Captain’s Holiday

Nita called the staff into her office for the morning meeting; it was brief, her vacation was supposed to have started the day before, however a few assignments requiring her confirmation weren’t finished until mere hours before she walked through the doors and she was so pressed for time that she would have to wait until she returned to take care of the employees responsible. She gave a rundown of assignments for the next week-plus, delegated all authority to her Second, and departed the office briskly, while maintaining an air of professionalism. It had been so long since she had time off Nita couldn’t even remember when she had the time to think about her last vacation, but those concerns dissolved as she reclined aboard her jet, sipping a cocktail, looking forward to The Hunt.

    Nita is fiery and brilliant and I am ready to go on The Hunt to figure this all out.
