Earth's introduction progressed as primitive, humble even. Its beginnings were of grass and dirt, trees slowly blossoming to reach the sky. Animals grew to magnanimous lengths and humans, being as ambitious as they were, lived in caves. When man gained a taste for meat, they hunted, forming packs to take down beasts much larger than themselves. Animals evolved, becoming smarter; humans did too. Soon, forests were cleared, houses were built, humans acknowledged one another and realized their differences. They fought over these small discrepancies with wars and armadas, sacrificing their own to gain wealth, power, and privilege over others. When land ran out, they built ships to sail across the tumultuous sea to expand their reaches.

But it was never enough.

Skyscrapers popped up, one after the other. Made of gleaming metal and glass, they spiraled higher than the clouds. Wars were at last settled, debts repaid, humanity began an era of peace. They flourished together, realizing that their arguments were silly, that their spats were fruitless, and so, together, they worked towards advancing themselves as a better society. With no more war, they put their minds together to cure common ailments, eradicating the cold, fixing fevers with simple patches, even making genome sequencing to get rid of the genetic risk of having an imperfect child. It could not detect everything, such as disabilities that could be brought on later in life by accident, injury, or even undetermined factors that could never be controlled, but the world, for the most part, was harmonious.

Where there is free will, there will always be trouble.

What if the body could be trapped at the perfect age? What if one no longer had to worry about their health? What if humans could live in a pristine body that never died? It would disrupt the cycle of life itself and perhaps put the fate of humanity in a terrible imbalance. Highly illegal experimentation, a company called GENOS began asking for volunteers. Those who were at their end stages of life, willing to donate themselves towards research for what they claimed to be a better future. They would pay well, they promised, to any and all who could gather in the belly of their building and subject themselves to the experiments. They told all it was for the betterment of the future, they claimed that they wanted to freeze humanity at it's prime.

They lied.




ImageImageIt was a woman by the name of Edna Grover who discovered that souls beneath the age of 18 were the most pliable. Adults who attempted the transfer perished, their bodies becoming necrotic and crumbling to dust, soul lost for eternity. Needing to use children, but having no legal permit to do so, the operation went underground, using scrupulous means to recruit the less fortunate. One by one they came, a slow trickle until the method became perfected. The turn around was high, people from all over wanted android children they could program for various functions and tasks. Soldiers, maids, clerks, security guards, they were all ran on one program, the brainchild of Dr. Grover.

It was never enough.

Wanting to take the program further, Dr. Grover wanted to detach the memories from the souls, creating a blank slate, usable for just about anything. She saw herself as a deity, creating life, building bodies, constructing art. It was only when Dr. Grover recruited a twin that she had crossed the line, unwittingly stealing the body of the second to turn into one of her pretty dolls.

❝Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Jace knelt down over Fina, "I received an emergency distress call from you." She said, noting the robot's leaking oil. An enemy stealth unit? Jace furrowed her brow. "My job isn't to protect Minnie, but I'll see if there's any units nearby." Jace closed her eyes, using her field map programming to hunt for any enemy stealth units in the area. "They're masking their registration number, but I located them. Stay here," Jace took off, speeding across the tops of buildings in order to try and catch up. She leaped from one sky scraper to the next, pouring on max speed until the unit she was pursuing disappeared off of the grid. "Tch, damn stealth units," in the corner of her eye, her battery level flickered. Carefully, Jace made her way back over to where Fina was laying. "I'll take you to the apartment and then call Reiss," Jace lay down her jacket over Fina's injuries, lifting up the stealth unit who weighed next to nothing.

There were certain classes of metals used to compose each unit. Jace, being a combat unit, was on the heavier end. Topping her were barricade units, used for police duties that weighed about as much as a law enforcer, and heavy duty units that specialized in work like construction. On the lighter end were operations units, which went on house calls and performed basic repairs on androids, servant class units, that needed the ability to flit around as pleased, stealth units, of which there were only a handful, and Lita. After all, stealth units were used for espionage and mostly requested to be built by government type companies. It seemed odd to Jace that Reiss would have specifically requested a stealth unit, unless she was using Fina for nefarious spying purposes. Jace glanced down at Fina, a spark coming out of her that nearly set them both alight. Gritting her teeth, Jace entered the Tower Records building, their new home.

She set Fina down on the couch and retrieved a charger, plugging Fina in. "Patch in call to Jarvis," Jace said softly, picking up a towel in order to mop up the spilled oil. "Don't be too loud, Lita's probably in power save mode by now." An android's way of sleeping really. "Jace, what is it you need?" Jarvis asked, politely asking why she was bothering him in the middle of the night. "Jarvis, I have Fina in my possession. She's badly damaged, she says that a stealth unit assaulted her and took Minnie Reiss." Jarvis's expression changed, becoming more serious. "I'll send for her at once," he hung up promptly. Jace settled down on the other arm chair, tossing her legs over. She had a spare charger that she was using, figuring she wouldn't go into power save mode until Jarvis arrived to pick up Fina. For now, all they could do was wait. "So, want anything? Water? A bag of chips? Can your unit model ingest food yet?" The newer models turned it into carbon in order to power themselves.

A question was bugging her in the back of her mind, but in truth, Jace didn't want to ask it because she didn't want to be involved in the drama. Nevertheless, it seemed to slip from her mouth. "Who took Minnie? And why?"

❝Take a breath, a leap of faith to the deep unknown.❞

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




Her emergency battery systems were on very low now, she had hardly any juice left in her. Jace had arrived however. "Go save Minnie, I'll be okay!" She was just an android, didn't it make more sense for Jace to go track down this new enemy? If anyone was strong enough, it was a Combat Unit like Jace who now had experience on the kinds of tricks Stealth Units liked to use in combat. Jace went up, taking on the fight but she returned, the target unfound. Unable to give chase, the grey haired Combat Unit was picking her up instead. "I was too weak." One of Fina's problems was how her Stealth Mode and Artemis Mode used up so much of her battery. She could only really do one mission at a time before having to return, that was how much of her battery they consumed.

So being attacked the way she was immediately after a mission, how was she supposed to have done anything?

After waking up from Emergency Mode upon realizing she was plugged into an outlet, Fina opened her optical sensors to look at where she was. This was Tower Records, hadn't she been here once before? Except this time she was invited in rather than infiltrating for a mission. Jace was standing over her, asking her question, telling her not to wake Lita who was no doubt asleep. Which suddenly begged the question that had been bothering the Stealth Unit for a while. "Why did Lita block me on our private channel?" She was still having the Io dreams, was Lita having the Callisto dreams too? "Obviously it's because she got caught, so that Grover bitch did something." Io snapped in her mind, but Fina restrained her.

