“Hmm… you ever think you may have a few too many guns?”
Bill made his way to the front of the shuttle. “Oh, come on boss, a guy as smart as you should realize you can never have too many slug throwers.”
Beat, I went to the front of the shuttle and started it up. I heard the clank of the docking clamps that attached the shuttle to [i]Liberty[/i] disengaging. I pulled up on the yoke, and we were airborne.
“Uh, boss,” Bill chimed, “care to explain why we’re flying away from the city and over the water?”
“Come on Bill,” I said jokingly, “a guy as smart as you should realize I don’t much care for land.” I let go of the yoke, and the shuttle dropped about five feet to do a belly-flop on the water.
It threw Bill out of his seat. “You call that a landing?”
“Well that’s what happens when you don’t wear your seatbelt.”
