Jack pounds fists pack with Andre "Hey its no problem, I dont want to see anyone get hurt if they dont have to. We're splitting up? Keep an eye out for her" Jack says as he points his thumb at Naomi "I dont know what you said or did before, but you definatly made an enemy with her, just watch your back"
Jack Rides up close to Dino. So Whats going on? We splitting up? I'd go talk to that leader girl but I cant understand a word she's saying.
Maikeru smiled weakly. What she said made him realize he was not in this alone. As much tension and drama was going on between the people in the room, this was going to be a team effort.

He turned his attention to the radar-like thing he grabbed. The screen resembled Google maps in an odd sort of way, and displayed various dots, one large blue group and a various amount of scattered red dots.
I guess we're the blue one...
He heard Andre say "So who's team am I on anyway?"
Snapping him out of his trance, he turned around to see the rest of the people in the room were with him. The kid who was shot in the gut was fine, although it didn't look like he had a suit. There were also two odd looking bikes manned by Jack and Andre.
"Yea, how are we gunna split up? he asked the veterans.
Takezo was getting fustrated. He didn't get any answers from Tomoe (who had ignored him) and now he was standing in a typical quiet tokyo suburb. I suppose this is where the fun starts. He sat by the curb and waited as the other transfered there. He took out another cigarette and lit it. He looked at the rest who were all ready to play. Most of them were trying to organize themselves. Takezo sat there waiting to see what would happen next. Taking in a puff from his cigaratte he started studying the group again.
As soon as she got transfered, Naomi separated herself a few metres from Tomoe. She wasn't angry about her. It was the other way around: Tomoe seemed to be angry, and the way she talked to her made Naomi feel guilty, but also mistaken. Of all the people in the world, she would have expected Tomoe to understand that she wouldn't do anything without a reason. But the way she had looked into her eyes, the way she spoke and what she said seemed to point exactly that out: She didn't understand it or didn't care.
Naomi hunkered down, at the corner of a nearby building, and suddenly wished that she was at home. Everything she had thought about the room, every joy of seeing Tomoe again was gone. She couldn't be strong. She tried to be, to defend her and herself, to hurt somebody in order to punish him for his disgusting personality. But she hadn't been able to do that. She failed, and even Tomoe had been against her. The feeling of being strong had vanished entirely and left empty space that felt like a black hole in her chest. Leading... No, I won't do it. I can't do it. I'm not able to protect anybody. Koi and everybody else is surely better off without me.
She stood up, went over to the boy who had shot her last time and said quietly, staring at his chest so that she wouldn't have to look into his eyes:
"You shouldn't count on me. If I try to help, it's more likely that I get both of us killed. Just make sure that you live through this. And... if it is necessary that you shoot at me to do so... don't hesitate."
She paused for a moment, then looked up, into Koi's face, and went on, even more silent:
"Anyways... You should be careful about Andre. He... He is dangerous for Tomoe. I'm sure that he'll try to... to... do something. And several of the other men stare at her most of the time, too. You have to protect her."
"Yeah. Once the teams are formed I want you to drive to the nearest alien, make sure it sees you and rush back. Maybe we can get them further apart and kill them one at a time. None of this going to look for them stuff. We lure one here and kill it."

"You're probably going to hate me for this, but I made you a team leader. Sorry. I...I'm glad you're alive." At that moment she wanted to hug him or show some sort of affection, but couldn't. "Don't do anything stupid."
With Naomi she returned the small kiss on the forehead she had recieved earlier from her. It seemed like an appropriately sisterly gesture.
"You don't have to lead any longer. Just make sure Koi is okay." She paused and looked up at Naomi while smiling. "I didn't thank you for before. I know you're just looking out for me. I've never had a better friend than you, Naomi. Start thinking of what you want to do together afterward. I promised we'd do whatever you want, didn't I?" She wanted to tack on another reminder about protecting Koi but knew that Naomi didn't need it. "You're not allowed to die, so don't even think about it."
Tomoe walked a few feet away from Naomi and Koi to announce the teams. The people in front of her already had so many decisions taken away from them already so she didn't see the harm in letting them pick their own team.
"Split up. Your choice. Just as long as there's six on each team and one bike per team. I'm leading one team Koi over there is leading the other. The clock is running so please pick quickly."
So far the teams were split into herself and Andre on one and Naomi, Koi and Jack on the other. She hoped that taking Dino's original idea of splitting up into teams was a good idea.
Dino let out a sigh of slight relief as he saw Koi patting himself down. He walked over to Tomoe and smiled slightly. "You've done good so far, girlie. I can take the reigns for a tad if you're hurtin' for a break." He looked down, then looked back sheepishly. "Sorry I forced dis on you."
"...It's okay. After the mission you can treat us to some grilled eel to make up for it. If I don't get killed this might be a good experience for me. I'll be relieved when the killing starts and I can focus on that.
So, where are you going to be? With Koi and Naomi or me and the quiet guy? Keep in mind I have Andre with me and Koi has no suit."
Andre was delighted to hear he really did end up on Tomoe's team and not psycho bitches. He wanted so tease Jack so he gestured over to Jack with a silly grin and said to him."You heard what the lady said.". Andre suspected Jack was scopin' Tomoe's ass too. Then shrugged his shoulders and proceeded to do a donut burn out on the bike. But he was not showing off this time. He was being asked to play the roll of a worm and needed to see just what the bike would do. "Just as easy to handle as my old bike (KAWASAKI'S NINJA ZX)". He also wanted the others to see he could ride incase anyone wanted to ride in the other seat.
"This is one worm that ain't gonna get got!".
"Hey what do we do if the cops come?" (talking to no one in particular).

Jack cruised over to Naomi and Koi. He felt a little awkward being around Naomi seeing as he just helped thwart her attack on Andre. Er, Sorry about before, i Didnt think that he would Point a Gun at you... Jack wasnt sure if she would understand what he was saying, but he hoped at least he seemed sincere enough that she would be able to work with him. He always hated when he knew someone didnt like him, especially if that someones a women.
Jack sat there for a moment afterwards, feeling pretty awkward, in an attempt to distract himself he unsheathed his Y Gun and Pointed it in an area where there werent any people, he then pulled both triggers to see what would happen. Suddenly A rope carried by three rockets jetisioned out of the gun, he had no idea where it even came from. Great, were fighting for our lives and i grap a net gun, just my luck.
Dino looked up thoughtfully. "Hmm...well Koi knows what he's doing, but the mute over there still doesn't seem to know much. Maybe he can go with Koi and Naomi to make sure Koi gets some extra protection while I stay with you to make sure the hoard of men that will inevitably run after you don't try anything." He looked towards Andre. "Especially him." He looked back to Tomoe and smiled. "But, 'tis all up to you, miss leader. I'm just here trying to help."
