Tip stood at the edge of the couch looking down at me. Sandy’s bare legs as the backdrop, “Jack, Winston is in the outer office. He told me he’s been waiting for more than a half-hour.”
“Does he look pissed?”
“Very. But then again when does
n’t he? I’ve never seen him smile. Have you?”
“Tell Daphne we’ll be just a few more minutes.”
“There’s one other thing before we get to him.”
Tip looked concerned for the third time today.
“What is it?”
“First let me preface, it’s not as bad as it sounds, but it’s the second time it’s happened – so I thought you should know.”
“Tip, the suspense, just tell us.”
“It’s Martha, Jack…” My heart sank, “She snuck into the lobby and pretended to be on tour with the folks. I let it go the first time – figured it was a harmless prank – kid’s stuff, but…”
I cut him off, “How did she get past your guys?”
“Disguised in an oversized t-shirt, hair up in one of your baseball caps, wearing dark lensed sunglasses. I think they’re Kathy’s.”
I sat straight up, brushed my pants to straighten them, and tucked in my shirt. He didn’t notice – his eyes planted on the most pleasant sight in the room and stayed there. Sandy was the object of his desire – she was in rare form, and of all days, on this one—she may have peaked. Tip could keep at least half his brain tuned in to a conversation while the other indulged in his infatuation. ‘Dual Core, he always joked about his talent…’
“Do you think she was trying to sneak out?”
“I don’t know, maybe seeing how far she could get. Anyway, one of her agents intercepted her. I guess Martha doesn’t realize we have her on continuous watch. And, after the first time we added one of our people to the tour.”
“I’ll bet she was startled getting caught?”
“Not really. She was indignant – threw off the baseball cap and glasses and ran upstairs. The agent just followed her per protocol.”
Sandy interjected, “She’s a teenager, probably wants to see if she could get out sometime to be with her friends.”
“Well there’s no need for you to worry, Jack, we’ve had her double teamed since day one, – she’d have to evade ten of our best to get to the street.”
“Even so, Tip, she shouldn’t be making your life difficult. Bring me some of the letters.”
“Are you sure, Jack?”
“Martha may as well know right now what we’re up against.”
“I have them on my tablet.” Tip tapped the face of the screen a few times then passed it to me.
“May I read it?” Sandy asked, intercepting the device.
After reading only a few sentences, she dropped the screen into her lap. “Oh my God,” She shuttered shaking her head, raising her shoulders, “Whoever wrote this isn’t human. You can’t show her, she’ll have nightmares for the rest of her life.”
Tip filled in the blanks, “It’s been traced to a White Supremacist group in Northern Montana. They hate Jack for his stand on equality for women and minorities.”
Sandy’s eyes got teary, “Are you going after these men?” She pressed at the screen to get rid of the horror but couldn’t make the thing to turn off. The words just stayed put—handing it back to Tip like it was a hot potato, “Take this awful thing.” Sandy started crying, “The world has some evil people…”
I pulled her close to me, hugging snug to comfort her, “Don’t worry, Tip has a man on the inside, – he’s infiltrated the group. We’re working on it.”
Tip attempted a rare moment of tenderness, bending down looking directly into Sandy’s eyes, “These guys are already dead, – they, just don’t know it yet.”
“Do you need a tissue?” I asked, “To wipe your eyes?”
“No—I’ll be okay. It just makes me scared reading things like this.” I spoke softly into her hair, “No ones ever going to bother you, we have teams protecting you.”
We heard a knock on the door. Daphne stepped into the office. I caught a glimpse of her raised eyebrows – she was rolling her eyes into the back of her head. In her way, expressing displeasure…
