    She laughs nervously after this, only emphasizing her last statement.

    "...so, uh, anyway, is this the same guy from our first cookie-baking session, or are you more popular than I thought?"

    “No it’s the same guy. He seemed rather sweet but I don’t think he was aware I wasn’t human...which I suppose is a good thing since I don’t appear cold and emotionless. He would still be disappointed since coitus would be impossible.”

    "Ah right, that guy... he might be sad about that missed opportunity still, for all we know, but at least he proved that you don't seem artificial. Would've been awkward if he found out about it, though, so... probably for the best that you didn't have any contact info at that point."

    “Now that I think about it...technically since you have a body that means you’ll need security. I mean...as long as they do not invade your privacy.”

    Ventus Prime wrote:“Now that I think about it...technically since you have a body that means you’ll need security. I mean...as long as they do not invade your privacy.”

    That was true. She was a lot more vulnerable with this body, and while she didn't know of anyone who would want to harm her (well, other than that guy at the arcade), the risk is unfortunately always there. Who wouldn't want an AI under their control?

    "...sadly, you're not wrong. I wish I didn't have to worry about that, but in my position, there are going to be people who want me either destroyed or used for their own purposes. The security we've had so far has been good enough, but with this new body... I might need some more..."

    “Hmm...perhaps the Elder may have people who can do that? I mean, I can help be part of your security but I am supposed to merely be an ambassador....which means I need security too.”

    She thought for a moment before an idea came to her. “And I think I know who to ask...”

    "Well, me and the Elders do have various proposals for new security measures, which could come in handy..."

    Heidrun put this aside, however, once Penny mentioned that she seemingly had an idea of her own.

    "Hey, it's worth a shot. Things are only gonna get tougher from here on out."

    Two days later...

    Shion couldn’t believe her luck. Just days ago she was about to be deployed onto the frontlines against a combined force of Imperials and Sistonians, only to be notified that the former retreated and the latter called out for a ceasefire. And then, right after that, she’s told that she’ll be working as security for the Ambassador for Bucksden...which wouldn’t be bad except the current ambassador is quite capable of protecting herself.

    Well, this is what getting back into the military does for you, and apparently she wouldn’t be alone. There was another girl with her on the shuttle they were currently on. She seemed to keep mostly to herself, which was fine. Shion wasn’t necessarily a casual speaker either.

    Still, if they were gonna work together they might as well get to know each other. “I see you carry a sword,” Shion said. “Army, I presume?”

    The girl, who had long, strawberry blonde hair tied back, looked back to her. “Former member of Twilight Company. Now I serve under Chief of State Schnee as a potential Ace Ops member. You’re Sinon Asada, right? Of the Nightwalkers?”

    Sinon smiled. “Guess I have a bigger reputation than I thought.”

    “Are you kidding? You’re practically a legend, going all the way back to the Kapteynian War. And then of course there was that time you took on that Kunkengan android-” She then stopped and blushed. “Sorry...I didn’t even introduce myself. I’m Asuna Yuuki.”

    The name caught Sinon by surprise. “Your family originate from Japan?”

    “Yeah...I don’t like to mention it but the Yuuki family, even now, has been a rather wealthy family...though I’m not one to sit around in mansions and have servants.”

    “I respect that...I’m from Japan as well, my family that is. Least we have one thing in common. And considering we’re returning to Earth.”

    “Yeah, the thought has crossed my mind...but we have our orders.”

    “Yeah, yeah...hopefully things won’t be too boring in Bucksden...”

    Heidrun put this aside, however, once Penny mentioned that she seemingly had an idea of her own.

    Two days have passed since Penny and Heidi returned to Bucksden. Everything has for the most part returned to normal. As it was approaching noon, there was then a knock at the door.

    Heidrun was reading a book when she heard the knock. She'd been curious about when these folks Penny had asked would show up, although she hadn't thought about it much after that initial shuttle trip, but that interest resurfaced now that there were visitors at the door. She was the closest person, anyway, so she wouldn't have to wait to find out.

    Putting down her book, she walked up and opened the door, ideally revealing whoever knocked. Still had to watch out for the possibility of pranksters, though.

    There were two women standing there, both looked to be in their late twenties or early thirties. “Are you Heidi?” the woman with short hair asked. “I’m Sergeant Sinon Asada and this is Specialist Asuna Yuuki. We’ve been assigned as your security-”

    “Salutations!” Penny suddenly showed up with a plateful of cookies. “You made it! Heidi, we can finally do more than bake cookies! Please, take one!”

    The two women looked at one another before taking one and eating them. The sudden surprise on their face told the two robotic girls just how far Penny came in her baking.
