Regina was evidently not understanding exactly where Anke was coming from. What wasn't hard to understand? A soldier interacting with her was beyond strange to begin with, let alone continue to do so when Regina had insisted it would only damage her reputation. To ignore that was beyond confusing into the simply irrational. She even went into detail as to what a conversation was. Regina wrinkled her nose. Of course she knew what a conversation was. The issue was who Anke was having the conversation with. Regina frowned. "It had nothing to do with you. You could have been Stewart or Paulson or Covey. No matter who, I would have gone about it the same way." Ever stoic and unemotive, Regina calmly explained that anyone who got that close would have been treated the same way-with unwavering resolve to prevent such a thing from happening ever again.
Still, Anke seemed to be enjoying herself, to the point of blowing a kiss at the other soldiers, which Regina stopped eating her slop to look at. "I am confused. Are you attempting to flirt? Do you need someone to introduce you or something?" Regina did not engage with other soldiers, but if the Terminator herself were to bring someone over, there was no doubt she would be listened to when addressed. Was that what she was after? Find a famous face to have an in? Regina was probably the worst possible choice, but...she couldn't tell. "I know what a conversation is." Regina felt like she was being spoken to as if she were a child. Just because she didn't emote like the other weaker soldiers in her unit didn't mean she was stupid or childish. Regina then cast her eyes back to her slop, taking a sip of her apple juice in the process.
However, when Anke spoke again, Regina's head snapped back up. "My reputation is pristine in Osnen. The reputation of someone who associates with me, however, is considered extremely avoidable." Regina explained quietly, but Anke's next words caused her to cease movement entirely. There it was. She knew there was a reason she came here. Her final sentence caused Regina to set down her spoon calmly, then stare Anke in the eyes, her amber orbs burning with determination and a contempt that seemed to permeate the air. "You. Will do. No such thing." Regina spoke deliberately and intently, with the conviction and fierce undertones of someone threatening another. Regina did not emote in the slightest, but if there was any single thing she excelled at regardless, it was intimidation. And if Anke would insist on trying to beat her, she would see that her records would become completely and utterly untouchable.
