West Spring Harbor Laboratories are named for the county it is located it, which itself is named for its proximity to various mountainous hot springs, and because the next notable area of interest is a fishing community on the other end of the mountain range. A direct path has been carved allowing easy access between the labs and the town, where many researchers have relocated.

The facilities are a privately owned genetic research complex, and is one of the primary sites of research for some of the alleged "vampire ashes", and, for some reason, is also able to accommodate Behemoth. Or just his fur, the news reports remain unclear about the subject and much of the public doubts his existence.

The lab occasionally allows outsiders onto the premises to take advantage of the extensive technological advancements found there. Among them are the experimental android Synapse, who has taken it upon himself to do his own independent, yet concurrent experiments.

The fishing community, in a stir about the "vampiric" and "biblical" presences, invite metahumans and meta-nonhumans to the area. Some researchers have expressed further interest in studying met-human DNA for reasons you can probably imagine.

Researchers diligently went to work examining the alleged vampire ashes, calling in specialists of all shapes and creeds: geneticists, archaeologists, anthropologists, cryptozoologists, even people who claimed they were of otherworldly descent, but alas, very little progress has been made into cracking their exact nature. Such is the way of Mother Science.

Meanwhile, the android Synapse had commandeered some of the lab's facilities to conduct his own research. It too, proved largely fruitless, though it did open up other fields of study that he had previously not considered. Meta-humans could be a threat or a resource, yes, but there was a science to that. Vampires? The defied the laws of nature itself.

And what of nature, itself? What of the bountiful lands that we call our home, the same ones that seemed to give Behemoth his powers? Yes, it was typically accepted as fact that the creature increased in health and strength when in contact with the ground, for some reason, and hence he was suspended in an artificially induced coma, in coma juice. Like, you know the kinds. That stuff you always see people suspended in in comics and cartoons. Remember that time Goku had to use Vegeta's healing chamber? Sort of like that I guess. Or really anything with a clone storyline. But! I digress...

Sleeping the great beast felt it's body separated from the land It's energy constantly drained as it was carried from the site of it's defeat. His strength gone, no longer able to command nature or the earth itself as it slumbered the weakened Behemoth humiliated by it's lessers, it's prey. Vengeance would be had and it would be sweet but it felt the presence return within mocking him once again as he drifted into slumber.

The beast awoke but not truly for it's thoughts had returned but no control over it's senses or body with it. Some medical sleep brought by whoever had taken him kept his rage from destroying whatever place he was held in. As he fumed the voice returned with full force and within his minds eye a figure appeared, thin and sickly in appearance but still pride and confidence within it's eyes.

"Hello animal" the tiny man spoke "You should be dead and gone" came the reply.
"Oh how you wound me I only came to make a proposal to remove us both from this mess you put us in, all I ask for is a small favour" came the annoying voice again.
"What would this favour be and why would I ever need you", at this the figure smiled as he spoke a single thought into the beasts mind.
"I've seen you're past how you ruled the land and feared none and had all fear you. Now all I see is a puppet of the earth itself instead of its ruler dragging power from the earth and using it as was you're right. Oh those memories were stricken from you're body as the earth remade you into it's soldier. What i propose is freedom for us both all I ask in return is cooperation between us and the small allowance of controlling our body when outside of danger. You may still have you're glorious battle with those who wronged you but when dealing with lesser threats I will eliminate them and with all this will come freedom from both our prisons."
Behemoth was silent thinking on this knowledge not giving any indication of his decision for many days until a decision was made "You will have you're freedom and as long as you keep the promise it will stay that way."

Outside It's body scientist's monitoring it saw the beast shrink down to half it's height as the final reserves of the Earth's energy was expelled from it's body and a short spike in brain activity occurred only for the Behemoth to return to it's coma leaving the scientists in a panic trying to find the source of this change.

Spoiler:
 

While the months of constant observation had yielded the reasonable theory that as the creature's powers were dampened, it would shrink to a fraction of its former size. Still, on a fateful day, a lone researcher observed a sudden pang, a sharp increase in brain activity, then nothing.

The rest of the creature's vitals remained normal. Or, what could be considered normal given the circumstances. The doctor had a mild panic attack, but was reassured by a nearby guard. More guards than usual were employed here since the mysterious beast had been brought there. Sighing a sigh of relief, he returned to monitor duty.

Their lord gone, the abominable ex-human things knew one thing: to flee and find him again.

