Chi was concentrating on the secondary systems as she let the others pilot the ship. It was odd that she was sitting in the back. Orders were orders as she adjusted one of the nobs. She was about to turned on the system when Hayate had beaten her to it. She sighed as it seem as she was literally just here for backing up the other two. It was fine by her.
She turned her attention to the front as she was asked a question. She made a couple of calculations. "If we keep the sides and bottom stealth, it should give us a good few solid hours before anything starts to dip down. Conserve it just right, it can last all day. I doubt the mission will take that long."

William listened to Chisana's explanation. If they did not cloak the whole ship, it could last long enough to see them through the mission. That was good.
"So as long as we don't cloak the whole ship and hang around all day, we're good on energy? Works for me." William stated. He was not much for logistics. He used the gear but did not fully understand the logistics involved. The sole exception was when it came to maintaining his personal starfighter.
William noticed that Chisana did not look happy about playing second fiddle to the Tenohs. Chisana was the designated pilot of the Black Swan; it was probably hard for someone rule-focused and detail-oriented like her to watch a pair of siblings who lived on a wing and a prayer pilot a craft that was hers in all but name. He could kind of understand her feelings on the matter.
Sakuya remained focused and driven as she waited for Jacob’s return. The wind blew ever slightly as she looked through the scope of her rifle. She was ready for whatever came at them and if needed, she would kill anyone who threatened her commander. The man took great care of them, even if he seemed cold.
She was doing what she loved. Feeling the handle gently, she smiled at her kill. The moron.

Chi checked the gauge for energy. Everything seemed to be well and good for the moment. She made a tiny adjustment to make sure everything stayed that way. William got most of what she was saying. She really wished that they had not run off so quickly earlier. She would have explained everything about this ship to him.
"Basically, but I got it. Most of those controls are back here. Any eyes on the captain?"

Jacob nodded to Ms. Tang and bowed to her as well. The two approaching were young bulls as their horns were short. She smiled as he opened his comm unit.
"Extract the ghost, then meet me in the alley you dropped me in, then we get our asses to south continent. There is a set of warehouses there we are going to get our goods."
He opened his comm to Sakuya.
"Ghost you paying attention? I have two you bulls coming my way. Take the one on the left and I'll take the one on the right. After this sort yourself for extraction."
Jacob stood up and started toward the the bulls approaching them. He smiled as he started to veer slightly right. All that mattered was that Sakuya was going to shoot one and give him a chance to take the other.

Hayate heard the captain's orders as she was monitoring the energy drainage. It was negligible since only the essential parts of the Black Swan were cloaked. The captain wanted them to pick up Sakuya, then meet up with him in the same alley they had dropped him off at. Once that was accomplished they were to proceed to the southern part of the continent.
"OK Captain, we are preparing to proceed to Sakuya's extraction site shortly." Hayate stated to Captain Marconi. She looked over everything. It was all green.
"Hey Bill, get ready to take off." Hayate said to her brother and co-pilot. Then she opened the channel to Sakuya.
"Sakuya, we'll be on the way shortly." Hayate said before closing the channel.
Sakuya nodded as if Jacob could see her actions. eyes still focused into the scope of her rifle, she spoke back in a soft whisper "Roger that, Commander. And I gotcha, Hayate. Thank you." she replied quickly.
Adjusting her position, she saw one of the bulls come into her line of sight. Pursing her lips together, her index finger pressed the trigger quickly as the bullet fired. Her bull fell to the ground, crashing into the dirt and causing a small cloud of debris to float into the air. As soon as she confirmed the kill, she backed up and bent her knees to stand. Taking her gun, she draped the strap around her shoulder as she stood. Looking behind her, she ran up the stairs to the roof for her extraction. "Okay, I'm set Hayate!" she whispered as she placed her hand over her eyes to look the Black Swan.

"OK, we're on the way!" William said to Sakuya. He was still trying to figure out how she got into her outfit. That would have to wait. Right now they needed to pick her up and wait for the captain to request retrieval.
"Hey Hayate, we'd better get a move on! The meter's running!" William said to his sister.

