"...Thanks."

He looks up. He blinks confusedly. "Lorica."

Permalink

"Figured. Bot'll have told her if she had a second. You okay to wait here while I go back?"

Permalink

"I don't know. I don't know how long I was there."

Permalink

"When'd you first hear her?"

Permalink

"Way before she got in close - it was a bit past nine I think -"

Permalink

"Bot says you're squeaked under the limit."

Permalink

"Then you should go - thanks -"

Permalink

"'Course."

And he disappears.

Permalink

And he curls up and shivers and wonders how they set the time limit, how sure they are...

A Rete bot finds him an hour later.

Permalink

It settles near him. "Hi. Are you doing okay?"

Permalink

"I think so? How's Baltimore."

Permalink

"I don't know, I'm operated by the clean version back in Brockton Bay. Transit was pushing the limit and came back and mentioned where you were."

And Lorica doesn't have a limit. Lucky Lorica.

 

They'll probably wall Baltimore off and shoot anyone who leaves. He feels sick in a new way distinct from the three or four ways he's already feeling sick.

 

He closes his eyes. He really doesn't feel like singing.

"Do you need anything?"

Permalink

"No. Thank you."

Permalink

"If you don't mind I will stay here so Lorica can find you afterwards."

"Lorica is home safe. The fight is over. She needs food and ideally a nap but if you would like to be brought to Brockton Bay now I can send you a larger chassis."

Permalink

 

 

"It can wait. What're the casualties like -"

Permalink

"Approximately the southern half of the area enclosed by the Beltway has been written off."

Permalink

Nod. Wince. 

 

He feels like music that isn't singing but doesn't know how to make any. 

 

Oh, right. The Internet exists.

 

"Rete can you play, like, piano pieces."

Permalink

Rete picks out some Beethoven.
