What a cliche. I thought. Another team of super humans fighting against my super humans. Annabell and I arrive in the situation room Prescott is dealing with the situation calmly but there is panic in the others around him.
"ASIO told us of their arrival as they attacked." informed Prescott.
"Who are they?" asked Annabell.
"They are mercenaries who go under the title The International Guard. They sell their services to any country who can pay for." explained Prescott. "Putting it simply they're trouble."
"Do Ki-Yama and the others know who they're up against?" I ask.
"No but they have just been attacked telepathically." Prescott's tone hasn't changed since we began. He's so damn stiff upper lipped I'd bet he staples it when he goes to bed.
"I gave them psychic dampners. In fact I gave them everything. How did the Fijian military find out what we were doing?" I ask.
"I suggest we work that out later and deal with the current situation. It seems our trojan cyclone has been discovered." Prescott points to a satellite picture of the cyclone created by Vortex breaking up.
"The telepath's in control of Vortex." I deduce.
"Yes."Prescott pulls up the Vortex's ECG readings. He points to the recent surge in brain activity. "Vortex doesn't think that much."
"Who's there for the International Guard?" I ask.
Prescott changes the screen in front of us and give me the ASIO intel.
"Psykan we already know is there. We have pictures of the whole team coming in as we speak." relays Prescott. "Mr Haynes is it here, yet." requests Prescott.
"Its here Sir. You have it now." responds Mr Haynes.
"Oh crap not him." I gripe.
"True but look at her. Is that who I think it is?" asks Prescott with a sneaky smile.
"Mr Prescott I do believe your right." I reply. "I think this is going to be easier than we both thought."
I leave to suit up. Annabell follows me to the lair. I get to the storeroom door which will open into the lair and she stops me.
"That was Chroma wasn't it?" she asks.
"Yes." I reply.
Annabell screws up her face. Begins to say something and then walks off in a huff.
"Annabell I don't need this right now." I call after her. She doesn't respond. I go into the lair and suit up.
