Cross had given Obi instructions to come to his lab in a few days time, there was an appointment he had with Koudo that involved a field of geysers and a certain Environmental Recluse that needed to be addressed. The aftermath of such rendered the majority of Cross' lab utterly inert. His new found abilities to intuit mechanical energy (given the proper materials) allowed him to begin building it up from scratch but even that was taking its toll upon him. He was more than ready to assist Obi in making his Unicorn horn a proper weapon and making him a Chuunin if he had the gusto, he just hoped he would pardon the mess.

All around Cross lie sheets of metal, stray cables that still sparked with germinating energies. There were statis chambers of animals strewn about with Cross off to the side somewhere toiling with what would be his new pair of guns. He had his work cut out for him.

The few days had given Obi time to think, something most people would probably say he didn't do enough of. Sitting in the old apartment, while Vera was out handling her business, allowed him the quiet and solitude he needed to get his stray thoughts aligned. There had been questions he'd wanted to ask at the meeting, but he wasn't entirely sure how to articulate them in a fashion that made sense, so he hoped he'd be able to now.

Obi hadn't the slightest idea where Cross' lab was, so the time wandering the country to find it was an added bonus. Once he finally found hints of where it should be, from the small amounts of information he had gotten about it, Obi stopped moving.

"Uh, yo, I'm here." Obi called out, patting his back pocket to make sure the horn was still there.

The Crimson Southwest, The Desert, probably the second most uncharted piece of Neovian territory next to the Lucid South. The weather was always the most extreme circumstance. The dry heat so stifling it evaporated the sweat from your pores. The nights were so bone cold it made you want to beg for snow. And yet, there too were organisms and beings that thrived. Here too is where Cross made his home. Cross' lab was its own pocket dimension underneath all these deeply packed sand. It was Kham's own prison after he gave Cross charge of it and its prisoners. A bout with a certain Orca Aburame caused it to fall from it's perch and into the sands but it was quickly repaired and thrived off the waters from geyser pass. A scuffle with a certain Uchiha who also had the same idea gave Cross his eye and turned the lab into its own pocket dimension, but since his Sharingan was something else entirely, he had to settle for it's physical iteration once more.

The lab wasn't underground because Cross was hiding, it was underground out of respect. How do you think Obi was granted safe passage this whole way?

Sheet metal scraping on chalk was heard and a 6X6 foot space in the sandy blood floor opened up revealing nothing but darkness. Obi had to take the plunge to meet his field partner.

Obi hadn't known, expressly, he would be coming to the deserts of the Crimson Southwest, perhaps the harshest environment of Nightmare Country besides the Glistening North, but he left his jacket at home nonetheless and made his trip in only his white t-shirt and a pair of joggers. Taking days off to think about... stuff was all well and good, but Obi didn't want to neglect his training. He planned to do some after this meeting with Cross.

After taking another preliminary look around the area, in which he had never explored himself, he heard a sound that grated his eardrums. He cringed, watching as a hatch opened in the dunes of the desert.

"Must be the way."

He figured, staring into the darkness for a period of time not long enough to matter. He had come here for a thing, and if Cross was down in the hatch then he had to make the venture. So he did.

As Cross suspected Obi was utterly fearless plunging himself into the depths armed with nothing but trust in... what exactly? It couldn't be trust in Cross, Obi hardly knew him even if he did save his life in the Lucid South. Was it trust in the Neovian way that bound them? Couldn't be. This iron will, and blind faith needed to be tested.

The Assassin, turned Self-Employed-Weaponsmith rose from his seat and walked toward one of the shadowy corners of his laboratory. As he trod, his surroundings became that much more illuminated but didn't reveal anything novel about his circumstances. There were still dismantled trials and failures about the floor, and prototypes mounted on walls. Cross never fancied himself a scientist, sure he was smart, but until this point he always relied on others to place the weapons in his hands.

There was a button hanging from a cord that seemed to stretch into an infinite abyss of a sky, he pressed it and it brought forth a magnetic whuum sound followed by the oscillating gurggle of a generator. The Anti-Gravity field was engaged giving Obi the means to float down to the basement level safe and sound, that generator was opening the door to the innards of Cross' lab, his sanctuary, his home.

Obi continued his undaunted excursion into the deep void beneath the shifting sands of the Crimson Southwest, being buffed every now and then by stray particles of sand carried by the wind created when the door finally opened. He couldn't see anything in the pitch blackness anyway, so there was no danger of lifting his arm to block his eyes. He moved carefully, not to trip over his own feet, as he had been prone to do before he and Vera left the Nightmare. If he fell, he wasn't sure where he'd end up.

Sounds clicked and whirled in the distance before Obi was filled with the sensation of weightlessness. The sounds of his careful footsteps soon vanished completely while he floated just so of the ground. It surprised him, but not without giving him a sense of curious wonderment.

