I set up my computer and as I was getting ready to pull up the numbers to explore I had a message waiting from Sage. tWT: Open the tracking program. You should go here next. I typed a response quickly. N: Thanks. Why? I opened up the program and found the little blip on the screen. The location wasn’t far from Sage actually. Sage replied … Continue reading Hacker v Hacker
I was early. I worked on the things Dae’lin had on my desk the bits and pieces of reports she wanted information on. Boring but mostly just notes on things I’d found out. And I hadn’t found much out working on this case so it was pretty quick work. I noticed Dad and Bernstein were doing a lot of meetings here recently and I figured … Continue reading Head Honcho Sucks
My dreams were epic until they weren’t. I remembered more of the things I’d forgotten with Alex. I remembered the first time we met and how much I needed a friend after Mushu died.

He was ignoring me, we had a fight two days ago, and he didn’t want to talk. I got that. I’d left the conversation. I was angry, … Continue reading Where Are You?
It wasn’t long before I was running up the stairs of the Apex Unlimited building to the Infirmary. I’d forgotten all about my appointment with Margo today. I was pushing being late on top of my anxiety for all the shit I was doing and not doing and the fucking change. Margo had rescheduled me. I think that was part of the problem. She’d said … Continue reading Many Firsts
