After spending the morning in her office catching up on paperwork, Julie decided she wanted to be around people. She went to cafeteria, where she had a nice lunch of a sandwich made from leftover meatloaf, some chips and a drink. As she ate her lunch, she heard a rumor that Jason West and Invader had found something interesting in the beach: a message in a bottle.
Julie left the cafeteria, heading back to her office, to make sure her ready bag was..well..ready, and that there was nothing else she needed. Since Julie's very small office is now fairly close to the the dorms, she stopped by, and and when she found the dorm that Detective Discovery was staying in she stopped in, and found the Junior Detective busy at one of the computer tables, looking up something at the computer...reading a book...and listening to something on headphones at the same time.
Julie put her hand on the Junior Detective's shoulder. Discovery was a bit startled, but turned to look and see that it was only her friend Julie Justice. Julie laughed a little, and said,"I'm sorry, Lucy, I didn't mean to scare you. I heard that Agent West and Invader discovered a message in a bottle on the beach earlier, and I thought I might go with them and check it out. Would you like to come, too?"
Before walking down the hallway, Julie stopped and checked both her ready bag and her purse one more time, to make sure she had everything she thought she might need. She also made sure to lock the door to her office too.
"This might be a detective agency...and we might all be very capable detectives...or agents...or whatever...but I think it's still a good idea to lock the door behind you when you leave."
Julie and Detective Discovery begin to walk down the hall, and get in the elevator to go the Tech Department, Julie says,"It's OK if you're a little nervous. But eventually we all have have an adventure like this. And I know that you're still a little shy too, sometimes. But I think you already know Invader, and I promise, Agent West is very nice, too."
Julie and Detective Discovery went down the hall, and turned the corner. The door was open, and they could both see Jason West and Invader were both by the computer analyzing something. Julie knocked loudly on the door, saying,"Ummm...Hello...I heard that you two stumbled on an interesting mystery, and would like some help. I brought one of the Junior Detectives with me. Invader, you know Detective Discovery."
"Well there was a letter in a bottle, that led us to a military record, and a possible ship wreck." Kristine said in excitement. "Furthermore we might have found some places, where they might have made it to."
"I have coordinates to a couple possible locations that the man who wrote the note may have swam to. We'll have to take a boat to get there and I think my boat is probably the best one to take." Jason replied to the group.
Discovery stepped into the tech director's humble office and listened as everyone spoke. Hearing Jason mention taking a boat to find the man sounded like a fun trip and Discovery was excited to go, but it made her wonder. "Agent West, you think he could have survived out there all this time exposed to the elements like that, without any food or fresh water?"
"Being that he was in Vietnam and the locations that he he could have made it to after the wreck, he very well could have survived. All he would have to do to have some form of drinking water would be to boil it and there might have been birds or even vegetation that was safe for him to eat." Jason replied.