"Neat."

He chimed, taking the weightlessly like being in a lake or pond and practicing his backstroke down deeper into the chasm to find the secret lair of the gun toting higher up of the Nightmare. There was a light at the end of the tunnel, not exactly a shining beacon of direction, but he gravitated towards it.

Floating through the door, and entering the Cross Cave, he took a moment to notice the more than noticeable scrap metal and other general disarray. It looked like there had been some kind of scuffle, and not a friendly one, or maybe Cross was just redecorating. Either way...

"Cross, you here? Or is this someone else's secret cave?"

"Nope! It's mine."

Came a voice from the right, in the distance was the owner of the joint who looked more like a greaser than some esteemed warrior. He analyzed for a moment how Obi was still weightless and facepalmed. The failure lingered on his face before Cross swatted it elsewhere and pressed his thumb to the floating button once more, not only would Obi touch the ground but so would the other aimless hunks of scrap metal that got caught in the Cross fire. Cross seemed to walk through the darkness easily despite the raining sheets of various materials, cacophonous booms, and stray wiring as if he knew the place like a blind man.

When he got to the center he clapped his hands twice, there was a growl in the dark distance and the lights turned on revealing what appeared to be a giant garage than a hidden laboratory. In the distance where was a cluster of technorganic tires with their tails plugged into the wall, the ZASHA unit was his lighting before he invested in a cleaner energy source.

"Watch your step, there should be a chair around here somewhere. How was the trip? You weren't harassed were you."

There were treacherous desert creatures akin to the mysteries of the Shadow Lands hidden within her crimson confines, Cross had to fight for this patch of land and even he was still leasing it from the powers that dwell within.

Obi was glad he'd gotten the right place, though there probably wasn't anyway there was another person sporting a secret bunker out in the middle of the desert. If he just so happened to get the wrong place, due to some freaky bad luck, Obi wasn't really sure what he'd have done. Eh, he shrugged the thought off. This was the place, so there was no need to worry.

"Neat."

Obi echoed as he slowly descended to an upright position, standing on the ground, and eyed the mechanical tigers off to the far side of Cross'... garage. The sound of it was drowned out, however, by the booms and clanks of the various hunks of debris losing altitude and falling to the ground. He was in a pretty safe place away from the bulk of the waste, so he didn't worry about getting hit with anything.

"Uh, the trip was pretty tame. Got to see some sand whales, but they weren't really interested in what I was doing. There was this bird like thingy that circled around for a while, but a sand whale got him and that was the end of that."

In fact any predatory creatures that he may, or may not, have passed didn't seem to pay him any attention at all. He remained on guard as he passed through, but for the most part he hadn't any hostile intent and didn't sense any from any of the various creatures he passed either. Most were either preoccupied with one another, or he just didn't attract their eye as perhaps some others would have.

"Would have been sweet to ride one though."

Obi gave a casual shrug of his shoulders, take a brief stroll around to see if he could find head or tails of this alleged chair lingering somewhere deep into the mayhem of this garage.

"So this where you hang out and do... stuff?"

"Yes... Stuff, this place looked a lot cooler a few weeks ago."

He sighed and clicked his tongue, one of the larger ZASHA made their way over to Obi to serve as a seat. The closer she got the full breath of their majesty was realized. She was arguably Cross' greatest work, a battle hardened tiger who wished to fight forever. So the mechanic gave her a pack, synchronized their minds, and turned them into an attack squad. Luckily he kept with the animal motif and made their security protocols smell activated lest he have to force his way through them as well.

"Anyhow, give me a few more weeks and I'll have everything back up and running the way it was. For now, let's see what I can do with that horn. Then we'll get a thorough test of your abilities in the Mirage Arena and hopefully rank you up."

The only remotely organized area was near what appeared to be the center, it had quite a few large cables spiraling toward what looked like an operating table. It came complete with tools a plenty, an advanced oven, and a screen. There were a few remains of what appeared to be pistols on the table already, failed attempts to recapture the fluidity of his previous calling cards.

Obi took a moment in his searching to look at Cross with a mighty big grin. He'd have to just take the man's word for it, because Obi couldn't imagine this place looking any closer than it already did. Sure it was messy, but they gave it charm. Added a level of character. Obi was already thoroughly overwhelmed.

And the encroachment of the majestic beast, known as Zasha, only helped to enhance the feeling, Obi felt like echoing the word 'neat' again, but decided against it. Instead, he swallowed the gut feeling he had to take a cautionary step backwards and took a step towards her. It seemed like she hadn't approach with any intent besides being close, so Obi place a hand on her and looked at Cross again.

"Ah, yeah. Here ya go."

Obi said as he tossed Cross the horn from his pocket and went back to... petting? Zasha. With his free hand, he nervously scratched the back of his head at the idea of ranking up. Last time he'd tried, it hadn't gone very well.

