After walking some distance, in silent communication, Chen stopped and pointed in a direction that would take them off the path they had been following. “I think this is a better way, if we should be followed, it won’t be as easy if we take the deer trail. Someone would have to know the signs they don’t shout out to leisure hikers. Kit nodded and they changed direction, Chen leading. It would be single file till they were clear of the park trail.
“interesting find” said Kit. They had been walking for about a mile further into the dense woodland, and had come across a clearing. Taking a closer look at the bike, they agreed that it hadn’t been there that long. the buildings in and around the clearing, looked abandoned, they wouldn’t know for sure until they explored some more.
“You ready for this” Kit looked at Chen May’s hat and wondered, how Chen thought that hat would go unnoticed. They were supposed to be hikers off for an afternoon adventure. Chen’s hat made her look like she was a juvenile delinquent, skipping school. Chen could hear Kit’s unspoken concern in her voice, but decided to ignore it. After all, if she was to be an innocent, she should look like one. “I am, old girl, let’s head, you can lead the way..
“Alright you two,” said the voice in their ear, “remember you are off on an afternoon hike, taking advantage of the nice weather” “Did one of you think to bring a camera?” Both girls whipped out their cell phones, “we will make do with these” said Chen.
“Head for the abandoned buildings, watch for strangers, and be careful, the fog could roll in once you reach an altitude beyond the main park trails” They heard the sound of a chair and then Yumi’s voice was back, “sorry wanted to adjust the monitor so I could keep track of your movements. I will be here till Rosie comes in to relief me. Be careful”
There was a crisp click as Yumi signed off, leaving them to continue their trek up the trail, making their way towards the less used parts of the park.
Yumi and Rosie
The warehouse looked empty, no one seemed to be around. It was a little too quiet, there was no animal or birds sounds, and they are surrounded by a lot of forest.
Then she spotted the man, off to the side, looking towards the empty warehouse. Not wanting to meet up with him, or to give up her vantage point, she instead, took his picture to send back to Yumi.
Yumi heard her phone, but let it go to voice mail. She Rosie and Kit were busy looking at the map, trying to determine what was around the warehouse that Chen-May had found. If it was urgent, she knew Chen would send the alert to her phone. Technology had come a long way, Yumi was the top engineer in her field, she had been teamed up with Chen years ago, their ability and know how when it came to electronics and engineering was well known. Both excelled and had proven themselves over the years to be formidable operators.
Chen would maintain surveillance, and move on to meet up with their contact person from the other agency.
Chen had made her way to the area she was to meet her contact. Her martial art skills, meant that she was able to move silently through the woodlands. Silently she watched as the woman, also silent in her movements, made her way to the meeting place.
The old lookout was a good place … the woman had chosen wisely. From where she sat, no one could creep up or surprise her. Chen May smiled in approval. The meeting would be a good one. Meanwhile she knew Yumi and Kit would be working out the next step. Time to meet her contact.
Yumi, aka Jesse is an Our Generation doll she is related to Rosie
