Name
Jaxon Knight

Callsign
Frost

Age
28


Powers

Cyrokinesis: Long story short, Jaxon can manipulate ice. He can create ice through the moisture in the air and control it to his will. Scientifically, he can control the temperature of molecules within the air and create ice in any form that he pleases within reason of course.

  • Cold Energy Blasts: Projecting an ice ball from his hands that freezes objects on impact.
  • Frostbite: Upon contact whatever he touches freezes to an atomic level and can cause cellular disintegration.
  • Cyrokinetic Constructs Armor, Weapons and objects can be created. Jaxon's preference is creating dual ice swords similar in size to katanas. He also will cover his arms in hardened ice to increase his close combat effectiveness.

Role
Agent



Skills

Jaxon is a very effective close combat specialist. He has studied martial arts from a very young age and knows Silat, Shotokan, Tai-Kwon-Do and forms of Thai Kickboxing. Jaxon is also very effective with bladed weapons due to his knowledge of the martial arts. He has also trained extensively with hand guns and SBR rifles. He is best at home when doing Close-Quarters Combat with his firearms. Surprisingly, with this deadly arsenal Jaxon would prefer not to use them. He tries to handle things with a diplomatic attitude, making his persuasion skills very effective.

Personality

Jaxon is a man that has been affected by his different lifestyle. Growing up with his powers he caused much damage. Making him a very cautious individual, he is tactful and tries to think things through before committing any form of action. Some may say he is as cold as the ice that he controls. Jaxon may push things away or act like he doesnt care but deep down thats how he copes. He does like to joke, some may think at the most inappropriate times, but that is how he releases his internal tension. Jaxon is by the book and very honorable, he will never stab anyone in the back either figuratively or literally.


Bio

As far as Jaxon knows his parents were immigrants to the United States from Indonesia. After that he knows nothing of his biological family. Jaxon was seemingly abandoned as an infant and was shortly after adopted after being transferred from hospital to hospital for unknown reasons. As he grew up he started to recognize his powers, at times it seemed uncontrollable causing much damage. Jaxon was labeled as a freak growing up but his parents still loved him and decided to help him by teaching him martial arts. Which, to Jaxon's surprise, actually helped him control his body which in turn helped control his powers. Over time Jaxon joined the US Army so that he could protect those who couldn't protect themselves. He went into the Rangers then eventually the Special Forces. Here he stayed until the formation of the Powered Protection Agency. Jaxon heard that others like himself had been recruited into this agency. Through the PPA he learned the truth of who he was and learned to cope with his powers even more. Working with the others, the PPA had actually done much good. After years of working in the PPA, orders from the higher brass had alerted the Agents that there were more special humans. They were young and probably scared. The orders were to bring them in or if all else fails... to put them down. Jaxon will do what he can to avoid the latter at all costs. Cause he was once in their shoes.

Newton City, South Factory District, 1757 EST

Jaxon ran his fingers through his hair as he stood outside of the factory building. It was raining enough to where there was puddles forming on the ground as the water dripped from Jaxon's hair. He raised his right hand and pushed his Oakley's higher up onto the bridge of his nose. Jaxon always wore his sunglasses outside even during the rain. This may have affected his vision but hey, at least his eyes were protected if a random piece of debris sailed towards his eyes. Or a random bullet, those were increasing in frequency lately. Jaxon had a feeling a few more were going to come in the next few minutes, it kept his life interesting. But he would rather be hunting down drug-lords or terrorist cells than go after the "Specials" again. He lost enough, yet Jaxon doesn't have a lot to even begin with.

Jaxon flicked off the safety on his .357 Revolver, he wasn't here to admire the factory. He was more along the lines of "inspecting" it and when we say "inspecting" we mean taking down the drug lab that is located within the factory. Jaxon left his rifle back at base and just decided to roll his Chippia Rhino. He wasn't going to bring a firearm at all but its better to be safe than sorry. The Rhino is definitely not your run of the mill revolver. The barrel is located in the bottom cylinder instead of the top, scientifically the recoil is reduced significantly compared to most standard revolvers. Because of the lack of recoil accuracy is also raised, meaning tighter groupings and faster follow-up shots. It only holds 6 rounds in the cylinder but Jaxon has trained himself to reload pretty quickly, but then again its his sidearm. He shouldn't be pulling it out in a true-blue firefight.

