US Road Trip Special

Post by Kiskaloo on Tue 16 Feb 2010 - 23:13

The cyborgs of Special Operations Section Two once again come through to deliver a stunning blow to the Five Republics Faction and, once again, the various counter-intelligence and anti-terrorist agencies of Italy try to find out who keeps stealing all the thunder. Since it worked successfully the last time (Public Relations), the cyborgs are sent to disperse so that no one can grill them for details.

Having already visited France and Germany the last time, Kara, Claes and Michele decide to "Go West" and cross the Atlantic to visit the United States of America. Laine, a closet-American at heart, thinks that's a brilliant idea and...convinces...her handler to visit "The Colonies".

Hearing that her fellow petrol-heads are going to the largest auto market in the world, Allison successfully brow-beats her handler to choose America as their destination, too. At this point, more and more of the fratelli choose North America, especially when Director Lorenzo offers a €2000 Euro stipend and round-trip Economy Class airfare.

With much of "Top Gear Italy" now planning to be in The States, a decision is made to travel together and do a "Expensive Car Road Trip", taking advantage of the many high-end car rental agencies in the United States that offer exotic and luxury marques.

In addition to racking up the kilometers, the girls will spend a day in NY catching sights and a baseball game. They will then head to Southgate, MI for the Downriver cruise and then Chicago to connect onto the Historic U.S. Route 66. They head southwest on R66 to Sin City - Las Vegas, NV - to try their luck at the tables and try their skills at a weapons-range that offers well-heeled clients access to military-spec weaponry. From there, it's off to the finish line at Santa Monica , CA, where they evaluate their traveling experience overall.

[OOC]

Okay. We're all going to meet at the new Yankee Stadium in the Bronx ( Yikes! ). Once we're all present, we can start the RPG / collaborative story.

Kara turned in her sleep, the ulnar nerve near her elbow hitting the side of her suite and the tingling sensation bringing her awake. She rolled onto her back and rubbed her elbow, her eyes fluttering awake. She turned her head to see Michele having breakfast and watching a movie on his LCD. He removed the noise-canceling headphones.

“Good morning,” he said.

Kara raised her seatback up and tucked her duvet around her. Within moments, a flight attendant appeared.

“Would you like your breakfast now, Miss Pagani?”

“Yes, please,” Kara said.

Kara looked over and saw that Claes was still sleeping. There were nine seats in La Première Class on the Air France Airbus A380-800 they travelled in. Michele and Kara were in the forward middle pair and Claes was in the window suite across from Michele.

The plane touched down at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York in the early afternoon. They were escorted through Customs and Immigration and were met by a chauffer who escorted them to a Lincoln Town Car limousine and they started for midtown Manhattan and the Grand Hyatt New York. They checked in and were shown to their adjoining suites. They took showers, changed into fresh clothes, and took a limousine to Nobu, though Kara was disappointed to learn that Masaharu Morimoto no longer was the executive chef there. After dinner they went to the top of the Empire State Building and then returned to the hotel and retired for the evening.

In the morning, they made their way downstairs where a Yellow Modena Ferrari 599GTB and an Aqua Blue Metallic Porsche Panamera Turbo. They loaded Yankee Stadium into their respective SatNavs and started out. They drove down 42nd Street to the United Nations Building then drove past it and onto FDR Drive and then across the Bronx River and on to Yankee Stadium’s parking lot.

Kara stepped out of the Ferrari.

“Hey! I’m standing on sovereign Bronx soil!” she noted. “I hope that doesn’t mean I need to burn my boots. These ran Michele €1500.”

Beside her, Claes just pinched her nose in her hand.

Michele pulled in next to her and exited.

“I see we’re the first ones to arrive,” he noted.

Alitalia Flight 279 from Rome to J.F.K touched down at approximately 7:00 A.M EST, at least several hours ahead of Kara, Michele, and Claes. Onboard were the Allison-Brian fratello, the Hillshire-Triela fratello, and the Alessandro-Petrushka fratello. as the group got down the jetway and into the terminal, they all stopped for a chance to stretch their legs, having spent the overnight flight in economy class, which while comfortable, was sort of cramped.

"Well, we're here, guys." said Allison, yawning and smacking her lips.

"Tell me again why we caught the overnight flight?" asked Petra, still slightly jetlagged, rubbing the sleep from her eyes.

"Get our bodies used to the clock, of course." said Triela, stretching.

"Let's get through customs, then." suggested Hillshire, and the group nodded. Flashing their credentials at the Immigration and Customs checkpoint, and breezing through the usual "Business-or-pleasure" formalities, they got out towards the terminal exit to find a man standing with a sign that read McDonnell, Hilshire, Ricci. Allison immediately grinned and dashed towards the man holding the sign, quickly ensnaring him in one of her signature exuberant hugs.

"Cousin Tommy!" greeted Allison as she embraced the man.

"Hey, Allison! Good to see ya again, kid!" replied NYPD Detective Thomas McDonnell, cousin to Brian and Allison. "And these must be your friends."

"Tommy, these are my colleagues Alessandro Ricci and Victor Hilshire. These girls are Petrushka Ricci and Triela Hilshire." explained Brian.

"Nice to meet you folks." greeted Tommy, the rest of the group nodding in acknowledgment. "Your transport is waiting outside."

The group walked out to the pick-up/drop-off area where an unmarked Dodge Charger and an NYC Taxicab idled in anticipation of their passengers. Triela and Hillshire would be going to Hotel 31 in Midtown Manhattan while Alessandro had graciously asked Brian if he and Petra could stay with them at their cousin's apartment for the night. They made their separate ways, and the fratello all caught up on what sleep they lacked before meeting up for dinner at the delicious Brother Jimmy's BBQ. With their minds concentrated on tomorrow's Yankees game before the trip west, they retired to their resting places for the night.

The next day, Triela, Hilshire, Sandro, and Brian went off to go rent Triela's vehicle for the cross-country trip. Meanwhile, in the parking garage near Tommy's apartment, Allison pulled the cover off of her mint-condition Caterham Seven Roadsport SV, customized by Allison with the engine from a Honda S2000 and boosted in power by a Garrett Variable Geometry Turbocharger.

"This is what we're traveling over 2000 miles in?" asked Petra, shocked by the look of the car.

"Ain't she a beauty?" commented Allison with a grin. "I call her 'Catherine'."

"And I call you crazy." replied Petra, shaking her head. "What about our stuff?"

"Brian'll swing by with Hilshire, Sandro and Triela to pick it up in their vehicle. Come on, let's get to Yankee Stadium."

Allison started her Caterham up and turned on her SatNav, audio system, and Radar detector. The two drove out of the garage near Tommy's residence in SoHo and proceeded up 9th Avenue. Mercifully, traffic was mysteriously light this morning, and they would take full advantage of this. As they neared Yankee Stadium's relatively empty parking lot, Allison used the empty spaces and started doing a little bit of drifting, much to Petra's chagrin and annoyance. They pulled up to a stop near Kara, Michele, and Claes, the two other cyborgs shaking their heads.

"Morning, everyone. I see we're the only ones here so far." greeted Allison.

"And I have a feeling that Allison has gone insane." deadpanned Petra, motioning to the Caterham.

"It's a driver's car, Petra. And I am an avid driver." retorted Allison.

Before Petra could reply, the group's attention was taken by the sound of a supercharged V8. But it wasn't coming from a car. they looked about to see Triela, Sandro, Hillshire, and Brian approaching them in a Range Rover Vogue Supercharged V8 SUV.

"I guess Hilshire must've gotten sticker shock when they saw how much it cost to rent the McLaren-Mercedes SLR for the week." quipped Allison.

"Or maybe they're simply being practical. Unlike you." commented Petra.

"I'm telling you, Catherine is plenty practical for what we're doing!"

12 hours earlier

Jay ran into Priscilla's office to see his 'older sister.'

"Hey sis. I heard that some of the other fratelli are taking a week's vacation to see America, can we go?" Jay asked while making a face similar to that of a puppy begging for food.

The pile of papers on her desk moved as Priscilla sat up, almost on the verge of tears as she replied, "I can't go, Ferro wants this reports analyzed by the end of the week."

Just then the doors behind him opened up to reveal the Ice Queen herself, carrying a document box. "Since Hillshire, Ricci, McDonnell and Pagani are on vacation, I need you to go through their reports and file them away." Ferro said before turning towards the boy, "Aren't you going with them, Jay?"

Jay hung his head before solemnly answering, "I'd love to but I don't see how since sis is stuck working."

Ferro grinned slightly, before setting down the box and pulling out a cell phone, "Give me a second to make a phone call."
She said all the while thinking, I can't have you running around creating chaos by taking apart the security cameras and electronic doors...again. "Yes, I've got a favor to ask would you mind taking Jay with you when you go on the trip?"

Ferro nodded a few times before saying replying, "Thank you, you're doing a service to the Agency with this." Immediately afterwords she hung up the phone before turning back to the boy and handing him a black AMEX card with the Company's name on it, "Head to the front to meet your temporary guardian."

"What's this for?" Jay asked looking confused at the power of in his hand.

"It's your vacation pay." Ferro lied, it's worth it not to have to deal with him for a week, "Well what are you waiting for pack your things and just go."

Jay shrugged before running out of the office.

"Do I get vacation pay?" Priscilla asked the raven haired woman as she sorted through the paperwork.

"No." Ferro replied coldly.

"Why does Jay get vacation pay but I don't?" Priscilla asked.

"Your vacation time and pay are being withheld until the amount for medical treatment for the kid that you hit with your car is repaid." Ferro replied, "And I'd rather him not be here bored and unsupervised for a week..."

