As he swam through the tanks Erin noticed a blurry figure on the outside. Figuring it was Miseri he pushed himself up out of the water and plopped down onto the floor. He shook the excess off of him quickly and unlocked his helmet to say hello. Pssssshhhh the sound of excess air leaving the confines screeched out. " hello" he said when he noticed her standing there again.


Miseri plopped down beside him. "Hi. So how did it go? You didn't get in trouble, did you?"

" not too much" Erin paused for a minute " I think.....they got the results they wanted to see and the legs and my suit work fine but I was scolded for pushing too far since my new Oxygen tank isn't in yet. "

"I got fussed at for running off without taking my medicines and going outside, but since I didn't do too much damage to my heart, I wasn't in too much trouble. I just have to be careful not to do anything that makes my heart work too hard. They don't want the stitches holding the implant in place to tear." She rolled her eyes, frowning suddenly. "They're such worrywarts. I'm going to die anyways, the least they could do is let me have some fun before I do. They think I don't know, but I've heard them whispering. The implant I've got is only a temporary one, while they finish working on the experimental one, so it's not made to last a long time. The nurses think it's going to give out before the new one is ready."

"That's........." Erin wound up pausing his own condition came to mind and he empathized with Miseri. Broken lungs would one day leave him.......wiat what would that leave him? His mind was stating to go on the fritz again. He placed his arm around Mizeri " I......I can relate sort of. The real reason they want me here is to study the success of the cybernetics implants made by dr.....umm I can't seem to recall his name. But he patched me up real good everything except my lungs". He tapped on his oxygen tank making a slight metallic clink. " this thing here is all that's keeping me alive and each replacement is getting more and more difficult for them to fuse." They wanna gather all data before before it's lost"

Miseri leaned against him lightly, sighing. "At least they don't try to hide it from you. They always treat me like I'm a child, like I'm too young to be able to handle the concept of dying. Maybe it's because I'm not what they consider sane, I don't know, but for whatever reason, I'm tired of it."

Miseri laughed, wiggling her nose. "Reminds me of a picture my mom used to have on her wall. It said "Live well, Laugh much, Love often" or something like that. She used to say it was her motto." She looked up at him, smiling. "And even if not braver, it makes us luckier than most. At least we're not alone."

Erin smiled and patted her head. He thought he should say something inspiring or thoughtful but he couldn't remember what exactly to say. It was just nice to sit here amidst the smell of the salty water. Away from prying eyes and experiments and tests and needles. One monster to another........no one human to another.

Miseri closed her eyes, listening to the sound of Erin breathing. It was nice to not be surrounded by all those overbearing nurses with their pity and their machines. To talk with someone who didn't treat her as if she was stupid, crazy, or just another test subject. Sitting there, leaning against Erin's side, she felt almost human again.

Miseri turned slightly to look up at him. "Do you remember anything at all from before?"

"Bits and pieces it all comes and goes at random.... Like I can remember that I was operated on but by who and when is a blur. I know I was fixed after I nearly drowned and got hit by a boat, and that my spine was successfully repaired mostly but my lungs were too far gone." Erin looked back at her "what about you?"

"I remember most of my childhood, although sometimes I wish I didn't. After my parents died, my little sister and I were taken and put in foster homes. I never stayed with one family for more than a few years. They didn't want to be stuck with a sick little girl. Because of that, I never really stayed in one place long enough to make many friends. It was pretty lonely. The last family I was with heard about this place from a doctor. At first, I came here for the transplant and for testing, but I still got to live with them. But something, maybe it was one of the medicines, I don't know, something messed with my brain. I started having hallucinations and blackouts, and apparently I would become violent for no reason, although I don't remember it. But they couldn't handle it anymore, and signed me over to this place."

"That's awful!......" Erin started to fidget a little conversations weren't his best and he didn't know how to really talk to a girl. " the labs like to do a lot of experiments my implants were militarized once finding for this place was cut. Your experiments may have gone down the DNA eroute there's a lot of funding and money in the next covert operations department. So if your here it must mean someone somewhere recognizes you as potential....... I'm here all alone too. I can't imagine who would wanna abandon......." His next words were slightly quieter...."such a cute girl"

Miseri blushed, even her ears turning red. He really thought she was cute? "I-I.... umm..." She ducked her head, unsure what to say. She could feel her heart beating a little faster, but for once it didn't hurt, so she didn't worry about it. "I think they said something about creating synthetic organs. I think the reason they chose me is because I already belonged to the government." She silently congratulated herself for managing to think of something to say without tripping over herself. She peeked up at him, her voice dropping to a murmur."And, umm... I think you're cute, too......"
