Their travel time back to the Main Base from Sabi gave her enough time to think about what had happened. Her actions at that time were embarrassing yet at the same time she felt relieved. Some parts of her memory was hazy but fortunately or unfortunately she remembered her direct approaches to them. The problem she’s been running away from was finally resolved.Setting: wrote:

In a ludicrous manner which made her laugh while remembering it. She’d also troubled Lucifer and General Kisara, “Ugh I better find the time to apologize to them. And also to General Ileana. Eek. What an unsightly conduct. As a soldier, I might be punished for starting a fight and causing a ruckus.” she sighed.
How could she have known that she would miss him and accidentally hit that big guy. “Though it was unintentional.” she chuckled. Thankfully, Lucifer intervened and they just, she guessed, escaped from the chaos. “Better have some control next time. Maybe only a bottle or two of vodka next time.” she mused in herself.
Now to get back to the main point. Things ended sourly between them. “Foolish girl. That was such a childish tantrum.” she consoled herself “It was a bit fun while it lasted.” She finally accepted that they were never going to be together. Pushing it further after that would be plain stupidity on her part. Plus it wasn’t like her to dwell on such things for too long. “It has gone on for a while now. I better end it properly this time… for myself… and for us.”
It wasn’t like the love story of her parents. Not that she actually knows it. They did leave out some parts. Their story was that father saved mother somehow and they ended up helping each other. Not much on the specifics but the important part was that they lived happily together. “I should ask Uncle Lyall if I get to see him.” She envied their love and wanted one of her own. She thought it would be him. But alas, it wasn’t.
She wanted to have a last talk with him and fix their messed up friendship. In their line of work where they could lose their lives at any moment, it was better to not have any regrets. “This might be the last time we’ll see each other.” she murmured. She thought back on how they almost lost their lives at Kyros Bridge. “I need to train more.” she resolved herself. This time, she’ll spend more time training than idling away.
At any time, she may be called to the frontlines and accompany General Ileana. So she should also clear up all misunderstandings she had with them. Livi had accepted that there is something more between the two of them. Confirmed or unconfirmed, she would not look at things blindly this time. No more running.
She saw Rylen from afar and approached him. “Hey Rylen, do you have a moment? I’d like to talk with you for a while?”
