Chapter One: Descent Just outside Nice, France 0700 The wind around the CaldGen chopper slowly died down as the blades slowed their rotation and a few of the heliport workers started on refilling the tank and making sure everything was still in working order. It wasn't a terribly long flight the chopper would be making but CaldGen had been spending exorbitant amounts of money to make sure everything was running as smoothly as possible. They were doubly prepared today, however. It was the first time that they would be entertaining guests on their very hush-hush private island. Rumors had made their way through the workers at the heliport and through Nice itself on what could be on the island, some rumors stated it was a resort for the mega-rich, others thought that it was being used for cloning or possibly cryostasis experiments. In any case, no matter who asked the CaldGen employees offered little as information for them, telling them to wait for an official statement from the company itself. Before the workers could ask the chopper pilot any more information a black SUV with the CaldGen logo on the side rolled up to the heliport and the back door opened, letting a young man out. Matt Hudson had quite enjoyed his ride to Nice, he'd never ridden in a private jet before and he was rather impressed with the hospitality that CaldGen had extended him all because of his professor's sway with the group. As he rode in the back of the vehicle he watched the French countryside roll past as they neared the heliport. He couldn't help but have a huge grin on his face, it had been there since he had been told what he'd be seeing on the island: "L'Isle de Nuage." It wasn't really a big secret that InGen had crafted dinosaurs but when he had found out from his professor that another company had somehow crafted their own and they were allowing a select few into their park and he was sending Matt in his stead so he could continue focus on his research. The minute he found out he began packing, never in his wildest dreams did he think he could get to see what Dr. Sattler described, although her warnings about the danger echoed in the back of his mind his excitement overrode those thoughts. As Matt stepped out of the SUV he made sure to check himself over, he was dressed fairly decently, hiking boots, a pair of dark jeans, a black t-shirt and his dark sunglasses. He wanted to make sure that he was presentable in case there were pictures taken. He smiled as a CaldGen employee approached him. "Ah, Mr. Hudson, it seems you're the first to arrive. Welcome. I'm sorry to say however, that the chopper isn't ready and we will have to wait for the others to arrive. We have, however, set up a nice little seating area and we have some food prepared for just this situation while we wait. Feel free to help yourself." The man smiled politely and gestured to the small seating area in what Matt would consider a shack, but it was pleasant looking enough so he didn't question it. "Oh, sure thing." Matt smiled, heading to a seat and plopping down, wondering what other kinds of people would be on this tour.
