Chapter 8: Forced Evolution, part 2
Elizabeth Kennedy, full of excitement, wakes her brother up to inform him that today is the day she takes the Forced Evolution test. She asked him questions about the test, one notable question is what is the reward for passing it, Ash is unable to answer that question because it was to be kept a secret until she passes the test. She understood what he tells her, and they go to the Testing Grounds of Task Squad 496.
Meanwhile, in the headquarters of the Lightning Squad, William Osborne, the leader and commander of the squad makes preparations for the first battle of the Sacred Lightning War. He tells Gerald to use Emily Smith, who happens to be a Cyber-Newtype that they kidnapped from the Sapphire City Mall before its destruction as the pilot of the Psycho Gundam. A hooded member of the Lightning Squad managed to steal the Injection for the Psycho Gundam from the Kennedy Family, it has the cells needed for the latter to absorb Emily, and William uses them for the first wave of the Sacred Lightning War, which happens to be in the colony of New Hong Kong.
Ash and Elizabeth saw John Hawkins, noticing that they have known each other since they were kids, they went to Elementary School, Middle School, and High School with John, which makes the transition to Task Squad 496 easier. They also met Shane Johnson, who has heard of Ash from his achievement of saving his sister from her death. Shane was jealous of Ash for such achievement and forms a rivalry with him. He develops a crush on Elizabeth, but Elizabeth slaps him for such thing, stating that she has a soft spot for the person that she cares about the most, her brother Ash, and not for someone else.