Their great Lord Val wasn't killed in his true form, and as such, hope remained. It was more than simple mind-control that bound Valencruz to his ghouls; theirs was a bond of blood. Literally.

The ghouls craved Val's blood as badly as he craved everyone else's. I know what you're thinking: "WOW! Human super-powered slaves that are bound to you even beyond death? That's amazing!" but they do have some downsides...

For one, they aren't smart. At all. Second? They're violent. Third? They look like roided-up lepers. And fourth? Their blood is undrinkable to vampires.

They are, however, pretty apt at locating their 'dead' master and waking him up...and what did they need?

Suddenly, all manner of alarms and codes rang out throughout the facility as; what some guy in the break room very scientifically called "ugly things", Val's full force of 20 ghouls invaded. They didn't get lost, they didn't look. They knew where to go, and they knew (institutionally) what they'd need as well.

Unfortunately, the break room guy didn't know all this, nor that Val's ashes would need non-ghoul human blood...not much. A tiny little drop would be plenty...

Alas, the ghouls did not know this, much to the soon-to-be despair of the break room guy.

"OHMYGODWHATAREYOUTHINGSWHEREAREYOUTAKINGMEIDONTHAVECLEARENCETOENTERTHISROOM-" The whiny guy being dragged by the monster things protested all the way to the chamber holding the ashes of the vampires. Good thing there was that large, steel vault-like door to hold them off, right?

Did I mention ghouls have super-strength? And that there's 10 of them? That door is fucking toast.

And lo! Was it so! As I am the omnipotent narrator and have mastery of all doors!

"AKHRKHjaH (LORD VAL?"

"RAGRAGRAGRAG (HE MUST BE AWAKEN)"

"ROOOOOAAAARGGR K (OKAY)"

"ROAR (AND NOW TO RELEASE OUR MIGHTY UNDEAD LORD SO HE MAY ONCE AGAIN FEED US WITH PRECIOUS ENERGY AND LET HIM RULE THE NIGHT AND THESE PATHETIC HUMANS AS THEIR CONQUER-WOAH WHAT THE FUCK, WHY ARE THERE TWO?!)"

"RAGOO? (THEY BOTH FEEL LIKE LORD VAL, HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY SPAWNS RIGHT?)"

"BLAGABLAHGABLAHBLAHGRA (JUST SPILL SOME ON BOTH, WHO CARES)" Of course, they can't actually hold a conversation. This is really more of just for your sake.

What DID happen, however, was that they demolished the steel containers holding the ashes, lifted the poor guy above them, and ripped the dude in half like a packet of sugar.

The blood then did some vampire-magic-mumbo-jumbo and BAM, there was Lord Valencruz, fully clothed (because kids read this) and...depressed? Well, he did kind of ruin his own "rule the world" thing.

He glared at his faithfully, blood addicted servants and...poofed away. Geez, that's cold. Without Val's blood, the ghouls remain violent and unstable...not to mention starving in agony.

Still, in his angst, he didn't notice the second group of ashes also covered in blood...

Also, along the way they caused a power outage. Or something. It was only for like a second.

And in an instant, Signal was pulled out of the void and appeared on a steel table. Her clothes, her skin... everything was intact. That was one hell of a ride, though.

She hopped off the table and noticed a couple of things. One, Valencruz's ghouls were also in the room, appearing to have just torn a man in two and spilled blood on something. Two, they were... not aggressive? They definitely looked hungry, though, and so as to not want to look like Mr. Torn-In-Two, Signal bolted out the door and towards whatever Exit signs she can find. Alarms were going off, there was a power outage, and... Signal could see in the dark just fine? The fuck was going on here...?

It was when she found sunlight that she got the answer she wanted... or not.

She stopped at the very edge of sunlight pouring into the door. Her skin tingled, and not in the good way. Cautious, she stuck out her pinky finger into the sun... and OW FUCK SHIT WHY DOES IT BURN. Signal immediately retracted her finger and looked at it. She went to lick the wounds and felt her incisors were a little longer than they should be.

Wait. When she set herself on fire, yeah the vampire bit down and took a good chunk of her blood, but then...

No. NO. HE SERIOUSLY TURNED HER.

So much for the sweet embrace of (permanent) death.

Signal walked further away from the door and sighed, rubbing her face to then reveal exasperation. She went further into the lab; maybe there was something nice and dark to cloak her from the sun. And maybe some longer-sleeved clothes...

