a new order

Post by cornix on 16/4/2018, 23:54

Birds. Sun. Pain. Cora had a wonderful morning. Only yesterday she had finally arrived at the pack's new shared HQ. It had not been long since it was established, but she herself was quite happy with the location. With the pack's current size they had just chosen an abandoned village. They were in the process of rebuilding it and getting more independent. The first step for that: breeding their own horses. With Cora being the secret animal enthusiast she was, she was quite satisfied with it.
Still, it would probably take a good half a year before everyone would get used to it and they would start working on things together more. Currently this was a neutral ground. They would keep their main districts of operations but...everyone would know what everyone else was doing more. She was still impressed by her ability to convince the rather conservative alphas to live together...but it worked.
And now. She probably had the most violent roommates she could have ever wished for.

She groaned and slowly sat up in bed. Cora had bruises all over her body together with quite a huge amount of abbrations and cuts. She was used to pain, probably being a slight masochist herself, but she hated the fact that it impaired her so much. Esspecially as she really felt the need to proove herself to the rest of the Alphas.
Cora took a mirror lying next to her bedside. She looked awful, dark circles under her eyes, her hair was everywhere but where it should be and she had a cut on her forehead. Marvelous. She layed back down in bed and sighed. It was no use, she had to face them sometime today...it was better to get it over now and not appear as weak or hurt as she was.

Ludwig knocked on the door and opened it without asking if he could or not. Typical. He would probably leave it open afterwards.
"Cora...I shall go downwards now. If you need me, uhm...call or something. I am pretty darn hungry."
She just nodded and as she guessed...he left the door open. Marvelous.
Cora stood up, cared for some of her wounds, changing bandages and got dressed. Then she went downwards to eat.

All the Alphas and Betas were supposed to eat together. Or atleast in the same room, maybe different times. There were three tables in the room. One on the top, for the alphas, and two perpendicular to it for all Betas.
Cora went into the room, just nodded to greet everyone and threw her bloody bandages into the trash before sitting down at her designated table.

Renn was already sat down at the table, eating bread and dried meat. By the looks of things, he was the most awake out of everyone currently in the room.

His eyes were focused on Cora as she entered the room. As she nodded her greetings and as she threw away her bandages.
The Snake didn't reply, not even with the slightest of gestures, he just watched.

He hadn't greeted anyone that morning. Talking was a nuisance. The only reason he agreed to a shared space is to learn about the others. Their weaknesses, their strengths, anything information he can get ahold of to give him an advantage.

He was too busy focused on listening out for any gossip shared between Betas that the second his eyes left Cora she had sat down. Opposite him. Great.

Renn rolled his eyes, understanding at this point conversation was inevitable.
"Well look who finally returned to the world of the living," his voice blunt as usual and his twisted smile placed perfectly.

"So tell me, do you feel as bad as ya look? Or worse? Oh please tell me is worse."
His smile widened, looking all the more crazy and menacing.

He took a vicious bite out of his sandwich. There was no competition for which Alpha was most freaky.
Well, at least until the message is understood.

König was not normally as brutish as he is now. His actions currently are just a statement, showing the other Alphas, their Betas, and all the other goons here that he is not one to mess with.
Of course, his division under him already knew that but there was nothing wrong with a little reminder, was there?

Renn chuckled.
"Ssso, how'd you get hurt so bad anyway? Did you fall over? Or did my hitman finally hit you?"

Cora was greeted by a way too awake Renn. In her defense, he had had a good night's rest of sleep. She did not. Riding was already uncomfortable over long distances, but if you were hurt...she did not enjoy it at all.

The world of the living? She wanted to smile, but did not. It was not a good time to let anyone see that she had in fact emotions.
She looked at him with a rather bored expression instead. The bite she took out of her sandwich was almost as bored as the expression she had.
He had to show everyone how brutish he was, she had to show everyone that she did NOT in fact have to show everyone. It was a good strategy in her opinion.
Cora, and probably the other Alphas, were very well aware of the games they were going to play while they were living here. It was fun. Just not that fun if you could barely swallow your sandwich and had to put in all your efforts to look like it did not hurt.

