((Well, this is basically the same post as the one I was going to put down from not even two or three posts ago. I just did some necessary editing, and presto, potpourri post surprise!....Or something funny like that :¬: ....Yeah. So, nothing to worry about, I griped for nothing...Sorry Cybog, I was very....uncool, I guess. I 'Pologize! .))

Roman glanced over the edge of the catwalk as he heard Xaiver say, "Good call, I guess I'll bring the wonder twins back here."

"Anytime comrade," Roman replied, finishing his work on the input panel.

Roman scratched his head before he covered the input panel back up, and looked up at the Lævateinn 2, and smiled as if he'd heard something.

"Thank you Lævateinn 2, I shall," he said with a smile, moving towards the end of the catwalk. He descended to the bottom level, and proceeded to walk towards the Aegis 11, all while resuming his singing. Once he made it, he climbed up the left foot to where Haruka was, and sat down, his singing quieting as he stared off into the hangar.

He got quiet, and looked at her, staring for a few moments before finally piecing together what he wanted to say in Japanese, "Hello Miss Haruka, you're as pretty as the last time I saw you." Roman was trying to go for the 'I'm not like that' demeanor, but he felt that he was already beginning to fail, and deflated a bit.

"Nevermind.....So, you look cold," he commented normally in English, although his older wisdom, and common sense, told him she was in the least a little preoccupied in action, and thought. He hoped it wasn't because of him.

He fiddled with his thumbs nervously before saying quietly, "I'm sorry about earlier, even if I didn't insult anyone, or you, what I said still caused unnecessary problems. I'll be more careful in the future, I promise."

Roman was getting more nervous as the silence continued. "I, uh....." he tried thinking of something that would lighten the mood, and make Haruka smile.

"Would you like to wear my coat, the lower levels of the hangars are always colder than the rest of the facility, or so I've thought, and you really do look cold," he admitted, somewhat shyly.

"But, you said it was nothing to worry about," as he removed his coat, and set it to the side, between Haruka, and himself. He wanted to cheer her up, as she seemed preoccupied, but he didn't know how, until a thought popped into his head.

"So, Miss Haruka, do you like cookies?" He asked, referring back to his supposedly funny remark from earlier that she hadn't heard.


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."

"Hello Miss Haruka, you're as pretty as the last time I saw you."

Haruka grinned slightly at his words and continued to type in her computer, trying to finish quickly before turning her attention to him. As she finished, she heard him say a lot more. Trying to justify his words from before and apologizing. She turned to him as he said the stuff about her being cold and then completely change the subject with the cookie remark. This made her giggle a bit.

"I'm a bit cold but I also have this thermal shirt underneath so it's all good", she said giving him a small smile. "Oh and don't worry about what happened earlier, I did get the joke, I was joking too but I had an emergency so I couldn't follow up I'm sorry. And yes I do like cookies sometimes, why?"

She looked at him intently, he was a very interesting man. She could tell he was worried about her thoughts about him and this was a bit amusing but she respected his feelings about it.

Roman was beginning to cheer up as he saw Haruka grinning, and even giggling at his comments.

"I'm a bit cold but I also have this thermal shirt underneath so it's all good," Haruka said, smiling at him, making Roman smile back, somewhat abashed that he thought she might need his coat. "Oh and don't worry about what happened earlier, I did get the joke, I was joking too but I had an emergency so I couldn't follow up I'm sorry. And yes I do like cookies sometimes, why?" Haruka looking at him with great intent, making Roman a bit more abashed, and nervous too.

Roman was, however, relieved to hear that Haruka had understood his joke to some degree, and had even wanted to follow through with a joke of her own in response. This lifted quite a lot of stress off of his shoulders, obviously.

"An emergency you say? I hope it wasn't too bad," he commented, hoping that any worries she had about said emergency might be somewhat alleviated through his comments. "I'm here if you need anything Miss Haruka, and even if there's nothing I can do, then you have my support. Even the kind where I make a fool of myself offering you my coat like some old fashioned gentleman, not realizing it's the 22nd ((I think that's right)) century," Roman laughed, although it was an honest one, it was still half-hearted, as he had reminded himself of yet another one of his blunders on his way to attempt to impress Haruka in some way.

"As for the cookies, I uh....." Roman looked at his feet as if he'd just realized they existed, trying not to say it in too offensive of a way, but in the end, he realized that commenting on cookies disappearing in ghettos would be too high of a risk to take, when it came down to it. He didn't want to chalk up another blunder, nor did he want to insult the beautiful young girl who'd grown up in one of those very ghettos.

"....Glad to hear it.....Yeah, glad to hear it," he replied blandly.

"'I'm getting nowhere like this,'" he said in Ukrainian-Russian, looking up and over at the Lævateinn 2. Roman looked at Haruka, and smiled, trying to buy time; but to no avail, he had no more ideas, and he was beginning to run out of juice when it came down to speaking in English too. That was it! Language, he would ask her about that.

"So, I have a question Miss Haruka. Would you mind teaching me some Japanese? So far I've learned on my own from listening to my technicians yell at me, but that doesn't create stable ground for learning a new language," he asked, and told Haruka with a kind smile. "Besides, it will help us pass the time until the test runs, seeing as I'm finished with anything I wanted to do on the Lævateinn 2, and you seem finished with what you're doing on the Aegis ju ichi."

Roman smiled yet again, only far more nervously, thinking, 'I'm looking more, and more like the fool in front of her. Next she'll find my trinket box on the Lævateinn 2, and see my picture of when I lost that bet, and had to wear pink versions of my clothes, and make everything else on me pink too: hair, eyebrows, and eyes included! That would be just wonderful!'


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."

((No problem...but now you owe me that story ))

Xaiver made his way to the dormitories, wondering how much longer it would be until the test runs. He called out to Zhao and Katsu ready to tell them about what was happening.

"Hey guys, I told Roman and Haruka I'd bring you two back to the battle suits. They'll be waiting..." Xaiver began to say.

Alone...he set me up! Well why should I care anyway, I mean I just met her...I mean them. Besides they all probably think your just another American who doesn't care about anyone but himself. I'm not though...am I? Xaiver snapped out of the conversation with himself.
"...for us, we should hurry back there."

