    World of Milara - Day 1 of recruitment - SHORT

    Post  Firaga777 on Thu Jan 06, 2011 11:12 pm

    Goal

    -Put through the first batch of new recruits to a quick training exercise before heading off

    RP-ers involved


    -Calvin
    -Zlair
    -Eric
    -Haruka
    -Sev
    -Lumina & Seth
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Calvin reviewed the 4 sheets of paper given to him by his colleagues. “New recruits…and her?” He questioned himself. “This is fairly early in the recruitment process, but there is no harm to integrate them first. After all, less work for me and MX Corp. could use a set of new hands. Especially since the war ended…”

    He got up from his chair and walked along the empty corridors of MX Corp. It was fairly unusual for MX Corp to be this quiet but Calvin found this to be calm and soothing; a better atmosphere for new recruits to adapt to.

    He reached the recruitment room and opened the door. A grand auditorium greeted him and occupying it were 3 people.

    “So…you must be the new recruits!” Calvin announced while indicating for them to come to the door. “My name is Calvin Sheung. I am a MX Squad Manager and for now, your new Squad Leader. You will be seeing me quite a bit while you get use to MX Corp.”

    “Even though we are at an early stage for recruitment, you 3 have been reviewed and accepted. You are now working for MX Corp with wages and bonuses from missions. You all are given full access to the MX Corp. building and its archives, but the arsenals and labs are off limits unless accompanied by your Squad Leader or a person of high rank.”

    “So you guys, can you introduce yourselves to me and everyone else before we head off?” Calvin asked while looking around at the 3 nervous people. Lastly, he fixed his eye on the girl for a brief second before looking back at the guys.

    Eric greets the man in front of him with a warm tone. "Ichiro Eric, It is a pleasure to meet you, Captain Sheung. I will work hard to ensure that this training exercise will not be our last together." Eric is uneasy, particularly because the recruit next to him seems... odd. The young man seems to be of normal Milaran blood, but there is something unfathomable about him...

    Zlair was listening to the music from his headphones; he turned the volume to 50% after the man had appeared. Zlair had used his orb ornament before the person standing before him had entered the room who calls himself Calvin Sheung. He had decided to join MX corps in hopes of finding more about his past as well as earning money considering he was living alone in a church; even then he didn’t really know much about what the MX corps does.

    Without moving his eyes, the enhanced peripherals from his transformed eyes allowed him to see each person in the room. After analyzing everyone in the room he closed his eyes, listening to the music before opening his eyes seconds later and releasing the transformation. Even then he would always be on guard not knowing anything about the people standing around him.

    He moved his eyes to look at the people beside him again. They all seemed like normal people, but he himself looks normal...but there is nothing normal about him.He looked at the girl with jet black hair. She seemed like a girl that would be beginning high school; of course he knew nothing about school since all his knowledge came from the spell that grants him his human form.

    After the person that calls himself Eric finished introducing himself, with a sigh he pulled down his head phones till they hung on his neck while they were still playing. “Hi.. My name is Zlair…” said Zlair as he introduced himself before putting his headphones back on and turning his attention to the girl waiting for her introduction.

    ════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════
    A slam was heard within a small room. Something had stopped creating noise as it was turned off by a hand. Haruka rolled over and brought her knees close to her body as she faced the wall with sightly open eyes. There was not much light that had lit the room. There was no window as how Haruka had preferred for since she was young and still was able to see perfectly well. But never the less, she did not enjoy the sun itself as well.

    Today was for her was a new start. She had gotten a word that she was assigned to a squad that was just formed as the first squad and she was added into it. She didn't mind really. She thought maybe, it would bring new entertainment to her life other then heading off to school oh so early in the morning. Maybe another 5 minutes... Haruka turned off to face her alarm clock that she had just turned off. It read 6:34am in it's bright red to the dimness of her room. ...I'll get up. She had decided to get up as she figured that, she would take a while before getting ready. Rubbing her eye as she got up, she grabbed her set of clothing that she prepared the other day and headed off to the bathroom that was linked to her small room in a hallway of MX Corp.

    After her shower and morning, Haruka walked out of her room and went to the Lounge picked up some breakfast as it was also open for anyone who was hungry. She walked in with a rather large interest in a cup of coffee. She wasn't too hungry in the mornings as she still felt tired as if the lights in the hallways were draining life out of her. Stirring in some half and half and sugar, she picked it up and went on the go. "Hello and good morning Haruka! Gald to see you up. Ready for today's work I suppose?" She stopped and turned away to see it was her formal co-worker who happens to always find her in the morning have a short greeting before starting the day. "Ah, I guess so. I don't think I would have much to do." Haruka always spoke in a softer tone. As if the words had danced off into thin air and were meant to not be heard. But as her co-worker got use to it. She never had to raise her voice for anything. "Well well! sounds like someone's gonna be bored! Haha! Well, I got quite a lot of duty to do so we'll see each other tomorrow! Bye Haruka!"
    Haruka waved softly as she watched the co-worker's figure fade. She had figured that, she would need the time to finish her cup of coffee before entering into the meeting room as Haruka also disliked to waste her money and food.

