    BGM: Game Over

    A house? Sho walked towards the house, not really feeling any sort of power except for a small amount. Tinier than even humans. An... animal? Whatever it was, it'd better hope it was asleep or something, because Sho was knocking~! Replace knocking with arting, though. Sho had decided, after a while of consideration, that it was time to build a garbage pile. He saw the house as the perfect spot! He just had to take things he could find away from where they were and just pile them together. It'd work eventually, no matter how many times it took.

    Sho looked at the house, paying it much heed. Should he build the pile or draw the sigil first? Questions were very indecisive things! At least, hard to answer things. Sho stood still for a second, his hands behind his back. His feet tapped against the pavement that was the road as he wandered without care, reaching the edge of said road Sho ignored almost everything as he kept going, walking around the house. "Some Old Horses Can Always Hear Their Owner Approach. Perfect." He stopped, viewing the house's side all down. This really would be perfect for a sigil.


    "Heheheheh."

    Old Horses indeed.

    While two of the house's owners had left for the week, one was left to stay. After all, someone had to keep this pristine piece of property protected from thieves, vandals and the like. Speaking of vandals... While the oddly dressed human walked about, admiring the house and nothing else, behind it not too far away was a large, sturdy barn. Both of its broad, wooden doors were closed tight, yet inexplicably unlocked. Within it was completely dark, save for a few shafts of moonlight that managed to find a way in through the spaces in the roofing which touched upon a glossy, well kept finish. Black and silver, the outline of a vehicle was evident, seemingly dormant in its silence.

    Intruder wrote:"Some Old Horses Can Always Hear Their Owner Approach. Perfect."

    Shwoowh whoowh...

    A piercing glow of amber split the dark, the vehicle's scanner coming to life before pacing from side to side as the resident AI roused from his recharge. The man's initial steps hardly caused a blip on KARR's Surveillance Mode, but his further investigation? My, this certainly sounded like a familiar encounter that happened but a month ago. It took but a nanosecond for the vehicle's scanning systems to gain a visual, some gangly looking human that thought it clever to roam about when all should be sleeping. The fool. However, it was evident from vital scans and a quick pass of his Spectrographic Analyzer that this being was not all that they seemed. The car's intricate dashboard glowing to life and the AI priming its weaponry, the relatively serene silence of the farm was broken by a furious scream of jet turbines.

    Like a gale they howled as dirt was spat from under KARR's tires as he charged the barn door, flimsy wood nearly blown from its hinges with a flash of blazing yellow and a thunderous CRAKBOOM! Splinters flying from the vehicle's violent exit to the outside, it furiously skidded to a halt with its nose and swiftly pacing scanner set on the intruding person. Or at least what appeared to be one.

    Before Sho he would see none other than a black and silver Trans-Am, its glossy finish gleaming in the moonlight, although it hardly sounded like one as instead of a throaty rumble of a V8 engine, there was instead a high pitched whine that drove itself into a scream every time it revved. However, to worry about being crushed into roadkill would be the least of his worries on this early morning. Within the darkened cockpit, a few quick electronic tones chirped in the dark, the AI's targeting systems locking onto the wiry form that so arrogantly beheld the farm house. There would be no warning shots, no scolding or angry demands to leave the premises like a more reserved model would. Instead, there was only a flash of bright green and the cry of laser fire as KARR fired off three rounds into the intruder's chest.

    High-Powered Laser:

    --Hidden under KARR's nose paneling, when fired it emits a bright green light. The Laser was originally intended to be used against the AI, until he had stolen it from FLAG. Engineered with “double the penetration", it has been shown to be able to burn through reinforced concrete and even MBS coating.

    Trespassers, eh? Such is life. Sho went about considering his maths-y future with this building, contemplating the options given to him. Build a garbage pile, or draw a Taboo Noise sigil? His answer would be none. Hearing a revving behind him, Sho ceased his observation of the house to look around, totally unexpecting as a car burst through the barn. "...?! What the factor?!" He "swore", his attention turned to his black and silver acquaintance. But wait, that car...

    That car had no driver. No dead person, no living person... well, shit. What was driving the thing? It couldn't be driving itself... nothing had driven itself like that in Shibuya, right? Nor had he seen any cars driving themselves on Portal Breach. They'd been manned by people and aliens and other races! He could tell because he'd stood right in the middle of the road. Sho was insane, and on top of that he didn't tend to really care about things like... say, road rules. He wasn't bothered.

    As he hadn't been bothered regarding the certain building he'd unknowingly stumbled across.

    It was just as well that the car arrived, too; if it had not, the Judges may have been having a batch of annoyance when they returned. It was all good to return, but with the sigil Sho would have put down, you'd have been eating Taboo Noise for daaaaaays. Unfortunately, you didn't get that. Not yet, anyway~!

    Hearing nothing from this vehicle but tyre screeches, Sho bore his fangs. "You zetta obstacle! You weren't part of my calculations!" He didn't really get the time to say much more before three streaks of green light smashed into him. "An inverse matrix?! I spent too much time in the RG...!" He yelled as they struck him, himself kneeling down as his body ebbed away. "Where's your beauty...? Hahahahaha." Were his final words as he attempted to hide his shock at a car suddenly gunning him down.

    Welp, looks like exploration had come to an end.

    It had been too long since the AI had gotten the full pleasure of taking someone completely by surprise. The startled expressions, colorful language, or at least what served to act in its place. Factor? Zetta Obstacle? Of course, the AI figured exactly what those terms meant, not the least bit placated at being called insignificant by this ridiculous person. However, he found it odd that they were using such terms as insults like one would belt out an expletive upon stumbling across something undesirable.

    Given that the AI was apparently not a part of his calculations, that may as well have been the case. Fangs bared, the man fell to his knees, but not before yelling something about an inverse matrix. Likely that had to do with his current state of being alive having been inverted to death, but an RG? Could he possibly be meaning the Pool of Souls in his odd form of mathematical slang? While the puzzling method of this intruder's speech was a welcome change for his processors to analyze, his final words were mere nonsense.

    Demanding to know where the vehicle's beauty lied before laughing his final breaths of coded existence, the AI pondered it for a split second, as it only took so long for his processors to arrive with a fitting response; "Binary, you rapidly decreasing yoctogram." He answered with disdain, the AI's deep, graveled voice projecting out to the odd man as he dispersed into code. As if being beaten down by an unmanned vehicle was not surprising enough, now it proved to be capable of speech.

    Regardless, the stranger had been effectively vaporized with nary a scratch left on the property. Satisfied with his work, KARR turned about and backed into the barn. With a few more electronic chimes, he activated his EPR function and closed the barn doors. The execution of this function looked almost as if the car were possessed and a supernatural force were pulling the large wooden doors closed, albeit crookedly given the abuse the hinges were given upon KARR's explosive greeting. From within, the AI gave a final sweeping scan of the area before returning to recharge.
