skrak. Very delectable, I hear." Read: Vulturan death juice.

    "Nothing but the best for the hard-working members of the law." The proud pose Zurg assumed would be sure to get J's goat if the monkey comment hadn't.

    Oh, hell no.

    "What did you say, you flat-faced barbecue grill!?" J had half his mind--no, ALL his mind--to go up there and pimp slap that purple pansy. And he brought his A-game, too. Fortunately K saw the thought way before J even fabricated it and the senior Agent made sure to keep a firm hand gripped upon J's shoulder.

    "We'll pass, thanks." Never take food from strangers, especially those with evil in the title.

    K's effect on J wore off quickly, however, and Agent J yanked back his shoulder and gave the evil emperor his best disgruntled look ever. "Cut the crap, your highness." Evil or not, J wasn't a pussy like K. "We know about you receiving a communication link from an anonymous tipper. Know what that means?" J took this moment to smile because he felt he had the ace in the hole. "That means you violated your sentence and are eligible for enhancement. How you like me now, huh?"

    One of these days K was going to slap his own face and get life insurance.

    But Zurg only laughed at the lanky man's threat, the Evil Emperor even going so far as to slap a plated knee. "AHAHAHAHAH! Enhancement!? Oh, that's rich! Ahahaha!" The tyrant rolled his eyes and wiped a tear, his shoulders trembling from his snickering. "You're a funny man, Agent J! When I conquer Portal Breach one of these days I'll be sure to make you my personal comedian." Now to business.

    "Gentlemen, gentlemen." The Evil Emperor languorously got up from his throne and let his imposing shadow drape over them. That's right, he was in charge. "There's no reason to be hostile, is there? I am here, as you wanted me to be for a duration of three weeks, and I have yet to cause any trouble. I haven't once broken my sentence despite what you say, and I'm sure the person who tipped you did so illegally." No good Carrie, thinking she could play double cards and make the system 'fair'. Go milk yourself and have a litter.

    "So, that said, you have absolutely nothing against me, boys." Zurg let out another tickling chuckle, loving himself. "Now, run along. I'm sure you have more important things to concern yourselves with than pestering me for something so mundane. Why don't you go question Morgana for killing people with her buddy, Lilith, or stop by around Carrie's new lab? I'm sure you'll find stolen technology she snatched from reading people's minds. I'm pretty sure that's against the law~!"

    You got nothing on him.

    In the meantime, Jo had been completely oblivious that the agents had made their timely arrival on Planet Z. After the other day with the experiment and the dance party fiasco, Jo had made extra sure not to step on any toes and be on her best behavior. A rare thing for the mechanic, really, but not impossible. Jo had decided in the long run that the grubs were far nicer than the brain pods. She had yet to meet a brain pod that wasn't snide, whereas the grubs were far more open and talkative.

    And so, the mechanic entered the throne room, in search of none other than the Evil Emperor himself. She was a woman on a mission and Zurg was just the man she had to see. "Good morning, Big Z!" she said, entering the throne room, not realizing what was going on yet. "Hey, do you have any wood on Planet Z? I promised some grubs that I'd make them some carvings and...." Her eyes finally settled upon the agents. "....I think I missed something here. Whoops."

    Damn, how did he know about that!? J sneered when his ace had been trumped and he took his place near K, sulking. "Stupid, grinning windbag..." Agent J grumbled. They really had nothing. He was as clean and slippery as an eel. A purple one. One that J wanted to chop into sushi and serve to people. To hell with genocide, this guy was full of himself!

    "If that's all, then we thank you for your time." Always the diplomat K was. Except when he had a gun in his hand. "Everything checks out. Come this following Saturday you are hereby released of your punishment. Good day. Let's go, Slick."

    The Agents made their way to go, J still with a twisted lip and a sour taste in his mouth, until she showed up. A wrench in that purple pigeon's plan. Both men froze in their tracks and they literally stared at the woman, and not just any woman.

    Jo Pistonne.

    The smile as on J's face couldn't have been any wider.

    "Haven't broken your sentence, huh?" J remarked loudly as he came striding back before the alien. Busted. "K, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a provision in his Majesty's punishment that he shall NOT have outside contact from Portal Breach? Help a brother out here.""

    "There was." K wasn't going to miss this either, and things just took a while new turn. He approached Miss Pistonne and he meant some serious business.

    "Miss Pistonne, mind if we ask you a few questions."

    Hah! Victory for evil. Chalk that one up for the books.

    High and mighty on that throne of his, the Evil Emperor watched them go smugly and he was about to return to his affairs. Of course, where would the fun in that be? It was only natural that the universe had a cruel sense of humour and today... today it wanted to have a good laugh. And it was embodied the very moment Jo came into the Throne Room and declared her existence to the agents. Terrific.

    "J-Jo!" He stuttered in disbelief. Of all the times she comes to pester him now!? "First off, do you see any trees outside!? Why would we have wood when we have metal! Secondly, Jo!" He quickly pushed off his throne and stormed to her, both irritated and worried.

