    Ben smiled. "It is certainly a challenge at times, with so many people and such a large city, it requires constant fine tuning and lots of micromanaging by those under me to make sure all of the gears and cogs are constantly working. Add in private security by the different companies around and sometimes we run into issues." Ben was going to say more but there was a quick ding to signal for everyone's attention. "Well, we can always continue this later because it seems its time for the monthly meeting. It was nice meeting you again Kelly and I look forward to hearing what it is that you and Etmere have to say at the meeting." Ben said with a smile before walking off to go find some of his party members.

    Etmere watched him leave before turning his attention to the large podium that was on one wall with a man standing behind it. "Greetings everyone and welcome to the sixty-fourth founders annual meeting. Tonight will be a more exciting than usual meeting as we have a special guest. He's from a city far to the south and he brings the gift of knowledge with him. Somehow, one of our founders managed to snag him for their company already, however, with the permission of the CEO of that company, we were given permission to ask him a couple of questions about the work he did back in his city. Before we get to that exciting event, let's go over the normal stuff and save what will certainly be the best part of the meeting for last."

    Kelly smiled and nodded a goodbye to Ben as he left them to be. She looked up to Etmere almost as if wanting approval for how she had spoken to him, some small smile or other small sign of validation that she wasn't acting like a complete moron. His attention was elsewhere though. She could imagine why. He was used to these sorts of gatherings. He had probably helped organize a few back home. It would be different to have them in another place. When the man at the podium started speaking, Kelly quickly turned her attention that way with a neutral look on her face.

    The welcome was intriguing for sure. It made even more sense why Etmere might seem distracted at the moment. He was about to get up in front of a large group of people and share secrets only known to his own society. He had been hesitant at best to share anything with her. Why would he have agreed to speak out at something so large?

    The man at the front continued with reports abut different sectors of the city, calling up CEOs and other high up people to speak on behalf of what seemed like every possible department of the city: agriculture, waste treatment, military, research, and recreation were only a few. There were only a few pieces that Kelly truly cared about. Research, of course, was one of them. It was good to know from what was being shared that their company had been the only one so far to discover a child marked subject. Of course, not even her own company was willing to share that information yet.

    While waste treatment was enlightening the crowd on its groundbreaking sewage treatment technique, Kelly leaned over to Etmere. "So, why did you say I would have to speak?" she asked him curiously. Her voice was quiet, low enough to not be overheard as more than a mere hum.
    Love, Peace, and Happiness!!!

    He smiled at her question as he leaned his lips to her ears to whisper into them. "You are the women who managed to snag something incredibly rare are you not. A man with a huge amount of knowledge in his brain that could easily push any of the companies in the city forward in power. Weapons for the police, infrastructure for construction, science for research. Of course, they don't know what we both know." He said with a smile before kissing the side of her head when his name finally got called.

    He went up the podium and quickly cleared his throat. "Hello everyone, it is so nice to be welcomed here and to meet all of you. I want to clear some things up first. I came to this city to scout out how the other survivors of our world are doing against the marked." He knew that Kelly would know what he was saying was a lie since he told her something different, but he knew that beside his contact, everyone here would be hearing what he had to say for the first time and would not think he was lying about anything.

    "While I do plan on sharing some of my technology from my people, and the advanced knowledge that my people have of the marked I plan on only sharing it with the person who is my girlfriend in your beautiful city here. She is the reason I decided to share some of my knowledge. Mainly, she is the one who has convinced me that my time here should be best spent helping you. With that, I decided to share the fact that out of everything my people have done studies on and improved the thing we have done way better than the rest is the study of marked people. Those that are old adults, those that are young adults, and those that are children."

    Out of everything he could give away, he figured the best one to give away was the fact that there were children who carried marks. He had already let it slip to Kelly and figured that the best way to give all these people information was to give the same information he had already given Kelly. Judging by the surprised looks on everyone's faces he knew that he had already stolen all of their attention.

