*back at NEU*
*still on top of Crystal* Are you ok?
Yeah... I'm fine bro. But, what just happened?
The capsule... The J-Project! *gets up*
*gets up, coughing* This smoke. I can't see a damned thing.
*appears through the smoke*
*looks at the shadowy figure* Who's there? *draws sword*
*slowly starts walking*
*draws daggers* Stay right where you are.
I can't make it out. Does she think we're her friends?
I don't know. Why don't we try talking to it?
*to the shadow* Can you reveal yourself please?
*shakes head* Weapons... bad... Not friends.
*drops sword* No, we're friends. We just want to know who you are.
I not know.
*drops daggers* Can you please show yourself. We promise not to hurt you.
Ok... I trust. *steps out from the smoke*
I've seen something like this before.
*reveals self* Who are you two?
I'm Crys, this is my twin sister Crystal.
Crys, and Crystal. Pretty names. What is mine?
Uh... you don't know?
*sits down, weeping* No.
Your name is Jema.
Jema? I like that name.
Wait a second. Jema, do you realize what you are?
Sadly, yes. I'm a monster, aren't I? *cries*
*whispers to Crystal* Isn't she technically right?
*whispers back* Don't tell her that. She's part of the Nei prototypes of old.
Will you two be my friends?
Sure Jema. We'd like to be.
*whispers* Are you sure that's smart? What would the Chief think?
*whispers* The Chief needs to know one way or another. And if we can keep this thing happy, perhaps it won't destroy the world like the logs said.
Yay! *dances around childishly* I have friends.
*there is another loud explosion in the room*
What the hell?
What was that?