"Ssso, how'd you get hurt so bad anyway? Did you fall over? Or did my hitman finally hit you?"
She looked up to him, smiling.
"First of all: I do feel as bad as I look. Not better, not worse. ", this was a blatant lie, she felt way worse than she looked, mainly because they could not see the rest of her body, "Second: Your hitman, dearest, is hanging in my closet. He was no match for me and is not the cause of me looking this awful."
There was no hiding the way she looked towards everyone here. She just hoped they would not think it was as bad as it was. It was no good showing them weaknesses.
"I was on a mission in the underground.", she took another bite out of her sandwich, "A unicorn captain asked me."
She was not sure how much she should tell them. It was not that the mission was not something extremly secret now. It was just how much they were interested in it, she did not want to bother them after all.
Given Renn was curious by nature, she figured it was okay to say atleast a bit more.
"Some cultists. Wanted to get out of there...that did not work out too well in the end..."
She was happy with her answers, she had given them a bit of information, but not how or when she got hurt.
Cora looked at Renn.
"And what makes you so happy in the morning? Because you can listen to a bit of gossip the Betas have to say? Is that way you chose this marvelous position?"
She was not sure if he had actually done that, but given how much he loved knowing everything, it was no surprise.

Renn listened, his face didn't change but he couldn't say he wasn't intrigued. Cora had ventured to the Underground, something Renn would like to do sometime, just to see if it's as bad as rumours say.

"I'm happy in the morning because I woke up. Any other information would jusst be telling."

Another bite out of his sandwich, he didn't have much left to eat. Good, that means he can schedule his troop and then snoop around for the rest of the day.

"How about we change the subject back to you. Already working for the military like a dog, eh? How's that going for you? Paid well, I hope?"

A lie. One of many. Renn never cared for others, they were all disposable. All that mattered was him. As long as no one could foil his long term plans, he was fine.

Cora watched him eat for a bit. She was not sure when had been the first time she had met Renn. Had probably been quite some time. Or...not? Her memory always had holes, given her other two personalities tended to take over. And if that happened...she did not remember anything. Rather annoying.

"You are happy you woke up? Were you fearing we would kill you already?", she said, chuckling, "and it's nice of you asking to change the topic back to me! You know how to charm a lady, don't you?", Cora grinned and paused a bit.
"Well, the pay makes up for what I had to do. But trust me...no adventures with THAT captain anytime soon. It would not end up pretty for him."

She finished her sandwich, she was everything but hungry. Cora was tired. It was no surprise given her wounds, but she could not rest anytime soon. It would...seem suspicious. She might overestimate the whole playing Alpha wolf way too much. But better safe than sorry. Even though, if she pushed herself too much...it would not be good either. Dammit.

"Anyway Renn, let me ask you some things. I know you are more of a listener and I hope I am not cornering you in any way....but how is your own military project coming along?", she crossed her arms and leaned back, taking a rather relaxed position.
"I am pretty positive I am the only Alpha in the pack capable of using 3DMG. Do you want me to give you an introduction?", it was an honest question as she would really like to see Renn in more action.

Renn gave a fake chuckle as he finished off the last bite of his sandwich.

"Why are you ssso interested in me all of a sudden, eh? Very well. I've been on some missions with the MP; escorting, guarding... boring stuff. I've only done it so they get used to my presence and know who I am. Well, what I want them to know as who I am. Gotta be able to keep secrets, right?"

Renn leaned forward, getting in Cora's personal space with intention, as though to suggest that she may have secrets.
His smile never faulted, keeping its twisted form always present.

"Hmm, 3DMG, huh? What, what them soldiers use? Could be ussseful I suppose. In that case. Yes. Teach me. Couldn't be worse than what it took to be here, to be an Alpha, could it?"

