Al shook his head. Continuing to subvocalize, he said: "However we go about this, ain't no one gittin' locked up alone nowhere. Splittin' up always leads us deeper into the shit. Ever' single damned time. Me, I think our best bet against She-HAL is inna meat world, go at her server like we done discussed. All of us can work together on that, with you Robyn providin' matrix support as an' when feasible. Matrix guerrlla for us, if ya will. Much better plan than havin' jist one of us go mano-a-mano with the AI alone on its own turf. Hell, if that was a realistic option, we could jist hole up in here, let ya do yer thing, an' go home five minutes from now."

<<Agreed. No splitting the group down here. And be careful what you plug into your head. Run the tag eraser over every plug first.
And actually: Killing the cooling system is out best bet to shut down the servers without resorting to explosives - which as we know might cause a catastrophic failure in the sphere's structure.

So first thing is finding and plotting a course to the cooling systems.>>

[Tuesday September 15th, 2076; CTec Aquaology, Tonga Trench]

Silk had been expecting it for the last few minutes of their trek through the labyrinthine back of house areas of the aquaology but when the voice of she HAL spoke to them again in the med bay it was nevertheless unnerving

>>You are meddling, crawling around like mice in a maze.  I will ask you one more time what you are doing here.  If I do not like the answer I will be forced to contain you where you are until my task here is done.

Silk shivered slightly and she realised that the internal temperature had indeed begun to dropÖit would seem that perhaps the AI had already decided to take measures

>>Robyn, I, or my agent, can assist you in the matrix if that would help.  If nothing else I could run interference for you

Robyn snickers as she sub-vocalizes.  >>I will be the last person to turn down any help.  I take it we are not going to answer Hal-ette?  Hmmm, you asked about the highest ranking devices down here and in my experience, medical equipment ranks just lower than site defense and life support.  So far the defenses seem to be drones, which does not let me do much, but we do have some really good medical systems right here.<<

Isaint debated answering the creepy KI and decided to risk a little bit of diplomacy. Using one of his lesser commlinks with the agent keeping watch for intrusion attempts he replied before shutting wireless off again:
<<We have kept away from the areas you called off-limits. We are here to retrieve Information from a local resident. I repeat: We have not come here with the  intention to meddle in your plans - whoever you are.>>
'Of course, just because we didn't come here with the intention doesn't mean we didn't change our opinion with your shitty behavior...'

To the others he sent on the microtransceiver: <<We have to keep moving. It's getting pretty chilly around here. Rick please have one of your spirits carry Robyn while she is in VR.>>

She HAL didnít sound wildly impressed with Isaintís response but nonetheless her reply was measured and calm.

>>Very well.  If you tell me the name of the resident that you wish to speak to I will have them brought to you.  For now you are restricted to your current location but you have my word that I will not attempt any harm to you if you remain where you are.  As a gesture of good will I have corrected the environmental conditions in the module you are in.

And the temperature did begin to rise once more

Isaint turned to their employer: <<Well Silk, it's your decision, but we probably won't get a better offer at this junction. We can still go to war after you got your info - unless you think it's to much of a risk to trust whoever this is arranging a meeting.>>

Al didn't say anything.

It couldn't hurt to achieve Silky's objective before unleashing hell on the She-HAL. And talking to the guy could provide one heap big load of intel on what was going on down here.

But Al knew what'd he'd be doing once they had what they wanted. The knowledge that there were children down here....
