Kraktus was fuming. His scouter had finally picked up one of the dammed Stargoons. He had been looking for them for months. Yet they had been off the radar. Yet his scouter now picked up Bamboo back on the planet. Was she the only one left? What had happened to the rest of them!? Kraktus had a lot better then to do then lay into the damn mercenary. This was why he needed a personal army like the WTF. He could not trust merc to stay loyal to him. They would just go off and disspear to who knows where never to be seen again. When he found her he was going to give her an earful. Kraktus landed in the Gizard Wastelands where his scouter had last picked up her power. Kraktus focused hi ki inward letting himself be sensed by anyone in the area. He swore if she didn't come out and someone else did he was going to tear them to shreads. "Bamboo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Kraktus roared with clear anger the shout having enough force to shackle the ground and collapse some of the nearby rock structures. "Where the fuck are you! Get out here I need to ask you some questions mainly where the fuck have you been!"
The day may have been spiced up a touch by a previous meeting, but Bamboo would still rank it as a pretty net-boring day. It wasn't that she had particularly high standards for days which were fun- she had just blown up a planet recently. Was pretty hard to top that on the fun-o-meter, even on a good day.
But it seemed people were looking for her today. She heard Kraktus's voice boom out over the plain, her head whipping around to try and locate him. She sniffed the air a touch- ah, he was over there! He smelled stronger, too- though Bamboo had grown in strength as well. She broke away from her rock, stretching and dropping her gravity belt. Boredom and training- they went hand in hand.
She sprouted her wings and flew over to the tentacled man, landing with a mock-salute. "Yo, what's-" She was cut off by his continued yelling, the strength of which slicked her hair straight back. She shook her head once he was finished, releasing her hair from it's windy shackles.
"Woah woah, Boss, hold up!" Bamboo held up her hands sheepishly, her usual ear-to-ear grin plastered on her face. "I've been around. We got jobs to do n' stuff. Since we last talked, I think..." She tapped her chin with her new demonic arm before recalling just how she got it. "Ah, right- we saved a fellow Goon from the demon realm. Got to eat some demons, too." She nodded. still pondering. "Next... got hired by a Saiyan, I think Ress or Crass or something. Went to Namek, blew it up, blah blah, got away... you know how it goes." She shrugged. "Oh, but we're moving our base from Earth to Knutts! Less goodies to bother us over there." She was more or less just spewing verbal diarrhea, listing everything he might want to know from the past month's events.
"Uh... that's it, I think." She nodded, bouncing on her feet a bit. "What's up? Want us to do something? I'm not really sure what was in your contract, though... might wanna talk to Mumbo about that kinda stuff."

Kraktus beeped alerting him to the strength Bamboo passed. She had grown quite strong. She was nearly as strong as he was now. He had to wonder what that meant for the rest of the goons. He assumed she was not the strongest among them. She seemed to be a bit of a brainless drone. At least she came out and she decided to explain herself. She explained they had been working on a lot of stuff. They had gone to the demon realm and killed some demons. Then they got wired by a saiyan named...crass or re... Kraktus raised his hand to pause her though she was already talking so it probably didn't do much other than to show his anger He took in a deep breath. So they blew up Namek? All of Namek gone to waste and now they were moving to Knutts. "I see that is quite interesting to give me one moment."
Kraktus walked away from her and took in a deep breath. "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" Kraktus roared with a fury he didn't know he had as his aura flashed to life as he blasted rock to pieces with the force of his shout. The rocks fell upon him his eyes glazed over in pure anger. The veins on his forehead nearly burst off. He was fuming so much that his face was turning red. This was such a fuck up on so many levels. Kraktus could not even comprehend what was happening. All his plans and this was what he got. The fucking Stargoons working with Cress. Finally, after a few more seconds of silence Kraktus puffed down. The veins were still visible and the anger was still there but at least he didn't look like a puffer fish now. "Sorry I just have never been so angry in my life. It not your fault." It was her fault but he didn't want to hurt the simplition feelings. The stargoons were still useful even if they had just tested his patience.
"So you guys went to Demon Realm and I assumed you killed Sensoa. Good for you. Sensoa wanted me to help him blow away Namek and Konats. I was happy to ask you all to help with that though I know Mumbo and the other are not of a fan of his spineless ways. But he would have been a good ally if put on a leash. Sadly that never happened but I don't care. I'd rather have you all working for me then that coward. I molded him into a monster then he turned into a spineless dog." Kraktus sneered. "But you work for Cress? Cress belittled and insulted me. Then he goes and makes you all do some job on Namek. Plus I didn't want Namek blown up. The Earthlings will just restore it and you have all this heat upon you all." Kraktus huffed. "But of course the worst part is no one calls me to tell me. I've been sitting here for months think you all left my employ and my worst fears have come to pass." Kraktus shook his head as he walked over to Bamboo.
"As for your question yes I do want something done?" Kraktus looked over her. "I want to know where Cress is. Because I am going to go kill him. I won't have you all work for someone else especially someone like him. I want to hire you all so I can get my chance to kill him. Tell the others that if you meet them again. You all have the right to work for others and I respect that but I have big plans but they need time. This attack means my plans are pushed back greatly. So you can maybe understand why I am angry." Krkatus took in another deep breath. "But it is not your fault. Mumbo is the one who accepted the job? He was the one who cleared you all to head to Namek?" Guess he also needs to smack Mumbo around. Though not too much if he lost Mumbo faith he lost the stargoons.

