-in the car under the dead tree, waiting for Volume-
God, I hope she gets here soon... going all this way to pick up one Drac will look suspicious, no matter what story I put around it. I don't think anyone noticed it was me leaving, though... What'll I say to them about how late I am for work, though? I work for a friggin' pharmaceutical company; calling in sick would be ironic but unlikely...

Which road? Crap, there's multiple? Well, this one looks like a main one, I guess. It's the extension of Road 5 but I guess that wouldn't mean anything to you. It's got four lanes, but farther on I think it tapers off to two. Umm... -scouring for landmarks- It looks like there's a couple buildings farther on down the road. To your right, as you come out of Battery City. And the tree's not actually on the road, it's a little to the left.

Oh, good. Yeah, you get used to the city smell after a while, I guess. I got you a uniform, and I'm just gonna say the rest of your patrol got ghosted, and I'm taking you to tell one of the higher-ups about it. -laughs- In less dangerspeaky language, though.

I'd expect less Dangerspeak...even though you used ONE term. Not shiny. Be all fancy and proper-like, and I won't talk. Tell 'em that I got shot in the throat and can't talk or something. Better yet, shoot the Drac mask in the throat. And get me summa that fancy BLI spraypaint so I can build myself a scar. It'll be damn shiny...if I can get there without getting ghosted...or get there at all.

Hey! What do you expect, with me living in the city all the time? The only time I ever get to talk to you killjoys is on the radio, when I'm sure there's nobody listening. It'll take some time for me to get all into your shiny little terminologies. And you can shoot the Drac mask, if you want... but then how will I be taking you to talk to- of course! I'm just getting you somewhere there's paper. -pause- Sorry for rambling at you. It helps me work things out. And I guess it's good if you know the plan, too.

Don't give me paper. I haven't used normal people writing in AGES, just my scrawly scratches. But maybe I could pass that off as trauma...hmm...-gags again- I swear, that sterilized smell is gonna make me throw up. If you could figure out some wxy for me to stop smelling the smell, that would be slaughtamatically shiny. I'm about to start a cycle...in a bad wxy.

I wasn't planning on letting you at paper if I could help it, though trauma would be a great excuse for that. I dunno if Dracs can even get traumatized, though, with all those happy pills. And maybe we can pass off your constant gagging as some kind of injury. I don't suppose a good old piece of cloth over your face would help? Don't think Drac masks come with any protection, there users are all... 'stabilized' anyway...
-looks out window-
Crap, there's a car coming out of the city there... I'm just going to drive straight away from the road to make sure they don't see me.
(((Man, we're having so many missed connections today... whenever I get on and see you're on, you're always off before I can post...)))

Ah! My bandanna! -whips it out- I never wear it because it gets so HOT in the desert, but now's as good a time as any. It IS kinda milkshakey here. -ties bandanna on- Ah...smells like nostalgia. Good old 14-year-old me, thinking of all the stuff I'd need. Little non-shiny idiot--Oh! I hear a car coming here, too! Maybe I'm not that far off from you.

Don't do that- someone'll see and come investigate! -pulls over towards you- I see you, don't worry. The Drac uniform's in the back; I think it's a bit small for you, though... I- I couldn't get one in your size. Stealing from BLI's storehouses would put them on alert, and I don't want to do that until after we've rescued Connor...
Post by Volume Virus on May 1, 2011 18:49:40 GMT -5
-closes phone- Jeez, I was under the impression you were ghosting Dracs to get their uniforms and they have a freaking STOREHOUSE? I need to get with the damn times. Heya, Trap! -hugs- Long time, no see! Everything shiny?
Post by Happy Contraption on May 1, 2011 19:11:36 GMT -5
-hugs back- Volume, it's so good to see you... -releases you- It's nice to see someone not completely stiffed up on the meds. And yeah, where else do you think the Dracs get 'em in the first place? -laughs nervously- You've got too high an opinion of me, sister. I've never ghosted anyone... I hope I'll be able to, if- when I need to.
Well, everything's just the same in the city... eat, sleep, sneak into the tower, worry about my sister... how are things in the zones? Is Blackie alright? I think I heard her in the background of your transmission...
