Here is Chap 3, I’ve been stuck up with this chap lately...
“Gipsy Danger report to Bay Three for Neural Simulation.” Tendo’s voice blares through the intercom while I’m chatting with Cherno and Crimson.
“I knew it.” I mutter. Since they fix me up, I always scare of the moment that they got me a new co-pilot. Like I said before, I didn’t want to read ANY strangers mind and NO ONE except Raleigh and Yancy are able to connect with me.
“Gipsy, you got a massive dignity. Just let it go,” Crimson said.
“You’re trying to flame or help?” I joke.
“I think both.” Cherno said.
I laugh and walk away, outside I keep my funny-and-happy ¬mask but inside I want to blast something... or crush someone.
When I got to my bay, technicians and almost half of Shatterdome are waiting for me. I start to feel the old embarrass overwhelm when everyone in the chamber is staring and pointing at me – a 250ft. Jaeger (Actually... it’s easy to gather attentions when you’re that... tall.)
Then I step up on the platform and they start to plug a handful of cables into my sockets. My system starts to initialize connection with LOCCENT.
“Okay Gipsy, 100 percent and the pilots are here.” Tendo announces.
Then I look at the sideway, it’s Raleigh and he’s trying to take my attention by waving his arms like a mad monkey.
“I know you hate this moment.” He starts.
“Let see If I can step into your head again after such a long time, huh?” Raleigh smiles.
“Just get into the pod.” I mix some annoyance into my voice.
He shrugs and follows a guy into my head. Then after a few seconds I see the other co-pilot, I couldn’t believe it. I think my eyes deceive me.
“Mako?” I surprisingly inquire.
“Whaaatttt?” The Japanese woman smirks.
“YOU’RE my Co-pilot?”
“You didn’t tell me you’re a candidate.” Said by me – confused Jaeger.
“You never ask.” She tilts her head to a side.
“Fine, fine. Just hurry it up, get in.” I said and Mako also dissapear.
Through the recorder and the camera inside my conn-pod, Raleigh it’s also surprise and seems happy to have her as his Co-pilot.
I lower the Operating Arms and they step on it, then I lock their foot and ready the Neural Simulation Program.
“Brain signal is strong,” Tendo said.
“Okay. We're on the simulator now, Mako. Remember, don't chase the rabbit. Grant them access, brain impulse trigger memories. Just let them flow, don't latch on. Tune them out, stay in the drift, the drift is silence.” Raleigh speaks to his co-pilot “Also apply to you Gipsy.”
“Whatever.” I simply answer.
“Neural interface drift initiating” I announce and execute the code. We start to drift.
Thousands different images start to flow into my CPU, I receive a mixture of feelings, emotions and memories from both of them. Then I got to a point, a wall.
An endless wall which separate our minds, without hesitate I break it with all willpower. This time, no more quarantine, nothing stands between our minds, no secrets, nothing.
I stumble backward a little bit....
