Thirteenth part in the Steamies vs Diesels series
With the reception over, everyone went to relax, rest or returning to their duties.
Mays was resting when Molly came in.
Molly: Hey Mays you want to do something fun?
Mays knew what she had ment.
Mays: Of course I would.
While they did that that Thomas and Lady were planning their Honeymoon in their room for when the war was over.
Thomas: We could head to the mainland?
Lady: I was thinking somewhere more sunny.
Thomas: Like where?
Lady: Oh, nowhere special, just the Carrabian.
Thomas: Woah. Don't forget I have to sort out a lot of things here and don't forget, your pregnant.
Lady: Aww, but I got something very 'special' for you on our honeymoon, and we can wait for our child before we leave.
Thomas: Fine, you win. Now lets sleep.
Lady: Thank you, but I was thinking of doing 'something' else.
Technician: Lord 10. Weapon Z is ready for deployment.
D10: Excellent. Have it deployed tomorrow night.
Technician: Yes, my lord.
Sidney(steam engine): That was a great reception.
Sixteen: Yeah, everything seems quite tonight.
Little Barford: Hopefully it stays that way.
Rosie: Percy can we have a talk?
Percy: Sure Rosie.
Rosie: Percy, do you like me?
Percy: Well...yeah, but you were always trying after Thomas. When he asked Lady to marry him, I hoped that you would move on, but you didn't and whe...
He was interrupted when Rosie pressed her lips against his. When she broke away, Percy was speechless.
Rosie: Now I want you.
Percy: then i wont stop you.
Soon they were makeing out. The next day Thomas and Lady woke up.
Thomas: Morning beautiful.
Thomas: Well, I better get up.
Lady:<grabs him>Please stay with me.
Thomas: I wish, but someone has to give the orders.
Lady: ok Dear.
Albert, 13, City of Truro, Mallard and Flying Scotsman were in the Control Room. They were checking the reports from all of the Steam bases and Diesel activity.
Flying Scotsman: Everything seems to be quite, for once.
Albert: Yes. Thank god.
Then Thomas walked in.
Thomas: What is the status?
13: All steam bases are quite for once.
Thomas: They are still to remain on guard.
Mallard: Yes sir.
Thomas: Good. Tell all of the commanders to meet me in the briefing room.
13: On it.
Soon all the comanders were in the breifing room.
Sir Handel: Why have we been called here?
Thomas: To disscuss tactics on how to reclaim more of the island. Since we took back the Power Station and Central Island Quarry, we now control 32% of the Island, now we should push the Diesels back further.
Mays: How? We would not be able to carry out something like that very quickly.
Thomas: I have a plan, but first you will all be told to attack certain targets, Fergus you can try to reclaim the Cement Works. Everyone else, you will recieve a list of who is attacking where.
Commanders: Yes Sir.
Thomas: Good, this is part of Operation Strike-Back, which will start tomorrrow.
Soon the list was ready.