    This would complicate everything!

    Making sure he partially obscured the mechanic from the policemen he whispered to her and could barely contain the concern in his voice. "Jo!" He hissed tensely. "What are you doing here?! I thought you were down with the grubs learning about their culture!" When Agent K came over ready to interrogate her, the Evil Emperor growled and made sure to bar the man from stepping any closer to Jo. "I'll be acting as her legal aide in this." Zurg nearly snarled. "You have questions, you ask them to me. Got it?"

    Was nothing ever easy with Jo around?

    The dark-skinned man leered at her in a so-not-creepy manner. She looked at the other man, who seemed older, and squared her shoulders. "No, I wouldn't mind. I've got nothing to hide." Judging by the looks of them, they seemed to be investigators--they were probably police officers that had come to see Zurg. Whether it was a simple check-up or they were here because Zurg had broken another law or something was beyond her, but she didn't want any trouble with the law. For either herself or for Zurg.

    Zurg, on the other hand, seemed flustered to see her there. "No, but I thought I'd ask you anyway. Do you know how long it would take to sculpt something out of metal?" she pointed out. "And sure I was," she answered back in a lower voice. "But they wanted to see some of my carvings, so I was on my way to my room but I decided to drop by here first." Which had been a bad idea, huh?

    He came to stand before her, however, saying something about being her legal aide in all this, and she had the sudden impression that he was trying to shield her from imminent danger. These humans weren't that bad, were they? Zurg had beefed up his defenses, so there shouldn't be any cause for worry.

    Oh, now something's up. K watched the alien's sudden fretting with great interest and made mental notes. Apparently Miss Pistonne wasn't supposed to have made herself known, and it was if the tyrant had purposely hid her from them. Well, that was certainly damning now, wasn't it? J, on the other hand, was too interested in the mechanic.

    "Well, hello there, Jo. If that is your real name." Agent J shot the evil emperor his best confident quirked brow and wasn't afraid of a great big barbecue grill from Hell. "Guess you got yourself a little company, huh? You dog, you." He winked. Yes, that was supposed to be taken the wrong way - as intended. "Guess it's true what they say, K."

    "What's that, Slick." K internally sighed. Here it comes; the snarky remark that will get J in a heap of trouble.

    "That you can't keep a man away from a good-looking dame, even if they do look like a purple, windbag of an alien with a barbecue grill for a mouth!" Ha, J had wanted to say that ALL day long. Or, for as long as he had been chatting with the so-called evil emperor. Yeah, right. Ming called. He wanted his title back.

    Back on track, K decided to forgo his partner's snide remarks and proceeded with the questioning. "Very well. As her legal aide in this case, I will ask you the questions personally. What are you doing on Planet Z, Miss Pistonne. And as for you." He looked back at the evil emperor. "You know outside contact was forbidden; it was the point of planetary arrest. What do you have to say in your defense."

    Let it be said that while Zurg was not a jealous or covetous man, that didn't mean he was a very tolerant man, either. Seeing Agent J suddenly taking a liking to Jo got his metaphorical purple feathers ruffed up and the Evil Emperor wanted nothing more than to skewer Agent J onto a lightning rod and serve him like a human shrimp kabob. Maybe show Jo just how delicious human meat was. That said, Zurg remained on his best behaviour. As agents of the law they had the power to extend his sentence if given reason, and right now... Jo had given them great reason.

    But he had a trick up his sleeves! The imaginative ones.

    "If you think to rouse me up with cheap insults then you're wasting your time." Keeping his temper cool was one of the hardest things to do, but Zurg managed. "For the record, I asked Jo to come with me and spend the three weeks together. We're friends, and like good friends we stuck around for each other. That's not illegal." He growled, letting his eyes flare up. "And as for breaking my punishment, I did no such thing." He let that word draw out longer than it should have.

    And here's why.

    "My punishment said I could not have outside contact; as in on Portal Breach." The Evil Emperor was no dummy -- he knew how to navigate around the law and still make it perfectly acceptable. This was different from creating a ring to fool people. Zurg had still served the core aspect faithfully: not leaving his planet. "However, Jo is here, with me. And I am on Planet Z, not Portal Breach. Notice the difference~?" Let that sink in!

    "And if Jo is with me on Planet Z, then she is not an outside contact but an inside one and that wasn't barred in the details of my punishment." If the Agents tried to argue with him, Zurg was already prepared with counter-arguments.

    "Of course it's my real name," she snapped back, eyes narrowed. She really didn't like him and she really didn't appreciate him talking to Zurg like that. "You shut your trap, you good for nothing waste of space!"

    But she fell silent as Zurg answered all questions asked by the other officer for her and decided not to add anything else to her statement. She merely shot a stony glare at the dark-skinned man, trying to slowly burn him with her gaze. Or at least try to. For once, she really, really wished that she had laser vision. She'd love to render him into a pile of mush right about now.
