Day 2:

The trucks bumped and bounced along the highway. The lead vehicle, which Damien rode in, was fitted with a ramming blade to allow it to literally shove off the road anything that blocked its path. The other vehicles followed behind. It was slow going, though after hours of winding slowly through the broken roads the convoy picked up speed, reaching sixty or more in places.

Any attempt at conversation received verbal abuse from Ducky, who clearly didn't want Damien there. Eventually, the trucks pulled off the road and, after a short trip across what felt like untreated fields, they pulled up into a car park.
"Dismount!" Ducky barked. "You, boy! Captain Pretty will want to see you!"

Damien, after a long period of standing in a corridor, was introduced to 'Captain Pretty'. He wasn't. Most of his face was a mix of scars and burns. He had one working eye, and it stared at Damien in the manner of someone who had neither time nor patience for anything.
"Ducky filled me in. So, you're the one taking the piss out of C-Company, eh? I'd stand up, but I seem to have misplaced my legs."
He beckoned Damien to come behind the desk. There were no legs, but there was a selection of drinks.
"Help yourself." He said. "Name's Smith, if it's worth crap. I'm guessing you've just spent many happy hours in the company of Ducky, charismatic bastard that he is. He seems to think you're a soldier... so... I order you to take your drink, sit down, and listen to a cripple bitch about his job."

Damien did sit down. Smith reached over, with a hand sporting a missing finger, and selected a piece of paperwork seemingly at random.
"Let's go through the proceedure. I'm not as stupid as I am ugly, so I already figure you're not Saint Churchill reborn. You just tell me what you want... what you really want, and I'll scribble on this piece of paper something that will, I hope, help us both. So... Damien, wasn't it? What inspired you to take the piss out of my former unit and tag along for the ride?"
