Shutting off all the processes and functions in the Balrog, Nick left the cockpit and exited his mech onto the catwalk, retreating deeper into the base, not stopping to share a word with any of the others. Collapsing into his bed, he fell asleep instantly, a gun under his pillow. As usual.
[glow=blue,2,000]"..oh."[/glow] Jayna now felt really stupid now. With red cheeks she put her mech in gear and began to make for the hanger.
After parking the S2 in its place, Jayna came out of her seat and to the floor. From there she walked down the hallway, taking off her helmet and undoing her flight jacket. She didn't realize it but she was over heated and sweaty.
Before reaching her room, she made a turn and headed for the showers. She walked in and saw she was all alone and made for the shower units at the end of the room.
Removing all her clothes, she got in and turned the water on before testing it. It was cold at first but Jayna hardly jumped, she was used to it living here.
Her thoughts began to lurk around the Jason. She hardly knew him but still thought of him as a friend. She had been told before not to get attached to people in this out fit as this would happen, the losing of lives and all.
But she began to wonder, should she tell that certain someone she had been thinking about how she felt?
Marc Platt activated the security measures, closing thebase up one more, the huge metal doors where they had came through, slowly closed together autonmatically in a soft automated motion followed by another grid sheet over the top which Marc secured to the ground.
Standing his mech back in postion for the morning, he powered down and exited the mech, immedialy taking the guest byt the shoulders and up on to the platform where one of the plush offices were. Originally it was part of the platform itself but had been over the years sealed off into an office extending half the length of the platform and being very spacious.
As Marc led the guest in he closed the door and motioned for him to take a seat on one of the very comfy looking couches...*
"Now prehaps you can tell us why you're here and WHY you felt the need to break into our home?..."

Scott collapses back onto the couch
[glow=orange,2,300]I've asked myself those same questions repeatedly during the course of the day I can assure you of that.
Well anyway to cut a long story short I was looking for something to do with my life.... you know how some people say they juggle so much stuff they should be in the circus? well it's not that great there I can tell you. So I left the circus and drifted arounded from town to town yeah sadly no change from the circus other than i was now not getting paid anything... Anyway I met up with a nice girl who told me about your little organisation. Trouble was she was more into the idea than carrying it out but she did leave me the impression you guys were on to something big. So I spent the last 3 months trying to track you down to join up and I finally get some news and come rushing in through some crazy sewer system only to meet up with your five point defense net.[/glow]
He notices Marc raise an eyebrow and explains
[glow=orange,2,300]Smell, Rats, Maze, Knockout Gas, Giant Robot Suits, anyway I can understand you need to be hard to find so the gov can't catch you but man you must have real low recruitment rates or did I miss your last message in the LA Post? [/glow]
Will made it galley and turned a nearby vidscreen on and turned it onto a news channel and put the volume up.
He made it into the Kitchen and gathered some supplies to make some food for himself. He grabbed a large pot in case anyone else was hungry and walked and started making his Grandmas famous Gumbo recipe.
Circus eh? And what makes you think you'd be ellible to join the Zentradi, most of these men and women, and the ones we lost are ex-militray, what chance do you think you have?
See here's the problem...", marc continued tiredly pulling out a small pistol from his back, "Once your here, you're here till the day you die. You know about us and where we are and if you don't like our little organisation then we can't afford to have you running around telling stories about us. We have to be very picky about who we do recruit, and so far your the lowest of the low, you're not in a position to critise our safety precautions to protect us...
Now, it'd be a shame to have to use this, so why don't you tell me again why you want to join us. There are plenty of other fufilling things besides the circus you could do, why us? Do you even know what were fighting for what we're trying to achieve? This aint no fair ground ride kid, we lost two men today, you want in?, it has to be for the right reasons then having something to do in life..
So i'll ask you again, what's your real interest in this?..."

Scott wipes his brow, he was more than feeling the pressure of the situation
[glow=orange,2,300]Look I want to make a difference, but for the right people. Yeah I don't know what your ultimate aim is, it's not like the press picture you in a positive way but I've been around ony my travels and I've seen a few incidents. I can't even say they killed one of my sisters or anything but what I can do is guarantee I won't leave you guys in the lurch. Before I left the circus i spent three years training my replacement hating each day but sticking it out so they wouldn't miss me. And what do I bring to the table? hmmmm, well asides from witt, charm and sparkling personality not much. I've got a good arm, sharp eyes, spectacular balance of which i don't really know if that means squat when steering one of those big suits. I could always provide a little light entertainment and work in your mess hall if it's that or *gulp* that[/glow] he says pointing at the gun
*Marc lock and loaded the pistol sliding the loading mechinism up then down, but held his gun bearing arm up...
"Get some rest you'll find that sofa very comfy, we'll discuss it more in the morning..."
Moving over to the comm system Marc Platt spread a message of the Zentradi fixing up their mechs and getting their rest when needed. Also that there would be a meeting 10am the next morning...
As the comm message came through Will continued cooking and Jayna finally found the news channel, and sure enough the press we're still making it their headline story.. Jayna continued to watch as the latest updates came on after the commercial...
On the television a youngish woman in her early thirties with burly red hair read out the latest:
"And in this late breaking report our roving reporter Buzz McCrirrik, has confirmed that the Giant transformer asassins HAVE taken the air base in the Nevada desert where the Giant robot's predocessers crashed over 50 years ago...
Our roving reporter Buzz Mckirrick reports live via the airbase..
Buzz what can you tell us?
*A voice comes over the studio by means of a portible communication device..*
Anna, the only words i can use are devastation utter devastation like that of our capital, Washington... There seems to be little fighting going on, and i can only see a few of the transformers below but it looks like they have taken the air base...
Anna: We already established there was no way to tell this would happen , that more transformers would arrive at this time, mereley being a possibility one day, but what can you tell us about our men and woman at the front line?
Buzz: "Almost everything has been laid to waste, Hundreeds of destroyed tanks, armed buggies and fighter planes litter both inside the airbase complex and all around it in a 300 mile radius.... From this height... Utter devastation.... There is no hope, no hope at all.. Wer're doomed man doomed!!
"Thank-you Buzz!... Hit the commercials Hit the commercials!!..."
"Within seconds, more commercials hit the airwaves again..*
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
