Simplifying and Prioritizing

I have spent much of this weekend thinking, and have come to a conclusion: I cannot continue doing all that I do. As of today, I am no longer an independent contractor with the People's Protectorate.

This company I now head has great potential, and is my way into power, as corporations control all. My work with Hiram and the others provide a power base and a goodly amount of caps. My policing, though rewarding in its own way, was at its heart a dead-end job.

At least I get to keep my toys.

I saw Donnie after my meeting with the local comptroller, who scanned my retinas, took a DNA sample, closed out my accounts, and paid me my termination bonus. I informed him of my decision.

"What? What? No way. No. You can't do that."

I shook my head. "I, too, am sorry to be leaving this position, but my path now lies elsewhere." I typed into my assistant. "But I had a number of cases on which I was working, several of them nearly wrapped up. Please, take this information as a token of my appreciation for all you have done for me."

"We were so close to getting Frandsen!" He stared at me. "She's gotten to you, hasn't she?"

I shook my head. "I have been too busy at my new job."

As I was walking away, he shouted, "You know this isn't over! She'll hunt you down!"

"I thank you for the warning," I replied.
