The Mission From Mars-Press Conference Reaction

“I just can’t believe you are going on this voyage Christy.”

Christina very rarely allowed people to call her Christy. The few who did were close friends and her parents. After getting out of school, she decided to go by her full name in order to sound more professional. While she didn’t have a boyfriend, Rob Dell was the closest thing to a brother/boyfriend she had. He knew all of her secret, but at the same time there was some chemistry between the two of them. Rob was three inches taller than Christy and looked like your average athlete. He was a coach for the high school track team and a part time teacher at the school.

Christina looked at Rob and said, “I had to say yes.”


“Because Mentor forced my back into a wall,” replied Christina.

Rob rubbed his hands over his face and said, “I know it was a trap, but now you are playing closer into his hands. What if he tries to do something to you during the voyage?”

“He can’t,” replied Christina. “We are going to have troops there with us.”

“Don’t be naïve,” said. Rob. “I bet those troops will be on his payroll.”

“You don’t know that,” replied Christina.

All of these things had gone through her mind already. Only a fool would not have seen Mentor was trying to set her up. When she had accepted the last spot on the voyage, she had to give the right kind of answer to throw Mentor off balance. The problem for her now was that she was off balance. There didn’t seem to be anything she could do. Backing out of the trip now would make her look like a coward and that her story had no merit. Going through with the trip could lead to some kind of disaster.

“I wish there was a way you knew what was coming,” said Rob.

“What do you mean?” asked Christina.

“Mentor probably knows something everyone else doesn’t know. If there was a way to know something he doesn’t know, then you could use it on him when the time was right.”

Christina leaned against a wall and bit her lower lip. Science was not a strong subject for her. People on the other hand was her strength. In many cases she could read and person and know whether or not they were telling the truth. It was a strong trait and one she used when dealing with interviews. It was the one way in which she knew Spiro Wilson was telling the truth.
Eyes widening, Christina grabbed her purse and said, “I got to go.”

“Where are you going?”

“To get my ace in the hole.”
