Professor Bartowitsch had vanished and Doctor Cindy-Anna Bones who had been on his trail for a long time had entered Hollow Earth a couple of weeks ago. The infamous Thule society was still in possession of the Haunebu II flying disc, yet they did not have the weapon technology to arm it with the KSK-Kraftstrahlkanone.
Gossip had it that the Germans were trying to ship an experimental prototype to New Swabia in the Antarctic.
Doctor Thule unleashed his bloodhounds to track down the German freighter and rob the secret weapon.
What Thule knew was not unknown to the U.S. government. L.O.L. agents boarded a seaplane and set course towards the suspected position of the trawler too.
Meanwhile the rather unsuspicious Doreen Goldbeck of Cheskora Lines from Kiel on the Baltic Sea had left the North Sea and set sail for the south on the Atlantic Ocean.
The merchant navy vessel had a naval crew of six:
Kapitänleutnant Hans Larsen and Leutnant zur See Friedhelm Fröhlich manned the rudder house with the lieutenant on the wheel.
Bootsmannsmaat Karl Sepplhuber stood watch on the port side of the ship.
The other soldiers were having a chat in the mess. There were Bootsmann Ernst Bückling, Obergefreiter Bodo Schwarzbrand and Gefreiter Josef "Jojo" Johansen.
Though apart from their secret cargo they also had passengers aboard.
Oberstleutnant Udo von Protzmann...
...and his very pretty assistant Solveig Brandner, a VRIL medium, accompanied the cannon.
They had a complete set of plans for its construction with them.
Both were chosen for some special ability that was rare to find these days.
It was right then that a small but quick boat arrived and blocked their way.
Thule society had entered the scene.
And they then boarded the Doreen.
Bootsmannsmaat Sepplhuber sounded the ships siren to alarm the crew and moved into a good firing position with his LMG where he could overwatch the entire loading deck.
Doctor Thules minions climbed up the anchor and took the fore deck.
The roaring sound of an aircrafts engine drew attention. L.O.L. arrived and got a good impression of what was going on from above.
Herr Kehlmann jumped successfully over the gap between the decks:
L.O.L. agent (possibly super-special agent, but nobody knew for sure) Johnson and his boss Lara Bancroft took the short way aboard.
Herr Wolfram cautiously moved behind cover...
...while the L.O.L. agents tried to spot the plans for the cannon.
Obergefreiter Bodo Schwarzbrand left the mess and opened fire on the pirates.
Herr Wolfram secured Herr Kehlmanns assault over the main deck from behind the secret weapon.
Agent Johnson approached the engine deck, but he decided to turn left for the stairs to the mess deck.
The Bootsmannsmaat covered the main deck with lead from his Mg 34.
He drew first blood and cut down Herr Kehlmann like dry straw.
Agent Johnson ascended the stairs to where the German PFC stood shooting at the Thule men.
Herr Wolfram tried to cross the deck and fired at the murderer of his comrade Herr Kehlmann. He missed the Bootsmannsmaat, who stood on high ground and in cover of the solid railing.
All that noise from hammering submachine guns and the light machine gun produced a rather upset staff officer called von Protzmann.
His loudly shouted commands brought forth his assistant as well. The girl had already been asleep and stepped to the balcony only scantily clad.
It was late at night and the full moon should have been visible on the horizon, though it was hidden behind some clouds.
Agent Lara Bancroft followed Agent Johnson upstairs, but decided to jump sideways up to the loading deck when Johnson hesitated to avoid stumbling into Schwarzbrands line of fire.
She fumbled the jump and fell into the gap hurting her angle.
Then the full moon broke through the clouds...
...and Oberstleutnant Udo von Protzmann lost his human appearance and turned into a howling werewolf!
He leapt from the balcony immediately to tear up Herr Wolframs throat.
That powerful superhuman jump brought him right into close combat...
The brave American agent had climbed the deck and aimed at the wolfmans back. No silver bullets loaded...
Herr Müller seized the moment of distraction and left cover.
Werewolf von Protzmann had finished his bloody task and leapt back to face the agent.
Agent Lara Bancroft had a hard time to resist the wolfbeasts mighty blows and finally got torn to pieces.
Though her fellow Agent Johnson could set an end to Obergefreiter Bodo Schwarzbrand and his submachine gun. The dead PFC went overboard.
Bootsmann Ernst Bückling wanted to avenge his comrades death and jumped out of the mess door.
Dead bodies were already plastering the deck...
...when Herr Müller sneaked behind the back of the wolfen lieutenant colonel...
...and his fellow Herr Steiner charged along the starboard walkway. (bottom right corner of the pic)
The poor sod ran right into Bootsmann Bücklings fire. The bearded sergeant smiled grimly on his death.
Then Solveig Brandner also shifted her shape and turned to be a she-wolf!
She jumped down from right where she stood off the balcony and landed on L.O.L. Agent Johnson, who got down rather puzzled.
Exactly then the moon vanished behind some clouds and the naked young lady stood over him.
In a flash of insight he jumped up and shoved her overboard before she could do something else.
I´ll be back after a short break...(to be continued)
