"If the thing is working at mid-condition, the value increases rate double by each year. I would recommend not." Suggested Craig.

​Virgil makes a small dragon grunt. "Fine, we'll go with it your way." Virgil collasped on the floor and lays there impaitently for the diagnostics to calculate. The look on his face seemed like gravity working against him. He almost drooled on the desk he was laying on.

~Craig and Snowflake~

It was quiet for a few minutes and Craig waits and holds still for the troubleshoot to complete it's work. Then Craig hears a doorknob turn and the four white fingers enter the room with a Sangheili in of black armor. "I heard what happened," said Snowflake quickly in urgency, jogging into the room. "Is he ok?"

The boy peeks at Craig through his invisibility cloak.

Since Snowflake has experienced people with active camouflage, he has a lingering feeling deep inside that they not being alone. Even though he can't see Josh, nor detect him on his radar built in his armor. Craig however, suspects nothing. Not even if he stares into Snowflake's blue eyes.

 

 

The fight lasted for a half a minute until an angry skrill bolts herself to the middle of the fight. The angry skrill known as Tuga, with the help of several Combine Soldiers. Some of the soldiers were even caught in the crossfire. While watching from the far end of the corridor, inside the nursing office, Airchopper tells Opal, "I heard you have Zeke as your instructor. What an arrogant hot-head he is."

​"Craig's fine." Virgil says grumpily without even looking at Snowflake. Finally, the load was complete. "Yes," Virgil muttered, glad that the troubleshoot is at it's conclusion. After a vew texts were displayed about the diagnosing process, the window changes to a message saying "Troubleshoot couldn't indentify the problem."

 

Virgil stared at it with a wide, stressed look. He faceplants his head to the floor with a long groan. "No." Virgil whined slowly. "Why... This pointless wait."

​"Nothing. Worthless. Junk! Outdated trash!" Virgil yelled. It wasn't loud due to the fact that his words were mostly muffled on the desk. Virgil turned his head up and shook it. Then he answers Craig with a squeaky growl, "We diagnosed this whole tome knowing that there are no results."

"I'll take it from here." Offered Snowflake, interrupting Craig. Snowflake touches and drags the mouse to close the programs. He unhooked Craig and takes him in his hands. "Don't cry over a program. It is rare for us elites to cry, but I can't stand it," said Snowflake calmly.

​Virgil's eyes immediately caught Snowflake's. "I am not crying!" Virgil snapped with a squeak, similar to a voice crack. "I... I am just simply displaying my suppressed inner thoughts through look and sound."

"Oh really?" Airchopper said, raising a brow. "I know not much of Zeke. I don't pay attention to instructors, but I know stories of them. I heard that Zeke battled four groncicles when he had a broken wing stranded on Icestorm Island on our origin world. He used his leg to kick the mouth of the last one to kill it. He won the fight with a cost."
 
((Remember Zeke's scar. He has a black, shriveled leg with some of his claws missing and wing partially torn))
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Meanwhile in Black Mesa, Snowflake takes Virgil's word. Certainly there was something wrong with his claim, but he lets it satisfy himself. "Alright then. But I must advise that you do not stress yourself then." Snowflake suggested before walking outside the door. He then mutters, "It causes heart attacks."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Meanwhile, back at the Combine Citadel, Durkaanthurnax was communicating to some bizarre alien lifeforms which looked like giant floating maggots with mechanical arms and oxygen masks: Combine Advisors. Durkaanthurnax was accompanied by the black night fury wearing full Combine body armor that appeared before. They seem to be looking for a human representative for the Combine. "This is a useless task," muttered the night fury. "No one is going to be worthy enough for such a task we barely handle anymore."
 
"You need to know more of the Combine." Exclaimed Dur. "We have more use of humans then you think."
 
One of the advisors speak telepathically to the two. Durkaanthurnax answers slowly, "yes. Let the next one come."
Durkaanthurnax turns to the night fury and asks him. "May you dispatch the next competitor."
 
"As you will." The core closes his eye and nods at his order. His tone said that he doesn't agree with him, but that doesn't catch suspicion. He can trust the night fury, but for now, Dur's trust for him is weak.
 
The night fury opens the doors and the next group of humans enter, being escorted by a Combine commander. "The nexth elexthives are here phor you fthsir, " said the commander, portraying a spit fountain when he speaks.
 
"Excellent." Muttered Durkaanthurnax, secretly disliking this guy. "Now you are dismissed, Nesmitt."
 
"My plethure," he says as he does a gentlemen bow, then walks off with four of his men and his hands folded behind his back. He was a skinny, tall man who doesn't seem brainwashed to join the Combine. He has short black hair and nerdy glasses with green eyes and pale skin. Once he leaves, Dur waits for a growl to happen.
 
"This soldier is not worthy of his rant. Dinok, you mind if I kill him?" Asked Durkaanthurnax. Another Combine Advisor telepathically answers him. Durkaanthurnax hides a groan, assuring that is a "no."
 
"What must I do with these humans?" The night fury asked to Durkaanthurnax. The dragon responds, "Leave them with us and we'll decide." Dur gazes at the night fury for a moment until Dur says to him, "You are dismissed."
 
"But I thought-"
 
"Go." Dur ordered.
 
It's hard to tell the night fury's face expression that is hidden in the mask, but he looks down a little. "As you... wish... Dur." The dragon nods nods and leaves the room.

"Ah," Says Airchopper. "He is fearless, but arrogant. Even though I never officially met him, I hope you're right.

