“Huh,” Cyrus mumbled with mild surprise etching his tone. The Lightening Saix continued to trot quickly towards the source of the radar ping. “The source vanished…Saix head towards the last known location, would ya?” With a cat like growl the Zoid acknowledged the order. The speed increased as Cyrus looked out his window. It couldn’t have gone far…
“Hey buddy,” Cyrus said pulling a keyboard out from the side console and rapidly tapping away upon the keys. “I think I have an idea,” Cyrus mumbled. “Let’s check to see if we can find any footprints of our little friend. Scan the terrain for depressions in the ground.”
There was a brief moment before the Saix sent back a reading. “Hmm, could be in or out for all I know. But it’s a good source of direction. Keep wide of any rocks or forests; let’s stay in the open for now. I don’t want us to run right past it and let it get the jump on us. While we’re at it, let’s load a couple grenades into RPG launcher.”
Another throaty growl was all Cyrus needed to hear to grin as he prepared to hunt down whoever this stealthy warrior was. With a final toggle being turned, the Lightening Saix target jammer turned on, creating a ghost image that was five meters off the hull of his Zoid.
“Hey now,” Cyrus said to the open frequency. “Why don’t you come out and play?”
