Richard had finished his coffee as the rest had scattered to their rooms or the armory to get their gear or extra ammunition. Richard put his cup down and snapped his fingers. Instantly he appeared in his room, still sitting in the cafeteria chair. He could return it later.
He stood up and walked over to the gun rack. He crouched beside it and started pulling out magazines for his gun and putting them in his backpack. given Camron's ability to time travel he might end up somewhen without access to the ammo he'd stored in a cave earlier that day.
Richard finished loading the last clip and put it in his backpack. He wouldn't use them unless he had to.
He turned back to the weapons rack and picked up a bowie knife. in close quarters he was deadly with a knife. not that he ever fought close quarters with anyone except in training. He preferred to snipe from a distance.
Done with his preperations he slid the knife into his belt and stood up. Camron had told them to be at the landing pad when they had grabbed their gear. Richard didn't intend to be late.
Richard snapped his fingers and he appeared by the landing pad. Richard saw Camron and Nick talking to a man in a black suit and shades. Janette and Shari were standing a short distance away. Meanwhile a chopper on the landing pad was firing up its engines.
Richard walked over to where Camron and Nick were. "Agent 213," he said. "Care to fill me in?"
"You're protecting a cargo of frozen creatures," he said. "Particle readings from them show the same kind of atomic structure used for teleportation and time travel. With slight variations."
"Are they likely to unthaw?" asked Nick. "Cause that could be lethal."
"Not likely," said Agent 213. "they're being transported from the drill site in an armored transport truck that has a modified freezer unit built into the trailer."
"Understood, Sir," said Camron. "Wheels up in two people!"
Richard turned and walked over to the chopper and climbed inside. The others followed him.
"Get this bird in the air," Camron told the pilot as he sat down and put a headset on.
The pilot gave a thumbs up and a few seconds later the chopper lifted off and headed north.
"Let's get this over with," said Nick.
"Hear hear," said Richard. "Let's do this.ns 188.8.131.52da2
