((Cool, so how do we want to start this?))
We could start when they recieve the guard assignment.
Sure thing, would you like to start? I'm no good at it :/
My starting posts are always incredibly long, I can't really do that at the moment because I'm on my mobile.
((Okay, so I'll start then?))
((Alright, my apologies if it's not quite right.))
Dylan had just woken up and thrown on her favourite long black dress when she heard a knock at the door. She padded downstairs, her bare feet pressing against the cold floor as she made her way to the front door, swinging it open. A man stood there and held out a hologram disk to her, she took the disk and invited him when she recognized his uniform and led him to a small sitting room where she took a seat, placing the disk on a short table and pressing a button. A hologram lit up the room and she saw that it was one of the political members from the city that she had met. He spoke, explaining that they needed her assistance in something rather important but didn't exactly specify what. When the hologram was over she turn to the man, her escourt to the city and gave him a small nod. "Alright, I'll go..." She said before grabbing the disk and going upstairs to her room. She grabbed a big bag and started throwing stuff into it, shirts, pants, a few dresses etc. She clicked a button and it compressed everything, shrinking it down into a backpack that was easier to carry. Before going bak downstairs she had made a quick stop to her parents room to say goodbye and explain things, they wished her luck and she swung her backpack over her shoulder as she hopped down the stairs. She tied up her tall boots and pulled her hair up into a messy bun before following the man out the door.
((Is that okay?))
Looks good! I'll reply when I'm not in spotty coverage areas.
Aaron received the call while he was playing pool with his buddies. His holo-phone buzzed in his wrist as the device lit up. Commander Hovel's face appeared on the display, and Aaron's heart sunk. Excusing himself from the game, he answered the call. A few minutes later, he hung up and waved goodbye to his friends. Heading straight home, he grabbed his duffel bag of equipment and drove away.
He had a job.
Dylan was lounging in her seat, fiddling with the little hologram disk and wondering what she was possibly needed for. She set the disk in her lap and tried to strike up a conversation with her escourt but decided to stay quiet when she realized that she was getting no where with it. Eventually she dozed off and was woken up when they reached one of the bigger buildings in the city.
Driving into the GuardCorps HQ, Aaron jogged into the locker room and stored his duffle bag. Then, he proceeded to his CO's office and waited for his partner in the assignment. It was safe to say he had no idea who he or she would be. However, ever the pessimist, Aaron assumed he would be pulling most of the weight.
Dylan hiked her backpack onto her shoulder as the man led her through the building. She looked around and vaugly remembered the place as she was led down a hallway and to a room where she was told to wait for further information on her assignment. The door clicked behind her and she brushed her bangs out of her eyes before looking around the room and finding that she wasn't alone.
Aaron looked up as the girl entered. His heart sunk as he looked her up and down. Was this is partner for the assignment? He had hoped for a soldier, not...whatever this girl was. He felt like getting this mission over and done with as quickly as possible, and she most likely set him back at least a month.
Dylan groaned on the inside... Great she had a partner, and he was all military which meant he would want things to go his way 24/7. She dropped her bakcpack onto the floor and took a seat in one of the chairs while she waited, not even bothering trying to converse with this dude. She straightened out her black dress and pushed her bangs out of her eyes again, wishing she had had the time to pull all her hair up this morning. Soon she could hear heavy footsteps coming down the hall way and she stood up as the door opened.
((Would you mind playing the official here?))
The official, Commander Sanders, looked at both Aaron and his partner. Nodding and sitting down, the broad man took a breath and shuffled his papers before looking up and beginning.
"As you all know, Elysium is incredibly valuable to weapon's creation here on Earth." Sanders said, then continuing,
"We've recruited a Martian scientist to help advance the field of Elysium Engineering recently. As you may infer, the Martians aren't too happy about that. We've already lost three men guarding the guy. Get him to Manila, Spain in three weeks without getting him or yourselves killed. He's in the lobby right now. Dismissed." The man said, and then waved his hand. All business, Aaron thought. Standing, he gave a quick salute to the man before exiting the office and grabbing his duffel bag.
Dylan grabbed her bag and sighed, with a small nod she followed her 'partner' out of the room. Bodyguard... in her mind she saw it as being recruited to babysit a Martian. She was hoping for something a little more exciting but then again she never really asked to do this... The only thing that had sparked her interest was the fact that he was telling them not to get killed like the others.
As she followed her partner to the lobby she was trying to assess more about his personality, hoping that he wasn't to up tight and wouldn't make this trip painfully dull and boring, but he was definatley giving off the well disiblined and obediant vibe... she could tell that they were not going to get along very easily.
Without looking at her, Aaron strode to the lobby. Aloud, he said,
"Listen. We're going to run things like soldiers. Don't screw around with the subject, don't be foolish. Get the job done and get out. Is this understood?"
Dylan rolled her eyes, And so it starts. She grabbed his arm and yanked him back, stopping him from proceeding any further. "Look, I don't follow orders from you, or anyone for that matter. I was asked to help here because I'm good at what I do, therefore I'm not changing the way I work just because you're telling me to." She told him steadily and flashed a small sarcastic smile before moving past him and continuing down the hall.
