Tired of Waiting

While everything was happening around them, Corinna was working a lot with Sheska, showing her the ins and outs of computers, starting with simple stuff, but quickly working at a much higher level, since Sheska was quick to catch on. Damn it, pretty soon, she'd be working with her on stuff she herself was working with. But, something kept bugging her. She felt like she was caught in a whirlwind, and she was only watching everything happen. It didn't sit well with her that the fate of the world was very likely on the line, and she was relegated to barely being on the sidelines, much more like a spectator then anything. She had come along to help, but she was just a wallflower, for as much input as she had. Everyone already knew what was going on, and she was just unimportant enough that it made her feel like, well, a child.

Finally, she made up her mind, and approached Morkoth after he had spoken with Anna and Brian, all these things weighing heavily on her thoughts. "Excuse me...I'm the one who came with Winry and Sheska. You seem to be...the one in charge, right?"

Where are they now?: Lachance

DATE: Tuesday, March 30, 2027
LOCATION: Colorado Springs, CO.

It was another normal Tuesday for her. She was just getting dressed for work, when her phone went off. She didn't bother checking the caller ID. "Yeah, yeah. What do ya want?"

"Nice way to greet your mother, Corinna." Came a voice from the other end.

"Hi mom. Sorry, figured it was my boss or something." She said, hopping on one foot over to the other side of her room, trying to find the missing sock.

"Tsk! You'd speak to your boss that way? I'm shocked." Disapproval dripped from her voice.

"Really? You're surprised by this? C'mon mom, don't make me laugh." She flopped down, finding the rogue foot cover.

"Not at all. Anyway, I was calling just to remind you to be home tomorrow around eight, for the dinner." She laughed

Corinna leaned over, fighting to put her shoes on. "Ah, yeah. Right. I'll be there on time, as always."

"Nine thirty, young lady, is not on time."

"Gosh, you're such a mom! It was one time!"

"Well, anyway, I'll let you go since I suppose your busy. careful okay? I have a bad feeling." The voice on the other end hesitated.

"Relax mom. Nothing's going to happen, and no one knows about my hair, okay? Trust me. Not a soul. Anyway, catch ya later!" She said, hanging up before getting a response. She flopped back on her bed for a moment, sighing up at the ceiling. "Really, nothing exciting ever happens around her. I guess that's fine, but....just once, I'd like to be a part of something. Oh well."