He began to make his way back towards the battle suits. He didn't know why he was getting worked up like this, it was probably best to just let it go for now. As he got closer to the battle suits, he kept his eyes fixed on Roman and Haruka. He didn't see a chair in his path and smacked into it. He quickly covered his mouth to stop himself from yelling and continued walking like nothing ever happened.

"Miss me?" Xaiver called out to the two of them as he continued walking towards them. "Zhao and Katsu should hopefully be on their way," he added almost forgetting about them.

Haruka's eyes widened a bit and then looked at the jacket.

"Oh sorry, thanks a lot. I'm just not acustomed to others giving that kind of courtesy towards me", Haruka said and put on his jacket over her shoulders. "I feel a bit warmer now, thanks", she said giving him a small smile.

"So, I have a question Miss Haruka. Would you mind teaching me some Japanese? So far I've learned on my own from listening to my technicians yell at me, but that doesn't create stable ground for learning a new language," he asked, and told Haruka with a kind smile. "Besides, it will help us pass the time until the test runs, seeing as I'm finished with anything I wanted to do on the Lævateinn 2, and you seem finished with what you're doing on the Aegis ju ichi."

"Well I don't know how much I can teach you in so small a time", Haruka said giggling a bit and then looked at him. "I guess it won't hurt to try, you already have the basics down for all the phrases you've said so far."

She then looked over to where Xaivier was coming towards them.

"Miss me?" Xaiver called out to the two of them as he continued walking towards them. "Zhao and Katsu should hopefully be on their way," he added almost forgetting about them.

"That's good, let me see...", Haruka said as she turned to the monitor on the wall. It seems my test will the the first one so you guys get an idea of what we're gonna do. Each trial is different given the kind of fieldwork you specialize in. Mine is aerial and close range combat. So a lot of my training is in midair", Haruka said.

Zhao heard Xaivier's voice call out to him and Katsu, though it was a bit muffled, as he had the door to his room closed.

"Hey guys, I told Roman and Haruka I'd bring you two back to the battle suits. They'll be waiting..."

Zhao poked his head out of his room just in time to see Xaivier disappear down the hallway. May as well join them, he thought. He then noticed Katsu hadn't come out of his room. Probably asleep, Zhao thought. He then went up and banged loudly on the door to Katsu's room. "Xaiver wants us to get back to our mechs," he said in a raised voice, so Katsu could hear. Zhao didn't know why he felt compelled to help Katsu, as Zhao himself was very anti-people. I must be eager to get out of here, he thought. Zhao then walked down the hall and into the hangar. "Alright, this better be important," Zhao said to the others, annoyed that he didn't get more time to himself. "Katsu's probably waking up from his nap, and I'm itching to get back into my mech."

"Xaiver wants us to get back to our mechs,"

Katsu slowly opened his eyes at the sound of someone knocking at his dormitory door and then opened his eyes even wider at the sound of someone shouting at him through the door.

The last thing he had remembered was finding his dormitory and then laying down on his suprisingly comfortable bed. He had been having nightmares again.

I should really see if there is a therapist on base.

He got up off the bed and walked out the door and headed for the area where the mechs were docked arriving after a few minutes of walking.

"So...May I ask why we were summoned here?"

"I'm all about close range, I've turned Nova into the ultimate close quarters warrior." Xaiver stated proudly.

"Alright, this better be important," Zhao said to the others, annoyed that he didn't get more time to himself. "Katsu's probably waking up from his nap, and I'm itching to get back into my mech."

"Amen to that Ace. Well we're each taking the tests individually and each trial is based off what your suit specializes in. Haruka here will be going first," Xaiver said to Zhao and Katsu before turning to Haruka "Speaking of going first, is the second slot already slotted or are we taking volunteers?"

"So...May I ask why we were summoned here?"

"How quickly they forget", Haruka said jokingly. "We're about to begin our training excersizes guys."

"Speaking of going first, is the second slot already slotted or are we taking volunteers?"

"Well the order is a first come first served. They said I should be first because I'll be gathering data of your performances. Takahashi-san will gather info about me and Aegis 11. But if you guys want to settle among yourselves, you can decide the order", Haruka said and pointed towards a terminal near the monitor. "Over there you can make a selection of weapons you might want to test out, my designs so make sure to take advantage of all their features".

"Oh sorry, thanks a lot. I'm just not accustomed to others giving that kind of courtesy towards me," Haruka said and put on his jacket over her shoulders. "I feel a bit warmer now, thanks," she said giving him a small smile.

Roman smiled back warmly, somewhat relieved by her remarks. "You're very much welcome. But you don't have to wear it, it was simply a kind gesture on my part, no obligation goes towards you to wear it Miss Haruka, if you don't want to, that is," he explained kindly.

"Well I don't know how much I can teach you in so small a time," Haruka said, giggling a bit, and then she looked at Roman, making him grin abashedly. "I guess it won't hurt to try, you already have the basics down for all the phrases you've said so far."

"You should hear me when I try to carry on a conversation! I end up saying things so wrong, the technicians don't even want to tell me what I said half the time," he laughed at himself, unashamed. "Besides, Miss Haruka, you don't have to teach me now, considering the time restriction, but if I may ask, would you be willing to teach me over a long term period?" He asked with a small, but handsome smile.

"Miss me?" Roman heard from off to the side, looking over he noticed Xaiver was back. "Zhao and Katsu should hopefully be on their way," the younger man said, making Roman raise an eyebrow as he thought of how expediently Xaiver had returned. He'd hoped that his friend would have gotten the idea to give him some time.

"That's good, let me see..." Haruka said as she turned to the monitor on the wall. "It seems my test will the the first one so you guys get an idea of what we're gonna do. Each trial is different given the kind of fieldwork you specialize in. Mine is aerial and close range combat. So a lot of my training is in midair," she told them.

Roman smiled at this, he couldn't wait to see Haruka, and the Aegis 11 at work finally. Roman sat and listened to the remarks going back and forth for a bit.

"So...May I ask why we were summoned here?"

"How quickly they forget"
, Haruka said jokingly. "We're about to begin our training exercises guys."

"How quickly indeed," Roman added, chuckling at Haruka's joking manner.

"Well the order is a first come first served. They said I should be first because I'll be gathering data of your performances. Takahashi-san will gather info about me and Aegis 11. But if you guys want to settle among yourselves, you can decide the order," she told them all, Roman leaning back, somewhat nonchalantly.

