[First name is pronounced like Katrina]

Height:

Occupation:
"I never wanted this."
Drafted
Appearance:
Image
Rank:
Private
Personality:
Catrina is not like most soldiers because well she never wanted to be here in the first place. She just began being a solider and truthfully she dislikes being one. This is all because she actually has a very sweet nature to her. She hates when people are number one mad at her, yell at her, or even raise their voices at her. Second of all she is more of a lover than a fighter and prefers to settle things with words than with fighting. Third is that she easily hurt by people and often taken advantage of because of her mother-like behavior to people. She hates when people are hurting which pretty much turns on like this mother-like behavior and tries to help them as much as she can. Finally the rumor of red heads being well short temper isn't really a rumor with her since some times she can just quickly loose her cool when she has gone through a mass amount of stress. It's not that she means to it kind of just happens, when it happens she instantly feels bad about it, and fears that they might become angry with her about it. Often she is quick to apologize, saying sorry a lot, and trying to make up for things that she may have done wrong.

Finally you should know that Catrina is funny when she wants to be. She tries to be entertaining even though some times she feels hopeless and just feels like crying. Some people would call her over emotional but before all of this she was never really over emotional just kind of a boring individual who never really hide to cover up anything with jokes and fake smiles. All you really need to know is that this girl has a big heart, and tries to cover it with a protective shell so that no one can hurt her. Some times she isn't successful though and has a problem with letting people I to easy even though over the past few months she has become less social and more of a keeps-to-herself kind of girl.
Bio:
"When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?" - Coldplay

Catrina was born into what seemed at the time like a perfect family. She had an older brother, and two wonderful parents who tried their best to care for their daughter as much as they possibly could. Things got bad quickly though because once Catrina turned 6 her brother went to go fight since he was a solider and little did the family know that their loved one would not return to that house again. At age 6 her brother was lost in battle, supposedly he brought honor to her family, but she didn't care because she had just lost her brother. At age 8 her mother gave birth to her baby brother who she made sure to cherish as much as she could because she didn't know if he would be gone too one day. At age 10 when her brother, Raphael, was only 2 her mother and father started to pretty much abandon their family. No one really knew how long her parents wouldn't be home some times, but they knew. Catrina grew up being like a mother to her baby brother. From age 10 on she devoted most of her time for caring for her brother since she knew he wouldn't be able to do it until he got older. She juggled a mass amount of things at one time and no one really knew what was going on at home since she never talked about it. She hide everything from most people as much as she could. At age 13 her parents pretty much disowned her and her brother which soon enough made them orphanes, but quickly they were both adopted by loving caring parents. Still though Catrina felt it was her duty to always protect her brother and do a lot of things for him since she was now more like a mother to him.

Currently though she has been drafted into the army. Fearing the outcome of it because of what had happened to her older brother she doesn't know what to expect. Her family is worried about their adopted daughter and hopes that one day she would be able to do something else and won't continue to be in the army. Catrina hopes that one day she could actually do something she loves to do, and hopes that she could settle down. If things don't go terribly wrong for her since a lot of times she refuses to lift a gun. If it wasn't for her swift thoughts, intelligence, and persuasive behavior she probably wouldn't be in the army to much longer. Finally the last thing you should know is that the only reason she was drafted was because of a pervious war that left a shortage of soldier's which she was chosen to be in the Brown Wing Team.

Nationality:
Benjlakki

Fertaninn, Benjlakk's eastern region, contains wildlife and plant life relatively untouched by civilization, making this place a haven and paradise for people looking for an escape from most of the fuss that comes with politics. Many farmers, agricultural workers, biologists, and solar technicians call Fertaninn home. This is where Benjlakk's capital, the District of Justicra, is located. Here, the story begins.

Zechariah just put on his khaki, ceremonial military uniform for this day. It was the day of the conference to determine whether Benjlakk were to be involved in the war between Metargo and Mysticara. At the moment, Benjlakk was neutral, and the young sergeant doubted that would change. He then remembered the communication disk on his desk, which he picked up and began recording a voice message on it:

My dear Azalea,

Today is a big day for Benjlakk. Diplomacy Square is going to be packed with guests from around the world, as well as people from all over Benjlakk. While the festivities go on, a conference is going to be held on whom Benjlakk will side with, if at all. All the while, I am going to be out on patrol and stuff like that with the rest of my platoon of mech pilots. I hope the war is not out of hand where you live, knowing what has went on, so far.

Were it possible, right now, I would have loved to have brought you here, to Fertaninn, the most peaceful region in Benjlakk. There are plains and forests here which are relatively unspoiled by civilization. It is peaceful, an ideal place to live in if you want to avoid the fuss of politics and stuff of that nature. Well, it is close to time to patrol Diplomacy Square, so I should get going, now.

Yours forever and always,
Zechariah


Just then, as Zechariah sent the message, his older borther, Benjamin, whom was wearing a green uniform, knocked on the door and asked, "Hey, Zech! Who you calling?"

The Eagle of Mercy grinned and rolled his eyes. "Oh, it was someone I met at the Solar Tech Convention in Southeastern Fertaninn."

"Well, let's get going. The Diplomacy Square Festival is about to start, and we need to be there to keep any fights from happening!"

Zech laughed. "I know."

With that, he prepared his two laser pistols, setting them to stun before placing them in his holsters. The two brothers met up with the rest of the Brown Wing Team. Zechariah said to them, "Okay, As you all know, this is an event which will contain tons of people from many different places. Be on the lookout for anyone who winds up hostile towards each other and either escort them out or arrest them if the hostilities turn into a fight. That could happen, anywhere, anytime, especially with the war outside our borders. You all know what to do. Move out."

With members of the Brown Wing Team at other locations, the brothers chose to patrol a quieter spot of Diplomacy Square. So far, no fight broke out, yet they could never be too cautious. several moments passed before a familiar face, and an angry one, at that, appeared right at the area's entrance to diplomacy Square. It was Aaron Lextu, the Metargo soldier whom Zechariah fought during the previous war that occurred a couple years back. With Aaron were May and Kyle, Kyle behaving in a somewhat jolly mood due to the possibility of being able to party some.

Kyle spoke, first. "Hey, Aaron! Look at that! The Malachi Brothers! Kind of cool to see 'em in person, eh, buddy?"

Aaron gritted his teeth. "Hush, Private Scipio! We're here to escort the Princess, not for the party!" The leader of the Lion Team glanced back at Zechariah and posed the query, "I guess you're gonna gloat, now, over the several times you beat me?"

Aaron's words set Zechariah's teeth grinding. How dare that man treat war or combat like it was some game! "There's nothing to discuss with you, Aaron, so don't pretend there is!"

Aaron merely crossed his arms across his chest with, "Fine by me!"

Kyle laughed a little. "Looks like you've been told off, sergeant!"

"Whatever..." Aaron looked around and finally spotted the Princess coming their way to the entrance. "Good morning, your highness. It looks like you get to meet the famous Malachi Brothers early. One of them is Benjamin Malachi and the other is the so-called 'Eagle of Mercy', Zechariah Malachi."

It was when Aaron stepped to the side that Zechariah noticed the woman Aaron spoke to. Just the sight of her changed Zechariah's mood from angry to shocked, which showed in his eyes and facial expressions. He quite literally froze where he was. "Aza?"

Benjamin gave a confused look, "Zech, what's wrong? Is it really that big of a surprise she'd be here? Did you see her in person, before, or something?"