Also on Alitalia Flight 279; Fernando, Rachel and Francesca arrive from Rome to J.F.K at approximately 7:00 A.M EST. Once they gathered their bags from the luggage carrousel, they immediately walk to the nearest exits. As often, the rent-a-cops around the place stop everyone for identification and luggage tag verification. This meant for Fernando to show his American Agency ID and Shield more times than needed. At the last check out point, two Rent-A-Cops decided to confer with their immediate supervisors on the validation of the identification.

Security Guard 1: They look real, but this little lady (pointing at Rachel) cant no more than 16.
Security Guard 2: Yeah, and dont they show ID when coming in, not when they are coming out?
Security Guard 1: Yeah.

The second security gaurd picks up his 2-way radio and calls for security supervisor. The first confronts Fernando and his girls with a medium sized plastic box.

Security Guard 1: Put your valuables in the box, please. Watches, iPods, rings, necklaces, everything into the box.
Fernando: Fuck you... you aint going to stell my stuff. Besides such checks are for getting on board a plane, not off it!
Security Guard 1: Oh, you think you know the rules? Looks like we are going to have to detain you until...

A voice from behind the check point interupts them.

Voice: That will be all Officer. Those 3 are with me. Interfere with their mission and I'll see to it that you will be scrubbing gunk off from deep fat friers at the local Mikey Dees!

The security guards slowly turn to face an older African American male, in this late 60's, in a 3 piece suit and dark glasses, holding open a wallet with an American Agency ID card and shield in it. Fernando picks up his bag and walks out of the check point, Francesca and Rachel following him.

Fernando: Thanks Leon. Lets get out of here.

For a while they walk to the exit, where they walk to a parked car, a 1968 Oldsmobile Hearst; A Rearloader...

Fernando: You brought Maribelle...
Leon: Had to replace the springs on her, and got that 495 Pocket Rocket overhaulled to a 525 specs.

They open the rear of the hearst and put their things in. After the loading door is closed, the girls takes the passenger section and Fernando takes the front while Leon drive. In about 90 minutes, they were home. Fernando's home actually. They all put down their things and rested, Fernando taking to his bed for the first time in many years. Leon stays behind to prepare them food and get them ready for the big race.

10:00am, Fernando and the girls were at 55th and Park Avenue, The Maserati’s corporate showroom on Park Avenue. He was finishing the signing of various papers, before the dealer hands him over the keys to the only Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic left in the show room. Once the paperwork was finalized, the car was rolled onto 55th street. Fernando and the girls get inside, buckling up their seatbelts before driving away. Next stop, Yankee Stadium.

Once Alitalia Flight 279 touched down at JFK International Airport at around 7:00 AM. After grabbing the few bags that they could carry as most were taken in the support vehicle with the other fratelli, George and Adeline proceeded to go down to pick up Adeline's motorcycles waiting for her. She smiled when she saw her R100, and quickly pounced on the motorcycle.

"Oh my bella bambina (pretty little girl) I've missed you so much..." she cooed as she rubbed the side of the bike. "I'm going to ride you so hard, 2000 miles cross country through the fourth largest nation on earth. How's that sound bella bambina? Ready for the ride?"

"Ahem." Adeline looked sheepishly back at George, who had his arms crossed and was tapping his foot in a hard rhythm.

She quickly apologized and asked "You want to ride padre?"

"I'll pass Adeline," George said as his faced turned red with nervousness. "I'm just going to take a bus for now."

Adeline pretended to be saddened by her handlers fear of riding on a motorcycle with her but in reality she was ecstatic. Being a male rider is tough enough when you got someone on back but being a female rider was a whole different story. It could be borderline sexual harassment which was something Adeline was very uncomfortable with. But now it didn't matter. Now she could ride alone and not have to worry about throwing anyone off or going as fast as she wanted without someone screaming or clutching her breasts. After putting on her riding boots and kevlar jacket, she then slid on her Shoei helmet and boarded the bike.

"Where to padre?"

"Hmm, let me check." George scratched his brown goatee a bit while looking at his itinerary, which grossed Adeline out because she hated seeing men play with their facial hair. "We need to meet up with the others at Hotel 31. To get there we need to..."

But the screech of tires and the roar of a BMW engine was all that he heard before he saw Adeline shoot away from the airport and out into New York City. George sighed. It was impossible for him to control his daughter when she was on a motorcycle.

"So what do you think?" Inquisitively, a blonde woman nudged the passenger next to her.

"About what?" Clayland Stanaway yawned as he stretched his arms. Their two stage journey from Italy to Britain and then on to LaGuardia Airport was almost over. The Captain informed his passengers that they were now in a holding pattern awaiting their turn to land.

"Finally being back in the States. What's it been? Two years?" Laine turned off her iPod and stuffed it into a pocket of her fleece jacket.

"Has it been two years already?" He questioned with an amused grin. "I admit, I've missed the brash American atmosphere." Clay paused a minute. "Speaking of which, I'm sure you're gonna fit right in." His partner gave him a wide grin.

"This is my first time. I wouldn't miss it for the world."

From then until they landed Clayland listened in amused interest as Laine described all the "American" activities she wanted to do.

*****

"What?! What do you mean you don't have any Corvettes?" Laine leaned menacingly over the rental car counter. She turned the nervous clerks computer screen towards her as if she didn't believe what she was told.

"I'm sorry ma'am, but we have a limited selection. Lots of visitors this past week." Clayland checked his watch as he waited for Laine, who insisted on taking care of this particular problem.

"How about a Camaro?"

"Nope."

"Viper?"

"Sorry."

"Charger?"

"Not at this location."

"You've got to at least have a Mustang then."

"'Fraid not."

Laine rolled her eyes at the desk clerk, unable to contain the nagging voice telling her to be a smartass.

"So what cars DO you have?"

"I'm afraid we're all out of cars today."

"Oh you have GOT to be shi-" Quickly Clayland intervened and put a hand on Laine's shoulder, giving it a stern squeeze. He cleared his voice.

"Are you sure you have absolutely nothing?" He coughed and slid a 50 across the desk. Laine looked at him, then at the bill, and rolled her eyes.

"Well..." The desk clerk indiscreetly grabbed the bill and checked the computer again. "We DID have two no-shows today. I suppose I could give you their vehicles."

"How convenient..." Laine mutter under her breath. Already 20 minutes behind schedule, Clayland quickly paid the fees and grabbed the two sets of keys from the clerk. Laine stuffed her hands into her low-rise jeans after brushing a few strands of hair away from her eyes in annoyance. "I wonder what we're going to be stuck with..."

"Well these seem to be it." Laine wasn't even looking as Clayland led her towards two parking spots.

"Yeah yeah..." She sighed.

"I'll assume you'll want the purple one?" At the word 'purple' Laine's interest was perked. She glanced over to where Clayland was standing next to a sleek looking sports car. It was pearlescent purple and the badge on the grill read 'GT-R.' Surprised, the blonde whistled.

"You know, I think this might work." Clayland tossed her the keys and eyed the other vehicle next to the purple Nissan. She then let out a peal of laughter. "Wow, nice rims."

True enough, next to her car stood an imposing black SUV. It looked expensive and the very idea of mild-mannered Clayland driving it was the highlight of the day so far.

"Very funny. You know, you'd think someone out there was doing this just to mess with us. I mean, what are the odds eh?" Nevertheless Clayland couldn't but grin along with her. "We're already half-an-hour late, and we've got a lot of traffic to drive though before we get to the stadium."

Laine jumped into her GT-R and plugged her iPod into radio. The song Bad Girls by Pitbull immediately flooded the area as she motioned for Clayland to follow her. He watched as she exited the parking lot, her car's tires producing prodigious amounts of smoke as the throttle was hit hard.

*****

For those waiting at the stadium already, they managed to catch a tint of purple slip into the entrance. The car stopped and Laine hopped out of the driver's seat and leaned over the open door grinning.

"Heya."

"Wow, Laine. Sweet ride." said Allison, eyeing the GT-R. "Guess they didn't have the Corvette, eh? Just as well. Those things are not suited for touring. Much as I love muscle cars, I don't think I'd drive 2000 miles in one without taking a bottle of extra-strength 'Aleve'."

"I can only imagine, then, that we'll need morphine when we stop after a couple hundred miles in 'Catherine'." said Petra.

"Will you stop, already? The stock seats are very cushy, I'll have you know. if you paid attention, you'll see that I didn't install racing buckets." replied Allison huffily.

"What about security for the Caterham?"

"I have a remote battery disconnector, I stash the radio faceplate in the boot bag, and if someone tries to rip off the SatNav, I've wired it to blow and disperse Pepper Spray and marking dye if it gets too far from the Caterham. The wheels also require a pneumatic hammer with a special attachment to remove." explained Allison.

"Crazy prepared, aren't you?"

"I don't compromise."

11 hours earlier
Jay packed quickly bringing only the essentials, his Beretta completely disassembled and placed in a secret lead lined compartment in his suitcase along with his throwing knives. His electric tooth brush, his toothpaste, electric razor that Priscilla had got him, and his clothes were hastily tossed into the main portion of his suitcase. He casually placed some of his pencils in his pocket and placed some of his art supplies in his carry-on bag.

"I'm set." He said as he threw his carry-on over his shoulder and headed out to the parking lot to wait for his ride.

Outside Marco was waiting with his car, "Get in. I'm taking you to the Airport."


Present time
Jay sat in his seat in coach listening to music from an old cd player that he refurbished. A twenty ounce bottle of Pepsi was in his left hand while an assortment of sharpened pencils was tucked in an old glasses case that was slipped into his inside coat pocket.