Despite the soft sounds of the raindrops hitting the ground, Jaxon still heard the mechanical sound of a shotgun getting racked. He immediately looked up to the source of the sound and raised his left hand in a halting motion while pulling his Rhino with his right. Then a loud bang filled the air, almost simultaneously Jaxon concentrated on freezing the precipitation-filled air into a wall of solid ice. The 00 buck shot slammed into the 10 inch thick ice, absorbing most of the impact as pieces of ice flew into the air. "Well, there went the negotiations." Jaxon said out-loud as he aimed his Rhino at the source of the shotgun blast and fired one precise round taking down the shotgun holder. Then from within the building Jaxon heard someone yell with disgust,"WE'VE GOT A FREAK!!! This made Jaxon warm and fuzzy inside and he just wanted to hug whoever had said that... and freeze him.

Jaxon sprinted at the double door entry and knocked the doors off their hinges. According to PPA's intel there was 4 guys running this drug lab. They weren't any big time players but its better to knock them down before they started getting big-headed. There was 3 left and hopefully they wouldn't want to take a bullet either. As Jaxon flew into the building he ran into another guy with a shotgun, which looked like a Mossberg 500 but Jaxon wasnt really looking cause the druggie fired a surprised blast that hit the ceiling. Taking this chance Jaxon straightened his palm out and struck at the man's throat causing him to reel back clutching his throat as he dropped his shotgun in mid air. Jaxon caught the Mossberg and held the gun like a bat and cocked back his arms and made contact with the druggie's head. Breaking the stock and knocking out the druggie ice cold. Jaxon froze the shotgun and dropped it, as it hit the ground it shattered.

Jaxon tried to listen as best as he could, so that he could locate the other two goons. For a split second he heard some glass tinker together. Jaxon went into predator mode and went after the sound. He ran down a hall and kicked a door open, as the door flew open a shiny metal glint came flying towards Jaxon's face. He threw his head back and came missed the sharpened metal by inches. It turned out to be a machete and the skinny guy behind it looked pretty pissed. Just when it couldn't get any better the other goon showed up with a machete as well, except this guy looked like he could be playing football instead of dealing drugs. Now both goons were wildly swinging their machetes at Jaxon. He kept throwing his body back to miss the swings, but Jaxon had enough of this. As Jaxon leaned away from the latest barrage of blades he froze the ground so that Jaxon could fly back more and gain more distance. There was a wonderful side effect, the skinny thug slipped on the ice while the buff one was able to stay standing. Jaxon loosed a ball of ice at buff guy aimed specifically at the hand wielding the machete, as the ice made contact with buff guy's hand Jaxon sprinted and leapt into the air leading out his right knee so that it made contact with the thug's chest. There might have been a cracking sound but a medic was going to come soon anyways. Buffguy was shoved back by the intesity of the attack, Jaxon noticed skinny guy trying to get off the ground and Jaxon decided to reel back his right leg and gave the guy a real good soccer-like kick aimed at skinny's head. Jaxon's foot made contact with the man's head and knocked him out cold. Buff guy witnessed this, his jaw dropped and he turned to run. But Jaxon was going to bring this man in. Before anyone could blink Jaxon sent out an ice blast and froze the man's legs to the ground. Buffguy looked at Jaxon and plead with him."Let me go man! We will stop cooking up drugs! I swear! Jaxon nodded and froze the rest of him, non-lethally of course.

Jaxon finally looked around and noticed he was in the drug lab. He knew there was some crooked cops out there and he didn't want any of this to fall in any irresponsible hands. Without another word, he raised both of his hands and let out and ice blast throughout the room freezing all the equipment. He raised his right foot and let it slam on the ground shattering all the equipment. He turned around and walked back out of the building, he pulled out his phone and dialed the police department's number and asked for a unit to be dispatched to his location. He placed his phone back in his pocket and just enjoyed the rain on his face as he started walking to the West District of his beloved city.

