At Tekuma's response, Porsalynne paused. The android was silent as she stared at her daughter, her eyes seemingly boring into the teenage cyborg in front of her. "That's it. We're leaving." Cipher blinked, rising to his feet. "Leaving? But Porsalynne, we still need to..." The female android rounded on her lover, her gaze sharp and unflinching. "Our daughter has not eaten or slept in ages! I will not stand by and allow this to happen. We're getting Tekuma some rest and some food. We can deal with our issue afterwards!" Porsalynne had gone full 'mother mode' and was not going to back down until her daughter's condition was satisfactory. At this point, Tekuma might notice that her mother seemed just as tired as her father, though seeing her daughter again had reenergized the robot.

Tekuma was tired, offering a small smile to Cipher and Charlene before cringing at Porsalynne's chastising of her father. It was funny, at least a little bit that her father for all his power on her internal scouter was still under his wife's fingers sometimes. She did fully notice her mom's exhaustion, looking at Charlene with worry and Cipher as well. "My... My biological dad did research on spirits.. There could be a way to seal the spirit but it'd take a lot of magic.."
And containing the soul inside myself or a jar, but you don't see any of those around. She thought to herself, the cyborg walking forwards towards her dad. "I read up on it from my dad's old books, he wrote journals before the house burned.. do you want to try letting me help?" By the sounds of it, it could look like to the parents that their daughter definitely DID NOT have the energy to do such a thing.
As Tekuma mentioned her previous father's work, all three stopped and looked in her direction. Her father worked with this sort of thing? They hadn't expected that. "We'll take any help you can give," Cipher said, giving his daughter a warm smile. He wasn't sure what she could provide, but they were on a planet where magic was in abundance. If she had a way to solve their issue, then it was for the best.
"Indeed. But first, we're taking you back to the ship to feed you, get you some rest...and clean you up. When was the last time you bathed?" Porsalynne's motherly tendencies would not be denied! Charlene gave her sister an apologetic smile. She was going to have to go along with their mother. The little tech-head knew there was no getting out of it.

Tekuma looked at them as they looked at her with surprise before her father gave her a warm smile. Something weird made the female feel uneasy in her heart; perhaps she'd been infected by the spirit. Whether she had or not, her mom dared not relent in her motherly tendencies. Looking at Charlene with a kind of 'help me' expression netted an apologetic smile and a comedic bead of sweat on the cyborg's temple.
"I... would you be mad if I said I haven't showered in like two months?" Rubbing the back of her neck, the android offered a comedic and shameful while nervous smile. Not even Charlene could get her out of this mess.
If the flat look Porsalynne gave her adopted daughter was any indication, then yes, yes she was mad. The female android reached out, taking Tekuma's arm, and began pulling the red haired cyborg along. "Right. We're getting you a shower, a meal, and then you're taking a nap. THEN we'll work this spirit business out." For a dainty android not built for combat, she could be quite proficient in exercising her will.
Cipher and Charlene exchanged glances and chuckled, the pale android getting up and following the mother and daughter out. He could probably get some rest as well.

Tekuma looked at Porsalynne nervously, She knew her adopted mom meant well but when her arm was grabbed, it dragged the android out of sheer surprise. The tone of mom's voice was implying to argument, as the other two chuckled she could only give them an expression of semi-annoyance. Thanks for the help, Charlene. She mused telepathically to the sibling, seemingly salty but playful at the same time.
Thankfully the ship wasn't parked too far away from the ruins, and it was rather easy for them to navigate their way to it (never underestimate a mother on a mission). Before long, they were back on the ship, and Porsalynne had made sure that their adoptive daughter was in the bathroom, cleaning herself up. "And once you're clean, I'm making you up something to eat, you hear?" she called out through the closed bathroom door. Meanwhile, Cipher and Charlene could only watch the spectacle with some amusement. "You know, it's been too long since we had moments like this," Charlene replied, "What with evil namekians and evil ghosts, it's good to have a nice time with the family again." Cipher looked at his daughter and smiled, giving a small nod.

Tekuma was dragged along by her mother, still quite unamused as she was shoved in the bathroom and told to get clean. Soon enough, she was all scrubbed up just as her mother shouted through the door. "I'm already clean mom! The water's gone and messed with my circuits a little bit though, gonna have to fix them when I restore my magic energy."
Getting up and wrapping herself in a towel to dry off, her wet hair was slicked back down to near waist-length as a shimmering red trail of hair. Fixing up a new pair of clothes, the female sneezed and blew off the door on accident just as she finished getting dressed. What happened next was the teen went from pale skin to a deep red really fast. "Uuuhhhhh.... I can fix that?"
All three of them spun around as the door was suddenly blown from its hinges, leaving a rightfully embarrassed Tekuma. Seemed that after all this time she still didn't know her own strength sometimes. Or maybe it had been the water messing with her circuits. Either way, instead of a firm scolding one would expect for damaging the ship, Porsalynne gave her adoptive daughter a smile. "Oh, it's fine. We can fix that." She might have recieved a scolding normally, but after being separated from her for so long, and learning what she had been through, they were going to be a bit more lenient.
As Charlene walked over to recover the door, Porsalynne invited Tekuma over to a table where breakfast was being served. Your standard fare. Eggs, bacon, toast, that sort of thing. Porsalynne always cooked big, mainly because she wanted to ensure her family was well fed, and she could easily polish off whatever was left over. "Come on over. Eat. I will not have my daughter be skin and steel enforced bones."

