"The procedures I went through? Implant operations, physical and mental training, indoctrination, more training, numerous punishments, torture simulation, capture simulation, sparring sessions against other soldiers, more indoctrination, brain performance testing, and some other that I cannot recall right now. The project leaders were quite insistent on not letting information regarding the project to get out, even at our expense. No matter how harsh the situation we would find ourselves in, we were expected to keep our mouth shut and failure to do so means elimination from the project.
I wonder how people's face would look like moments before they melt from a direct beam shot?"
With a grimace, Reveka touched the side of her face. While the beam shot hadn't exactly melted off the side of her face it had left Reveka permanently scarred, and while her hair managed to cover the most of the damage anyone who gave her more than a cursory glance would be able to see hints of the scars her military service had left her with.
"I sincerely hope you've never had to see such a sight because I can assure you it is quite gruesome..." Reveka said followed by a noise that sounded halfway between a groan and a sigh. However, before their conversation could continue any further Selardi was tackled by a high-speed unidentified furry object. While normally Reveka's motherly instincts would've kicked she knew from experience that this object was no danger to Selardi.
"Haro~ don't startle our guest like that you big goof," Reveka chuckled approaching Selardi and the enormous Mastiff.
"So this is a dog. It is dirtier and a lot more smelly than I once thought. Does this ship breed them as a food source?"
"Hahaha~ Of course not, isn't she silly Haro?" Reveka knew that Sela's question was more than likely serious, however, she thought it best to play it off as a joke, "This is Arthur's dog, he's more like a family pet." Reveka knelt down so that she was at eye-level with the dog. "Haro, this is Selardi, she's going to be living with us on the ship so make sure you're nice to her, ok?" Reveka took the big slobbering kiss she received from the massive dog as an affirmative. "Good boy~ Alright Sela once you're done picking peaches let me know and we'll head back to the med bay and I can mash them up for you."
"Dammit dude, how do you get that smashed that fast?" Roche felt extremely light headed as Reyd helped him onto his feet. "C'mon, lets get you back to your room before Mommy has to come in here and scrape your drunk ass off the floor." Reyd began leading Roche out the door, however, several times during even the short trip out the door Roche began to lose his balance leaning heavily into Reyd's shoulder for support. "Sorry about leaving you hangin'. Help STAN take care of the mess, would ya?"
"Soooooooorrrrrryyyyyyy..." Roche said sleepily as both he and Reyd left the bar.
Most of the trip back to Roche's room passed uneventfully Roche only falling over a couple times during the trip, however, a little more than halfway through the trip in true White Girl Wasted fashion Roche began to cry uncontrollably.
"Reeeeeyyyyyyyyydddddd!!!!!" Roche cried directly into the young man's ears. "Do- do you think-" Roche cut himself off as he began ugly cry once again. "Doyouthink- WAAAAAHHHH! Do you think markers will ever know what a bagel tastes like?" Roche's looked at Reyd expectantly however mercifully the pair arrived at Roche's room, and as Roche crawled into his bed his demeanor changed again. "You know- You know I love you guys." Roche mutter sleepily. "You- You're like my best frieeee..." Roche trailed off passing out on his bed allowing Reyd to leave the room.
"Roche, head forward and watch our path out of here. Everyone else, we're watching our sides and back. The Arrowhead is basically a sitting duck while it's stuck towing the Hagane, so we need to take extra care to make sure we are not taken by surprise. I have my doubts that the pirates we ran into earlier are the only ones out here."
"Ooooof course~" Roche replied in a voice that was overly chipper. "Oh my god, I'm dying..." Roche muttered in absolute agony. He'd been woken up about an hour ago for the mission, however, he still hadn't quite slept over his hangover.
Meanwhile aboard the Hagane Reveka had arrived with the rest of the salvage team.
"Ugh..." Reveka groaned over the coms, "how do you kids wear these things... they're so uncomfortable..." Reveka tugged at the suit trying in vain to adjust to her body. "So tight..." Reveka muttered. "Alright," Reveka said, now addressing the team,"I want to examine the medical bay Reyd found first thing, after that, you're free to do as you please. Also, when we split up we're to move in pairs I don't want anybody alone, there shouldn't be anybody here but us but it never hurts to be cautious. I'm sending you all the coordinates where Reyd found the medical bay, so let's head out!"
