Orders? Alex would send everything he was recording to his handler but he checked that connection, too: the feed was dead, it wasn't a two way street anymore. All the times he complained - used to complain - about having no privacy and now that he finally had it, he wasn't sure what to do with it. The fact that his feed was disabled seemed to indicate this could be a mercenary hired by one of OmniCorp's competitors. Someone must have done their homework. He doubted the local Detroit mob would have that kind of foresight dealing with their first cyborg, making sure he couldn't call for backup.

Industrial espionage, then. If that was the case, he would have assumed their mercenary would be more...professional. This one didn't fit the usual profiles, personality wise.

Alex seemed almost taken aback at Rumlow, the silence stretching several long seconds as if he was processing something. He had never been lectured on his people skills, although his trigger finger might have had something to do with that. Most people on his beats treated him with respect or fear or a combination of both. So long as they remained productive, law-abiding citizens, Alex hadn't been too particular about the details. This mercenary didn't have that look, that body-language that said he had that respect. Alex couldn't picture him respecting anyone. Well. Maybe the paycheck.

"Detective Alex Murphy, Detroit Police Department." It might have been either leftover stubbornness ingrained in Alex or he just plain didn't care: he didn't call himself "RoboCop" no matter how popular that name was in the polls. He finally seemed to remember that thing called blinking.

"I require daily maintenance, yes," Alex didn't see where this was going. "Coddling" wasn't the word he would have used, personally. "Why?"

He watched as Rumlow came closer and closer, more of a saunter than anything else. It didn't occur to him that he should keep his mouth shut instead of broadcasting everything.
