OOC: Sorry for the late reply. Was extremely depressed for the past two weeks.

I think the Colonel and co already have a fair idea of what the girls can do from their training up Triela. So we can skip that part and proceed to wherever you feel is best for storytelling purposes.

With the formalities over, the assembled GIS operators crisply broke ranks and hurried off, ushering their guests along as they did so. It was time to get started.

Some time later...

The training area of the GIS camp was strangely quiet in the aftermath of the girl's demonstration of their capabilities. On a pair of supply tables, the guns whose noise had filled the air sat in neat arrangements, ready to be taken down and cleaned once their mistresses were finished for the day.

Rico, Henrietta, and Angelica had managed to make a strong first impression on their GIS hosts. Angelica's accuracy and Rico's handling of her MG-42/59 in particular had been quite impressive. Overall, and in combination with their previous experiences with Triela, this demonstration gave the GIS operators very high expectations for their guests. Perhaps a little too high.

"Well, that gives us an idea of what to expect from them," Major Salles informed the handlers as observed the girls and his subordinates from the edge of the training area. "It should be enough to draft a good training plan. If none of you have any objections, I'll have Sergeant Ricci and his squad work with your girls on some unarmed combat training while we get down to business on that."

That sounds good, Giuseppe thought. He glanced at Henrietta, the girl currently in a tee shirt and short pants.

"Put your gun away, Henrietta. It's time for your unarmed combat training."

"Yes, Giuseppe."

"Angelica. It's time for unarmed combat training. Please put your gun away." said Marco.

"Understood Marco." said Angelica

For Marco's part, he had been hoping to have Angelica's unarmed combat skills improve ever since he first heard about the Pandanian agent (Pinochio) that had bested Triela in combat. "I don't want Angelica to be in a situation like that where she's at the mercy of any Pandanian so she needs this...".

Meanwhile, Angelica had been anxious to engage in unarmed combat training. While she prefered using guns in combat, Angelica realized that certain situations required unarmed combat. "I want to be able to feel at least a bit comfortable in every situation because I don't want a repeat of what happened in Milan when I didn't have my gun." Shuddering slightly at that bad memory while putting her gun away, Angelica then stood at attention for further orders while wondering how she'll fare in unarmed combat against Henrietta or Rico.

(OOC: I can imagine Angelica wanting to improve her unarmed combat skills so she won't feel uncomfortable like in volume 3 of the manga when she didn't have her gun on her for a time. As for Marco, it's likely that after hearing about the Pinochio incident involving Triela, he'd likely want to ensure that Angelica would be able to handle herself better in unarmed combat.)

Unarmed now, Henrietta waited for instruction on what to do next. Her brown eyes scanned the instructor tasked to handle her.

Major Salles nodded to the handler.

"If you'll follow me."

The GIS' second in command walked off towards the administrative part of the base, with the SWA handlers close behind. That left the Angelica, Henrietta, and Rico with Sergeant Ricci and his men. The Sergeant pointed to Henrietta.

"We'll start with you. Your name is Henrietta, right? You'll be going up against Antonio."

A lean looking GIS operator stepped forward from among the members of Sergeant Ricci's squad.

"We're going to have you attack first this round. Begin whenever you're ready."

OOC: Guys, I should probably note her that I have a plan for this scene. Basically, I wanted to generate some conflict between the GIS and SWA personnel, and I figured a good way to do that would be to have them treat Henrietta and Angelica the way they did the only other cyborg the GIS has ever trained -namely Triela. Jean probably wouldn't care, but I'm not sure Marco or Giuseppe would appreciate their charges being treated that roughly.

(OOC: Roger. So, is it up to us to portray the fights, or do I, say, narrate what Etta does, then you reply for Antonio, then I reply, etc?)

Henrietta took her place before the man named Antonio. She glanced at Giuseppe before focusing on her opponent.

I'm going to attack, then.


He's not an enemy. He's not threatening Giuseppe.

But I have to do well for Giuseppe.


Her eyes narrowed. She sprinted forward, burning through the distance between her and Antonio like a wildfire, her right fist snapping out to plant itself into her opponet's gut, a non-lethal but incapacitating move.

Antonio reacted quickly to Henrietta's charge, moving to the side of the onrushing cyborg and lashing out with a vicious elbow strike meant to catch her from behind. As he did so, he analysed the situation with the mind of an experienced fighter.

I'm reacting too quickly. She's fast, but I still have leeway. Wait until she's about to strike before countering.

The elbow would have seriously hurt people. Henrietta didn't even notice it rebound off her back. She twisted around like a snake to go for a backfist to Antonio's lower torso using her left hand.

