It was glorious up there. Not many birds flew that high - some falcons, hawks, other raptors. Every once in a while some of them would come near Nicole, probably thinking, Man, that is a dang ugly bird. This high up ,the land below took on a checkerboard effect of greens and browns, a few greys from some towns and cities. Cars looked like busy ants moving purposefully down their trails.
Nicole glanced down and focused. Then she scowled. A humvee, it looked armed, and it was heading toward the abandoned part of downtown. Who would have any business down there. It was…well, abandoned. Coincidence? Don’t think so. Nicole made one of her famous snap decisions, the kind that everyone remembers later for being either really dumb or really ingenious. Though she heard more about the first kind.
