Cy: Plant them bombs, use the twenty minute timer. I'll instruct the other Corporate Raiders to do so at every other Extensive Enterprises property on our list. By the end of the week, their stock will be at an all time low. Take the computer. Any secrets it holds can be unlocked back on Lightning Island.
(In Washington, another figure watches Database and Miss M's house. Under cover of darkness, he will strike.)
Figure (thinking): My new employer will want to know how many of Cobra's secrets Mindbender's experiment leaked. And if he wont tell, his lady just might. And I get to have some fun.

(Several hours later, Tomax and Xamot arrive in Hollywood, at an Extensive Enterprises building. While not as great as the main one in New York, this is one of the Entertainment section's biggest areas) Tomax: I am certain this office is on the list. We should tell Hawk, or someone who will listen. (Xamot calls Database)
(And...) Database: All done, I see. (The agents begins to head to the new location, as Database's burner rings. It is a California number this time.) Database: Hello. Xamot: Our apologies for not contacting you sooner. We were met with a hostile takeover, one that is still going on. Our New York Office will be destroyed soon. Database: I see. Xamot: I suggest that if you haven't done it yet, to get rid of any information you have that is connected with Cobra. Database: I don't have much left in me. All I have, or at least most of it, is in the Pit, under top security. I only have at most limited information. (There is a sound of typing) Xamot: We are trying to safeguard as many of our employees as possible. Just make sure to get to California safe.

(Database and Miss M begin to finalize the plans for the night and tomorrow. They will take a circuitous route to a hotel, using assumed names, and leave at dawn for the airport. After checking in, they will eat breakfast before boarding the plane) Database: If anyone happens to me, tell Hawk at the new base. Miss M: Of course.

(The morning of the 10th, the two check out, heading for the airport and their flight. They check in early, leaving their car parked (and likely to be towed) They arrive for their flight about one hour before departure, and eat breakfast.) Database: I swear we were followed. (Miss M nods)
(Knowing he could never make it through security, the figure looks at a list of departing flights.)
Figure: Let's see. Where could they be going? Europe? Not likely. New York? I don't think they would go back to a compromised location. Hmm, California. Gray Lake, California. That's possible. Seeing as records show Colonel Chrome and Cover Girl bought train tickets there after they retired.
(The figure drives away to an unused airfield, where a cargo plane is waiting. He drives his truck onto the plan, and contacts the cockpit.)
Figure: Gray Lake, California. We need to prepare an ambush. Pilot (v/o): I will arrange for some of the Urban division will be waiting for us.
(Back at the airport, a television report will be talking about a possible terrorist attack, which has targeted Extensive Enterprises on a global level. Almost all their facilities have been destroyed, and their stock is dropping like a rock.)

Database: That sounds like the Legion, doing what they do worst. Miss M: As long as the people are safe. (The two board the plane. In three hours, they will arrive.) Miss M: They will most likely ambush us when we land. (Database nods)
(Meanwhile...) Xamot: Most of our buildings have been destroyed. I have advised the stock holders to not sell. Tomax: The stock is too low. They will sell at a loss. And those two will buy it easily.
(The cargo plane arrives in Gray Lake half an hour before the commercial flight. A group of men in matching uniforms are waiting.)
Man: Orders? Figure: There will be a flight from Washington DC arriving at Gray Lake International in a short time. There are two passengers on board that must be detained. The male more so than the female. Although, if you can get both of them, all the better. Man: Don't worry. We urban infiltrators will do whatever it takes in the name of Lord Lightning.
(Meanwhile, somewhere in the Pacific...)
Man 1: Yes, all shares of Extensive Enterprises. Man 2: Current market value, or lower. Man 1: Soon, Bear, we will have the majority of shares. Man 2: Indeed, Bull. Then Extensive Enterprises will be a new subsidiary of Lightning Inc. And any remaining Crimson Guard assets will be the Legion's.

(As the plane lands, Database and Miss M have made a plan. As they do not know they will both be detained, they have decided that Miss M will go out and get the bags, after disguising Database in the nearest family restroom. Database will be hiding in the closest place he can find (if any) that is not a bathroom. They have set up a code word, just in case. Miss M will go outside, and look for someone with her codename. If she cannot find in in five minutes, she will go get a rental car. If while heading back to the airport, someone looks like she is following her, she will head for the house she will end up buying, and leave Database to be captured.)
(A group of the Legion's Urban Infiltrators wait near the baggage carousel. They have pictures of both Database and Miss M, and will grab either one of them, under the pretense of Homeland Security agents.)

(Miss M goes to get the luggage) Urban Infiltrator: Homeland security. We need you to come with us. (Miss M looks confused, but tries to see if they are actually dressed like Homeland Officers. If they are even close, she will comply)
Post by Rainbow Ranger on Aug 14, 2018 13:56:34 GMT -5
(Miss M will comply with the officer. As she does, Database waits somewhere in the airport.) P A. System: Will Database please report to baggage claim to claim a lost item. (Database ignores the announcement, fearing a trap.)