As he waited the host thought upon his situation. He must be in some kind of lab or bunker, if so there will be information on him and other metas. It must be found and destroyed along with any who studied his body. He could sense more and more guards being added everyday as if they would matter once he awoke.

Suddenly the power was removed for a moment but enough to drop behemoth to the ground. The guards panicked and opened fire bullets bouncing off his hide as his eyes opened. With a grin Behemoth roared forcing the drugs from his system in a rush of adrenalin. Taking in the stunned group Behemoth noticed a small group in lab coats they would know the location of the research.

Behemoth decided that all but 1 scientist was expendable and the rest should be eliminated lest their knowledge ruin him. Ripping energy from the earth Behemoth collapsed the doorway as he advanced on the guards, their screams could barely be heard outside the room.

His father was a geneticist. Isaac remembered spending his summers looking for hidden entrances to the lab behind waterfalls and inside hollow trees. The hidden parts of the lab they didn't like talking about to the public. He was always discovered, and another secret entrance had to be removed. Eventually they told Isaac's dad to either quit or relocate Isaac. At that point Isaac lived with his mother full-time.

It was weird to be here again. He decided to trace what remained of Signal, and it brought him here. He was going to discover the secrets of this lab. That much he was sure of. He looked at the lab entrance from afar, it looks as if there was already some activity going on. Time to act.

"My head....ouch. When was the last time I had a hangover, 50 years ago? Geez...this feels close enough. I think. I don't totally recall the feeling." Valencruz rested his hands over his head, rubbing his eyes. What happened to him? Didn't he swear to SAVE all humans? Sacrificing a few, sure; that's fine, but killing ALL of them....why did he do that?

Why? He repeats the question to himself.

"Freeze or I will shoot!" He keeps trying to contemplate even as he approaches the man.

*BANG* BANG* the nameless mook guard fires and he hits, of course, nothing but black smoke.

One gorey death scene later, Valencruz is enjoying his first meal in a while, and still kept thinking about things.

Where the hell was he? How did he get here? Why did he murder all his followers? Did he do anything else he'd regret? How is he going to get these answers?

"HEY! WHO ARE YOU?! HOW DID YOU GET HERE?" Perhaps this gentlemen knew.

Valencruz's eyes shined an eerie, pale red as he turned to the armed guard.

"Hey. Wanna have a staring contest?" There was only thing to do when you're lost, confused, and wondering why you sabotaged your chance at ruling the world (while enjoying some nice O+)...

"heheh....hahaha....MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!" Laugh.

Running, running, running... why did Signal feel so hungry all of a sudden? (It was kinda more like a thirst, or something inbetween, I dunno this is all too confusing). And then she smelled it. Blood. She didn't notice much at the room where she woke up, but this... no, this was a fresh kill.

"No, no, no, I am NOT a vampire. I'm not!" Signal tried so hard to convince herself that she wasn't, but after what happened that night... was it really so surprising?

She put her fingers to her neck again. There was a... a pulse, yeah, but it didn't feel like a pulse. She ignored it and continued running.

And there she found him, an unarmed scientist cowering in the corner. Everything that had just happened unintentionally made him separate from the rest of the group and... Signal heard it. It was low, faint, but as she got closer (the man didn't seem to notice; he was facing the corner itself) it got louder, the rhythmic drum beat of his heart. And the smell of all that blood...

...well, if she was gonna succumb to this, she might as well make it look classy.

Using her telekinesis (Signal noted that now she has MUCH more stamina), the super-turned-vampire snapped the poor man's neck and ended his life in an instant. Rest in peace, your next of kin will be informed, etc. etc. She grabbed the dead man by the head and shoulder, contemplated where to bite so as to not make a mess, and decided that she was hungry enough to not give a fuck. She bit into the man's neck and began to dine...

As he observed the remnants of the room Behemoth grabbed the remaining scientist and spoke a simple sentence to the man "You will guide me to the database with the research conducted on myself then you will leave or die".

Walking to the doorway behemoth pushed aside the obstruction and began following the man noticing an emptiness to the facility he continued behind the man until he found the reason the area was empty, a perimeter of men around the corner, surrounding the section likely to slow behemoth down more than anything. They could be heard and smelt panic and fear ran rampant. These men knew they stood no chance and they were little more than lambs to the slaughter. What they didn't expect though was intelligence and Behemoth would rather not be wounded by some folly of instinct.

