That’s true. Hmph… (She looks over to where Augustine and John are standing and carefully adjusts her earpiece.) You mentioned you can turn off the security cameras? Can you also see if the floor is secure?
[he nods although she can’t see it, and rolls over to a computer set up beside him where he hacks into the surveillance cameras again and streams their feeds onto this computer’s two monitors. after switching between different views, he confirms] Your floor and the floor below is clear. There are two people on the floor above you, but I’ll watch them. [he rolls back to the first computer to watch her gps location as well as keep an eye on the other monitors]
That quick? Nice one, Scott. I owe ya one. Okay, floor below. Go left. Down the stairs. Third door on the right. (She nods to herself) You think Augustine and John would mind if I went out to go down there?
I don’t know. But if you’re just sitting around, then I don’t see why there would be a problem?
No, no. Everything for this weekend was arranged privately.
Ah. Well, don’t worry. We’ll get in contact with him back at base.
Good idea. Best to satisfy an empty stomach. I know I’d be distracted if I didn’t have anything to eat. (She pulls out her knife and starts fiddling with it.) Can you actually? It’d be great. I’m not too sure about Augustine being okay with it. I guess it’s your call as long as it won’t interfere with your work, right?
It won’t; I already found the floorplan. Okay, the kitchen is on the floor below you. When you leave this room, go left and continue to the stairs. Then after you go down, it’s the third door on the right. I’ll shut off the security cameras as you go.
(She chuckles softly) Seriously? Why not get someone to get something for you? And, unfortunately no. Got no snacks here. Though, I was hoping we might run into a kitchen or something. Maybe a pantry filled with food. I skipped a meal today which is probably the worst decision I’ve ever made…
Hm, I should probably take a break anyway. Making a mistake because I’m distracted would be worse than not getting my work done as fast as I can. [the sound of his typing slows and then starts back up again fast as he begins speaking again] In the meantime, can look to see if I can find the floorplan of the building you’re in and look for a kitchen. Do you think Augustine would be okay with that?
I-It’s Beckham here… and I just… I hope you guys are doing okay. (Kate mumbles to herself) This is hell… We’re all in hell.
[he takes a brief pause to touch his headset as he’s typing away at a computer and then he talks into the headset] Hey. [is all he says, hoping she’d recognize his voice. he minimizes the program he’s been typing into and opens up a new window to track kate’s location via gps to make sure she’s okay]. I’m fine. How are you?
(She closes her eyes, about to give up on trying to talk some more when she hears another voice on the other end.) S-Scott? (Her eyes widened and she smiles to herself, grateful that he replied.) H-Hey. I-I’m okay. John and I just f-found a room. It’s filled with files. Augustine is in here too. They’re just chatting away for now.
I… H-How are you holding u-up?
Well enough. I can’t remember the last time I’ve eaten, though. [he says with a smile in his voice] I hope you guys brought snacks with you.
No, I don’t know. I—I didn’t ask.
Does he have a schedule up anywhere?
[starts to pace after standing.] That’s good…
[he waits quietly and when the car arrives, he lets anya get in first before sliding in after her] Do you know what sort of work Gavin had today?
Okay, yes. That would be nice.
[calls up a driver and tells them their location before hanging up] They said it would be fifteen minutes.
