“We have to talk,” was all Kite could bring himself to say on the phone. He was still feeling ill from the news about Pigeon. It seemed odd to him that Diana had so much information about what should have been a clandestine OMNINet operation, if they were involved, but he didn’t dwell on those options for long. He convinced himself that someone like her would hire several people to get pieces of information, leaving her to put them together. It actually protected people like Kite because he would never have to do too much or put himself in too much of a position of risk.

“Carl? What’s up buddy?” Eddie asked. Continue reading

“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

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

With the OMNINet meeting on Saturday – just two days from now – Kite knew he’d have to act fast. With the help of Hummus and Chaos, he collected everything he could on Sasha Pigeon and arranged a meeting.

When they spoke, Pigeon seemed distant and cold as Kite explained why he wanted to meet him. He gave some very peripheral comments about wanting to catch up with Eddie, but also referred to the idea that he was writing a piece on Eddie for a magazine article.

It only took Kite a few minutes to get from their hotel to where Pigeon was staying. His apartment was located in an old loft on the periphery of the Chelsea district, about eight blocks from his own beaten up hotel space. Continue reading
