This is the prologue to the story. This story is slightly AU because Op. T.R.E.A.T.Y and I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S. never happened in it. And I might change a few other details, but they'll be only minor ones.

Disclaimer: I do not own Codename: Kids Next Door. The fantastic Mr. Warburton does.


Friday 10:30 p.m.

Location: Teen Ninja Transport

Chad was on a small Teen Ninja transport. They were going to raid a suspected KND base. It was made of scrap metal and looked fairly small. The location of the base was what made it alarming. The base was on the moon, in a dark shallow crater that obscured it from view.

Many Ninjas were surprised the kids could be clever enough to think of the spot. Chad knew, though, that it was a project made by a faction who many called 'The Elite.' They were a group of eight kids, now teenagers. Nigel Uno, Hoagie Gilligan, Kuki Sanban, Wallabee Beatles, Abigail Lincoln, Patton Drilovsky, Francine Fulbright, and Rachel Mackenzie. All were within weeks of each others birthdays. All of them were decommissioned quietly, without any fuss.

He knew all of this because he had a contact in the KND. The contact had hacked into Numbuh 362's personal files and found the base plans. There were references to the other Elite, proving they were involved. But now they were decommissioned and remembered nothing.

When the Elite had lost their memories it was a blessing for the Teen Ninjas. The once most powerful members of the KND were ready for the taking. Chad had followed Nigel to a CPR class the bald teen was being forced to take. There, to Chad's astonishment, were the other Elite. They said they were there for babysitting reasons. Either because they had younger siblings or they wanted a little cash on the side.

It was very comical, actually. Knowing about their past, Chad could see all the irony of their interactions. Wally and Kuki had been flirting a lot. Chad had to force himself not to laugh. Even the densest of the Teen Ninjas could see they had liked each other in their KND days.

Hoagie and Abby had promptly started teasing the two. The others got to talking and it wasn't long before something set Fanny off. The next day the teacher from the room next to theirs brought in a bag of ear plugs for the class. By the end of the week the girls had already planned a sleepover.

A Ninja came up to him and said they had landed and were ready to investigate. 'Here goes nothing,' he thought. Then he spoke.

"Alright, troops, we know what their security is, so this should be easy. Stick with the team. No heroes, alright?" Everyone nodded, "Okay, let's go."

"They're here."

"What do we do?"

"We get the target and capture the others."

"Knock 'em out?"

"Of course."

Please Review. Constructive criticism would be nice. Next chapter will be longer, and introduce more of the plot. Here's a sneak peak:

Chad didn't have time to be smug, because when he looked around he saw that his team had been taken down.
