“O-okay...” stuttering, Xenneth step forth as he spoke. Reminding himself, “I-I can do this!”
The violet haired boy plugged in his P.E.T. to the building accessing and opening the communication. He plugged in just in time to hear Megami’s reassuring voice, confirming that she would be coming. The influx of data was abnormally large, but Xenneth recognized this before, and he done so with a small bit of concern as he saw all the numbers, values, and the image data for Megami being very different than from what he was use to.
“This is Unity-san’s OS System settings, right?” He was quiet.
The violet haired boy awaited for the other Net Operators to plug-in, hoping he would not be too long downloading the other NetNavis as he went along. His eyes gazed towards his surroundings and the young woman with him as he shown a lot of concern for safety...everyone’s safety. For once, he had to pay everyone back and make sure he was not just some bag of flesh that needed to be carried around and be dead weight.

As they enter the building the group finds themselves surrounded by masked men and guns. They bear no insignia or common dress, in fact, it looks as if each were a normal civilian who had decided to put on a ski mask that day.
Luckily for the crew, they are unnoticed due to a bend in the architecture, leaving them at the end of one hall, and the masked men perpendicular, 10 metres away. Xenneth might find them a smidge familiar, from the Millions Street hostage crisis only a month ago.
So long as they aren't loud, they should be fine... for now.
Peeking around the corner led to an important (though unfortunate) discovery. Men with guns and ski masks.
Feint assessed the situation before proceeding.
1 - There were no other entrances to the building. Well, no conventional ones at least.
2 - There were no other hallways to traverse, go figure.
3 - She was actually unsure how many men were around the corner; there could very likely be more of them hiding outside of her line of sight.
"Well hopefully they're as dumb as they look. Check around for another passageway. Otherwise let's just sit still for a moment and see what they're up to."
First glance is deceptive, it's highly likely there's something nearby she missed. Luckily she had a few other pairs of eyes to help her out, so if they noticed something important, hopefully they'd disobey her order earlier when she told them to keep their mouths shut.
Additionally, it's pretty easy for a "watch stander" to lose focus after staring down the same hallway for an indefinite amount of time, especially when there was no visible sign of danger. They were humans not security cameras; boredom would take it's effect eventually, if not one of them eventually just needing to take a piss.
Cherish had stood guard before, much like these men seemed to be doing right now. What they did in the next few minutes would give her important information about the security of this structure. If they just continued to stand there, then it was highly likely that this enemy force had enough guards to plant them like statues at every point of vulnerability. But she was willing to bet they'd have to move onto another post at some point, and if they did, that'd mean there was always at least one portion of the building not being watched. It'd also mean they had a set schedule of when they'd rotate posts, and more importantly than that, it likely meant they had no surveillance cameras in the sections that the guards stood (why else would the guards be standing there?).
Perhaps it was wishful thinking, but there was no safe course of action with the little bit of information she had right now. Maybe those men were just holograms or maybe they were just manikins that she mistook as guards? Whatever they were and whatever they were up to, she'd have a little bit more knowledge just by watching and waiting.
If they were within her hearing range (that she could listen to them talking), then even better.
As Sara checked the hall, she found it odd that there were no doors on either side of it.
Don't most office buildings have doors down the halls?
As she thought this to herself, she realized that now would likely be the perfect time to attack Cherish, but she also remembered her promise to Shakeem that she would hold off on doing so until their mission was complete. Rather than moving down the hallway, Sara made her way back to a nearby terminal, and tried her best to hack her way into the security system.

Things never went as planned…
The moment Xenneth seen just an inch beyond the corner, there was a mad rush of memories! Armed guys with guns and a bunch of dangerous nonsense like that! It all meant his luck was going south again to the bowels of…well…you know. Either way, Xenneth was at his wit’s end as he stood looking to his P.E.T. only to have the NetNavi icon upon the screen glow once more. His brow risen slightly in surprise knowing just what that meant.
He smiled. Something good happened…for once.
Still, Xenneth was plagued with the possibility that he may not come out of this alive. Even if Megami was okay, he was not sure if that would matter if she could not help him from his P.E.T. Then again, he relied so much on her that suddenly, some wealth of helplessness and guilt caused him to walk to the edge of the hallway, staying close to Cherish, and swallowed deeply as he kept his lips sealed trying to see what would happen next…or perhaps know if he could do anything for anyone.
"T-those guys were at Million's Street..." he said lowly to Cherish in brief whispers, "...w-why are they here...now?"
Things never went as planned, especially if it meant he was useless in the process giving simple little bits of information.
Now Listening To:: ----- Chatty Ditz (OOC):: -----
Judging from the others' reactions and movements, it didn't take much for Shakeem to realize they had their first obstacle in sight...or within range. But now the question was,how could they proceed...?
It seemed whomever was up ahead had Xenneth greatly bothered too...not exactly the good sign he hoped for.
Glancing to the adjacent walls, Shakeem looked for anything noteworthy. He hoped he'd find something...or else he'd have to stay put as well,playing the waiting-game....
(OOC: For sake of keeping everyone in the loop I guess since no one has used Jameson's PET connection, any Navi that hasn't can just come in through there. Moving on though for sake of Real World RP)
Just what had he gotten into? When it came to the fate of the world, he figured he could understand, but it nonetheless pricked the back of his mind as a constant bother.
Everyone seemed to be just as on edge, but for now it was best to follow Cherish's lead. Jameson looks around for anything noteworthy in their immediate vicinity. Hopefully they could find something useful.
"T-those guys were at Million's Street...w-why are they here...now?"
Nothing had happened for a few moments. But Xenneth appeared to hold the first useful bit of information, surprisingly. Intel on the enemy was always a valuable tool.
"Well, why were they at Million's Street?"
She didn't answer the question with another question, but rather, the answer of her question would likely also be the answer of his.
Million's Street must have been their first target. So this was their second?
What did they find in Million's Street that they could also find here? Or rather, what did they not find in Million's Street that they could instead find here?
One question led to another, but it narrowed down who the enemy was and what they were capable of. Feint turned her head back away from Xenneth and kept her position for just a little while longer. If nothing continued to happen, it was time to make a move.
