    "Bye, Mommy!", said Yumiko in her perfect, unaccented English, smiling brightly as she skipped down the sidewalk toward the school shuttle. "Soreja, Yumi", replied Rin. She once again shook her head at the futility of getting the eight year old girl to …

  • Gathering Info

    "DON'T GIVE ME THAT DREKKING CRAP, YOSHIKI!", screamed Rin, slamming her palms on the salary-man's desk. Heads turned in the outer office, as the sound insulation of a middle-manager's walls proved insufficient in the face of the young woman's rage. "I …

  • Modification

    Rin gasped as she woke from the nightmare, Akio's bloody face seeming to still float in front of her eyes. Confused and agitated, she looked around in terror at the unfamiliar surroundings. Spotting a familiar face did little to help with the …

  • Relaxing at Home

    Hirito took another swig of beer as he settled into the couch. The trid was playing nothing but trash, but that was fine with Hirito since his attention was going to be partially diverted anyway. He settled on a re-run of _Extreme Survivor: Hubble_ …

  • New Friends

    Highball sat in the corner, nursing his beer and watching the pub crowd. The place was pretty quiet, not surprising for a Sunday night. Should be OK for a meeting. The scanners were picking up only a couple of active cameras in the back, the ork behind …

  • Focus

    "Focus...The only thing that matters is the target." "Now gently squeeze the trigger." The report of the rifle was startling in the silence of the range, but Rin had long since stopped jumping at the sudden noise.  Hours of training had improved her …

  • Wishes

    "Make a wish and blow out the candles, Yumi!", called Nozomi, as the rest of Yumiko's friends watched in anticipation. The adults stood back and smiled at the excitement, but they didn't understand how much Yumiko had been looking forward to this moment. …

  • Distractions

    Carver looked up from the maglock case and nodded, packing away the electronics kit. Rin triggered her sub-vocal mic to alert the team. "We're in. Any company?" Highball's Aussie twang cut through the soft static. "Two guards on routine patrol on …

  • Workout

    Rin smiled non-commitally as the blonde took up residence on the treadmill next to her. She had seen the girl several times during the rehab sessions while recovering from her surgery. The older woman had almost gotten used to the girl's unusual …

  • Ghosts from the Past

    Rin had been staring at the image capture for hours, nursing her saké, and contemplating her meeting with Akio's cousin. She'd been unprepared for how much Hirito looked like her dead husband. When she'd looked up to see the man standing at her table, …

  • Team Building

    As Hirito walked out of the nearby Stuffer Shack(tm), Rin casually dropped the targeting reticule to the middle of his back. There was a small surge of satisfaction as a mental command triggered the assault rifle to cough out a burst of fire. The three …

  • Final Favour

    Yoshiki glanced around nervously as the black van slid up to the loading dock. His mouth was dry and he was beginning to wish that he had gone to the bathroom before coming to the meeting. Hopefully, this would be over quickly. The panel door slid …

  • Temples

    Carver really wished that he had gone to the bathroom before they set out down the tunnels. On top of that, he couldn't stop his hands from shaking. It was hard to act tough when you looked like a hyperactive junkie on speed. It hadn't helped when one …

  • Epilogue07

    Eri absentmindedly flipped through the photo album as Rin stared out the window. The two women had been sitting quietly in the hospital room for nearly an hour since the young widow had awakened. Her friend hadn't known how she got to the hospital, and …
