His eyes opened, lungs inhaled, torso rose. A few others were up as well, the showers were running, the buzz of electric razors was audible as well. It was time to complete the morning ritual once again. Shower, brush, shave, etc. While pulling on his military slacks the intercom came on with and ear splitting ring. He had ceased to jump at the sound a little after his first month. A few of the newer cadets groaned, trying to cover their ears from the sound. Cato had learned not long after he arrived that it was always better to wake up yourself than to be woken by the intercom.

"Wakeup time, breakfast will be served in the cafeteria as usual. Don't be late."

Cato pulled on the rest of his cadet uniform before beginning his walk to the food court.

Angela woke up looking around as some of the members shook her awake, "Wake up! you can't be late!!" A girl said, she nodded and gritted her teeth, As she did she got up washing her face and putting on her normal wear, she headed to the food court as her hands brushed against her clothing.

One she got her food she sat at a table alone and began to feast on what was in front of her.

Cato found his way through the familiar halls until the entrance of the chow hall loomed before him. Swiftly turning into the area. The cadet grabbed a tray and scooped some of the chow onto it, looking around a girl sitting alone at a table caught his eye. Probably new, or one of those antisocial ones. But nevertheless, as a descendant of the great general himself, everyone expected him to make them feel right at home.

"Might as well" he sighed to himself as he made his way to the almost empty table. He sat himself down next to the fellow cadet. Why not directly across? Well that was simple, psychology suggested that it was easier to talk, especially to strangers when direct eye contact was avoided.

"Hey, I'm Cato" he said casually, and almost disinterestedly.

"Angela" Angela said scooting away from him and biting into her apple not making eye contact, she just wanted to fight no more no less, she wasnt a people person since she hated talking to others, She cracked her neck and crossed her legs keeping a good amount of distance from 'Cato' "i like to be alone.." she said .

"Oh..." Antisocial it was. There weren't a very large amount of these in Ardean Academy. After all...officers have to interact with others every day on the job. "Well that's rather unfortunate, considering you'll probably be around others for the rest of your days in the military."

He lifted his spoon anticipating another bite of food, but set it back down before the spoon had made it halfway to his mouth. "There's some sort of two person team event today. Your teammate has to be the opposite sex. I was wondering if you'd like to be partners." Cato lifted a spoonful to his mouth, and after swallowing he continued.

"If you say no, you'll be auto assigned to someone anyway, and you'll probably end up with me since almost everyone else is already settled."

"Fine Whatever..." Angela said not caring as she finished her food and got up from the table throwing the apple seed away, she walked down the halls alone in silent going to practice since everyone was eating and she was just alone, she smiled and looked up at the ceiling before putting on some punching gloves.

Cato quickly finished up the rest of his food. He wasn't one to waste food, he'd need the energy anyway. He put his tray into the pile of dirty trays before pursuing Angela. Cato observed as his peer pulled on some gloves, punching gloves. Was training really all she did in her spare time? May as well ask her.

"Is this what you like to do in your spare time? Just train?" he approached her to get a closer look at what she was doing.

Angela listened to his words hiding deeper inside and going towards a punching bag that was shaking back and forth as she tried to hold it still, "Yes, If you have a problem speak now.." She said staring at him giving a glance that said, 'Dont screw with me', she looked back at the punching bag and began to swing at it, she knocked it far back and she quickly ducked rolling to the other side underneath the punching bag and punching it once more knocking it down, she didn't break a sweat all she did was pick it back up and adjusted it on its hook ready to go again.

"No, not at all. Go ahead." A smile crept onto Cato's face as he watched Angela's "self training course." "She's rather agile...strong, probably better than me as far as unarmed hand to hand combat goes...probably high level of stamina also." Cato regularly examined people, especially when they were training. Strengths, weaknesses, etc. It sort of became his habit to do so. Unfortunately, the intercom came on with a chime, putting an end to his observation session.

"All cadets, please report to the main training room. All cadets, report to the main training room."

"That's our call Angela." He said turning on his heels. "We wouldn't want to be late for the morning training session. After all, we're doing my favorite thing today..."

Angela nodded taking the boxing gloves off and setting them down, she followed far behind him, Favorite Thing? Something about this guy makes me think about what he is planning.. Angela thought getting lost into thought and staring at Cato qs they walked she wondered strongly about him and why he chose her to be his partner and didn't go chose some guy.

