    World War Infinity

    Post by Karmzy on Fri Jul 20, 2012 2:32 am

    Training Grounds
    Carde Estate
    Iceland


    Karma was late. Then again, it was a trait that the girl had perfected. In fact, it had gotten to the point that Nolan had started to tell her that training began earlier than it did; just to have her on time. It was disconcerting, having an adult that knew her so well. Either way, she was nearly bouncing with excitement as she got dressed. This was the first training session that had come with an outfit regulation. It was something new, something unexpected. It meant the training would be new, and a new challenge. Pulling on the black tank top and sliding the camouflage khaki shorts over her hips, Karma glanced at the window, where the darkness of predawn was hiding the world from the her eyes. Once both fingerless gloves were on, and her shoelaces tied, she stopped at her door, her eyes going to the package that Nolan had sent in advance.

    Tugging open the small package, she blinked at the note on top.

    Black,

    Welcome to Alpha Team.

    You will unarm yourself at the training ground. You are allowed to keep one weapon of choice on your person, and know you may pick weapons on site.

    In this package you will find your identification and rank. Wear both to the field.

    N.C.


    Shaking the contents of the box onto her bed, Karma eyed the dogtag and bandana. The dogtags were standard, two on a chain, one with Black|#0001, the other with an A, only the line that crossed the A was replaced with a knife. Slipping the silver tags over her neck, Karma turned to the bandana, examining the black cloth with a raised eyebrow. The same symbol from the dog tag, only in red and white, with a yellow crown around the apex of the A. Folding it carefully, Karma tied the bandana around her forehead, tying it to the side so that the symbol was over her temple.

    Standing, she made her way through her bedroom door, sneakers silent against the floor as she navigated through the hallways. She pulled a lollipop from her pocket, pausing to check the flavor before unwrapping it and sticking it into her mouth. It was cherry.

    Pushing through the doors that led out back, she paused for a second to let her eyes adjust to the harsh white light of the coupled spotlights illuminating the semi-circle of stacked army green ammunition boxes forming a tall barrier between the back door and whatever else was in the backyard.

    Geoffrey stood beside an table, gesturing to it silently. A sign on it read simply 'Weapons', and without further ado, Karma started pulling off her daggers, placing them neatly on the table by size and location, from the biggest at the small of her back to the smallest ones that were usually up her sleeves, to the thin ones she had... elsewhere. Soon, all of the ten or so daggers were laid out, along with both of her guns. Picking the one that Nolan had gotten her for her birthday - magical, just like his - she shoved it into the back of her waistband and looked up at Geoffrey. He, in return, gave her a glare.

    With a challenging glare, Karma stared him down until she was distracted by the sound of rapid gunfire, and explosions from behind the tall wall. She craned her neck to see around him, but was blocked by the man's outstretched hand.

    Sighing, Karma began to take off the rest of her hidden daggers.

    The sound of someone smacking gum filled the space as the formally blonde girl strode over, her blue eyes glancing around with an almost blank distinterest before falling on a familar form.

    "Darling," she drawled with her best posh sociale impression. She paused to blow a bubble in her gum, the popping sound echoing in an odd silence between the other noises. "Its so grand to see you."

    Rolling her eyes, she put her usual frown back on her face, and gave Karma a nod before she wiggled the few weapons she held on her and tossed them on the table. She use to hide a lot more... but since her recent bender her father had confiscated most of them and was being slow in giving them all back.

    Hesitating a moment, she was about to drop a knife on the table, before she shook her head and putting it back. After all, she couldn't let go of Tre's gift.

    "Don't know who you are," she said glancing up at the man, fiddling with the dog tags absentmindedly, "But I swear thats it... you could search me but... I may be forced to stab you if you try to touch me... I don't like touching."

    She poped a bubble again, and wandered around boredly, stomping her booted feet, and watching the area once more with obvious boredum. She had put on the uniform as required, tying the bandana half hazardly on her right bicep, and after one a last hesitant, she had stuffed her long dark hair up into her Phillies cap.

    "So... are things going to get any more exciting than this?"

    He wasn't even sure why he was here.