    "I see that I have all of your attention. I am glad. Let it be known who I work for since you already all know who that is. Currently, I am doing research work with them on marked subjects, something that we all know already. So if you're ever interested to know how I am doing and how my work is assisting all of you, you know where to find me. Now, I would like to invite Kelly up here. To talk about the important work she has been doing in hope that you will get a better understanding of the woman who has managed to convince me to share my cities information back with you." He said with a smile at Kelly as he invited her up to the podium now as someone handed him to glasses of champagne.

    Kelly listened to his speech and was honestly disappointed that he hadn't been willing to give away more information than he had already told her. Maybe after tonight he would be more willing to share some things with her now that he was more in the open than he had been before. Of course, he had to have strategically planned this to try and move up without having to do the work to get there. In all fairness he was hired for a position greatly under the speciality that he was capable of. If she were willing to be honest, she would have to admit that he should probably stationed ahead of her.

    That was when he said that she was going to come up and talk to them all. Even though he had warned her about the possibility of her speaking in front of the large group gathered here, she couldn't hide her initial shock at him actually calling her up to talk. Thankfully, she was composed by the time anyone that knew her looked in her direction. With a small smile on her face, one that easily showed that she thought he shouldn't have done such a silly thing, she walked up and took one of the glasses of champagne from Etmere. Time to show those gathered what she knew. Within reason of course.

    Turning towards the great gathering, she smiled and nodded to them all. "Good evening," she said strongly into the microphone. The buzzing of curiosity stopped as she started speaking. She hadn't heard it while she was approaching the podium but now that she was there and talking it was clear that some sound had indeed followed his announcement. "As Etmere kindly introduced, my name is Kelly Small. I am a scientist at Hamstein Laboratories studying the marked community and trying to unravel their secrets," she began. "I wish that I could reveal secrets to you tonight that I've learned over my years there but sadly, there is a confidentiality that I am bound to keep. All the great discoveries that our company has made have been published and is always public knowledge. We are constantly finding new ways to help us understand them better and find ways to detain them before they become a danger to us or themselves. With this new found assistance," she said before turning slightly and acknowledging Etmere who had thankfully stayed on stage, "this process should become quicker for us, allowing us to find more and do greater things with this knowledge. There is not a person in this room who has not made our community stronger and better prepared to protect us from the marked. I am grateful to find myself in your presence tonight. Thank you," she finished. She raised her glass and gave them a final nod, as if she had done this a hundred times over.

    If there was one thing that Kelly always prided herself on being, it was prepared. Even without being completely put together for this speech, she had easily muddled her way through. She turned back to Etmere and walked arm in arm with him back to where they had been standing before. "I didn't think you were serious when you said I would be speaking. It wasn't necessary," she said to him in a half teasing, half chastising tone.
    Love, Peace, and Happiness!!!

    He smiled at her as his attention turned to her before he leaned down to whisper into her ear. "What better way to gain the notice of someone higher up than to have you talking in front of them. Especially when you have someone like me as a trophy. Besides, I had faith that someone as amazing and lovely as you would be able to wow the crowd and you certainly did." He started to pull her away from the crowd as the meeting kept going on to discuss some new things that different members thought of.

    He pulled her over to a table filled with food and drinks as he continued to talk to her. "What can I say though, a beautiful lady such as yourself, you deserved a moment to be in the light where everyone could see what a successful person you are." He said with a smile as he continued to stand with her, watching her now and giving her his full attention. "I told you that I wanted to take you out for a night to remember, a date to make up for not being able to see you. This is the kind of life I grew up in. Large meetings, party, wine everywhere, expensive food, important people. The high life as some people would say. Yet the rich life can't always bring everything that one is looking for." He said with a smile. He was lying since he had never lived the rich life, but he had seen how it affected targets he was watching and hunting. They always seemed unhappy, like they were missing their purpose in life, something he never lacked.