Tekuma looked at them as her face remained a scarlet tone, redder than the thick mane of hair behind her steel-enforced skull. Watching her sister go recover what remained of the door, she'd definitely expected a rather harsh scolding from the android she called mother, sitting at the table upon Porsalynne's invitation. Looking around for Cipher, the red-haired metal female would simply sigh and begin eating if allowed.
"Thank you..." The teen replied quietly, briefly looking up at the older android.
Cipher looked over at his daughter as she began to eat, the pale android smiled and nodded. "You're welcome Tekuma. We're always here for you, no matter where you go." Porsalynne moved to sit beside Tekuma, smiling sweetly to her as Charlene got to work on repairing the door. It wouldn't be that hard for her to do. A quick patch up, and they can get the repairs done proper once they returned to Earth.
Meanwhile, Porsalynne and Cipher had their attention on their wayword second daughter. "So, tell me," Cipher asked, "What have you gotten up to since you came here?"

Tekuma continued to munch on the food, her nose itching prompted the female to immediately clap her nose over with her hand and instead two blasts of ki would come out from her ears, with thankfully no damage and ricochet off the walls and be re-absorbed by the tiny android. The comfort of just being with Cipher and Porsalynne made her feel strangely at home, before the question was popped.
"N....Nothing really. I've just butted heads with this demon named Alaistair, wants me to help him do something I'm not exactly sure about, think he wants me to help restore a throne? I dunno. I just don't know how to feel about it. I've just been so reliant on others that I'm not sure how I should feel about it or what I should do. But other than that, dad, I have to ask something..."
"Won't you get in trouble with the BBA for associating with an exile? I know you care, but I don't want you to have your job taken away and be kicked from the Blue Banner like I was. I guess I kind of lost all I wanted in life after that.." Playing with the eggs on her plate, the tiny red-haired android bit back tears. "I'm sorry father..."
Seeing the tears trying to form in her eyes, Cipher gently reached over to pat Tekuma on the shoulder, a comforting gesture. "Don't worry about me Tekuma. Vipoi may have exiled you from Earth, but that doesn't mean we can't talk to eachother. After all, we're not on Earth right now." Cipher sat back in his seat, "To be honest, when I spoke to Vipoi about this, he felt that this was the best he could do for you. A chance to recover and to turn yourself around. A chance to find yourself. You may have lost your position on Earth for now, but take this as a chance to work out what you really want in life." He gave her a warm smile, "Without having to rely on others. I know you're capable of looking after yourself. And just know that whatever decision you make in life, I'll accept it."
Porsalynne gave Tekuma a warm, loving smile, silently agreeing with Cipher's words. Even though Tekuma would have to find her way in this galaxy, she could always count on her family to support her. "Now, about what you said earlier," Cipher said, changing the topic, "You mentioned something about some demon wanting you to help restore a throne. This wouldn't happen to involve a konatsian named Plato would it?" The android knew Plato was on Konats, as well as Tekuma's grievance with him. After all, Plato had effectively killed her family. But what could the konatsian be up to to warrant the assistance of a demon, and to try and get his daughter involved in it?

Tekuma bit her lip and closed her eyes, the android trying her best not to shed tears in front of her adopted father. His pat on the shoulder only seemed to make her cry a bit more from the comfort, tears slipping past her soft red eyelashes. Looking at him as he spoke about ViPoi, telling her he said that it was the best thing for her to do, the small redhead continued to fight back tears.
"I am not capable of doing anything but cause pointless destruction father, you saw what I did to Tulip. I.. I killed her.. her blood was a.... all over me... I sh..should have never joined the BBA because of the ABOMINATION I AM!" The last part was a powerful wail, slamming her head into the table and sinking her clawed fingertips into the surface of it like a hot knife through butter.
"I should have died like my parents did! I wonder why mom brought me into this world if all I am going to become is some homicidal maniac!"
Cipher looked at his daughter sadly as she continued to beat herself of, calling herself a monster, only able to cause destruction. It pained him to see her like this.
"Tekuma, let me tell you something," Cipher said softly, yet loud enough to get her attention, "Do you know how the BBA got started? How it gained its power to begin with?" He paused, waiting for her response before continuing. "It all began with a set up. Vipoi wanted to prove the BBA was superior to the global military, and so set up a fake attack on the governor of the Western Capital. Men disguised as saiyans attacked him, and ended up fatally wounded him. Vipoi used that as an excuse to launch an attack on the Western Capital."
Cipher looked upwards as he remembered it all. "It was my first assignment really. Vipoi floated high above the city, charging up an attack to try and force the military to back down. KAOS had been sent in to steal information from Capsule Corp, destroy the facility, and then help combat the Global Military. In the end, we succeeded. But how many men did we end up killing, just to take power?"
Cipher sighed. Though he had made it a point not to kill anyone during that assault, it still didn't change the fact they had essentially launched a coup against their own planet, one that they were still benefiting from to this day. "My point is Tekuma, we've all done things we regret. That doesn't mean you should give up on yourself because of it. Learn from your mistakes, and get better from them. You're not a monster Tekuma, there is potential for much good inside of you. Remember that."
