IC The Fall of DELTA GREEN: Is Paris Burning?

Mr. Green simply, glacially, ignores the implied threats and menaces.

He takes the package carefully with his fingertips, and unwraps it. You notice that he's careful not to touch the brown pellets. For the first time, you notice that he wears a large, rather crude signet ring on his left ring finger, set with an oddly angled flat stone. Still careful not to touch the drugs with his bare skin, he holds the stone against one ball. For a moment, you could swear that you see a glint of some unknown colour flash in the depths of the stone.

Mr. Green rewraps the drugs as carefully as though he's handling an unexploded bomb. He turns to you stiffly, and despite the man's immense sang-froid, you could swear that the stiffness is an attempt to contain ferocious, desperate nervous energy. He looks at you as if he was already a dead man, gazing back at you from the far side of the Styx.

"I'll dispose of this," he tells you. "It shouldn't be left anywhere near a populated area, never mind in a junkie's stash. You: kill Theu."

"Sticks and stones won't do it, especially as we will need to eliminate his demon bodyguard. The level of destruction required to it right is likely to make you very unhappy.....

We could get the Union Corse to do it instead. They won't need much in the way of prodding, but effectiveness can't be guaranteed.

What deadline is there on this?"

Mr. Green's inflection is as cold and flat as ever. "Do it as soon as you can. Use the Corsicans if you have to, but make sure that no word of your involvement gets back to the Agency. And do your best to minimize collateral damage, but at the end of the day, Theu alive would leave far worse casualties than you are likely to. If all else fails, use a bomb: Paris has had plenty of those lately. Just make sure it gets him."

"We need to find Theu before we can kill him. Where can we find these tcho-tchos?"
Mr. Green eyes you as though he's wondering whether it's easier to kill you than educate you. "You seem to have made friends among the Corsicans. Try them. Just don't ask anyone at the Company."

He adds, with all the dry irony in the world in his voice, "Who do you think set him up in the first place?"

"Thanks. You're a big help." CALEB turns, puts his hands to his mouth and calls out, "Où sont les tcho-tchos? N'importe qui?"

Shaking his head he begins to walk away.

CYRILLE shrugs.

"Pas de probleme. We'll take care of it. And you take care of us when things get noisy."

CYRILLE scurries to catch up with CALEB, giving CLAUDE the all-clear signal.

"Well that went as well as can be expected. So let's get to work on Theu and his gang. Where they are, what their routines are, what logistics they have. We can call on the Unione, but maybe handling as much of this ourselves would be wiser.

I don't want to go toe to toe with these guys, especially now that they are expecting an attack. But I'm not really in favour of a bomb either, too hard to tell if you have been successful. Sniper rifle would be possible, but logistically challenging.

Suggestions?"

"If Carbone knew about Theu and whateverthefuck that thing was back there, then they must have been doing some sort of sureveillance on them for a while. I think we need to find out what Carbone really knows. Hell, for that matter, maybe put the thumbscrews to Burroughs. He seems to know a bit more than a simple beatnik..." CALEB doesn't have a direction. He is simply walking. A monologue begins to transpire in his head. What does Carbone really know though? If they had been watching Theu then he must have known what Theu really was. Why wait so long to try and dispatch Theu? Wouldn't the Corse have done that as soon as Theu, et al showed up? Fuck. Maybe rough up Burroughs for more information. He has to know something else.
