Piezo PL: 7,500
Peltier PL: 5,000
The norm for both Piezo and Peltier had become finding a populated city, looking for someone that was willing to give them the time of day, inevitably watching half the people around ignore them or have a panic attack, and finding one lone person to have a conversation with. This day was the gift that kept giving as there was another city but the same outcome, and Piezo at least was starting to take offense to the way they were treated, but to a degree taking responsibility for the reactions all the same.
"I'm starting to gather the Earthlings either don't appreciate our appearance or they adhere to the laws of street travel more harshly than we had anticipated."
Both androids walked shoulder to shoulder down the center of the street opposed to the sidewalk where the sane people chose to avoid traffic. Neither gave any attention, as was becoming a tradition, the the honking horns, screaming drivers, or the vehicles swerving to collide with both on numerous occasions. A lengthy time had passed with no signs of anyone willing to greet or approach them in a similar time frame as the other cities they had been in, and all the could deduce was that the people of Central City were simply rude.
Hours passed as the paced the streets, tried flagging down anyone who was close enough to make eye contact, and it was the same reactions of avoiding them in every instance. At most they had a few people following with phones out as they both continued walking down the middle of the street, stopping as they saw a shop that caught there attention at least from the outside, but before either spoke up or made any attempt to go inside there was a loud blaring horn, the sound of screeching tires, some loud gasps, and from the corner of Piezo's eye he saw a large truck with a trailer attached swerving to avoid running into him.
There was no way a vehicle of its size could stop in time with a full loaded trailer, but that meant swerving only sent it heading towards Peltier who was not nearly as observant as his counterpart. The heavy truck slammed directly into the android, but he didn't as much as budge, leaving heavy dents in the street from his feet digging in, and the trailer bent and slammed over onto its side. Piezo lifted both hands to stop the skidding trailer for colliding with him as a manged truck and trailer were bent around both androids. Peltier simply stepped back leaving a mold of himself in the grill of the truck, but Piezo shoved a bit harder than he had intended at the trailer as it had partially wrapped around his side, sending it flying loose from the truck and right through the front of the building almost all the way to the back of it. If there was a ship or ships inside, they were either a wreck at the back of the building or somewhere in the alley behind it at this point.