Renn tapped against the table twice, as if to prove a point. Blood and sweat went into getting this far up the food chain. More blood than sweat but still the same, nonetheless.

Renn sat back to his original position, waving a hand as a gesture for it to be Cora's turn. Renn new the inside and outs of such situations like these, there was always a true intention behind it all.

"Go on then. What's the catch? What do I have to do for you in return. There's something, for something so out of the blue. Might asss well tell me. What deal with the she-demon do I have to fulfil?"

Renn asking why Cora was so interested in him made her quite uncomfortable. Same with him invading her personal space just a sentence later. She did not like anyone, and esspecially not someone as capable of killing people as he was close to her. If she would not be as trained as she was right now she might even be afraid. But as she was still capable of fighting him off quite well, even though, not necessarily now...she was not.

Cora stared blankly at him when he said that it could not be worse than becoming an Alpha. He was right. And given her latest mission in the underground, it made it even worse.
"Not worse than becoming an Alpha, eh...", she said coldly, scoffing, "How right you are..."
She was glad she finally was with some that understood and would not judge her for what she was doing. But...they were worse than her. They did not get a chance to see how other people were, and she hoped she would not seem too sentimental to either of them.

"What's the catch?", he suddenly asked and Cora's expression change to surprise.

"Uhm.", was all she managed to get out. She turned slightly red, most certainly not visible for someone that had a normal skin colour, which she sadly didn't.
"Uhm.", she said again, "To be fully honest. I did not think of it.", she scratched her head, "I just wanted to see how you would make yourself...maybe have some fun laughing at your first attempts of staying in balance."
Cora grinned, "But if you really want to give me something...I could always use some more knives!"

The smile finally dropped.
Renn tilted his face, confused. It wasn't normal that people went red in the face around him. That usually only happened when he strangled people... but that was rare.

"Are you... choking? Your face. Its gone red. Not suffocating are you? Food in your wind pipe? Not a way to go, especially for an Alpha. It's just... boring."

The smile returned to him as he listened to Cora's terms for her teaching him and he shook his head, "you and your knives. There must be better weapons. Fine, I'll get you more knives. I'll also let you laugh at any mistakes I make... without consequences. I feel that's fair."

Cora's face turned even redder when he asked her if she was choking.
"You are an idiot.", Nec said, "she is pale, not as pale as you there, Snowwhite. But she still is. You confused her. It happens. You should go talk to some normal people sometime."
Cora cut herself off, "I am sorry, you should not have had to witness that.", she looked down at the other sandwiches. Should she take some with her? She decided against it, she could always get some fresh ones.
"If I am dying, it won't be at the hands of a tomato sandwich. Or any sandwich.", she said, "unless it's poisoned, in which case...I should stop."
She was nervous because of Nec suddenly taking over without her consent. It happened sometimes and it just showed the power he had over her body, which she always underestimated. It was good that Vex did not have it.
"You could also alternatively get me a new trained protection dog. They proove to be quite useful.", she was talking a bit faster than usual.

Cora stood up, "I will go ahead. I already told my division what they have to do today. If you want to brief yours, you can do it now. I will wait", the first two steps she was limping a bit, but then she was able to walk properly again.

Cora went outside, it was a rather okay morning. A bit cold if you did not move but perfect for when you did effort. She went to the replications of swings that were used in the military as well and prepared everything for Renn and herself. She then sat down, so she would not waste any energy and waited while sharpening a few of her knives.

Renn nodded slowly. He wasted no time getting up from the table and heading to his district's division of the new headquarters.

On the way, Renn contemplated what he knew about Cora. Split personalities, he was told. That must have been what happened earlier. He had to admit to himself that he hadn't spent much time paying attention to the other Alphas to know about them individually. A problem.

Renn swung open the door to his meeting room, where his Beta, Garin, had managed to gather all of the grunts that were under Renn's command.

