The two days before their mission, Addi spent the time relaxing and helping in the communications room. She enjoyed working with the high-tech equipment, monitoring data from space and the off-world teams. She trusted Takari with whatever information they learned, just as Takari trusted her with the secrets she had learned during any time spent with the Tok'ra. They had no choice really, and each would stop the other from revealing what they shouldn't...they both had that control over Addi's body and mind.
That first night there hadn't been any games after dinner with everyone going their own way. Keith had been polite to her and had at least smiled but hadn't said much. She'd agreed with him, it had been awhile.
During their briefing for this mission, Addi had been pleased to meet Dr. Kenyon, their newest member. Takari had found the doctor interesting to talk to as well.
Addi nodded at Andrea
and stepped away from the team, excusing herself past Michaela
. Walking down the steps of the stargate, Addi hoisted her assault rifle over her shoulder and scanned the area around them. She listened carefully but heard nothing unusual, then began to see the smallest details. Faint drag marks and uneven footprints. Addi walked a few yards down the dirt path then paused and held up a hand when she spotted the broken branches and still crushed wild grass.
"Over here," she called out. "Someone's come through in the last couple of days, dragging something away from not toward the stargate. The footprints are offset, though. Whoever it was might have been just been tired, or even hurt," Addi commented, looking at Eva
. "They went that way toward the water."
Through the trees a faint sound of water fowl could be heard, which meant probably a lake. "I think we should check that out first, Major," Addi said. "If someone is close by, we ought to know."
When Andrea nodded, Addi took a few steps and pushed through the brush and hanging branches, her gun pointed ahead of her. Dressed in the usual woodland BDU's and equipment, she turned her hat backward and also drew her combat knife from its sheath at her waist. The thick trees were no place to be firing off a gun if it could be helped, at least not close up. Hearing the others behind her, Addi made a trail until she reached a clearing. Peering through the trees at the lakeshore, Addi motioned the Major to have a look.
OOC: Hope I didn't go too far!!
