It 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.
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.
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.
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.
