Jen nodded. "Yeah, that sounds good, as long as you don't overdo it."

Rizzo grabbed a peace of paper and wrote "Dear whoever you people are, is this what you want? Is it yours? Cuz you can have it if it is. I don't want it. The thing blew a hole in my house some time ago and I had to tell the neighbors I was playing with fireworks to avoid asking questions since....you know....I have no idea what this freaking thing is. I didn't know where to send it because I didn't know too so please do take it. I've been kind of feeling like I have a nuke in my basement for a while now and that is not a good feeling."

Rizzo handed the note around so others could see it and said "Obviously it's a bit early for me to be writing the note but I figured a test run would be good. What do you guys think? More begging?"

Steve pointed out "It should say I've been kind of feeling like I HAD a nuke."

Rizzo replied "Hey. Scared humans don't think about their gammer."

Jen glanced it over and nodded. "It looks pretty good, but I think it should be more pathetic. Something like, 'Just take it! I don't want it anymore!' instead of 'you can have this if it's yours'. It feels kind of casual. Exclamation points help a lot. And maybe you should-" She cut herself off. "Sorry. I think I'm giving too much feedback, too fast. I do that sometimes with my kids in archery--it's better to work on one or two things at a time. I need to focus on the most important thing, which I guess is to try to put more emotion into it."

((I'm very unwell right now. I would have just had him change it but I don't want to think too deeply right now))

Rizzo grabbed another peace of paper and wrote "Whoever you people are, is this what you want? Take it! Please just take it! I don't want it anymore! I never really wanted it! I only kept it because I was sure the authorities would think I pulled some shizz with something like that laying around! The thing blew a hole in my house some time ago and I had to tell the neighbors I was playing with fireworks to avoid asking questions since I have no idea what this freaking thing is! The thing's like having a nuke in my basement and that's not a good feeling! I won't tell anyone about it's existence. Just take it and leave us alone and we'll be no more trouble."

Rizzo then asked "This one better? I added being scared that they'd try to shut us up too."

 

 

 

((Note Shizz is not meant to be a real bad word in this RP world. It's just as made up a word there as it is in real life))

Jen took it and looked it over, nodding approval. "It's good. It sort of rambles, but then, you'd expect that from a freaked-out person. I think we can make this work."

Iri nodded. "All we have to do now is make the fake one. It's about time for us to leave for work anyway, so we might as well go ahead."

Rizzo said "Oh my god you're right! I wasn't even watching the time! I totally would have dottled until we were late otherwise."

Steve said "Not necessarily. If she didn't let you know I might have."

Rizzo rolled his eyes and replied "True. True. But just to point something out you're a scatter brain too."

"No I'm not!" Said Steve before pausing to think about it and admitting "Oh....wait.....yes. Yes I am. ...Sometimes."

Iri and Jen

Iri laughed. "Let's get going. Goodbye, Jen! I'll let you know when it's done." As Jen headed back to her car, Iri strapped on the jetpack and grabbed Rizzo. "See you later, Dave! You too, Steve!" Getting a gliding start, she headed out the open window.

They landed neatly in the junkyard, and Iri clocked them both in. They went their separate ways, Iri to sculpt the knife, Rizzo to create the tracker.

The pocketknife was a fairly small object, but Iri wanted to give it realistically moving parts, so it took several hours. She left one panel open for Rizzo to place the tracker inside, then went to check on his progress. "How is it going?" she asked eagerly, picking up a handful of metal for her other job--sorting the metal to be melted down. "Are you done?"