Antonio barely managed to dodge Henrietta's second attack, but was quick to reply with a punch and a sweeping kick towards her legs.

She's small and fast. Keep her at a distance. You won't be able to fend her off if she gets too close.

Carefully observing Henrietta and Antonio fight, Angelica nervously wondered how she'd do in her fight.

"I gotta make sure that I do well in this fight while not seriously injuring my sparring partner." Angelica thought to herself "I should probably avoid a frontal attack and try to go for his legs.".

Meanwhile, Marco watched the fight and wondered not just how well Angelica would do in her fight but how harsh the GIS trainers would be to her. "They'd better not seriously injure her or they'll be hell to pay....." Marco thought to himself.

(OOC: I can't wait for my turn to have Angie fight. As for her planned methods of attack, Angelica's just trying to figure out the best way to disable her opponent without seriously injuring him. I apologize if Marco saying the word hell upset anyone but having him say "heck" or "they'll have to answer to me" didn't seem as effective in showing his feelings."

The punch to her cheek didn't even faze Henrietta. Rico had taken a bullet to her forehead and gone on fighting despite the resulting minor concussion.

But Giuseppe startled at the blow to his ward's face. He actually took a step forward out of reflex, his protective instincts provoked.

Etta sensed her handler's brief moment of fear. She glanced at him-

Giuseppe...

-and then lost her footing courtesy Antonio's leg sweep.

"Henrietta!"

The girl was on her back and suddenly confused. W-what? Giuseppe?

Antonio stepped back from the fallen Henrietta, but his body language indicated that he was still ready for combat. He was apparently just waiting for her to retake her feet.

Shaken by her handler's worry, Henrietta slowly got back on her feet to face Antonio.

Meanwhile, Giuseppe was tighter than a coiled spring. Henrietta...

This time, Antonio attacked first -and fast. He might not be about to strike her after knocking her down, but he definitely wasn't going to let her let her guard down either.

Henrietta fell back on the defensive. She couldn't focus, not with Giuseppe looking like he was about to jump into the melee himself. All she could do was dodge and parry, her legs pumping to keep her moving, arms blurs.

Despite the pressure Henrietta's speed put him under, Antonio still had the presence of mind to be able to analyse Henrietta's moves and watch for openings. When one presented itself, he took it, sending a short but powerful strike towards the cyborg's stomach region.

Henrietta staggered back. As usual, the blow didn't really hurt, but the psychological impact more than made up for it.

Giuseppe had enough. "Sir, please stop this match."

Sergeant Ricci raised his hand.

"Hold," he ordered Antonio before turning his attention to Jose.

"Is there a problem?" he asked calmly. It was apparent that he didn't see much cause for concern in spite of his deference to his guest's request.

"Just one moment, Sergeant. Excuse me." Giuseppe made his way to Henrietta with an encouraging smile.

"Giuseppe?"

"It's all right. Just do your best."

"... y-yes... I will..."

Still unnerved, but now taking heart from Giuseppe's encouragement, Henrietta took up a fighting pose again. I just have to do my best...

"I know," Giuseppe muttered. "But... that can wait for later..."

Having gathered herself anew through Giuseppe's words, Henrietta decided to go defensive this time, waiting for Antonio to make a move.

Antonio was fast for his size, and moved aggressively. At first he seemed to be charging Henrietta head on, but at the last second he sidestepped to the right and struck from there, aiming a powerful punch at her head as he rotated his body to keep it oriented towards his target.

Henrietta had expected an attack from the front. Still, she was fast enough to react in time, parrying Antonio's punch aside. Since her arms were just too short to compare, she instead kicked at the nearer of Antonio's legs.

Even before Henrietta had parried his first blow, Antonio had launched a second, this one aimed at her gut. At approximately the same time, Henrietta's kick connected with his leg, which made him wince and gasp in pain, but which barely caused him to falter at all in the course of his attack. He was too experienced a fighter to loose his game easily.

Antonio's fist rebounded off Henrietta's chest. That and her leg still extended into the kick unbalanced her sharply. The girl staggered back, unhurt but vulnerable.

Again Giuseppe was poised to react protectively, just holding himself in the nick of time. He thought of Triela going through this same ordeal, and of Hilshire who put her through it.

How could he have stomached it? How could he have allowed this to happen to Triela?

Why am I allowing this?

IC:

Seeing a vulnerability in his opponent's defenses, Antonio pressed his attack, striking out with a powerful kick as Henrietta fought to reclaim her balance. He had no intention of giving her an opening in which to recover.

Antonio once again stepped back while his opponent was down, but attacked again almost immediately once she was back on her feet, without giving her much time to recover.
