Having them around would be interesting. Especially if that was how they were going to be walking around from now on. It was time for me to get to work. I walked to the terminal in the main hall and entered my credentials. I was going to have to add several additions to the clan building. First off, there was going to have to be another sub-basement level. That meant we needed to extend the elevator shaft. That lower level was where we were put the AEP and PEA labs. We would also have a garden for them. For this garden, I decided to make it a rock garden. The other one was filled with sand. Each addition would take about 3 days to finish. To actually power everything, we were going to have to add some generators to the existing bay as well. All in all, it would take about 3 weeks in-game. That was fine with us. I was able to look around and find Mason. I brought the new PEP units over to him. He said "These are the ones that are going to be my lab assistants? Alright." he did not look too sure about it. That was to be expected. He was normally a one man show at his house.
I just pat him on the shoulder. "They were not good enough for the main roster of the clan, but they should be able to help you. I also told them all to take the x-womb for you to have fun with. Mason, you should enjoy yourself. It will work out fine. Just remember to not hack them." I said. He sucked his teeth and said "Of course I won't! I know that already." I chuckled and said "I know. I'm just messing with you." The three PEP units did not have names yet. We were going to have to change that if they were going to be in the lab. Even working behind the scenes in the lab, the Red Grind was still a strip club with back rooms for private shows. People would see them. It was not something that could be hidden. They needed to be able to move around the club without needing to use their designations. 0911 was named Chad. We decided to call 09872 Caleb and 08982 was simply Greta. They were fine with their names. I decided that to break the ice, we should take them out. All the clan PEP units had a welcoming party. These guys were not getting X-frames, but they could still have fun.
As I had already taken Maroon out on a date, I knew the perfect place. We went on the street level and I decided to tell them we were going to a restaurant in the middle of the town. PEP units did not need to eat any food. They were surprised that they were going. They had never been before. First we had to take them go get some regular clothes. That was easy as there was a clothing store near the restaurant. They got jeans and a black t-shirt. It did not need to be fancy. Mason was fine with that being the new lab uniform. I explained as we sat down at a table what we were getting. Lemonade got them excited. Sugar water was a major intoxicant, so drinking was a pastime, and they could join in with us humans. I had already tested out the strawberry lemonade and their new watermelon lemonade. Both were really good. I proudly ordered a pitcher of each to be brought to the table. They cheered as it got to the table. Among the 5 of us, we could handle it. I was wrong. They had extremely low tolerance to it and could barely get past the first glass. They were now piss drunk.
