    Children are a Blessing (Tag: Zurg, Red, Liz)

    Post by [ADPT.] Mira Nova on Thu Nov 19, 2009 7:28 am

    It was the day after the birth of Hellboy and Liz’s twins, and a Star Command shuttle was gliding toward Planet Z. While it was still at a safe distance from the planet (well, hopefully safe), the pilot switched open a comm channel.

    “Ranger shuttle to Planet Z, Ranger shuttle to Planet Z, this is Rangers Mira Nova and Erin Frame – requesting permission to land. Objective is to visit Red, Liz, and their babies. Over.”

    Mira glanced at her copilot, Erin, who was grinning with excitement. Mira gave her a brief smile, then returned her attention to her console. She hoped that this visit to Planet Z would go better than her last one had. …Maybe I could even see Coco again… She liked that moonshark…

    "Boxers!"

    "Briefs!"

    "BOXERS!"

    "BRIEFS!"

    Two maintenance grubs were deep in a fight of ultimate destiny when a control tower operator waddled in through the sliding control door and perked up its antennas.

    "We don't even wear underwear..." This grub clarified, hopping onto an overgrown seat and swiveling around to grub some controls. "Did you fix the comms panel?" It asked, noticing gum wedged in-between panels to hold them together.

    "Yeah. We patched it up real good." They both said in unison, saluting and showing all their gum wrappers.

    "We even used the banned gum that Darkmatter gave us before he left!"

    The operator simply shrugged and figured a quick gum job was the best right now and it went back to its work with a decent stretch.

    “Ranger shuttle to Planet Z, Ranger shuttle to Planet Z, this is Rangers Mira Nova and Erin Frame – requesting permission to land. Objective is to visit Red, Liz, and their babies. Over.”

    The scratchy sound coming out of the comms panel was more than enough to spook the three grubs and at once, the operator assuming position and putting on a pair of headphones.

    "I thought you said you fixed this!" It whispered, turning some dials and knobs to get a better reception.

    "We did! We used all the gum!"

    "Then why are we receiving transmissions from Star Command Space Rangers?" The operator squeaked, pointing to a glowing blip on the planet's radar grid. Oh the Evilness would not like this at all. Not at all.

    "Should we activate a defense moon?" One asked, already looking for the book of Grub Things.

    "No, no, no. That's rude, the Master would say. Besides, they said they were here to see....see....babies?" The other asked, making a confused noise as it tapped its little grubby chin.

    All three grubs simply shrugged at each other.

    "This is Grub-147 of operation tower D-9." The operator grub responded, still triangulating a fix on the signal. "Give us one moment to request permission to land from His Evilness. Over."

    It clicked off the transmission and swiveled its chair to point randomly at one of the two grubs.

    "You." It called out. "You go alert the Master about guests! He'd want to know about it!"

    The little grub wailed and clutched its head as it went out.

    "Doom! Doom! Doom!"

    “Roger that, Tower D-9,” Mira replied, leaning forward slightly. “Will await permission. Over.”

    It took several moments of waiting, but a charred grub finally came back and coughed out soot as it approached its twitching brethren.

    "He said it's fine." It wheezed, holding up a thumbs up as it gave a lopsided smirk before passing out onto its back.

    Good enough for them!

    "Okay Space Ranger shuttle, you are free to land within a docking bay. Some Hornets will supervise your landing. Enjoy your stay!" The operator said cheerfully as it cut off transmissions.

    Meanwhile, back in the med-bay, a certain Evil Emperor came whisking through the dual blast doors and dimmed his eyes as he finally caught sight of a familiar face.

    "Ahhh, Ms. Sherman, there you are!" Zurg said casually on a rather light tone. He spotted a doting Red playing with two eager, giggling red kids and mentally hoped nothing would break due to rough-housing. "How goes the recovery~? Everything going according to plan? You know, that morphine wasn't cheap! Had to make it on the spot..." He added off to the side.

    Hey, morphine wasn't needed in a torture block!

    Regardless, though, the Evil Emperor cleared his throat and tried to put this the best he could.

    "I'd hate to interrupt your recovering session, but..." He paused, wondering if he'd get flamed. "You have guests who want to see you both along with your..." Zurg eyed Eona already trying to crawl over to him in a futile attempt. "........babies." He sighed.

    ((Tis all right! Internet does that during the most inopportune moments...))

    Liz's eyes fluttered open. She was rather comfortable on the makeshift bed, still feeling a bit numb and drowsy at the residue of morphine still in her bloodstream.

    "Zurg, how nice to see you," she murmured, smiling slightly. "I don't think I ever actually thanked you for what you've done for us." She held out her hand to him, but she could barely raise it.

    "Visitors?" Hellboy inquired, looking up from his peekaboo game with the twins. "What visitors?"

    Noting Eona already trying to crawl away--she merely managed to drag herself a couple of inches away--he hooked a stone finger in her diaper and dragged her back, causing her to giggle and attempt to escape again.

