“All right lads,” Kite said as he settled back into the room that he was renting with Hummus and Chaos. “The shit, as they say, has hit the fan.”

“You know … that expression has always created such a foul image for me. Why would someone be throwing feces against a moving turbine and then equate that action to getting serious?” Hummus asked honestly.

“Good point,” Kite answered, getting momentarily distracted by Hummus’ curiousity. “So … what do we say then that’s not an over-used cliché that’s also to your liking?” Kite asked sarcastically. 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.

August 2, 2008

A group of twenty of the finest industrialists and businessmen of various ages and sizes sat around a large, wood and steel oblong table that would have appeared large had it not been for the fact that it was placed in the middle of a massive meeting room that overlooked Central Park in New York.

These men – and they were all men – were the leaders of the different business entities of the OMNINet. All were white, all were well-polished, and all were exceptionally prepared for this important meeting that took place every year at the same time in the same location.

This was an office space that would make a Chinese Emperor, French Monarch or even Catholic Pope blush. The walls were not a single material, but a carved array of the world’s most exotic woods and metals. Depictions of Christendom’s greatest events were depicted on these walls, but masked so that lay-people wouldn’t be thrown off by the overtly religious tone. Continue reading

9/11 really fucked things up for Kite. Well, it fucked things up for a lot of people – 400-odd bystanders locked up in Guantanamo, UN Peacekeeping, the several thousand people that went into work thinking everything was OK in their world, anti-war activists, and so on – but for Kite, 9/11 drastically altered the way he had to do business.

Getting into buildings, be they corporate, government or any other structure that housed information that Kite was hired to retrieve, was a cakewalk a few years ago compared to the environment today. Continue reading

Kite relayed the story about Sasha Pigeon to Chaos and Hummus.

“With friends like that …” Chaos started.

“Yeah, I know,” Kite answered. “You need not say more. I tell you, this assignment is getting to be more and more bizarre. I used to do simple lift gigs from corporation to corporation, but this is starting to feel ugly on a lot of levels.”

Kite had reconvened with his partners back at the hotel room after meeting with Pigeon and he was bringing them up to speed on his feedback about Eddie. Continue reading
