Eddie Manchester wasn’t a resourceful person, but he was a senior-level employee with one of the world’s largest corporations, so he could at least use his position to dig a little deeper.

Being more emotional than thoughtful, he left Kite sitting in the coffee shop, and returned to his office, his mind trying to process what he had been told. Murder? The OMNINet? It was run by people who claimed that they were ‘good Christians’. They wouldn’t harm anyone, would they?

As soon as he got back to work, he checked his calendar and cancelled any meetings he had. Given his level at the company, his main excuse was that he was double-booked and he blamed his executive assistant with every apologetic call. The occasional derogatory comment came up and for a brief moment, he enjoyed poking fun at a girl that actually worked very hard for him. Continue reading

Kite had always imagined that the voice of the end of the world would be the rough and torn sound of Shane McGowan of the Pogues, singing about recklessness and distracting us from the true perils that surrounded us.

Instead, it was Griffith Garamond. His voice was smooth. Calm. Harmonious and void of tension. When he spoke, he made people around him feel like they were small and needy. When he paused, people waited for more, wanting more from this great figure. Continue reading

“What you are looking at, gentlemen,” Garamond stated, “is information on a particular form of technology that Nikola Tesla developed shortly before he died in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in 1943, just down the block from where we are now.”

“One of the last major projects that he was working on involved a theoretical technology known as ‘Scalar Movements’. The public has never seen these documents or what we’ve done with them because they were all confiscated by the FBI shortly after he died. They used ‘national security’ as an excuse and for once, they were right. If this technology fell into the wrong hands, it would have been disastrous for this great country of ours.” Continue reading

When you enter an office building on a Saturday afternoon, the first thing you think is that you must have missed the alarm bell. Acres of cubicles are deserted, stripped of their organic inhabitants, now a quiet and still refuge for sleeping computers (few of which are turned off on Friday afternoon), pictures of families and friend and smelly work shoes, tucked under the retractable keyboard.

It was the pictures that always struck Kite. These were icons of hope, images of desire and sometimes visual tombstones and reminders for all office employees that for a few brief moments each week, these people weren’t stuck in a cubicle breathing in the dust of hundreds of other clock-punchers and drones. Or that they weren’t breathing in the chemically unstable and highly toxic fumes of the poorly made chairs, desks and rugs, all mass produced with cost-efficiencies in mind, and not the health of the end users.
