Chapter 1: GV200
GV200 is an Android for the police.
Unlike the androids for patrol, GV200 models are mostly used to enter the danger zone before the policemen take any action.
Due to its particular function, the station can only have one at a time. It will be replaced by a new one once it is damaged.
His original programmed personality is fearless and outspoken. He has a flexible body.
All of which assist in the function of GV200.
He can do lots of work that most of the police force can’t or won’t do.
Hunting criminals, stealth missions, and getting into more dangerous situations like gunfights. He creates openings for the humans.
It has a name, Gavin, someone named him from his model series code.
That man has been gone for a long time, but the name itself has never changed.
Chapter 2: RK900
RK900 is an Android for the army, the newest and most advanced machine.
It is only activated for the mission when the police need the SWAT team.
It’s body is heavier than normal, but the anti-impact and anti-ballistic effects are remarkable. It can suppress enemy fire as much as possible in a gunfight.
It has a good looking face, which is a running joke in the SWAT team.
However, its face and interrogation skills can easily break through people’s defenses to get more information.
It has no name. RK900, 900, RK, Android, whatever they like. It is only needed for missions.
Chapter 3: SHOWTIME
They meet each other during a mission. The place is going to turn into a gunfight.
“.....Ah, you! Only for the dangerous mission, you show up.” Gavin smiles like a jerk, talking to RK900.
“Yes, I was born for this.”
“Seriously, It’s been a long time since I last saw you .”
“For me, I just met you one hour ago.”
“Yeah, before you shut down...In fact, 98 days have already passed.”
“Gavin! Come here for backup! Ready to go!”
“FUCK.” Gavin smiles at RK900 again before he leaves him. “SHOWTIME!”
RK900 watches Gavin leave, thinking about their last meeting.
The same line.
Chapter 4: Memory
“It’s been two months since I saw you the last time.” Gavin still chooses to talk to the only other Android, when they are on a mission.
“The actual time period is 54 days.”
“Um,” Gavin mutters, ”So, would you like me to fill in your memory for those 54 days? I have lots of funny files.”
RK900 looks at him.
Gavin is not broken now. That is in its memory.
“Please don’t save useless information in your memory.” Those are the last words left to Gavin from RK900.
Chapter 5: CONNECT
“Hey~what's up~~,” Gavin speaks in broken sentences as he approaches 900.
“...” RK900 watches with an indifferent expression as Gavin acts like a funny asshole.
“This time...urr, It’s been 38 days.” He smirks. “How about it, I fill you in for those 38 days?”
“34 days have passed since the last time we met.”
“...” Gavin visibly shakes a bit. ”Has it?”
“Anyways, yes or no?”
Chapter 6: Long time no see
“Hey~what's up~~” Gavin walks like a silly jerk and heads towards RK900.
I've wanted to say hello to you this way for the longest time
!” He smirks. “I haven't seen you in 79 days!”
In fact, they have met 41 days ago. Clearly, their talks happen after Gavin provides backup.
“How about it, I fill in those 79 days?”
The same question, Gavin asks.
Chapter 7: His blood
When he boots up for the mission, Gavin is not working with them.
Before they start attacking, RK900 would play the memories from Gavin, again and again.
There are many repeated memories.
He deleted those the first time, but then he stopped doing that.
The memory scenes are all from Gavin’s view.
He is running, jumping and climbing between buildings like he is flying.
That’s the height he can’t reach, as an army Android.
However, the memories always stop before some missions. The following scenes are always of him walking out of the Android depot.
RK900 understands well what that means.
He has seen it countless times.
Gavin rarely survives the frontline.
In every mission with RK900...Never.
Many times, RK900 has had to shut him down by his own hand.
Chapter 8: His
“Your breakage rate is not very good”
“!” Gavin hasn't said anything yet. This is the first time RK900 talks to him before he does.
"How many times have you rebooted with a new body since I last saw you?"
“I…!” Gavin is unable to reply. He barely knows the reason for his own loss.
“You didn't read the files to understand what caused your loss?” RK900 shows his personality and questions the Android.
“You...don't understand…” Gavin replies with a hurt look. “You’ll never know...what that feeling is like to see myself dying…”
"..." RK900 suddenly feels regret and doesn’t know why he feels...that pain.
Looking at that man dying, who still wants to live.
The humans ignoring his begging, all of them stepping over his body in order to finish the mission, their utmost priority.
The Android who created an opening for them, who made a good start, left to die.
That suffering, which nobody knows.
If Gavin knew that RK900 had killed him many times...
He had even smiled at him before he died.
“I’ll give you some code of mine for behavioral prediction.” RK900, in a rare show of initiative, extends his hand to share information. ”I hope that next time, you can send me consistent memories.”
“...!” Gavin reveals his surprise and joy on his face clearly. RK900 can't help but give a gentle smile.
“It has to back up!!”
Gavin runs back to his back up manager, full of joy after he gets the code.
In the distance comes the questioning voice of why Gavin needs back up.
900 feels the heaviness in his system ease a little.
Chapter 9: Missing
“Hehe!” Gavin looks a little smug this time. “Guess what!?”
RK900 shows his curiosity slightly.
“I didn’t change bodies and here I am! Hehe!!” Gavin talks to RK900 like he deserves a reward.
For RK900, their every meeting is just between blinks, and then he has to face Gavin’s death again.
For Gavin, it’s the most exciting moment to meet RK900, despite knowing that it means he is going to face a dangerous situation.
