As the boats maneuvered itself towards a cave, Trisha gave everyone their preferable weapons, as did John in the other boat. They were ready to invade.
The boats opened their hoods. Everyone got off the boat, as they followed each other towards a metal door.
“Ready to open the door?” asked Jack.
A creepy silence came over the room. Then the others said, “Ready!”
Jack slammed open the door. Everyone looked around. It was a dark room, with not much lighting, but the lighting was enough to see the door ahead. But, the silence was getting creepy. The group was tensing up.
A metal dagger luckily clashed with the metal armor and not the skin that a reinforcement was wearing. Split-second reactions took over, as Jack used his sling and Trisha swung her whip right at the spot it happened.
They both missed. Then they realized that the person doing it was throwing daggers. The group was now red-alert, knowing that a hit in the right place could knock out a person.
Jack turned on his flashlight. He saw a man in a blue suit, as they both jumped. He called out, “He’s right here!”
John swiftly ran and used his momentum to throw a major punch. The man was knocked out cold. John took his dagger and passed it to Karen for her to throw it if needed.
“Well, looks like you passed the first test. But there are many more you must pass to even make it close to uncovering our plan,” a voice said in a loudspeaker.
“Who are you?”
“I am Icarus, a reincarnation from the ashes. Just like a phoenix.”
