"Given that there were infected within running distance of this installation, I can see why your worried about an ambush," Radiant stated. "Others infected taking shelter inside will be within the realm of possibility."
Radiant continued observing the installation. Was splitting up to cover more ground such a good idea? They knew nothing of the layout and if they split into parties of 2, either group would have a significantly harder time to defend themselves against a group like that earlier. Then there was an issue of their communication being down.
"Frankly, I don't like the idea of splitting. We don't know the layout, our radio and comms are down at the moment so we won't be able to tell where either party is at. If we are going to split up, it should be after we've restored the signal in the area. What do you think Medivac?"
"We can waltz up to the entrance and split into 2 parties and loop around the right and left side of the perimeter until we meet with each other. No, there is a better way. Radiant are you up for a solo job?" Medivac asked.
"Oh? You want me to check out the perimeter alone? After all I've said?" Radiant responded playfully.
"Wait! Why is Radiant doing this alone? We should-" Wu interjected.
"Let me finish Wu. You concern for your operators is a fine thing but your tendency to jump straight into conclusions is something you need to work on," Medivac remarked sternly. "As I was about to explain, the three of us will make a loop around the left side of the perimeter. Radiant will cover the right side by herself. Eventually we will see each other and we'll exchange what we found."
"But Medivac, Radiant said it herself! We shouldn't split up!" Ibun said with grave concern. "What if something happens to her? We wouldn't know!"
"I'm touched by your concern Ibun," Radiant replied with a smile. "But I understand Medivac's reasoning. It's also a sign of his confidence in my abilities that I am going alone. I am the fastest and agile among us so there are places that I can reach that you guys can't. Having someone tag along with me would slow me down."
Radiant reached for Ibun's shoulders and held them firmly as if to reassure her concerns. "And besides, this isn't the first time I've worked alone and I don't plan on it being my last. Information gathering and reconnaissance is something that I am intimate with."
Medivac cleared his throat. "If there are no other questions or objections, then let's quickly investigate the front door before we split up and check the perimeters of the facility."@PaulHaynek
