~Cytek HQ, Lower Floors~
While the procedure of thinning the air took a while, the effect were quite immediate. At first they could hear of grunts and exclamations from around the corner, followed by gasping and wheezing, finally ending with the bumps of the bodies hitting the floor. Gecko stared with eyes wide at Joseph, while pressing the rebreather close to her face.
"I'd heard about your powers..." she spoke hesitantly. "But they're really something, aren't they?"
She took a look through the wall again, and then lead the little group around the corner. At the end of the corridor, beyond the unconscious guards, were an elevator, and Gecko promptly pressed the button for the lowest floor after they had all entered, and it quickly closed the doors, whirred and propelled downwards.
"Well, so far so good, right?" she said, trying to sound optimistic, despite the significant amount of trouble they had already had. Right as finished uttering those words, the elevator doors opened again.
"You are en-tering a restric-ted area. Please iden-tify yourself." an obviously synthesised voice commanded, originating from a hovering, circular robot only a few feet away. It shot a blue light towards them, already searching for their eyes. A little further away, mounted to the ceiling, a rather nasty looking automated turret could be seen.
"Gotta stop jinxing..." Gecko could be heard muttering in the back.