    Oh sure, he'd gotten the package, but he didn't know what Alpha Team was or why he was in it. After all, if it was important enough to be Alpha, why in the world would someone like him be on it? Frowning, Afonka twiddled his thumbs, staring at the bandana between his fingers as he walked through the winding hallways, decked out in the training gear. As he walked, the dogtags bounced against his chest, and he absentmindedly began chewing on his bottom lip.

    Was he scared? He probably should be, but at the same time, he couldn't help but be somewhat awestruck by the house he found himself in and rather excited for what was coming next.

    Finally making his way to the backyard, Afonka stood just inside the doorway, watching the scene unfold, his eyes glued to the weapon table. He'd have to choose one, wouldn't he? He was probably the only person here who wasn't constantly armed. Glancing over at the people, he watched the unfamiliar dark-haired teenager. But she was familiar. He'd seen her somewhere before....frowning, he shrugged, shaking it off, taking tiny little steps forward until he reached the three people inside.

    Giving them all little waves and Ashleen a little smile, he quickly copied Ash, tying the bandana around his wrist. "I don't have any weapons on me," he said softly up at the man. "You're free to check if you want, though." Looking back down at the all the weapons, he kept his brown eyes on them even as he spoke to the people around him, eyes flicking from one weapon to the next. "So, do any of you know why we're here?"

    Karma glanced up at the sound of Sheen's voice, a grin flitting over her face as she slid the last weapon - a large two hand sword that seemed to have been hidden in the space over her spine - on the table, which sagged with the weight of it, she turned to both of them. "Sheeny, darling, I didn't know you were invited to this big shabang..."

    "Where's the knife?" Geoffrey demanded out of nowhere. His eyes were trained on her half of the weapons table. He was counting, his eyes flicking from one to the other. "The knife your boyfriend gave you, where is it?"

    Karma glared at the butler, completely ignorant of the fact that the boy came up. "I don't have it." Geoffrey walked around the table, and she watched with obvious challenge. "I don't have it." She warned again. He reached around her, his hand disappearing into the pocket of air at the small of her back. She stayed completely still as his hand disappeared further, and he frowned. Tugging suddenly, he pulled out a massive weapon - a missle launcher, and glared at her.

    "Whoa!" She said with an easy grin. "How did that get in there? Weird." Geoffrey rolled his eyes and placed the weapon on the table, which was nearly tipping Karma's half toward the ground.

    "Now that most of you are here, please proceed into the Team Base." He gestured to the grass behind the weapons table. "And choose your weapons."

    Karma was already walking into the grass behind him, striding forward until she was forced to a stop by what was happening on the ground. The moment the last of the three of them stepped onto the grass, a bright blue circle appeared around them, cutting off the weapons table. Karma's eyes weren't on this, however.

    The grass before her feet had split open, a silver metallic floor rose to replace it, with a line of three metal tables, with a smaller one at the forefront. The table closest to them was outfitted with every kind of pistol and revolver known to man, a line of the same gun from table front to table back, so that each of them could take three of the same kind easily, and still leave enough for the rest of the team. The one on the left was covered with with every type of knife and blade you could imagine, from daggers to katanas, swords to bayonets. The one in the center had projectile weapons - shuriken, throwing knives, grenades, tomahawks - and a smorgus board of weapon holsters. The table on the left was weighted down with explosives of every kind, from simple grenades to massive amounts of C4, to the grenade launchers positioned in a beautiful row beside them on the table. Army green ammunition boxes - the same as was blocking them off from the rest of the yard - were around the floor along the sides, open and revealing their boxes of ammunition, and standard clips to put the bullets in.

    Her eyes flicked from table to table, fingers already twitching to gear up before the mechanical sound of released pressure filled the air, and a metal gate rose from the back of the floor. As it rose, it revealed its contents; guns.

    Assault rifles, machine guns, shotguns, magnum pistols, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and everything in between, were hanging from the thing, lined from top to bottom with the same weapon as to give them all a chance to have more than one. A grin flashed across Karma's face as she took it all in.

    Geoffrey walked in front of them, gesturing to the weapon selection. "You may each specialize in two categories of weapon - explosive, projectile, blade, or ammunition. You may only take one weapon from a category that is not your own. However, you all get one pistol, for your secondary, and one of the guns off the back. Gear up, load yourself with the ammo you need, and Master Carde will be here to debrief you once the last member gets here." He pulled out a clipboard and looked down at it. "Now. Choose your categories."