"If it's all the same then, I call third slot, after whoever goes after Miss Haruka. I want to at least see one of my fellow pilots' performance before I go out," Roman said.

"Over there you can make a selection of weapons you might want to test out, my designs so make sure to take advantage of all their features." Roman smiled as he looked over at the monitor Haruka was pointing at.

He looked back at Haruka, he remarked, and complimented, "I'll be sure to take a look Miss Haruka. Considering they're your design, they're probably very good."


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."

"How quickly they forget", Haruka said jokingly. "We're about to begin our training excersizes guys."

Xaiver chuckled at the joke and added in, "Musta been quite a nap he had."

"Well the order is a first come first served. They said I should be first because I'll be gathering data of your performances. Takahashi-san will gather info about me and Aegis 11. But if you guys want to settle among yourselves, you can decide the order", Haruka said and pointed towards a terminal near the monitor. "Over there you can make a selection of weapons you might want to test out, my designs so make sure to take advantage of all their features".

Xaiver looked around the room for a few seconds before stretching his arms.

"Well I guess we'll have to..."

Xaiver heard Roman speak up before him, however he had picked the third slot.

You just went up in awesome in my book Xaiver thought.

"I'll go second, and I'll try not to make the rest of you look bad. So what exactly can we expect from these trials, or are you going to smile at me and tell me its a surprise?" he added in looking at Haruka.

"How quickly they forget, We're about to begin our training excersizes guys."

Katsu mentally scolded himself for not remembering that the training excersizes were supposed to begin today.

"If it's alright with you, I will go after Roman. I need the time to mentally prepare myself.

"Over there you can make a selection of weapons you might want to test out, my designs so make sure to take advantage of all their features".

Katsu looked over at the terminal and then walked over to it and began browsing through the selections. He was quite impressed with what he saw. It looks like I'll have my work cut out for me with all these weapons.

"What weapons would you suggest besides the energy sword?" He asked Haruka. Apart from the energy sword he couldn't decide which one to test first.

((Wait, I'm a bit confused - are the weapons we listed in the Casting Call already on our mechs, or do we have to choose them from the terminal?))

"If it's alright with you, I will go after Roman. I need the time to mentally prepare myself."

"Guess that means I'll go last," said Zhao. Despite his desire to get into his mech, he didn't exactly mind going last. It would be a good way just to surprise everyone with his skills. Zhao walked over to the terminal and looked over Katsu's shoulder at the weapons.

"What weapons would you suggest besides the energy sword?"

"I'd also like to know, what weapons would you suggest?" Zhao asked Haruka, curious to see if any weapons would suit his mech.

"I'll be sure to take a look Miss Haruka. Considering they're your design, they're probably very good."

"Why thank you", Haruka said to Roman with a smile. She then turned to Xaivier.

"I'll go second, and I'll try not to make the rest of you look bad. So what exactly can we expect from these trials, or are you going to smile at me and tell me its a surprise?" he added in looking at Haruka.

She put her finger to her mouth and smiled.

"Himitsu", Haruka said playfully, which meant Secret in japanese. "Nothing that would get you off your balance though, it's not like we're gonna make you dance in your suit", Haruka said with a small laugh.

"What weapons would you suggest besides the energy sword?"

She turned to face Katsu who seemed undecided as to what to try.

"Well considering I read your dossiers and what you favor, I'd suggest you try the twin saw daggers and the R5600 Battle rifle, it has high power at mild cost of accuracy because of the recoil, but if you can manage to control it, the average armor plating could be penetrated in about three well placed shots. Which is a lot for a battle rifle", Haruka said.

I'd also like to know, what weapons would you suggest?"

As Zhao spoke, Haruka also turned to face him.

"For Zhao I'd suggest the BK32 Plasma Assault Riffle, and perhaps the Neutron shield, it would complement your spear for close range combat and you can carry it as a bracelet on your suit's arm", Haruka said.

"Yes...that would work out," Zhao said, thinking it through in his mind. A little defence and an extra gun couldn't hurt. "Well, it looks like for the most part, we're prepared. How about you get in that mech of yours after you select a weapon or two and start training? I think I speak for everyone when I say that we're all eager to say how the mechs perform," he said to Haruka.

Xaiver smiled at her smile and laughed at the thought of Nova dancing. He looked over at Nova after his random thought.

Don't worry Nova, its almost showtime for us.

"Well, it looks like for the most part, we're prepared. How about you get in that mech of yours after you select a weapon or two and start training? I think I speak for everyone when I say that we're all eager to say how the mechs perform,"

Xaiver laughed and nodded in agreement at Zhao's statement.

"Try not to make us look too bad Haruka, and good luck out there." Xaiver said with a smile.

Kurt "Konig" Heutelmann strided down the hall of the battle-suit base he was assigned to.

His booted feet echoed louder then anyone elses in the hall, and everyone gave him a path, clearly intimidated by his presence.

The gentle hiss of his gas mask helped him keep a steady pace as he searched for the right room.

Kurt grabbed a technician who was passing by, by the shoulder.

He yanked the man to the side and said loudly,

"Wo ist Frau-Kommandir Suzuhara?"

The puzzled look on the technician's face reminded Kurt of his current location. He grunted and let go of the man's shoulder.

"Where is Commander Suzuhara?"

The tech pointed a shaky finger to a door about 3 meters down the hall.

Kurt nodded, "Danke."

The merc walked the way to the door, opened it, and stepped in carefully. He needed to check if this was the right room.

He saw 3 men and a women, who happened to match the description of his new assignment.

"Are you Suzuhara?" He said, pointing to the women.


you very much

Zhao was becoming increasingly aware of a gentle hissing sound. He then turned at the sound of the door to the room being open, and saw a man enter that reminded Zhao alot of Darth Vader; the man even had a gas mask on his face.

"Are you Suzuhara?"

Zhao could tell the man was German by his accent. "Who the hell are you?" Zhao asked roughly, becoming suspicious of the masked man. "And why are you here?"

Haruka turned over to the door on the far side of the room as a man walked in, his boots were making noise and she heard a familiar sound coming from what she assumed was a gas mask.

"Welcome Kurt", Haruka said smiling at him and then motioned the others so they'd put attention. "This gentleman here is Kurt Heutelmann. Perhaps some of you have heard of him as he's a famed mercenary in the circles of the PMCs. He was suggested by General Ramirez as a valuable member of out unit".

