    Scaramouche flashed Lunette a big ole smile, "You're welcome, Lu~! I'm sorry I made ya guys ankle on over here in this swelterin' heat. After we finish up with Dr. SALLI, how 'bout we fly outta this joint and grab some lunch? It'll be my treat~!" The android had a strong feeling Curiosity would gladly accept the noble (and breezy!) job of being their furry taxi. Hey, it beat walking on hot, scathing asphalt, right? "Anyway, I guess I'll head back inside and see if I can wrangle the good doc to us. Shouldn't be too much lo - "

    Fwiiiiish...!

    "Mm! You're very...round!"

    "Floyd."

    "Pretty! I meant pretty!"

    "Mhm."

    Oh yes, that ass was deliciously fat. It also came bundled with a pair of claws, too~!

    "Well, well, well~! If it ain't our savior of the day, Lil' Black Sambo. Wherever are your manners~?" Thought you were spared, baby? Fat chance in Robo-Hell! The robot swiveled on his ruby heels and locked eyes with the smaller human, Scaramouche once again being a pain in the ass for poor Nurse Floyd. "Oh hey, ya brought Fluffy's drinky-poo! Thanks~!" he exclaimed happily. Good, 'cause no one wanted to haul an unconscious Nargacuga to the emergency room. Scaramouche stepped aside, giving the nurse a wide berth, and tipped his paddy hat to who he assumed was Portal Hopsital's fabled doctor. "And, uh, hello to ya too, Dr. SALLI! Nice to finally make your acquaintance."

    Wow, she was pretty, er... advanced-looking! Dark grey in coloration, cyan optics, synthetic... hair fibers? A small frown betrayed Scaramouche's unspoken thoughts while giving the good doctor a cursory scan of his own. Was every robot he met on Portal Breach more cutting-edge than him...? She even wore a pair of glowing earrings - glowing earrings! Talk about extra.

    It took all of Scaramouche's willpower not to quietly feel the sides of his head for a pair of nonexistent ears.

    "I don't believe we have met? I'm Dr. SALLI. Are either of you in need of a doctor?"

    Hm, no... As progressive as Dr. SALLI's model was, the feminine robot severely lacked in the one department Scaramouche excelled in. Maybe two, if social skills were counted. "Oh no, we're not injured or nothin' like that~!" he smiled, mindful of his artificial teeth. Yes, Scaramouche was painfully aware of how big they were and how many he had (kinda had to be when everyone kept gawking). He was also cognizant enough to remain two steps ahead of Dr. SALLI's confusion. Best to keep things concise and matter-of-fact.

    "We're actually here to express our gratitude for your selfless services in the line of duty - past, present, and future." Without stating too much, the taller android circumvented any unwanted faux pas regarding Dr. SALLI's recent troubles with a certain ex-doctor who shan't be named. If Dr. SALLI was as intelligent as he thought she was, the other robot would have no issue reading in-between Scaramouche's lines. Well, assuming Dr. SALLI wasn't as thick as a block of concrete like Shaiamils. "So! Havin' said all that saccharine mush, we also brought ya a token of our appreciation! One moment." He politely excused himself, turning his back to the others, and stuck a hand inside his jacket.

    Rustle, rustle, rustle...

    "Ah, here it is~!" Where once there had been nothing in the android's metal hands, there was now... a gift! If anyone asked how Scaramouche managed this feat, they most likely wouldn't appreciate his subsequent response. Don't ask, don't tell, babes! "It may not be much," he added, carefully offering the arrangement to the doctor, "but we thought you'd, uh, fancy a bit of color to your office space. It's, like, practically your home, right?" And who didn't like decorating their home? Y'know, aside from a robot who hadn't achieved that level of self-awareness yet. Cough... "Just a lil' somethin' from Curiosity, Lunette, myself, and Nurse Floyd~!" Did you hear that, baby? Ole Scaramouche was doing you a solid. Try to play along and not drop your spaghetti, huh?



    Dun dun duuuuun!

