Johns nods "I heard that. I have a reason, but not the chance." he says "I got a son asking where his dad is always heading off to and the wife can't really explain why dad's got to risk his life for someone who isn't mom and him." he sighs.

"Once I get enough saved up, I'll have a chance at a normal life." he says, then claps Cadmus on the arm "Get some rest, buddy. I'll see ya in the morning." he says as he wanders back to his room.

Cadmus made a mental note to see what he could do about helping Johns get to that dream sooner. Money was a little thing he really had no use for himself. Helping people like that on the other hand, he didn't mind in the least bit.

After he left, he went go get some well earned rest and prepare for the next day.

The night passes without anything else happening and soon enough, it was morning. There was a knock at the door "Excuse me, mister Cadmus? Room service." says a young woman on the other side of the door.

Cadmus was already up and about when he heard his name being called. "Just a moment."

Finishing up in the bathroom he came out to open the door for the room service. "Thanks. I was getting a bit hungry." He wasn't sure if a 'normal' human Heartless would need to eat or not but he did. He guessed as long as a being didn't give the complete finger to physics, they would still follow some basic rules if they had vital signs and the like.

The young woman wheels in a cart with some covered plates on it "Here you go. It's all complements of the house." she says "Just leave the cart and everything outside your room when you're finished and we'll get it taken care of." she says with a smile "Enjoy your breakfast, sir." she says, then wanders out to let Cadmus enjoy his meal.

Cadmus ate his food a bit slower, mainly because he was thinking of a few things but once he was done he left the cart outside the room before heading back in. He hadn't finished everything completely so he worked on that in the mean time.

There was a knock on his door "Hey Cadmus! It's me Johns. We got the green light to see Miss Sylibus after we hit the police station." he says.

Of course, Cadmus came in a few moments later geared up and ready to go. "Let's get this ride started then. You sleep good?"

Johns nods "As well as could be expected, considering the ruckus last night." he says as he escorts Cadmus to the car "Once we're done with the cops, we'll head across town to Miss Sylibus's building. That's the most secure location for her." he says as they take off.

"After that, we'll head back to the site of the attempt on her life and secure the area. Well, we already have a team out there securing the area, we're just going to see how things are going." he explains as he reads from his 'List of things to do'.

"After that, we'll pick up Miss Sylibus and escort her to the site to inspect it. We're expecting some of the locals in the area to protest, so be on guard." he cautions "After that, it's lunch, a few more indoors meetings, then back to her hotel." he finishes "Any questions?" he asks.

Cadmus shook his head. "Sounds pretty standard. And it'll be nice working with others for once on a job. Most of the time it's usually just me against the world. Not surprised the locals are protesting, Zoanthropes aren't liked much or most non humans in general. I'm not exactly human either."

He got into the car before too long. "Yeah, one somewhat related. Who is Naomi's big allies and who are her enemies?"

Johns shrugs "It's anyone's guess at who her enemies are. They seem to come out of the woodworks lately, but her Major threats are the Tylon Corporation, their subsidiary company, Cybertrec Corporation and Tricell Pharmaceutical." he says.

"However her major allies are Ultra-Tech, Mystic Incorporated, Powers Industries and she's trying to get one more. It's a small time corporation, but she's trying to invest in it." he sums up.

"I've heard of pretty all of these, but what's this small company she's trying to invest in or at least who runs it if you don't know the name?"
Cadmus was trying to get as much information as possibe about these things if he was going to be around Naomi for a extended period of time.

Johns looks over his notes "Some small time inventor named Calvine Mort. Miss Sylibus thinks he's got great ideas and want to see about investing in his company." he says "But there have been, set backs." he mumbles the last part as he keeps looking at his notes.

"Yep! That's all I really have on that subject. If it doesn't seem like a threat to Miss Sylibus, then I don't pay too much attention to it." he says as they stop at the police station. "I'll wait here. Have fun." he says with a grin.

"Yes. Talking to the police and doing their paper work will be as fun as root canal. I'll be back
." Cadmus got out the car, steeling himself and headed on in to get this over with.

