“Nathan, I heard you missed your lunch companion, Adam,” Head of Security for Mars Base, Liggett asked the warehouse man, Tolly.
“Well we weren’t buddies, but I spoke to him once or twice. He seemed like a nice fellow and somebody said he was transferred. I hope it was a promotion.”
“No, we went through the recordings and we found you never sat at the same table with Adam. Not once, and twice is simply not credible.”
“Maybe we are talking about different people?” Nathan asked. “Adam is the name I remember. We never talked enough that I knew where he worked or anything.”
“Come along,” Liggett said. “We’ll put you under the cap and help you remember,” he offered. With the two big security guys behind him it wasn’t an offer he could really refuse.