Cato made his way to the grand open space of the main training room. He was close to the last of the A's to stand in the attendance line.

"Hey Cato, where were you?" It was Alex Ardean. Cato and Alex were...friends to a point. More accurately Alex liked to sort of "cling" to him to a degree.

"Had some business to take care of. Sorry, were you looking for me?" Alex was tall, yet rather stocky in structure, 6'2 and somewhere around 190 pounds from muscle. Despite his rather intimidating composure, he was rather nice and likable...at least to his comrades.

"Oh...it's alright..." This obviously meant it was not alright.

"I'll make it up to you Alex. Do you want to train together in hand to hand on the weekend?"

Alex's face lightened up a bit. "Yeah, that would be great Cato."

Angela just watched rolling her eyes as she trailed behind Cato like a lost puppy, she somewhat hated that, she went to the S's of Attendance line and just stood there hearing Cato talk to another comrade, she listened to some other soldiers whisper to one another as she just stood quite waiting for something to happen.

"This is such a pain in the neck.." A girl next to her said, Maddie Soulless was her name she was a inch taller then Angela, she had red hair and weighed about 120 Lbs, she wasn't that buff nor strong, but was a secret friend of Angela since she was the only girl she would talk to, "I missed lunch Angela..." She whined.

"Well that's your fault.." Angela said handing Maddie a Granola bar, "Hurry up, if I have to do I lap, I don't care.." Angela said.

"Thank you!" Maddie said scuffing down the granola bar.

Cato eyed Angela as she talked with the girl standing next to her. "Not AS antisocial as I perceived her to be I suppose."

"Hm? Who's that you're lookin' at?" Alex followed Cato's gaze until he settled on the subject. A smile took over his fellow cadet's entire face. "Oooh Cato, didn't know you were the type to just go for it like that!" His statement was followed by laughter which was quickly interrupted by an

"ATTENTION!"

The sound of close to a hundred cadets' right arms hitting their sides followed by the silence of their left hands to their brows.

Captain Brace walked into the large space glancing at his clipboard. The Captain then proceed to call out the cadets' names in alphabetical order.

Angela watched him call out Peoples names, Maddie and her bot glanced looks before paying attention forward waiting foe the Captain to come up to them, she felt as some of her hair fell in her face but didn't mind it. Maddie looked sleepy and she was not the only one, like two other people were tired.Angela mind filled with thoughts and such as she blinked once every 3 minutes keeping her position nicely.

The Captain glanced at his clipboard once more before holding it to his side. "Glad to see you all here." Amusingly Captain Brace didn't look too happy. His face looked rather monotone with no signs of emotion whatsoever. "Let us begin. Please pair up in your TPTs. Two person Teams. If you haven't already chosen one, you will be assigned one promptly.

Caleb looked around for Angela, he had lost her in the midst of his mingling peers.

"Good luck Maddie" Angela said to her friend walking off, "You to Angie" Maddie said going and looking for a partner, Anglea knew Maddie wasn't the flexible nor that tough but she had a strong spirit so Angela could cheer her on that.

As she walked she went and looked for Cato, getting her shoulder brushed against by people made her fall almost, she disliked people bumping into her trying to rich where they needed to go that was one of the things she hated in life was rushing, She saw Cato wand walked up behind him, "Cato" she said standing still looking at him.


Maddie walked up to Alex tapping his shoulder slightly blushing from being shy, "Um, do you have a partner if not" she said gulping before finishing"Wanna be Partners?" she asked hoping for a 'yes'

Cato quickly snapped his head to face Angela on hearing her voice. "Oh, hello Angela."

Alex turned around feeling the tap on his shoulder. "Yeah, sure. Have we met before?"

Eyeing the other two, Cato kept his ears open for further instruction from the Captain which came soon after.

"Settle down now, get to your sim chairs so we can start part of the course."

The group gravitated towards the sim room witch contained hundreds of simulation chairs which connected directly to the brain allowing for the experience of more than lifelike experiences. "C'mon, let's get to our seats." Cato said grabbing Angela's arm and pulling here to a start towards the sim room. Alex followed suite, but much gentler and rather lead Maddie than pull her.

Angela felt the tug and jerked a little at the sudden pull, she was kinda shocked and wanted to pull back but after seeing how many people were behind them she didn't and just followed on.