"Alright, you parentless pieces of shit! I'm busssy today so you guys are gonna take any unimportant and/or boring missions that require our services. Any important missionssss or interesting ones shall be brought to my attention via Garin. You already know the consequences so you know what will happen if you disobey me."

Renn didn't move from the doorway, he didn't have to. His appearance was going to be quick and his debriefing quicker, to which it was.

"Garin, my Beta, will be left in charge. Do as he says. Don't fuck up."

With that, Renn slammed the door behind him as he left the room.
Striding down the corridors to meet Cora outside, he took off his coat that rested on his shoulders and folded it up before slinging it over his arm.
He assumed it would only get in the way, so it would be better to take it off now than later.

The Snake ran through his head every fact he knew about 3DMG which was actually not much. He only knew that it involved swords, gas and balance, with the last bit of data just from recent talk.

Renn made a mental note to hang around Cora, acknowledging that he might get more information out of her compared to the other Alphas. It would take some time though but that was ok, Renn had the time... and he also had the patience.

He carefully opened the door to exit the building and noticed Miss. Wolf sitting down. He quietly approached her, walking slowly.

"So, shall we get started?"

Cora had almost fallen asleep by the time he had come back and was quite startled when he suddenly started talking. She had heard him approaching, subconciously, but had sorted him into the 'no thread' part, given the way he had walked.

She nodded and stood up. "I suggest you put your coat somewhere where it does not get dirty. You can put it on my jacket if you don't want to lay it down. It's pretty, I understand that.", she said and threw her own leather jacket on the floor. It was easily cleaned, nor did she care too much how it looked. She looked awful herself, what did clothes matter?

Cora got the two belts she had prepared and handed one of them to Renn. "Just put it on, do what I do. This one is easy to put on...not like the full 3DMG. It's straps everywhere and if you have it the wrong way it is extremly confusing.", she chuckled. She herself had had some problems the first time she saw one. It just did not make much sense at first, but by now, she could put one blind. A skill she had tought herself in private at some point, because she was bored during training.

She put her own belt on and then went to one of the swing like structures.
"I will go first, just to show you how it is done."
Cora stood on a stool to attach herself to the wires, then shoved it away, staying upright. She had more trouble than she would have had usually, given the bruises but she still managed to do it without much of a problem.
"In theory: easy, stay upright. Now...", she reached for the stool again to stand on it.
"What we have here is way less fancy than what they have in the military. But the stool still kind of works well."
She detached herself and carried it to the other swing. Cora was not very keen on staying attached to wires for too long, she was not able to show anyone her best now and she was way too proud to let them know.

"Your turn, Mister Alpha Wolf."

Renn watched Cora put on the belt and followed as she did so. He was quick at learning things, especially when watching it be done,so the belt was no problem.

He then watched as she attached herself to the wires. He found it slightly funny to see her stand on a stool. As he watched Cora balanced, he listened. Before he knew it she got off of the wires.

"Well, thanksss for not explaining how to do it. That helps a lot. How did you know?"

Vicious sarcasm. A specialty of Renn's. He used mainly to make people feel bad or dumb. However in this case, he was just trying to be annoying. If he can get her comfortable enough to talk then getting gossip out of Cora would be easy. Easier than it would be otherwise, at least.

At the other set of wires, the stool was place. Renn had climbed it and got in position. He hooked himself to the wires and tested them, can't blame him to check safety for a thing he's never done before.

"By the way, I'm not a wolf. I'm a snake."

With confidence he pushed the stool out from under him. He managed to stay upright for two seconds but suddenly he had whipped around and was hanging upside down.
Luckily he had tucked his head in just in time to avoid smacking it against the floor.

"Ugh. You know, some tipsss or pointers would really help."

A small attempt at struggling. Stopped. Renn raised a hand, arm stretched, as a gesture for assistance.

"And a hand up would be nice. I would like to try again."

Renn huffed out a sigh. Cora better had been enjoying this. If he knew it was going to be this embarrassing he may have included some consequences instead of none.

