Cameron was seen to be cleaning up the dropped pot of water on the floor, as Terri and Andromeda left with Rebecca Abendana. As they left, Jane made a call to David, who was meeting with one of his contacts to get the gear and information he would need to enter and exit Rebecca’s place of business properly. Jane then filled David in on the sale of the WMD’s and the trackers, asking him to keep an eye out for tracking devices or frequencies. David’s response was “Yipee. Apocalypse Number 13”. Jane also told David about Rebecca’s release at Studio 54 by Andromeda and Terri.
Jane then contacted The Agency to not have her call not answered. She then called Agent Ivanova directly, getting her voice mail. Jane left a message regarding no one answering the phone and her being inbound.Jane then told Cameron, who then confirmed that she couldn’t reach The Agency through the Internet either. Jane then contacted Agent Foley, asking him if he had contacted HQ. He said he hadn’t, and when Jane told him what was up, he said, “Agent Edwards and I are nearby. We’ll check it out and contact you shortly.”
Meanwhile, David entered One World Trade Center and took the stairs to the 10th Floor. David looped the camera’s for the hallway and made his way to Rebecca’s office. He noticed several security measures on the clear glass doors which looked into the reception area for David and Sons Import/Export Inc. He noticed an external network access panel. David climbed up from the hallway into the drop ceiling, assuming panther form to slip through an opening from the hallway ceiling to the reception area, into the hallway area on the right., seeing an office with “Rebecca Abendana, Executive Director”. The other hallway was similar (5 office doors, one on each side and one at the end), the door at the end saying “Lyla Kelly, Associate Director”. David followed all the cables in the ceiling to the Network room, accessing the systems form the ceiling by slipping a network cable into the server farm (using an extension system and resuming human form). He quickly entered into the system, inadvertently missing a flag which logged his entry into the system. Not finding anything about frequencies, David then retrieved his gear and made his way (via the ceiling) to Rebecca’s Office.
Slipping above Rebecca’s office, David examined the room, noticing an obvious safe behind a painting, looping the separate camera in the office. He set the camera to loop (show the same frame for 10 minutes) and lowered himself into the office he then found a second safe in her desk, and finally a third safe in the floor. Disabling the alarms on this safe, David opened it, discovering 4 passports, $100,000 in German Bearer Bonds, and a three subject notebook. Inside the book was page and page of writing, all in Hebrew. David took the notebook, closed up, and left. As he assumed Panther form, David smelled an Eagle in the Associate Director’s office. David resumed human form and went to investigate, seeing, sitting at the Associate Director’s Desk, a Bald Eagle, which looked right at him. David slipped away at this point and went to Serena Elessidil’s. Serena made some calls to have the records on her door recovered.
Andromeda and Terri brought Rebecca to Studio 54, and left as soon as Rebecca entered.
Jane, V.S., Cameron, and Charles made their way to Agency HQ. Jane received a call from Agent Foley, who told her that Agency HQ was under Quarantine lock, instituted by The Director. He indicated that this also included a Security Lockdown, which meant nothing was getting in or out of Agency HQ. Jane debated contacting Homeland Security or the FBI, but Charles pointed out that doing so, might cause more fear and panic among the populace, which in turn, would make things easier for Adrika Niranjana and The Master to perform more Black Magic. Seeing little other recourse, Jane placed a call to Jack Bauer, reaching Renee Walker, discovering Jack is out of the office. Jane left her cell number for Jack. Jane and the others then arrived at the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel Authority.
Agents Foley and Edwards were outside, looking frustrated., telling Jane they had both been unable to get inside. Jane asked Charles and V.S. if they could come up with some way of reaching someone inside, and V.S. thought sending a demon inside would be a bad idea. Charles figured contacting Agent Ivanova would be easier, being she was formerly a White Council Warden. As Charles began to prepare, David called him, breaking his concentration. David quickly to Charles about the notebook he found, and Charles recommended David contact Dr Patricia Fairlane .
Charles’ Thaumaturgy was successful and the group spoke with Agent Ivanova, who told them that 70% of The agency was affected. The Director was helping those she could, and prior to the Bio-Weapon being released into the Ventilation system occurred, Anonymous infiltrated The Agency’s system, hence the security lockdown. Jane told her about the WMDs and was ordered to deal with the WMDs, Jennifer Vanderbilt, and Adrika Niranjana
David contacted Patricia, and arranged bringing the notebook to her at The Museum of Natural History for translation. Before dropping the notebook off, David made photocopies of the entire notebook.
Everybody then rendezvoused at The Flame of Knowledge at 8PM. As soon as the group met up, David asked Terri if she knew anything about a Fae Eagle. Terri knew nothing of one, stating that something of that might be more from David’s side of the tracks. David shared the name on the office door as Lyla Kelly, and Jane drew the conclusion that Lyla Kelly was Lady Lyla and suggested that the Eagle might be connected to Lady Lyla.
