    Beady Eyed Cretins Unite

    Jim turns toward the main hallway, his tail whipping back and forth in agitation. The floor sparks as his fifth appendage lashes at the concrete under him. Where in the world did that damn drone go? Why is he even worried? Wait, yeah! Why is he worried about that little ass? Oh. He's mostly furious because he just up and left in the middle of some serious salvaging work. The four extra drones he constructed whiz about the place, taking the compacted ore and plastics to their  resource's area inside manufacturing room. All the arms and automated fabrication machines have been scrapped and scanned, using whatever knowledge between Jim and Cole to make the parts they need. But, it's slow going. They need more manpower, and the simple drones they have floating around (half the size of Cole, with only one set of servos for transportation and small construction) won't cut it anymore.

    Walking into Area 1, he catches the little drone as he closes the door, being oh so careful not to make noise.

    "Spill it, fucko."

    Cole turns around, his "shoulders" shrugging as he floats on.

    Jim blinks unmoving as the drone floats past his face and on toward a bench of parts where he beeps a happy tune as he picks up some trash.

    "You know, I didn't give your voice back so you could give me the fuckin' silent treatment."

    Anjeet held up the map that Cole had so generously given her, reading it intently as she traversed the desert. On her way to the dome, the alien could not stop herself from pausing a moment to play in the sand. She knew that time was of the essence, but the Jawa simply could not help herself. This desert felt like home. Well, not entirely, but it was definitely close.

    As her claw-like nails etched drawings into the sand below her, Anjeet remembered why she was out in this desert in the first place. Reluctantly, the alien erased the drawings with her foot and continued on. Eventually, she could see the Tech-Dome in the distance. Hopefully it wouldn't turn out to be a mirage! Wouldn't that just be the most terrible thing?

    Thankfully it wasn't a mirage. Anjeet reached out and was able to touch it just fine. Now to find Jim. The tiny alien idly wondered if Jim could even speak her language. Cole definitely seemed to be able to, though. As such, she really hoped that the droid would also be here. From behind a closed door, the Jawa could hear a muffled voice. Though muffled, she was still able to recognize it as Jim's. Oh yes, she was definitely in the right place.

    Knock knock!

    What did he have to do to just have some normal AIs pop out of his creations? Huh? HUH? Jim sighs, a bit half-hearted, and he turns toward the desk in the corner of the larger room. His plan computer alight with four screens in a square formation. Well, at least he's being less talkative. That's one headache out of the way. The cyborg looks into the assembly room, piles upon piles of crated salvage needed to be sifted through, labeled, and sorted. Such a menial task. His hands involuntarily drift to his face and he rubs his cheeks.

    Maybe this was a bit too much of a project, eh? Too much to worry about all at once. Though, Jim has always thrived under pressure, but that hasn't made him feel better. Where are all the subordinates? WHER-

    Knock knock!

    Sensors outside picked up the small humanoid creature.

    Outside, Anjeet would see the door light up as a camera turns toward her. A small orbital sphere model floating out of a compartment about twenty feet up. The doors being so very large dwarf the Jawa, the camera drone floats down to eye level and does a full body scan.

    Jim, inside, takes a rushed step toward the door. Cole turns toward the entrance and sideglances Jim as they meet eyes.

    "What did you do, you lil' shit?"

    Cole bolts, as does Jim. From outside there seems to be a loud POP as they collide before the door. Jim pushing the drone away from his face and pressing the open button on the door controls. One of the dual automatic doors slides to the right. It stops just enough to allow entry.

    Jim takes a step forward into the evening light, his chestplate removed for the day, he wears a grey military tank-top and some darker drawstring pajama pants. His cybernetic feet are bare.

    "Who the hell-r-you, bright ey-" Is all he can get out as he crosses his arms, because Cole pops into vision, all arms spread in elation.

    "Anjeet the Jawa! Glad to see you are on time! Come right in! Don't mind the Doctor, he isn't a people person." Cole floats to the Jawa's side, motioning to come in as the door opens wider.

    Jim blinks, a bit slack jawed.

    Anjeet jumped a little as the camera drone appeared before her, but froze when she realized exactly what it must be doing. It appeared to be scanning her. The alien could only guess that moving around too much would mess up whatever data it gathered on her. She scratched behind her head idly once it was finished. Was Jim alright in there? It really felt like her should have come out to meet her by-

    POP!

    Again, the Jawa flinched, the culprit this time being a sudden loud noise coming from behind the door. What was going on in there?! Eventually, both Jim and Cole came into view. The tiny alien immediately noticed that Jim seemed to be in his pajamas. Perhaps she had woken him up? It was a bit of an odd hour to be sleeping, though.

    "Hello!" Anjeet greeted them with a little wave. "Anjeet here about that job Cole speak of."
