Without giving Steve and Ziperator enough time to recuperate, Seiki and Ahio appeared in front of them.
"Meteo," Seiki activated immediately. Ahio revealed her hidden limbs so she could grab Ziperator. A dark green aura surrounded him and Steve. They were now being subjected to the amount of G-forces that would've affected Seiki and Ahio up until this point. Considering that Ahio was traveling at speeds that can break the space-time continuum, she could easily kill someone with this ability. That's why Steve and Ziperator could only handle this ability in miliseconds, or else they would've died in no time at all.
They passed out from the ordeal. Unfortunately, the Maverick and the unknown parasite were still alive. Hopefully, these two can be used as a way of understanding more about the parasite.
"Whew... We won... Oh no, I should've waited a minute to say that. He'll get back up somehow," Ahio quickly retracted.
"...Should we destroy these...whatever they are, or wait for someone to study these...?" Seiki contemplated.
"The latter option sounds more responsible, but it's more dangerous if the ones studying them have evil intentions. Just like that Army general that everyone has been complaining about," Ahio spoke up. "Then, if we destroy them now, it'll delay someone stopping these things for good."
"Guess I'll call Montai to see what she thinks. She's the most trustworthy person in the federal government right now," Seiki thought.

Andrew appeared on scene along with the same FBI special agent that responded to the Noland vs Mother Bowen scene: Clarence. Clarence was ecstatic to see what he was seeing. He almost couldn't believe that there was someone willingly handing him valuable information like the Resistors were.
"My bosses should've let me get in contact with the Resistors a long time ago. I knew you CIA guys were up to something when ya'll did it. This is gold right here," he commented on Steve and Ziperator's bodies.
"Remember what I said, alright? You can't tell too many people we're doing this," Andrew warned him.
"Yeah, yeah. I know. People can't be trusted. I got this one." Clarence took out a Ventus Bakugan orb. Without it opening in monster form, a jar materialized above Steve and Ziperator. The Maverick virus and the unknown parasite were suctioned into the jar. The jar sealed itself and faded away.
"I mean it now... I don't want you dying on me..." Andrew stressed.
"I know... I'm fine. Really," Clarence quickly assured him. "Anyway, I appreciate this fine service, Miss. We're going to keep what I got here between us for the time being. I'll let you and the crew know what this thing is once I get this to the right people. Don't tell those damn cops a thing though. In fact, don't tell ANYONE I have this."

Andrew cleared his throat to get Clarence to leave. "Yeah, I should probably leave," he agreed. He took out his badge and pointed it at Ziperator. A golden light came out of the badge that shined on Ziperator. This returned the Bakugan to ball form. Clarence confiscated him and cuffed Steve before taking his leave.
"We'll be in touch," Clarence assured them all. He vacated the episode by taking Steve through the woods in the direction of the neighborhood that was not too far behind the Evangel Cathedral. He wanted to make sure that the media didn't have anything to do with him for a little bit.
Andrew took a long, deep breath. He had no idea how this was going to go. All he could do was hope and pray. "We either just added yet another detail to this assignment, or got this FBI's field office infected..." he pondered. "Ah well. I shouldn't be too negative. This is good work. No injuries or anything concerning?"
"He didn't hit us at all..." Seiki said with some surprise. It sounded like she was expecting more of a challenge.
"Now that I'm strong and all - at least other people say so - I'm starting to see why some of these Bakugan walk around with their chest out and their mouths flapping all the time. It feels GREAT!" Ahio celebrated. "Steve totally looked like a selfish weakling out there."
"...I don't think he asked for that last part...even though you're right..." Seiki admitted. "I'm more worried about you though. That was a really bad hit..."

Andrew chuckled a little under his breath. It was relaxing to see everyone worried about him. He works in the shadows so much that he almost forgot how it feels when people do recognize his activity.
"I'll be fine. It'll take some time before I'm 100%, but I'm going to live. That's good enough for me," Andrew believed. "Anyway, now that you're here, I should ask you this. You remember those punks that tried to kidnap you when Markus and Tank were in jail? Did you see any of them again?"
"I haven't, but Ahio has," Seiki redirected. "She went out of her way to mess with them before they could come after me again. She either hangs them from a tree swarming with Bee Striker or haul them off to jail before they realize what happened."
"I was laughing all week about that," Ahio remembered. "Not as funny anymore. I need to try something different."
"They kept telling me that I'd better hand Maurice over or else. Not sure why they go after me when I don't even talk to the guy..."

"Nearest person, or easiest one to control if they think you're weak," Andrew guessed.
"Rude," Ahio briefly criticized.
"It's a good thing that you're getting these guys off the street, but it's probably not going to stay that way. As hard as it is to believe, we can't just throw those heathens in a cage and leave them there. There are processes involved. They'll probably be set free if the cops don't have a case against them," Andrew warned. "You don't have to concern yourself with that. Just thought I'd let you know since they'll mess with you again.
"Anyway, with that mouthful out of the way, I got to say. This is getting a bit too easy for you. Let's lighten the mood a little bit. You up for a battle?"

