David was left to look out for trouble he had landed in 1925 not his favorite year to be honest he found it dull and boring and sat down on a church step which looked like it had been bombed and left, smiling he watched the people go by ignoring him. David hummed the energy inside him bubbling.
Colonel Connor Knight stepped out of his escape pod glancing at the time and date index on his way out, it told him it was 1925. The last thing he remembered was gearing up then jumping into an escape pod to try to avoid a spacial anomoly. He had timed things wrong and when he ejected from his ship, who's crew was now all dead, he got sucked into this anomoly and had been spit out into the past, spacial anomolies did things like this. As he was part of the Earth Federation's new military program called "Torchwood" , the "time police" for the Earth Federation, he was trained for this sort of thing. As he stepped out into 1925 his escape pod shimmered out behind him becoming "out of synch" with time, until he called it back with his key it would remain undetected by any normal means.
*oh shit my key! Dammit! My key i left it in the damn escape pod!*
The Colonel cursed aloud then turned around to make sure that the escape pod was really gone. After some more cursing and even kicking a nearby tree he finally looked at his surroundings. he was in the middle of a park, across the street was a church and on the sidewalks people were moving about eyes downcast and hurrying to their destinations, all except for one man, the man on the church step.
*That man is out of place... Lemmie index him..* The colonel thought to himself reaching towards his belt where his T.I.D (Time Indexing Device) was located, but before he got to it a woman screamed, started crying and started saying somthing to him at the same time.
"P-p-lease dont shoot.. Here ill give you money my wallet anything... please just dont sshoot..!" The woman threw a wad of money onto the ground. Connor raised a eyebrow and relaxed his arm, the woman seeing this turned around and ran as fast as she could, even faster than that actually, away from Connor. The Colonel was left confused for a moment, then looking at his belt next to his T.I.D he understood why the woman reacted this way. On his belt next to his T.I.D was his pistol holster, with the pistol in it, and slung behind back was his SCAR, a fully automatic rifle and on the opposite side of his waste from his pistol was his OKC 3S, a long and very intimidating bayonet/fighting knife, in its sheath. The woman thought Connor was about to mug her.
Looking around to see if anyone noticed the scene the woman had created Connor bent down and took the wad of money, put it into his back pocket, then took out his T.I.D and scanned the man on the church step.
*hmmm... Definatly not from this time but cant get an index on him..*
Connor walked across the street to the church and sat down next to the lone man on the church steps. " Why dont you tell me where your from,what time and why you're here. Before you say anything about what im talking about and why you should answer, you should note i already know that you are definatly human and NOT from this time. I am Colonel Connor Knight from Torchwood , a division of the Earth Federation's military and right now i see 20 or so ways to kiill you, most of them will creat a scene and involve bullets but a few i can do without creating a scene. Also you might want to note sonic devices will NOT work in rendering my weapons disfunctional, and even if you did manage to render them harmless i still have a knife and other means. Now why dont you answer my question of where your from,what time and why you're here." Connor finally stopped scanning the the area with his eyes for danger and looked the man in his eye, seeing his face up close for the first time.
Emily had been walking peacefully down the sidewalk when put of no where a pod of some sort landed in the area infront of her. Taking cover behind the side of a nearby shed she watched as a man got out and looked at some sort of device. Then the pod faded and the man seemed to realise something. Cursing he began to kick a tree making Emily giggle. When he began to finally get his barrings Emily stayed out of sight. Suddenly she heard a woman give a cry of terror and throw money on the ground at the mans feet. He was mugging her! Emily watched as the man picked up the money and seemed to pause for a moment. Then seeming to have come to some odd conclusion he walked over to a man sitting on the church steps. Mustering her courage Emily decided to confront the man. Striding purposefully over to him she placed her hands on her hips.
"How dare you," she said angrily smacking him hard on the face, "that us no way to make money. I'm not sure what sewer you grew up in, but that will not be tollerated here."
Turning around Emily saw a police officer. Even better. Emily began to walk over to the officer so she could have the man arrested. This wasn't going to be such a bad day after all.
(lol she's such a trouble maker. :P)

"Oh great... just great.... "
Connor got up and faced the man on the church step.
"I better deal with this real quick... when i get back you have some questions to answer. Dont even try running."
Even before finishing his sentence Connor was up and running towards the police officer. Brushing past the woman he began talking to the police officer.
"Sir, I am Private James Wilkinson of the Special Forces military department, I was field testing a top secret stealth device, im afread i cant tell you much about it, when the device failed and a civilian woman saw me. This woman panicked after seeing my weapons, thinking she was being robbed, and drop this wad of money for me and turning around to run. She was wearing a light brown dress, a black hat and carrying a black purse. Do you mind returning this money to her and explaining the situation? I'm sure she would reward to and i would much appreciate it. Thank you, sir."
Connor handed over the wad of money to a very shocked, old, police man and turned around and headed toward the man on the church step. Then thinking of something he abruptly stoped and turned around facing the police officer.
"Oh yes i forgot to show you my identification. Here it is."
Connor reached into his front pocket and brought out a laminated sheet of blank paper, at least a blank paper is what he would see but not the police officer or anyone else. Seeing this paper the police officer suddenly stood to attention and saluted. Connor then nodded in acknowledgment to the officer and turned back around to walk towards the man on the church step once again, passing by this woman that accused him of mugging the woman he scared, he winked at her and went to sit back down next to the man. Facing him he said three words;
"So answers. Now."
Emily watched in shock as the man somehow got the police officer to believe him, and headed back towards the man on the church steps. When she caught his cheeky wink she frowned and walked back over to the men.
"Who are you," she said incredulously, "I mean come on! That was rediculous! I'd you were really who you said you were then you wouldn't be trying a device here. What are you really up to?"
Emily placed her hands on her hips and waited for the man to answer. Whatever his reason she was not letting him out of her sight. There was something strange about him.

