You had to give it to them. Barbara and Tracie were determined. For my part, I had to pretend I was asleep as I disentangled myself from the many limbs. When morning came around, I was the first to "wake up". I stretched my arms and gave a fake yawn. I shook both of their arms. That was when they got up. The game ended there with no issues. We all knew what was going on from the start. When Tracie smirked at me, I knew something was up. I asked him what was wrong. "Nothing's wrong. You are fully erect. We can play around now if you want." he said smugly. "We want to make you feel good for sticking up for us. We didn't think a human would do something like that." Barbara added. I looked down and they were right. I sucked my teeth and said "It is a human thing. It will go down on its own." Once again, they both looked a bit disappointed. I smiled wide and said "In the meantime, have either of you thought of a place for a date yet? For people that want to fool around, you sure aren't taking me too seriously." Tracie took Barbara off to the side and pulled a cord from his chest.
It was clear that they wanted a private conversation. I let them connect and figure something out while I turned on the television. There was no really interesting things on at the moment. 10 minutes later, they came to me. I just looked at them. "We came up with an idea of what you want." Tracie said confidently. Barbara was smiling along side him. "Oh? What is it?" I asked. Tracie said "You want to go hang-gliding." That was a surprise. I did like that in the real world. I was not sure that I liked my personal interests being read that easily. I just sighed and said "That sounds good. You find a place to do some hang-gliding and we have a date." A promise was a promise. Their faces lit up. I let them figure out all the finer details. 06-001 was a bigger occupation of my time. With the disastrous end to the party he threw, he only had Christopher and Aubrey on his side. The 3 of them became a small crew. They were extra mean to Mason and me when we passed by them. Mason was getting closer and closer to breaking through the data we collected. That would be really great for us to know.
Zipping through all of the code and finding where the Conqueror hubs were would be nice. It would also give us insurance incase more rouge hubs began to target us. I did not want to be the target of another round of PEP unit assassins. That was what we wanted. It would also allow Mason to program codes to hack all of the AEP units remotely so that we could do what we wanted without having to worry about them. When the research for the plasma cannons was complete, we called all of them to the lab. Unlike the AEP and PEP labs, the AEP units could create anything with their nanites. They just needed the blueprints for it. From there, they just had to choose on what part of their bodies would they put it. Because 06-001 was there, he barged in on us and demanded to get the upgrade. Aubrey and Christopher stood up for him. I sighed and allowed him to sit down with them. They were able to connect to the chairs and download all the blueprints. 06-001 looked at his lackeys said "A big plasma cannon should go on the right arm." I nodded. "It's as good a spot as any for it." I said.
06-001 was unimpressed. They close their eyes to visualize it in their minds. Their right arms shifted and wiggled as the nanites constructed the cannon. The others did the same for their own cannons. Connie and Peyton had theirs on their stomach. Tracie and Robin had theirs on their upper back. Ashely and Sterling had theirs on their lower backs. Barbara had hers on her left arm. As they began to clear, I asked Connie and Peyton to stay. They looked very confused, but agreed. Tracie and Barbara heard and decided to stay as well. When we were alone, I pulled out the magnetic organ. I told them about it. "Do you think you can put it in your bodies and use it on missions?" I asked. Tracie took one and placed it against his side. Closing his eyes, he said "I think I can integrate it. It will take some time to forge the connections using my nanites." I nodded and handed the organs out to them. Just like with 12-001, it seemed to be a really energy consuming and painful process. I suggested that they sit on the chairs for comfort. It took them about an hour. "Keep all this a secret." I said.
