Maikeru was still holding his shirt in Koi's wound. He had lost a lot of blood and wasn't showing any signs of stopping.
Shit, this "transfer" better start soon or he might not make it.
He had been hearing Andre talk about Tomoe and Naomi in a sickening way.
Fuck that arrogant asshole.
Trying to ignore Andre, Maikeru didn't notice Naomi enter the back room. It wasn't until someone yelled "Watch out" that he turned his head and tried to see what was going on in there.

If the pressure on her wasn't great enough Tomoe noticed that some didn't get along with the others. She heard the yells and commotion and lost her composure when she saw the others fighting.
"Thanks again, Dino," she said sarcastically. When she looked down at Koi Tomoe wondered if he'd consider himself lucky if he died before he could take charge of the people they were stuck with.
She wanted to say something a leader would say to the people fighting. Something inspiring that would foster peace and cooperation so that they could survive the night and become friends afterward.
As much as she wanted to say something to that effect, she didn't know how.
"You know...about a minute ago I cared about you people. Now...I don't. If you're going to throw your lives away by fighting before the danger starts then I'm not wasting any time or energy on you. If you're just going to argue with someone in this room then do me a favor and walk home after we leave here. Just walk home and let the rest of us work. It's just that simple."
On her way out Tomoe picked up a rifle lying on the floor and sighed as she exited the room with the bikes and waited for the transfer.

Once Naomi entered the room, Dino knew exactly what was coming. He sprang to his feet and sprinted after her. He grabbed her around the waist, pulling her away, while simultaneously attempting to kick the rifle out of Andre's hands.

Joey, I want the transfers to start tonight, so hurry and get that post up.

The gun the slowly turning around bastard wanted to aim at her was far from being important. But the hands that she could feel at her waist were actually, because they drew her back. Naomi turned her head and saw the face of Dino. He kicked at the gun, but she took less notice of it. More important was that he was hindering her.
"Get your hands off me!", she yelled right into his face. With all of her strength and rage, she tried to free herself from his grip and launch herself at Andre again, so that she could hit him anywhere.

Dino wraps an arm around Naomi's torso and holds her with all his strength.
"CALM THE FUCK DOWN, WOMAN!" He glares at Andre, "You might want to back off." He looks towards the doorway. "Tomoe, I could use some help!"

Sean thought it was funny but at the same time a little insulting that the girl didn't introduce herself. But then it all made sense; she was about to start a fight with one of the others. Sean was about to intervene but the large drunk guy bet him to the punch. He walks back into the bike room when he realizes what started it. "Listen Andre, I don't know what happened but I don't care; this is not the time for pettiness. From what everyone is talking about this could be our last night on earth. He then walks closer to Andre, "There is no need for your ego we need everybody's help. We are supposed to be fighting aliens not each other." Sean walks out and leans against the nearest wall and waits for the transfer. He can't help once again slightly looking at and thinking about Tomoe.

Tomoe put her hand on Naomi's chin and looked her in the eyes. She assumed that Naomi knew that touching and eye contact were things a person as shy as herself rarely did.
"You promised you would help me. This isn't helping." She wished she could silently communicate how burdened she felt having to lead. "Whatever you want, Naomi. Lead...cooperate and I'll do whatever you want if we survive. We'll go wherever, I'll kill whoever, I just want to survive this night. Okay?"
Tomoe broke her gaze at Naomi and looked at Dino. "Let her go, she'll be fine."
Of all the people she thought might fly into a berzerker rage Naomi was the last on the list with herself named first.
"What's that old saying?" she asked loudly. "Hang together or we'll hang seperately? Strength in numbers, people. Just like horror movies."
No stuttering. No stammering. Every word came out as she planned and it was an odd sensation.

Dino smiled at the sudden strength in her voice. "That's mah girl, told you ya had it in you." He lets Naomi down slowly, so he was in between her and Andre. He now looked at the man and the smile disappeared. "Don't you ever fucking point that at another human or I'll personally bash your head in, you little prick."

Soon, all but the 7 veterans are gone from the room. A minute passes before a new screen on the ball appears.

The vets are then transfered one by one, Koi unfortunately being the last, until all are outside on a quiet, dark suburban residential street. All injuries have been healed, and all suit energy has been recharged. Koi's, Maikeru's, and Sean's injuries have all been healed.
Note: DO NOT POST ANY MORE IN THIS THREAD. I will make another thread for part 1 of this mission in a little bit, as soon as I get the revised map from Sid. Thank you for all of your patience, the real action is about to begin.
