Let Them Alone

TeslaTornado
Kevin slips into Lab 7 unnoticed, and locks the door.

20:13
padri
Laura is in her lab.
20:13
padri
She feels she should go to the common room - find something for Bowe - but she can't stomach the proposition.
20:20
TeslaTornado
There's noise in Lab 7 again.
20:21
padri
Laura frowns. What is with that lab?
20:21
padri
And she's pretty sure that's not the kind of sounds rats make.
20:21
padri
She heads back out and down the hall.
20:21
TeslaTornado
It isn't. It sounds vaguely like something man-sized. So either very large rats, or… Something ain't right.
20:22
padri
Can she roll perception to see the evidence that doesn't point to rats?
20:22
TeslaTornado
It's rather obvious. She doesn't even have to roll—she can smell that something's up.
20:22

*** Shotgun|Away is now known as ShotgunFiend
20:23
padri
She opens the door. Doesn't even bother to knock. She doesn't want to warn whoever's inside.
20:23
TeslaTornado
Laura, no strange wave of forgetfulness this time.
20:24
TeslaTornado
But as soon as you're across the threshold, the door swings shut. You hear a deadbolt clack, and feel a ring of cold steel against your temple.
20:24
padri
Pdef?
20:24
padri
She shrieks.
20:24
TeslaTornado
It's not an attack, it's just kind of sitting there.
20:25
padri
Once she realizes she hasn't been hurt, she tries to move to look at it.
20:26
TeslaTornado
"Keep screaming. No-one is going to hear you in here."
20:26
TeslaTornado
The voice is affable, genteel, and British.
20:26
padri
*Also, she stopped screaming.
20:26
padri
Can she get out of the ring?
20:26

padri has no idea what's up with this ring.
20:26
TeslaTornado
That would be me trying to sound badass when I say that someone put a gun to Laura's head.
20:27
padri
Oh. Okay.
20:27
TeslaTornado

20:27
padri
Then she steps away from the gun and backs away from Kevin, terrified.
20:27
TeslaTornado
Kevin looks annoyed, but also… Pleased? He doesn't go after Laura.
20:28
padri
"What do you want?"
20:28
TeslaTornado
"To continue our previous conversation, Agent." He points toward two chairs situated in the far corner of the room.
20:29
padri
She looks, then goes and sits. This is not a comfy position to be in, but frankly, she prefers it to sitting across from Bowe.
20:30

TeslaTornado
Kevin takes two chipped ceramic mugs from a counter, and flips on a Bunsen burner, producing from one of the cabinets a heat-resistant beaker. He draws water from the tap into the beaker, then sets it on the burner.
20:31
padri
She watches.
20:31
TeslaTornado
He moves quickly and efficiently, wasting no time or energy with his efforts. He procures two tea bags from another cabinet and drops them into the empty mugs, then lowers himself into the seat across from Laura.
20:32
ShotgunFiend
Matt goes searching everywhere for Laura. Her (old) room, the commons, the cafe, her labs, and sighs when he fails to find her.
20:32
TeslaTornado
"Now then." His face is stern. "You are going to tell me everything that's happened to you in the last seventy-two hours."
20:33
ShotgunFiend
He stops out side of Laura's lab, looking around, almost wanting her to miraculously come down the hall.
20:34
padri
Her stuff is still in the lab, Matt.
20:34
padri
It looks like she's been working there.

20:34
ShotgunFiend
Matt idly glances over her stuff. He must've just missed her.
20:34
padri
She just looks at him for a moment. "I joined Omega-7. I was moved out of the Psi-7 hall, and Katie and I are no longer part of your MTF."
20:36
TeslaTornado
"That much is obvious to any idiot, even Pinkerton could have guessed that was the case." Kevin frowns. "You will tell me /everything/. I will be able to tell if you are lying, and I promise: whomever has told you to spy on me, and whatever they have threatened to do to you, or to your family: I will revisit it upon you /ten/ /thousand/ /fold/."
20:36
ShotgunFiend
Does Laura have some notepad or something open on her workstation?
20:37
TeslaTornado
He says it in that same polite, indifferent tone that he almost always has, and that makes it more terrifying.
20:37
padri
She might, Matt.
20:37
padri
She shakes her head. "I'm anomalous, Kevin. Bowe wanted me. So I joined him."
20:37
ShotgunFiend
Matt snoops. He's got a bad gut feeling. Soldiers learns early on to trust their insticnts.
20:37
ShotgunFiend