Cora watched him attach himself to the wires. Atleast he understood how to put on both belt and wires. That made it easier for her.

"I am sorry, but I am not sure how I can explain to you that you just have to keep your balance. And I am also sorry to tell you that there are wolf packs, but as far as I know there are no snake packs. I guess...most snakes live alone. They are also mostly cannibalistic. Some eat their own children...", she grinned and looked at him sideways, "You are quite interesting then. Did not know you practiced such weird...practices."

Then he suddenly fell, she immediatly darted forward to stop his head from hitting the ground, but he had managed to avoid that himself. She looked at him from above, smiling and then laughing a bit.
"This was so worth it! So worth it!", she said happily, still laughing and trying to keep herself from it.
"Now. Lemme help", instead of grabbing his hand, she helped him up by pulling him up by his shoulders.
From experience when she was a trainee she knew that even if he weighed only as much as she did, it would still be a struggle. And she really did not want to struggle now. He was embarassed already, no need to embarass her as well.

She brought him into an upright position and held him there by his hips.
"You can hold onto my shoulders, I will stay here like this for a bit until you manage to catch your balance."
Cora looked up to him, still grinning from before.
If he would hold onto her shoulders, she would flinch a bit, just enough to make her stop smiling for a bit.

She held onto him for a while, then would let go of his hips and instead take his arms.
"Like this you just gradually get used to keeping your balance. It's not really too stable anymore. So if you fall, please fall backwards. And if you can't manage that, atleast let go of me so I can get out of the way."

Renn nodded to Cora as a gesture of thanks and once she positioned him upright again, she offered him her shoulders which he hesitantly accepted.

With on gand now placed on Cora, König steadied himself and focused. He was trying to find out if his balance was still off by feeling if the wires were trying to push him forward or backward.

"At least, you're finding this entertaining. Living up to the promise, eh? Strange women, you are. Very strange."

Forwards. The wires were trying to shift him forwards. He moved his weight to counter and after that the wires seemed stable.

"Ssso, that mechanic boy. The on you brought to the meeting. You and him aren't a thing, are ya?"

An attempt to wring out a little bit of information through seemingly normal conversation. Reen remembered vaguely what the man looked like and he wasn't impressed with Cora's standards.

It may have been the worst to assume but König could remember the "rule" of no outsiders, especially for meetings. Still, most rules were thrown out of the window but that doesn't explain why she brought him.

Renn let go of Cora, feeling balanced and ready. Four seconds before his body rocked and rushed to fall backwards. As König was going down, he tucked himself into a ball which helped him avoid major damage.
He grunted in displeasure.

Cora chuckled at him calling her a strange woman.
"Oh come on! Don't tell me you don't get entertained by others hurting themselves in funny ways you have already mastered.", she grinned and watched him how he was staying in the cables. He did quite well so far. But...that did not mean anything. Balance was important but it really was not the only thing needed.

"And about me and the mechanic, no, we are not a thing. Purely professional relationship. He makes 3DMGs for us, I provide protection for his warehouse. Which...still kinda counts as the military, so I am not too sure...if he actually employs me...or if it's the military. Whatever. I get quite a sum out of that each month. So...things are going well."

He let go of her and managed to hold himself up for quite some time longer, but he still fell in the end. Gladly not on her. That's the last thing she needed right now, someone his size falling on her after she just came back from a fight with someone about his size and weight.

She clapped. "You have a good sense to avoid damage, don't ya?", she scratched her head, "I should really get that as well. Would save me alot of trouble. Esspecially bar fights.", the last sentence was whispered and barely hearable.

