She nodded again. Of course she was fed, people couldn't live without food, right? Maybe she should test that for her next experiment.
She reached out with two long, pale fingers and lightly icked up the hem of his shirt, feeling the material between them. She'd never seen clothes like this. They were so dark, and rougher than she was used to.
Reese looked down at Tikvah, who now had the hem of his shirt between two fingers. He couldn't help but chuckle. "You like?" Reese asked playfully. He twirled a small lock of her hair around his index finger. "Soft." he whispered softly.
((She doesn't have any hair. :p ))
Tik ignored him, not knowing it was rude, and looked down at the floor with a small frown. There was something odd that had come in on his shoes. It was dark and wet looking, and she'd never seen it before. She lifted her ehad to ask him what it was, but was interrupted before she could do so by a loud screeching of an alarm.
She jumped back away from him, staring at the door, looking for the sound. A crackly voice came from a speaker in the hall. "Unknown entry detected." It was a strange, robotic voice that Tikvah didn't recognize.
(( Whoops! My bad, sorry :p ))
Reese followed Tikvah's gaze which appeared to be at his shoes. He was about to ask what she was looking at, but suddenly an alarm went off. It was loud, and Reese jumped back he was so startled. He heard a speaker go off, saying something about an unknown entry. "What is that?" Reese shouted. He covered his ears to block out some of the noise. "Turn it off!" he cried out desperately. At his outburst, the alarm turned off, and he began to detect noises in the hallway that the speaker had been going off in.
Backing up against the wall, Tikvah watched the door. She shook her head in response to Reese's question. She didn't know what the alarm was; she'd never heard it before. Her eyes suddenly flicked up to meet Reese's. Maybe it had something to do with him. No strangers had ever come here before, so it made sense that it would mean him. Unknown entry.
The door opened, and Doctor Kavinsky came in. The old man's face looked worn with stress, but he was obviously relieved to see Tikvah was still there. A radio at his hip crackled. "Have you checked Subject Six?" He still hadn't seen Reese yet, as the open door was blocking his view.
Reese watched as a man appeared in the doorway. He hadn't seen Reese yet, for the door was blocking his view. Though it wasn't as if Reese had any place to hide. The room was very clean and open. Reese sighed, and listened as the man's radio went off. Something about subject six? Where was he anyways, something just didn't seem right about this place. Reese didn't want to stick around any longer to figure out what that was. He made a dash for the door, and pulled with all his strength. The door didn't budge in the slightest. Reese was trapped.
((Kavinsky came into the room. The door is open.))
(( I meant the door that Reese had entered through from the sewer :p ))
((Ooooh. That wasn't actually in Tik's room, it was somewhere else in the underground building. The scientists are too careful to keep her in a room with an extra exit. :p))
(( Ooooohhh gotcha, sorry just a bit confused about the setting, but I'm up to speed now! :D ))
Kavinsky pulled the radio from its holster on his hip and answered. "She's here. Everything seems to be fine." He answered.
Tik glanced at Reese questioningly. Was he dangerous? What was going on?
Reese turned around as the doctor spoke into his radio. He began pacing nervously back and forth. What is he gonna do with me? Great going Reese, managed to get yourself into even more trouble than you were in before.
Reese shook his head to clear his thoughts. He glanced nervously towards Tikvah, then back down at the floor. All he could do was wait and see what the doctor had in store for him.
Tikvah looked back at Kavinsky to see that he was looking at her oddly. He must have seen that she was looking at something. His hand went to something else on his hip that he'd always had, but had never used. He pulled the L-shaped black box from its holster and stepped farther into the room, turning to face Reese. "Who are you?" He asked, the box still at his side. There was an odd note to his voice, one Tik had never heard before. She didn't like it.
Reese watched Kavinsky's every move as he stepped closer, and closer, and closer to him, until he was only a few strides away from him. He noticed an L-shaped box in his hand, and watched it carefully. Glancing back and forth from Kavinsky to the L-shaped box he managed to mumble, "I'm Reese." He looked to Tikvah to see what her reaction was to this doctor, but he wasn't able to read her body language or facial reactions very well.
((It's a gun by the way. Tik just doesn't know that.))
"What are you doing here?" Kavinsky demanded. He looked Reese up and down, taking in everything. "You're here for her, aren't you? Here to steal our experiments?"
(( Ohhh gotcha ))
Reese shook his head furiously. "I don't even know what's going on here! This girl can't even speak, I can hardly communicate with her! And what experiments are you referring to exactly?" he declared challengingly at Kavinsky.
Kavinsky glanced quickly at Tik, then back at Reese. There was a sad, but resigned look in his eyes. "You lie." He said. "No one has ever come down here and not tried to take them. The first time they managed to destroy one. We won't let you do the same."
Reese took a few steps backward away from Kavinsky. "Listen, man. I'm on the run from the cops, I jumped down the sewer, and ran until I found this dead in. I went into the room, and saw her." he said, motioning to Tikvah. "I don't know what you're doing, but by all means, go ahead. I'll leave now if that's what you want." Reese suggested daringly.
"No," Kavinsky shook his head with regret, but determination. "We can't allow you to leave. Not now that you know where we are."
He reached for the radio again, and pressed the button on the side. "Security, I have the intruder in Subject Six's room."
Reese groaned. "If you think I'm going to cooperate and be one of your little experiments, you're highly mistaken doctor." he muttered angrily. He looked to Tikvah to see if she would be any help, but he guessed she wouldn't dare go against Kavinsky or any of the other officials here. He wondered if she had been here her entire life, and what experiments they would be performing on her.