    The door opened with rather softly, like many other doors in MX Crop. She wasn't surprsied that it was empty and for her to be the first person to be inside. She did live at MX Corp. and everyone else had to get some kind of transportation to get to MX Corp. in the first place. She started her walk down the long way to the stage of the auditorium. She sat down on on the legde that was clsoe to the wall so she lay against it. Pulling out her ipod with it's earphones as she waited silently, she picked a few songs as time passed and played a few games. She had stopped listening to her music at the right time before someone had entered the room.

    She listened to the soft but echoed noise everyone made without moving her face to see who it was. She had her head sightly facing down and looked at her empty lap. She wore a simple dark wash jeans, a white tank top under a black jacket with a rock style to it. Her hair was also simple. It was nicely combed without much of a mess when she walked in the room and was particularly fuzzy-free. From Haruka had listened to, she had noticed the first voice that spoke of a certain man who definitely someone she knew. A certain someone who had saved her life. They never had really spoken to each other ever since. She did have a feeling to herself as she wondered about speaking to him or not. But she felt that, she shouldn't step into someone's life over one thing.

    The next two introductions to her were rather flat. She always had knew people for being rather mouthful of themselves and speak a lot when it came time for anything. she didn't feel like complaining so early in the morning. She noticed that one of the recruit had turned their attention on her and it made her feel rather uncomfortable. She turned down a little more to the floor and had a sight blush of embarrassment as she wasn't use to people looking at her for such an reason. ".. I'm Haruka. Nice to meet you three. I look forward to working with all of you-u..." She raised her voice to a normal level of tone, to be heard so then she wouldn't have to restate what she said, making her feel more uncomfortable. She finally decided to look up at everyone that was present in the room. Noticing all of their faces for a brief moment. She had a feeling that her Captain had motioned them to the door so she got up and started to walk near the doorway and stopped rather far from Calvin.

    “Alright guys…and girl, follow me and I’ll lead you to our first exercise! And a small tour while we reach the training grounds.” Calvin announced when the 3 recruits gathered around him. He turned around and they all returned to the quiet corridors of MX Corp.

    “The ground floor is the public area, where all guests and invitees rest, wait, or continue with their business. However unlike them, you all get access to the back area, where all us MX employees work.” Calvin said while pushing open the double doors marked ‘Employees only’.

    They continued along the continuous corridor with multiple rooms on the sides. “This is the Manager’s Department. As you can see, we have a lot of employees in MX Corp. The Manager’s Department also includes Examiner’s Office and the Arsenal.”

    “And here we are,” said Calvin as he opened another set of double doors leading to an outdoor field. “The fields; not the training ones. On the side, you can see the local restaurant and inn where the employees can rest and mingle amongst another…and on the farrrrr right…”

    Calvin led the group to a set of Circle Seals on the ground. “Our training grounds. Actually, these seals are the gates to the training grounds. We have lots so a nice set of Seals can save a ton of space, especially in a city like Milara.” He let the recruits rest for a moment before continuing, “Alright, everyone, step onto the White Seal.”
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    A bright flash and a whooshing sound later, Calvin and his recruits are standing before a heavy forested area. “Our training grounds…well, one of them. We bring newcomers and trainees here for basic demonstration of skills and to get used to the areas surrounding our city. Do not worry, this is a separate realm built by magic, so you all are in no real danger…unless we want it.”

    “Now, onto your exercise,” Calvin said a little more quietly. He pointed with 2 of his finger at the forest in front of them. The trees parted there, leaving a straight, wide hallway with a few branches here and there. “Along this path are 3 buttons and 3 targets. They are easy enough to find and there will also be a trap guarding each button. Your task: press all 3 buttons and destroy the 3 targets as a team. I will be waiting at the end of the path. If you are ever stuck or in need of help, call out for me and I will arrive as quickly as possible.”

    “So…are you guys ready? You may start!” Calvin put his hand on the ground and requested for the Training Ground’s console to teleport him to the end of the path.

    Eric looks at the path in front of him: it is a grassy area, but the walls look as if they were a series of houses with windows, but no doors. As Eric proceeds down the path, the other two trainees follow.

    Further down the path, there is a small clearing, and 3 separate corridors; one on each side of the square room. Eric tells the others in an authoritative but gentle voice: "Alright, it seems that there are three paths, and three of us. Although the logical path to take would be one corridor per person, we don't know what we're dealing with, so we should stick together."

