A little glimpse in the hard parts of the life of an instructor:
A day in training
“Headquarters told us they were a loud and unruly bunch, but I never expected them not to show up for routine training.”
“Outright insubordinate sounds like a more accurate description for this batch. You think they send us here because of that?”
“I guess… we do have a reputation as the most talented instructors in years.”
“Sometimes I hate this entire glorifying system of the Bureau.”
“If they don’t arrive soon, I’m going out to find them.”
Keroko observed Nanoha, noticing that she had begun fidgeting.
Opening a channel she began talking in a strict voice.
“Instructor Takamachi Keroko to training group 4B. Your new instructors are on-site and wish to see you immediately at your designated training area. Immediately means ninety seconds from the end of my transmission. No one will be punished for arriving in dirty robes, formal gowns, underwear generally not meant for the gender, or bubbles and bathwater, but no one –I repeat,
one- wants to arrive late. That is all. Out."
In all fairness, they did manage to arrive within ninety seconds. All of them. True, some were dressed in casual clothing, or sleep clothing, but they were all on time.
“Good, now that we’re all here, let’s begin with the routine training.”
“You called us here for that?!” A voice from the row cried. Nanoha blinked and turned to the voice.
“Private Rohan Ekhesh, and I don’t take orders from kids! When we heard your transmission we’d thought Headquarters had finally come to get us out of this dump, and instead they sent us kids for
training? Hell no!” Murmurs and cheers of agreement were heard throughout the group.
Nanoha and Keroko shared a glance, and sighed. “
You know, if you think you’re ready for the real job, you’re mistaken. So let’s start with the training, allright?”
“Didn’t you hear me? We won’t do any more of this routine training.”
“Then we will change the routine.”
Nanoha said with a smile.
“Would that work? We could start with a mock battle.”
The group blinked as their instructors took out their devices. Wait, their
took out their devices?
[Stand by, Ready!]
[Combat Mode, Active!]
*later that hour*
“Ano… is this the 4B training area?”
“Ah! You must be 4B’s former training officer.”
“Yes, but I hardly recognise them.”
“They’re just a bit dirty, nothing that a good shower won’t clean.”
The former instructor let her eyes roam over the non-moving bodies of what she remembered as the loudest, most insubordinate team she ever saw. “A-Are you still busy?”
“No, we were actually about finished. Minna?”
With a loud rumble and a cloud of dust, 4B Stood in a straight formation at attention.
“Today’s training is over. Come back here tomorrow and we’ll pick up where we left of when this day started.”
Nanoha told them with a smile.
Snapping to attention, the group saluted with a loud “ARIGATO GOZAIMASHITA!” and turned around, leaving the training area with nervous speed.
The former training officer gaped in amazement. “H-how! Just yesterday they were refusing to even stand in formation, much less show respect! How did you do this much in one day!”
Nanoha and Keroko blinked and looked at each other for a moment before they turned to the former training officer and smiled.
For some reason the former training officer lost the urge to press for details.
