A tall, lanky woman in her early thirties, Debra Carter carried herself with a quiet confidence that Margaret instantly admired and hated. Alarms went off in her head. This woman was a threat to her, or at least her plans, but for the moment Margaret needed her, so she pushed down the warning and smiled.
“Welcome, Debra,” Margaret said as she stood up. “It is a pleasure to finally meet you.”
“Thank you, Doctor Vo, but I’m not entirely sure why I am here,” Debra said. She kept her hands at her side, not close enough to the firearm holstered on her hip to be threatening, but close enough that should the need arise, she would have it in an instant.
“Well, as you may know, I recently took control of Lunar Paveways and I am combining it along with the other firms I’ve recently acquired,” Margaret paused to make sure the security guard was keeping up. “As part of that, I am testing various departments and department heads to see how they perform under various circumstances.” Debra nodded, so Margaret continued. “A hidden warehouse well away from your facility just suffered a break in. I want to know what happened, who was involved, and what was taken.” She looked Debra in the eyes and said. “I don’t care how you do it, but don’t get caught and do it quick.”
