The Men in Black find young Fry, and they find that Kelgugg is closer than they think...

The two suddenly heard a distinctive Texas drawl from behind them. “Philip J. Fry - you’re just the man I want to see.”
Fry glanced at the two men in suits with Morgan tagging along with them. Bender was quick to offer an explanation, tossing his hands palm-up. “I know what this looks like...we were at the race, but we didn’t bet any money. We were simply enjoying a competitive sporting event and we have a natural affinity for entomology…”
   Agent J spoke first. “We don’t care about that. We need to chat with your boy here.”
   Morgan was busy looking at messages on her wrist thingee. “Gents? I’ve got to go - the local MIB field office needs me to sign some papers. I’ll catch up later.”
   As Morgan bustled off, the Texan watched her go. “Good God - I thought she’d never leave.” He then put his cell phone discreetly back in his suit pocket.
   J laughed at his partner. “You stinker - you sent that message, didn’t you?”
“It was worth parting with an extra pair sunglasses just to get rid of her.” He then turned his attention to Fry. “Young Philip - I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but you’re in a world of danger. You might as well be trying to run through a Texas rottweiler farm with steaks tied to your legs smeared with barbecue sauce.”
   J looked over at K. “Was all that necessary? Was that really necessary? Look Phil, we were in New York where you used to deliver pizzas, and you are being pursued by a killer.”
   Fry’s eyes got big. “Who would want to kill me? I know some people complained about the pizza, but this?”
   K took back over. “Philip - did you speak with an Aregulian starship captain?”
   “No, no…”
   J spoke again. “You were there - we found your pizza…”
   “Well, I ended up dumping a bunch of those things...after I ran into that guy…”
   “What guy?” asked K.
   “He needed an ambulance, so I called him one. Oh my God - then I got frozen on the next delivery. Did the ambulance get to him? I only hit him with my bike. Am I in trouble?”
   “He was eliminated shortly after you left,” K told him. “He was liquified.”
   Bender looked at Fry. “You musta drove one hell of a bike, Fry.”
   “It all makes sense now,” J added.
   K spoke again. “Look - did he give you anything? Leave anything with you?”
   “Just the stone - I keep it for good luck.” He pulled the stone out of his pocket, which still glowed slightly in his hand.
   K just stood there. “It’s a fragment of the Stone of Arkroft. I never thought I’d be laying eyes on it. Just one of those placed into a photon beam amplifier could blast this planet to bits.”
   J just whistled.
   “I’ve never seen it glow like that,” added Fry.
   “It only glows when a Thesulian is near...probably our buddy Kelgugg. And he’s probably fit to be tied,” said K. “He’ll be madder than a cut snake in a rodeo now that we’ve got it.”
   “You mean he’s mad enough” Fry gulped, “to kill?”
   “Son, that’s just what Thesulians do. And this old boy has no sense of humor.”
   Bender lit up a cigar. “Oh, you mean old ‘bug eyes’...”
   J spun around. “You saw him?”
   “Yeah...you could say we had words…”
   “When?”
   “A few minutes ago - you practically just missed him.”
   The elder Texan looked at his buddy. “We’ve got to get moving slick. Philip, Tin Man, you two better stay close as we roll.”
   J asked K, “But what about our new buddy?”
   “I’ve got some filing for her to do down at the local MIB headquarters...we may never see her again.”
   Fry made a “pshhtt” sound. “That won’t keep her long - she’ll be back.”
   Meanwhile, Kelgugg the Divider stood outside of the Planet Express building. His small green amulet on a chain around his neck glowed bright green. “It’s been here,” he commented to himself. “You’ve been here, young Philip J. Fry. Where are you now?”

The Futurama pages on Faceplant have hundreds of people on them.
Greg and I do our best with the Madhouse's Snapface page.

It's been 8 weeks at this point. I got the cast off on April 9, I'm in a walking boot and going to physical therapy. I'm hoping that they'll let me drive after my next appointment on May 7.  The break at the knee is good. Like the doctors said, when they reset the ankle, the knee would heal itself.  The ankle is sore and there is still some swelling, but it feels like the pain is mainly from being used for the first time in two months.  The only other real pain is around where the screws are at in my ankle. 

Yack!  Hope you can get back to being my fellow bad cop, too.  (Not that there's much policing needed.  Ramon and I are trying our best to drum up business.  The Futurama pages on Faceplant have hundreds of people on them.)

Your stories are always worth waiting for.

Oh, by the way, nice nicitating membrane!  (See, I WAS looking at her face.)

Thanks! A little Adobe goes a long way. That membrane makes a lot more sense than her "elbow talons" from the show. And it would close and open fairly quickly...just fast enough to make someone go, "What was that?"

     It will be a lot more fun in the Alternate Leela stories, where I can really use it.

It's been 4-6 weeks or more...
How's your leg?
Pretty good, all things considered.  Thanks for asking, Eric.

What I'm assuming you're looking for,  ;) , writing has been non-existent because of actual work. I spent my first three weeks of being home writing two reports that cover large areas that are being rebuilt for new transportation centers, and the rest of the time has been spent writing a major report involving the environmental work for a certain structure that's been proposed to be built honoring a local guy, that was born in Kenya, in part of a public park. 

I hope to be able to write soon.
