It had seemed like only yesterday that the Lady Mila and its exhausted crew had arrived at Aprilius during the middle of Clyne Faction's so-called "Operation April's Fool". Jeremy Knight sighed as he stretched out on his bed, it had been a long time since that day and many things had happened to the "Mila" and its crew.
Having to rely on Clyne Faction for supplies during their stay, the crew found themselves getting more and more involved with the everyday jobs of Clyne Faction soldiers. Eventually, it came to a point where it just seemed natural to launch the Mila and help salvage mobile suit parts with the other Clyne members. Jeremy hadn't minded it in the least, as his respect for the Clyne family was quite high, but he had worried about his other crew members, and whether or not they wanted to return to their homes.
Jeremy then smiled to himself as he remembered when he had spoke to his crew. Juliana Kite, Maria Wilford, Johnathon Donalds, and Drann Kanzaki. Even though they were half of what their original crew had been, they were all stout-hearted and loyal. They had unanimously decided to continue to follow Jeremy's orders, even if it meant having to join the war. None of them liked the idea of fighting, but it seemed a foregone conclusion that there was some things that could only be conveyed through battle. Drann was technically a mercenary, but he said that he would continue to help out the Lady Mila, should they need to borrow his strength.
Jeremy rose from his bed and left the comfort of his room to take a look at the Mila from the outside. Clyne Faction's engineers had done an excellent job modifying the Lady Mila, and it now had the firepower to hold its own in combat. Igelstellungs, missile launchers, and Gottfried cannons made up the bulk of its armements, but Jeremy was most impressed by its innovative MOSSDEEP system; which acted as a remote linked mobile suit launching system.
"We still have the same ideals, we've just found a new way to express them. I'll stil do my best to follow you, I'm just going along in my own way. I hope I can make you proud, father..." He said as he stood outside the Lady Mila, watching the lights of the hangar that held it reflect off of the Mila's hull. Many things were going to happen, but he that at least way he would have his voice heard.
