It has been a few days since their last contact, but no more than a week. Neon has called KC, informing he had some findings and needed to further discuss with her in person, getting directions to her place as well. From his tone, it were really good news he had to share and likely he wanted to witness how joyful she'd be. And at the right time of the day after, Neon was by the door of where KC lived.

"Kassie, I have arrived. Hope you aren't too busy.", he called out, hoping that she was indeed not busy at all, dressed himself in a rather casual manner with a black shirt featuring green glowing patterns with a variety of animals depicted, dark blue pants and black shoes.

KC had been pretty busy, to ask her about it. She had finally gotten her tiny apartment just how she wanted it, and it was time to let Hadley come see it. Once he got off from work, of course. She'd spared only some expense: a mid-range bottle of bourbon for him and some extra nice sparkling water for her, a playlist of her favorite music, and new sheets on the bed. All in all, a good enough set up for what she hoped was a nice christening party of her new living space.

And then Neon had called, sending her into a bit of a mixed bag of emotions. On the one hand, she was irritated that he was bothering her just as she was putting on those finishing touches. On the other, by the tone of his voice he had some good news for her.

She was not nearly as dressed up as he was when she answered the door: wearing only yoga pants and a sports bra, with her hair pulled back into a messy, wild bun. Her mismatched eyes scanned him as she leaned on the door frame, sucking in her bottom lip to hide the worst of her grin.

"You look like you ripped that shirt off the floor of a bowling alley. Come on in, I guess."

Neon chortled at her comment on his style, his tail waving back and forth as he'd follow KC in. "You know, Kassie, I thought I looked more like a neon sign of a park-side hotel.", he'd humor the thought somewhat, "Kassie, just finished up checking the code you gave me, and got some real good news: There's a wireless frequency and a code in it that we could possibly use with a modified Wi-Fi router to hack into them."

"That too, I guess. Either way, you look like a nerd."

Once they were inside, KC fell forward over the arm of her couch, simultaneously bending over and seemingly unwittingly giving Neon a good view of her from the side while she listened to what he had to say. Her tail swayed back and forth, ears twitching a bit as she thought about the implications of what he had apparently figured out.

"How will that affect me? The tank is supposed to, ya know, keep my vitals stable while it works on the nanites. Keep them from liquifying me in the process. If I turn to jelly, that'll be on you."

Neon rubbed his chin thoughtfully, "Yes, that tank would be a really nice piece to have... Without it, the only ideas I have is to have you conscious and telling me how you feel, and attempt to put the nanites into "Sleep Mode" to safely inject the update. It's risky, but with the codes you gave me the risks have had a considerable decrease...", he replied, his tail swaying slower, in calm movements, "Preparing the Wi-Fi routers should take a few minutes, easy stuff to tamper with. I can just buy a couple of those, configure them proper, mod with the Digital Silk, and they'll be good to go. Next would be the "when" and "whether or not we'll have a way to obtain that tank"."

"If we're waiting on the tank, then I don't even need you. I know the programming language myself and the tank can be hooked into almost any computer," KC said in a very dry, matter-of-fact way as she stretched and then bunched up on the couch, her tail waving lazily in the air.

"Buuuuuuut, I also won't have that kind of money for a really long time, with the way things are going. The day you ambushed me on the station, I was going to sneak into one of the shops and set myself up to at least get one of my upgrades overnight while the store was empty. So, ya know, waiting isn't really ideal for me."

"I take it you mean to say "Go for it then, but make it quick"?", Neon hummed softly, "And with the data you provided me I could always look into ways to streamline future developments. Depending on the direction my own nature continues to grow, it could even affect me.". It was a huge stretch, really, but one he felt like considering.

"I don't know what the fuck that means," KC said flatly, sighing as she sat up and rubbed her temple. "You did this last time, you know? I was having a crisis and you decided you wanted to tell me about how you have a kid-"

She huffed and stood up, sauntering into the kitchen that was attached to her living room so that she could get herself a cup of water. Along the way she muttered under her breath, "It's not worth it."

"Either way," she continued after she'd finished a long sip of water, "I'd prefer it to be quick, yeah. Rip the band-aid off and not die horribly in the process. But if you're so worried about it affecting you, you're welcome to dip now and I can find someone else. I don't need anybody pussing out on me, especially when it's my fine ass on the line."

"Hm? Oh, I should have been specific, I mean in that I might be able to wind up with a change in my own data structure. Nothing that makes me afraid, really.", his eyes were wide open with slit pupils and his fangs showing a little over his lower lips in a cat-like expression, but soon he returned to a normal expression, "All fine then, I'll be getting to the store then to get those routers. If you feel like doing any sort of preparation for yourself, go ahead."

Neon got up from his seat and looked KC in the eyes. His tail swaying excitedly, although his face was still serious. He really liked how different this KC was from the one he met in the past, and how she changed from when they first met here. "See you in a few.", and soon he would remove himself from her residence to go get the things they needed.

There would be numerous minutes, until he were to return...

KC practically deflated when he left. She took the opportunity of being alone to throw her clothes off and get a shower, both to unwind before whatever Neon had planned and to get clean in case he needed to cut her open or anything. She didn't know what exactly he was going to do, but she wanted to be ready for anything.

She was still blow drying her hair when he arrived; using a gentle setting kept her hair from frying. She had to keep her good looks up for Hadley, lest he get bored with her. KC opened the door unceremoniously, still wrapped in a towel as she let Neon back inside. She didn't even seem to notice her own state as she made her way back through the house to get some of the food that she had. "That was quicker than I thought it would be. I almost wondered if you'd had second thoughts and decided to skip on me. You want anything to eat? I've got crab cakes - baked, not fried. And a couple different kinds of cheese. Sorry but limited diet, ya know? Can't have anything a cat can't."
