The airship was a great hulking beast of a thing. The body reminded her of a bowhead whale. In the back, twin vertical steering fins were probably six stories tall at least. The gondola boasted three, four, maybe even five levels—she couldn’t quite tell from this distance—and was snuggly attached to the belly of the plump, stretching bladder filled with helium gas. Four massive propellers stabbed out from the gondola’s front and rear and could be swiveled horizontally or vertically for additional lift or propulsion. They were angled toward the earth at the moment, already spinning in preparation for takeoff.
His motorcycle still revving, Knox’s muttered thickly. “I supposed you think you’re clever leaving me behind like that.”
“Clearly not clever enough,” she replied airily. “You’re here, aren’t you?”
“You owe that poor attendant back there an apology. I had to steal his only transport.” He patted the handlebars.
“Then it sounds like you owe him an apology.” She’d expected to see people lined up on the platform, or crew readying the ship. There were none. She supposed the passengers were all aboard. The loading doors were closed…the propellers spinning? Wait, was it already off the ground? “Oh, no! Are they taking off without us?!”
