A few minutes later, a young Chinese woman enters the room and comes over to us. Gia and stand up and walk over to her.
"Good afternoon. Are you Jiyang?" I ask her
"Yes. Cypress, I presume?" I nod.
"And this is Gia." I introduce. Gia shakes Jiyang's hand.
"Yeah, come on back." Jiyang says. She starts walking a bit briskly. We almost have to run to keep up with her.
We reach Jiyang Wong's office just a couple of minutes later. It's not too big, nor too small. We enter and Jiyang goes and sits behind her desk. Gia and I sit in two chairs across from the reporter.
"So, what exactly happened?" The reporter prompts
We tell her everything that had happened earlier that morning. The boat ride. The fishing boat. The dolphin. Everything. Even Gia was able to give a description of the person on the boat.
"Interesting. I think I know who the person on the boat was." Jiyang says. "A mysterious evil that took the shape of a woman who calls herself "The Threat".
"Yeah, I saw a wanted poster in the lobby." I add.
Jiyang nods and then continues, "So, do you have a picture of your missing friend?"
Gia hands Jiyang a picture of Luke, Gia and I in front of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. "It's a fairly recent photo."
"Thank you. This should do." The reporter says. "Well, I hope y'all have a great evening. Incase I need to contact you again, where would I most likely find y'all?"
"Either at the aquarium or the Clearwater Beach Hotel on Gulfview Boulevard." Gia replies.
We leave the reporter's office and then exit the building. Hopefully, with Jiyang's help, we can get more people out there looking for Luke.
As we're walking down the street back towards the aquarium, Gia stops suddenly.
"What is it?" I ask.
"I...uh..I thought I just saw two girls run down behind a building over there." She replies. "But what was weird, is that they were dressed in what looked like gray and white wet suits and they were carrying some kind of sword."
"That is weird." I agree.
"Sounds like an X-File." Gia jokes.
I smile and then we continue walking back to the aquarium. Even though I feel like we did the right thing, I wonder if this publicity will bring about some kind of negative consequences..
