After the early lunch rush, Hito Yon found himself with nothing to do except sit and contemplate his situation. Unfortunately, it was not a situation that bore contemplation. True, he wasn’t a very experienced member of Japan’s Sci-Fi and Supernatural Threat Defense Force – but he was extremely well trained. And, admittedly, he hadn’t considered that his deployment would be interrupting a mission in progress – but the fact that Tanaka’s team was engaged in some other project didn’t change the fact that Hito Yon’s mission from HQ was to deal with the aliens.
It did, however, seem to mean that he wouldn’t have any backup on his mission within the near future. In fact, as long as Mr. Tanaka was keeping him under orders to man a hotdog stand, Hito Yon was fairly sure he would have to deliberately work around the team he was supposed to be supporting!
Hito Yon sighed. "<I don’t think there’s a way things could be worse,>" he muttered.
And then it began to rain.
