Kath's home revealed a level of wealth higher than her suit revealed. The drive from the road to the house, was at best guess, three-hundred yards.
The house was surrounded by a large, wood deck that seemed to wrap itself around the entire property. I couldn't see any rails or railings, and it
was only two steps high. The house itself appeared to be made entirely of glass windows. I couldn't see the sides of the house, but the front two
stories were glass, that apexed above the center. Kath stopped the car right in front. Turned off the ingition, remarked about the bottle of
Cakebread in her cellar, that we discussed earlier, and proceded to exit the car and enter the home.
I was a little shocked by what was in the house after we made our way through the front door, and Kath switched on the light. Rather, what was
not in the house. It was absolutely bare. The natural wood floor that appeared to run throughout the first floor, with the absolute lack of
wall furnishings, made our voices, and footsteps echo; giving the room a very hollow feel. The walls were stark white. The ceiling was a labrynth of
unfinished wood beams, and for the first time, I could see that the rear of the house was mostly windows as well. "I bet cleaning in here is quite
the hassle, huh?" Is all I could come up with. With a laugh Kath replied, "It sure is smartass. I'm rarely here Seth. I inherited the home from
a dear friend who took his cancer and left. I've only been in here for the last year or so, and have maybe spent a quarter of those nights here.
I've been working really hard. Like I said in the car, the Group has had me running alot of Outings." "Yeah so you mentioned." I said, "How has
that been? You like calling the shots? Drawing the board?" "No I don't Seth." Kath replied with a growing, stern look on her face. The
conversation has led us to the master bedroom which appeared to be the only room in the house with anything in it.
It was a large bedroom. Large enough to comfortably hold the oversized desk, massive plush couch with matching recliner, and of course, what appeared
to be a queen size bed, with no head or foot board. The mattress and boxspring lie flush with the floor. "Working as Lead required meeting with,
and building relationships with some higher-ups in the Group you know, Seth" Kath continued. "The work I was asked to do, came directlly from the
head of the Group himself. I was required to meet with him on multiple occasions, until the work was done. Seth, you'll be as surprised as I was,
when I tell you whom the head of the Group is. His name is Javier Ribeiro. He's a Brazilian national, residing currently in Germany. Seth, you
know, what I just told you is dangerous for my well-being right? What more I have to tell you, will be dangerous for yours."
