It happened during the fouth day of their stay on the island, two days before official start of the Python´s tournament. Delivery boy arrived, early that morning, bringing short message for Mr. Moon. Written on small piece of paper was short note:
“They are ready”
There was no signature attached, but Gabriel didn´t need it to understand. Paying off the young man, the Professor didn´t mention this event to neither Mustang nor Myra, hoping that since he was receiving messages like that on regular basis they won´t pay much attention to this one.
The rest of his day went as usual, gentle sparring with Myra, some individual training and lots of time spend alone in his room reading in futile attempt to forget the tournament that was getting closer and closer with every passed hour. He stayed there after dinner until the clock on nearby tower struck half past ten. He wasn´t waiting on this specific hour but rather until the loud snoring coming form the next room announced, that Beast, his oversize dog, finally fell asleep. Normally, he would take her with them, but with Mustang around he figured it would be for the best to let her with him. The always cheeky malamute wouldn´t let her new friend to disappear on her. And dog so big jumping and woofing around should make following them impossible even for a CP agent.
So, with her fast asleep, the professor sneaked out of his room and walked across narrow corridor to the door from Myra´s room.
“Myra, are you still awake?
Gentle sound, so quiet that it was barely audible echoed through the darkness. The Professor hoped, that his assistant was still awake as the last thing he wanted was entering uninvited into room inhabited by sleeping assassin.
