"A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work."

-Colin Powell

T.E.R.S.E. Headquarters, Belle City, 9:01a.m

"Heath, there you are." Terrance said. "Allow me to introduce you to your new partner, Henry Gargani. From now on, he will be going on missions with you. A few days ago, a young woman by the name of Judy Walker went missing. She was last seen getting in the car with her ex at the Sanfield Pub and he was armed. I want you two to check her apartment and see if you can find anything. I'll text you the address."

Raphael gave one of those mysterious smiles to Henry as he examined him. Henry was at least one head shorter than Raphael which made him have to look up when he was to talking to taller people, and his head resembled a balloon. His hair was a catlike orange colour, and he had dimples which stood out when he smiled. His eyes were as green as the grass in summer, and he looked younger than what he really was. His teeth weren't perfectly straight, but they were somewhat straight. Henry's nose was round, like his face. His lips were small, and his cheeks were a rosy shade of pink.

"Okay, boss. Shouldn't I . . . we check out the Sanfield Pub first?" Raphael asked.

"No, I think another team went there already."

"Then, wouldn't they also go to her apartment?"

"No questions, now go before you waste anymore time."

Suddenly, Henry started to choke. He then collapsed, leaving everyone in shocked.

Judy's Apartment, Belle City, 9:44a.m

Denella broke the front door down and walked inside of the apartment. Knocking on the door for minutes had her hands tired. She had her gun and flashlight out since the apartment was dark. It smelled stale and stuffy and she could hear the sound of mice scratching the walls. As she searched the rooms, she found an opened window.

"Small world, isn't it?"

Denella spun around quickly. She sighed. "What are the chances of seeing you again? Ralph, right?"

"Close enough, it's Raphael." He corrected. "I found out that we were both registered as agents in 2009. Kind of funny, isn't it, Denella?"

"Oh, so now you're stalking me?" she asked, smiling.

"I wouldn't call it stalking." he said as he smirked.

"Then what would you call it?" she questioned.

Just as Raphael was about to answer, they both heard a crashing sound. It was coming from the kitchen.

"What was that?" Denella inquired.

Before they could get out their weapons, someone came out the kitchen and pulled the trigger to their gun. Denella and Raphael recognized the person's face. The bullet zipped through the air and before it could peel into Denella's skin, Raphael jumped in front of her and it dug its way through his skin.
