Khloe Wade 
Ready Room - Deck 7 - Battlestar Cerberus
With the hatches at the rear of the room, the walkways on both sides slope down towards the dais at the front of the room. The stadium seating forms a partial semi-circle around the speaking podium and provides enough seats for all three hundred members of the Air Wing. The walls are adorned with the patches of each squadron aboard and their mottos stenciled in white lettering above each one. Behind the podium is a set of large LCD screens that can display any matter of material from reconnaissance to maps to gun camera footage.
Post-Holocaust Day: #238

Khloe is seated in the front row, legs crossed but with her ankle on her knee as opposed to the more feminine, with an open folder on her lap. She's thumbing through a variety of information from the look of it, from CAP reports to equipment status reports.

Wade just returned from the last CAP, so he is still wearing his flight suit. He carries his helmet under his arm as he steps inside the Ready Room. The man takes a few seconds to look around the room and then he walks towards Khloe. "Captain" says the man, offering a salute to the woman and then standing to her left. Indeed, he requested to speak with her.

Closing her folder and rising quickly to her feet, Khloe returns the salute when offered. "Lieutenant," she says in return, her usual stoic scowl on her face. "You asked to see me," she says as a statement. Then the question: "What can I do for you?"

"That I did" simply says Wade, nodding right after that. He clears his throat and the explains "I spoke with the CAG about this, and she mentioned that I should speak with you as well" He nods once again, as if agreeing with his own words and continues. "During my time in the sickbay, I had the chance to think about a couple things." He presses his lips together and simply doesn't delay things "I wish to start training under Major Hahn…to be able to Instruct others, to become pilots" Now he shakes his head "By no means, I wish to leave the Knights, I just want to learn, how to teach"

Khloe dips her head slightly, her usual scowl becoming a slight closed-mouthed grin. "That's good, Drips. I did some instruction at Tau Garrison, and I've occasionally run some Nuggets through scripted simulations aboard the Stussy. Haven't had much time to do that aboard Cerberus but I'd be glad to teach you what I know." Then, a little curious lilt to her voice: "Did the Major recommend me as a go-to on this?"

Wade listens in silence, his expression not changing in the slightest. "Yes, Major Hahn mentioned that she would work with me on this matter." He clears his throat and adds "She mentioned that I should also talk with you, she mentioned that you have experience with Vipers and Viper Pilots" To this, he nods and just waits in silence.

"Oh. Right." Shaking her head, Khloe looks briefly disappointed — but she's not trained her eyes on Wade when this happens. Probably something else she's thinking of. "Well, the Major is a busy woman. You have my permission, duties permitting. And if your schedules don't gel frequently, I'd be glad to fill in the in-between spots. But by all means."

Regardless of not having her eyes on Wade, the man can still see her face of course. And reading people is one thing he does, fairly ok. "Is everything alright ma'am?" asks the man now, still looking at her directly. However, he does set his helmet on a chair, because having it under his arm was starting to bug him just a little bit. "Of course, Duties come first."

Khloe's facial expressions harden. "Nothing that I can talk about, Lieutenant." She takes a breath, shoulders going stiff as well. Change the topic, something nice to say, something nice to say… "Oh, I was pleased to see your sim results. Seems in your downtime you didn't forget anything important about stick. Good to see you hitting the ground running."

Wade nods at what the Captain says at first "Very well" Now, there is a very faint smile forming on his features and he nods to that "Thank you Captain. One of the things I enjoy the most, is flying Vipers…." he stops for a moment and adds "Second to that, is just…flying, anything" He shrugs casually at this and clears his throat "Glad you found my results to your satisfaction"

Khloe nods again. Her stance shifts a little; it's clear that she's uncomfortable with small talk. "Well. If there's nothing else, Drips, I'll let you hit the showers."

Oh, Wade noticed that. He just looks at her straight into her eyes and when she speaks, he just says "Yes, I do believe I need one." Now, he stands straight and salutes "Captain" with that said, he takes his helmet, moves it under his arm, turns around and leaves the room. Shower time!
