We start where we left off. Cooper and Jaune are driving to the "site", with Adrien and Marinette in the back.
Cooper: He'll be fine..Once we stabilized his condition, we can begin curing him.
Jaune: We'rr coming up on the "site". Here..
He hands Marinette a piece of paper.
Jaune: The address is on that. You can go ahead and text your friends.
Marinette: Okay, i will.
Marinette takes out her phone and texts the address to her friends.
Cooper: We'rr here.
The car stops as Marinette looks out of the window, seeing a Warehouse on the dock close to the rivera.
Marinette: (getting out of the car) Where are we?
Jaune: An old warehouse at the docks, right next to the riviera. Nobody comes here anymore.
Cooper: Enough talk, come help me.
Jaune walks to the back door as Cooper opens it and pulls Adrien out, then drags him Marinette grabs his and her bag as she follows them. They stop in front of a door with a keypad.
Cooper: Marinette, open the door. The code is "122495"
Marinette walks in front of them. She inputs the code.
*BEEP...BEEP.... BOOP... KA-CHINK*
She opens the door as Jaune and Cooper walks in, carrying Adrien. She comes in and closes the door. She looks around, seeing the warehouse abandoned and the shelves empty as Cooper and Jaune carry drag Adrien to a staircase.
Marinette: Wow... this place looks...
???: Old? Because it is.
Marinette looks up, seeing Pyrrha on top a flight of stairs.
Pyrrha: Due to today's economy, this warehous has never been used...till now.
Cooper: Pyrrha is the "scanner"?
Rose: Nathan has it ready. (sees Marinette) Oh... you brought Ms. Dupain-Cheng.
Jaune: Agreste's friends were concerned, so we brought the girl as "relief"....
Cooper: and we'll have more on the way.
Pyrrha: I see...
Jaune and Cooper go up the stairs, dragging Adrien up, with Marinette following. They follow Pyrrha down a hallway into a large room.
Marinette looks around, seeing a large computer set up, A 40 in. flat screen TV, a sofa and 2 recliners, a kitchen set up, a line of serves against a wall, and 2 strange chairs (resembling lounge chairs with one arm rest), and a computer terminal between the two.
Marinette: (dropping the bags right next tot the door) What is this place?
???: The secret to "Project: Creed".
She see's Nathan come out of another door.
Nathan: (sees Marinette) Oh, does mean we've been compromised?
Cooper: It was a risk we had to take. Now, get on the computer while we prep him.
Jaune and Cooper lay Adrien down on to one of the strange chairs while Nathan gets on the computer and Pyrrha on the terminal. They put his right arm into the arm rest, where he's cuffed to. Then they put a headband with wires on him.
Cooper: Get the scanner online and put him in a simulation, then we can start synchronization.
Nathan: On it.
Nathan logs in and opens a program.
The scanner activates as the servers come online.
Pyrrha: Intiating scan.
The scanner lights up as a blue light moves below Adrien, from head to toe.
Pyrrha: Begining simulation.
Nathan: He's in.
Cooper: Good, now we wait till he's ready.
*BEEP BEEP BEEP*
Nathan: Cooper, perimeter cameras picked up something.
Jaune: I think i know who it might be.
Cooper: Pull up the feed of Camera #4.
Nathan pulls up the camera feed on the flat screen. A live feed of the door is pulled up. All of them see Nino, Alya, and everyone outside.
Cooper: It's them.... let em in.
The door is unlocked as they are going.
Jaune: Kill the feed.
The feed is taken down.
Cooper: How are the boy's vitals?
They turn around, seeing Alya, Nino and everyone coming in.
Alya: I am so writing about this.
Nathan: Sure, go ahead. Why don't you just tell the world that...
Cooper: Enough, Nathan
???: Mr. Stérn...
The kids move out of the way, making a path for Gabriel, Nathalie, the "Gorllia", André, and Roger.
Gabriel: ...What has happened to my son?!?
Gabriel turns, seeing Adrien in the scanner.
He rushes to Adrien sides, attempting to pull him off the scanner.
Pyrrha: Don't touch him!
Gabriel: And why shouldn't i?
Jaune: If you try to pull him out physically, you'll risk permanent mental damage and lead to any mental diseases, especially dementia.
Gabriel stands back up.
André: Mr. Stérn, is it true that you and your brother are....
Jaune: We are. I am Loup and he is Renard.
Gabriel: So it was you!!!