I wonder who Ferro called to supervise me on this trip. Jay wondered as he started humming along to the song, "New Tattoo" by the band, Saving Abel.

"Only two hours to go." Jay said excitedly, "I can't wait to see what everyone's up to."

Adeline zipped through New York briskly on her R100, zooming with pleasure through each avenue and street that she wanted to turn down before she had to go to Hotel 31 to stay with Hilshire and Triela. George was on a bus off somewhere in the city and Adeline didn't really care for that point. She was having too much fun taking in all the sights of the city.

Nowhere in Italy was like New York City. The buildings weren't as high and glassy and there were never as many people and cars and other vehicles in the street. To her it was unbelievable, and if it wasn't for her conditioning to stay focused while riding she would have hit more then a few stopping taxis or gotten into an accident already. But really the only thing that she couldn't control was the wind of the city, which did make balancing a bit tough but it wasn't too difficult to deal with for the advanced cyborg rider. It wasn't long though before she assumed that she had to go back to the hotel to meet George. She quickly found it with her navigation skills and parked her bike in the front parking lot. George was waiting outside.

"What were you doing?" he asked Adeline.

"I was cruising for awhile padre. We're only spending one day in the city." George wanted to slap Adeline across the face but he held it in. He couldn't work up the nerve to his adopted daughter.

"Alright just don't leave without telling me," he ordered. "Triela and Hilshire are already here and the jet lag is setting in. Come on lets go chill out."

"Awe I want to keep riding."

"I'll make a deal with you. If you go out and ride tonight you can't go to the Yankees game tomorrow. How's that sound?"

Adeline smiled and followed her handler up the stairs and to her room. She hung around the room for awhile, mostly watching the history channel on the hotel TV and eating a few free meals when she could. When it was time to go to sleep, she could hardly contain herself and stayed up almost the whole night. She ended up sleeping well into the morning, only to to be awaken by the sound of a vibrating cell phone. She picked up the cell phone and found she had a text message from Kara saying;

Everyone is at Yankee Stadium. Where are you and George?

Adeline saw George was not going to get up easily and in her mind she formed a "devious" plan. Silently she got dressed and left the room, George still asleep while she left the hotel out for another early ride before the game. She ended up heading around town for a bit before heading into the Bronx to go to Yankee Stadium and meet up with her friends.


While she was riding around freely, Adeline caught a site in her eye in a nearby parking lot for Yankees fans. A Caterham with two girls in it along with a GTR sports car that immediately caught her eye. Stopping a bit at a red light, she looked and saw that it was Allison, Petra, Kara, and Michele. Smiling, she took another loop around the block for executing her plan.

After coming back to where the cars were parked, Adeline revved the throttle and gunned into the parking lot. Her R100 whined violently as it sped into the parking lot and Allison looked on in utter horror as the motorcycle and it's cyborg rider sped right towards her precious Caterham. Allison screamed "watch the paint" several times before Adeline hit the breaks and reared the bike forward in a reverse wheelie, or stoppie, and then came to a screeching halt in front of the car. Allison was still white as a ghost, which made Adeline laugh.

"You should see the look on your face Ali!" Adeline cackled. She then placed the bike on it's kickstand and got off to hug her friend. "You look like you had heart attack."

"Uhhhhh......" groaned Allison, in a near-state of catatonia.

"I think you kind of broke her brain, Adeline." said Petra, lightly smacking Allison back into consciousness. The adopted McDonnell sibling blinked, and she finally returned Adeline's hug.

"Nice to see you too..." she trailed off, eyeing 'Catherine' for any scratches to the hood or cycled fenders. She then glanced over at Adeline's R100. "I suppose the motorcycle was to be expected, but I think Petra's mistaken in calling me bonkers for driving a Caterham. I don't know how long periods on that R100 could be comfortable; You could've just rented a Triumph or something."

"Rent a Triumph?! Trade in quality German engineering for oversized, overcomplicated, and clunky British garbage?" Adeline exclaimed.

She then looked at the Caterham and smiled sheepishly. Adeline may have been biased in favor of BMW motorcycles but she was respectful enough to recognize her friend's love for British automobiles. She quickly made up for her mistake in words.

"Nothing against how they make cars though. But girl you don't know the first thing there is to know about motorcycles. Besides, this R100 is a sport/touring hybrid. I'll be able to go the distance with it. And it's not the only bike I brought along. I brought along something much more interesting."

Everyone looked at Adeline curiously. Two bikes? As if things couldn't get crazy enough she brought along two bikes? Adeline took no note of it though and proceeded to check out Laine's GTR. Laine then told her about how she just lucked out with the rental car agency to get the ride for the trip.

"Well it's a lucky break for sure. I'd drive it if I wasn't a biker girl. Now where's George?" A bus then came and George stepped out, which made Adeline smile.

"Padre!" She then rushed over and gave him a bear hug. The other cyborgs smiled and rolled their eyes at the results of Adeline's conditioning playing out before them. "What took you so long?"

"The bus took a million stops and you went too fast! I couldn't make the driver follow you no matter how much money I gave him. So unreasonable. But more importantly, don't ride so fast! We only just caught site of you when you went around the block and you were braking every traffic law in New York City!"

"Your point is padre? At least I found my way around. By the way if you wanted to follow me you should've just taken a cab Padre."

George thought about that and then realized he had made an ass of himself trying to barter with a bus driver to get off his route to follow his cyborg. Adeline then reached her saddlebag and forcefully shoved a Yankees baseball cap onto George's cranium. "Come on now, lets just go to the game."

"What's the rush?" asked Allison. "Look at the parking lot, this place is still empty." she said, gesturing to the largely-empty lot. "I think there's a better use for our downtime until the stadium opens. Brian, you mind getting the equipment out of the Range Rover and Clayland's Escalade?"

Obliging, the handlers got out their filming and recording equipment for "Top Gear Italy" and the miniseries' all-female cast began to "Mic up" and tested to make sure their audio was coming through. Hillshire was responsible for audio levels, Brian took care of camera work for the time being, and Sandro quickly did makeup for the girls. Set-up time whittled away 15 minutes of downtime, and they still had an hour and fifteen minutes to go, allowing plenty of time for any re-dos should something not go as planned. The cameras set up, Brian counted the girls down as he hit the 'record' button on the cameras. As he finished, he instinctively cued Allison to begin her lines.

"Hello and welcome to Top Gear Italy's first special. For the next hour, you won't be seeing anything except our own escapades as we embark on a fantastic road trip across the United States of America, or as we like to refer to them; 'The Colonies'. You're probably wondering who I am; folks at home on your computers have probably never seen me in the fan-made submission sent to the original Top Gear."

At this point, Triela and Petra move to join her.

"You also won't know, then, who these two are. Well, let me introduce ourselves. I'm Allison, and these are my colleagues Triela and Petra. Together, we make up the second string of presenters. The ones that you already know (and some of you probably fantasized about; you lot of dirty-minded gits) from our appearance in our pilot episode are over that-a-way."

Allison pointed over to where, Kara, Claes, and Laine stood, and Brian swung the camera over and pointed to Kara, cuing her to speak.

Sitting comfortably in a personal sauna at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel; Alpha and Liesel enjoy a leisurely steam after the rigorous late morning workout in the hotel's VIP pool.

Taking a deep breath of the moist, relaxing air; Liesel spoke softly, "I must confess; the strength of such contentment will be sorely yearned for in the coming days."

"Agreed," Alpha sighed, indulging in his relaxation. "It's a shame that today is the fateful day our assignment begins."

"The work facet of our initial arrival was a bit tedious and wearisome. After that however; it has been absolute paradise."

"Are you happy we came a week early?"

Looking over to Alpha; Liesel smiled meekly, "Incredibly."

Two weeks earlier, the SWA's main field unit was notified that a number of fratello would be traveling to America. The purpose was to take a road trip of sorts and do some filming along the way. Director Lorenzo approved of this impromptu vacation, but wished for the Rome unit to go with them; providing backup and general security along the way. As Field Commander for the Rome unit, Altheus elected for Alpha and Liesel to accompany the vacationing fratello teams while he himself remained in Italy to hold down the fort as it were.

As they continued to enjoy the open-air sauna, Alpha's mobile rang suddenly. After looking at the caller ID, Alpha eagerly answered the call.

"Go ahead," Alpha said into the receiver in a tone that resonated bits of anger and excitement.

"M...Mr. Lautani", the voice on the other end stuttered in a submissive and pitiful manner.

"Yes?"

"Your...um, I'm calling to notify you that your vehicle has just arrived. They are unloading it at JFK Airport as we speak."

"You're late; it was scheduled to arrive two nights ago."

"I-I-I understand that , sir. However the specifications you requested; um...they took just a little bit longer than anticipated."

"For what reason?"

"Our...our performance department took a...um...a liking to the project and saw fit to take their time."

"I trust nothing is amiss with the fabrication?"

"N-no, sir; not at all. The primary tests far exceeded our expectations."

"I should certainly hope so. Nevertheless, a contract is still a contract."

"Y...yes, sir; of course. Your initial deposit has been fully refunded to your account with the agreed upon 15% increase."

"Thank you, I am sure that Signore Marchionne will be pleased to hear that a close associate of his was treated with the utmost courtesy and promptness. Especially when he stands to make a substantial profit off of this little request."

"Of...of course, sir."

"When may I pick up the vehicle?"

"Preferably at your earliest convenience, sir."

"Excellent; make sure that the tank is full, the battery is charged, and the necessary essentials are in their necessary locations."

"Yes, sir. Absolutely."

With that, Alpha canceled the call and leaned against the smooth crystal wall once more.

"I take it that was the confirmation for the last of our arrangements?" Liesel inquired.