    Dr. SALLI has received a gift: one three-tier wooden stand, complete with three artificial succulents for her office! The bowls are made of a tough ceramic, and the succulents themselves are faithful to their natural counterparts. They'll keep their color no matter the season, making them perfect all-year round!

    With sip of the cold water, Lunette could feel herself cooling down from the inside out. The water hitting her mouth and throat felt relieving, having it previously felt dry and almost itchy. Her ears perked up at the mention of grabbing some lunch, something she could definitely agree to! "That sounds lovely! I hope there's something big enough to satisfy Fluffy's appetite!" They'd need to buy a large amount of food to appease that stomach, surely! And with a mighty appetite, there was a thirst to match, as two staff-workers came out to greet them, one holding a bowl and the other with water bottles, no doubt to fill the bowl and give to Curiosity. How generous!

    Lunette smiled and was about to wave in greeting before the male nurse mentioned how she looked round, quickly corrected to 'pretty'. There was a slow blink as Lunette fought off the desire to pout at being called round (AKA FAT), but smiled instead and waved as previously desired. "Hello~ It's lovely to meet both of you." The android doctor was so... shiny! It was interesting that her plating and eyes were near identical to Scaramouche, too! Kinda weird, but... perhaps that was just a common color combination. "Nope, we're fine~ Hot, but fine~" she assured the doctor, glancing over to Floyd as he gave Curiosity some water.

    Scaramouche's small frown didn't go unnoticed by those blue eyes, but Lunette said nothing at the moment. Instead, she subtly grabbed his hand (or a few fingers really) and gave a tender squeeze. Remaining quiet and letting her tall companion speak, it was time to reveal their gift! Ta-daah~ Succulents! A hardy plant that was both beautiful and small enough for many tiny places! A versatile thing~ Lunette smiled so much that her eyes squinted, and tail swayed almost rhythmically back and forth behind her. She noticed Floyd's name was added in there, but didn't mind. He was her coworker, yeah? No doubt he also wished to show appreciation to the hardworking and pretty robot lady!

    ”Hufff... Huff...

    The beast has plans to fly out of there like the bat out of Hell whether they were riding or not and what good luck they were. Anything to get out of this heat, even Kev’s roof was out of the question, unless he wanted to become baked Deviant Ala Roof. The warm winds would at least be breezy not to mention there were always some cold pockets in the air.  

    Grrrrrrrrruuk....

    Now at the mention of lunch the beast’s furry ears perked up before falling flat against his regal skull as the embarrassing sound of his stomach roaring its agreement. The mere mention of a meal possibly by prepared or chosen by this pair was enough to keep the deviant from thinking about the heat. So with large sighhuff the larger fluff relaxed and settled for trying not to think about what the lovely couple had in store for lunch. He was already drooling lightly from the heat, but with the pair’s reputation of large helpings and a great variety of tasty food Curi was starting to feel like a waterfall.

    Click... Click....

    Sharp ears perked up at the familiar distant sound of clicking heels, the lack of Thunk.. was a good sign. Squirming slightly to reposition himself on his belly the large pseudowyvern turned in time to watch the pair step out into the heat. Had he been a Zinogre his tail would have knocked over the columns that kept the awning from filling on them. Instead the beast let out a deep form of cooing and began his deep purring.

    ”Troooo~ ... PRrrrrrrrrr...

    Soon he had his back flat against the ceiling as he tried to get closer to the approaching pair. One never forgets the face of their robotic saviour, or her odd human... companion? Hmmm.. It had never quite peeked the deviant’s interest about this pair’s relationship. Just who were they for each other?

    That question could wait the cool contained liquids were more interesting for the beast. Shamelessly, Curiosity waited for a bottle to be set down once the human’s hand had move far enough the deviant attacked. In a smooth motion he had snatched up a bottle into his beakmaw and tossed his head up to empty its contents into his waiting maw. From watching hunters gulp down potions into the middle of fights, the beast was smart enough to know that the container wasn’t edible. He sloshed the cool liquid in his mouth about before proceeding to swallow the mouthful.

