Description: From the Fort Knox thread ^^

Beep... Beep... Wait... why was there beeping. Her head ached and she wasn't fully sure why... what all had happened. Well... What she remembered was breaking into the Fed. Reserve, then finding out the place was already being broken into by a berserker... a guy had followed her in then left... and a trigger happy cop who had grabbed her when she had tried to attack the berserker... What happened after that? She wasn't sure, She shifted groaning softly before sitting up not even oppening her eyes untill her head settled from the movment. Gold orbs flickered open and cat ears twitched as she looked around
"High tech... were the hell am I?" she murmured this certainly didn't look like a place were she would just curl up and sleep. Her tail flicked behind her before settling around her waist like a belt
"Hello? Any one around?" she murmured swinging her legs off the bed and feeling the cold floor through her stockings, her shoes were set neatly next to the bed her lace coat folded neatly on a bed side table
"Ok weird... What is going on here."

"Ok weird... What is going on here."
"Sick people are being healed," John Raymond spoke as he stepped in to the room. During the federal reserve bank incident, he was wearing a standard issue SHIELD uniform but now he had traded it for a white doctors coat.
"You got on the wrong side of Omega Red and took a hit," John started as he sat the medical bag he was holding down and opened it. He looked through the items until he found a flashlight. "I tried to hold you back but you got loose. Omega Red can't be hurt by conventional means. His armor and tentacles are made of adamantium, a nearly indestructible steel alloy".
He laughed a little, "Where are my manners? My name is Captain Dr. John Raymond, SHIELD MTF Field Commander, 2nd Company. You are in the SHIELD HQ medical facility. Now please sit down so I can make sure your in good enough condition to move around".