"Yes," Alpha answered. "If not for this devastatingly relaxing atmosphere, current company especially, I might have been much more irritated with the goon."

"That was you enacting irritation?"

"Well, he was two nights late after all."

"I dare say; I quite possibly might pity the Director whence the time comes for your contract to be renegotiated."

"Maybe...just maybe..."

Just as Alpha began to relish the thought of a squirming Giacomo Lorenzo as the invoice was finally tallied by his own accounting department for bonuses owed; Alpha's mobile rang once more.

"Damn pencil-pushers," Alpha muttered angrily as he answered the call. "Is there something important you forgot?"

"Why; is there something I should have?" the new, harshly feminine voice said.

"Ferro?" Alpha asked as he quickly stood up and walked to the door, ready to rush through it at a moments notice. "What's the situation?"

Liesel was right behind Alpha ready to follow in kind.

"Nothing is wrong," Ferro responded coolly, pleased at Alpha's shrewd sense of professionalism and attentive nature toward his job. "This call is strictly professional, no emergencies to report of."

"I see," Alpha responded as his breathing slowed and he began to relax a bit as he signed to Liesel that everything was all right.

Slightly irate, but quite relieved; Liesel prepared herself to leave the sauna as soon as Alpha was done with his call.

"Is Liesel there with you?" Ferro asked.

"Yes; of course," Alpha answered as he switched over the mobile to speaker. Sitting next to Liesel, Alpha adjusted the volume appropriately so that only he and Liesel could hear.

"The fratello teams are in route and should be arriving shortly if they have not already," Ferro began.

"If they have not received the messages of your impending arrival they should be receiving them now. Also, I'm aware that both of you are there as security, but I need you to do me a favor?"

"What kind of favor?" Alpha asked.

"Will this request impede our current assignment?" Liesel added.

"Liesel," Ferro answered, "that is yet to be seen. However, I don't believe it will. Since everyone is going on vacation, and Priscilla is busy working; Jay has no immediate supervision. After what happened the last time he was by himself for a week, I'd like you to take him with you; on the Agency's dime of course."

"What is his ETA?" Liesel asked curiously.

"He should be arriving at JFK International in...approximately less than two hours."

"Figures," Alpha said quietly with a huff as Liesel rolled her eyes and shook her head.

"Picking him up won't be a problem as we have to go there later anyway," Alpha said after a short while. "However, I have a few questions."

"Yes?" Ferro said in response.

"Is he going to be our support or is he just here on vacation?"

"Whatever you need him to be," Ferro answered. "I really don't care what he does so long as he doesn't compromise us, or is here."

"Fair enough," Liesel answered.

"How is his small arms training coming along?" Alpha asked.

"Slowly," Ferro answered. "He's using his M93R with the stock attached, almost as one would use an MP5. However, he is most proficient with a compound bow and throwing knives."

"That's...adequate," Alpha said through gritted teeth.

"That won't exactly count for much from a moving vehicle," Liesel added.

"Unless he plans on re-enacting a few Dukes of Hazzard heroics," Alpha continued.

"He just lacks proper field time," Priscilla muttered in the background.

"Look," Ferro began once more. "Just keep him out of trouble and out of my hair."

"Fine," Alpha stated; "Liesel and I will see how he likes riding with us for a stretch. After a ways we'll give Jay the choice on whether to continue with us or arrange for him to rent his own vehicle."

"Very well," Ferro agreed. "That sounds fair."

As Ferro disconnects the line, Priscilla can be heard crying in the background, "Why don't I get a vacation?"

[Allison points over to where Kara, Claes, and Laine stand. Brian swings the camera over and points to Kara, cuing her to speak. Kara, dressed in a replica Yankees baseball shirt, tight denim jeans from Armani and Yves Saint Laurent Black Patent Leather Penny Strap Loafers, steps forward.]

“Howdy y’all!” [Said with her cutest smile and a fast, little wave.] “We chose the United States because, even though everyone does five miles an hour, it’s not full of spiders, which puts it one up on Australia.” [Kara involuntarily shivers.]

“Fortunately, our visas allow us to be both entertaining and factual, so we can bring you a quality episode. Since this is both a road test and a road trip, we assembled a collection of cars. Here’s what Claes and I chose:”

[Jump cut to a Modena Yellow Ferrari roaring towards the camera, V12 engine screaming. The car goes into a hard turn and does a beautiful pirouette, coming to a stop in a cloud of tire smoke as the engine stalls. Your first thought is to think it was intentional, until you hear an “Oh, cock!” emanate from the open window. The driver’s side door opens and Claes steps out, dressed in a variation of the outfit she often wears around the garden – t-shirt (though now from Armani), denim jeans cut-off just above the knee (Dolce & Gabbana), tennis socks and Sergio Rossi lace-up sneakers in purple satin.]

“This is the Ferrari 599GTB. It is Ferrari’s latest flagship, a grand tourer powered by a six liter V12 pumping out 456 kilowatts and 607 Newton-meters of torque–”

“We’re in America, Claes,” Laine points out.

“Oh, yes.”

[Claes looks down at her palm.]

“So that would be 612 brake horsepower and 480 pound-feet. Anyway, it’s the successor to the Ferrari 575M Maranello, which itself replaced the 550. In the intervening decade technology has advanced a great deal and this car is literally stuffed with computers that manage every little function of the car. Personally, I like that protection and coddling it offers, considering the phenomenal performance this vehicle offers. However, your mileage may vary.”

[Jump cut back to Kara.]

“I for one look forward to opening her up and tasting that 16 second 0 to 150mph acceleration. I also hope I can get her over 200 miles per hour.”

[Her eyes suddenly go wide.]

“On the track, of course! On the track!”

[Brian moves the camera away and back towards Allison. Kara leans in towards Claes.]

“Nice entrance.”

[Claes grimaces.]

“I thought I had the manettino dial set to ‘Race’, but instead I’d set it to ‘Off’.”

[Listening to Claes give her detailed speech about the Ferarri, Laine leans into the cabin of the GT-R and pulls out a thick booklet.]

My turn already? Erm...one moment.

[Laine continues to scan through the book. She hears Kara give an urging cough as precious seconds tick by.]

Oh all right. It's purple.

[A disproving look from Claes. Laine sighs in defeat and reads the manual in monotone.]

Welcome new owner, to the Nissan GT-R. The premier performance car from the maker of world-wide quality automobiles. This handy manual will describe how to maintain and best use your new vehicle.

[Laine continues to flip through the pages until she finds a small fact sheet.]

This Nissan GT-R has 485 brake horsepower and 434 lb-ft. of torque. [Disgusted at the manual she tosses it aside.] And you know what else? It's also got more buttons than a shirt factory. Honestly, I sit inside, try to turn on the radio and expect it to tell me "I'm sorry Laine, I'm afraid I can't do that."

Don't even get me started on the Japanese only GPS.


[The others look at Laine with a surprised, quizzical expression. Laine responds with her own look that says "What now? Oh fine..."]

Fine, I suppose I like the color.

-Later that afternoon in Liesel and Alpha's suite-

After taking showers to wash off the after effects of the sauna, Liesel and Alpha re-checked the contents of their respective duffel bags as they prepared for the meet at Yankee Stadium.

"Can you believe Ferro?" Alpha said as he brushed his teeth. "She's got some nerve dumping that rookie on us out of the sky...literally."

"Unfortunately; I have yet to devise a method for us to alter the impending situation," Liesel said as she pulled up her second knee-high sock.

"Me neither," Alpha added as he spat the remaining contents of his mouth into the sink before he rinsed it out with a palm full of water. "I guess we'll do what we always do when we're in this predicament."

"Try to take over the world?" Liesel answered as she buttoned her new black jeans.

"I thought we were saving that plan for retirement?" Alpha asked while slipping on a new gray t-shirt before tucking it into his jeans and securing it with a fabric belt.

"It is never a wise proposition to trust such a notion in our manner of business."

"How so?"

"Errant rounds, snipers, explosions, and the occasional protest riot; those in our chosen profession can never be certain of when or even if we choose retirement..."

As Alpha peaks out of the bathroom, "...Or if it is chosen for us."

"...Precisely."

Gazing at each other for a moment with a mixed sense of sorrow and longing, Alpha smiled at the initial dark humor of the conversation and quickly changed the mood back toward thus.

"You forgot about nuclear detonations," Alpha said before ducking into the bathroom for a swift combing of his newly cut hair.

Slowly laughing as she buttoned up her top; Liesel answered, "Very true, however a highly unlikely worst-case scenario that may be. What would you manage in your remaining seconds if caught in the initial blast of a nuclear detonation?"

"Seconds; how many?"

"I surmise...five; no, three."

"Three seconds?"

"Yes."

"Just long enough to say 'I regret nothi------ng!' "

Fastening her last button as Alpha belted out his intended last mantra, Liesel suddenly turned to Alpha who faced her with an innocent grin making Liesel wonder if he was serious. Abandoning the inquiry altogether as she erupted in laughter joined quickly by Alpha.

After the short fit, Alpha took Liesel's hands in his, "After all, what have I to regret that is not overshadowed by what I have in front of me."

Suddenly struck by his words, Liesel looked up at Alpha as he seemed to delicately massage her palms. Staring into those light green eyes, she saw only his passionate innocence. Composing herself before getting too caught up in the moment, Liesel playfully pushed Alpha away.

"If you,sir; continue along this course," Liesel began, "we shall neglect the rookie's arrival and the other's departure as well."

"Ah, too true."

As the pair of field agents continued to dress themselves for the day, they remained in silence lest one say something to provoke the other; and thus further delaying them from their primary objective.