20:38
TeslaTornado
"Why does Bowe want you?"
20:39
padri
"Because I'm anomalous!" She's getting increasingly uncomfortable.
20:39
ShotgunFiend
If there is a notepad, Matt looks at it.
20:39
padri
It has notes.
20:40
padri
Sciency stuff.
20:40
padri
What you'd expect in her lab.
20:40
ShotgunFiend
He flips all the way to the back, and the front.
20:40
padri
More of the same.
20:40
ShotgunFiend
He sighs, and turns it back to the original page.
20:41
TeslaTornado
"If Bowe only wanted you because you're anomalous, we wouldn't be having this conversation. Bowe could have picked the idiot Frenchman or agent Tande if he were seeking anomalous candidates for O7." Kevin quietly withdraws a bullet from his pistol and loads it manually into the chamber of his pistol.
20:41
TeslaTornado
"Why /else/ does he want you."
20:41
TeslaTornado
(from his pocket*)
20:42
ShotgunFiend
Matt goes down the hall, knocking on the other lab doors. Surely the scientists keep in touch.
20:44
padri
Laura watches. She's at a loss for words.
20:44
ShotgunFiend
Assuming random NPCs answer with unsure responses, he knocks on Lab 7s door at some point.
20:44
ShotgunFiend
"Hello? Anybody there?"
20:45
TeslaTornado
Almost as if he's dusting a fly from his jacket, Kevin casually places the barrel of his gun beneath Laura's chin.
20:45
TeslaTornado
He raises one finger over his lips. «Quiet»
20:45
ShotgunFiend
"Hellloooo?" It definitely sounds like Matt.
20:45
padri
She doesn't make a sound.
20:46
TeslaTornado
Matt, you receive no answer.
20:46
padri
She goes all stiff at the feel of the gun.
20:46
ShotgunFiend
He tries the handle and sighs when he finds it locked.
20:46
TeslaTornado
Lab 7 remains silent, as it always has.
20:47
ShotgunFiend
"Damnit…" Can be heard quietly as well as receding footsteps.
20:47
padri
She quivers slightly.
20:47
TeslaTornado
Kevin remains unaffected. He draws back the hammer on his pistol. "You were saying."
20:48
padri
"I don't know. As far as I know, he /does/ want the others."
20:48

Her voice shakes.

He continues back down the hall.
20:50
TeslaTornado
"What for? And what is your part in all of this?" Kevin hasn't moved the gun in any direction.
20:51
padri
Her head is tilted back and she is sitting up as straight as she can in an idle attempt to get away. "It's just omega-7! He wants a team of … of super agents or something!"
20:52

*** GraemeCracker quit (Quit: CGI:IRC)
20:53
TeslaTornado
Kevin puts a foot forward. Laura feels hobnails pressed against the top of her foot. He squints. The finger slowly wraps around the trigger.
20:53
TeslaTornado
"You haven't finished answering my question."
20:53
TeslaTornado
"And your daughter may well end up an orphan if you continue being obstinate."
20:54
ShotgunFiend
Matt leans against the wall outside of Laura's lab, pinching the bridge of his nose. He sighs.
20:54
padri
She is terrified of you, Kevin. It shows in her face and her posture and her breath. "If I don't …" She swallows her words. She's not allowed to say.
20:55
TeslaTornado
Kevin pushes the gun barrel a bit harder. "If you don't, /what/."
20:56
padri
She's crying, Kevin. "Bowe …"
20:56
TeslaTornado
"Bowe. *What.*"
20:56
TeslaTornado
(*What*.)
20:57
padri
"Please…" She's desperate. "Kevin, if you kill me, get Katie out of here."
21:00
TeslaTornado
Kevin pauses. He lowers the gun. "Now was that so difficult?" He moves towards the flask, which is now boiling. He puts his gun on the counter and produces a pair of crucible tongs, pouring the boiling water into the two mugs. He puts the beaker down and switches off the Bunsen burner, carrying the two mugs of tea back to the chairs.
21:00
TeslaTornado
He offers one to Laura.
21:00
padri
Laura doesn't take it.
21:00
padri
She watches him like a dear in headlights watches the oncoming car.
21:01
padri
"I won't say another word."

