Shelby Meeting with Huntington

Huntington, ST and Penelope gather at the vault.  Shelby was unable to place the two agents and is ever trying....she did a all niter and frazzled.

Huntington:  How is it going Shelby?
Shelby:  It didn't go as planned, still working on it.
Huntington:  That bad?
Shelby:  That bad.
Huntington:  Here <hands her a ticket>  take a break and head out to Japan make good and collect samples.  When you get back try again.
Shelby: <She looks at the ticket and the flight leaves in a hr.>  Sounds good.
<Shelby takes a record shower and is escorted to the helio pad.>  She boards the helicopter and sees Huntington, ST, Penelope and Savana sitting there.  Savana points to the jump seat.  Shelby straps in and away they go. No body says a word the whole trip.They land at a air strip where Huntington and ST get off and board a lear.  Then take off.

Penelope, Savana and Shelby are flown to a military base and land next a group  of high tech jets that will put them several hours ahead of Huntington and ST.  Each will have their own jet and are quickly suited up and escorted into the back seat of a F35 L-IIt.  All three take off and experience in flight fueling with and air craft landing where they are attend a joint task force meeting as guests.  They take off and land in Atsugi where they will be introduced to the authorities.  Savana comments that was wild as they all are driven off.

Mean while Huntington and ST just landed in Hawaii. 

Huntington:  Wonder how the girls are on their first military flight?

ST:  Probably freaking out a bit but enjoying the hell out it.

Hunington:  Chuckles. Remember operation Hurricane?

ST:  Oh yeah, a bit of rough time, but It worked.

Huntington:  You don't suppose...

ST:  The Cleaver Move. No.  To cut into one of those would be like hell. You know the reason they went to the moon is to put a sign up warning the rest of the galaxies that earth is radio active and contaminated....the scouts even had evidence of them glowing in the dark.

Huntington: Laughed. That's right...that's why other worlds are keeping their distance Let's head out to the meeting.

St:  <last sip of coffee>  Full circle ahead... lets do it.

 <corporations figured they can make billions using the moon as a billboard>

The Meeting was brief as Huntington and ST spent most of their time on aerial surveillance photos and thermal readings. Then headed back to the vault.  The girls did the same and headed back as well.

After examining the the data Huntington and ST headed out back to operation swap meet and Penelope put a crew together to fly out to several sites to gather more data and then heads to New Zealand to do some house shopping.  There seems to be a bit of hanky panky involved so once all the data is examined another team will be deployed to do the close up work.
Both Huntington and ST in route to swap meet ops

Huntington: What do you think?

ST:  Catch 22 with a rock in the hardest place!

Huntington:  Real tough one to crack.  Just the data alone is pretty hostile.

ST: Not for just any agent to take on for sure...a deadly hot seat.  Sort of like taking off but can't land...you know and understand the situation only to end up in a deadly predicament.

Huntington:  Let's wiggle this one out

ST:  Exactly

<The hatch opens on the plane and both jump out.  Both splash down in a lake and make their way to shore>

ST:  Piece of cake

Huntington:  Tell that to my wife at a party some time...I just jumped out of plane into a lake out in the middle of no where.

ST:  She would freak

Huntington:  Sure would. I think we might of broke a high dive record.

ST: Maybe I will look it up in the book of Guinness World Records when we get back.

<The both get to the holding house and ST waves and bundle of cash five times leaves the payoff and both step out of site.  The hostage is brought to the site and the cash is picked up.  ST and Huntington head to the lift off site with the hostage. 

Huntington:  There it is...the ride for the hostage out paper work and all. 

<They all jump in and head for a grassy opening out in the middle of no where adventure.  Sure enough a small plane lands for the pick up and removes them from wilderness to board a jet on stand by.

Spit in charge for ST

Both Huntington and ST are in quarantine with 1 week bed rest...the prep and stress for the hostage op worn them down to a frazzle.  Both on are tucked in bed on IV's for about a week and the pilot Ted and hostage are on observation.  The doc said it was due to something related to the water and they should be alright.  You see this op was a old boys op....the exchange had to be ST.  It was a lot of money and Huntington was backup.  They both beefed up at the pool doing laps and practiced free falls.  The cash had a two fold purpose...in the event everything went kitty whompus ST's old boy club had a back up plan in waiting.  ST say's they just don't deal with  people they don't know, period. So you have to work everyone new in slowly.  This holding house will be a op site for several exchanges and communications to come.  New op teams will learn and set up new op sites that will benefit investigations internationally. Win Win of international agents working against crime. They call themselves the "we" sort of like the opposite of they. Short slang for the special op group is WEE and yes it is french and makes a cool cover and only one way to say it right as it had an extended code.  Huntington was amused that they were able to pull off a operation and enjoyed the success it will reap. He said it sounded really complicated and hard to do but it wasn't...went off like clock work and one of the best hostage swap programs ever....operation swapmeet.  code name swapmeet.op.  Shelby's plan goes into the history books. St & Huntington will remember no ice when making a victory toast with the scotch next time..It's the new james bond cocktail not shaken or stirred just neat. Both Huntington and ST know field work is tough, sometimes you have to be told...things can get rough and out of hand, people get killed and both have made the call both ways...as they say in the old days time to clean house are you up to it? Both ST and Huntington are tuned in to it but not up to speed to fully jump right in but at the same time aware of the existing situation.  It kind of doesn't make any sense, but the first thought is what they were doing originally...going in slow and easy does it...just following instinct.

