Mission Assignment: Teacher's Pet
Location: Lighthouse Island


Gematria fired a grappling line with a claw hand, getting a firm grip on a handhold. Just when she was about to reel in the line, though, something struck her on the head. The additional electrical effect caused her body to short circuit. Megumi found that she could no longer move Gematria. She gave off a sighing noise, then proceeded to eject herself from Gematria to examine the damage.

Regaining her human senses, she blinked a few times, trying to regain her bearings, then sighed again as she began to inspect the damage caused by the electrical attack. Megumi pulled Gematria toward her, removing a panel from the forehead to examine the circuitry inside. Some components had been fried, rendering them unusable, but it was a minor issue. Megumi had come prepared for such an occasion.

Opening another compartment in Gematria's stomach area, she pulled out a small metal box containing various small tools and spare circuitry. She removed the damaged pieces and was in the middle of inserting the new replacements when the attackers appeared to hold everyone at gunpoint. Her hands paused as she stared at them, unsure of what to do in her current state. Looking down at her hands, she knew she had one more piece to install, but she was worried she couldn't place it in quick enough.

Fortunately, it seemed Stray was on the job, quickly disarming the men. Megumi was impressed as always with Stray's work, then realized that she was free to finally fix up Gematria. A second later, Megumi finished her work and placed all her tools back inside Gematria's storage. She then crackled with electricity, electro-surfing back into the android. She leapt back onto her feet, exclaiming, "Gematria, back in action!" Two panels opened up at her hips, firing a pair of cables with pointed tips, driving themselves into the ground and anchoring them towards the direction of one of the men. Wheels popped out from her feet, and the cables began to rapidly reel themselves in, propelling Gematria towards that man as she readied a punch aimed at his face.

Gematria looked between the students and Stray, then sighed in relief. It seemed it was just a small test for the students. Now everyone was moving along to the yard, where there was training equipment and space aplenty to develop their skills. Gematria walked over to one set of equipment and began to scrutinize it carefully, wondering just how effective it was at its job. After swiveling her wrist around, she eventually set it back down and returned to the group, where Blaze was inviting the others to a race. Gematria's face screen displayed a raised eyebrow, then she shrugged and added, "I'm willing to participate in this race as well. I've been meaning to do some field testing on my new upgrades." With that said, Gematria raised her arms, which had holes open on its palms. If one looked carefully, one could see some metal that made up the hook heads for her grappling hooks.

Gematria crossed her arms and rolled her eyes at Blaze, letting out a "Hmph!" from her speakers before turning her attention to Principal Lee. From the lost of delinquents, she was concerned with Michelle the most, as she had no idea what electrokinetic superhumans could do to her. Still, she wasn't about to let that stop her form doing her job as a Hero, and she followed the group to the classroom with the expected delinquents. Gematria took a look around the Academy, taking particular note of how well fortified the buildings were. It made sense, considering this was a place meant to contain rowdy superhumans.

Upon arrival, it seemed that the delinquents were uninterested in the Hero group. Gematria wasn't sure what to think of them either. Her school life wasn't exactly the most social. However, there was precious little time to react to first impressions as Stray began asking them about the act of killing. Gematria visibly recoiled from Stray's seemingly out-of-the-blue questions, shocked that he would bring such a topic up. Already her mind raced as to why he would do so. Perhaps he wanted to teach them the horrors of life, or maybe he was planning to assert dominance through his vast wisdom and experience. Whatever the case, Gematria thought it was an extreme approach.
Interactions would certainly be interesting.


Mission Assignment: Teacher's Pet
Location: Lighthouse Island


Inside the ship, Megumi could not have felt more miserable. Megumi thought she had been used to the effects of motion sickness when playing VR games, but the moving ship proved otherwise. She could swear her stomach had gained a life of its own and wanted to crawl out of her mouth. It was a shame, too, as she had packed some snacks she wanted to eat on the journey. In a desperate attempt to escape her seasickness, she issued a command to her robot companion Gem, "Gem, enter- ugh, enter 'Gematria' mode." Gem then began to transform, quickly taking on the humanoid form that made up Megumi's hero persona, Gematria. Grabbing its left hand, Megumi's body then turned into a mass of electric sparks as it entered the the Gematria android. On its face plate, two blue eyes lit up and blinked, signifying that Megumi had taken over and become Gematria.

Patting her stomach area, Gematria felt relieved that she could no longer feel her stomach doing flips. She still couldn't eat any snacks, but that was a problem for another time. She made her way up to the ship's deck, and saw that the ship was already nearing their destination. Like Blaze, she too was eager to get off the ship, though for a different reason than her. "Yeah, Blaze! That's not appropriate language to use on a principal," Gematria scolded her. Turning to Barbara Lee, Gematria bowed her head and addressed her, "Apologies for our rudeness, Principal Lee. My name is Gematria, and I will do my utmost to succeed in our mission."
@Thinslayer "Well, no," Afki said hesitantly. "At least, I haven't. This is very strange..." At the same time, Parshath shivered a little upon seeing the Voidspawn, overcome with a sudden desire to strike at it, to wipe it out of existence. Afki, noticing the slight tremble in her hands, asked him, You ok, Parshath? The desire soon faded, and Parshath's mind cleared once more. Oh, um, uh, y-yeah. It's all good, Parshath chuckled. You know how it is with Voidspawn... Afki frowned, but decided not to pursue it. It's that again, huh? Well, as long as you're okay... She said, remembering the last time they encountered a Voidspawn. It was dispatched easily, of course, but Parshath's reaction had been the same as before. It's just an instinct, I guess. And hey, it could be helpful if we come across more of those things. I'm telling ya, Voidspawns are more dangerous than what most people think of them. I'm not wrong on that... probably, Parshath said.

@Thinslayer While the lots were going on, Afki and Parshath were having their own mental conversation. Well, someone's popular, Parshath remarked. To think I'd see the day my little girl would-

Ugh, not this joke again, Afki thought, rolling her eyes at Parshath. You already used this joke when the party first formed. You could at least come up with something new.

Gee, when did you become such a critic? You got no sense of humor anymore, Parshath sulked.

Maybe if this wasn't the 10th time you've tried to use it, I'd actually want to hear it again.

Their argument continued on until the party finally settled on the groups, and Afki set off with Hallim and Budam in tow. The tunnels remained as lifeless as the rest of the city, but that didn't make the situation any better. Honestly, the more we stay here, the more I'm sure we should get out while we still can, Parshath remarked. Me too, but we should at least make an effort to find Cho. Who knows what's happened to him? Afki responded.

I'd rather not stick around to find out, Parshath answered. Turning to Hallim, Afki responded, "Not too long now. With any luck, we'll find Cho and be out of here before you know it." She flashed a smile at the two before turning her attention back to searching for their missing party member. She really hoped her sense of danger was wrong.
