 Jaime was getting things ready in the little room of South Base that he had picked out for himself. Not the biggest room, maybe slightly larger than a closet. He did have his own bedroom back in El Paso, even if he was still finding leftovers from when Milargo lived in it for a year.

He was just moving in the bed, piecing together the wooden frame with an electric cordless drill he borrowed from Gear. After he got it set up, he surveyed the room. 

"TV, old PlayStation for some late night Forza, bed, couple sets of clothes just in case-" At which point a twittering went off in his head.

"Hey, I don't know everything about you, I just want to get my bases covered!" 


Jaime shrugs it off and begins to head to the door to grab his mattress from the hallway.

M'gann was excited to have Jaime around the base, with a space of his own to stay in. She'd missed being closer to him and to Paco and Brenda since moving away from the home they had so generously provided her with in ElPaso.

Jaime setting up shop at Titan's south meant an excuse to try to return the favor a little.

"Yay, your bed looks so good!" she said excitedly, stepping into the room with an armload of blankets, warm out of the dryer, a spaceheater and a somewhat short scarf that she had very clumsily knitted all by herself perched on top.

"I brought you room-warming presents, like housewarming but you know, a smaller scale."

Jaime accepts the gifts, placing the space heater on the end table, and folding up all but one blanket at the end of his bed. The remaining blanket, al by it's lonesome, end up wrapped around Jaime's shoulders.

"There we go! Now I'm nice and toasty. Thanks M'gann!" Jaime puts on a big grin for M'gann. He was glad to be on a team with people like her, and Mia, and Virgil and Richie.

"Yes, you too, scarab!" Then he realized he said that out loud.

"Hehe... So... M'gann... did I ever tell you about my abuela's Choco cake? Think a cake, but made to be like a huge choco!" If changing the subject was a superpower, Jaime hoped he had it.

M'gann tilted her head at him for a moment, patiently waiting when he seemed to be talking to the Scarab instead of her. She BEAMED when he mentioned the cake though, bouncing on the balls of her feet.

"Oh my gosh, that sounds amazing! Does it have a recipe?"

Jaime scratches his chin. "Heh. Next time I see my Abuela, I'll ask her to give it to us. But in the mean time... I think Virgil just got some ice cream sandwiches in the fridge. TO THE LOBBY!" Jaime's hand shoots out of the blanket, pointing in the air dramatically, but then he shoots it back under the blanket.

"Okay, new idea to give to Gear: centralized heating. It's colder in here than I thought. Yet I'm certain ice cream will fix this."

Well its not supposed to, Jaime thought to the blue device one his spine.

"I don't notice the cold much. I'm glad the blankets are helpful then. I saw on TV about this awesome blanket with arms but when I called the number they said I had to have something called a credit card to buy one."

M'gann pouted a little as the ventured out of Jaime's room and down to the main foyer.

"What are ice cream sandwiches?"

"Hm... I'd say... the cookie part is like if they made a long choco cookie. Like if it was a bar instead of a disc. And then instead of the normal cream filling, they use ice cream. Very good on a hot day."

Jaime ignored the bug. He knew that soon he would have the delicious taste of ice cream sandwiches in his mouth.

As he reached the freezer, he began to speed up. He grabbed for the door, pulled it open and...

Nothing. Nothing but a note inside.


Ate the ice cream sandwiches already. Cookies and cream was a good choice. Thank Virgil for me.

The Sandwich Bandit

“SCARAB! NO!” Jaime yells at the bug as the feeling of fire escaping his pores begins, and the armor surrounds him. However, it sucks back into him halfway, leaving him dazed. “Hehe... apparently being angry about missing sandwiches was enough to set it off...”

Megan pulled a sad face at the sight of the note - she'd been excited for that - but she started a little when Jaime's armour began trying to flood over his skin, putting a hand on his shoulder.

"It's okay, Scarab." - yes she's trying to talk to the armour - "We can just get more ice cream sandwiches from a store, right? You don't have to get upset."

"Yeah, listen to M'gann, Scarab!" Jaime looks into the freezer. He sees something blue sticking behind the ice maker. "Hold on..." He reaches his arm in and pulls out a hidden ice cream sandwich.

"Hey look, it must of fallen out of the box. Well, M'gann, I official give to you your first Cookies and Cream flavor Ice Cream sandwich!" And acting like it was some great treasure, he bows and hands the wrapped sandwich to M'gann, using both hands above his head like a platter for the sandwich.

She carefully took the little blue package with a huge smile, unwrapping it and taking a deep breath it - although it mostly just smelled like ice and sugar...

"I don't want to take ALL of it though, you should have some too." Carefully extracting the sandwich from it's packaging she broke it in half down the middle and held half out to Jaime.

"Here, you have this part."

Jaime takes it with a grin. "Oh, why thank you. Mm... DO YOU HEAR US, SANDWICH BANDIT? WE BEAT YOU!"

Jaime takes a bite and starts laughing. This team is going to be promising, Jaime thinks to himself for the thousandth time today.

"Yeah! We win sandwich bandit!" Megan cheers too around a mouth full of ice cream, taking another too-big bite.

"Mmm, these are great! We should get more before dinner so we can have them for desert!"