"But I don't think I've gotten that much stronger since my last try at ranking up. I really botched that one up. hehe..."

He let the nervous laughter trail off. His last test was with Sheng and he failed it miserably. He thought he'd been clever throughout the thing, but it took him too long to set up his technique and he hadn't paid close enough attention to his opponent either. Not that he could since Sheng moved much faster than his eye could effectively see.

Cross was ambidextrous, a requirement for almost every new member of The Committee, catching the horn with his left hand wasn't an issue. He set his eyes to work, a pair of somethings he called The Scope. The moniker made him chuckle because he simply didn't have a pair of guns to use them with. His eyes didn't give him molecular vision like he wished- he had tools for that. He was simply inspecting the circular grooves around the circumference of the bone. Like a tree, it denoted how old the previous owner was, and just how much of a bitch it was going to be carving into this thing.

The Older the Unicorn the more the bone began to wither around the edges, and provide our weaponsmith a way in. Luckily for Cross this one was a virtually a newly born stag so he would have to get some heavy duty machinery.

He sat the horn down on the table and walked deeper into the garage, there was a large wall in the distance with a wide array of tools hoisted on its grooves. Cross looked them over like a woman in a cosmetics store; work smart, not hard.

"Why do you sell yourself short if you just willingly throw yourself into mortal danger?"

Being Veras ward had to put a damper on one's self confidence. But still, Obi had to be aware of the spark inside to make him so dauntless. Besides the transition from Talim to Shinsui was a state of being, and it worked from the inside out. This type of exam wouldn't be a reminscient of the past...

Obi let Cross' question hang in the air for a little while. As the man got to work on what he planned to do with the unicorn horn, Obi hands conversely stopped moving. It was a pretty heavy question, at least to him anyway, and he wasn't sure, exactly, how to answer it.

After a few seconds pass, which felt like minutes to Obi, he laughed nervously again, briefly,

"Ahaha I guess I do do that huh?"

The reasoning escaped him as to why though. Usually, in the heat of the moment, Obi didn't necessarily think about the danger, but seeing through what he wanted to do until the end. Once he was told to take things at his own pace, and not to worry about the continual growth of those around him. Eventually, if he stayed the course, he'd catch up. So, effectively, that was really all he did.

"I dunno, I wanna say that maybe because I feel like I have something to prove... to myself. Before I know it, I just end up in stuff."

Cross combed over his tools most of which weren't bound to his previous bio-metrics. They were all various shapes and sizes and had a wide array of different functions. This was a delicate job so he settled on what appeared to be the smallest of the lot- something he referred to as The Splicer. He inspected it for a moment to make sure it was still in working order all while responding to Obi's 'go with the flow' attitude, something that reminded Cross of ZK.

"You're not afraid of failure? If you fail yourself don't you fail Vera, The Neo-Nightmare, Vescrutia?"

Didn't he? The transition to Shinsui, like all the neovian ranks was its own particular sect of awakening. Cross wanted to see where Obi was mentally at before throwing him in the Mirage Arena. First the quest reward though...

Cross spoke a bit louder than he did, because the object of the following statement was quite a ways away.

"Pandy, I need some hotfixes uploaded to The Splicer. Just check if it's got the latest firmware, and if it's equipped to cut through Densities ranked B through S"

He paused for a moment, nodded and tossed the jump drive looking machinery into the distance.

Obi took a deep breath. These types of talks weren't really his strong suit. Articulation aside, Obi had a tough time trying to just gather thoughts necessary to provide an adequate answer. "I am... I am, but..." ---he couldn't deny that he was afraid of failure. He personally didn't know anyone that wasn't afraid of it, but Obi didn't think it was good to submit to that fear. While he was afraid of it, he could recognize that there were important lessons to learn from it. If he never failed, then how could he know what real success was?

He clinched his hand into a fist, nodding his head at this train of thoughts. He figured it was a good answer, but now all he needed to do was actually say it. "ya know... um, I don't think..." ---Easier said than done. He fumbled with the wording, lifting his hand from the Zasha tiger and scratching his cheek while his eyes trailed off in some arbitrary direction. This wasn't rocket science, but it sure as hell felt like it.

"Uh... failure is, umm..." ---he cursed himself for not being able to speak, feeling he was beginning to lose his train of thought. He swallowed his nervousness, or swallowed as much as he could, before he turned his head and locked his eyes onto the back of the man hard at work. He took another deep breath, "I don't think being paralyzed by that fear is a good thing. I think you can learn valuable stuff from failing... every once in a while." Hearing the words flow out of his mouth made him realize just how hypocritical he was probably being, or seemed to be. After all, he said he felt that way, but was afraid of taking another ranking exam. He just didn't feel like he was ready, was all.

