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


NARRATOR: The Battle of Beggar Bay was brief.  Also, alliterative.

PARA: Tarball and Tarvalon: stay on me, and bring Max.

Tarzan, Tartare, and Tarpaulin: sweep the walls and behind the bunkers.  Disarm and restrain Sanctum Adroit.  Stabilize the wounded.  No killing.

NARRATOR: All that remains now is cleanup.

PARA: Tarmac, sweep the command center.  Same priorities.

Sergeant, follow Tarmac and help out.

SCHLOCK: I'm your chaperone, not your security detail.  I think that means you don't get to tell me what to do.

PARA: There are two deployment lockers in there.  You could loot them for weapons.

SCHLOCK: I'm your chaperone.  The more you tempt me to leave you alone with the robots, the more important it is that I stay.

PARA: Somebody has trust issues.

SCHLOCK: Somebody told a robot to shoot my very own plasma cannon while it was in my very own hand.