    "Mm! You're very...round!"
    ”Thhsss! ”

    It couldn’t have been helped that the last few cold droplets which were about to go down came back up at the nurses comment. Curt snorted as well as crunched down on the plastic. He was pleased at its easy destruction as well as the loud crunching sound. It reminded him of breaking bones but less dramatic.

    "Floyd."
    "Pretty! I meant pretty!"
    ’Pretty and fluffy! And don’t you forget it... prey...‘

    Setting down the squashed container, Curi  turned to the large metal bowl filled with more cool water, amusement dancing in his ruby red eyes. Giving the human male a gentle thank you in a form of a light headbutt to the shoulder the overheated fluff started on his bowl of cool water. It might not be glacier cold but in this heat it was refreshing all the same. After a few throat soothing gulps of his bowl the beast felt gaze warm his side. How could he forget who they were there to see?

    "Hello Curiosity. You look healthy!"
    ”Prrr...”

    Raising his striped head the beast practically beamed at being remembered by the doctor. Licking his large dripping maw clean he approached the presented metal hand. He gave her a few simple sniffs to verify her identity. Sniff... Metal... snifffff...overly sanitary... clean... Snif-paper... sanitary clothes.. Verified!...

    It was her~ he bumped the tip of his beakmaw against the palm of her metallic palm before pushing forward so that it slid to the top of his fuzz broad head. He moved even closer, ignoring the exchange of words among the four capable of speech. He was too busy affectionately thanking her for his life. ”Prrr...”

    "Just a lil' somethin' from Curiosity, Lunette, myself, and Nurse Floyd~!"

    ’Hmm?’

    By then the beastie had managed to curve his neck around the back of the gyroid’s knees and had been rubbing his cheek against her. For all he knew she could be sitting on his neck from his nuzzles, not the he minded. ”Trrrrrr...” As a fellow feline-like being it was almost customary to leave a bit of yourself on your favourite people, whether fur or scent. Looking up has his name was mentioned the deviant peered at the gift curiously.

    Such odd little plants... Pausing his affection he tilted his head slightly to catch their scent as Scaramouche presented it.

    ... Sniff..Sniff... soil-ish... watery plant?.. very odd...

    Curiosity would have booped it with his beakmaw but he wasn’t in any anglers do so. Perhaps another time.

    ”Prrr~....”

    Li'l Black Sambo? The nickname earned a different reaction from Dr. SALLI and nurse Floyd. While SALLI looked completely confused, the man let out a bark of a laugh. "You're one off-color robot, you know that?!" It wasn't everyday that he heard such terminology, but the nurse was hardly offended. He merely gave Scaramouche a wide grin as he approached and set to taking care of the Nargacuga. "Yeah, of course! What, you think I was gonna let him die of thirst just because you're obnoxious?" He smirked as he poured the water for Curiosity, only pausing when the beast crunched the plastic in his beakmaw. He flinched at the sound, grimacing. Guess Curi didn't approve of ass as much as he did! He calmed after a moment and nudged his firm head against Floyd's shoulder affectionately. "Aaw...you're like a giant kitty cat!" The human gave the creature's neck an affectionate stroke as he guzzled the water down.

    "Pleased to make your acquaintances as well!" SALLI responded with a kind smile. Although neither he nor the cat woman looked familiar, that was probably for the best. If they weren't frequent visitors to the hospitals, that meant the both of them were healthy! The feline woman was very fluffy, with sparkling blue eyes like sapphires and lovely purple hair. The robot was an interesting one, quite taller than one would expect! Colorful clothing was a slight distraction, it wasn't often that she encountered an android that dressed so...elaborately! Even SALLI herself was clothed in a doctor's labcoat and not much else! She found herself wondering what his function was, although she moved on from that quick when the two confirmed that they didn't need medical help. "Oh?" Well that was...interesting.

    "Nope, we're fine~ Hot, but fine~"

    "Hot is right!"

    "Floyd."