    Eric takes towards the corridor to his left. Filled with twists and turns, Eric makes a mental map of the relative path he takes so he won't get disorientated. As he nears another clearing, he hears a voice that sings a lovely melody that pleases Eric's ears. Just as he is about to enter the clearing, he remembers the words of Calvin reverberating in his mind:
    Calvin wrote:there will also be a trap guarding each button...
    Eric imagines what awaits him, and rushes towards the clearing.

    The sight that greets Eric an the others is something that none of them expected. A tree stump at least one meter in diameter is in the middle of the clearing, which is just high enough to sit on. Although it cannot be made out because of the distance between the party and the tree stump, it is obvious that a feminine figure is sitting on the stump, and singing with a beautiful melodic voice.

    Eric and company walk up to the person, and it becomes apparent that the person wearing an old-style dress in a deep velvet and silk detached sleeves is not a woman, but in fact a man in thigh-high black stockings and velvet dress slippers. He seems to be roughly 18, but with a remarkably clear face with sky blue eyes and golden blond hair that flows to his hips. Eric thinks to himself: "Trap... I see what Calvin meant when he said that..." as he walks towards the figure and introduces Haruka, Zlair and finally himself.

    As Zlair entered the clearings, he closed his eyes and reactivated his orb ornament. As he opened his eyes, they were once again the same colour as when they were in the room, black sclera with green iris and black feline pupils.

    Zlair began scanning the surrounding clearings, looking for what Calvin had said was a trap. As he saw Eric’s and Haruka’s face gaze forward, he too gazed forward as well. If Zlair had not activated his ornament, then in front of him would be a feminine figure on a tree stump. Instead, being able to see with perfect vision, it is revealed that the womanly figure is actually a trap, literally. Sitting on the tree stump was a man in a dress, thigh highs, with velvet dress slippers. He had long golden blonde hair dropping to his hips as well as sky blue eyes.

    Having never been at school, he had all the time he wanted during his teenage years. He had seen many things on the streets while other kids would be at school; he knew that the “thing” in front of him was a trap, in other words a guy dressed as a woman, and a good one at that.

    Eric began introducing the three of them. Remembering this was a test to determine their abilities, he knew there was more than meets the eye with the trap. He remained on guard ready to stop any attacks directed at him or his team mates.

    What worried him the most was how Haruka would react as she seemed like a 15 year old not knowing how to deal with these kinds of people. Zlair kept her in vision, in hopes he would be able to stop her from doing anything that could cause trouble. As Zlair crept closer he turned his head to face Haruka. As he began staring at Haruka more clearly, he noticed her petite body frame as well as her pale skin even more. Suddenly Zlair felt a sudden rush of embarrassment before he turned away but moved his eyes to face her.

    Haruka simply followed along as the tour had began. Sadly, she felt it was not purposeful enough for her. As of course, she already knew where she was heading. She prevented to be listening as she secretly put on her earphones and turned on her ipod and followed behind everyone else. She didn't mean to be rude but she felt the need as she was slowly remembering what had happened that day.

    After the tour that Calvin had given them was fairly shorter then she had expected but other-wise she decided not to really care. Ahhh... this training ground... Should of have figured anyways... Haruka turned off her ipod quickly and pushed it back into her jeans. She hoped that no one really notice at all. Then Haruka had sat down at the circle seals that had been in the training grounds ever since. Then she got up after Calvin had said and stepped into the real area of the training ground. The sun was shinely bright down from the transparent walls that protected them from the outside world Ahhh...This kinda too bright... She wanted to take out her sunglasses but she figured with her squad mates picking up on such a detail made her feel rather low of herself. She decided not to them get as she could feel them from within her jacket.

    Listening carefully to Calvin, Haruka already had a good general idea of how this warm up was like. She did had gone though some training before hand rather then being very brand new to this certain training ground they were at. She didn't bother to say anything about how much she knew about the place and that she wasn't a new recruit. She didn't want to seem odd already on the first day.

    She noticed the tone of voice that Eric had used. She first nodded and then followed after him, of course, at the end. Behind Zlair as she didn't really quite remember the place as well as she did when she was younger. As a short walk, then just as Eric had heard along with Zlair, Haruka held her head to that general direction as if she was alarmed by it. She couldn't figure out if she was hearing someone outside of the training ground or something else. She wasn't too sure and soon she started to puzzled. That was never a singing person with such a voice from what she knew had been in place for any purpose in a training ground. She tagged along, walking a bit faster then normal and was looking over everyone's shoulder as she was a bit shorter. It wasn't long before they had reached the voice to see clearly of who it was.

    Eric had rushed off first and then she followed with lower speed and met up with Eric to his left. She focused her attention to details of the person, who stopped singing as they had came close to the clearing. Haruka had remembered the tree, a very small smile played on her face as she only looked at the tree. Then her attention fall upon the figure that sit in it. She noted the body figure first. How it did not look close to a woman's. Then Haruka's face dropped just a little. Far from being noticeable. Her mind noted much after as well, the thigh-high black stockings and velvet dress slippers, a clear face with sky blue eyes and golden blond hair that flows to the hips. Haruks'a arms had stayed still as the rest of her body as she wonder about how this man had gotten into MX Corp.

