"Ahem. Why are we still standing here?"
OOC: I saw a man eating chicken today. I ran as fast as I could.
Where do we go? You ought to lead the way.
"Gh! This is just all really... stressful and confusing." Scorpion started walking in the direction that they had been walking earlier. I didn't realize I was paying enough attention to my surroundings to know which direction to go... I never pay attention. Is that because of the merge, too? she wondered.
Kris followed. "Isej il orbod? Inic es irimenzu. Ej il ot 'Merge', oak ots ets ag ilavzan?*"
*You alright? You seem troubled. Is it because of the "Merge", as you call it?
Startled to hear the word spoken aloud, Scorpion nodded. "Yeah. I'm just... I'm part pokemon. I was never a focused person, but now I'm half Skitty... And... I don't want to be on the run my whole life from a crime I didn't commit..."
A semi (you know, the tractor-trailers? Yeah, just needed to clarify that it was that, and not just a partial truck, because I can't remember if it's a space or hyphen. Sorry about this.) emerged from behind the lab, taking a paved road just past where the Merges were, then stopped. The driver hopped out of the cab, sending a Magnezone out.
Then Gracie calmly stepped up to it, a jet of flames emerging from her fingertip. The Magnezone was swiftly burned, and a single glance into Gracie's eyes caused it to fly around in loops, panicking. "Shall we tamper with the man's memories, or simply use mind control? Your call, Rina."
"I'd suggest memory alteration..." The Scorpion Queen inserted quietly. Mind control seems mean.
"Osket ej, manz. Jurejv im, manz. Etidub inters ots etsin ujudargu u ulejit acnarts!*" Kris frowned, "Kapi. Ot en ezom itib okal, ovotogop oka etsin itanzopu s motpecnok goksteneg agnirejnezni. On, ot en ezom itib evs esol, raz en?**"
"Ot en ezom itib okat okal oak ots adelgzi.***"
*It's hard, I know. Believe me, I know. Be glad you're not implanted into the body of an alien!
**Still. It can't be easy, especially when you aren't familiar with genetic engineering. But this can't be all bad, right?
***That can't have been as easy as it looked.
"What couldn't be as easy as it looked?" Scorpion asked, confused.
"Ot.*" She pointed to Gracie's decimation of the Magnezone.
"Oh. Right..." she suddenly pounced on Max's tail, who immediately jumped to the side, flinging her off onto the ground. "Ow."
Rina? What are we doing to that human?
Isn't it obvious? He takes us to wherever he's headed. Then, we can investigate there. Not the best plan, but if Gracie believes it has merit, then why not?
Scorpion stood up and waited for a final decision to be made by Rina.
