In reply to GM (msg # 1):

Kyle sat down in his office chair and looked around taking in the cluttered office. There were photos clipped to boards, post-it notes stuck absolutely everywhere. He shuddered, and looked down at his desk. As usual, it was spotless, everything meticulously place. He pulled out the ruler again, just to make sure the keyboard was in its place, the postit notes weren't... quite... right. He nudged them a fraction and he smiled. His eyes rolled back inside his head as he closed them, trying to drown out the discord that surrounded him. He had moved his desk into the corner of the modestly-sized office. It allowed him to see everything that went on. To observe everything. But it also acted like a barrier, a wall from the carnage and chaos that surrounded him.

Happy that everything in his little section was as it should be, he popped in his earbuds and leaned back, allowing the music to smother him.

Walking into the room Nathan headded diretly to his desk casefully balancing an over-full mug of coffee in one hand and typing away on his phone with the other. Only spilling the coffee a couple of times he reached his desk, before looking down at the surface with a frown. "Gorram 'Clean Desk' policy" he muttered before spotting an envolope from a parts manufacturing magazine he had suscribed to a while ago. Taking a big slurp from the coffee he then placed it on the 'coaser' he had found.

Glancing in Kyle's direction he smiled and waved a little to ensure he had his attention. Nathan waited for him to remove an earbud before adressing him, "Heya, How are you doing Kyle? Been up to much over the weekend?" As Kyle answered he started to sort though the piles on his desk shifting a few small packets with spare parts into draws and the junk mail either into the bin or appropreate files. Within a couple of minuets the desk was clear except his computer, coffee and a couple of files stacked against the wall.

Kyle begrudgingly removed the earbud as his co-worker addressed him.

"I... I am good. No. Nothing. Nothing at the weekend," he started to move the headphone back to his ear when he paused, turning back to Nathaniel, "And you Nathaniel?"

Kyle nods to himself proudly. He had aced this social interaction. A goofy grin crept across his face.

"One." He whispered quietly- to noone in particular.

Laughing briefly at the expression that crossed Kyle's face Nathan swiveled on his chair to face him. "Nah nothing much. Been mostly trying to fix up my home PC, I keep meaning to do a full re-work but every time I do something comes up. I swear I have half finished that thing twenty times." Nathans gaze drifed slightly as if thinking of something else. "Well not to worry still works well, just not as well as the parts should allow it." Grabbing his coffee and taking another gulp he reclined in his chair hitting the power to his PC. "You got much on today or just going through the reports?" He queried as he casually glanced at the clock on the wall.

The familiar sound high heels approaching sounded down the hallway, and Skye leaned on to the doorway, smiling at the two men. She was perfect like always, with her sun kissed skin, and her blond hair bouncing down around her shoulders. Wearing a smart light brown suite complete with thigh hugging skirt, and a light pink blouse.

"Morning," she said brightly smiling at the pair, she had a grande cup of Starbucks coffee in her hand. Her eyes glazed over Kyle's desk and she looked a little amused. "I think you missed a spot Honey." she said pointing to one of the post-its, before taking a sip of her coffee, and sauntered over to her desk placing her cup neatly down onto a coaster, and slided elegantly into her seat.

A security staff member, a big fella about the size of a fridge-freezer wanders into the room. He nods with a smile as he quickly scans inside. "Morning kids" He said gruffly. His scan of the room maybe stopped on Skye a touch longer than needed.

"I-I've done my reports. I.. Hello Skye. Uh. Umm. I am not a.... Umm.... Hello?"

His face screwed up tightly, he wasn't expecting everyone to come in at once. He paused for a moment. It was almost like they had been waiting for their turn. No. That couldn't be it. These were his colleagues and he was there to help his colleagues and they were there to help him.

"Umm... Nathaniel? I could take a look at your computer? If you wanted? I am free most evenings. Except Fridays. Never free on Fridays." His eyes slowly stared off into a middle distance before snapping back to the conversation at hand.

"Two." He whispered under his breath, a little more uncertain than the first.

Smiling at Skye as she came in Nathan nodded in her direction. "Mornin' Skye!" He chimed before turning back to Kyle. "Nah its no bother, I know what I'm doing I just like tinkering with it. Next time I'm doing a project I'll give you a message." He smiled.

As the security guard stuck his head in he grinned over at him "Morning, had a quiet weekend I take it?"

Skye gave the security guard a smile, as she started up her computer. "Good morning!"

she picked up her coffee to have a drink, and tapped in her password, and started to go through her emails. "oooh, 15% off Armani perfume, yes please~"

Kyle smiled as he sat back in his chair, he checked that no one was looking to address him and slowly snuck the ear bud back into his ear, but he turned the music down a little, although he couldn't bear to miss any of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata', he wanted to make sure if someone wanted him. He was ready. He peered deep into the shaving mirror he had at the side of his desk. Nope. No not a hair out of place. He grinned at his distorted face in the mirror. Today would be a good day.

"Yeah, and a quiet week before that" He stretched his 6'2 frame, for a moment looking much older than he seemed. "But when you get to my age, that's a good thing. See ya later kids" He kinda waved round too everyone before he walked away down the corridor, whistling as he walked.

Nathan gave a little wave as the guard continued on his rounds. Quickly tapping in his password Nathan waited a few moments for the systems to load before bringing up his e-mails. "Huh nothing much happening it seems, couple of reports to check. Oh Kyle there is something here you might be intrested in I'll forward it over." Checking the CC of his most recient mail he glanced at the other two in the room. "Looks like we have a date guys." His eyes shot to the clock for a moment "Got a while to prep but you know what they mean when they say prompt. Thirty minuets early or your in trouble."

Opening up the company server and entering his details Nathan started to skim through the weekend reports making sure there was nothing he couldn't put off until later or do with time to spare.

"A date?" Skye looked amused, as she clicked open her handbag and removed a compact mirror and some lip gloss. "More like an early noon luncheon. I hope there'll be bagels." she checked herself in her mirror, giving her gloss a little touch up before snapping the mirror close.

"So, normal boring weekend hm? Do you guys even do anything but play computer games when at home?" she asked playfully, as she took a hold of her mouse and started to click through her files.

' added in in places. A bit strange, seeing as the report held nothing of any real interest.]

Kyle looked up and blinked acknowledgement. He continued to check his emails, and got things ready, finishing his plans for Friday, before encrypting the information and saving on his pen drive. He logged back onto the mainframe system and locked his computer. He pulled out his tablet and continued to tap away while rising up out of his chair and heading towards the doorway.

"Fecking people!" Nathan exclaimed "Give them a computer and they cant help but download crud from the internet can they? Nearly all these errors are people being idiots." Looking up at Kyle as he made his way to the door he sighed quietly. Shrugging a little he turned back to the task at hand, Kyle was a bit of an enigma though a nice enough guy. Maybe he would be interested in doing some drone modding sometime. "There you go Skye. Lunch. Date. Same difference really." He smirked in her direction before opening a PM to the admin console.


Nathan leant back in his seat briefly before reaching forward once again and starting to debug a few basic system flies.

Skye frowned as she read over what was on her screen, it deepend as she scrolled down the screen.

"Have you guys been messing around with my files?" she asked, sounding a little irritated, and started rapidly clicking away with her mouse.

Kyle gave Skye a puzzled look.

"Something is missing from me too."

His face quickly distorted to panic as he darted back to his computer.

"Is... Is this you?" he looked up accusingly as Nathaniel as he continue to type into his computer, accessing his emails and running various personally modified (or varying degrees of legality) diagnostic programs.
