"Cool!" Jake pushed past Daniel making her sequel as he approached their discovery. "Think we can charge our phones on this thing?"
"Are you nuts?" Daniel rushed over behind Jake but was relieved he made no moves for any buttons. "This thing could melt us with acid grenades for all we know."
ACID SPRAY FUNCTION NOT INSTALLED!
Daniel and Jake stared at each other blankly. Their stunned silence drew attention to how the beeping had stopped with the shrill computer screaming.
"Okay. Cool. It talks too." While not backing off, Jake did not look keen to get closer too. What do you think it's for?"
REPAIR AND RESTART FUNCTIONS READY! PLEASE INITIATE SEQUENCE!
"Welp!" Daniel threw her hands up while her ears dropped. "You heard the ominous screaming box. Let's go tell the others about it and-HEY!?"
Much as Daniel would have loved to listen to her animal flight instincts her digivice had other needs. No sooner had she turned to the exit than the hand holding the little toy was yanked back towards the machine with the force of a magnet. She was once again glad for the thick tail helping to keep enough balance to prevent crashing over everything.
Jake was so supportive trying not to laugh at her near pratfall. "Don't think it wants you to go, babe."
"Brilliant observation, Jake." Daniel rolled her eyes and barely resisted the urge to run anyway. The pull was not so strong as to keep her in place by her digivice. However, curiosity was bound to claim another cat, or Renamon today. "Anything in furry fandom that gives you an idea of what this wants with me?"
ILLEGAL INSTALLATION DETECTED! PLEASE INSERT DIGIVICE FOR REPAIRS!
"Apparently you're broken?" Jake shrugged at the look Daniel gave him. "I guess? For all, I know this could give you enormous boobs or make you thirty feet tall."
"That explains so much, actually," Daniel said with only half sarcasm. The machines response was pretty vague, but its word choice left her with hopeful interpretations. "And my boobs are already too small. You...machine thing! What do you mean by repairs?"
FEMININE DIGITIZATION DEVICE HAS RECENTLY PERFORMED AN INCOMPATIBLE AND ILLEGAL INSTALLATION! RESTORATION AND REBOOT ARE REQUIRED TO MAXIMIZE FUNCTIONALITY!