    "Blade and projectile." Karma said automatically, already on the floor. Her fingers ran over each blade with a critical eye before she moved over to the table of projectiles, picking up each and testing their weight. Beyond the barrier, the sound of rapid fire dotted with explosions and shouts was getting louder. It was almost time. She could feel the anticipation rising in her bones.

    She didn't know what was going on yet, but it was sure starting to look fun.

    The girl's bored gaze actually coloured with surprise as she recongized the boy who walked in.

    "Who invited Brown Eyes to the party?" she asked before she could help herself. She shrugged her shoulders at the boy afterwards, "No offence. Just... figured they're asking you to get yourself killed. With... whatever we're doing."

    She let her gaze linger on the boy for a moment longer before shaking her head and looking back over to Karma and the man. This was the boys life now, she supposed he'd have to get use to it. She only snorted as Karma's weapons where fought away from her.

    "We unloaded our weapons to get new weapons?" Ash asked, her voice critical, as she followed where she was told to go. She froze however as things began to move around, and appear out of nowhere. Her eyes showed that she was mildly impressed, however nothing else in her stance changed.

    That was until her gaze wandered to the table with the explosives; the girls back straighted, and a smirk grew on her face. Her eyes light up like a child at a candy store. The only thing that stopped her from moving over there was years of rules being ingrained into her head; you didn't move until you were told to.

    However, that didn't stop her from slowly inching closer towards the table as the man spoke - she was barely listening to him, her eyes appraising each item careful, assessing the quality, and trying to predict the damage as well as she could from a distance.

    "Explosives," she called quickly, over at the table in a flash as soon as her brain heard something as close to permission to be over there. Her hands slide over the times she knew she could touch without safely. She was lifting a grenade in her hand, testing the wait when the rest of the order came to her head, and she managed to look at the other tables with her former disinterest, "Oh, and I guess Blades."

    Once she was armed to the teeth with every explosive she'd figured how to hold on her body, and was slowly moving her way into grabbing the other items, she let her brain shift through the other information that had been said and raised an eyebrow.

    "Someone else is coming?" she asked dully, before smirking, "Soommeone's laaaate."

    Blinking up at Ash, he shrugged, "Someone who thought I needed the training, I guess." or wanted me dead. That works too. Looking back over at the other girl as she unloaded more and more weapons, he stared, wondering how she was able to keep all of those on her at one time. Well, it was obvious she was using magic, but still.

    Nodding at the man, he trailed behind, eyes still flickering around at his surroundings. Eyes widening as the ground beneath their feet began to shift and change, he watched, rather awestruck as all the weapons began to appear around them.

    All the weapons around him made him feel edgy, like something was going to go very wrong here. Shaking off the feeling, simply passing them off as nerves and fear, he turned back to the man, nodding along to his words.

    What to specialize in? Continuing to chew on his bottom lip, his eyes scanned the weapons, amusedly glancing over at Ashleen and the explosives. Projectiles, that was throwing things, right? And he was good at that. All the time he'd spent playing Chaser on Quidditch teams had to pay off eventually, right? Stepping towards the katanas and shurikens, he flipped them over between his fingers. "Projectiles," he called out to the man, before turning back to the weapons, a tiny little smile spreading across his face as he began to arm himself.

    Glancing around at the other weapons as he did, his eyes locked on the guns. "Ammunition." Afonka said with a nod, continuing to arm himself. Glancing back at Ashleen, he shrugged, having no idea who else could be coming. Ksenia maybe? But he didn't really want to work with her. Frowning, he shrugged. He'd deal if it was her. It wasn't like he was enjoying this.

    The dog tags jingled against her chest as the Irish teen unloaded all her weapons from her body. Wand, daggers, knives, swords, throwing knives, ninja stars, and the quill she kept in her hair all went onto the table. A thoughtful look entered her grey eyes and Ciar picked back up the long wicked looking knife. It was Goblin made of the best material and the handle was black with a leather grip. Infused with Basilisk venom, it was a deadly blade especially when wielded by someone with great skill. She tucked it against the outside of her thigh underneath the grey, Acromantula silk, skin tight pants.

    Heading over to where the others were she settled into a laid back, almost cocky jaunt. It wasn't that she was trying to show off but to cover up her slight uneasiness. The teen didn't know what was coming up and why exactly she was here but she would deal with it with the grace, cunning, and face of fearlessness she was known for.