Meanwhile another dropship lands in the landing pad on the intersection. A new batch of dragons most likely.

​"Heart attacks!?" Virgil questioned fearfully when he turned to Snowflake. "I don't want to get heart attacks! That's not true." Virgil shook his head. "That's not true!" Virgil had refused to believe that stress causes heart attacks, no matter how much prof there are. He floods the thought with a high cholesterol by bad diet being the cause of it.

Snowflake groaned and carried Craig out of the room. Hours later, Snowflake finishes up the rapairs and tells him, "Ok, you're good." Oca, who was sleeping on a blanket opens her one eyelid and perks up with a high pitched coo. She gets up and wags her fictional tail and jumps around happily. Snowflake chuckles and holds Oca. Craig jumps off the table and shifts into a wolf and stretches his legs. "You still have that thing?" He questioned.

"She's not bad," said Snowflake, petting Oca's stripes.

"Yah, yah. Like the rest of them and whatever." Craig said with an eye roll.

"You took in quite a beat when I found you." Muttered Snowflake. "Which one of them hurt you?"

Craig thinks. He likes D0g, and Toothful is just an ally. "I... rammed my head onto Dog's arm to have him let go of Toothful."

"Interesting." Said Snowflake. His reaction was expected of a common sangheili, but the only other sangheili he met was Bubba. Suddenly, something fell on his head. A peice of paper. Oca saw with one of her many eyes. She uttered a few noises and leaped off of Snowflakes arms and prances around the paper. "What is it?" Snowflake asked.

"Where did it come from?" Craig asked himself. Snowflake takes the paper and opens it. It was a letter. Snowflake reads it, then he says, "Craig, it's for you." Snowflake holds out the paper so that Craig can read it.

Craig lightened up a bit. He looked up at Snowflake and tells him, "She misses me."

Snowflake nods. "You're daughter sounds wonderful. I never met her, but she loves you very much."

"I know." Craig remembered the talk he had with Alyx earlier. "I miss her too. She's been very lucky," stated Craig, repeating what Alyx had told him.

Meanwhile, watching them, another letter fell on his head. "Uh, Snowflake." Craig called. "I can't pick this one up." Snowflake gives Oca to Alyx for her to hold her, and picks up the letter and displays it so that Craig can read it. When he does, he responded, "Typical."

​Alyx accepts holding a houndeye regardless on how weird it felt. "Ok," She said in a odd tone. She wrapped her arms around Oca. It felt different then holding a dog because of the textured stripes and the three legs. "Oh wow. Never thought I hold one of these. Hey little fella." Alyx finally holds Oca properly when she heard Craig's response to the letter. "What? What does it say?"

Snowflake holds up the first letter and it says that Harper, Craig's adopted daughter had missed him and raised a son of her own. The other note is more of a PS saying that Craig is a grandfather.

"Well..." Craig says until yet another letter came to him. Snowflake did the same thing as before. The letter says the same thing yet again. "Well, if I had a chance to see her again, I will surely give her an 'I get it' notation. But, I'm not so sure about this raising a child thing. Is she ready? Is she suitable? Raising a child needs discipline, and she cries when anyone yells at her. Children do that, yell at their parents when they get mad."

~Snowflake, Oca, and Craig~
Oca leaps over toward her little blanket and rests on it when Snowflake was about to take it. He lowered his hand down toward it and grabs it. Oca's eyes stare at the white scaly hand in caution, then her small beak peeps as a warning. Snowflake tugs the blanket and forces Oca to get up. Upset, she blinks her eyes twice as she makes a high pitched sound accumulating, increasing on volume and pitch. She meanwhile locks her muscles and quivers her back.
Craig knows that sound that a houndeye makes before it uses its sonic shockwave. He turns his pinprick wolf eyes at Snowflake and Oca and shouts in panic, "SNOWFLAKE!!! I KNEW that thing cannot be trusted!!" Craig swiftly charges, drawing his purple plasma blades on his cheeks before the houndeye can possibly hurt him and anyone around.
Snowflake opened his arms and stopped Craig. Snowflake clenches his maniples and holds the shifted core by the scruff. "Oca," rebuked Snowflake, looking back at the houndeye sternly. She stopped with a small whine. "It's fine," Snowflake muttered to Craig. "She throws tantrums, but she's soft."

The houndeye scream caught Alyx's attention too and for a second she was terrified, but Craig seemed more alert. She would've charged if he already hadn't, so instead she runs in case it does it's blast so that she can be in a safe distance from it, staring at the wall she's leaning on with her body. The houndeye stopped and Alyx looked back at the houndeye with a glance at Snowflake.

 

"What in the—" Alyx paused there for a moment, easing her muscles. When Snowflake explained, she eased down. "So you're saying, she bluffs?" Alyx asks, walking closer toward both of them.

"I still wouldn't tolerate with it. One blast is enough to injur, and injuring is enough. I'll see how Toothful is doing." Craig says. He moves up toward a rail and leaps on it while shifting back into a core. He's not quite sure if his hoverpad is active, so he doesn't take a risk if it wasn't. He leaves the room on the rail and heads his way towards Toothful's location.

Virgil and Anti-Hiccup
"I can't read that, I'm a Viking," assured Anti-Hiccup loudly. Virgil flies through and blocks Anti-Hiccup's vision.
.
"Out of my way," muttered the terrible terror as he carries two buckets. Anti-Hiccup moves out of the way and watches Virgil fly to Toothful and places the buckets next to him. Virgil takes off his plastic wraps, then suddenly hesitates. "Wait, do these things have germs."
