Iri

Iri let him leave. She didn't care much about fighting him. She waited until she was sure he was gone, then asked Steve to return to the ground and let Twitchy out, and sent a message to Rizzo and Dave to come down onto the lawn too. They needed to figure out what to do next.

Steve landed with a thump though a surprisingly gentle one for something his size then opened his door. Rizzo and Dave walked out of the house Rizzo commenting "That's actually the first time I've seen Steve fly. That was awesome! Steve, you are awesome!"

"Really? Thank you." Replied Steve who continued "Really though that wasn't flying. That was hovering. Glad it provided you with a show at least."

Twitchy didn't come out of Steve yet. He just poked his head out the door like a curious but nervous feral cat caught at a glance as it was sneaking through an alleyway.

Rizzo asked him "You ok there Twitchy?"

Twitchy replied "IRemembered." which didn't have much to do with what Rizzo asked but it definitely caught both Steve and Rizzo's attention.

Steve asked "What do you remember?"

Twitchy corrected "No. IDon'tRememberer. I remembered. While the other hybrid spoke to me I remembered. It'sGoneNow." he looked down at Steve's ramp the way many people look at the ground when something upsets them.

Iri shrugged. "It's all right. At least you remembered for a bit. Now we need to decide what's next. He's likely to come back, and with more hybrids, too."

Rizzo admitted "Oh god. That's true! And they'll probubly all have wepons considering everything. There's no way we could fight them off if a whole group of them came."

Steve offered "We could move. I'd make it easy."

Rizzo replied "Easy phisicly sure. But I've lived here for years!" He walked to the house and put his hand on the wall.

Steve continued "It wouldn't have to be perminant. Just untill things blow over." 

'What if they don't?" Rizzo asked. Steve turned a camera to the ground and admitted "Then...I don't know."

Iri sighed. "I think we may have to chose between keeping Twitchy safe and living the same way we're used to living. Unless there's some way to hide Twitchy and tell them he left. In fact-" her mind started whirring- "we could get a video of him leaving, then have him come back, but don't film that part. When they come back and ask us where he is we'll show them the video! The only problem is that he can do a really detailed scan of Steve, and probably also the house, so he'd be able to see if Twitchy is in either one."

Rizzo thought about something then motioned to Iri to come near before whispering "I just remembered something really weird. Remember when a hybrid serched my house for the giant pocket knife thing? They never found it. That means two possible things. Ether the hybrid who serched my house didn't have the same scanning abilitys which wouldn't make sense given the fact that they were sent to search a house. You'd think they'd send someone with a scanner. Anyway ether it's that OR even the strongest scanners can't penetrate where I hid the tool. You see my hidy hole isn't a normal hidy hole. My house was built over a hidden bunker. I have a bunker accessed via a trap door in my house."

Steve commented "Wait. You have a bunker?" Evedently hearing what Rizzo said despite his attempt to avoid that. Rizzo sighed and explained "Yes Steve. I have a bunker. That's where I use to hide all the stuff I stole. And still do hide some stuff. Just not recent stealings anymore. I didn't want to tell you because I knew you'd try to mess with it."

Steve asked "When have I messed with things?"

Rizzo raised an eyebrow "Do I really need to bring up the time one of our guests thought you were trying to steal her wallet because you were curious about her weirdly shaped lipstick? Or maybe I should bring up the time-"

"Ok ok. Maybe I do get a little curious sometimes." Steve admitted then he said "But you have to admit. That lipstick was WEEEIIIRRRD. I caught you stareing at it too."

Rizzo admitted "Ya. It was weird. And that's why I stole it."

Dave told him "I thought you only stole from AIs."

Rizzo snapped "I steal from anyone I don't like! I'm not racist!" Then he crossed his arms and grumbled "I just run into a lot of racists. Besides. She was needlessly rude to Steve. I had to take revenge."

"Awww." Steve cooed. Touched.

Rizzo waved the whole issue away and said "Anyway all that isn't the point! The point is. If the bunker can hide a certain something. Maybe it can also hide Twitchy."

Steve asked "What certain something is it already hideing." 

Rizzo continued "Well that's another reason I was whispering. Iri? Do you think it's worth showing them the thing now? Twitchy's bound to see it if I hide him in the same place anyway and now it will be impossible to keep Steve from peaking."

 

 

 

((Origanally I thought the earlyer search of the house plus the Steve scan was going to be a plothole. This was not planned. It's just me trying to explain away said plothole.))

((Convenient plot hole patch is convenient. Very convenient. I don't really know what they'd do otherwise, so yay!))

 

Iri nodded. "Okay, let's try it. I think it's worth it. He'd find out eventually anyway, and it might be helpful, since both of them are things the other people are looking for."

