Title: A peace on hold
Nakamura Akira - July 20, 2009 02:31 AM (GMT)
As peace settled over the Republic as the sun set, the president let out a low sigh, feeling as if there was nothing to worry about. A few hours earlier however, a robbery had been commited. One that would threaten her very people. The normal military was on leave due to a holiday, the perfect chance for a dark assassin to make his move.
The assassin had stollen a Gairyuki from the base of Nakamura Akira and intended to use it to kill the president, Naka giving chase, at most an hour or so behind. If the president was to be saved, someone had to stop the Gairyuki until Naka got there.

James was sitting there on under a tree just outside the capital and let out a loud belch before setting another can of soda down. "Ahh! Soda, the very mark of a great civilization! Thank you so very much!"
Cobalt was roaring playfully as he was given a great gift, a large wooden ball wrapped in metal chains. The liger lays down and starts to bat the ball around as it rumbled happily. Pausing every so often as zoids walked past. He kept a close guard of his new toy.
"Ok, Jessica said that we should return asap, but I don't see why we can't just admit we got lost on the way back. What do you think Cobalt?"
"Oooh! Good idea! We got lost and I get to play with my new toy!" Cobalt said now dragging the ball back to James to lay down.
"Then it's settled, We got lost in New Helic City! It's a big place and with my sense of direction we might even get lost anyway." The two laugh loudly as the sun sets. "Now lets find a place to stay in town."

"Don't start snoring now," Liger lied on the ground, legs folded beneath him like an ordinary house cat. He sat in front of the base, staring out at the setting sun with his pilot.
"Sorry, it's just that the sunset is really calming, and I couldn't keep my eyes open," Tigersight replied. He was laying out on the top of his zoid's head. He held onto a metal slat on the armor protruding from Liger's head. The sun dipped halfway below the horizon, and the sky shined down a spectrum of apple red to sunlight yellow at the horizon.
"And you have no room to speak. Your one of the only zoids I know that sleeps," he jabbed with a grin.
"What's wrong with that? I like sleeping. I am a cat aren't I?" he raised his head in a short "I'm a royal cat" pose before lowering it again and laughing. Tigersight shifted his weight with each sudden movement, laughing right along with him.
"Well, I'm not about to fall asleep with you laughing like that. So, let's watch the last of this sunset before we go back to the city."

Honor is a strange thing. It can lead intelligent men to make stupid decisions. It can lead criminals to follow certain rules. And it can lead men otherwise inclined to self preservation to put their lives on the line. And honor had led Philippe Delage back to New Helic City, in a situation that fulfilled all three requirements.
"Of all the stupid ideas..." Philippe shook his head for the tenth time this hour, complaining about the particularly liberal piece of legislation that had been pushed through the government recently. As he murmured his criticism his long brown and black hair swung in front of his face. "What dumb-pfft-fuck gave the entire fucking military the day off? So here I am back in the Goddamn Lion's Den. And where the Hell is Mo?" And talking to yourself too. Weirdo.
The sunset was shining brightly through the west wing of the palace, where Philippe was lingering in the shadows. He was lurking just outside of the President's office, armed with a .44 Magnum
the most powerful handgun in the world tucked into the back of his jeans. The fact that he'd managed to get this close to the Commander in Chief while armed was not lost on him. But he was there to protect the President, not to harm. For the same reason, his Bio Kentro, Flea, was patrolling the perimeter of the City, on the lookout for suspicious Zoids. His best friend, Andrew, was supposed to be joining him soon, but he'd been held up at Mt. Islena.

The nameless assassin moved the Gairyuki onto the main street of New Helic City.
"Hmph, this'll be to easy."
The blue dino Zoid slowly walked towards the Capital Building, unaware of there being any other Zoids nearby.
"One little beam and it's instant war. This being a Republican Zoid, it'll become a civil war that'll include the empire as well, and from the ashes a new nation will rise. Oh well, at least im getting paid to do this."
As the Gairyuki walked forward, Naka sent his Fury into overdrive, trying to catch up.