    Haruka had shook her face a little as she noticed Eric taken the first step in talking to the man. She raised her eyebrow just a little as it dropped quickly as soon as it appeared. She followed after him, also noting Zlair was well. Eric had began to speak with him as introductions had began once again. She wondered if the man really cared about knowing them or not. As she knew was standing in training grounds, she knew the man being here must of have a purpose. She slowly reached for her sunglasses as the sun was really starting to get to her. But something she had noticed before fully even touching her sunglasses as she saw from the corners of her eyes. Zlair had taken steps closer to her and she felt a little uncomfortable the space in between of them. She pretended not to notice as she slowly moved her head back to refocused on what was at hand. Only a seconds had passed as she looked back Zlair, wondering if he was still looking. Sure enough, he still was. Haruka frowned in sight confused as she felt like he was eying on her for a weird reason. Then the bright rays of the sun had gotten to her. Readjusting her head again, she pulled out her sunglasses and put them on as. She wondered if Zlair had watched her every move.

    “Hmmm? What do we have here?” Calvin questioned while looking at a projected screen at the end of the exercise path. He’s heard rumors of a program called the ‘Trap Man’ in the training grounds. The program was mysteriously accepted because of its role and ever since, Calvin paid no attention to it…until now.

    Calvin directed the Training Ground Console (TGCon) to open a channel of communication to the program.

    Code:
    >state purpose


    Trap Man >purpose: to safely test exerciser’s ability to handle stressful situations involving a lone target.

    >state safety level


    Trap Man >safety level: 3/10. Not recommended for ages 15 and under.

    >state method


    Calvin read the following text and chuckled. It wasn’t his idea of training recruits, but he was willing to give the program a run before checking up on other traps.

    Code:
    >start song


    Starting song 1

    Moments later on the screen, he saw his 3 recruits enter the clearing, apparently drawn by the song. They seemed to be talking to the program but taking no further actions. “Well,” Calvin thought, “We should spice things up! It looks like Eric is taking charge. Let’s see what happens when the leader is in a situation.” With that, he entered the code:

    Code:
    >start program
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Trap Man was ‘listening’ to Eric as it was receiving its instructions. After the introductions, he calculated it was the right time to execute its main program.

    “So now Eric…you…are…sooo….HANDSOME!” Trap Man exclaimed and lunged forward to embrace Eric in a comfortable but vicelike bear hug. The Trap Man then started to comment on Eric’s appearance and suggests anyway to bring out his ‘manliness’ and ‘beautiful feature’.

    While the Trap Man was doing that, it was actually activating its powers. Firstly, it binded Eric to him and preventing him from freeing himself. Secondly, it began to form a temporal bubble around Eric’s Device as it was distracting the recruits with its odd behavior. The temporal bubble bas used by the Trap Man to prevent recruits from using their talismans or devices to free themselves and voiding the point of this lesson, but magic cannot be perfectly restricted. It continued on with its odd behavior, shocking Zlair and Haruka, but most of all, Eric, the target…and their leader.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Calvin watched all of this happening. “Well, I would normally disapprove of this type of behavior…” Calvin commented in distain, “But either way works. I better check up on the other traps so we don’t have anything as…odd as this.”

    Eric continues to struggle, to no avail. "I feel rather conflicted about this," Eric tells the trap as he continues to struggle. "However, I have no choice!"

    Eric puts a mental image of the Evoker rising from the inside of his wrist and sliding into his right hand, and sure enough it is in his right hand. As he flicks the sparker mechanism, he feels his body pulse once with energy, but for some reason cannot swap forms. "crap! can't do anything! In that case..." Eric groans as the trap continues his embrace, getting tighter by the second. He moves his arm to the backside of the man, positioning his hand within reach of the man's shoulders. As he begins to have difficulty breathing, he activates the flame jet that the Evoker can produce, and uses the extreme heat of the flame to burn the trap's arm off. Freed from his pursuer's grasp, he backflips with an almost inhuman speed, rejoining the group. It is only now that Eric notices that the man's arm is not stinking of the smell of burnt flesh, but in fact smelling of burnt plastic; The trap is not human, but a machine!

    Eric puts the Evoker back into the holder, and slowly draws his Katana. "Let's finish this. Since you show hostility, I have no choice but to defeat you." Eric says in an almost too low to hear voice as the mindless machination walks closer with a stump for a left shoulder, and a partially warped face from the heat.

    As the trap was being melted by Eric, Zlair began scanning the surrounding areas for possible threats of the same kind. From the looks of what was happening to Eric… he did not want to receive the same kind of punishment….or training. Seeing nothing else dangerous in the surrounding vicinity he released his eyes. Knowing what Eric said earlier that they had to stick together; he could not just abandon Eric and move forward with Haruka. Even then there was something inside of him that made him want to leave Eric and move ahead with Haruka.

