Hello! Today we continue with the fifth part of book 3. Hope you enjoy!
As the sun rose behind Plum Island the roof of a seeming abandoned building opened, its heavy steel doors rising towards the sky. The silhouette of an Augusta Westland AW39 slowly rose out of the building and headed towards New York.
Mr. Smith didn’t care much for flying, but he made an exception for the helicopter that Warren had given him. It was easily the nicest vehicle he had ever been in, and whenever he flew in it, he was always reminded that some people just had way too much money. Initially, the chopper could seat 12, but Mr. Smith had taken out the rear three seats to make room for his Ducati, his preferred method of transport.
As he looked out of the window at the passing water, a voice came through his headset.
“Mr. Smith, sir. We have eyes on Analia. She is currently at her apartment in SoHo, but you are not going to believe this, she is with Jonni! I didn’t see that coming. But they are alone in her apartment, and we have secured a landing area on the roof just above the penthouse. It looks like we might get lucky and procure two targets in one stop today. Awaiting further instructions, sir. Simon out.”
Mr. Smith smiled as he re-positioned the microphone in front of his mouth, “Touchdown in 3 minutes. Luck is for people who don’t plan ahead Simon. Meet me at the chopper. We will go in together.”
Analia was just coming out of her bedroom as she heard the loud thud on the roof. She looked at Jonni with an inquisitive stare. “It wasn’t me,” said Jonni, “It sounded like it was above us. Weird, right?”
“Yeah, I guess it is just the…” Analia stopped suddenly as a loud knock on the door interrupted her train of thought.
Being highly trained fighters both Jonni and Analia were quick to take a defensive stance. “Oh, I see we have something in common” Analia laughed.
“Overreacting?” Jonni asked.
“No, silly. Training.” Analia chuckled. “It is probably just a neighbor wondering what the noise is. I think we can relax. I like your style, though.” And she headed for the door.
Jonni sat on the edge of the kitchen table as Analia opened the door to see two men in suits.
“Good morning Analia, Jonni,” said Mr. Smith in his usual monotone voice, “Do you mind if Simon and I here have a word with both of you please?”
“I…umm…wait how do you know my name… wait I understand that one but how do you know Jonni’s? I just met him a few hours ago.” Analia stuttered.
“Relax. It will all become clear to both of you very quickly if you just hear us out” replied Mr. Smith.
“Are you the police?” Analia asked.
“Well not exactly. We are here to do what they can’t, and we need you and Jonni to help us” Mr. Smith answered in a sincere voice that made Analia feel comfortable, and curious, enough to let the men in.
