Chapter 4: All expenses paid
Harris: "I need a team of 12, of my choice, radios, some technical equipment, an FBI or CIA safe house, which I know there's one, and the devices needed for contamination. Most of those are easy, only hard one would be the devices and possibly the safe house."
Connor: "The safe house won't be a problem. The other departments don't like us, but they have no say in the matter. But with the hand dryer, why would you choose such a device for contamination? I mean there's a few dozen bathrooms, and multiple hand driers in each. The percentage of people who will actually come in contact with one is relativity low."
Harris: "You only need a few hand driers for it to work. But to make sure, we're replacing every single hand dryer with one of ours. The reason it's so effective is that your hands touch everything. Think about it: food, clothing, gear, other people, and especially your face."
Connor: "Still, why this method over others, say like through spraying the stadium?"
Harris: "You can't hold the virus in a liquid form to spray. Plus we're at the mercy of the wind that way, and I plan to have the worst possible situation happen. Yet the final reason is we can get the jobs easy enough to install the dryers."
Connor: "You seem confident in your ideas, so I'll send the blueprints off to engineering and get the dryers made. Onto the next matter, your crew will need to be cleared by us. Make your choices, but we get the final say."
Harris: "Would you just let me run my op? I'm not choosing anyone who I'm not confident in, because if something goes down, its my ass as much as yours that's going to be in a -blam!- storm. I have all my choices in mind, but if you want my help, I suggest not messing with them."
Connor: "I assume you still brought a list of your candidates, because you don't seem to be the dumb type that would just think he would get his choice without review."
Connor: "I don't think we'll be having a problem with your crew. Only name I don't like is Jeremy Tolsor."
Harrison: "Don't blame you for not liking him. He's greedy, and that makes him dumb. However, he knows his technical stuff, and is the only possible candidate for the job. Other guy, Rick, got killed on a job over in Sweden. But with Jeremy, his "incident" does make him risky, but don't think I made plans for once the job is done."
Connor: "You're right about the Moscow incident. He betrayed his former boss for us, but he could go back just as easily and that won't look good. Keep what he knows to a minimal, keep him watched, and then eliminate him post job, and you can have him."
Harrison: "You think I inform my people of the client? I rarely tell everyone the whole mission. You see, I haven't lasted this long in my business by not thinking things through. I'm insulted that you would consider the fact I may tell him what the job is for."
Connor: "Just doing what I'm paid to do. I work with idiots, I'm accustomed to dealing with idiots, so I treat everyone like an idiot. Fair enough?"
Harrison: "What will be fair is you paying me in advance. Although I know you're "doing what your paid to do" so I'll say the usual payment: half up front, half once the job is completed. How much was it again? 2 million total, not including expenses?"
Connor: "A lot more than what we should be paying you. You're just lucky we can't go to anyone else. Enough of that matter, though. I have blueprints and a safe house to arrange, while you have your own job and planning to get to, and after that an all expense paid trip to St. Petersburg."[◄] [Directory] [►]
