When life gives you lemons, make GIN and tonic

Recommended Posts

Economics Minister Taro Nakada and Foreign Minister Matsu Takashima had been spent the previous month hastily putting the meeting together. There was one moment in time where they honestly thought they wouldn't have been able to pull it off. They didn't have a choice: the Emperor had given them a direct order to make sure it happened and without a hitch. The Orinese minister was first to arrive and both gentlemen spoke with him for about ten minutes before he was whisked away to his accommodations at the site of the gathering: Hotel Otemachi, which was also one of the tallest buildings in the city of Nakazami.

Takashima's staff had set up the conference room located on the 53rd floor of the building for the GIN sessions. As this was the third from the top floor, the viewing deck on the top floor had been converted into an elaborate dining room where the delegates would eat their meals with the view of the increasingly sprawly urbanity of Nakazami stretched out like octopus arms in all directions. This 'suburbanization' had been made possible by the high-speed railways the Kipanese Railways had opened, by proclamation of the Emperor, a decade before. One of the days of the meeting would involve the delegation taking the fast train out of the city and enjoy the sight of Mount Makapu.

Back on the tarmac, a soldier of the Kipanese Defense Forces, held a radio that had been speaking in frantic Kipanese for several minutes. He proceeded to share that a half dozen aircraft were all on descent trajectories and would be landing over the next forty-five minutes. Takashima then shouted everyone to straight up and get in position for the next arrival.
