[Episode] Training Days Empty [Episode] Training Days

Sun Jun 12, 2022 1:41 pm
Name: Training Days
Category: Episode
Player Participants: Julius Khan III (+0), Ryoichi Ayugai (+1)
Planned Location(s): Minion Island
Planned Time Range: March 13, 1829 - March 16, 1829

Summary: A squad of physically unimpressive new recruits is sent to Minion Island for some additional physical training. Ryoichi only has 4 days to get them in better shape.

“Form up maggots! ATTEN...HUT!”

The sun wouldn't rise for another few hours over Minion Island and Captain Thomas Mateo had already begun yelling. The short, pudgy, red-faced Captain with a tuft of green hair on top of his otherwise bald head stood before a squad of twelve young recruits. All of them were either skinny or fat looking. None of them were strong or confident. Nor were any of them older than twenty nor ranked higher than seaman recruit.

“Listen up! None of you are worth the starch in your uniform but for some goddamned reason, nobody's thrown you out yet! You are all weak! Pathetic! Useless! That's why we're here! Am I clear?!” berated Captain Mateo.

“Sir! Yes sir!” shouted the squad in unison.

“Well, at least you're not stupid! Now...”

Fresh snow had started to fall on the winter island and the wind had begun to pick up. The standard marine uniforms that each member of the squad wore did little to protect them from the below freezing temperatures. Every young man shivered violently where they stood. They were all tired and they were all cold. They all thought about running back onto the ship and going back to sleep. But not a single one of them dared break formation.

“...you are here become strong!” continued Captain Mateo. “By the time...”

One of the young men, a skinny looking seaman recruit named Julius Khan, hated getting up so early in the morning. The cold and the yelling had managed to shock him awake at a first but that shock soon wore off. When it did he began to feel sleepy again and when he felt sleepy he did the worse thing he could have possibly done. He yawned.

“...I'm sorry. Am I fucking boring you?!”

Like a bull seeing red Captain Mateo charged at poor Julius. The red-faced, angry captain got up in the recruit's face. Close enough that when he screamed his spit got in the lad's eyes.

“N...no sir,” stammered Julius meekly.

The young man looked down at the ground. He was too afraid to look the angry captain in the eyes. This only made things worse.

Smack!

Captain Mateo slapped Julius across the face hard enough to leave a bright red welt on the recruit's pale cheek.

“You will look at me when I speak to you! Are we fucking clear?!”

“S..sir! Yes sir!” stammered Julius. This time he forced himself to look Captain Mateo in the eyes.

“Good!” continued the captain. “Since you sleeping fucking beauties need help waking up all of you better drop and give me fifty! Are we clear?!”

“Sir! Yes sir!”

“Now maggots!”

In unison, the squad dropped to their hands and knees and as they did their push-ups in the ice and snow Thomas Mateo continued to yell.

“As I was saying! You are all here because you are weak! Any moment now Petty Officer Ryoichi Ayugai come over that hill and for the next four days, he will try to whip you sad sacks of seaking shit into shape! You will do everything he says! When he says run you better run! When he says jump you better jump! When he says go fuck yourself you better dig in deep and find a way to fuck yourself!

Are we clear!?”

“Sir. Yes sir!”

[Episode] Training Days Empty Re: [Episode] Training Days

Sat Jun 18, 2022 5:44 am
MORNING! It is the morning. The sun was not shining but it was morning-ish time. The bell that was on the doorway was ringing, indicating to the entire crew deck that it was time to wake up and get to work!

"Wha..- Morning, already? This is bullshit!" "Yeah! It's not even sunny outside."

It was then that the room was separated into two groups. A group of the loud rowdy new recruits who are not used to the marine regime... Most have had a more free lifestyle in their past lives. And then there was the second group. The group who had accepted the reality.

They are on Minion Island, the land where the sun barely shines during the daytime. It was easy to mistake the morning for nighttime. It was something that will take a long time to understand and get used to.

Among those accepted faces was the man himself. Petty Officer Ryoichi Ayugai, who had been given the first-ever own assignment on the said island. It was unusual, however. Usually, the man would already be up, having trained, heck, even having had breakfast...

But his body needed all the recovery he could get from the most recent mission in Paradise. If sleeping an hour or two longer gave him a chance for faster recovery, he was going to do it... Otherwise, some punishment was coming from the Plague Doctor himself.

The man got himself dressed up in the matching uniform with most of the marine recruits. Same boots, same pants, heck almost the same shirt. The difference was that his shirt was in fact sleeveless. He had to hurry now.

The hair gel from the container was applied to his hair and returned to the chest next to the hammock, and off he went. He left the base of operation and began his running. Although his morning training recently had been slowed down, it was the least he could do.

- Minutes later -

"Petty Officer Ayugai reporting for duty!"

