Ino had felt—good, stable, all the way out of Fandom, off the island, and into Midgar, which was her own home now (and that was something she still had to remind herself of), even while they stopped to let her change into her uniform.

It was only as Zack pressed a kiss to her cheek, in the lobby of the ShinRa building and headed off for his own orders, that Ino felt the clawing uncertainty come back.

Talk to the receptionist, she’d been told. Ino could do that, though she despised walking into a situation blind. It was a comfort, at the least, that she already had her uniform, her I.D. , and that she was supposed to be here, so far as anyone was concerned.

That didn’t mean she wasn’t nervous, still, underneath the cool demeanour. This was her first time, after all, on the job, in this capacity. Her hair was down, flowing in careful waves down her back and her shoulders were straight as she approached the mission--reception desk.

“Excuse me?”

And Ino ignored the creeping panic that reminded her she had no idea of what else to say.

[NFB, please! For them that're in the building.]

The receptionist (who was, in fact, an attractive young woman and didn't look like the generic Midgar NPC that I've been using for everything ever, at ALL) looked up from the files that she'd been rifling through, casting a skeptical glance up and down at the girl who was standing in front of her.

Ah, one of the Turks. She must be new.

"Can I help you?"

Please. The woman had been dealing with confused new Turks for ShinRa for the past five years.

The turnover rate was pretty terrible. It wasn't exactly a career choice that was known for its longevity. And besides, she recognized the girl from elsewhere, didn't she? Wasn't she sweet on Zack Fair?

Idly, she wondered if maybe this girl could give her some information about him. She had this idea for a fan club...

"Iris." She pursed her lips thoughtfully, and then turned to rummage through her files. Eventually, she came up with the proper one, opened it up, and took a moment to read the notes. Yes, she was expected. "Have you got your identification, Iris?"

Nope, no test. The woman just wanted to make certain that she wasn't letting more Wutai terrorists loose in the building. ShinRa's security had been jacked up a bit, and it was one thing to let a SOLDIER's girlfriend up to the SOLDIER floor... It was another matter entirely, letting her go up to the Turks floor.

She studied the ID card for a moment, turned and typed a few things in on her computer, and then handed the card back to Ino.

"Tseng is waiting for you in his office with orders. I assume you know the way?"

The woman behind the counter just smiled sweetly in turn.

"I don't have clearance past the SOLDIER floor, myself," she replied, shaking her head. "I can tell you what floor he's on and let you wander about from there, oooor..." She continued to smile and made a reach for the phone. "I could call Tseng down to meet you, if you'd like."

She'd been bluffed by so many Turks in her career here, she rarely hesitated to use the 'tattle to the boss' card, these days. And wouldn't Tseng be thrilled to be called down 60 stories just to point his rookie in the right direction?

The receptionist smiled and put the phone back down on the hook, and then nodded toward the elevator.

"Just keep going up the floors until you get to the one you'll actually need clearance for. There's a scanner in the elevator to swipe your card. It's not far past the SOLDIER floor at all."

So the trip should only really take a small eternity.

Thank goodness she wasn't telling Ino to take the stairs.

Tseng was, of course, in his office by the time Ino finally figured out where she was going, and he was possibly looking somewhat amused... as much as Tseng ever managed to look amused.

He was also not alone. But he was going to at least save introductions until Ino knocked.

From the other side of the door, she might have been able to barely make out a mumble, low and lazy and maybe just a little nasal, something to the effect of how the owner of that voice was starting to wonder if she was going to ever find her way.

That voice was silenced with a word, the name of the one who had spoken.

"Reno."

A pause.

"Come in, Iris."

Younger Reno was wee and adorable and hadn't yet thought to do something crazy like grow out his hair, or blame himself for the state of the world as they saw it, and he certainly wasn't going to hesitate to leer at the rookie as she stepped into Tseng's office.

"Gonna have to get this one a map of the building," he mused, earning himself another look from Tseng before shrugging lazily and settling back to lean against the wall.

Tseng pressed onward. Reno would be Reno, there was no sense in fighting with him over that.

"Ready for your first assignment?"

He was, of course, not actually asking. She was a Turk. She would be ready for her first assignment when he said so. Or when any other Turk did, really, as well. She was, after all, the rookie.

"Excellent." And Tseng actually did appear to be somewhat pleased. Of course he would still have to introduce her to Verdot, and give her a proper briefing on the activities of AVALANCHE as of late, but for the time being, simply having new blood on the team was a refreshing change of pace.

And, he hoped, it would be one that would prove to be beneficial. At least to the Turks. Possibly to more than that.

"Before you leave, Reno will give you a proper tour of the building. Don't let him get to you."

He was, after all, Reno.

"He knows the assignment already. He'll fill you in on the details as you go."

Reno (who was young and adorable and a bit of a brat and who was not the one that this account was made for, the username liiiies) shot Ino a lazy smirk, before pushing himself off the wall and making his way to the door.

"Get movin', Rookie. We ain't got all day. I wanna get down to the streets soon, and I ain't gonna waste more time than I gotta, showin' you where the bathrooms and your new livin' quarters are, yo."

As Reno headed out into the hallway, Tseng simply sighed and shook his head. Reno was impossible. And he wouldn't dream of trusting any new blood to anybody but.

"Bathroom," Reno reported, pointing down one hallway. "Livin' space," he added, pointing in the other direction. "You can ask at reception what room number's yours. Or just keep crashin' with your SOLDIER, if you have problems findin' your way around, yo. You're a big girl. I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out, zoto."

Reno was such a caring individual. He always had been.

"That ain't all that important anyhow, since you won't be livin' around here for a few months yet. You armed yet?"

That was really the important part, here.

"You'd be surprised," Reno mused, shooting Ino that lazy grin of his before heading toward the...

Stairs.

There was no way in hell he was setting foot on an elevator ever again. Ino didn't mind a workout, right?

"So, what kinda weapon you got on you? An' Materia? Knowin' what we got to work with'll be helpful, here."

Hey, Reno wasn't going to knock a person with a huge throwing star, or anything. After all, Cissnei was one of his favorite Rookies, and she swore by hers.

"Just Fire, huh? We'll see if we can't get that levelled up for you today, then. Fire ain't gonna do shit against what we've been up against lately, yo."

He actually held the door open to the staircase for her. Apparently, he was totally not kidding.