Wow, Kraktus could sure be loud! Her hair was once again slicked back by his explosive screams- once again, she shook her head to un-stick it back into it's usual style. Unwashed chaos. At least Kraktus got the twigs out.
Well, at least it wasn't her fault! That was a relief.
The more Kraktus spoke, though, the more confused she got. She attempted to raise her finger to speak a couple of times, but her new Boss didn't seem particularly keen on it. Well, that was fine. "...Huh?" She said, finally. She wasn't attempting to be disrespectful- she was simply confused.
"W-Wait, so..." She poked her fingers together. "You wanted to blow up Namek with Sensoa? But... but then why don't you want Namek blown up now?" She tapped her chin, furrowing her eyebrows. "Did you want to get it, like, blown up later?" Probably. She just wanted to ask to make sure. She thought all villains loved blowing up stuff- Kraktus was like, the most villain villain she knew! Other then the other Goons, of course. She was sure he'd be ecstatic to know that they blew the planet up...
But that'd need to wait- she had other questions to answer! She saluted at his new order for what to do. "I have no idea where Cress is!" She reported with a salute. "He might've mentioned wanting to grab the Earth dragonballs, but... well, I'm not sure. He must be around here somewhere..." She scratched the back of her head sheepishly, pointing her toes inward. "We also didn't know that you and Cress didn't like each other! I get it. Sometimes villains just don't jive the way you want them to, right?" She understood his point of view. She was feeling him deeply!
"As for killing Cress, hm... I'm not really sure." She shook her head, tapping her chin in thought. "I don't like the guy. But technically, he didn't bail on our contract or anything like Sensoa did. People still complained about that, y'know." She shook her head. She hated PR! "Don't wanna make it seem like we'll go and kill other baddies n' stuff. Especially people who bought our services. When people see that, they think, 'Uh oh! Maybe they'll kill me next time!?' and it's a whole mess." Bamboo didn't have much common sense, but she had a reasonable amount of business competence.
"But if Mumbo told us to do it, I'm sure we'd be on the job!" She looked both ways, almost as if checking her surroundings. "But between you and me, I might be willing to help you off-duty!" She cleared her throat. "But Mumbo told us to do it, yeah. You should ask him about killing Cress, too! He's on Knutts right now, I think. Did I tell you we're moving to Knutts?"

