"Come on, " Karter said, disengaging the lock and letting Lex out of the bus.

"Thanks for coming to your senses and doing the right thing, " Lex said, shaking his hand.

"Shut up. We've got a job to do."

"What do you mean? You took him out, and there's no one on the wrecker. We're safe, right?"

"Seems to me that Agent Fisk was a pro. If he's anything like me--and judging from the fact he wanted you dead, he's a lot like me--then he would have put a dead man switch on that sucker hanging over our heads in the event he was taken out of commission. Any second now, it is going to wake up and do something unpleasant."

"Wait, what's going to hap--"

The rest of the sentence was lost in a rush of sound as the whole of the complex was bathed in red light. The ground shook and a deafening roar split the air as a ring of weapon mounts around the rim of the wrecker decided to show Karter what real lasers look like. Beams of coherent light five feet around marched steadily across the landing ground, slowly working toward each other. Rather than succumbing to the moth-like urge to stare into the source of the light, Lex instead ran desperately toward the lab entrance. It slid open and he and Karter rushed inside. The doors stopped halfway, but Karter pulled open an access panel and cranked them shut.

Even with the doors closed, the sound was too loud to


"Trying to scrape together a weapon to take out that wrecker before it knocks the planet out of orbit."

"You mean you have all of this crazy crap and you don't have any weapons!?"

"I've got enough weapons to overthrow a world government, but they are all over in the armory, which is the first thing they went after."

"So you put all of your weapons in the same place!?"

"Knowing what you know about me, do you think it would be wise to have weapons readily available?"

"No. . . I guess not."

"Right, so get down to the hangar, and quit wasting my time!"

Lex ran toward the elevator, but considering the fact the lights had yet to be restored, it seemed like too much of a gamble to trust it. Instead, he threw open the doors to the staircase and bounded down them, skipping as many steps and hopping as many banisters as possible. About half way down, the lights finally stopped flickering.
