Megohime tried to ignore Masamune, shooting one of Matsunaga’s men out of orbit. “I just need to buy them a little more time..!” It was no use, Megohime could feel herself passing out, and a moment later, she was slumped in her seat unresponsive.
"Shit, shit, shit!" Masamune grabbed the throttle and forced Shax to just fly, navigating throught the beam fire with Kojurou and whoever was left to the ship, crashing into the docking bay and screaming the ship to take off.
It was a miracle that Shax was even still functioning with Megohime out, but their luck ran out the moment they crash landed inside the docking bay, Shax powering down and leaving Masamune and Megohime in the dimly lit cockpit.
Megohime clung to life, even if just barely; she had finally made it back to her family, she wasn’t ready to drop dead just yet, but Matsunaga had done his damage. Megohime’s lung capacity had taken a heavy hit, and with how irregular and shallow her breathing was, she nearly needed to be ventilated.
