Heather -

[ You don't [i]pass out[/b], but there's no such thing as actual meaningful movement or thought at this point. To be plain, you are paralyzed, and your vision is... well it isn't fading, but it's like the color is getting drained from your sight - The brilliant blue of the July sky is draining to a dull gray. You feel a dull thud throughout your body, and ears start to ring. Stitch finally speaks -

Dearest one, you will not die. You have let me live, and are my mother. A moment longer.

Let's get one more HT check, with Will
]

John frowns -

Okay. I'm not evading now. I just need to know where you stand, so that I don't waste any more time. What do you know of NOVA?

"Hold on one second." I look in the rearview mirror.

"David, my name is Veronica. I know it's silly, but you deserve to hear that first. That was the only lie I told and you knew I was being facetious but this is bugging me.

Now, I know what I was shown on some tapes and some documents of the project. I was acquainted with such information very very recently. You'll have to ask the others what they know themselves."

David glances at the mirror and back at the road.

John nods -

I'm not concerned about anyone else right now, but that's nice of you to protect them.

Those tapes... Well - oh! Is there one with some loudmouthed general barking at us?

Still oblivious, I throw a searching look at David while I nod at John. "Yep, that's the one. I quoted him directly when you first asked what I knew of Nova II. Then you bungle some Latin, and you all go commando on him."

Ah... "War ends all." Yeah, that's mine, though I can say it correctly. That one was killed first, in fact. The good general, that whole thing - it was a nice little stageplay. The other stuff - I'm assuming you got to see a tour of the NOVA project and some of the participants? Yeah, all that stuff is legit. Dr. Lenz was great.

Heather passes out.

"Yes, that's the one. So, that's my foundation. Some tapes of Dr. Lenz.....?" I wait expectantly.

((Did I not have both Veruca and Ala watching that muleheaded sister of mine? I am going nutty waiting to REALIZE she's having issues, and now she's passed out. Do I at this point she isn't conscious to be giving any buzzzzzz Heather's here in the back of my head?))

David glances over -

Uh, Veruca, crap, what just happened - check her airway!

John starts to answer -

Dr. Lenz was a good man, he was doing good work. He just talked to the wrong peo - oh, crap! Um - is she okay?

Veruca bobs her head obediently and actually follows some first aid training.

---

It's not something that has really registered, but you actually haven't heard from Ala in a bit. It's nothing punitive or anything like that, but you've been focused on John. You told her to let you know things, and she's... occupied.

Veruca is very well meaning, and would, indeed, call out as soon as Heather keeled. I did forego mentioning that - she was right there. From outward appearances, though, Heather was looking actually a little bit better than she did at the gas station. There was nothing, as far as psi is concerned that would have tipped you to her condition. Heather has had you locked out with that specifically.

"WHAT THE FUCK!!! Ala, why didn't you tell me something was going on?!"

I come forward, watching Veruca first aiding her. I connect with Heather's mind as fast as I can. "HEATHER WAKE UP!!!!!!!!! Stitch, help me!!! What's going on?!"

Ala does not respond - as a note, she should be in the satchel still being held by Veruca. You get no response from her.

So - Veronica knocks the stonewall down that Stitch put up like the big bad wolf against the stupid strawbuilder pig. It's not a problem.

Well - Heather's mind is like a Phish concert - hot, noisy, and it has the munchies. The "backblast as you brute force your way into Heather's psyche hits you like a hammer (which, at this stage in the game won't faze you).

You see images flashing - All over the place, all having to do with Stitch - almost a "flash" of Stitch's life. It's frenetic and maddening. You feel Stitch's presence.

It is finished. I can leave now. Heather had an injury. What happened to her head?

I am leaving now. She is not harmed, only tired. I did nothing to her head. I have healed her injury to her head.

That's all well and good, but I'm waiting for her to actually leave, because if she doesn't, like I said, I'm going in. In the hopes that talking out loud will facilitate it, I've not ever talked to Stitch but once I don't think this way. But out loud I have....

"What is finished, Stitch? Come out please."

Heather takes a gasp and is awake - completely awake. She's covered in sweat and cold to the touch, but looks... fine.

Veronica, you recognize Stitch "embracing" Heather on the surface of her skin - her cheeks, shoulders, and hands have that telltale "circuitry" look to them. Stitch has left.

Please do not harm me, Veronica. Heather is well.

Heather - You feel dizzy and still hungry, but your head doesn't hurt anymore. Stitch is on the surface of your skin.

I have grown. I did not anticipate your condition. I will be more careful next time.

Slightly wide -eyed I look at Ronnie, "Yes, I'm fine why do you ask?"

"No problem Stitch. Everything is fine." "Can we stop and get those doughnuts now?"

"Because I need to know so I can kick your ass!!! Have this damn candy bar. I can't believe I stashed this and you're already eating it."

I hand her the Snicker's bar. NOW, I take the backpack from Veruca and look for Ala.

You take the backpack from a confused Veruca and look inside. Ala is in the fetal position, and is holding her head - She is not paralyzed, but rather in intense concentration. She's shaking a bit, as well.

"What did you do to my head?"

"Actually a dozen hot glazed would hit the spot." Allowing Ronnie to keep her candy bar.

"I stashed it for YOU. EAT."

Now I connect with HER brain to try and help HER out. While I'm at it, is Ginger still out?

Ala! Are YOU okay?

Ginger is still unconscious.

Not now. I'm busy. I'm... okay.

DAMMIT, I'll kick your ass too, Ala!!! Just take a number.

Sitting back down shaking, but relieved that Ala didn't somehow stay behind at the gas station and MOST importantly that Heather's okay....ish... I ignore Heather. I look at John.

"Where were we? Dr. Lenz?"

John looks completely nonplussed.

Um, are you serious? Who in the world are you?