((I had one possible route where they have to temporarally live somewhere else and end up with the humans and Twitchy having to crash with Steve for a bit in a new area. I'm sure Rizzo is very happy I didn't go this route but I figure it was worth meantioning as one of the things I considered so you can have fun imagining how much this would creep out Rizzo. XD))

 

Rizzo said "In that case. Let me get the thing. Everyone follow me into the house. Steve you too though just with a camera obveeusly."

Iri watched interestedly as Rizzo led them through the house.

Rizzo found a spot in the wall that looked like nothing but a crack caused by some sort of damage however as he pushed his fingers into that crack it turned out to be a cleverly discised lever. He paused to say "What you are about to see I have never shown anyone." then he pulled the lever and a part of the floor that just looked like a natural crack in the wood flipped up. The underside of the hach looked like a legit hatch and not the underside of something made of wood. "That's so it can be locked from inside. Again, it's a bunker. I've never used it like that though." Rizzo explained gesturing to a crank on the inside...side of the trapdoor. Rizzo lead them down a short flight of stairs and then they were in the bunker. It was easilly as big as all the rooms in the avrage bottum floor of a house combined. Or at least it would be if it wasn't filled wall to wall with various parts of gadgets and shelves with even more parts of gadgets and tools on them. Rizzo said "Don't worry. I swear all this stuff was stolen before I got a job. Everything exept that screw from that one hybrid. It's just most of it is usefull peaces I might be able to use so I kept them."

Steve said "Oh! So this is where you keep your collection of screws!" and pointed his camera to one shelf on a far wall that was full of jars which, in tern were full of screws of all sizes. There was even one abnormally large screw so big it didn't even need a jar. Rizzo pointed at it and said "Got that one from a much less friendly space ship than Steve. He didn't watch where his feet went so after the fith time of nearly getting stepped on I took that from um." 

 

((Rizzo must take a momment to show off before getting down to busness XD))

Iri stared. "Wow. I never thought I'd want a secret room, but this... this is cool."

 

((Okay, I have a thing for hidden lairs. We recently saw The Case for Christ--IDK if you've seen it, but the guy has this workroom somewhere, it's unclear where, but it kinda looks like a storage place for the newspaper he works at, and he compiles his research in it. That was my favorite part of the movie. I want a research lair too!))

"I know right?" Agreed Rizzo. "This is my absolute favrot thing about my house." Then he remembered what they were doing and said "Oh! Right! The weird tool!" he reached down behind a pile of stuff and brought the tool out into view. Steve tilted his camera to one side as his way of c.ocking his head to one side (since, you know, he didn't really have a head) and said "Is. Is that a giant pocket knife? Kind of ruins the point of a pocketknife to make one too big for people with pockets doesn't it?"

Twitchy stared at the object and shifted from one foot to the other as if the thing made him uncomfortable but when Rizzo asked him what was wrong he said "IDon'tKnow."

Rizzo explained "I found this... thing in the junkyard Iri and I work at. It kind of....helped spark our friendship by being weird and something we were both curious about."

Twitchy stepped back one step and mumbled "IDon'tLikeIt."

Hearing this Steve asked him "Why?" and Twitchy replied "IDon'tKnow. IJustDon'tLikeIt."

Iri 'picked it up gingerly, remembering her last experience with it. She felt like there was something about it she was missing. She had the information about it she needed, she just had to put it together. There was definitely a connection between it and the hybrids. Twitchy had drawn it, a hybrid had tried to get it before, Twitchy seemed uncomfortable around it, and it had jolted her into being more of a hybrid herself.

"BeCareful! It'sBad!" Twitchy warned.

Rizzo told him "We get it Twitchy. You don't like it."

"It's bad!" Twitchy insisted.

Rizzo asked him "Do you remember why by any chance?"

Twitchy paused. During this time he stood weirdly still for someone like him. Even weirder he did it for a long time. It was kind of like the trance he was in when the invading hybrid spoke to him but the expression was definitely his own look of unease instead of a dead eyed stare.

Rizzo snapped his fingers in front of Twitchy's face to get his attention and asked "You ok there buddy? Hello?"

Twitchy pointed at the tool and said "My boss wants that back."

"We know." Replied Rizzo. Continuing with "Do you know why?"

"Why?" asked Twitchy.

Rizzo told him "I don't know. I'm asking YOU." to which Twitchy said "Oh. .....Yes. I....IThink I might knowALittle."

There was a pause then Rizzo asked "Well?"

Twitchy replied "OhYesRight. Sorry. TheOld way toMakeHybrids was too slow. That'sAPrototype handheld version."

Rizzo asked "So why is it bad?"

"I...don'tRemember." Replied Twitchy.

