“Good thing they didn’t hit the vitals.” I heard Mr. Martins’ voice. I was about to open my eyes but I grimaced in pain as I felt the sharp stabbing pain in my left leg.
“They dared to fire at one of our agents? They are asking for war, Mr. Martins. We need to fight back.” Wave replied.
“No, we still have the K-9 in our hands. What if the government will hire them against us? The k-9 are disloyal dogs, they will serve anyone just for amusement. This is what they want to happen.”
“I know what you are planning, Agent Wave. Don’t you dare?” Mr. Martins left.
Silence surrounded us until Wave spoke up. “I know you’re awake, open your eyes.”
I opened my eyes and stuck my tongue out at him. “Boomer.” I looked around, I am in the agency’s infirmary. “How many hours have I been out?”
“Oh…” I trailed off. “I can still walk right?”
He looked at me. “I’m afraid not-”
“What!?” I shrieked.
“not for a few w
you may ask how I became an agent? Let me tell you everything in detail. I was taken aback by my memories years ago, memories that I had been trying to forget and bury. But these memories were too long but it felt like yesterday. "Bye, Dad," I yelled while descending the stairs. As soon as I reached the last stair, I was met with my dad's gaze. I went to kiss him on the cheek. "Okay then, wait for your driver he's going to drive you to scho--" before my father could finish his sentence, I cut it off. "--I'm fine, Dad. I can just walk and-" I said but it was my turn to be cut off by my father's powerful voice. "---Hira, my daughter." He looked at me pointedly. If someone is talking with my father, I’m certain that they will melt from the fear of his powerful voice. But I’m different. Living with him ever since I was born, I was used to his authoritative attitude. "I said you're going to wait for the driver." "But...I'm gonna be late-" I s
Everything happened so fast. We were attacked one day in our house, and I watched in horror as my dad got killed, and I can not even do anything. It was until then that a handsome young man in a suit appeared in front of me when I was almost stabbed. Like a knight in shining armor. I remember my father’s advice before. “Harris Miller?” I asked, confirming everything. He gave me a slight nod, and I got a bit relieved, my eyes tearing up. He held my hand and pulled me behind me, to protect me from the attacker. "Who do you work for?" I heard him asking the enemy. I tighten my grip on my savior’s arm, as he glared at the enemy, "I'd rather die." The enemy answered, spitting. "That can be arranged."My savior said, and he drew a line from one side of his throat to the other and push the body to the floor. I watched everything in silence, still in panic but forced myself to keep calm.
I took a seat, looking behind me to look for confirmation to Harris. Harris motioned his head to the seat. I nodded and sat."So what do you want first. Ms. Callan before we start our chat? Tea? Soda?"I cleared my throat. What am I nervous about? just because Harris said that it is boss does not mean that I have to bow my head to him. Right. That is the spirit, Hira. Gathering my confidence, I smiled politely. "It is okay. Sir. I have no time for that. I want to know why I am here? And who the hell are you?""Oh. Getting straight to the point, are we?" He asked. He cleared his throat when he saw the serious look on my face. "My name is Leonard Martins. You can call me Mr. Leo or Mr. Martins, or maybe...father."My eyes bulged out of its sockets. Father?Seeing my reaction, he smirked, crossing his arms in front of me. "It is just so easy, Ms. Hira Callan. We will tell you everything if you come with us."Questions rang around my head. I sho
It looks like I just ate my words back then. I did come back to them, realizing I have nowhere to go to. As of now, Harris Miller is taking me on a tour of the Cypher agency building. He's guiding me and telling me rules and regulations that I must follow. "So this is the training place.""The old man said that-""Old man? Ms. Hira Callan, that was the boss we are talking about. Call him boss or Mr. Martin or Mr. Leo.""Oh? Boss? Mr. Martin? Psh 'old man' suits him more."He had this straight face and chuckled. "Please be more careful with what you say, there is CCTV around.""Oh, whatever." I know that already, even to our house my dad installs it thinking that I don't know it. But I'm aware of it. My dad... I suddenly get sad."Are you okay? Ms. Hira Callan?""No. You keep calling me Ms. Hira Callan, stop that.""Then Ms. Hira?""Just Hira okay?""Okay. Ms.Hira- I mean Hira.""Why did the old man called you Wave?""
Wave asked me. "So how was your first day?""Oh, the usual," I remarked. "Though I want you to teach me how to combat training..." I trailed off. I'm getting sick with this self-defense. All I can do is defend myself, what if I had the opportunity to kill the enemy? What should I do? Take a shield instead of firing a gun? I snorted."It's because we train first mentally, physically,We'll train you on the basics first. We are just going easy on you because of Mr. Martins' orders.""Easy?" I rolled my eyes. "C'mon, you don't have to take it easy for me.""Then I will make it hard. The battle is not even starting yet, Ms. Hira Callan."Harris was not joking when he said that. I had been training for a month now and Harris became my self-defense instructor and bodyguard, as Mr. Martins wanted to always check up on me, scared that his friend, my dad, would choke him as a ghost when something happened to me.Yes, I ended up swallowing my pride and retur
One year has passed. "You're improving, Ms. Callan.""That's flattering, Ms. Greys. But I didn't meet my goal. My goal to learn one language per month.""Yeah yeah, but my child, you still need to improve but the only reason you didn't reach your target is that you push me to teach you the codes already. Stop pushing yourself, Cassandra. You'll get sick because of that. What are you planning that you really want to learn that fast?""Well, time is running." I grinned, then went to my archery class."That's a bullseye, Ms. Callan." Mr. Smith said, eyeing the bow I managed to hit in the centerboard.I smirk. "I guess I never miss from now on then."My gun class also passed. "Impressive, Ms. Callan." Mr. Rev said, seeing the bullet hit a bird just flying moments ago. Normally I would feel so guilty that I had taken a life, the last time I did it, I cried and worried about the rabbit I had hit and died. But Mr. Rev tells me to imagine the target as those wh
Out of nowhere, a hand came to shut my eyes and grabbed me. I struggled, fighting the person when the person whispered, "Struggle and scream and you'll see yourself dead."I froze at that."dulce periculum." He said in a gruff voice.Danger is sweet. That's what it means...I felt a piercing pain and I felt he injected something on me. I bit his hand but blackness overtook me.I don't know why he was the first thing I thought of...Wave...help me. ***** My eyes opened and I sense a sharp stabbing pain in my left side. Holding it, blood was flowing down.I tried to sit up but the pain didn't let me.There was a man sleeping on a chair beside my bed and he woke up. "Agent Nova?"Yin? "What happened? Why am I here?""Elora came to me crying and I found you with a deep wound by the river. Someone stabbed you." He said.I hold my left side. it was indeed a deep wound. I winced at the pain. "You've been here for four days now."
After dinner, we ate and when I was going to my room, I saw Sigreen waiting for me by the door. “Sigreen! I got shot and healed and I did not even see you once! Where were you? You did not even visit me.”Sigreen was acting strange, looking behind her back once in a while. “Are you okay?” I asked. She took another look behind us and opened our room’s door, harshly pushing me inside. I glared at her. “What did you do that fo-”She shushed me, her lips trembling. “Re-remove your watch.” She demanded as she removed her own watch. I looked at her in shock. “What do you mean-”“Just do it! We do not have time!”I did as she said, my heartbeat quickening from what is happening. She then grabbed a screw and put it in our high tech watch and the light from it turned off. She then grabbed a stone and smashed it to our watch, but it was not enough
