The harsh rocking of the boat had been the only thing to keep Constantine from sleeping through this trip, jerking him about in his cabin where he had been trying to nap in the small cot. By ways of boats went, this wasn't the best one, but it had been what her 'highness' had wanted, at least that was what he was calling her. Lara Croft. Frankly he hadn't been expecting to ever receive a call, let alone an invitation, from the elusive woman. All he knew about her had been from either his mentor, Roth, or from the file that his government kept on her. Even that file was minimal. She was an heiress to a family fortune that would put the Queen of England to shame and he knew that she traveled a lot, that was it. So when she called him up looking for a soldier that could speak the language, knew the territory, and could keep himself alive, he had been left questioning why he had even agreed to this trip. Yeah, he could do all of those things, but why did this very visibly capable woman need a wing man? He was going to be needling away at her until he found out, but for the time being he was content to let it be, at least he had been offered the job. The man had yet to even figure out what exactly she was doing on her way to the northern most part of Europe. All she had told him in their initial introductions had been that she was looking for an artifact somewhere in Norway and needed assistance with the locals.
Tino could guess he just missed being out doing something, anything, besides sitting around at home and trying to act like everything was okay. Maybe that's why he had agreed to this crazy little scheme of hers. Part of him didn't believe for a minute that this was just over an artifact. He was a states boy born and raised, Colorado to be exact, but his dad was from Denmark and had raised him up on the local languages of the area. How Miss Lara Croft knew that, he had yet to figure out. It wasn't in his file anywhere, mainly because he kept that information to himself when he had been enlisted into the marines in hopes of avoiding ever being sent to the place. But, here he was, an ex marine turned mercenary on a boat heading for the one place he never wanted to revisit for the rest of his life.
