As soon as he thanks Yuri & Alex, he sees two soldiers. The soldiers were totally left looking at them.
"Uh-oh." said Ryuu.
"Go call the others! The traitor is escaping!" said the 1st soldier.
"Also inform that Miss. Yuri & Miss. Alex are helping him!" said the 2nd soldier.
"Darn it!" Ryuu yells & quickly knocks the 2 soldiers out.
"Come on! We've got to escape quickly! More soldiers are on their way!! I know a secret passage which leads outside. It isn't used a lot so there might not be many soldiers! Lets go!" yelled Ryuu.
Ryuu & the group go from the underground passage, taking out soldiers who saw them. Finally, they managed to get outside.
"Aw c'mon. I'm aching for a fight... again... It was a big fight getting in here actually." Alex said, she was a little bruised up but nothing too bad. "I could have killed those soldiers in two seconds. This place is getting messed up as of late."
The Lion furry looked around. "I know some place that we will be safe. Captain Jay. Nobody ever goes to see her. She's practically family. We're like sisters." Before anyone really said anything Alex scaled the nearest tree. "C'mon! Hurry!"
"If you would've fought them, we'd be in more trouble. The empire soldiers take their job waay to easily." Ryuu laughed a little.
"Captain Jay? Well, I'll take it."
Alex was leading the way but Ryuu kept taking wrong turns.
Then the bells started ringing and soldiers appeared everywhere.
"Soldiers! Please, get out of our way! I don't want to hurt you guys!"
"We have been assigned by Sir. Bahn. We cannot back down, we're sorry, Sir. Torao."
"Hmph... Bahn.." Ryuu grabbed Alex & Yuri with his hands & flew to a place where there were no soldiers at all.
"See, I told you guys the soldiers take their jobs seriously, won't even let me escape." complained Ryuu.
"Anyway, are we close to Jay, Alex?"
"Just hush and follow me." Alex said from the trees, she had blended in perfectly. He hair was still a vibrant red color but she hit it under a black beanie. She was wearing her metal claw extensions and some other armour. She wore a dark green jacket and black pants with black boots. It made her feel like a ninja.
Jay wasn't much farther now. She lived right on the water with a large pirate ship docked off the shore. Kat Jay was stronger than most, if not all the soldiers that would be sent after the trio so this was a particularly good place to hide.
Finally the trio came upon Jay's house. If house was the way to describe it. It was more like a shack but that's because the girl lived on the ship most of the time. Alex jumped out of the trees and onto the ground.
"This is Kat Jay's house." She said. Then she pointed to the large ship in the distance. "That is her ship. She is probably on the ship so now we have to either swim out there, hope that she is some how in her house, or wait for her to get off the ship."
"Darn it, if we fly, we'll be easily spotted."
Ryuu had never been in this kind of situation & was more worried than ever.
"Well, we'll have to fly, I'll be more careful so they won't spot us.."
Ryuu grabbed them again & flew a little faster so he wouldn't be noticed. It worked & they reached the ship Captain Jay was on.
"Woah, you weren't kidding 'bout that pirate ship."
"Well thank yeh." A short woman with black panther ears and a black tail. "Glad yeh like 'er."
Alex smiled and hugged Captain Jay. "Kat! I missed you!" Kat Jay returned the hug.*
"I missed you too Alex." Then she kissed Alex on the cheek. "So, who are these people."
"Oh!" Alex jumped and turned around. "This is Ryuu and this..." Alex gestured to Yuri, "Is Yuri."
Kat Jay nodded, "The same Yuri you'd talk about all day while in the crow's nest?"
Alex blushed, "Ugh... maybe?"
Jay laughed, "Alright. So, why are you here? On my ship."
"We're rescuin' Ryuu. Um, can you hide us for a bit?" Alex gave Jay her cute kitty eyes.
"Sure I can hide ya But ye better be able to work like the rest of the crew!"
Alex hugged Kat Jay again, "Thank you!!"
"Yeah yeah. Get movin. Get some more suitable clothin' for ship work. Ye would get found faster than me after treasure in them things."*
Alex nodded rapidly, "Okay!" Then she turned to the two others. "C'mon, we'll get you guys changed." Alex walked below the deck. "Yuri, you might be able to fit into some of my old clothes and Ryuu, we'll have to find someone that you can borrow clothes from. I'm sure there are plenty of crew members that would share with ya."