Jacob's bull was a bit taller and seemed to take a moment when his comrade fell to the ground. Sakuya was spot on as always and well that was the opening he needed as he drew his knife and walked over nonchalantly and inserted it into the creatures abdomen and pulled it out easily enough as the blade was sharpened on the molecular level. He bull seemed to be surprised but fell to a knee and Jacob just walked on past him for the time being and let him figure out his life. It wasn't a wound that would kill but it would ensure he didn't pursue. He didn't kill unless he had to do so and that meant sometimes making a new enemy. Life was filled with choices and sometimes going to prison wasn't among them.
He walked to the mouth of the alley and made a quick check to see if he was being followed, he was satisfied he wasn't being followed and waited for extraction.

Hayate was already on the move. She maneuvered the craft until she was close to Sakuya. They did not have much time to waste, so Hayate initiated a landing sequence.
"We're landing now, Sakuya. The meter's running and the captain's waiting." Hayate stated before she touched down. The landing gear engaged and the craft landed with a WHUMP. She should have slowed down a bit. That was cutting it close, even for a daredevil like Hayate.
"OK, landing is complete. Get on board, Sakuya!" Hayate urged Sakuya.

Chi listened to the twins as they talked to each other. She was a little more on the quiet side. There was not much that she could contribute right now. She engaged the stealth mode to all around the ship. Her eyes darted from one screen to the next as she monitored the systems. She stretched as she let out a large yawn. It was either very boring or the fact that the drug was slowly starting to wear off.
She jerked a little as the landing was a little bumpy. Her eyes popped open wide from their half droop. She did a little inner groan as it was a less than stellar landing. She adjusted the stealth again as she lowered the door for Sakuya. She patiently waited for her friend to enter as she waited to make minor adjustments again.
Sakuya gulped as she sucked her lips into her mouth at the landing. Nevertheless, Hayate was talented and did a fine job regardless. Sakuya would have crashed the ship and they'd have no way of getting back.
The raven haired girl looked behind her for just a moment before running up the ramp, her hand clinging to the strap of her gun as if to keep it close. Entering the ship, she grinned "Fancy seeing you fine people again." she winked playfully.

"Yep. It's a small world. Er, planet. Whatever... welcome aboard!" William said to Sakuya as the latter boarded. He could tell that Chisana was not pleased with the too-quick landing. She would have to deal with it this time. They were on the clock and the captain was relying on them. They did not have time to make sure they were within the parking lines.
"OK Cap'n, we've got Sakuya. No sign of hostile entities. On the way to your location!" William said to their brave leader. They needed to hurry. It was not like they had all day to see sights, roast marshmallows, and sing campfire songs. Sooner or later someone would get wise to the black ship flying about.
"All right Hayate, let's go grab the Cap'n!" William said to Hayate. William took a surreptitious look at Sakuya's backside. How did she put on that skintight outfit, let alone move around in it? He then face forward again.

Jacob had made it to the alley and was waiting patiently for them to arrive. He knew they had not asked about any of the fun features of the ship and would quickly give them a lesson. He hoped Chi had at least told them about the Gravity Lift which made extractions so much easier than trying to land or hover.
"Hey Swan...use the gravity lift to extract me so you don't have to land. I'm standing by for you."
The silent ship seemed to be coming although he couldn't really tell as he stood there.

"Uh, sorry. We didn't get a chance to read the owner's manual. We'll find the Grav Lift soon." Hayate apologized to the captain. She was flustered. Matters were not helped by William obsessing over Sakuya's ass... again.
William's priorities were... different. She was worried about getting them home. He was worried about how Sakuya got into that skintight outfit. Hayate was the more responsible of the Tenoh siblings. She had to be... otherwise William would get into frequent trouble with the captain.
"Hey Chisana, how do we activate that Grav Lift?" Hayate asked Chisana. The pink-haired one knew this ship the best. It would be wise to ask her about any special features the ship had.
