Grey sat in a bus, reading a newspaper and waiting for a pick up. He looked out the window in delight. He does not always have reasons to go t town. But the day’s event may change that forever.
He reached for his phone and scrolled to the message menu. He had been invited for a job interview at IEE Services.
He smirked and stared at a picture on an advert, a week earlier, on the newspaper.
“IEE Services, a security firm seeks the service of a detail-oriented civilian to manage a high-end facility.”
Encouraged by the interests in Grey’s story from last week’s I am tempted to push it a little further. This is a developing story and I took the liberty to share its first two installments. Hope you have more questions than ever!
This is a contribution to the Household of Friday Fictioneers. It’s a joy to be among you folks. All comments are appreciated. Thanks to Rochelle Wisofffields for hosting us as usual.

Your story sounds compelling, but I didn’t get the photo prompt tie in. Is that the high-end facility?
The photo is the facility where Grey may have to work. We shall see how it turns out.
I’m guessing, too that the high-end facility is your reference to the prompt. This is fine with me…whatever the picture speaks is what we write. Nicely written. I’m intrigued.
Surely your guess is correct.
Not sure I understand but after last week’s, I’m intrigued and hope to follow his adventures.
Sounds like the right type of job… facility looks nice enough
Hehehe. We shall see…thanks for being here with me.
Had to look up IEE, so I learned something new. 🙂
Hehe. IEE is my little conspiracy though. It means In case of extreme exigency…I wonder what they do though. Hope you find was worth it?
A great base to take the story further. I think I’d rather stay there than work there!
Well, that’s for us to find out.
