Chapter 17




UNIT: Team Reliant

SITUATION: Break-in Noises In The Dark

LOCATION: Team Reliant Offices

TIME: 0400 hours Local Time, Current Date



With all team personnel upstairs and sleep, the office, downstairs, was necessarily dark. The building and its occupants slumbered. The team members were in their assigned rooms, which made it an opportune time for the misery makers who had followed Slover back from one of his private trips to the brothels of Yalu Street.

Someone found the light switch and flipped it up. The light revealed more than just the broken windows. Spence’s office Windows were shattered. Broken glass in large shards and gleaming cracked pieces covered his desk, his chair, and his floor.

The secretarial area revealed not only shards of broken glass, but is also revealed bricks lying on top of broken computer keyboards and broken monitors.

She watched while with furrowed brown, Spence took in the scene and ordered, “All right, people, get some clothes on, grab some brooms, and let’s get this office area cleaned up. Pearly, I want you to check the back shop to see what is damaged there...
