Maybelle looked around the room and swung her arms slightly before putting them on her hips. “Well Ally we might be in a pickle,” she said trying to figure out the best way to extricate herself from the netting that her ankle was now knotted up in. She had told Ally this would be fun and in a way it was. The Marines were in the holodeck so that meant they could not go play in there. Since the Marines were in the holodeck the gym would be a great place to blow off early morning energy or at least Maybelle thought so. It was not that either kid wanted to cause a problem. It was more that as the two girls ran around the track playing tag the twenty-foot tall netting the Marines and security used for calisthenics looked like the worlds best jungle gym. With it being a Monday morning few people were actually using the gym at this time. The early crowds had worked out and started their shifts. The people getting off their shifts had also since come and left. Only a few security JO’s were running about the track. It was up to them to get free.
As Frank and John ran around the track talking about the women they planned to get to know and the latest sporting team playoffs Frank noticed something odd. “Oh, dude. You think they are stuck,” he pointed at the two girls obviously in a predicament in the netting.
“That or they are trying to break their necks,” John sighed annoyed. “See this is why I am never having kids. Why would they do that?”
“Beats me. Kids are dumb,” Frank said reaching up for his comm badge. =/\=Sir there is an issue in the gym that needs your attention,=/\= he reported to Mardusk.
“Dude he is in a staff meeting,” John said. “With the CO.”
“Yeah, and if we drop them or break their leg trying to get them down, Mardusk, Ryley and their parents will have our arses. It’s not like it is a security threat going on and everyone will only care if they survive it. He is the security chief and is paid the big bucks to deal with this,” Frank shrugged waiting for the chief to comm him back.