Who was the enemy? "Someone, I don't know who." She replayed the fight using her optical sensors to display it for Jace to see and hear what went down before she fell, playing the memory from her mind storage. Just seeing that white mask made Fina want to kill him three times over. "Minnie needs her medicine or else something awful might happen." Maybe Lady Reiss would even scrap her after such a failure. "Will you help me save her before it's too late?" Fina hated having to ask Jace of all androids, but there was no one else that might be willing to extend a helping hand.

❝Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Jace propped her legs up, opening up a pudding cup. She tilted her head to the side in question, suddenly made. "Lita had a private channel with you?!" And she hadn't informed her security detail?! Jace was not happy to hear this information, although the fact that it was now blocked eased her a little bit. "It's probably because the original Lita was scrapped. Apparently, there was a terrible bug in her system and it let a virus in. It was eating at her coding, so she kept glitching." Jace recalled that strange moment very clearly. She had never been switched back on and yet, she was up and walking around, her unit still turned off. It was a dangerous bug, one that Jace believed Doctor Grover was right in trying to fix. "This Lita is entirely new, so I'm sure she doesn't remember a private channel with you." Much less ever meeting Fina, although she did know that Minnie Reiss was her rival, strangely enough. Jace licked the pudding off of the top and then dug into it, seemingly unbothered by the chain of events.

There was no definite answer as to who the enemy was, but one thing was certain, they needed to bring back Minnie Reiss. Jace listened as Fina made her proposal, wanting Jace to assist because her human was at risk. "I personally want to deny it, but my programming won't allow me to if the life of a human is at risk." Who would babysit Lita if she was gone though? The human security? Jace scoffed at the idea of leaving those monkey suited men to watch her charge. "You're damage is extensive, I think before you do anything, you should allow Jarvis to fix you." Speaking of which, where was that snappy, no good, butler of their's? "I'm not sure how much I'll be of use. Not until you find the bastard that did this at least." Jace brushed a strand of gray hair out of her face. In the other room, Lita was sound asleep, snoozing in her charging pod.

"Nothing I do is ever good enough, why? Why? Why do you always outshine me!" Io pushed Callisto into the mud, physically stronger than her younger twin. Callisto sat in the puddle of mud, tears welling up in her eyes. "It's not my fault! I try to bring out the best in you, but you just push everyone away!" Callisto cried, only wanting her sister to have the spotlight for once. The two of them had both tried out for the school play and while Callisto got a speaking role, Io had been cast as the part of a... tree. Callisto had begged the director to switch roles, but upon finding out, Io had gotten angry, thus leading to this situation. "Shut up! Just shut up! You're always the center of attention, I always get forgotten! I hate you! Don't talk to me!"

Io lifted up Callisto's backpack and hauled it home with her, knowing her sister would cry if her pretty unicorn bag became soaked with mud. Callisto rose, tears drifting down her cheeks as she made the soggy trek back towards their house alone.

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




At the news of what happened to Lita, Io made a noise of surprise. "Oh, Lita was scrapped? A virus? You know what that means, right?" Fina wasn't an idiot, based on all of their knowledge, she knew what was going on. Did that silly Idol Unit not know what discretion was? Or did she simply have blind faith in the android Doctor? Well, then again it wasn't as if Fina had it in her to distrust Lady Reiss at all either. "Well, it's probably for the best." Fina felt a strange unintelligible emotion coming from the human in her programming. Fina tried to block it out, she had to focus on getting Minnie back alive, the reminiscence of a dead human had nothing to do with her. "All I ever did was drag her down anyways, Callisto's better off without being able to contact me."

At the news of what happened to Lita, Fina tilted her head. "Oh, Lita was scrapped?" She vocalized, remaining neutral about it because what else could she feel? "Perhaps the newer one will be better able to be protected than the previous one." Kidnapped twice in a row, it really was quite pathetic. Then again, that was Fina's own failure, wasn't it? "It's probably for the best, the virus may have been dangerous, or perhaps it could have spread to us if it wasn't caught." No, this wasn't important right now, she needed to save Minnie. Jace agreed to it but only because of her programming.

And then she felt a beep in her messaging system. Jarvis was contacting her. "My my, what a blunder. I wonder what Lady Reiss would say about this?" He was always a smarmy sort, even now. But Fina was a better fighter than he was, despite everything he was mostly good for domestic duties. "I have no battery left after defeating CorpSec's Combat Unit." Fina reported in a lame attempt to defend herself. "Repair me quick, I have to find Minnie." Jarvis's smile grew more threatening as his video image grew closer. "I can hardly believe this. Do you really think Lady Reiss wouldn't just scrap you after a mistake like this?" Fina sure hoped that she wouldn't be disposed of. Wasn't the Flock supposed to accept the useless and worthless? "I'll be there in two minutes. Do try not to die accidentally while charging, Fina."

❝Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Jace nodded, "The Doc said it was really infectious, which was why she had to get rid of basically her entire program." Lies, it was all lies, but Jace didn't know, Doctor Grover was the one person not on her registry. The combat unit's brow furrowed. "Are you inferring that it's my fault she got scrapped?" There was a hint of anger in Jace's voice. It wasn't her fault her idiot charge was kidnapped twice, both times by Fina's doing. "Maybe it'll be safer for her not to have a private channel with you all things considered?" The one to kidnap her the first time was Fina and the one who failed to protect her the second too, was Fina. The topic changed quickly and Jace seemed to calm, finishing her pudding. "Don't tell him I said this, but I think Jarvis gave it to her when he was tinkering around in her programming. I don't trust that android, he's fishy."

Speak of the devil, a call was patching in. Jace was silent for the most part, only doing her part in allowing Jarvis into the building. "When you have a trail, call me. I don't want to leave Lita if I don't have to." Jace set up a channel for them to speak on other than the emergency broadcast. All Fina had to do was accept the invitation to open a chat room. "Jarvis, take care not to be too rough with her." He nodded, no doubt saving his sass because he was on Jace's turf now. "Will do, goodnight Jace, Lady Reiss sends her regards and extends them to Lita." Jace nodded, shutting the door behind them. She set up the alarm and went into Lita's room to make sure that her charge was still sound asleep. Yup, the android hadn't so much as stirred in power save mode. Jace headed to her own charging pod, checking the traps along the way before plugging herself in.

"Io! Io! Look! I made you a picture today in art!" Callisto giggled with glee. Io blushed an looked down at the ground. "I made you a picture too," the older twin said, the two of them exchanging their work. "Wow Io, I love it! Is this Scruffles?" Io nodded, Callisto had painted her a flower. The two sisters walked to the school bus together, holding hands as they always did. "Ew, weirdos, my Mom says when girls hold hands it's because they're in love!" Callisto giggled, not deterred by the other school children. "Io and I are in love! Mommy says that when you love your family, you hold hands so you never have to separate!" But as Callisto spoke those words, Io's hand slipped out of her's. Confused, Callisto looked around, the space becoming dark.