-----

Elsewhere, Saul, Calida, and Leonardo were making their way to the conference building where the diplomatic matters were to take place. Saul held Calida's hand while he mentioned some things required to know beforehand. "Now, Leo, we must be on our best behavior in front of the President of Benjlakk. Even one sign of disrespect towards anyone in the room could be used against us. In order to gain the Benjlakki people's approval, we cannot do anything they will frown upon. We are already in quite a pickle with how many towns and villages you burned to the ground, so far. We need to break the stalemate, and cannot afford to mess this up."

-----

Over at the refreshment section of Diplomacy Square, Gracchus and the rest of the Air and Ground Party from the Natrulkra Tribal Force were enjoying some coffee and/or wine. Gracchus personally enjoyed the friendly vibe of the place the most. The different cultures and people mixed into one intrigued him, as he was always curious. Granted, he knew he could not stay at that spot of Diplomacy Square for too long, so he told Isaac and Elisabeth. "I better head over to the conference building to be at the Chieftain's side, so no funny business while I'm gone, especially you, Isaac. Don't. Kill. Anyone. This isn't like Mysticara, where you could challenge somebody to a duel, you quite literally cannot kill a living person here in Benjlakk. If you do that, we'll have the Benjlakki Republic as an enemy before the conference even begins. That being said, don't bother hurting anyone while we're here."

The elf leader of the Air and Ground Party said what he had to and walked on over to the Chieftain, Malinha Nedilo, and escorted her. He was one of few people who knew of her spy network. "I don't know what you hope to achieve by having spies in Benjlakk, but you best hope they don't find out there are any in their country, as that will be construed as a violation of their neutrality."

Along the way, Gracchus noticed one of the Benjlakki Diplomats, Oriana Aspiral, heading the same direction. Wow! She's beautiful! He could not help but smile at the blue-haired woman, yet did not glance in her direction long, since staring was rude. He quickly recovered and had his eyes forward, again.

Azalea earlier that morning groaned as the maid messed with her hair, tugging into a neat braid and restarting every time Aza's frustrating hair would slip from the braid. Her maid helped her with getting ready since she would be possibly out in public a lot and she thought that it was her duty to make Azalea look like a Princess as much as she possibly could. At one point the maid had even shoved her a dress after finally getting Azalea's hair into a perfectly neat braid that she couldn't help but to want to unbraid it since it was annoying her. After receiving her dress from the maid she looked at it then back at the maid. "No way, blue is not my color." She said firmly and the maid glared at her once before taking the dress away from her. Azalea shifted from foot to foot uncomfortably before being shoved pretty much an exact replica of the blue dress except it was pink this time. "Better," She mumbled before taking it to her huge bathroom where she quickly changed into the pink dress. The pink dress has jewels placed along the top of her dress near the hem of it, another thing was that she had pink lace sleeves that went down to her wrists, and finally to top it all off her dress flowed down to a little past her knees.

Right about now though she was smoothly moving her way towards the entrance as she began to approach the few people who would be escorting her. Nearing Aaron, May, and Kyle she sighed softly while messing with the edge of her laced sleeve because the sleeve was bothering her. Upon approaching them she smiled gently at Aaron, waving a hand at him as he greeted her. As for May she rolled her eyes, sighing softly before nodding to the Princess. "Good morning, your highness." She copied Aaron as she moved away when Aaron moved. She looked at Kyle, smacking his shoulder gently when no one was looking. "Show the Princess some respect," She whispered to him then smiled a little at him as she looked away only to see the reaction that Zechariah had when he saw the Princess.

Catrina the new solider slowly walked over to the group, seeing Aaron surprised her because she didn't think Zechariah could be around him for that long, though, what did she know about the person who commanded her around. She slowly walked over to the group, looking the Princess over before practically hiding half way behind Benjamin who was standing near Zechariah. The Private looked only slightly nervous as her eyes scanned her surroundings, she had no idea what to do, or what was going on. When Azalea spoke she glanced over at the Princess, giving her a slightly curious look. Azalea looked straight at Zechariah as soon as she saw him. Her heart leaped at the sight of him. Oh no, not now he couldn't know that she was the Princess not right now. "Zech?" She breathed out as her arms dropped to her sides. She could not believe it, her heart was thudding so hard right now that she feared it bursting from her chest. She stepped forward once, blinking a few times as she reluctantly pulled her eyes away from Zechariah's and they traveled over to Benjamin. "We've um... we have met before." She told him, unsure of how to explain how they met. Her eyes traveled back over to Zechariah's and it was obvious that right now she was completely speechless.

Over almost everything you could hear May cracking up. May had never been the one to care about these kind of moments so when everything got really quite you could hear her softly laughing as she watched the two just stare at each other. It seemed so ridiculous to her just because well she has never stared at one person for so long before and because she had never been that interested in people. She coughed, calming down as she muttered, "Well this got confusing pretty quickly." She grinned a little, turning away and sighing softly as she ran a hand through her hair.




Clarissa, an angel, who was still up in heaven at this very moment was talking about her mission to a higher being than her. She knew this wouldn't be easy, everything she had worked for would be on pause just because now she had to travel down to help stop a war that was imminent. She sighed, extending her long gorgeous white wings, and then poof she had been teleported down where her mission was supposed to begin. The place she landed was a place behind a building where she knew no one was to see her. After teleporting there she folded her wings, willing them to disappear so no one saw her. Standing there for several moments she glanced around, debating what she had to do first, and then she finally started to make her way around the building out into the crowd of people that were flooding the streets.

Zechariah watched for a another moment or so, with Aaron cocking his head in a combination of confusion and annoyance. Kyle, in the meantime, already begun to have silent fantasies about what Zech and Aza might do in bed with each other if they chose to. Benjamin gave a stern look which demanded an explanation from his little brother.

Eventually, Zech noticed his older brother's glare and sighed as he glanced downwards. "Yes, we have met, before. It was at a solar tech convention in southeastern Fertaninn." He glanced upwards at his brother. "I did not even tell her I was a member of the Malachi family, or that I was the 'Eagle of Mercy'. I did not want her to focus on that. I wanted her to focus on the real me, which is not some legend or anything like that. I'm not just a skilled soldier with a reputation." Glaring at Aaron, he added, "And there is definitely more to me than just my achievements on the battlefield, or anything else the press focuses on. I don't even consider what I'll I did during the Metargo invasion upon Benjlakk, two years ago, to be anything honorable. I'm not someone who enjoys anything about combat." Zechariah glanced downwards, once more. "I'm just... Zechariah. I don't want to be treated like some legend or anything of the sort."

Benjamin sighed in a combination of pity and other feelings. "I know what you mean, Zech. It really stinks when people think what you are known for is all you are." The older Malachi brother next noticed Catrina behind her. He had this brother mentality towards her, considering the redhead like a little sister. "Hey, Catrina, you all right?"

Kyle finally got out of his fantasy world to register what he did hear from Zecahriah, specifically the last part. Kyle then nodded and said, "That's deep, man."

Aaron huffed in anger. To him, it did not change the fact his own reputation went down the drain. On the other hand, if what Zech said was true, then what happened was not to humiliate him, after all. Aaron became confused internally, yet never showed it on the outside. They only saw his cold exterior.

------

Saul did not say a word after his wife gave their son an explanation. He realized he has not been much of a father. Calling him 'Leo' was his way of trying to make it up to him with whatever time there was. Yet, he was unsure of how to begin. Calida was always better with the social matters.