Haruka then stood up and motioned Roman so he would stand up soon as she would be getting on her battle suit as soon as her name was called.

"This is the elite team we talked to you about Kurt, all of them are the top pilots in the MDN, I'm sure you'll find yourself right at home", Haruka said. "The time for the tests have arrived, I'll be going in first. You might want to take this time to exam the armory Kurt and also check the status of your battle suit unless you take my word for it that it's in pristine condition".

Haruka walked over to a small elevator that would lift her to the cockpit of the Aegis 11. She looked back to them.

"Take the elevator over there to go to the floor we were just on, the room on the left is the observation room. You'll find Takahashi-san there, you can observe with him. He's known me all my life, he's a dear friend of my father", Haruka said and her elevator began rising to take her to the top.

She got there and began changing out of sight of everyone. Putting on her pilot suit which looked like a jumpsuit but armored.

(Think the ones like in Evangelion or Gundam, all pilots also wear helmets)

"Who the hell are you?"

"This is the elite team we talked to you about Kurt, all of them are the top pilots in the MDN, I'm sure you'll find yourself right at home", Haruka said. "The time for the tests have arrived, I'll be going in first. You might want to take this time to exam the armory Kurt and also check the status of your battle suit unless you take my word for it that it's in pristine condition".


Kurt nodded and then looked to the man who had spoken first, Zhao, according to the pictures in the dossier given to Kurt beforehand.

"I suppose that answers your question..."

He chuckled to himself and immediatley turned to the right, looking at the armory.

Kurt shook his head, "Hmmm...."

He considered his own weaponry as he looked at the data files of the different equipment.

"....I think I'll be fine. Let's get this over with."

"Take the elevator over there to go to the floor we were just on, the room on the left is the observation room. You'll find Takahashi-san there, you can observe with him. He's known me all my life, he's a dear friend of my father's."

Kurt nodded an affirmative.

"Why thank you," Haruka replied to Roman, who in turn smiled back.

"Himitsu," Haruka said playfully to Xaiver, making Roman laugh as he knew what the word meant. "Nothing that would get you off your balance though, it's not like we're gonna make you dance in your suit," Haruka said with a small laugh.

"Tried that once, lost a bet," Roman said, laughing to himself, making reference to his picture of him being almost literally all pink from losing a bet; from earlier, but saying no more on the subject.

"Are you Suzuhara?" Roman heard called out, as he looked over and saw an armored man standing in the hangar. Roman positioning himself in front of Haruka slightly, to prevent any harm from befalling her if the man was there to do some kind of dirty work for the Chinese Allies, or even the European Powers. Not that he knew how someone intent on doing dirty work would even get into the secure underwater facility ((I think that's right)), he still wasn't taking chances with an armored man calling out Haruka's name.

"Welcome Kurt," Haruka said. smiling at him, motioning to make them pay attention. "This gentleman here is Kurt Heutelmann. Perhaps some of you have heard of him as he's a famed mercenary in the circles of the PMCs. He was suggested by General Ramirez as a valuable member of out unit."

At this statement Roman relaxed, but unknowingly kept in front of Haruka, primarily out of protective instinct. Haruka made a motion for Roman to get off of her mech's foot, as she would be leaving to do the test runs soon, and carrying Roman around on Aegis 11's foot would pose a bit of an inconvenience. Roman slid off, scratching the back of his head, and smiling.

"Take the elevator over there to go to the floor we were just on, the room on the left is the observation room. You'll find Takahashi-san there, you can observe with him. He's known me all my life, he's a dear friend of my father," Haruka said, to everyone Roman assumed, bowing slightly out of courtesy to Haruka as she was to depart for her suit.

Roman proceeded to the observation room, whether the others were going there yet or not.

Once in the room he smiled, and nodded to Takahashi in acknowledgment, and proceeded to, well, observe. It would be a wonder to finally see Aegis 11, and Haruka at work, Roman thought, a shy smile spreading across his face as he payed attention to the same screen Takahashi was looking at.

Roman blinked as he realized something, "She's still got my coat.....Oh well, if she likes it that much, she can keep it. I can get another." He said quietly to himself, his shy smile spreading into a wry grin.

Katsu nodded and headed for the elevator but not before stopping and looking at the armored man known as Kurt.

He looks quite intimidating. He needs to be watched, just in case he tries anything.

He turned around again and got up on the elevator and then headed for the observation room. Once inside he nodded to Takahashi and stood next to Roman and then looked down at the screen that Roman and Takahashi were looking at.

It would be interesting to see Haruka and the Aegis 11 train. That much he was certain of.

"I suppose that answers your question..."

Zhao relaxed his guard. "Yes, I suppose it does," he said, with the shadow of a grin on his face.

"Take the elevator over there to go to the floor we were just on, the room on the left is the observation room. You'll find Takahashi-san there, you can observe with him. He's known me all my life, he's a dear friend of my father's."

Zhao nodded in acknowledgment. He went up the elevator to the observatory and looked at the screen that would show the mech in action. He couldn't wait to see some good old mech combat, even if he didn't get to pilot right away.

Xaiver followed everyone into the elevator and made his way to the observatory. He looked around at all the pilots including the new guy Kurt. He looked like he just came from a shooting from a movie as some evil villain. He couldn't help but feel like everyone still felt awkward towards one another as no one was speaking.

"So did anyone bring the popcorn?" he said jokingly.

Haruka took a breath as she sat down on the pilot seat of the Aegis 11 and put her hands on the controls.

"Lets do this my friend", Haruka said and exhaled.

"Aegis 11 test underway, prepare for launch countdown"

Haruka tightened her grip as the countdown began.

"10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1... launch!"

The Aegis 11 sped through the platform onto a huge hangar structure with several combat drones everywhere as well as other battle suits that were not manned. There were also building like structures. The whole scenery changed into a virtual recreation of Tokyo city. Haruka stood in the Aegis 11 not moving. She had her eyes closed for a moment. The drones closing in to her from the sky and the ground.

Haruka opened her eyes and immediately the Aegis 11 took a step back and bended it's knees, suddenly charging forward and turning on her energy sword. She sliced one of the battle suits across the chest and gave a round house kick to the other. As the other spun around she took the chance and impaled the battle suit before rushing forward to the drones in the air. She jumped in the air spreading the wings and began flying around, dodging the missiles fired by the drones. She then fired the multiple jericho that swarmed around her in a perfect circle and spread around to it's multiple targets blowing them up.

