[Combat over.]

IDW: Oh! Safe at last!

Thank you so much, Master of someone else!

M16A1: Commander, this is the last batch, right?

AR-15: The meeting’s been cancelled. Can’t we go home yet?

M4A1: HQ is still screening for the automaton suspected of leaking information, so all of us have to be on stand-by.

M4 SOPMOD II: Seriously! We’re automatons! As if we’d tell the enemy our secrets!

M4A1: It is an order. Just put up with it for a while.


AR-15: What a drag. I’m taking a break. They didn’t say we have to standby right here.

M4A1: …

Commander, AR-15…

Helian: A moment, please.

AR-15: …

Helian: I have a very important announcement to make.

After the screening procedure, we have discovered an automaton that has been processing an abnormal amount of information.

The automaton is, in fact, a member of the AR Team.

AR Team: …!

Helian: Tactical Automaton AR-15 of the AR Team, when scanning our database, we found a substantial anomaly in the server traffic you generated while uploading information.

We are shutting down your communications module. Security officers will now escort you to the confinement room for further screening.

[…]

AR-15: You mean…me…?

M16A1: What…

M4 SOPMOD II: This can’t be! There must be some mistake!

AR-15: Pipe down, SOP-II. You’re just an automaton.

We can’t disobey orders no matter how loud you yap.

M4 SOPMOD II: But…

AR-15: It’s just a screening. They’re not saying I’m the culprit for sure. Focus on doing your job first.

M4A1: AR-15, we believe you…

AR-15: …

I know. Don’t mess up the mission before I come back.

[…AR-15 leaves in Helian’s wake.]

M4 SOPMOD II: AR-15…

M16A1: Stop worrying about it. It doesn’t help the situation. We still have things to do.

C’mon. AR-15 won’t want us to be so worried.

M4A1: …

How can this be…?
