Before he approached, she inhaled a large lungful of air and stood in trepidation, hoping he would not divulge her presence.  He looked her straight in the eye as he neared her vicinity and Sandy wondered how he was able to pinpoint her exact location.  It left her baffled as the device she was operating should not allow any penetration.

Mere inches from her; he stopped and bent down as if to retrieve something he had dropped. She carefully moved her head forward, so as not to disturb the rough rock face she was pressed up against, to discover that Jackson had placed an object which looked very much like a com device by her feet.

He quickly stood and brushed himself down, as the officer in charge turned around looking for him.

“What are you doing, Jackson?” he asked.

“Sorry sir, I just dropped my com.” he answered and quickly juggled the device between his hands to add credence to his story.

Once they passed, Sarah remained fixed in her position, but found herself drawn to the mist trailing behind Jackson’s body as he moved forward towards the exit behind his leader.  It seemed to be trying to send some message to her, but her ignorance left her completely baffled by what she saw.

For some reason, this excerpt reminded me of Alex Mac, that TV drama from the 90s, on Nickelodeon. I don't know why; I imagine this story is far more serious, but it did...
