Osiris nods, backs up and keeps one eye on Amanda and one on their

As Amanda expected, the deadbolts snap with a dull, metallic crack and she
finds herself looking into the store, darkened and strangely ominous
compared to their visit just a brief while ago.

Suddenly the fir stands up on Bongo's neck, while Osiris, Alex and Kyle all
sense immediate danger.

"Wasn't there a robot..." Osiris starts.

A laser just barely misses Amanda's shoulder. Inside can be seen the glint
of metal moving quickly between the aisles.


With his trademark smirk appearing on his face again, the young cyberknight face glows with excitement "i guess we found him! ". Concentrating for a brief second a glowing shield of energy appears on his forearm as he pulls his pump pistol out ready for action. "Close-quarter guys, let me walk point with the shield, you guys get ready to blast the robot." 

(If infra-red vision will help in this dark room he will switch it on) Walking carefully into the shop Osiris stays low, close to cover and keeps his eyes peeled for any signs of movents, a glint of moving metal. If  he is fired upon he will try to jump out of the way or will block it with his shield and return fire.