He doesn’t care.
His smile is always there like the last time he saw him, death never leaves anything on Gavin’s face.
The hope within him is that Gavin will never taste death again, even if “HE” in his backed up memory won't know anything.
At least...worry less about him.
RK900 is concerned about him and protects him in his own way.
And he waits for their next meeting; Gavin is still in the same body.
Chapter 10: Survivor
Every time they meet again, Gavin brags that he survived untill he gets a smile or untill RK900 strokes his hair.
Even if he gets scolded, Gavin always backs up many times before he is willing to start his mission.
However, RK900 still cannot stop Gavin from dying in front of him.
The mission needs him, meaning that it’s a very dangerous mission.
He has to follow the order, stand behind the wall and watch it happen.
What else can he do for him?
Chapter 11: Gavin
RK900’s memory is short and almost filled with Gavin.
He reads Gavin’s memories while in sleep mode. He follows his steps, joins his little adventures, is lazy with him, and has fun with him.
Sometimes Gavin would say lots of things to the mirror (to RK900).
Says he is looking forward to meeting RK900 with a smile.
900 can't help but save several of those fragments, playing them repeatedly like a dream while in shutdown.
In the end…………….
What else can he do for him?
Chapter 12: Live
He saved Gavin.
The gunfire was blocked by him, Gavin covered with his shadow as if he were wrapped in wings.
RK900’s army body already had several wounds, blue blood bleeding out.
Gavin can’t ‘remember’ how that mission ended.
RK900’s clenched hands were removed from his arm, and he watched in a trance as 900 was dragged back into the vehicle.
At least his team saved him.
That’s a help he never got before, says his memory.
Chapter 13: Farewell
In the dim landfill, there are lots of strange points of light shining faintly.
RK900 lies there, some of his parts- his limbs and biocomponents- have been dismantled for being in good condition. And now, his power is on the verge of exhaustion.
He knows how long he’s been there. He is not going to try to do anything- just hope that the next 'RK900' can protect Gavin as he did.
“Hey, you wait there! I survived, again!” He plays back a memory of Gavin, the one which he says with a silly smile.
RK900 can never hide his smile at this fond memory.
That's all right.
Chapter 14: The end
“Nines!!” The familiar voice reaches RK900.
Gavin's shout is accompanied by the sound of footsteps in the water, which stops directly in front of him.
The bodies covering him are moved away. He finally sees the drizzle and the dark sky.
And a drenched Gavin.
"Nines...!! Nines!!!” Gavin says worriedly.
He never thought he would miss him this much.
“You...should not be here.”
“They said you were scrapped!! But the code you gave me is still connected to you…”Gavin said while he scans RK900’s body.
"Gavin, go back.” RK900 is worried about his future.
“How can you still worry about me when you’re like this now!!!” He wipes the dirt and mud from RK900’s body impatiently. “I am a deviant already, don’t you feel anything!!!?”
“Leave me. Even if you are a deviant, still…”
“Shut up!! I’ve destroyed my back up!!” He cannot go back anymore. Even if I return to the station, the new you wouldn’t be you…”
Gavin realised that some of his limbs were missing.
“Bastards!! Those humans...!!!” He curses with a cry.
“I’m going to find some biocomponents for you.” Gavin states as he wipes his tears, standing up in one swift motion. " Don't you move one fucking step.”
RK900 can only give him a little smile.
After that, Gavin disappears into the darkness.
Gavin didn’t take a long time, he comes back soon carrying many biocomponent parts.
“I can’t scan too many new types of biocomponents, so I took everything that I could recognize.” he says, his voice sounding a little tired.
“...What happened?” RK900 asks and looks at Gavin, who is keeping silent.
“I… I met the ‘ex-me’...” Gavin tries to control the quiver in his voice.
“This one doesn’t work…” Gavin ignores RK900, throwing one of the parts away.
"Do you want to talk?”
"..I read his memory, and then I shut him down…”
Gavin had been curious so he’d rebooted his ex-body. After he got the memory of the moments before his death, he could only cry and let his past-self rest.
“I'm so envious you…” Had been his last words.
The memory Gavin got had been the moment that RK900 shut him down. His expression had been one of deep pain and suffering.
He only knows RK900 is important to him, he had never thought RK900 would see him like this like he is important and way more. He didn't know.
“And battery…”Gavin moves his hand to his chest.
“This model suits you! I have found a battery that suits mine. “ Gavin laughs when he sees RK900 become nervous.
His system signals to him that all his biocomponents are in good condition.
“Hm,” Gavin felt a little poignant.
“Gavin…” RK900 cups Gavin's cheeks with his newly acquired hands.
"Uh, How, how’s your hand and foot, are...are they alright?” He says shyly.
“Hm” RK900 embraces Gavin, his new hand on Gavin’s.
“See? It’s working well.” The skin fades, revealing the smooth shell of his build and glowing a faint blue light.
“Yea...yeah...” Gavin gets nervous.
"What’s your next plan?”
“!” He gets a little disappointed.
“PHCK! Let’s move on!!!”Gavin breaks free of his embrace, jumping to another platform.
He feels that his new limbs are quite light and in excellent condition, regardless of balance or flexibility, he can feel that Gavin has carefully selected them for him.
“Get over here!”
At long last, he does not have to rely on Gavin's memory to experience the joy of freedom and movement, and more importantly, he can experience it together with Gavin.
