“Plans have changed. You’ve seen what we wanted you to see. Remember this, " he said pointing to the Polkovnik, “the next time you decide to let your emotions get the better of you. Now it’s time to go. We’ve hid our involvement as much as we could. Apparently it wasn’t enough.”

“No matter. They won’t have anyone there who has the authority or ability to deal with us.”

“On the contrary Martin, this changes everything.” She paused. “How did she do?”

“Black Ops training. You know how tricky the four-forty-eight is? She knew where the safety was and checked to see if it was loaded.”

“That wasn’t what I meant.”
