I'm really excited for this part, it has a really fun cliff hanger. You thought once they got back to HQ everything would be fine.
How wrong you were.XD
How wrong you were.XD
The rope ladder tumbled down from the helicopter.
"Come on!" Dmitri shouted. The trio crawled up the ladder to Sara and Natalie.
"You're safe!" Sara exclaimed and gave them each a quick scan for serious injuries. "You have no idea!" She sighed, continuing to babble as she handed them over to Natalie, TAUT's doctor.
"My, my, you're crispy!" Natalie mumbled and dabbed some ointment onto Dmitri's wrist. Now that they were out of the fire and out of danger, they could finally see their burns.
"Oh." Dmitri pulled away and grabbed her backpack. She showed them the bottle with the mysterious goo. "We hid in a cave that had this stuff covering it, and it wasn't catching fire. I think your scientists could make more and stop the fire." Dmitri paused, trying to remember what else she had to say. "Right. And that other spray is toxic to humans."
Sara took the bottle.
"Wonderful! We will get this to the lab immediately," Sara replied and put the bottle away. "Now. We need to get you home, you've had a dangerous mission and need rest." Sara sat down, starting to text on her phone.
Dmitri went over to Chris and laughed.
"Your eyebrows are completely singed!"
"Yours are, too!" Chris replied. Dmitri stopped laughing, her hand flying to her brows.
"We must look like freaks!" she chuckled. Chris nodded.
"I can't believe we almost died. If it weren't for you, Logan, we would have. Thank you."
Logan smiled, shrugging.
"No problem, I couldn't let you guys die."
Dmitri knew he was addressing both of them, yet she felt as if he were talking directly to Chris. She smiled and shook her head.
As soon as the helicopter landed, Dmitri, Chris, and Logan were taken to their rooms.
Dmitri winced as Natalie put a thick salve on her blistered legs.
"Sorry, but you were somewhat eaten by those flames. You're lucky you survived!" Natalie replied.
Dmitri fought to sit up and look at her legs.
"Sleep now, Dmitri. Your mission is over, it was a success. As we speak, our scientists work to reproduce that paste."
Her words made Dmitri calm down, knowing that her mission wasn't failed, but just was a different sort of success. Natalie departed.
Dmitri snuggled into her covers, quickly falling asleep.
BRRRRIIIIIIING!!!! BAMP! BAMP! BAMP! BAMP!
Dmitri shot up straight in her be, her heart hammering in her chest at the sudden noise. Alarms never rand here unless-
"No! That's crazy!" she told herself, but the speaker confirmed her fears.
"THERE HAS BEEN A SECURITY BREAK, SOMEBODY HAS BROKEN OUT OF THE TAUT HEADQUARTERS!"
CLIFF HANGER!!XD I hope you liked this part, I think the next part is the finale... Oh my gosh, it is! I can't wait!:D
