Rusty glanced down at her, but had to look back ahead when she scratched under his eye. "It is fine. I am a-live, am I not? If you need med-i-cal as-sis-tance then I will find it for you. Your in-ab-il-ity to con-trol your pow-ers is not to let you d.ie over." He told her, thinking she was being irrational at the moment. He wasn't quite sure why he was being so soft on her either. That had caused him GREAT discomfort... but now, he didn't care about it so much.

Rusty glanced at Harper momentarily, feeling her wrestling against him. He didn't quite get why she was doing this and when she completely slumped limp he felt concerned. "Harper." He prodded, physically prodding her with a tentacle as he glanced back outside with his outer vision. Now he thought that leg injury had been very bad. He hurried along quickly, concerned about being caught or seen though it didn't seem like there were more on their trail... yet. "Harper?"

Rusty huffed in relief that she was just fine- until she sneezed and teleported out again. "HARPER!" He barked in agitation and concern once more. This really WAS getting dangerous.

The dalek whose unit she teleported in to gave a surprised "ALERT!" and grabbed her roughly immediately. "Hos-tile has com-pro-mised armor! At-temp-ting con-tain-ment!" it barked, wrapping its tentacles around her tightly to keep her from moving.

Rusty scanned the horizon quickly. "HARPER!"

There. Sudden red flags not far from here. So they WERE following them.

Rusty turned back and sped for them.

However, unfortunately for this one, she had learned from her partner that this is a bad being, so...she does the unexpected...she shoves her face against its eye and says "you're sooooo gonna regret separating me from my partner" she growls, she ACTUALLY manages to use her energy to take its shields down and OPENS its unit, biting its arms and gets free, she then races to her partner and growls at the bad one....

Rusty was closing in on them fast. This time it was a group of three. He sped towards them, gun ready.

Suddenly one of them screamed, its casing apparently being forced open, and out popped Harper. She landed beside him with a growl, glaring at the one she'd attacked. It was barking 'warnings' and 'how this was so shameful' and such. Rusty killed that one first. The others turned their guns on him. He moved in front of Harper to protect her. Their blasts hit his shields and he took them, firing a shot at one of them and destroying it. That left the last one. It managed another shot off at him, but he finished it off. Rusty glanced at Harper, the rain beading against his shields. He put them down again as it was needless powerdrain to keep them up. "Harper! Are you al-right? I sup-pose I said your in-ab-il-ity to control your pow-ers were no-thing to be a-shamed of, but they are dangerous. You need to fo-cus on not doing that. Ok?!" He instructed quickly, unsure of how many daleks would be sent after them so he was ready to jump at any moment.

Rusty stared at her, then opened his casing and brought her in. He closed himself back up quickly, glancing down at her. "Are you al-right?" He asked, already allowing his cooling systems to back off a bit to let the inside of his unit warm. He couldn't let it get too hot or things would overheat but he didn't want her catching cold. "Harper. You must focus now. You can not tel-e-port. Focus on here. Do not think about tel-e-porting." He instructed carefully. He didn't have personal experience but he could read up on things in a flash. He decided to keep her mind off of things. "How are you feeling?"

"That will pass soon. I am a-llow-ing the in-ter-i-or of my unit to in-crease to a higher temp-er-at-ure than norm-al to comp-en-sate for the cold. Did it hurt you?" He asked, trying to keep her talking and focused.

"Well. You did what you had to. It was good you dis-abled them." He said, keeping back that he kept her mostly FOR the shield disabling and stuff (mainly because he didn't see it necessary to say that and because that wasn't the main reason he kept her around at all.) "I doubt it tasted good." He said, though he wouldn't really know.

"Mostly prefer fruits" she nods, she then hugs him softly

 

(i'l just post the post here just in case  )

 

Harper smiles softly "Either way, you know I'm here to help you whenever you need me to,  you've done so much for me, I can't just sit by without doing something for YOU for once you know, that just wouldn't be fair" she says with a giggle. Harper gently tries to wrestle with his arms, she makes a noticable purrig sound and noses one arm, she even balences one on her nose and looks up at him. Harper is obviously trying to make him feel better about all that has happened.
 
She then chirps and sneezes...but doesn't teleport, this is due to her focus on her friend and she just looks at him, her pupils are dialated, not out of illness, but out of love and devotion.

Rusty watched her, very much supposing that to be true. She purred and played with his arms, a bit more of a mannerism that a cat shares rather than a human, though he supposed she was also part of another species. Suddenly she sneezed and he got a little tense, but she didn't teleport, just looked up at him with dilated pupils and a very adoring look. He relaxed a little, wrestling gently back at her to keep her occupied. "I sup-pose that is fair." He agreed to her last statement, still moving along hurriedly.

Rusty continued to move in silence for a long while, finally finding a dense grouping of trees that shielded a good bit of the rain. He stopped here to rest momentarily so he could focus on looking for any news floating about that might be of them. Suddenly he became aware of Harper's silence for so long. "Still with us?" Rusty asked her, looking around for any signs of humans or daleks around. None so far.

