Part 2 of Escape from the Empire (A Kate and Kip Adventure)
In our last episode, Kate and Kip were trying to escape from a space station crawling with Imperial soldiers. They managed to evade detection and take out four legionnaires. Their victory opened the path to the docking bay.
When Kip opened the door to the docking bay, an alarm began blaring. Kip looked sheepishly at Kate and shrugged his shoulders. She rolled her eyes at him. "Check next time." she grumbled at him.
They could hear the pounding of footsteps coming from the corridors entering the bay. Imperial soldiers came rushing forward.
Kate and Kip advanced into the bay. Kip rounded a corner and blasted one of the oncoming legionnaires.
Suddenly the air was filled with the pew-pew-pew sound of a repeating laser spewing out energy bolts at a high rate. One soldier was firing from around a corner. One bolt struck Kate in the leg.
Kate and Kip dove for cover behind storage containers that were laying about the bay. The legionnaires poured a steady fire at them, but missed.
Our heroes peeked out of cover and blasted the soldiers.
They rushed forward toward their ship. Kip noticed an Imperial officer hiding behind a corner. Her pistol was leveled at him. Before she could pull the trigger, Kip unleashed a barrage of shots. They struck the officer in the chest. She spun and fell to the floor.
They had blasted their way free! There were no more Imperials between them and their ship.
