Max groaned as he continued attempting to work on task in front of him. "This has to be about the biggest pain in the butt I've had to deal with in a while. Normally, these manufacturing arm motors take far less time to fix... Been at this one most of the day..."

He stretched momentarily, taking his eyes off of the motor to look around his shop. At least with the shop's, and by extension his apartment upstairs, windows facing the north, he usually didn't have to worry about getting blinded in the afternoon on sunny days. "A little unusual on the weather... It's not normally this hot in April."

Max shook his head, then went back to work, finding the major problem after just a while longer. As he worked, he considered the way his personal schedule had been working out recently. "There it is! Annoying little thing... Morning exercises, my repair shop during the day, then the other work later, and sleep... Speaking of that other work..." With the problem found, he fixed it quickly before starting to reassemble everything.

He checked the time. While trying to get the motor fixed, it had gotten on towards late afternoon, and the time he usually closed up. With a sigh, he set the fixed motor over onto the "Completed - Ready for Return" table. After that, he locked the shop door and set his Closed message. "Okay, time to decide... Food first, or get ready for my other job?"

After a moment's thought, Max stopped to grab a heavier-looking bag, and headed for the pub... "Food first. And it's not like anyone at the Broken Shillelagh is going to question my bag too heavily... The staff already knows about it, anyway."

Before Mary could reply to Max, a girl that looked very similar to Lexie came running out of a door just past the curve of the bar.

"Mrs. Stuart! MRS. STUART!" She skidded to a stop, breathing heavily. "Umm, we kinda...well, something sorta...happened..."

Max stopped, looked at the girl running up, shifted his gaze over towards the door, looked back at the Academy's principal, and finally combined a sigh with a facepalm. "I'm going to need to go get changed, aren't I?"

Nikki looked embarrassed. "Probably."

Mary growled. "All right, start explaining. Now."

"Um, well, there was a bit of an...accident...in the lab; some experimental nanites might have kinda got loose sorta around...um...the, uh, LSG armor prototype..."

Max sighed, face-palmed again, and ran back to the table he'd been at and grabbed his bag. When he passed the pair as he headed for the tunnel to towards the theater, he muttered, "Hopefully, the new adhesive formula on the netting is strong enough..."

Once he got into the tunnels, he ducked into the nearest empty room, and pulled the stored pieces of his armor suit out of the bag and began suiting up. Once suited, he 'called out', "ARTEMIS, register Night Hunter active, responding to report of incident in workshop."

The only response was a kind of sizzling crackle. Out in the hall, sounds of frantic banging and clattering came from a room near the tunnel entrance.

"Lovely... Alright, time to see just how bad it really is..."

Max snuck in close to the door to the noisy room, and peeked in as best he could without giving away his location. "This would be so much easier if I hadn't gotten injured in that one fight... Really could have used some of my abilities..."

Max realized when he looked in the room that the door the noise was coming from behind was the door to Kelly Ryan's workshop...

"Oh, boy... This is probably going to hurt a little..."

Max made sure to take a breath, then reached for the door... Then turned the handle to open it. "This is going to suck without my full abilities, probably..."

Kelly was rummaging through junk on her worktable with her good arm. She muttered a stream of unintelligible words under her breath as sparks shot from her other arm.

Max sighed as he stepped into the room, hitting the control to open and collapse his helmet as he did so. "Okay, two things. First, where's the rogue science experiment? Second, when you're done, let Principal Stuart know that there's interference on the ARTEMIS channels. I'm guessing the two are related."

Kelly's artificial shoulder made an odd grinding noise as she jumped.

"I didn't do anything! I don't know what you're talking about! I absolutely did not allow any experimental nanites to infest that armor project!"

She yanked off darkened goggles and seemed to be trying to hide or close something on the forearm of her artificial arm.

Max sighed as he face-palmed. "Right... Where is the armor?"

After a second of facepalm, Max dropped his hand back down to his side so he could give the girl his blank-face stare.
