Mann woke up and stretched himself to his limit, the rays of sun causing him thirty seconds blindness; he picked up his training boot, about to start today's one hour compulsory jogs.
He stepped outside his two bedroom flat, only few people on the street. He plugged in an earphone and started listening to one early morning motivational song. Next, he began to exercise.
"Spy 04, package 007 is leaving his house for his routine exercise, copy."
Skarley whispered to the small listening device attached to the collar of her tank top.
"I'm moving in from the south, cover me up," Spy 04 replied.

“Anyway, you'd have to give a report to the head of committee in the next 12 hours, good day!” The device went off.
