Michael, Nikita and Adrian sat opposite Rene Laval, Download and Reilly in the media room, now turned into a systems staging area. Upon returning to the villa, Michael and Nikita had quickly showered and changed clothes. Nikita had attempted to once again distract Michael from getting dressed but to no avail; he was intent on concentrating on the upcoming mission.
Michael rose from behind the large table that served as a mission profiling area. He paced slowly behind Download who was busy uploading images.
“These are the only images I could spike from the satellite link. The office is located in Nice, France,” muttered Download. “Security is very tight.”
“With personnel or technology?” interjected Michael.
“Both...I managed to tap into a correlating process on the building...there is a integral alarm system that can’t be de-activated. Not sure how you’ll access the building.”
Nikita looked at Michael. “Perhaps we can use the ozeman process....Center should be able to supply us with the equipment.”
Download looked up from his computer screen. “The what process?”
Adrian rose and walked up behind the young computer geek. “Never mind Justin....not to worry. You are doing excellent work....leave the field mechanics to us.”
Michael began pacing the room, stroking his chin. “Yes...the ozeman should work nicely. Reilly, contact Center and see if one is available....if so, have our pilot fly to Paris and pick it up but before giving the order, wait until we finish this meeting....there will possibly be addition equipment we require.”
Nikita smiled. “No doubt there will be....like a few more highly trained operatives.”
Michael looked up sternly. “We will do fine with our existing personnel. Rene have you prepared the final list of equipment requirements we have on hand?”
“Yes....Dalton has an incredible munitions arsenal, including many high tech surveillance devices.”
Michael nodded. “Good, when we finish here, I want you to sit down with Adrian and prepare a list of additional equipment she feels we require....add it to the list for Center.”
“We’ll have to delay departure for a couple of days Michael....it will take that long for Center to send us what we require,” shrugged Nikita.
“No, you and I, with two other agents will still leave tomorrow for Nice. Reilly you will bring the gear to Nice at a predetermined location.”
Adrian looked over quickly at Michael. “Not to question the plan Michael, but wouldn’t it be more expedient for the team to arrive with all personnel and equipment at the same time.”
“Ideally yes Adrian but Nikita and I can spend time undertaking surveillance of the building.”
Nikita looked away, suppressing a smile. Nice try Adrian....but you don’t know Michael....once he’s made a decision, he is in control.
After finalizing the mission profile, the team began disbursing; Adrian sat with Rene who made notes on addition equipment requirements. Download turned off his computer and sym equipment and called out to Michael who was leaving with Nikita.
“Ahhhh, sir....I need you to....ahhhh, prep me on my job. Do I communicate from here or from computer systems? I’m not really sure what I should be doing.”
Michael turned to the young man. “Adrian will work closely with you from computer systems...you’ll be fine. She will take you through each step as we approach Nice.”
“Ohhh....kay. If you say so....it’s just, well I’ve never done anything like this before and....”
Nikita smiled and walked up to Justin. “You’ll be able to communicate with us on comm units and Adrian will be with you to advise on procedures. Don’t worry....ahh, Download. It’ll be like playing a computer game...with real people,” she grinned.
“Cool! Thank Nikita!,” he grinned.

Nikita followed Michael into their room, watching Michael as he began preparing his mission clothing and munitions for the task ahead. He glanced over at her as she stood staring.
“You need to prepare your gear Nikita. I want to leave at 4am. We’ll take the Mercedes and have the other men take the van that has been re-equipped.”
Nikita sauntered over to a closet and began pulling out her black, leather mission clothing. She had tucked it all away in a box, hoping to never have to use it again: she was mistaken.
“So Reilly has the van conversion completed....up to Section and MI-6 standard?” she queried.
“I wish that were possible. No, the van has only rudimentary equipment but it will have to do. When Reilly returns from Center with the ozeman gear and other items Adrian has requested, we will install them immediately. The van is only currently set up to communicate here with the villa.”
“Hummmm,” frowned Nikita. “Not like the old days at Section and Interpol, huh Michael, nothing but top of the line technical equipment.”
“We will accomplish our goal with what we have.”
Nikita stopped what she was doing and turned to Michael. “And just what is our goal? We are only a small group of agents Michael....we aren’t strong enough to take on the whole Society.”
Michael looked at Nikita with his customary blank stare. “Yes we are, we have a secret weapon.”
“Secret weapon? And just what might that be?”
“You and me.”
Michael returned to packing his gear.