Newton City

Tap..tap..tap was the rhythmic sound of a beak trying to lift up the rusty-looking window latch. It was truly too much work trying to change back to normal. Eventually a boasting caw came from her as the once silver latch popped out with a small ping as she hastily rolled the offending pin off onto the carpet. Her beady black and green eyes blinked once as now the real challenge appeared opening said window...or at least breaking it as a mischievous idea came to her head as the window was already cracking what was a few more taps to it? So began the familiar sound of tapping, a bit sharper than before as the window protested the attack with her yellow beak.


After several minutes there was a small flutter of wings as the window pane gave way down to the concrete below. A gust of window ruffled Rei's feathers pleasantly, as did the faint smell of rain as it pattered outside. Flapping her wings once or twice as the bird flew out into the darkness with not a single goal in mind. The humans below her rushed out their business eager to get out of the offending weather. All expect for a few humans that didn't even seem to mind the weather such as the familiar-looking human just strolling through the rain after getting off his phone.


Swooping down gracefully onto the man's head before cocking her head down into the man's face with a questioning look. Obviously Jaxon had been on a lead, now if it were one of the Targets that would have been a different story. The Bosses would be breathing down her neck if one of the Targets were sighted and she was protesting working just because of a feeble cold. Fluttering down to the man's shiny shoes as she croaked out a cry of delight as her reflection faintly came back to her jokingly pulling at the man's black laces in an effort to get an answer out of the quieter Agent. After successfully untying one lace, the bird quickly plopped back onto the man's head, carefully watching the man's hands so easily used to freeze others. That was experience she had yet to feel and wasn't keen on fixing that problem.

Newton City, 1810 EST

As Jaxon strolled through pouring rain on the sidewalk, his mind was wandering. Jaxon somehow found himself thinking about his best friend, his old partner, Ryker. This guy was a hoot, loud like a screaming monkey, tough as nails, always joking... but now those jokes have disappeared. The PPA became less humorous since Ryker met a sudden end. Jaxon let out a loud sigh as he continued to walk, allowing the rain to hit his face. Somehow, it soothed his emotions like a liquid balm. Jaxon noticed a light fluttering sound in the air and switched his thought process to focus on the sound. He noticed a little bird trying to fly through the air coming towards his location.

It was a cute little bird, to be exact it looked like a magpie. It was a familiar looking magpie actually. It plopped itself on Jaxon's head and looked at him with an inquisitive look. Jaxon chuckled, he normally liked his personal bubble but this little magpie really didn't bother him. He stopped walking and watched as the magpie fluttered down to his black boots that happened to be pretty shiny due to the rain. Jaxon watched as the magpie untied a bootlace, he chuckled again. Then the little feather-covered demon flew back up to the top of his head. Careful not to knock of the magpie Jaxon bent over to tie his boots. After he finished he rose his left arm and opened his palm, Jaxon focused on creating an umbrella made of ice. It really wasn't for him, it was more for his friend. Birds don't fly well when they're wet. The umbrella shielded Jaxon and his little buddy from the incoming rain.

" Hello Rei! Its a little wet to be flying around isn't it?"

A flurry of raindrops were shook from her feathered down as Rei safely huddled under the provided umbrella. Seconds later the air seemed to the change beoming heated. Her feathers puffed up from the sudden static in the air and quickly leapt off into a nearby alley. There were a few muttered swears coming from the darkness followed by the distinct sound of zipping. Moments later a human Rei stepped out of the alley with a glint in her eyes. Her attire wasn't exactly suited for the weather, but it did scream professional agent. In pair of black slacks and a white dress shirt covered by a comfortable looking business jacket as her shiny black shoes clicked against the pavement. The only thing that ruined this moment of professionalism was a loud sneeze followed by grumbled swears as she pressed a handkerchief against her running nose.

