Vespian Emeralds–Chasing Secrets

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

Veronica Jackson and Rene Carlson are not your average 18 year olds. They didn't graduate from Harvard or Oxford. They graduated from the Academy of Agent Arts (AAA). They don't deal with internships at corporate offices. They intern at companies run by the League of Super Villain Organizations (LOSVO). You pull out a knife, and they pull out a gun. In short, Veronica and Rene are two highly trained agents living in the secluded Super Villain community, among ordinary 'mortals'. After successful internships, the two girls explore job opportunities and chance upon the Vespian Emeralds. Vespian Emeralds, a new super villain organisation headed by the sister duo of Jacqueline and Camilla Chase. What happens when the Chase sisters hire Veronica and Rene to be a part of the Vespian Emeralds and the four agents receive their first mission from the LOSVO Secretary? From conspiracies and murder attempts to impersonations, it does not prove to be easy.

1. The Employment of Super Villains

The street lights turned on and dusk was setting in. Just an hour ago it seemed like it was late morning, with the two girls just starting on the vast pile of business magazines and catalogues. The pursuit of employment opportunities sure could be exhausting.

Another magazine went down with no luck.

"I guess we really should have accepted the Craft brothers when they contacted us," she said from the middle of a huge pile of magazines.

"Come on, Rene! You know that we wanted to do internships first. Explore the agent's job a bit before rushing headfirst into some super-villain organisation, begging for jobs," Veronica replied, looking up from her computer screen. It was currently displaying the Home Page of the official Super Villain Agency website. "Good thing too. The Swedish organisation, The Vipers, sacked two people just last week for not knowing how to differentiate between an AK-47 and an M-16!"

"Yeah fine, maybe acing those internships at VictorEnd wasn't all that bad. But don't you think we're a bit behind in terms of employment?" Rene complained, reaching out for another blue and red magazine.

"You know, you really have a gift for making things sound worse than they really are." Veronica sighed, scrolling down the web page. "First of all, we're not...looking for employment!"

Rene rolled her eyes. "Of course. We're investing in our project of opening a hair salon?"

"We're just looking for a good organisation in which our skills will be put to use. A company where we can offer our services. And they're not the same thing!" Veronica added, seeing her friend ready to protest. "With our skill sets and multiple certifications, we could have gotten any job of our choice, months ago...if that was what we wanted!"

"Yeah, I know," Rene shrugged. "Not many people chose to go down the internships lane, and everyone we knew wanted to start a business of their own," she recalled, flipping through the magazine. "Anyway, found an interesting group yet where we can offer our services?"

"Well...Technos Incorp. seemed Interesting, except that they only accept agents with three years of experience on the field."

"How about Devil Leap? It's run by, uhh....," Rene trailed off, seeing who the managers of the company were.

"Carl Amaya, 65 years and Pauline Amaya, 69 years," she read in disbelief. The two girls were themselves no more than eighteen years of age, and the thought of the sixty-something Amayas brought back memories of strict aunts and forgetful uncles to Veronica. She winced.

"No offence to the respectable Amayas, but aren't we looking for an organisation that's, well, younger?" she asked with emphasis.

"Alright." Rene shook her head in amusement. "Back to hunting, I guess."

Suddenly, Veronica gasped and snapped her finger for her friend's attention.

"It just came up on the screen!" she whispered, gesturing to the laptop screen.

"I don't know what I clicked...it just appeared!" Veronica's eyes were wide open. Faltering for words, Rene threw her hands in the air.

"It's perfect," she said, a smile creeping up her face. "Was this there yesterday?"

"No! That's the odd bit,"Veronica mused. "I could have sworn this article wasn't on the website yesterday."

"Well, if they've put it up recently, they're probably still looking for agents," Rene stated. "In which case you'd better contact them right away, Ron."

"I suppose you're right. You know what, I'll send them a mail right now. With all our qualifications and everything. I'm sure they'll check it by tomorrow."

"Good luck with that," Rene remarked. "I'm getting us some tea. That employment scouting sure drained me out." Her voice faded away as she trudged into the kitchen. Rene and her tea, thought Veronica, shaking her head with a grin. None of Rene's African-American genes had done anything to stop her tea obsession.

Veronica focused on her screen. She framed the words carefully in her mind and finally hit the keys.

"Vespian Emeralds...," Veronica sighed, brushing back her dark brown hair. "Let's see what they have to offer."