"Almost. Just give me a few more minutes." Rizzo replied then said few minutes later he said "There! Got it." He held up a small object easilly a good size to be hidden in the false pocketknife. He continued "It's not very pretty I know ((For it kind of looked like a tracker Frankenstien would have made if he was a michanic)) but the important thing is how well it works. We should both be able to pick up a signal from it and best of all it can be turned off and on remotely in case having a signal come from it right when they take it might make them suspicious that it was bugged. Oh and when I say we can both pick up a signal I of course don't mean I can pick it up with my head. I made this to go with it." In Rizzo's other hand was something that kind of looked like a remote control car's controller only it had a single button and a screen. Rizzo explained "Didn't think I'd let you have all the fun did you? Seriously though this is on the off chance we somehow get separated during tracking. Not very likely but in case it does happen I wanted to have a chance myself."

Iri nodded. "Good thoughts, both turning it on and making a second tracker. In fact..." She trailed off, concentrating, and sent out a signal the same frequency as the tracker. A blip appeared on Rizzo's screen. "Great! If we do get separated, I can send you a tracking signal as well!"

She held out the pocketknife, with the open compartment for Rizzo's tracker. He placed it inside, and she welded the last panel of the pocketknife shut. "We still have a few more hours left of work, though--we can't just leave in the middle. Can you hold onto it? I don't have anywhere to put it."

She sent a message to Jen's phone, letting her know that it was done, but they had to stay for a while longer. The work day seemed to drag on and on as her nervousness about the plan built, but finally it was over. As she strapped on the jetpack, she asked Rizzo, "Where should we go to dump the knife? We never discussed that part."

Iri shrugged. "Makes sense. Let's do this!" She sent a quick message to Jen, asking if she wanted to be there, but she said no.

As soon as they got home, they put their plan in play. They used the real laser to blast a crater into the ground  and left the fake one in the hole. Then they retreated inside to wait.

"When should we turn the tracker on?" Iri asked. "If it's on when they arrive at their destination, it would raise suspicion, but if we wait too long they might figure out it's not real and discard it before we get a chance." She sighed. "Choosing a balance between two options is still difficult for me. There's no algorithm for figuring out where the best point is."

Rizzo replied "I say we do it after they decide to take it. If they take it that means they've been tricked and I'm hoping they won't continusly scan it while they're just moving it. I mean who does that?"

"But what if they get there, scan it again, then realize it has a tracker and move it?" Iri asked. "Would we know where the base was, based on that brief stop?"

Rizzo said "I figure if we have Steve watching the blip as well he can save the last known location before it disapeared. He use to moniture all kinds of stuff. Something like this should be easy for him. And yeah it's not perfict. We might not get the exact location if we're not close enough and it disapears but at least we'd know kind of the general direction to go. If worst comes to worst I guess we could try to just follow a hybrid."

Iri nodded. "I guess."

A loud thump sounded, and she turned on her thermal scanner to see someone with a very odd and scattered heat signature in the yard. Her best guess was that he was bending over, picking up the pocketknife, then standing back up. After a moment of examining it, he left.

"He's gone," she whispered.

 

((I assumed they were hiding, out of view of the windows, but it occurs to me that we never expressly stated it. Well, I guess I did now.))

Rizzo turned on his tracker. "Well it's moving. That's a good sign. If it stops we can assume one of two things. They got where they wanted to go or they found the tracker and tossed it."

Steve waited for the hybrid to be out of sight in normal camera setting before moving (he had pretended to be offline) to the window to stick his camera in. "I don't think they'll see you if you two start following them now."

Rizzo asked "How are you doing with the tracking?"

Steve replied "I'm getting readings.....why?"

Rizzo said "Cuz like I was telling Iri your saving said readings is really important if they discover the pocketknife of doom is a fake."

As they said it the blip stopped moving or to be more spesific Rizzo's device told them the target had stopped moving. Steve said "I hope that means the place is closer then we thought and it's not that other option you mentioned."

Iri shrugged. "Well, shall we go check it out?" She hadn't taken off the jetpack yet, so she'd be ready to go immediately in case of an emergency. She was also keeping Jen updated through regular texts.