    She flicked a piece of lint from the earthy brown skin tight shirt that accented her curves. Dragon hide boots thumped softly on the floor as she approached. "Now, now, Ash," she chided. "You should know by now that I am never late. I arrive precisely when I mean to."

    She adjusted the bandana tied around her head, the emblem in the middle of her forehead. A piece of black leather held her hair back in a pony and it was tucked up under the bandana to keep it from being used against her. She perused the array of weapons in front of her glad that she had thought to finally study up on advanced Muggle weaponry even after taking it in class.

    She studied all four tables tapping her lip in thought. "Explosives and ammunition," she said finally. Choosing to equip the explosives first she belted two fist sized containers of C4 to each of her hips. Underneath her shirt in crossover ammo belts she slipped several packages of TNT and a couple small dynamite sticks. Over top of the long sleeved shirt the Irish teen put two more crossover ammo belts, one full of grenades and the other filled with 30/30 rounds. From the ammunition table she slipped an unloaded Kampfpistole into a holster on her right thigh and carefully packed its ammunition into a Mokeskin pouch which she then hung on her belt.

    A Ruger LC9 was placed at the small of her back, a Glock 39 on her left thigh and a pair of Beretta Cheetahs in each dragon hide boot. Slinging a sniper rifle across her back Ciar then hefted a heavy grenade launcher onto her left shoulder. One handedly she shoved a bunch of extra ammo into another Mokeskin pouch, which then moved to hang from her belt, and some spare revolvers and an assault rifle into another pouch which she hung on the opposite side from the ammo.

    Looking up with a strange glint in her grey eyes she nodded to each of her comrades. "Anyways. Hello to you all. With all this stuff I'm guessing we're getting ready to lock, load and roll out."

    Nolan's shoes padded softly against the flawlessly clean floors. He brushed a small patch of dust off of his jacket, smiling as he walked down the long hallway leading to the training arena.

    He strolled into the weapons room, his eyes falling on the group. Clearly, the boy would be their biggest problem, appearing to be the least experienced of the group. Not that it really mattered. With a course of this level of difficulty, all of them were at equal risk. He turned his attention to his butler.

    "Thank you, Geoffrey. I will begin the briefing," He gestured to the door, "You may take your position in surveillance." The man nodded and swiftly left the room, leaving Nolan alone with the team.

    "Now that you all are sufficiently armed, I suppose it's time for a pep talk," He scanned them with his icy glare, making eye contact with each of them, "Each of you is feeling fear in one form or another. For some of you, it's more pronounced. For others, it's subdued enough that you can pretend it's not even there. Regardless, it's there for a reason. Listen to your fear, and it may just keep you alive."

    "I'm sure most of you have noticed the sounds of explosives. That's because there's a war outside. A real war with real people.... sort of," He gave a small ghostly smile, "They're technically not alive. So don't worry about killing them. And you will be required to kill them if you expect to be successful, or avoid major injury."

    The smile disappeared from his face, "As for your objective; you must enter enemy territory and find the commander's bunker, in which there will be both a map, and a commander. Retrieve the map and exit the bunker, and you will be transported back here, where I will evaluate your performance."

    He turned to exit the room, when he was reminded of a critical point he had wanted to make, and turned to face the group once again, "And another thing. Teamwork is critical. You go out there thinking you can tackle this on your own," his eyes landed on Karma for a short moment, "And you will most certainly fail. Miserably."

    Nolan gave the group a cheerful smile, "Go out there, have fun, and don't die." And he left to join Geoffrey in the surveillance room.

    ((OOC: They can't actually die in this exercise. If any of them were to receive a would-be fatal injury, or get separated from the group for a certain period of time, they would be immediately transported back to the briefing room. Nolan would never tell them that. He'll say that it was to make the training more realistic, but really he just likes screwing with people))

    -WIP-

    Karma barely glanced away from the blades as she contemplated each and every one of them, picking a few up and flipping them about with flicks of her wrist before setting them down again. Finally deciding on dual dao swords and sliding them onto her back - blades crossing - after shrugging on the scabbard that kept them there. Slipping a few dozen throwing knives into the pockets of air that usually held her daggers, the girl continued down the table, debating the blades once more.

