"Why is it that when you're around there's bound to be commotion? Unless you're really like Stardust says, a masochist." Jun smirked, which Polaris thought was rather odd, as Jun struck her as entirely to good-tempered to smirk. Then again, Polaris had known Jun for a full two days, at most, and Polaris wasn't about to start thinking she knew the girl.
And Gone was lying on the floor, staring up at her like a smiling idiot. And Stardust and Xu were going nuts, and the new guy in the body armor was smiling to himself like this was a comedy movie he was enjoying.
<Oh, ta, what dysfunction to be had!>
And once again, Polaris felt the inclination to play the mother. Or peacemaker. Or something that involved preventing Gone Vacc from being maimed by the almighty deadly duo known as Sanaku & Infinity.
"Okay, Gone, up you get." Polaris strode up beside Jun and grabbed a fistful of Gone's shirt, hauling him to his feet. "You've already made Xu huffy." Of course, at her comment, Xu looked even more pissed, but Polaris chose to ignore the death glare. She gave Gone a smile made of sugar and arsenic. "Let's save the incredibly kinky S&M games with Blaze and Stardust when we're all on the ship, yes? I hardly believe that the Headmistress' office is the perfect place for such perversion."
She shifted her gaze from Gone and met Xu's eyes.
"Blaze had a question about the location of the Ruby, Headmistress, before Gone so kindly and lovingly interrupted her. Would you please answer it so we can get out of your hair like you so dearly wish us to be?"
"Very well, Miss Lyn." Xu replied with a smile so tight that you expect her mouth to burst at the seams any second now. "In regard to your question, Miss Sanaku..." Xu said, her frown starting to break through into the smile. "I can only say the research team has been unable to pinpoint the exact location. And to trust your instincts. But as rare gems go, you can expect the Ruby to be guarded by some kind of tight security, so have that as your guide when you're searching for it." Xu sighed heavily. "As I said, good luck to you, SeeDs. And hope your instincts and experience serve you well."
Sho thought that if the team didn't move out in the next half of a nanosecond, someone was going to get shot repeatedly, courtesy of Headmistress Xu. He cleared his throat.
"I think that's our cue to leave, people." And without waiting for affirmation from his team members, Sho quickly and easily shoved them out of the room and closed the office door behind them. Listening intently for the sound of Xu throwing things against the wall, Sho was relieved to hear silence...at least on that side of the room. Now all he had to worry about was the bitching that would be done by the two yowling kittens he called teammates: Psychochick the Pink and Manner-less Midget. You know which midget...the ugly one, with the red vest.
