Joey strode out from his room early that morning, and began knocking on Ferrous's and Inferno's doors.
"C'mon kids! Up an' at 'ems, you guys've got a date with the whitest black tailor in the world. We're leaving in twenty minutes!"
He wandered down the hall, careful to avoid the blood peeling from the walls, ceiling, and floor, and went to the living room after finding a carton of orange juice and draining it for breakfast. He noticed the shield-boy talking to Roach. He held Madeline at an angle away from his body, arms folded.
"Yeah, he's with me an' Blondie, along with a couple other guys here. I giving you this warning for free kid, don't mess with Red, and you won't end up skinned alive. Leave Inferno alone, and Blondie won't beat the ever-living shit out of you. True story."
"Now, to business, you got a name?"
Rugal, After a grueling battle between his mind and the comfort of his bed, Finally got up wearing only his pants.
He dragged his body past Joey, Roach and Thunder before grabbing a Protein Shake.
"Yeah, so hi, I'm Roachman. I prefer that name, or abbreviated, Roach." he mumbled, without gesture. "I hope you understand my apparent demeanor, last night....normally people don't break into houses unless they plan to take stuff....I'm familiar with that." he nodded awkwardly, muttered "now, breakfast", and left the conversation.
"I told you last night, you can call me Thunder. And I also told you last night that we are all friends here. If anyone's gonna start something, it seems like it would be you."
With that, he followed Rugal to the kitchen and grabbed a glass of water. After his morning workout he was slightly thirsty.
"Yo, Joey, When you heading to you-know-who with Inferno?" Rugal asked before he downed an entire carton of bended eggs with Protein Power.
"Sorry, kid, but a name can be a funny thing to a guy that breaks into abandoned houses. Just trying to make certain of who you said you were. And also just giving you a warning is all, not trying to start anything...yet."
"Funny how hard it is to tell you and Blondie apart, Thunder. I hope you can live up to your name. Whenever you see Metal Head and Inferno, tell them I'll be out in the garage. With my new car, I've gotta get some new plates for it."
Joey walked out of the room as he said this, and headed towards the garage. Inside was still his new Mustang, beautiful it was. He saw some rust spots and metal shavings from Ferrous in the back, and so he began by brushing them out of the car. He was very protective of it, it was almost completely original work. At least he thought it was.
Red awoke when Joey knocked on Inferno's door, and changed into her Red-0 outfit (minus helmet, voice changer, and cloak). She went downstairs to get something to eat. "Good morning, Rugal," she said, before seeing the half-dressed man in the room. "Um, am I missing something?"
"Oh yeah, Red, Thunder, Thunder, Red, He...brokeininthemiddleofthenight...Still, he was from the Prison break so I guess he's joining us..." Rugal said before he grabbed some kitchen towels and wiped his mouth.
Thunder put down his glass of water and held out his hand to Red for a hand shake.
"Nice to meet you Red."
"Yeah....like I said...even so-called "bad guys" know breaking so-called "trespassing laws" is deviant, thus granting suspicions...n'less there's somethin' wrong with ya..." Roachman matter-of-factly said, while chewing on expired bacon and pouring chocolate milk into a sizeable bowl of cornflakes. He noticed the wierd looks he was getting. "Well excuuuuse me! They don't make chocolate cornflakes anymore, so I'm improvising!" He stopped pouring, picked up the bowl and started to shovel massive spoonfulls into his mouth with the largest dessert spoon you'd ever seen.
Rugal finished his shake and proceeded to dump Zeph's body in a black bag on the curb.
On his way back in, He knocked on Inferno's Door.
"Hey, Inferno, Rise and shine, you gotta date with the tailors..."
Learning his Lesson from last time, He leaves the Door closed.
Red shook Thunder's hand, accepting the circumstances as they were. "Look forward to working with you, Thunder." Introductions over with, she went to the fridge and grabbed a pear. "Did a guy in a suit mention anything about leaving?" she asked, figuring Thunder hadn't met Joey formally yet.
"Oh right, Joey. He said he would be in the Garage." Thunder said as he walked back over to the couch.
"Are you guys going somewhere?" He asked as he put on his boots.
"We just have some business that we need to take care of," Red explained before continuing to eat. No need to explain what they were doing at the moment.
"Maybe I could help. If I do well maybe I could stick with you for a while?" Thunder suggested, continuing to put on his costume.
Red thought for a moment. Since the techie's died, even if Thunder asks for a share of the gold, we're out no more than we were before... and his assistance will help, considering even Joey doesn't seem to have much control over the situation.
She then replied. "Sure, we could use the help. I'll tell you what we need done soon."
As Amelia watched from the rooftops, she saw something headed this way, it looked all for the world like a living suit of armor.
Well, there's something you don't see everyday... Wait... didn't I see a suit of armor at the prison? Huh. That warrants some checking out...