    After adding a few more daggers here and there and storing them in her pockets of air, the girl found herself at the projectiles table, her eyes lighting up with barely contained glee. The throwing stars were first, into the space above her wrists, then the smoke pellets, and the caltrops. Smirking at the things she stored with a bit of vampire speed, faster than anyone's eyes could follow.

    Clipping a Scorpion off the wall onto her hip, she turned toward the familiar sound of Nolan's footsteps, pausing to punch Ciar gently on the shoulder before she leaned her hips against the table, watching and listening as she crossed her ankles. The irrational disbelief that came with the statement he aimed at her - and only her - was stomped down easily, even as her eyes strayed away from his. If she couldn't do it alone, then she and Cia could. The others would be deadweight. She supposed it was to be expected, seeing as this was supposed to be a challenge. Having to look out for others was something she wasn't exactly used to, but that was what training was for, right?

    "Also." Geoffrey piped up, a manic grin flitting over his features for a split second before he cooled his expression. "Karma's Team Captain. Everything you do is her decision. Should things go wrong, it will be her fault. Should it be insubordination, you will all get punished. Equally." Turning from them, the butler started walking toward Nolan. "You have five minutes to strategize."

    Running a hand through her hair, Karma turned to the others, not bothering to ask opinions or names. She knew them all already. They were running out of time. "We should probably stay stealth." Karma said, getting straight to the point. "It sounds like there are tons of people. We'll never make it if we have to fight the whole way through." She frowned, pushing her thoughts away. "We should try for stealth the whole time, the less fighting, the less difficult this whole thing will be." She glanced at each of them, her gaze lingering on each before going to the other.

    "Any ideas while we've actually got time to talk?"

    Ashleen just smirked, rolled her eyes and then nodded her greeting to the girl before she went back to carefully picking out blades, gazing at them, holding them in her hand before sticking them in the places she hadn't already stuffed explosives.

    Spinning a pistol carefully in her hands, and grimacing slightly at the larger rifles, not particularly interested in any of them, but figuring she couldn't logically get away without one, she frowned slightly, glancing at the man who had spoke. She had to suppress a snort, listen to her fear, hadn't she been doing nothing but that for almost half a year now?

    Her eyes flicked around at the group appraisingly. Teamwork? Ash had never been good with playing with others. More of, she had never been good at listening to others. She supposed she could manage if-

    Her eyes flicked to Karma at the butler's announcement. Her blue gaze darkened slightly. This might have just gone downhill. She had barely been able to listen to Tre on many occasions - and many others didn't listen at all - now she had to outright listen to orders, from someone she liked to be sure... but the respect it required for Ashleen to accept orders from a person willingly was most definitely not there for the girl who she suspected played worse with others than she did.

    "Someone's got to watch the kid," she stated simply, hitching her finger over to Afonka, "Potential or not, he has no idea what he's doing."

    Continuing to slip tiny little knives and other throwing weapons into wherever he could, he paused, fiddling with the shuriken in his fingers. Frowning, he turned towards the sound of footsteps, blinking hard at Ciar. She - she was part of this too? Was everyone part of the mafia? It seemed like every prefect was in the mafia. His frown deepening at the thought, he shook it away, giving his fellow Hrabroat a smile and a little wave before pushing the last projectile into place.

    Moving towards the guns, he stared up at them, his brown eyes wide. Clipping a revolver into his belt, he pulled a rifle off the gate, clipping it to his back and then almost immediately staggering from the weight. Pulling it off, he glanced around, hoping no one had noticed before replacing it with a smaller rifle.

    Looking up at the man who entered, he nodded along to his words. Fear? He was terrified. Wiping his sweaty hands on the legs of his pants, he licked his lips nervously. Kill people? He didn't want to, but if it was that or staying alive...he'd do anything. He had to go back to school, he had to graduate, he had to see Tessa - there were a lot of reasons he had to live.

    He was good working as a team. If anything, Quidditch had really prepared him for this. Well, not for the actual fighting part, but he could work with people. Glancing over at the other man and Karma, he gave his team captain a nod. They knew what they were doing. He didn't. And he'd do whatever she told him to do.

