„Boss.“ I said and I remembered immediately who that man was. The one who turned me into a top agent. He always believed me. When I applied, other members of the receiving committee wanted to eliminate me, but he was against that decision. I call him the „Boss“, because no one knows his real name. He has always been a great man. Tough, but just. Now, seeing him looking at me like that, I felt so ashamed. I wanted to prove that he’s wrong.
I didn’t commit any crime, Jeff set me up, but I couldn’t. My protective instinct didn’t allow me to do anything. I couldn’t allow all those people to be killed. I just couldn’t! That was against everything I was taught and believed in. So, I just stood and stared at the floor, like a child who did something wrong and who now expects the punishment. The Boss ordered Jeff and the others to leave the room.
„Remember.“ He whispered quietly in my ear.
At that moment I couldn’t remember when I was trying so hard to resist the urge. But I couldn’t tell him the truth. I just couldn’t.
„Sit.“ He ordered. Boss’ voice was so cold. The disappointment he felt hurt me so much.
I followed his order. He turned off the surveillance and we were alone. No one could see us. But I knew Jeff planted something. On my clothes probably. I could bet he listened to us. In one moment the Boss pressed something on his watch and said: „I know!“
Then, he opened the door and invited Jeff, Vanessa, and Jonas to enter the room again.
„I’m done.“ He said sounding like a robot. „Jeff.“
„Job well done.“
„Thank you, sir.“ Jeff replied smiling.
„That’s not the truth!“ Vanessa shouted desperately.
„Agent 95!“ He said roughly. „You’ll have your chance at the trial!“
„But…“ Vanessa tried to say something.
„Enough!“ He said roughly. „Agent Holden will be in custody till trial.“
„No.“ She said. I could feel her desperation in the air.
„You and the driver, too.“ The Boss continued in his rough, but just manner. „We need to find out everything that happened. Agent 96 will do the interrogation.“
I was confused. At one moment it seemed he believed me, but in the other, he ordered Jeff to do the interrogation. What is going on?
