Project: Gemini

Five strangers were brought in to use their special skills to undertake a project. They thought that it was a simple task until it all falls apart. The hunters become the hunted. What happens when the simple mission turns from finding the most wanted to them becoming the most wanted.

This is something that I came up with and like to share with all. Hope this keeps you intrigued and wanting more.

4. Chapter 4

Xander re-examined the evidence. It didn't make sense as to how could the evidence been missed before. They were relying on the witness when there was a finger print on s possible weapon and the weapon was the smoking gun. He shook his head again trying to think. 

"What are you doing?" Asked Melanie Jerks. She worked with him at the labs. She looked over his shoulders and looked at him with a blank face. 

"I found this in the evidence locker. It was in the wrong section and marked as processed. When I tried to look it up, nothing. I'm running it again and guess what?"

Melanie looked at him at him with a puzzled look. "So what did you find out?"

"This evidence was pulled from that murder case whose hearing is mean to be tomorrow. The one whose witness is under protection because someone finally decided to come up and take a stance," informed Xander.

Melanie watched in silence as she was amazed at this finding. "If we manage to get the results before tomorrow, they will have enough evidence to put him away."

"Yes, but I don't get why was this put away in the wrong place?"

"Xander, we should tell the FBI about this. This is an important part that they will need tomorrow," suggested Melanie.

Xander nodded and made a call the FBI.

"Wait, didn't you have a blind date tonight?" interrupted Melanie.

"I completely forgot about that. And by the looks of it, I'm running late already. But I cant also leave this half way done."

"Don't worry, I think I can manage to keep this going for tonight. I will make sure that the results are collected and ready for tomorrow," smiled Melanie.

"Wyatt, we have a problem. That was the local NYPD and they said that there was is a hold up at the local studio," said Harvey.

"So, that isn't part of our problem at the moment," said Wyatt.

"Yeah, well your wife is inside. She made a 911 call from inside the building but before much could be recorded, they line went dead and now there hasn't been any contact from inside."

Wyatt went pale on hearing this. He looked at his partner and at the house. He was stuck in a situation and he didn't even know what to do. He wanted to be by his wife's side yet he had orders to keep this witness safe. With the previous track record, he didn't want to loose this witness.

"NYPD's finest are working on it. I heard Nate Lawson is on the case," assured Harvey.

"I need to talk to him. I need to know first hand what they are planning on doing," said Wyatt as he tried to stay calm.

                                // -------------------------------- \\ ------------------------------ //

Nate's phone rang as he was trying to plan a way into the studio without getting any hostages shot.

"Nate Lawson?" 

"Hi, my name is Agent Wyatt O'Brien. My wife is inside that studio that you are currently working on and capturing the guys that have hostages. I just want to know what's happening?"

"Hi Agent O'Brien, please be assured that we are doing everything in our power to get your wife and the other hostages out safely. I can also assure you that those men inside wont harm anyone as long as we take this nice and slow. We have already dealt with them in the past."

"I'm trusting you to keep them safe."

Hanging up, Nate felt his chest get heavy. Now the pressure was really on to keep them safe inside. He went back to looking over the plans of the building.

"Nate, our tech guys may need help getting into the security cameras. I know a person that can help us. She was a hacker previously but she works with the FBI," whispered Shane Mosby.

"I'm not going to go breaking the law for this. How do you know about her anyways?"

"My brothers girlfriend is her roommate and she is really good. We need help in finishing this all fast."

Rolling his eyes at even having this thought, Nate took the number from Shane and called.

"Hello," came an answer after 3 rings.  

"Hi, is this... Ameila Greenwood?"

"Yes, who's this and what do you want?"

Taken aback by the answer Nate continued. "My name is Nate Lawson and I'm with the NYPD. We currently have an issue and would like your help."

There was a pause before she continued. "How can I help?"

"We are currently trying to get into the security system of Irene's Studio at Berkeley Street but the security is taking too long to get through to us. We need eyes in there ASAP. I know you can help," said Nate. 

Again another pause. "I... don't know what you want me to do about that..."

"Ameila, I know you can hack in. My tech guys need your help and I cant really have them do this as they are under constant supervision at the moment. You are our only hope."

"Fine give me 3 minutes and patch you through."

                           // --------------------------------- \\ -------------------------- //

"Hey that was Shane and he had some bad news for you," said Melanie.

Xander stopped. "What, I'm in a hurry so please no suspense please. I'm already running late for this blind date. Why did I let Shane push me into this whole mess."

"That's what this is about. He called to let you know that your date... cant make it. She was at Irene's Studio which is under lock down after 2 men broke in and keeping them hostages," filled in Melanie.

"WHAT!!! Are they all ok. What do these guys want?"

"I don't know but they are working on it. Looks like you can now stay and work on this evidence after all."
