217 W. Koch St.
Bozeman, MT 59715
The building is on the corner of Koch and Third. The apartment is at the top of the stairs.
This week we picked up in Seattle. The run had been completed, so all that was left was getting home.
Giggy called his smuggler contact, and found out that her friend Marla, who had brought them up, would be back by in a couple of days. Meanwhile Quicksilver got his return flight scheduled.
When they landed, Marco called Giggy to let him know to come down to the air strip, and sneak in. Buckwheat and Giggy rode down and then Buckwheat summoned a spirit to conceal the two of them and the bike. They waited patiently near the gate for a vehicle to go through, then snuck in behind it. They carefully made their way over to the plane and cautiously went up the ramp. Once in the plane, they snuggled the bike up between some boxes. When Marco and Marla returned to the plane and closed the cargo ramp, Buckwheat let the spirit quit hiding them.
The plane started to taxi out to the runway, and then stopped. When they didn't start immediately, Giggy went up to see what was happening. As soon as he got to the top of the stairs, Marco waved him back down. When the plane started rolling back toward the tower, Buckwheat had the spirit conceal them again.
When the plane stopped this time, the hatch opened again, and two Lone Star agents started up the ramp. Buckwheat looked at the two of them and quickly ascertained that the one was a mage, who was wearing a weapon focus.
"Ma'am," the non-magical cop asked as Marla dropped down the ladder into the cargo hold, "Is there anything on board this plane that you did not declare to customs when you were preparing to depart?"
"Sorry, everything has been checked, and the plane has been under your observation."
"We have reason to believe that something may have been brought up here under some kind of magic cover. We'll need to inspect the craft before you will be cleared for take-off."
With that, the mage stepped up toward the bike and swung his sword, destroying Buckwheat's spirit in one stroke and revealing Giggy with his guns drawn and Buckwheat sitting in the driver's seat.
Giggy took one look at the two of them. "This is the new model. Absolutely top secret. We can't let anyone see the new features until it is officially unveiled at the show next week. Of course we keep it hidden."
The lady cop drew her gun, while the mage with the sword took a step closer. However, just then the back half of the bike appeared to explode. As the smoke began to clear, Giggy could see that the two cops were dead.
"No more fraggin' around. Get out of here," Quicksilver's voice came over the bike's radio.
"Drek! What do you guys think you're doing?" Marla bellowed in the way only an enraged troll can.
"Fly. You don't want to be here any more than we do right now," Giggy retorted.
"Marco, get this bird off the ground. Pronto," Marla said into her radio.
"I can get off the ground, but you'd better have some way to make me outrun rockets, or this is gonna be one short flight," she continued looking at Giggy and Buckwheat.
"Outrunning rockets, I can probably help with, but can the plane take it?" Buckwheat asked.
"Well, it'll have to," Marla griped as she disappeared at the top of the ladder.
Buckwheat called another spirit, possibly the most powerful he had ever called, and had it speed up the plane. They took off like a shot, getting out of range as quickly as retaliation could be arranged. After a while they slowed down, and Marco confirmed that there wasn't any pursuit, while Marla went down to berate her passengers.
When they finally landed near Sydney, Giggy went to visit the girls in the hotel. The four younger ones had decided that they wanted to return to their families in China, so Giggy worked out tickets for them and got them to the airport. With only one person left, he didn't want to pay for the hotel, so he told her that she could stay at his place until she found work and got her own place.
Then Giggy and Buckwheat went to deal with the two trucks and the cargo in the one. They were able to fence the cargo between two of Giggy's contacts and one of Quicksilver's. Meanwhile, Buckwheat painted the trucks white, to hide the lettering, which Giggy had discovered indicated that the trucks were owned by the Triad...
Despite this possible setback, however, Quicksilver was able to track down a buyer for the two trucks, who could get them parted out quickly and discretely.
Returning to his flat, Giggy discovered that it had been cleaned. Meticulously. Ming Shui, his new roommate, couldn't stand the clutter, so she had taken it upon herself to reorganize.