The sound of steam, turbines, and electricity filled in air supplementing Obi's lack of charisma and literally put things in motion. A small tray extended from the depths of Cross' garage, on this steel platform was the device that Cross asked for, updated, and ready to be put to use. It receded back into the dark distance thereafter following the same mechanical orchestra. The Mechanic took the device in between his two fingers and inspected it a moment, he set it down on the table before him with a soft clak and applied the proper saftey equipment: A Mask, Gloves, Apron... He was ready to get to work.

"I'm not one for words either, you and I are Do'ers... If you truly believe there's something to be gained from failure then you will stay after I give you this weapon."

A click later and the Splicer was ignited, a thin blue flame no larger than a pencil shot out of it's end. Cross twisted some knobs tapering the width of its length, its heat and began creating his first weapon from scratch; it wouldn't be the last. Once the azure flame broke the surface microsized shards of the horn leaped off its hardened flesh into the distance and showered the vicinity in diamond dust, beautiful spectrum of light spilled into the depths of the space illuminating the garage, drowning the vicinity in a show that would give the Northern Lights a run for it's money. This stray energy wasn't going to waste, it was being absorbed for later use...

"Yes sir." ---Obi responded sheepishly, dropping his head and any inclination to object. It was like he could, since he'd basically talked himself into a corner. He preferred not to do it again with his terribly circular logic.

He cheered himself up a bit by charging a small amount of electricity between his hands until it formed a sizable ball that he proceeded to toss between the hands. It was a exercise in minimizing stress, and Obi figured he needed to keep himself busy while Cross worked. Standing around, staring at him, would do him any good and he tried to psyche himself up for whatever Cross planned to throw at him.

Cross toiled and toiled, as minutes turned to hours. As typical sword forging was equated to hammers and a forge, the addition of a unicorn horn was a stark contrast in sound and in feel. Each cut long those tried and tried grooves was like putting a needle to a vinly record. It was more of a musical chime than the clanging of construction work. What Cross refused to keep in the design of the blade was sent flying into the distance. These leftover flakes went into the garage like snow, but contained pockets of raw energy that the Unicorn absorbed through its might as a young stallion.

Obi's need to pass the time wouldn't go squandered, there were mighty forces at work that required his attention, and all this excess energy lying about (that Cross hopped his was storing) was in fact, attuning, reacting, and amplifying Obi's awareness to inter dimensional levels, not so much boosting his power, but certainly boosting his proclivity to attune to certain histories long since forgotten...

As seconds turned to hours, Obi's boredom would become preoccupied with a more demanding audience, not so much the blade itself, but beings attracted to Obi, and used the blade as a microphone... They called to him now, they tried to reach him.

Obi hummed quietly to himself, tossing his ball of lightning back and forth between his hands and eyed the mechanical tiger in front of him. He could recognize that she was a big cat, but he wondered if she played fetch like a dog. He doubted she did, but it definitely would have been a great thing to see and do. Would have passed the time much faster.

I'm sure of it. He can definitely hear us.

Bah, you've been saying that for close to a decade.

"Huh?"

Obi looked up from the ball of lightning his held in his hands, and took a glance around the lab. He and Cross were the only ones here, but he was sure that he'd heard voices just now. A woman and then a man. They weren't familiar, not to his conscious mind, and he couldn't imagine that he was hallucinating.

"Did you say something?"

Obi called over to Cross, looking towards the man at work again while the ball of lightning disappeared out of his hands.

Cross sat erect with a completed weapon in his lap, he had been calling Obi's name for a few minutes to no avail only for him to finally answer? Sure, if the Assassin had all his tools at his disposal maybe he would have a clue as to what exactly was going on, but for now he welcomed the surprises and ruled it off as simple daydreaming.

He beckoned Obi over to the operating table.

"I said, I'm finished. Come feel the weight of it and whatever else you swordsfolk do."

There the blade lie, it was made of bone so it didn't quite glisten, but it was tough as the stag who fought and died for the sovereignty of his horn. Cross found it fitting, seeing as how Obi struck him as the person to retain his honor no matter how far he would fall.

Obi's face twisted, until it was etched with a quizzical expression, with a huff of confusion. While it seemed true that Cross had said something, it wasn't quite what he had heard. The male voice didn't have quite the same pitch or tone as Cross, perhaps because it had much more base, and the other voice was distinctly female. He'd only heard bits and pieces of what they said, like listening to a phone call while going through a bad reception patch. He supposed he could have just been hearing things induced by the horn dust floating around because of the work being done on it. The unicorn horn was a magical item right?

"Nah... that wasn't it."

He shrugged it off, with a literally shrug of his shoulders, then crossed the room to inspect the weapon that was fashioned from the horn he'd picked up. Contrary to his sister and his clan, Obi didn't really have an eye for swords, hell weaponry in general. It just looked like a sword to him, but he did wish he'd have brought that zanpakuto thing with him for comparison sake.

