“Why did the President call you? Aren’t you a bit young, all of you?” Jack asked quietly once the plane was in the air and it was only the three of them in the passenger area.
“We may be young according to the calendar, but some battles and ages cannot be times. The President called us because we’ve dealt with a military operation before. The three people that you met, can and will carry out any threat they make. We have won many battles, frequently with little preparation or an absolute plan. That is why we were called. Tell me honestly, how long is the live for the restrooms at the base or where ever we are going?”

“For close to half a year I lived in a house with close to thirty people and one bathroom. We just left a house that is almost as bad. This morning I waited in a line for 20 minutes.”
“What did the red haired girl mean when she mentioned the wrath of Ripper?” Jack inquired as Daniel wondered as to the social aspects of that many people and one bathroom.
“Think of Ripper as a very protective father that you would never want to insult his daughter.” Dawn vaguely replied as she dug into a side pocket of her duffel, triumphantly pulling out a notebook that she settled into her seat to read.