She then returned to the ground running around the streets at full speed as gracefully as she could do it. Takahashi then looked at Roman and the others.

"Haruka's mother taught her ballet dancing. She was a great dancer and combined with the skill of japanese Kendo and chinese martial arts, it made her a great candidate for battle suit operating", Takahashi said. "You'll never see her dance though, after her mom died..."

Haruka began dodging the incoming missiles and bullets by using graceful jumps, rolls and flips, also slicing through each battle suit in her way. She also kicked and threw some of them before taking them out with her energy sword. She then looked up as she saw in her HUD that there was a sniper in the far northeast corner. She then wall-jumped and landed on the top of a building taking out her rifle. She then fired three single bullets and hit the head of the battle suit, thus ending the excersize.

"New personal record Haruka", Takahashi said. "As expected".

Haruka grinned.

"I'll be back into the observation room in five minutes, keep my equipment ready, I need to analize the data of my teammates", Haruka said. Takahashi simply nodded.

The Aegis 11 was shortly after back at the hangar with the other battle suits. She did not however, get out of her pilot suit as there wasn't much time before the next test started. And so she put on her scientist robe and went back to the lab in her jumpsuit.

She went inside the observation room and looked at everyone.

"I hope I didn't disappoint you guys too much", Haruka said. "Xaivier, you might want to go ahead and suit up, you're next, whenever you're ready, we'll start".

Xaiver was soon quiet as soon as he saw Haruka in action. He was lost for words as he watched Aegis 11 at work. It truly was a thing of beauty to watch in Xaiver's mind.

"You'll never see her dance though, after her mom died..."

Xaiver nodded in agreement and added, "Its hard to do certain things when we're reminded of the ones we lost" he said rather coldly.

He pushed the past quickly aside and went back to watching Haruka's test run. He cheered her on inside his head just as he planned to do for everyone else. Her performance was certainly going to be hard to follow up on but that wasn't going to bother him. He was going to show everyone else just what he could do...and why his callsign was Psycho. He couldn't help but let out a small snicker at that. Before he had time to continue thinking about the test runs, Haruka walked into the room.

"I hope I didn't disappoint you guys too much", Haruka said. "Xaivier, you might want to go ahead and suit up, you're next, whenever you're ready, we'll start".

"Awesome job out there by the way. I'll do my best to continue the awesome streak." he said with a smile.

Xaiver exited the observation area and took the elevator back down. Within a matter of minutes he was fully suited up in his green armored pilot suit. He placed the matching green helmet over his face and looked over to Nova.

Its showtime

Soon he was sitting in the pilot seat of Nova.

"Alright I'm all ready to go...oh and make sure you hold onto something in case you get blown away."

Kurt silently followed the group to the observation room, msot of the time staying to the back so he could observe the members. He needed to figure them out, their habits, weaknesses, strengths, pyschological profiles, anything and everything that he could rely on during the battle...

....or count on if the situation went south.

It would take time before he'd trust these people. The past wars had already killed alot of those Kurt would trust. Maybe he'd get lucky.

He stood next to the window as the test was about to begin.

"So did anyone bring the popcorn?"

Kurt turned his head to look at the man, who's face rung a bell, but the dossier file's name for him was not remembered.

"Hmm. Ja."

A strange response, even to Kurt, but he couldn't think of much else to say at the moment. He was more focused on the task at hand.

"You'll never see her dance though, after her mom died..."

Kurt could understand such pain all too well, especially as the images of his Father's gruesome death filled his mind. He needed to find peace. They all needed to find a peace. To move forward.

"...perhaps someday she will do so again."

Needless to say, he was impressed by Suzuhara's record in the virtual battle recreation area. Perhaps the MDN wasn't the poorly-trained cannon fodder the European Powers had always played them out to be.

Suddenly, the man who cracked the joke, Xaiver, moved out of the room for his session in what Kurt just nicknamed 'the zone.' He crossed his arms and peered out the window awaiting the results.

"So did anyone bring the popcorn?" Roman barely even flinched as Xaiver said this, his eyes fixated on the screen.

"Hmm? Oh, yeah, no, sorry," Roman replied in a droning monotone, as he was completely engrossed at the moment.

As the test run went on, Roman began to smile, all the while it grew bigger the more impressed he became with Haruka's performance.

"Haruka's mother taught her ballet dancing. She was a great dancer and combined with the skill of Japanese Kendo and Chinese martial arts, it made her a great candidate for battle suit operating," Takahashi told them.

"Miss Haruka seems to be a very talented young lady to achieve such an accomplishment as combining three separate elements from separate cultures, and regions of the world into her Battle Suit combat," Roman complimented.

"You'll never see her dance though, after her mom died..." Takahashi told them.

"...perhaps someday she will do so again." The armored man Kurt replied, Roman nodding in agreement.

"Yes, that is something I must agree upon. Maybe I'll be fortunate enough to be graced with a dance with her, too," he reminisced, saying the second part more quietly. Roman wasn't a dancer, but being a fencer gave him enough grace to compensate for that.

Haruka came into the observation room, still in her jumpsuit, which made Roman raise his eyebrows, doing a once over, but restraining himself (( )). "I hope I didn't disappoint you guys too much," Haruka said.

He clapped as she entered the room, and complimented with a laugh, "Not at all! -Just as you are- ((Corny, I know. But he didn't say it too loudly.)), very beautiful Miss Haruka, as I, uh...we, all expected. Truly a wonderful performance, I only hope I can do half as good, seeing as I most definitely won't be as graceful!"

"Xaivier, you might want to go ahead and suit up, you're next, whenever you're ready, we'll start." Haruka said to Xaiver, making Roman look at his friend with a teasing grin.

"Yes, 'impress' us, friend," he teased, and prodded.

As Xaiver left, Roman looked back over at Haruka with a smile, backing away from his spot, and saying politely, "You can have this spot Miss Haruka, seeing as it's right next to Takahashi, and you're both 'analyzing' us."


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."

Zhao was even more silent than usual with Haruka's performance. Something about it made Haruka's mech seem angelic. Probably those wings on the back, Zhao thought.

