"Since I don't have a combat applicable power, I'll play the snoop on top of the building. Besides no one will complain if I smoke on the roof." Perceptor said. He flicked his lighter several times, but only produced a few feeble sparks. He shook the small plastic item a few times and tried flicking it again. "d**n, its out of fuel."
Arazi rolled her eyes and produced a flicker of flame from the end of her finger, the middle one by the way. Perceptor took the flame and lit his smoke with it, giving her a wink to compliment the finger she had given him. "If only I could do that." he said with a small chuckle.
"It's a d**n fine party trick, but it still doesnt hold up to Zero busting a six pack of beer cooling them off too quickly. He only did that a time or two before figuring out just the right way to do it." She smiled. "Cold hands hide a warm heart or so the adage goes."
"Enough, I'm going to be sick." Perceptor said. "Besides, what if I take a rifle or something, might be able to distract him, ping him when he should be concentrating. It's an idea, you know."
"A bad idea." Spruance said. "When the big boys start duking it out with xeo-blasts its time for the muggles to duck and cover. I'll coordinate from the hovercraft, or maybe we could get a helicopter. It would be faster and quieter than that rattlebox of a hovercraft."
"I'll use my security clearance to get the plans of the Tech center, I think that's where they would take it, and I know the chief of security there. We're not tight enough for him to give us an easy in, but I can see about a few details. Might be able to get him to try and 'recruit' me away from the Carravaggio Center. He's always complaining about needing more good help." Spruance said.
