Kiniro in an effort to restore order, and to humble himself before them, at least momentarily, bowed and said "After you." Murasaki and Sneakers brushed passed him, and started down the hall. Kiniro fell into step about 1 and a half paces behind murasaki. This was enough to show respect, but not enough to show fear. Kiniro hadn't liked the accusations he had recieved only a few seconds ago. It hadn't mattered whether or not they could swim, since he could have dragged them the whole way anyway. He also never had even the most remote thought that they couldn't fight, quite the contrary really. Things had gotten all confused as usual. He put his thoughts to the back of his mind, and concentrated on what was ahead of him. Security cleared them, and took them directly to a debriefing room. This was standard procedure, since after all, this was a very hard to find base. A man in a suit with a briefcase walked into the room, and sat down. TBC? -Insanellama