"You should be happy, Ahio. I'd rather you not wait for a dangerous situation for you to get challenged. Well, not again anyway. The Father Lyles battle was a surprise. I'm just making sure you'll be safe out here," Andrew made known.
"Nope," Andrew quickly denied. "You need to fight a Resistor. While Kendrick considers himself one, he doesn't count, so any of the other six will do. Make sure you have the fight recorded so you can review it, alright?"
"...Hai," Seiki nervously acknowledged. This was very different from training with someone as strong as Noland. She has to actually fight one of them. The idea of that wouldn't be so bad if she couldn't comprehend what they were packing, but she could...
She returned to her place to clean herself up after the battle. While she was looking at herself in the mirror, she pondered over who she was going to challenge. It was surprisingly difficult to decide.
"...I can't bother Markus and Tank right now... They're with their teams right now... They'd be perfect since they know their way around a fight... So does everyone else... I should try someone different this time. After all, I haven't faced any primarily defensive brawlers yet. I've only been picking people apart when they came for me... Father Lyles defended himself really well against my attacks, so maybe that's something I need to work on..."
This sound thinking narrowed down her choice to two people: Tracy and Allen. "Hm..."

Tracy was at Markus' house getting some work done. She had the TV on watching what just went down with Seiki vs Steve.
"We have an update on the situation that took place in Prince George's County, Maryland. A young man who we now believe to be Legion's hype-man, Steve, was seen attacking a Resistor with a lot of onlookers in harms way. The fight started at the graveyard behind Evangel Cathedral and spilled onto the sidewalk where it was swiftly ended by Ventus Resistor Seiki Maki. Authorities have taken him into custody, but there has been no word about any charges. In fact...authorities are refusing to share any information."
"This investigation is a lot more complicated than it looks. Yes, someone has used their Bakugan to potentially cause grievous harm to others, but there are certain details we've noticed that cannot go public at this time," an officer told reporters. "I kindly ask you all to be patient with us during this process. Once the investigation is concluded or goes far enough, we will be ready to share information about the situation."
"Sure you will," Tracy scoffed. She got up to get herself a drink from Markus' fridge. Before she could make it there, someone was starting to phase through the door. Pure instinct took over at that point. Her pupils turned purple. She reached for a knife and threw it towards the door.
Seiki wasn't expecting to potentially have a knife lodged in her throat. Despite the fact that Ahio gave her speed to phase through the door, she was caught off-guard by this. If it wasn't for Ahio's quick thinking to blow the knife away just enough for it to not kill someone, she'd be asking Genesis Dragonoid for a second chance.
"..." Seiki gave Tracy the 'what the fuck' look. Ahio was more vocal about that.
"Did you and Markus get in an argument or something!? That could've been him for all you know! You could've killed us. Well, you could've killed her!" Ahio screeched.

"Oh no...I'm so sorry!" Tracy quickly apologized. The dark color in her eyes disappeared when she reassessed the situation. "I'm really not use to people just coming in unannounced, even though I knew it was you because of our link. I just assume it's someone dangerous..."
"So...you knew it was us, and you threw the knife anyway...?" Ahio summed up.
"Between you and I, Markus has some crazy people in his fanbase. He was even swatted before. I have no idea if someone is spoofing your energy signature. I don't just assume anything anymore."
"So...moving that aside...what's up? You feeling okay after what you did?"
"Mhm. I'm more curious than anything. I'm wondering if the falling out with him and Tank happened because of what he had, or if he did it before he got infected. I'm hoping I'm not around them when the truth finally comes out though. But...that's not why I'm here."
"...If you're not busy with anything, I'd like to battle you. I want to see how far I've come. You know, just in case I'm by myself whenever one of those guys attacks us again..."
Atom: Yeah, no. The value of the materials within that device were worth less than $100. The specifics of it are more difficult, but the overall material cost isn't any more than that.

Merchant: Merchant: Tell that to quantum flux anchor, and anti-magic adamantine. The later being really hard to get.
Jun 7, 2020 15:40:54 GMT -5
Atom: Anti-magic Adamantine is quite plentiful in other Realities. Too bad you can't go to them. As for the Quantum Flux Anchor, never heard of something like that before.

Merchant: You use them to locked down teleports of any kind. Traps them in a single space. Why am I telling you that. You still ow me money. *He reaches for Atom full of ill intent.*
Jun 7, 2020 15:46:35 GMT -5
Atom: And, no. You are not getting any money from me. *I step away, making it harder for you to reach me.* It's your own fault for going after Grimm in the first place. Good research will save you money in the long run.