"Haruka's mother taught her ballet dancing. She was a great dancer and combined with the skill of Japanese Kendo and Chinese martial arts, it made her a great candidate for battle suit operating,"

Zhao managed a small grin upon hearing Haruka knew Chinese martial arts. "Maybe I should spar with her," he said. "I do happen to know some Kung Fu myself."

"You'll never see her dance though, after her mom died..."

Zhao winced a bit. He knew a loss in the family could cause great pain, though he was sure the pain of constantly being ostracized probably was almost just as bad. Quite impressive, that girl hides her pain away extremely well, he thought. Much like himself.

"I hope I didn't disappoint you guys too much,"

"Jesus, woman, that had to be the most impressive run I've ever seen. I'm glad you're on our side. You ought to give those Chinese b******s hell," Zhao praised, being his usual foul-mouthed self, and showing emotion for one of the few times in his life.

"Xaivier, you might want to go ahead and suit up, you're next, whenever you're ready, we'll start."

"Yeah, get your run done and over with so the rest of us can go," Zhao said in all seriousness.

You can have this spot Miss Haruka, seeing as it's right next to Takahashi, and you're both 'analyzing' us."

Oh, seems like Roman admires Haruka, Zhao thought with mild bemusement. Judging by how Roman had praised Haruka in such a kind manner, Zhao couldn't help but wonder if that admiration was actually a genuine crush. By Roman's praise and gentleman-like attitude towards Haruka, Zhao believed that his supposition was likely, though he decided not to get involved. Crushes, to him, always held some type of odd humor; he found it funny in a dark way how break-ups happened, and thought it even more hilarious when a couple made up, and how the one person with the crush would do anything for the other unaware one. He did, however, smirk at Roman after he offered Haruka the seat - though on Zhao's face, a smirk looked almost evil.

"Nova test underway, prepare for launch countdown"

Xaiver took a deep breath like he always did before something important. He smiled as he heard the countdown begin. He turned on the music player he built into Nova to get himself pumped for the test run.

"3...2...1...launch"

His test visually began just like Haruka's did. As soon as Nova's feet hit the ground he charged right at the unmanned battle suits without any weapons. He hit the first battle suit he saw with an uppercut and followed up with a roundhouse kick. Before it could stand back up, Nova quickly stepped on the suit's head crushing it into the ground. He turned around to see another battle suit with an energy sword in its hand. The suit swung the sword vertically only to have Nova grab it's wrist. Nova twisted its arm behind its back and plunged the sword into it. He turned to see the next battle suit a few yards away from him with a spear in its hand. Nova pointed at the suit and then brought both his hands to his pelvis, taunting the suit. He activated his boosters and charged the battle suit with incredible speeds. He did a bicycle kick on it and knocked the spear away. Nova pulled out two SMGs, compliments of Haruka and quickly finished the suit off. He continued firing the smgs and manged to take out two riflemen with them. Nova placed the smgs back on his sides and crossed his arms in front of his chest. Xaiver smiled from inside, knowing how cool this was going to look and activated his custom made energy swords. Nova ran at the next target and leaped into the air with his thrusters. He brought both his swords down on the battle suit and cut off both its arms. He stabbed the suit with his left hand and kicked the suit to the ground. A battle suit tried to cut him with an energy sword but was quickly blocked by Nova. Nova shook his head and wagged his finger at the battle suit as he took the suit's head off with his left hand. Sensing another enemy from behind, Nova quickly ducked down just in time toe see another sword go over his head. He sweep kicked the battle suit causing it to fall. Before it even had a chance it hit the ground, Nova had already sliced it in half. He turned back around to see a much larger battle suit wielding and axe and a shield. The battle suit swung its mighty axe down forcing Nova to roll away. He flipped backwards before the suit had a chance to smash Nova in with its shield. Nova jumped over the suit's next attack and threw the energy sword in his left hand at the battle suits axe arm. Xaiver smiled as he watched the things right arm drop to the ground. Nova pulled out his battle rifle and started running at the battle suit. He dove to the ground and slid under the battle suit, firing as he went past its legs. Nova plunged the energy sword in his right hand into the suit's back to stop himself. He jumped up into the air and shot the battle suit in the back of the head. Nova dove backwards from the incoming attack of the suit's shield arm. He looked at the one armed mech, then the battle axe, and then back to the mech. He charged one last time at his foe and hit hit in the chest with a powerful dropkick. The battle suit was launched right into its own battle axe finishing it off for good. Xaiver walked up to it and pulled the one sword from its back. He was just about to get his second sword when his HUD started blinking. Nova turned around to see one last battle suit. Xaiver let out a sigh and shook his head. Nova stabbed the the battle suit with his sword and lifted it into the air. Nova raised his left arm enough to have his battle rifle sitting right in front of the mech's face. Nova pulled the trigger and removed the sword. He collected his weapons and laughed at how much fun that was. He did a quick victory dance.

"Hey I thought you said we weren't gonna dance in our suits." Xaiver said with a chuckle.

Within a few minutes he was back in the observation room with the others.

"That was so much fun!" Xaiver said excitedly raising his right arm into the air waiting for a high five. "So how'd I do?!?!" he said trying not to jump for joy.

((Excuse the lame shortness, but I felt Roman would be one of the ones to give Xaiver the high five. Meh.))

"That was so much fun!" Xaiver said, as he reentered the observation room, Roman couldn't help but smile at his friend's exuberance. "So how'd I do?!?!" Xaiver asked, Roman reacting with a high five to the younger man's raised hand.

"Bad, worst score I've seen in a long time," Roman said, trying to tease Xaiver a bit more.

"Nah, you did good from my standpoint, but the 'real' observers might have something different to say," Roman told him, once again ringing his arm around Xaiver's neck, proud for the excited fellow.

"So how'd I do?!?!"

"You did very well. You fight like how I would expect soldiers would," Zhao said, sinking back into his cold, emotionless mood. "I think we should just let you wreak havoc by yourself if we ever have to go behind enemy lines." Zhao had gained respect for Xaiver - he seemed undisciplined to Zhao at first, but he now realized that it was just a personality trait of Xaiver. Zhao turned to Roman. "I believe you're next, then it's Katsu, then me. Make it quick, I want to get into my mech again."

"Nah, you did good from my standpoint, but the 'real' observers might have something different to say," Roman told him, once again ringing his arm around Xaiver's neck, proud for the excited fellow.