21:01

Kevin sets it on the counter next to her and sits down again. "You have my word that as long as I am alive, General Bowe will never lay a hand on Katie. But there are terms to this agreement."
21:02
padri
She just watches him.
21:02
TeslaTornado
"If you do not agree to them, I cannot guarantee your daughter's safety."
21:02
padri
~No one can guarantee my daughter's safety.~
21:03
TeslaTornado
Kevin gives her a Look. "Bowe is a man. I am a ghost. You cannot harm a ghost, Agent Moodie. On my word, Bowe will never lay a hand on Katie."
21:04
padri
She still says nothing.
21:04
TeslaTornado
"In return, you heed what I am about to say to the letter. Are we clear?"
21:05
padri
She's definitely listening, Kevin.
21:05
TeslaTornado
Kevin doesn't want listening. He wants confirmation. "Are. We. Clear. Agent Moodie."
21:06

*** DrSavage quit (Ping timeout: 183 seconds)
21:06
padri
She looks to his gun. Until he threatens Katie, she can't say anything. Saying anything could anger Bowe.
21:07
TeslaTornado
Kevin looks to Laura looking to the pistol. "There's one bullet. One bullet will not stop me. And then nothing will stand between the General and your daughter."
21:07
TeslaTornado
"If you shoot me, you lose your best chance at protecting her."
21:08
padri
She shakes her head. It wasn't what she was thinking.

TeslaTornado
"This room is sound-dampened, so anything you report to Bowe from this conversation is insubstantiated. The terms of this agreement will never leave this room. You are to report to me everything that Bowe may tell you of his plans, and in return I will defend Katie."

21:13
padri
"I can't. Kevin, I can't. Please, just trust Bowe." She doesn't seem to, though.
21:13
TeslaTornado
"How am I supposed to trust him when you don't even trust him?"

21:16
padri
"Please, Kevin. Please."
21:17
TeslaTornado
Kevin squints at Laura. "You may as put the bullet between your daughter's eyes yourself, then." He walks to the counter, takes his pistol and offers it, butt-first, to her.
21:17

Sobbing and everything.
21:18
padri
"…I already have." She's /this/ far from crying.
21:18
TeslaTornado
Kevin remains stone-faced. He continues holding the pistol. "Go on then. End her life. It'd be more merciful than whatever Bowe could do to her."
21:19
padri
She buries her face in her arms and sobs. She believes him completely.
21:19
TeslaTornado
Kevin doesn't move. "Do we have an agreement?"
21:20
padri
"I can't …"
21:21
padri
It's not really much of a leap to figure out Bowe's truly terrifying if his hold on her is enough to keep her from talking to you after this encounter, Kevin.
21:21
TeslaTornado
Kevin isn't scared of any man on the planet. Not any more.
21:22
TeslaTornado
"Laura. Look at me and tell me that I am not capable of backing up every word I have said with action."
21:23
padri
She doesn't. She doesn't say anything. She just sobs.
21:24
TeslaTornado
Kevin sits. And he waits.
21:26

Matt meanwhile, waits outside of Laura's lab. She's bound to come back soon enough.
21:27

She prays that Katie will make it out of this site; she prays that Bowe will not find her daughter.
21:33

She looks up to Kevin. "Please. Please get Katie away. Please."
21:33
TeslaTornado
Kevin raises the pistol. "That's my intention."
21:35

She nods, comforted.
21:37

"Where she's going, no-one will find her."

Your knife embeds itself in the kitchen counter, digging in enough to bury the tip.
22:00
ShotgunFiend
Knife is embedded in flesh, to some extent.
22:00
ShotgunFiend
Or
22:00
ShotgunFiend
That

Abe walks her out of the lab.

"Come on. Let's get you some fresh air."
22:01
TeslaTornado
Matt, there's a clunk from beneath that counter. Anyone who isn't paying attention or is otherwise occupied didn't hear it, but…
22:01
Riemann
Hill stands slowly, watching Matt's activities
22:01

*** Proto_Lost joined #origins-ic3
22:01
Riemann
Up to Tesla if he notices anything
22:01
ShotgunFiend
Matt is focused solely on that corner. Laura has been extracted, he takes a closer look, rifle raised.
22:01
TeslaTornado
Hill, you hear a clunk.
22:01
ShotgunFiend
Solely on that area, anyway.
22:01
Riemann
~Ghost?~
22:01
Wogglebug
Abe takes Laura to outside, where things are peaceful.
22:02
Riemann
Hill focuses his broken attention on the corner as well
22:02
padri
She's hyperventalating. She calms a little on the way outside.
22:02
ShotgunFiend
"If someone's there, show yourself /now/ or I will have no problem opening fire."
22:02
Wogglebug
(Go to 2)

