Tarnished walked through the hospital, hauling a few clipboards and dropping it off at different stands. She then walked by one of the nurses, gossiping for a few minutes with her, before taking a few forms, then delivering those. After that she had to deliver some meals and...

Basically, she was doing a LOT of busy body work. However, once she was FINALLY done there was... something... special she wanted to do. Really badly. Something she'd wanted to do all day.

Which was why she was standing outside Takashi Agera's room. She gulped nervously, before reaching out to knock then, as all medical personnel did, opened the door anyway and just walked in. "Agera-sama?" she asked.

There were two Takashi in the room; one in the bed, and one at the desk. The one in the bed was dead still, only breathing under the blankets. The one sitting at the desk, though, was a Dark Energy projection and was looking over three laptops - turning around in the spinning chair to regard to the newcomer.

He pointed at her, snapping his finger. "Oh! You're the girl... the chemist..." He'd been so busy, the name didn't come to his mind.

"Anyways, why are you barging in here?"

Tarnished nodded. "Tarnished," she said, staring at him. It felt... Odd. She cocked her head to the side. "That's... an interesting trick you have there. Do I talk to you, or the... golem? Fake? Ghost? IT's an interesting trick," she said as she walked over, bowing politely.

"I... wanted to talk with you. Or... rather thank you. I know you're a very busy man but... Your research here. It saved my life..." Amongst others. "So... I felt it was only polite to thank you for it. Even if unintentional," she mumbled. Her eyes finally decided to focus on the one in bed, focusing on him. That was the one that felt... alive.

"Projection." Takashi explained. "My Linker Core ended up disconnected from my body due to... mmm... an... experiment went and had interesting reactions. It should resolve itself shortly, but I can't just lie here waiting, so I've created this projection so I can continue to interact in the physical world. Probably easier to just to talk to it. But I'm not picky.."

The projection smiled. "I'm glad to know we're succeeding. One of the reasons I created this side project is to show the value of Dark Energy for things other than creation - to have a place to show the energy I'm made up for can be used positively. It is good to hear it is already doing so well..."

Tarnished nodded. "I... assume linker core is something important?" she asked, staring at him. She honestly was still new to this whole magic thing. It all seemed very... strange. "Some part of the source of your power? And I'll need to look into such a thing for myself. Being able to work while I slept would be nice. Though... I don't know if I have a linker core. So maybe not," she said before nodding.

"Yes. To be fair, it was my own fault I needed to use it at all. I... didn't quite understand dark energy like I do now. But I can say without a doubt that this research has already saved my life. Even if the side effects are... quite strong at times."
Takashi Agera 2018-09-01 04:53:34 96744
The projection of Takashi nodded. "You can think of them somewhat like souls - for those of us with this style of magic. You likely have one too - it probably beats with dark power at least similarly to mine..."

"I've never been without it, but I know someone for whom it's a relatively new acquirement too. I can say it beats not having it... at least in my opinion. Others might disagree."
Masu Yogoshi 2018-09-01 04:59:18 96745
Tarnished nodded. "I'll need to study it. Being able to study my soul, even if it was a different type of one, could give me a lot of insight as to how dark energy effects my body. And how to better manage and use it. Perhaps I could even look into-- err, my apologies." She bowed politely one more time.

"I appreciate all you have done for me, even if it wasn't directed at me. Thank you, and I hope we can work together in the future. It was a pleasure to meet you, Agera-sama," she said before heading towards the door.

Takashi regards Tarnished, for a moment, with his projection. "I've been hearing things about you that make me think that I'll be seeing you again soon - good things, mind. Hopefully when there's only one of me to interact with..."
