*AHEM*

Kale

Ma’am! Strike Op. 3S5 Kale Bauer reporting in. Subject has been captu- err, I mean, acquired, and awaiting further instructions!

AIMCOMM

So close, Kale. You were *this* close to getting it correct but, what a shock, you had to… Oh, nevermind. You have the subject?

Kale

Yes Ms. Commandante. We made our escape pretty easily. Uhh… suspiciously easily, actually. It’s just a feeling, but I think the enemy might’ve wanted us to escape. We could have been tailed back by a Haunt or a Springheel and never noticed on radar.

AIMCOMM

Mm. Well I’m not here to listen to your feelings, son. I don’t give a damn if they COULD have followed you, because they DIDN’T. You don’t get how the world works, do you Mr. Bauer?

Kale

The hell!? But how can you… *sigh*

Kale

No, Ma’am. My apologies, Ma’am...

AIMCOMM

Good, good. Now, for our guest! It must have been a long and horribly boring ride over, hmm? How are you feeling, Sol?

Sol

I’m feeling alright! And let me just say, it’s an HONOR to meet you! I mean, the famous Commandante of AIM! Who DOESN’T want to get to… Wait a minute, how… How do you know who I am?