Quickly invading her co-workers personal space to stand under safety of the umbrella "Thank you for the obvious comment on the weather. Trust me I don't exactly enjoy gallivanting around in the rain after recovering from a cold. Unlike some people I know." Playfully jabbing him in the ribs with an elbow as her eyes widened once more as the air crackled with static "Something's up with the air. I think we may have a situation on our hands. Ready to go Jaxon. You lead, I don't want to get off guard by sneezing and getting blown up..". Her words were surprisingly relaxed if they weren't just about to go against someone capable of throwing lightning like the gods of old. Blood was starting to rush through her veins as it always did before a fight. Now as far as she could tell there was only one person considered hostile given their casual attitude of messing with the atmosphere. The only question remaining was who was the target? Were they a target..or some innocent?

Newton City

Jaxon had noticed Rei's feathers puff up as the smell of burnt ozone lingered within the air. Then Rei jumped off his head and flew into a nearby alley. After a few seconds she walked out in her human form dressed highly professionally. Jaxon actually kind of chuckled from seeing this. He looked down at his boots and his attire, Jaxon was in his field gear. Jaxon did wear a white dress shirt but after that, everything else seemed a little bit more tactical. Jaxon's pants were black 5.11 duty pants and a black LBX Armatus Plate Carrier with an Assaulter's Panel. He didn't particularly care to try and hide himself in the city, sure there was the MIA agents but Jaxon didn't care. He hoped someone would try to cause problems with him and to find the heartless murderers who took out Ryker and the Special little girl. But that's saved up anger for another day. Rei approached Jaxon again and said,"Thank you for the obvious comment on the weather. Trust me I don't exactly enjoy gallivanting around in the rain after recovering from a cold. Unlike some people I know." Then she jabbed Jaxon's ribs with her elbow, but his PC was covering that part of the body so he really didn't feel it. She continued,"Something's up with the air. I think we may have a situation on our hands. Ready to go Jaxon. You lead, I don't want to get off guard by sneezing and getting blown up.."

Jaxon nodded but he needed to clear this with Command first. If there was a huge incident going Jaxon didn't want to dive into it head first and get blown up. He clicked his PTT button for his radio and called in,"Operative Frost calling into Command, requesting permission to investigate abnormal activity in the West district. How copy?" After a few seconds his earpiece replied,"Frost this is Command, that is a negative on the West district request. Operative Briars is in pursuit of a target. Stand down Frost, he has it under control."

"Good copy Command, Frost out." Jaxon looked at Rei, smiled and said,"Looks like we are staying out of this one, comes straight from the Brass. In the mean time maybe we can recon out a different area... I've always kind of wanted to check out the Lake District, maybe get some sushi?" He chuckled and started making his way to the Lake District.

Chloe smiled up at him brightly as he pat her back. It was clear he wasn't used to the hug, but was making do for her sake. "Like I said, you can stay with me for as long as you need."He told her and she beamed. She was glad not to be alone anymore. She pulled away, not letting his clear discomfort bother her. He looked at her for awhile, seeming to be thinking something about her then turned. You hungry? I was about to go grab some food," He offered, looking over his shoulder at her. Chloe felt a rumble in her belly, she placed a hand there before nodding. "Mhm! I don't remember what food taste like." she said, clearly not hearing the oddness of the statement as she scurried up to him. "Hey, where'd the birdy go?" She asked, looking around seeing a few bird perched on power lines and atop buildings. "I liked the birdy..."

~Meanwhile~

"Trickshot, to Command, the target has made contact with a civilian...Orders?"
Lola said through her comm, as she watched the little girl speak to then proceed to hug a young Asian boy. Her mission was the follow the girl, Chloe. This girl meant a lot to the higher ups. She was 'Special' the said, but that hadn't want the girl dead, atleast not yet, as her powers hadn't surfaced yet, but the higher ups seemed to think this girl's gifts were awfully important, important enough to keep the girl alive for the time being.

"Command to Trickshot, orders are not to approach,"

Lola rolled her eyes. "Really? She thought with a sigh. "So then what the hell am I do out in the rain?" She said, probably breaking protocol but she didn't really care, she hated her time being wasted, especially babysitting.

"We have eyes on the target, regroup with Frost."

Lolly groaned. "Roger that...." she said and closed her eyes. Her skin shifted ad she turned her stealth mode off. This entire time, she was nothing but a reflection, the nanites in her blood having copied the backdrop so that she could follow the little girl without being noticed by a single person.

