The Arrival

NIKITA:  

When I stepped out of that jet and onto the slick airstrip in Hong Kong, I felt... like I had a purpose, for once in my life.

JENNA:  

That's a very liberating feeling.

NIKITA:  

Yes. At the time, all I wanted was to grow in my new career. Career doesn't describe it perfectly, but you get what I mean. 

I was too young and foolish to realize that my brother was right, I was throwing away my freedom.

JENNA:  

But you reconnected with your brother eventually, when was that?

NIKITA:  

Quite a while later.. it was way too late. 

I just can't believe how wrong I was, and how right he was.

JENNA:  

But like you said, you didn't have much of a choice.

NIKITA:  

No, Jenna, we always have a choice. Always. 

It took me 20 years to learn this lesson from Pavel. So you could call me dumb... 

But, I was never the bold leader my brother was. 

Sometimes, I wonder if he's out there somewhere... hiding from Ri Zhou.


*Nikita stops and breathes in*


NIKITA:  

So at this point, I had already met Li and Cheng, but there were two more new faces outside the jet.

PAST

This is... not how I expected any of this to go. I feel so... important.

If only my brother joined me! This is the next step for us!

I guess it's time to say goodbye to this awesome jet.


NIKITA:  

Ri Zhou, thank you... for everything.

RI ZHOU:  

My pleasure.


*Ri Zhou looks at Li*


RI ZHOU:  

Introduce him to your team.


*Li nods*


LI:  

Of course.


*Li exits the jet*


LI:  

Come with me, Xinshen. I'll introduce you to the team. 

You will be joining these two and working underneath me for a while. 

The first job will tell me if you have what it takes, and if you're really as special as Ri Zhou thinks you are.


The first mission.