22:02
TeslaTornado
No response.
22:03
Riemann
"I have 3 ounces of octogen. That's about… 10 times more powerful than TNT?"
22:03
Riemann
"I have no problem blowing up a couple pieces of furniture."
22:03
TeslaTornado
Stiiiiill nothing.
22:04
Riemann
Hill pulls out a rather tiny explosive, and looks at it in his hands
22:04

*** ShotgunFiend_ joined #origins-ic3
22:04
Riemann
"What do you think, Matt?"
22:04
ShotgunFiend_
Matt glances briefly to Hill. "Tell me I'm not hallucinating."
22:04
Riemann
"I hear it too."
22:05

*** ShotgunFiend quit (NickServ (GHOST command used by ShotgunFiend_))
22:05

*** ShotgunFiend_ is now known as ShotgunFiend
22:05
ShotgunFiend
"I think I'm suspicious as hell. Go find another guard."
22:06
Riemann
Hill hands him the tiny explosive and the detonator
22:06
Riemann
He then departs to find a guard
22:06
ShotgunFiend
Matt lets his rifle fall to his side on its sling. "What, you want me to blow up the room?"
22:06
TeslaTornado
There isn't a sound from the cupboards.
22:07
ShotgunFiend
He shoves them into his pocket (gently) and raises his rifle again, waiting for Hill to return.
22:07
Riemann
"It's only enough to break some furniture. Won't damage the room if detonated inside thos cupboards."
22:08
ShotgunFiend
"Right…"
22:08
TeslaTornado
There's another clunk. It's slightly catty-corner to the previous one.
22:09
ShotgunFiend
Matt twitches his sights to the source of the sound.
22:10
ShotgunFiend
~Damnit Hill, where are you?~
22:10
TeslaTornado
A cupboard door opens behind you and out rolls what looks like a home-made smoke bomb.
22:10
TeslaTornado
At least that's what you assume it is, considering that it looks like a Folger's can spewing thick, white smoke.
22:10
ShotgunFiend
Matt covers his face instictively with the crook of his arm and he backs the fuck out of the room.
22:10
ShotgunFiend
*cough*
22:11
ShotgunFiend
"HILL! Where the fuck you at, man?!"
22:11
Riemann
Where he sees Hill and a guard in the distance!
22:11
ShotgunFiend
*cough cough*
22:11
TeslaTornado
There's a flash of motion just as you cover your eyes. You get shoulder-checked as something passes you in the smoke, moving very quickly.
22:11
Riemann
But far enough that it still gives Tesla freedom!
22:11

*** Daedalus quit (Ping timeout: 181 seconds)
22:12
ShotgunFiend
"Shit!" Matt attempts to extend a leg to trip whatever runs passed him.
22:12
TeslaTornado
4df+5 Jack be nimble
22:12
Glacon
TeslaTornado: Jack be nimble: 9 (4df+5=+, +, +, +)
22:12
ShotgunFiend
welp
22:12
ShotgunFiend
Matt has 4 agi
22:12
ShotgunFiend
You win

22:13

YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS
22:13

22:13
TeslaTornado
Matt, as you extend your leg, the figure not only avoids your trip, but counters it, spinning you around and covering his own exit with your body.
22:14
gumbal1
(this deserves something real special)
22:14
TeslaTornado
You stumble into Hill and the guard just as they arrive at the scene, knocking them over.
22:14
Riemann
wah'
22:14
ShotgunFiend
Matt hacking coughs into his arm.
22:14
padri
Also, you somehow get the both of you covered in shaving cream.
22:14
ShotgunFiend
"God fucking damnit."
22:14
ShotgunFiend
Matt falls on his ass.
22:15
ShotgunFiend
And bops his head on the wall
22:15
Riemann
Hill doesn't immediately get up. He simply rolls over, and stares at Matt
22:15
TeslaTornado
The whole affair looks like something from a Three Stooges comedy sketch.

22:16
Riemann
The look in his eyes is simply "why"
22:16
ShotgunFiend
Matt looks at Hill. "The fuck took you so long?"

22:16
Riemann
"Dramatic timing."

22:17
Riemann
Deadpan

22:17
ShotgunFiend
"Why… Why am I not surprised?" Matt pushes himself off the ground.
22:18
Riemann
Hill still doesn't get up, and instead just rolls, on the ground, back into Lab 6
