Now, we not only know where the Raven’s command post is, but we also know who is leading them. Wouldn’t you say that such information is essential?” Nicole asked as she raised her eyebrows.
“Definitely. As the saying goes, ‘To know one’s own strength and the enemy’s is the surest way to victory’.” Carl replied.
“That’s right. I don’t really know much about Cara. But now that we know their name, it’ll be easy for me to look up this person’s details. On top of that, with our knowledge of the command post’s exact location, we can do a precision strike when we need to.” Nicole said with a smirk.
“If we can defeat them, we’d rid ourselves of the current obstacle, clearing a path for our supplies to enter. And the cherry on top? We’ll be free to transport our items in and out while we set up defenses at key areas. When that is done, it would be a lot easier for us to bring our supplies in.” Nicole explained the plan as she looked Carl in the eyes.
“You’re right. If we do that, we could cripple the Raven’s forces, and they would lose one of their key members. That’s one hurdle out of the way if we ever wish to take them down in the future,” Carl said, having finally understood Nicole’s intentions.
A look of admiration then appeared on his face. “Nicole, you’re really amazing. I guess everything is in your hands now.”
“Moments ago, I was still concerned about your safety. I didn’t stop to think that you had such a brilliant strategy in mind. All I can say is, I’m actually pretty happy to have you here.” Carl said, finally speaking his mind.
Nicole looked at him with a smile. “We’ve known each other for years. Do you think I wouldn’t know what you’re up to?”
“Let’s finish this quickly. Later on, we’ll go to the central control room and discuss our next step in detail.” Nicole said to Carl.
After they were done eating, the both of them made their way to the central control room. Then, Carl brought a map out for Nicole to peruse.
“Take a look. This is where we’re at now.” Carl pointed on the map for Nicole.
“It seems like that person wasn’t lying. There really are two entrances and two exit routes.” Nicole stared at the map of the base and said.
Then, she carefully searched for the command post where Cara was.
“This is the main street. This is…Why can’t I find it?” Nicole asked, unable to locate the command post even after staring at the map for a long time.
“We’re not in a hurry. Come, sit down and look through it slowly.” Carl advised.
“I’m not in a hurry. This map doesn’t seem to be detailed enough. Do you have a more detailed one?” Nicole asked, thinking that she could not have misinterpreted or overlooked anything on the map.
“Let me find it.” Carl opened a drawer and began to flip through the stack within it.
“I’ve found it. There’s a better one here.” Carl took the map out and laid it open on the table.
“This one is a lot more detailed compared to the one before.” Nicole commented before continuing to locate the Raven’s command post.
“I’ve found it.”
