INV ONLY Aim for the Head

Post by Nate6595 on October 20th 2019, 3:41 am

It was not every day that Nine would receive a job that came from a higher up. It was even rarer to get a job from the big boss. It was beyond rare to be personally asked by the boss to meet him and discuss the job itself. Nine would go to his office, fully equipped and on her best behavior. This would only be her third time seeing him in person, the other two times would be when she first past her final test, and the second being when she saved his life from an assassin.

The conversation they had would be short and to the point. There was a rival company, one of large financial standing. It wasn’t an immediate threat, Red Ways and this other company had no dealings, nor were they in the immediate same market, but…the amount of funds their company had amassed was…discouraging. If conflict was to start or, perhaps just on a whim of the rival company, they could easily buy out Red Ways, and while not a major wrench in Isaac’s plans, it was still a wrench. A wrench worth avoiding.

Nine was to infiltrate the main building, find the boss of the company, put him down, and plant evidence which would hurt the company financially. She was also free to take any of the assets herself, if she so desired to, which…she did not. She had more freedom then her counterpart, Seven, but she didn’t have strong values in money. Plus, she didn’t want their to be way to track it back to her and by extension Chimera.

Short and sweet. Nine had her job and she was expected to do it at the utmost delicacy. Delicacy and speed. The fact that her boss, not Sasha, but Isaac, had asked her to do this…she would need a damn good excuse if she failed to complete this job. She doubted that even her death would be an acceptable excuse.

She took her time preparing, checking her rifle, prepping her gear, and reviewing her plan. It would be simple enough. She would go in through the sewers below the office building, enter through a small access point which would lead into the basement. She’d work her way up, stealthed of course, find the main office and put a bullet in the boss’s eyes. She had evidence that would be…incriminating to say the least which would lose the company a great deal of money.

There was…of course, another option. If this job proved to be too difficult, she was given a backup plan. She was to find something that could be used as blackmail. Anything would do. This was less preferable and it would hurt reputation some, but given the wealth of the company and the target…there was some understanding that this might be a tricky task to do.

With everything ready, she would set off. She would find a sewer entrance a few blocks away and…she would start off towards the building, ready for whatever this company had to throw at her.

INV ONLY Re: Aim for the Head

Post by RoyalAurelius on October 23rd 2019, 3:23 pm

The building was like any other, reaching to the sky with it's magnificent construction and perfectly balanced infrastructure. Far below, cars blazed by in beams of light and metal, creating a neon map of the city for the privileged to enjoy. Despite it's average facade, the building was quite heavily guarded with a large, and professional, team of high end security consultants. Every guard was armed with various weaponry, ranging in both calibre and style. The entrance was guarded by 4 different guards, shifts changing regularly to make sure said guards were well rested and diligent. The basement was also watched over with 2 guards, same shift protocol as well. Every lift was attended with an armed escort, as well as all the fire exits, emergency exits, front desk, lobby door, bathroom entrances, employee break area, boiler room, and even the car lot. This of course didn't include the armed escorts in the executive areas, including the top 15 floors, the penthouse, the cafeteria, and the private lift and heliport on top of the building. Apart from the personnel, the building was also under close scrutiny with a highly advanced camera system which was heavily encrypted and led to three different security rooms with their own personal security escorts. Needless to say, the building was being watched, intensely.

Though the building was heavily guarded, it was also filled with plenty of non-personnel foot traffic. Contractors, buyers, other executives and company representatives, important political figures as well as military generals. The company was a jack-of-all-trades type, with it's fingers in every possible financial institute and every political angle it could clutch. Typical business in Corporate America. The C.E.O. of the company was somewhat mysterious, though he was not hiding. General knowledge of him was that he grew up in a rural, even somewhat ancient part of Europe with a dialect all it's own. The closest counterpart anyone ever mentioned about him was Romania, though even then it was still far more ancient then they even knew. There was one thing they could all agree on..... the head of the company had a stare that could rival Medusa's. Perhaps this was why his security was so rigorously extensive.... or it could be that he was worth well over 50 billion dollars alone with his own personal assets, separate from the company's gross income.

Frederick was currently in the middle of a meeting with another company executive, speaking on the grounds of either a merger or full on buyout. The company he was working for was heavy in medical advancement and research, a very profitable and important leg to have for a power such as his. The conversation was tense, to say the least.