"Hello Lita."

Lita looked around, a girl stepping out of the shadows. "You-you're the one in those dreams."

"Yes, those are my memories." Her smile was gentle, sad even. "I see them every night, I replay my mistakes, the happiest and saddest moments of my life. In a sense, those are your memories too, since you are me." Lita recoiled, taking a step back. "I'm not you," she said softly. "Stay away from me," Callisto shook her head, blonde hair bouncing as she walked forward, closing the space between them. "I don't want your body Lita, I don't want your mind." Her smile was genuine, "I just want to save my sister."

❝Take a breath, a leap of faith to the deep unknown.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#B21212 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #1485CC

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




Leaving Jace behind for now, the hunt was on. They had no choice, they had to find the enemy now. "Here, I'll play it for you." Fina grimaced, she didn't want Jarvis's help, this was just so idiotic on so many levels. She was the Spear of the Reiss Family, it was her job to vanquish anyone that got in their way! So why was it like this, why was she so pathetic that she couldn't even save Minnie at all? "I see, a new enemy. A better model than you, apparently." Fina grimaced as they flew, her grappling hooks broken so they had to rely on Jarvis's for now to traverse the city. "It was because I was out of battery, that's the only reason I lost!" If she'd been at full charge doubtlessly she could have won.

Well she only did have enough time to get to half charge, so even this was risky. But Minnie needed her medicine, if she didn't get it the damage might just be irreversible. No one knew what she was sick with, no doctors were able to find out what was wrong with her. She had gone to dozens of the best doctors in the land, but in the end they'd all been stumped. "So, how are we going to track this so-called Stealth Unit anyways?" Fina had an idea. It was a faint one, but as a Stealth Unit she knew the weakness to Stealth Mode. It was a secret, but for now she had to share it with this Household Unit, no matter how frustrating. "Hack into the camera data and follow a trail of broken static." Since the Stealth Field broke any cameras aimed at it, that was one way to follow the trail. And in a highly technological city like this, there was obviously surveillance everywhere.

So they followed the trail left behind by the Stealth Field... only to find something strange. "It ends here, you useless Stealth Unit." Jarvis chuckled at the sight. "Here we are, at Tower Records. What could possibly be going on?"

...

Of course Stealth Units knew their weakness. How else do you think this trap could be laid? By taking the hostage back to the secret hiding place using blind spots in the city's surveillance without Stealth Mode, he could use Stealth Mode to return to Tower Records. The very moment Fina and Jarvis made their leave and after Jace plugged herself in to be charged, the White Mask attacked, setting off an alarm - it was set up so that if a camera broke because of a Stealth Field's autoprotection, it would beep to alert that a Stealth Unit was here. Finding this to be entertaining, the White Mask android drew his Viboblade, dashing over to hold it right over little Lita's hard drive.

In a deep voice, the White Mask android spoke. "Combat Unit, break your Hard Drive or I'll break hers."

❝Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me," Jace kicked the vibroblade out of the stealth unit's grip, hands in her pockets. "I had a feeling something was up when the paper on the window wasn't in its place." An old trick, but a good one. "I'm sure you must have heard me tell Fina before to not wake me charge up, or there would be hell to pay." A compartment opened up in her arm, Jace removing an electric dagger that buzzed threateningly. Sure, stealth units were made to jump around from place to place with speedy movements, but combat units were built to deal heavy blows and there was no stopping Jace from fighting against another android. "I knew once Minnie was taken, it was only a matter of time before you came to take Lita next."

Jace had, had an inkling of course and that was why she had tripped her own alarm. Red lights began to flash around them; Lita remained in power save mode, completely unaware of everything that was happening. "So white masked android, who are you working for?" Jace dealt another kick to the side, sending him flying into the pretty, glittery mirror. "And what are you aiming at? Kidnapping idols? Destroying the competition? Is it a rival record company?" Jace wouldn't put it past those bastards at one of the other record labels to hire a stealth unit to take them out. Lita was revolutionary, it made sense to want to destroy her hard drive, but Minnie Reiss? A harmless little human? That was where Jace was puzzled. Was it because of the connections to her Mother? Or some other, underlying cause?

"Don't take me for a fool!" She brought down the blade into his shoulder, the electricity zapping the stealth unit. "Your registration number is no longer concealed," Jace grinned. She pinned his hand beneath her foot, the security team stomping up the stairs and bursting into their apartment. Lita rubbed her eyes, glancing around the room at the broken mirror and scattered glass. Her vibrant orbs widened in both surprise and horror. "Jace, who is that? What's going on?" Lita inquired, not frightened per say, but startled by all of the commotion that had taken place. "Nothing Lita, go back to charging. It's all taken care of," Jace would get to the bottom of this and if the android didn't, then the security team of humans definitely would.

After all, the android couldn't hurt humans, it was in the android bylaws, engraved into their programming, a fail-safe of sorts. "Who is this android? How did he get in here?" She asked, disregarding the instructions. "Lita!" Jace snapped, "Not now! go back to sleep!" Lita drew back and nodded hesitantly, swallowing hard. "A-alright, engaging power save mode," and with that, Lita promptly went back to sleep.

❝Take a breath, a leap of faith to the deep unknown.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#B21212 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #1485CC

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




"I'm under orders not to reveal information." The White Masked android said under said mask, still holding Lita firm. Jace was a Combat Unit, and Stealth Units should never enter direct combat with one, especially one whose charge was endangered. "But my Master fights for Justice." Jace attacked, electric dagger sticking in, his hand pinned under her foot. His registration umber was no longer masked, but that was okay since only Dr. Grover had the buyer's records and that information was to be kept confidential due to the contract between Grover and his master. "I'm afraid it won't be that easy." He delivered a sweeping kick, not enough to do damage, but enough to force Jace off of him. He did a flip, landing back and away as the security detail came. Of course, harming humans was out of the question, but that depended on your definition of harm.

A stream of armor-permeating pepper spray burst from the White Masked's shoulder pods, burning at the eyes of the humans. It was only temporary discomfort but it would be enough to disable them for now. "Well now, ta-ta for now. Dear Lita will have to meet with my Master some other time I suppose." It was time to leave, the grappling hooks were primed, firing out the window to another building's roof where he could make his escape for the time being. He prepared the shock absorbers and fired the second one, ready to flee to safety for the time being. Master was telling him to retreat for now, the mission was too dangerous. Jace would have to be calculated for.

