“Gah!” Robin shouted.

Smoke drifted up from the scorched spot on the ground, and he stared at it dumbly for a moment. The robot had fired on them, as if they’d said the wrong thing. He didn’t know what they could have said to change its mind, but whatever that was, they would probably never know.

He scrambled back in the next moment, just as Givens told him to run. He purposefully moved in the opposite direction as Givens so the robot would have to choose one of them to pursue. That made it fifty-fifty odds if all things were equal, and he didn’t think they particularly were. His boots scraped over rocky ground, pounding on the dry earth.

“Shoot it! Shoot it!” he yelled as he ran.

He looked ahead of him, then angled for cover. He saw a freestanding boulder and he rushed to get behind it. Then he could return fire.

Zak had not wanted to try destroying the robot, preferring to capture the thing instead. But if it was going to continue to pursue their companions, he was going to have no choice.

He whispered, "Do you think it is programed to only fire to prevent entry into the shack? Or will it continue to pursue Rob and Givens if they fall back like they are and don't show aggression."

"I am going to wait..."

Since Rob and Givens both retreated without returning fire, he took aim and tracked the robot, keeping it sighted through the cross-hairs. He held off squeezing the trigger until he was sure that the robot was going to keep shooting at his friends. He would hold his fire it it stopped and did not shoot again.

Mordecai sucked in a breath as the robot opened fired. It's modulated voice slightly echoed off the rocks as it showed it's apparent anger. The scout sighted down his rifle and began to take aim.

Out of the side of his mouth his whispered back, "Hard to say. All the units I've run across have been friendly and more of maintenance robot than anything. Some one tinkered with this one..."

Like Zak, the scout steadied his aim and waited for the Mister Handy to make it's move.

September 6th, Morning – Inside the 485 look, northeast of Mint Hill

Givens had no issue getting the brahmin to cover. In fact, the animals were very docile considering that a gunfight was about to break out. Perhaps it was that the energy blast from Mister Handy was not something the pack animal identified as something to be feared. In case, the older man had no trouble getting the beasts to cover back the way they came.

Meanwhile, the floating robot moved out of the shack and just off the porch. While Givens had done an excellent job at getting the brahmin to cover, it had left him a bit exposed. The robot detected this and began to take aim. But before a glob of green energy was fired, two rifle shots cracked as both Zak and Modercai open fired.

Zak's shot drilled pinged into the spherical body of the floating robot with enough force to cause it to wobble. The armor of the Mister Handy must have held as it didn't seem phased by the shot. Mordecai's shot glanced off the side and ricocheted into the canyon somewhere. The shots did little to change the Mister Handy's aim as it fire off a bolt of plasma at Givens

"MORE HOSTILES DETECTED! ALL TRESPASSERS WILL BE EXTERMINATED! YOU WILL NOT HAVE HER!"

For an shuffling old fellow, Givens could move when needed.
It was darn close to seeing skin melted away in an electrical surge but for some unexplained reason, Givens managed to duck enough to see it whiz into the nearby rocks.
A rock debris shower spraying both Givens and the brahmin with little effect.

"Dis robot is touchy."
"Shame to destroy de guardian."
He muttered as he pulled his pipe rifle from the leather holster on the side of the brahmin.
Moving to a spot where he could get a decent shot without exposing himself to the wrath of the electricity ray; Givens waited for the right time to shoot.

The armatures of the floating robot twitched as it's shot barely missed Givens. That was the only sign of frustration, if one could even call it that the robot displayed. Although one could probably image it's circuits recalculating threats as it's sensor eye began to swivel around.

Then Given's shot pinged off the body of the Mister Handy. It was a glancing shot, leaving a divot in the armor, but otherwise failed to penetrate.

Zak muttered a curse after his shot had hit, but did little to stop the robot. He whispered as another round was chambered, "This is a damned waste of a working robot. Too bad we cannot reason with it, but at least it sounds like it is protecting the lady we are looking for."

He snapped off another shot, but the bullet zipped past too high to be on target if he could have seen it. With Givens returning fire, at least they had the robot in a crossfire and could maybe keep it from advancing on either group.

Still camouflaged he remained still, only moving the muscles required to pull squeeze the trigger and aim.
