Man, Gojyo thought, dodging a bullet as Janet yelled and Goku got between the idiots and Hakkai, I thought we left the assassins back on Shangri-La!
Good news was, they weren’t youkai assassins. A few quick strikes, and it would all be over.
Bad news was, they weren’t youkai assassins. And disabling humans was a lot harder than killing them.
Just when things were going so well….
It’d taken most of an hour. Long enough that Major Carter had made an excuse to get called away for a science-lab emergency and Teal’c had, politely, left for a prearranged lesson in Jaffa tactics; a nice way of granting them a smidgen of privacy as Jacob plumbed Hakkai’s brainstem.
Either that, or neither of ’em liked remembering how they didn’t get Jolinar out, Gojyo thought.
But Ambassador Carter had finally brightened, beckoning Janet over with the wheeled tank. Hakkai had shuddered, bone-deep, a hint of something dark appearing between his lips-
And these bozos had crashed the party, trying to hold everybody at gunpoint.
Sorry, guys. You’re not Sanzo.
Sure, ordinary bullets could hurt a youkai. Even without Sanzo’s extra oomph to block chi-healing. Human or demon, lead poisoning of the brain tended to be fatal.
But you had to hit the brain, first.
And when it came to aim, these guys definitely weren’t Sanzo.
Not enough room for shakajou; Goku’s having trouble even with Nyoi-bo that short….
Well, hell. Wasn’t his first close-quarters brawl. Damn sure wasn’t going to be his last, even if they were packing heat. “Keep going!” Gojyo yelled over his shoulder, grabbing Trigger-happy before he could shoot again, and delivering some bare-knuckle arguments as to why that would be a bad idea. “Get the bastard out!”
“Like hell am I taking him out of a host in this-” the Tok’ra started.
The doc just slapped him? Gojyo bared teeth in a grin, even as he body-slammed Trigger-happy into one of his friends, putting them both down for the count. Knew she was my kind of lady!
