"What will it take to save what remains?" OOC New York City. The city that was the symbol of America through it's history. From the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building, it shows how far American got from being rebels to the most powerful people in the world. The city also had creative and smart people within the city, to show off the creative side of the city. No matter what happened to the city, it will still stand tall and proud. That wasn't until The Black Friday outbreak happened. The entire city fell into chaos, people turned on each other, and power and supplies disappeared quickly. From Javier Cranford, this was heartbreaking to see and hear as he had been living in New York City from his entire life with his family until he left for the army. The city was fine before he had left, the traffic was terrible, the JFK airport was busy with planes going and leaving. How much he wished to be stuck in the New York traffic again. The subway tunnels were empty in a bad way, because there would usually be sounds of a train or some homeless dude near a fire. The darkness and the silence of the tunnels made him feel uneasy as there was nothing but the tunnel that would lead straight to the Grand Central Terminal. He kept walking along the tracks until he saw a flare on the ground, still working as the orange light source was blight. He walked towards the flare until he heard someone called out the code: "Mike November Yankee Charlie." Javier didn't know what the code means, all he knows is that if someone said the code out loud, then they were apart of the squad. Headquarters is still in damage control from the outbreak, trying to send out other agents across the country is hard shit. He repeated the code to the only other guy in the tunnel and the guy said to him in a serious manner, "You must be Newcastle then." Newcastle shook his head as he advanced towards the guy and said to him, "But, you can call me Javier if you wish to." "I'd rather call you Newcastle." the man said as he began to walk pass Javier, "And by the way, my name is Ghost." Ghost kept walking away from Javier and towards the rendezvous point. Javier sighed as he whispered to his self, "Not one of those guys." and walked towards Ghost. Ten minutes of walking later was met with Javier's phone buzzing like crazy. He quickly grabbed the blue tooth headset from his jacket pocket and slipped it on. "Go ahead HQ." "Confirm your identity before we talk." the mysterious voice said clearly and in a serious manner, like Ghost did. Javier said his code out loud as Ghost turned to see what Newcastle was doing. "Alpha 114 Bravo Xeta Epsilon 251." There was a brief moment of silence on the other side. He already knew whoever was talking to him was punching in his identification code. Javier walked towards Ghost with the headset still on and waiting for the voice to come back. Ghost waited for Newcastle to come towards him, so they can continue the walk. As soon as Javier met with Ghost, they began to walk again to the terminal. A minute later, his phone buzzed again as Javier answered it. "What's your ETA to the rendezvous point?" the voice asked Newcastle. Ghost placed down a device, which projected onto the ground and showed their location. The hologram map also showed Grand Central Terminal near them. Javier looked at the map and then said to the voice, "Around five to eight minutes." Ghost grabbed the device and placed it back in his backpack as he and Newcastle kept on walking. Javier asked the lady about the two other agents and the status on them. The voice said, "They are on their way. Just meet at the rendezvous point and then head somewhere safe. Communication from this point forward will be kept to a minimal. The Division will feed updates and priorities to you periodically via the CaT and your Echo. Good luck, Agent Cranford and Agent Winstead." Ghost sighed as he heard his last name and saw Javier's grin. "Winstead. Nice last name, Ghostead." Javier said in a funny manner and kept on walking as he could hear Ghost's disgusted noise at the mashup of his code name and last name. Another five minutes of walking got them to Grand Central Terminal as Javier and Ghost saw how empty it was. It was odd for them to see one of the places with the most traffic be so empty. They got up to the station as they felt a sudden chill and realized that the place lacked any power. Javier saw the stairs and said to Ghost, "Come on, let's go up the stairs and wait for the other two agents to show up." He raced up the steps as he got up to the top before Ghost, who was walking slowly up the steps. And the upper floor, the main floor with the famous clock on it, was also abandoned. Javier grabbed one of his flares and started the flare up as he threw it towards the clock, hitting the metal support of it. He turned around as soon as he saw Ghost finished with the walk upward and said to him, "Alright, this is our rendezvous point. We will split up and look for supplies at one of the many shops and restaurants near us. However, don't leave the terminal." "Alright, Newcastle. I will go to the balcony level and check the restaurants at the level." Ghost said as he walked away from Newcastle to scout out the level. "Okay, then. I will check out the Lexington Passage. Good luck, Ghost." Javier said as he walked towards the passage.
