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.
That's a very liberating feeling.
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.
But you reconnected with your brother eventually, when was that?
Quite a while later.. it was way too late.
I just can't believe how wrong I was, and how right he was.
But like you said, you didn't have much of a choice.
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*
So at this point, I had already met Li and Cheng, but there were two more new faces outside the jet.
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.
Ri Zhou, thank you... for everything.
*Ri Zhou looks at Li*
Introduce him to your team.
*Li exits the jet*
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.
