"Go bring in some rebels. That's your order," Umbrellascope says stiffly.
Nodding uncertainly, I dash out the door, taking a deep breath in the Fog-filled No Man's Landing air. That's just wonderful. Now I have to bring in some Resisters too? I don't know how much longer I can keep up this facade...
"Hey, Lark! What's up?"
I whip around to see the face of my friend and Resistance partner, Arille Sprocketlook. Her bright red hair sticks out in the dull landscape of No Man's Landing.
She furrows her eyebrows as soon as she sees me, most likely confused at my eyes and attire.
"Iva..." she says.
I smile at her. "Don't worry, this is all a part of my plan. I'm undercover in the Empire. But I need you to come with me, and I need you to trust me."
Eyebrows still furrowed, Arille obeys and the two of us head back to the base. I whisper quietly, "I will break you out."
Her eyes widen as I grip her arm tightly. "Break me out?!"
"Shh," I say as we enter the base. I spot Liliana Umbrellascope and report, "This is a rebel I've encountered by the name of Arille Sprocketlook. I'm taking her to the prison."
With a small smirk, I drag her along to the prison and place her in a cell.
"I'm assuming this is all a part of your plan," Arille says uncertainly.
"Aye, it most certainly is," I whisper with a wink, then head back to Umbrellascope.
