Mugen took his second hand from behind his back and it glowed with green energy. With a swipe he countered the incoming wave of energy. It was the same technique Zenkuma used to counter his own annihilator hadouken before. He then landed a short distance away from Snowdrop and cupped his hands together. "ANNIHILATOR HADOUKEN!" He shouted and launched a solid beam of energy to Snowdro's side and then twisted it sweeping it across her.

He waved it away!!??

Snowdrop barely stood up. She staggered a bit and then looked over at Mugen. She looked just in time to see the hadouken shooting out towards her. Snowdrop barely had time to scream as the blast hit her, sending her skidding across the ground and collapsing in a heap.

"Beeep....Beeep...." Her internal program was sending out a distress signal.

------

"Dirge!! C'Mon!!" X was racing down the hallway toward the garage where the bikes were. He had gone with the reploid back inside and was nearby when the distress call was addressed to them both.

Mugen slowly walked toward Snowdrop and reached down, wrapping his hand around her head and lifted her up.

...............................................

Dirge mounted a land chaser and sped off toward Snowdrop's distress signal. He was joined by Moon, who also received the signal, and fired his boosters cracking the sound barrier as he rushed toward Mugen's location.

-----------------------------------------------

"I congratulate you. You made me use both hands. I'll give you a warrior's end. Shungo....."
Mugen paused.

"You will live on to see the world I create," he said before dropping Snowdrop back to the ground and turning away.

It was a short time later that the others arrived. Moon was first, sighting Mugen briefly, but then took notice of Snowdrop.

"I've arrived on scene. Snowdrop is here. Mugen is also here, but rapidly retreating. Instructions?"

"Protect Snowdrop" Dirge called out.

Shortly after Dirge arrived, sliding his land chaser to a stop, and jumping off, running toward Snowdrop.

"SNOWDROP," he cried, as he reached down to her and lifted her into his arms. "Snowdrop, speak to me!"

"Commander X, she's hurt. We have to get her back to base," Dirge said.

Moon raised his ears and spoke up. "I detect Mugen's presence. I can pinpoint his location if you wish to pursue."

Dirge's hands shook at the mention of the name, and clenched his teeth, but then to the battered Snowdrop in his arms.

"No, I'll bring Snowdrop back to base. We're not Mavericks. We take care of our own," Dirge said, returning to his land chaser.

Walking away from a shot at Mugen, when he was this angry, ate at Dirge, but he knew there was something more precious than vengeance right now. He made a promise to protect her, and he'd failed in that promise today. He wouldn't let her down again.

"Mugen..." X looked over in the direction he had left in. "This is X, contacting headquarters. Requesting permission to pursue."

Dirge could see the frustration ignite in X's face. "Wh-What do you mean? No...Dr. Cain, I'm sorry but I don't....Copy that..."

"We're not pursuing." X said simply. He walked over to observe Snowdrop's damages. "You're going to be repaired." He said gently. "I don't know what you had hoped to gain from this, but at the very least...we'll learn how he attacks by looking at the wounds at least. You did us a great favor."

Snowdrop barely smiled. "Beeep." Was all that was heard.

"Moon, we're heading back." X ordered as he got back on the land chaser.

"Affirmative," Said Moon turning back with the others.

A short time later they were back in the base, where Dirge rushed toward the infirmary with Snowdrop still in his arms.

Waiting for Dirge at the infirmary was no other than Dr. Cain himself. X was a little surprised as Cain took Snowdrop from Dirge and brought her in to be repaired. He was looking over her very carefully, making notes to the medic reploids with him.

X spoke up. "Dr. Cain? What's the prognosis?"

Cain wiped his forehead. "Everything is damaged. It would be a very delicate procedure as one wrong move can destroy her CPU, her memory banks and other vital systems. At this point...It might be better just to shut her down to spare the pain."

"NO," Dirge shouted at Dr. Cain.

"You wouldn't do that to another human, so why would you do it to a reploid?"

Dirge threw down his helmet.

"If you could build SIGMA, you can fix one little reploid!"

Dr. Cain glared at Dirge. "If Snowdrop was a human being with these kind of injuries she'd be dead. At this point, I'd only be doing her a favor! Do you want her memories erased? To have her CPU irrevocably changed? Do you want that risk?"

X turned to Moon. "You and Dirge, wait out in the hallway. I won't let them hurt Snowdrop okay?"

When hopefully they had left, X turned back to Dr. Cain. "...Dr. Cain." He said slowly. "You owe me."

The pair held each other's gaze. Finally, Cain bowed his head. "I'll do my best."

X walked out into the hallway and looked over at Dirge and Moon. "He's going to try and repair her. Just to be sure though, I'll be in there in case anything goes wrong. Dirge, are you okay with that? I'm making a promise to you, Snowdrop will live."

Dirge looked back at X. He'd have kept arguing, but he trusted X. He nodded and walked out.

"He can build death machines, but he says he can't save one life," Dirge mumbled to himself.

He sat quietly outside, thinking over the previous fights he'd been through, and the battles with Mugen.

"Are we really just weapons after all?"

"We're not weapons."

X looked down at the floor and then rested a hand on Dirge's shoulder. "Think this over while I'm in there. If not for fighting, what would you do with your life? I think...You know I like land chasers. Maybe I'd be a racer?" He patted his shoulder before going in.

Dirge sat against the wall outside, and held his helmet out in front of himself, staring at it, as if looking into a mirror. It wasn't part of his original design, but rather designed later to compliment his armor. It offered his head more protection, and various tactical read outs and communication options, along with a targeting computer that improved his long range fighting ability. When he put the helmet on it was time for a mission. When it came off the mission was over. It was a sign of the two faces he wore. One as a warrior, another as...something else. But what? Or was it just a mask he wore, that hid his true self. Ever since the beginning, he'd never truly known more than being a Maverick hunter. It was the only thing that gave him value. It was what put him apart from being the discarded junk he once was.

He sat in quiet contemplation until Moon interrupted. "My first memory was violence..." he said.

Dirge noted Moon was speaking in first person for a change. He'd missed it earlier, but now that he had a quiet moment it stood out. Moon was quietly growing as well. Of all of the hunters, Moon was the most like a mindless weapon. He'd barely had his AI completed before his head was crammed full of combat and weapons data, and he was shipped off to work for the hunters. "...but what I want is to go to space. That isn't my job now. I want to go to space still," he said.

"I wish I knew what I wanted, Moon. I hope you can go too. I just want Snowdrop to be ok. The last time I saw her she was mad at me. I don't want that to be my last memory of her," Dirge replied.

It was hours later. X finally came out of the room and placed his hand on Dirge's shoulder.

"Someone wants to speak with you." He said with a smile.

Dirge stood up, leaving his helmet outside as he walked in slowly. He wasn't sure what to expect as he entered the repair bay. "Snowdrop I..."

"I talked to him Dirge!!"

Snowdrop's chestplate was still open and connected to a series of machines. Dirge could see pieces of her former armor plate on a nearby table that had to be removed. They barely looked like the armor plates she had worn before, having been melted and charred and disfigured. One thing Dirge would notice was that one of Snowdrop's green eyes was now a blue eye. There was a decent marking showing that it had been hit.

Still, Snowdrop was still her ever loving self. "I talked to him..." She repeated. "But...I had to challenge him. As a student of Zenkuma, he took my teacher's words and twisted them. So...I had to. And you know what Dirge?"

She turned her head to look at him and grinned.

"....I made him use both hands."

"Yeah...yeah you did," Dirge said with a forced, and painful smile.

"Listen, I'm sorry for what I said earlier. I was so angry I couldn't see what was right in front of me."
