(OOC: Wait a minute, Specimen-- you're playing characters both here and in Wutai? That seems to go against SO81's rules...)
The following day, Cid made his way to the still under-construction Shinra Building, ignoring the drone of the cranes, not to mention the warning shouts of the foremen on site when he veered too close to restricted areas. His destination was the 14th floor, which, at the time, was occupied by the Weapons Development department. His team's meeting was scheduled to be the first one of the day.
After grabbing a mug of what ended up being the worst coffee he had ever had in his life from the break area, Cid entered the conference room. He was the last person to show up, but he had arrived just in time, so the stares of his colleagues didn't faze him.
He leaned back in his chair and listened as the Weapons Dev. bosses outlined their plans for the Junon region: new training mechs for the military academy, additional elevators and other structural improvements to Junon's facilities (being made in conjunction with Urban Dev.), and the development of a new type of cargo plane called "Gelnika", which piqued his interest. Another item which Cid took special notice of was a vague passing mention of an underwater construction project.
Toward the end of the meeting, one of the Weapons Dev. execs said, "Because of all these new initiatives, we've decided to place one of our department's rising stars in charge of all developments in the Junon region. Please welcome your new supervisor, Scarlet Bouchard."
A blonde woman, whose apparel seemed more appropriate for a night on the town than an office building, stood up from the back of the room and introduced herself, and told everyone that she looked forward to working with them. Cid was still so new at Shinra that he didn't know anything about this lady, but, glancing around the room, the expressions on some of his more seasoned coworkers' faces were a less than encouraging sign.