'spotted any one yet?' said terry
'when I find someone who could have soup I will tell you, so can you please shout up'
'talking and listening is all I can do know and I am going to make the most of the first one. Also who makes a helmet with no eye holes'
'It was decoration' xailus started getting frustrated and wanted to get terry to shut up as soon as possible, he looked around everywhere fro anyone who could have the soup that terry wanted. He saw someone on top of a roof, 'HEY TO YOU HAVE SOUP!' xailus shouted at the person.
Amelia almost fell over. ...What the hell was that? She looked down at the figure below. Did he see me? Crap...
Still, knowing the jig was up, she figured, "screw it", and jumped down to meet the armored figure.
"So," she said, "What's this about soup?"
'I asked for soup last night and I still haven't got it'
'that and he won't stop going on about it'
'well I need to eat'
'no you don't I have told you this'
'well I like to eat'
'that explains a lot'
'hey what's that suppose to mean?'
'you know what it means,' xailus then gestured towards Amelia 'anyway to you have soup?'
"Hey, Sleeping Beauty, come on, Joey is leaving soon!" Rugal said as he knocked slightly harder this time.
"Um... no, I don't have any soup." Amelia said, confused. Ans she was pretty sure she heard more than one voice talking...
"So, why are you hanging out here, of all places?" She asked quickly.
'well me and xialus can only agree on the fact the ocean is pretty nice'
'its a lot nicer then listening to you'
'well I don't like talking to you either'
'well why do you start talking to me all the time'
'for the simple reason of pissing you off'
'terry if I could I would chock you'
Xailus focused back onto amelia 'so what are you doing here and why should I waste my time on you?'
"I heard a commotion over there, and figured I'd give it a look. I'm not sure what's going on, but some guy in an eye-gougingly bad outfit seems to be doing some form of business. I figure I could drop in and see what he's up to, if you're interested..."
Xailus started to leave when he realised that he could talk to someone other then terry. As well as that from what they said it would probably be someone who could handle themselves in a bad situation if they want to interrupt the business deal of people who walk around with guns.
'just one question, are you a hero?' xailus said tightening the grip on his trident.
As Rugal waited for Inferno to answer, he found a note from Cutter and Ferrous, stating that they left for quote "To pursue other goals"
While he was saddened by this turn of events, he was glad that he would receive some of the 10 Million after all.
Hy, Sleefing Beuty, com n, jey is levin oon*BANG BANG BANG*
wah?... Mmph. What is it? Coraline sleepily picks herself up. Wait, aren't we going somewhere? I should probably get ready.
Coraline throws on shorts and a tank top, and then opens her door to grab some breakfast.
"Hey there." Thunder said to the woman that had just come in.
In the Hall because the Wednesday lag ate 3 of my last posts
"Morning Inferno, Guess what? Ferrous and Cutter Ran away together AND We got a New team mate last night, His Name's Thunder, He should be in the Kitchen, We'll Head off after you have a bite..." Rugal said before slipping into a T-shirt and Jeans.
Amelia scoffed. "Me? A hero? Don't make me laugh as if I would align myself with those nosy do-gooders." She gave him a sideways glance. "How about you? Are you a hero or not?"
'I am xailus vilethine, the true king of all and all who oppose my throne will be vanquished, while those wh-
terry interrupted 'ah cut the the chase already, he is a magical suit of armour with an ego problem fused to my flesh, who wants to rule the world so he is a villain'
'And the foul-mouth imbecile inside me is a hermit who knows nothing about letting his presence known'
'well no one's gone miss you in room, by the way I am terry'
'also I am not a magical suit of armour my soul is merely trapped insight of a suit of armour
'I would call that magic'
Xailus started rubbing his forehead causing a screeching noise 'Any way' xailus pointed at amelia you, lead us in the direction of the man doing business
Magical armor fused to a body? That's a new one... Amelia thought. Still, maybe I can use him...
"Right, this way then," she said, "And we'll see what all the fuss is about." Hands glowing bright green, she was able to jump up back to the rooftops.
"You coming or what?" She shouted over the edge.
Good so she has powers xialus thought watching Amelia, he walked up to the side of the building and lifted his trident into the air and pushed it to slowly raise himself up to the rooftop. 'lead the way, no matter how fast you go I will get catch up eventually'
'like you eventually got to the docks'
'your the one who took two days to direct me there'
'you still the one who took two days to get there'
'your logic is born to frustrate'
'I thought you would have caught on to that by now'
Several Guards Finally Fish out the Body from last night.
They Freak out and the Dock is put into Alert Status.
Guard Patrols are stepped up as the Man in the Pink Suit sighs as he drinks his coffee in the Main Office towards the centre of the dock.
Rugal headed for the where Joey was sorting out the Cars.
"Oi! Joey Wheeler, Cars ready yet?" He asked as he leaned up against the side of one.
