EP. 07-6  Reunion (1)

Five minutes after sabotaging the Sangvis communication outpost.

Kalin Commander, we're being hailed on a public channel!
It bears the identification of Sangvis Ferri. Most probably the Ringleader behind this attack.
What do we do? Should I answer the call?

...Sangvis call accepted.

Dreamer Good morning, Griffin Commander.
I don't know how exactly you located my communication outpost. Someone's probably been cheating.
But then again, it's dull to strategize by the rules. Variables like this are what makes things fun.
So...allow me to join in on this little game...

Kalin Commander! Massive amount of Sangvis unit signals incoming at 4 o'clock position from the detention center!

Dreamer I'm targeting that detention center. Make no mistake, I'm much more lethal than the little bugs from before...
I'll kill every single Griffin T-Doll in sight with my own hands.
Well? Would you like some time to come up with a countermeasure?

Kalin What do we do, Commander?
If we intercept Dreamer, we won't be able to defend the detention center.
Besides, we don't even know what's going on inside the establishment. We have no way of breaking in to get them out...

RO635 Commander, Miss Kalin, please leave the mission to me.
I have already reached the detention center and am about to infiltrate the building.
I shall follow the preset stratagem and rescue all trapped T-Dolls, including M4A1.

Kalin Can it be done, RO?
But...signal is completely jammed by Parapluie within the detention center.

RO635 Parapluie isn't the cause of the jam. It's something much more terrifying.
But don't worry. I've brought a device to neutralize the threat.
I'm also equipped with a basic command module, which enables me to issue simple commands in the building.

Kalin Should I transfer all control of the detention center to her?

RO635 ...

RO635 Thank you for your recognition, Commander.
Please concentrate on intercepting Dreamer, and leave the rescue of the AR Team and the others to me.
Rest assured, it shall be done.

Dreamer Time is running out. Have you gathered your wits and forces to stop me...?
...Splendid. Then let the game begin...
I look forward to your warm reception, Lord Commander ♪.

35 minutes after exchanging fire with Dreamer's troops.
...LG2/F, Detention Center "Mario's Princess".
...

Mastermind Why...
Why can't I decrypt it?
Guess I'll have to bring her with me...
(Clap) Come, M4A1.
Let's go back together...

RO635 You're not bringing anyone with you today, Mastermind...

Mastermind ...
Explosives?

RO635 Everyone, fire!

M16A1 Grenade!

Negev Ahahaha! Run, midget! Let's see how far you can run!

...

Mastermind How are you lot up again?

RO635 This device is prepared for you, Mastermind...
More specifically, for neutralizing the jammer on you!

Mastermind That won't last very long.

RO635 I don't need very long...

M4 SOPMOD II RO! I've got M4!

Mastermind ...!

RO635 Good! Retreat! Get to the air-raid shelter!

Mastermind You...!

Skorpion Guys! Smoke grenades, now!

FF FNC FF FN49, shut the door!

...A dull thud.

Mastermind ...
Weapon... Where's my weapon?

Dreamer Don't you remember, Master, that you'd decided against bringing a weapon?
That's why I've allocated part of my troops to you.

Mastermind ...
Then can you come?
They've barricaded themselves behind a big iron door. I can't get in.

Dreamer Ah... An "air-raid shelter", isn't it?
I'm afraid my hands are tied, too. My troops are being held down by that human commander.

Mastermind ...
You really aren't as useful as Agent...

Dreamer Heheh... Things don't always go your way, you see...
So should we withdraw, Master?

Mastermind ...
I'll be waiting outside. Come pick me up.

...20 minutes later, Dreamer's troops suddenly withdraw from the battlefield.
...15 minutes later, evacuation of the detention center is almost complete.

m45 Ah, Miss M16.

M16A1 How's your injury, m45?

m45 I'm fine after undergoing emergency repairs...
Are you here to check on Miss M4?

M16A1 Yeah...
What's her condition?

m45 ...

m45 I'm sorry, but it's not looking good...
Miss M4A1 has been in this state for a while...
Muttering to herself, not communicating with anyone else...

M16A1 ...
M4...
What the hell did that chit do to you...

m45 What do we do now, Miss M16?

M16A1 ...

M16A1 Let's get her onto the conveyer with the other injured first...
The commander has already laid down the plan for retreat. We need to leave as soon as possible.

m45 Oh? Is the commander coming?

M16A1 Already here, in fact.
Sangvis Ferri has destroyed our power source and communication system, so Helian has given the commander special authorization to come and inspect the situation first.
The commander is currently on the way to the garden on the first floor to get some information from RO.

m45 RO635... The new T-Doll...?

M16A1 Yeah... They should've met each other by now.

Meanwhile, 1/F.
...After giving the order for all T-Dolls to retreat, I push open the door leading to the garden.
...

RO635 Hush...
Sorry, it took a while to coax SOPII to sleep. You wouldn't want her to disturb us, would you?
Allow me to introduce myself again. I am Tactical Doll RO635 from 16LAB.
I'm sure you want answers to a lot of questions.
But first, I must make it clear that I'm only here to assist you on Persica's personal request. If possible, please do not inform HQ of my involvement.
You don't have to worry about M4 for now either. Persica is doing everything she can to solve the problem.
Before a solution can be found, I'll be taking her place in leading the AR Team to investigate Sangvis Ferri...

RO635 On another note, the Ringleader who invaded the detention center and caused this tragedy...
...Has been confirmed to be none other than the highest being in command of Sangvis Ferri, a T-Doll designated "Mastermind".
...Surely you know what this means?

RO635 Please be prepared, Commander.
We're about the settle the score with S.F. for good...
