Earth: South Okanagan - 1 Week Prior

Robert let out a deep sigh as he sat down on a rock and wiped the sweat off his brow. Was definitely a hotter day than he had wanted, but this area always seemed pretty warm, except for the wind. Which decided to be absent today. Robert smirked lightly as a voice called out to him.

"Getting tired Mr. Langley?" The words playfully drifted from an attractive girl with blonde hair tied up in a pony tail. She, like Robert, was dressed in athletic clothes for their hike.

"Careful Adelaide, you're starting to sound like a secretary." Robert teased.

"Oh? Do you take all your secretaries out for hikes into the Okanagan mountains?" She said grinning.

"No, just the one's I'm not paying." They both laughed for a moment as the girl sat down with Robert. They rummaged through their backpacks to pull out water bottles and take a deep drink. Robert was enjoying the sight of the lakes and mountains, something that made this place truly one of the most beautiful in the world. He was going to wax a little poetically, but soon felt an elbow gently nudge his rib. Robert looked to Adelaide, who was pointing to the city's airport down below them. There was a gleaming, silver ship that was landing, and after a moment of watching, Robert recognized the distinctive logo of Langley Industries.

"That's for you I take it?" Adelaide asked a little disappointed.

Robert sighed, smirking a little. "Yeah, looks like we'll have to continue this another time." He pulled out his phone and made a quick call for a ship to pick him up and take him and Adelaide back to the city, quicker than hiking.


Mercury: Taiyō Shipyard - Present

The 16 hour long shuttle flight had been mostly uneventful for Robert. He kept quite throughout by keeping headphones on and listening to music, as well as pretending to sleep at times. No offense was intended by this, Robert simply wanted to enjoy his music on the long flight, and allow his mind to drift to other places beyond the confines of the small ship.

Once they had reached their destination, everyone hurriedly exited the shuttle, some possibly due to the remarks of the man who identified himself as the First Mate. Robert was more worried about his stuff than anything else however, so in trying to ensure he had everything together, he ended up being the last person to step off. Following the group, they all began to introduce themselves to the Blackbird's head of security.

He put his hand up and gave a little two finger wave. "Robert Langley, from Earth. Pleasure to be aboard." A soft smile rested on his face as he finished introducing himself.