"Registration complete." Fina muttered, glaring angrily before her as Jarvis picked her up. They had come too, Jarvis spouted a third hand to offer basic medical help tot he humans whose eyes were sprayed with irritants. "Black Jack, a model older than mine, but recently equipped with the latest upgrades. Has a higher grade hand-to-hand combat power and weaponry weight quotient than mine, but mine comes equipped with Artemis mode." Black Jack the White Mask was going to get away, but Fina wasn't going to allow that to happen. She wasn't going to be useless.

"Up you go, have a nice fall." Jarvis threw her at Black Jack as he rappelled out, and she twisted her body in midair to aim her legs to grapple against his waist. "You heard her, he's better in a close quarters fight than Fina." Jarvis shrugged as he told Jace this. "I'm sure Lita would appreciate her rival being returned safely. As for me? Well, I'm not one to fight, I'm too sophisticated for uncouth things as that." He smiled as Fina and Black Jack crashed through the window of the empty office building in front of them, rolling with the momentum into a cubicle wall. He delivered a punch to her face, kicking to knock her back but she kicked off the ceiling to shoot back at him, vibroblade buzzing intensely.

The Mask was still unfazed by all of this. "Just give up, you can't win against me. Project FAYE is designed for traps and tricks, while my own Project GALE is designed to fight nearly on par with Combat Units." Fina's optical sensors were nearly glowing. "I don't care." She hissed, stabbing her vibroblade down but he grabbed her wrist, tearing it off with his greater rotor strength. "I won't give up until you give Minnie back!"

❝Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.❞

Jace ground her her teeth, jumping back. She wasn't going to allow him to touch Lita, Jace had already lost her charge too many times, she wasn't going to let Lita be taken for a third round of kidnap and torture by unknown sources. Especially since the first two times had nothing to do with Lita anyhow. "I should stop letting Fina drag me into this," Jace muttered as security burst into the space. "That's harming them!" Jace cried, her eyes burning, but not enough to stop her from stabbing the stealth unit in the thigh. The door burst open, Jarvis and Fina returning to the scene of the crime as Jace did her best to assist the humans who had been sprayed in the face. "Get him!" Jace cried as the masked stealth unit attempted to zip off. Jarvis offered to remain there, Jace heading out the window and jumping off of the ledge.

Her fingers grasped the next window over, broken glass digging into her hands. The android swung her legs over the side, righting herself once she was steady and brushing her joggers off. "I'm here to help!" Jace declared, "Two against one, that seems like a fair fight, int it?" Jace grinned, throwing her fists up in preparation of the brawl to be.

Back in the apartment, Lita peeled one eye open, then the other. What was that smell? The alarming scent had awoken the idol from her rest. "Jarvis, something is wrong." Lita said quietly, pulling her charging cord out of her neck. "The substance you are smelling is pepper spray, according to my database," he said, using milk to rub into the eyes of the enforcers to take away the sting. "I'm going to look," Lita rose from her bed and walked downstairs
In order to investigate. She threw on her bunny slippers and ran out the door to the elevator. Lita pressed the button, then decided it was taking too long and ran to the stairs.

Fire, that's what she was smelling. In the belly of the beast, a fire had sparked, setting the building alight. "Oh no," she had to warn Jarvis and the others. She had to tell Jace not to come back! Lita had to warn them!

Jace had come, now it was two against one. Fina lost a hand but she still had her other one and unlike humans, all androids were ambidextrous. "Jace is far stronger than you, so you should just give up and tell us where Minnie is." Black Jack did not seem to want to take that option though, they wouldn't be able to find Minnie if Black Jack's Master told him not to. And knowing from how Lady Reiss handles things, there's no way he would be permitted to tell them anything, even if it meant giving up his hard drive's life. Black Jack threw her wrist and hand at Jace and continued running. Fina latched on, extending the length of her other arm, the broken hook latching to his leg.

"Are you sure that was wise?" He kicked his leg and Fina went flying forward, through a cubicle wall, making it collapse to reveal another little corporate mini office for employees to type away at their computers. "Where is she? She needs her medicine!" She retracted her limb and grabbed at his head with her one hand left, transforming it into a spike to stab into his shoulder, trying to disable one of his own limbs. Jace was behind, there was a reason Black Jack was rushing now. All Fina had to do was slow him down for Jace to finish the job. "She will meet my Master, of course."

That wasn't an option. "That's harm! She needs her medicine!" Black Jack would have smiled if it wasn't for that mask over his smug face. "Well, Master has a plan for that, of course. I'm doing no harm to the little one." Fina grit her teeth, glaring daggers as she threw another punch in desperation. He grabbed her arm, twisted it and broke that hand off too, tossing her skidding away as he prepared to grapple to the next building. It was up to Jace now, Fina couldn't keep up the fight anymore.

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




"Your sacrifice won't be in vein!" Jace called as she tackled the android to the ground. Her fist pummeled him through the stomach, damaging his internal systems. "If he doesn't want to tell us who is boss is, we'll just have to extract it out of him."[/color] Jace said, full-well prepared to rip the hard drive out and murder an android in cold blood. Sure, androids were supposed to be loyal until death, but they still had some sense of self preservation. They knew when danger was afoot and their programming was supposed to respond in kind, although in situations like combat, such as these, when one was badly injured, like in Fina's case, the android could often override it per the wishes of their owner. For example, retrieving something at all costs, stopping at nothing to take someone down, etc. Jace used her legs to pin the android down and held his arms pinned to the ground. "Now, we'll ask you again. Where is Minnie Reiss?"

In the other building, Lita took the stairs up two floors at a time, nearly tripping and dislocating a leg. "Help!" She cried, "someone!" Lita wasn't sure how she had known, perhaps one electric device calling out to another, but she had sensed that something was off and had discovered a timer attached to an ominous looking box, set to blow, in the basement. The android pushed back into her apartment, the security team searching for any shred of evidence of the invader. Lita knelt down to fix her leg and make sure it wasn't jutting out, which it wasn't, then straightened and walked into her apartment wearing nothing but a slip and pink bunny slippers. "Everyone!"

Twenty men and women, all dressed in black with hearing pieces and sunglasses, turned to look at her. "There's a bomb in the basement, it's not safe here!" All at once they hustled around her, starting to move. Safety was their number one priority, getting the boss's investment out was the most important task they had been given. "Wait, is everyone out? Where's Charlie? Oh there you are Charlie! How are the kids?" The head of security nodded towards her, placing a blanket over Lita's body and lifting her off of her feet. "It's not safe here, we'll take you outside and call the police." Charlie replied, if that was even truly his name. They swept out of the building in what felt like a wave, exiting onto the road.

