Chapter Eight

Arriving at Center, Nikita was escorted into the small, but well-appointed conference room that always housed her meetings with the triumvirate.

As always, after a weapons and electronics bugs check she was escorted into the room first. Certain that there was hidden surveillance, Nikita made sure not to betray her nervousness and walked confidently to her chair. Her seat was behind a small square table which was just large enough to hold the PDA or portfolio she sometimes brought with her as well as a pitcher of ice-cold water and an empty glass, in case meetings ran long.

Several feet in front of Nikita stood a larger, rectangular shaped conference table where the triumvirate would sit. On that table were three pitchers of water and three empty glasses. They never brought any paper or electronics with them, reinforcing Nikita’s certainty of surveillance.

Nikita sat down, pretending to look at the PDA she’d brought with her while she took a minute to compose herself and prepare for what she was sure would be a fierce battle ahead. A few minutes later the three Center leaders walked in and took their customary seats, Mr. O’Neill in the middle, Mr. Lacroix to his left and Ms. Giles to his right.

Purposely she was sure, the seating arrangement had always given Nikita the impression that she was there to present her case while the three sat in judgment.

To her awful surprise, Mr. O’Neill thwarted her strategy by attacking first and unerringly.

“Why is your boyfriend back in Section One?”


As soon as Nikita had left for Center, Michael had gone to work. While he may have been confined to his quarters, he did have access to Section’s mainframe through the laptop in the sitting area of his bedroom.

Although he’d ben a field operative, Michael had mastered various other skills as well, including hacking. While he may not have achieved Seymour Birkoff’s level of proficiency, neither had the computer genius’s successors Quinn and Jason.

Michael’s natural and honed hacking skills combined with remembered lessons of Birkoff’s served him well again. With less effort than he thought he’d need, Michael quickly began perusing the necessary files required to bring him up to date on Section’s activities.

By the time triumvirate had begun their interrogation of Nikita, Michael was well on his way to acquainting himself with the current Section administration.
