FRAME 15 /

" Not always , only when they like them " said Grant . He changes the conversation .

" We should place some of the charges lower down the wall barrier " .

Selina picks up some charges and climbs down the rock wall .

" I can place them Grant just point where you want them to go " , she says .

" Careful it looks very slippery Selina ".

The Captain and the Princess walk down a passage way along side a large Black Vimana Hanger .

" A sub base , first time I have been this close to a Black Vimana , why no guards Marra ", asks the Captain .

FRAME 20 /

The Captain and the Princess Marra arrive at the southern barrier of the Lava lake and begin to place their explosive charges . 

" Will these explosives of yours Matthew be strong enough to break the rock wall " , the Princess asks.

" I think so Marra ....the Admiral said they are the smallest and most powerful mini mines we have and should get the job done " , replies the Captain .

 

FRAME 21 /

 

" One more mine to place " says the Captain .

 

" We should hurry Matthew ...patrols along these corridors are few , but they do happen " , Marra warns the Captain . 

 

" Thats the last one in place ...lets get back Princess to Maru and the others " , says the Captain .

 

 

 

The teams return and meet up with Maru who has set up his control desk in a rock space .

" All mines in place Maru its over to you " says the Captain . 

I have them all on live signals , everything is ready Sir " , replies Maru .

" Give us enough time to get back to the main Cavern and the SEATRAK and set everything to auto ....including the anti tamper device on your control in case it gets a visitor . Everyone back to the Cavern " , says the Captain .
