Vivian finally made it to the Infirmary. Right at the door to the ER, there was a Life Saver standing there. "Yes, how may I--What the...?!" To his shock, he saw Vivian holding the bloody child in her arms. "He doesn't have much longer to live...He needs medical attention right away!" Vivian yelled. The Life Savor quickly took the boy from Vivian and opens the door. "Alright...please wait here miss. We will see what we can do..." he said as he rushed the boy in and closed the door.
Vivian took a big sigh and leaned on the wall. She noticed that the boy's blood was on her hands and arms. She took a wet wipe from the pack around her waste and started to wipe it off. She then started to ponder her thoughts. This Xeyon person...What does he know about Magnus? I'm not the only one hunting him down...? I still wonder. When the time comes when I face him, can I kill my own best friend...?

Tomas came in right after Vivian had handed the boy off and took a quick sigh of relief. If the Reploid does his job right then the boy will live to see another day. And deep in his heart he didn't want another person to die from stupid reasons. He looked at Vivian, judging her appearance in his mind. Vivian decided to drop everything and bring the boy here, whether that was a part of clever programming or sheer emotion, Tomas had to commend the Reploid. He took a deep sigh and clicked on the external speakers.
"Do you think the boy will live? His mother is really upset about the whole incident." Tomas said to Vivian hoping the conversation would calm whatever was affecting her.

While she was talking to Tomas, she kept a look out for the door. Vivian also remembered that Magnus is a Class A Maverick Hunter. If she can get all things done at once, it would release any stress but she was more concerned about the boy that was hit in her own affairs...

Tomas noticed her subtle change in movements and looked towards where she looked and nodded slowly. Whatever it was he could safely guess that she wasn't a part of the Maverick Hunters. That still didn't allow him to trust her in the slightest. He looked her over and back at the boy as the Reploid went to make sure a full recovery was in order. He took a deep breath and let it out explosively, still aware the speaker was on.
"Let's just say . . . i'm someone who is concerned . . . really can't tell you my name." He almost absentmindedly blanked out but he focused his attention back on the task at hand. "Tell me, how did the boy come into danger like that?"

Vivian heard as the Life Savers were operating on the boy. Vivian guessed she would be still here for a few more hours or so...

The statement of the name Magnus was almost met with hatred in her voice. He had to wonder what grudge she had against this Magnus person. He knew if he was going to get anywhere he was going to have to ask her. And with a disgusted sneer Thor entered to his mind-
"yeah, you do that, i'm going to take a nap." leaving with a mental eye roll.
Tomas shook his head and looked back at Vivian, making sure he had good eye contact with her. What he was about to ask was not only crucial, but it may send her into some unknown to him fury. But at the moment he had the chance to ask, and she was from around her so it wouldn't hurt to do his job and gain intelligence.
"Why are you looking for this Magnus character? what'd he do?"
Posted 06 December 2009 - 09:21 PM
He returned back to reality and looked back at Tomas. "Even though Magnus killed Scar, his ghost still haunts me. I believe that Scar had plans ahead of time if he was ever killed. Maybe a hired Assassin to keep tabs on me to make sure I kill Magnus. It's many possibilities but I can't take any chances, for my father's safety. Magnus was my childhood best friend. He too is a Cyborg like me. He has a more terrible past than me but it pains me to make him suffer more. I haven't lost my family but he lost his entire family. To be honest, I have no idea what I'm doing..." She said admittedly.
Some times had passed but they were still operating on the boy. Vivian continued to keep her eye on the door.

Tomas allowed this to process in her mind, allowed her to slowly digest it. He knew he was facing a human rather than a machine, which meant he had to slow down little by little. After a few minutes he took another sigh and looked at Vivian.
"Okay, listen i normally don't do this but i don't have any cash, a place to crash or anything else keeping me occupied. I wanted to make sure the kid was okay and that all that was probably an accident from some kind of squabble. I got the whole story from the lady too so i had to compare it." He held up his hands in a defending nature. "No offense, it's not that i don't trust you, it's that i don't fully trust you. At least not yet. In the meanwhile you can call me Tom." He took another deep breath and held out a hand. "I only offer my help and services, other than that if i need to bolt then i will freely do so. You don't have to kill one man to save another."

Vivian turned her attention to Tomas. "Well, I guess things will start to go a little smoother..."
Posted 06 December 2009 - 10:05 PM
Tomas frowned behind his helmet, hoping at least some of his words were helping Vivian out rather than making things worse. She needed to know that this path was wrong, that she doesn't need to go down this route. He took a deep sigh and leaned against a wall, letting her digest it.

While waiting, Vivian pulls out her pack of knives to check if they are sharp enough. It's only a matter of time before the Life Savers come out again.
Posted 06 December 2009 - 10:34 PM
Tomas smiled even though she couldn't see it. She just needed a gentle push in the right direction, a nudge out the door. It's harder for her because she nearly had everything taken away from her. But she needed to learn how to value this new gift and use it to her advantage. He only hoped his influence was enough.
Posted 06 December 2009 - 10:43 PM
More time passed as the boy was still in the Room. The Life Saver finally came back out one last time. "Well, I doubt he can walk for a little while but he is in a decent condition. Come in if you wish or we could bring him out if you want?" He asked Vivian. "No, I'll get him myself." She responded. The Life Saver went back in. Vivian turns to Tomas. "Want to come?"

Hoping his pep talk at least lightened the mood he pulled away from the bed to let Vivian have her words with the kid. He was actually pulling up from the depressing mood that seemed to descend on the place and he was happy about it. He heard Thor groan in the back of his head and shook his head slightly. Even pretending to sleep, Thor could burst any soft moment with his complaining.

In fact he'd rather leave than be caught, he did strong arm his way into the place after all. That and he already had enough trouble having to get here in the first place. Right now he'd rather leave than stick around and get caught.

Zeke charges through the room, carrying the reploid, panting heavily, and shouts "He needs some help!" His breath was short from carrying him right after he had finished training. Although he didn't know the reploid, he'd hope he'd be all right. Zeke had never seen a person die before, and he wasn't going to today.