Kraktus finally took a deep breath and listened to Bamboo. When she asked about Sensoa he nodded. "I was willing to go against my plans to have Sensoa on my side. He was very powerful. Plus the terror he inspired might have gathered more villains to our side. Furthermore, even if I wanted to do it didn't mean I would of. I was going to first talk to Mumbo about letting Sensoa join us on such a mission. You all are more valuable than any one person. I was there at the battle where eventually he betrayed the cause. As for Namek, I wanted to not blow it up first. Because now you give Earth and the Saiyans something to fight. My goal was to get Earth and Vegeta to fight one another. While they did that I'd gather my forces. The Saiyan and Earth would weaken one another then we'd strike Earth and then Namek. Destroy the dragonballs first before we go crushing everything else. Afterall, the dragonballs can just reverse any damage that we do." Kraktus sighed.
Kraktus tilted his head when Cress mentioned Earth Dragonballs. Was he going to destroy them? Kraktus growled. "So I see what he is doing. He trying to take my spot. Who the hell does he think he is." Kraktus clenched his fist. "I understand. He is not a pawn. He is a Knight. And a Knight that is a pain in my side." Kraktus looked at Bamboo. "As you said you would have no idea I disliked Cress. It is my fault for not telling you all. I am one hundred percent to blame on that account." Kraktus was glad she understood his view it was good they had not fallen under Cress's sway. If Kraktus had grabbed the Goons contract for good he'd be in trouble.
However, she then noted they couldn't really go take a contract on Cress. "Hm." Kraktus had to admit her reasoning was good. How could he expect them to break a contract for him? Plus he set a precedent. Someone could use the Goons on him later on. Kraktus closed his eyes. "You are correct I can't ask you all to kill him. You have a good point Bamboo. I guess I'll have to talk to Mumbo on that account. Either way, I plan to kill him. Regardless if you all plan to work with me again or not." Speaking of she even told him where should be which was Knutts. "Knutts huh? I see I'll head to Knutts right away. And yes you did I believe note your all moving to Knutts." Kraktus looked over at her. "So what do you think of Cress compared to me anyway." While she noted she didn't like him he wanted to get a view of all the goons on Cress compared to him.

Sensoa? Scary? Inspiring other villains? Bamboo furrowed her eyebrow. That wasn't really what she thought about when she thought of Sensoa. He was more... flaky. Weird. Not a great fight. She looked down at her demonic arm. Well, at least he inspired something. The arm was pretty cool, after all. She liked being able to spew fire. Fire was, like, top 5 in the most fun elements to abuse. Especially purple fire, purple was a cooler color then red, anyways. No shame to the Red Goon, though.
Bamboo supposed she could see his plan- if they destroyed both sets of Dragonballs, then the stuff they'd do was permanent! At least, she was pretty sure it was. Truthfully, Bamboo didn't really know what to think of the plan. On one hand, if there were real consequences for dying, then people would fight harder to stay alive and keep on kicking, get angrier when their friends and families died. It'd be a great source for good quality fights- but, eventually, without being able to bring strong fighters back, she'd have no one else to clobber. She couldn't always wait for people to get as strong as her- she didn't want to be old and boring when all the strong fighters were up and coming! It was a real pickle, a classic brain-twister. Thus, Bamboo just didn't really think of it much. She didn't like thinking, after all.
Either way, it seemed like Cress was doing the same thing! Bamboo didn't really know why Cress and Kraktus didn't like eachother if they were going for the same goal. It'd be so much more efficient if they made a villain team! Like the goons! Less cool then the goons, sure, but probably pretty effective nonetheless. Regardless, she shook her head. She didn't really know what a Knight was.
At Kraktus's assertion of her good point, she placed her fists on her hips and grinned. Aha! She was smart, she knew it. Now he was asking her stuff she could definitely answer! "I like you more!" She gave an enthusiastic point to accompany her exclamation. "Cress just kinda hired us and didn't talk to us. Oh, and he was super whiny about it the whole time. He was all, 'Hey, you guys aren't all that great anyways!' even though he was weaker then me! The nerve of that guy, really. Man! When I tried to blow up the planet, he stopped me, too! Wanted to do it himself or something. Like, huh? He hired us to blow it up! He stopped me from blowing it up! Who does that, really!? Ugh!" She stomped her foot into the ground, cheeks firmly puffed, pouting. "So yeah! You talked to us first n' stuff. I think that's cool. Communication is good! I think the other guy just knows how to brood or be angry or something. Like, lighten up, y'know?"