She'd been doing this for days, now, and the girl had done nothing but walked, and until now, hadn't said a word to anyone or thing. Lolly had to watch the girl fall off of a swing and could do nothing to help it.

Sometimes she really hated her job.
She touched her ear, and switched channels.
"Frost, Do you copy?, whats your 20?"

Jaxon made his way to the Lake District, why? He had no clue, he rarely went here and he felt peaceful when he did. Jaxon did deserve a break didn't he? He just took down a drug lab, single-handedly, in the rain and he only fired one bullet. Not too shabby if you asked him. He could see the lake and while normally its glass like surface looked so serene and quiet the rain made it become somethings else. The uncountable rain drops hit the lake all at varying times causing ripples and creating what looked like pure and utter chaos. The darkened sky didn't help the lake's situation. What normally felt peaceful became something erratic. Jaxon didn't mind, though, the droplets hitting the lake sounded like a symphony to his mind. It soothed him in a way. He just liked rain any way you look at it and he was very grateful that there wasn't a huge thunder storm. That would have taken away the pleasantness and replaced it with tension.

Right now, Jaxon was hungry. His stomach gave him a little growl to remind him that even powered Agents need sustenance. Jaxon actually forgets to eat and if it wasn't for his little assistant growling at him then he might skip meals throughout the day. Kind of like how he skipped lunch. He had an excuse for that though, he was following the lead on the drug lab. His stomach growled again. Jaxon patted his stomach and said out loud,"Patience."

There was a little sushi joint that was located near the harbors of the lake. This lake didn't contain the exotic fish for a Japanese delicacy but the owner figured the customers would like enjoying their fish if they could see water. Which he was entirely correct, the restaurant wasn't huge but it would frequently get packed. Today wasn't one of those days, which Jaxon highly appreciated.

He walked into the restaurant and made eye contact with the owner and nodded his head with a grin as he sat at his normal spot on the bar. Most people would freak out if they noticed a Federal Agent walking into their establishment with a loaded weapon. But Tashi knew Jaxon and considered him a friend. Jaxon was from Indonesia and Tashi from Japan, although they are two very different countries they're still Asian and that was something that Tashi appreciated cause he and Jaxon could relate on that level. Tashi smiled and welcomed his friend with his slight Japanese accent,"Jaxon my friend! I haven't seen you in a few weeks! Want the usual?" As he poured Jaxon a glass of water.

Jaxon sat down and smiled,"Yes Tashi, the usual would be wonderful."

"You got it, Snowflake! Edemame with a Las Vegas roll and a Salmon Sashimi coming right up! I'll get you some Miso soup as well, it'll be good for this weather!"

"Thanks Tash!" Jaxon placed his elbows on the table and cupped his hands together as he looked at the flat screen TV that was behind the bar. There was some news story about something happening in the West District but it seems like its being handled. Must have been the same thing that bugged out Rei. Jaxon looked at the local scenery, it was a tasteful sushi place. It wasn't tacky with its decoration, the owner focused on making his food authentic not the place.

"Frost, Do you copy?, whats your 20?" Lola's voice had entered Jaxon's ear through his ear piece. It didn't sound very urgent but he works with her and considers her a friend so he decided to reply back,"Frost to Trickshot, I'm currently at Tashi's place. Im a bit hungry. Want to join me? I'll buy."

"Frost to Trickshot, I'm currently at Tashi's place. Im a bit hungry. Want to join me? I'll buy." Lola had just reached her bike when she heard Jaxon's reply. She laughed. "You do realize how much I eat right...?" She said as she threw her leg over the seat, and revved up the engine. "Have Tashi order my usual, Kay?" she said before peeling off down the road.
Image

Jaxon was probably the more tolerable part of this job. He was friendly enough, and wasn't a complete perv, which was good, she had had enough of that before the nanties, her former employment had her face to face with men at their worst. Jaxon wasn't bad and he didn't mind paying for her meals, which given her nanties, and how they boosted her metabolism, making her have to eat and eat. She really appreciated that. That and he was friends with Tashi, who owned the best sushi joint in the world as far as Lolly was concerned.