"Hmm yes, it definitely looks like... a sword."

Obi said, imitating some kind of stuffy art connoisseur, before he took it in his hands. The sword was a straight double-edged blade rather then a single-edged katana. It was definitely more girth than the zanpakuto, considering the difference in type of sword, but the length of the blade was about the same. Just taking it off the table, Obi felt his arms sink, just a tad, because of the weight that the blade had. It definitely wasn't a weapon for someone without the strength to swing it. It'd take some getting used too and a lot of training to master.

"Weighty... I feel like I'd get tired after a few dozen swings of this thing. That zanpakuto katana doesn't compare to something like this."

It was in an entirely different league. Honestly speaking, he never really used his zapakuto, not as a sword anyway. Once he'd unlocked the shikai, thanks to Shinta's --RIP-- help, the sword just decided to stay in bracelet form. He never really understood what it did in that form, because it just seemed like a dud that didn't do anything, and it wasn't that fashionable --like he really knew anything about fashion-- so he didn't mind when it returned to sword form and stopped transforming entirely. Vera tried teaching him the way of the sword, but at the time he was more interested in playing video games. He'd be lying if he said he still wasn't, but he understood the necessity of training and had slowly begin the process of prioritizing it over leisure.

"Yeah it is pretty heavy, I'll give you that."

...As if he was excusing Obi's show of weakness. He laid back demeanor was contrary to the wide array of things streamlining through his brain. Cross sat observant, taking into account the sound the sword made when lifted off the metal plate. It certainly wasn't hollow, it was full of marrow that contained gratuitous amounts of reactive energies and could probably withstand a clash or two from something arguably sharper.

It was pretty medieval in its style and pretty inconspicuous to deter connoisseurs of unique blades.

"Better turn a few swings to a few hundred swings then. The Hilt is long enough for two hands."

A proper mechanic returned his tools to their correct place when work was finished, so Cross rose from his seat and walked the Splicer back over to his notched wall of tools.

Sometimes all you need a push in the right direction, and a child with electric propensity grasping a blade overflowing with latent energies begging to be released was the perfect jump to Obi's alternator. Maybe it would be an ideal antenna that could fine tune those voices and make them more audible? Or maybe it was truly just a sword.

Look at the boy! Weak as they come! No meat on those measly bones! Ignorant of his culture!

The voices returned, and the male voice boomed loudly in Obi's ears. If he didn't know better he'd think there was a large man screaming right beside him, but the only people here were himself and Cross and Cross had just moved away. Obi would have covered his ears, if he wasn't struggling with brandishing this sword that made katana look like a joke by comparison. His sister's sword of choice, an Odachi, was arguably longer and much heavier than this... Claymore.

Didn't stop him from turning his head to look, and he did furiously, but there was nothing there except the mechanical tiger. He furrowed his brow, turning back around to look at the sword some more, using the rest of his strength to lift it up over his head to eye it that way against the light. He figured that that was something people buying swords usually did.

"Guess it was a good thing I planned to do training after this, after your test thingy that is."

You realize, Ucdem, that he turned to look for your voice.

Allow Sadis to do as she will.

There were two new voices now, both female. One with an almost cheery tone and the other with a tone much more refined and serious in nature. Their addition caused Obi to put his other hand to his head in frustration and a tinge of pain. The male voice was still yelling, then there was another man's voice, then all three of the distinctly different women, and now there seemed to be a concerto of these different voice echoing in his brain. With all of them talking at once, he couldn't concentrate on any of them!

"WOULD YOU SHUT UP!!"

He yelled at the top of his lungs dropping his arms with a huff, the tip of the sword scrapping against the ground before the handle left his hand, unable to support the sudden drop of sword, and fell to the ground as well. He groaned,

"Oops."

but at least all the voices had stopped.

SHINK!


The scything noise of sundered metal thundered across the lab. It shook its foundation and brought a few of Cross' hoisted tools to the ground. Yet it was surprisingly sub par to Obi's exclamation for solace which rested in the air making things rather awkward for Cross who was downright confused. Why did Obi need to yell when he wasn't even 20 feet away?

He simply resumed picking up his tools and placing them in their proper places.

"Dude what the hell is wrong with you?"

Cross exclaimed from across the room. Obi was far too young to have any kind of PTSD, if he was really touched then there was a place for occurrences like this.

"You need to take your mind off of things or something?"

"There's these... voices."

Obi said with a heavy sigh. Thankfully they had quieted, in fact they had stopped altogether, and he was able to actually think for a second. He sighed one more time for good measure.

"Sorry, about that. They just got super loud. Like a bunch of assholes talk at each other, not to each other. Let me help with that."

Truthfully, he was just as confused as Cross was about the whole thing. He felt bad for causing all of the man's tools to fall to the ground, so he jogged over to offer his hand in helping put them away. He hadn't the foggiest idea about what any of these things, or what they did, nor where they actually went, but it didn't really matter.

