Koreshi Chronicles – Chapter IV : Threads part 4

Christina Kachelli sat on the bench in the atrium. Four of her girls were watching over her from a safe distance. When Gabrielle Summers arrived with her escort of two, there was a brief stand-off. The ladies met eyes and signaled for their security to relax. “This is a bit public for you, isn't it?” Christina asked, genuinely surprised to be meeting a spy in public.

“Park benches are trusted and true, no good spook hasn’t had a meeting or twenty on one. Are your forces ready?” Gabriel asked with her raspy voice. The NGIS section chief was easily 15 cycles younger than the Forzi Dona but they had a number of features in common: dark hair, nice legs, and cool dispositions. Beyond that, Summers was prettier, youth aside, and Kachelli, while cool, was know for outbursts--something the spy could not be accused of.

“They’re ready, as soon as I get the go-ahead on the target. I gotta tell you, I’m not too please with the changes.” Kachelli was looking around a little nervously.

“Then don’t consider it a change, think of it as a refinement. Northco dropped the ball, they wasted their assets, we were always behind the curtain, we have simply pulled it aside to assert direct control. Wouldn't you rather be dealing with me?” Summers asked with a vicious smile that left Kachelli with mixed feelings.

“The Forzi ain’t going to like seeing a bunch of bodies on the ground associated with them, even if they are just mooks. They’ll hold me responsible for the loss of face,” Katchelli said in a hushed but emphatic tone.

“Please don’t waste my time. Your concerns have already been noted, your protection after the operation is guaranteed. Now take this phone--I’ll call you in the next 36 hours with final instructions. By this time after tomorrow, you will be a very different person living a very wealthy life in the Confederacy. Good day, Ms. Katchelli.” With that, Gabriel Summers rose, smoothed out her pencil skirt and strolled away.