James was sitting back looking at a big map of the city. "Cobalt, take this left." He said and Cobalt ran spun around the turn hopping over a car.
"I took the left! The whole road is full of cars and really small." He said having to jump around cars on the side road.
"What do you mean that we're on a small road? This is one of the big zoid highways!" He said checking the map again. "Yea, ok once you get out of this road we'll complain to the map maker. And the hotel is just one block to the right." The liger hopped over a few more cars and small barrier into one of the zoid highways.
"And we're here!" James said turning his map mode off and laughs. "Perfect we're looking right at the Wild Wolf Hotel!" James and Cobalt both look up at the sign. "The Law Offices of Roger, Noel and Rowe. What's this?" He said aloud.
Cobalt mews sadly as he lays down on the main street. "How did we get lost this time?"
"I don't even know. All I know this map is wrong! Very wrong!"
"Did you remember to check it against the compass?"
"Yea I did! We even started at the right spot. The main entrance on the eastern wall!"
"Umm, we where watching from the southern entrance I think. Right?"
"Umm, I think so. Ah well, do you see any zoid that can help?" James let his eyes drift around before looking right at the Capital Building. "That's one big house."
"Could it be important? Maybe it's a zoid hotel!"
"Hey right! Lets go!" James points at the Capital Building and they would travel along the main road hopeful that their search for the one hotel was over.

The sun had finally finished setting, slipping below the horizon and allowing the world to take on a faint blue glow from the light of the rising moons. Inside the city, the zoid was walking slowly down the main street. He was coming up on their first turn on the way back to Tiger's house. Zoids weren't supposed to use the street because it was too small, but Liger thought he would have no problem navigating it. That, and he didn't know any other way to his pilot's house, since he rarely came into the city.
As he came close, they both heard frantic honks, squealing tires, screeching brakes, and to pull it all together, the loud stompy sounds of a four legged zoid trying to dodge cars. As they came closer, Liger slowed down, not wanting to get plowed into when that zoid made it off of the small road. He knew that there was no way the two zoids would be able to fit past each other in the small space either. He was in no hurry anyway, so he just shrugged as he came to a stop, a good distance from the road.
He may not be in a hurry, but he was really worried. So far, every single time he ever came inside of the boundaries of the city, he always wound up in a fight somehow. He pleaded that he could break his streak tonight.
After a few moments, the zoid flew off of the side road. The other zoid proceeded to mewl sadly, probably talking to it's pilot. Then it lay down in the middle of the road for a little while.
"Hey look, it's another Liger Zero," Tigersight stated the obvious.
"Yeah, but it's an empirial version," the zoid responded with the not so obvious.
"Huh? how can you tell? I thought the only difference was the paint job."
"I don't know, I guess it's because I'm a zoid myself, a Liger Zero too. I can just look at it, and I know it's a different model."
"Hmm, I think you'll have to teach me how to do that at some point," he smiled.
As they waited, Liger's fear of getting pulled into a fight whenever he visited the city reared up like a monster. He even feared he was going to develop a phobia of large cities if he got in many more fights here.
The EM stood back up and said, "Could it be important? Maybe it's a zoid hotel!" It seemed to be so exited, it spoke out loud this time. It was looking directly at the capital building.
"Well, usually one comment wouldn't be enough to make me resign myself to my fate, but that one sure did it."
"So, we're following them?"
"You know I'm probably never bringing you into the city ever again?"

((Sorry that took so long, guys. The new school year's been killing me.))
As twilight fell, Philippe settled himself to the ground, leaning against one of the ornate pillars outside of the President's office. His face bathed in the blue light of the evening, the ex-Marine raised a hand to his head, pushing his long brown hair away from his ear. As the bracelets on his wrist fell farther down his arm, he pressed two fingers to the bluetooth-like earpiece he was wearing.
"What's the Radar look like?" Philippe's Barigator was stationed near the palace, keeping an eye on Zoids near the palace.
"Lots of Zoids around, of course. There's 3 or 4 headed towards the palace though. Might be interesting."
"Damn. Keep an eye on them. Let me know."
((Might ETA description and stuff later. Nothing important though, so next person can post if they want.))
