Without being able to properly listen to his surroundings, Nathan continued to yell at the top of his lungs towards anyone who could help him. While he personally believed that he was yelling in a voice that would considered to be normal, anyone else nearby would hear him screaming like an absolute lunatic. This should promptly alert the corporate forces to confiscate him for his lunacy-like behavior, however they would luckily be picked up by people more akin to him.
The first person to arrive that Nathan saw was a well-toned man with pink-and-white hair. He only saw him just as he turned around, where he saw him approaching him cautiously while being low to the ground. Overjoyed, he crouched as he began pointing to the fallen member.
"Oh thank god you're here!" Nathan expressed desperately in a louder than normal tone, "My comrade here is trapped under the rubble and~!"
Suddenly, Atkin would feel something push him aside as he nearly found himself tumbling down a small pile of debris. He was quickly able to catch his balance, but nonetheless he felt fairly shaken up by the encounter. He didn't hear him coming from behind him at all. In fact, he couldn't hear what the man said afterwards outside of a blurred noise resembling speech, almost as if he was hearing from underwater.
"HEY!" Nathan shouted back defensively as he hopped back onto his feet, "There was no need for~!"
Thankfully Nathan would cease his spastic yelling as he saw both men assisting his fallen comrade. He didn't need to hear to see what was going on and how absolutely torturous it was for his fallen friend. Quickly he too began to comfort the fallen man as he began muttering for him to keep going.
"C'mon man, you're going to be alright." Nathan encouraged hopefully as he tried to help with pushing away the statue, but to no avail. It was too heavy for even the three of them to lift. Tears glistened in his comrade's eyes in a heart wrenching gaze that would sadden even the most pitiful of bastards. Nathan truthfully had not seen his face before but the fact that he was one of his own was enough to move his resolve in getting him out alive.
However the more they tried, the worse the circumstance became. Even Nathan's own eyes began to tear up in despair. Suddenly, his comrade would look to him and speak in a desperate tone. Nathan's head got closer to him in an attempt to listen close at what he has to say. Yet he would be presented with both his bracelet and a package of some kind.
What Nathan would hear next would be vital for the safety of the materials presented to him. While he couldn't hear exactly all that he said, he would catch three phrases in his speech:
Nathan's brain quickly began to engrave them into his physique; being the only three phrases his ears would relay. They would begin to playback in his mind over and over again, making sure that he gets the idea. Yet it would be enough knowledge for him to understand what he wanted him to do. He grasped the fallen man's hand as he began to stare into his hazy eyes, growing more lifeless by the second. More tears streamed down his own as he watched him leave the physical world and into the afterlife.,,
"I..." Nathan croaked as he sniffled in place, "I won't let you down... I swear by it."
With that he finally lets his partner go and grabs ahold of both items. Glancing over the bracelet first, Nathan read the writing that was engraved into it. It would only show the name:
Nathan went through his memory in order to dig up anything revolving around that name. Yet his conscious was too busy playing back those three words he heard as they quickly constructed a mission goal that he could understand:
"Deliver the Package to Free Mountain.
Bring it to the fallen comrade's brutha.
It will help against the HPFG."
As long as he keeps to that goal, he should have no problem in accomplishing it. And luckily for him, he knew just where to go. Free Mountain is not a literal mountain of the free. Rather it is the largest MLI enclave found right in the middle of the neutral zone. If he can deliver the package there, then his job will be done.
But to accomplish this, he must first get himself out of HERE.
Nathan glanced up to the dark-skinned man who barked something in a rushed tone. No doubt he wanted to get out of here as much as they did. Tucking the package in between his arms, he quickly began to follow Johnny, hoping he had figured a way to get out of here. While he did so, he would finally notice another person that happened to be around them - a tall pale woman with colorful hair and sported a few tattoos on her body. She would to ask something to the rest of the group, which Nathan interpreted as something among the lines of "What the fuck is going on?".
That's when Nathan prematurely spoke his mind regarding his current predicament.
"Free Mountain..." he spoke in a semi-dazed state, not realizing that he was speaking aloud, "I must get to Free Mountain."
