Meanwhile, somewhere above the Planet's surface, alarm bells were ringing aboard the Ruined Wily Star (which is stil undergoing renovation). Zakura growled a slammed a fist onto her alarm clock, silencing it's protests, but not the protests of the actual alarm bells, which continued to ring despite having just been witness to Zakura's fondness for bell-motivated violence. Mumbling a string of several choice words, she dragged herself out of bed and shuffled off towards the control-room.
Ky was intrigued. It wasn't often that the planetside alarm systems activated, and despite his irritation at having his sleep interrupted he felt that this development was worth the hassle. So absorbed was he in studying the monitors that he never noticed the bleary-eyed Zakura enter the control-room. In fact, he never noticed her presence until she slammed his face onto the monitor he was studying. Taking the hint, he silenced the alarms and sat up rubbing his nose.
"Ow! Oh, hey. Mornin'"
"Don't give me that civil [parasitic bomb], s'too early. Why all the noise?"
"Ah. That. According to the sensors, there's a spacial disturbance somewhere in the vicinity of Borockman's Pagoda."
Zakura responded with a blank stare. Ky slapped a palm against his face, sighed, and tried again.
"There's someone at the ping-pong place who doesn't belong there."
"Get dressed. We're going down there to take a look."
And so it was that a few minutes later Ky and a barely-awake Zakura arrived on Borock's Ping Pong Pagoda through the magic of conveniently placed plotholes.
