In the Underbelly [Richard, Keisha & Miku]:
"I would, guy has got me by the balls after all. Except this isn't a drill," Richard says looking at his unnaturally red hands before shaking his head and turning his attention back to the guys, "Psions busted in and set loose their pet psycho on us. You know Ember?"
Eric's mouth hangs open somewhat at this statement, almost losing him his cigarette as Terrance frowns slightly.
He shrugs, "Long story short, most of the school is in the bunker, two teachers are hospitalized, and god knows where the rest of Psions are. We're looking for the old man."
"Good news? Ember's down and we got an exit for you guys," Richard shrugs a thumb over his shoulder at Keshia, "All you got to do is come up with a beliveable story for how you guys got lost instead of winding up with us at the bunker."
The girl shook her head, ignoring the Albrighter comment for the moment. "Yeah, right now we don't know how many Psions are in the school, they're dangerous, like really dangerous and they tend to travel in a pack." she told them soberly.
"Pyscho Ms. !@#$ took out Mr. Archer and Mr. Ross. Not to mention, they also were responsible for the Albright break in a while ago." her strong language was a good indication of the seriousness of the situation. "This is the real !@#$ guys, and no game of super-powered king of the mountain in the Doom Room."
"If you want to go to the bunker, I'll be glad to take you. If you want to join us in the irritating of the Psions and finding the headmaster, also good." she grinned at the boys,
At the news of certain teachers being taken out by Ember, Eric lets out a quiet 'daaammnn' while Terrance puts away the cards and breaks the table down back into the wall, making it clear it's a kind of break station that has been built into the Underbelly. Then the two slackers share a look between themselves before Terrance speaks.
"We'll roll with you. It'll sound better that we saw some of the Psions and ducked in here before running into your crew." Eric nods in eager agreement as he digs in the front pocket of his hoodie to produce a high tech looking airbrush. "Sides, it might score us some points with the chicks if we tell 'em we were fightin' for the school." He grins a mischievous grin that shows he's already thinking of how to play this up for his own benefit.
