The location: Sideways Warehouse #42, "The House of Meetings"
The time: 7:00pm at the Sideways Army Orientation, early June, all schools are out
As the usual suspects, Deena, Eek, and Relick, sat lined up in the front of the auditorium, Linxie and Katsu ushered potential army-men(and women) into seats. Siluial was being bothered by the pick-up line spouting Laurel as she attempted to arrange snacks on the snack table.
Eek stood up to the podium, shuffling some papers. "Good evening. Your prescence her today signifies your knowledge of Sideways's successful quest for world domination, and your lack of resistance represents your loyalty." She flipped a page. "Your loyalty is valued greatly in this orginization..." She went on about various ranks, positions to be filled, and jobs to be done, as well as an extended tirade of what it means to be loyal.
Deena, all this while, was fiddling with a miniscule female robot. A tiny voice squeaked from her left shoulder. "Is Mo-chan gonna be okay, Deena-sama?"
Deena turned her head and smiled warmly at the robot. These two robots were her cutest inventions yet; not only were they her own personal cheerleaders, but they helped greatly around the lab, doing regular maintenence on all of her computers, even the ones that were not in her network. "Don't worry, Sumomo-chan, Momo-chan'll be just fine." She fiddled with a few more screws, and then shut the casing gently, screwing it shut. "All done...wake up now, Momo-chan!"
The tiny, hand-sized robot rubbed her eyes(which was pointless since she didn't need to at all), and turned to her "brother" robot, crying, "Su-chan!"
"Mo-chan!" cried Sumomo in reply.
Deena grinned at the pair of little robots. "Now, you two be careful, I don't want you guys hurt again."
"Haaai, Deena-sama," they saluted unanimously, holding hands.
Eek finally drew her speech to a close. "That is all for today. Feel free to introduce yourselves to the other members, and enjoy the snacks and refreshments at the table. All of you must return promptly to the living quarters by midnight. That is all." She bowed and left the podium, putting a hand on Deena's shoulder. "I'm going to bed now, I've got a meeting in Italy tomorrow morning, and I'm not missing another plane." Deena nodded, as the crowd of future soldiers shuffled about.
