I turned to the source of the explosion. A blue fog was hissing from a small, plastic egg-shaped device. Anna pulled me roughly to the ground.

"Anna, you'll be running interference for the others." Anna nodded... probably didn't dare to contradict my father, with the blackmail material the fucker had. "Keenan, soften them up with blasts from whoever the hell you're fucking this week." Before Keenan or Yukiko could protest the casual insult, he turned to me. "Lieutenant, you'll be bombing the base at Darkside..."
