Episode 11

The round little drone levitates above me. “Please prepare for a complete scan. Do not worry Ms. Sexy as it shall be painless. I know how you don’t like pain….”

Just at that moment Shannon Cannon arrives through the transport tube. “Why are you scanning Sexy!” she demands.

The drone adjusts itself. “Standard, random scan. I assure you both it is painless.”

HARV, you can beat this scan…Right?”

I believe so, Zach. I will do my best, of course.”


This is going to be tricky, I will have to wait until it sends a scanning beam at you then I will hijack it’s beam and tweak its information,” HARV informs me. “Pretty sure I can make this work…” A pause. “But I am getting ready to charge your body under armor just in case…”

“Scanning now!” the drone announces.

The drone bathes me in a beam of red light. I smile and wave cause I figure that’s something Sexy would do. I also hold my breath that this will work. I do take some solace in that the guards in the room don’t seem very concerned.

I’m in!” HARV tells me. “My my, you would think the government would have better shielding and firewalls on their drones!”

Well?” I ask still trying to remain calm on the outside.

The red light turns off. The beam disappears.

“Scan complete!” the drone announces with a little musical scale to reinforce the announcement. “This is Sexy Sprockets!”

I nod and smile.

Shannon catches up with me and takes me by the arm. “Come on Sexy, I will help you to your office. You must be exhausted after that scan.”

I nod.

Shannon leads me out of the secure entry area to an elevator. “Do you want me to accompany you to see Helena Gevada?” she asks. Vote below on what will happen next or if reading in email click Take our Poll.
