They called me into the queen’s office. There were several people I had never seen before in there. She looked at me and smiled.

“I am glad that you were available. We have a problem and I think you are the only person who can solve it,” She persuaded.

“What can I do for you?” I questioned.

“I need you to do a rescue mission on one of our informers, she got herself caught and locked up in a lighthouse from our intel.”

I nodded and went out the door. I closed the door, and I met with the captain with papers of the lighthouse. He handed them to me and wished me luck. I went to my office and gathered all of my necessary tools to get into the lighthouse.

I went down to our gadgets guy hoping to score a new ride for this adventure. I sprinted all the way down. This was my first rescue mission, and I didn’t want to mess it up.

I hit the bottom of the stairs to see a very young guy.

“Are you here to get a car by chance?” The guy asked.

“Yes, I need to get to this lighthouse.” I handed him the paper that I had received from the Captain.

“Ah, I can do that for you. My name is Lance. I am the new guy,” Lance responded. “I will get your keys for you. I bet it’s hard to rescue people. I am so glad that all I have to do is provide you the technology to do your job.”

I smiled and grabbed the keys from Lance’s hands. I walk towards the back door and open it. The sun just went down and the air was cool. When the waves hit the banks at this time of day, I get a jittery feeling in my stomach.