Looking around the area Behemoth grabbed a workbench of some engineer and threw it around the corner and waited until finally an explosion it would take moments to reload and that was all he needed.

Turning around the corner Behemoth ran straight through the barrier they had erected and grabbed the man with the rocket launcher and ripped him from his position and proceeded to use his body to bludgeon the surrounding soldiers.

This act left no room for the men to fire as behemoth waded into the group until they broke and began to ran.

With that annoyance removed Behemoth followed the scientist's stench until he was found cowering beneath a desk. Behemoth spoke "Now If you are done attempting to lead me into traps the server room would be nice".

Val, feeling refreshed, wandered around the halls trying to find his way around. Not being a total idiot, he simply mind-controlled some guy to tell him where he was, what direction the nearest city was in, how far it was, the time, and when sunset would be. Man, he was glad he'd thought to do that.

Still, something felt...off about this place. It was designed like a maze, and the decor was absolutely dreadful. Maybe it was the wallpaper, or the boring floor tiles....or all the blood and mangled bodies. People who WEREN'T killed by him.

"My...ghouls? This seems excessive and...forceful for them." Having apparently lost all the good common sense he had when he was brainwashing people for information, he follows them and sees....

A giant...cow-thing? He gazed up at curiously as it followed some man somewhere, having nothing else to do until the sun sets, he quietly tags along a fair distance behind Behemoth.

It had taken a while, but Signal had drained this dead man of all his blood. He looked ragged alongside his broken neck, face paralyzed in eternal fear and shock.

Deciding that she'd need all the protection she can find, Signal took off the man's coat and wore it on herself. It was rather snug, if bloodstained, and would protect her arms and most of her legs. Wandering around aimlessly, she finds herself sensing two beings nearby: what feels like the monster from before, the one that looked like a minotaur, and...

Ugh. Him.

But maybe they knew a way out?

Signal began to close a bit of distance, but kept enough of it to try and not be sensed by him. Wherever she was, she wanted out.

Behemoth continued down the halls until the scientist finally led him to the server room. This likely held months of research on metas that was likely to be replicated in few other places first though Behemoth told the scientist to bring up the data on any other metas held within the facility.

Soon Behemoth found the likely reason for his escape it seems the vampires were held here and at least some of the humans Behemoth killed were likely to be what the computer refers to as ghouls. No matter he would be thanked for the coincidence later as long as he did not decide to threaten Behemoth but now was time to eliminate the information.

Behemoth began by quickly killing the scientist for he did not deserve to suffer and continued by removing the servers and crushing them into fragments removing any hope of rebuilding the data within.

Turning around Behemoth noticed two new beings close by for all their attempts at stealth they both reeked of blood and they would not be approaching on their conditions.

"Speak or leave before I destroy you both."

Valencruz seemed rather unintimidated by the giant cow thing. Why should we be? His true form could match it in size and he felt confident he could kill it easily enough if he wanted to, no, what concerned Val more was the "you both" part.

Giving nothing but a smile to the monster he turned around and....

"....You ARE stalking me..." Her. AGAIN. Why is it always her?! But...something was different.

"Wait....I didn't hear your heartbeat...I still can't, and *SNIFF*....I can't smell your blood." Valencruz had never actually sired anyone before, he didn't know how to do it, at least he THOUGHT he didn't know. His head still hurt trying to remember what happened after he drank Sugar, like some sort of....super vampire-hangover. It also gave him light amnesia, convenient!

"No...you CAN'T be....but then..." He thought back to his own turning, and his long-dead sire. She asked him if he wanted to live a whole new life, see a whole new world, and; when he asked how it worked and if it would hurt, she said it be "quite the opposite" after that, he was turned by...

"Oh my god, if we slept together stake me now." Valencruz stared at her with a look of horror and disgust, and odd curiosity.

Signal returned the look to Valencruz. Slept together!? The nerve of him! (A small part of her mind humored the thought, and she had to turn her head as a result.)

And then it hit her: he didn't remember a single thing about that fight. At all! And it was all thanks to Sugar's blood! Signal began to laugh, remembering how ridiculous the events were. Sure, some of the memories were blurred, the ones she did remember painted a clear enough picture. Especially her dying moment. That was the worst. She sighed, hands to her hips and head facing down. All that bloodshed and he comes to the conclusion of the bedroom.

