Week 21.2 – The Party Plane

Previously: Cole told Digger that their sponsor had credited Digger assisting in taking down a robot, which carries a cash prize. And now…

“Okay, you want the truth? Truth is, you got credit for downing it and I only got credit for the assist,” Cole said. “So I give you clothes and a trip to Mongolia, and you sign your share over to me.”

“How much money are we talking about?” Digger asked.

“The money doesn’t matter,” Cole said. “What matters is, I don’t assist. You sign over to me, I get full credit for the takedown.”

“So this is an ego deal.”

“This is an ‘I’m offering you help, take it or leave it’ deal.”

“I’ll take it,” Digger said. “Thanks.”

“Don’t mention it,” Cole said.

Twenty minutes later, they were driving toward a large private hangar. “Listen, there are a few things we’ll need to discuss once we’re in the air,” Metalord said. “But for the most part, you can just sit back and enjoy the trip. I’ll handle the heavy lifting. I’ll get us into China, I’ll negotiate with the Czar. All you do is point out this Twain guy if you see him and I’ll handle the rest.”

“Out of the goodness of your heart,” Digger said.

“And the publicity I’ll get for being the only guy to stare down the Czar solo.”

“You think you can?” Digger asked.

It’s a mutual respect thing. Come on, I want you to meet the girls.”

“The girls” were just getting out of the Escalade as Digger opened the passenger side door of the Porsche. One was a tall, slim brunette and the other, a shorter blonde with ample curves that reminded Digger of Marilyn Monroe. “Digger, I’d like you to meet Tiffany and Amanda.”

“Hey,” Amanda said with a little wave and a bit of Southern twang in her voice. Her dimpled smile was gorgeous.

“We’ll grab our bags and meet you on the plane,” said Tiffany, the brunette, to Cole.

As he and Cole walked toward the hangar, Digger asked, “What’s going on? Who are they?”

“Flight attendants,” Cole said.

“Flight attendants?” Digger repeated skeptically. “They look more like models.”

“Yes, they’re very hot flght attendants,” Cole said. “Is that a problem?”

“Well, this is not exactly a vacation,” Digger said. “What kind of trip do they think we’re taking?”

“The kind where we’re flying halfway around the world, and I don’t want to get bored,” Cole said. “Don’t worry. I’m not asking you to pitch in on the bill.”

“I’m not worried about the bill. I’m worried about their safety,” Digger said.

“”Look, it’s not a thing,” Cole said. “We’ll drop them off in Shanghai, they’ll do some shopping while we’re gone. It’ll be fine.”

“But why do we need flight attendants anyway?” Digger asked. “I mean, it’s just a little private jet, right?”

Cole gestured and the huge hangar doors rolled back, letting Digger see the plane.

“Oh my God…”

Who are Tiffany and Amanda, really? And will Cole’s plan come off as easily as he thinks? Join us tomorrow for the next episode as the trip gets underway!

    Boy, is my face red. I set this episode to drop at midnight and planned to update the front page pic before I left for work this morning. But I obviously forgot, so even though the episode was live all day, you wouldn’t know it from the main page. Urg.
