Default Murder on the High Seas

The SM's remember the FTF5 Novel penned by me and Benning. It was possibly the most fun I've had here as it just flowed with no collaboration between the two of us. It also birthed one of the most referred to characters in FTF history: Tangoliscious, the Pixie Love Fairy.

In this episode, Tangoliscious meets his demise. It is up to you to figure out which member of the FTF5 is responsible. The story to follow soon. Pay attention to details and activities. Ask questions and they will be answered or not.

Set yourselves for a cruise not on The Love Boat, but on The Murder Boat.

The FTF5 had planned this trip for months. To get back on a cruise ship and just to be able to enjoy the trip. No mission, no responsibilities, no memories of the nudist camp or the ghey cruise that had haunted each of them for months. Relax and just take in the bikinis and the sun was on the mind of each of them.

Robo got there early, knowing that someone had to lead the way. He spotted each team member as they arrived. He stood well above the rest of the boarders, so ground level was good for him. He waived to each of them as they were dropped off by their better halves. Jack, Francisco, JD and Goju each saw Robo as they were approaching the gangplank and waived accordingly. All five of them were nearly giddy with the thought of the relaxing week ahead. Still, none of them let their guards down enough to not notice the other passengers and size them for threat.

The other four team members met Robo at the same time. There were handshakes, man hugs and smiles across the board. None had any contact with the the others since the end of that nighmare of a mission that "I." had put them through.

"Let's get to crusing," Robo suggested. "I have a surprise for you all."

Robo led the way to the ship with the baddest vacationing crew in tow.

The group followed Robo toward the ship in single file. Once aboard, the Customs Agents put a halt to the caravan of badness.

"Sir, you need to step over here, please!" Porter Benning said loudly targeting Robo.

"No need," Robo announced while flashing his badge covertly in the direction of Porter Benning.

Recognizing the power of the badge, Porter Benning approached the FTF5 with a warm smile.

"Sorry, sir. I knew you guys were on this cruise, but having not met you..."

Robo stopped Porter Benning short.

"No biggie. We are clean and ready to board. Just point us in the right direction since I doubt that he wants to walk a mile or two." He pointed at JD.

Porter Benning gave a two-fingered point toward the escalators. "All of you have your own suites just above the common cabins. Here are your keys." Porter Benning handed each of the FTF5 their own coded key cards. "The rooms are up to you, but I can tell you that whomever gets suite 1166 might want to trade."

Just then, there was a commotion on the plank. Everyone turned to see what was happening. There they saw a familiar figure, but dressed in normal street clothes. The man was bumping into people, pushing them aside while shouting, "Move along you effers! I have a pass. Get out of my way, douches!"

Jack turned and met eyes with Robo.

"Tell me that is the surprise." He asserted.

The rest of the team fixed their gaze away from the hubaloo and locked on Robo.

"Yes, my brethren. It is time we get even. I don't care who or how, but this gal had better not make it home." Robo was solemn.

They all nodded and knew what had to be done. Ignoring the rest of Tangoliscious' melee up the ramp, the team turned in unison and made their way to their respective quarters with a heightened gait.

The Pixie Love Fairy continued to bully its way to the ship.

"Hey, stupid. Move your fat arse," and "out of the way you effin douche" were the most commonly used phrases instead of "excuse me" or "pardon." As strong as those commands were, they lost a bit when shouted with a heavy lisp.

Porter Benning signaled over to security. Chief Gatekeeper strode to Benning's side.

"Look at this. What the hell?" Porter Benning offered.

"I don't want to touch that, but I have to." Chief Gatekeeper asserted.

They both stopped Tangoliscious as he stepped aboard. The look of disdain was easy to read on the pixie's face.

"Hey, look. It's Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber." Tangoliscious sprayed in the two's directon.

"Sir, you need to stop this right now." Chief Gatekeeper was getting more than a little pissed. "Step over here and I need to see your ticket and passport." He commanded.

Sensing noncompliance, both Benning and Gatekeeper each took an arm and carried the kicking and complaining Pixie off to the side. Reluctanly, Tangoliscious handed a manila folder over to Gatekeeper. The Chief pumped the contents onto a desk.

There was a passport, an envelope with a Texas return address containing a ticket, and several Western Union reciepts. Gatekeeper looked them over. He noticed the money transfers came from Argentina, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Washington. Each were for several hundred dollars. The Chief also noted that several needles and insulin bottles were among the contents.

