Mateo was busy in his corner of the base after enjoying some of the nice climate of Kaitiaki and relaxing for a bit, which he needed after the closeness of the last mission. But now it is time to start gearing up since Skye told them that there will be a briefing tonight. He has no idea of what the next mission will be, but hopefully, it will not be as close as the last mission. It had been a while since he had used a wingsuit, and was glad he still knew how to use it. Though Mateo would gladly use his normal suit any day.
Though as Mateo was prepping and making sure that his suit was ready to go. Did he step back and think about that promise that Skye made to him. There were Tejedors at that party, and while he stuck to the mission and Thiago, for Skye's sake, was not there. He still missed a chance to get real intel on Thiago and figure out where that he is. Sure, there was a chance he could not capture the Tejedor that was there, but when it comes to getting his revenge on Thiago. Mateo did not care after hunting him for years.
Anger started to grow in him, and he stood there completely still in thought as he suddenly punched a nearby wall. Angerly breathing as he tried to calm himself down. Another missed opportunity to add to the list of failures in trying to find Thiago. He has to come in his sights sooner or later and if Skye will keep her promise. Mateo never told her why he wants Thiago dead. That Thiago, with some of his goons, invaded his house and killed his parents before nearly killing him. Mateo still has the bullet scar to prove it.
Mateo knows why Thiago did this. It was personal since it was Mateo's father who killed Thiago's brother while Mateo's father was still with AFEUR. Apparently, the two were very close, and he felt the need to avenge his brother after taking over the cartel.
He then slowly leaned against the wall as he calmed down. Another thought entered his mind. Mateo has been burned before by people he thought he could trust. The DNI betrayed him possibly from the start, and could he be betrayed by Raven? That remains to be seen, but he has been more cautious this time around, and if going with Raven is a good idea, he will have to see. Until then, business as usual as so far he thinks Raven is good. His teammates certainly help with that, though it took time to get used to being around someone who is nearly eight feet tall.
So, after calming down, Mateo resumed his prep work and relaxed a bit. He should be ready once the briefing is close to begin and they will be told what the next mission will be, whatever that might be.
