Last time. . .
It was at Sokolov's door when Masaru realized what had happened. They had lost over 20 men. And Sokolov let into Masaru about it, the young man never seeing Sokolov this way before in his career. It was a man who had messed with Masaru and Yuki earlier, who had clued Sokolov in about how many lives were lost. Needless to say, Sokolov wanted to punish Masaru with his life, but had resisted shooting the gun.
When the duo returned, Yuki's ankle was in very bad shape, so Masaru searched around, after putting Yuki up on a table, and finally thought to go to the Quarter-Master's room. Masaru spoke with Marcus briefly about what had happened on the mission, the older man let Masaru know of how tight nit everyone was in the Twisted Runners, and how Sokolov worked hard to get the numbers to 100. Afterwards, Masaru came back to Yuki with clean bandages and alcohol. Yuki took the unlabeled bottle, and drank alot of the contents. Masaru used the rest to clean her wound and wrap her ankle up. The two went to the barracks,a and went to sleep for the night.
Masaru and Yuki were in some hot water with Sokolov. Masaru took the brunt of it, from glares, gossip. The man only finally realizing why everyone was so on edge with him, after a young man in the middle of the night came to him, hitting the bunk bed a few times, to then grabbing him and pinning him to the wall. Masaru heard the painful words "You killed my brother!!" from the man before he left. Earlier, Yuki asked Masaru to go with her to pick up a package, as Masaru begged Yuki to stay, to try and appease Sokolov. Since Masaru felt he couldn't go back to sleep, at 3am in the morning, he carried Yuki to one of the jeeps, and drove off toward the city where a particular dreadful bar was located. The two made it to the small town in no time flat. Masaru again carried Yuki, and walked through the night, down the street. That was a major mistake. It just so happened that a patrol was headed their way, the duo being recognized as the description of the criminals that the patrol was told to watch out for; a woman with a wounded leg, and a man. The two fit perfectly, and were almost jailed. But with Masaru and Yuki's acting ending up being a total dud, Yuki passed out some cash, 7,000 credits to the patrol to be set free. It worked, and the two decided that even though it hurt like a bitch, Yuki was able to walk on her wounded ankle to avoid any further detection.
(Giving someone else a chance to write their version of the story if they want to. It not I will continue later!)
