This week’s episode features Chapter Six of Black Brick. Here is an excerpt from the show:
I REMAINED IN MY seat on the airplane when the seatbelt sign turned off and the pilot announced we could get up.
Those around us stood and began to remove luggage from overhead bins. Beside me, Shannon was flipping through emails. She hadn’t waited for the plane to stop moving before she had turned on her phone.
I checked my watch, it was almost seven in the evening, it had been an eventful day and we’d still need to brief Beltran once we returned to Black Brick.
We’d waited for clearance from Black Brick before heading to the airport. It turned out that the video that we’d been panicking about had been too grainy to give the cops anything useful. I hadn’t seen it yet, but it showed us approaching the alley, taking out our weapons and then heading in.
Despite the assurances from Black Brick that we were safe to return, I was a little nervous that we’d find police waiting for us at the airport.
“I’m starved,” Shannon said. “Think we have time to grab a bite before heading back to Black Brick?” As she spoke, her phone rang. She listened for a moment and answered affirmatively before hanging up. “Beltran wants us back immediately. He just learned that we took a later flight. Apparently, we’re late for a meeting.” Shannon stood and pushed past me, almost running over an elderly man in the process.
I apologized to the man before following Shannon off the plane and into the airport. When Shannon decided on a course of action, heaven help anybody who stood in her way, even an old man with a cane.
