“Cool… There is actually one thing I want to ask all of you… Who is Anita…?”
All the others at the lunch table looked to Victor. She was his partner after all, so he should be the one to answer this question.
“She was… is my partner. Anita is a Secret Agent like me, but for now…”
Eliza gave Victor a surprised look. “What happened to her?”
Victor swallowed before he continued. Of course this new agent had to know what happened to Anita, but he didn’t like to tell it. He didn’t like to tell the rest that he had failed his partner. That he wasn’t there for her when she needed him the most.
“We had a Reptogator attack. We didn’t know where they were, so we all split up. Anita had an encounter with the Reptogator. At this moment, she’s at Medical Bay… In a coma…”
Eliza fell silent. “I… I don’t know what to say. I’m sorry, Victor.”
