Chapter 24

The scent of coffee woke him the next morning and he looked over to see Bryan and Janine both still asleep on the couch. He stood, stretched and followed the scent of the coffee. It led him to a small kitchen area where Jessie was pouring a cup.

"Morning, " he said. She looked over at him and shook her head at him.

"Were you all here all night?" she asked holding out the mug to him.

"I'll fix my own, " he told her. She shrugged and stepped aside. She took a sip as he poured his own cup.

"I suppose we did pull a bit of an all-nighter." He admitted.

"He is still asleep on that couch of his isn't he?" Steve smiled and nodded. He sipped his coffee.

"Yeah he was pretty worn out."

Shortly after the bluff, a corporate lawyer type arrived and the phrase 'No Comment' flew through the air. Apparently Mr. Suit had thought he could bluff his way through the incident.

"Score one for the good guys, " Bryan said. Idly Steve wondered if he still counted as one of the good guys.

"I also sent a copy of the report to my editor who of course sent it on to the proper authorities." Janine told them. "Hopefully this should take care of things."

"Hopefully, " Steve said. "Hopefully."
