Michael, Adrian and Reilly stood looking at the downloaded surveillance intel that had been transmitted from Michael’s PDA while in the abbey. Reilly pointed to the secret room with unidentified personnel on the screen.

“Sorry Michael, we’ve tried to clear up the resolution to identify the occupants of the room but either our equipment is not sensitive to generate the clarity required or there’s some form of firewall protection around the room.”

Michael leaned in closer and peered at the screen. “It’s no doubt our equipment....we need to return and try another approach. We must find a logical ingress point to the room....the entrance the Society members use.”

Nikita had been sitting on the bed listening to the conversation. “If we’re going to go in again Michael, we must move quickly, the yearly high tide is scheduled two days from now.”

Michael walked to a window in the cottage that overlooked the Mont-St.Michel abbey. He stroked his chin. “Yes but we require positive identification and that requires time and correct intel.”

Nikita and Adrian exchanged looks. Adrian walked up to Michael. “Perhaps we are not being expedient....possibly we should re-evaluate our objective....we are only a small team without full capabilities....we......”

Michael swung around facing Adrian. “If we don’t act to dispose of our target within the next two days, we have failed. You should realize that Adrian....we simply require one more intel gathering mission....we will not give up our task.”

“Well of course Michael....I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to......perhaps in the morning when the abbey opens....,” stammered Adrian.

Michael started for the door of the cottage. “I’m going for a walk....I’ll return with the hour.”

“Want some company?” questioned Nikita.

“No thank you....I’ll be back in an hour.” He closed the door behind him.

Reilly busied himself with the computer and other equipment, then glanced over at Adrian. “Ahhh....you want me to go and bring back some food for us?”

“Yes Reilly, that would be good,” replied Adrian.

After Reilly left, Adrian walked over to Nikita and sat down. “What is your evaluation of our situation, my dear?”

“We need more intel...we can’t just go barging in, planting explosive devices and when we locate the main entrance to the secret room, we can’t go in and .....well, just shoot them all! Gawd Adrian, I wish this was all over....I hate it!”

“We could walk away from here....attempt to hide ourselves from the Society. The last few days I’ve had less confidence with our mission and we are sorely equipped....I’m afraid Michael feels the same but will not admit such.”

“He’s driven to destroy the Society members....and he’s chosen to ignore the message from my father....the one I showed you.”

“Yes, the message is indeed puzzling....I fear it means more than just a guise to separate you and Michael....perhaps if both you and I tried to convince Michael to abandon the mission.....”

Nikita sighed. “Michael will not give up....he will see this to its end.”
