Leaning back in the seat on the balcony that overlooked one the business districts of OEDV, Atticus closed the lid of the small but substantial PaDD device he used for communications and his business dealings. A civilian model, it had some extra features that the flat screened models often didn’t but in return was bulkier.
He finished his coffee, slid the cup to one side for room service to tidy once he left the room and stood while he bundled the PaDD into his shoulder case. Looking out over the district, his eyes moved to the tall figure of Sacred Heart Hospital in the distance, then slowly followed the road down and along a side street to where the Cafe Serendipity was to be found. Last time he had been on OED, he had developed a fondness for the small out of the way cafe. He had need to leave the colony shortly after discovering it, but now he was back he was quietly pleased that he would be able to visit again.
Stepping out of the hotel rooms front door five minutes later, Atticus adjusted his neat leather brown jacket under the shoulder case he carried and turned for the shopping district. In his mind he ran through the invitation he had sent to the Xahean woman, Kaili. If he had done is research right, she may be able to help him solve his current problem. If he had done his research right, he smiled to himself, then he might just be able to solve one of hers as well. He needed a coffee.
The message sent to the Director of Mental Health would sit blinking in her message box.
Good Morning Director Kaili,
We haven’t met yet but my name is Atticus Wolf. I’m a property developer and investor that has recently arrived on OED. I have an interest in a property that has been abandoned for some time, but the circumstances are a little bit of a mystery and I’m trying to clear up some confusion around it.
I’m trying to find the owner, a Xahean man that lived on OED some years ago. I know you likely don’t think you have much information that might help me, but I’d like to meet over lunch perhaps if you have the time to go over some details, there were very few Xahean’s on OED at the time. If you do have the time, you can meet me at Cafe Serendipity in the Business District. It’ll be my shout for dragging you away from your busy day!
Yours Sincerely, Atticus Wolf
Atticus Wolf, Property Investment