She frowned turning her attention to the man
"Is that what happened.. I can't remeber.. Though I do remeber you grabbing me, jeeze ruff house a lady why don't you..." she was about to demand who he was and where she was when he answered the questions with out prompt.
"Shield? you mean the thing knights carry around? Sorry... But you've compleatly lost me..." she said Adamateum? she'd never herd of it, then something occured to her, her pouches were gone,
"My gold... Were is it?" she said mild panik touching her voice at the thought that it was gone, out of her reach.
John Raymond - July 9, 2007 03:57 AM (GMT)
jeeze ruff house a lady why don't you..."
“If that’s what it takes to save her life,” John responded with a smirk and rubbed the girls head like she was a little kid.
"Shield? you mean the thing knights carry around? Sorry... But you've compleatly lost me
“It’s the initials for something but what it stands for changes like every other issue so I don’t know what it stands for right now”.
"My gold... Were is it?"
“Women always did love things that shine,” John joked sarcastically. “On the shelve to your right, second one from the bottom I think”.
Gold - July 9, 2007 04:01 AM (GMT)
She moved with feline speed her body straching in an odd way tha she didn't even notice as she turned back to were her spoke finding the pouches with the gold with in, and pullin it off the shelf she opened a pouch and held one of the golden orbs in her palm calming instanly, a soft purr escaped her as her tail swayed gently over the edge of the bed
"It has nothing to do with being a woman, the gold is the only thing I have... a beloved partner if you will, it'll never leave me or use me." she said before her eyes flicked up to gaze at him
"Why am I here and not in a hospital in jail?"
John Raymond - July 10, 2007 01:39 AM (GMT)
"Why am I here and not in a hospital in jail?"
John used his doctor’s flashlight to check the girl’s eyes, making sure there was no hemorrhaging or odd pupil dilation because both were good signs of a concussion. He concluded that the girl was fine and then put his flashlight down before he answered.
He sat on the bed next to the girl and began to speak. “You are not in prison because we at the MTF are looking for mutants with certain skills that you seem to possess. You are useful to us. This gives us two options that we could look into. The first option is that you join SHIELD, become an agent and all you’re criminal deeds will be forgiven, forgotten and your criminal record will disappear”.
That offer sounded quite good coming from Dr. Raymond however his voice soon changed as he mentioned the second option.
“Your second choice is that you could be used as an experimental lab rat in a secret facility on an island off of Scotland where you will have humiliating life and will unable to act on your own freewill. This option is absolute torture.
Facedancer - July 10, 2007 05:34 PM (GMT)
Facedancer didn't often come down to the Medical area, and he didn't really enjoy the idea of doing it now. But after the mess that had been the Federal Reserve job, he felt that he needed to do it, just lend some modicum of control to the entire botched situation. Hearing Raymond's voice, he smiled, leaning against the doorframe. The man had an excellent bedside manner, and was even a good agent.
He said nothing, waiting for something to say that wouldn't set the girl more ill-at-ease than he figured she already was. He knew what she meant about needing a center, something that wouldn't desert her. He had found some of that in SHIELD. Would she? That question was up in the air.
The discussion of Muir Island brought a sharp hiss from Edwin to his old student. The very idea that someone would be subjected to that or would be threatened with it upset him greatly, and he didn't care now if Raymond turned to see the scowl on his old teacher's face.
Gold - July 10, 2007 07:10 PM (GMT)
"Don't think you can threaten me buddy... those word are empty I can't... woun't be tied down for experimentation, I have an image to maintaine as if I'd ever allow such a thing." she said firmly but his other option... join this orginization... all her past indicrestin would be wiped clean.
"Give me one good reason why your offering me this." she said, granted she had skill but how did her skills benifit this oginization? she was intrested to say the least, her ears twitched at the his and the gold orb became a dager and she took a defesiv position
John Raymond - July 10, 2007 10:38 PM (GMT)
“You talk as if we’d give you a choice for that. Somepeople high, above me don’t care about your image or what you allow. Me, I can give you a chance to earn a few bucks, put your skills to work and clear your name”.
“I can give you several reasons why I am offering you this. First, some dude behind a desk that carries a higher rank, even thou he is as dumb as a rock, told me to offer it to you. The next few reasons are a little bit more valid thou. Your work at the Reserve Bank was admirable, had things gone as planned you would have easily gotten in, stole stuff and gotten out. Had it not been for Omega Red and the others, you wouldn’t have been caught”.
He cleared his throat, “You are cunning, sneaky, and skilled. That’s why I am offering this opportunity to you”.
“That,” he spoke looking back, “That is Captain Goldman, leader of one of the other teams assigned to the MTF”.
Gold - July 11, 2007 05:12 PM (GMT)
"Oh yah? They don't care, thats good I'd be a little worried if people I didn't know knew me like that, I mean that I wouldn't let you guys ever use me as a test subgect, I'd sooner slice you all to ribbions... this proposal of yours dose have my intrest..." she said her tal flicking from side to said as she watched the man carefully.
Se smiled slightly at his words
"Well of course I would have, I'm not a master theif for nothing, all that planning, and that berserker ruined it for me... I'm really irritated..." well if you think I'll do you orginization some good... a clear record would be in my favor... Fine, I guess I'll join as long as I can keep the gold and stuff that is in my possession up to this point." she said evenly. before casting a glance at the other man when he question about him was answered
"Team leaders... teams... yuck, DOn't you guys allow solo agents?' she asked evenly.
Facedancer - July 12, 2007 10:42 AM (GMT)
Edwin looked at her: "You may refer to me as the Facedancer. That's all you need to know about me, except that even if you were to try and 'slice' me, it wouldn't work. Now, as far as solo agents, there are a very small number of them. But not in the MTF. Not yet. And by the way, just so you're aware, it was me that heard Omega Red and all the noise there. There would have been a much smaller number of people involved if it hadn't been for me."
He folded his arms over his chest, looking her over. Something about this thief set him ill-at-ease. Facedancer was determined to make sure she followed through on her word. And that would be by any means necessary. Though, the suggestion of Muir Island was not something Edwin would allow to go freely either. He was sure that he and Raymond would be having words over that, later on. But right now, the girl needed to be managed.
He was suddenly very tired of being the oldest member of the MTF at the ripe old age of 35. Raymond was 29, Stagg was 27, Trask was 21 (though somehow he acted younger at times...it seemed odd to the teacher, that the man seemed more like a high-school student than anything else). And that was just the commanding officers! As for the others, Russo, 22; Freedman, 24; Revolver, 25; Pryor, also 21. Yet, something seemed odd about her too, especially the surveillance on someone as capable as she'd proven herself to be. To be honest, if Facedancer had a say, he'd let Pryor off the leash and keep an eye on Gold, this child who Raymond wanted in the MTF, probably on his team. But it wasn't up to him, was it?
And yet...Raymond looked up to him. He was a former X-Man and a teacher. He had become an Agent of SHIELD at the personal request of Nick Fury. So, the question remained of what he should do now. He decided on a course of action.
He glanced at the girl: "Just stay within the rules and we'll all be fine, miss. Mr. Raymond, I'll need to speak with you at some point, soon."
Gold - July 12, 2007 03:03 PM (GMT)
"Fine fine, Jeeze you act like I'll torch the place first chance I can't, hey if working for you guys means a stabel pay check and place to sleep were I don't have to worry about getting jumped all power to the place." she sai evenly shrugging, he didn't trust her, it was cute, her eyes twitched golden eyes falling on the elder man before she sighed and fell back on the bed frowning
"Look I'm just not used to any hospitality my worlds been cat eat cat for a long time, You can't blame me for being a little weary of the situation." she explained evenly. She frowned at the ceiling, to be honest part of her didn't like being here, the it was mostly the sterile enviroment, probably because she was in a medical bay but still...
"By the way the names not miss, It's gold, Miss is for some one comleatly diffrent." she said firmly.
Facedancer - July 13, 2007 12:31 AM (GMT)
Edwin looked at the girl, his lips thinning to a hard line and his eyes narrowing slightly. He didn't understand what set him off about this one, but something did, there was no doubt about that.
"Indeed. So I'd gathered, Gold."
Gold - July 14, 2007 01:11 PM (GMT)
Gold smiled sitting up
"There se not so hard, thank you Mr. Goldmen." she said brightly her left ear twitching slightly and she she sighed
"SO is there a bunch of peaper work or tests I need to fill out or is it one of those, 'poof your in' sort of things?" she asked evenly lookeing from one man to the other.
Shred - July 14, 2007 02:26 PM (GMT)
"SO is there a bunch of peaper work or tests I need to fill out or is it one of those, 'poof your in' sort of things?"
"You, have to go through the reguar medical exams and crap," John answered with a smile".
OCC: Sorry, writer's block.
Gold - July 14, 2007 02:29 PM (GMT)
"Medical exams?" she asked with distaste, she hated docters they always poked and prodded
"I guess if I have to but do you have any femal doctors? Guys are just really awkward for me..." she said frowning, well in all honesty any stanger examining her wa sbut she would prefer, if it had to be done, a female to a male, at least she could garantee a female was mentaly undressing her or anything creepy like that.
John Raymond - July 15, 2007 08:47 PM (GMT)
“Of course we do, we have had them since the equal opportunity act,” John joked as he began to walk out of the room. “When you have all your exams and stuff done, you can find me in my office which doubles as my dorm room”.
John looked at Facedancer, “You want to have that talk, I have time”.