After Liesel finished tying her second boot, she stood up and walked to the big vanity mirror. With a couple turns, Liesel smiled at the result.

"Do I appear as an American to you?" Liesel asks Alpha.

Liesel is wearing black relaxed-fit jeans with a black leather single-row grommet belt. Accenting that is a short-cut button-up satin top with subtle ruffles at the sleeves and the bottom hem. The top stops just above her navel proudly showing off her toned mid-drift. Finishing off the look is a pair of black hybrid boots, a subtle black lace choker, and the ever present SAS medalllion that Alpha gave to her tucked safely inside of her top.

"You know," Alpha said as he finishes tying his new Converse sneakers. "You really pull off the American Goth look. I daresay you might even start a trend."

"Personally," Liesel stated, "I consider this outfit to be more punk than goth. It is truly unfortunate that American goth culture seems to have de-evolved into...what was that again?"

"Um," Alpha mumbles as he searches for the correct word, "Emo, I believe?"

"That would be the one," Liesel says with a hint of a shudder.

"And me?" Alpha asks as he stands up and turns in a circle. "How do I look?"

Walking to stand in front of Alpha, "I believe," Liesel said as she casually brushed a few stray pieces of lint from Alpha's shoulders, "you look like a common street tough."

Alpha is wearing a pair of blue relaxed-fit jeans with a dark grey shirt tucked in. Securing his pants is a brass-buckle black-fabric belt. A pair of black with white trim Converse All-Star sneakers complete the look.

"So," Alpha began, "not much different from my usual attire?"

"Well, your pants aren't as loose; and the same could be said about that shirt. However, I like it anyway."

Taking a few moments to gaze at the persona staring back at them, Alpha and Liesel were quickly brought back by the chime of their respective watches marking the new hour.

"Plane," they said in unison as they each lifted their duffel bags onto a shoulder tucking a package under their respective free arms.

Dropping off the packages with their shipping labels at the front desk, Liesel and Alpha check out quickly before hailing a cab for their trip to JFK International.

-Later at the Airport-

"Did you enjoy you're lunch?" Alpha asked as they left the small restaurant.

"For an airport establishment; it was indeed quite tasty," Liesel answered while scanning the arrival chart. "Correct me if I am wrong, but would retrieving our vehicle foremost not have been more efficient?"

"No, you are correct. It would have been more efficient, but since they made us wait a whole two days for our transportation; that goon can wait a couple more hours."

With half a smile, Liesel appreciated seeing a rare cynical side of Alpha.

"There it is," Alpha said pointing to the massive chart in front of them. "It's the only red-eye from Italy."

"Gate 33R," Liesel said confirming the selection. "Did Ferro send you a description of Jay?"

"She didn't have to, I know what he looks like."

"And he you?"

"He should."

"How so?"

"He's one of my current students."

"Ah," Liesel smiled, "I see. Priscilla has yet to take him from your tutelage?"

Alpha smiled a wide grin at the question giving Liesel all the answers she needed.

"This...should be an interesting venture," Liesel said as she folded her arms.

"Oh Padre why you got to be such a party pooper!? I want to be part of the Top Gear Italy video."

George groaned as Adeline walked away from him and stood in front of her bike. He decided to just stand and wait for his cyborg. At least she was having fun, he thought. At least she was having fun. Once she was next to her bike, she motioned for the camera.

"Because it would just be completely unfair if all of us were driving cars, I had to spoil the party and bring, much to my enjoyment, a two wheel ride. A powered two wheeled ride, a very powered two wheel ride."

(Looks over at R100 and smiles)

"The BMW R100 was first designed and released in 1977, the same year as this bike behind me. Yes, it's not the most modern thing in the world but what makes this bike appealing now and made it appealing then was it was one of the first bikes to combine a sport bike with a touring bike. So you could fly through any curve you wanted and still be able to not bust your ass going the distance."

(Steps on the bike and looks at the gauges)

"Keeping with the sportiness of the bike, the R100 blows most touring bikesclear away. And even though it'll only crank out 60 hp on maximum RPM, the bike is still capable of going a blistering 120MPH. Now I know that's not fast compared to some of these cars my colleagues have but lets face it, for a bike meant to be ridden to get you somewhere and to see the world, it's pretty damn quick."

(colt starts bike and revs engine)

"You may not get the whine of most Japanese sports bikes or that signature 'potato potato potato' sound you get out of a Harley V Twin but what they wont' have is the quality German engineering that allows this bike to literally be rode and rode and rode forever. This model is a 1977 and it's still going strong to this day! To top it off the seat has lots of room so you don't have to be hunched over in a racing position and can just sit up. But you're free to feel like you're riding in the MotoGP while cruising down the highway."

Jay was having a blast listening to his music from his cd player, when he saw the "fasten seat-belts" sign light up.

After pressing the pause button, he caught the end of the pilot's speech, "...and thank you for choosing Delta Airlines."

He got off the plane and walked over to grab his suitcase from the carousel.

"I wonder who is picking me up?" Jay asked himself reached for one of his pencils from his pocket, I just can't shake the feeling that I'm being watched... he thought as his heightened senses reacted to danger. What was it that Alpha-sensei said about what to do if you think that you are being watched again? I think that it was something along the lines of act naturally but be prepared, or something like that. He thought as he pulled the pencil out and slipped it under the edge of the sleeves of his jacket.

Allison blinked and almost missed her cue when Brian pointed to her as he got behind one of the stationary cameras, but she quickly caught herself.

"Right then, for those of you who don't know, that was Adeline, Top Gear Italy's two-wheel specialist. Moving back to four wheels, however, while Kara, Claes and Laine have chosen nonetheless very impressive cars, they are loaded down with technology, traction control, and a whole lot of interference by the Health and Safety boffins. In my humble opinion, then, in order to truly make the most of a cross-country road trip, you need a true driver's car."

Brian zoomed out the camera to get Allison, Petra, and 'Catherine' in the shot, Petra seating herself inside the driver's seat.

"This is what I'm talking about. It's a Caterham Super Seven Roadsport SV. Weighing in at a svelte 550 kilograms and powered by a 175 brake horsepower Duratec engine, this normally develops a Power-to-weight ratio of 318bhp per ton. Not bad, then--except this is my Caterham. And it's not normal in the least."

As Allison grinned, Brian moved to another shot and brought the camera closer as she opened the hood.

"You see, what I've done is fit a Honda F20C engine, the same one as found in their S2000 roadster, into the engine bay. On its own, it develops 247 brake horsepower, but I went an extra mile and turbocharged it with a Garrett Variable-Nozzle Turbocharger. This raises the power output to 350 bhp, and in this car, that develops a power-to-weight ratio of nearly 640 brake horsepower per ton! By contrast, the 599 can only manage 362bhp per ton, and the GT-R, a measly, pathetic 285bhp per ton."

Brian pointed to Petra next as she sat in the driver's seat of 'Catherine' (dressed in a miniskirt, Yankees tank top and a denim vest) and spoke her piece.

"What Allison fails to realize is the sheer lunacy of her choice. I for one, think she's completely mad for choosing a car that has only two seats, no boot, and very little in the way of creature comforts, such as the radio, which she installed herself. Oh sure, it's got a heater, but this is summer right now, so it's more useless than an M16 rammed full of mud. Therefore, all we have for Air conditioning is an open top, clear road, and her right foot. Not very sophisticated in the least. The lunacy doesn't end there. Take a look at the interior."

Brian panned the shot to the inside of the rather snug cockpit. The dashboard is more full than normal, playing host to a number of gauges.

"All of her tuning means she has to keep an eye on what's going on with the engine. On this dashboard, there's an entire bank of gauges to keep apprised of engine temperature, turbo boost, intercooler temperature, battery level, and so on. It's like living in the age of steam! And the engine is so loud, the radio and the speakers Allison installed just might not be a match for it when we've got the wind howling in our ears and her foot is pinning down the pedal. About the only comfort in here is this pair of cushy bucket-style seats, which my trip partner has assured me are comfortable over long periods of time. To top it off, Allison had gone off the deep end and named this vehicle 'Catherine.' When you think about it, laughable power-to-weight ratio then, is a small price to pay for comfort, air conditioning, an actual roof, sound deadening, and the sanity of SatNav and radio."


"Meanwhile, I think that everyone else is bonkers using what they have to make a cross-country trip. Traveling over 2000 miles is no small task." said Triela, the camera now panning to her. "You need something practical, comfortable, and already commonplace on the road. Something like this Range Rover here, which is my choice for our cross-country endeavor."

The camera zoomed out to get the Range Rover in the shot.

"Now this is no ordinary 'Chelsea tractor' Range Rover. Indeed, this one has a supercharged V8, giving it an impressive 400 brake horsepower. It has built-in touchscreen SatNav, a 14-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system, Sirius Satellite Radio, seating for five, and tinted rear windows, for that extra bit of privacy. It also includes 74 cubic feet of cargo space, which means you can literally carry things. Flat out, it'll do 140 miles per hour, and gets from naught-to-60 in 7.1 seconds. A wise choice then, for getting from New York to California in seven days, though that figure might change with how much we like or don't like being in this country."

Watching Jay from an elusive distance, Alpha and Liesel observed his actions.

"Goodness," Liesel said as Jay appeared more anxious by the minute. "He's absolutely trembling; what have you done to him?"

'Nothing that I haven't done to others who were my students for as long; and he's been with me longer than some already. It's a good thing though, he's made us already even without knowing it. It means he's learning."

"This much should suffice; we have yet to retrieve our vehicle. The others could have arrived at the Stadium already."

"Your right; lets make ourselves known."

"Without being stabbed by that implement in his palm, I hope."

"Of course."

