"Please no...no don't do ahhhhh." The farmer fell over limp as Anderline stood over him. Behind her was her newest minion. Subject 001. He had foolishly insulted the queen when she had found him one day. So she made an example of him. He had great potential and using a little of her magic he became the perfect proxy for Anderline. At least for now. Soon she would have more proxies and a true warrior body to fight for her. That was not the main focus for right now. Anderline was in Mt.Paozu working on meeting another member of Cure. While she had not joined the group yet she was planning to meet there members as soon as she could. She wanted to fight there strengths and weakness. She would help fill those voids.
Her minions moved to overthrow the farmer's corpse into a ditch. He'd grab a shovel and make quick work burying it. She wanted a nice house retreat to meet the members of cure. Somewhere far away from prying eyes. Also with a hint of nature because she must enjoy that. Plus, a bug lady flying into a city would be noticed right away. At least she assumed so. Why would it not be noticed? Anderline looked around. Everything was set up. She had brought some muffins and water for anyone who came to drink. She prob should have gotten more stuff but she assumed most of them would not want to eat anyway. Anderline looked around once more seeing if any of them were here yet. She had only meet Chromo and heard some mention of his father and his mother. So she was ready to meet them and join this organization. Hopefully, she put on a good show.
Today was the day! Chromo had been itching to introduce his father and mother to his new bug-buddy, Andre- Chromo couldn't remember or pronounce her full name, so he decided to just call her that. Tanga and Virus were rather busy, so he had to go to his "uncle", Ghoti, to accompany him. With enough whining and puppy eyes and almost a tantrum, Chromo did manage to get the fish-headed bio-android to tag along, with Chromo taking the lead to escort him to where he and his friend agreed to meet. Chromo had dashed far ahead of the fish, but a tell-tale trail of smoke and charred ground was left in the bug's wake to trail to his location.
Chromo mumbled to himself, perched in a tree and glancing to and fro. A click of realization echoed as he saw a familiar swarm nearby, much like his own band of lessers! "HEEEEY! IT'S MEEEE, HEY!" The younger insect's shrill voice echoed as he darted forwards, only stopping to bite off and swallow an exposed finger of the man Andre's minion had buried. It was a little salty and stale, but pungent in taste. Shrugging, Chromo flew back to perch beside his insectoid friend. "I brought a friend! He's a little weird, but he's cool! Mom and dad were kinda busy, though..." Chromo sighed. "But I left them a note, so they might come! I'unno." He remarked with a buzz, turning to eye the nearby road. Ghoti had to be here any second now... Or was he really that slow of a slowpoke?

The iccessant complaints and whimpers of Chromo were not something one could resist for very long. Not even the dapper gentle-fish, Ghoti, could resist the wails of the bug child! So, he had come to these Eastern mountains with the excited bug, to find a friend Chromo had met before. They wanted to recruit them, but apparently, they needed Ghoti's natural charisma to make this happen... This was more what brought the fish man out to this area.
When they landed, Chromo bolted through trees and bushes, knocking down the plants in the wake of his desire to find this person! Ghoti had their private Pilot keep their position there until they come back, with or without this new person. Strangely, the fish man had a hoverboard that was much like a skateboard with him as he rushed as fast as he could after his buggy partner! Ghoti was surprisingly skilled with, using the debris Chromo left behind as rails and ramps to perform some tricks off of.
"I AM HERE," Ghoti called out, leaping from above a tree to where the two were just seconds after Chromo was inquiring about the fish! He landed on the ground, unfortunately snapping the board in half and performing the splits on the ground beneath nearby the other bug... This was not graceful. He whimper painfully, cursing their production cast with the pin scouter actively recording his voice. He stated, "Note to staff... GET STRONGER HOVERBOARD MATERIALS..!"
Ghoti then got to his feet, still unawares of the body that the two bugs were feasting upon. He bowed to them, also unaware that the person they were meeting was in fact another bug bio-android like Chromo and Virus! He iterated, "Hello, I am Director Ghoti of CURE Industries! Chromo here had greatly advised me to come out to meet you about inviting you into the company..!"
Sorry about the delay guys. Life's been kicking my ass!

Anderline had waited sometime before Chromo arrived. She flew over her minion walking over holding a plate of food mostly just muffins looking at Chromo. Anderline smiled. "It is nice to see you once more Chromo. Can I offer you anything? We have muffins and water. Course we have the body too if you want that." Subject 001 one turned his head as Ghoti arrived walking towards him. His eyes glittered as the man gasped out, "Help me." It was quiet and soft. Clearly, he was controlled by Anderline not 100 percent but all he could do was speak. That was all that might be in his control. He'd bow off offering the food to Ghoti if he wanted it. Anderline turned over, "Ah this is your friend Chromo." Anderline smiled as she flew over looking at the man.
He was a sort of Fishman. She had never seen anything like it. Must have been another of this bio-android creations. That what she assumed anyway. The man introduced himself as Director Ghoti of Cure Industries. So they had a front. A Facade. It was good she had the human now. Now she had a facade as well. A bug flying about drew more attention then a man walking about for his normal day. "I wish I could shake your hand but as you can see i'm quite too small so." She'd motion her hand. Her servant moved one of his hands opening it out to shake Ghoti. "This is Servant 001. He is well my thrall if you will. My Proxy for the time being. I am Anderline and of course as I assumed Chromo told you I'd like to join Cure. Thought it'd be good to meet the other have a nice relaxing time in nature. Sit and see the flawed world before we change it for the better of all." She'd smile, course most of it was a facade. She was going to worm her way in and take over. One step at a time.