"..... I will mention this again Mr. Gretton, the buyout I am offering to you is well over 75% of your company's gross income for the coming 3 years. I believe it is a very generous offer to a man of such wealth as yours. However, the merger clause is quickly closing in on itself, and time is running out for that deal. Both offers include a hefty sum to be deposited to your personal banking account in Switzerland, immediate of course. I hope for an answer by the end of day." Frederick speaks in a familiar, yet altered accent, similar to Romanian but not quite on the dot.

"And I say again, my company is neither for sale, nor are we interested in a merger. The medical research we are conducting is far more important than any amount of money you could ever offer. I respect your position Mr. Balthazar, but I must decline your offer. I fear that a merger could disrupt, or even stagnate our research process and create a shortage of medicine that could cost us more than the company, or your offer, is worth." He spoke with a firm Boston accent, showing his origin as well as his humanity, something that was rare in a high up company executive.

The handsome, albeit somewhat terrifying Mr. Balthazar lightly rapped on his desk with his fingers, giving his next offer/negotiation some preemptive thought. This man was stubborn, and being from Boston, possessed a much more iron clad will than most of his other clients. Everyone had a price, however it was the idealists that were the most cumbersome when it came to negotiations. [color=crimson]"I completely understand your concern Mr. Gretton, however I have explained, in great detail, that if the merger were to happen, I would in no way impede your progress or disrupt your research. I am just as concerned about these medical breakthroughs as you are. You are passionate, concerned for the whole of mankind, and you have an iron will like nobody else I have ever seen. The only thing you lack, is funding. Tell me Mr. Gretton..... would we have that miracle cure in a pill, if you had just a little bit more money?" The sharp eyes of this insatiable C.E.O. were fixed on his counterpart, studying his reaction to his last statement. He did not need to mention the name of this miracle cure to make it clear what he was talking about. Perhaps there was hope yet, to come to an agreement.

There was much to be considered. Nine knew this all too well. As she trudged through the sewer, doing her best to stay out of the foul scented liquid, she thought over her plan. With her cloaking, she could try and make her way past all the guards and to the top of the building. Though, she doubted it would be easy to do so. You don't make as billions of dollars and not have some high-end security. Either she would alert the guards or the climb up would take hours, maybe even a day. There was no promise in that time she'd lose her target.

Alternatively, she could try and lure the guards out, maybe even the big man himself. She couldn't just start shooting up the place, wasn't her style and the big man would be...cautious. There would be more guards than normal. There would have to be another course of action. She needed some sort of distraction, one that wouldn't directly alert the tower that there was some kind of external danger, an accident of sorts.

The question was...how? Or rather, what?

She let out a sigh, she couldn't think as she walked through this sludge. She would come up with a plan when she was actually at the tower.

Speaking of the matter, she was there. Well, not inside, but the grate she could use to access the tower was right here. She had traveled further than expected. Getting lost in thought could do that, she supposed. Part of her wished she had a bit more time to think it over, but wishing could only get you so far. There was a job to do.

The grate was easy enough to get through, at least via her skills. It was a short crawl through a narrow chamber into the basement and she was careful not to make a sound, knowing that the basement, despite the few access points, would be guarded like the rest of the building. This basement, it looked like...a boiler room?

She tucked herself in a tight area between two large cylindrical and peeked out into the main room. There looked to be at least...four? Five guards? It was hard to tell from her spot and the room was poorly lighted. Thankfully, at least that meant more cover for her. Plus, the machines in the room would do well in masking the sound she might make.

The entire room was covered in pipes and nozzles and small consoles. There were also several large boilers, though it did offer a good place to hide, the heat which radiated off of it would threaten to burn her. She thought that if she was wedged between them that she might boil and sizzle to the point of setting off the fire alarms.

The fire alarms.

She thought about that for a moment. A mishap in the boiler room, causes smoke to rise and a good portion of guards would have to come check it out. The building itself might be evacuated as well.  But, that also might call for the boss to leave the building. That could change the game too much, though would he still have the same amount of security? Probably not, a fire would not warrant all the extra protection. Probably...she would go up as he went down, maybe meet at the halfway point? Or...perhaps, instead it would give her a chance to get into the penthouse or one of the high-end meeting halls. She would either bump into him there or maybe she could find out some useful information.

A fire would be it. But the question was, how? She didn't know enough about machines to set it off, plus if she spent too much time figuring it out then she'd probably be caught. However, if a boiler was to...explode due to an unforeseen circumstance then maybe, just maybe, that would do what she needed it to.  Plus, a boiler exploding sounds a lot like a grenade exploding, it would at least mask it. This...this might just work.