Slowly walking from the crowd, Alpha and Liesel approach the baggage carousel.

"And...cut!" said Brian, stopping the recording on each of the cameras. Likewise, Hilshire muted the girls' wireless microphones as Brian powered the cameras off and broke them down for re-storage in Clayland's Cadillac Escalade.

"That was a good use of our time." said Petra. "Look, they're just opening the stadium now."

"We better hurry if we want good seats, then." said Triela, witnessing people coming from the subway and bus stop making their way to the box offices.

"No worries." said Allison, pulling out several sets of tickets from her messenger bag. "My cousin Tommy pulled through and got us all box seats right next to the Yankees' dugout. Section 17B is ours as a group."

"Wow, first time at a baseball game, and we're not stuck in the cheap seats?" said Petra. "I better write a thank you note to your cousin Tommy."

"Thank him yourself; he's coming a little later after the game starts." replied Allison, quickly moving to park Catherine properly.

"I heard Jay and a couple others might be joining us. What if they get here while we're inside?" asked Triela, locking up the Range Rover.

"He knows to call me." finished Allison. "Now come on guys, let's get going, shall we?"

Allison led off hand-in-hand with her adoptive brother, Sandro and Petra arm-in-arm, and Hilshire with his hand on Triela's shoulder.

(Unless they can get in before the 3rd inning, they wont be able to get in... After the 3rd inning the gates close.)

With the car safely parked in the executive and player's parking lot, Fernando and the girls head out to the nearby shopping mall. Though they were packed for a week long drive, there were some expendable items that were needed.

Along the various items picked up by the girls, Fernando bought a case load of 'Dry Gas/Octane Boost' because even with buying the highest octane money could buy, some gas stations tend to try to stretch their supplies by adding a wee bit of water in to the mix. The Dry Gas should be able to knock out the water in the gas right out, while giving it a bit of boost too.

A thermal ice chest was put onto the empty leg area of the unused seat, filled with ice and assorted beverages, including several bottle of Manhattan Special Coffee Soda, "With 3X the sugar and 4X the caffeine of any known soda drink (including Mountain Dew), Manhattan special is to be used when the driving hours become too long and boring... A Triple Lighter Extender was velcroed to the dash board, giving them 3 more outlets to power/recharge cellphones and laptops with. With hours of just sitting as the miles pass by, Fernando will need to keep the girls entertained. Thank god Juanita was not coming, because that entertainment would have been hours and hours of arguing as to what a relationship and marriage is!

They all have a good meal at the 'Comidas Criolle' Restaurant, a first time for Spanish Food for Francesca. Along with explaining what each thing was on her plate, they go over the "MacMillian American Maps" book, checking out the path they would take, making off rest stops, gas stations and assorted other items of interest.

A few phone calls to Leon, and a couple of other friends, Fernando and the girls head back to the car. They drive out of the executive parking area and into the regular parking lot, finding the group of SWA clustered at one end of the lot. There they wait, Fernando sets up the antenna for his radio equipment (CB and other personal 2-way gear). {There will be some areas going cross country where cellphones are not going to work-period. Having some back up gear may come in handy.}

IN the distance, Rachel notices a gang of teens breaking into cars, and taking the contents within, stuffing them into back packs and duffel bags.

Rachel: Daddy? Should we get out and stop them?
Fernando: What for? Its not our car(s) they are messing with. Frankly, if people do not properly arm themselves and their property, they get what they deserve...
Rachel: Alright...

As the minutes approach, the group, breaking into various cars along the way, manage to make their to Fernando's Masserati and the group of SWA cars. They slowly surround it, eying it, touching it, practically drooling over it. They try to peer inside, but the 99% Limo Black tint makes it impossible to see inside the car. Fernando nods at the girls, and all take out their arms and have it aimed at anyone at the group. The windows slowly roll down and guns point at the teens outside. They drop their belongings, raise their hands up and step away from the vehicle. Fernando and the girls step out the car. Nodding at the girls, They take each member of the group and slam them up against the range rover. One by one, the teens get bounded in duct tape and plastic ties. as Fernando reads them their rights.

Fernando: All you faggots got the right to STAY THE FUCK SHUT UP! ANYThing You Bitches Decide To Snitch On Will Be Used By The Man Against You! You Have The Right To A Mouth Piece To Speak For You To The Man! So I Dont Care Who You Know or Understand What I Said- STAY THE FUCK SHUT UP OR I'LL MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR FOR A LONG TIME!

One Of The lets his voice be heard: You Aint No Cop!

Fernando takes his wallet out, grabs the teen by the hair, and shoves his American Agency ID card and Shield into his face.

Fernando: I'm not a pig- like you think I am, I am the man.... Now, Shut the fuck up or else you are going to wake up with the homeless under the Brooklyn Bridge not knowing who you are or how you got there, but knowing that you like it there.

The teens all look at him, wide-eyed and in fear. The first teen tries to say something, but he gets a foot to his face by his friend.

Second teen: Dax, Shut the fuck up!

A rolling security car pulls up and finds the teens tied up with Fernando and the girls in control. The police immediately joins in, as they were called by Rachel while Fernando was giving them the 'Brooklyn Bridge' speech. After a while, and some explaining, the teens and their evidence was taken away. The area was cleaned up, and Fernando and the girls remained to stay. A couple of trips to the hotdog stand and the bathroom, the game was finishing up. The rest of the crew was leaving the stadium as Fernando and the girls stood around the Masserati having a snack...

"What a great game!" said Allison, stretching as she walked out of the stadium with her friends. "Yankees 9, Dodgers 2. Just wish I'd caught that foul ball, but that pretty much belongs to Kara. Still can't believe you now have a souvenir signed by A-Rod."

"Ballpark food isn't half bad." said Petra, placing a hand over her stomach. "Simple, but delicious."

"It's basically fast food, but done right." said Triela. "Nothing like hot dogs, burgers, fries, and a bottle of cola during a ballgame. I never thought that there could be a delicious stereotype, but then again, there's a first time for everything." she added, Hilshire smiling and shaking his head behind her.

As the group wandered out of Yankee Stadium, Allison spotted Fernando and co. waiting by their cars.

"Hey, it's Fernando and his girls!" she said, waving to them.

"I wonder how much I can get for it on eBay? I am sure there are plenty of Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers fans who would like to buy it so they can burn it in effigy," Kara notes.

"Give it a while, Kara." said Allison "You can cash it in when you're low on money, or if something 'happens' to Alex Rodriguez."

"Allison, do not give her any ideas." said Brian sternly. "We're professionals. We do not advocate the assassination of pro athletes in order to raise the monetary value of collector's items."

After meeting Jay; he, Alpha, and Liesel shared a few words explaining the situation and what they would do for the time being.

Making their way through the quick, yet tedious routine of gaining access to the freight area. The trio finally made their way to a massive warehouse/hanger hybrid where many delivery vans and panel trucks awaited their shipments. Soon the trio was joined by the pathetically submissive man that spoke to Alpha earlier.

"Mr. Lautani?" the man spoke as he held out his hand. "I'm Michael Hunt."

"Afternoon; Mike," Alpha responded as he quickly squeezed Mike's hand before having to wipe against his jeans after retrieving it. "This....um...these are two associates of mine."

"Pleasure to meet you both," Mike Hunt said as he outstretched his hand toward Liesel and then Jay.

Liesel glared at Mike Hunt's hand before glaring at him while Jay simply gave him a slight wave.

"Our car?" Alpha said pulling Mike Hunt's attention back to him.

"Oh...oh yes; of course. Right this way. Oh, and I need you to sign these agreements right here."

Taking the papers to look them over, Mike Hunt continued to talk as he led the way.

"The development engineers have been most eager to work on this project. It's given them many insights that they plan to use for the next generation of Vipers."

"Uh-huh," Alpha responded as he continued to look over the agreements, signing and initialing where needed.

"As you requested, the SRT-10 engine has been given the 'GTS-R treatment' as you put it and has been tested easily clearing 750 brake horsepower."

"Uh-huh."

"The Bilstein shocks have been replaced by a full Eibach setup with digital management system and the stock brakes have been replaced as well with Stop-Tech fabricated ceramic-tungsten carbide pads on 14-inch cross drilled and slotted zinc-coated titanium alloy rotors with matching calipers as per your suggestion."

"Uh-huh."

"As you requested the original 18x10 limited edition chrome wheels have been replaced with 17x12 DragLite alloy magnum wheels with gun-metal finish wrapped in BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sport all-season tires.Also to accommodate the output of the engine, the exhaust has been completely redone with an Edelbrock High Output system compete with headers, high-flow catalytic converter, and high-flow dual exhaust."

"Uh-huh," Alpha muttered again as he finished signing the last form. "And the other thing?"

"Oh...in the trunk."

Arriving at the nesting place of the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT-10 that would be Alpha and Liesel's ride for the trip, they found three men finishing up wiping her down with cloth rags. Taking the keys from Mike Hunt; Alpha and Liesel went to the rear of the car, opening the trunk in route.

Tossing their duffel bags towards the back of the trunk, Alpha looked over it's contents to assure that everything was in order. A pair of M4A1 assault rifles with SOPMOD block 1 accessory kits lay at the bottom. Taking one of the rifles from the trunk, Alpha pulled open the slide upon inspecting the weapon to his approval. Looking over to Liesel, Alpha noticed she pulled one of the Glock18 pistols from the trunk. Familiar with the weapon, she looked it over for a brief minute before nodding at Alpha in approval. Alpha saw one case of magazines for each firearm along with 1000 rounds of appropriate ammunition as per his request, but one thing was missing.

"Where are the grenades?" Alpha asked glaring at Mike Hunt.

