“We aren’t doing this for some sort of tactical bonding experience. If I had a say in the matter it certainly would be ‘no’ but unfortunately the vote was unanimous and as it stands, this is a training program.” Tseng’s words were distasteful. It was obvious by all present he was conflicted about the decision made. The present audience being Reno, Rude, and Cissnei. The Turks.
This rendezvous was not even pertaining to a mission, but an assigned training program mandatory trial issued by President Shin-Ra himself. Displeased, but keeping his usual professional position Tseng went on with his explanation “Each of you will be assigned a SOLDIER partner and a task to be completed by a so-far unspecified date and time. I’m not excluded from the program myself, I want each of you to be completely dilig—”
A click at the break room door interrupted the leader of the Turks’ speech. He became immediately flustered, and as such a secretary from the main lobby hurried in and handed a single yellow envelope to each of the Turks. Inside would be the details of said training program. As she exited the room, Tseng finished up “… Follow the instructions and do what you’re told. I wasn’t given a precise reason, but President Shin-Ra wants this to be taken very seriously.”
There were obvious reasons why Tseng was infuriated upon receiving the news about this new assignment. SOLDIERs and Turks being tossed into a mission with more than likely no actual purpose just for the sake of training to him was a waste of time.
Cissnei, she had remained at full attention throughout the meeting. Truth was she had very little interest in tag-teaming with a SOLDIER. The corporation had trained her from a very young age in the ways of the Turks, what possible reason could they have for doubling up their employees for something, for lack or proper phrasing, trivial?
The respect she had for SOLDIER was very real, their strength and stamina were unmatched. There was a deep admiration she had for the work they did, as strong as the loyalty she had for her own division. Yet at the leave of Tseng, Reno, and Rude the Turkette remained by herself in the break room, moments of contemplation and uncertainty passed by. Gloved hands kept the envelope, curiosity overcoming her facial expression. Finally the woman’s anticipation lead to the unsealing of the envelope the single paper removed from its packaging. To her surprise there wasn’t much within.
A name, a location, a date, and time.
No there had to be some sort of mistake. The name included here was that of a First Class— A General— In the end result he was without a doubt the most widely known SOLDIER, Sephiroth. At this moment, her focus had been intent on the paper, the sound of a couple infantrymen caused a start out of Cissnei. Without a word to the two men, she did a quick and neat cram of the paper back inside its container and slid out of the room.
Granted the time and date of the assignment, she would need to make her way to the main entrance immediately. According to the very little information she had been given, she could only assume that the General would have more.
The nature of this all. She mused to herself. It must be a test of teamwork. I can’t begin to imagine what kind of mission they would actually use to optimize a tag-team of myself with… The heroic First. Us Turks, we aren’t ones to dwindle around in the public eye. A training program to combine the skills, strengths, and weaknesses of SOLDIERs and Turks. I still can’t—
A chaotic montage of thoughts that left the Turkette vacantly making her way down the elevator and to the main floor had finally been driven off by the sight of the revolving doors. This was the area specified within the envelope she still held, and only two minutes before the time assigned. Cissnei had by this point had to assume whatever mission the training program ensued, was information handed out to her partner for the evening. Pausing at the right side of the revolving doors, she turned to watch the lobby. Her arms crossed in a thoughtful manner, not remotely was she sure what to expect from this evening.