It took her about 20 minutes before she reached Tashi's, and she was sure the whole world heard her baby purr as she roared up. she walked inside with all the confidence of a high paid actress, and gave a smirk when she saw him.
"Sup Bitches." she said as she took a seat, both Jaxon and Tashi would be use to Lolly's special brand of affection and shouldn't take any offense, she was who she was.

The sushi place was warm and inviting, a stark contrast to the gloomy outside. Unfortunately sushi had a tendency to not agree with her stomach in the long run as settled for just ordering some tea and basking in the comforting warmth. Her posture was relaxed as her eyes flickered shut as the warm liquid slid down her throat. The tea was a nice brand of jasmine with a perfect slice of lemon inside the heated drink. This fuzzy feeling made a faint grin appear on her face as she did a bit of people-watching, she wasn't much of a dinner partner. However at the reverent look on Jaxon's face as the man dug into his meal obviously required not a single word to describe it.

This tranquil atmosphere was interrupted by a few vulgar greetings as Lola slinked into the booth. Sliding just a bit further away from the newcomer as her smile faded away. Her hand tightened around her tea just little bit, Lola wasn't exactly her favorite person to even be around. The woman cocky attitude along with a ill-kept mouth just rubbed her the wrong way. As the scent of motor oil and gasoline hit her senses, Rei couldn't help but wrinkle her nose at the offending odor. All Agents knew the deep love that Lola had for that damn bike of hers. Regardless of how well-kept and maintained the vehicle was it still attracted way too much attention when it was revving down the street. Agents of their level should have known by now to keep a low-profile and to not attract attention unless it was required for in combat or emergency situations.

Tapping her fingers against the solid table before her as she inquired teasingly to Jaxon "Really now, you are going to pay for her? Prepare to kiss the contents of your wallet goodbye Jaxon.". Then again the prospect of footing anyone's bill in full was a foreign concept to her as Rei was quite frugal herself. This was reflected in the fact that her rooming situation was chosen to be in a seedy motel on purpose, low-cost and not flashy in the slightest. Anything was better than having to stay in a luxury hotel that began rending a wallet into nothing by the minute. Finishing off the remaining tea in her cup as she asked quietly "So have either of you seen any of our targets tonight?". Time was of the essence given the fact that who knew how long each target would stay in the city before getting wise enough to quickly move on.

Jaxon waited patiently for his food as Tashi went straight to work creating his masterpieces. The Japanese chef brought out three bowls of steaming miso soup, he must have heard Jaxon talk to Lola. Tashi placed a bowl in front of Rei and was about to place it in front of Jaxon but then he pulled it back. Jaxon was semi-surprised at this and looked up at his friend, Tash grinned and placed the miso back down onto the bar counter in front of him. Jaxon chuckled and slapped Tashi on his arm,"You're lucky I like you, Otaku!" Tashi laughed and went behind the bar, grabbed a pair of tongs and opened up a steamer to reveal a pile of green. To most people it looked like snow peas or over-sized green beans but to the food connoisseur, like Jaxon, it looked like steamed soybeans. Tashi filled up a small bowl of the delicious Japanese food and sprinkled some Himalayan salt over the top. He placed the edamame and an empty bowl on top of the display over the bar counter and chirped,"Hey snowflake!" Jaxon looked up as he took his first spoonful of the warm soup. He nodded and grabbed both bowls and placed it in-between himself and Rei on the bar counter. Tashi then went to work on the main course.

Jaxon offered to Rei,"Rei-Rei, feel free to have some!" He grabbed a piece of edamame and sucked on the salty exterior while also sucking out the soybeans located inside. They didn't have an in your face kind of flavor but the little green guys still tasted amazing to Jaxon. He place the edamame skin in the empty bowl and went back to work on his soup.

"Sup Bitches."

Jaxon turned his head slightly to see a tanned figure come strutting in as if she owned the place. Jaxon smiled and waved Lola over to the bar and motioned for the seat on his left with the bowl of miso waiting for her. Lola was somewhat of an acquired taste at first but Jaxon liked her. She was a free spirit but she fought for the good in life. That was something that Jaxon could really respect. He greeted her,"So yes Lolly, Ill pay for you but try not to go over 100 again... You're lucky I like your bike. He winked at her then turned his head to the right to look at Rei,"Since I just like you, period, I'll pay for whatever you want as well." Jaxon smiled at the girl. Most guys would have really killed to be sitting in the middle of two beautiful girls, Jaxon appreciated it but he wasn't going to try and mess anything up. Besides, he liked the single life too much.

