We watched them. "Send me your shitty code so my firewall can swat it away. I want to go celebrate with my friends." the PEP unit snapped. He did not seem to think much of Hunter's skills. I had to agree from just a cursory look at him. He looked like a perverted geek. Hunter smiled. "Remember what we talked about? It comes in 4 pieces, and I get 3 chances to break through." I wondered if he actually had what it takes to do it. The 5000s were the middle ground. Because the conversation came to a halt, Hunter sat in a chair next to the table and opened up his laptop. He started working and after a few minutes he said "Alright. In a moment, we will open the door to a new world. It's all ready for you now. I'm about to start. Get ready for it." I looked over to the subject. The PEP unit on the table just rolled his eyes at him. Hunter hit the enter key. The cyborg twitched and groaned out loud. It was painful. Quinn looked at him and asked "Are you doing okay?" The PEP unit just said "I think so. It really packs a punch, but I can handle it." I really did not care whether or not it succeeded.
I just wanted the information that Hunter had. After a bit, you could practically hear a fan as the circuitry tried to cool from the strain of fighting off the hacks. "Looks like that wasn't good enough. That was the first try." Hunter said, sounding more than a bit miffed. "Shut up!" the PEP unit heaved. It had been only 15 minutes. I was a bit bored waiting for it. After another 3 minutes to prepare the next attack, he hit the enter key a second time. It looked like the PEP unit was having a really rough time. After only 3 minutes later, he was nearly writhing in agony. "C'mon! Give up already!" he yelled. It went on for the full 15 minutes. The PEP unit said "Fuck this! Let me out of here right now." He was clearly not having a good time. I said "It looks like things are picking up. Were you able to beat the hacking? It doesn't sound like you are too confident that you can beat the next one." He glared at me. "All of my core internal systems are intact still. I'd rather self-destruct than give up the transmission hub or the local Foundry." I looked over to Hunter. "Did you get anything good now?" I asked him.
He smirked and said "Too bad that I'm not interested in data retrieval I was doing a DoS attack as a distraction for a virus." "No way. I'm a powerful machine far above what your shitty setup could do to me!" the cyborg snapped out loud. He seemed really defensive all of a sudden. "Really? Look what I can do." Mason said as he typed on the keyboard some more. Nothing happened. The PEP unit nervously chuckled and sighed in relief. "I already told you. My firewalls were too strong to get any information. There is no way a stupid loser like this human is going to beat me." he said. "What now? Your subject wants to leave. What is the next stage of this demo? I don't think he is going to willingly help you now. You said you had 3 things to try." I wanted to know. He said "The third one would have been taking over his motor functions." It was too much for the PEP unit. Hunter looked disappointed. He really thought he had something. "That's a shame. These come in 4 parts. I let you bargain me down to 3 for fucking me. I will give you 2 for the rounds we did do, I guess."
We all watched as he walked over to free the angry cyborg from the restraints. The PEP unit decked him in the face and stood threateningly over him. "Fix me and get that shit out of my systems! They will destroy me if I have to go and get it looked at by the others." he demanded. That might be true. He let himself be tampered with by a human reprogrammer. If just tattoos were enough to be shunned, I did not think you could just show up with foreign codes and viruses running in you. Hunter just rubbed his face from the floor. "It's fine, alright. I didn't do anything else to you." The PEP unit just scoffed and said "Fine! I will never come back here again!" He put on his clothes and stormed out of the garage. I just looked at Hunter and asked him "Where can I get in contact with some Libra Force fixers?" He nodded. That was when several bullets blew out the windows. We got down and Hunter said "Fuck this. Who the fuck is tailing you guys!" I had no clue. We were in a gun fight and several figures tried to get in the house. We blasted them all to death until the shots stopped.
