Chapter 1: Receiving an Assignment
The sky was a clear blue, just as usual. The mist of the ocean lightly drifted into the bar that I was currently sitting at. I sat on an old stool at an old wooden bar where I sipped at a cold bottle of beer. The place was peaceful in some ways. Nobody chasing me with loaded guns. It was a change for once.
I gazed at the ocean some more, fascinated by the fact that I was sitting at some bar in Tahiti just looking out at the ocean. The feeling overwhelmed me so with buzzes of happiness that shot through me. A small smile formed on my lips as I thought about it.
A pair of attractive women passed me, I gave them a few glances but they passed by me not even sparing a glance. I took a long swig out of the almost empty bottle of beer from the sudden depression that overflowed me.
Then somebody gently tapped my shoulder, I reluctantly turned around to see my old pal, William Burin.
"Hey, will!" I greeted him with a friendly smile and a kind handshake.
"Hey, Nate!" he responded with the same enthusiasm and shook my hand.
"It's been a while." I stated while ordering another cold bottle of beer.
"Yeah…how about we go sit somewhere else?" Will suggested as he sat a more secluded table. I quickly grabbed my beer and made my way over to the table.
"To what do I owe the pleasure of your rare visit?"I asked with my question dripping with sarcasm as I popped the lid off of the new bottle and took a sip of the cool beverage.
"I have an assignment for you." Will imposed.
"What kind of assignment?" I questioned with hidden curiosity.
"A very important document located at a very international business headquarters." Will beamed.
"Is it heavily guarded?" I took a sip of the beer.
"But of course."
"Who is the client?"
"Some multimillionaire business man who by the way is willing to pay a big sum of cash for this assignment. So are you in?" Will asked excitement.
"No, I don't like this." I said as I took a long comforting swig of the beer.
"Nate! This guy is looking for a professional and you're the best guy I know. If I go and tell him that you don't like the idea then I lose my job." Will panicked, not taking too kindly to my refusal to his offer.
"I don't know."
"Come on, man." Will was practically begging me now. I sympathized with him because his position required him to be successful most of the time with satisfying clients' needs for an assignment. But I didn't feel good about the situation.
"How much is he willing to pay?" I asked, scoping for more information.
"One million biggies." Will said with a slight smile.
"Fine, I'll do it." I agreed.
"Oh! Thanks, Nate!" he beamed as he wiped his forehead with his callused hand, "here, you'll need this." He handed me a closed folder.
"What is it?" I asked as I opened the folder, skimming over the few pieces of paper that were in it.
"They tell you what you are going to need to do in order to get the document the client wants." Will responded as he stretched his arms over his head, "so, enough with business. How have you been?"
"I've been ok." I replied as I closed the folder and continued on drinking my beer.
"That narrows it down a bit." Will commented with a hint of annoyance.
"Well, how have you been?" I asked, turning the tables on him. He hated being a subject of conversation.
"Fine, I'm dating this woman who is just incredible. She is beautiful, intelligent and much more." Will was close to drooling over his new found companion.
"That's nice. I'm happy for you." I responded politely, trying to hide my envy.
"How about you? You seeing anybody worth while?" he asked.
"No…" I answered shortly.
"Why not? I thought you were seeing that one gal…what's her name…she had black hair…and name started with a c…" Will pondered.
"Cloe." I finally answered, putting the guy out of his misery with trying to figure out her name.
"Yeah! I thought you were seeing her." He stated.
"Well, you thought wrong. She high tailed out of here while I was on my last assignment." I answered bitterly as I chugged down the rest of the beer.
"You still upset about it?" He questioned as he placed his arms on the old wooden table that we sat at momentarily.
"No, I say good riddance to the bitch. She didn't add anything to my life in any way." I said as I yawned.
"That's a good way to look at it." Will grinned.
"So when do I start the assignment?" I inquired as I stretched my arms.
"In a few days…like I said before, everything that you need to know about the assignment is in the folder."Will sassed as he got up and I did the same thing.
"I'll talk to you later." I told Will as I patted his back and walked towards the bar.
"Ok, good luck." Will spoke his last words as he started on his own path towards the sunlight.
"Thanks." I yelled loud enough for him to hear me.
