Sean couldn't believe the words that the girl said to him. Her words echoed through his brain like sharp and cold daggers. It's sad that a girl this young has so much hatred for all men. Something very traumatic must of happen to her for her to have such strong hatred. "If thats how you feel then whatever. Yes i am guilty for looking at Tomoe but how i feel and how Andre feel are two completely different things. On all honesty I think Tomoe is very pretty and I would like to get to know her better; if i survive the night that is. Something really bad happened to make you hate all men. You have my sympathy but really, GET OVER IT!!!! WORK THROUGH IT AND MOVE ON!!!" Sean then puts his X-Rifle and sword on the ground and takes five steps back. "If I offended you in any way then kill me. You need some kind of male punching bag and I volunteer;you hate men and I'm no exception. Go ahead, take your anger out on me". Sean could feel that this could be a mistake due to the young girl instability but at the same time he feels for him that its the right thing to do.
Tomoe didn't hear anything Naomi said but it was no stretch to assume what.

Personally, I don't think anyone sane would be useful anyway."
It wasn't until she was through speaking that Tomoe noticed she got through all of those words without pausing or stammering in her usual manner. The way in which she changed in the time since she first came to the room finally sunk in. She looked around at the others and wondered how they have changed as well.
Asking them later was another reason Tomoe intended to get through the night alive.
Andre winked at Tomoe (making sure psycho bitch saw him) pauses then said (In English)
"I'll be back."
He thinks if she likes American movies so much she'll get the reference.
He then peals out and heads out (SouthWest) with Takezo.
As soon as the two get out of range Andre pulls over and speaks to Takezo:
"I'll make this quick cause I don't want them bailing on us. Don't trust any of those veterans. They only know a little bit more than us. I'm not saying I know or believe what's happening but trust me we are being set up. I know it. Why do you think they let two noobs go off alone? You don't have to trust me either but just know they are not looking out for us.
I think there are shops around the corner lets hurry"
They continue on.