"Ooooooh, muffins!! You know me so well!" Chromo rang after his friend offered him some snacks, instantly lunging towards them and starting to chow down, promptly ignoring the controlled human's plea for help also, only turning around with three muffins stuffed in his mouth as Ghoti emerged from the shadows, landing on the ground with an impressive pair of splits. Chromo clapped his nub-hands together to applaud the "graceful" landing in his eyes. "Wooooo! Encore, encore!"
Still, they had business to attend to. The larger Chromo finished one more muffin before turning to the group and halting his feast as Andrenidne explained her purpose and such. "Yeah! And Andre here is like, uh... Oh, oh oh! Tell him about the bug thing with naturalness and stuff and a creator guy! That thing!" Chromo chimed, bouncing up and down. The little bug turned to Ghoti, still grinning wide. "But Andre here is my bud now! She does the thing with the clones and stuff like me also, sorta. It's really cool." The child chimed, not having much to say on the business end of things...

Ghoti rose his head after the person spoke, and truth be told, he honestly should've been paying attention to the fact they were feasting upon a still living humanoid! In fact, he hadn't even realized the Humanoid that Chromo's bug friend had taken over in some sort of hypnotic state! They reached a hand out to Ghoti's to shake it, the businessman doing just that. His expression was one reflecting contemplation, and remembrance that this was someone Chromo was making friends with. They could clone themselves, take over people, speak as well... An amusing thought came to that'd he not say. That was for later.
"I see," Ghoti replied solemnly, "Andrened... Andrinede- Do you mind if I just call you Andre?"
Ghoti huffed a sigh out before recomposing himself. He had to recruit this one, after all! She'd been willing to join already, but she had the personality and action of someone who wanted to lead. Change their methods and replace the core with what they're working with, much like Doctor Nikel... They couldn't have that! There was plenty of room to go around, but the core was with CEO Tanga!
Chromo calling Andre by the name Ghoti stated gave the fish express permission to do just that! He continued, with refilled confidence, "Andre, it's good that you want to join CURE already! I imagine it's because of our friend Chromo here. However, there are some things we've to cover prior to joining. One particularly being because we've a front to this, we can't have loose ends in the form of those working for us, like this individual you've taken over! He is struggling to retake control of himself and escape... My friend, I am sorry for what you've been brought into. There is nothing I can do to stop this."
He directed the statement at the thrall, not grabbing any of the muffins offered to him. He knew not where they'd come from and it was something he'd not want to learn! Ghoti wanted the fighting man to relinquish himself fully to this bug. Either that or there'd be another body being devoured by these bugs before they left to CURE this day!

Chromo ate the muffins without any trouble. Seems Chromo was still sold on what she was selling. It was about selling it to Ghoti. He would be a deal harder it would seem. He didn't take the muffins off the bat. He'd stare as he seemed to have a tough time saying her name, "Andre is fine with me." She said as her servant just blinked. He'd was holding the plate to Ghoti waiting for him to take one though most of them were taken by Chromo of course. Still, he waited for Ghoti to take one. He was a good servant like that. Chromo wanted her to tell Ghoti about her creator and how she was created. She nodded to her friend before turning back. She'd tell her story once she dealt with Ghoti. He didn't seem very convinced she could control her thrall.
She was insulted by this. She didn't show it though. She just rubbed her hands. Her thrall moved back putting down the plate. He'd turn back looking at Ghoti. "Please don't free me. I love my Job. All my Knowledge is merely just apart of the hivemind." He'd smile as if they meant anything. Anderline got onto his head. "Hmph. You think we must cut loose ends. Is this truly one my friend. I lacked my control over him for today. Why? I wanted to show to you all what I have to offer. One day when we fight what will our foes fear? Will they fight when they see what becomes of them." She pointed at Chromo, "Food." She pointed at her minion, "a Thrall to our armies. To kill more of there friends. The last option to become a robot. A Mechanic weapon to serve us. Don't you see my friend? I wanted to show you what will become of our foes." It was course sorta of a veiled threat.
Her servant nodded. "Anything else I can offer you two." Subject 001 spoke. As Anderline then remembered she had to tell her story to Ghoti, "Oh yes I forgot. Well, it is a short story my friend Ghoti. I was from another planet where a scientist wanted to create the ultimate bug creature. He left many bugs to breed and after two hundred years I was born. I came here and meet Chromo. That was basically my life story. Anything else I should add." Anderline said looking over at Chromo.
Chromo was zoned out to the adult talk as Ghoti and Andre began to discuss the specifics. The little bug child was still oblivious to the control over the human, only snapping out of his hunger when the man offered anything else, causing Chromo to perk up. "Oooh, oooh, I want some Hetap! Mountain Chill flavor!" He chimed, still grinning wide, before turning back to his meal of muffins, resuming his feast...
Not much to say for now. Consider Chromo EXEMPT from the post order and eating for now- I'll pop back in when I have something to say!
