About this creation
Date: Thursday April 18th 2097.
Location: Earth Monroeville Alabama.




Jack *narrating*: I can't believe I'm back in this gator infested heck hole. And worse. I have to work with Harper Finch or as She's known in the criminal world "Mockingbird." I was her right hand man for about a year after the shift. Which considering she is left handed wasn't that big of a deal. Eventually I got tired of it and told her I was going on a "Weapons run" to Mobile and- well. You already know what I really did once I got there. Anyways. At least I had some extra fire power this time to fend off gators. Although you could tell that They weren't expecting to be trekking trough a jungle for six hours.

Rico: Man. You're sure we're in Alabama?
Jack: Yep. Excel to be exact. We'll be at the courthouse in about an hour.
Kyla: Well It looks more like Fuyoria to me.
Fra'nk: Excepth ith's hother...
Rico: Well we're ahead of schedule so we can stop for a bit.
Jack: But we're literally almost there!
Rico: I'm the one in charge of this mission Kid. We're stopping.
Jack: *Sigh.* Alright... There's a clearing up ahead. We can take a quick rest there.


Later...




Rico: Alright. I made sure to bring enough food for all four of us.
Kyla: Are you seriously comparing Protein rations to food? These things taste more like lawn clippings.
Rico: Yeah. It is pretty rough. But it's not like there's any other options.
Kyla: *Sigh.* at least this batch smells better than usual. Kinda smells like pizza honestly.

*It's not your rations.*



*The Aurelii turn and look to find Jack eating a pizza.*

Kyla: Where did you get that?
Jack: Uh... Out of my ship's fridge?
Rico: Your ship has a fridge?!
Jack: Of course it does. How else would I last a trip from Qoter to Zarus? I'd offer you a slice but you already brought your own lunch.

*Rico Drops the rations on the ground.*

Rico: What lunch?


Later (Again.)...




Jack: Alright. We're about 3 miles away from the Courthouse. Mockingbird's Gang have hunting traps set up all though these woods so you guys wait here and I'm gonna go find us a clear path to the courthouse.
Rico: Alright. But be quick about it.

*Jack leaves.*



*Then suddenly Fra'nk is shot in the torso and falls over.*

Kyla: Fra'nk!
Rico: Whoever you are you're messing with the wrong squad!

*Nah. I think we got the right one...*



*Two hunters come out of the bushes behind Kyla and Rico and hold them at gun point and their leader steps out in front of them.*
Lead Hunter: Well now. Looks like we done caught us some lobster backed Yankees eh boys?
Rico: Listen. We're here to see Mockingbird.
Lead Hunter: Sure ya are. But how do we know ya ain't workin' fur the Empire?
Kyla: Uh are you color blind?
Lead Hunter: Yes but that's not the point. Don't nobody come this close to our base. Mockingbird tells her clients to go to the old bank. So the only reason you'd be this close be if ya were gonna try and sabotage our operation!
Rico: Well Our guide Jack Brickton brought us this far but went ahead to check for traps.
Lead Hunter: Haha! You're a terrible liar ya know that? There ain't no way Brickton is ere. But yer in luck. We'll let ya speak to Mockingbird. But the only kinda bargaining yer gonna be making is to convince her to let y'all live. Ha ha!


Later...




Jack comes back to find Rico and Kyla's weapons and Fra'nk on the ground.
Jack: Oh crud! Fra'nk! Wake up! Can you hear me?
Fra'nk: Ugh...



*Jack helps Fra'nk sit up.*

Fra'nk: Jackth? Whath Happeneds?
Jack: From the look of it you were shot in the side. Luckily it just tore your armor Where's Kyla And Rico?
Fra'nk: Thoseth hunthers musth ad takens thems!
Jack: Hunters? Those scum bags! Are you able to fight?
Fra'nk: I thinkth sso.. But My blasther isth busthed.
Jack: That's fine. Just grab the others weapons and follow me.



Jack: I swear if anything happens to those two it'll be a different kind of "To kill a Mockingbird" Going on in the Courthouse.







Meanwhile at The Old Monroe County Courthouse...






Mockingbird: Well now. What did you boys find this time?
Lead Hunter: We found a couple o'redcoats snoopin' round the woods.
Rico: I can explain!
Lead Hunter: Shut it you!
Mockingbird: Oh cut it out Richie! I'll listen to what Mr Redcoat has to say...

Later...




Rico: And then Brickton went to check and make sure there weren't any traps on the path and that's when your gang jumped us.
*Mockingbird takes a sip of her iced tea.*

Mockingbird: Well Mr Ryther. Your excuse is almost believable.
Rico: Thank goodness!
Mockingbird: I said it was ALMOST believable. There ain't no way Brickton would be here. Last I heard he had raided that squids palace on Toliv. So Why on earth woould he agree to come back here?
*I asked myself the same thing Harpy.*
Mockingbird: Huh?



