† Following up our top story from last evening. The tragic suicide of forty three year old Collin McDermott has taken on another sad twist.

Police have now confirmed the Director of Marketing for the Aegis Corporation did in fact leave some sort of "note" prior to his Death.

In a recently released statement it appears Mr. McDermott took a half gallon can of red paint and brush to the roof of the Aegis Corporations Main Headquarters. This was captured on the buildings Security cameras but the video has not been released to the public.

The statement indicates that Mr. McDermott painted the word DEADLINE on the roof of the building prior to his tragic leap to his death.

It was Monday, it was just like any other day except Ephraim Salt knew he would waste time with the liars and twisted individuals he spent his week assisting. His Social Worker and Supervisors explained to him that Human interaction was part of his daily life. Try as he might, Ephraim just didn't "get it."

  First issue of the day. New vending machines filled with beverages designed to enhance daily performance and keep an individual on their toes. Energy Drinks. Ephraim decided it would be best if he traced all the new serial numbers and purchase orders for these. He also decided it may be useful to try one of these drinks. That didn't work out too well later on.

His first purchase order of the day was for Nancy in accounting. Computer issue. That's his job. Turned out it was something so simple as a worn out mouse. He checked his records and noted this was the third time he had replaced this in the last six weeks. Nancy has been a busy beaver lately. While he waited politely for her to complete the required forms and satisfaction summary Ephraim overheard Julius Baines discussing his most recent Fantasy Football maneuvers. He cannot help Himself and half way though listening to Julius spew garbage from his trashcan mouth Ephraim is forced to interrupt him.

  "You're lying again Julius. The information you present is both inaccurate and misconceived, your data has no bearing on the supposed outcome of events and the running back you mention is not even worth a third round pick for next year based off previous historical numbers. It is more likely you were taken advantage of and are looking to make yourself seem smarter than what your IQ actually represents."

And at the end of the first quarter our score today is.........

Human Interaction 7 Ephraim Salt 0

That afternoon Ephraim had his obligatory meeting with the company psychologist, Ms. Ingrid Lok. Not because of Ephraims previuos childhood history but it was requested of every employee since the suicide of Collin McDermott. The Aeigis Corporation felt it was the right thing to do.

† To say the meeting was making Ephraim uncomfortable would be an understatement. He spent a half hour practicing in the mirror prior to the meeting. He tried his best to perfect that comfortable smile of his.

† Ms. Lok's office was comfortable and the conversation went fairly well though I must admit it veered away a bit from the subject. Credit Ingrid Lok for not flinching each time Ephraim flashed that practiced and ever so creepy smile. She should get a raise just for that one.

† Late in the evening as Ephraim walked back to his low end apartment he noticed a large man standing directly under a streetlight across from his building. The gentlemen was well dressed with his head topped in a bowler hat. He nodded to Mr. Salt, explained to him that Ephraim was a nuisance and proceeded to transform into a huge bear. That was bad enough except you could also see the outline of the man super imposed under the bear.

†† Ephraim should not have been taken lightly. His un orthodox fighting style got the best of Bear. It was like fighting a spider the way Ephraim held his hands out and slapped in off balance ways. Each of Ephraims ungainly strikes caused a terrible amount of damage and the Bear finally fell forward while attempting to flee.

† The sirens could be heard and Ephraim took off to the top of his building for a better view. He followed the ambulance to the Hospital and went straight to the bathroom to get changed into his "Super Suit"

† When The Public Eye emerged wearing his Eye Mask with long eye lashes, Dread like hair, a Poncho and Chuck Norris action slacks it was truly a sight to behold!!!

† When The Public Eye approached the nurses station to ask about the individual recently brought in the head nurse hit the security button under her desk. Ephraim didn't see that one.

"Uh, He is gone. Got up and left. Would it be possible Sir that you could do the same? Please?"

Two years have gone by and in the spring of 2019 Ephraim is asked to join a work force who will spend a month on computer enhancements to the Agencies Hero Group known as The Guard. The Guards system known as GHOST is a highly advanced AI developed by SPARTA scientists and programmers. GHOST is fully aware and may appear at the Guards Headquarters known as the Center. GHOST will form via hidden projectors in the facility and take a simple visage of a Butler.

† Ephraim easily takes lead while appearing not to. After all, you either don't like Mr. Salt or you simply don't notice him. Surprisingly enough two members of the Guard do seem to take notice of Ephraim. The first being Kei, Leader of the group. It is assumed Kei speaks to him simply due to similar intellects and an interest in the progress of the upgrades and tests.

† The other member is the Worg. For some reason The Red Hoods "Pet" seems to take a shine to Ephraim. Most humans find its presence terrifying. It did not bother Ephraim† unless the beast impeded his progress in the task at hand.

† The rest of the members of the Guard simply ignored him except for The Brute who seemed very uncomfortable around Mr. Salt. Having a nine foot behemoth call you "Creepy" and shiver as you stride by may not make most people feel at ease. Ephraim Salt couldn't care less.

Eye donít enjoy being called creepy. Creepy is what Eye am. Eye have, with adult hands, come to terms with the adjective.

  There were a total of six programmers involved in the GHOST upgrades. Four men and two women. You all stayed in the guest rooms on the upper level of The Center and at no time were any allowed to the lower bunkers that housed the mainframe without escort. During non working, eating or rest hours the programmers spent a lot of time playing virtual reality games and other things  in the recreation rooms on the main floor. The VR games are all the rage nowadays it seems.
