Carnegie shifted the toaster in her grip as she examined its underbelly, tilting it to give Asha a view. In response to the doc, she said; "...Prolly tajk a soldering iron ta attach dis cable agin, but dis battery majt lajkly be a few hunnred notches better den regular ones. So's we's back ta lookin fer a workshop... N'd Ah'd really hanker ta see the vents workin agin iffin we's gunna be in 'ere much longer..." She added, and bent down to pat Elvis reassuringly. She took the moment to steady her own jittery nerves.

She straightened and winced at Anya's words. It was a real shame about Dot12, but all things considered, he wasn't really human. Maybe more like a really smart pet you had hardly gotten to know. It was a scary thought, to be inside the belly of the beast like this, every camera an eye, every denizen a potential clawed limb or fang. She shrugged in response and looked around, trying to orientate herself among the changed scenary. Had they already opened all the doors on this level?

She shrugged again at Asha. "Wouddn't count on it, we're pretty far away fra home..." What a disheartening thought. She cleared her throat and reached out for an awkward pat on Asha's shoulder paired with a weak smile intended to undo her words.

Asha nodded, letting out a sigh of relief that no one seemed injured, pulling out her flashlight and kneeling down to assist Carnegie in the robots salvage, hoping int he dim light Carnegie wouldn't notice Aha's tail curled part way under her skirt. "That was a hell of a bang, I wonder if the town felt the shake from it?" She tossed the question to the room, her thoughts becoming more focused on the task at hand and dangers awaiting them deeper in the complex.

Ayna nodded and kept her Uzi at the ready, standing close beside Mr. Creed, alert for danger and uncertain where they were going from here. "I don't get why they wired up the robot in such an obvious manner though, why not hide the bomb inside it so we can't see it coming, or just wire the room and detonate it when we walked in?" She shrugged, "I wonder if maybe the machine in control of this place is testing us, to see how bright us topsiders really are?"

"May I suggest we keep a guard while miss Roberts effects her repairs? I have no doubt some one, or thing as the case may be, will be along shortly to inspect the results of that cacophonous explosion and tidy up any loose ends, namely us." He gestured with his cane to the group, keeping a watchful eye on the door, keen aware of their vulnerable location should they find themselves flanked by attackers.

sorry for not posting in a while, working 7 days a week is slowly killing me

No biggie, swing shift is playing hell with my social life right now, on top of other issues I'd rather not get into here.

(Now this is back moving I will check and post daily when possible.)

Elvis whined uneasily and pushed against Carnegie's leg, the smells and recent noise having him decidedly on edge and longing for the fresh air and open spaces of the world above, he kept his ears pricked for the sounds of movement, his canine senses quivering in anticipation of further danger.

It proved to be a good trove - in fact it appeared that only a couple of things were visibly wrong with it.  The casing had been cracked badly when it was thrown by the explosion, making it easy to see within.  Its battery cable had 'popped' out of main board. It might take little more than plugging it in to reactivate it...

Carnegie raised an eyebrow at the summons, her eyes narrowing, yet she stepped up to point her torch at the upended robot. Using her rifle as a prodding stick, she carefully poked at the prone figure, trying to discern if it too had any explosives taped to it.

Perception to check for any danger, otherwise I loot the toaster.

Snapping his fingers to get her attention, Creed tries to summon Carnegie over to look at the little wheeled robot. "A potential piece of technology that you might need."

Mr. Creed noticed no real distortion of the roof, apparently the ceiling was sheathed in metal and it had not bent. He did catch sight of a smaller, wheeled robot upturned in a pile of debris. Damaged, but mostly still there.