    Knowing he would have to help Eric, Zlair placed his right hand near his necklace. The claw and scale ornament began glowing. A second later the two ornaments shattered and reformed into a glowing ball of energy on Zlair’s right hand. As Zlair held the ball in front of him, it exploded causing the energy to fly out wrapping around his hands and legs as well as around his torso, thighs and arms. The energy transformed both his hands and feet into black demonic claws, while the energy on his thighs arms and torso just sank into his skin.

    Zlair took a sigh and relaxed as he closed his eyes; he was waiting for a gust of wind knowing that was when his element would be stronger. As soon as a gust of wind blew past him and into the direction of Eric and the Trap, he disappeared, Only to reappear a meter beside where Eric had landed.

    “My ornaments allow me to take on different forms on certain parts of my body. As you just witnessed the claw ornament gives me enhance speed and jump. I also control the element of wind, but I am only able to control it to flow around my body. Normally just this enhancement wouldn’t give me this much amount of speed, but by combining the two I can. Unfortunately, the maximum amount I can use is two ornaments at a time.” Explained Zlair as his head turned to face Haruka. What he had not told them was that the maximum was not two, but the more forms he used the more his Chimera blood begins to flow. “So what should we do now?” questioned Zlair as the trap master moved forward step by step.

    Eric holds out his right hand as a gesture for the other two to stay back. "I got this, you guys should try to find the button." Eric shouts as he resheathes his Katana. He then does something unexpected: he pulls out the portable bazooka, and chambers a round from the storage rack on his back. Eric does not line up the sights, for he begins to run towards the trap, who has his arm open and is showering him with compliments. Eric jumps up into the sky, and fires the bazooka straight down 10 meters directly above the trap, whose facial expression is a mixture of charm and disfigured horror. As Eric lands, there is a small crater where the trap used to be, and puts the bazooka away as bits of melted plastic and circuitry rain down in all directions. "You would never have understood me anyways," Eric coldly addresses the shattered remains as he uprights himself from his crouched landing posture. "Now to find that button..."

    As soon as the trap man had moved his arms, Haruka noticed it as it grabbed Eric. She pulled herself back and reached for one of the two daggers that she brought along with her. As she watched for a little, trying to understand what was happened at a faster rate to think before hand of what to do, darkness engulfed her whole upper body but her legs. She had activated her powers as the darkness disappeared soon after to reveal her new changed of clothes and her hair was done up. Her clothes showed a lot of skin but to Haruka, she was too use to it to bother with it at the moment. Her eyes, silver colored shined sightly behind her sunglasses which lighten the dark lens to reveal her new eye color. Her face dropped completely to a very serious emotion was being expressed.

    ...I don't think I need t-... Haruka watched in sight oddness as Eric was trying to fight off the trap himself. She relaxed a little as it didn't seem too bad until she noticed shortness of breathe. Bring up her dagger to her upper body, she saw that Eric was trying hard to get the trap off but something distracted as Zlair, took a turn to change his form as well. She noticed the few changes that did surprise her as she never really seen before. Haruka listened his explainion to what his powers could extend to but she got lost. Her attention was not fully on Zlair as she was watching Eric, waiting for anything that would need her to jump in and be some help.

    Then the question that Zlair put out made her change her expression on her face to a more softer normal but it still held it's seriousness. "I'm sure Eric has something in mind..." To her, Eric did seem to be the type that would become a leadership as she noticed a bit of his leadership skills as he had lead them here in the first place. Sure enough, she was right. After Eric had motioned them to stay back and said not to worry, she watched as Eric had turned many things that she felt was 'over-the-top' to try and get the trap off. She sighed just sightly as soon as she saw Eric pull out a bazooka and shot the trap with it, blowing it up into pieces.

    "Ahh...let's go find that button" As she repeated what Eric had said to Zlair without having to face him. She held out her dagger still as she took a left towards the left side of the clearing. A piece of the trap flew and landed in front of her. She kicked it just sightly away as she noticed something that was distracting to her. She walked up to it to see a very detailed glass box that was very much like the grass in the fields. Inside as she could tell was a big red button. She knew already that it was the correct they need to push down on to move on.

    Haruka raised her arm that was holding her dagger and slammed it down not hard on the glass at an angle that the pieces of the glass would not even hit her body. The pieces of the glass didn't go far either. As only edges of the box was around, she pushed the button down and it locked down. She stood back and faced Zlair and Eric. "We can move on if we don't have anything else to be done in this area. I found the button." As Haruka was about to take steps towards her squad mates, something caught her attention as it shined a light at an angle that blind her left eye to a certain degree. She flinked and rolled down on the grass to the right as a arrow flew and missed Zlair's head as it disappeared in deeper of the forest area.