Iri looked over at Dave and Steve. "I'll keep Steve updated, and he can let you know what's going on, Dave," she said. Then she picked Rizzo up and turned on the jetpack, taking to the air. Rather than follow the roads, with her brightly glowing and conspicuous jetpack, she made a direct beeline for the source of the signal.

When they got to the source they found a hybrid removing something from the false pocketknife of doom. Rizzo whispered a cuss then said equilly as quietly "They found it. Plan B. Try to follow the hybrid themselves. It might be the only way and eventully they'll have to return to base."

Iri scanned the area for more radio frequencies and spotted one that the hybrids were using to communicate with each other and their base. Tuning her mind into that frequency, she waited until they were out of view of the hybrids (with their rather attention-drawing jetpack) before following the next signal she picked up with their frequency. She repeated this procedure several times, explaining what she was doing to Rizzo (and Dave, Steve, and Jen) along the way.

Steve sent an "Ooooh. That's smart. Good thinking Iri. That's probubly way better then keeping them in phisical view like Rizzo was probubly assuming......no offence to Rizzo of course. He is smart to but something he himself can't do might not come to his mind is what I mean."

After a while all this searching lead them to a pretty normal looking apartment building. A sign said condemmed on the front but odd signals came in and out of it.

Iri took a picture of the building and sent it to Steve and Jen. "What, no evil lair of darkness?" Jen sent back. "I would've expected at least a creepy abandoned warehouse. An apartment building is just weird."

"What's the plan?" Iri asked, both out loud and in the text.

Iri sighed. "Not right now, anyway. Maybe tonight. Jen was right when she said we'll have to take this slow. I think you and Dave would be best suited to do this, since you have experience sneaking places. I may be able to join you, since I don't make footsteps." She gestured to her bottom with a mild amount of humor.

Rizzo said "Good point." though he didn't look too thrilled with the idea. He didn't hate Dave but they were still far from besties and dispite everything Dave's reputation for being a tattletail was still on Rizzo's mind. Did he logically think it would be a problum? No. But emotionally thinking the issue was there.

"One more thing," Iri said, turning on her infrared to scan the building. She assembled an extremely rough 3D model of it based on what she could see. Moving to another angle, she took a second scan, and a third, until she had a pretty good idea of what (and who) was inside. As she turned off her scanner, she felt a wave of dizziness sweep over her.

That's weird, she thought. Infrared scanning is pretty battery-draining, but it's never been able to mess up my balancing algorithm before. I've heard humans can get dizzy after heavy exertion, though. Maybe that's what it is?

The dizziness passed. It hadn't been very long. Shrugging slightly, Iri returned to Rizzo. "I think we're ready to go."

There was a LOT of stuff in the building. Many apartments were no longer apartments and instead looked more like labs of some kind. Of the ones that weren't laby some looked more like offices and some looked like charging stations. Quite a few hybrids milled around alongside a couple AIs many of which had a whole lot of arms with various tools on each arm. They were not unlike Twitchy's spider bot drawings. Most of them were shorter though a little wider then a human. There was one however who was almost the size of a car. Twitchy himself was in the building. He didn't look too distressed for someone who got kidnapped and wasn't even being restrained. At least....not phisically. There were some sicurity cameras in the building to worry about as well.

 

 

Rizzo nodded and said jokingly "Should we fly or should I call a cab?" before adding "By the way that was an attempt to be silly. Not pushy. Cuz you know it would be pretty funny if- nevermind. I don't even remember where I was going with that."

 

 

((If you want to add anything to the building that you think might be cool or fun go right ahead.))

Since Iri could only make out heat signitures, she couldn't see everything in perfect detail, but she had a pretty good idea of what was inside the building. She could even tell where cameras were, and she could guess where they were probably pointed.

She shrugged. "We'd better get a few streets away on foot before taking off. The jetpack, plus the pair of us using it, might be pretty recognizeable." As they walked, she added, "We can call a taxi if you want. I've never ridden in one. The jetpack is faster, of course, but if you prefer the smoothness of a taxi that's fine. I even know a taxi. I'm sure he'd be happy to give us a ride."