Crimson Lightning and Rage burst into the Lab followed by a cascade of gushing water that seemed to only frustrate the insane organization of Cross' garage. It was Gi'Asa, carrying a hollow of a boy who looked more and more like a corpse by the minute. Urgency was strewn across her grey face and carried well with her voice.

"CROSS?! CROSS?!!?!? HURRY!!!"

She took the stainless steel wheeled table as some sort of operating surface, placed the boy on top of it and began CPR compression in attempts to get the water out of his lungs. The child was so skinny she was trying her hardest not to break him with the force of her palpitations. Gi'Asa had killed, sure, but she had never killed on accident... and she didn't want this to be the first time.

Cross appreciated the help, it was overwhelming at first but really quaint thereafter. Like a break from all the horseshit that was going on, like maybe this whole village weapons-smith thing could work out so long as kids kept coming in here as nice as Obi. Any trained power could notice that Obi's lightning affinity made him polarize energy sources like a magnet. Which was great in a practical sense, but it could could result in the widening of senses the human body likes to keep shut for sanity's sake...

Cross didn't want to overwhelm, nor worry Obi, but he would certainly try and steer Obi in the right direction after they cleaned up this mess.

"It's gonna be alright kid, that goes there and..."

They continued placing things back in their proper place until another hideous noise brought everything back to the ground. There was literally no explanation that Cross could think of that could do this, AND bring water into his lab. But he was pretty upset at this point. He turned his head to look at the source of the earshattering thunderclap.

"What the eff- Oh shit."

It was Gi'Asa with a body, and it was already dying, on his table, and dying fast. Surely Kham would have told her to bring the kid to the hospital unless he wanted this kid to have the works.

Trial by fire.

Cross sprinted to his computer in the back of his lab at breakneck speed and began scrolling through a list of blueprints leaving a clone in his place to bark orders. He knew Obi only knew the name of the Splicer, this was going to be difficult.

"OBI, WASH YOUR HANDS, GRAB SOME GLOVES, GRAB THE SPATULA LOOKING THING, THE VERY LARGE RECTANGULAR THING, THE SCREWDRIVER LOOKING THINGS, AND THE SPLICER AND HAUL ASS TO THE TABLE!"

The Clone of Cross picked up all the other tools that may be needed in keeping this corpse alive for years to come. He too hauled ass to the now operating table and assessed the scene. The boy had no legs, but was still alive, alebeit barely... His heart was overpowering his body with some strange chakra and he was drowning?

"Kid, this is going to be really fucking uncomfortable."

Cross muscled Gi'Asa out of the way and jabbed the boy's lungs with his index in a few preordained positions before fully placing his palm in the center of his chest causing him to belch a fountains supply of glowing orange water across the lab. After which he called down numerous tubes from the darkened ceiling and extended a hand to Obi...

"Spatula-Looking-Thing... NOW!"

Obi followed Cross' instructions on where to put the various devices that he scooped up off the ground. It wasn't with curious inspection, however, because, while he couldn't understand what any of them did, they all looked pretty cool. He resisted the urge to parrot the word 'Neat' as he had done before, just for the sake of Cross' sanity, but rest assured he recited it in his head every time he touched one of the things.

He continued on with this until there was a loud boom which, thankfully, hadn't come from him this time. It was a woman clad in what looked like silver and overflowing with a crimson energy. it took him by surprise, for sure.

He didn't have time to say anything before Cross was already on the move to get the job, whatever job that was, done.

"Roger!"

Was all Obi could muster up to say, wrapped up in Cross' rushed pace, before he whizzed around to search for a sink of some sort, which he found, a pair of gloves, conveniently stashed close to the sink, and compile the implements Cross asked for in his arms.

Then he rushed over, acting as a physician's assistant for Cross, and handing him the spatula thingy that he asked for.

Cross' well learned and obviously practiced instant CPR pressure point water expulsion thing, did in fact get the Fire started once more. It was very effective, but one solved problem just created more problems. There was a reason why Kham wanted this dealt with here, dealt with among murderers. The Son of Fire that lay conscious on Cross' janky operating table was the vessel for a horrible power, this sentient life force, this magical flame really loved it's personal space. So it decided it needed to even the odds a little by growing a few body guards of it's own, out of the boy's own bloody fluid sprawled across the lab.

They germinated quickly, the only warning being the sound of a child jumping on bubble wrapped bloodied flesh. There were five of them and they hyper extended their apendages in attempts to lance Obi and Cross with swift justice protecting their vessel from harm.

