M.O.M.O Ops Episode 1Who's That?The Mysterious Menace? A New Operative!Things were different now... Himeko shuffled the files on her desk, trying to concentrate through her nervousness. It was an ordinary day and people walked down the hall just beyond the door, going about on their ordinary business. Except it was different. Everything was different. The team itself, once full of those who knew and cared for one another, would be completely changed. New faces, new... talents. And new missions. The brass hadn’t wasted time, Himeko mused, opening the hard copy of the day’s objective. No time to train together, no time to get to know one another. But this was to be a routine mission: recruit a new member, one Flore, Mitsuko. Left unsupervised, the girl was a menace. But M.O.M.O. would be able to train her. And given her rumored specialty, it was no wonder she’d fallen to Himeko’s team to secure. It would be simple. Surely even the greenest members of the team could handle this. To be sure, the reason she was most nervous was that the damn staff doctor was coming along to monitor the... the fresh meat and make sure no one had any objectionable reactions to anything that might occur. She’d known them, once, and it had been simple... This new team... she didn’t like it. She was stuck with the Maelstrom Knight, first off, a young man who’d given her nothing but annoyance. She had attempted to befriend him, but he was distant and distrustful and she wasn’t sure he let anyone in past his shielded exterior. Then there was the doctor. Saul was... well, quite frankly, any doctor made her nervous. She didn’t really know him that well at all. There was a transfer from another team, a young man named Iseya. His squad... well, they hadn’t been as lucky as the former members of Himeko’s squad. But at least he was trained, at least the Knight and Saul knew their jobs. But then... But then... then there was the final member of the team. The real threat to cohesion. Min. Himeko had argued against the assignment of the... creature, if one could call it that... to her squad. She’d been informed that if anyone could handle the special tact that would be needed to deal with a defective---er, defecting-- robot, it would be her. She wasn’t sure about subjecting a newly assembled team to something that had until very recently been a cold blooded killing machine, though. This was going to be difficult. Oh well, they’d adapt. They had better. Putting most of her files away, Himeko headed from office to staffroom. The others should be gathered by the time she got there... at least if they knew what was good for them. Things were definitely different now.
