Welsh stared at his phone, dumbstruck. Firefly? FIREFLY?!
That plan called for the firebombing of the Ministry of Defense. It was a war plan contingency should Paranormal ever get off their asses and declare war on the wizarding world. What was Green thinking?
"...not my business," Welsh reminded himself. He checked his watch. Three thirty in the damned morning. He needed to hustle. When Firefly had first been discussed, Welsh had been given ten small glassy looking stones and told to hide them in the building in secured areas with no surveillance that would cause massive damage. Activating them required him going to each stone and pressing a carved mark on it. Once all were activated, it began a thirty minute countdown, then...boom. He'd have to go to all ten, avoid surveillance, activate them, and get himself out. No problem, right? He'd renegotiate the terms of his service after this, for sure.
Welsh downloaded all the secured files stored on his computer to a thumb drive. Then, he mirrored the network access so that the Defense department's network could be accessed remotely from the drive, wiped his computer, and left. It was an odd feeling to walk away like this, but there was freedom in it. He trusted Mr. Green and his organization to care for him once this act was done. Besides the activation, he had one last thing to do.
[Firefly is five by five, t-1:25:00]
An hour to set the runes, thirty minute timer, explosion. He cut five minutes off the expected time as a buffer. He'd not likely take the full plannned hour to set everything since the plan originally called for detonation during high volume times. This early in the morning? Fifty five minutes was a generous amount of time.
Welsh moved quickly, King's man through and through.
Fifty minutes later, he sent a follow up text.
[Leaf on the wind; I have a house warming present for you in the usual place. ]
Five minutes later, he was in his car and driving to the drop spot where he left information for Mr. Green when it couldn't be emailed.
