... to a fellow comrade...

Agent TBQ pulled along side the bunker, the door was agape and wild debris littered the entrance to further within the structure.

He glanced down at his device, Email from his supervisor, it was Agent TNF's last known location. His head started to hurt, he pulled the pill out of his pocket and took it without a second thought, he pulled the location up on his scanner, pulled out his flashlight and clicked it on. Agent TNF was last recorded in this bunker.. Agent TBQ paused before he continued, he shot a quick message to Agent GJL, "About to check something out, here's my location, follow up with me in 20 minutes if you don't hear back from me..." ... Send!

There, now I have another who can check up on me if this goes sideways... He trusted Agent GJL, he encountered his fellow agent quite a few times, she was assigned the main area of their city, Agent TBQ had 'lucked out' with the more rural area before getting this new assignment.

He stepped into the passage, keeping it scanner in his pocket, the sound turned up as he flashed his light further down into the passageway, the outlines of some seemingly antiquated equipment danced on the edges of his vision.

Then the medication kicked in... His focus sharpened, and now he could feel it, he didn't need his scanner turned up so loud. There was an excess of XM coming from deeper in the bunker, it felt like the air before a strong thunderstorm..

*DING!* - "RGR TBQ, will follow up in 20 - GJL"

... Agent TBQ stepped into the larger chamber, and he saw the old switch on the side, it was flipped to on.. He turned his attention to the light switch on the other side of the wall, and flicked it on.
He could taste the excess energy in the air now, and the rest of the equipment finally sprung to life.

He glanced down and saw the empty pair of shoes on the floor.