Cross' first idea was to bring the flame within Zenith down to mere embers so he could stabilize him without getting anyone killed. That's what the tubes were for, to snuff out his chakra by pumping him full of his own unique IV's. The kid seemed quite subdued already until ZASHA roared in the distance, leaped across the room claws extended and defended Cross and Obi from a foreign attack. The assassin turned physician was already at work priming his tools, but a quick glance in his peripheral spoke volumes. The situation went from bad to worse, lucky he already had an extra set of arms on the way. They were mechanical in nature and were used in cases where Cross needed to do two things at once without digitizing a clone. Two descended from on high and grasped the rest of the tools that lie strewn about the operating table.

"Obi, take care of these Goo things. I'll handle things from here. Best use the sword, hope those voices were friendly."

It was up to Obi and ZASHA to deal with the interlopers. Cross pressed his tool in hand on several spots in Zenith's flesh, it made the segmented areas sanitized and malleable enough to link it to the tubes without much pain or aggravation. Once he was jived up to the system, the Cross at the computer already began siphoning his chakra which would (ideally) kill the clones right? He hoped so...

Everything happened so fast, but not faster than Obi could register. There was a squishy sound, then the roar of Cross' mechanical tiger leaping into action, then finally Cross' orders. By that point, however, Obi had already sprung into action himself, finding that protecting Cross while he did what he needed to do with the boy that was brought in was much more important than fearing the voices in his head.

"I guess we're doing this."

Obi reached for the sword laying on the ground right beside his shoe, with a small amount of hesitation. While he knew that the circumstances didn't call for it, Obi couldn't help but not want to be inconvenienced by these voices. It was already hard enough for him to fight as it was.

Obi snatched up the heavy sword from the ground beside him anyway, shaking the hesitation out and preparing for the fray. There was no time to dilly dally about it, not with... (insert important thing here) was at stake! Voice be damned.

H-hel... C-aa...n... Sa-di...s......

A dissonance, caused by the magical flame of the injured boy and Obi's stubbornness to confront the voices in order to ready himself for action, creating a whisper so quiet it didn't even register to our hero. He took steps forward to stand at Zasha's side, both hands clasp to his claymore and held at the ready. He was experienced in japanese sword combat, but not with a weapon such as this. It was better to wait and conserve chakra, especially since it was so heavy.

The Monsters roared with a bright blazing timbre that mixed the drum rolls of thunder with the crackling embers of mighty flame. Their bodies protruded organic spines that glowed in tune with their audial protest illuminating every corner of this janky garage and hopefully blinding their assailants. Their intention was clear, Kill, Kill everything that moved that didn't bear the burden of Flame.

They wrested the rug of first strike from underneath Obi and Zasha, and continued with its momentum. The blinding light was pierced, moreso bent, by dozens of tendrils that swam through space and would continue unhindered through ZASHA, Obi and ultimately Cross.

Obi took a breath, ready for the dance to begin. Usually, it was favorable to make the first action, but Obi had never been the type to effectively capitalize on the opportunity. It was smarter to act, it was easier to react.

if the noises before hadn't been headache inducing enough, the monsters across the room felt the need to fill our hero's head with their shrieks of combat readiness. Admirable, but Obi wished he didn't have to lug this sword around so that he could cover his ears. It was like listening to Vera's old jazz vinyls on the phonograph with the speed all the way up the disc flipped upside down. Believe him, it was a hell you never wanted to experience.

The best he could do was weakly shield his eyes, with the blade of his claymore, and throw his arms wildly to the right for a pretty sorry excuse for sword slash. Thankfully, the gust of wind produced by the very action was enough to bisect the tendrils and open a small pocket of space for rushing the foe, if Zasha cared to capitalize.

The corpse on the operating table was not diseased, or afflicted. He was gifted with a terrible power, and it was up to Cross to contain it. The Assassin Turned Doctor labored intensely over the corpse working up a sweat far more intense than his most deadly combat regiments. He hadn't blinked in minutes, he was starting at the various facts and figures waiting anxiously for the boys chakra to decrease...

This Kid...

Vermilion light ignited the tubes in a fiery fervor. This amputee of a husk still retained gallons of chakra, but no matter how much was expended, Cross' house guests didn't seem to diminish in strength. Which could mean that the boy's chakra was not only sentient, but germinated in strength when it left the body? That really skewed the lines between magic and science. Cross' gaze tensed to resolute affirmation, there was no stabilizing him. Maybe he could give the chakra somewhere to go, something to combat. He needed to bring the boy back to consciousness, and he had the perfect prototype.

His fingers bounded across the keyboard and back again cycling through his inventory of projects tested and retired, until he arrived. He slammed on a blank key, nearly breaking it which caused a suit of armor to descend from the skies aboard his partner at the operating table. That Cross only had a moment to look it over. It was grey reflective metal, something that was supposed to function more like a prison than an enhancement. Something that was designed to help Kham channel his dark chakras. Maybe it could help the boy. No movement was wasted, Cross got to work on attaching the apendages where they would go. Tissue was cut open and bound to the suit, the face was completely covered. This flame burned too bright for mortal eyes.

