[It looks like Adam has taken one of the mopeds to pieces. There are engine bits carefully arranged around him, his hands still have traces of grease on them, and there are tools nearby. He generally doesn't use the network much, but - this seemed relevant.]

I guess these are the vehicles we were promised. They seem all right - probably won't go more than 25, but it's not like there's a real need for speed here. They run pretty well, though they're electric, so they'll need charging. And they're not too complicated, so if something breaks it should be easy to fix - I'd be fine showing anyone who wants to learn.

[He pauses for a moment, shrugs.]

Or doing it for you, I guess. But there's some... weird stuff.

[Adam picks up the carburetor, unscrews part of the covering, and pulls it off. Rather than what would be expected to be inside - normal moped parts, necessary to running it - out pops a spring-loaded, fake-looking snake, like something you'd hide in a can for a shitty prank.

Expecting this, Adam does not seem surprised, only vaguely tired and maybe a tiny bit amused.]


All the ones I looked at have something like this. They run fine, though.

[And, totally deadpan, as a service to those who might be unfamiliar with this kind of thing:]

They really shouldn't.

[Well, Nick is certainly intrigued by this.]

So ... you're a mechanic?

That's pretty cool. My dad was a mechanic. I worked in the shop when I was in high school - office stuff, mostly, but my uncle did teach me how to change the oil for my truck. I'm guessing these things ain't anything like my truck, though.

[There were certainly no fake snake parts in her truck, last she checked.]
bekommen: (i get a funny feeling sometimes)

[Yeah, she remembers the dream - something in her expression darkens when her memory calls up what she'd witnessed of Adam's father.]

Well, it's good to know how to fix stuff like that, anyway. You can pretty much get a job anywhere as a mechanic. Hey, maybe if it's not too hard, you could show me? Not like I really plan on driving one of those things around, I just could prob'ly use something to take my mind off - y'know, everything.

[Everything like one of her few friends disappearing a few days ago.]