❝Take a breath, a leap of faith to the deep unknown.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#B21212 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #1485CC

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




Black Jack was taken to the floor of the office building, Jace too strong to beat away this time. He struggled, he fought, but he had already used much of his battery to beat Fina, let alone win a struggle against a fully charged and fresh to go Jace at full power. "Just give in and tell us!" Fina hissed, wires sparking where she used to have hands. "You couldn't even win on your own, you're just like me." Io taunted in her head and Fina grit her teeth, grinding them hard, something akin to anger flaring up inside of her. "I have orders. I don't have fear, either." Fina could feel it, there was something strange about this Stealth Unit. An odd signal was going off but she couldn't tell what it was.

"Where is she! Answer her, we need to find her!" Jace was about ready to murder this android and there were no rules in the android playbook against that, either. Fina would know, she's been responsible for many android deaths in her time, most of which through setting up traps. "Perhaps I'll see you two charming ladies again." Suddenly Black Jack went limp and that was when Fina finally pieced it together. "It's a a remote controlled shell! The real one is-" Fina smashed her head through the window, staring around to get a good view of the rooftops about them. Up this high, a fall would be definite death for any android, yet she had no fear as she leaned out with no supports to protect her. "There! He's getting away!" A remote controlled shell via a signal allowing for a specially-modified Stealth Unit to operate a second body through the first one. Which of course would mean the hard drive within this body was merely-

"Jace! Break open the torso before it's too late!" Fina instructed since with her hands gone and her battery low again she wasn't going to be able to do so herself. "The hard drive is a transceiver to receive the manual control signal from the main body. Get it out before it auto-deletes the data so we can still use it to track the real body." With the transceiver and luck, they'd be able to at least find the general location to where Minnie was being kept, assuming Black Jack was staying in the same place. Fina felt something like despair washing through her. "But to crack the encryption it'll take at least twelve hours to be able to track the signal through the protections." They wouldn't be able to save Minnie, not until tomorrow night.

A useless human was sighing in her android mind. "See, we're one and the same. Both of us, as useless as can be when it matters most."

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Jace punched through the body upon command, removing the receiver. She rose, cursing herself out for falling for the trap. It should have been obvious and yet, both she and Fina had failed to recognize that this android was simply a shell. "Damn it!" Now, Jace didn't care if Minnie Reiss was dead or alive, she cared, however, that she had let a target get away once she already had her sights on him. Jace was incredibly competitive and that fact that she and Fina had both lot in the game of capturing Black Jack, well, Jace didn't like it, not one bit. So what was she going to do? Well, whatever she could to help track down that stupid child so that she could win. "Be careful with it," Jace put it in Fina's pocket. Something behind them began to rumble, slowly sliding downwards. Jace turned, eyes widening as the apartment building began to fall down.

"Are all the humans okay?" Jarvis asked, clearly more concerned about them tan Fina. "I think so," Lita had scanned the building but hadn't found anything, if there was anyone else left, they must have concealed themselves quite well. Lita was confident, however, that there would be no humans hiding within all things considering. "I'm glad everyone is safe," she smiled in that dazzling way of her's, a strange rumbling shaking the ground. "It's coming down!" Someone yelled, tackling Lita to the ground and shielding her body with their own. Lita covered her ears, not wanting the sound to echo in her head.

Slowly it fell, the third part of building sinking into the second. It was surreal, just watching it from the outside was strange. "Ever see anything unusual?" He wanted to know.

He got away. He got away and Minnie was in danger now, wasn't she? But they couldn't do anything, there was no way to save them. And that was when it happened, behind them, the building with Lita seemed to utterly sink and vanish into nothing. "J-Jace!" Fina stood up, stumps still sparking. "Lita! You have to save her!" Fina hooked her legs to Jace so that she could help the no-handed anrdoid down. A trap had been set, Black Jack might just be one of their worst enemies yet. "He'll be back for Lita. Do you mind a temporary ownership transfer?" They would need to clear this with Lady Reiss too but for now her priority had to be here where she could be ready for another attack from Black Jack.

As the chaos was being handled, a pristine white limousnie appeared. Lady Reiss appeared, sunhat and white dress making her look as elegant as always. Dane stepped out, eyes wide in worry, as did two suited human bodyguards at her side to make sure no shenanigans happened. "Oh no, this is terrible." She shook her head as the employees of Tower Records were huddled up here, before even the authorities could come. "We have more cars, please come with us. The Flock will provide." Fina ran up, displaying her broken used-to-be arms. "Lady Reiss, I'm so sorry! Minnie, because of me, um, the Stealth Unit, Black Jack, I wasn't strong enough. It was all my fault." Misery seeped into her chest as she bowed, waiting to be told to self destruct as punishment for her gross failure as an android to protect her charge.

Lady Reiss looked at her as Dane rushed to help people in the two auto-driving hover cars behind the main limo. Not to the Flock of course, but a secondary site where they would be safe. "Don't worry. But with Dane protecting the Flock, do you mind if I put you under Jace's jurisdiction for the time being?" That would mean that with a few exceptions, Fina's job would be to follow Jace's orders and work under her to protect the secondary site. "So when Black Jack comes again, I can beat him." But what would happen to Minnie? What about her medicine? "Do try to find out who is behind this, my dear." Lady Reiss told her, patting Fina's head. "Then we can directly strike and take my precious daughter back."

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Lita was shaken to her very core. Her legs wouldn't cease their wobbling as the ground rumbled with the intensity of the explosion. Their city hadn't seen a terrorist attack of this scale in centuries. Lita quite frankly, wasn't sure what to do. She wasn't programmed to deal with this sort of situation, but she did know that fear was something very real that humans experienced and no doubt there was an abundance of it right now. Lita was supposed to bring joy to hearts, but she had a feeling that not even she could do something in this very moment. "Lita, we need to protect our investments." Of course, the owner of Tower Records was here, in the middle of the night, having been awoken by a phone call about the bomb in the building. "Therefore, for the time being, we are transferring ownership to Lady Reiss in the hopes that until this is straightened out, she can better protect you."

Lita nodded in understanding. She knelt to the ground, bowing. "I'm sorry sir! I've failed to bring smiles to the hearts of everyone in their time of need!" He pat her head, "it is not your fault." He said, taking her arm and leading her over to Lady Reiss, who had pulled up in a white limo, looking regal despite the fact that it was close to two in the morning. There was not one shred of remorse or apology on her face as she filled out the paperwork for a temporary transfer of ownership that could be annulled at anytime her original buyers deemed it safe for Lita to return. "What about Jace?" Lita inquired worriedly. "Jace will go with you, of course." Lita sighed in relief, she had been worried for her android friend.

