Chapter 9: Confrontation
Michael entered the warehouse on foot,Kitt following right behind him.It was empty. Kitt began to run scans of the warehouse inside and out.
"Michael, on the ground to your left" Kitts voice was soft.
Michael moved towards the spot Kitt mentioned and knelt, picking up a red scale. "Karrs?"
"I'm afraid so"
He straightened and moved to Kitts side, resting his head on the roof of the car. "Any tire tracks or anything outside?"
Kitt backed out and ran another scan. "I'm reading car tire tracks no older then an hour"
Michael jumped in as Kitt opened the door for him. "Lets go"
Kitts tires squealed as they left he parking lot at full speed. A few minutes later Michael frowned as he realized Kitt was taking them back towards the foundation.
"Kitt, whats going on? I thought you were following the cars tires?"
There was a unusual tone in Kitts voice as he replied. "I am Michael, they're taking us back to the foundation"
Worry began to knot in Michaels stomach as he took over control of the car and sent it into pursuit mode. The skidded onto the grounds just in time to see Rianna forcing a stunned Bonnie into her car. Michael or Kitt pushed harder on the gas pedal, neither knew for sure which did it first. Rianna moved to jump in the car, but Kitt beat her. Sliding to a halt with his nose pressed against her legs trapping her against her car. Michael jumped out and grabbed a hold of her as Kitt pulled away and scanned Bonnie.
"Bonnie is ok Michael"
"Good, Now why don't you tell me where Karr is?" He glared at her as she began to laugh coldly.
He shook her hard. "Tell me the truth!"
She laughed more, not even struggling. "It is the truth, have Kitt scan the car. He will find the rifle i used on the dragon."
Kitt had already scanned the car. "There is a lazer rifle inside Michael, and it has been fired recently."
"See? Trust me you won't find him anywhere." Her cold green eyes were still laughing.
Feeling Michael grip loosen slightly she kicked out and wiggled loose, then she was off and running. Michael let out a curse and took off after her. Kitt instantly moving to cut her off. She slipped between them headed back to her car and grabbing the lazer rifle out of it. Turning she fired, barely missing Michaels head. He halted and she raised the rifle, noticing Kitt move up silently beside him.
"Stay put Kitt, or he dies" She grinned triumphantly.
Kitt stopped immediately. His red scanner swishing back and forth fast. He was uncertain what to do, anything he could think of would get Michael shot.
Inside the darkened garage behind them, a single bar of blue lights flashed into existence before settling to track slowly back and forth. In the cars cabin more lights glowed into existence. Two monitors lit up with views of the garage. The view flickered and changed to what was taking place outside. The cars engine growled softly to life before settling to a level that was almost silent. Karr listened quietly as he explored the cars systems, familiarizing himself with them.
Rianna shifted the weapon, motioning Michael towards her car. Michael moved slowly, his hands gripped into fists at his side. Kitt moved forward grabbing her attention, and Michael leaped at her. She steeped aside hurriedly and he missed. Michael looked up straight into the barrel of the rifle. As she was about to fire several things happened at once. Kitt rushed forward, causing her to change her target and fire at him, and at the same time another car streaked out of the garage straight at her.
The dark blue Stingray hit her in the side, hard enough to make her lose her balance. Michael rushed forward and grabbed the rifle from her, turning to go check on Kitt as Karr continued to back her up against the garage.
"Kitt you ok, buddy?" He looked the car over worriedly, noting the scanner was devoid of light.
The scanner flickered to life and tracked back and forth slowly. "I'm fine Michael, the blast just overloaded some systems."
Michael leaned against Kitts door and watched as Karr tormented Rianna.
Playing a game of cat and mouse in which the mouse thought she had a chance of freedom, but never really did. Finally Rianna gave up and stopped moving, bent over with her hands on her knees. Karr silently moved forward, to make sure that she didn't try to go anywhere, till the cops came and picked her up. Over the next few hours the estate was a mass of confusion and movement. Slowly it died away leaving Michael, Kitt, Karr, Bonnie and Devon sitting in the garage.
Devon shifted slightly on the bench in front of the cars. "Karr we want to thank you for what you've done, you saved the lives of everyone here, and possibly even more then that. We want you to know that you have a home here for as long as you want it."
Karrs blue scanner flashed in an almost embarrassed way. "Thank you Devon"
Michael was leaning against the Trans-Ams hood when he noticed something strange. Leaning over his finger traced a series of marks on the cars hood. They were barely discernible, a shade lighter then the cars hood. He moved to the front of the car and was able to see the whole thing. Emblazoned on Kitts hood was a outline of a dragons head. Walking to Karr, he leaned over the curved fender and found a similar mark there.
Grinning, Michael stepped back. "Looks like you two got souvenirs from being dragons."
Both cars scanned their hoods, but Kitt was the first to speak up. "I kind of like it."
"You would." came Karrs cold yet slightly teasing voice.
"Well at least i don't have to worry about you trying to give me flying lessons!"
"Just until i get Bonnie to fix up some wings for you"
The three humans backed out of the garage, hiding their grins behind their hands. An instant later both cars shot out of the garage, racing full speed for the race track.