------

Gracchus saw Oriana glaring daggers at an older man and was going to help her when Malinha already did that. Either way, he was glad a fight was avoided. "Oriana, huh? That's a nice name. I'm Gracchus, and this woman here is the Chieftain of Natrulkra, Malinha Nedilo." He used his magic to bring out ingredients and quickly make a mocha for the blue-haired diplomat. "Here, have a mocha."

Azalea messed with her braid, listening to what Zech was saying. At the moment she was still trying to figure out what exactly was happening right now. Everything was all happening so fast and she didn't know what to say or what to do when Zech started talking about he wanted her to see the real him not just some 'Eagle of Mercy' which she understood because she didn't want him to see her just as a princess. "Wow," She whispered mostly to herself. Slowly her eyes glanced around at everyone, stopping at Aaron who had this amazingly cold exterior even after Zechariah had said that. Sighing softly she looked at Zechariah again, "Could we speak? You know not in front of like this crowd of people?" She asked curiously then added, "not that I don't like you guys its just I would like to speak to him in private." Without even waiting she walked over to him, grabbing his wrist and tugging him away from the crowd.

Azalea held his wrist until they were out of ear shot of them so no one but the people who would pass them could hear what she was saying to him. "That was really deep," She said with a small smile. Messing with her laced sleeve nervously she glanced from the sleeve to Zechariah and back. Her heart thudding again like before as though it would just break from her chest. Unsure of what to say she finally looked at him longer than a few seconds. "Sorry for pulling you away from your group, but um Aaron was kind of freaking me out. He just had this like cold expression on your face even after you said that. I like Aaron, he can be a jerk some times, but he isn't necessarily all that bad." She shook her head, realizing she was totally getting off topic. "I'm sorry, I'm really nervous if you can't tell. Your not going to like flip out on me just for being the princess of Metargo and not telling you at all, are you?" Azalea asked, searching for something more to say to him.

While Azalea and Zechariah talked Catrina looked at Benjamin, gripping his wrist, and acting as if she was younger than she really was. "What's going on? I am like completely lost because I have no idea what is going on. What is Zechariah doing with the princess of Metargo?" She questioned him. Some times she thought of Benjamin as her older brother because he seemed to actually care about her. He would often help her out since she is just a Private and really has no idea what to do with a gun or anything that has to do with shooting it at some one or something. It's really not one of her strong points.

Finally May was thinking about going out for just one night without even really acting like she was a solider whom had no problem killing someone. She glanced over at Kyle, nudging him with her shoulder before walking over to Aaron's side and slinging her arm around his neck. "Whatcha thinking about? Or are you not thinking about anything because if so then you should lighten up a bit dear." She said with a small grin. She loved to mess with Aaron and a lot of the time she didn't really care if he got mad at her or not because she was kind of use to him being well a jerk. By this time she was kind of standing on her tippy toes due to the fact that he was pretty much almost a foot taller than she was and this was the only thing she could think of to get near his height without kneeling on a chair.

Zechariah looked up at Aza while listening. He did not even have time to respond when he was grabbed by the wrist. When told there was more to Aaron, he thought in his head about what more there could be to him. Either way, Zech noticed Azalea in a nervous state of mind. His heart beat at a more rapid pace when he heard the query, "Your not going to like flip out on me just for being the princess of Metargo and not telling you at all, are you?"

To which, the Benjlakki man smiled and said to her. "No way. I would not flip out at that. You are you, no one else." Were it not for being in a public area, he would have implanted a kiss after saying what he said. What held him back was, he knew people would not look highly upon their relationship, which would put a strain on both of them if the wrong person found out.

Of course, he looked around for some sort of place which would afford them more privacy. He found that in the form of two walls which were part of a previous structure which was no longer there. They were right at the corner of Diplomacy Square they were in, too, which made it ideal for him and Aza to have a little time to themselves. Once both he and her were out of sight, he knelt down a little so to stand somewhat close to her height, right before he kissed her on the cheek. He would have gone for the lips, yet with how hard it is to remove lipstick, neither of them would have been able to hide what they did. Once his lips parted from her cheeks, he handed her a leaf he had on his person.

"This came off a Vitaliik shrub, native to southeastern Fertaninn."

Zechariah knew Aza having possession of something from Benjlakk was risky, yet he figured the Metargo Kingdom would look at the leaf as a souvenir from her time at the District of Justicra. He could only hope he was right. Right now, however, he merely wanted to spend whatever time he could with her. Of course, this was probably enough time without causing suspicion. It was her call, though.

------

Meanwhile, Benmjamin shrugged and told Catrina, "The two of them met before, but the thing is... Zech held back info on him being the 'Eagle of Mercy', while Azalea withheld information on her being the Metargo Princess. That kind of explains how they reacted to each other. So you know, this is not going in the records. if any part of what we saw were to be made known to the public, it would not end well. We should probably continue patrolling, now."

Aaron's cold exterior was replaced with confusion as May held him by the neck. However, he knew what was asked. "Just what Zechariah said. It's a little confusing."

Kyle smirked and walked up in front of him. "What are you thinking about, now, Aaron?"

The leader of the Lion team glared at Kyle. "I can well imagine what you're thinking."

------

Saul did not say a word, though he did spot Leo offering his arm to Oriana. Saul placed a hand on his forehead, lowered his head, and said mostly to himself, "What is he doing...?"

Gracchus, meanwhile, glared at Leo for a brief moment. What was the Red Prince thinking? Jealousy became apparent, but was soon bottled up to avoid anyone getting any wrong ideas.

Azalea gently touched the cheek that he had kissed before taking the leaf that he was handing to her. He listened to where found it then looked at it with a small smile. He fingers moved smoothly over the leaf as she held it near to her then looked at Zechariah. "Can we spend time together? You don't think it would be too risky do you?" She asked, hoping that they could spend at least a little time with Zechariah before she had to regroup with her family. She thought about what she say and looked down at the leaf again, wondering why he gave her this leaf. Her smile grew a little as she looked at leaf and ran her fingers over it a few times while waiting for what his opinion was on them spending time together.




Catrina nodded understandingly then slowly released his wrist. She started to think for a moment, biting her lip gently she glanced up at Benjamin and smiled a little at him. "Lead the way, sir." She said politely as she ran her dainty fingers through her red locks. Catrina waited for Benjamin to lead the way so they could start their patrol and not seem like they knew something or so that they didn't really look too suspicious. She grinned at him, pushing a red lock from her face in an attempt to look as confident as possible even though her slightly over emotional personality was beginning to take over and she kind of just wanted to cry right now.




May laughed softly, shaking her head at Aaron's comment about how he could imagine what Kyle was thinking about. She looked at Aaron for a minute, keeping her arm around her neck before briefly glancing over at Kyle to wink at him. Her attention was quickly back to Aaron though, "That wasn't the question. I am pretty sure everyone on our team knows what Kyle is thinking, but no one really seems to know what you’re thinking." She pointed out. "At least other than the fact about what Zechariah said was confusing. I don't really see how it could be confusing." Shrugging once she thought about something. "I thought it was cute how he wanted the princess to like him for who he was and not because he was the 'Eagle of Mercy' or what not. It was really deep you know?" She balled up her fist, gently pressing it half way over her heart, then she tipped her head back and closed her eyes. Dramatically she sniffled a little before stopping what she was doing.