This was the plan. She would position herself on the far end of the room, opposite of the boilers. She would reach into her side pocket and pull out a fragmentation grenade. She took a deep breath, looked over to the guard to make sure that they were at least looking in another direction.

And then she pulled the pin. She threw it. It landed right between two of the larger boilers. She grabbed cover, and...boom.

The grenade itself was loud, but if she was lucky, the boiler would be louder and...hopefully, the guards would now be distracted. Even if the boiler didn't explode, hopefully, the fire alarm would go off and the building would be evacuated. Hopefully.

At least her cover had offered protection, there wasn't a scratch on her. That was one thing that went right at least.

Post by RoyalAurelius on November 7th 2019, 1:30 am

"..... I respect your position, as I have said before Mr. Gretton, however if you refuse altogether, I may need to resort to more aggressive means of expansion. You do not own the right to operate exclusively with medicine and said research to go with the field. I am trying to come to a rational business arrangement that will satisfy both our needs and put to rest any doubt you have. Have you ever heard that old saying, if you love something, it's best to let it go? I can tell you're a passionate man, and I enjoy a challenge on that front, but what I see from you is not a man who is being stingy with their company, but a man who is being stingy with their toys. If you would consider...."

The C.E.O. was interrupted during his final statement, a rather loud and invasive explosion. The floor was high up enough that the tremor did not reach, however Frederick had the superior hearing that no other human in the building possessed, which explains the confused look on Mr. Gretton's face when he stopped mid sentence. "Who the hell do you think you are...... were you about to threaten me Mr. Balthazar!?" The man stood up, now enraged more than before as he leaned on the desk and scowled to the foreign man. "I'll see you destroyed.... your company is nothing to me."

Frederick's eyes shut right before he rolled them in both disgust and disappointment, finding his patience wearing thin with this paunchy, self-righteous, humanitarian. Diverting his concern from the explosion he heard, he refocused on Mr. Gretton, but only with his eyes as he pressed the intercom button, not breaking the stare he had now fixed on his big-wig guest. His eyes were like blades that sliced through every layer of armour the paunchy man had put up to protect himself. Mr. Gretton felt his stomach turn from just the gaze, trying to avoid the eye contact, but finding it chillingly difficult.

"Ms. Anglethorpe, would you please send word to the lower floor security. I would just like a check in is all, and get back to me as soon as you can... thank you."

"Of course, Mr. Balthazar." The intercom goes silent for a moment, only to buzz once more with an almost immediate response. "Sir, security team 3 is reporting a large explosion in the boiler room.... apparently one of the tanks just burst open, causing damage to the room and injuring a few guards. They already have a second team going in to check on the damage and the wounded, and the proper authorities have already been alerted. We're on hold for ambulance and fire rescue.

"Thank you Ms. Anglethorpe, it sounds like we may have some structural issues in the near future. Please call for a building wide evac, that includes all the staff members and security detail. I shall be down with Mr. Gretton shortly." He releases the button and goes back to his guest. "You're either incredibly resourceful, or incredibly lucky Mr. Gretton.... looks like your table has opened up, at least until we can get this situation sorted. I'll send some of my people to discuss the contracts and what not, I have an incredibly talented lawyer. She will be more than convincing of this generous deal. Now if you'll follow me."

Frederick proceeds to lead Mr. Gretton out of his penthouse office to the private express elevator. They both enter the lift as it starts to descend, only to be stopped about halfway down. The auxilery power must have forced a shut down after the explosion... it clearly caused more damage than originally thought. This forced both C.E.O.'s to exit the lift and proceed on foot. 46th floor, the wall reads as they begin to make their way down the only accessible flight of stairs that hugged the right side of the building. Mr. Gretton, being as out of shape as he was, began to pant and sweat as they rushed downstairs..... Frederick seemed perfectly fine and virile though, as a young pup in his prime.

Downstairs in the boiler room was panic, no fire left after having been doused by the second security team upon entering. When the second team came into the room not long ago, all they found was a burst tank, two injured guards needing immediate medical, and a face full of steam. One guard managed to override the steam valve, stopping the steam from further clouding the room, while the other two guards aided in removing the injured personnel from the now hazardous room. Every guard, despite being so many there, was completely focused on the incident and evac, not even checking to see why the tank had burst. Their priority was not to find the culprit, but to get everyone to safety and abandon the room.
