Algernon looked down at the report before him a aide of Hyppia stood to at his rear awaiting for a response. "It would seem our technical difficulties have spread to our sister ship, there has been no communication with Gullimans Honour for over 3 hrs". Talking to no one in particular the Strike Force Commander walked round the desk and sat down in a chair in his private chambers, which was dark but for a holographic display of planet Arkhona lighting the room he looked at the aide.Inform admiral that a squad from the 4th will be looking into theproblem's on board Aegis". "you believe this to be sabotage ?" came the voice from the dark corner of the room,"its the only theoretical that makes sense at this time we are gonna need more information to form a practical." "and what of the blank my lord how do you wish to proceed"spoke the aide."Our Chaplain Rekius here along with librarian Gavikk will head over to the Gullimans honour in a thunderhawk and find out the reason why we have lost communication.they are then to assume command and make all appropriate steps to be ship ready and prepared to leave once we have resolved things here".Dismissing the aide he then turned to the ship's Chaplin "be ready to leave within the hour i'll send Sergeant Proto of the 5th and his squad with you just in case this turns into more than just a technical difficulty". he said with a smile "excepting trouble" asked the Chaplin stepping towards the table."I Don't like it Rekius,we're adrift out here we need to get moving as soon as we can, these complication are more than just a coincidence i'm sure of it ". "We will get to the heart of the matter Commander"said the Chaplin as he turned to leave Algernon chamber's heading off to part of the ship where he would find the high librarian and hearing his Commanders last words to him "good hunting Chaplin "courage and honor came the reply.
Librarian Gavikk stood at a alter in the mediation hall, he knew who approached long before he heard there first foot steps and with a smile he turned to greet he's visitors. "I heard the 3rds leantis bested you in the training halls before we left macragge, you must be slipping Meridius, i would never believed a thing possible", said the librarian still smiling as the two members of the first company entering the hall."Not at all i had him exactly where i wanted him he was all mine " laughed the two newcomers as they each grasped the arm of there old mentor. "And you Orc slayer thought you were the one who kept Meridius here, on his toes."like you've said before librarian there are some that just be save from there own stupidity"laughed Meridius's companion."And what now brings you here? my time is short", "now who's slipping not much of a psyker if you don't know what would bring us all this way to the other side of the ship."This last comment got Meridius a look that told him the conversation had moved on to the subject at hand. Cutting in, Varus began to speak "we understand that you are to board the Gulliman and there's also rumors that its a hunt for a sabotor "the librarian look at them both "that has not been confirmed it's more than likely just an technical issue ". "Either way sir,"Meridius now continued."we wish to accompany you aboard we need to be doing something sir Ceasar and Brother Thomas also. Being adrift is worse than a journey through the warp, Ceasar has already worked his way through the company's training servitors and they are all now in need of repair..." "That's enough now"said the librarian keeping his tone low and with the authority that came with his rank "i believe your time with me has spoilt you all, do you assume you think you can pick your own assignments? your back in the first company now, your detached service to the Librarius has now ended when we received orders to Arkhona. five years you brought honor to the chapter whist under my command and it also gave you all a lot more freedom than most don't see in other company's, but your back in the first and your duty is with the Stern Guard and at Algernon side,there's alot more going on as than appears and i know your place is to be on the Aegis.Perhaps you may even thank me for this decision in the days to come". "So you don't believe it to be a accidental ?"said Varus "i'm saying stay close to Algernon and be ready. thing's are gonna be starting sooner rather than later, Aegis is almost repaired and the admiral will be testing the engines shortly ", pausing he look's at both them "now must leave the Chaplin's approaching and i do not want you to have to explain to him why you are in this part of the ship, i will rejoin you again once the fleet is away."with that chief librarian Gavikk moved past both the astartes and out of the meditation chamber.
