It was nice when the AEP units wanted to join in on the businesses as well. 06-001 even wanted to dance at the club. We allowed them to join whichever one that they wanted. They could even do both or switch between them if they wanted. Peyton and Connie actually surprised us all when they asked to go work in the hospital. I asked them why. It seemed that on their mission to tie up those loose ends, they got really interested in how it all worked. Radioactive Clan ran an urgent care clinic and explained some things about it. There was a very small clinic in town too. I told them that they could work their as doctors if they wanted to. It was simple for us to forge documents and hack some records in the system. Now they both were licensed lung doctors. Those were called pulmonologists. There were apparently some members of the town with lung problems. It made them easy for the local clinic to hire them. They went as 2 out of a set of triplets with the last name being Terri. Having doctors in the clan meant that they could be used to infiltrate into other medical places later on.
Just having them opened up our range of tactics. We were now officially back open for business. Now we had to decide what we were going to do. We had 3 options for now: Water, Cold and Pierce. We each had things that made us not want to do certain missions. For example, I did not care about the fate of 04-001 in Cold Clan. They could not kill us and we usually just talked them down. Brett felt responsible. Paul hated Volition Clan because they were all smug and cyborg supremacists. I took it as a challenging rivalry. Water Clan wanted a rematch because they felt they could take us on now. I had no clue where they got the confidence. It would not change their outcome at all. Paul and I really wanted to go and fight them. Brett could care less. Mason would not go out on his own because he was a squishy NPC. He was an easy target. Not unless he went out there with someone. We needed a plan. This was something that we need to do as officers of the clan. After a bit of arguing it was decided that I would go to Cold Clan with Mason. Brett would go to Pierce. Paul had Water Clan.
Killing cyborgs was not part of my plan. I also did not intend for Mason to get killed either. Mason and I went over our game plan. He was to watch my back out there in the lion's den. I was going to watch his. We already has a fool proof plan to draw them out. We just had to drive down their road. I was sitting up when they both shot me at the same time. 1 was in the heart and the other was in the heat. It brought me down all the way to 3HP. They shot me with the incendiary rounds. I used magic to heal myself. It had to me a big spell so that I would be ready to meet them. If they sensed weakness, they would go hostile and attack. That was the type of people they were here. When the AEP units arrived, we got out. Mason was ducking down in the backseat at the time. "You never get the hint do you!?" the black haired one said with an amused smile. I was still panting and wheezing. I had full health, but the dull ache in my chest and head was not joke. I was hunched over on the hood of the car while we were waiting for them. "04-002 is right. You're both crazy." the brunette said.