" I really dont have time for this ma'am. As i already explained im from the special forces department of the military, my name is Private James Wilkinson and i was field testing a stealth device. Why here? 'Cause theres lots of people that will tell me when my device has failed by crowding around me, screaming and possibly running away. Now if you will leave me be i am interrogating this man for my report on my device."
*Man this woman is really starting to annoy me...*
"Does that suffice as an explanation? Because that is all the military has authorized for me to tell you. Now could you please step aside and let me finish, no, start interrogating this man."
The Hider emerged from his time jump, and quickly began to check his equipment. He had been forced to do an Emergency Temporal Jump after the Temporal Dreadnought he had been on was destroyed. He soon realised how far back he jumped, but when he first saw Connor, he could not believe what he was seeing. It seemed he was not the only person out of time, and that suspicion was confirmed once he saw the Time.Indexing.Device, he knew he was time agent. Similar to himself. The Hider reached into his pocket and pulled out an index. A completely different design to Connor's but it served the same purpose.
His was built in the year 2010 back when served the Time Jumpers so it was a little out dated. Now he worked for Time Stealer and the Black Corps. He never liked Time Stealer but he missed being an assassin. The strange thrill of the kill. Being a Time Jumper gave him limits but being part of Black Corps allowed him to do almost anything.
He had a few weapons in his arsenal most of which securely concealed under his long red coat. Unlike Connor who made himself stand out like a sore thumb. The concealed weapons were three throwing knifes, a samurai sword that he called Suzie although its actual name was the Black Dragon, and dual Desert Eagles.
He noticed the small red light on the index light up. Someone was contacting him. He put him into a temporary cloak. Too anyone who was watching he would have just disappeared. A hologram appeared, it was James.
"Hider, why are you in 1925?"
"Well they were complications sir," replied the Hider
"Complications?" the hologram folded its arms.
"The Time Ship was destroyed by the enemy. I only just got out in time," the Hider then said, "the cargo is safe though."
"Good in the wrong hands, it would ruin the plan," James seemed to smile.
"You haven't even told me what the plan is!" exclaimed the Hider.
"Consider it a surprise Hider," said the hologram disappearing.
The Hider placed the index in his pocket and sighed. He then drew a key attached by a silver chain to a grey stopwatch.
*How could this be important?* thought the Hider.

Out of the corner of his eye Connor saw someone appear then disappear in a flash of red.
"Something's wrong. Very wrong. You come with me," Connor said facing the man on the church step, then turning around to face the woman," and you... If you want to see things beyond your world or comprehension then come with me also. My real name is Connor Knight, Colonel Connor Knight, and yes im part of the military, not this military, but a military for Earth itself. Oh and not from this time period either."
*Damn, i hate having to blow my cover... And she wont believe me.. but He will. And when will i ever get to get answers out of him?* Connor thought while walking towards the flash of red without looking behind him to see if they were following. Actually walking was an understatement, he was practically sprinting but he did it in a way that made it look like he was walking. It was something that takes years of practice to master, and you'd have to be in the military for all those years to really make use of it.
As Connor got close to reaching the place where he saw the person disappear in the flash of red he unlatched the strap keeping his knife from falling out accidentally and did the same for the holster on his pistol. Putting his hand on the big pistol's grip , ready to draw it out in a split second, Connor approached the location and drew his T.I.D out. He scanned and found no one there but a definite, and huge, temporal distortion wake.
* Probably left by a time jump.. possibly a last resort for escape. A fugitive maybe? No, a fugitive couldnt do this. A operative, and not one from Torchwood. An enemy till further noted.*
Connor took a quick look behind him to see if they had followed, but he did this in a way if the person, *Or thing..* he thought, reappeared he would still see and be able to react with the same deadly, quick, force.
Emily stared at Connor in suprise for a moment before quickly following after him. Another time? How was that possible? He did seem odd and out of place. Was it possible though? She was determined to find out. When he ppulled out a strange device she looked over his shoulder at it. She could see what looked like a blob on the screen of the device, but Connor put the device away before she could see more. Looking at the area where the device showed the blob to be she saw nothing. What was there? When she saw Connor looking back at her she decided it was a sign that it was ok to talk.
"What's there," she asked, "what was that thing showing? What was that thing anyway?"

" Its a Time Indexing Device. It tells me if there are any temporal distortions, what time period something or someone is from and if something is out of place. There's a lot more but it would take to much time to explain. Something or someone is here. Right now, as in 3 feet in front of me. He, she, it is listening to our conversation right now. At least i think so... The signature shown on my device is showing readings a stealth device creates. Possibly a portable cloaking device."
Connor then drew his pistol and pointed it at the place his T.I.D was getting the strongest readings from. Eyes open and scanning the environment. He couldn't be sure where the person was but he was defiantly near. The T.I.D indicated within 8 feet.
* Good thing this place isn't in the plain sight of the public... Otherwise we would be in deep shit... Guns plus public dont make a pretty sight in any time period.. *
"Keep your eyes open ma'am. Oh and if you have anything you can defend yourself with i suggest you take it out now."
"We know your out there... Show yourself you coward!" Connor shouted into the emptiness, or apparent emptiness in front of him.