"Um...well...you see," Mike Hunt stuttered.

"...A little bit faster please, we're already behind as it is."

"We have them on order, but we're still trying to cut through the red tape."

"I see," Alpha said taking Jay's duffel bag and throwing it in the trunk.

After taking out the other Glock18, four 9mm magazines, and a box of rounds; Alpha closed the trunk.

"We'll just have to find some along the way," Alpha added.

"W-wait...what?" Mike Hunt stuttered in response.

"Ladies first," Alpha said as smiled at Liesel.
Smiling in response, Liesel said, "Why, thank you."

With Liesel taking up the wheel, Alpha slides forward the passenger chair to let Jay in the back before sitting the passenger seat himself.

"Wait, Mr. Lautani," Mike hunt says after rushing to the passenger side.

Caressing the steering wheel for a moment, Liesel pushes the engine start button which completely gets the attention of everyone in the warehouse hanger as the walls nearly shake from the exhaust tone.

"The contract clearly states that you alone must drive this vehicle," Mike Hunt says trying to speak over the noise.

"Article 2, Section B; it says that I just have to be in the vehicle whenever it is in operation."

"B...but..." Mike Hunt stutters as he fumbles with the forms in his arm.

"My card, please?" Alpha says as he holds open his palm.

"Y...yes," Mike Hunt says as he fumbles with his pockets. Holding out the credit card, "Now remember, this is to be used for petrol purchases o..."

After Alpha quickly snatches the card, Liesel opens the throttling jumping off the line and out of the warehouse hanger.

"...nly," Mike Hunt manages as he finally slumps his shoulders.

As they make their way out of the airport parkway, Alpha pulls up a few applications on his PDA.

"Yankee Stadium was where we were to rendezvous with the others," Liesel said. "Is that still the itinerary for the time being?"

"As far as I know," Alpha said as he brought up the game scoreboard. "Bottom of the eighth, excuse me, top of the ninth inning. Too late to catch the game."

"Is that going to be an inconvenience?"

"I wouldn't have minded a corn dog," Alpha said as he brought up Google Maps on his PDA. "But I don't want to play catch up with the others. We'll get their faster if we avoid the toll roads, but we're going to have to go through the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge. Take this route and memorize the cross streets just in case we have to improvise. After the Kennedy Bridge, go flat-out until we reach the stadium."

"Are we going to voyage the city without acoustical sustenance?"

"Absolutely not," Alpha said as he pulled his recently upgraded Zen out of his back pocket, plugging it into the new Bose stereo system. "How about something appropriate?"

"Please."

Rolling up to the first light, a bright green '69 Camaro rolls up beside the Challenger.

With his window rolled down, the muscled driver whistles at Liesel before blowing kisses at her. In response Liesel glares at the Camaro's driver as she revs the engine twice provoking the driver's anger as he revs his in response.

"Jay," Alpha calls. "Are you buckled in?"

"Yeah," Jay answers.

"Good," Alpha smiles as he tightens his seat belt.

The song Alpha chooses is Move by Ox turning up the volume considerably. As the street light shifts from red to green a cloud of smoke leaves behind a massive ego in it's wake.

"Alpha?" Triela said looking at Fernando briefly before looking at Hillshire with a quizzical look.

"And Liesel," Claes said under her breath as she looked at Kara with her eyebrows raised.

Soon after, the sound of car alarms being triggered could be heard in the distance. Curiously, the alarms seemed to be coming closer. Before anybody could ask any questions, a modern day muscle car approaches the group donned in candy-coat red with black racing stripe accents seemingly being introduced by Megadeth's Train of Consequences coming from it's own stereo.

Idling to a stop, some of the group jump as their own car alarms are triggered. With the engine turning off, Alpha is first to step out of the Challenger, followed by Liesel, and then Jay out of the passenger side.

"That was good for a first-timer," Alpha said looking at Liesel. "From JFK to here in less the a half hour with traffic, damn good I must say."

"What other outcome could you have anticipated?" Liesel asked displaying a very satisfied grin.

"When your accustomed to sodding about Rome; a literal, genuine grid is an outright godsend. Am I correct, Kara?"

Kara nodded her head.

"Of course, the true test of a navigator is Tokyo. With all the buildings, you can't see anything so you have to pick a landmark near your destination - like Tokyo Tower or City Hall - and then use it as an aiming point."

She turned to Liesel approvingly.

"You look sharp as always."

"As do you," Liesel smiles as she approaches Kara.

Taking a moment to admire each other's attire, Liesel and Kara share a brief hug before Kara shares one with Alpha as well.

Making the rounds, Alpha, Liesel, and Jay greet those they know while introducing themselves to those they are meeting only now.

As she moves to greet Triela, the first thing Triela notices is the chain of Alpha's medallion hugging Liesel's neck below the lace choker. Making an effort to mask her wishes and emotions, Triela silently shakes Liesel's hand.

Walking toward Fernando, Alpha immediately notices that arrogantly confident attitude that he remembers from so long ago.

"I see you've quickly re-adjusted to New York City," Alpha says as he holds his hand out for Fernando.

Fernando takes Alpha's hand and gives him a appropriate NYC grip. "You can take the New Yorker out of New York, but you cant take New York out of the New Yorker!"

"So, in the city of love and violence, I'm sure you probably got some action already. What was it- thwarted a grandma from being mugged? Saved another girl from being raped? Ended a drug deal?", Alpha asks.

"Well, if you noticed the line of broken car windows...", Fernando started to say.
"No....", Alpha replies.
"I would had left them alone, if they did start to eye the Masserati...", Fernando explains.
Alpha looks about the ground of the immediate area, "Well... since I dont see any blood, what happened to them?"
"The girls and I held them until the boys in blue took them away.", Fernando explains.
"I see...", Alpha answers.

Everyone looks around for a moment, then turn to Kara.

"Where too, miss? I'm not leading this show.", Fernando asks her.

"Southgate, specifically. It's one of the suburbs where they hold the annual 'Cruisin' Downriver' event." said Allison. "We'd wanna stay away from Detroit; these cars would attract too much attention, and we'd be facing a bunch of morons trying to carjack us."

She then waved a final time to her Cousin Tommy as he called loudly from his Dodge Charger, exiting along with the post-game traffic. As soon as he was out of sight, Allison continued.

"I know we're cyborgs, and that Alpha and Liesel have preparations for such a scenario, but we don't want to raise a scene with a gunfight. Nonetheless, we're all carrying, right?"

Everyone lifted some article of clothing to reveal that they were indeed carrying at least their sidearms.

"All right then, let's get this show on the road. Mount the in-car cameras, and we'll get moving."

Brian and Clayland quickly attached the diminutive in-car cameras to each of Top Gear Italy's windshields, and as everyone strapped into a vehicle, Allison led the convoy of horsepower and speed out of Yankee Stadium and out towards Interstate 87, eventually merging onto Interstate 95 south. As they cruised at a stately 60 miles per hour, Allison got a call from her Cousin Tommy.

"Hello?" greeted Allison as she accepted the call. "Cousin Tommy, hey! Thanks again for the tickets and box seats! What's that? Q104.3? Ok... Uh-huh... All right, I'll let the others know."

Allison shut off her phone and picked up her walkie-talkie, communicating with the other cars. "Hey guys, I just got a call from Tommy. He says there's a special sendoff for us on 104.3 FM. Everybody tune to that station."

Petra tuned the station while Allison concentrated on the road.

"Good afternoooooon, ladies and gentlemen! This is V8 Charlie for Q104.3, New York's Classic Rock. It's drive time for some folks out there on this lovely summer day, and we already have a request from one Thomas McDonnell. He dedicates the following song to his cousin Allison and her friends as they embark on a cross-country road trip from New York to San Francisco, hitting up route Sixty-Six along the way. Wow! That's gonna be a hell of a trip! Well then Allison, if you and your friends are gonna travel the 'mother road,' you're gonna need to be safe, have fun, and have some good tunes. Without further ado, here's 'Highway Star' by Deep Purple."

Allison laughed as the opening riffs of the song started to play. "Ah, Tommy. He knows me way too well. Let's rumble, everybody!"

Allison put her foot down as the turbocharged 4-cylinder VTEC in the front roared to 9000 rpm and the tires chirped as she shifted up into the next gear, the first stanza of the song playing into the mid-afternoon sky. Petra held on for dear life despite being buckled in.

Nobody Gonna Take My Car, I'm Gonna Race It To The Ground
Nobody Gonna Beat My Car, It's Gonna Break The Speed Of Sound
Oooh It's A Killer Machine, It's Got Everything
Like A Driving Power, Big Fat Tires And Everything...

In the Ferrari, Kara programmed the destination in the SatNav, but turned off the voice directions since she would be following Allison out of the city and didn't want to hear the female voice constantly commenting that it was "Off Route. Recalculating."

Beside her, Claes removed a large book and set it into the glovebox. Behind Kara's seat on the parcel shelf was a bag with more books within easy reach.

Claes acknowledged Allison's call and tuned the radio to the desired station. Kara saw Allison's car hunker down and scoot ahead, so she pressed her right foot down hard and let the V12 sing.

With a giant foam finger on one hand, Laine popped into the GT-R and attempted to use the Sat-Nav.

"Who would import a car into the United States that doesn't speak English on it's GPS?" After fiddling a bit, she gave up and merely followed Kara out.

She revved the engine hard, then released the clutch, causing wheel spin and the cars next to her resound in a chorus of alarms.

"Shouldn't be so hard on that car." Clayland spoke over the radio.

"Nonsense, I'm testing reliability."

With more revs than necessary, she followed Kara and Allison onto the road.

