(Task Force Head-Quarters) A large screen showed the picture of a desolate, abandoned town. A man stood in front of four seated people who, though young, were the best of the best. Cracking his knuckles, the man at the front called attention and gestured to the picture. "This is Red River. The last picture ever taken of the little town. It was taken a few days ago, before traffic cams and security cams went awol and stopped working. We lost contact with the town, no one is going in or out. We have no idea what's going on, which is why you're here," the man said. He clapped his hands and looked at the group. "Ladies and gentlemen, you're to go into this town and find out what happened, find citizens, find whatever there may be to find." The man headed to the door. "You'll be heading off in ten minutes, there are two trucks waiting outside with anything you might need. Pack up a few other things and get out there fast," he explained. With that, he left the team to do their tasks. ~~~~~~~ Hours later, in Red River Lily peeked out from behind a tree. Two large black trucks were coming into the town and she could sense the humans, even from that distance. With a small smile, she headed off to find her big brother. When she found him, she jumped on his back playfully. "Big brother, can you smell them?" she asked. "There are humans." Meanwhile, Thomas was wandering around, oblivious to the events about to take place. The two trucks went past him, stopping a short distance away. The sudden sight made Thomas jolt, though inwardly he smirked. He stood his ground, waiting for the humans to come out and question him. He looked around, wondering if any of the others had seen them come in. They probably had, but he assumed they were all in their own dark corners. They would show up soon enough. These humans would last as long as a keg of beer at a frat party. Or so he thought.