Her feet began to ache because she had to try and reach close to Aaron's height so she took her arm from around his neck and planted her feet on the ground. She smiled at Aaron, slowly taking a finger from both hands and putting them at the corner of Aaron's mouth, quickly lifting it up into a smile. "You should really stop looking so I don't know... cold?" She joked around, quickly moving her hands back to her side. She loved to mess with Aaron sometimes, and it for a reason she was unsure about. Gently she poked Aaron in the stomach then walked over to Kyle and leaned against him slightly, gently messing with a strand of his hair, and smirking a little. After a few moments of messing with Kyle's hair she stopped, sighing softly then she threw her hair up into a neat bun. "So what do you guys plan on doing while we wait for the princess? Are we just going to stand here or what?" She questioned with this kind of bored tone. Her previous smile was gone, replaced by this just neutral face.

Zechariah was going to say they should probably head back, but then he remembered the conference would most likely end up a somewhat long one, provided two sides go back and forth on the backlash, or if the two sides just reach an impasse. He held Azalea and said, "I think we should have a bit of time."

------

Kyle smirked. He knew May loved to mess with Aaron, and he had an idea as to the reason. although the wink he felt should have been directed at Aaron. Aaron, on the other hand, did not know what to think of the situation of his mouth being moved by May's fingers right before being poked in the stomach. It did not hurt, yet it made him feel awkward, for some reason.

Kyle held back laughter from his hair being messed with, plus tried to restrain from thinking dirty about being leaned on, as he knew Aaron could get jealous. Kyle knew what was going on, but Aaron did not. Now that Kyle thought about it, possibly the rest of the Lion Team knew, as well, since they have seen May and Aaron interact in this fashion quite frequently.

Once Aaron regained his posture, he snapped out of his awkward daze and said, "Well, we might as well do something, though we can't wander off too far, or we'll end up on a wild goose chase searching for the Princess, which would not be good in our report."

Kyle nodded in agreement. "I'll get us some drinks. Just tell me where you two are going, and I'll meet you there once I have the refreshments. I know what I'm getting, what about you?"

Aaron shrugged. "I guess I'll have a strawberry daiquiri. I never liked the bitter stuff. As for where to go, I was thinking maybe... hmm... quite frankly, I don't know what to do. Where do you think we should go, May, that is within this part of Diplomacy Square?"

It was then Kyle saw Max, which made him smile more genuinely, since that mechanic can be fun to talk to, despite the fact Max's bisexual behavior does make things a little awkward inwardly, even if it did not show. Once Kyle heard what May wanted, plus where she and Aaron would go, Kyle walked up to Max and waved while saying, "Hey, Max! Nice to see you, buddy! How've you been?" He waited until he heard Max's response before adding. "I'm getting a few drinks for Aaron, May , and I. WAnt to come with me for one, too? I hear the Benjlakki gals, especially from Fertaninn, the region we are in, are tough from working farms and solar technology, which makes for some hot figures."

------

Benjamin started right after Catrina said to lead the way. It was mostly uneventful until Ben noticed someone who seemed a little out of place. It was a white-haired girl, yet she did not look like a Metargo citizen, whom are known for a great many of them having nearly-colorless hair. He could not determine what was different, yet there was something. Perhaps it was just him. He did not even know he was glancing over in the direction of an angel, since the wings were not visible. Ben quickly recovered so not to stare or be rude and continued his patrol. Hmmm... that girl is rather cute...

------

Gracchus was inwardly upset that Orianna actually accepted. Of course, given his hearing being so great, he knew it was only to annoy the King of Metargo, but he still felt a pang of jealousy. He would definitely ask Orianna out before the Prince could have the chance to.

President Howard Anderson waited until all the people from both sides meant to be here were seated to speak, but when he was about to, he saw Oriana and Sir. Black already arguing about something off topic. Even the security officers shook their heads and groaned, since the two bickering diplomats were not making a good first impression. "That is quite enough, you two! We are not talking about bombs in this conference. This is about the war going on between Metargo and Mysticara. Would you be so kind as to stay on topic, and furthermore, wait for the meeting to come to order? Thank you."

The President then turned his attention forward. "Now, as I was about to say, the first thing you should know before we begin is that we do not take any foreign questioning of our neutrality lightly, as those who have doubts about it are more likely to violate it, and must be dealt with in the necessary manner to make the point clear. That being said, we shall begin.

On the possibility of allying with one of the two nations present, it should be noted that there are many Senators in Congress who are unwilling to side with a nation with a general who would massacre entire communities of civilians, neither do they feel it beneficial to side with a country experiencing the brunt of the massacres, as such tragedies could reach our own citizens and residents, leaving even children in our lands as part of the casualties. Such barbarism on the part of military personnel who order such genocide does not settle in the stomachs of the Benjlakki people. In order to convince the Senate in Congress either way, this issue especially must be addressed, the reason we have invited Leonardo Metargo, so he can to explain himself in this conference. First, though, we must have the views of our own citizens mentioned, which is where Oriana Aspiral comes in. Oriana, if you will..."

Saul listened intently to what all was being said. He knew this would be difficult, considering the circumstances. Regardless, he was not one to give up without trying.

Azalea smiled a bright, beautiful smile as she gently hugged Zechariah. Slowly she pulled away from him, holding one of his hand she sighed softly and began to hope that the conference would take quite a while. She looked at him, smiling at him then gently tugged on his hand. "Okay so where do you plan on us going then?" She asked curiously, lifting a single perfectly shaped eyebrow.




After telling Kyle that she wanted just anything with chocolate in or nothing that had a ton of alcohol in it she turned to Aaron, sighing softly. Also after saying where they were going to meet up with she ran a hand through her hair. "Well, want to lead the way Aaron? You seem to know this area better than I do." She said, shrugging once. She had only been here once before, maybe twice, but still she hasn't been here to many times and has no idea which way to take especially since there are a lot of people walking around.




Catrina stayed close to Benjamin, following near him as he led the patrol. She ran a hand through her hair, glancing down at her feet momentarily because her clumsy self decided that right about now near a bunch of people was the best time to trip. She grumbled as she tried to regain her foot, by this time she had lifted her head and glanced in the direction that Benjamin was looking. Noticing the girl who looked like she was completely lost and who looked like she had not been here before. She noted how Benjamin quickly looked away and continued walking. Speeding up slightly to catch up with him her eyes scanned over him then smiled a little. Shaking her head once she decided to leave it how it was so she fell back a little, though, made sure he was still within eyesight.

When she glanced over her shoulder because she heard a few people who were walking, say something angrily under their breath. She caught that same snowy white hair girl, lightly pushing her way through the crowd of people. Clarissa pushed lightly through people after she had caught the eye of a single solider who he thought could help her out a little. She smiled gently at Catrina as she passed by her and gently put her hand on Benjamin's shoulder. When her hand connected with his shoulder she sighed softly, biting her lip, and hoping that he wouldn't totally snap at her. "Excuse me," She said politely, glancing over her should momentarily to make sure she wasn't about to totally knock someone over. She noticed Catrina who had completely stopped and was now looking at Clarissa with this confused face.

Zechariah smiled gently, as was customary of him to do, as he gazed into Azalea's eyes, again. There this sense of calm whenever he saw those beautiful, light blue eyes. He thought for a moment and remembered something. "I know of a bakery, just outside Diplomacy Square, that is always open. Ben and I sometimes went there during our last stay in the District of Justicra, which was when we were first trained in handling Mechs. Everything at that bakery is made fresh, and the coffee is not bad, either. We can tell the head baker that I am giving you a tour of the city, so they won't even suspect anything. What do you say?"