Cora helped him up again, but almost let him fall back down accidentally.
"I am sorry, that was not intentional.", she grabbed his arms again and took the same position as before.
"So why are you asking about the mechanic? Are you worried I am bringing in people from outside and end up betraying all of you?", she said it jokingly but was actually serious. He might think that and she really did not want anyone to think she was or could be a traitor in any way. Even though, it was funny given it came from the person who was considered a traitor by most. She was not even sure what she was considered by the other Alphas. Probably just that she was an annoying youngster. Also female. And...did she say annoying already? But the still did follow her, so she was doing something right.
"Same as before, let go of me when you want. Maybe I actually manage to catch you for once, eh?", she grinned again.

Renn nodded. Seeing others fail pathetically was indeed funny but right now he was the one failing.

"Its not really a good sense of avoiding damage, more like recovery moves. Want to be able to get back into a situation as quick as possible, which usually tend to be fights. As it turns out doing so takes less damage than usual."

Renn grabbed onto Cora's shoulder again and waited for the wires to stabilise. He focused to center his balance once more as a preparation.
König listened to Cora explain her relationship with the mechanic and only nodded to show he was listening.

He was a little disappointed that he couldn't use the life of the young Shimura's life as a bargaining chip in the future but there was a chance he still could, so not all was lost.

"Nah, I just thought there was a rule that no outsiders can attend anything as important as a meeting, not that it matters though as most rules are broken."

The wires slowly returned to being stable and Renn had regained his idle balance. Understanding what he has to do now from his previous two failed attempts, he let go of Cora and only slightly moved every now and then to counter balance any tilts that he started to make.
He had managed to stay upright.

"Hmm, this was anti climatic. I thought it would have felt... different. At least some numbing in the feet. So dissssappointing."

He hung there, now slowly swinging back and forth. He had became comfortable enough to now control movements.

Cora watched him staying upright. He did extremly well for someone doing this the first time. It showed how well the members of the pack were trained in all sorts of fields.

"About that rule...yes there technically is one. But if you need a professional opinion from an outside, I am pretty sure it's considered okay.", she did not believe him that that was the only reason he had asked. It did not seem like Renn to tell her which rules there are and which rules there aren't.

She chuckled a bit at her thoughts, "You know Renn, just because you are older does not mean you can lecture me about rules. Pretty sure you go against way more than I do."

Cora mustered him to see how he was staying in the swing. He was going back and forth, which was...quite amusing.
"You say that you are disappointed, but come on, you look like a happy little kid. Their swings are not much different."
She stayed out of his reach on purpose so he could not punch her for how she was teasing him. She still went beside him and patted his shoulder a bit hard, a harmless attempt to get him out of balance.

Renn chuckled his eerie chuckle, "I didn't say you shouldn't be breaking them. It's just that that rule was so unimportant that I keep forgetting it's a thing."

He didn't like the mechanic, nor the fact that Cora was working with him. Any good guy like that is trouble for people like us. Renn would never be able to promise that guy walking out alive if he ever came here.

He sort of listened to Cora mock him. It didn't affect him, being called a kid. Mainly he didn't care because she was if equal status to him, if it was a Beta or lower then he would have had his tongue.

Cora then patted him on the shoulder hard. Renn struggled and swivelled but he managed to regain his balance and keep his swing. Just. If he didn't, he would have definitely face planted.
He hissed.

"You tried to knock me over just then, didn't you?! Just so you can get a laugh!?"

His smile turned into a grin.

"Fair play. You're quite sly. No wonder why you are an Alpha. Unlike Gillian, I'm surprised no one has gutted him yet for his position. He's weak and an easy target."

Cora went in front of him again, making the straightest face she could possibly make.
"No, it was just for training. Obviously. How can you even doubt me in the least?"
She kept up the face for another second or so before she started laughing.

"Gillian eh? Are we gossiping now?", she stood before him, still in his reach, but she was quite confident to be able to dodge anything he would try to do fast enough, "Tsch, tsch, tsch you are girlier than me Renn. Gossiping. How could you?"