    "...B-because it's summer!"

    Dr. SALLI seemed to roll her optics at the nurse's antics, who moved on to shooting the pair a huge thumb's up. The gynoid focused on Curiosity as he sniffed at her hand. Once he was sure, he bumped his beakmaw into her palm like a sweetheart! She allowed her hand to slip over his fuzzy skull, metal digits rubbing against him affectionately. The closeness only increased from there, something which would have been unprofessional if Curiosity was a patient. SALLI reminded herself that she was on a break, and that this was a friendly visit. She seemed to glow as she leaned against the larger creature. "I'm glad to see you too."

    "We're actually here to express our gratitude for your selfless services in the line of duty - past, present, and future."

    "..." Her optics shuttered in a blink before SALLI directed them downwards. "Ah...that is... very kind of you. Both of you." She was bashful under such praise. Selfless service? Past, present, and future? This job was her life. Such sudden gratitude from people she hadn't even met, let alone treated, was...strange. Curiosity being here couldn't have been a coincidence either. Perhaps this was related to...that night. She became even more flustered and briefly sat down upon Curi's neck. "A t-token? Oh, that's not necessary, your kind words are token enough!" Turning away briefly, Scaramouche withdrew the gift and presented it with a flourish!

    "Oh my..."

    "That's adorable!"

    Reaching forward, SALLI accepted the gift into her slender hands, optics focused on it with a single-minded concentration. A decoration for her office, plastic plants that wouldn't need constant care. Beautiful ceramic bowls. SALLI was careful with the stand as she inspected each of the plants with her fingertips, feeling the firmness of the succulents. Curi sniffed at her gift and she tilted it for him to sniff better. "It's...beautiful." Smiling brightly, the robot lifted her gaze. "This will look gorgeous in my office-home. This little gift means a lot to me." If they were offering it, well... It'd be rude to deny it. "Thank you, Curiosity, Lunette, Floyd, and..." She trailed off, stare blank as she accessed her processor. ...Hm. "I'm sorry, I don't know your name, but thank you as well. It will have a nice home on my desk for all visitors to see."

    Nurse Floyd grinned an uneven grin, scratching the back of his neck in a manner he hoped was nonchalant. "H-hey, it's no problem~! You're welcome, SALLI!" Woof, he had no idea about this gift! No doubt, the robot included him into it because of uh...well, his rather obvious crush. Who was he to deny? This was the happiest he'd seen SALLI in a while! You know, unless it had to do with a job well done.

    Whoa, talk about a time lapse! Someone by the name of 'Zimbo' was surely to blame for this considerable delay.

    Between their monster friend's water theatrics and Lunette's pouting, Scaramouche decided to spare poor Nurse Floyd for his lack of discretion regarding certain... feminine matters. With an ass that fat round, who couldn't help but comment~? If the plucky man got obscenely fresh, however, then he was going to find himself rolling home in a tin can. "What can I say?" the android shrugged casually, a toothy grin plastered on his metal face. "I emulate what I see, and you're as colorful as they come~!" And a smidgen off - but that went without saying, right?

    "Aaw...you're like a giant kitty cat!"

    Like so.

    The irony of Floyd's words wasn't lost on Scaramouche, even if the nurse hadn't intended it (or if Floyd had temporarily forgotten that one of them was a giant kitty cat). Feet were quickly becoming the fastest land animals. The robot mimicked Dr. SALLI's roll of her optics and directed the bulk of his attention onto the smaller unit. Hm, unit... didn't roll quite right off the tongue. Model, perhaps? Gynoid just seemed so... pretentious; new age lingo at its finest. "It may not be necessary, or even logical, but then it wouldn't be sentimental if it was~!" Scaramouche was reading the doctor loud and clear: a robot's function was its purpose - its life. It went against the very notion of gift-giving to reward a deed or action that was expected in the first place, and robots were typically classified as things. More specifically, property. And folks didn't go around showering their homes, their cars, or their appliances with little tokens of gratitude.

