A huge storm was hitting the island of Bellmuse today, rain was pouring down without end, lightning was striking down the earth everywhere and the winds were blowing away anything that wasn't rooted into the ground. Only fools would venture outside with such a climate, fools and those who answered the call of duty. In the middles of Skylight Woods, by a road that was going through a clearing, a convoy was transporting goods from Bellmuse Central to Springwood, but the the current weather, the roads were all muddy and hard to travel on and so some of the vehicles got stuck. Furthermore, multiple reports mentioned an increase in Grimm activity in the recent days, which made the situation potentially dangerous for everyone involved.

And so, the convoy sent a S.O.S. to Syne Academy and to a local emergency broadcast asking of help. While currently things weren't dire, they could quickly become so and no one was ready to wait for it to happen. Myra had just finished attending class when she heard the news about the convoy, so without any second thought she jumped on the occasion to give a hand and rushed towards the airship that was bound for the convoy, obviously making sure that she had everything she would be needing. Apparently her and whoever else would answer the call for help would only be needed to keep watch for Grimms if any would show up while the personnel escorting the convoy got the vehicles out of the mud they were stuck in. The destination wasn't too far from the academy, but the huntress in training had some time to kill before arriving. Looking around the airship as it took off, she wondered who else would be there since the aircraft didn't wait long after she got in before leaving. Myra wasn't sure if someone else had the time to get in or if she'd meet others only at the convoy.

A large storm had had taken hold over Bellmuse. The sounds of intense rain, roaring thunder, and the cracks of lightning could be heard all across Syne Academy. Under most circumstances, Cynthia would have decided to stay in her dorm room catching up on her reading. However, today was different as Cynthia had a reason to be outside. Syne Academy has just received an emergency S.O.S from a supply convey that was heading to Springwood. They have gotten stuck in the mud and are requesting the assistance of Syne Academy. Cynthia had heard reports that Grimm attacks have gone up in that sector. It didn't take her long before she got geared up and ready to go.

After accepting the mission request from the school, Cynthia barely made it onto the airship before it took off. After drying herself off, Cynthia then checked her scroll to refresh herself on the mission details. The area of operations was quite close to Syne Academy. Currently, the convoy was not under attack by any Grimm. However, the convoy had decided that having huntresses on standby would be a good idea just in case the Grimm decided to attack while they were trying to get the vehicles out of the mud. In addition to this, Cynthia had received news that she would be working with a fellow huntress.

"Looks like I am not alone on this mission. I wonder what kind of person will my fellow huntress be." Cynthia commented to herself as she put away her scroll. After securing her ammunition, Cynthia began to walk around in search of the huntress she will be working with. The airship was mostly empty due to the nature of the emergency. After passing by a couple of crew members, she spotted a young woman with lavender hair who was busy looking around as if she was searching for someone. After taking into account the skeleton crew and the lack of students onboard the airship, Cynthia made the determination that that young woman was the huntress she would be working with. She then walked up to her before speaking.

"You must be the other huntress that Syne Academy has sent on this mission. My name is Cynthia Testarossa Schwarzchild, and I will be working alongside you today." Cynthia greeted as she gave a salute to her fellow huntress.

It was going to be Myra's first official mission, she was really excited about it as she had never really been able to prove her worth to the school yet as she had classes to catch up to since she joined the academy late making it hard to find time to go to the training ground with other students to spar and train. Since this was a call for help sent to Syne, surely the mission would be observed in some way, reports written about her and witnesses interrogated on how things would go. Finally it was time to go all out!

Myra almost jumped in surprise as an unfamiliar voice spoke to her as she was spacing out, thinking about the mission ahead. It was a tall young woman who easily towered over her, especially with her high heels. She was really pretty but looked super serious as she introduced herself with a military salute. It was the first time anyone greeted the shorter girl that way, so she wasn't sure how she was supposed to respond so she decided to return the salute, standing up and mirroring the gesture before stating her own name and saying it was a pleasure working alongside her. The sight was probably quite a clash, the tall professional lady and the shorter one with a bright yellow raincoat, it was actually making Myra giggle lightly as she took a more natural pose before asking how Cynthia was doing and she she felt about the mission ahead. They had time to kill so doing small talk seemed like a good way to pass time until they would reach their destination.

