"Okay, my young pupil, are you ready to begin your training?"
Ayrene giggles in anticipation and nods. Kasumi gives a sly smile, "Good, aoi kaze. The first lesson is to be as silent as possible....that means no giggling (*wink*)"
Ayrene tries to keep a straight face, but lapses back to giggling. Kasumi tickles her, "If you alert the target, you've already lost."
Kasumi looks out across the yard to where Liara and Kaycee sit together on the porch resting. Liara sleeps soundly in Shepard's arms. Kasumi turns back to Ayrene. "Okay, let's go over the list.....master thief? Check. Loyal apprentice?" Ayrene gives her a big smile. "Close enough. Finally, the water balloons?"
Ayrene pats the tub of water balloons next to them. "Check!!"
Kasumi turns back to the target. "Okay you know what to do?"
Ayrene nods as Kasumi picks up two balloons. "Remember, we'll have only a few seconds to get off as many before they start running."
A voice sounds from behind them "And what pray tell are you two up to?" Ayrene jumps about a foot in the air in surprise. Garrus stands there nonchalantly, arms folded.
Kasumi gives him a winning smile from beneath her hood. "Care to help in the operation?"
"You mean drench Kaycee and Liara with water balloons? That's a horrible thought Kasumi, you'll never be able to pull it off." Ayrene frowns at this. "That is......without me. I'll show you how its done."
Ayrene brightens and rushes to him with a big hug that doesn't reach past his knees. He pats her head affectionally. "Here's how we'll do it."
Several giggling fits later, the operation commences. Kasumi sits perched on the roof cloaked, the bag of water balloons being held aloft by Ayrene's biotics. Garrus stands in the treeline, rifle in hand. "Blue, when i say now, i want you to start letting them fall, ok?"
"Kasumi are we in position?"
"Ready as we'll ever be Garrus."
He takes a deep breath and aims through the scope. ".................go"
"aoi kaze" is japanese for "blue wind"
