I awaken from my short nap, I looked over to see Helena sound asleep.. I began to think hard about searching for Ada.. I pulled my phone out and went into Google Maps.. Since Tokyo is a large city I'll split it up into 3 sections, and visit key points of interest and search them carefully.. Since they're points of interests the infected may horde there putting Helena and I lived at great risk.. But it's a risk we have to take....
"ETA, is now 10 minutes" Sergeant said over the intercom..
Helena and I were wide awake, I began to explain my plan to her. She was willing to go though with it. So we carefully divided the city of Tokyo..
The blonde woman is now awake, she checks her cellphone for the time before it died.. Only 20 minutes until she touch downed in Okinawa.
"Now I have to think like Paul, to protect him.. How would he search for Ada in Tokyo? I know that he breaks things up and carefully analyze them from the most important info to the least important.... So I'm guessing he'll split Tokyo up into sections, and search the most important areas first.." She thought to herself..
The plane landed, she was in Okinawa Japan for the first time. Since she didn't have any luggage but her own handbag, she exited the airport, outside, the bright lights from neon billboards caught the eye of any newcomer to this beautiful city. People and different exotic cars paraded the streets.. The blonde woman needed some type of transportation to navigate the city and later find her way to Tokyo.. She spots an unoccupied blue sports car and walks over to it. She checks her surroundings, no one was watching her so she quickly lock picks the cars door with the pick provided from her handbag.. Inside the car were leather seats, with black interior and surprisingly a GPS system.. She programs the GPS to find the nearest hotel to stay, even if it was to be for a short time. She drives off to the Takada inn that was only 15 miles away from the airport.
Once there, she checks into an inexpensive suit and begin to enjoy her short time of relaxation before preparing for departure..
Helena and I could see the bright lights of Okanawa through the jet's window, they illuminated in the cold night skies. We gradually descended, gracefully pushing through clouds obscuring our view of the city after minutes of plowing through clouds we could see the airstrip for landing, sergeant Byrd eased us down without any mistakes. Helena and I exited the Jet and sergeant Byrd followed behind us..
"From here, you'll be in the hands of the US Navy, they'll send you over to Tokyo by land, before you leave, is there anything that you need?" Byrd said to us..
"A map of Tokyo would be nice, a tourist map to be exact.. We're not too familiar with the city and it would helpful" I said to him.
"A map you say? Hold on, gimme a minute"
Byrd goes back up the hatch of the planes and within seconds exits the hatch holding what looked like two sheets of colored paper, he handed one to me and the other to Helena.
"We're required to have a map of the areas we cover, both tourist and general landscaping maps. So I guess you two have the best of both worlds now" he said while chuckling.
Helena smiled back at Byrd, I nodded signaling that I was thankful.. I didn't laugh or smile, ever since Jill died my sense of humor followed behind her..
A black Dodge Charger pulled up next to the Jet, I assumed that they were our ride to Tokyo.
"Well, this is were we go our separate ways, I wish you two the best of luck and I hope you return back home safely after completing your mission." Byrd said to us..
We loaded into the car and drove off, leaving the airstrip. The two Navy Seal operatives driving kept quiet and we did the same, it was said to be a 30 minute drive from the outskirts of Okinawa to Tokyo so I took these final minutes to finally construct the searching plan I used a pen to divide up Tokyo on both maps and stared key points that we had to search.
"Location #1: The Tokyo Imperial palace, a castle built upon ruins of destroyed temples by war.. Now it's surrounded by traditional Japanese Gardens. It was said to have rooms for guest to relax so Ada could be using this as a hide out until extraction comes or to plan a escape.
Location #2: The Golden Pavilion, The former house of Shogun ; Shikiaga Yoshimitsu, It was burned down in 1950 but was rebuilt by a monk who was obsessed with the Sh0gun. Another potential hide out spot.
Location #3, Our final place to check.. The Himieji Castle, One of few attractions that survived the atomic bombing of WWII.."
then I used my PDA to mark these locations, just in case we lose the maps somehow.. Time flew by and we came across the boarder line between Okinawa and Tokyo. It was barricaded with USMC soldiers prat rolling to maintain order.. We entered the gate that led us to Tokyo.
"It never ends.." I thought to myself, I could see the smoke that inhabited the skies from burning buildings and the odor.. That same odor from being deployed in china now resides in Tokyo..
"We're finally here, not what I expected on my first trip to Tokyo.." Helena said to me.
"Yea, same here.. I always thought.... Never mind"
"No, Say it.. How do you expect for us to make it out of this place alive and complete our mission without communicating?"
"It was nothing, I was just thinking about Jill.. That's all.."
"We already discussed this, she's probably smiling down upon you know for still doing your job after... You know.."
"Yea, you're right.. Lets go so we can get this over wi---."
My phone began to ring, it was a text message stating that someone used one of my credit cards recently to check out of a Hotel in Japan..
"Great.. Now some dirt bag is stealing my identity.."
I said in frustration..
I pulled out my map and the closest tourist attraction was only a mile away, we could walk and make it there in about 30 minutes so we began to move forward..
The woman wakes up from her short but refueling nap, she exits the room and makes her way to the main lobby for check out..
She uses her credit card to pay for the room..
"Thank you, Mrs... Valen---"
Before the lobby clerk could thank the woman, she was on her way out the hotel. She enter her stolen vehicle and use her GPS to locate the nearest armed police station, once there she reasoned with the police chief to use their gear while in Tokyo, she gave him a brief explanation on why she need gear to travel to Tokyo, she told him that the BSAA were sending in their top agents in to scout the area and give an analysis on the infected behavior and search for clues on who's behind the attack, she also showed him her BSAA I.D and that helped her gain access to their armory.. She geared up grabbing light weighted clothing, ammo pouches, and finally, weapon holsters.
She stuffed it all into a duffle bag, provided by the O.P.D chief officer, she thanks the chief again before leaving, she made her way to Tokyo, and came across the same barrier that Helena and Paul had to go through.. She shows the USMC guard her BSAA card and he gave her permission to drive passed them..
She passed by a Black car on the way inside..
"US Navy seals? They must have dropped them off somewhere in the city nearby... Maybe I should slow down to keep my distance, can't let them know I'm watching over them." The blonde woman said to herself..
"Ok... Now where would they search, well, If I was Ada I would hide out in places where food was abundant and shelter was available.. So maybe some sort of popular inn or tourist attraction.. The Tokyo Imperial palace is a place nearby... Maybe I should go there first.."
The woman slows down her driving, coasting down the strip ensuring distance between her and the two agents in Tokyo.
[Tokyo Hotel room]
"Joseph, Wake up.. It's time" Ada said.
"Seriously?! It's only been..... 5.... hours" He replied " And how are you so sure that we can find her with your 'Master Plan' "
"Carla is a fool, she chooses the most obvious and predictable options when doing anything.. I'm confident that we'll have her in our hands way before your little BSAA friend does.. She's probably resting inside The Imperial Palace, maybe creating a plan to escape.. Now C'mon, The Imperial palace isn't too far from here we better start moving before she leaves" Ada said.
"Some times I wonder why I chose this Job..." Joseph complained..
