Cain & Lenox

Post  Maretothebear on 1/10/2015, 9:20 pm

Based off Divergent

Lenox ran toward her home as quickly as her feet would carry her after Basic Education not wanting to waste a moment. At dawn the children in her faction of government much like in the other three factions would be rounded up and taken to be taught the ways of the large city which they were a part of. It was militant, structured, and no laws provented instructors from teaching by humiliation and punishment. Schooling would end only in time for supper and sleep. There was only one day off per week and that was only so they could work with the community. The community is who raised children. Parents had little say. The only difference today from all others in her past was today was the end of her time at home.
Lenox woke at 2am that evening by the sound of military officials at her door to escort her along with the other 200 children in her class to Stage 2 Life Assessment. From that very intrusive test they would decide where everyone fit within society. Either Military, Agriculture, Government, or Medical would be the outcome. She was terrified of what the machine might read, might decide, and with her knowledge of government she knew most of all some greeted thier new recruits better than others. Lenox walked into the large lab with rows of test seating and sat down in her chair while waiting for the test to begin.

"Lenox is it? Yes good have a seat, your test will begin shortly, you need only relax and let the machine take you." Cain told the girl sitting down in a chair that had lines and wirings running up its sides, buttons protruding from either side of the head, it had been reformatted so a human head could fit snugly in the box. Cain was poring a clear liquid in a small glass cup and walked over, handing it to her and looking down at her. "Drink it." He instructed with a firm voice of the military faction, he had already sworn in and taken his lessons and training, this being Cain's second year with his faction and he had volunteered to help with the tests.

Lenox stared up at him and then grasped the glass and looked at it warily. "Well here goes nothing" she sighed and downed it. Only mere seconds passed before she was transported into a prefit scenario. It was a field. She stood around several wounded military men. She was visually given four options. The first, run to the president and ask him to diplomatically stop the war, the second run to the abandoned farmers market and gather food to help feed the men. The third, to run around trying to bandage and save them, and the fourth to pick up a rifle and defend them from the enemy marching toward them . Without hesitation she stooped down picked up a rifle and then started bandaging each man. If an enemy got too close she shot him. Suddenly one snuck up on her and shot her through the forehead waking her with a start. Military medic was her placement. The tech snickered. "Looks like double work for you, learning military and medical" Lenox couldn't believe it.

Cain had been watching the incident unfolding and nodding in agreement with the techs assessment, military medic indeed, it wasn't uncommon for a student to pick two options but still when it happened they would take advantage of it. Printing her results and making a few copies, Cain handed one back to Lenox. "This is your copy, it will hold your results, keep them n you at all times, it is a requirement." The young lad was telling her, more often than not students forgot them and would be in grave trouble if not recovered quickly, they made the assigning of factions a lot easier and simpler I one presented the exact test score, if it really cold be considered a test.

Lenox stood up, looking at Cain nodding, "apparently i will see you around" and realized she was never going to see her parents or community again. It wasn't going to be easy moving on but as soon as she found the exit and presented her paperwork to the official she was hooded from behind and carried kicking and screaming to the bus which would take her and the other recruits to base. Of course in keeping with the hard life they were teaching this bus had no seats and blacked out windows. Each kid was cuffed and secured to the wall sitting down. Only after the doors were locked and the bus moving was her hood removed. This 2 day trip to the faction training area was going to suck.

Cain grinned a bit when the tech left, looking over Lenox's results once more, to an average eye it all seemed completely normal but Cain knew what to look for in such things, trained specifically for this task and one of the reasons he volunteered, letting the girl go and carry on her life for now but something did seem off about her test and Cain would find out just what. Copying the video to a file he set off, he was to meet the new recruits and that Lenox girl would be among them, he had to carry through with the investigation. Already being part of the military he took a faster train car to the destination, him and the others that had been with Cain.

Lenox slept most of the way to be awoken with a start at 5am on destination day. As each recruit stept off the bus they were handed a duffle bag labeled and sized for each. They were sent through locker rooms that were not seperated for either gender. Lenox's bag was labled with a red cross as was the black leather, fur insulated, bullet proof jacket she was given to wear on top of her black moisture wicking turtleneck, black and gray camo pants, and black workboots. It looked as though infantry got brown jackets. Attached to her belt were black gloves, and holster for an eventual gun. Once dressed they all marched into a warehouse looking room that had armed guard around its rim. She noted how many new medics had come through only to be surprised to find only two others. She remained as calm as possible knowing every twitch would be noted.

Cain had been standing in the warehouse, watching as the new recruits had to poor into the building carrying their duffel bags and worried looks with them. He was grinning slightly, thinking how he must have looked when he first came through two years ago, it did seemed a long time ago even though it was fairly recent Cain knew. But this would be his first time assisting with the training of new recruits and remembered how his own training went, not thinking he would have to make others endure it, but he would have too, to stay close to this Lenox.

Lenox felt watched and was so unnerved. Slowly almost imperceptibly she looked at each face around her. Most were facing the head of the room or sweeping over the entire group of recruits. "There!" She thought to herself. Cain, that officer who had overseen her test was staring directly at her. She nearly met his eyes but her attention was abruptly brought to the front by a booming male voice.
"Listen up! I am Commander Philips, I am Leader of this entire faction. You have chosen to join the most lethal of groups. That membership does not come without you being worked bloody. We will push you to your limits and farther. Be prepared to suffer. Mark and Cain, two of our finest will be the ones to oversee you. From this point forward you will wish to have chosen anything else. Cain! Mark! Lead these sorry excuses for life to thier barracks and then to endurance assessment.
Lenox swallowed hard gathering herself for the challenge ahead.

"With pleasure, Commander." Cain was quick to respond, nodding to the older man before hopping down from the stand and looking over the large group of recruits. He walked along the front line, thinking and looking over at Mark. "Right then, you half," He was saying, cutting his arm downward through the air, "follow me, the rest of ya, go with Mark." Cain started walking off, only turning back to make sure his half was following to their side of the barracks and nodded. "Not only will this be enduring it will be competitive to test your resolve against enemies and to see how well you can work with your group, Mark's group is now your enemy, remember that, the ones around you are your new family, new blood." He was explaining all this as they reached the barracks, pushing the doors open and stepping aside. "I'll not baby you, choose your own areas and stick with it be quick about it so we can get tot he assessment."