------

Aaron shrugged. "Only because of a few previous visits, plus I've seen a map of the city that was made from a satellite photo via a military computer during our country's previous war. We never made it to the District of Justicra due to being pushed back by the Benjlakki, Zechariah among them, but I if I remember the details. If I remember right, there is a shooting game section not far from here. Let's go check it out."

Aaron held May's hand, not sure of why, and led her to what he was talking about. Soon enough, he found the game he was looking for. "This one is where you take a game pistol, designed to look real when shooting it while not doing any actual harm, and shoot at the target, which moves to another area of the screen when the shot hits. The location of the target that is hit determines the number of points you gain. If it's a bullseye, you gain ten points. There is a stop in in the middle of the session where you switch out the clip as fast as you can, as you are competing with other people who are participating the same time as you are, before shooting again. At the end of the whole session, the scores are compared. The winner is the person with the highest score, whose score is then compared to the scores of other previous winners that ever came about. If yours is a high score, you get a prize, which is usually some sort of souvenir. Want to have a go?"

------

Benjamin glanced in the white-haired girl's direction, noticing her. Upon that, his face went three shades of red. Oh, crud! What do I do? He turned around with a nervous look as he placed a hand behind his neck. "Uh... Y-yes, miss? A-anything I can help with?"

-------

Gracchus admired Oriana's passion for the discussion, which showed in his smile. He did not even notice her metallic arm. I think I'm in love...

Meanwhile, the President nodded towards Oriana and then glanced towards Leonardo. "Leonardo Metargo, will you please stand and speak?"

Azalea held onto him gently and debated if going to the bakery was a good idea or not. Finally after a few seconds of debating she nodded in agreement. "I like that idea, it seems like it is going to be good." She said softly then sighed softly. She hated that they had to keep their relationship a secret, but she knew there were reasons that they couldn't be seen as a couple. She looked down, a little upset about what she had just thought about. Some times she hated being a Princess because she couldn't really do exactly what she wanted. Sighing softly she looked at Zechariah with a small smile.




May blushed lightly while she held Aaron's hand as he lead her to where they were supposed to meet up with Kyle at after he got their refreshments. Upon seeing the game she smirked a little, looking over at Aaron. She listened to how they play the game and she nodded slowly as she took all of the information in. "Do I want to have a go?" She asked with a small grin. "Of course I do!" She giggled, rolling her eyes at him. She gently pushed him with her open hand and gently bit her lip. Releasing her lip she finally said, "I'm totally going to beat you at this game." She slowly slipped her hand from his before skipping towards and into the building where the game was.




Clarissa giggled softly, rolling her eyes at him as she saw his face turn three different shades of red. "Oh nothing really. I just saw you looking at me and I was also thinking you could help me out with something that I need help with." She said to him with a small smile as she looked him over. Catrina stopped near them, raising a curious eyebrow at them. Weird, she thought when she saw how red Benjamin's face was. She shook her head then just started to walk off without him and continued their patrol without him while he talked to Clarissa.

Aza had followed close to him all the way to the bakery then she slowed down so that he left a few feet between them. Upon entering the bakery the instant aroma of baked goods hit her and an instant smile grew on her face. She inhaled the aroma deeply. Following Zechariah over to the counter she looked at all the options of what she could get. She bit her lip gently, nibbling on it a bit as she looked at all of the possible things she could get. Everything looked so freaking delicious! She was having a hard time choosing. Finally after a few minutes of debating she looked at the baker and smiled gently while straightening up a bit. "I'll have a Banana Muffin." She told him as she pushed her braid over her shoulder. Accidentally without thinking about it she reach for Zechariah's hand, but quickly yanked her hand back when she realized what she was doing.




May giggled, picking up a fake pistol and aiming. She wasn't perfect, but she knew she was a really good shooter when it came to using a pistol. Holding it up she aimed and fired, going for the bullseye which she hit several times. She couldn't remember how many times though, just that she had suddenly been determined to get a better score than Aaron at least. She didn't care about winning even though the competitive side of her wanted first place as long as she beat Aaron that would be good enough for her.




Clarissa sighed softly, realizing she had probably confused him. "I'm sorry," She said softly. "That was probably really confusing. Here lets start with this," She paused, thinking for a moment. "I really need your help right now. Your a solider right? You know your way around here right?" She asked, let out a soft, long breath. You could tell she was starting to stress out for a reason that was unknown to human beings.




Catrina stopped, turning in the direction of who was speaking. Her eyes landed on the person who was speaking. She glanced down at her outfit, oh yeah real attractive her in her uniform turns every man on. She rolled her eyes at Kyle, pushing a strand of her red hair over her shoulder. Even though she was acting like she didn't care you could tell by the blush slowly showing up that she had never had that happen before. She shook her head at him, "Can I help you?" She asked, crossing her arms over her chest.

Zechariah paid for the bananna muffin and the blueberry bagel, which the baker brought out; with the bagel came the cream cheese. With everything paid for and received, Zech gave Azalea the muffin. He figured the conference could have an unexpected early closing at some point, though he knew the festival at Diplomacy Square would still go on. The crowd would keep the couple hidden from anyone at the hall who may be on one of the balconies. The area was that populated, at the moment. There always was a crowd in Diplomacy Square which would make it hard to spot people. Zecahaiah walked with her to the bench near the gate they saw each other at, in case Aaron, Kyle, or May were coming.

Zechariah sat down on the bench, motioning for her to do the same. The part of Diplomacy Square they were in was out of the hall's view. Even if Royalty were to be on the hall's balcony, the Eagle of Mercy and the Princess of Metargo would not be seen by them. He smiled his gentle smile and said, "The District of Justicra has blended elements of cultures worldwide and throughout Benjlakk because of all the visitors we get to Diplomacy Square each time peace talks are opened in this country. Other communities have a mix of international tastes, as well, due to immigrants that came in the past."

His eyes now focused on the floor, he added, "Such a mix of people from around the world resulted in Benjlakk being aware of problems abroad we would not have known, otherwise, which reinforces our neutrality in wars. Charities and scientists can't exactly help people from nations we fight against." Gazing into Aza's eyes, Zechariah laughed a little with his mouth closed. "Okay, so I'm a smarty-pants."

-----

The sound which told competitors it was half time indicated it was time to switch out the clips to the fake pistols. Aaron did that with the speed a highly trained soldier would do it before shooting again. This time, his shots were faster to the point where he could not tell whether he hit the bullseye or not. At the end, both he and May were tied for first, and Aaron was even more surpised when he saw their scores exactly like the high score set by Zechariah, whom has participated in the game in the past. The person in charge of the game gave both Aaron and May the prize of the day, tokens with images of landscapes within Fertaninn. Aaron shrugged at receiving his token, as he was just trying not to be bored. Now that he thought about it, where was Kyle?

"Kyle may be flirting with somebody at the refreshment section. I guess we better meet him there, May."

-----

Kyle was inwardly fantasizing when he saw the blush on Catrina's face, yet he did not show it. instead, he kept his cool and shrugged with, "Eh, nothing, really, I just feel like talkin'." The perverted soldier winked before asking, "So, beautiful, we might as well know each other's names, right? I'm Kyle, and you are?"