    And if stealth meant the chances of him dying or killing people decreased, he'd do it. Giving Karma a nod, he rubbed his clammy hands, barely noticing that he was shaking. Blinking at Ashleen, he shrugging the comment off. "It's what we were all thinking. I'll probably get you all killed. I'll just -" Afonka gestured around the room, "- stay here. Learn how to use these."

    Ciar hid her face behind an emotionless mask as the man spoke. She was sure she recognized him from someplace other than the Christmas dinner she had attended with Lucifer. Her mind worked quickly in amongst her Occlumency shields making sure no one could tell what she was thinking. Then it clicked. This man was the same person Zephan described as their parents killer. She would have to personally thank him one day.

    Turning to her fellow combatants the Irish teen kept her opinions to herself and her mask in place. She wasn't much of a follower but if there was one thing she could do fairly well it was manipulate from the background. Make suggestions that Karma would be hard pressed to find holes in. She wasn't a warrior for nothing after all.

    Nodding towards Afro the teen commented, "Leave the kid to me. He'll be fine once someone shows him the ropes." Ciar looked the boy up and down her canine tooth coming down to nibble her lip slightly in thought. Circling around him with a calculating look she commented, "Yes, stealth will be our best option however there may be occassions when enemies will prevent our way forward and there may not be time to circle back and try to find a different route."

    She unslung the rifle from Afro's back and instead exchanged it off the rack for a sniper rifle slightly smaller than her own. Going through the supplies she equipped a high powered scope and a silencer to the gun. Presenting it to Afonka she quipped, "You're coming and you'll be in the middle of the group. The rest of us are skilled fighters in range and hand to hand combat. You, however, I know play Quidditch. No matter what position you play it is essential to have good aim. A sniper rifle will do you better as it will help us dispatch our enemy from a distance. Shoot at most twice from a single position and then we'll move on. It will prevent the enemy from deducing our position based on where we are shooting from."

    "Karma, you are our Captian but if insubordination is what it takes to save our hides then I don't give a damn. Every so often you do have a reckless streak but you usually have a cunningness to over ride it. I am not used to taking orders laying down and I'm sure Ash isn't either. Tactics and strategic positioning will have to be discussed together when we're out there. because I don't do anything blindly." A feral, wolf like smile crossed her face. "Does that sound fair to everyone?"

    Karma listened to each of them, beginning to pace as she thought. One arm folded across the small of her back as the other brought a finger to her lips. She nodded along to most things, pausing and looking at Afonka for a few moments before pacing again. Behind her brown eyes her mind was whirring, swirling through plans and stategies taught to her by Nolan and trained into her being until it was nearly second nature.

    "If I was gonna lead you blindly, would I have asked for your opinion? I know we're a team. There's four of us, not one. Not two. But if we're hard pressed to make a split second decision, I will be the one to make it. And you'll either follow, or you won't. Whether you do or not is going to be put on me anyway, so you might as well." Her words were clipped as she stopped before them, meeting each of their eyes. With a raised eyebrow at Ciar, the Slytherin paused, meeting the Irish girl's eyes squarely and staring her down. "I doubt there will be time for a council at every crossroad, and if we happen to be under fire, I don't think we'll have time for a rational discussion. It will fall to me to make the decisions, and if you have a problem with that, there's the door." She waved a hand toward the way they'd each entered, the movement obviously open to each of them, though her eyes did not stray from Ciar's. "I will ask your opinions every chance we have, but I doubt I will be have time to mull over each and every one, and if it's a knee jerk reaction a situation needs, it'll be my knee jerk reaction it gets. If you have a problem with that, there, again, is the door." Her arm remained outstretched, still gesturing invitingly to the exit. "I will not tolerate insubordination, and neither would you, had you been appointed Captain, Ciar. If it is the only and I stress only way to save us, then you are welcome to it, but if it is because you judge a decision I make, or you think you can do better, there, again, is the door." While her eyes stayed on Ciar, it was clear her words were for all of them, and she had yet to blink. "If you follow my orders, even the ones that you deem the wrong decision, the punishment will fall to me, and only me. If you decide to take matters into your own hands, it will fall on each of us, and that will be our downfall."

    For the briefest moment, she debated telling them that none of them would die. If she knew anything, she knew Nolan, and he wouldn't really put them in any danger. Well, mortal danger anyway. None of them would die tonight, even if they took a shot to the heart or a blade to the throat, of that she was certain. She almost said it, but something kept her back. They wouldn't try as hard if they didn't fear death, and it would be best if they were trying their hardest. The fear of death was one of the strongest motivators in the universe, and she would need them trying their hardest.