    Haruks's face dropped back to it's serious expression. She got up with much speed to the human eye and threw her dagger directly to the place she noted the arrow came from. A fairly loud cracking noise was heard as Haruka knew, her dagger must of gotten to where she wanted it to be. She turned to see if anyone was hurt. Everyone was fine as she sighed. "We need to be careful. Clearly we're not done in this area."

    “Now this trap, I like,” Calvin said to himself as he reviewed the next trap, “A machinated arrow tower. Probably one of A.C.’s works.”

    The tower was roughly around 4 meters tall and was surrounded by many horizontal steel rings. With a bit of magic and the power of the TGConsole, the magic or “energy” as Calvin prefers to call it, would be transferred from the tower to the rings. The energy is then redirected outward from the rings and almost immediately forms into an arrow.

    The reason it is machinated is that it sports a targeting system. “A pretty good one considering this to be a side project,” Calvin commented, “The tower has already spotted my squad and is using its long-range ring. Oh well, they’re going to have some difficulty pressing the button and target here considering the button is right beside the tower. The target is somewhere in the bushes around the tower’s clearing…yes! I see it.”

    Calvin thought of the second trap’s abilities and then thought, “Hmm….this can be a problem…” Calvin brought up the console commands and opened an audio channel to his squad.

    Where his squad is, a white, lit orb appears floating just above them. Calvin’s voice suddenly projected through the orb, “I see you have defeated the first trap. Good work troops!”

    “And good riddance,” Calvin said aside. He resumed speaking to his squad, “I guess you guys can already tell the second trap was already triggered. Please move back to the area where 3 corridors branch off and take the middle one. The arrows will not reach you until you arrive at the next clearing.”

    Calvin paused before continuing, “The next trap may seem too easy for your capabilities as demonstrated just now, so I will now include some rules:

    1.) The tower must stay intact this time. The button beside the tower is fragile and if it breaks…well, you guys are going to pay for it.

    2.) These arrows are non-lethal, but you still must treat them as lethal. You must not make physical contact with the arrow on your body at all cost! These arrows may sting, but military-grade bullets will kill.

    3.) The tower may not fire like a machine gun, but it does have considerable accuracy and it can multi-target; hence the multiple rings. Be on your guard.”

    That is all.”

    As the white orb disappeared, Calvin looked at the tower and sighed. “Shouldn’t be too easy now…”

    As Eric eradicated the mechanic trap, Zlair released his transformed parts. The demonic claws transformed back into energy and compressed back into the claw ornament. Suddenly, an arrow skimmed Zlair’s head. He turned around to see a dagger fly in the direction that the arrow came from; moments later there was a loud cracking noise. Suddenly a white orb appeared before the three of them, projecting Calvin’s voice and explaining what was happening. Immediately Zlair closed his eyes and reactivated his orb ornament, as he opened his eyes he stared into the distance where the arrow came from.

    “From what I can see the tower is approximately 60 meters in the direction of where the arrow was fired, also it is approximately 3 to 4 meters surrounded by many horizontal rings. I can also see Haruka’s dagger pierced one of the rings, but the dagger is still attached luckily” Explained Zlair as he stared off into the distance. ”Unfortunately since we have to follow Calvin’s orders we should probably turn around.”

    Zlair placed his right hand over his eyes as he closed them. “I can’t allow them to learn of all my ornaments so soon.” Zlair turned around to face Eric and Haruka; he removed his eyes and opened them. His eyes once again had black sclera, pupil and white iris. “ Also I think it would be a good idea to elect a leader, considering we are very disorganized as we don’t know what each of us are going to do” Said Zlair. “I elect Eric as the leader. “

    Haruka couldn't pick a choice if she shoudl get her dagger or not. As much as she dislike to wait, she also didn't like making people for her. But with er powers activated, she decided to think other-wise. Suddenly, Haruka's face sparked with emotions. "Ahh...lf you guys don't mind.. I need to get my dagger back..." She hoped it wasn't too much of a big issue for them. She didn't really need to run there. Haruka closed her eyes as she held her hands out, not too far from her. Darkness floated over the palms of her hands nicely as to the tower, darkness covered completely around the dagger was still stuck in the sheets of metal. Not too long after, the darkness floated down and her dagger appeared as the darkness went away.

    Haruka took a good look at the blade before putting it away. As she was doing so, she listened to what Zlair was speaking about. She stood for a while, looking at the ground before answering. She held her head up again and faced both of them at her distance that she's been standing at for quite sometime. "Electing a leader would helps us in better teamwork once we return to this task. I do suppose that you, Eric will be fine as a leader, if you agree that is." A small smile that was just barely noticeable played her face. She didn't want Eric to feel so pressured into taking the role of leader just because her and Zlair had both agreed to it.

    The moment Calvin closed the audio channel, a person appeared before him. An MX employee and a friend, Serai Faith presented to him documents. “Hello Calvin, I am here to give you an MX recruit document and a letter from the head of the Mage Labs. Oh and by the way, congratulations on your promotion…even though you’ve turned down the others.”

