The Board Room is nearly empty, save for three figures sitting at the long, center table. One sits at the head of the table—the Chairman, his face shrouded in shadow, as always—while the other two sit at the far end, watching him intently.
The space between them is deliberate, and both sides are keenly aware of it.
Have I talked about this? I know I've tweeted about it, but I'm not sure I've ever talked about it here. Let me rectify that situation...
Shortly after I joined The Pen and Cape Society, four of us started a podcast. It's called Throwing the Gun (named after the trope where villains keep throwing their guns at superheroes) and it comes out... uh... every other month or so (I edit the podcast, and the editing process is usually the long pole in the tent). If you like podcasts and want to give another a try, we just released Episode 11. You can find the entire run in the links below.
The Division M conference room is a large, well-equipped meeting room with a long table and comfortable chairs. Special Agent Phillip Henry sits at the middle position on the right side of the table, staring across at the two men on the left side. The two men—one a heavyset, sweating Federal Agent, the other a hardened, weather-beaten NYPD Cop—stare back grimly.
Artemis LaFleur and Robert Thorpe sit alone in Robert’s office, drinking coffee.
They haven’t spoken of anything important—other than how each prefers their coffee prepared—since CB and Agent Grant left. Artemis drinks his coffee slowly, savoring the bitterness and the heat, and waits.