About a half hour later, the police were done with Cadmus. They gave him a copy of the picture he helped put together. Johns welcomes him back and they take off "You know, I could swear I've seen this guy somewhere before." he says as he looks over the picture of the perp.

He hands it back to Cadmus "Oh well. I'm sure if the police find out anything they'll give you a call." he says "So, starting today, we'll be working together to protect Miss Sylibus. We'll go in rotations, so we don't get burnt out." he explains.

"I'll take the day shift and you'll take the night shift. Not quite sure how that'll work out, but I figure Miss Sylibus will think of something." he shrugs "Oh yeah, before I forget. After you meet Miss Sylibus, she'll insist you call her Naomi. She's a really kind woman that and many other ways." he adds.

Cadmus followed after the Zoanthrope. "If that's what she wants, it works perfectly fine for me. I've never been one for huge formalities unless I have too. Doesn't mean I don't know how to play the game, its just one I never liked much. That's why I could never be a politician, I'd tell people the truth instead of what they want to hear."

After a moment, he added. "You have a picture of your family?" He did of his. It was nice to have even if it turned out be one huge cruel joke.

They get to the building and start out. Johns chuckles to Cadmus's question "No. I don't carry anything on me that might put them in danger." he says as they reach an elevator. There were several security guards inside and several more in plain clothes.

The elevator they went to needed a combination, which doubled as a biometric scanner and they needed a keycard after they got in "A bit excessive, I know. But some of Miss Sylibus's enemies are That serious about stopping her." he points out.

"If I was a big influnctial person I'd want all this extra security too."
Cadmus added. "So Ultra Tech supply this sort of stuff or someone else?"

Johns shrugs "Probably. As far as Ultra-Tech really goes, they maintain a presents, but rarely contribute much." he says. It doesn't take the elevator long to get to the top floor.

When it opens, there was another guy waiting with a portable metal detector "Hey Johns. Is this the new guy?" he asks.

Johns nods "Yeah. Parker, this is Cadmus. Cadmus, this is Parker. He fills in for me when I'm not here." he says. "He's cool." he says to Parker.

They were in a pretty sizable office and at the end was a big desk with young woman sitting behind it. She stands when Johns walks close "Cadmus, this is Miss Naomi Sylibus." he says.

Larry was right about one thing, Naomi was a looker in her own right. He had seen plenty of attractive women before of course but Naomi had a certain..'presence' to her for lack of a better word. In the end it all had to do with how you carried yourself.

He extends his hand. "It's nice to finally meet you miss Sylibus. I've heard a lot of good things about you."

Naomi takes Cadmus's hand "Thank you, mister Cadmus. You're too kind." she says as she motions for him to take a seat "Please, call me Naomi. There's no need to stand on ceremony." she says as she takes a seat.

"Would you like something to drink?" she offers as a small robot comes rolling over with a tray of drinks on it "That's Weebo. A gift from Ultra-Tech." she says with a smile.

Cadmus smiled but shook his head. "No, no I'm all right but thank you. If we're on that subject then just call me Cadmus, and I'll just call you Naomi." The robot was something he hadn't seen before but he wasn't too surprised, Ultra Tech was..we'll it was in the whole name really when it came down to it.

Naomi nods, looking to the robot "Thank you, Weebo. You may leave." she says as the robot starts off "Weebo!" it says as he rolls away.

Naomi focuses back to Cadmus "I assume that Johns had explained everything about your position?" she asks "If you have any questions, please feel free to ask." she offers.

"Honestly? I can't think of anything on the top of my head really major right now. But its a two way street, if you have any questions about me I'll answer. Long as they aren't too personal. But yeah, Johns explained about everything when I first started and made me feel at home."
Cadmus says.

Naomi nods approvingly, still smiling "Well good. That's what we try to do here. Give everyone that 'second home' feel." she says "Let's see..." she looks over some papers "Johns will be taking the morning shift and you'll be the night shift. I'll give you the tour later of where we'll be spending most of the time." she says.

"Well, I believe that about covers it for now. We'll get your security clearances taken care of today and show you to the room you'll be staying in." she says as she stands, extending a hand "Once more, welcome and it was a pleasure meeting you." she says with a smile.