"I'm sure they'll use the words "awesome" and "amazing" in their review." Xaiver said smiling to Roman, and then over to Haruka.

"I think we should just let you wreak havoc by yourself if we ever have to go behind enemy lines."

"Well when your callsign is Psycho, you gotta fill the part. Don't worry I'll be sure to leave you guys some kills."

"I believe you're next, then it's Katsu, then me. Make it quick, I want to get into my mech again."


"Yeah, I wanna see what you plan on bringing to the table Big Guy," Xaiver said to his friend.

Kurt chuckled as he watched the group converse on Xaivier's run.

"Let's hope you can keep the same intensity on the battlefield."

"I believe you're next, then it's Katsu, then me. Make it quick, I want to get into my mech again."

"Verdammt. I must be last."


you very much

"Not at all! -Just as you are-, very beautiful Miss Haruka, as I, uh...we, all expected. Truly a wonderful performance, I only hope I can do half as good, seeing as I most definitely won't be as graceful!"

"Why thank you Roman, glad to hear that, and I'm sure you're just being modest", Haruka said as she turned to the others.

"Jesus, woman, that had to be the most impressive run I've ever seen. I'm glad you're on our side. You ought to give those Chinese b******s hell," Zhao praised, being his usual foul-mouthed self, and showing emotion for one of the few times in his life.

"Thanks a lot Zhao, I can't wait to see you in action too", Haruka said with a smile and then walked over to Takahashi.

"You can have this spot Miss Haruka, seeing as it's right next to Takahashi, and you're both 'analyzing' us."

"Don't mind if I do then", Haruka said as she stood next to Takahashi who simply gave her a wink as if to tell her she did great as always.

Xaivier's test started and she watched intently. She realized Xaivier was quite agile and did martial arts moves in his mech pretty darn well. He had pretty much dominated the training course and exceeded Takahashi's calculations.

"I told you these guys weren't boys with toys Takahashi-san", Haruka said in japanese and the man chuckled a bit as he replied. "Indeed you did".

"Hey I thought you said we weren't gonna dance in our suits." Xaiver said with a chuckle.

"That was so much fun!" Xaiver said excitedly raising his right arm into the air waiting for a high five. "So how'd I do?!?!"


Haruka simply laughed at his victory dance and his words for the dancing. She then looked over as he walked in and gave him a thumbs up.

"Pretty impressive work Xaivier, you got you balance and weight distribution down prefectly", Haruka said.

She then turned to Roman who was standing next to her.

"It's your turn Roman, gambate ne?", Haruka said, the last part was 'do your best ok?' in japanese.

((Yes, I am a bit 'busy' you could say. Didn't have access to my computer for a couple days, then I got sidetracked when I did have access. But! I promise, I will be posting within the next 24 hours -At least from the time I post this post that is [3:45 p.m. - My time]. I do apologise though for making you people wait, but life is life, and there's not much you can do about it *shrugs*. Gomennasai!))

((Alrighty Than! I've finally gotten around to posting!))

"Why thank you Roman, glad to hear that, and I'm sure you're just being modest," Haruka said to Roman, he in turn smiled shyly and replied.

"Modesty is something I'm good at, but honesty is too. My grace in a early-type model like Lævateinn 2 is minimal, at best."

After Roman had congratulated Xaiver, Haruka turned to him as he stood next to her, saying, "It's your turn Roman, gambate ne?"

Roman turned to Haruka with a smile, and bowed slightly, replying in Japanese, "Ganbarimasu." (Which is 'I will do my best', or 'I will try hard' in Japanese.)

He swiftly left the observation room, heading to where he could change into his pilot jumpsuit.

Sme time later Roman was dressed, it had taken him longer than the others due to his jumpsuit's more archaic design than the others.

Roman took his seat in the chest of the Lævateinn 2, the older cockpit design flashing to life as he began flipping switches. Roman reached up, and retrieved a small free floating visor, which was attached to two bulkier holding arms. He slipped the visor over his helmet, and latched it into sockets in his helmet.

Everything was dark, the world around him was only the hum of his suit's console, his hands running seamlessly over the intricate controls, knowing each button's location, each switch's use, even if he couldn't see them. His fingers were bare, the jumpsuit's fingers being tailored off, as he needed his own skin's nerves to know where things were. He'd trained months just to know how to use the older suit's controls, and trained years to use the visor, all while having to use touch, and memory to use the controls, and after awhile everything just became hardwired, like swimming, or even moving, it became a thoughtless process.

Roman's head swiveled up as he heard the white noise of his suit's console interrupted.

"Lævateinn 2 test underway, prepare for launch countdown."

Roman flipped a switch, a set of large cords punching into the back of his helmet, and the visor activating. Roman's world was brighter now, as he blinked a few times to adjust his eyes, he looked around.

Outside one could see the Lævateinn 2 suddenly jerk to life, the cycloptic eye lighting up, and swiveling about as it seemed to be looking around, almost like the suit were alive. Then the head moved. Inside Roman was too moving his head, as the holding arms moved with his head motions the suit's head moved with his own, a part of the visor's purpose was to allow for full control of the suit's head, and visionary systems, allowing a very strange experience of almost being one's suit, or at least seeing from the suit's perspective. The visor was a new design for early-type models, like the Lævateinn 2, since a lot of late-type models were having their cockpits put in the head now. A very strategically unintelligent move, Roman thought, as chest cockpit suits had more protection, or at least, his did.

"10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1... launch!"

Roman's hands flashed across Lævateinn 2's console, the suit lifting it's weight up in a more ready posture, and stepping forward ponderously. Once they were out in the test run facility, Roman looked around, his suit mimicing his head's motions, and the cycloptic eye roving about menacingly. It was a virtual environment, urban, one of the Lævateinn 2's specialties. Too bad the 'environment' wasn't real, or else he be able to use the buildings, and surroundings to his advantage, like he normally would; but blowing up the support structures for the virtual buildings in here wouldn't allow him to crush the real unmanned Battle Suits.

He'd just have to do some fast hit-and-run activity.

With his quick evaluation Roman sped off in the Lævateinn 2, activating it's high-end thrusters, it moved amazingly fast across the battlefield, heading towards the awaiting heavy drones, the Lævateinn 2 hurled it's arm forward, the long chain of mines in the arm snapping forward, the first two mines on the chain detaching, and flying toward the drones.