<It is all about the pilot and math (equations of motion) When that hatch opens your out, else another 100 yards to shore.>

Spit takes command of ST position.  I know you think spit is a closet case with weird friends in high places...everything but.  He got the nickname because  when he came back from a special op his team was due for a inspection, so he utilized the time while they were out spit shinning all their gear for the inspection.  He has a lovely wife and  three kids all in college.

Up and Adam

Both Huntington and ST are finally able to to get up and walk around for a short spell.
Shelby has been successful with two more exchanges using the plane without the lake.  They all think it is contaminated.  Spit's new name is STP now....the team gave him a new name along with a party.
Penelople finishes up house shopping and flys back to be with ST
ST and Hutington connected in the corridor both looked at each other and said "do over" and went about mending.
<ST new he had to put on a impressive exchange in order to get the approval and that's what he did. That will both ST and Huntington's in the event they were needed, less the transportation and plane out.  So there is some home work to get to ASAP.

Plan J

St: could not stop thingking.  But he had it.  Use the auto pilot for a night drop bring the high profile package to the end of the lake (float). A slider down cliff (small water fall) on the ridge side with no access.  31/2 day crawl to lift.

STP Baby needs new shoes.

ST: types a spec note to STP

STP:  No problem self balancing shoes will need aprox. 100 yrds.

ST:  I can make it work.

STP:  Super,  STP places an order for 30 custom surfboards for customer pick up and a courier drop off with the payment and specs.

Ted:  Makes arrangement for the delivery and prepares storage.  Then sets up a team to modify a runway.

ST: notes read memo on Casa de Cochinos and will respond soon....

No you shouldn't have to use info regards to such, it will expose ops and they know that.  What you can do is expose them for using their position of such...that's what agents should be doing and if that is not the case, then you have a problem with the agency's  ability to investigate. It's like a house with termites and sending in a painter to fix it filling in the bad areas and painting over it...looks good but the problem is still there. Definitely not fixed and will be hard to explain for more funding....We don't want people like that on our team and do the best to keep them out.  That was Penelope's message.We don't want that kind around here no matter what the title, so she black balled them all.
To put a team together to bring down financial corruption of the house, we can do that.  The short of it is you have a investigation that should of been in the back page of the political section for a week, instead the front page for years. You think we just bounced off the cabbage truck the other day and every things okay. Not.  There's stack of corporate financial corruption on my desk that if put side by side makes your investigation look like a flea circus. The charging of tax payers for exaggerated investigations as propaganda for self or a political party is unlawful...this tells me that there is something very wrong or someone is just not wise to the world enough for the position. Huntington was pissed off...she figured it out in literally minutes and they been at for years, he blacked balled you to. His actual words where oh my god that is the last thing we need. The bottom line is we don't want to see the Justice System clogged with shit any more whether a blow job or a financial scam it does not matter we want productive candidates that get things done not just running around smelling the place up, its counter productive to our goals...and over here is a huge stack  called my shit list, this ones for a pot seed found in the tread of the tire, 15 years for pulling a flag down, Rape because the bus braked and brushed a girl inappropriately.  The stack next to yours any one of them are current and well known from here to Tokyo.So that makes it a international comparison, meaning setting a bad example for how justice is handled country to country...so now we have the whole world spending all their resources on political gimmicks because someone forgot to put the seat down on the toilet and fell in.  Let's make this clear the FBI does not have our support for investigating political matters.  We're not going to continue being the plumbers further more.  You asked for my opinion now you have it...I need to back to a team that really cares about their country, not sit around and listen to a bunch  goof balls pulling underwear and screaming  wedgies. I don't have the time to spare for it.  We need to get people trained so there elder's can retire respectfully and so forth....we don't want to run into the same geriatric issue that we see as political hazard ahead. Don't get me wrong I can under stand having wise old men or women around but they don't give orders they just listen and get asked for advice. And just what kind of wise men are you going to have if you work people till they drop dead and shove them in a oven?  You are falling apart and we are not following that path.