"I am doing great, Myra." Cynthia replied calmly as she took a look at her fellow huntress. She was maybe five or six inches shorter than Cynthia. However, her most distinctive features were the ram's horn on the side of her head. From this, Cynthia knew that Myra was a Faunus. However, Cynthia didn'y go further down that chain of thought since she wasn't a Faunus expert. Cynthia couldn't help but make not of Myra's rather cheerful demeanor. Cynthia couldn't help by smile slightly at her fellow huntress.

"Honestly, this mission is like any other to me." Cynthia replied calmly as she placed her hand on Myra's shoulder in a firm yet friendly manner. As she did this, she took a look into Myra's eyes. From this, Cynthia picked up a sense of excitement and inexperience from her fellow huntress. This instantly told her that this might be Myra's very first mission.

"I look forward to working with you. However, I have three rules: 1) Do your best. 2) Be careful out there. And finally; 3) Relax." Cynthia added in a calm and professional yet reassuring tone. She had picked up a tinge of tenseness in her fellow huntress.

"As long as you follow those three rules, we will be alright." Cynthia added finally as she finally took her hand off Myra's shoulder.

Myra smiled as Cynthia said she was doing great. It was one thing to go on a mission and another to go on one when you're not feeling well, either health wise or emotionally but everything seemed to be good. The faunus noticed that the girl she was facing seemed to analyze her, her eyes were clearly wandering all over the shorter girl. It's not that she minded or thought it was offensive, she just wondered what she was observing. Maybe how she could have pink hair?

Myra mentally shrugged, it didn't really matter in the end, what mattered was the future success of the mission, which Cynthia clearly agreed on as she proceeded to state rules to follow, which really sounded more like some advice than rules but the idea was there, be confident and careful and everything should be fine. The small girl nodded with a smile and gave a thumbs up before the pilot of the airship began to speak through the radio of the aircraft, saying that they would soon arrive at the destination and that they would be clear for drop off.

Only a minute later, they reached their destination and as soon as she was able to, Myra got out of the airship, landing in a small but relatively deep puddle of mud. She was facing the convoy, four vehicles in line with the biggest being third in line, obviously the one transporting the goods between the two major cities of the island. It appeared that the weight of the cargo was the reason why it sank into the mud and the rain was only making things worse. A soldier quickly approached the two huntresses, explaining that they would be able to deal with the stuck wheel and should be back on the road in about half an hour if everything worked and that all they had to do really was to keep watch for Grimms. The man then returned to help those working to get the convoy back on track, leaving the girls to their duty. Myra just began walking around the convoy, looking at everyone and into the distance, hoping to spot anything before anything would spot them first.

A few minutes later, the airship arrived at the Area of Operation. As soon as it safe to do so, Cynthia got off the airship with Myra. As soon as her feet touched the ground, Cynthia found herself facing the supply convoy. It was not a very long supply convoy. It was only a total of four vehicles long. However, they were all loaded to maximum capacity with supplies bound for Springwood. In particular, the third vehicle of the convoy was loaded the point that is bulging a bit. A few seconds later, a soldier walked up to her Myra and briefed them on their objectives. It was quite simple: Keep an Eye out for Grimm while the convoy gets unbogged from the mud. After their briefing, Cynthia watched as Myra began walking around the convoy. Cynthia, on the other hand, began taking mental notes on the area and any potential attack routes.

"Hmm...There are multiple attacks routes Grimm can use to hit the convoy. They can come from the forest on either side of the road or they can come from the air." Cynthia thought quietly to herself as she looked around the area. Having so many avenues of attack put the convoy at a disadvantage. So Cynthia decided to even the playing field a bit. As a precaution, Cynthia decided to use some of the high explosives shells she brought with her as improvised proximity mines.

Cynthia then began taking out a bunch of high explosive shells from the ammunition box she carried with her and began setting the fuses manually to Proximity. In addition to this, she set the unused IFF system in the shells so that herself, Myra and the convoy were considered friendlies. This meant that it would only explode when Grimm walked by. As soon as she completed this, she rigged the shells in bundles of two before placing them in key positions where she think the Grimm will come from when they attack the convoy. After completing the task, Cynthia regrouped with Myra.
