Zane opened one eye and looked towards the driver's seat with a raised eyebrow.
Jerking him around was unusual, but not entirely out of character for Mr Keller. At least from what he'd gathered he wasn't beyond letting one know who was in charge, but he wasn't exactly one to start problems. Showing interest in what he was doing, though, was entirely out of character.
In the entire time he'd been in the Project the only time they'd shared words that were directly related to the immediate moment was when Charlie had been talking to him. And even then Keller hadn't exactly spoke to him.
With the recent events and the sudden fear that they were to be under attack by a cadre of super villains he couldn't help but wonder if maybe AEGIS and Wainwright hadn't been overly paranoid. Maybe they'd just been looking in the wrong direction.
If they'd wanted to attack Project Freedom they'd have timed it to be done immediatly after Wuxia had been freed before the alarm could be raised. If they wanted to attack AEGIS they could have done so at any time, seeing as they'd easily walked out with a super villain without anybody batting an eye.
Except it didn't make sense. What value was there in infiltrating the jail when you already had somebody on the inside? It wasn't like there was anything of value that anybody'd want. At least nothing anybody knew
Zane lifted his head and opened his other eye, glancing out the window, "I'm planning on finishing that scanner for the Atoms. I promised that to them ages ago, I just never really had the time to make a second one. I suppose I still don't, but I have most of it done, and what's left shouldn't take long if I reuse some prototype parts I'd created for the original. Probably not much more than an hour."
"After that, I'll start working on the teleporter. If I can mesh that with the scanner we could be looking at an emergency escape device that can activate when a person is injured,"
He pauses remembering a story Charlie had told him, "Or when a building is about to fall on you."
<<::Zalman:: I need a hand here. Call it paranoia, but Mr Keller isn't acting like himself at the moment. Would you be able to do a quick scry on us just to see if it's him or not?>>
Zane lets out a mental sigh, <<I do believe I'm letting these people make me paranoid, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.>>
He passes along the address for Zalman's usage.
