[FF] Yet Another Handler Swap

Post by sasahara17 on Tue 9 Jun 2009 - 0:59

Just a few snippets I put together in my Hiatus. Not Proofread, and nowhere near my usual standards as I haven't put much thought into it. Might be good for a few kicks though.

Sibling Rivalry

-=- -=- -=- -=- -=- -=-

Case 1;
Florence

A beautiful melody wafted through the alleys of Rome, the graceful sound of a
violin being played by a master musician echoing through the stone and plaster
of the old city. With the dim light of the crescent moon lingering overhead,
the young girl in an olive winter coat, played her instrument as if in a
trance, her focus making the joyful symphony all the more entrancing.

With some final notes, the girl ended the song with a spectacular finish. The sole
member of her audience broke out into a loud applause.

“That was magnificent, Florence!” The young bellboy said. “As good as always! It’s a
crying shame the manager doesn’t let you perform here more often.”

The blond girl flushed with pride at his kind words. “Thank you Emilio. I don’t get
to play for an audience often, so this was a real treat for me as well.”

Her name was Florence Croche, the young ‘sister’ of Giuseppe Croche, curtsied politely
at her close friend, Emilio. They had been friends for almost six months now,
since the day that Florence performed her violin playing in the hotel café at
her brother’s request. The passing bellboy had been entranced by her
performance, and they’d hit off when he’d approached her on her way out. They
had been friends since.

It was too bad on that same day that some poor politician was murdered in his own
hotel room, but you can’t win ‘em all right?

“Um, Florence?” Emilio said hesitantly.

“Yes Emilio?” The blonde girl said as she packed away her musical instrument,
careful not to accidentally bring notice the other ‘violin case’ she had
brought with her.

“I’ve been… learning how to play a harmonica… it was the only thing I could afford.”
The bellboy quickly. Florence let out a small gasp at this, making the poor boy
feel even more awkward. “It’s not as classy as a violin, and I’m still
learning, but…”

Two feminine hands reached out to clasp his, and Emilio found himself face to face
with the face of an overjoyed Florence. “I’m so happy for you Emilio! I can’t
wait to hear you play for me!” Florence said excitedly.

“I’m not very good at it though.” He admitted truthfully.

“Neither was I when I started. All you need is someone to help you get there Emilio.”

“Florence…”

“You know what? I’ll find a duet we can play together!” Florence declared. “We’ll
play together to our hearts content… And if we get good enough, one day maybe I
can ask if Giuseppe will let perform together on stage in the café!”

Emilio couldn’t help but be overtaken by Florence’s enthusiasm, the positive feelings
washing away his own fears like a warm tide. Emilio returned her warm smile.

“Alright, I’ll play for you.”

“Thank you Emilio. You don’t know how much this means to me.” Florence said embracing
the boy and turning him beet red with embarrassment. She would have to leave
her friend now to ‘collect’ her brothers, Giuseppe and Jean, from the hotel’s
pub, but she would now go with a delighted heart, filled with anticipation.

“So… same time next week?”

“It’s a date!” Florence smiled warmly, prompting Emilio to blush madly.

-=- -=- -=- -=- -=- -=-

Case 2; Henrietta

The harsh echo of the FN P90 echoed through the near deserted firing range, the
sounds of lethal projectiles mercilessly ripping apart the target dummies. Even
at this late our, this person trained alone with her instrument, relentlessly
with all the cold calculation and relentlessness she was known for. The maroon
colored coat she wore a stark contrast to her white surroundings.

A new presence entered the room, and the girl paused in her machine like actions to
address him. “Good evening, Director. Working late, again?”

The old man, the head of the government’s most lethal group of assassins, walked up to
her and laid a hand on her shoulder. “I’m going to have to ask you to stop,
Henrietta.”

Henrietta Croche raised a disbelieving eyebrow at the old man. “I am in the middle of
firearms training.”

“Which Jean did not order you to do.” Lorenzo said, a slight amount of discomfort and
concern accidentally leaking into his voice. “It is also well past the imposed
curfew. Without your handler’s express authorization and proper supervision…”

“Jean Croche has allowed be to conduct my own training. My prior record clearly shows
I am mature enough to do so. I believe he has expressed as such in public.”
Henrietta pointed out clinically. “This room is soundproofed, and I will not be
a bother if that’s what you are worried about.”

Lorenzo shook his head. “That is not it… Henrietta, it is all well and good you are so…
dedicated to our cause. But as it is, you are exhausting yourself. You push
yourself far too hard, even for my standards.”

“I believe it is the cyborg’s handler who is supposed to express that concern.”
Henrietta said, pushing in a new magazine into her FN P90.

“I do not want to set the precedent of allowing an extra-ordinary junior operative to
so exhaust herself in her training that she would be unable to function on the
field.” Lorenzo explained.

“Those Camorra are not going to kill themselves.” The girl grimaced, a multitude of
emotions playing under the surface. For a brief moment, it chilled Lorenzo to
the bone to see Henrietta’s very own handler Jean reflected in those vengeful
eyes.

