Angel groaned and rolled over on the bed. The alarm clock made a sound that she could swear may actually be gouging her ear drums out. She moved her hand to slap the clock off when it she heard a quick jolt of sound. Her eyes opened to see her clock smoking. A sigh left her mouth and she sat up. Still in her underwear she looked over at a wind up clock she had set to the side and mentally noted to get another one with an alarm. The wind up clock was all she could keep around without its circuits frying around her.

It had been a month since the battle of Australia and Angel was finally settling down like she wanted to. The world had seen much in just a few days, many suffered and many more died. It was unlikely the world would ever forget those days, and a certainty that she would never. Her memory was still as empty as her bank account and the little apartment she was a testament to that. Waitress work and pick pocketing kept her going, and not by much. The view from the balcony window was enough.

So far her criminal activities were easily hidden. After all no one could catch her on camera, and usually a money clip or wallet was easy enough to lift. She had started dyeing her hair. Black was the only color that worked and it seemed to fade after only a couple of days. Her ears were a problem. Studying photographs of Alkanphel, and seeing Zeugma herself, she knew her ears were actually longer than the both of them. Worse still were her eyes. They were nearly impossible to hide. Even more so because a week ago she noticed they started to glow at night a light green color. She couldn’t figure it out, and worse still she had to wear sunglasses nearly all the time. And seeming randomly she would get horrible dizzy spells and had to activate her unit for a second or two to get rid of it.

But her eyesight was sharp at night. It seemed that her eyes would naturally attune themselves to the glow and made it so that the darkness she remembers seeing at night was far brighter. She could see nearly four times further than she used to in nearly complete darkness. Her ears were better too. She could hear conversations being spoken across a busy street in the middle of traffic. Sitting on her bike she could hear whispered conversations coming from a van beside her that had its windows up and the radio on. High pitched noises like the sound of a tea kettle, and a lot of different music, hurt her ears so much. The alarm clock was but a small example of it. Sometimes it seemed almost like she had to drop to her knees.

She started having even greater cravings. The taste of beef and chicken was almost disgusting to her. One night she had a big steak and nearly spent the entire night vomiting in the toilet. A salad made her convulse once. Still she drank salt water almost exclusively, except for an occasional Pepsi or other soft drink was about all her stomach could take. Milk she could barely even let settle in her stomach. She did eat a lot of beans though, and sea food was great. Clams were becoming a quick favorite. Sirloin steak was okay, but it just seemed that in any large quantity she would get sick. Potatos, shrimp, and what was becoming a staple of her cheap diet was bran flakes, no milk, with salt for seasoning.

Throwing on some clothes she ran her fingers through her hair. The effect always made it stick on its ends like a cat in the dryer. She chuckled to herself and shook her head letting the hair fall neatly. Way better than blow drying. She put two plastic clips in it to help hold her hair over her ears properly for the day and stuck on a pair of sunglasses. She grabbed a smock and walked out of the door, locking it behind her.

So far she was glad that Chronos had not found her, or the ACTF, anyone for that matter.

i doubt the ACTF want angel in the same way chronos do...ACTF proberbly want her so they can try and get her to join them against chronos and study her unit...where as chronos want to lock her up study the unit then kill her...so i suppose inna way there kinda after the same thing to a point but just using different methods

It could be that the ACTF want her for the same reason the EDF wanted her. When she first became a guyver the EDF took a blood sample from her and wanted to reproduce her electromagnetic absorbing abilities into their armors. Imagine what else they would be able to obtain from such a being who has yet to complete her evolution. Chronos may not know about that but they probably know that she is similar to Sedah in many ways and for that reason they want her too, she may hold secrets that even Sedah may not know or able to access.

Probably powerful enough to handle nearly any enemy that would come her way. She can already take out nearly all the current activated units easily and her unit feeds her such information as well. Already she is comparable to Dreadnought and her unit has yet to adapt to her changing human body and modify itself at the same time. From the current changes that are taking place i'd say she's probably being transformed into the ultimate human host...even more advanced that Alkanphel and the Acear cast warrior in order for her body to handle the extra power that her guyver unit has yet to achieve. Sedah would more than likely be going through the same changes. Chronos would have more than just a small interest in her.

Another nice preview Allen. Seems angel is becoming less and less human, its interesting how its effecting things such as her sense of taste. I wonder what other changes will happen to her down the line, also should be good once her and sedah run into each other, heres hoping for one good old scrap
