He nodded again.

"Good. Men, go join the others in the hall. There are classified matters to discuss. I'll call you when I need you."

The guards obeyed, closing the still-intact outer door.

"How did you find out about Bypass Gemini? Are you the courier?"

"Maybe."

Trent pulled the trigger. With a soft, silenced chirp, a bullet shattered the finger Karter had given him. Half an inch lower and it would have cost him one of the ones his mother had given him instead.

"At what point did I indicate I was willing to play games?"

"Yes, I'm the courier."

"I'd ask you what you know, but from the looks of that pad, the answer is 'everything.' That is unacceptable. Fortunately, I don't have to ask who else knows, because if you came here, you didn't have any proof before, and you certainly didn't get any data out of here."

"How do you know?"

"Because it isn't possible. This is the security wing of the largest company in the galaxy, courier. What did you think you could accomplish? Did you think you could just email classified files?

Mashing the touchpad to end the call, he turned back to the screens. A camera pulled away from the now-black screen and focused instead on a shaken but steadfast woman.

"What you've just seen was a live feed from within the office of VectorCorp Security Chief William Trent. While the details are not yet clear, he appears to have admitted to a plan by this massive firm to knowingly endanger the lives of as many as half a million people. The identity of the other man in the office with him is not yet known, but authorities are at this moment being summoned to end what appears to be a deadly stand-off. One can only hope that this man, whoever he is, remains safe, because if the allegations are true, he may well be responsible for saving literally hundreds of thousands of lives. A true hero, " she said, her voice wavering slightly, the concern showing through her professional persona for just an instant. "For GolanaNet News, I'm Michella Modane.