    “Thanks. I’m putting the new recruits through the standard training exercise,” Calvin indicated on the screen.

    “It looks like they are doing fine! I’ll see you around Calvin,” Serai said and sped towards the White Seal of the training grounds.

    “Right,” Calvin said before looking at the documents, “Hmmm…Sev. Medium to long range engagement…military background…interesting, the M82 assault rifle.” Unlike the assault rifles build and assigned to MX personnels, the M82 assault rifle was developed by the military and was given to veteran squads during the Great War. How this young recruit got his hands on one, Calvin wasn’t too sure but he suspects it has to do something with his military background.

    Calvin put aside the documents and read the letter from the head Mage. “What is he up to now?” Calvin questioned. “Experiment…field testing…twin dolls. Well, that can’t be a good thing…it sounds like a war machine. They are limited and can’t reach their full potential without their master. I may need to further question the Mage a bit more about this, but I suppose the training exercise can be used to observe their actions. I’ll accept both of them!”

    Calvin went back to the TGConsole and opened an audio channel to the entire MX building and announces, “Would Sev, Lumina, and Seth please report to the MX Auditorium. Once there, a floor laser guider will guide you to the recruit training exercise where you will be participating along with others.”

    Calvin stayed on the audio channel in case they needed any help and thought to himself, “Well, things just got a lot more interesting today.”

    Eric thinks about his response, and replies "I would not mind being the commanding officer for this exercise, but if we are to function properly as a squad, even as a temporary one, we should work out a permanent squad captain after this exercise."

    As the group reaches the junction, they are greeted by three unfamiliar faces. One man wears a suit and hat as if he were about to head off to a meeting. The other two have silver hair and eerily luminous eyes, with the female wearing an eye patch. Despite their appearance, Eric introduces themselves, and as the two parties exchange greetings and introductions, Eric steps forward to outline the current objectives and conditions. Eric finishes by giving a vague outline for the tactics in which to achieve the objective. "Once we get to the junction, we should try to get a preview of what the trap looks like. Since we can't destroy it, we'll have to either evade the arrows, or destroy them. If it's possible, I'd like to put up a barrier that effectively disables it's offensive capabilities, but we have no idea about the properties of the arrows themselves, or their piercing capabilities."
    -----
    As the company reach the outskirts of the clearing, Eric asks "Is there anyone that can clearly see the trap from here? the more prepared we are, the better." Although it is quite a distance off, a black tower can be seen in the horizon, but not enough to be seen with any degree of detail.

    Seth and Lumina were idling in the waiting room until an announcement came on air.

    "Ah Seth, we need to go to auditorium," exclaimed Lumina with much excitement.

    Seth replied curtly, attempting to hide his own excitement, "So it would seem.

    This was the first time the twins would be tested in cooperation with others, and also the first time they had left the sheltered life in the lab.

    They quickly made their way to the auditorium, taking note of the man in the striped suit.

    "Hello," they spoke in unison, while nodding towards the man. "We are pleased to work with you." They had observed a few human customs at the lab.

    Before long, a glowing red light appeared on the barren floor. The twins followed and eventually they saw the training grounds, where they reached the group who were appearing to have a serious discussion. They chose to wait until they were finished talking to approach them.

    "Hello, we are the twins, Lumina and Seth. We look forward to your cooperation in testing our bodies, Garnet and Platinum."

    Sevs walks closer with a friendly smile with his hand rubbing the back of his head. "Nice to meet everyone im Sev" as he greeted everyone with a smile and a handshake.

    As the formalities had been finished, Sev is quickly briefed on the situation.

    "a Trap eh?" he says, "lets have a closer look".

    a necklace drops from Sevs left sleeve with a crest attached to it. Suddenly magic begins to coarse around as the outline of some sort of head gear begins to shape, suddenly magic flows throughout the item as it phases in directly into his left hand.

    "its what i call a Gajitron multiscope my friends" Sev said as he be begins to crouch and examine the trap closely. he suddenly notices the entire trap and diagnoses the various flaws in its design.

    Sev quickly devises a plan utilizes the various equipment seen on Eric.

    "eric ready your sheild, i have a plan and it involves you tanking" Sev said as he quickly asked each member to play a role.

    Sev quickly focuses his magic into the crest as 8 sheild bits fly around the front of eric in a scattered pattern. "Commence plan when ready" sev said prepared to defend eric.

    "dont worry eric, from my calculations, my sheild in tangent with yours should be able to hold against the trap, promise".

    Eric raises his alloy shield, and advances on the arrow tower. As he advances, the arrow tower shoots an arrow at high velocity at Eric's exposed foot, but Sev's shield bit blocks the arrow, disintegrating it into a small puff of magical particles before dissipating it's energy into the surrounding atmosphere.

