Noin wiped the soot and
ash off her face, cursing the demonic Gundam and its pilot for all she was
worth. "Balls... the kid has balls. Walking that monster onto the base like he
was on a Sunday stroll, blasting music out of the speakers, then calmly naming
each building ninety seconds before he blew it up." Cursing again, she palmed
open the door to her quaters, then jumped as the same music the pilot had
blasted out over his speakers started up in her room.

really hated to do that to you, since I'm sure you're generally a real nice lady
outside the OZ thing, but orders are orders. At least I gave you some warning
before detonating all the bombs and blowing the hangar to bits. Oh, and don't
let that get out-- I'd hate for my reputation to suffer. You know, people would
start to think I'm a push over, a bleeding heart, a nice guy... warning my
enemies and all that. Besides, I owed you for helping out Heero and Trowa, even
if it was only because the Blond Bombshell told you to. They're my friends, and
losing them would have really sucked... not to mention it would have pissed me
off, which is not a good thing. So, thanks.
Since you helped my friends,
I warned you before making things go BOOM. Does that make us

Maxwell, we'll be even the day I blow up your Gundam the way you keep blowing up
my suits! Trust me, nothing I say will or do could possibly sully *your*
reputation. You don't *have* one! Even if I tried to say nice things about you--
and I don't plan to-- people would just assume that I'd lost my mind and they'd
lock me up. I've never done a favour for you, so I sure as hell don't need you
to do any favours for me! Anything I may or may not have done for Lt.Col.
Merquise is a matter between him and me and none of your business.
same goes for my hypothetical private life. Not that I have the time for one,
with insane Gundam pilots who like weird music busting in at all hours to trash
whichever base I happen to be on!
P.S. And if you ever call
me 'Lu' in public, or to my face, I will hunt you down without