Trailing behind the rest of the pack; Alpha was now behind the wheel as Liesel programmed the GPS on Alpha's PDA to Southgate, Michigan.

Hearing Allison's request come over their multi-frequency radio, Liesel switched off the Zen and tuned the station.

After the second stanza belted out over the stereo, Alpha couldn't help but glance over at Liesel for a moment with a smile. Looking back at him and listening to the lyrics, Liesel blushed a bit as she smiled herself.

With jetlag setting in, Jay propped his head against the corner and closed his eyes for a nap.

Not to be outdone by the others, Triela put her foot down as well in the Range Rover. She chuckled in a juvenile fashion as she heard the whine of the supercharger and the big SUV shot forward to keep pace with the supercars in front of her. A panicking Hilshire came over her radio.

"Triela, be careful! That Range Rover has a six-figure price tag!" admonished the German.

"Hilshire, I know what I'm doing, stop worrying." replied Triela.

In Clayland's Escalade, Hilshire pinched his nosebridge.

"Sometimes I wonder why I ever brought her to get her license..."

Being the second to last car on the line, though in familiar territory, Fernando notices that the cars in front of him are picking up speed. He presses down on the accelerator so that he could keep up with the group, keeping a whooping 75MPH on the speedo dial (at least for the moment this is what traffic allowed). If he knew exactly where everyone was going, he would stomp on the pedal to the floor and see how much of the 210 on the dial he can reach up to with a fully loaded Masserati. For now he has to be content with 4th gear at 2.5K rpm howling from the tuned exhaust, and doing "S"es along his lane to keep the tires warm.

A pack of super bikes howl past him and the group as if they were standing still, making Fernando curse out in frustration about the traffic.

"Petra, be a dear and hit the record button on the camera?" asked Allison over the howl of the wind.

"Sure." replied Petra, pressing a button as a flashing red light indicated it was recording.

"Now in a normal convertible," began Allison, her voice elevated, "the open road with the top down is lovely. This is more of a sports roadster, however, so at this speed, the wind can get a little harsh. It doesn't flow aerodynamically due to the post-war design of the Caterham. You would have an easier time tipping a cow sideways at this speed!"

Allison's eyes widened as she saw a Road Train up ahead. As they pulled alongside it, Allison had to put effort into keeping her voice calm, as if nothing was wrong.

"Fortunately, this car is still very light, so what it lacks in aerodynamics, it can make up for with power/weight ratio. I'm deathly afraid of lorries and semis, so I think I'm just gonna scoot past right now..."

Allison increased speed to 80, then 90 miles per hour as she wove through traffic, being careful to signal before changing lanes, though to other motorists, it looked like she was flashing the indicators quite rapidly, almost as if there was some sort of electrical problem. She backed down on the throttle once the semi truck and its cargo was well behind her.

Fernando gets Francesca to hold the two-way radio on transmit while he grabs the CB Mike, for all to hear.

Fernando: Breaker 1-4, Breaker 1-4. This here's Neptune and his mermaids on his rolling Trident. Anybody out there with a bear sighting?

For a second there was nothing but static, then the chatter kicked in.

Trucker 1: Hey Neptune in that Rolling Trident. In in that group of fancy imports filled with the mermaids?
Fernando: Who do you think the mermaids are?!!
Trucker 1: LOL! I see... Looks like one of your fishies just past me... As for bears, Only at the usual troll spots. You know you gots to pay that troll!
Trucker 2: Breaker 1-4, Breaker 1-4, this here's the Butcher in his rolling meat wagon. Where is Neptune heading?
Fernando: i-95 to i-280, west to that other coast before the sun rises again.
Trucker 2: Well, I just past an accident back that the interchange, so take it slow while switching. Bears are out there looking to raid Picnic Baskets! But after that, its all clear!
Fernando: Yo Butcher- that be a mighty 10-4!

Fernando drops the mike on his lap, then takes the radio from Francesca.

Fernando: Alright people, you heard the local bear report. Lets not feed the bears and keep on going!

Fernando puts down the radio, smiling when the other try to ask about the Bears...

Adeline zipped along with the other cyborgs, passing by their cars and moving with a nice pace to keep up with them. American speed limits were the main reason for such, but the fact that the R100 could put out enough power was also a part in her ability to keep pace with her comrades. Meanwhile, while she drove along, she spoke into an internal mounted microphone in her helmet that connected with her helmet mounted camera.

"There is nothing in the world like going on a road trip on a motorcycle. No car will give you the freedom and maneuverability one of these babies can do. Just watch."

Adeline twisted the throttle up and the bike gained RPM, subsequently gaining speed and running up alongside Allison and Petra in the Caterham.

"There's Ali and Petra, they're just making their easy little way. What they don't realize is that I'm about to make their ride absolute hell for 20 minutes. Watch and learn."

Adeline then sped up to get just ahead of the Caterham and moved into the lane in front of Allison and Petra. The German/Italian girl smiled, the game was afoot.

Meanwhile George watched what was going on from the support vehicle with Jay. He swallowed hard. Whatever his cyborg was doing he felt couldn't end well.

Allison watches as Adeline sweeps in front of herself and Petra. She gets the urge to curb-stomp the gas-pedal again, but quickly thinks better of it.

"No... I will remain calm... I will not succumb to the urge to race Adeline just because she thinks her silly little bike is better. I will take the high road. Think mature thoughts..." she says to herself as the camera continues to roll.


****TEN MINUTES LATER...****

"Watch out! People carrier!" shrieked Petra as Allison expertly swerved to avoid a Dodge Caravan traveling unhurried in front of them. Adeline was still ahead. The convoy had since entered Interstate 80 after 17 miles on Interstate 280 where Adeline continued to goad the owner of 'Catherine' and were now beginning to streak across Pennsylvania.

Allison, consumed by the red mist, was quickly snapped into responsible driving when the Radar detector on her dashboard signaled the presence of a police radar gun or a similar-frequency device. Up ahead, she saw taillights begin to glow, and she quickly backed down on the speed as Adeline streaked farther forward. As she noticed that Allison had backed off, the wail of a police siren pierced the air as a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor in Pennsylvania State Police Highway Patrol livery quickly singled her out and ordered her to pull over.

"Oh dear." said Allison with some worry in her voice. "Not even in Ohio yet, and already one of us has been nicked by the rozzers."

She then got on her radio to Clayland's Escalade. "Clayland, could you stay with Adeline and make sure she gets out of this okay? We'll meet you guys at the next rest stop."

Clayland complied over the radio.

"I suppose it was too much to ask for this to be a relaxing drive. Nothing like the sound of police sirens to say 'Welcome to America.' Yeah, I'll make sure everything works out right."

He secretly hoped Laine was unaware of his babysitting. This would be an opportunity she wouldn't let go.

*Meanwhile in the GT-R*

Laine was singing along to Frau Frau - Must Be Dreaming as she cruised along the highway. Moments later, she maneuvered to overtake a slow moving Minivan. With a grin she waved at the kids sitting in the back seat. The kids cheered as they saw the car spring past and flash it's hazards.

The aftermarket radar and LIDAR detectors on the Ferrari and Porsche had been connected to display on the SatNav, giving both Kara and Michele "bird's eye" views of the radar site as well as concealing the fact they were equipped with "defenses". Both drivers throttled down to the posted limit.

Adeline looked behind her to see the flashing lights of a Crown Victoria police cruiser behind her. "Ugh the damn polezei is after my ass." She quickly turned into the shoulder and waited on the side of the road, to which a white male police officer appeared off the side of the road. Adeline smiled as her mind came up with a plan.

"LIcense and registration please," the officer ordered calmly.

"Oh sir there must be some mistake. What am I being pulled over for?" she asked innocently.

"Excuse me?" the officer asked smartly. "YOu were swerving in between lanes and traffic. That's called reckless riding Ms..." the officer took a look at Adeline's license. "Melita, Miss Melita."

"Adeline Melita to you. I'm sorry but where I'm from riding like that isn't illegal."

"Well where are you from?" Adeline then put two fingers in her mouth and ran them down from her neck to a slightly exposed portion of her cleavage. The officer followed her fingers all the way down and his face grew as red as a tomato.

"Italy," she cooed seductively. "That's why I didn't know this was illegal."

"Well," the officer said slowly. "Since that seems to be the case, a warning for now. Don't do it again and yo'ure free to go." Adeline put her helmet back on and then started up the bike again. With one quick revving of the throttle she was gone, far away from the officer and catching back up to the rest of the riders.

Meanwhile, at a rest stop roughly 5 miles down the road, Allison had finished topping off 'Catherine's' fuel tank while Petra went to the food services area and came back out with some Auntie Anne's Soft Cinnamon Pretzels for herself and Allison. The others were also taking a break, Refueling their vehicles, stretching their legs, getting snacks and drinks, or making a pit stop in the bathroom.

"How much longer till we get to Southgate?" asked Triela, taking a pull from a bottle of Coca-Cola.

"At our current pace, we'll make it to Cleveland, Ohio by nightfall. We're all gonna need some rest despite our stamina; this trip is for pleasure and relaxation, and I think our handlers would appreciate a proper night's sleep." said Allison. "Kara suggested the Hyatt-Regency at the Arcade in Downtown Cleveland. That's within our budget, so that's where we're stopping tonight."

Just then, Adeline pulled in on her R100. She looked at Allison in a rather annoyed fashion.

"Adeline, I'm really sorry about that. I didn't have enough time to get on the radio and tell you about the speed trap. I probably would've lost anyway. Since you're probably raring for a rematch, though, I suggest we wait until we're further out west, on Route 66. Plenty of open space there, and there shouldn't be as many rozzers around. How about it?"
