We rejoin Jean Jack and Little John as just as they have come face to face with their first Bioroid...
SDATCHER act 5
Little John: Jack! your Blaster
Jack: Will it work against this?
Little John: I'll make an analysis, just buy me some time
Jack: Alright, i'll try
Little John: I'm counting on you
Jean Jack shoots several rounds at the Bioroid
Jack: It's no good, he's absorbing the shots
Little John: Jack be careful, I'm picking up a strong thermal reading… it's a cannon
Jack: what will happen if we get a direct hit?
Little John: It'll be just like bathing in a volcano
Jack: I don't like the sound of that!
Little John: Please take cover
The Bioroid fires a blast from it's mouth
Little John: Analysis complete, it seems that it's no more than a dead body that's been re-animated, it's being controlled by the main CPU located in the head, aim for that!
Jack: The head! Here goes
Little John: Jack hurry he's going to attack again
Jack: Eat this!
Jack aims for the Bioroid's head and shoots
Dominic: Eh… I can't move… this is strange…my energy levels are stable… but… my body feels hot… extremely hot… I'm burning…
The Bioroid explodes
Jack: John, we did it!
Little John: Don't worry Jack, i'm your partner, i'll always watch your back
Jack: Yeah I can see that, thanks
Little John: You head back to the diner, I'll clean up here
Jack: OK John, try and find out if this is one of those bioroids
Little John: I think we can safely assume that it is.
Jack: I'm heading back, Chris knows something… no, more than that… he's hiding something. I'll leave the rest to you
Little John: Understood
Jean Jack returns to the diner where Chris is sleeping, the waitress Lisa approaches
Lisa: Chin up Jack
Lisa give Jack another cup of coffee
Lisa: This is more expensive than the last stuff
Jack: Haha, it smells great
Lisa: you don't want to eat anything?
Jack: sorry Lisa, today… I don't have much of an appetite
Lisa: That's fine, what about your friend?
Jack: I'll let him sleep a little longer
Lisa: OK call me if you need anything
Jack takes a sip of coffee and Chris wakes up
Jack: Ah, you're awake
Chris: That's better, my head feels much clearer, Thanks Jack
Jack: Chris, you didn't just come here to tell me about what happened on that ship, there's something else you want to tell me, am I wrong?
Chris: Haha, are you Ok? You are far too suspicious you know
Jack: Chris, look at me and tell me there is nothing else you want to tell me… swear it!
Chris: Swear…no Jack… I can't. There is something, something I can't hide
Jack: Tell me
Chris gulps his coffee before continuing on
Chris: Jack, everything, the ship, the monster, it's not just Rug Hunt… your wife Alice is involved too
Chris: Yeah, when I was investigating the ship's records her name came up… of course I'm sure it must be some kind of mistake
Jack: ...Thanks for telling me
Chris' phone rings
Chris: May I?
Chris: This is Christian… what!… this… yeah that's right… he's right in front of me, we're together… understood… Jack, it's Alice
Jack takes the phone from Christian
Jack: It's me
Jack: Where are you
Alice: I'm… looking out over a spectacular view
Jack: What are you doing?
Alice: Jack, you sound well
Jack: I've been keeping busy
Alice: You never change do you officer
Jack: I'm sorry
Alice: Jack, the reason I left…
Jack: I know, I didn't protect you
Alice: No… nothing like that, I just lost hope… in this world, in everything. I couldn't bear to be with you, every day... not knowing if i'd ever see you again
Jack: Alice, what are you trying to tell me?
Alice: I was always proud to be a policeman's wife, but I can't go back, I must look forwards
Jack: Alice, do you know anything about the ship?… the Russian cargo?
Alice: Jack, You used to like coming here... Looking out over the most beautiful view in Neo Kobe, I'll be waiting for you...
Alice hangs up
Chris who has been acting strangely since the phone call suddenly speaks
Chris: Jack, Alice told me something on the phone… She told me… I… I'm a Bioroid!