"Really now, you are going to pay for her? Prepare to kiss the contents of your wallet goodbye Jaxon." Rei teased. Jaxon just chuckled,"That's why she is single!" He looked to his right to see if he got a reaction out of Lolly and laughed again.Rei asked,"So have either of you seen any of our targets tonight?" Jaxon drank down the rest of his soup and wiped his mouth with a napkin. He answered,"Sadly, no. I took down a meth lab but that's about it. We were told to stand down over in that West District and it looks like it escalated. Bad call from the brass if you'd ask me." Jaxon motioned up at the TV screen as images of a fight between a PPA agent and a few kids appeared, he continued,"[b]"But Im just a lowly grunt."

Tashi tapped the top of the display again to show the his latest masterpiece, the salmon sashimi.

"Tashi, you're an artist."

So yes Lolly, Ill pay for you but try not to go over 100 again... You're lucky I like your bike. Jaxon said with a wink after he waved her over, Lolly took a seat beside him. "I make no promises." She said, Her taste buds already prepared for the miso soup that was waiting for her. She snorted as if that was most ridiculous thing she'd ever heard. "Since I just like you, period, I'll pay for whatever you want as well." Jaxon smiled at the other girl.

Lolly really couldn't be bothered with Rei, the girl had a stick the size of Sky Needle shoved up her ass when it came to Lolly, and honestly, she didn't care. Most women didn't like her. Her confidence, made the less confident nervous.
"Really now, you are going to pay for her? Prepare to kiss the contents of your wallet goodbye Jaxon." Rei teased. Lolly sucked her teeth while Jaxon just chuckled, "That's why she is single!" He said, and looked at her. Lolly rolled her eyes. "Please...That's not why and you know it...especially considering, it's not my bike you like, It's watching my ass while I ride it." She told him, with a smirk as she parted her chopsticks, and prepared to eat. "Besides, I'm gonna marry, Tashi, The man's a flippin genius with this right here!" she said, dramatically blowing a kiss to the cook. Rei went on to change the subject.

Typical.

"So have either of you seen any of our targets tonight?" Jaxon answered, while Lolly began her meal. Despite the nanites that coursed through her, making her less and less human every day, Lolly learned enjoy the little things, like the satisfying feel of warm food in her belly after a long night of work in the rain . "Sadly, no. I took down a meth lab but that's about it. We were told to stand down over in that West District and it looks like it escalated. Bad call from the brass if you'd ask me." He said and Lolly frowned. "But Im just a lowly grunt." He said and Lolly snickered. There was a dirty joke just waiting for her just then, but she didn't say it for two reasons, one because she had a mouth full of Miso and two because her eyes had been on the screen.

Why the West District? What were they up to? And Why hadn't they wanted her to take the girl out. Not that she particularly wanted to do that, the kid was like 13, with the mind of an 11 year old, and she was actually dangerous with what they said she could do, so why?

Lolly didn't want to think about that too long, if the nanites began to freak out about it, and start calculating shit, the PPA would know it, they monitored her nanites closely. She wasn't exactly normal. The nanites only took to her because she too was one of them, only she didn't gain any abilities, at least nothing like these kids, but with all that they'd done to her as a child, something she herself couldn't remember, she was able to bond with the nanites, with limited side effects. Limited, not non-existent.

"That's just them being temperamental as always, I did my job, and was done, Go the rest of the night off for my troubles, What about you, Booboo Kitty? Catch any mice?" Lolly said with a grin, specifically to annoy her.

Lolly didn't particularly like anyone, Jaxon was tolerable, most days, Rei and the rest of the world irritated to hell out of her, so, really, she could take it personally, or as playful banter, Lolly really didn't care.

It was also to amuse Jaxon, She knew he got a kick out of their little back and forth, and hell the guy was paying for dinner, he deserved a little something.
