Carlos squinted into the bright light before slipping his sunglasses over his eyes, and putting his hat on, trying to cut out the worst of the bright light. It was a horrible place, really. Ghost towns often were. He glanced around, seeing collapsed building which they could put tents up behind. It would do fine for what they needed.

“I think this will do,” Luccio said, coming up beside him, snapping him out of his reverie.

“The kids are going to hate it,” he commented, glancing at her. “It’s kinda desolate.”

“So?” Luccio said, favouring him with a smile. “We’re not here to baby them. They need to learn how to fight, and that means blowing things up. This place is ideal. I remember when you were in their shoes, Commander.”

Carlos laughed. “In a town much like this one,” he said. “Dios, was I ever so young?” he complained, looking as kids started arriving through the gateway.

“Oh yes, Ramirez, you were,” Luccio replied. “You just didn’t have to get signed up quite as quickly as these kids. You at least finished your apprenticeship.” She glanced as a pair of twins walked past them. “These are barely sixteen.”

Carlos sighed, and nodded. “Let’s get to it,” he said, pushing all thoughts of the war away. This time was just for training. The danger would come later.
