Ambassador Maya Landling sat back in the plush chair of her Port Oasis office. The digitally enhanced photographs on her desk clearly showed her friend and assistant Jeremy Tessier in a romantic interlude with a local girl identified as Reyna Kross. Even before her head of security said so, Maya knew well that Kross was in the employ of AST Lord Protector Jacques Molay - her most powerful political enemy. Maya took a breath before continuing. "Just what do you suggest?"
"Well," began Yannick, her security chief, "we might be able to use this. If we can manage them both we could perhaps get information on Molay rather than the other way around. It will take some careful moves, however."
"Too many of them, I'm afraid. We can't take any unnecessary risks anymore." Maya felt a pain rise in her chest; some would have called it remorse. "Deal with them both... and make it painless."
