Chapter 23: Suit Up


Max watches Sara with some interest as she looks through guns of various types, including a Vulcan HMB70, which she straps to her back. A weapon descended from the AK47, designed for taking down tanks.


"You're quite curious, why would a pretty person like yourself have a problem with the big shots? I'm fairly sure, meeting you, that you're the cause of their patrols of late..." He narrows his eyes, as a earthshaking rumbling grows, a tank is traveling past on the road.


They wait until the noise and shaking subsides, and then Max continues.


"So what's your secret? Did you kill somebody? Because I haven't seen a man hunt this big in a long time."


Sara quietly takes a belt with several hooks and pouches, and straps it on.


"I told you, it's none of your buisness."


He smiles. "It isn't huh?" He walks up to her, and wraps his arms around her waist.


"I can't just let a girl as pretty as you risk her life like that. I'd be more than willing to help you."


Sara squirms, his embrace unwelcome and stirring her anger.


"Let go! I don't need help, let go of me!"


He chuckles. "Wasn't your name Sara? Yeah, that's it. Sara, in this world, even if you are strong, it's best to have freinds you can count on. Even if you don't want their help, your freinds should always stick their necks out for you. No one can do it all alone."


Sara suddenly and violently snarls. "Freinds... are nothing more than cowards who run away when you need them the most! I don't need anyone, I don't need your help!!!" She rips free of his arms, spins around, and slaps him across the face. He sails into a crate a few feet away, and coughs. He lowers his head, his hair obscuring his face.


"Fine, but one day, you'll see I'm right."


A flare of violent red flares in her blue eyes for just a moment, and then she turns and stalks out of the warehouse. Max smiles.


At least I have a nice photograph. She didn't even notice.


He smiles at her retreating figure.


"What an interesting girl. Sara, I truely believe you've aquired my interest."


One of his freinds walks up to him.


"Don't tell me you like her, boss?"


He smiles in a coy fashion. "I very much so. I hope she'll get to where she needs to."



Gunther, in full body armor observes his operation in progress. Helicopters now patrol the air, at night they unleash searchlights which make an otherwise darkened alley see the day. Tanks stand guard at every exit of the city, and already toll booths are in operation. The airline security has been heightened, and now virtually no way out remains.


And if all of that fails, well, there's still him. She may be a born fighter, but EX0L8 cannot compete with his many years of battle experience. Either way, for her, it's checkmate.


"How is your operation going? Have you secured the city?" The Director asks impaitently.


"It's fine. Hopefully we'll find her before something bad happens."


"Alright, I'll leave in your... capable hands."
