03:02:26: Package picked up by Sable Nyx
03:02:27: Sable Nyx is on a roll, carving a violent swathe through everything in their path when they enter a crossroads. Dangerous territory. A field of Space Bastards, but Sable Nyx smiles. Winners aren't born; they're built. Sable Nyx lets loose a volley of grenades while igniting their rocket boots, soaring over the carnage below. One failed attempt. Two. Three. Four. Each attempted theft of the package raises Sable Nyx's adrenaline. Ignoracious Buttafucco fires a wrist mounted laser, signing the hip of Sable Nyx. "Not today, my friend." Sable Nyx twists in mid-air and strafes the area with bullets, hitting Ignoracious Buttafucco four times square in the torso and then resumes delivery.
03:59:06: Sable Nyx was feeling THAT feeling. The feeling of the win just over the horizon. A smile crept across Sable Nyx's face, thinking of exactly what they would use these credits to purchase, when Buckaroo Banzai launched an electrified bola at their feet. Sable Nyx can't quite internalize that the most painful step is also the most confident, as a dart is lodged into their neck before Sable Nyx's head even hits the ground, bringing on many hours of sleep. Buckaroo Banzai smiles as their delivery bracelet emits the familiar "Parcel transferred" message.
04:01:58: Someone once told Leroy Palestine that the best way to handle this job is if you keep it strictly business. Not personal. Do not concern yourself with revenge. Leroy Palestine knows Buckaroo Banzai has stolen one too many packages from them before, but brushes the sweat from their brow, banishing that memory. The heaviness of the EK40 surface to air missile launcher is starting to wear on Leroy Palestine but the time is almost here. Buckaroo Banzai's ship comes over the horizon. There it is. Leroy Palestine's finger closes around the trigger loosely, causing the launcher to commence lock-on. A small repetitive beep turns into a single tone, signaling the moment for action. Leroy Palestine is surprised however as the rocket launches behind them instead of in front due to user error. This mistake would sting Leroy Palestine the most, if not for the tower of rocket fuel they have chosen as their location. Buckaroo Banzai's thief rolls successfully by the towering pyre of incinerating flame, package still in tow.
04:02:01: Someone once told Leroy Palestine the best way to handle this job is like it's personal. Not business. Buckaroo Banzai got one over on Leroy Palestine once before. So definitely, for Leroy Palestine, that advice hits close to the chest. No guns. Not this time. Leroy Palestine stakes out the area. Hides in the shadows. Leroy Palestine see's Buckaroo Banzai running hurriedly down the street. Leroy Palestine takes one last look at the triple barrel sawed-off shotgun in their sling. Certainly safer. No. It's time for revenge. Leroy Palestine ducks out of the corner, an electrically charged knife in a firm grip. Buckaroo Banzai doesn't even skip a beat, slicing downward with a chainsaw that Leroy Palestine did not see before. Leroy Palestine takes a long horrified look at their severed limb on the ground, still clutching the knife, and then once more up to see Buckaroo Banzai escaping with the package still in tow far down the road. Don't worry. The Intergalactic Postal Service has excellent health coverage for limb replacement.
04:02:07: Buckaroo Banzai has been sucked into a portable black hole shot from Leroy Palestine's MSK-8500 rifle, not only losing the package to Leroy Palestine, but flung to unknown reaches of the universe. "Parcel transferred."
04:02:17: Buckaroo Banzai steadily took aim from a second story window as Leroy Palestine ran by below. Sweat dotting their forehead, Buckaroo Banzai inhaled sharply and squeezed the trigger. It was a miss. Leroy Palestine resumes delivery, trying to ignore the echoing rifle shot and fragments of wall exploding just overhead.