The Lævateinn 2's jet propulsion systems activated in it's shoulders, sending the suit off at breakneck speed, sideways, down a street amongst the buldings, an explosion erupting moments later as the mines went off, decimating the heavy drones. Roman's hands flicked across his suit's console, moving he suit in a very realistic manner.

The Lævateinn 2 turned, noticing two Battle Suits coming towards him, he released two more mines in front of him, on the ground, quite obviously, but unmanned suits were easy to fight, they were relatively stupid pretty much. Roman launched the Lævateinn 2 forward, between the two suits, and past them, turning around on a dime with it's jets, Roman made his suit push the other two forward, as they had reacted quite fast to his fly-by, but were unprepared for his actions, they stumbled back, one stepping on the active mines, the other mine erupting, and the two suits being engulfed in the explosions, the Lævateinn 2 speeding backwards with it's propulsion systems.

Roman made the Lævateinn 2 release the rest of the mines from the chain, and replace the handle on the suit. He pulled out his Durandal Light Shotgun, turning, and blowing away a Battle Suit with it, he deactivated his thrusters, the suit landing quite heavily, but well. He pumped the shotgun, as drones, and suits closed in, he fired, another suit down; pump, fire; three suits; pump, fire; one drone; pump, turn sharply, fire; four suits down; jab back with elbow; turn; smash suit's head with bottom of shotgun handle; pump, fire; two drones down; turn back to damaged suit, beat one more time with shotgun handle, knocking it to the ground; smash head with foot; five suits down.

Normally Roman would take the time to reload his shotgun, but he knew that this was a test run, and all he needed to do was perform well, and end the run on good time. His life wasn't necessarily at stake. So he replaced the shotgun, and got out his Fission Axe, the archaic weapon activating it's conduction system, and the blade beginning to glow, as it began super-heating, the combination of these two systems allowed for the axe to sever through almost anything, giving it it's name.

He activated his thrusters once more, the suit jumping up suddenly as it lifted from the ground ever-so-slightly, and the Lævateinn 2 sped forward, virtual dust kicking up behind it. Once more entered the streets of the fake city, seeking out the remaining drones, and suits, knowing full well he wouldn't need to use all of his armaments.

As he came into contact with single units he easily cut through them, but something bothered him, the lack of numbers. As Roman rounded a bend in the street, he came across a mediocratively large group, the remaining number of suits, and drones. They turned, and the few with armaments opened fire, Roman launching to the side out of the way down a street with his propulsion systems.

He waited, the suits, and drones pursuing, he drew them forward, methodically, exiting the fake city, he then suddenly sped away, only a few of the faster drones following as he went into moderate flight. One got too close as he was retreating, and with a swift barrel roll, he sliced the drone in two, kicking the other as it got near his leg, it losing control and slamming into the ground.

He reached the far edge of the test run facility, on a virtual hill overlooking the fake city. Roman's hands flashed across his console, wirelessly requesting one of Haruka's custom weapons that he's noticed, and procured before he'd entered his suit. The facility wall opened, like a large shelf, the Lævateinn 2 reached in, and grabbed the weapon inside. It was a large Gauss AM Sniper Cannon (The AM standing for Anti-Material). Roman looked down the scope, the suits and drones were still following him, but slowly, as they reached a familiar spot strewn with shredded Battle Suits, and drones, he zeroed in n a small metallic disc on the ground near the outside of the circle of dead suits.

Roman being trained in the use of firearms held his breath, though he didn't need to, it was instinctive, and the reality of his visor often lead him to forget he was not the one doing the things he saw, only controlling them. The Lævateinn 2 pulled the trigger, the gun firing. A moderate 'Jjjnnnn' sound could be heard as the weapon quickly activated, and fired, and only milliseconds afterwards a minor 'thunnnnn', as the shell the cannon fired, broke the sound barrier near instantly from it's exit from the barrel of the gun.

The shell made contact with the disc, causing all the other discs to explode, catching the remaining group of suits, and drones in the explosion, one suit blowing apart, catching other suits, and drones in a hail of shrapnel, sending more shrapnel out from those suits, causing a chain. Soon, there were no more opponents, and all of the events that had occurred, and been unfolding happening within minutes of time.

Roman looked down at the Gauss Sniper, and studied it for a minute before smiling, he finally spoke for the firs time since entering the Lævateinn 2 over the comm, "Nice Haruka, as good as I'd said." Roman complimented Haruka's work in the design of the weapon he'd used.

Roman returned to the hangar in the Lævateinn 2, exiting the suit he patted it's outer shell with a smile, as he looked up at the suit's big optics eye.

Roman returned to the observation room, still in his jumpsuit, only with the helmet removed, he smiled, opening his arms wide, and said quite jubilantly, "Is the Lævateinn 2 impressive, or not!?"

He walked up to where he'd been standing next to Haruka, before he'd left, and looked down at her with a smile, saying, "I told you, no grace, simply hit-and-run tactics. Although, everyone seems to think that the Lævateinn 2 can't handle groups, since that's a hit-and-run unit's weakness, but I've gotten so used to similar tests pitting me against pack-tactics Battle Suits that I've turned my guerrilla warfare fighting style's weakness into a strength. I have more trouble with melee units than I do groups now."

Roman laughed, and paused, his smile fading somewhat, "anyway, enough with the boring talk. So, how'd I do!? Did I impress you as much as you did me? Although..."

Roman chuckled and shook his head as he thought this over for a second, "....I highly doubt I could have come close to impressing you, as much as you did me, Miss Haruka!"

((Meh, not one of my best fighting performances, but it'll have to do.))

Zhao watched Roman battle throughout the training exercise. He was impressed, but he got the feeling Roman was either holding back, or simply had untapped potential. For someone who could fight so professionally and effectively - and in an old model, too - Zhao considered the combat methods to be so....ordinary.

"Is the Lævateinn 2 impressive, or not!?"

"I am very impressed," Zhao responded. "But tell me, were you holding back? It seems you have so much potential, and while I am impressed, at the same time, your combat maneuvers and methods felt so ordinary to me."

Zhao then looked over to Katsu. "I think you've had more than enough time to mentally prepare yourself. How about you go ahead and show off your skills to us?"