    Still, receiving a heartfelt gift, no matter how meager, had brought such delight to Dr. SALLI's face, and Scaramouche desperately hoped his fellow robotic... kin(?) was testing the limits of her coding in a positive, more wholesome light! If nothing else, he at least trusted Dr. SALLI to not deem the succulents irrelevant to her directives and thus throw them away. She wouldn't be the only robot he'd encountered to do so, sadly...

    "It's...beautiful. This will look gorgeous in my office-home. This little gift means a lot to me. Thank you, Curiosity, Lunette, Floyd, and... I'm sorry, I don't know your name, but thank you as well. It will have a nice home on my desk for all visitors to see."

    "Scaramouche~!" he cheerfully pipped up, accompanying the tipping of his paddy hat with a amicable bow. "I personally think you'll adore fancyin' up your office; a lil' personal touch helps break the tedium of daily life!" The android wisely omitted the word "home". How could the hospital be Dr. SALLI's home if she'd never experienced life beyond it? That'll have to be a lesson for another time, and by another bald-headed fellow (wink wink~). Floyd so owed Scaramouche for the silky-smooth plug, by the way. And don't think he forgot about your unspoken reassurance, Lil' Miss Kitty~! Fluffy, you were fine being Dr. SALLI's furry seat, so no affection for you.

    A loving hand rested on Lunette's shoulder and pulled the Anitra close, Scaramouche leaning into her plush coat. Aw, Lunette always looked so cute whenever she purred, squinty-eyed and happy... "Well~!" he smiled, resting his free hand on his hip. "You probably got a busy day ahead of yourselves and we've kept ya from your tasks long enough." Cyan optics shifted onto the pair of rumbling furballs. "What d'ya say, babes? Shall we leave the good doctor and her lip-smackin' peon to their work~?" Speak now, lest Curiosity became a permanent fixture of Dr. SALLI's office!

    Aw good, she liked it! It also seemed evident that no one had given the doctor a gift before, as even if she was robotic, her expression was seen easily within Lunette's eyes. Perhaps being with Scaramouche had taught her to take note of certain cues on robotic faces, though Salli was indeed far less expressive than her darling mi vefo. "A plant always seems to brighten up any space! They're very homey and just pleasant to look at and have around, and this one doesn't require too much maintenance." A little water here, sunlight there, and it was a happy plant! Nothing the doctor couldn't handle.

    The touch just encouraged even louder purring to emit from deep within Lunette, her fur slowly fluffing up like a nesting chicken, whiskers twitching along. "Mmpprrrrr...~" It took great restraint not to completely forget what they were doing here, wanting to falling into Scaramouche's arms and immediately snuggle. That'd be for later, however! It also seemed the visit was short... maybe too short? Had the android wanted to say or do more for the other? Lunette glanced up at her tall companion curiously, head tilting slightly to the left. "If you're certain... I don't want to be a thorn in anyone's side, especially when there's others in need of their services."

    The feline looked at both Salli and Floyd, smiling wide and curtsying a little, daintly lifting the hem of her dress just a smidge, "it was very lovely to meet both of you, and thank you so much for all of your hard work. If you both are ever on break and have time, please come by the Moonshine Tavern! We can offer you a nice place to relax and have a good meal and drink -- on us!" Whether or not Salli drank some form of oil or whatever else robots chose to drink (or not to drink), surely being in a relaxing atmosphere and away from the city would be a nice change of pace.

    "What d'ya say, babes? Shall we leave the good doctor and her lip-smackin' peon to their work~?"

    ’What’s a peon?...’

    The good doctor’s plush couch pondered angling his head to better sniff of the offered plants. Sniff... Sniff?... Curi did make a good fluffy couch, a couch that didn’t calculate that he would be dipping his neck to support the weight of a a few great swords. She looked much lighter than she was. Dr Salli wasn’t as heavy as some of the monsters this Nargacuga used to hunt, but she wasn’t light as a feather either. The beast pursued the thoughts further until he came to the conclusion that he would be able to fly with her on his back, but his usual quick maneuvering would either accidentally buck her off or she would slow him down.

