Caroline tapped her foot in impatience. She hated waiting, especially for something this important. It was also a chilly night which was not helping her situation. She hugged her arms around her waist being careful to not drop the messenger bag strung over her shoulder. She was trying to ignore the wind beating against her and stay out of site of the imposing building several hundred yards away from her. She stood behind the rather crude shelter of an oak tree planted on the side of the street. She brushed her brown hair out of her eyes as she heard the sound of approaching footsteps.
Caroline turned quickly and watched the approaching figure with caution. “Who goes there?” she said.
“It’s me, Carol. It’s Lana.” replied the figure.
Caroline breathed a sigh of relief and slouched out of her aggressive stance. “Lana, it is good to see you. What took you so long?”
Lana gasped in exhaustion. Caroline and she were best friends. She had been moving quickly for quite a distance. She brushed her dirty blonde hair behind her ears before she spoke. “I’m sorry. I was afraid of drawing any attention to myself …”
Caroline gave Lana a supportive smile. “It’s fine, you’re just in time. Did you get the codes?”
