[For a second or two, Guo Jia regards the screen levelly. His bearing then shifts into one far more casual, and when he speaks his tone is deceptively light.]

Prepare for the rain, so not a single drop shall leak through: I give care to all things, on Lord Cao Cao's behalf.

Yet this... this was not a raindrop, but rather a flash flood. How swiftly it came upon me, unforeseen! Now that I've been forcibly swept far from where I am meant to be, what care can I give?

My task passes into the hands of my shixiong.

Hoo.

[He smiles, shallow and breezy.]

What an impressive display, though. Who would have thought that such extraordinary powers existed? With the promise of much more to come, no less!

[He lifts a hand to his face, cupping his chin in a habitual gesture. A trace of irritation colours his voice.]

Don't misunderstand me: I'm angry that I was abducted from my post at such a crucial time. [He briefly taps his finger against his lips, and the annoyance in his tone dissipates.] However, I also hate inefficiency, so I've decided to contribute to this war effort for the time being.

[A moment's pause, then:]

I do have one request to make. I'd like to speak with someone taken from a less technologically advanced land, so long as they have lived here in Death City for a reasonable stretch of time. Say, at least a month? Long enough to have settled in fairly well.

Surely that is not much to ask.

That's BREW for you. The more inconvenient your arrival the better.

So what's all this jazz about rain and Lord What'shisface?

Only that I take my employment very seriously.

It really is a nail in the eye; after years of patience, things were about to fall into place.

Dare I ask what things?

Plans of varying sorts, aimed at the same goal: my lord's victory in a large military campaign. Since my lord's name means nothing to you, I would hate to bore you with the details.

Mmmm. One of those "my gun is bigger than your gun' sort of things.

Anyway, you brought it up. I was only making conversation.

There's much more interesting conversation than the balance of power in a land that holds no relevance to you -- no insult was meant.

Incidentally, what precisely is a 'gun'?

None taken.

So no guns, huh? They've been around for awhile too. Alright, well, think of a hand held weapon that shoots...hm, how would I put this? That shoots a small metal cylinder with a pointed end out of a barrel when the trigger is pulled.

[That probably made no sense whatsoever. Faye exhales into her bangs as she thinks.] You know, it would probably be easier to see one in action.

[He looks intrigued by the concept, at least.]

I agree. Are you offering a demonstration?

Maybe. I haven't decided yet.

Hahaha, it seems that I'm at your mercy.

Now don't tell me that~ I might try to take advantage.