"No," in a cheery tone, "we didn't sleep together at all! Heh, you were about to drain me during the last stretch of the fight between us and, well, I set myself on fire! Wanted to make sure that if I died, I could at least take you with me!" Her laughing died down and her face took an immediate serious turn, finishing her story with, "And then you turned me. And subjected me to... well, let's just say that the fire was mild in comparison."

Signal then rolled her eyes to look at the Behemoth. "Keep intimidatin', I'm gonna keep walloping you with fastballs until you get a concussion."

Finally, as one individual lucky enough to escape slaughter was able to reach a fire alarm, the walls were bathed in crimson light and sirens blared in the ears of everyone in earshot. The facility had gone into lockdown mode.

It was then that a firing squad of roughly six armed gunmen rushed the area, alerted to the beings' presence by cameras, which exist. Without a second thought, or first thought for that matter, they pointed their rifles squarely at the two humanoid beings and unleashed a flurry of silver-tipped bullets, given to them specifically for this purpose. By who? Your mother.

The order was to kill, and kill they would. Or at least try to. Dammit, no one would say they didn't try, especially not your whore of a mother. That skank.

"Oh...I didn't know it worked like that." Don't misunderstand, Valencruz is by all manner a vampire Einstein. Relatively young at the age of 47 he had already acquired powers and abilities of vampires old enough to be classed "Ancient Ones.", still for all his power...there we still parts of being undead that were a mystery even to him. One thing was clear though: He HATED other vampires.

Why? Because they're often short-sighted morons concerned about killing rather than making sure there's food 200 years from now and are uncontrollable and...

"Wait, I did that..." He thinks aloud to himself. Whoops. He remembers killing his followers, but not why or what he did after, by Signal's story though, it was probably very stupid.

"...well...least now you get to feel what it's like. Nice coat, I assume that first kill went well? You know you can feed without killing the person, right?" He scoffed at her, unaware that as her sire he was suppose to teach her those things. Or maybe he was aware and didn't care.

"It suits you, doesn't it? You were a failure as a hero and now you always will be. What was that saying in the bible? He who fights demons must take care not to become them or something like that? Hahahaha...." He grinned, his sadism was still pretty intact.

"Let me ask you something: Are vampires monsters because they lack their former humanity? Or maybe humans are already monsters and a vampire is nothing but that monster let out. Power corrupts, right? Well, by the looks of your jacket and how you reek of a badly made kill, I guess I have my answer." He passed another glance to the monster and decided what it was doing was a very good idea. Satisfied he had shaken by Signal with some character-defining questions (again) he wandered off to find out how much about vampires his captives had found out.

Well Val, if you're walking around it can't be much.

"Oh, we're waxing philosophy now, lemme get comfortable," Signal tells Valencruz, floating in the air sitting on nothing with her legs crossed. It was still her telekinesis at work, but she felt a little bit of the natural flight vampires are endowed with. That's definitely the first thing she wants to practice.

"I didn't know, either, but I'm not a horror buff so this is as much of a surprise for me as it is for you. And the kill did go nice. But, you know, I had to bite the guy at least five times to find where the blood pops out. I was kinda close to just grabbing something and slitting the damn thing open instead, at least then I could stick a straw in there and it'd be much easier." Signal shrugs. He was delicious, though. A- has a nice texture to it. "If I did that while he was alive, he would have called for help and altered the authorities, I would have been filled with lead–or silver–and I would have been dead.

"And I think the quote's from some German guy. Niche, or whatever." Then she listened to him ask the question of what vampires were.

As he started to walk away, Signal replied: "I honestly don't care. Vampires are vampires, humans are humans. Everything has a poster child, an exception to the rules, and a miserable failure that meets neither expectations. Then you accept whether you fit one of these three roles or if you don't and you live life... maybe regardless of the decision, maybe with it on your mind at every corner."

Then the armored men stepped in firing their guns. She stopped many of the bullets with her telekinesis, redirecting the rest to the walls and facing them so as to better focus. "Guys, I'm not the one you should be shooting." She pocketed some of the bullets for herself; they'd definitely come in handy since if vampires and giant monsters exist, well...

"Why not shoot at the minotaur that wants to destroy all evidence that he was here?" Signal floated to the side.

Luckily, they had been prepared for these circumstances. Ceasing their strafing, the men evacuated the area before lobbing several grenades wildly into the room, having previously been informed that explosives and fire did to vampires and...whatever-the-fuck-the-cow-guy was the same thing explosions and fire did to toddlers.

