"At midnight on Sunday, troops from our secret training camps in three locations outside the three largest cities on Deanna – Atro City, San Fedora, and Fortitude, will break camp and board convoys of closed cargo trucks bound by road for those cities. Alpha Base's troops – designated Force 'A', will arrive at these four warehouses in the warehouse district, where under cover of darkness, they will debark and wait for their activation signal. In the meantime, Force 'B' will take up strategic positions here in San Fedora, and Force 'C' will deploy here and here. That will be most of our troops deployed, gentlemen, around nine thousand!"

"That's going to be a huge logistical exercise!" One of the others seated at the table – who happened to be Michael Francis – remarked.

"Oh yes!" Clayne agreed, looking up at them. "Hyuge!"

As usual, her hair and make-up were perfect.

As for Marla, she wasn't out to impress anybody, and had on her favorite pair of jeans, ankle-boots, and a dark red v-neck vest she liked because it appealed to her inner darkness. Her short brown hair was tousled, and her sunglasses were on top of her head, as usual. She hadn't any make-up on – which is probably why Danielle had a fit of giggles earlier and told her she looked like a dyke.
