10 Hours Earlier
The sound of a pen tapping rapidly expressed how impatient Colonel David Wright was. He called for Ryan in order to give him a mission. The first one since the teen left the agency. Wright knew what Ryan did as the Crimson Eagle, he hated it, but there was nothing he could do to change that. The Caucasian man got up and walked around restlessly, he stopped. The Colonel was one who wanted to keep his anger in check. He walked over to the door of his window-less office and swung it open. GET CANDAN IN HERE! Well at least he tried.
Ryan Candan stepped foot into the office of the of the enraged official, his face expressed no emotion and he looked at Wright with distrust. I thought I was done with guys. The teen went to lie his back against the wall and crossed his arms, his eyes looked down on the ground. The official glared at the relaxed teen, We're never done. We gave you your powers Ryan, you owe us your gratitude. Ryan looked up, his expression completely still; he walked towards the door, I told you guys, I'm finished with you.
What if I told you the mission had to do with Project: Adrenaline ?
The teen stopped in his tracks, he clenched his fist. Don't tell me you perfected the formula and someone stole it. There was an awkward silence.
What's the matter with you!? Don't you know how dangerous that thing is? I thought you guys cancelled the Project!
The Colonel looked at Ryan and reached behind him a file. I knew you'd accept. Ryan snatched the file from his hand and left the office to suit up. I know I'm gonna regret this, he thought.
Night had draped over the sun and all that was left were the stars. The Crimson Eagle was looking at the distant compound with his night vision. 4 guards at the main entrance, 6 behind it, 14 surrounding a perimeter, probably more inside. They were all armed, but this seemed too easy. The 14 surrounding the perimeter were too distant from each other, the 4 guarding the door were chatting, paying little attention to their surroundings. There were more cameras than guards They were careless.
Eagle was flying high above the night, he read from the file Wright gave him that the Serum was stolen approximately two days before their meeting. If they worked fast, they could have reproduced thousands of these and create an army or perhaps worse, reverse engineer the serum and create a virus. Whatever the reason, it had to be destroyed despite the fact Wright wanted it retrieved. What plagued Ryan was 'them', the file had no name of the organization, just the name of the one in charge and the one to capture: Winston Sharpe.
The Eagle dived into the center of the guarded compound, his target was the ventilation shaft on the ground; the perfect blind spot to all the cameras located.
He was in. The vents were a maze, but the blueprints in the file does allow for the puzzle to be easier. Right, left, up. Slowly, Ryan made it to the vent needed to easily infiltrate the inside. Slowly, he dropped down and made his way down the corridor full of pipes and wires. Footsteps came his way and the painted shadows of guards grew closer. The teen stuck close to the wall until the guards were close enough.
The sounds of grunts were echoed through the corridors and the teen continued walking down. It was rather simple to get the key card from an unconscious guard and now it was time to find the target. The corridor ended with a mechanized door. The teen swiped the card and he entered into the next room. The door shut behind him and the room's massive space and high ceiling was revealed through the illuminating lights. The room held only one thing, a canister on a podium. The teen was reliving his childhood as the flashback of Indiana Jones appeared in his mind as Ryan walked over to pick up the canister. He picked it up. Nothing happened. The teen was somewhat shocked, it seems that some things only happen in movies. Eagle looked at the canister and was perplexed by the label.
What the-? The teen couldn't finish his words for the sound of a door opening was heard. Ryan didn't look back, he reached into his belt and grabbed his shuriken. I knew I was gonna regret this.
