Me: *wakes up in a glass containment next to Shriek’s containment*
What is this place?!
Guard 1: You dont need to know that… and dont think about escaping. If you even make one attempt I will press this button and it will release Shriek into your containment and like any animal he will eat you….
Me: *looks at Shriek*
oh no! they got him….
“Meanwhile back at the Grand reef”
Johnny: WHERE ARE THEY?! THEY TOOK MY BROTHER!!!
Michael: They are going deep… Maybe they’re old base in the lava zone.
Johnny: ARE YOU FRICKING SERIOUS?! WE CANT GO THAT DEEP WITHOUT A CYCLOPS….PLUS KALIBER HACKED OUR COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE SPACE STATIONS SO WE CANT EVEN CALL FOR A CYCLOPS!!!
Michael: But my old seabase in the safe shallows is still intact and there are a lot of medical cyclops!
Johnny: *facepalms* I though you were a….
never mind. MEDICAL CYCLOPS CANT GO THAT DEEP….
*comes over to where Micheal is*
THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT! YOU TOLD US TO COME HERE!!!
Michael: Hm… i know some old family of Sammy. Maybe i can feed you to them if you dont stop.
Johnny: OH YEAH?!
*holds up a photon rifle at Micheal.*
WHAT YOU SAY NOW PUNK!!
Michael: Hm… Well i see a crabsquid behind you… Funny things btw!
Johnny: YEAH RIGHT!!
*charges up photon rifle*
Madison: HEY! Stop fighting...we need to find stephen and shriek….
Michael: We can find them if we go with the medical cyclops. And this one isn’t normal but has custom modifications. If i want, that thing can dive 5000m deep
Johnny: *puts down the rifle*
WE are rescuing my brother...not your precious friend Shriek….He is just an animal…
Michael: Do you have a pet at home? A dog or something…
*clenches fists and comes to punch micheal*
*Michael dodges and punches back*
Johnny: Why you!!
*gets up and tries to punch him again*
*Punches again but it’s a bit harder*
Michael: If you don’t stop now, then I'm gonna kill you personally!
Johnny: You can’t even do that!
Michael: Then i feed you to a reaper!
*Johnny pick the rifle again*
*Michael gets angry and shoots a propulsion shot at Johnny*
Michael: LISTEN YOU PIECE OF POOP! You stop now or i throw you in the air!
Madison: ENOUGH! BOTH OF YOU! IF YOU KEEP DOING THIS, WE NEVER GOING TO FIND THEM! Michael, let him go. We will go to your base!
*Michael let Johnny go*
Johnny: FINE !!!
*drives his seamoth in the direction of the floating islands*
Madison: So in which direction is your base, Micheal?
Michael: To the south!
*grabs the seamoth controls and drives towards Micheal’s base*
[back at the Kaliber base]
Me: *puts hand on the glass of Shriek’s containment and turns on the portable translate which Micheal gave him*
Are you okay? Shriek?
Shriek: I…..DO….NOT…...TRUST….. YOU!!!!
*tries to ram the glass but fails*
Guard 1: Yeah keep talkin….maybe he’ll get extra hungry and try to eat you…
Me: Shriek… I need you to trust me if we are going to make it out of here….
Shriek: *roars* I DONT EVEN KNOW YOU!!!
Me: Shriek calm down….i can get you out of here
Shriek: I CANNOT TRUST YOU!!
Me: fine...dont trust me but I will get you out of here!
[at Micheals’s base]
Michael: There we are! My old base. Wait! I forgot that there is an emergency communicator! We can use it to warn Alterra!
Madison: Is it still working?
Michael: There is only one way to find out!
Madison: *tries to activate the communicator*
Communicator: YOUR MESSAGE IS DENIED.
Madison: dang...well now we know it isnt working…. so where is that cyclops of yours?
Michael: This way!
*They are heading to the cyclops*
Michael: Hm… It’s still intact!
Madison: its a bit rusted...can it handle the pressure?
Michael: Hm… Well if the upgrades still work then it can handle! And it looks like only the decoy upgrade is busted!
Madison: wont we need that to get past the leviathans...plus your upgrades will be useless without that
*points at a rusted part of the cyclops*
If that thing breaks, then this thing will get flooded!
Michael: I can fix it in one hour! There are enough reserve parts and they are put in special containment. With that,
they can last years
Madison: I see….well I’ll go check out your base if you dont mind….
Michael: Sure, maybe you find some nice information or research.
Madison: mhm…. *goes into a room and finds some files*
*she notices a picture of Micheal and someoneelse*
Madison: Micheal? Who is this?
Michael: Oh, him! That’s my old boss, Rinject!
Madison: Old boss? What happened to him?
Michael: Not bad… He just got another job for Alterra. And now Frank is my boss.
Madison: I see…. um. what was Shriek talking about? That you promised him something and that you didnt come?
Michael: It’s a long story but a friend of ours called Sammy died in the war. I promised Shriek to come by some time to give him some time with friends but Alterra forced me into a break.
Madison: Oh, I see but that is a silly reason to get angry over, right?
Michael: Not for Shriek. I was the only one he had back then. His family got killed and so is his friend!
Madison: oh, maybe I can find him a place where he can rest in peace, A large containment right between the grand reef and lost river?
Michael: No! He must live in freedom! This isn't the first time he got caged!
Madison: well I doubt alterra will allow that… They want information on all creatures… and they wont let them go until they get it all…
Michael: If Shriek gets contained right after he escapes, then he will never be able to talk to us! Do you want that to happen?
Madison: no...not really. Well Lets go find him…..