"On a serious note though", Nec suddenly said, "I agree with you. He is weak. But don't underestimate him, he is also careful, very careful. That might be why."
She placed her hands on her mouth.
"I am sorry", she looked down, "That should not have happened. I am tired, I can't control myselves properly. Well one of them. The other one should be hidden quite well."
As expected Vex suddenly started complaining loudly in her head. He should just take over, make everything more interesting, maybe get into a fight with Renn. That was something Cora did not want right now. She was still hurt, and maybe..., maybe she was almost on the same level as him, maybe above him usually, but not in her current condition.

"I hope you don't mind that, it could happen more often.", Cora was nervous. She wanted to control everything others thought about her, so she would know as well, and nothing unexpected would happen. But with...Nec suddenly talking....she could not properly anymore.
She cleared her throat, "Well then, let's continue a bit more. It's okay if you can just stand still, but...it's still better if I shove you around a bit.", it was a sad attempt to change the topic.

Renn slowed his swinging gradually until he eventually stopped.

"Well, for someone who just said that I was 'girly' for gossiping, you joined in. Which means it works. Gossip is the best way to get shreds of information out of people."

Renn dropped his smile, he didn't always sustain it but most of the time when he was happy.

"As for your personalitiessss, I'm ok with it. I get to learn more about them each time they pop up. Which is always helpful to me, means I have less work to do."

Renn unhooked himself from the wires and dropped to the ground. When his feet were firm on the floor, he straightened himself and dusted himself off.

"That started getting boring. That can't be it, can it? If it is then I'll do it for a few minutes every... other day, maybe. Just so I don't forget."

Renn folded his arms and waited for the next lesson of the training... if there was one. Otherwise, he'd grab his coat and go to the library to research. Alternatively, he could go on a mission but he didn't really want to.

Cora handed him his coat.
"There is more...the military takes a long ass time to teach you anything about it at all. They also have some training in between...to defend yourself against humans. So hand to hand combat.", she scratched her head, "It's not like we need to do that...how about we first find you some proper gear that you can put on that also fits you?"

She decided to not comment on his comment about her personalities. It was true, he found out more. But he only found out how they worked, how they maybe thought, and not their strengths or weaknesses.

Cora grabbed her own jacket and went towards the storage room for 3DMG.
She decided to get rid of the awkward silence in between them while they were walking there.
"So....you asked me on what mission I was...anything interesting and...obviously non secret from your side lately?"

Renn took his coat and carefully placed it on his shoulders, it's usual resting position.

The Snake walked with Cora as they headed to they head to the storage room.
His mind contemplated on why the military needed to learn hand-to-hand combat and why they'd take so long on teaching trainees about the gear they rely on most.
Unfortunately, Renn guessed he'd never have the opportunity to study this and find the answers.

Cora started making small talk, to which Renn guess was to fill the silence.
"Not really. It's been usual for me. Assassinations, spying and the like. Any work with the military has been escorting fat blokes with money or standing outside a door."

Renn sighed, "you've been taking all the good missions with going outside the walls and helping them the most. I'm starting to wonder if it's because of your 'professional relationships' and if you're getting attached."

Renn shrugged, the smile returned, "not like there's anything wrong with that of course. Heck, there's a chance that even I may get attached to a few people in the future..."

Renn chuckled. Cora may have been right. He may have been kid-like after all. He didn't find that as a problem, it made it more enjoyable. Made it sound like he had a shred of innocence. So far, only he knew that was far from the truth.

Cora laughed at Renn complaining about her good missions, but quickly stopped the moment he said she would get attacked to certain people. She did not want to believe it herself, so she did not want others to believe it either. She considered them 'friends'...but...nothing more. That's what she thought at least. And that's what Nec and Vex thought.

She looked at him sideways when he said that he would get attached to people in the future.
Cora was not sure if she should reply anything towards what he said. She enventually decided for it. It was no good if he thought something she did not want him to think after all.

