Chapter 5
Exiles

Tobias walked in front of Gladdy and Bo Bo, pulling on a chain linked to their handcuffs. He brought them outside to the steps of the Hall of Justice. Officer Sunshinegirl was there waiting with a piece of parchement flying next to her and a scroll in hand. She held out the scroll to Tobias who quickly read it and signed at the bottom.

“All right everything looks in order, they're all yours. Have a good day.”

Tobias then gave her the chain and went back into the building. Sunny started walking, pulling the two prisoners along. When they were far enough from the courtroom, Gladdy was about to say something, but Sunny stopped her.

“Before either of you say anything, I need to let you know that the last and only right you have is to choose which gate you get to leave the city from. Be careful, the flying parchement next to me will write down the first gate that you say and you must exit by that gate.” She started tearing up “Now c'mere” She pulled Gladdy into a tight hug. Gladdy hugged back and starte to cry too.

As they broke their embrace, Bo Bo raised his arms for a hug, but Sunny and Gladdy just started walking away.  

“Here Gladdy” Sunny reached deep into a small looking pouch on her belt, rummaged around and pulled out a regula sized backpack. “When I heard what was going on, I went ahead and grabbed some supplies for you. I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of going to your home and packed what I could too.”

Gladdy started to tear up a little again and hugged her. “Thanks Sunny.”

“Oh and here Bo Bo, I received this from M'Lady Hellokittykat by hawk courrier this morning” she reached back into the pouch and pulled out a letter. He took it and read the letter.

“So Gladdy, any thought on which gate you'll take? Remember don't say it until you're sure though”

“Well I do have family in the southern regions, and some friends far in the west.What do you think?”

“I think south. The west used to be good but all those trolls and other nasties now, it's just not safe....”

Bo Bo interrupted them “I've decided, I'll go out the West Gate!”

“The west gate!?!” Gladdy and Sunny said in surprise!

Gladdy covered her mouth with her hands, realizing what she just did. The words “west gate” wrote themselves on the flying scroll next to their names. It rolled up and vanished.

“DAMMIT BO BO!” Gladdy yelled and gave him a slap to the back of the head.

“Ow... ow.....head still hurts!”

“Like I care!” and slapped him again.

“Stop it, maybe officer Sunshinegirl can do something”. The officer gibb slapped Bo.

 Gladdy hit him one last time for good measure and looked at Sunny.

“I'm so sorry Gladdy, there's nothing I can do, it's out of my hands. I have to bring you to the west gate and... and... see to it that you leave the forum”. Sunshingirl could barely say the last part as she was holding back tears.

All three of them walked to the gate in silence. Once they arrived, the gate opened, Gladiara_Alata and Bo Bo turned and took one last look at the Capital and walked through the gate. Once they were a few yards away from the gate, Sunny unlocked their cuffs.

“This is as far as I go. Officially, you have to stay well away from the forum-city, but really as long as you stay out of view from the guardtowers, they usually leave you alone.”

“Thanks Officer, don't worry about us though, we'll be fine, I have a plan!” Bo Bo said with confidence.

“Oh lord.” Gladdy rolled her eyes. “and I should trust you because you've shown such great judgement until now...”

“Well....”

“If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be in this mess to begin with!”

“I know but....”

“In fact, if I didn't try to save your sorry arse, I would finally be rid of you!”

“HEY! One, that was harsh, maybe deserved, but still harsh. Two, this plan will work because Master Kitty-One told me what to do in the letter, see” he pointed at the the letter.

“hmpf. Still hate you” Gladdy muttered.

“Well I feel a little better knowing m'lady Hellokittykat left instructions. I have to get going now Gladdygirl. C'mere for one last hug” After a brief hug, Sunny looked at Bo “Now you take care. And if I hear that you've done Gladdy anymore wrong...” she looked at him sternly and tapped her police issued wand for emphasis.

“Yes ma'am!!! Don't worry ma'am!”

With that, officer Sunshinegirl walked back into the city and the gates closed behind her.

“Nice day today, shall we get going?” Bo Bo said almost cheerfully. “Master Kitty-One said we should head for the De-Stressing thread. Wait for more info over there.”

“Yeah you would say that, let me see that letter, before you drag me there just so you can see Beetlebum.” She snatched the letter and read it. “Alright, so which way?”

“See I told you. This way down the main road, we should hurry a bit to get there before dark, but first ...”