Speak of the devil, Jace returned, another android with her, sparking where her arms used to be. Lita's eyes widened, things were happening that she didn't understand. "You're that dense, huh?" The voice in her head tsked, "Someone is going out of their way to hurt you." Who? And why? Jace turned towards Fina, who would need to have her arms repaired. "We got the external drive out of the remote controlled android," Jace retracted the piece out of her pocket, Jarvis taking it from her and turning it over in his hands. "I might be able to decode it, us repair androids have permission to infiltrate hard drives." Jarvis said as he tucked the piece of technology safely into his pocket.

"Oh right, the memory thing, um, Lita, this is Fina, Fina, this is Lita." The pink haired android smiled dazzlingly, waggling her fingers. "Hello there!" Dane looped an arm through the crook of her elbow. "And I'm Dane!" He grinned, "I'm supposed to take you to the limo to be sent back to the HQ."

"That's her! That's Io!" Callisto recognized, the sudden infiltrating voice bouncing around her head. "Io, it's me! I'm coming to save you!"

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




Thanks to Lita's efforts and a bit of help from Jarvis too, there weren't any casualties as a result to the final parting gift from Black Jack, their new big foe to deal with. And now all the survivors were being temporarily transferred into a new home of Lady Reiss's divining, a complex of four apartment buildings with a nice park in between them all, locked behind a gate with a fence so only authorized people could enter. "Welcome to the Reiss Four Towers." Dane said as he finished the drive. Jarvis would remain here too in order to help out as best as he could, though he would be busy with cracking the transceiver that was once a part of the Black Jack shell, the fake body so he wouldn't be able to do much.

They drove through the gate, one of Reiss's people on duty at the sentry booth opening it for clearance for the three limos to drive through. "Don't worry, your stay will be free of charge." This area was high quality, and many people were happy to rent their time away here, either as a living place or as a hotel. What, did you think Lady Reiss's fortune was by some other means, possibly nefarious? Of course not, she simply owned four apartment complexes, and this was one of the four, with quite the vacancies as well. "Jarvis, you'll also have to fix my hands." Fina told him as a reminder. "So I can help fight, too." If the housekeeping unit had any inclination of doing so he made no indication, happily ignoring her as he watched the white limo pull in.

"You'll all be safe here." Lady Reiss said, arms spread wide as everyone stepped out. "Think of it as Reiss charity." One by one the different families would be processed and they'd all receive a room. Of course near the top of the South Tower, the four androids would share a room together for maximum security. "Will Minnie be okay?" Fina asked again, and Dane clapped her on the shoulder. "Of course! She's tough!" He had a confident grin but that wasn't what Fina was talking about. "No! I mean, she needs her medicine! What if she gets worse? What if-" She didn't want to think about the worst case scenario. Was it odd that an android was so attached to a human? Was it simply programmed in or was it more genuine? "She will have to make do for now." Lady Reiss seemed mournful a she shook her head, eyes downcast. "There is nothing we can do for the moment to help her. One step at a time, my darling."

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




"I'm a bit confused about everything that happened," Lita admitted, scratching her cheek as they sat in the back of the limo, Jace's arm draped over her shoulder. "About what?" The combat unit inquired, glancing at her charge as Jarvis began to analyze Fina's arms. "Who attacked us? And why? Do I have enemies?" Lita seemed genuinely curious, wanting to know who would do such a thing, to go as far as to break into and blow up the record company building. "His name was Black Jack," Jarvis had already taken the techno bit with the information about the android on it so they could hopefully get a general location as to where Minnie was. "And?"

"That's all we know," Jace leaned back with a sigh. Her leg bounced, the android clearly on edge. The executives had gone back home, Tower Records, after all, was simply a company building. The only full time occupants were Lita and Jace, who would be moving to a new place now that ownership had been temporarily transferred to Lady Reiss. "I wonder what our new home will look like," Lita clapped her hands together, programmed to be ever the optimist. "Tone that smile down, will you?" Jace groaned sarcastically as the limo pulled up to the apartment complex they would be living in. It was one of the three, all of them attached via a sky bridge. The building was impressive, what with the amount of security needed just to walk into the front entryway. A bio metric scan ran over them, a haze of blue as it read their status.

"Welcome, Fina, Jarvis, Lita, and Jace," the building buzzed, the door opening up to release them into the foyer. A fountain greeted them in the center, colored water splashing to and fro in quite the display. "Show off," Jace scoffed as the glass elevator opened up to greet them. Lita bound inside, excited to see their new home. Jace followed her with a groan, gesturing for the other two to come quickly before the doors closed. "I'll have to put in an order for the parts for your arms," Jarvis informed Fina, already connecting to the net to get the pieces he needed shipped directly to them. "In the meanwhile, you should charge so your systems don't fry." They shot upwards, the elevator ride smooth. It was around 4AM now, the sun would be rising soon.

Their apartment was fully furnished, sleek, modern, stylish, but not Lita's taste. She wrinkled her nose at all of the black and white, it needed more color. "Jace, charge up, we're going shopping tomorrow." Lita declared, it would have to be after the press conference that was already scheduled to explain why the building had exploded. They wouldn't be able to cover it up, they would have to confirm, publicly, that Lita was under direct attack and whoever was behind it would need to come forth and put an end to the terrorism. They would also announce a nationwide search for the missing idol, Minnie Reiss and inform the public that if they knew anything, they had best report it.

|| A Demon's Fate || Within Temptation ||




With the East building now being assigned temporarily to serve as Tower Record's work building for the time being, everything seemed settled for the night. Fina woke up, and Jarvis was standing over her, the new parts all ready for installation. He even had a heat device to make sure her metal parts melt together properly to form a seamless surface for the plush layer to serve as skin. Dane was there too, drinking a juice pack. He wasn't supposed to be here, why wasn't he at the main building taking care of the rest of the Flock? "He was worried for you." Jarvis said with that snide smile of his. "He wants to make sure Io's okay." Dane looked at her and frowned, scratching the back of his head.

"I mean, that's not weird, right? She's my best friend, and this whole time I thought she was dead." Fina gave him a stare, not really needing to feign sleepiness the way some androids did at times upon first waking up after a night charge. Minnie Reiss was still gone, taken nefariously to who knows where. "It's not weird." Fina confirmed, not minding him. In fact she missed the easier days back when her only responsibilities were taking care of Minnie and watching Dane play with the Flock, studying the humans in a way. After meeting up with Jace and Lita, life had become more complicated for the poor Stealth Unit. "Io's inside me, but I am not her. I believe the human in the androids serve to give us higher level thinking normal artificial intelligence programming is incapable of." It gave them sentience, in a way. "I wonder if I have a human in me too." Jarvis wondered aloud, shaking his head. "Not that it really matters in the end, however."

