"Heard the rumor, 'Vier?" Nikolas asked his buddy over a bottle of booze.
"Which one?" Javier asked, wanting a clarification on which rumor is friend was referring to.
"About Glast Heim, which exploded for no reason at all."
"Yeah, I heard about it." Javier acknowledged. "Rumor says it had a laboratory. And that they were doing illegal research." He expounded on what he knew before taking a drink of his arrack.
"Biological weapons." Clarified Nikolas. "Specifically, living breathing sentient weapons."
Whatever foul alcoholic brew Javier was drinking, hearing Nikolas statement about biological weapons, all of that was wasted as Javier did a spit take. "What the?! You serious?!"
"Yes I am." Nodded Nikolas. Looking to the sides, he then leaned closer. "From what I heard from the guys at the site, some of their subjects escaped. And said subjects caused the explosion."
"This is madness!" Exclaimed Javier, who had the look of utter disbelief.
"That's not all. Someone high up leaked sensitive information about Glast Heim to the other countries. I'd reckon we'll be in war in a few month." Finished Nikolas as if expecting that what he said will just happen.
Javier could do nothing but stare in shock at what he just heard. Mouth agape, he puzzled at the information which his friend has just said.
"C'mon 'Veir. It's only a rumor." Nikolas cheerfully says, trying to lighten the mood.
"When it comes to your words, my friend,..." Javier lowered his head and shook in resignation. "I'm always weary. Especially when you have buddies in the Mog Network"
