The armored one waved his hand before him lightly, signaling him passing something off... or something like that. His eyes still closed and his head back, in a much more relaxed state than he rarely ever was.
"I don't know what you call us. Just a group that likes to hang out with each other I guess. Air would call us business partners I think.
But hey, care for a bout? Probably a lot more interesting than just sitting here in a run down shop."
A slight tinge of bloodlust filled the air as he said that. Even the shopkeeper took a step back having finishing cleaning up the display. Even slight, it was very noticeable.[/color]
The cloaked figure couldn't help but sense the sudden bloodlust in the air. It excited him, somewhere deep within his soul. His calmness would make most uneasy, but this fellow seemed unaffected. Surprising, to say the least. He pondered quietly for a moment, before he responded.
"Business partners, eh? Well, I happen to be in that market for a few..."
Yet another scream from outside. Yet another emotion felt. Seemed to be plenty of negativity here.
"If I may be so bold as to ask about meeting some of your partners, I suppose I could offer you a chance to have a little fun with a "bout. I am about due for some training anyway."
He waited, and pondered, feeling the bloodlust in the air. This lone navi sure could spice up a room quite quickly with some heat. He spoke just loud enough for the shopkeeper to hear, too.
"I have no intentions of destroying this shop, regardless of the answer given to me. It is quite a useful spot with such a good view."

Somewhere else in the Hacker's Network, between the less-traveled alleys, albeit a common feature of the network, vandalism struck the walls. The culprit's medium: black crystals with roots interlacing within the walls and dark power illuminating them. The culprit itself was leaving crumbs of its crystals... Traced, they lead to a Navi as dark as the atmosphere of the place, with the same dark power glowing on its skin.
The HeelNavi-looking creature walked, taking its time with every step. No one could say for sure where it's headed.
After a time, the black cloaked navi stood. He sniffed the air, but the pair on the shop good day,with a gentle bow, and walked out. As chaotic as the streets were around the navi, his hearing was not. As he passed an alleyway, he overheard something of intrest.
[????]: I dom't know! It was only on the radar for a second. But I'm sure of it. That navi data was there for a split second. It has only happened since the large fire in the Forest net that it has shown up, as infrequently as it has.
The navi suddenly changed course, walking down to the alleyway directly towards the navi that had just spoke, as well as the beefy, bruiser navis that flanked a business decorated navi.
"Where was that navis data?"
The group of navis suddenly turned and looked at the cloaked navi. The business navi just nodded, and the two bruisers walked forward, brandishing weapons.
the cloak figure stepped forward, and in the blink of an eye, erased the two brusiers. He stepped forward again. The surviving pair of navi's demeanor suddenly changed. The businesslike heelnavi in fear and awe, the search and record data navi, in fear.
"Fear... A powerful negative emotion"
He stepped right up to the search navi.
"Where was that navi data? Tell me the truth, and I let you live. Lie, and I will hunt you and erase you... But unlike those two, I will take my time and make it hurt..."
The search navi whispered it out, raising his arms to his head as if to protect himself.
[???]: "Navi labs.... Electopia... But that was a few days ago... I swear... Take the badge to get in! Please don't kill me!"
The cloaked navi smiled, showing the search navi his two eyes: one red, the other green and purple. He took the badge from the search navi's outstreatched hand.
[????}"You need that.... To get in... and get to that data... They have a check that will.... throw you out of the nextwork automatically without it...."
BN navi: "Hey! What about me?"
The cloak figure nodded to the search navi, turned and started walking away. As he passed a trash can, he reached down into it. The business navi sighed, in relief. The cloak figured pulled out a knife, an whipped it behind him, straight into the business navi's throat. His body started vanishing instantly. He raised his hand to the Search navi, and vanished without a trace.