-----


Gracchus raised an eyebrow in confusion. Just what was a carnival? Before he could ask, Oriana was already out in the hallway. He walked out and eventually saw her glancing out the window. He decided to stand next to her to see what she was looking at with such a smile. Are they her children, or that woman's? It made him wonder if Oriana had a husband or boyfriend, which he hoped not. Realizing he still had the mocha he made in his hand, he stored it in his compartment via a spell. On the bright side, if she is single and those children were often around her, then there is a gentle side to her. His ears caught on to some of the outdoor screams due to his excellent hearing in comparison to that of a human's. Big Sis, they say? He did not catch the whole nickname, yet what he did hear made him grin gently.

Azalea took a bite of her Banana muffin after Zechariah paid for the muffins and gave her the muffin that she chose out. A small smile came to her face as she took another bite. She followed close behind him while they walked to a bench near the gate at the Diplomacy Square. This gave them some kind of privacy from on looking people who may be creeping about on porches. She sighed softly, glancing over at Zechariah as she took another tiny bite from her muffin. Dang this muffin was good. When she looked over at Zechariah she noticed that smile that she loved. When she spoke she nodded, listening to what he had to say. What he had said was a random thing, but she knew what he was talking about, so she nodded showing that she understood what he was saying. She giggled, covering her mouth with the back of her hand since she had a little bit of food in her mouth. "That's okay, I like smarty-pants." She told him once she had finished the food that recently had been in her mouth. She gently nudged him once then shook her head as she broke form looking him in the eyes and changed her gaze to the ground. "Plus I like to listen to what you have to say its so... intelligent. It makes sense to me, even though it can be random some times." She admitted to him with a small nervous smile.




After tying with Aaron she sighed softly. Well tying was good enough for her. At least she got a prize, and noticed that their scores were pretty much exactly like Zechariah's high score. This surprised her a little because she didn't expect that at all. After getting her prize she looked the prize over, smiling and shaking her head a little. "Nice prize," She said softly before stuffing the coin into one of her pockets. She turned toward Aaron, smiling gently at him. "Good job by that way Aaron," she mentioned before he spoke about how Kyle was probably flirting with someone at the refreshment section and that they should probably meet him there. She nodded in agreement and sighed softly. "Alright then lets go then," She said as she started to walk towards the refreshment station that Kyle had gone to. She was walking at a normal pace though mostly because what was the rush anyways? She also didn't want to lose Aaron since this time she was leading the way.




The blush on Catrina's face disappeared as quickly as it arrived. She rolled her eyes at him, sighing softly while messing with her uniform. "Pleasure to meet you Kyle my name is Catrina." She said simply, looking at him. Twirling her hair between her fingers she tilted her head slightly, giving him a curious look. She blinked a few times, looking absolutely innocent. Her shyness decided to finally come out and she looked over her shoulder, practically begging for Benjamin to show up to save her right now because she didn't know what to say or do and she was acting like a complete idiot. "Oh great," She mumbled under her breath. Damn her and her shyness. It was such a burden some times because she didn't know what to say to people she has just met and she doesn't ever want to be rude or mean to people. Straightening up she nibbled on her lip, looking a little nervous as she glanced around.

Zechariah shrugged while giggling a little, as well, thinking on what Aza said. He broke eye contact and ate a little. With a few bites of his bagel down, he swallowed the latest one and looked in the Princess' direction. He figured talking about certain relative of hers would result in an uncomfortable situation, so he decided to ask a question on something else. He heard from other people Metargo cities were largely metallic, with gardens on the roofs of buildings due to them being to tall. Either way, he felt that should he meet some of her family (assuming it was at any point safe enough to have their relationship known to the public) he would have to know about the nation, sooner or later.

"What is Metargo like?"

-----

Benjamin nodded, a bit more relaxed, now, and nodded towards Clarissa. "Sure do. Was there a specific place you had in mind? I know that the Disctrict of Justicra is a massive place, like Diplomacy Square is. Anyway, I can help with that."

-----

Kyle noticed the shyness from Catrina and thought of how adorable she was. Frankly, he was a bit shy, as well. He was always like that on the inside whenever seeing someone he genuinely liked. He was a pervert, yes, but not to the point of insensitivity. He still did not show anything but the grin on his face. He could be such a smooth talker, sometimes. He was about to say something when he heard Aaron from a distance, which was not at all pleasant with him not showing up.

Kyle shugged and handed Catrina a paper with his communications number before he walked up to Aaron with, "Sorry, I got a bit sidetracked."

Aaron scoffed. "I can see that."

Kyle handed the hot chocolate (which was still warm, to an extent) to May, and the strawberry daiquiri to Aaron. Picking up the cup of vodka and sipping it, he thought on what else was there to do. Of course, he did not desire to leave Catrina's side. Alas, if they had to, they had to.

-----

Gracchus heard what Oriana said and felt somewhat more relaxed. Of course, it was only fair that the diplomat not make a decision. Not knowing one another so well could pose a problem. Granted, he did not have much of a choice on admitting his feelings due to putting himself in a spot where he had to. Nodded, he went back to the room and sat down without a word.

------

Saul decided to break the silence between him and Calida. He was not sure when the meeting would continue, so he said to her, "Calida, darling, you were always better at social matters, which is why I need a little help from you with something." The King sighed prior to resuming. "I believe I may have been too hard on Leo, and I feel I was a terrible father because of that. I wish to make it up to him, yet I am not sure how to go about it."

Aza smiled a little, thinking about how Metargo was like. It was a really nice place and she loved it but hat probably wouldn't be a good explanation. She glanced around, "Its a really nice place." She said softly, looking over at him with a smile. "I mean you know what people say about it. It has all these amazingly tall buildings, with these gorgeous gardens on them. The people there are nice, sometimes." She informed him. "I love taking walks around Metargo when I am allowed to, and I love to see how people interact with each other. You would be amazed at what I see some times." She admitted, shaking her head once before sighing softly. "Anything specific you want to know about Metargo?" She questioned him.




Clarissa smiled, thinking for a few seconds before coming up with a place. "Um, no not really. I just thought because you most likely know this area very well that you could show me around and tell me a little bit about this place." She said to him finally. She didn't want to seem so suspicious because she didn't want to admit to him that she was an angel. At least not yet. "Oh I forgot to mention, I am Clarissa." She introduced herself with a small, gentle smile.




May followed close to Aaron, sighing softly as he just pretty much returned to his usual self. She crossed her arms over her chest, seeing Kyle she waved at him once then crossing her arms over her chest again. She noticed a girl talking to Kyle and wondered if she should just leave them alone, but Aaron didn't seem to care that he was talking to someone. Sighing softly she shook her head watching Catrina while Aaron and May edged closer and closer to Kyle. Catrina had taken the paper with his communication number she looked at it for a moment before at Kyle. She smiled and shook her head at him, sighing softly she turned away and walked off while stuffing the communication number into one of the many pockets. She didn't even take a second look at it. She wasn't interest, nope, not at all, and she wasn't planning on communicating him at all... nope... never.

After Kyle had finally approached them and handed them their drinks she shook her head at him, taking a small sip of her hot chocolate. Good thing it was still kind of warm. She smiled at him, shaking her head before looking to Aaron on how he was going to react. Aaron had always been such a hard ass to Kyle when he wasn't on task. Running a hand through her hair then took another larger sip of her drink. Gosh she loved chocolate.

