Pardon my french I actually don't swear, but to make the characters more like
themselves, they are in this story. And
much thanks to Ms. Busy Body and Kenny Loony (the Joseph Queens) for their
approval of my usage of Josephs. Sorry if I got the place where they met Faye
wrong. I actually can't find it so if you know where...

When Ed Attacks
The crew of Bebop was walking through the
spaceport at Tharsis City on Mars. ''So where is
this bounty that Jet said would be here?'' Faye said turning to Spike.
Spike was walking with hands behind his head,
not really paying attention; just letting his thoughts wander. He was trying to
listen for anything that sounded like their bounty, but all that could be heard
was this one particularly annoying person, with an odd voice that kept shouting
What are doing in that pile of luggage!!''
''Joseph! What in heavens name are you doing with that box?! No, you can't keep it!''
''Joseph! That is a flight sickness bag, not a hat!!''
Poor kid…thought Spike. He
started mulling over his own childhood. Suddenly, his introspection was
interrupted, by a hard thump on his head.
''Don't you ever listen to me?'' Faye glared
at him with her hand on her hips. Spike was still standing in the same position
as before and without turning around said, ''No.'' he then continued walking.
''Grrrrrrr... Hey, wait have you seen Ed?'' he
heard her ask.
He turned around to face Faye, as she looked
around to see if she could see Ed.
He smiled evilly, ''Oh, great you lost her!
What is Jet going to say? She was your responsibility.'' he said, trying to get
Stomping up to him, I want to smack that stupid smirk right off his face, she though.
''Me! No! She wasn't my responsibility'', she said, fuming.
Spike idly wondered when the smoke was going
to start coming out of her ears. Their argument was interrupted by a huge
They both whipped around in time to see Ed
flying through the air with her arms out like an airplane and then land on top
of an information kiosk and start jumping around. The attendant inside had
latched on to the desk and was hanging on for dear life, screaming, ''What's
going on here!! Ahhhh! Somebody please help meee!'' Ed had climbed up the sign
and jumped off it on to the top of the kiosk, hence the crash.
''ED!!!!'' Faye and Spike both made a mad dash
across the port to the kiosk
''Edward!'' Spike shouted'' if you don't get down here right this instant I'll ........'' he trailed off because he couldn't think of anything to threaten her with.
At Spike's yell Ed stopped jumping about like
an ape and looked down at them, she said, ''Helloooooooo, Spike person and
Faye-Faye!'' she said brightly seemingly unaware of all the commotion she was
causing. She then proceeded to wreak havoc on top of the kiosk.
Faye looked at him incredulously, and raised
one eyebrow looking up at him ''You'll what? Threaten her with Jet's cooking?
Come on. You know there's nothing that you can do to her.'' she snorted rolling
''Well it sounded good.... at first-''
''Men....'' she was then interrupted by the
attendant. (they had been completely oblivious to
everything else during their exchange).
''Hey are you two going to just stand there,
or are you going to help me?!'' she screamed still hanging on for dear
life. Spike started yelling Ed's name
again, and waving his arms around.
''Hey! Hey! Shut Up!'' She punched him in the shoulder,'' I've got an idea.'' He crossed his arms over his chest and waited.
Faye took a step towards the rocking kiosk,
she leaned forward slightly, cupped her hands around her mouth and yelled ''Ed!
Hey, Ed! Guess what?''
Ed sat up straight as an arrow and turned her
head to look at Faye, moved her goggles off her eyes and on to her forehead.
She then crawled forward to the front of the kiosk and leaned over the edge
trying to get as close to Faye as she could without actually getting off.
''OOOOOOOOoooo what is it Faye-Faye?'' as she
said oo her mouth formed a tall oval shape and her eyebrows went to the very
top of her head, '' What is it Faye-Faye?!'' Tell Eeeedddd!'' she rocked back
and forth in anticipation, causing the attendant to scream again.
''I saw a computer shop down that way; they
had all kinds of very interesting looking parts and programs there. I even saw
a computer with 'fishies' on it.'' she said persuasively.
Spike looked on with interest and then
remembered the attendant. ''Ahhhhh, don't worry she'll be gone soon'', he said
trying to be reassuring. He felt bad for this poor girl. '' You should get out
though just in case it doesn't work.''
She had just been staring at him the whole
time he was talking and it had kind of creeped him out, but then she snapped
out of it, nodded and left the kiosk through a small door and walked off
looking kind of dazed.
Spike just shook his head, and watched Faye
continue to persuade Ed to get off the cart. There probably really isn't any store. That's pretty clever though.
He had to admit. He smiled to himself as he watched. He remember the first time
he met her...
had been at a casino on one of the moons of Jupiter. He had been walking around
and saw that a there was a new game starting at one of the poker tables, this
one had a particularly nice looking dealer...
So much has happened
He then saw Ed swan dive off the cart and had
run away towards the part of the port that Faye had pointed at with her arms
out like an airplane yelling, ''Heeeeere comes Ed! Watch out Fishy Computer!
Heheheee''! She laughed evilly.
He watched Faye smile and her eyes soften as
Ed ran off. It was a rare glimpse into the real Faye, behind the masks and
''So is there really a store?'' Spike asked?
Faye looked at him, ''Huh? Yeah, of course,
''I thought that you were making it up.'' he
''O ye of little faith,'' she said patiently,
she punched him lightly in the shoulder, ''Come on let's follow her, make sure
that she doesn't get into any more trouble.''
