The casino was full of loud, drunken revelers, save for one slim blonde. Men had approached; most left after looking in her eyes. One left with a broken hand. She suddenly sat up. There he was, striding across the casino.

Soolin followed, eyes glued to Cevedic. She gave little notice to the middle aged man with a drink in each hand, moving towards a young, dark skinned girl. There was a collision. Soolin shouldered the man aside and hurried away.

“Justin, are you all right?”

Justin shrugged. “Fine, Dayna, wait here while I clean up.”

Dayna’s eyes were attracted to a flash of gun metal. She looked to the retreating Justin, smiled, and followed the blonde.

The streets were dark. There was no sign of the blonde, but the large man was easy to spot. Dayna followed him to a tavern. She couldn’t legally enter, so she crept towards a window. The man stood at the bar with his arms around two women.

Dayna started at a female voice in her ear.

“You’re armed.”

Dayna started to turn. “Of course.”

“So am I, so don’t turn around. Why are you following me?”

Dayna caught a glimpse of long blonde hair. “I saw your gun. It’s a variation of a Koser assault pistol, isn’t it? I’m into guns.”

The blonde stepped back into deeper darkness. “Aren’t you a little young for guns, or casinos, or that man?”

Dayna grinned. “You mean Justin? He’s my teacher.”

“And he’s teaching you to drink in a casino? I said don’t turn around.”

Dayna spoke to the window. “Father would be furious, but Justin promised me this trip if I did good at the science fair on Albion. Really, we’re just friends.”

There came a laugh in the dark. “You may know guns, but you don’t know men.”

Two women hurried noisily from the tavern. A blonde in a dark dress cried, “The same to you!”

Her companion called, “We've got news for you. We don't want to come back anyway!”

They turned and came face to face with the armed blonde and the young black girl. For a moment, eyes met, and then a male voice called, “Jenna, Cally, over here.”

Soolin looked through the window. “Damn, he’s gone.” She hurried into the darkness.

Later

Soolin stalked the alley, her weapon ready. A dark form lay crumpled on the ground like yesterday’s rubbish. Cevedic was dead. Soolin hissed, “Damn it, that may serve justice, but not revenge.”

There was a gasp in the dark. “You killed him.”

Soolin did not turn around. “No, but I meant to. He was with a group of assassins that killed my parents.”

The young girl’s voice held a dark edge. “Then I wish you had killed him. I can’t imagine if someone killed my father and I couldn’t take revenge.”

Soolin walked away. “Maybe you should get back to your father.”

“Maybe you’re right. I didn’t catch your name.”

“Nor I yours, let’s keep it that way. I’ve a feeling if we meet again, there will be blood.”

Brad - Oh haha, it looks like we posted exactly the same time by the timestamp.

What an interesting take on the encounter - and it sets a precedent for something Dayna and Soolin both have in common, which I really like!

That's a very clever story Brad. I really like the fact it isn't timey whimey but makes perfect canon sense. Terrific characterisation. You really know Blakes 7 !!!

Of course! Depending on its length (how far over 700 words is it?) I may not be include to include it in the collection afterwards, but we'd all love to read it here.

(As a challenge and an exercise, why not experiment with trying to lose 200 words? It's not easy (which is why it's a challenge! ), but good practise. My February ficlet 'Heroes' originally ran to about 700 words, and I sweated bullets cutting it down to 500. But as a result, the story is actually more focussed, though I've kept the early draft in case I want to write a longer version in the future.)

566 words. Went back and slaved but can't shed Anymore . Sorry!

Serous' reputation as Vila observed rather too often, belied its name in that there was absolutely nothing serious about it. The planet was a Mecca for anyone seeking exorbitantly priced spa treatments in luxurious surroundings. Blake had agreed the crew could visit solely because Orac had listed it as a possible hide out for Docholli. Actually Avon had instructed It to tell him this (tempting It with the prospect of research into the jacuzzi phenomenon) but not even Jenna and Cally were prepared to snitch; the prospect of a full body wax, pedicure and hair restyle was too enticing. Vila had already booked the chocolate wrap experience while Avon was considering the tattooed lip and eye liner treatment as well as the hot stones massage.

Jenna and Cally teleported down to the planet. Blake normally insisted on going down first but he had pulled a muscle so while Vila was administering to him with the tissue regenerator, the girls had gone ahead - ostensibly to seek information about Docholli but really to locate the beauty spa they had booked into.

Hardly had they disappeared when Avon, idly adjusting a damaged bracelet while indulging in a dream of proper food, decent wine and firm hands, was startled by a cry of, "Teleport. Now!" The girls arrived in the bay, guns out, and even to Avon's less than perceptive eye, Cally seemed unduly upset. Jenna had immediately made for the flight deck at a run and before there could be any argument ordered Zen to take them out of orbit.

Later they explained that as they landed they found themselves facing two girls who had drawn a gun on them and had heard one cry out, "Cally, you're dead!" Who the girls were, or how they had recognised Cally was a bit of a mystery but neither she nor Jenna had thought it prudent to hang about Serous when the Liberator presence had so clearly been detected.

xxx
The journey to Betafarl took them within a thousand spacials of Serous and Vila, cashing in on Avon's treachery on the shuttle, demanded that they make a detour for some R and R. Wracked with guilt, or more probably unable to resist the opportunity for fine dining and firm massage, Avon had agreed. Scorpio entered orbit around Serous and Dayna and Soolin teleported down for a recce. They returned some 15 minutes later, Dayna pale and shaking, Soolin's normally unruffled composure disturbed.

"Get us away from here, " Dayna demanded the moment her form solidified on deck. "Now, Avon. I mean it," she shrilled as he hesitated. "It's a ghost planet. I saw... I saw...it was Cally and another woman. I called out,"Cally you're dead" but she just vanished. Get us away."

He didn't really believe her, but Avon was sufficiently rattled by the thought of a vengeful, haunting Cally to give the order without demur. Vila, Tarrant and Soolin raised no complaints. They all had too many deaths at their doors to risk a planet full of ghosts.

+Human creatures are irrational+ Orac reflected smugly as he analysed the power surge that had caused the temporal teleport displacement He felt even more justified in his decision to free himself from them through the scenario he had styled 'The Gauda Prime End Game"

I know the feeling well. I have often been left with a highly edited rapid fire 'Hard Boiled Detective Novel' style... but that fits B7, don't you think?

Nice story. A ghost Planet, but who are the ghosts.....
 
Anniew
I guess Deeta, Dr Plaxton, Bayban, Anna, would be the ghosts they feared to see. Justin and Pella. Dorian ( there's a scary thought) I guess their families back home might have been killed when Avon and Vila were arrested and when Tarrant deserted. But it's actually timey whimey. No ghosts just a temporal teleport displacement!

And yes the hard boiled detective style suits the series very well. I have always found your pieces narratively complex , extremely well characterised and without any padding.

Good luck! And even if you can't manage it, you're free to post slightly overlong stories on the forum thread.
