MASTIFI The Ancient Chronicles
Suddenly all of the emergency strobe lights begin flashing. An announcement begins over the Public Announcement system. “Code Griffin! Code Griffin! Please remain calm. All attending personnel, please report to 5B2, I repeat 5B2”. Kendra looks up at the door. She reads the door out loud, “Wing 5, Section B, Room 2!” Joe looks around the room in desperation, searching for an escape. The door opens and Mega is standing in the doorway to their room with a serious look on his face. He grabs Kendra’s hand and says, “Are you two waiting for an invitation? Come on, let’s go!!!” Mega then passes gas masks to Kendra and Joe. Kendra replies, “How did you even find us? How are we getting out of here?!” Joe added, “Are we being extracted?” Mega responds, “No, we’re on our own. Their friends are higher than mine; so, let’s be quick and quiet. Follow me.” After turning the corner, Mega holds up a fist to signal to Kendra and Joe to stop. Mega listens for the guard's footsteps to get close enough before he throws a smoke grenade. They follow Mega through the smoke-filled corridor as the armed guards fall to the ground in a coughing frenzy. Mega attaches a device to a keypad that unlocks the freight elevator. Once the door opens, Mega says to Kendra and Joe, “You’re on your own from here. I’ll buy you some time. There’s a black SUV outside waiting for you both.” Kendra replies, “No, we stay together!” Joe responds, “Ken, we don’t have time, we have to go”. Joe grabs her hand and pulls her into the elevator. Mega presses the button the elevator ascends to the parking level above.
After Kendra kicked off her boots, the smooth caress of Lake Andrea surrounded her. She began to think about how good it felt to actually be free of the guards, training and tests. But unknown to her, she wasn’t really free yet. Joe quietly followed her into the lake from the opposite side. It was too late for Kendra to retreat before being dunked into the water head first. After coming up for air, a thick muscular arm wrapped around her neck. As Kendra regains consciousness, she realizes that she is being carried over Joe’s shoulder onto the shore. She could barely see through the blindfold or hear from the ringing in her ears.
