jemma 2.6.18It was not the best light, but Jemma was determined to find the place on the map that Rosie had mentioned to her earlier.    She had been distracted by an incoming call, and now she was having to focus.

In the background, she heard voices, but refused to let them distract her further from her quest.  She was being called, frowning, she looked down at her phone, it was silent.

Jan 14_023

Looking up at the monitor, she saw where the voices were coming from.  It looked like a deserted waiting station, maybe at an old now defunct railway line. She knew the feed was recording, and had to decide to watch, or wait and play it back when she had more time.

Deciding that her current task needed her attention, she bend down to study the map again.  No sooner had her eyes left the screen when she heard  the sound of gun shots.

Jan 14_026

Why was Xsa lying down, had she been shot, who was the stranger she was with, he seemed to be trying to make her comfortable.  Why hadn’t Kit gone down, where was Chen-May?  She had only just looked down.. She knew while the taping was active, there was no tampering with the monitor.. She would have to wait to know more.

Jan 14_019

 

The picture on the screen changed, she could see the fog was rolling in, the train was off the tracks, darn, she wished she could focus in closer.  Sighing, she returned to the task at hand and the map that was patiently waiting for her full attention.

Stay tuned

There was a lot of giggling but Jemma managed to get the outfit on that Rosie had sent her.  She couldn’t help but think that this would be fun, if some-what odd.  All her medical studies, and earned degrees were what landed her this assignment, but… as she looked down at her nurse’s uniform, she was going to be an assistant to a Vet.

Jemma 1.24.Rosie

Funnier still was that Rosie was going to be her boss, and putting her skills and past experiences to good use as the specialist in the psychology of pampered pets.  No matter their size.  As Rosie came in, she noticed that even with the change of clothes, she still wore her pearls.

Both the stethoscope and Rosie’s ear phones had been doctored to take in all the sounds around them, and transmit them back to the surveillance room.  They had the ability to do visual tracks as well, but both Jemma and Rosie could also send back images as they saw fit.

Jemma 1.24 RosieRosie looked down at her rubber boots, and laughed, “do you think they go with the pearls” she quipped …  Jemma’s footwear was also water proofed, they had electronic receivers in the heels and small cameras in the toes.  Nothing was being left to chance.  Everything big or small, meaningful, or plain boring, it would all be recorded and kept in chronological order till input could be reviewed and relevant information kept till it was needed.

For now they had to make sure everything was stored in a way that they could retrieve it at a later day.  What was insignificant now, could mean a lot at a future date.

They were not trained to work, their work was their lives.  Working and everything that went with it, was their reason for living, they loved what they did.  Every day was a challenge and a new opportunity to hone their skills.  Training was living.  The more they learned, the more they thrived.

After inspecting each other, and making sure their communication tools were working like they should be, they prepared to head out.

Rosie smiled, “finally another adventure in the field, not just behind her desk coordinating the technicalities and logistics of the sting, she was actually going to be able to work in a field she loved, advanced healing for animals”  Jemma with her experience as a military surgeon who had worked inside enemy lines often under the most primitive conditions would be there to work along side of her..  Yes, a good partnership indeed.

stay tuned.

Jemma 1.17.18Jemma was tired, she had been hours reviewing the pictures that Kit and ChenMay had sent back, looking them over one at a time, seeing if she could see anything that stood out.  Yumi would come in later and they would put them up on the big screen and review them one by one all over again.

It had been later in the day, it was eerie in the sense that the places looked like they had just been abandoned.  Where did the people go, why did they leave.  Chen’s contact had taken up one of the old rooms where she had found a desk to work from.

Jan 13_012

This was where they were to meet up and exchange information, and views about what each had  come up with.  Xsa was a doll herself, only she stayed pretty much in adult character, it was what she had been designed for.  When it came to the world of “dolls” they all shared the same special skills, and abilities that escaped most human adults.

If at one time they had understood and been able to connect to the realities/capabilities of the doll world,  as they matured they lost the ability to stay connected.

Jemma’s thoughts were interrupted by the ringing of a bell, someone was approaching.  Her eyes caught the glint of steel on the hand cuffs she saw on the table.  Quickly she closed down her reader, to get up to go towards the main rooms.

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.

Jan 14_004

“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.

stay tuned.

“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.

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.

Jan 13_004

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.

Jesse aka Yumi 1.13.18

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.

Jesse aka Yumi and KitChen would maintain surveillance, and move on to meet up with their contact person from the other agency.

Jan 13_010

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.

Jan 13_007

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.

Stay tuned

Fog rolls in

Not the kind of day to be out walking, thought Kit.  She looked around her with a pensive look, as she scanned the lounge, she saw that her friends had not arrived yet.  Leonie now lived a distance away, having gone to live with a military couple not too far from the base.  She doubted she would show up, especially that the radio was announcing a flash freeze.

” Hey Kit” Jemma called out…. turning towards the fireplace, Kit saw that Jemma was nestled in a chair with her book.  “Gosh I didn’t see you come in” Kit said as she walked over to where Jemma was sitting.  “Truth be told, I didn’t see you either” smiled Jemma,” was busy reading about my next assignment, I hear you got yours the other day?” It was more like a statement, rather than a question.  Kit smiled at her friend, but didn’t answer, she waved as she saw Rosie heading their way.

Both girls sang out a greeting as Rosie drew nearer.  “Hi Rosie, you made it across the grounds, or did you use the underground walkway?” Jemma asked as Kit moved to find a chair to pull up next to the fireplace.

“Neither” laughed Rosie, as she went over to stand near Jemma.  “I was in the library, doing some research.”  Jemma and Kit looked at each other with grins on their faces, they knew how Rosie like to make sure she researched all the details that would be required for the different projects/operations to  proceed effectively …  they lovingly called her Ms Efficiency, not only when talking about her when she was not around, but sometimes directly to her, when in teasing moods.

“Leonie called, and is not coming,” said Rosie, “so let us grab coffee, tea, whatever you like, so we can then settle down to looking at some maps and do some brain storming.

Rosie looked out at the snow-covered landscape.  She had a lot on her mind, by now she knew that the “girls” were aware of her return.  She paced her room, thinking of the directives she had been given during her visit to headquarters.  Each participant at the base under her supervision had been well vetted and trained for the assignments they would be given.  Still, she needed to plan out how and when to  begin each of the projects.

Kit she knew was itching to get out and start integrating her “character” into the setting she was being sent into.  Maybe she should start with Kit, they would need to meet up and arrange wardrobe, and a meeting place, for briefings.  Kit would also have time to develop her background story, and to work into the character so that it was  a “natural” fit, part of her persona.

Kit and ChenMay 2

Plus part of what Kit had in her favour was her close friendship with Chen-May, they had studied the martial arts together,  her long time friendship also meant that she knew a lot about the customs and ways of the Asian community.  Rosie had still to decide if Chen-May would be assigned to the same project, or to another one that was happening on the west coast.  She was waiting for another briefing from her superior.

Satisfied on her decision for Kit to begin preparations, she reached for the intercom.

stay tuned.

Rosie’s return

ChenMay and Leonie reading July 5 2017

The house was quiet, too quiet.  The girls could feel the quiet.  “Silly isn’t it that the quiet can be so unnerving” the girls were whispering, yet it felt like they were shouting. Then they heard it, the distant sound of music. As it always happened,  it played a few bars and stopped.  “Rosie is back!” both girls said in unison.

They hadn’t seen her return, there wasn’t a car in the driveway, when and how had she returned, why was everything so quiet.  Did the rest of the girls know that Rosie was back.  Without another spoken word, both girls put down their book, and headed for the hallway.
