[Doorbell]

Joe

So, you're here?

Xenon

Yeah.
[Glass Sliding]

Joe

Have a few drinks with me, will ya? I need to work myself up before I can talk.

Xenon

Sure.

Joe

... I thought you would want me to cut to the chase immediately.

Xenon

Nothing wrong with a quick chat. It has been a while since we last did this; Just us two, having a few drinks in a quiet cafe after it's closed for the day. I don't dislike this.

Joe

Ha, same here brother.

Xenon

Besides, I don't mind a few drinks as long as you don't act drunk and play dumb later.

Joe

... don't worry. I won't.

Xenon

Relax, I know you very well. You're Joe Miller, the man who dodges questions like nobody's business. If someone like you say’s they're tackling a question head on, that most definitely means that they’ve made up their mind not to beat around the bush.

Joe

... If we want to talk about dodging questions, you and I are practically neck and neck. On the surface it seems like you're taking on a lot of things. However, whenever you encounter key issues you tend to just beat around the bush ...

Xenon

What are you talking about?

Joe

Well, like your love life... things in the past... and your family. After our reunion, the more I learn about you, the more I feel like you're basically using work as an excuse to escape from those things right now.

Xenon

Perhaps you're right. Today after talking to you I went back to my father's grave. I've been thinking about something myself too ... after his death it seems like I've been constantly trying to become someone like him.

Joe

Uncle Kyle… Eh… Previously I imagined him being rigid about every little thing . On top of that he didn't seem to like us very much, since we goofed around all day

Xenon

Haha, your image is spot on. Even though he didn't prevent me from playing the guitar, he was still very mad when I dropped out of school to play in the band. I had so many arguments with my family back then, way too many to keep track of ...

Xenon

Despite all that, his passion and diligence for his job as a law enforcement agent, his drive for perfection on every minute detail, even deep care for others; I've always had great respect for him in those regards.

Joe

Uncle Kyle really was a great law enforcement agent. You rarely see people like him nowadays...

Xenon

I've been thinking, is there something I can do for a city that is now missing him ... But I have no idea whether the things I'm doing now are correct or not. Maybe I just don't have it in me to be as perfect as he was ...

Joe

Yeah nobody is perfect though.

Xenon

But still, I'm like the farthest thing away from him  The things I did when I was still a teenager…  I bet even in his grave he still hasn't forgiven me about it.

Joe

You're referring to “that”, right? Recently, the gossip channel on iM has been reporting on that too.

Xenon

Sigh … They're writing about it again? Remember the paparazzi people I mentioned before, the ones who kept harassing me? Those are the ones.

Joe

Let me look it up ... Oh, it's this one. Now that I'm reading it, it really is quite over the top.

Xenon

... What's it say?

Joe

“The mysterious renegade! The legendary hacker “X” who robs form the rich and gives to the poor! An underground punisher that lurks in the shadows of the Internet! ... PFFFT, HAHAHAH!!

Xenon

Shut up! God, that stuff is so cringe worthy.

Joe

How so? Even now it's still really sick and awesome! I still remember the moment when I first learned that you were X. It was truly mind blowing ... on top of that, you were just 14 or 15 years old when you started being him. Just like those anonymous hero’s appears in comic books!

Xenon

Awesome my ass; I was this close to getting locked up ... I only got pardoned because they agreed to join A.R.C.. Now that I think about it, I'm essentially the same as that guy ...  

Joe

Hmm?

Xenon

Nothing ... those damn paparazzi ... this stuff is from ages ago, yet they're still reporting it like it's some kind of big discovery. There should be a limit to how dumb they can be but I guess that doesn't matter now a days.

Joe

Those things, are you not interested in doing them again? I can guarantee if you do it in the current online environment it's going to create an even bigger commotion. Especially with your current skill level, nobody is going to catch you.

Xenon

Whenever I see those retarded comments that idea still pops into my mind... but it's not worth it, so I decided not to. After all, what I'm doing at A.R.C. now is more or less the same thing. Only difference is now has a legal label on my activities.

Joe

Tch, you could make a sh*t ton of money too.

Xenon

The stink of money in that brain of yours is definitely going to get you screwed someday.

Joe

...

Xenon

...What's wrong?

Joe

Haha ... that might have come a tad bit too late.

Xenon

...

Joe

Let’s... cut to the chase. Follow me; I have something to show you.

Xenon

... OK.
[Signal Lost]
