"I'll explain later." I whispered with a slight smile when Badcop himself decided to enter the room. My smile only grew when I saw he had some sort of scabbard in his belt. I raised a hand to my mouth to stop me from bursting out with laughter. He had the most hilarious expression on his face, but I knew laughing would be rude, so I busied myself with my gauntlet. I looked at the piece that would be covering my arm, it was splattered with carefully placed buttons. an L was inscribed on the lasher's button. A TM was on the technomite button, and so on. I glanced at the level of Aether it was taking to power these guys.
Ah, that doesn't look good.
It was slightly over halfway through the Aether supply. I strolled over to Badcop, whispering so whatever Missy was thinking of wouldn't be interrupted.
"Hey. Do you have any Aether handy? Unless you want Oswald going berserk on us..."
He gave me an odd expression.
"Oh yeah. Oswald is the lasher and Zack is the technomite. Don't question it."
