A fist slammed on a desktop so hard a computer monitor jumped, and a coffee cup bounced perilously close to the edge as it spilled some of its hot contents on the desk.  Rage contorted the man’s reddening face.

“He saw that?” shouted the angry voice.  A wavering finger pointed to a screen hanging on the wall, displaying building blueprints.

“I…I…don’t know,” came a scared whimper from a male servant.  “He was only in here a few seconds.  I just went out to get a fresh coffee for your return.  He was by your desk when I came back.  I escorted him out immediately.”

The man leaned back in his chair, taking deep breaths.  His eyes continued to stare at the blueprint on the wall screen.  Slowly his face began to return to its normal colour.

“He saw it,” he said, blowing out a deep breath.  “He had to.”

“But he doesn’t know what it means.”

“Not now.  But he’s a smart boy.  He could put it together when things start to happen.”

“Very unlikely, sir,” came a soothing tone.  “You are above reproach.”

“We can’t take that chance.  Any slip over the next few years and everything will be ruined.”  He shook his head, “No, he must die.”


The expression on the man’s face went stone hard.  His voice was cruel and determined, “Find a hitman, and make it happen.”
