IN BLOG WE TRUST - Part 7
Gordon came to a short time later and Jackie gave him some water. Eventually, he sat up, feeling weak, but better.
Gordon and Winchell traded stories of current events, cautiously at first, feeling each other out. Although they didn’t trust each other 100% when it came to The Company, they both weren’t stupid. With what they had recently been through, they knew the best chance of survival, for both of them, was to take the plunge and give full disclosure to each other. Jackies’s involvement in Winchell’s tale and his vouching for her, was good enough for Gordon. . . .for now.
“The Company has lost it. They are just grabbing people left and right.” Said Gordon. “Do they really think that grabbing a Detective is going to go unanswered?”
WInchell smirked, “Do you think they would have grabbed a Detective if they didn’t have someone on the inside. . . . .high up on the inside. . . .the would cover it up. And by cover it up, I mean cover YOU up.”
“They just about succeeded tonight.” Added Jackie. “I’ve been thinking. . . .”
“That’s always good . . . .blurted Winchell without thinking.
“Shut up! I’ve been thinking . . . if they took Gordon into their “hospital” or lab or whatever. . .instead of just killing him and disposing of his body. . . .”
“Hey, I’m right here!!” chimed Gordon.
“. . . .what are chances that they did the same with Mikal. Maybe he is inside the Company right now.”
Winchell lowered his head. “It’s seems unlikely. . .Gordon, did you see anyone else in there?”
“No, although I was pretty drugged up. No, there wasn’t anyone else around me. It’s a good theory but doubtful. I’m sorry!”
“We have to get in there and look around. We’re really no safer here than we are if we tried to get back in.” The look of a resigned woman showed on Jackie’s face.
“Alright, we’ll try it.” Winchell just wanted this done.
“Let me rest up and I’ll go with you guys” Gordon didn’t want anyone taking down these guys but him. Not after what they did to him.
Winchell wasn’t buying that at all. ‘Not in the shape I was way back Gordon. I don’t think that I could carry you, the next time you drop.”
“You were never in good shape.”
“It’s almost morning”, Winchell took a deep breath. “You get some rest. Jackie and I will try to come up with a plan. Maybe your years in Undercover can be of some use. But, get some rest and we’ll talk later. Actually, we should all get some sleep.”
Gordon laid down and was out in seconds.
“Jackie, you know the place is impossible to sneak into, right?”
“Yeah, but they don’t know we are with Gordon. They think that we are on vacation. Even if they do see us . . . so what! We aren’t on vacation . . .So! We do still work there. Right now, the only three people we can trust are us.”
Supervisor X sat in his office. “Are they coming here as requested? The woman and those two psychopaths?”
“Yes Sir! Amalee and the other two will all be here shortly. Should I bring them up here when they arrive?”
“To my office? Good God, man no!” You’re lucky that I don’t kill you for knowing where my office is. Have them wait in the third floor meeting room. Notify me when they are all here.”
“And. . . .
“Don’t forget to have All of there weapons removed this time.”
“Yes, Sir! Sorry , Sir!”
“Oh, and one more thing. . . .” Supervisor X let the thought trail away. “Once they are out with their assignments, give them 12 hours. If they have not completed their tasks and reported back in. . . . . . .activate prototype WRKRB-E10. Let’s put an end to this, shall we?”
