Meeting with the Governor

Posted April 10, 2021, 9:36 p.m. by Civilian Lucas Elliot Holloway (Business Owner) (Jerome Davis)

The impeccably dressed Chief Operating Officer of Holloway Heavy Industries, Dominique Alexis Bruner, stood outside the Transporter Arrivals Pad looking slightly impatient as looked at her chrono for the fifth time since arriving at OED’s Government Tower and sighed as her eyes cut sharply to the smartly groomed (and painfully obvious) Corporate Security Agent. As she did, the Agent spoke into his wrist comm and a moment later returned his eyes to the COO. “Platform confirms the Cavalier’s arrival Ms. Bruner… something about popping in basically on top of them. They fuzzed the sensors when the Platform went Active. Platform Control said they should be down any minute.” There was a huff from the woman as she looked back to Arrivals Lobby entrance, running her fingers through her shoulder-length dark chestnut hair before turning back to the Agent. “My God Malcolm, its like he has absolutely no clue about how to maintain a personal schedule! 14 damn years I’ve known him and still… I don’t think he’s been on time more than half a dozen times!”

“Now now Alex, I wouldn’t go that far.” Came the voice to her left and Bruner closed her eyes, took a slow breath, then turned to face the approaching party. “Yes… but it’s not that much of a stretch, is it Lucas?” The party of four came to a stop and Holloway’s broad smile met hers. “Come on Alex…” He began as he extended his hand, giving a playful wink. “… you know you missed me” Bruner laughed as she shook the offered hand. “Not even a little…” She winked in response before shifting to the rest of the party. “… but these two…” Alex dropped the hand shake and wrapped her arms around Rainer in a warm embrace. The women shared a tight hug before Alex leaned back and smiled. “It’s good to see you Kit…” Bruner said as she greeted the uniformed Captain of the Cavalier. “You too Alex” The Captain beamed. “And you!” Alexis turned to the head of Holloway’s now permanent Security Detail, nearly jumping into the arms of the embarrassed Security Chief. Kissing him on the cheek, Alex squeezed him tight. “How’s the world’s most adorable little brother?!” Glowing in embarrassment, the Security Chief pried himself free and after tugging his jacket straight, glared at his eldest sister in annoyance. “I’m perfectly fine Dom’…” He growled in frustration as his charge snickered softly beside him. “… it’s not like we didn’t see each other six weeks ago at mom’s birthday party.” “Oh…” Alexis began as she attempted to pinch the man’s cheek before he pulled away. “… a girl just isn’t allowed to miss her baby brother anymore?” “Not…” He growled. “… in the middle of an Arrivals Lounge. You do know they tried to blow him up… right?!” He snapped under his breath and Alexis finally caved, knowing Andrew was in no mood to play. “Hell… you’re never any fun!” Reaching past him, Alexis shook the other man’s hand. “It’s nice to see you Michael.” “You as well Ms. Bruner” Came the welcome from Holloway’s Chief of Staff. With that, Alexis turned back to Lucas. “Shall we? Your meeting is in less than ten minutes…” She began before motioning up. “And its at the top of one big frackin’ building!”

(9 minutes later)

The majority of the party both with Lucas and Alexis had disbursed by the time he and Alexis, along with Andrew, entered the lift to the Governor’s Office. The trio stepped out into the lobby and walked toward the receptionist’s desk. Stopping just before the desk, Lucas flashed a charming smile. “Pardon me… Lucas Holloway to see the Governor. We’re expected.”
