Arianthe sat in her room playing with the two kittens when there was a knock on her door. She frowned and stood up and walked over to the door. Who could be there? The others were on a mission, so that mainly left Cobalt.

She opened the door and blinked in surprise. Espia stood there with Rustred. She laid a hand on her hip and looked Arianthe up and down.

"You're to come with us." Espia said simply, handing over a piece of paper. Arianthe looked down at it. It was signed and everything from the head of the HQ. It was about the suspicions over her being a Maverick. Arianthe's eyes went wide and she shook her head.

"This is wrong...this is completely wrong..."

Espia's smile was about sympathetically sincere as a crocodile. Her eyes went over to the kittens. "You won't be terminated but you will need to go into quarantine. And...these things..." Espia looked at the kittens. "I suppose we could dispose of them."

"No!!" Arianthe shouted.

"Do as m'lady says or there will be trouble," Said Rustred gesturing to his sword.

"She's not going anywhere with you creeps. Since when do intelligence officers get involved in internal enforcement," Said Cobalt as he stepped up behind the two, pushed his way past them, and stood between them and Arianthe.

"This does not concern you field commander," Said Rustred, glaring through the slits in his helmet at Cobalt.

"And you're out of line. Arianthe can recover in her quarters, there's no need to move her to isolation," Cobalt answered.

"It is your own orders that have lead to this," Rustred replied.

"No it's YOUR failure at your job, which was providing us useful intelligence. Are you slacking off, or just incompetent," Cobalt retorted.

"I'm sorry Cobalt...but these are direct orders from the board of directors." Espia retrieved the paper Arianthe held and placed it in Cobalt's hands.

"They fear that even letting her talk or see other reploids might start another rebellion. There are theories out there that there was a conspiracy between her, Storm Eagle and Harvest Vulture-"

"LEAVE THEM OUT OF THIS!" Arianthe shouted.

Espia ignored her. "There are theories that Arianthe had silenced Harvest Vulture to protect herself. Now...as for these things..." Espia reached down, picking up Cygnus who squirmed in her hand.

Cobalt immediately extended the bayonets on either side of his left hand and thrust them at Espia's neck putting a blade either side of it and skewering the wall.

Rustred reacted by reaching for his blade, but in close confines, the gigantic weapon being drawn by the equally gigantic reploid was slow, and Cobalt had his magnum buster drawn in his right arm, and pressed against Rustred's chin before he even had the weapon drawn.

"Let me make this one hundred percent clear. One: Reploids don't harm biological organisms. It's our sworn duty to protect living things. Two: Your orders are dubious, you're not in a position to carry out such orders, and I find your sources and your loyalties doubtful," Said Cobalt with a snarl.

"You dare speak to m'lady with such a tongue? I shall cut it out," Said Rustred.

Cobalt responded by nudging his buster a bit into Rustred's chin. "Three: I don't want to see either of you. Spies aren't meant to be seen. Tell high command to come here in person, and bringthe MPs with a proper medical and security detail if they're so insistent on moving Arianthe. And if you feel like arguing..."

An instant later Cobalt was no longer holding a weapon to either intelligence officer, and was instead calmly leaning on the wall by Arianthe, the kittens being cupped gently in his hands, that less than a second ago had been holding weapons.

"...remember that history is written by the victors."

Cobalt gently placed the kittens on Arianthe's bed.

"Any questions?"

"This will also be reported, Commander Cobalt." Espia hissed. "I hope you know what you did to yourself right now. If you end up being labelled a Maverick for not following orders, then you will not have my sympathies."

She laid her eyes on Arianthe.

"Maverick." She spat, turning and gesturing for Rustred to follow her.

Inside, the kittens mewed at Arianthe who stood right by Cobalt. "It...It feels like I want to cry, but I can't cry. I'm a Reploid. I betcha if a Reploid could cry I would cry. A Maverick wouldn't feel the need to cry."

She sniffed and lunged forward to hug Cobalt. "I...I can't believe this is happening...!"

"We are not done..." Rustred said to Cobalt as he made his exit.

"You guys are looking awfully hard for a Maverick. Sure would be easy for a member of intelligence to slip information to the enemy," Cobalt hinted with a slight tone of accusation, as the two left.

"I've seen Mavericks. I've fought them, and I've seen friends go Maverick. You're no Maverick Arianthe," Said Cobalt to Arianthe.

"Then what is going on with me then, Cobalt? I got into that argument with Edge...And it makes me feel sad that he and I aren't like what we were before I killed Harvest Vulture."

Arianthe dislodged herself and looked at the ground. "I keep screwing up over and over..."

"The inventor of reploids gave us the ability to feel pain, sorrow, and anger in the belief that it makes us whole. It makes us just like those humans we we're supposed to protect. Then I guess that means our lives have the same value. So if you're hurting then that's good. It means you're alive. It means you're still who you are. Hold on to that," Cobalt placed a finger on Arianth's chin and tilted her head up.

"Chin up soldier."

"...Maybe I can't...or don't know anymore about being a Maverick Hunter." Arianthe whispered, turning her head away from Cobalt.

She closed her eyes and turned to sit on the bed. Immediately, Cygnus and Altair mewed and pawed at her, trying to cheer her up.

"These two seem to think the world of you," Cobalt said, pointing out the kittens.

"Listen Arianthe, I just called attention to myself. I may have to leave soon. The mole knows we know now, and will try to pass the blame to someone else. I think that's what this was about. I'll do what I have to in order to protect you and the others, even if that means taking blame on myself.

Arianthe I need you right now. I need you to keep your head together, and keep your own name clear, or the mole will just start this all over again. I know you may not think it, but you've done good work so far. I'm proud of you."

Cobalt sat down next to Arianthe. "I don't think they have the sway to back up their claims, but I'll stay here a while longer in case they try something else."

"Cobalt..."

Arianthe laid her hand atop his and smiled weakly. "You're umm...If we reploids could have fathers and mothers and what not...I'd totally call you, Father."

"Kind of like how Snowdrop referred to Zenkuma as Daddy..." Arianthe looked down for a split second. "Please...try and stay as long as you can, but don't sacrifice yourself. We can't do this without you."

Cobalt always considered his team to be his family. He'd seen it before. Reploids, had the same basic need for family that humans did, and in the absence of blood relations, formed relationships akin to family. Those of similar make would think of themselves as siblings.

"Spiral Pangolin...He and Armored Armadillo considered themselves brothers. Though they couldn't be any more different, they somehow came together to form something like family. As he lay dying, Spiral Pangolin said something. He said I'll see you soon brother."

Cobalt looked down for a moment, then back to Arianthe. "If I'm your father, then you know there are times I'm going to praise you, and times I'm going to yell at you. There'll be times when I'm hard on you, and times when I lighten up, times I leave you to fly on your own, and times I'll stand a close watch over you."

"I umm...wouldn't have it any other way." Arianthe smiled softly and gave Cobalt an extra squeeze. "I'll take my week's suspension and try to figure myself again. That way, I'll be able to help you out." She winked and Cygnus mewed loudly.