"About me getting all the good missions. I get them because I have the right connections and because I am capable of using 3DMG.", she said without a slither of emotion in her voice, "About me getting attached and my relationship to other people...I could say it's none of your business, but that would not be true. It does concern you as someone who is leading the same group of people that I am. So...just to explain it to you.", she stopped walking, "I did enjoy the company of certain people in the military. Including the mechanic, before you continue asking about him. They have a great sense of humour and...even if you don't understand it, I have been with normal people for quite some time, and sadly picked up some of their habits. Now that I am back though, I have become more of my normal self again, which caused them....to dislike me more. That kind of summarizes my current relationship with them. No worries. I am one: not bringing in outsiders, Two: I will not betray the pack."

She paused for a bit, letting him take in the information.

"About why I am working so much with the military: the money...they offer so goddamn much of it. It's amazing. And...the other reason you will understand once you have used 3DMG."
She smiled at her last words and continued walking. This time without initiating any conversation or planning to do it either.

Renn raised an eyebrow at Cora's remarks.

"I don't know why you feel you had to ssssay all that. I meant you see them as... at least friends... maybe even brother or sister-like."

Renn looked up at nothing, sorting out what he was going to say and how to say it. Gotta get these things right if you want specific outcomes.

"If one, or multiple, died... would you be sad? Probably. you perhaps wouldn't cry or mourn them, maybe you won't feel a thing, but you may miss them or regret not hanging around them as much as you could of. The point is; you'll end up feeling something for them, perhaps you do now. That doesn't bother me. It shouldn't in hell bother the other Alphassss. I don't think you'll betray us for it. It could be a good thing, even. End of the matter issss, you're getting attached in a way."

Renn looked at Cora and gave a small, soft smile. It looked genuine but wasn't actually in the slightest. Renn was a master pretender, a skill needed to convince people that you are not a bad guy.

"You don't have to put on a tough act if you don't want to, you know. You're your own persssson. You don't have to live up to mine or the other Alphas expectations. I certainly don't care if I live up to yours or not and the others sometimessss don't live up to mine, especially Gillian. It doesn't bother me though, they are them and will do things differently."

He didn't quite grasp as to why he was telling her this. Maybe it was a feeling in his gut, that she could do something that he or the others couldn't. Make a change in a certain way that will better the Pack as a whole.
He was fine with supporting her, just like anyone else, as long as he could get his uses out of her and she won't try to get in his way.

Cora could not get confused at Renn's reply. Like any good alpha she had set some of her people on finding out a part of his backstory. She kind of knew how he handled his people and she kind of knew what had happened to him and how he had ended up in the pack. That's why she was so surprised at what he was saying now. He was not one to care for anyone or anything, atleast, that's what she had heard. It's not like she knew anything about it personally...but...there had to be some bit of truth if everyone had said that.

Neither made his whole speech whether or not she would be sad if they died feel her better. More like the opposite, she was now a slight bit worried they were on his hitlist.
She consulted the others in her head and decided on a way to react. Usually she only got influenced a bit, it was not usual to ask Nec for advice. He was anyway active, so what harm could it do.
"Maybe you are right. Maybe I am getting or am attached even. I doubt I can deny that much. But to be fully honest...I have learned my lesson about getting attached to people. It only ends up bad. One way or another, one of you is going to die, or hurt you. It's no use doing it."
This was a common thing all three agreed on. Getting attached was no use. It only ended up hurting you.
She hoped he had made him atleast believe a bit of what she had said. The best way to make someone believe something was after all lying but with adding a bit of truth. Which she did.

That to be said, she probably had to warn either Mitsuo or Alan, or well, both about being in danger at some point...

Cora got half pissed off at him saying that she did not need to put up a tought act. What did he mean with that? That she was weak? She certainly was not and if it was not for her being injured she would pin him to the next wall and show him how 'tough' he was!
She frowned and stared down into the soil.
"I might have misunderstood you right now.", she said coldly and entered the shed.

Cora searched for some 3DMG then caught one of her own soldiers and quickly told him to fetch her her own. She really did not want to use any different one.

After handind Renn his and getting her own she started heading to a nearby forest.