Zechariah nodded occasionally to confirm he was listening. Metargo Capitag'hk, coming from Azalea's mouth, sounded like a nice city, yet the towers blocking the sky so much would take some getting used to. Shrugging, he answered her question with, "Nah, I can't think of anything specific." Finishing off his bagel, he thought on what to discuss, next. As he thought on it, he saw a pair of birds building a nest at a nearby tree. If only we could be like them and not worry about what other people think. The mere recollection on the reality of what both the Benjlakki and Metargo would say to them being together gave him a saddened frown. One of these days, Zechariah. Soon, it will be safe. It is just a matter of time. All this political stuff needs to fade away, first, is all.

------

Benjamin grinned a little. for some odd reason, he felt a lot calmer, less intense. Of course, he was a sucker for innocent-looking people, yet he felt even more so around this woman, and he could not place a finger on why. Nodding, Benjamin showed her around town, including some of the major sites, such as Justicra Library, where books on countless topics were found (even a ton of old newspapers and recordings).Last, but not least, the bakery next to Diplomacy Square. "My brother and I came here, once in a while, during our first time in this city for mech piloting training. Everything in this bakery is handmade."

------

Kyle looked behind him and saw Catrina walking away, which made him snap his fingers in disappointment. "Drat."

Aaron simply rolled his eyes. "You can't get your mind off of women, can you?"

"I try."

Aaron glanced over at a nearby clock. "Well, we may need to get going back to the gate we came through. I don't know when the conference will end, so we're better safe than sorry."

He led all both Kyle and May back to where they were at the gate to see Zechariah and Azalea on the bench together. At this point, Aaron's cold façade faded just by reflecting on what all Zechariah said. His face expressed subtle signs of regret at ever being so harsh towards the Eagle of Mercy, whom would prefer not to be preferred as such. Kyle was the first to notice.

"Hey, sergeant? You seem to be down, a little."

Aaron glanced in Kyle's direction. "What makes you say that?"

Kyle smirked. "Oh, come on! You hardly ever let that cold façade go away. What's eating you?"

"Nothing."

Shrugging, the perverted Private told him, "Okay, but if you ever want to talk about it, let us know."

-----

Agathe took a sip of iced, decaffeinated coffee, to refresh after having arrived at the District of Justicra. She had many things to attend to before arriving so late, such as reconfiguring the 9H-K Red Bolt via spells so that it could handle magic ammo and projectiles, plus give off a magic blade where plasma would be, since plasma is still a mystery to most Mysticarans. She felt Cam Broch has been dealt a bad hand and could use a friend. Fertaninn had quite a beauty of its own, she had to admit, with all the farms, bizarre windmills, communities which thrive on solar energy, and all sorts of natural wildlife and plantlife native only to Benjlakk. The towns were amazing, as well, with all the different arrays of buildings and gardens, plus the occasional fountains and pools. She loved it all.

Agathe decided to use a spell she developed which would allow her to see different sites of the city without having to move about. Frankly, she eventually spotted a Metargo soldier armed with a sniper rifle looking onwards toward a window in the Conference Hall, which gave her some concern. Who would risk the wrath of Benjlakk doing what she thought the man was doing? Then again, he could have been doing something else, yet she had no clue. At any rate, she was compelled to go see this man. Her teleportation worked just fine, her winding up behind the man without a sound. Granted, she wondered how much longer it would be before matters got out of hand, as she took a large enough risk teleporting behind him.

Hesitantly, she tapped him on the shoulder while shyly saying, "Hello? I-Is everything okay? I mean, Benjlakk doesn't want any violence, and they are strict about enforing their polices so... there's nothing to worry about, right?" Agathe took a few steps back at noticing the mask. It was one she was familiar with from reading a book on the Metargo military while bored. "I-I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you."

----

Saul smiled towards Calida ever so gently. Her response was not what he expected, given how she mistook part of what he said, yet he realized he should have worded it differently. At any rate, his wife was correct in that Leonardo should not be treated like a boy. Yet, it did nothing to ease his remorse, overall, at how he was not particularly fatherly towards their son. He hid that well with his closed-mouth grin as he waited for everyone to be seated so that President Anderson could give commence with the continuation of the meeting.

After hearing whatever Azalea had to say, he did not even have time to respond when he suddenly received a message from a member of Brown Wing Team. Whatever it was had to be important. The voice message went as follows:

Zechariah, we have a problem! We just received two distress calls from two different locations at Hawk Street, on the southern side of town! They each claim people in military uniform are holding them hostage for secrets on the Benjlakki Armed Forces' military technology! I couldn't get anything else from the transmissions other than torture is going on as we speak! I've sent the coordinates to you while sending this message! We better get to those locations, and fast! Kenneth Nadab, out!

Zechariah glanced towards Azalea with a soft grin, though his eyes expressed a hint of sadness at the two of them having to go their separate ways, again. "I'll keep in touch, okay?" With that, he sprinted off while sending a message to every Brown Wing Team Member about the scenario, ordering everyone to set their weapons to stun.

With that out of the way, Zechariah had to send a distress call to one of the military headquarters in town. The nearest to the scenes was the Naval Headquarters. Knowing that, he set an announcement on the facility's speakers which went as follows:

Naval Headquarters, this is Zechariah Malachi, from Brown Wing Team! We received two distress calls from two different locations on Hawk Street that cvilians are being held hostage in abandoned buildings, the coordinates indicated on the map! All personnel available are requested to assist with rescuing them and finding out who it is that violated our neutrality!

-----

Agathe noticed the cold look Cain gave and frowned. I must've touched on something I shouldn't have... Hearing what he said caused her to express a hint of sadness. "Sorry to hear that."

-----

Gracchus relaxed a little when Oriana said it was okay, though he still did not enjoy the cold look she gave. When she gave the suggestion of coming with her and the orphans, he casually nodded. "I don't see any harm in that." turning toward Malinha, he asked her, "Yes, no, maybe? What say you chieftain?"

-----

Benjamin listened to whatever Clarissa told him before be heard his brother call for Brown Wing Team to head to two different locations to rescue civilians. "Dang. Sorry, I better go, here's an extra communications devise." He gave instructions on how to use it then said he would call her, soon, on it. That out of the way, he sprinted towards one of the buildings. There, he and his squadron stormed inside and were met by elemental blasts. Mysticarans... Who'd have thought they'd go this far?

-----

President Anderson listened to whatever Sandra had to say. Before anything could be said back, however, one of the security officers ran up to him with the report of Naval Headquarters being notified of civilian held hostage in abandoned buildings at Hawk Street, the coordinates for both buildings provided. President Anderon nodded with a solemn nod, then told Sandra, "We should probably handle the task at hand before we discuss this matter further."

-----

Zechariah and two squadrons met at the other buildings, weapons set to stun, ready for further instructions. The sergeant could only hope reinforcements would arrive. If this, this would prove difficult.

-----

Aaron could see armored hovercraft above the city while he was on guard for any assassins. Kyle raised an eyebrow while wondering what could be going on. First, Zechariah had to leave because of an emergency, then suddenly this happens? What was going on?

-----

Sarxas listened to whatever Isaac next said before hearing from zechariah about an emergency to attend to. From what she heard, it seemed serious. Bringing out her pistols and setting them to stun, her expressions turned from happy and kitten-like to serious and angry. "I better go. Someone's violated Benjlakk's neutrality policies, and I need to be there to rescue some civilians. If there is time later today, I'll come back to talk to you."

Throwing away her plate and what was left of the salmon she had, she sprinted off with incredible speed. She met up with Zechariah and leaned on the wall where everyone in her squadron was. Whatever it was that would happen, the tiger Feliniri immigrant was prepared for.

