The giant in the gray suit snapped into a serious and professional tone, speaking slowly and deliberately, “In precisely 34 hours, 22 minutes, and 18 seconds, armed assailants will take everyone you see hostage, killing several.”
The brunette in the leather coat seemed to perk up at this news, “Do our orders include direct engagement?” He rubbed his hands together, “I do enjoy direct action!”
“Yes, brother, we all know that. Unfortunately, negative,” replied the blonde. “Indirect, third party only.” The giant in the cowboy hat was horrified, “NOT HER! But why?” He turned away in disgust and gripped the handrail in frustration, “She’s the worst! Seriously the ugliest creature I have encountered, well, since….”
“Cleopatra?” Blonde offered.
The bigger giant shook his head, “Ok, let’s not go overboard; she’s no Jezabel.”
“Yeah, but to be a Jezebel, you must believe in something.”
Grey suit turned around, facing the same direction as his brother, “Oh, she believes in something all right.” He paused for effect, “Herself.”
