"Well, whatever you were planning to do. You'd better do it, because they're close."
“Don’t look at me, I didn’t invite them.”
Joseph chuckled at the reactions, "Two things to bear in mind folks, first, this is VILE; we're above fearing cops or treating them as 'hostiles' here."

Joseph paused to shut the door and step out of the way as a modified Roomba came over to clean the floor.

"Second, this is Stone Harbour; the only reason the police ever show up here is to escort a certain wealthy theater patron of ours."

At that moment, Tara buzzed into Joseph's earbud to let him know his assumptions were correct.

Seeing the tired expressions before him, Joseph yawned dramatically, "Now how about we all try to catch some shut eye and continue this at a more decent hour?"

While some shut-eye would certainly be welcome, there were more pressing matters at hand. "Forgive me," Claire said in reply to Joseph's statement about the safety and security of the VILE sanctuary. "I am still new here." She reached into her coat, and produced a test tube that was nearly empty save for a few white particles near the bottom. She extended her hand, and asked, "Can you reproduce this?"

"I'm not entirely sure," Claire admitted. "All I know is someone went to a great deal of trouble to plant it within the canvas of a John William Godward that was just sold at auction. It nearly made it past customs. I would have missed it myself, if I had not examined the piece before the auction and found the lining intact at the time. Most of it was confiscated, but I managed to get this much."

Her teeth were beginning to chatter. She clenched her jaw to silence them until she could regain control over her body's protests, and then continued her tale. "The asset has been confiscated, the buyer is furious, and I don't get my payout until I deliver. Whatever this substance is, someone valued getting it out of the country more than getting away with a two hundred thousand pound painting. I want to know why."

Joseph frowned over the implications of Claire's story.
"Miss Yeon, I believe that between Acton and myself, we should be able to confirm the identity of this 'substance'. However," his tone turned grave, "if my suspicions are proven correct, I regret to inform you that not only will VILE not be helping you reproduce this substance, but you will be in need of a very, very good lawyer."

Claire suddenly wasn't so sure it was the cold making her shiver after all, but she stood her ground. "If that is the case, then I believe it is all the more important we know what we are dealing with."

"We will, I assure you. In the meantime, perhaps you could give us your buyer's name? Given the circumstances, I think it prudent for us to look into him a little more as well."

Claire retrieved a small business card case from the inner pocket of her jacket. A few drops of water clung to the brushed gold exterior, but the contents had escaped damage. She pulled the first card out of the case and held it out to Joseph. "Xavier Hayes, CFO of Therien Microsystems. It was a public auction, and he registered with his real name, so he may be nothing more than a scapegoat. We have not officially met, but I trust the man who referred him."

"Thank you, we will look a little more in Mr Hayes; I suggest you get a little rest in the meantime. Perhaps you will be agreeable to reconvene over a nice brunch? The lab results should be out by then."
