Story: A Long Night (cont.)

February 29, 2008

Justin shakes his head, remembering when someone managed to hack his armour and chase him around with it, then pushes forward up the train. “So what am I looking for Nick?”

“Intelligence in this region suggests that we might be looking at another biological bomb built to turn more people into monsters.”

“Different from the heroes thing I’m using right?”

“Bingo, but this is more than just a search and destroy mission. Our boys in the field reported back that Dr. Basch is likely the one who designed the bomb. I’m piping you information to your HUD.”

“Har har Nick,” Bear responds apathetically, “har har.”

“And since this guy know more about what’s going with this whole ‘monsters heroes thing’ than anyone…”

“You’re looking for me to try and trace it.”

“You got it. Alright kid, by our calculations you’ve got 5 minutes before it’s so deep in the mountains we can’t get it out the other side in time. If the train makes it through the mountain and explodes we’re going to have some serious problems on our hands. And by our hands, I mean yours.”

Justin rolls his eyes and stops at the door to the 4th cabin. The carts up to this point have been empty, a few crates with not much of anything on them, but Bear can hear voices on the other side of this door. “Adrianna, can you scan for people in the room?”

My technology base does not allow me to scan beyond a 25 foot radius.

“Ain’t that a shame.” Fury says, again with a smile audibly creeping onto his face.

Bear decides he doesn’t like Fury listening in on his conversations as it affords him more opportunities than necessary to get in his one liners “Alright, give me the-”

There appear to be 6 occupants all carrying mid to heavy machine guns and wearing tech gear. They have formed in an ambush position.

“Why?” Bear asks his voice perking up a bit, curious as to who they were waiting for.

By my best calculations given my limited ability to scan the room, the tech they are wearing has likely notified them of your presence.

“You know what great? Stealth mode.”

“Fury, shut up.”
