Maxwell bites his lip gently and takes a moment to ponder her question, flipping through the information he’d collected already in his mind to help him answer properly. Although the two could be related, Nexus’ motives are more long term — they already have an advantage politically and socially so I doubt they’d need the help of some nonprofessionals to do their dirty work. These groups don’t scream hired by a multi-million dollar corporation seeking to end posthumans they’re more along the lines of trying to take justice into their own hands. It wouldn’t be my first time either, but I’m still investigating so I can’t give you any solid information besides the crimes that have been committed. A slight smirk was given to the woman as he passes her a few helpful files. Believe me, I know you are a woman of many responsibilities, I wouldn’t waste your time with a dead end or something unimportant Ms.Strauss.
With an outstretched hand, Strauss reaches for the files that have been handed to her. She immediately brights them to her and opens the folder. A finger points at the information she’s reading and traces fairly quickly to the end of the page, and then hooking her index on the paper, she passes the page to the next one and continues to read. Nodding her head at the information here and there until she’s finished and closes the folder. You’re a smart man, Mr.Cross. I don’t like telling people what they already know. They’re a potential threat, and from what I just read, they’re already accused of murder. She puts the folder on the desk and leaves it alone. The best way to catch them is to organize a scenery where they’ll feel comfortable coming out to the public— which brings us back to that speech. With me, that should be no problem. Now the real question is: what do you plan on doing if they show up? … I may be the “Almighty Tracy Strauss”, but if I were to be in a situation where I’m forced to use my ability— that could damage my reputation. She gives him a half-smile, reminding him that she would be putting her head on the guillotine on this one.
The man noticed the way her face remained calm as if this was routine to her by now, then again she was in politics and that was their charm. Being able to separate emotions at appropriate times and use them wisely was a gift very few had, Maxwell being one of the many who lacked it. He liked the way Tracy operated though, very similar to himself — he reckoned their interactions might go pretty smoothly in the future. I figured as much, but it’s never safe to assume. We have been on the brink of a so called “War” for a very long time, however, recently things have changed.These radical groups are growing smarter and more popular. They have been roughing up the public and making things even messier for us, my job is to find the parties responsible and help stomp this roach. But I’m afraid politically I’m useless, which is where you come in. These people need to know that PROTECT is not going to let these assholes ruin it for everyone.Who better for the job than the almighty Tracy Strauss right?
Already judging his character, Tracy raised a red flag against him. The term asshole before a politician of prestige gave her the impression that he let his mouth take control instead of thinking before speaking. But he wasn’t at the top of his job for nothing— and Tracy had learned long ago not to judge a book by its cover. Underestimating someone can be potentially fatal. These groups you speak of— do you think they could somehow be related to the group known as Nexus? She asked with a tilt of her head, as she rotated the chair with a push of her heel towards the right. Wouldn’t be the first time I’ve dealt with them. Virginie Maréchal, an unknown red head (Vivian Maxwell), and Henry King, among other’s she had met.
HUCAW: Day 4: Best Line
Clearing his throat, Maxwell leans forward to speak to Tracy, not breaking eye contact. His mindset goes straight to business and the tone of his voice grows more serious. What’s so important is a recent rise of some radicals against posthumans — since the removal of Mr.Pegg certain zealots have been taking measures to scare any politicians who might also be hiding any special talents. One of their recent feats was the hazing of a senator who supports the posthuman movement. You good at speeches?
Memorizing everything he said almost instantly was one of the many talents she had, thanks to serving the governor Madden and Pegg. Nothing he said surprised her; she was used to these situations by now. Before proceeding to respond to Maxwell, she took a second to analyze the words she was going to say. Yes. I have done speeches in the past — I was an adviser to two governors, also. She shows no sign of negative emotions. She simply remained calm and collected. I’m guessing you want me to organize a speech, or something similar. Am I right?
After another sip of his coffee, Maxwell is reminded of precisely what case she’s referring to. He nods with a small chuckle before finding the file she needed and putting it out for her to grab. Trust me, Ms.Strauss, I am aware of who you are. All you had to do is ask. Her strong charisma and attitude certainly grab the man’s attention, so he announces his own position thereafter.Maxwell Cross, head detective here in reconnaissance, at your service.
Tracy almost snickers at him as she proceeds to enter his office the moment he offered his service to her. She pulled a chair and sat down, crossed a leg over the other after she sat down. Let’s get straight to business, then. Tracy makes direct eye contact with Maxwell as she uses her index to tuck her locks behind her ear. What’s so important that requires my attention?
[Maxwell sips his coffee quietly, reading the daily news in his small moment of down time before he hears someone enter his office. Without looking up he speaks in a tired and blunt tone.] Before you begin,do remember that it is Monday which has enough bad news of it’s own. Please tell me you’ve got some good news for both our sakes. How can I help you?
Tracy tilts her head to the side as she narrowed her eyes at the attitude Maxwell showed. Leaning against the door, she crosses her arms. Mornin’ to you too. She clears her throat. I was sent here because I was told you had information on a case that involved political matters. I’m the head of the political department. My name’s Tracy Strauss. She automatically smiles proudly upon pronouncing her own name.
