            Damn…

            That was all I could think of. Four hours.

            Four hours later, and the ship would launch. Four hours later would see most of an end to my shore leave. Back to soldiering. Back to…stuff. How was I supposed to do this in four hours?

            The cold metal wall helped to bring me back to reality. Better to be in a well-lit and comfortable room than a spooky prison hallway. Better with the girl than without. Bios, check. Now.

            I rose from sagging against the wall console and actually turned it on. By pressing a button on its top left corner, it whirred back to life and displayed the normal screen that I always saw: An option menu. I touched the screen for 'biography' and it displayed a new screen. Here there were personal details about the girl inside; apparently they couldn't get all the information from each girl's possessions, so further information was gathered from their bodies.

            This biography I knew well enough:

~Captured during raid on (magic) hydroponics station 4 years ago. Parents showed signs of magic usage, so she was immediately sealed upon processing. She has never shown signs of magical knowledge or usage.

            This girl was in cell 7—one of the girls I had seen before on previous visits. Shall I choose her this time…I wondered. Moving on. On the opposite side was cell 1.

           Also another girl I saw before. Maybe I should take my time with her…Next cell. Cell 2. And a similar girl.

            Mmmm. This hair…interesting. Was that a biologically cultivated trait? Biological modification? And…she had potential. Hmmm. Cell 4.

Miscellaneous: "recycled around"
~ Picked up from Yggdrasil academic facility on Aldor V, along with miscellaneous loot. See Lootbox 5a.
~Considerable magic—extra blocker required.

            Oh? I took a look in her cell. Black hair, fair skin; oddly, she reminded me of some sort of baby animal, the way she cuddled with her big teddy bear. It was cute in a pillowy kind of way. Tsun-poi?

            Ooh. Yggdrasil. Not bad for a girl of her caliber. And her hair seemed like it was flammable—was that also biologically engineered? Hmm, what a taker…Cell 10.

            12 years old? Dang, she was starting to get a rack already. Even cuter, she was curled up, and staring at the door with wide-open eyes. Her?

            Wow. 9 years old and using magic? How did (he) get a hold of a girl this young? Cell 11.

            (He) actually wrote that she was a timid snowflake. I took a look at her. Her look definitely suggested that she was—she looked even more delicate than the other girls. Mmmhm. My little precious. Cell 6.

Miscellaneous:  "GORGEOUS"
~

            Wow. (He) outdid himself again. This time…to actually write "GORGEOUS" is just…my hat is off to you, sir. I don't know how you do it, but keep it up. Another young pearl—and she had potential too.

            There was no need for Cell 12. (He) typically reserved it for any "pearl" he found along the way, or any "pearl" he also wanted along. If it had been occupied, I would have checked it out first.

            Ahh…it's done. So many girls with potential…and there was that one Yggdrasil girl with surprising potential. Maybe I should go with her before my time here ends…Sure. I walked back over to Cell 4 and looked at her again. Mmmm. She was nice too. Pity she wasn't anything like the girl I was looking for. But that hair, that body…I guess I could make do with her. It's not every day you get to see a Yggdrasil girl. Oh, I could just picture it, her in her natural environment—a school dormitory. She would be on the bed…and the rest would be history. Her boobs as a pillow for study time in her dorm…paradise. Top marks, I could feel it. Well…did she have boobs? I can't see…

            Where exactly did (he) pick a Yggdrasil girl up from? Hmm…apparently not the main campus. I thought as much—a main campus would have too much security, and public attention. Let's see…

            I took a look at her bio. Hmm, hmm…hmm, what?

~Picked up from Yggdrasil academic facility on Aldor V, along with miscellaneous loot. See Lootbox 5a.

            No way. Picked up from Aldor V? I had to crumble with disbelief at that. I looked back at her teddy bear pillow, which couldn't have looked cuter. I wouldn't be surprised if it started growing claws. Yggdrasil. Aldor V?

            From my limited knowledge as a soldier, Aldor V was a supposed confidential testing area for certain magic academies. Ostentatiously, it was also a research and vacation spot for magic students, that served its purpose during summer and winter breaks, and occasionally helped students out with research during the school year. Students apparently had to petition for research assistance on the planet. And only select elite students would get approved. So…was she the vacation type, sightseeing an academic facility? Or…the hardcore, research expert? Given her magic potential, and her schooling, either seemed both attractive and unappealing.

            And there were those rumors too, huh? Those rumors dated back to the Second Horizon War. Intelligence reports suggested an abnormal spending in emergency aid and repair efforts on the planet, several times over the duration of the war. Especially in explosion countermeasures. The guys in Intelligence still comment on Aldor V now and then like it was a weapons range…Weapons range. As in testing of weaponry, potentially explosives. But since it's magic, it would be spells? Or worse—people keep saying that sometimes, magic users can blow themselves up if they draw too much magic. Like living landmines. I stared at this girl hard. Dang…she's still too cute. Tsun-poi. Especially with the teddy bear—grow claws or something, you! Give me a sense of normalcy!

            So…did I go with her? I stared at my hands. Magic hands…I recalled what I had mentioned to (him). Magic hands…I stared at her again. Or living landmine? I shivered. It feels like I'm trying to disarm a landmine. And trying to claim the pearl underneath it. But…but she seems so cute. Tsun-poi?

            Aaaagh, not that again!

            But really…she seemed like it. Totally tsun-poi.

            Mmhmm. Tsun-poi. I guess I had no other choice then. I'll go with her. I grinned to myself. Disarming a landmine should be simple, once you find it.

            …What if I was trying my best just to avoid the landmine, and it exploded?
