"Hm, let us see, then." David seemed to almost smile, but his lip rather curled into a twisted grin as he got into the car. He pulled out two papers from the manilla envelope. One was a memo, obviously unrelated to this mission, and one was the mission papers. He put the mission papers on the bulkhead while reading the memo;
David nodded to himself and grabbed Gwen's pulse gun, and quickly stepped out of the car, tossing his and her pulse guns onto the ground, and pulled out his revolver, "God, I have waited so long to do this."

Part of a machine;
Unstoppable, as merciless as tidal waves.
