ON:
Inola glanced at the phone and saw that Jordon was off the line. The Admiral had just left and they had work to do. She’d already done most of the prep work so now Jordon just had to make the final call and approve it and she’d get to doing the transfers. She’d actually done far more than she needed for what the Admiral had wanted. She quickly sorted her files by team and then grabbed the tablet and knocked on the door to the inner office.
-
Jordon let out the breath he’d been holding, a mind clearing exercise he’d learned a long time ago. He wasn’t sure if the Admiral was going to be happy about the results of the discussion he’d had with his boss, but it was done… For now, anyway. The knock on the door drew his attention, “Enter” he barked out of habit without really thinking about it. Before it opened he knew it was Cpl. MacKenna, anyone else and she’d have let him know via intercom before admitting them. “What can I do for you?”
-
Inola passed him the tablet, “The Admiral requires a security team to be sent off world, gave us a time frame of 4 days. He’d started with 2 hours.” She said watching Jordon for a reaction.
-
“Two hours? I’ve got a current staff of 2 including myself and a team of what… 4?” he asked.
-
“Five, Jenkins reported in a few minutes ago.” She replied.
-
Jordon glanced down at his monitor and saw the little icon flashing in the corner, he clicked it and noticed it was informing him of that. “Oh, 5… good.” He said with just a hint of sarcasm.
-
Inola smiled, his tone not lost on her. “The team will need to be able to assist with experiments, so I’ve eliminated everyone with SpecOps history. These all have some kind of engineering history so should be able to help.” She said pointing at the tablet.
-
Jordon looked them over, he knew a lot of the names. Spend as long as he had training grunts and you get to know people. “I like Charlie team, but I think Pedersen would make a better XO.”
-
Inola shook her head, “Scuttlebutt is Pedersen just got married.”
-
“Rough… part of the job, I’d like to be back in Texas with my wife and kids.” He said knowing it was kind of a jerk attitude, but was also the truth.
-
“To Healy’s ex-wife.” She finished.
-
Jordon let out a low whistle. He never did get into the drama of it all, but she had a point. While it was part of the job that they might have to deal with each other, it was also his job to try and ensure this went smooth. “Fine… Send team Charlie as is.”
-
Inola nodded, and took back the tablet, tapped in the commands to officially form the team, then turned it back over to Jordon, “Thumbprint.” She said.
-
Jordon pressed his thumb to the reader and it digitally signed the team orders.
-
“Thank you, Colonel.” She said falling into her work patterns, “I’ll work up the transfers right away and get everything moving. She was just getting ready to leave when the phone on Jordon’s desk started ringing. It didn’t ring through her desk first so it came from someone who had his direct line. She knew she should leave, but this made her curious.
-
Jordon grabbed the phone and answered, “Col. Mason’s Desk, unsecured line.” There was a pause as someone on the other end spoke he nodded and looked at the clock. “On it.” He said and hung up. “Get everyone we’ve got suited and booted… We’re going off-world.”