At first, Naomi couldn't believe what the man answered to her, but when he stepped back, leaving all of his weapons on the ground in front of her, she looked down at them and then slowly raised her head again, her eyes glowing with fury.
"You can't possibly imagine what I've been through. You can't imagine this kind of pain."
Her voice was trembling, but raising.
"You can't imagine the way it is to be powerless against three men, HOW IT FEELS TO BE RAPED! YOU WANT ME TO COME OVER IT?! GET YOURSELF RAPED! IF YOU CAN REPEAT THESE WORDS THEN, BE MY GUEST!"
She could hardly control her voice anymore. Her body was shivering, her fists clenched and the expression on her face would have made a drill seargent back up.
"Don't patronize me. You don't know anything. You are just as disgustful as everybody else. And now..."
She pointed at the weapons, trying to get herself under control again.
"Pick up your weapons."
Sean fully understood where her hatred came from. "To tell you the truth, I understand but at the same time I truly don't cuz I'm a guy. If I survive I tell you the story of someone close to me". Sean could feel tears begin to stream down his face. "You and her have a lot in common; you both have that same hatred. Same thing happened to her and I tried to help her through it, hell we even dated for a while. I don't know why but she killed herself. To this day I feel that its my fault she's gone. While saying this Sean's mind begins to race furiously and replays everything. From his ex-girlfriend funeral to taking the internship to the simultaneous deaths of the girl and the guy with gun. He was rather shock with himself on how he didn't think about it till now. Wow, I am so oblivious; god i shouldn't of said what I said. Man she must be feeling like crap. Sean walks over and picks up the rifle and sword. "Hey listen I shouldn't of said what I said to you. From the bottom of my heart I'm sorry. Its a horrible thing what happened to you and I've should of been sensitive to that. Its a hard to get over but it is possible; hey you know what lets start over". Sean holds out his hand "My name is Sean, whats yours??".
Blimey, raped by three guys? No wonder she has such a problem with guys like Andre who always think with their dick first and brain second. Jack suddenly felt a rush of pity over him for this girl, and how uncomfortable her situation must be right now. She was on a team that consisted of all men, some of which must seem as terrifying as an alien. He got off his bike and took a few steps towards her before talking "Hey, your right, I can't imagine what you've gone through, but I dont want to see anyone die if someone." Jack paused for a second "even Andre then i'll try to help them too." He wasnt sure how she would respond, he was sure as hell surprised with her vicious words before... Jack started to walk back towards his bike then he said "Lets just hope your as brutal to these aliens as you are to us guys."
Koi watched for the obvious signs of destruction from the rifle. When the spots started going off he couldn't believe it. It seemed the farthest he fired was maybe a third of a kilometer. Damn, this thing reaches far, probably farther then where I last shot...perfect.
Turning to his "team" Koi gets close enough to see one of his teammates put his weapons down, and what appears to be Naomi losing her temper. After she gets done yelling Koi gets closer, then after witnessing the bonding scene Koi says.
"Yeah pick up your weapons, you're going to need them. I don't suggest willingly putting them down again. And Naomi all I can say is it sucks yeah, but know my warning goes for you as well. It may seem iron fisted but as of right now we need everyone for this, and I know I fucked up last mission and shot you, which frankly wasnt anything I ever planned to do. But I need you calm because you will be in charge of the ground unit as you are the most capeable. If you really need motivation, think of the aliens as the pig rapist you just mentioned. As for me I'll be taking a high ground position, which I'll need a spotter. And chivalry dude you're it." Koi says pointing to sean. "It might not be that exciting but for the sake of making sure nothing gets to me while I snipe I need somone a hell of a lot more trustworthy than the dude that just walked off. Mainly because that guy on the bike is the second most shady person that we just got in....."
Taking a bit to think Koi then turns to Sean again, "So you know since you have a suit it's able to double youre speed and strength as well as protect against a shitload. It does have a limit so it can break, when that happens the caps on the suit ooze, so I wouldn't recommend messing with them, don't knwo if doing so messes it up but its safer than sorry. Also until they get back I want you to practice being able to jump high with your suit. I'm going to need you to take me to a suitable vantage point, and if it's not too tall jumping up to it will be easier than breaking in and climbing up the stairs, I suggest you ask Tomoe, or the other black guy who came in with a suit before the ball opened, on how exactly to figure out how to do it."
Then turning to the man on the bike, "You're probably going to provide a pivital part of the ground unit. Simply because if things get too shittastic then either try to get people out of there, or provide a decoy long enough to where it's attention goes to you....Also for future references far as I knwo our weapons can break, and that means the bike can as well, so if you see somethign coming that can destroy the bike and know it's going to hit then bail and run for it. Like I told chivalry dude over there the suit can protect you from a lot but it has a limit so try not to get hit too much. I'll be trying to cover everyone, and with chiv there I'll knwo youre positions without you guys even having to tell me because of the radar, so try not to fuck up too much."

Jack looked towards Koi, he knew he was talking to him, but the words didnt hit him. He got a few things out of it, mainly, 'decoy', people, and 'out'. His lack of understanding put him in a confused state. He sat there thinking then he just said 'no japanese, 'only english' (In japanese)

Koi heard the words, and he couldn't help but laugh.
Turning towards Naomi "Could you possibly translate?"
Just a moment ago things seemed fine...or as fine as they could be given their situation. Then things began to disintegrate rapidly. Naomi's aggression that before seemed like an asset began to look like a liability. The closest thing the team had to a leader was the most vulnerable one amoung them and some of the others didn't seem willing to follow anyone.
Dino's offer to take over leadership was tempting and at the moment seemed like the only option if Tomoe was the only one who could keep Naomi from exceeding what Tomoe considered an acceptable level of insanity.
She sighed as she joined Sean and Naomi.
"Remember after the last mission I told you how all people are in two groups, those in the room and those out? Sean and Andre are with us now which means that they're important." She reached to the slightly taller girl and wiped a tear beginning to form. "I...I don't like talking to people or being around them, but I know people. Sean's a good guy. We'll go out if we survive and do something normal, okay? Look at it this way. You trust me, right? I trust Koi and Sean here so you should trust them. You know...like a transitive property type thing."
As luck would have it Koi broke the awkwardness by asking Naomi for a translation.
