Dud.."Don't forget to check in at the office, it's been almost a week", a voice said, as Tarry slammed shut the door of the vehicle, making his way towards the entrance of the hospital."Welcome..", a programmed voice spoke, as made his way through the glass doors towards the reception."How may I be of assistance to you, sir?", the receptionist asked, as he stood at the counter."I'm looking for a nurse named Kate, or Catherine; she was in charge of my ward", he replied."I'm sorry, we don't have any nurse named Kate or Catherine here, maybe you'd like to see the doctor instead", she said, offering an alternative."Alright, that will do", Tarry said, opting for the alternative."Name sir..", She said, requesting for his name, as her hands typed something on a holographic screen."Tarry..", he replied.…..SOME MINUTES LATER.."You must be Mr Tarry", a baritone voice spoke, yanking Tarry from his half aware state."Yes I am", he said, putting a hand forward, to secure a handshake.We
Pat.. "Hey..Gunther!", Tarry hollered, as he brought his sleeping friend from the dream world, with a pat. "The sun's out; go freshen up, we'll be leaving soon", Tarry said, leaving the room, as soon as Gunther opened his eyes. "Does this dude ever sleep?", Gunther grumbled, as he dawdled out of bed. ... "You should be careful though, the attackers may have info of their victims..", Sean and Tarry talked in the living room, as Sean lectured. "So, you have to be careful when making your move; we don't know who we're dealing with here", he advised. "And, the gang's no more..", he added silently. "I understand you Sean, that's why after long, hard thoughts, I'm calling you back from retirement..", Tarry replied. "I'm reassembling the team back..", he said, in a rushed tone. "What?!! We've been disbanded for three years, and you expect everyone to just come back together?", Sean asked, shocked at Tarry's words. "I of a fact, is not returning..", Sean said with strong conviction.
"I heard the Thelvonas are already making their move", Talia said. The vassals gathered in an underground base, as they exchanged information they gathered over time. "Not only them, the Grindines also", Rai added. "Well, there is a shift in the balance of power now that Camilla has a complete set of vassals", Verner said. "It's only normal to expect such response and disturbances", he added. "What I'm scared of is this silence." "There have been movements, but not enough to cause an alarm; it's almost like a calm before the storm", he said, with a pensive look. Silence engulfed the atmosphere, as everybody wore a worried expression on their faces. "Ahem..let's not ruin this moment of celebration with issues like this", Verner said, lightening up the mood. "We can worry about this after the celebrations", he added. "Right now, let's make our newest member feel welcomed", he said with a smile. ... SOME OBSCURE LOCATION "What do you mean she escaped", a voice screamed out.
Vrooooom! The jeep jerked to a halt; the engines coming to a rest. "Where are we?", Christine asked, as a big yawn escaped her mouth. "Welcome to Tender Rose", Palmer said with a smile. "We're here already?", Christine asked. "Well, you slept all the way here", Palmer said, revealing a grin. "You'd love it here", she assured, as the doors of the vehicle swung open. "I really hope so", Christine said smiling, exiting the jeep. "Woah", she exclaimed, as the full glamour of the estate came into her view. "Told you you'll love it", Palmer said grinning, as she dismounted the vehicle. "Heard you slept all the way through", Falcone said with a cheeky smile. "Shouldn't have told you", Palmer said with facepalm, as Christine's face grew red with embarrassment. "You look....", a male voice remarked, drawing attention to Christine's asymmetrical short black spandex gown, with a black peep toe ankle strap platform, which complimented the dress. "Just say stunning Flint, and making t
SEAN'S HOUSE "Y'know Tarry, I'm not into recon anymore; it's part of the reason I left the city", Sean said. "I'm retired..", he added, as the atmosphere stilled at his speech. "I'm sorry Tarry, I can't help you", he apologized. "Hey Sean, you're joking right?", Gunther asked, getting up from his seat, as Sean looked away from his direction. "Sean, this is Leo we're talking about..", he continued, grabbing him by the shirt. "I'm sorry Gunther, I can't help", he refused, gently removing Gunther's hand from his shirt. "Hey Sean, you seem to have forgotten four years ago..", a voice said, as Tarry raised his head. "No Tarry! That was a different case, Sean retorted, moving towards him. "How about eleven years ago? Huh? Was that different too?!", He asked, standing up to meet him. "Have you forgotten the code?" "No, I've—" "It's Leo we're talking about..", Tarry said, as his voice turned sober. "Have you forgotten our promise?", he asked, almost on the verge of tears. "Did yo
"Where is my new arrival?", a feminine voice questioned. "If they left on schedule, they should be here by now, ma'am", a frail masculine voice responded. "Well, where are they now?", she asked, trolling down a hall. "Hey, don't put that there...", she said, admonishing a worker, as she walked past. "Get me Falcone..", she ordered. "And track Flint's phone", she added. "Unlike him to be late.." "Looks like she beat me to it", she said to herself, chuckling weakly. "Hey.. Verner told me you called", a tall young man said, walking towards her. She squinted her eyes in disgust, at his demeanor. "Honestly, you're helpless Falcone..", she exasperated, with a sigh. "They're in Beyleed", a voice reported. "Listen..", she said, cutting to the chase. "My new parcel is on the road, but it's being delayed by some idiots", she explained. "Could you please get it for me?", she requested. "And tell them I said hi", she added with a grin. "Of course", he replied with a smile, as he le
SEAN'S HOUSE "How have you been Sean", Tarry said, initiating a conversation, as the room was once more illuminated again. "You know..alive and well, away from the city and noise", he said, with a hint of humor. "And the family?", Tarry asked further. "Ah—away on vacation", he answered. "Beer?", Sean asked Tarry, as they settled down at the dining table. "No, a hot coffee would do", he requested. "Seems you've taken a liking to this weather", Sean said, as they both chuckled at his remark. The drizzles continued to platter the roof of the building. "I would like a glass of beer", Gunther said, raising his hands, interrupting the jolly duo. "Or not..", he cowered under the cold gazes shot at him. "So, how have you been?", Sean asked Tarry, as he got the coffee machine working. "Well y'know, it's just the bar and Ol' me..", he said, with a faint chuckle. "And Leo?", Sean asked, pouring the hot coffee into mugs, adding honey to sweeten. "Well, the kid's always been a trouble
Clip Clop.. Dusk fell, as a pair of stilettos strike the floor with a loud tap; a feminine figure strode elegantly out of Olive Hospital. "You ready to move?", a masculine voice spoke for a cyber jeep fashioned like a lambo truck, parked at the lot. "Yeah" Dud.. She entered the vehicle slamming the door. "This is dangerous y'know", the male warned, looking her directly into the eyes. "Are you ready?", he asked, seeking assurance. "Ready or not, we're doing this; so start the car", she replied, averting her gaze as she looked forward. "Alright, let's do this", he said, half smiling. Vrr.. The vehicle roared at ignition, as he pulled into the road; with night fast approaching. .... "They're moving out boss", a voice anonymously reported. "It's time to clear out the farm..", a voice spoke through the comms. "Yes boss", came the reply. Crack!! "Boss orders; eliminate the targets", he said, cocking a carbine rifle; while dishing orders to the rest, at the rear of a van. "