    The deviant listened to his fellow fluff and carefully nodded in agreement. The hospital was always busy, especially with an elder dragon flying about literally sucking the life out of everyone. Let’s not mention that with an avian hand down there would be more to do, but this nargacuga doesn’t know this. Looking up at the Gynoid with a happy face, which didn’t quite meet his red eyes. Some wounds had opened up by being in this place and they weren’t the type that nanobots can fix.

    After carefully helping the metallic doctor back onto her clickity feet the beast gave her one last nuzzle accompanied by a good SSSNNIIIFFFFFFF... Before turning to give a beakmaw boop to her human companion’s shoulder, in away ‘accidentally’ knocking him into Salli if he wasn’t ready to receive the beast’s parting affection. Oopsies~

    Curi crawled backwards afraid he might even do more harm if he was closer, besides with a good flight and a promise of a full belly would get him to do almost anything. A quick glance to the borrowed metal bowl told him that he had finished the water that they had given him. He was good to go for the flight even with the passengers, as long as they don’t to plan to fly over a desert, a volcano, or some area with that effect.

    ”Prrrr...”

    Someone by the name of 'Zimbo' pleads the fifth.

    "Is that right?" Nurse Floyd considered the robot's explanation, brown eyes looking him up and down. From the shitty grin on his face to those bright red heels. "Well, shit! I feel bad for anyone that interacts with me then, cause if you're emulating me right now? I must be obnoxious as hell!" He chuckled, not minding a bit of self deprecation as he gave the robot a smirk. "As for being colorful...you're one to talk, aren'tcha? Looking like a classy clown from the 40's!" If it weren't for the fact that he was dating this Rubenesque cat lady, Floyd would have had a few suspicions about why he was so colorful.

    Floyd's back and forth with the other robot caught SALLI's attention, tilting her head briefly as the two seemed to insult each other...but in good humor? Hm. It was an odd exchange, but neither seemed to be upset, so she would not step in. Robots emulating organics was an interesting detail, though she found herself pondering why he'd have that. Perhaps his function was in interpersonal relations of some kind. SALLI was created to emulate as well, though not quite as perfectly as the android. For her, it was smaller things. The imitation of a blink, the fake hair that framed her face, a mouth to smile with. Even some body language! Making organics comfortable by seeming familiar was why she had been created with a humanoid form, rather than something like a ball with arms. None of those features helped her to be a better doctor, but they did wonders for bedside manner and for the comfort of a patient. What sort of job would require a robot to so effectively emulate an organic?

    "Very true." SALLI offered her fellow robot a light smile. "To be sentimental is neither logical nor necessary but... There is worth to it. A strange worth but I cannot deny the results." And the results were a very nice sort of feeling from the very sight of her succulents. Continuing to hold her gift, the robotic doctor continued to play with the plastic leaves as she listened. "Scaramouche?" A...strange designation for a robot, for sure. A quick search on the internet for the source of the name brought her to a stock clown character common in the theater. She giggled lightly, optics twinkling as she riddled it out. Of course he was great at emulating, he was an actor!

    Dr. SALLI returned the bow with a little curtsy of her coat. Well, as good a curtsy as she could perform while still seated upon Curi. "This will definitely be striking against all the paperwork!" A bit of life among all the clinical drab. A shame for the gift to be so alone though. Maybe she could work on a few more things to personalize her workspace...? Not that she knew where to begin. Perhaps Floyd would? The robot smiled at the cat woman, almost sheepish. "I definitely appreciate that this will not require much maintenance... I don't think I'd have much of a green thumb." Focusing on the purple petals, the doctor couldn't seem to wipe the grin off of her face. "I'm sure future guests to my office will be very impressed and I will be sure to let them know who is responsible for it!"

