Mia sighed heavily.

She assessed the situation for a moment; the last thing she wanted to do was waste time with names, introductions, and other sickening niceties, but at the same time the "direct approach" wasn't getting her what she needed.

"Agent Mia, Department of Floaters, RC 1817," she said, extending a hand to the boy. "My partner is Michael Green. If necessary, I can provide contact information for both of us."

And, technically, for Agent Desdendelle, but that was beside the point.

  • "Why should I?"JulyFlame, Tue Sep 1 18:11
    Day stared Mia down. "I don't even know who you are."
    • Mia sighed heavily. — Alleb, Tue Sep 1 18:15
      • "I'm Sax," Sax cut in.JulyFlame, Tue Sep 1 18:32
        "And this is Day. My partner." He was getting increasingly fed up with them, and really didn't feel like he was able to stay standing up without support much longer. "Improbabilities. I think we're... more

          ...and shook it once before letting go. "What kind of improbabilities?" she asked.
          • "Things like this, I guess," Sax said, dryly.JulyFlame, Tue Sep 1 18:37
            "We're supposed to be the 'Weird Filter' department, I think," Day added.
            • She refrained from any snarky comments; these two weren't pushovers like Greenie. Mia should have realized that sooner. ((It's probably apparent, but just to avoid confusion, that's her nickname for... more
              • "Weeeell," Day started.JulyFlame, Tue Sep 1 18:45
                Sax cut to the chase. "Yes. But maybe we can, I dunno, start heading to Medical?" He sounded more pleading than he was aiming for, but that could have also gone with the fact that he was in Day's... more
                • ...and mentally kicked herself. No wonder they had insisted on moving through the hallway! If Mia had noticed it sooner, she would have adopted a totally different strategy. "I can splint that," she... more
                  • "You have something to use as a splint?"JulyFlame, Tue Sep 1 18:53
                    Day looked at Mia with some consternation. "Go for it," Sax said. He moved slowly to lean against one of the walls, and closed his eyes. "Just don' mind me."
                    • (Can a third join the party?) (nm)Mister Shoebox, Tue Sep 1 19:16
                    • Mia nodded. Alleb, Tue Sep 1 19:04
                      Then she turned and slammed her monkey wrench into the Generic Surface wall with as much force as she could muster. It broke through the grey material after a few swings; she aimed the wrench a few... more
                      • Day looked at the ruined wall faintly. "Or at least you," she amended. She looked at the bar of Generic Surface. "That was pretty smart, though. Sure it'll work?"
                        • "It should," she said. Alleb, Tue Sep 1 19:12
                          She handed the grey stick to the wounded agent and then flicked out the pocket knife she had noticed in her pocket earlier. She began cutting off her left sleeve for the splint, then her right. The... more
                          • "Where'd you learn how to do this, anyway?"
                            • Mia straightened out the agent's arm and laid the stick of Generic Surface on it. She tied the cut sleeves above and below the break, making sure they were tight, but not tight enough to cut off... more

                                  He looked at the newcomer blearily. "Day's too young and I don't smoke," he said, motioning at himself and then Day, who was looking at the splinted arm with some relief. "He doesn't either," Day... more
                                  • Mia shook her head. Alleb, Tue Sep 1 19:50
                                    "I'm rather attached to my lungs," she said. She realized, with an odd feeling in the pit of her stomach, that this was the longest conversation she'd carried on in months.

                                        "I had no idea anyone could do that," he said. "I'm Sax. That's Day," he motioned at his partner. "I was about to say, you look like the weirdest Fallout ghoul I've ever seen."
