Chapter 1

A man in a security uniform walked outside an office building and touched his right ear and said, “Got it, come get me.” As the security man reached the curb a van pulled up and the security man opened the passenger side door to reveal Toad driving the van before entering and pulled away. Toad said, “Did you read the file?” The man transformed to reveal Mystique as she pulled out the manilla envelope and she said, “Only that some secret organization is planning on doing what Trask has done only that they are not planning on extinguishing all mutants.” Toad sarcastically said, “Sounds very vague coming from you.” Mystique said, “Then next time you break into a high level security area without sounding the alarm.” Toad looked a little shocked and said, “Okay, okay, I was just being sarcastic!” Mystique opened the file and began looking through it and it showed a picture of her during the peace conference incident with Magneto and papers with the Trask Industries logo on them and they gave the details of her DNA that was obtained from the pavement at the conference with a detailed description of her activities there and at the capital where she saved the president. The documents also mentioned the Sentinel program was shut down and all DNA samples that were obtained from other dead mutants during the time are sent to a black facility in Roswell. It goes on further that the undisclosed project that is currently being organized is to use the DNA to create agents with the abilities for counter intelligence and special ops. and Major Stryker is the head of the program.

Toad looked over and saw both a concern and sad expression on Mystique’s face and he said, “What is it?” Mystique looked annoyed and said, “Mind the road.” The file was then snatched from her hands by Toad’s tongue and he put his feet on the steering wheel and steered as he started to read and Mystique looked at him both shock and angry and tried to grab the file from his hands as she yelled, “Are you crazy! You are going to get us killed!” Toad held his arm out to block her but then Mystique grabbed it and twisted it behind him as she kicked his foot away from the gas and slammed on the break causing the van to stop suddenly. Toad yelped, “Okay you win!” He held the file up and Mystique grabbed it letting Toad go in the process. Toad nursed his shoulder and he said, “Man you need to lighten up! If you go at the government again you know you are risking to have them reopen the Sentinel program if not find some way to find us and hunt us down like dogs.” Mystique said, “This is personal and this time I know I won’t get caught.” Toad said, “I know your reputation but what if you do? I alone can’t come in to save you, especially if it’s a highly secured facility let alone one that is not supposed to exist.” Mystique yelled, “Hey, this is my problem not yours! Just shut up and drive!” Toad made a sour face before resuming his driving and said, “Drive you around and pick you up that’s all I’ve been doing! I thought you came to me for some serious help, not be your fracking chaperon!” Mystique said, “You are helping me. I just don’t have the time to look out for someone when I can do it myself without risking someone else’s life.” Toad said, “I can handle myself. Just give me something to do or else I’ll do it myself.” Mystique looked frustrated and said, “Damn, fine. Just drive back while I think of something.” Toad smiled with satisfaction while Mystique rolled her eyes and looked out the side window annoyed.

Toad stopped the van in front of a library and Mystique transformed into a nerdy teenage girl before leaving and she walked up as the van pulled away. She saw the sign that the library will close in one hour on the front desk and she continued on to the back where the computers are. In the meantime Toad parked the van in an abandon parking lot that is close to the trailer park where his trailer is located and he made one quick look before ditching the van and entering the park. When Mystique found the nearest available computer she immediately began searching Roswell and the address the facility is supposed to be located but found out there is only a bottling plant at that location. She then researched the personnel on the field that were responsible for the transfer but found no trace after their work with Trask Industries and she got up and left.

Toad drove up in the parking lot in his trailer and the nerdy teenage girl got in the passenger side before Mystique transformed back to herself as they drove away and Toad said, “Well, anything?” Mystique replied, “Nothing, just a fake bottling plant and the personnel backgrounds and present ones are bogus.” Toad said, “Now what?” Mystique said, “It’s obvious they are covering that facility up in Roswell, so we go there.” She looked behind her and around the trailer with a disgusted look on her face and said as she turned back, “Only we are ditching this thing before we go.” Toad looked at her shocked and said, “Really?” Mystique starred at him and said, “Either you get rid of this trailer or you are not coming and I’ll find my own way.” Toad stammered angrily but Mystique glared at him and he sighed and said depressingly, “Fine.” Mystique looked ahead but then she grew irritated, rolled her eyes and said, “Never mind, I’ll go ahead and scout the area while you put the trailer in a safe spot and rent a vehicle and meet me there.” Toad looked a little amazed and said, “Hey, you’re being nice for once!” Mystique sighed irritatingly and said, “Just drive to the airport.”
