“With high expectations, human beings leave Earth to begin a new life in space colonies. However, the United Earth Sphere Alliance gains great military powers, and soon seizes control of one colony after another in the name of Justice and Peace. The year is After Colony 195. Operation Meteor. In a move to counter the Alliance's tyranny, rebel citizens of certain colonies scheme to bring new arsenals to the Earth, disguising them as shooting stars. However, the Alliance headquarters catches onto this operation…”

Just wild beat communication
While being pounded by rain
I want to express this unfading passion
with my entire body, tonight!

****

I held your
damp shoulders to warm you.
Your fingers tremble;
what are they seeking?

****

Even if it's in broken speech,
I want you to tell me your pain.
Pretending that the pain's worn off
doesn't make you an adult.

****

I want to protect that look in your eyes
Believe in the love
that can change sadness to strength.

****

Just wild beat communication
Don't be afraid of anything.
Because noone's going to take away
our shared feelings of now.

****

Just wild beat communication
While being pounded by rain
I want to express this unfading passion
with my entire body, tonight!

Faith sat in the mess hall next to Rodney laughing along fallaciously with the others at one of his bad jokes.

It scared her sometimes; how easily she fit in and found a life in a time and world not her own. Of course she hit more bumps along the way then the others and more often then not she could be found doing extra duties or, in extreme instances, in solitary confinement. She couldn’t help it though, a Slayer was meant to work alone and die alone. Playing for the team was a whole new concept for her and, if she was honest, she wasn’t sure she liked it.

No, she didn’t like it but she found she could and, more recently, would do it.

Her first friend had been Rodney. Rodney was a pudgy kid from one of the aristocratic families, well almost all of them were, and he had gotten poor levels of training before coming to the ‘Specials Military Academy’ at Lake Victoria. In fact he was worse then her with a gun; at least when she fired her weapon it went within a few feet of her target. When Rodney fired he was always way off in a way that made her wonder how he had accomplished it.

Now, after two years of training, it was almost time for graduation. This fact lead to her groups little breakfast party in the mess hall at around 1100 hours. They weren’t the top of their class, which she was sure Une would lecture over for later, but it was known that they were Lt. Noin’s favorites. Noin didn’t show this favoritism obviously but Faith could see the little tells she had.

This being said they were far from the bottom of the class and so they were all sure to get good postings when they entered the Specials forces. It was while they were sitting and laughing that Faith heard something. At first she thought it was just one of the instructors radios turned up loud but as she got closer, after excusing herself to investigate, she realized that the base was getting orders from the main headquarters.

“… stand down. Lt. Zechs has taken care of the problem for now.”

“Understood.” That was Noin and she sounded anything but understanding about what she was being told to do. The tightness of her voice told Faith that much. With a sigh Noin turned off the radio and said;

“I know you’re there. You can come out.” Faith cursed to herself. In her time no one could tell when a Slayer was spying on them unless they were another Slayer or a powerful demon. In Faith’s defense though Noin hadn’t always been able to tell when she was lurking; at first Noin couldn’t tell at all. The reason Noin could now? Well it was either she has improved her senses or has gotten used to Faith’s personality. Faith sure had no clue.

“Hey, I was just passing by.” Faith moved into the doorway and stood with her head down. In learning here she had quickly learned humbleness was more appreciated then her normal hasty and defiant nature. Oddly they still encouraged her to be proud but to be proud about being part of the ‘machine’ that was the Specials.

“The areas you’d be headed for are all in the other direction cadet.” Faith winced at her clipped tone and answered;

“Yeah, extra kitchen duty today. Got’cha!” She saluted and started walking away only to be stopped by a hand on her shoulder.

“Yes, ma’am?”

“I’m sure Treize would want you to know.” The way she said that made Faith feel nervous. What was going on that even a shoulder training facility would get a warning from the higher ups. Faith knew the only place that had a reason to try and start something were the colonies. There were serious issues between the earth and colonies but seriously what would they do? Then her memory went back to that boy she had met on the L2 colony. Yet, as a whole, the colonies were weak, pathetic, and peace minded.

“This morning five meteors were seen heading for earth.” Faith cut her off with a scoff, meteors; they were all worked up over meteors. Faith quickly straightened at the reprimanding look on Noin’s face and inwardly cursed for cutting her off. Faith really didn’t want anymore punishments today.

“This is what the public will hear. In truth they were five manned spacecrafts sent by the colonies. It’s called ‘Operation Meteor’…. Now get to work! On top of extra kitchen duty you have to run the obstacle course ten times.” Faith inwardly groaned while she left. At least she wasn’t being sent into solitary again.

AN: Faith has been treated as any other soldier for the most part. Any special treatment she might have gotten was due to Treize more then anything else. In fact the Treize connection is the only reason she was told anything about what she over heard. It was also kind of a moot point as the rest of the soldiers would be informed about this soon enough. She just got it first and before she needed to know.