*Everyone turns to see Jack siting in a jury seat eating an apple.*
Mockingbird: Well now. If it isn't Back Stabber Bickton Himself. How the heck did you get in here?
Jack: I came through the window. By the way. You should really cut back your apple tree. those branches could fall on the roof if a hurricane comes through.



*While the Goons and Mockingbird were distracted by Jack's sudden appearance Fra'nk had crawled under the building and handed Rico his blaster through the hole in the floorboard.*



*Rico Shoots Mockingbird's Glass causing two of the goons to turn back towards him*

Mockingbird: EEK!

*Ducks behind the desk.*

Jack: Kyla! Now!



*Kyla grabs Richie Finch's gun and twists his arm.*

Richie: HEY!
Mockingbird: STOP THEM YOU IDIOTS!

*Meanwhile Jack throws his apple across the room distracting the goon in front of him long enough so Jack can grab his gun.*

Jack: I'll take this.



*Kyla Flips Richie over and he crashes to the floor as She takes his gun and points it at him.*
Kyla: You move and you die.

*meanwhile Jack tosses the goons gun into the jury booth. and hold his pocket knife in front of him.*

Jack: Let's put a smile on that face...
Goon: What?
Jack: Oh come on! The Dark Knight? It's a classic!
Goon: I have no idea what you're talkin' about.

*Suddenly Fra'nk bursts through the floor boards and holds the goon in front of Rico at gun point.*
Fra'nk: 'Ands upth!

*With the goon occupied Rico points his blaster at Mockingbird.*

Rico: Alright. I don't want to have to hurt anyone so if you call off your goons we'll work this thing out civilly...
Mockingbird: *Gulp.* Okay...

Later...




Rico: What's the deal. Our order was pre-payed!
Harpy: We uh don't have the guns you ordered.
Jack: Come on Harpy. It ain't like you to scam customers. yet alone attack them. It's not your style.
Mockingbird: I've changed a lot since you worked for me Bricksy.
Jack: No. You're just as lousy of a liar as before. What's going on?
Mockingbirds: *sigh.* Alright. I don't have the guns because we couldn't afford them! My supplier jacked up the price with the whole inflation thing! If it gets any worse I'll be out of business! I can't let that happen! a lot of people here depend on me for work. It's the only reason the town is still here.
Rico: look. Mrs Bird.
Mockingbird: Please. Call me Harper.
Rico: Okay. Mrs Harper. It's hard on everyone with the inflation. but that's on e of the reasons we need those guns! To take down the imperials that did this!
Jack: Um. You seriously think they'd do something that'd mess up their selves? This has to be a crook's doings. Listen harpy. I'll find the cause of this inflation.
Mockingbird: You promise?
Jack: I promise...



much later at the ship.





Rico: And that's why we're coming back with shotguns instead of laser pistols Sir.
General Convo on the com-link: *Sigh.* You know you can't just stop the inflation by taking out one guy.
Jack: I know but I can put a dent in it. This has to be the work of a con artist. And I did some research and found one on Rerador that may be part of it. She goes by the name Dushka Evazorn.
General Convo: Evazorn?
Rico: You've heard of her?
General Convo: She betrayed Aurelia awhile back. I hear she's a big con artist. It fact She's just above Brickton on the Imperium's wanted list. There's even a bounty out for her arrest.
Rico: Well then. Sounds like You've got a date this weekend huh Kid?
Jack: Sure. And I'll take her for a nice long drive to the slammer...

To be continued...

(FYI The reason for the Mockingbird puns is because of the fact Monroeville is the town where Nelle Harper Lee the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird" lived and based a lot of the book on including the courthouse. But It's like only thing Monroeville is famous for though so people go a bit too far with all the mockingbird stuff.

Good episode! I liked the courthouse set and all of the references to other events, as well as the lead-in to your Bounty Hunt build. Good stuff! 5 points! --Blast--

Quoting Sir Flexalot Awesome! I'm bad at keeping track of this but I like reading an episode sometimes!
Thanks! I'm glad that my story is still enjoyable for people who haven't read all of it.

Quoting Garrett W. Interesting! I like the Aurelian squad and I see your throwing in some micro scale too!
Thanks! And yeah. After getting caught up with your series I just had to try my hand at micro builds.

Quoting Marley Mac Very nice episode! It's nice to see how the struggling economy is effecting everybody. Looking forward to the next part! :)
Thanks! And I just realized that it kinda goes along with how businesses here in present day Monroeville depend on the business of tourists and to Kill a Mockingbird fans.

Quoting Traykar the swift Nice episode. The court house was a funbuild, and I liked how you made the floor look decrepit. Um, when you capture the bounty can you do me a favor? Can the economy not be fixed by you capturing the bounty?
Thanks. And it won't effect it at all. Jack is just assuming that She's behind it.