The setting changes from Benjlakk to Myrstrarkia

Azalea sighed, messing with the bottom of her dress as she nodded to Zechariah. She glanced over at him, watching him flee away as he went to go take care of what ever needed to be taken care of. Most of the time she never was really good with that kind of stuff. It was evident that she was sad that he was leaving her side, but of course she knew everything had a reason. Slowly she rose from the bench where Zechariah and her had once been seated at. Turning towards Aaron and the other's who would soon enough escort her away she quirked an eyebrow, following Aaron's up to the sky where an armored hovercraft was flying above the city. Running over to the few soldier's she look at them with a questioning look. "What is going on?" She asked Aaron mostly, but it would be just fine with her if any of them answered.


May shrugged, unsure of what was going on to be completely honest. She looked around, half expecting people to be freaking out, and half expecting people to start rushing out at them for no reason. "Where did Zechariah go?" Questioned May to Azalea who simply responded with a shrug. "I heard the voicemail, but I'm not sure exactly what was going on." She admitted with a sigh, looking over from Kyle to Aaron. "Do you think my parent's are finished with the meeting yet?" She tried to ignore the large hovercraft that was making its way across the sky.


Clarissa sighed, nodding to Benjamin. As soon as he put that communication device in her hand and tried to teach her how to use it she flipped it around, inspecting it after he was no longer in her eye sight. She gently tapped the thing on the desk then cleared her throat as she lifted her body from the table. Making sure she was finished with everything she left the pastry shop, and circled behind it. After double checking to make sure no one was around she released her wings, shooting straight up into the air. Tucking the communication device away in her belt and securing it to make sure it wouldn't fall she shot across the sky, looking around as she tried to get an idea of the place. It was also then that she noticed the hovercraft, what in the world is that thing? She quirked an eyebrow, floating down a little incase it came in her direction.


Catrina snorted, getting a communication advising them that they needed to report to a certain area. She let out a long breath then darted in the direction. She broke by people, going to the place where she had been told people were being held kidnapped. Hurrying over to the place she got there just as Benjamin did. Whipping out her weapon she helped storm into the building. Gasping at the sudden elemental blast, she inhaled deeply, wondering what in the world just happen. A two second daze was quickly over and she was sliding to some kind of cover, although, this place did not offer that much cover.

Agathe felt a little better, until she noticed she shadow then heard what Cain said next. That can't be good. Looks like I better get Isaac then head back to the Asgarda. Running in the direction of where she tracked the werewolf, she found him by himself, then stood in front of him.

"We better get out of here, Isaac! So many hovercraft in the sky can only mean someone violated Benjlakk's neutrality! It's a good thing I made the finishing touches on your new Valkyrie Golem, because if one of the Tribal Forces is involved in whatever incident it is in this city, our country shall have made a dangerous enemy!" She made sure the boy was following her before shouting, "Hurry! The rest of the Air and Ground Party should already be on its way to the ship, and we need to catch up!"

----

Gracchus was unable to get an answer from the Chieftain, for he heard hovercraft beginning to enter the sky. He may not know much about machines, but what he did know was that vehicles of such design as he saw up there were used in critical emergencies where the Benjlakki military had to be involved. His suspicions were confirmed when Cam came up and reported that there was a hostage situation. "Looks like someone has violated Benjlakk's neutrality. I do know of some Tribal forces whom tend to be brash. If any such troops are involved, we may have out warmed our welcome here." Clenching his fists, he furiously added, "I swear, even without fighting, this war gets out of hand far too quickly! I just hope my hunches are wrong!" He used one of his comm orbs and commanded all Air and Ground Party members to get back to the Asgarda at once, then take off once everyone is accounted for. "Chieftain Malinha, it is time we leave!" Turning toward Orianna with sad eyes, he told the diplomat. "I'm sorry we have to part under such circumstances. Until we meet again." He gave the Natrulkra salute, which was basically a fist pound to his chest before lifting the same arm to hold his hand flat and diagonally across his forehead, then grabbed Malinha's wrist and sprinted towards the ship, expecting the rest of the unit he had with him to be there without a moment to lose.

----

Aaron glanced in Azalea's direction with his usual emotionless look he gave when around royalty. "Benjlakk does not resort to hovercraft of that caliber floating around unless something serious was going on. My guess is, some morons from either our side or Mysticara's violated this country's neutrality. Military hovercraft like what's up there are resorted to when dealing with hostiles in uniform, or some other threat requiring military attention. I've seen scenarios like this during simulations before our previous war." The former Ghost came by, and the Sergeant gritted his teeth at what Cain said to him, even as the specialist left. "Since when was he in charge of Lion Team?"

Kyle shrugged, "Well, at least he's helping out in the way he knows how."

"That's not an excuse in my book! Unless the King himself says otherwise, I give the orders to the whole unit!"

This was when Private Scipio snapped and slapped Aaron hard in the face. "We've got bigger problems, right now, sir! Get off your high horse, already! I'm getting sick of it!"

Aaron would normally snap, too, but this was different. For once, he came to his senses and realized Kyle had a point. Perverted and undisciplined as Private Scipio was, he had his moments where he displayed a degree of leadership. The Sergeant nodded in agreement. "You're right, Kyle, we do have bigger problems. That takes precedence. We better escort the Princess towards the shuttle, wait for the rest of the royal family, then get out of here with the rest of Lion Team, the entire royal family with us." Using his commlink, he contacted Cralyn. "Private Alymer, we're escorting the royal family out of here! Find The King, Queen, and Prince, then help Specialist Numi escort them to the shuttle! We'll meet you there with Princess Azalea coming with us to that location! You got that, Private? I don't want the royal court even close to Benjlakki territory if some idiot from our own nation is involved in whatever incident it is that brought the attention of the Benjlakki Armed Forces!"

----

Saul heard footsteps coming in the direction of himself, Leo, and Calida, then saw Cain, this time with his mask off. He could only hope the man did not do anything that could jeopardize the diplomatic situation, as he had a tendency to overdo things. "Cain, is something wrong?" He then noticed the hovercraft and realized the severity of the situation. "I see. The Benjlakki military is looking into something of importance. I believe it is time we leave, and Azalea should no doubt be on her way to the shuttle, knowing how Aaron, Kyle, and May are about these matters." Turning towards Leonardo, he said, "I do not know what is exactly happening, Leo, but I guess this is a mixed blessing. Time in the shuttle will give us the opportunity to talk more like father and son, something I should have done long ago." A gentle smile towards Calida, he said to her, "Well, darling, I guess we better go."

----

Benjamin and the rest of the squad searched for cover while returning fire to the Mysticarans in the building. Absorption fields were activated to take the hits from the spells. This would not be an easy fight.

----

President Anderson heard Sandra's question, looked at the screen, then sighed. "It appears both the military and police are already involved." Picking up a commlink, he contacted Zechariah. "Sergeant Malachi, this is Howard Anderson. Admiral Lionel and I are formulating a plan for your location as we speak. reinforcements are on their way, it seems."

----

Zechariah heard President Anderson, then replied with, "Roger, Mr. President. Awaiting instructions." Glancing in Ayoto's direction, he told her, "I can tell you this won't be easy. We're dealing with foreign military, and we'll find out who soon enough."

Sarxas added to the conversation. "Whoever they are, they won't escape trial, that's for sure."

----

A member of Lion Team came up to Max and told him, "Sir, it's time to go. We need to head back to the shuttle."