Ryoichi stood straight, his legs together, feet a bit angled diagonally to each side. His left arm was behind his back while the right hand moved to his forehead height to salute the captain.

He was matching the look of the new recruits. Barely any warm clothing to combat the cold of the island, as a matter of fact, he probably had some less clothing, that being the shirt sleeves. He was the polar opposite of the captain who was enjoying the warmth of clothes.

There was an obvious reason why Ryoichi did not need the clothes. Most knew, but the recruits probably did not. Perhaps someday, they will know.

“Fo...rty...one! F...forty...t...two!” shouted Julius, counting out his push-ups alongside the other recruits.

Julius's voice was as shaky as his noodly arms. His arms, chest, and shoulders ached horribly and his breathing was raspy. His hands, which had remained pressed against the rough, iced-over ground, were especially sore. The constant contact with the ice and snow had caused the skin to turn red, blister, crack and bleed.

“Stop! Hold!” commanded Captain Mateo.

The squad of shivering seamen stopped in place and struggled to hold their push-up position.

“Atten...hut!”

Groans of pain and some sighs of relief could be heard as the recruits forced themselves back to their feet and into an attention position. Their movements were even more sloppy and out of sync with each other than before. This did not go unnoticed by Captain Mateo.

“What in the crispy, fat fried FUCK was that!?” he shouted. “I should beat the breaks off of every last one of you lazy, good for absolutely fucking nothing, embarrassments to the marines!”

“This is Petty Officer Ayugai!” continued the Captain.

That was when Julius noticed the other man standing next to the captain. The petty officer was at least a foot and half taller than Captain Mateo and considerably leaner. The young seaman recruit also noticed that the Petty Officer was dressed in the same sort of uniform that he and the other were but didn't seem nearly as bothered by the horrible winter weather.

“On my command, you will salute him! And I swear on my mamma's grave, if it's not sharper than Sky God's sword, I will run you sloppy little shit stains until you all fucking die!

Are we clear!?”

“Sir yes sir!” answered the recruits in unison though some of their voices wavered.

“Salute!”

The recruits did as they were told but they were far from perfect. Several were off beat and out of sync by at least a second or two and none of them were as sharp as promised but it was the best they could do in the condition they were in. Even the red-faced, foul mouthed captain could see that.

Captain Mateo scoffed and turned to Ryoichi.

“They're all yours Officer,” he grunted.

"Captain Mateo, sir. I still need the recruits alive."

Ryoichi grinned slightly at the captain's ways of injecting discipline into the young recruits. He had, after all, passed similar training himself. The key difference compared to most of the current recruits is that he was way more fit for the training.

"Listen up everyone! Name's Ryoichi Ayugai. Petty officer! It is a pleasure to meet the lot of you. What awaits us is four days of training in the cold forests here on Minion. I will give each and every one of you fifteen minutes to head over to your quarters, be it on the ship or on this very island, to pack your bags with things of necessity."

As Ryoichi spoke, he was passing by the lined-up marine recruits. Compared to their most recent previous instructor, Captain Mateo, Ryoichi's voice did not contain a sense of demand, he did not display himself as the "telling" type.

"Remember! Necessity! Use your common sense, this will be your first training lesson. If you are not back by fifteen minutes, that will be fifteen push-ups and fifteen sit-ups per each late person."

He stopped in front of the recruits and looked at each and every one of them. Some of them nodded with understanding, some however looked somewhat dumbfounded. But what he asked was not that hard to understand, right?

Ryoichi looked down at the stopper watch which he had grabbed from the pocket "You have got fifteen minutes... Starting... Now!" he clicked on the stopper. It was now or never to grab what they can.

Everyone was smart enough at least to go and actually grab something to go along with this training trip... Question is, were they smart enough to not overbear?

“Handle them how you want,” shrugged Captain Mateo to Petty Officer Ayugai. “They've got some important paperwork for me at the base so you're in charge.”

As Ryoichi continued to address the recruits and give them orders the captain turned his back to them. Thomas Mateo jogged up the hill, going back the same way that Ryoichi Ayugai had come. Soon he was out of sight of the petty officer and the recruits.

Meanwhile, Julius and the other recruits continued to stand at attention as Ryoichi continued his lecture. As much (and maybe more) out of fear of further punishment as respect for his superior officer, Julius hung on to every word the petty officer spoke. When the order to retrieve their things was given, Julius, along with the other recruits, scrambled into action.

Julius and the other recruits pushed and shoved past each other like a bunch of rowdy children. They rushed to their bunks in crew's quarter of the ship to get their things. Most of the recruits had very little with them. A few changes of clothes. Standard marine issue weaponry. Things of that nature. One of the young recruits was a fat looking fellow that had told Julius on the trip over that he wanted to be a combat medic. That one had a first aid kit.

