“The crew of the Angel Flame received orders to head out.”

The crew consisted of Soul, Fury, Zest and Captain.

They were a group of very able engineers, and the Navy tasked them to design and build a new submarine for marine research purposes.

Angel Flame was thus born, and it was her first test run.

“Seal the hatch!” Captain ordered.

“Aye aye, Captain!” Fury replied, then later whispered to Zest, “You have no idea how long I waited to say that.” Zest chuckled heartily.

Once the hatch was closed, Soul lowered the submarine into the depths.

“50 metres… a hundred…. hundred-fifty…” Zest spoke aloud as he monitored the depth meter.

“Once we hit four hundred, we should start moving around.” Captain instructed. “Zest, take the wheel!”

That was when Zest realized, he forgot the most vital mechanism of their assembly.