    Ehhhh, cooties....

    Zurg didn't listen to his quirk however and he took Liz's hand out of respect as he approached the guard rail.

    "Oh don't trouble yourself." He began, fanning his free hand. Sure, he wasn't a kind and altruistic person but it wasn't like he could allow Liz to have her babies on the floor and dirty the place up! Just no, no, no. "Consider it a service free of charge."

    Bah, free of charge. He was going soft here!

    "And yes! You have visitors!" Zurg repeated, looking over to Red who just corralled his baby back towards him with a finger. Did Red know how dirty baby diapers were? He shivered briefly and made a little noise. "Anyway, you have two visitors but that won't stop there; oh no. I believe you will have several visitors in the course of this week or so." He continued. "You have an audience with Ranger Nova and Ranger Frame today, however. I allowed them to land but if you don't wish to allow them in--and that's understandable as it's been only a day--I will have no problem turning them away. Verdict?"

    "But still, thank you all the same," Liz said earnestly, squeezing his fingers once before retracting her hand. She could tell Zurg was still unused to being touched and being open with others, so she dropped the matter. She didn't want him to think that she was being too pushy.

    "Nova and Frame?" the woman enquired, arching a brow curiously. Those names didn't ring a bell... but then again, her brain was a bit fuzzy right now.

    "Yes, Rangers Nova and Frame." Zurg said again for the drugged mother. He eagerly took back his hand and left it at his side. "You know, the Tangean Princess and her human friend who is supposed to be dating Darkmatter?"

    Oh a sore subject but the Evil Emperor was moving on; slowly, of course. He was always one to linger on things, and that proved to be one of his downfalls he struggled with.

    "They wish to see your children."

    "Oh, yeah, Mira and Erin," Hellboy interjected, looking up from cuddling one kid in each arm. "They were at the wedding, remember, Liz? Mira's the blue-skinned red-haired one and Erin's the human girl with brown hair. They're both space rangers."

    Liz frowned, trying to remember. It took her several moments to sort through her thoughts. "Ohhh," she finally said slowly. "Yeah, now I remember. They were at Doom's banquet too."

    She recalled something about ghosting, but couldn't remember any more details. What was ghosting anyway? Odd that her mind held onto an unknown term like that.

    "Well, sure, send them in. Though I don't guarantee that I'll be very cohesive," she added with a small chuckle.

    For a brief moment in time, one of the corners of Zurg's cheeks twitched but he quickly regained face and feigned a pleased response.

    "Very well! I will send for a few Hornets and a Beetle to escort them right along~! Don't want them snooping around and reporting back to Star Command--we ARE enemies, you know." The Evil Emperor said cordially before he returned over to the doors. He paused when he reached them and turned around slightly to face the new parents.

    "If you need anything just press that red button over there to summon a grub. They'll work as best they can if that's not enough, I'll be in the Throne Room." He instructed, taking his leave in a rather plain and normal manner.

    Now he had Space Rangers running amok in his palace......

    Hellboy lifted Trevor's hand and mock-waved with it. "Say 'bye-bye' to Zurg, squirt! Bye bye, Zurg!"

    Trevor merely furrowed his brow and whimpered. Eona cooed and gurgled before falling back into her father's arms with a giggle, wiggling a couple of fingers after Zurg's retreating back.

    Hellboy chuckled and looked at Liz. "Right. Remember that? Star Command and Zurg're enemies." His face grew serious as he gave Trevor his stone pinky to teethe on. "...Maybe this isn't such a good idea."

    "Nonsense, HB," she demurred, shifting her weight slightly on the bed with a wince. "They're just here for a harmless visit. As long as both sides play nice, nothing could possibly go wrong."

    She laid back again and glanced at him, but he still looked a bit worried as he began to tickle Eona's tummy with the tip of his tail. She giggled shrilly and batted at it playfully as Trevor merely continued pawing at Hellboy's stone fingers.

    Liz's lips twitched into a small, wistful smile. If they could just stay like this forever, all together like one happy family, she would be satisfied. She did not want anything to ruin this moment of perfection in her mind.

    Nothing whatsoever...

    ((Awww! Da poor widdle messenger Grub got charred! xD))

    "Okay Space Ranger shuttle, you are free to land within a docking bay. Some Hornets will supervise your landing. Enjoy your stay!" The operator said cheerfully as it cut off transmissions.

    Mira smiled broadly. “Roger that! Thank you. Over.”

    No sooner had she cut transmission than Erin let out a little whoop, eliciting a laugh from her best friend. “Excited, Erin?” Mira teased.

    “Who? Me?” Erin grinned.

    “Hey, just remember to behave yourself,” Mira smirked.

    “Oh, pfft! It’s not like I’ve never done this before – I’ll be good, Mom.”

    “Uh-huh.” Mira followed the hornets and landed the shuttle without incident, and from there, it didn’t take all that long to reach the medbay.

    ((I MADE IT FINALLYYYY!!!))