Julius himself kept it simple. He quickly threw on a fur trapper style hat that had been issued to him along with the gloves and wool cloak that had come with it. This was standard attire for marines working on winter islands. The weapon he'd been issued was a basic, single-shot rifle with a bayonet attachment. He made sure to grab it before slinging a pouch full of ammo over his shoulder.

Most of the other recruits, including Julius, were able to get their stuff and make it out with time to spare. Unfortunately for them, a few stragglers threatened to get them all punished for not being quick enough.

“Come on!” they shouted at their flailing comrades. “Hurry up!”

As he looked at the group of trainees leaving the spot like rowdy children trying to grab the hottest toy, he began to base back and forth on the same track he walked while talking to the young recruits. There was a good fifteen minutes to kill, but also... Fifteen minutes to think.

"Rats... I had completely forgotten this assignment... I was so focused this morning with training that I forgot to make a plan!"

The basing got faster as he was mumbling to himself, heck he even threw a couple of punches in the air. Ryoichi was restless but also worried. The first impression is what matters the most. He had not conducted a proper training session before for the others... It was always him who was the one being trained.

"Never expected to be the one to be thrown into the training shoes... I am the one doing the combat, not the one teaching how to. Think Ryoichi... Think..." the self-mumbling continued.

The time flies when you are enjoying yourself, only in this case, Ryoichi was worrying to himself. The fifteen minutes had passed at a speed of light, or sound. The stopwatch was ringing, and by that time, already a good group of people had gathered in front of him, some out of breath, some quite eager to start their training.

"Alright! One... Two... Three... Four... Fiiiiiive. Not the worst performance. Good job. That'll be seventy-five sit-ups... But! We shall have them once we make it to our campsite, up there!"

He pointed at the entrance to the forest up the seaside hill with a grin. The entrance to the forest was not far away from the group, but the camp side was not immediately by the entrance... There were still ways to go inside the forest.

"We shall run up the hill towards the entrance over there, our campsite awaits us in that forest. If someone manages to pass me up that hill, they'll be free from sit-ups. Ready?"

Ryoichi prepared himself for the jog, expecting the recruits to do the same.

"Go!"

And the run began up the very hill to reach the entrance. The hill was not steep way up, but it was not really flat either. But that was not the worst of the challenge. The knee-deep snow mid-way was what caused the most problem for the bunch. To make this a fairer challenge for everyone, instead of going full out, Ryoichi was doing a light jog instead. Does he want to see someone succeed and be faster than him... Or did he have any other motive?

The recruits groaned. They were already tired and cold. Not one of them wanted to try and jog uphill through the rough terrain. Not when they knew that the only thing waiting for them was more just more physical training.

“This sucks,” Julius heard one of the recruits complain. Silently, he agreed.

Still, in spite of all their whining and complaining, they did as they were told as best they could. As the weakling marines did their best to trudge through the snow one of them came up to Julius.

“Psst,” they whispered. “Hey.”

Julius looked over at the other recruit. He was a tall, dark skinned boy who was so skinny that Julius thought he looked malnourished. Julius had seen this other recruit on the ship. They worked in the engine room he rembered. But, unfortunately, he couldn't remember their name.

“You're a devil fruit user right?” asked the recruit in a hushed tone.

“Y...yeah?” whispered back Julius, afraid of Petty Officer Ayugai hearing him.

“Can you use your powers to help us?”

Julius looked away.

“I don't know if I should...” he answered.

“It'll be fine. Come on,” urged the other recruit.

It was then that Julius tripped over a tree root tha was hidden by the deep snow. He stumbled forward, and face planted into the ice and snow. The cold from the frozen powder stung his already chapped skin like thousands of tiny razor blades. Julius groaned and forced himself back to his feet. All the other recruits ran past him, making no effort to help him, or even break stride. Well, all except for one. The skinny, dark skinned recruit stopped to help Julius grab his things from out of the snow.

“Please,” they begged. And Julius sighed. The tempatation to make things easier for himself had become too great for him resist any longer.

“Fine,” he relented, “But just for us. Lift your feet.”

The sounds of metal clanking and rattling could be heard as various bits and bolts of scrap lifted from some of the nearby construction sites. The magnetized metal flew through the air before stopping underneath the feet of Julius and his new friend, forming what could best be described as a pair of makeshift snowshoes.

The added surface area to the bottoms of their feet prevented them from sinking too deeply into the snow and the jagged bottoms provided some much needed traction whenever they passed over a patch of ice. There was, of course, the issue of the added weight but compared to the other advantages it hardly mattered.

Once the two recruits got used to walking with their new footwear, they soon found themselves pulling ahead of the other recruits, who all struggled with the current conditions. This of course, elicited several complaints of “no fair” and a few accusations of “cheating”.

Julius was too miserable to care.