Kraktus sat waiting for an answer wondering what his next move would be. He was in dangerous waters and each of his moves had to be carefully planned. If he made one wrong step then he'd be gone and his plans would vanish. All he had worked for was on the edge of collapse. Kraktus had to admit as much as he hated it, he also enjoyed it. Being in a corner brought the fierce out of an animal and hopefully, it'd do the same for him. He shows the entire universe why Kraktus was a name to be feared and to quake in the face of. Kraktus sighed as Bamboo finally admitted he liked her power and explained why. Cress seemed to want to degrade them and he didn't talk to them. He even had the gall to steal a kill. He could see that Cress was not all that wise he had misstepped greatly. "I see so he is a brute. He hired you for his glory. Disgusting and vain. I have to put a stop to that. You can't have a man like that leading the Stargoons around on missions. You'll all be known as a bunch of low-class servents. Running to the whims of a brute." Kraktus waved his hand.
Kraktus lifted a rock into his hands looking at it in thought. "I see Bamboo so what is most important to you is a good boss. Someone who gives you the job and does not get in the way. Someone who respects you all." Kraktus didn't respect most of them that much. Most of them were cutthroats but she was right in some ways. Krkatus had been missing that as General of the WTF. He wanted to rule the world but he refused to let the pawns rule with him. He wanted to stand at the top but that only lead to breakage. He had been too keen. He could not move his pawns to postion himself as the Alpha untill he proved without a shadow of a doubt he was the one to lead them. "I realize now my flaws," Kraktus admitted in a pained grunt. "The reason Cress got the jump on me is that I became too ridged as if I was close to my goals." Kraktus laughed darkly. "Thank you, Bamboo for making me realize this. While I can't offer you much I'd feel that I must give you something in return for the help you have just granted me." Kraktus bowed his head to Bamboo.

Wow, Kraktus sure understood what she wanted! Sure, he was prone to fits of violence and rage, but that was par for the course. Bamboo herself was pretty partial to occasional fits of violence and rage, too. In fact, her fits occurred far more then occasionally. It was more like they happened frequently, actually. What was she thinking about, again?
Eh, it didn't matter. All that mattered was that he was a cool boss!
"Yeah! I hate bending to the whims of brutes! I hate brutes! Who needs 'em, anyways? Respect n' stuff! Yeah!" It wasn't like she knew what 'whims' or 'brutes' meant, but she was easily influenced and eager to put on an agreeable face. Words weren't important, right? She even got him to do some ever-important self-reflection. Bamboo always wanted to do some of that, but she'd never found the time. Or the means.
"Yes! It's important not to be rigid!" Hey! She knew what that word meant! "You always gotta make sure to stay flexible. Like me!" In an anatomically-questionable feat of acrobatics, Bamboo leaned backwards so far that her head poked out from between her legs. She grinned at him from the compromising position, glad she could level with the octopus. "Yeah! Like this! Flexible!" She gave him a thumbs-up. Well, what was meant to be a thumbs-up- she actually gave him a thumbs-down, since her field of vision was upside-down. Technicalities, right?
Upon his proclamation of a gift, she snapped back into her normal slightly-slouched posture. "Something... something... Oh, I know!" She clapped her hands together in glee. "Could I have a lifetime supply of illegal Hetap? The super-duper banned stuff!" She nodded, entirely satisfied with her choice. "Oh, but it needs to be the illegal stuff! I can't be seen having the legal stuff, that's for goodie-goods. The real bad guys only drink illegal stuff!" She gave him a real, illegal thumbs-up.

"Yes working for a fool is not my style nor is it your style. I don't even like working for people but if I am going to work for someone it needs to be someone smart and not someone that tends to get on my nerves." Kraktus shook his head. Still for a dumb plant lady Bamboo was quite helpful. He needed to be looser with his plans. He had been so ridged with how things had to go that he had not considered how things would actually go. Though maybe not as loose as Bamboo who was stretching around in some very odd angles. If he wanted to survive and finsh his plans he needed to change the world. As for her reward she asked..for hetap. A lifetime supply of Hetap? "Illegal Hetap?" Kraktus tilted his head. "Excuse me I don't mean to be rude but what is Hetap." Kraktus really didn't know much about the beverages of this plant. He drank water and sometimes coffee. Anything else he would never touch. Kraktus rubbed his forehead. Plus she wanted him to get illegally? Or a brand that was illegal? Kraktus was a bit confused. Maybe he was having some sort of brain fart but he really had no idea.
