'Well, what are you waiting for? Take us there!'
sea cried.

The cat's grin got wider.

'You'll have to do something for me first. I promise, it'll only take a second...'

sea was not amused.

'Oh, no, cat. You'll have to tell me what it is before I'll commit to help you.'

'I'm sorry, baby, it doesn't work that way. Yes or no,'
said the cat.

'Yo is waiting...'

sea seethed for a moment.

'Let me confer with my associates,'
she said.

Marv and Gw7en exchanged glances, then moved away from the cat to hear what sea had to


'WHAT travel capabilities, old man?'
Yo was not amused.

'Oh, you know, the standard travel-sizing function. Vortex collapses to about the size of a briefcase. You'll have to put a new piece of fairy cake in afterwards, though. Haven't quite worked out how to protect it from squashing... Maybe some sort of anti-matter device...'
the old man muttered to himself.

Yo jumped to his feet.

'For the gods' sakes, show me how to do it before Shazz gets back, you crazy old fool!'

'Too late,'
said Shazz from behind him.

sea, apparently, was in no mood for games.

'All right, you two. On my signal, Gw7en, you scream to distract the cat. I'll push it back in the trunk. Marv, you jump in the driver's seat and find a convenient cliff to drive the car over. Be careful.'

They nodded solemnly and turned back to the cat.

'So, furball, what happens if I refuse to help you?'
sea asked.

The cat's grin turned cold.

'I'll eat you alive.'

sea arched an eyebrow.

'Well, I'll have to give you points for originality. But alas... Gw7en! Now!'

Gw7en screamed.