    Eric continues advancing on the target shouting "Okay, everyone! let us advance on the target together!" as the tower's rings start to glow simultaneously. The arrow tower flings two arrows; one on a direct path towards Sev, and one that seems to fly above the group. The first arrow is blocked by Sev's shield bit, but the second arrow bends and hits the spot where Haruka was standing just a fraction of a second before, sending her rolling out of harm's way, and coming to a hard landing on the grass right in front of Zlair.

    Eric loses concentration for a split second before barking commands at the company. "This thing's got multiple targeting capabilities! Everyone, gather into a tight formation so Sev can better protect us! Once we get close enough to the button, I'll try to block the machine's line of fire, while one of you should try to go after the button!"

    As Haruka landed in front of Zlair, his heart began beating at an accelerated rate. He suddenly felt a surge of embarrassment rush through him and a sense of dizziness after. “What’s happening?” Zlair thought to himself. Zlair was frozen in his spot as Haruka was lying in front of him.

    As Eric commanded the team to stay in a group, Zlair regained control and lifted up the unconscious Haruka in a princess carry. Zlair could feel Haruka’s body being pressed against his; his heart suddenly began racing like before, but his time even faster.He knew that dropping her would stop the racing, but he didn't want to let go.

    As Haruka began regaining conscious, Zlair’s saw her eyes opening. Immediately Zlair turned his head forward. “A... are you a... alright?” Stuttered Zlair.

    Throwing herself down on the grass and landing in front Zlair wasn't the problem for Haruka nor was it the pain she felt hitting the floor rather hard. Such as her reactions had noticed the arrow towards her way, she was just a little too late. The blade just barely ripped her jeans and created a small wound towards her the lower part of her calf. A bit of pain expressed on her face as she laid there. Not really remembering Zlair was in front of her. Remembering that they were still in the range of the tower, she quickly placed her hand over her wound and began to heal it. She closed her eyes and signed out lightly. As Haruka was healing herself, she had failed to hear what Zlair had asked her if she was alright. She had wanted to quick about healing her wound and not be laying on the floor as if she was useless.

    Listening to what orders were given, she roughly finished up healing her wound, not completely and stood up see where everyone had had their stance and the range of Sev's shield. She adjusted her self within and started to create darkness over her hands. her appearance changed once again as her sunglasses were still on. Darkness disappeared not too long after she she had finished what she created. A rough outline of a fairly large bow was in her hands. Having proper posture oh holding the bow, she pulled back the string quickly and focused her attention on any arrow coming. As she watched one hit Eric's Shield again, She created an arrow, out of ice. It rested nicely on her hands as it didn't have a certain aim. Slowly it grew darker as darkness had slipped into the ice, just as Haruka wanted.

    As she had much expected, Another arrow had hit Sev's shield but a function of a second came another. As quick as Haruka's reactions were, she shoot her arrow with perfect aim as the two came into contact. As her ice arrow broke away at the force, the arrow shot from the tower had stopped and hit the ground.

    The twins were standing idly behind Sev. "...you should get the button," Seth motioned toward his sister. She nodded in agreement as he quickly cast a barrier of light to protect her as she began to dash towards the button. Their bodies were designed to harmonize with one another in combat and it seemed as though they shared the same thought process.

    The barrier appeared as armor, winding around Lumina's body in a decorative arabesque pattern. Her natural agility aided her in her task, each precise step bringing her closer to the button while Seth's continued barrier deflected incoming arrows. She finally reached the button, pressing it firmly. The arrows stopped and the task was seemingly completed.

    It was then that Lumina's body seemed to freeze, before slumping on the floor.

    "our harmonization has failed," noted Seth. "The stress of the failure has depleted my sister's power supply. I suppose a few simple adjustments must be made. I will commence repairs now." His face remained expressionless though his voice expressed some worry. "We will be out of commission while I repair her."

    It was then something began to appear from behind the group...

    Zlair could hear a quiet whistling behind them as Seth was fixing Lumina. He turned around to see a black dagger flying passed him skimming his cheek. As the dagger hit the ground, he sighed in relief that the dagger only skimmed him. Realizing this wasn’t the time to be happy about things like that, Zlair immediately looked into the distance for what had threw the dagger. His eyes opened in shock as he saw replicas of everyone walking towards them. With closer analyzes he realized all of them had a glowing mark on their foreheads. He turned his head slightly to the side keeping the replicas in his peripherals. As he looked at the group, he saw the button dissolving into sand.

    Before he realized it, the Eric replica suddenly shot a rocket towards him. Zlair braced himself as he quickly activated his scale ornament and compressed the surrounding air in front of him. The rocket exploded, but Zlair was unharmed except his hoodie was unzipped. Suddenly, another rocket flew towards him but this time it landed in front of him blasting him backwards. Zlair fell on Haruka, before his lips accidentally kissed hers.
