“The new manual is looking good,” John smiles. “How long do you think it will take to finish it?”
“About five more months.” Ned gives his estimate.
“Where would you like to go after that?” John dangles another hook.
“Internet operations?” says Ned.
“Sounds good.” John smiles and nods.

“Okay the final rewrite is complete. It goes into use after the board looks at it.” John smiles at Ned over coffee in the break room. “You have some vacation time. Why don’t you take it? We will find a place in Internet services in the meantime.”
“We don’t have a place for you right now. I’ll extend your vacation for a month. Hold tight.” John puts Ned off. Ned starts to look worried.
“Right.” Ned starts to feel that proverbial knife in the back. “I need to go see my mother Earthside.”
“Charge the ticket to your account here.” John offers, wanting the record of his actions.
“Thanks.” Ned manages a smile and leaves.
John calls security.
“I’m forwarding a file to you. Ned Wons should be booking a flight to earth side soon. I want you to take a team and follow him. Don’t stop him. Just follow and monitor until further notice,” John says.
“Done.” Bully Hayes, chief of security, knows the show.