Dane furrowed his brow as if trying to make sense of this. "She's not... in pain or anything, is she?" He asked nervously. "She was like me - we're both useless. We were always not good for anything and always causing trouble." Fina knew, she saw the memories vividly in her mind from Io. "I'm not." Io confirmed, which was good. "Callisto probably isn't either. Once Minnie's safe, just stay away from Lita from now on. Cali doesn't need me close by, not after what happened." Io was likely referring to their last talk that ended in a fight. She was a pitiful human, one who had given up on herself and any hope for a future. Fina reported Io's words and Dane seemed relieved. "That's right." The sheep boy affirmed. "We're useless, so we're better off helping other useless kids not be useless rather than dragging down the better people around us." Unlike Io and Dane, Callisto was one of the normals, a shining star of talent and skill. She wasn't useless, she had been magnificent.

"Why are you wasting time repairing me when you could be cracking Minnie's location?" Fina asked, getting to business. Dane finished his juice and had to go back to duty now so he bade them farewell, allowing the two androids their own talk. "I'm already halfway done cracking the encryption, you useless Stealth Unit." Jarvis smiled at her. "Because at least one of us is capable of doing the work assigned to us." Fina scoffed, optical sensors flashing dangerously. "Hmpf! Don't mistake me for the human in me." It seemed she had grown out of the meek setting in her Syntax Drive and grown into her own style of speech. "I won't be useless like her."

"Lita, reporting for duty!" The pink haired idol unit said brightly as she arrived at the news station. "Good morning Lita, thank you for joining us, you seem awfully chipper today." The news anchor said brightly despite the fact that the sun was just rising. "That's because I get to be here with all of you!" Jace cringed, no doubt used to the generic, sweetheart responses Lita tended to give. "Let's get you to your dressing room, we'll be starting the broadcast soon." She was shuffled off to a room with a gold star in front of it, her name displayed on the holographic lights that twinkled pleasantly as she entered. Jace walked in behind her, the hair and makeup team bustling around Lita in order to make her presentable for the holo vision screens across the nation. "Do you remember what you're supposed to say?" Jace inquired, taking a seat and opening up a pudding cup.

"Of course," Lita smiled, "I'm supposed to report the disappearance of Minnie Reiss and announce that anyone who has accurate information that leads to her recovery will be handsomely rewarded." Jace nodded, glad that Lita had been able to retain the information. "I'm not as dull as you think me to be," Lita said suddenly, surprising her escort. Jace nearly spit out her pudding, believing that Dr. Grover had erased all essence of the previous Lita. "What was that?" The combat unit inquired, to which Lita tilted her head innocently. "What do you mean?" She puckered up her lips for a swipe of gloss and once she was dressed, she was ready to go on. Just on time too, as they were calling Lita's name. Jace trailed behind her, following the glossy pink hair that bounced with curls held in by spray.

As Lita sat in one of the cushy armchairs, being interviewed, Callisto began to observe quietly from behind, noting how everyone seemed naturally drawn to her, their eyes holding vivid interest. "And then the building exploded!" Lita described, able to mimic human fear very well. "I was so scared! Luckily, Jace and I were reunited quickly and we were able to be moved to a safe location." Lita smiled, not giving away the location of course so as to keep herself safe. "If anyone knows the location of Minnie Reiss, or has any information that could help us find her, please contact Lady Reiss immediately." Lita said as instructed, genuine concern written across her expression. Once the broadcast was over, she rose, bowing to thank everyone and headed back towards the dressing room. "That was good, for a moment, I actually thought you were afraid." Jace said as they strolled to the secure room.

"I was," Lita replied simply. "But I wasn't afraid myself, I remember seeing fear on the faces of all those people outside." There was something else too, a niggling little voice in the back of her head coaxing her face into the proper expressions. Fear, happiness, surprise, these were emotions that couldn't simply be programmed into an robot with no soul or emotion. That was why Dr. Grover did what she believed she had to.

With Jace and Lita busy with their business, Jarvis fighting with the code in his attempts to crack it and reveal Black Jack's location, Fina decided she would go and listen to the city, to truth and lies in the hopes of finding some hint as to where Minnie Reiss could be. "Wait, no, that's stupid." Io chastised her, seeming very tired for some reason. "What do you mean?" Fina queried as she ensured no one was around to overhear an android talking to herself. "Don't just walk around aimlessly. Don't you want to save her?" Wasn't she supposed to be a useless human trash? Who did she think she was, anyways? "At least I have more of a clue than you. What kind of android gets attached to a human anyways?"

Fina didn't know. Was it a part of her programming that she was so clingy to the Requiem Angel? She did not know, but she knew enough that she was not going to ask Doctor Grover about the issue. she was quite aware that the robot doctor was just waiting for a chance to send herself and Lita to Android Jail. Well, perhaps Lita is safe - unless this is just a fake and the real one is already in android jail. "Then we'll have to break her out if that's the case." Io sounded oddly determined despite being a sheep of all sheep. "It's because Cali's there. I won't let her rot away in a jail, whatever android jail is." Anyways Fina didn't care about that, there was a more important matter at hand now. "That's right. Find Palladion. He seems fishy, what's this condition he talked about with Min before?"

It wasn't hard to get a meeting with Charles Palladion. After walking into the Dazzle Delight's Company Building, the secretary girl who Fina realized was an android named Amie, cute and yellow, a Service Unit, one that's versatile enough to fill various clerical roles, was acting as the secretary. "Yes, Mr. Palladion had a feeling you would come, Fina. Please, take the elevator up and wait outside of his office. It is number 741." Fina nodded and entered the elevator that sucked her up towards to the sky, to the man who was for some reason waiting for her.

The Stealth Unit's eyes narrowed as the office door opened for her. "What in the heckles?" Io sounded stunned by what she saw. Charles Palladion in his aloha shirt and his ruffy braided tail welcomed her in, lines on his eyes as if he hadn't had enough sleep. "Welcome, Fina. I assume you're here because you're worried for Minnie?" Fina's eyes locked onto what he was holding in his hand. "So, please tell me why." Fina put her hand on his arm, closing the door behind her as she stepped into the office. "Why do you have a Black Jack mask in your hand?"

❝Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.❞

It wasn't over of course, once Lita had completed that interview, she had another one for a holo publisher that wanted the inside scoop as well, for those that didn't want to watch or missed the broadcast. It was a busy day, meeting one person after the next, giving them all the same, carefully worded story. After all, Lita wasn't allowed to confirm whether or not it had been a terrorist attack, an attempt on her life, or a ploy against the Tower Records company until she received permission. They also needed to figure out the reason as to why it had happened in the first place. For now, they all received the same explanation. Lita was scared, she knew something was off, there was a bomb in the basement, Lady Reis had come to offer her protection, they needed to find the still at large Minnie Reiss.