    Alas, time stopped for no one. This had been a most interesting break, but it was after all, just a break. "It was lovely to meet you all, and I will remember this gift for years to come!" Lifting up and off of Curi with a bit of help from the fluffy creature, SALLI returned the curtsy in full. Her optics shuttered in a curious blink. "Oh, you own a Tavern?" With her free hand, she continued to stroke Curiosity and let out a small chuckle at his sniffing.

    "Score!" The nurse grinned toothily. "Taverns have great alcohol in them! I could go for a nice brew... I haven't been out for a drink since I was in college!" And to think, it was their treat! "You can count on me to show u-whoa!" The Nargacuga's boop caught the man off guard, and he fell into the doctor with a squeal. Optics widened, she reached out with her free hand to catch him, and Floyd's hands grasped at her shoulders. The result saw the robot seemingly dipping the man. A dark blush came over him, his grin turning crooked as SALLI stared down at him in concern.

    "Are you alright, Nurse Floyd? You seem flushed--"

    "I'm fine! Just--out of breath! H-ha!" Getting both feet steady on the ground, Floyd pulled away from his boss and sent a small stink face to the fluffy one. Was that an accident or was he attempting to be a matchmaker? God, who knew how Scaramouche would react! Avoiding looking anyone in the face, the nurse crossed his arms. "A-as I was saying, yeah. I'd like to go to the Tavern, thank you. And uuuh...thanks for the visit! It was certainly...colorful."

    Despite Floyd's strange behavior, SALLI shrugged it off with a shrug. Holding the gift to her chest, she nodded her head to their friends. "Yes, I think I might like to see this...Tavern, some day! This gift was lovely and your visit today has been just the recharge I needed." It was a relief after a very hard couple of months.

    "As for being colorful...you're one to talk, aren'tcha? Looking like a classy clown from the 40's!"

    "Yeah, and you'd be in a monkey suit, garçon~!" Always with the damn clowns... Don't folks know the hierarchy of fools by heart anymore? Scaramouche preferred to think of himself as a buffoon, even that of a jester. Being labeled as a clown just seemed so... lowly. He sniffed, feeling a pinch insulted, and observed Floyd's uncouth gawking. "I'm as straight as an arrow." And as crooked as a dog's hind leg. Either way, the android was blatantly lying through his ceramic teeth and hoped it was painfully apparent.

    But yes! It was time to scamper off, for Dr. SALLI and her ogling underling will always be in high demand by Portal City's enfeebled populace. Though, Scaramouche would be genuinely lying if the robot said he didn't wish to chat about other things... Perhaps some other time.

    "I'm certain~!" he answered Lunette in sing-song, a bright smile on his metal face. "I'm sure they got lots of work to mow through, and you furballs wanna get outta this oppressive heat. Plus, it's lunchtime~!" Floyd certainly had the right idea. Look at him, getting excited like a kid in a candy shop at the prospect of alcohol. Getting shit-faced must be nice, considering the nurse was 24/7/365. "Hon hon~! Yeah, Lu owns a tavern. It's very comfy!" Scaramouche nodded. "Why don'tcha two swing-a-ding on by and take a load off, huh? We'll even pencil ya in for service~! Seriously, we'd love to have ya." So don't be strangers, you two! And it was going to be 'you two'. How could it not, when even Curiosity shipped it~?

    Perhaps out of mercy or a desire to savor this moment without his usual braying, the android said nothing - not even at the (expected) role reversal. Scaramouche merely watched, a delighted - "Mm~!" - escaping his throat, and kept it remarkably tame. There was no mistaking the impishness twinkling in his narrowed optics, however.

    Fluffy, you scoundrel. You clearly learned from the best~!

    'Out of breath'... What a putz!

    Ruby heels melodiously - click-a-clack'd - over to the shameless Nargacuga. "Welp~! It was fun, babes, but we better vamoose," Scaramouche piped up, resting a hand on the monster's shoulder. "Lu, wouldja care to ride Air Fluff or are ya content torturin' your lil' peets some more?" Neither of them particularly liked flying, but it sure beat walking any day of the week! It was also stylish, and who didn't appreciate a flashy entrance while making a beeline to the buffet line?
