>>41563391>Wade squats himself down as he pulls out his communication device. Small, durable, and travel friendly. Equestria didn't excel at technology but they did have friends in high places. One of the benefits of their free range agriculture. Lots of nations willing to pay a pretty penny for a consistent supply of fresh produce. A random thought that passed his brain as he held it up to his ear.
Alright Wade. Big Dick mode, Big Dick mode.
>He hypes himself up as he waits for the other end to pick up.
Yeah it's me. There's been some developments. Well it's about time you called in, you should have arrived at Holwheet hours ago.
Yeah I did I just haven't had time to call in. Well what could be so important that you couldn't call in?
An Atlus invasion WHAT!? Atlus shouldn't even be near the capital for at least another few weeks.
Yeah remind me to give our Intel guy a stern talking to. Look, I've already made use of the ship. There's a handful of refugees on the way to the rendevue point. Ok, ok....ok. so you're already on your way back?
I'm still in Holwheet. There were way to many refugees then the ship could fit. The ship could hold fifty. Just how many more were there to justify you staying?
>The line goes silent for a few secondsSo what is the situation? Certainly you're not planning on staying there for a solid month to rally them all back. We could send a larger ship.
There's no time. Atlus will be breathing down our necks in just over 3 hours. Well you better have a plan in that utility belt. You know what will happen if they catch you. Equestria will deny your existence.
I know that. I have it covered. We've already secured additional transport. If all goes well we should all arrive in Equestria sometime in the next 5 hours. That's not a very wide window. What exactly are you planning to do?
Turns out Holwheet's been holding other secrets as well. There's a few experimental stealth cruisers in a hidden airport just outside the city. They're large enough that two will be enough to carry the rest back.Then why send the ship back if they're going to arrive well after the cruisers?
Because if this goes south I wanted to make sure this wasn't a total bust. Even if this fails some of them can at least make it. Mostly the younger ones and the ones who couldn't move on their own. Well that's...something. And how exactly did you learn about the cruisers?
Ambassador Panera.I assume that means you've managed to extract her as she requested?
Funny thing about that. She never intended on coming along at all. Apparently she just used that to make her letter more believable.That's.......*sigh* so what is the ambassador's status?
She's coming. Had to practialy drag her along but she's on her way to the transport now. You didn't-
No, I didn't lay a hand on her. But I can be persuasive when I want to be.Very well. Anything else to report?
I blew up a breeding center.IS THERE A PART OF YOUR BRAIN THAT CAN'T COMPREHEND THE CONCEPT OF STEALTH!?
It wasn't my idea. The underground movement was going to do it anyway. For the love of.....*sigh* Sweet Celestia. Were there any casualties?
None permanentWhat is THAT supposed to mean?
I dunno apparently these people have some kinda respawn thing doing as their "mother units" are alive. Look it was either that or leave the ponies inside behind. And I needed these ponies to trust me or i wouldn't have made it this far. And besides now Atlus can't use it to further exploit our people.I'm still not happy you did it but....you have a point. Anything else to report?
I don't know how valid it will be tommorow, but Panera has handed me an interesting document. The higher ups of this nation have voted to abolish the slave trade permanently. It even includes an official declaration of aide in any pursuits against such acts. We'll need to look over that once you get back. Make sure you don't lose it. You know how sceptical we all are about this Operation.
Trust me, I know. I'm going to head out and help them load up the cruisers. I'll report back if anything changes. Just be sure you have a landing strip set up for when we get there.Affirmative. Good luck out there.
>Wade doesn't even have to end the call. The line goes dead the second the pony on the other end finished their sentence.
>"Good luck". The words stewed on Wade's mind as he straightens his posture. He was expecting this to be a lot harder. But it seems all he's had since getting here is good luck. Was he not as rusty as he thought? Or was god just smiling on him for once in his life? Either way it was a good way to keep him on his toes.
