Chapter 2.8: Echoes of the Past, Shadows of the Future
Price stood up from his seat,"Mr. Amboy before you run off to look at her aircraft, I wonder if I might have a word."

"I know you had a rough go of it at the hands of these savages but I fear that is just the tip of the iceberg."

"It seems our Mr. Gavigan is part of a global cabal. If he slips away from Scotland Yard he will no doubt leave England and carry on his foul work somewhere else most likely in the Empire."

"No one will believe the monstrous things we've seen so it falls to us to wage war on Gavigan and his collaborators. I've already committed myself to this war. But to be honest I do not relish the idea of going off to war without a batsman."

"You already have proven yourself more than capable. So rather than going back to whatever job you may have had before, I would like to offer you a position. I sure you'll be more lucrative than what you been doing before and it'll also give you a chance the strike back at Gavigan."

"And to put Miss ten Boom's mind at rest you will be free to turn what wrenches she requires as part of your duties."

"What do you say 'Tiny'?"
Price asked with a warm smile and an affable pat on the big man's shoulder.


Tiny this is a job as a traveling companion, not a servant.

Fredde turns to Leo with a grin: "I pilot them all Dr. Elias, long as they have wings and an engine. The one I've got here is a Dutch trimotor, a Fokker F.VII, not much for aerobatics --haw-haw-- but it seats eight plus two crew and can carry about 2,000 kilos of cargo. We'll use it in the gold fields in South Africa."

To Amboy she replies, chuckling, "Alright, Tiny then. Let's get some grub and go look at my beauty."

"Glad you're not trying to Shanghai my mechanic!" she says to Harry.

In reply to Harry Price (msg # 28):

Tiny goes into a military 'attention' posture. "Sir, that is the best offer I've had in a coupla years.  A steady job, a chance to get some revenge and to help to folks which helped to save me.  I'm grateful sir. it'll be an honor to be your batsman.  Just, can I help out the lady flier when needed?  Wonderful, just wonderful!"

Leo nodded at the conversation between Harry and Tiny, then addressed Fredde. "We may have a need to head down to Africa ourselves. Are you willing to take on some passengers?"

"Capital." Price replied.

After a moment's thought, Price handed Amboy a card, "After you are finished looking over the plane, go and see my tailor, I will call ahead and he will see you fitted with some new suits as well as an appropriate coat. He will refer you to an appropriate cobbler and haberdashery as well."

"We will have you looking very dapper indeed Mr. Amboy."
Price said with a smile.

Hearing Elias, Price interrupted "Africa Dr. Elias? I too was thinking the place to seek out Gavigan might be Egypt."

"I'd be very glad of some passengers," Fredde replies, "I'll only charge you for the fuel, alright?

"With Tiny and me up front, I can take eight additional and reasonable baggage."

Rosalie Elias:
"I've a bit of knowledge in Anthropology and Archeology, as well as a few languages.  I'd be happy to accompany you, Mr. McNeil, especially as I wish to view these acquisitions, myself.  I'd especially like to have a look at that mirror, Chief Inspector.  Mr. McNeil?"  She gestured to the hallway and the rooms beyond that contained the gathered artifacts from Gavigan's property.

”I would be very appreciative of your assistance, Ms. Elias,” McNeil said. His formality had settled over him like a protective cloak as soon as he had set foot in London again. The benefit of his teenage years. The city always seemed to bring it out of him, along with an itch to return home, or to the field, as quickly as possible. His sentiment to Rosalie Elias was sincere, however. Jackson had made it clear, both within his books and their correspondence, just how capable his cousin was. Her experience curating artifacts would doubtlessly prove valuable.

The talk of Egypt immediately stirred his interest, but he focused on the policeman. ”Inspector, if you’re ready for us to proceed?”

Just then, Barrington was signing some papers that had been brought to him by Constable Hawkins.

"Some credentials are being issued for you, but if you would like to examine the array of items we've found, Constable Hawkins will escort you to the room where the items we seized from the Misr House are being held pending further investigation."

"Good day, Miss Elias, Mr. McNeil," said the Constable in greeting. He held the door for them as he would lead them towards the room where the items were being held.

"That's a kind offer, and we'll take you up on it. Would you be willing to show us the aircraft while the others are gone? We will have some luggage to bring along as well." Leo hadn't traveled all that much by air. But it was becoming more commonplace, and Leo had never been one to stand in the way of progress.

Re: Chapter 2.8: Echoes of the Past, Shadows of the Future
OOC Did Price come up with any theories on how to take control away from the Penhew Foundation and Gavigan?

Price, seeing everyone was sorting themselves out stood up, "Well I am off to the office to have a look at the legal library and see if we might not be able to strip away some resources from Gavigan."

"Inspector, thank you." Price said knowing the words were insufficient.

Leo nodded. "Sounds good, Miss ten Boom. I look forward to seeing it!"

He looked over at Tiny. "I assume you'll go with Mister Price? If not, you'd be welcome to come with me to the Aerodrome."

Re: Chapter 2.8: Echoes of the Past, Shadows of the Future
OOC:

Sorry about that.

Price understands that the police likely have seized anything they can get from the Misr House, an active crime scene. They are likely securing warrants for a search of other of Gavigan's properties. As the suspect behind a criminal conspiracy to commit multiple murders, the government could pursue a case against him towards the end of stripping him of his other properties and freezing his assets.

The Penhew Foundation, however, is a distinct legal entity, and Price will easily discover that it funds several ongoing foreign expeditions as well as serving as a leading clearinghouse of artifacts and source of experts in this area. Gavigan's wrongdoing may allow the Police to obtain a very limited warrant to search the premises and remove anything that connects with a larger investigation into the Egyptian murders, but the well-heeled Foundation will likely be represented by counsel and they can't simply just strip the entire organization of all of its assets. Gavigan was a very highly placed employee there as the Director, but still just an employee.

OOC:

The ship they seized from the docks and that they used to get to the Misr House? They already have that one. You can examine the ship itself if desired, but all its contents have been cleared - and had been cleared before you all made the trip out to the Misr House to begin with.

Also in case you missed it, Dominic and Rosalie are in the other room looking at said mirror just now, retrieved from the Misr House.

I figured that was it, but wanted to be sure.

Walter can go quietly to his rest now.

Tiny picks up his few belongings, gets fitted for a new suit, then heads to the airfield to look at the plane.

In reply to Fredde ten Boom (msg # 47):

OOC: In this case yes. He had some personal business to attend to. He would use the underground and buses as he needed.  There were several items of his in pawn shops and he had some debts to pay off before leaving London. No use in airing his 'laundry' before a prospective employer.

"Inspector, thank you." Price said knowing the words were insufficient.


"It was the least I could do. Hopefully we did right by at least a few lives, including your Mr. Cotton, though regrettably too many lives were lost while Gavigan used his position in a prestigious foundation to get up to God knows what." He shook his head.

"This was an unusual situation, Price. There are still a lot of questions that need to be answered about what exactly is afoot. The strange creatures, the rituals, Gavigan's escape, everything we've collected so far. We have sufficient evidence to charge Gavigan with any number of crimes.We found weapons that our experts have identified as the ones that were used in the Egyptian murders, so we can put that to bed as well. He'll never walk free in England again, and I'm reaching out to the places we have influence as well as my contacts in the International Criminal Police Commission to inform them of his criminal status, so travel will become a great deal more difficult for him."

Fredde would be glad to drive you around town to collect your belongings, even if Leo's left cooling his heels at Heathrow aerodrome for a while.

She'll even stand you a pint and a pasty en route.
