On the way back to the hideout, the Agent Team was silent.
Agent Q marveled at how just yesterday, they had been having another boring drill. Since then, he/she had been kidnapped along with the President of the United States, rescued, and then the FBI had thanked them, left, and that was it. All of this had happened within the last 24 hours.
Agent A turned to Agent M. “What happened to you guys in the truck? We heard that you escaped, but then they found you.”
“We hid in some boxes at the back of the truck. The guard thought we had escaped, but then he found us. The Man wasn’t very happy when he found out that it was just a false alarm. And by the way, what happened to you guys while the Man was trying to get away? We heard weird noises from the truck.”
“XXXXXXXXX and I tried to stop the man by standing in front of the truck, but then he tried to run us over. Agents S and H sprayed water at the windshield, and Agent J locked the gate. The Man was trying to ram the gate when the police showed up.” Agent A replied.
Just then the agents arrived at the hideout.
“I can’t believe it. We saved the President of the United States and they thank us by moving out? Unbelievable.” Agent J said angrily.
“We should thank God that we saved the President of the United States in the first place. And we rescued XXXXXXXXX and XXXXXXXXX.” replied Agent P.
“Yeah. But it’s still sort of a bummer.” sighed Agent S. “We do this great thing, and get nothing for our trouble. And then they pack up and leave.”
Agent Q wondered what would happen to the Agent Team, now that the President was gone. Would people just pack up and leave? Would the Agent Team end?
As if voicing these thoughts, Agent H asked, “But what do we do now? We just rescued the President of the United States. You don’t get much better than that. I don’t really want to go back to drills and investigating things like gloves and business cards, if you know what I mean.”
“Well,” replied Agent M, “We still have that robot from Christmas. We could try to use that.”
“But it wouldn’t be the same.” sighed Agent T.
“I don’t think any of us will be the same after this.” Agent Q said. “But I like the idea of using that robot.”
“You know,” said Agent A, “I think we need to have a party. After all, we did find Agents M and Q. And we rescued the President.”
“And we need to eat. We haven’t eaten since breakfast.” added Agent N. He/she went over to the cupboard and pulled out the leftover cereal.
So the Agents ate the cereal, listened to music, and played games until it was time to leave. Then they departed from the hideout, agreeing to meet again soon.
