Jack wasn’t the first to think that Leaf’s armband was as green as his name only because of where he was from, not who he was. Most of the stable-loft crew had assumed he was a wannabe combat spec, and once or twice he’d been mistaken for a denied hero (he’d laughed so hard he fell off a chair when Gloria told him she’d thought for a while he’d wanted the purple badge, to be leading the charge; he fell into directing people so easily when the battle for Driftwood island came, she’d said, and he grinned and asked her if she’d like to go tell Nurse to her face that healers weren’t allowed to give instructions like they were supposed to be followed)
Francis Uyeda walked through the Academy’s hated gates when he was eighteen, because there was something here worth saving from itself. His mother’s face had been stern and calm on the dockside, and when she kissed his forehead and wished him luck he could see her folding in and in on herself. One of the younger kids had been crying. One of his sisters had stubbornly refused to speak to him since he sent off the forms, and another had done the same once his acceptance had come back. His brother had made him promise to say hi to the Rangers.
He had lived most of his life on a ship, and now the ground lay still beneath his feet. He braced himself against it and stumbled when he adjusted his balance thoughtlessly for a shift that wasn’t coming. The ground was still, stable, and he felt off balance for weeks.