    "We have less than three minutes. If you're going to leave, do it now. We need to finish strategizing, and that can't be done if we don't know who's going to be here and who's not."

    Her gaze finally left Ciar, going from to Afonka. "Ciar's plan for you is a good one, you will do best in the middle of us. We won't leave anyone behind. You have assets and talents to put toward this group too, we just have to find them and use them to our advantage. We need you."

    Next, she focused on Ash. "By the way you've armed yourself, I can tell you know your way around with explosives. We may need a diversion, or a quick way to clear a room, and with all that gunfire on the other side, it's sure to go unnoticed. We need you as well."

    Her eyes flickered from one of them to the other before settling back on Ciar. "As for you, well, you're one of the most vigorously trained here, other than myself. You know your way with weapons, and you strategize better than me at times. We need you, probably more than we need me."

    Shrugging, she started pacing again, before stopping after one cycle. "We really do need all four of us, and I'd rather you all stayed so we can just go get this damned map and get this over with. We were picked by Nolan because of our potential, and our skill, and I really do believe we can beat this little game of his. Together." She grinned invitingly, her eyes flicking to the make shift wall separating them from their target, and challenge. "What do you say?"

    Ash rolled her eyes and held her hands up in the air, "Don't look at me, I've got strict orders to show up and stay here - see I'm taking orders already; you don't get to get rid of me that easily. I may be a bitch about it... but I'll listen, mostly."

    Flicking her knife, the one she had kept, out of the spot she had stashed it she began unconcsiously flipping it over in her hands.

    She snorted and rolled her eyes, the tention was getting on her nerves already.

    "Is this this the part where we throw in a team hug? Cause no offence to you guys, but as I already said... I have touching issues. I'll vote for skipping it infavour of plans."

    She hitched her finger over at Karma, "I like Captain Britian's plan over there, I mean... good enough as any. Not that I was ever a plan person, probably going to get me killed one of these days. Oh well, at least I'll go down in a planless blaise of glory."

    Shrugging her shoulders, the girl continued to smack her gum, and tucked a strain of hair that was falling out back under her hat.

    Blinking over at Ciar, an unreadable expression crossed Afonka's face. Was she serious? Did she really think he had a chance? Whether she meant it or not, it brought a smile to his lips and lifted his spirits. As she exchanged his rifle for another one, he nodded along to her words. If he was in the middle, he was less likely to mess up so badly that the rest of them would end up injured. It was a good idea, if he was planning on going. And he still wasn't sure about that.

    Looking from Ciar to Karma, eyes wide, he took a very slight step back, watching the two of them. The tension between them - if anything, that needed to be resolved. Or else they'd never make it out of here alive.

    Rubbing his neck softly as Karma spoke to him, he gave her a small smile. When she put it that way...he almost felt needed.

    A tiny little smirk twitching on his lips as he glanced over at Ashleen, he shook his head slightly.

    Had he made up his mind? Was he going to stay or go? Shuffling slightly, he glanced at each of them, gnawing on his bottom lip before he finally said, "I'll stay. I'll try my best. I - I'll do this."

    "Just don't get me killed," the Irish girl said with just a hint of a growl. "If the man who killed my stupid parents is the one that planned all of this then I have no doubt he may decide that it's time to get rid of the heirs as well. However if I believe your knee jerk reaction is only going to get us into deeper trouble I will not hesitate to make my voice heard. Whether the punishment falls on just you or on all of us makes no difference. You yourself said we are in this together. If one of us fails then in a way we all do."

    Crossing her arms she leaned against the table, grenade launcher still on her shoulder. "As for strategy the only thing we need is the goal. Get in, get the map, get out, and stay alive. Tactics will completely depend on the terrain and our enemy. It is not something we can really discuss in here. Karmz, I'm suggesting that you lead the way with Ashleen immediately behind you. If we need to clear a room or passage she's close at hand with the explosives to back up your keen eyesight. Afro will follow and use his sniper and projectiles as needed. I'll take up the rear and cover our backs. What say you to that?" Her grey eyes took on a glint of fearlessness, as they always did when she was planning something big or she was preparing for battle.
