(Somewhere within AWS)

An old man was walking through the garden of a large mansion looking outside he looked active strange as he had carried the weight of millions on his shoulders, still considered a hero by the people he served. What he saw was something he didn't like. A man came to him.

"Sir, someone wants to talk with you"the man said.

"Let him in Nikolai I think I know who he is"the old man said sitting on a small bench.

It was Lieutenant Balanchine a pretty big guy within AWS and personal guard of the CEO as he walked through the hallway of the large mansion he looked around paintings of the man with several heads of State only in this room was history. Relics from ancient Nations; Deutschland, Byzantium, Slovetzia, etc. and modern nations still alive such as Promised Land, Rebel Army, Gebiv, many many more. It was obvious the man was important once but was it so temporary? Perhaps it was part of a greater plan or perhaps not. After waiting a while the old man walked in.

"Lieutenant welcome to my humble home, how can I help you?"the man asked.

"I have orders from the CEO to deliver you this letter, and to request if you require any protection from the Corporate Guard"Balanchine answered as he looked up he was the only one allowed to know the true identity as he was perhaps the only one within AWS who could not be bought by a 3rd party.

"That will not be required, thank you. Please join me for a cup of tea in the living room"the man said while turning around and walking towards the living room. Balanchine followed.

As they both got seated the waiter James came in with 2 cups of tea before he drank he read the letter and quickly put it away looking a bit disturbed.

"Anything wrong, sir?"Balanchine asked.

"Nothing wrong Lieutenant"the man answered drinking from his tea.

(5 hours later in one of the many rooms)

"Is there something, sir?"James asked seeing the man look through his window.

"I might need to go public soon but it is too early"

The man looked at the television to the speech of Sarah Tintagyl, this sure made his plans harder but still possible. After a while he walked towards the Hallway. "James prepare my limousine I am going to Molotov"

---

In Molotov another historical figure was busy, the former Empress of the Imperial Union Relena Peacecraft now a while out of coma looked around the room. She was still not cleared to leave the hospital but could walk freely. She looked outside of the window mobilization could be seen everywhere the target too. The only problem was it would be amongst others her best friend or better said former as the Presidency certainly pushed it to it's limits. However by her order a message was send to Brisbane she could come if only so Relena could see Nadine again.

The only thing that kept Sarah happy on the plane to Molotov was Nadine's happy face. She had watched Nadine grow up for the past two years, it a beautiful little toddler and it was almost that Nadine could see the tears behind Sarah's eyes as the plane began its decent into Molotov International Airport. Nadine's small hand reached down and wrapped itself tightly around Sarah's pointer finger and this was almost too much for the Lady Protector. Smiling, with blue tears falling down her eyes, she picked the child up and sat her on her lap and tapped her on the nose, making the child laugh and giggle. "My mother always used to steal my nose when I was your age. You're such a beautiful child Nadine. I'm going to miss you so much." Sarah picked her up and hugged her tightly. Finally as the plane landed, Sarah walked out to the runway with Nadine on her shoulders.

The guards at the airport did their best to try and be friendly, but Sarah felt unwanted, as if it would be better if she had just given Nadine to the guards and left from whence she came. But they allowed her to the hospital where in a secure area she would be allowed to see Relena again. For the first time in two years. As the guards led her in, Relena waited, still in her hospital gown in a quaint waiting room. Putting Nadine down to the floor, as if knowing who her true mother was, ran immediately to Relena's legs.

Relena looked up at Sarah afterward and the Lady Protector bowed her head. "If you want me to leave I understand."

Relena sighed.

"You are lucky you made it here Sarah if you would leave now immediately I do not know if you would get to the Airport alive, stay"she said after picking up Nadine it was a good feeling. The guards had left the room at the request of Relena she made sure they were neutral ones.

"It has been a long time way too long"she said with a hidden smile.

Sarah's frown slowly turned to a smile as she sat down in a chair next to Relena. She sat silent for a few moments before the tears slowly began to fall down her cheeks. "I'm glad to know that you still consider me you friend, I don't know who I can trust anymore." She looked at Relena, her eye shadow running down her face. "I'm not evil Relena, I swear, you know that you know I only want that best from this. I know I can make peace in the world, I know I can." Her head collapsed into her arms. "I'm sorry I know I shouldn't be telling you my troubles, its none of your business."

Sarah looked back at her and smiled. "I'm so happy to see you in good health again. Your coma scared me so much. Nadine was an angel, she always made me smile in the morning. I know she'll do the same for you." Taking Relena's hand, Sarah held it with both hands. "One day you and I will take a long vacation away from the troubles of the world. We can be human again."

"I look forward to that, believe me I know how you feel this side seems as focused to war as the Nords... I know you are not evil however those you ally with are... Be careful Sarah you are playing with fire they are known for having secret agendas I do not want to see you hurt"she said again looking at Nadine she was a beautiful child.

"Now to better subjects, what have you been up to the last few years Sarah? "

Sarah leaned back on the chair and breathed a sigh of relief, Relena's positivity helped so much during these dark times.

"What have I been up to? Geeze, where to begin over the last two years. We haven't talked to each other since the death of the Imperial Union. I think that was back when the Hansa was still a flat republic. I guess that's a good place to start. I was named Lady Protector a few months after the marriage. Leader for Life." Sarah sighed. "At the time I thought it would have been an amazing idea, but now with the stress I'm not so sure. What else? Well the Hansa has been stable, expanding a bit, especially with that god-forsaken colony of ours in Europe now. But personal life has been good, I've been able to find some time every no and then. After this tension subsides, I think I'm going to write a book, try to detail the Hansa and what has happened in the last few years."

She smiled. "Now that you're awake again, what is in your future?"

"Well that is a long story too, if this doesn't work out war I already got the position of Head of International Relations offered, if it does work I don't know think something tropic like a holiday resort in the Caribbean for a while we could both use some rest"Relena said.

Sarah smiled enthusiastically. "The Caribbean. Oh the Caribbean would be amazing Relena. Maybe even before the war is over, maybe we can all runaway from the chaos and tyranny of the world. It would be nice, but responsibility forbids anything like that." She laughed. "The evils of leadership, its a sad story for all of us. But things will get better. Things always get better." She looked at Nadine. "We're lucky to have such life with us, such beautiful life. Its that life that you and I must fight for Relena. That's the only thing that makes me wake up in the morning."

"Agreed there are so many innocent Children in the World, they do not deserve this it is a crime to do it to them, when I saw the reports of Slavorussian children hit in the war it broke my heart. Nadine could have been among them. While I do not know if it helps after so long you have my support perhaps we can do this together. And afterward we'll go to the Caribbean on the bill of the National Treasury"

Touching Relena's neck Sarah looked into her eyes. "Thank you so much Relena, I know I can always count on you and nothing makes me happier. This tension will end and we'll be in peace again, what happened to those Slavorussian children will never happen again. We will, I assure you, we will live in an age of peace and the Caribbean on the national treasury sounds great. I think we can spare some of my personal funds as well. We'll have a five star room looking out over the West Indies." She sighed and got up off the chair. "But I think I must head back now Relena, I have pressing engagements in both Brisbane and in Europe, take care and I will talk to you again soon. Hopefully in the next week." Then staring at Nadine, Sarah gripped her nose and laughed. "I stole your nose!" The child laughed as Sarah wiggled her face and Nadine hugged her as best as a two year old could.

"Take care both of you...take care."

An Officer walked a bit nervous at the entrance of the hospital what he was about to do would result in his death but he had to do it he checked his rifle again it was working as supposed to. It was a nice day one of those you would forget the radiation so close it was like paradise but soon dipped in blood.
