    Re: Hidden Danger (Ranger Princess)

    On the other side were two soliders, though their uniforms were quite ruffled and not exactly presentable. Both had their weapons trained in her direction, but quickly lowered them when she appeared harmless. "Well well, what do we have here? You lost, girly? This is a very dangerous place, you know. Maybe we should take you back to our camp and keep you safe." The man's tone definitely came off as "slimeball", but he wasn't exactly threatening. Behind her Violeta could hear the kid shifting around, but it was quiet enough that it was doubtful the men could hear him.

      Violeta wasn't quite sure what she was expecting to find in that room, but when she saw it was soldiers, she gave a mental sigh of relief. On the outside, she used her dance and theater training to keep up her look of confident charm. If the soldiers were very observant, they might have noticed the slightest flicker of relief flash across her face.

      When the soldier addressed her, Violeta smiled, her brow furrowing somewhat playfully with a hint of fire appearing in her eyes. "Hey now. I'll have you know this girly just bashed a freaky monster's face in." Violeta gestured to her staff and beamed radiantly, genuinely proud of that feat. "I'm so glad I found you guys though. I really wanna fight back against the monsters." Violeta paused for a moment, trying to suppress the disgust she was feeling. "You don't have to take me back to base. You're probably on a mission right? I can help." The look in her eyes showed that she really believed it, that she could help at least.

        The soliders glanced at eachother, clearly not quite sure what to think of Violeta. "Well, we're just looking around, mainly for survivors. We should probably take you right back, though I guess it wouldn't hurt to finish up this block, it seems deserted." For being military, the pair seemed rather disorganized.

        The one not talking had went back to idlely digging through the rubble. "Man, there's nothing here, let's just go back." The other signed and turned, revealing him to be a higher rank by his insignia. "We should find the dairy store first, get the stuff before it spoils..." The lower ranked solider simply scowled and walked out the back door into the alley. Rolling his eyes, the remaining solider motioned for Violeta to follow and headed out back too.

          Violeta leaned on her staff in front of her as she talked with the soldier, flexing her calves and rocking up and down on the balls of her feet. She was hoping all along to find a group she could team up with to start a resistance, but she wasn't really sure if she would find anyone. Finding people so soon was exciting. Just enough to build some hope in her, warming her heart a little. <If all these people are still around we have to have a chance...> But still... Violeta frowned to herself in thought, <Milk errands? What is this, the grocery squad? Captain Cream and Major Milk? I guess we need supplies for survivors, but shouldn't we be fighting back?>

          Violeta was still lost in thought when the soldier motioned for her to follow. She started following them, almost out the door when she froze in her tracks. Suddenly, it hit her that the boy might be still keeping watch for her. She was angry at him for abandoning her at the first sign of trouble, but she was sure she could still hear him moving around before. <Ugh...we can't just leave him to the monsters. And the soldiers are looking for survivors anyway right? Maybe they can protect him...> Violeta leaned out the door and called out softly to the soldiers, "Hey wait! There was a teenage boy with me keeping watch outside for any monsters. You're looking for survivors right? We should go back for him..." Violeta eagerly waved for them to follow and started to head for the front of the store.

            The soldiers stopped and turned around. "Huh? Oh really?" The more mature man quickly walked out front, scanning the area with a faint hint of nervousness. "I don't see anyone out here..." He looked back to Violeta quizzically. "Eh, maybe he got spooked and ran off." Unfortunate, but at least the man didn't think she had lied or anything like that, though the other was getting impatient.

            "Just forget it man, lets keep going." He could be heard forcing open another door outside, then tripping over whatever mess was on the other side, letting out a small curse. "Man, why can't we just go back no, there's just useless junk here!"

            The patient man sighed. "Well, do you want to wait on us to search, or head back to our camp now?" His tone of voice indicated he was looking for an easy way out of the situation, without having to argue with the other solider.

              Violeta quickly followed Captain Cream and Major Milk outside. When they got outside the door, she eagerly looked around. But realizing the boy was gone, her face fell and she slumped her shoulders. <I didn't mean to leave him behind...but maybe he didn't like the soldiers anyway.> As Violeta started to follow the soldiers away, she kept glancing around trying to see if she could see any sign of the boy.

              She practically jumped when the other soldier crashed over something past a door. She looked concerned for a moment then stood looking at the higher ranking soldier as he addressed her. She thought to herself for a moment, running her whole hand through her hair. <Captain Cream over there is going to get us killed if he keeps this up. I guess his cream got all curled and moldy? What a whiney brat.> With her hand still laced through her hair, she gave Major Milk a small smile. "You're in charge so you probably know best right?" Violeta sighed and looked around one last time, hoping she would see the boy. "I'll follow you whatever you decide." Violeta hesitated for a moment, "But I still want to help, and your on a mission right? If one of you guys is tired, I can use your flashlight and look around for any survivors as we go...That is if its okay with you" Violeta adjusted her sack on her shoulder and did her best to look capable, smiling sweetly all the while.

                The officer glanced towards where the other had disappeared, then back to Violeta, a few times over, milling over the decision as she looked around for the kid. There were a few signs of movement, but it may have just been her eyes playing tricks on her, and the man didn't seem to notice. Eventually he spoke again. "Eh, c'mon, let's just go back. We can search more later." He turned and headed out into a side street, popping his head in the door to yell at the other again, just to be sure. He didn't hand over the flashlight, though didn't comment on Violeta's suggestion, more distracted then anything.

                The small group lead Violeta in roughly the same direction as she had been heading, though down a path that was much more rubble strewn and dangerous looking then she would have picked herself. The soldiers streamed the flashlights back and forth over any potential hiding spots as they slowly walked. They seemed to be pretty security conscience, despite bumbling earlier, but something still didn't feel right...

                  Violeta nodded tentatively at the military man's words. She expected him to want to go back after all, but she froze, staring incredulously as he turned and walked away . . . totally ignoring her question! Violeta's fingers clenched on her staff, and she let out a small "ugh" under her breath, unlikely heard due to the soldier's distraction. The young woman had about her fill with men being stubborn and ignorant lately. Perhaps she was biased because of her work at the dance clubs. Regardless, Violeta was seriously starting to wonder if she really was from another planet, Venus the ancestral home of women. She looked up at the sky for a moment with a sort of odd longing expression in her eyes before grinding her teeth and pursing her lips tightly to capture any more displeasured noises trying to escape her lips, grumpily walking after the soldier. <I hate men..> Any other time, she might have given an apologetic look to where she thought she saw movement. But she was in no mood for any more male shenanigans and instead just quickened her pace to catch up to the soldiers as they started down the street.

                  Violeta walked with the soldiers down the rubble strewn path, following closely just behind them. Her frustration from before simmered, and she started to relish the feeling of protection. Her emotions were running high ever since she got couped up in the basement, and she started to realize how nice it felt to have someone watching out for her . . . even if it was a pair of frustrating dairy soldiers. As they kept walking down the path, Violeta glanced over her shoulder every once in a while to make sure there wasn't anything behind them. She was starting to feel more and more like they were being watched and made sure not to fall behind the soldiers. Violeta couldn't see much so far, but it bothered her that the soldiers didn't seem to be looking behind them. A ball of dread starting to creep into her throat, she took it upon herself to keep track of what was going on behind the group for them. Something just didn't seem right about this path. <Well of course it doesn't seem right! There's creepy monsters running about and the sky is orange!> Violeta shuddered, a few pesky shivers running down her arms. This feeling had to be her imagination right...?

                  Violeta remained silent, not having spoken a word since their last conversation. She focused all of her attentions on what was going on behind them, her eyes darting about their surroundings.