Maddie looked at Alex,then answered his question, "Um no we haven't, I'm Maddie Soulless" She said smiling kindly at Alex, Angela waited for instructions.

Alex gave a smile back. "Alex, Alex Ardean" Yes, He was Cato's cousin. "Yeah, I guess you'd call me the 'direct descendant' or whatever of the General." He laughed a bit. "Not a lot of people suspect it though. Everyone thinks Cato represents him a lot more closely."



When Cato arrived at the sim room, and sat down in his assigned sim chair, the Captain spoke once more as the other cadets made their way to their own chairs.

"There's a touch pad on your right armrest, go to connections and link your sim to your partners. Quickly now."

His nimble fingers quickly found the menu he was looking for and he connected his sim with Angela before he jumped into the virtual world.

It was cold, the wind blew snowflakes around like a room full of confetti with a huge fan. The Cadet looked on his shoulder to find the weight of an mr-15 marksman's rifle. Cato patiently waited for Angela to appear soon.

Angela appeared next to Cato already loading her AK-47 machine gun and holding it with ease, she looked at Cato but her eyes were mostly on his gun, she admired the gun and smirked inside to herself, she quickly whipped her head forward to feel the Icy cold wind blow against her kin she just looked at him and back forward waiting for something to happen.

"That's Kinda cool, I'm with my best friend Angela I think she is Cato's Partner" Maddie said forming next to Alex in her gear and adjusting her glasses, she got out her sniper riffle and smirked at Alex, "I'm a sniper, I'm not usually in combat but you can always count on me having your back!" Maddie said waiting for directions.

The figure of the Captain appeared not 5 yards in front of him. "Your objective is to clear the village not too far ahead." He pointed towards a rather cozy looking settlement of houses a little more than a mile away. "You may or may not meet resistance, but civilians have not been cleared of the area. In other words, watch your fire. You all know the drill, search thoroughly or regret it later."

With that, the Captain disappeared, leaving Cato and Angela in silence.

"Well..." Cato said glancing at the nearby village. "Let's get to it." He started off at a brisk jog towards the houses.




After the Captain had spoken, Alex fed a clip into his KR combat shotgun, a grin spreading over his face. "I hope you can play primary sniper. Playing support won't help me out much."

Angela nodded and jogged also to the village she really did hate the snow yet liked it at the same time, she just hated how it messed with her vision, "Hmm, This shall be interesting.." Angela said to herself slightly as they went to the village closing in.

Maddie nodded, ready to go jogging and heading to the village ready for battle and staying silent.

Cato scoped out the area with the ACOG scope on his rifle. "Looks clear from here, but things never are as they seem anymore..." He switched the selector on his gun to 3 shot burst and folded the magnifier off to the side. "Let's make it quick, unfortunately the best way to clear this is to go in close quarters. Let's start at this building closest to us. You're at point, I'll cover you."




They shortly arrived at the village which seemed to almost bustle with hostile activity. "Can you scope out the area Maddie? I'm not sure what we can do...We're pretty outnumbered."

Angela nodded, "I swear to god don't let me down" Angela said walking in the building holding up her weapon with good aim going deeper into the building, she looked around, these are just targets, don't kill the civilians or villagers only the solders seems easy enough.. she thought to herself, she saw the first target which was a armed man, more like a solider she took out shot at him as he did with her but she easily dodged it getting a head shot.

Maddie nodded to Alex before quick scoping the area, "Right we are out numbered" She said to herself thinking about his words.

"Nimble..." "Keep moving, time is of the essence. Cato said hefting his rifle. Just then, a flash-bang rolled to a stop about 2 yards from his feet. "Flash!" he yelled looking in the other direction and covering his ears. The grenade went off just a fraction of a second later. Following the grenade two men, one with a shotgun and the other with a SMG entered into the hallway.

Cato turned around in a flash sending several bursts from the hip before diving for cover around the corner.




"Uh...Cato told me once that we should look at our options..." Alex said looking around on his person. Suddenly it seemed as if the problems of the world had been solved in his head. The cadet reached for his earpiece. "Cadet Alex Ardean to HQ."

"HQ, we hear you loud and clear."

"Requesting reinforcement drop and gunship support."

"Processing your request, hang in there Ardean."

Alex looked up at Maddie, a grin on his face.
