Hyne's War - Chapter 32
What they don't tell you in school is that a lot of war is posturing, jockeying for position, and waiting. More waiting than anyone was really willing to admit to. Yeah, there was a lot of action in the course of a battle. But that, that was quick, painful, and confusing. And it came after more waiting than was really imaginable, especially when one was dealing with airships. The whole point was to get into the best position so that the enemy won't be able to take you down before you can take them down. Fights in the sky were about evasion, speed and maneuverability.

Everyone was present except for Selphie, although it had been almost 2 years since she was with us at all anyways. When she discovered she was expecting her and Irvine’s third child she decided to leave Garden for good. However, even without her our team of Elite SeeDs did well.
I glanced around the room for a moment before launching into the plan Rinoa and I written out in the hours between Quistis’s phone call and the meeting.