Now that Obi bifurcated the tendrils, leaving the gooey glowing remains splattered about the lab, ZASHA roared triumphantly and charged forth. The 4 Legged Assassin didn't need any rhyme or reason to take advantage of an opening, they were programmed with a near infinite amount of combat algorithms and could be mentally organized by Cross if things got a little too weird. It appeared that Obi dawned the mantle of Knight, so his four legged companion was going to do something awfully roguish.

In that short distance between she and the alien creatures, ZASHA reduced herself down to a stunning blur. ZASHA gathered near quantum amounts of speed that caused her offensive appendages to vibrate vehemently, once it appeared adequate she aimed to fly straight through one of the specters leaving no trace. She had one in her sights and leaped toward it's glowing belly. But once she couldn't smell fear of eminent death upon impact, she knew something was wrong.

!!!


The lab still ablaze with blinding light masked the proceedings. ZASHA appeared to dive into the gates of heaven hoping to obtain an answer from God. The only response were the monster's unified screech in confusion. Any proof of the impact was silenced, and snuffed out the countenance that once sought to blind Obi. Now the picture was clear: One of the 5 flaming ghosts were not appalled at it's sudden loss of limbs, because they grew back, but at the tiger sitting in it's now gelatinous belly. But now that the aggressor was taken off the battlefield the remaining four ghost charged Obi with hellish speed hardening their limbs to proportionate densities. They could surely overwhelm the kid with numbers and proceed to abduct the body they sought.

Obi could see stars in his field of vision, but he was able to function... for the most part. The shielding had been enough for him to retain a level of vision great enough to continue acting, and with time his eyes would return to normal on their own. All that was well and good, but...

T-the... re... c-... COMING!

He was rushed from all sides for a pincer attack by the enemies that Zasha hadn't been able to take care of! Our young hero wouldn't have noticed, not as quickly as he did, if the voice in his head hadn't screamed it's warning. It was stilled distorted, there was much more to the message for sure, but the intent was all too clear. It cared about his safety, at least somewhat, for the time being. This was enough for Obi to trust anything else it had to say while he navigated the battlefield.

"Never thought I'd thank crazy voices, but... thanks!"

He was forced to make a decision now. With all his flanks covered by an individual foe, and a heavy sword that he could barely move, let alone move with, in his hands, evasive maneuvers weren't the most practical solution, unless he dropped the sword. Not currently wanting to do that, he couldn't do anything more aggressive either. Rushing one enemy would leave him completely exposed to all of the others, and while he admired the speed and power of the Zasha, he didn't exactly think she'd make it in time to stop him from being skewered like a shish kabob.

Oh! He had the perfect thing for situations like this!

He flipped the sword around in his hands and plunged it towards the ground as hard as he could, throwing his entire body so desperately into the action that he was forced to take a knee beside the sword with both hands firmly grasp to it's hilt. The action, of course, wasn't meant to puncture the floor but give that illusion, all he really needed was for the tip of the sword to make contact, which he eyed as a focal point. Lightning chakra sparked and jumped around him and the sword before he gathered the amount required for his technique in his hands.

With a mighty warcry, lightning chakra discharged from his hands and danced across the sword, but not with the intent of electrical infusion. Obi didn't suspect that it was conductive, though if it was then it would do wonders in increasing the potency of this move. The lightning chakra funneled to the tip of sword and, at the convergence, it spread across the floor around him, stretched and shaped to look like a spider's web. The intent was for it to electrocute anything and everything within the circumference of the circle, encroahing jello monsters included. The vibratory prowess of lightning chakra was tried and true, and disruption of corporeal structure for jello monster was the goal!

The operation could be considered smooth, if it wasn't for the cacophony in the background. Cross could hear and isolate every sound. Something got ZASHA and it made him want to trade places with Obi to properly administer payback. In those dark and lonely times, they were his pack.

But this was the caveat of his title. This is where he was best suited, and It was making Cross elated. He was a man who lived on the edge, this was not a good sign contrary to empirical positives. Tissue was wound tight to metallic ligaments, and once they adhered to each other, whirls and clicks were the fanfare of eternal servitude. The more limbs cross attached in their proper place the lower the kids chakra pressure dropped to normal expulsions. The armor, grey as a brooding fall sky, and dusty like a neglected heirloom in an attic was designed to metabolize chakra. It could even store excess for further use all while preventing harm to the body. One small problem though, it was heavy as shit. It was Khams after all. The kid didn't look all that fit, if the plate didn't crush him, gravity would. It was customized to allow its wearer to take it on and off, but the thing was keeping the kid alive. There was no taking it off.

No sign of the diminishing chakra having any effect on the creatures though. It was up to Obi to keep pushing until Cross' load was completed. And hopefully he would not forget hunters best friend.