"Good." He replied back to her, having not immediately heard a response so had quickly looked in to see her nodding. She remained silent though. He wondered why. Perhaps she didn't like being cooped up so long? He glanced back around outside.

"The trees should shield most of the rain. You can come out now if you wish to- briefly." He suggested.

"Why? I would not have tak-en you if I did not want you. I would not just leave you now." He said simply, glancing around. He wondered what she was thinking about. "Are you quite cer-tain you are al-right." He pressed, mostly worried about her health state.

Rusty didn't feel convinced. Either she was hurting and she was hiding it or this was psychological. "In most therapeutic texts re-gard-ing most hum-an-oids that fit your spe-cies de-script-ion it says that talk-ing out the pat-ients prob-lems im-prove the pat-ients psychological health. So what is troub-l-ing you. I want to know for your health." Rusty stated.

She says "I just don't think I will ever be as tough as you are.....I could never be able to match up to someone that amazing, happy?" she asks and teleports to the coast and gets a drink of water......

Rusty was surprised by this and then surprised moreso by her teleporting away. He was concerned he had lost her. He scanned for her and headed for where she was, though it took him a while to get there.

Once he tracked her down, he paused a ways from her. "Harper. Phys-ic-ally you are tougher than my bio-log-ic-al form. The on-ly rea-son I am tougher than you is be-cause of my arm-or-ments. If you had the same out-fit-tings you tech-nic-ally would be more-so than I, be-cause of the a-fore-men-tioned bio-logical re-sil-ience." Rusty said, thinking that's what she meant. He then remembered to add "And do not do that."

Rusty stared at her as she hesitated but she did, finally, teleport back in. He 'hmph'ed in irritation, turning back around and heading back off for the trees again. He stared down at her as she smirked at him but he glanced back up and back to outer vision quickly. "I won-der if you have hearing is-sues. When I tell you to come, come. It is simple in-struct-ions." He lectured, still feeling a little cross but calming back down now. "I highly dis-cour-age you parting ways from me just yet. You have made your-self a bit of a fug-it-ive now, so now you are in more dan-ger that I will con-tin-ue to keep you from in agree-ment with the or-ig-inal cause for this en-tire side-quest any-ways." He said, still on his way back for the trees.

Rusty was caught off guard by this and gave a slight 'ehm' when she started but finally just took it with a "Yes, that will do."

He reached the woods again and glanced around. He departure had refueled his theory on her getting stir crazy. "If you would like to be out-side, I am cap-a-ble of mak-ing a fire to keep you warm as you 'stretch your legs' as they say." He offered.

Rusty was caught off guard by the sudden light blast ability, and then she completely disappeared from sight again. He tried scanning for her but she seemed to be jamming it- her cloaking ability. He was a bit concerned that she could and was using it against him. He rotated his head around, looking for her. "Harper? You have not gone off a-way a-gain have you?" He called out.

With her being so far up a simple headshake was hard to pick up on. Rather than yelling up at her he simply levitated up to her level and followed her gaze, finding it to rest simply on the night sky. "What is it?" He asked further.

Rusty glanced over at her, disliking this distant attitude she had developed. He stayed quiet for a moment. "What does your mind's eye see?" He asked this time, trying to ask what was on her mind in a subtle manner.

"
I spent last night in the arms
Of a girl in Louisiana
And though I'm out on the highway
My thoughts are still with her
Such a strange combination of a woman and a child
Such a strange situation stoppin' every hundred miles
Callin' Baton Rouge

A replay of last night's events
Roll through my mind
Except a scene or two
Erased by sweet red wine
And I see a truck stop sign ahead
So I change lanes
I need a cup of coffee
And a couple dollars change
Callin' Baton Rouge

Operator won't you put me on through
I gotta' send my love down to Baton Rouge
Hurry up won't you put her on the line
I gotta' talk to the girl just one more time

Hello Samantha dear, I hope you're feelin' fine
And it won't be long until I'm with you all the time
But until then I'll spend my money up right down to my last dime
Callin' Baton Rouge

Operator won't you put me on through
I gotta' send my love down to Baton Rouge
Hurry up won't you put her on the line
I gotta' talk to the girl just one more time

Callin' Baton Rouge
Sweet Baton Rouge, my Baton Rouge" she sings

Rusty was pleased to find her teleporting back into his tank, not the response he'd expected but a positive one anyways. But then she started tickling him with a feather again. He laughed uncontrollably and accidentally bumped into the tree, then once he recomposed himself notice Harper was down by the fire, playing a banjo. She sure kept you on your metaphorical toes, that's for sure.

He floated slowly down to her, listening to her song. He would've asked where she had gotten the banjo from but just decided against it. Probably teleported it in, after all. As she finished he stared at her. "You know. It is much less like-ly for peo-ple to find us if we do not sing songs loud-ly out in the for-est." He noted bluntly, then added a bit less bluntly "You are well trained in that mus-ic-al in-strum-ment."
