You’ve got a message from Glen.
Glen: What’cha doin’?
Ace: Stakeout with Watermark and Windmaker.
Glen: What kind of stakeout?
Ace: Someone’s illegally smuggling domesticated kaiju. They plan to use them in kaiju fights.
John Watermark: What part of “secret mission” did you not understand?
Ace: It’s just Glen.
John Watermark: I don’t care.
Ace: How’d you get into this conversation anyway?
John Watermark: That’s exactly my point. You never know who’s listening.
John Watermark: Or in this case texting.
John Watermark: How do we know that’s really Glen?
Ace: It says so right above the message bubble. Sent by Glen, March 19, 2012.
John Watermark: < : (
Ace: Wow, I didn’t know you knew how to do that!
John Watermark: I’m not *that* old.
Ace: How old are you?
John Watermark: Classified.
Glen: You should’ve let me come. I can help.
John Watermark: Sidekicks aren’t allowed on missions.
Ace: Glen’s not my sidekick. He’s my friend!
John Watermark: By all means, that makes it better. Now I really should have brought him.
David Windmaker: Is this a private conversation or can anyone join?
David Windmaker: We have movement. I see three razorbacks, a bladebeak, five deathfoots, six screechers, and
David Windmaker: Is that a mousecat? What’s a cute kaiju like that doing here?
John Watermark: Probably breakfast.
John Watermark: The “cute” kaijus end up as meals for the customers.
Glen: I think I’m going to be sick. You gotta do something!
John Watermark: What do you think we’re doing here!?
John Watermark: Now get off the line so we can get to work.
Glen: Who says “get off the line” anymore?
Ace: Old people…like John.
John Watermark: *sighs*
