Vidalia smiled and leaned forward."Really?! They are dangerous and I was trying really hard not to accidentally graze any of you ladies!"

Praise wasn't something she gained often from other people for obvious reasons. She dropped back on the seat with the smile still plastered on her face. It dropped afterward remembering that she'd have to go talk to her therapist about the events of her initiation mission. Vidi didn't look back at Sona in fear that she would further question her. Vidi looked out the window to focus on the type of cupcake she'd be getting.

Sona can feel her chest tighten when she see the black adorned girl smile at the description of her attack. The girl's smile abruptly dropping does little to easy the faunus's tension.

"Very dangerous. Do they often kill your opponents?" Sona tries to say casually, but a hint of her apprehension sneaks into her voice. Sona winces subtly when she notices it, as if chiding herself for not being able to hide it.

Patchouli couldn't help but notice Vidi's smile fade as she looked away from Sona. "Sona... isn't there anything else we can talk about?" She spoke up gently. "We were ultimately successful, more than Shade could possibly have expected us to be. We should be celebrating, not interrogating." Though she knew this would weigh on the group later, now was not the time to deal with it. Sona and Vidi would have plenty of time to discuss back at Shade, after they had both taken the time to really absorb what had happened.

Sona's head whips around to look at Patchouli, a mix of surprise and alertness etched on her face. It last less a second, replaced with a light, hollow smile.

"Interrogate? I didn't mean for that, I'm sorry Vidalia!" she says in an amiable tone of voice. She continues on, changing the topic as Patchouli requested.

"Do you really think they didn't expect us to wrap this up completely? This is Shade, they surely have the highest of expectations." She says. Sona's head is tilted around, facing Patchouli across the jeep. Her smile is as light as her tone, but her eyes don't hold the same expression. They belay swirling thoughts, cloudy yet focused.

"I- no. I didn't expect to use so many." Vidalia answered Sona's question while avoiding eye contact.
 
She knew It wasn't Sona's intention on making her feel uncomfortable, but the question she asked made it seem like Vidi was crazy. The girl didn't bother to look at anyone else in the car. Hearing Patchy defend her made Vidi happy. At least someone didn't think that she was bonkers.

Vidalia opened her scroll to quickly send a message to her therapist to let her know that she'd be coming by as soon as she arrived at Shade.

Patchouli sighed wearily. "Of course they didn't expect us to fully complete the mission... We were outnumbered from the start, and fighting on the enemies' territory. Not to mention the handicap of trying to take everyone alive." She winced, realizing she shouldn't have said that. After a quick glance at Vidalia, Patchouli turned her attention to the clouds in the sky, trying in vain to put up a wall between her and the others.

Sona's pleasant expression fades as Patchouli speaks about the handicap on the mission. As the other faunus girl looks to the sky, Sona looks intently at her, her lips pursed slightly in contemplation.

With a roll of her shoulders she smiles again. "I don't know about that. I don't think Huntresses have the luxury of fair fights. Maybe this mission was to show us just that." Sona smiles in wistful sort of way, sighing as she does. She twists in her seat, no longer looking to the back seat and facing forward, bouncing her back lightly against the seat. She only looks forward for a moment, seemingly lost in a thought, her ears twitching when the jeep drives over a rock and her right index finger lightly tapping the arm rest on the door.

"Like that... I don't think we succeeded. Maybe we performed admirably, but... it's not a success." She says honestly. She raises an eyebrow and her right ear twitches, barely to be called a surprised expression. It disappears just as quickly as it appears.

"We performed as admirably and as successfully as Shade could have asked of us. Plus, we are also still first years and this is our first mission. We are far from being Huntresses but I think we are beyond first years in our coolness factor. And kickass-ery. We did great." Lynae chimed in with a smile.

Sona looks over to her partner with an unreadable expression, jaded and her lips pursed. Her eyes are discerning and her back straightens slightly.

"..." She sighs, the emotion gone. Her ears fall slightly and the corner of her mouth twists slightly, in frustration. She ends up settling against the door, crossing her legs as she does.

Patchouli silently continued to lean forward, occasionally peering at her partner but mostly staring at the floor of the jeep. Vidalia's mishap, the arguing amongst teammates, the failure or success of their mission, their future at Shade, and her own place in the grand scheme of things... all of these thoughts swirled around her mind and came together with a crash to become nothing. Her mind empty, Patchouli simply sat in solemn silence until the jeep hit a bump. Her eyes then widened and her breathing became heavier and less controlled; this was gonna be one heck of a ride home.

The jeep hits a bump in the trail and bounces, the back of the jeep groaning as the bandits are knocked into the trunk and each other. The lull is all that seems to be needed to let any remaining hope of conversation die out. The rest of their trip is quiet, with each of the girls lost in their own thoughts.

Team VLPS returns to Vacuo city as the sun begins to sink in the sky. By the time they got a hold of the supervising professor to pass off the bandits to and got rid of the men that sun had passed beneath the horizon. VLPS is shuffled back to Shade with a pat on the back and the promise of further review for their mission after the semester begins properly. One final night in the massive common room awaits them before the proper welcoming ceremony in the morning.

Only the teams returning successfully from their missions are present in the morning. That said, the members of VLPS have trouble locating any missing group, a testament to the combined strength of their graduating class. The ceremony is short and sweet, in typical Vacuo fashion. The entire room is finally welcomed to Shade as students and this is met with whoops and cheers. It's an infectious mood that can help but spread to each member of VLPS. Through all the hardships they've faced and hard work they've put in, they've made it to Shade. They passed their final test, their Trial under Fire. And there's no way that can't make one smile.
