Book 12: Force Multiplication — Part III: Fight or Flight


NARRATOR: Gate Five on Beggar's Boardwalk is the public access to the scuttled Serial Beggar.

Sign: V

LEGS: There she is.

BUNNI: Ventura, what took so long?

PARA: 'Mida-'Pida was out of Imitation Ovalkwik.

TAILOR: Shep cleaned them out.  His abductors must have absconded with his purchases as well as his person.

NARRATOR: Private entrances abound but remain locked in order to contain the rank-and-file, the riff-raff, and the rabble.

BUNNI: Forget it.  Helmets up, we're going in.

PARA: I picked up a tube of the Ovalkwik Refreshing Energy Paste.  You know, just in case.

BUNNI: Oh?  Do you think we might need to make the Sergeant angrier?

BUNNI: You know, keep that handy...

NARRATOR: This particular batch of rank, rabbley riff-raff is not going to be long deterred by locks.