The results of those findings were inconclusive, yes, mainly at the fault of some outliers, but still, 87% percent of toddlers explode under those circumstances, which would make it a success for America.

"Oh? He would've struggled? If only vampires could, I don't know, mentally dominate someone for JUST for such oc-"

He was cutoff by the view of some army dudes. He didn't feel like playing right now, besides, he was curious about what they had learned.

"Hmm, looks like some people are here for you. For MURDER. You know, that thing you so callously talk about slitting it's neck and drinking through a straw? It was a person? With loved ones and a family?" Glass houses, Val.

"Well, I'm sure you'll say something like 'I don't care'. Isn't that just amazing though? You would've never said that last I saw you. It was somebody's life, now it's "whoops, oh well." and all because you met me. Well, have fun with figuring out the whole vampire thing." He smiled as the bullets came raining down on him.

"Talk to me when you can do this." And poof! There we went. Man, that is crazy useful.

Of course, without training, it would take Signal centuries to learn her fog form...she'll just have to relay on her OTHER amazing powers for a while.

As for Val, he went to find a scientist to brainwash.

Any of the bullets she didn't pocket dropped to the floor. She quickly caught the grenades and pushed them to the back of the room all centered on one spot. Maybe there was a way out through these walls? I mean, that's how grenades work, right?

She let the men go, figuring that any more (unwarranted) bloodshed would only prove the vampire's point fur—

Wait. Why did she care about the opinions of a man who pretty much denied her death? The grenades, meanwhile, went off with a satisfying BOOOOOM. She didn't hear whatever it was Valencruz had to say before he vanished into that despicable black fog. It probably wasn't important.

Signal landed and walked over to whatever the grenade explosions created. Some shrapnel, sure, and char marks, but nothing worthy of an escape.

So she simply went back to floating, which was now about 50% flying, and wandered down the hallways looking for anything else she could take: a hat, maybe a hoodie, sunglasses...

While several men pursued the couple armed to the teeth, others sort of didn't. There was a big bull looking thing, just standing there, existing or whatever. I dunno. One of them sprayed him with a flamethrower and they took shifts doing that. Or something. Who cares. Also some of them got liquified by the grenades I guess; I don't really care.

Anyway so they took their guns and they scrambled down the labyrinth of hallways, because someone decided to model the facilities on how tangled chromatin gets, which in retrospect is not only a fire-hazard, but also fucking stupid. Many of the individuals on the upper floors (being called designated A, G, C and T, in that order, because Google) were also preparing to contain the threat. Men on U-Level, however, tearfully kissed photos of their wives, husbands, children and photos of those things. Photos of photos, I suppose. C'est la vie.

MEAAAAAAAANWHILE, Synapse was busy finishing Science in one of the Above-Ground Labs. He did notice the commotion, yes, but this science needed to be finished before he intervened, if he decided to intervene at all.

This facility sure was big. And maze-like. And confusing. But it allowed her to think, to be introspective and perhaps realize that... yeah, Lucy is nothing but a hypocrite and, in hindsight, she killed a man who had a whole life ahead of him (and she didn't seem to taste anything funny in the blood, but as that was her very first time, how could she tell?) and didn't even feel sorry.

Then again... was that really Lucy Lagrange, the girl who wanted to be a superhero the minute she got those powers, if only to learn control and discipline... or was that Signal, the reckless hero-for-hire (bounty hunter is such a.... strong word) who practically tore a city apart and took down a vampire, only to get turned herself in her flaming death throes?

...Signal really needed to rethink her priorities right now.

She somehow came across a large-ish locker room. Figuring that no one would mind if she took a hat or a face-cover, she concentrated and, with enough power, tore every locker door open. She manually searched each one, most of them containing belongings to people she... cared about? I mean, yeah she would save them if their lives were in danger, and it would be great if she got paid for it or got some kind of reward, but one of them sheds blood and, well, it was pretty good-smelling.

In one of the lockers she finds a gray EOD helmet with some scratches on its visor. It'll do; maybe she can find someone who can do a custom tint job on it or something. Wasn't there a guy around that church that... yeah, he could probably do it.

She takes the helmet and puts it on; it fits snug on her head. She keeps the visor up since the place feels pretty stuffy.

And what time is it anyway?