 

 

((I'm thinking since it can start the change into hybridation it can also accelerate it whichever direction the wielder of the tool wants in the person targeted. (After all just starting it wouldn't be very useful to the one who made it. They would want some control of where the change goes) This means it could also be used to forcibly increase the percentage of whatever side the wielder wants in said targeted person. Twitchy has seen it used this way on hybrids who went human enough to question what was going on and nearly had it done to him. One can easily see why he wouldn't like the tool given this fact))

Iri looked it over gingerly. "A handheld tool for making hybrids?" she asked. "Thats... incredibly disturbing. You could just walk up to somebody on the street and turn them into a cyborg!" That explained what it had done to her. What should they do now? They could try to destroy it, but the laser function would be valuable if they had to defend Twitchy. Plus, it would be nice to have some modicum of control of her level of robot and human.

Rizzo agreed "OMG! That IS disturbing! I didn't even think of that!" he facepalmed himself then continued "Duh! THAT must be why it is bad!"

Twitchy asked "Is it bad?"

"YOU said it was bad." Rizzo pointed out but Twitchy shook his head and said "NotBecauseOfThat. Or...at least I THINK it was somethingElse."

Rizzo told him "Well then yes Twitchy. It's bad to modify someone's body without their permission. It's one of the rudest things you could possibly do."

Twitchy asked "WhatAboutSurgeryAfterACarCrashWhereThePersonWasUnconscious?"

"What?" Rizzo asked. Twitchy repeated "What about surgery after a car crash where-"

"Not even remotely the same thing." Rizzo told him before he was done. 

Taking note of Twitchy's confused expression Steve told the hybrid "I think what Rizzo means to say is that when saving someone's life the rules of proper etiquette don't always apply. If you were going to give someone a nose job without their permission it would be very rude. However if the nose job was done to remove cancer or a lodged projectile or something suddenly it's not rude."

Twitchy still looked confused so Steve told him "Let's talk about it more later."

Iri shrugged. "I think we've got time. If someone's in a life-threatening situation where they can't give you their consent to save them, you can probably assume they would rather have their life saved. But if it's something not life-threatening, you should get their permission. Otherwise, Rizzo is right, that's really rude."

"OOoooh. Ok." Twitchy said as if this idea was very new to him. Then he asked "Why?"

Rizzo face palmed. He wasn't actually sure how to explain it though. In the end he decided to do a demonstration and yanked Twitchy's ear.

Twitchy yelped then asked "WhatWasThatFor?"

Rizzo asked back "Did you like that?"

"No." replied Twitchy rubbing his ear.

Rizzo continued "That's why it's rude."

Twitchy thought for a moment then said "....IDon'tGetIt. What does this have to do with...the thing...you said?"

"Rizzo just did something to you that you didn't like, without your permission," Iri explained. "Now imagine how much worse it would be if he... I don't know, cut that ear completely off or something. A permanent change."

"I wouldn't like it." Twitchy replied.

"Uh huh." Said Rizzo nodding and doing a "So that means?" hand gesture.

However Twitchy still didn't connect the lines just yet. He asked "WhatIfHeHadAReasonTo?"

"What?" Asked Rizzo.

Twitchy repeated "What if he had a reason to cut off my ear? What if he replaced it with a better one?"

Rizzo told him "It's still rude! What if in trying to help I also gave you side effects you didn't want? What if you couldn't listen to music again because it was too loud? Or what if it picked up radio waves and you couldn't turn it off? Heck what if it just looked weird and everyone laughed at you because of it?"

"What if it doesn't do that?" Twitchy asked to which Rizzo countered "But what if it did?"

Twitchy said "If it did I guess I wouldn't like it."

Rizzo added "And if it didn't have side effects that would mean I was still willing to risk possible side effects for you instead of letting you decide if you wanted to risk them. I made a dissision for you instead of offering the option and letting you decide."

Twitchy stared at him. 

Rizzo continued "There must be some way to explain this. Hmm..... If I insisted we both eat peanut butter sandwiches even though you wanted tuna that day and even though we had tuna in the house that we weren't doing anything with you'd probably be upset right?"

"Maybe." Said Twitchy. Finally it hit him and he said "OOoooh." in response.

"Uh huh. Uh huh. See?" Said Rizzo.

"I do see." Replied Twitchy. "ISeeNowVeryMuch."

Rizzo said "Well. We know last time my house got searched they couldn't find the tool down here. I assume if we hide Twitchy down here they won't be able to find him. That is. Assumeing Twitchy can stay quiet and not hint his location."

Iri nodded. "What about us, though? Do we just go to work like normal? And most of all, what are we going to do with the pocketknife?"

Rizzo said "I think we should keep the tool down here. It might actually be dangerous to try to destroy it given the fact that we don't know all the stuff that might be in it. As for us though what else can we do but go to work like normal? Unless you think we made ourselves into targets and we should hide too. Do you think we should hide?"
