"The same ninja outfits," Linc said. "The same guns, too?"
"That's what they used to subdue her. The disrupters they had then weren't strong enough to overpower her. So they used those guns, which shoot these electrical discs. They stick to you and then shock you enough to knock you out," Moira said.
Now that he was actually getting some answers, Linc wanted to ask more questions, but the buzzing was growing too intense to ignore. He looked back over his shoulder, but didn't see anybody who looked like they were following them. He hadn't exactly expected them to be dressed entirely in black, although considering the crowd they probably would have still blended in, but he thought maybe they would like big, buff military people. All he saw back there were hipsters swaying to the music.
"I think they're here," Linc said to Moira, who looked startled.
"How do you know?" Moira asked, also looking back.
"Don't you feel the buzzing?" Linc asked. He was used to hearing things other people didn’t, but not so much feeling things.
"No, I think you're the only one who does. Where are they?" she asked.
"I'm not sure," Linc said, turning to look forward again. The light rail station was closer now, but had never seemed farther away. "I can feel the buzzing getting stronger, but I can't pinpoint it."
"But it's behind us?" she asked.
"That part I'm sure about."
"Then we better get moving," she replied and started pushing more forcefully through the crowd. Like heard a couple of people tell them to watch where they were going, but they were so closed in that he wasn't sure if they said aloud or merely thought it.