Even now, the deaths of her family, the mutilation and subsequent defilement of
herself and her younger twin sister at the hands of the Camorra’s thugs were
playing over in her mind. Her childhood and innocence had died long before she
ever became a cyborg.

Now, Henrietta Croche was a cyborg assassin, driven by a vendetta against the mafia
so strong no drug could ever overcome the memories that fueled it. She was a
terrible reflection of her partner, a man driven to revenge against the
Northern Separatists who had slain his wife and his family.

Jean and Henrietta couldn’t have picked more fitting partners.

“And you won’t be doing any killing if you don’t get some rest. There is a big mission
tomorrow, and I need you to be in fighting form.” Lorenzo snapped
authoritatively. “As the head of the Social Welfare Agency and your ultimate
superior, I order you to get some rest, effective immediately.”

“...Yes sir.” The young girl grudgingly conceded.

As Lorenzo watched the short brunette exit the firing range, he felt a chill go up
his spine. “To think there was someone as young as you driven by vengeance,
Henrietta…”

-=- -=- -=- -=- -=- -=-

And just for fun... Slapstick!

-=- -=- -=- -=- -=- -=-

Case 3; Elsa and Angelica

“Yes my dear Elsa! Now that you have been able to swim thirty laps without coming up
for air, it is clear that you have finally learned how to use your prosthetic
in a manner befitting of a youthful butterfly such as yourself! Your fires of
youth burn brightly, my student!” Lauro se Sica declared jumping up on the
table and striking a victory pose that was most embarrassing to the other
people in the SWA canteen.

Beside him, his faithful protégé and fellow youth manic Elsa de Sica joined him in his
ridiculous celebration by jumping on the table beside him and striking another
pose, her beautiful green coat and sparkling green eyes somehow fluttering in the non-existent wind. “Yes Lauro! Now I shall do one hundred laps around the compound on my hands! And if
I can’t do that, I shall do one thousand push-ups in its stead!”

The sounds of foreheads hitting table could be heard around the canteen. Beatrice
in particular covered her ears; cursing everything under the sun that god had
seen fit to enhance her hearing. It was a true gift... until she had met Elsa and Lauro
de Sica.

“I was right, the fires of youth do burn brightly in you my disciple!” Lauro praised
proudly. “I shall join you in your endeavors, dear student! Together we shall
sow the seeds of hard work and perseverance!”

“Yes Lauro! So we SHALL!”

Then they embraced.

If one squinted hard enough, you could actually see a romantic sunset blossom behind
them.

“Elsa!”
“Lauro!”

“Elsa!”
“Lauro!”

“ELSA!”
“LAU-”

BANG!

A loud, most un-youthful gunshot shattered the sunset behind the pair. One person
finally had enough. Angelica ‘Obsidian Butterfly’ Toni, slammed her closed fist
down on her table in fury, her Steyr assault rifle pointed at the disgusting
scene in her other hand in a one handed grip.

“I swear to god as my fucking witness; if you two don’t shut the hell up right now, I
will personally give you to an ass-kicking that would make the Spartans look
like Viccy’s ponies, and then nail your bloodied corpses to the wall as a
warning to all the second generations not to be jackasses while
Angelica-fucking-Toni is trying to have her goddamned pasta!”

Naturally everyone, including the people who were certainly not the ‘de Sica duo’,
scooted away from Angelica for fear of their lives. The timid Viccy even dove
under a table, actually hugging one of her beloved my little pony dolls closer
to her body protectively.

In fact, Elsa and Lauro had fled the canteen outright for fear of their lives, even leaving
behind their breakfast.

It would seem that the fires of youth paled in comparison to the righteous fury that was
the SWA’s very own demon countess from hell.

“Yeah, run you turds! Nobody, and I mean nobody,
messes with the Obsidian Butterfly…!” Angelica laughed evilly.

“Angelica…” Patricia Toni, the only one undaunted her partner’s outburst, frowned disapprovingly as she sat down beside her cyborg ward. “Do I need to put you back in those
Anger Management classes again?”

Angie grinned. “Feh, like hell I’m going back there. They deserved it. They’re a pair
of wusses.” Angelica snorted dismissively as she jammed her fork into the
spaghetti. “Even your hubby has more backbone than them... I swear, someone's going to murder those two one of these days."

-=-=-=-

A/N - If full length story is written, Henrietta will shoot Emilio while on a mission in Cold Blood. Florence will be understandably upset with her sister.

...except Emilio was planned to buy the farm when Henrietta blows him away. I wonder how pissed would Florence be then?

Thankfully I never got that far eh?

Very convincing twist up on Henrietta & "Florence's" personalities...you place them in different circumstances but maintain their core persona. I can easily see Henrietta's obsessiveness about her handler turning into obsessiveness about the job...in fact Yu might be turning her in that direction in canon.

The highlight for me was vicious Angelica swearing like a drunken sailor...and then the unexpected twist you added at the end.

This alternate reality stuff is always good for a laugh.