"You have a meeting with Idolish next, it's time to start recording the song." Jace reminded her, to which Lita smiled. "I'm so excited! My first real recording session!" That's right, as an android, Lita's takes were usually one and done. Sometimes she would need to come back in to help smooth out little kinks, or to hear how it sounded and make sure it meshed with her public persona, but since it was Lita's first time working with humans, no doubt there would be more than one session. They headed in the armored vehicle towards the traffic, their hover car driving itself to their destination. They wouldn't be meeting at Idolish's cafe or residential building, today was all business. Lita couldn't wait to present her song as well, her first original.

I'm sorry Lita, it's probably awful. Callisto seemed saddened, but Lita only shook her head with a smile, Jace watching her out of the corner of her eye. "What are you smiling at?" She inquired suspiciously. "I wrote my own song," Lita pulled her holo pad out of her bag and opened up the document to show Jace, who scrutinized it heavily. Even though she was in charge of protecting her, Jace wasn't actually a fan of Lita's music. Perhaps it was the android in her, or maybe it was just the way she was programmed, but Jace couldn't find the connection in it that many humans sought solace in. "Wow this is... decent," Jace seemed impressed and Lita giggled in response. "I knew you would like it!" She took the holo pad back and tucked it into her bag, hoping ttat she would get the approval of Tower Records to record it.

The recording session went far more smoothly than they had anticipated. As it turned out, Idolish and Lita seemed in tune to one another when recording, their voices melding nicely. They stopped a few times for water to quench their parched vocal chords, Lita partaking only because she liked the taste of the liquid. When today's session was over, Jace seemed relieved to head back to their apartment. Those boys were nice. They were clearly leering at you, Lita Callisto said, voice echoing in Lita's skull. Lita shook her head, "No, they're just being friendly."

Fina's eyes were narrowed, she was full of frustration. Charles Palladion was the producer that was willing to give Minnie a chance. And now here he was, possibly the one behind it all. In his hands was the exact same mask that Black Jack had, so what could this mean? That was what she was here to find out? "So why do you have that? And why didn't you try to hide it from me?" Sure, Fina wasn't strong like Jace, but she was quick and she knew a human's weak spots. Sure, she couldn't technically harm humans, but that rule was of a lower priority than her top priority, which was Minnie's protection at all costs. Palladion gave her a smile. "Because I found it. I wanted to help with the investigation."

She scanned him, her lie detectors on full blast. But as much as she examined him over and over again she was unable to detect the lie, the falsehood. Why? Why was he telling the truth? "Are you the one responsible?" She asked, eyes flashing, ever rotor ready for her to pounce on Palladion. "Are you the one who took her away?" This man was trouble, Fina should have known that he was not to be trusted! He was tricking her sensors somehow she knew it. "What was the condition you mentioned that she had to do?" Charles shook his head, placing the mask delicately back down on his desk. Despite the angry android up in his face Fina did not detect any fear in his eyes. "No, I'm not the one responsible for her disappearance." He said affably, sitting back down with a light tap of his shoe scuffing against the corner of the desk. "I'm trying to find out who's in charge of Black Jack."

"How do you know about him?" She didn't detect any lies on this end either. But still, something wasn't quite adding up. Not that Fina could figure that out, she was never one for smarts. "Hey, don't blame me for this. Just punch him out or something." No, she wasn't allowed to do that unless he was an enemy but her lie detectors couldn't spot anything. "I contacted her mother this morning, and she gave me this to investigate." He explained, still smiling fearlessly. It was arrogance, didn't he know Fina could beat him up if she was authorized to do so? "I want her found just as much as you do. Minnie's a good kid, she deserves to be safe." Fina relaxed her rotors, still not wanting to trust this man who dodged around her question of the condition.

But what could she do now? How was she going to find Minnie and save her? The poor silver maiden must be suffering horrible pain right now as her illness wracked hell on her body without the medication. This was all Fina's fault, she should have been more careful. "I'll keep moving forward." Fina decided, not having an interest in Palladion anymore. "Until she's safe and with me again." It'd be faster to jump out the window and continue the search and so that's what she did, her shock absorbing ankles allowing her to land without damage back on the pavement.

"I'm going to help with the investigation. Don't open the door for anyone, stay here, stay away from the windows." Jace instructed as she went to the door. "Bye, have fun! Be safe," Lita waved as Jace exited, locking the doors behind her. Lita settled on her bed, looking around her boring room. It was black and white, not a splash of color to be found. "We're just going to have to change that," she smiled as she set to work, putting on a pair of old clothes and beginning to prepare decorations. Are you sure you should be doing that? Callisto inquired pointedly. "Of course," Lita replied with a smile as she cut out pink hearts. "What else would I be doing?" Lita could practically feel the eye roll coming off of Callisto.

You could help with the investigation, or at least do something productive. Callisto suggested, clearly frustrated with the way that Lita chose to relax. "No, that's up for Jace and Fina to handle, that's not my job. I'm not a hacking unit, I'm not even a combat unit." Lita informed her mind reading companion. You can still try! Why are you just sitting around, playing with pink crepe paper? Well that was an easy thing to answer, because she wanted to decorate the space. "Jace told me to stay here and keep my nose out of it, so that's exactly what I'm going to do." Lita rose, grabbing an old pink, fur coat to turn into a seat cover for the vanity. Lita hummed one of her own songs as she worked, making sure her living space was the best, of the best. She wanted it to be perfectly cute of course, just like her.

Ugh, I can't believe we're doing this, Callisto complained, clearly tired of Lita's behavior. [color=#F54D70]"Say, Callisto, what's it like living in someone's head?"[color] Lita wanted to know as she sat down with her holo pad to make last minute corrections to her song, the ones that Jace had pointed out. She had no idea that Jace had an ear for music, she would have that her stuffy fluff bodyguard was boring in all aspects of life. Strange, I can hear both your thoughts and mine too, like thinking for two people, or when a lady is pregnant and can tell everything her child wants, I guess.

Re: The Eden Project

So I revived an old RP of mine over the weekend and it desperately needs new members. If you wouldn't mind taking a look, I would be very grateful.

Re: The Eden Project

That moment when you realize your character is 23 and everyone else is just a baby nugget O_O


Re: The Eden Project

    I hope you don't mind that I gave the meeting place a room number, I just needed a place where I could put him.


Re: The Eden Project

I think that's fine. As soon as you're done we can start.


Re: The Eden Project

I think I will manage, and in that case I think I would like to properly reserve the character!

Though, as for the type of demon I was thinking along the lines of a ‘Dybbuk’ demon? As in, they could possess people and other creep stuff in that sense, if that is allowed?
