Agent Zero's office was in the last floor of the building. It was anything I expected, wide and white. Aakalain mong nasa langit ka na kapag tumapak ka sa opisina niya.
She offered us to sit, pero walang umupo sa amin. We were too agitated to sit. A trip to her office was another lost of our precious time, but we just couldn't argue with her, could we? Kahit pa nga hindi buo ang tiwala namin sa kanya bilang mukhang may kinalaman din siya sa mga nangyayari bilang si Helena Soriano.
Agent Zero leaned on her table and looked directly at me. "I believe you already know where the diamond is."
"I do." Walang gatol kong sagot. Ramdam kong pinagtinginan ako nina Justin at Alexander.
"Good. Then we have nothing to worry about. Kailangan mo lang makuha 'yon."
I smirked and shook my head. Ridiculous. "No."
Lumukot ang mukha niya, hindi na naitago ang pagkadismaya. "You're being stubborn. Your family's lives are at stake! Bakit ayaw mong makipag-c
Pinuri ko sa isip ang galing ng Gemini sa paghahanap ng ginamit naming mapa ng lugar. The place was accurately the same as the one on the map they obtained from some 'resources'.There were three buildings: one was the main building that formerly housed the offices. Nasa gitna iyon ng lugar. Beside it on the eastern part was the second laboratory. Nasa west ang unang lab. Sabi ni Alexander, maaaring nasa isa sa dalawang laboratory ang mga 'hostages'.I was being objective to focus more on the mission. Mukhang ganun din ang ginawa ng kapatid ko.Anyway, the first team (the Gemini, Agents 67 and 91) entered the main building; Xander and his group on the west lab; and kaming apat sa east lab. The teenagers played their part as well. They divided themselves into smaller groups of three and dispersed. Then the hunt began.Justin led our team while I brought the rear as we penetrated the east lab. There was no noise except for the slight sound our steps m
We immediately ran to the main building where Xander said they found the hostages (I was still trying to be objective). Nadatnan namin siya sa isang silid na nakaambang sa likuran ng main building kung nasaan ang tambakan ng mga lumang laboratory and hospital equipment."Where are they?" Bungad ni Dominic. Lalapit sana siya sa bintanang kinaroroonan ni Xander, pero pinigilan ko siya. Baka masira niya ang diskarte ng The Hunter."Andoon sila sa gitna ng tambak ng mga sirang gamit." Sagot naman nito nang hindi inaalis ang tingin sa telescopic scope ng sniper rifle niya. "Strapped on an operating table with wires connecting to heart monitors and bags of IV fluid injected to each of them. They're alive, but unconscious."So they were treated like the man we saw in a laboratory on the third building. Anong gagawin sa kanila?"Thank you. I got a picture." Sabi ko at pumihit patungo sa pinto."Saan ka pupunta?" Pigil sa akin ni Justin."I'll
I revved up my black Maserati at the same time the song "My Immortal" reached crescendo. The music kept me alert while driving. Mula kasi noong insidente sa lumang laboratory, madalas na akong mawala sa sarili. It wasn't remote viewing. Hindi na nga gumana 'yon mula ng gabing ‘yun, eh. I just...felt lost.It had been two weeks since that night. Apat na araw akong walang malay at nasa ospital. Sa loob ng apat na araw na 'yon, ang daming nangyari. My stepfather was brought to jail for homicide. Umamin siyang sangkot siya at si Raphael sa pagkamatay ng mga magulang ko. Kinupkop daw niya ako out of guilt at araw-araw niya raw pinagbabayaran ang kasalanang iyon. My stepmother didn't bear the news well. Mabuti na lang, nasa ospital pa siya kaya't nabantayan siya ng mga doktor nang malaman ang balita.Raphael was dead. He was cremated two days after para maiwasan na ring pagkainteresan siya ng mga bampira. Although malabong bumalik agad si Jacques Havillard sa ban