The group brought David up to speed on what Rebecca shared, and as the group began discussing their information, Jane’s phone rang, a call being relayed from FBI. It was Lady Lyla, wanting to know why ‘you associate’ (David) was breaking into the office. Several hints were made and Lady Lyla offered to meet with the others, and perhaps arrange a meeting. After conferring with the group, Jane agreed and Lady Lyla agreed to meet with the group in an hour.
Resuming their discussion, Andromeda asked about the what happened at The Agency, and Jane confirmed a biological agent was released into Agency Headquarters with 70% fatalities. Charles emphasized that the group could not let the knowledge of the disease get out as it would help fuel a panic and strengthen the Necromancers.
Just before 9PM, Lady Lyla arrived, V.S. inviting her inside. Jane made a round of introductions and after Lady Lyla sat down, and asked the group why they were interested in the company she worked for and Jane explained about Rebecca’s business. Lady Lyla offered to answer 5 questions in exchange for a favor from Jane. Jane agreed, laying the condition that she not be asked to harm or betray The American Government, and that any favor not involve Jane’s death. The second request, caused Lady Lyla to change the number of questions to four.
The group asked Lady Lyla for the frequency for the WMD’s and she gave them the frequency.
They then asked for the location of The Lock of Solomon, and she had no knowledge but said she could tell them who it was sold to. The group did not ask this.
Jane then said that was all of their questions, and Lady Lyla took her leave, catching a cab outside.
David arranged to get the equipment needed for utilizing and tracking the frequency (from one of his contacts Martha Haul). The equipment indicated that the Nerve Agent was located in Central Park near Aspen’s Tree.
Cameron pointed out that ‘This is being done backwards. The Bio Agent should be in the park and the Nerve Agent in Agency HQ". Andromeda asked Charles about Magical tampering and Charles pointed out that it might not be out of the pervue of Anonymous. Andromeda then looked into the Nerve Agent, discovering it was a derive of VX developed just prior to the fall of the Soviet Union, and then saw a Guy Fawkes Mask on her screen, prior to her laptop frying. Andromeda shared this information and the group decided to swiftly depart. Charles attempted to contact Aspen magically, only to discover his spell diverted, instead reaching a being in a black robe and Guy Fawkes Mask. The person offered assistance to the group in exchange for them not pursuing Jennifer Vanderbilt (he assured that he could cease Jennifer’s involvement with The Master).
After the group agreed, The Person told them that the Nerve Agent was being stored at Aspen’s Tree, though she was not aware of what she had. He also shared that the plan of those who purchased the items had six briefcases with three canisters per briefcase and that their plan was to release them into the NYC subway during Monday Morning Commute. Prior to the communication ending, the person indicated that Aspen was aware of the identity of who she made the deal with.
Arriving at 11:30 PM, the Park was empty. The group arrived at Aspen’s tree, and Charles asked her to appear. As usual, Aspen appeared, asking what Charles wanted. Aspen asked what he wanted, and Charles responded that he needed the briefcases that were in her tree. Aspen said she couldn’t, that she bargained to protect the briefcases till she returned to pick them up. Charles responded with telling her that they needed the items inside the briefcases and bargained the tracking device for the contents inside the briefcase. Aspen then brought them out of her tree and David, with Andromeda’s assistance, began disabling the anti-tampering systems and opening the cases. David failed on one, hearing a beep and realizing that he had triggered a system that had filled the case with the gas. The group then debated how to open the case without dying, which caused Jane to reach inside her messenger bag and pull out an inflatable kiddie pool.
In exchange for his digital watch, Aspen told David that there was a lake on the other side of her tree, just off the Yellow Brick Road. She seemed to want to say more, but didn’t, at least for free. As Charles debated what to do, Aspen began to hum “Gangnam Style” and doing the dance. Aspen began to babble, letting slip that Lady Ariel was mad with David and had banned him from Summer, telling any Summer Fae who met him in Summer, were to kill him.
Vandalizing a water fountain, the group inflated the pool and filled it with water. Aspen saw this and said, “Ya! Pool Party, and jumped into the pool” After Aspen got out of the pool, David used the water in the pool to safely open the case. The group then had Terri freeze the water (after David got out) and then debated what to do with the contaminated ice which Aspen wanted go.
At this point, there was suddenly a voice that shouted, “What the HELL are you people doing?” as two Cops emerged form the trail. Jane asked them if Captain Moonsinger was on duty, and had the cops call it in, using her name. After speaking wiht their Captain, the cops bid the group ‘goodnight’ and moved on. Walking a 100 feet from Aspen’s Tree, Charles opened a gate and he and V.S. levitated the ice through it.
Dealing a bikini to Aspen in exchange for who ‘she’ was, Aspen told them that she was to guard the Briefcases until Rebecca Charles came by to pick them up, along with two men speaking a language she didn’t know. Andromeda made an assumption and spoke some arabic, which Aspen confirmed it was the language they spoke. Showing her pictures of Adrika Niranjana and Rebecca Abendana Aspen confirmed that the woman she was waiting for was neither.
As the group prepared to leave, Jane’s phone rang. It was Jack Bauer, returning her call. Jane told him the reason for her call was no longer needed. He said good night and hung up