Tangoliscious spoke up, "Are you two brutes gonna rob me? I will be reporting both of you to the Captain for harassment. Sexual harassment at that."

"Let him go, Chief before I snap his neck right here," Porter Benning did not want any more trouble.

"But, ok. I will hold her while you...nevermind." The Chief felt the same as Benning. "Get out of here while you still can. Your ticket has you in room 1066. Up those stairs and to the right. No more trouble out of you."

Tangoliscious knew it was time to get away from the duo. He whistled a show tune as he sacheted toward the stairs. "You have not seen anything yet," he thought to himself.

The FTF5 reached their floor all giddy with the prospect of being the one to take out Tangoliscious, the Pixie Love Fairy. They had nearly taken him out several times on the ghey cruise they had to endure so long ago. It seemed that this kitty really did have nine lives.

"Let's rondez-vous in one hour in the casino." Robo suggested. "Get some rest and freshen up. We need to be on our game today so we can enjoy the rest of the cruise." All the members nodded and retired to their cabins with murder on their minds.

Meanwhile, Tangoliscious made it to his suite. It was lavish, but not quite what he expected. He decided to take it easy and relax with some music. he quickly got his newest Streisand cd playing and loudly at that. It could be heard by several cabins around him. He unpacked his tutu outfit and dressed. His basket of fairy love dust included. After dancing and singing along to Babs for nearly an hour, he set out to spread his brand of happiness. Skipping and sprinkling was his motto.

Annoying most of the cruise patrons along the way, he entered the casino. Up and down the aisles of slots, around the blackjack tables and through the poker room. Skipping, singing and tossing pixie dust. The outfit setoff the strange sight. Pink tutu, lime green tights, baby blue spandex tee complete with the white wings. He was starting to tire out and getting near dinner time, he made his way back to his suite to rest with all five FTF crew members in separate but stealthy tow.

There was a note from the Captain inviting him to sit at the Captain's table for dinner. He was excited and let out a loud squeal. He opted to rest a while before dinner, so he could be on his fairyiest game then.

The Captain arrived at his table. Five of the six seats were alreay full. The FTF5 members had each gotten an invitation and responded accordingly in full tux dinner dress. The Captian announced that they were waiting on the sixth guest for dinner to start.

Twenty minutes passed and Tangoliscious was still absent. The Captain rose from his seat and took up a locked phone behind the bar.

"Grab the Chief and meet me in the dining room, immediately." He ordered rather loudly.

Within two minutes, Porter Benning and Chief Gatekeeper arrived and had a quick chat with the Captain. They both turned and exited.

The Captain returned to his table and filled in the other guests that he had sent some people to check on the last guest. The whole dining room began to get abuzz with chatter. Hungry and antsy cruisers were getting impatient. The FTF5 members sat idly, only sharing glances and small shrugs.

Ten minutes later, the bartender approached the Captain and wispered in his ear. The Captain rose and walked over to the phone. "Yes, what is it?"

"Sir, you had better come up here. I've already called Doctor Lon. This guest is dead."

The Captain and Dr. Lon got to the Fairy's suite at the same time. They entered cautiously.

"There's some blood on the bed, but no sign of a stuggle. I'd say a stab wound by someone he knows," Gatekeeper spoke up. "I do know that he came on board with a bunch of cash, but it is nowhere to be found, sir."

The Captain nodded, "Thanks, Chief."

"Let me decide, I am the Doctor." Lon was just a bit irritated and hungry.

"I took a bunch of photos and Porter Benning went after a gurney to take the body to the infirmary. I can tell you that I have been getting calls all day about this character. Everyone complaining about noise and a tutu wearing weirdo tossing sprinkles all over the place. Just so you all know." Chief Gatekeeper had trouble hiding his excitement about the problem being taken care of.

Doctor Lon was not paying attention, as he was examining the body carefully. It did not take long for him to realize the cause of death.

"This Pixie Love Fairy has been stabbed, punched and kicked. Maybe even shot once. But, that is not what killed him. I will know more once I can run some basic tests in the lab. This person has been poisoned. Definately murder."

Ok, it is up to you all as to who did it and how.

I will be away for a bit as I need to get some work done. I won't be very long, but be patient. One thing I've found out is that I run out of gas at the exact same time the trimmer does.

You have several suspects and no love for The Pixie Love Fairy. You have several murder attempts as per the damage to the body. Doctor Lon is confident that poison is the actual demise. Who stabbed, punched, kicked and shot Tangoliscious? Who poisoned him and how?