ST: Types a note to Shelby <No more inquires from the Hill just give them busy routine.>

Shelby: Got it. No more inquires from over the hill

ST: Good

Shelby:  Uhmm over the hill requested 10 more and wants an answer asap?  And a reporter wants to interview?

ST:  Plot the 10 and they will be ready with in a week.  Journalist, holy crap.  Let me stew on that one.

Shelby: k

Huntington: Drops out into to retirement says too many idiots...rather be happy with my wife and family, not worth it.

ST is stuck to finish...typical.  Penelope breaks the news she having a baby.  Putting together the ops is a cake walk at this point. But ST knows if the money doesn't hit the barrel head and the fruit cakes get too nutty everything will be lost...and that could be a good thing. ST is thinking yeap they need to clean house in that case.  Time passed and just bunch beard pulling shenanigans and all the contacts disappear leaving one op that could go hostile with only one person with the intel to pull off any kind of high profile exchange.  That would mean more in likely they would have to shoot it out...so ST made sure a plan was in place.  He knew exactly where to place the fire power and make it work with out him.  Plan J.

No body ever heard a peep from Huntington again.  He found a home where he could get things and the fruit cakes just ruined every thing...he just left.  ST and Penelope had a baby girl and moved out of the country with no address.He prefers chocolate and does not want any thing to with the nuts running into the ground.

Plan J: Has to be all as planned.  After the slider down the ridge there will be a gorilla shoot out indicated in the plan...this is greased heavily so what is actually happening is an assassination of two moles.  Your going to hear some shots and see people just spray it just above their heads, then they will be gone and you go make the lift, okay.  Its all planed and sealed.  Just get your package out. and don't look back. Everybody will be good.

Shelby's Plan J

Shelby reads Plan J and starts the swimming program and taking high diving lessons
It is a 4 hour swim in the dark.  She has to signal the other two ahead while she finishes the job with the guerrilla fight.she fires more fire and lines the bodies and pours scent so the wild life mutilates the bodies. The actual moles are now dead and the agent and package head to the lift  Shelby then catches up with the package who also is a witness of the moles being shot.  She has to do this all in 3 1/2 days with hardly any sleep. After this Shelby will be pretty much in with boys and the toys.And she is loving it and starts making her own calls. She is living a life of her dreams and the ones before her.Something she always wanted to do since a child.taking down bad guys and making the world a better place. Some times Shelby will visit the lake of tears and cry because she misses her parents ST and Penelope who taught her every thing they knew.

Mail

After visiting the lake Shelby decided to go to the vault and sort things out.  On her desk is letter addressed with her name and the Penel St Corporation.  She opened and it was a failure to pick notice for 30 surf boards. 

Shelby:  STP you know what 30 surfboards are about.

STP:  No I don't,  May be it has to do with the Shoes for the plane that Ted has.  You can ask him

Shelby: Okay,.  
Shelby figured it was time to inspect the ops so she hops on jet to talk to Ted. 

Ted: shows her the Shoes for special landings and how they built a landing strip where the plane lands on the lake and up into the camo shed. 

Shelby:  ST built this?

Ted:  No he imagined it and I had  it constructed and STP designed the shoes.

Shelby:  You know what the surf boards are for?

Ted:  I don;t know but the Shoes came in with a invoice as surf boards.

Shelby:  I get it...we need to pick up 30 surf boards and figure out what they are for.

Ted:  Olay

Shelby and Ted drive to the surf shop where the owner says...about time we just don't have room.  Hands them the invoice and shows them 30 surf boards under a tarp.  Shelby reads the invoice and it says 30 high performance surf boards with auto speed leveling 

Shelby:  You have to be kidding...look at this

Ted:  Nope, thats ST's jump boards I remember him mumbling about.  This is going to be fun. He opened the manual and start to read.
Aerodynamic tested  Self Correcting Landing Boards for Low Altitude use.

Shelby: I taking one for practice.

Ted:  Okay

Shelby: Got to run see yah

Ted:  Alright.

Vault Closes

Shelby gets to the vault and tells STP were shutting down.

STP:  Okay where to?

Shelby:  That is what I want you to figure.  What makes for you to work optimum.

STP:  Well I can do research on where corps are heading or even better we can research ops that are leaving.

Shelby:  Let me know I don't want to  get stuck in the mud here. 

STP:  Got it. Every body is moving to mafia free zones Shelby.  There is a  no business clause with regards to mafia infected areas.

Shelby:  Okay relocate to one.

STP:  You got it. What about the vault?

Shelby:  All offices that are in infected areas will be op sites, All headquarters will be in mafia free zones. That way we can align with the global Intel communities.  I don't want to have shoot our teams out of every predicament to get things done.  It's counter productive,

STP:  It is catching on...the latest shows a big transition of businesses that want the same.

Shelby:  It is a strategy that works... teaming up.