Gabriel walks towards Jaune. The "Gorilla" walks behind him.
Gabriel: It's because of you, my son is....
Cooper: Hear us out, Gabriel. We have a reason for what we did.
Roger: Then let us hear it.
Cooper: It all started when we were young, when our father disappeared. Our mother wouldn't tell us what happened, but was heartbroken. So much, that she couldn't stay in France, because it was a reminder.
Gabriel: Where are you going with this?
Nathan: Hang on, we'rr getting there.
Jaune: We moved to the U.S where we got started with our lives. You all should know how the four of is got together. A few years before we launched "Project: Creed", our mother passed away. Her last words were "Don't follow our footsteps.". We didn't understand what she meant or why she said it. It would be at least one year when we discovered the truth.
Cooper: While we were going through our parent's things, we discovered audio tapes, labeled as journals. We'd listen to them as owe found out our their occupation. They were the last of a sacred order that had existed throughout history. The "Order" was created to battle a rival cult that seeked to rule humanity from both the shadows and the public. They were close to finishing off the cult, but our father had to sacrifce himself.
Cooper: Then we discovered at map to a order hide out. The found the hideout and discovered that... (pointing to the scanners)
According to the notes we found, it was some type of scanner that allowed us to relieve the memory of our ancestors just by scanning the genetic code with our DNA. We also discovered that there is dangerous "artifacts" in the world. These "artifacts" were created by an ancient civilization with unspeakable power and knowledge. They were sought out by both sides to turn the tides of the secret war.
André: But why "Creed"?
Jaune: "Project: Creed" was merely a cover up, a way for us to complete our objective.
Alya: And what would that be?
Cooper: To gather the remaining artifacts and seal them away in a place where they will forever be forgotten. We would have been successful here in Paris... if it wasn't for Ladybug and Chat Noir.
Jaune: We tried to make them understand and took it easy on them. They still got in our way, but we managed
Marinette: But if you were going easy on them, then there must be a reason why.
Cooper: It was because of their legacy. You see, the Miraculous holders have helped the "Order" in the past, and in return helped them in their battles. They were great allies for the "Order". We would have explain everything to them, but we didn't have enough time.
Gabriel: That still doesn't explain what happened to my son.
Loup: Your son was "awakening". It is a term used to to say the a person is becoming aware of the memories of their ancestor. Your son showed the first symptom 2 days ago, which was a golden flash in the eyes. But your son advance into the third stage when he came in contact with the "apple"
Cooper: The artifact located in the city. It was hidden in the Eiffel Tower as a last request by Gustave Effiel to the "Order". Jaune was recovering it... till Ladybug interfered. After the artifact was picked up by Adrien, he must have activated it. When he did, he must have accessed more memories and experienced an overload.
Jaune: He's now in the third stage. He now has a syndrome where we will act out memories of his ancestors. If he's not stable at this stage, he could....
*BEEP BEEP BEEP*
Red light's flash as an alarm sounds.
Cooper: Pyrrha, what's happening?
Pyrrha: It's the boy, he's de-synchronizing.
Nathan: She means that the boy is losing progress. He's his is becoming unstable
Pyrrha: There's some key data missing. Almost like a....
Coooer: ...missing link...
He grabs the "apple" and grips it.
Cooper: Show me.... show me who we need.
Cooper walks towards the group.
Roger: What are you doing?
Cooper: The scanner says that a missing link is present. Adrien must have obtained a memory of another ancestor. Meaning that he can't stabilize till we find the one person with the missing link. I hope that it might be one of you.
Cooper walks around as the "apple" starts to glow brightly. It flashes when he stops at Marinette.
Cooper: It's you.... quick, get in to the second scanner.
Marinette lies down on to the second scanner. She puts her arm into the arm rest as she's cuffed to it. Pyrrha puts the headband on her.
Jaune: Where is Adrien at?
Pyrrha: It appears he's at the "Island".
Jaune: It acts as a quarantine zone.
Cooper: Marinette, listen to me, you must find Adrien on the Island. When you do, make your way to the "Frozen Forest". Do you understand?
Marinette: I do.
Pyrrha: We'rr ready.
Cooper: When you get to the "forest", that's when will contact you.
Pyrrha: Sending her now!
Cooper: Good Luck!
Marinette's vision gets blurry as everthing around her fades white.
I hoped you liked. Marinette and Adrien are about to begin a journey together, find out how in Chapter 14: Journey to the Stage.
