Around the corner at the end of the hallway was a lone alien guard. He was short and green skinned, and his skull stretched back in a spiky fringe. He carried two laser pistols, which he directed at Ean and JD as soon as they came into view.
Then Sakura knocked him out from behind.
Ean stared at Sakura in what I would call undisguised admiration, and not necessarily for her stealthiness. He snorted at my comment. I love ninjas, he explained to you, disguising it as an aside to JD.
Sakura grinned at the fallen guard. <I love being a ninja,> she commented cheerfully.
Yeah, JD said to Ean. Well I love laser pistols. He quickly looted the alien guard and turned back to Ean. Apparently JD agreed with me, because he said: Drool over the girl later, E. It’s time for me to kick some alien ass, now.
