Week 36: In which Darya freaks out.

Post  Darya Demeter on Sun Nov 04, 2012 8:58 pm

Darya couldn't quite believe how much stuff of hers was scattered around in various holding places. Hell, she couldn't believe she had this much stuff in the first place, and at the moment she had rented a lorry and was driving around Seoul, picking up stuff from the various storage places she was using after she left Oracle.

She climbed back into the cab, having just recovered her stock of various drugs (she kind of hoped she wouldn't have to use most of them again, but having the spare stock of nanores packs could be useful) when her internal AI blipped and alerted her to Ace's biosign sensor. Or, rather, the lack of one. It hadn't just flatlined, it had disappeared completely. Her knuckles turned white as she gripped the steering wheel so tightly the plastic began to deform slightly.

No...Ace, what? Is he...no, it would show a flatline if that happened right? Unless it was cult or...oh god, no, no, Ace, no...

Darya's thoughts descended into a malestrom of panic as she pulled out of the parking place with impressive speed for a lorry and headed towards Phoenix. Oracle HQ would be useless, but Phoenix may know where he was and what he was doing.

She barely noticed her PDA until the instistant buzzing got too loud for her to ignore, and she grabbed it aggressively and was about to throw it aside when she saw the message was from Han. "Ace is fine, just been EMP'd."

She read it over several times, before having to pull into a parking place again and leaning back into the seat, allowing her breathing to calm down. Ace was fine. Someone had just pulled a her. She giggled slightly in relief. Her boyfriend had just been hit by her favourite method of fighting. Straightening up, she pulled out and headed to Phoenix again. Ace would be going back there, and she decided she would wait for him.

Han drove back to Phoenix, Metal blaring from the stereo as Han drove, "singing" tunelessly the way back. He was in very high spirits, elated, almost, and certainly a lot happier then he had been in recent weeks. He fished a mint from out his belt and popped it in his mouth, wordlessly offering Ace one while he swung the SUV round the corner at high speed. Technically he was within the speed limit...but only barely.

It took Ace a moment to realise that he was being offered something. He wasn't realy listening to the radio or to Han's tuneless singing, he was just staring out of the window ahead. After a small while he noticed the offered packet.

"Oh. No thanks." He said dismissively and turned back to looking ahead.

Darya didn't want to go inside Phoenix, since she didn't like dealing with Xu, but hanging around outside Phoenix, given the number of enemies they had, seemed unwise, so pulling her hood around her, she hopped out of the lorry and headed towards the entrance, pausing as she saw the car pulling up, her various vision upgrades allowing her to easily identify the occupants.

As Ace left the car, she ran forward, grabbed him and hugged him with her agent level strength. She stopped there for a moment, before sighing. "Honestly. You make me worry too much." she said, gently into the smaller man's ear.

Han leaned out of the car. "You get my text Darya? Don't worry, I've got your boy's back." Han's voice was jocular and loud, but he shot Darya a reassuring look.

Xu, sitting in the back seat, opened his eyes and stopped his music when he felt the vehicle stop. He leant out of the window...and saw Darya. His face twitched slightly, and he didn't speak.

Although his own strength was significantly reduced Ace's ribs were more than strong enough to handle the hug. He returned it but even with lower strength accounted for it was clear he was not putting his all into the hug. His expression hadn't changed when he saw Darya, and although he was returning the gesture something defiantly seamed off with him. "I'm.. fine." he declared, non to convincingly. "But.. is this what you do to people? It's horrible."

Darya pulled back from the hug slightly, smiling gently. "Well, let me have a look at you then." she said, her third eye opening. Though most of Ace's body was covered by armor, she could see enough through just the head to tell that his ICE was still functioning. "It's not nearly as bad as it could have been, even with just EMP." she said, tilting her head to get a better viewpoint. "You just have to stick with it till you get to a cyberneticist to turn them back on. I could do it, but I'm not licensed, so..."

She put her arms Ace's shoulders again. "It could be worse. At least you're alive. When the biostatus disappeared...I..."

She pulled him back into a hug.
