Griffin Control, Area S09.

...
......?

RO Who?!
Who's there?!

...

?? I'm Assassin of Sangvis Ferri.
Commander of Griffin, your time is up.

RO Humph...
Save it. If you really were Sangvis, you'd have died before you could run your mouth.

?? If I really were Sangvis, I wouldn't have given you time to even open your mouth.

...

Type92 At least lock the door when you're on duty.

RO (Shrugs) What's there to fear with you watching my back?

Type92 Don't let your guard down, Miss Commander.
All personnel assigned to you this time are notorious punks, present company included.

RO You're very dependable as an adjutant. We may have worked together only for a couple of days, but I have no doubt about it.

Type92 Why, thank you. But compliments will get you nowhere.
You still have much room for improvement, Commander. Work hard, okay?

RO Well, it's only for this one-off operation.
And stop calling me Commander. I'm just a T-Doll with temporary authorization.

Type92 Whatever. You're in command in any case.
Enough with the small talk, RO. Wash your face and wake yourself up.
There's been new development in the search for Document 36. Time for you to make your decision.

RO (Sighs) Okay. I'll make some coffee. Keep going.

Type92 Our teammate found a lead here, but she triggered a Sangvis alarm and is having trouble slipping away.

RO Tell her to standby where she is. You go get her. I'll cover you.

Type92 How decisive of you. Not gonna observe the situation a bit longer?
This place is prowling with Sangvis forces. Perhaps we should wait for Makarov to come back with directives from the higher-ups...?

RO The local human residents have been evacuated, while Sangvis forces haven't completely occupied the area. Now is our only chance.
We can't afford to wait for Makarov. Grab Document 36 and run for it.
But who's the teammate in question?

Type92 Who do you want it to be?

RO Anyone who's reasonably reliable, really. I don't want this to be a fool's errand...

Type92 Then sorry to disappoint...

RO 10 out of 10 in terms of bad news?

Type92 Maybe a 7.

RO (Shrugs) Fine. I'll just treat it as a rescue mission...
Everybody listen, our target this time is the Sangvis command post in the area. We are to give our companion a chance to escape.
All right, Griffin, prepare to move out!

Rescue mission accomplished. Type92 successfully rendezvous with the trapped teammate.

Type92 RO, I've reached the destination. About to meet up with her any second now.

RO Good. Let me see who on earth...

AAT-52 Merci! Merci!
I knew you wouldn't just leave me, Mademoiselle Type92!

RO ...
If you call this a 7, what's 10 for you?

Type92 10 is if we came too late and all there's left to rescue was a squashed tomato.
And if we go by common sense, a squashed tomato can't spit out any information.

AAT-52 Non, non, even a tomato that hasn't been squashed can't speak!
Uhh wait... You're talking about me?

RO ((Sighs) At least tomatoes don't talk nonsense and have us running after things like butterflies and taxis...

AAT-52 Hey! I really found actual information this time, alright?!
Listen, I know where Document 36 is!
It's currently in the safekeeping of a human that has stayed behind!

Type92 A human that has stayed behind? ...Are you sure you're not mistaken?
All human residents have been evacuated. That's why we could slip in to look for you.

RO No... It actually is possible.
A few humans have gone missing during the evacuation. Judging by the information, these people couldn't have missed the evacuation notice.
They must've stayed behind deliberately to move those documents before Sangvis Ferri made it here...

Type92 Then it gets tricky. Even if we find them, we can't just fight them for the document.

RO Uh... Why can't we?

Type92 Have you forgotten, RO?
Unless given special permission by a superior, Griffin automatons can't exercise violence of any kind against any human being.

AAT-52 Not even verbal abuse!
Bien sûr, if they request this kind of service, we are more than welcome to deliver it.

Type92 What? Don't tell me you don't know about that...

RO Ah... Working at Griffin still takes some getting used to...

Type92 I know. You came back not long ago, after all. There must be many things you're unfamiliar with.
You returned just for Document right? Don't get too excited and botch it.

RO Don't worry. I know what I have to do.
First things first, find the human in possession of Document 36. We'll deal with whatever comes next.