They walked a few meters away from the road, clearly out of view from the city's guard towers. Bo Bo looked aroud the trees for a moment, then walked straight to a bush. Gladdy just looked at him with suspicion and confusion. He ignored her, looked around making sure no one else was looking and flipped it open. He took a backpack from a hidden compartment.

“Ok all set. Master Kitty-One had me set a few of these up around in case we ever run into emergencies and I think this counts.” He shouldered the backpack, and they headed back to the main road to start their trek.

The walk towards the De-stressing thread was uneventful. After an hour from their meal break, they were deep in the West Woods.

“Are we there yet? How much longer”

“Oh, it's few more hours. We should be there around suns....”

Before he could finish talking a short blond lady was standing in the middle of the road with a surgeons mask covering her face. She had two guns pointed straight at the exiles.

“Stay right there! Give me your backpacks and you can go on and no one will get hurt!”

Bo Bo whispered to Gladdy “maybe we should try to run for it”

“I wouldn't do that if I were you. My girlfriend would stop you before you could take a step”

“What girlfriend?” Bo asked looking around “there's no one else.”

Gladdy tugged on his sleeve “Ummm take another look behind you”

He looked back and there was a ninja standing there.

“Where the hell did she come from!?”

“Shut up. Give the dork the bags.” the ninja said in a way that the two knew she wouldn't ask twice.

“KKRrrriiiissss..... I told you not to call me that in front of the people we rob”

The ninja just rolled her eyes. “Give the all-wonderful Dominator your bags”

“Much better!” the blonde bandit walked around Gladdy and Bo Bo and gave her girlfriend a kiss.

While they seemed pre-occupied, Bo Bo nudged Gladdy and they tried and slowly walk away. However, before they took two steps, Ninja Kris appeared in front of them.

“Bad idea.” she said as she pointed a rather sharp looking knife at them.

They slowly walked back until they bumped against a large tree with Bree and Kris in front of them, threatening them.

“No more tricks. Give us all your valuables” Kris said.

Bree was holding up her guns, but then she got curious about something. She walked towards Bo Bo, guns firmly pointed at him. When she got close to him, she tilted her head and examined his face.

“Do I know you?”

“Ummmmm...... I d.... don't think we've met” he managed to say.

“Hmmmmm.... I know I know you from somewhere....” she placed a gun close next to his face as she looked on. Bo Bo's eyes went wide, and the look of fear was clearly visible on his face.

“That's it, now I know how I recognize you! You're on the official Hellokittykat poster!”

“Oh well, yeah.... I am her apprentice after all!”

“Really?! You're Boo Boo?” Bree let her guns down and started to get excited. “You're not lying to me are you?” she pointed a gun back to Bo Bo's face.

“No! I swear, I'm her apprentice! That's why I'm on a lot of the posters and stuff like that! And it's Bo Bo by the way...”

“Oh wow! I'm like her biggest fan! I mean, she's just great! She's so beautiful and caring and kickass and beautiful.....”

“Ummmm yeah she is!”

“I have like all her posters and action figures. I also have the official Hellokittykat vi.... ummm never mind. I read her profile in the last YABS Girls Gone Mild Issue! So tell me is it true that her legs are 36 inches long?” Bree asked.

“Actually it's 38 that was a typo in the article”

Bree just let out a small sigh and Kris just rolled her eyes.

“How would you know” Gladdy asked Bo looking at him suspiciously.

“What? I am her apprentice. I have to go with her when she goes for her armour fittings.”

“Uh huh...” Gladdy still had some doubts about how he knew.

Bree just got more excited after hearing this.“Really! With her during her fittings? So you mean.... well what about the umm... other stats?”

“Oh man, well I had to put down the order for her chestplate and let me tell you...” Bo was interrupted by Gladdy as she gave him a jab to his side. She gave him a stern look and he kept quiet, but his description didn't go unnoticed and Bree had a dreamy look in her eyes.

“I... ummmm.... Kris..... I need your help in checking something out... I have an itch and I think it may be a ummm...a rash or something..... You two stay here so we can rob you later” she then grabbed Kris by the arm and pulled her urgently towards the privacy of some bushes off the road.

Bo started walking in their direction, but Gladdy held him by the arm and stopped him.

“Oy where do you think you're going!”

“I uhhh... wanted to see and make sure everything was alright... yeah.... that's it....”

“God...” she slapped him behind the head. “Grab your pack and let's get the hell out of here!”

They quickly grabbed their bags and rushed down the road towards the De-Stressing thread.
