When Engie opened up the parcel for him, he had to admit he was fairly surprised and happy to get his guitar back. Taking out the instrument, he proceeded to tune the guitar, glad for something to help him take his mind off what happened during Halloween. Building and modifying machines were good and all, but sometimes he needed a break from them, especially since it had been the only thing he'd been doing since Halloween ended.

Action: 1450 Mitchell Road and around, morning, open to all.
If you happen to be around the house, you will catch Engie playing his guitar and singing this song. You can watch, listen, even interupt him, but he would prefer it if you let him finish his song first.

Action: Bakery, afternoon
Well, he's back in the bakery again, manning the counter. He's trying to be cheerful and helpful to the customers, but when there's no one around his co-workers might notice that he's quieter and more subdued than usual. In fact, he's not speaking with them at all, choosing to look elsewhere whenver they're around. Want to ask him what's wrong?

Action: Late afternoon, the garage.
Engie comes by the garage with a strange package in his hands. He seems to be looking for someone.

Garage!!!!

*Sniper should be manning the garage, or changing the oil of that car up on the lift. But instead he's out back pegging a tire with his bow. There's a good 30 arrows stuck in the thing already.*

(It doesn't take Engie that long to locate the Australian. For a moment, he hovers near the doorway; he's heard enough from others about what happened with the pods, and if Sniper had met his doppelganger...

Eventually though, Engie manages to give a tiny cough.)

Umm...hey there, Sniper.

Howdy Slim.

Ummm...I've got ya rifle here. Sorry it took me so long ta finish it.

(Turns out that weird package he was carrying is the sniping rifle the Sniper asked him to fix up a while back ago. It's been modified for left-hander, and should work as normal.)

Wanna give it a go? If there's anythin' wrong with it, I can work on it some more.

No worries. You had a few.. unforseen delays afterall. You get through that alroight?

*Because he hadn't been by to check and he feels bad about that and angry at himself for not being able to set aside his own feelings over something that in the end, didn't even matter. He takes the package and opens it, a small smile on his face as he inspects the weapon.

He reaches in his pocket for some ammo, turns out he's still in the habit of carrying extra with him wherever he goes, even if he doesn't have a gun to use. In one swift practiced motion he loads the gun, cocks it, aims and fires, grinning as a street lamp several blocks away shatters and rains pieces of glass on the sidewalk below. Grinning he pulls the pin back and lets the empty cartridge drop onto the ground at their feet. There's not a hint of hesitation or signs that it might jam, Engie had done good work.*


Yer a real lifesaver Truckie.

From: [identity profile] hardhat-truckie.livejournal.com
(The humming doesn't distract him sufficiently to stop playing or to make any mistakes. But it does alert him to her presence. He nods at her and gives her a smile, before he finishes the last verse.

"I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
."

He sings a few more Hallelujahs, before the song comes to an end. He then stands up to greet Dr Ilsa.)

Top'a the mornin' to ya Doc. Hope I didn't raise too much of a racket out here; I just got mah guitar back in the post, an' I couldn't wait ta try it out.

Interesting hymn. I thought it might be time for chili and the fixings this weekend, and wondered if you wanted to come by.

S'not really a traditional hymn Doc, but the message an' the feelin' is there. I think the Lord wouldn't mind whether it's sung in Latin in a church, or with a guitar in a crazy town called Mayfield.

(He is slightly surprised when Dr Ilsa invites him over though, and also slightly touched that she invited him over. They hardly know each other, after all. But then again, she's the only to have seen the other side of him. In that aspect, she knew him better than his entire team at home.)

Much obliged, Doc. I'd love ta come over, if it's not too much trouble for ya. Are ya sure though?