 

((Random Flash of Worldbuilding time! Very few taxis are sapient. A few AIs decided they enjoyed driving, much like some humans enjoyed driving, and so the AIs got themselves put into a car. None are personal cars, because those see less use and thus would be a pretty boring job. I was going to decide that some AI cars befriended humans and became personal cars, but that would be really lonely and boring most of the time. Instead, some AIs who befriended humans became one of those home intelligence systems like Alexa or Google Home, only for a single person. Most robots don't do that, though, because they like having a body they can move around.))

Rizzo made a similar face to the one he did the first time Iri saw him ask Dave to help Steve start up a movie (which was a very creeped out face) and said "Yeeeeaaah. I was actully joking. It's not that I don't trust that an AI would be a better driver then a human given the car is kind of their body in that situation but I am NOT riding inside of somebody. That type of stuff is super creepy to me. Like, REALLY super creepy. Like, nightmares super creepy."

 

 

((That makes sense. I also wonder if there are some AIs who drive multiple cars at once basing their conciousness somewhere else and controlling the cars remotely. Like some who aren't as good multitaskers or prefer a more personal experience pretty much become a car while ones who are a little better at it might drive multiple. Given that we've established that AIs in this universe can have trouble with too much unexpected stuff thrown at them the once that drive many cars at once probubly have to be weary of that issue))

Rizzo said "It's alright. It's not like I'm above disturbing jokes as long as they are just jokes. Since we're on this topic I just thought about what might happen if someone like Steve got zapped with that troublesome tool instead of you. I think we should make sure he doesn't play with that thing cuz the results might be horrifying."

 

 

 

 

((That COULD be creepy. If Steve was turned human would just part of him of about the right size change and the rest of him break off or would something much....much worse happen? Perhaps the question is better left unanswered.))

Rizzo took on the ready to be picked up pose which was simply raising his arms a bit to allow easy pick up. He said "You know, speaking of the earlier conversation with the taxis and me not wanting to go inside other people. I really hope the cameras aren't a hint that they've got one of those controls a whole building AIs. Those freaking creep me out the same way."

Iri shrugged. "There's really no way to tell, but it seems unlikely to me. That sort of thing takes up a lot of brainpower, and there should've been a central computing system. I didn't see anything large enough, or with the right heat signiture, to fit that bill."

The flight back was relatively long, but the wind blowing past them was too loud for them to be able to talk to each other. As they entered the apartment, Iri said, "The jetpack needs to be refilled, and I should power down for a few hours to recharge. I'm planning to come with you tonight, and I want to be at full battery."

 

((I think we should have at least a few posts of heist planning before they get inside.))

Rizzo playfully teased "The human side has grown further. You have gained.....naughtyness. Mwahahaha!" then continued no longer teasing "Seriously though, that's probubly a good idea. It'll be really imbarrising if we get caught for a stupid reason based on how many AIs can see more then humans."

Dave asked "How'd it go?"

Rizzo told him "We found the base. Or at least a base."

Steve asked "Any sign of Twitchy?"

 

 

 

((No problum with that))

((Oh and I don't actully know what is meant by the apartment so I can edit if that's needed. If they stopped by Iri's place or Jen's place obveeusly Dave and Steve wouldn't be there. Rizzo however does have a true house))

Steve asked "What's the plan?"

Rizzo told him "Some of us are going to try sneaking in. Other then that we're still in the planning stages."

Steve said "I'd offer to help but I don't think I'm going to be sneaking anywhere."

Rizzo chuckled slightly at the mental image of the house sized Steve trying to tip toe near that base on his creaky hydraulic driven landing gear. Not to mention his creaky everything else. Those solar pannles would probably clatter and rattle in such a situation as well.

"What?" Steve asked.

"Oh. Nothing. Nothing." Rizzo replied waving the question off.
