You’re the target, by the way.
I fire the phone back into my bag and barge through the glass doors of
Dunley Tech, doused in the perfume of the London underground.
Jackie, our darling receptionist, looks up from whatever influencer’s
Instagram she’s trying to imitate this week. She has packed so much powder
on her face she looks like a cake.
“Morning,” I nod curtly.
“Wow” She drags her eyes from the screen. “Your skin looks really….”
I raise my eyebrows, waiting.
“Grey.” She went on. “Were you boozing last night?”
“Thanks, Jackie,“ I replied, fumbling to find my security pass in my bag.
“That’s almost as nice as when you asked me if I had washed my hair in
conditioner. I was up until 3am sorting out the server outage if you must
“Fascinating.” She turns back to Instagram. “They have started without
you. Mike’s raging. He says you better be ill or dead to be this late.”

and half hours last night. That meant thirty staff members were unable to do
any work at all. Not one line of code written!”
“I understand your frustration Mike -” I start.
“That means horse shit, Charlie.” He slams his fist down on the table,
making the room wince.
