  •  The news that the chamber under attack had gone viral - Tension filled every corner of the firm. The sudden realization of the impact the reopened Crescent case could have on the firm forced almost everyone to think about their future with regards to the firm. Worst of the entire news that broke out was the rumored involvement of Mark in a shady deal that was linked to the last time the Crescent case ran, all these didn't make things easier on the climaxing fears of young staffs who were concerned about their opportunity in future labor markets if the firm lost this huge case. Things were looking uglier.

    "The Boss needs you now," Agnes used those words to welcome Andrew, they've been searching for him all morning. "I had a rough night," He cried out to his defense, before heading for the conference room as Agnes directed him.

    ***

    Andrew entered, and openly apologized to one no in particular for his late arrival, he always did like to make an impression when necessary. He caught Patrick with the corner of his eye, and wondered aloud why a suspended staff was in the conference room.

    "They firm's been summoned to court," Mark spoke. Andrew took his seat; things were more important than he'd been playing them since he arrived. Mark took center stage to intimate all present about the implications of the impending doom if they didn't avert it. He announced that the preliminary hearing had been scheduled for the coming Tuesday, everyone wondered why that soon, it didn't give them enough time to prepare. Patrick asked if they had anything incriminating on them, all eyes turned to Make because of the recent rumors making the rounds.

    Mark looked back at all their faces in silence, the question though unexpected was still easy to answer, nonetheless he remained quiet. Every man looked at his neighbor with a corner of an eye and kept the other fixated on Mark's lips lest it started to move. Mark finally spoke when he realized how much damage not speaking was going to do to his brand.

    "I want to say here and now that I wasn't involved in any discrepancies as many of you might be suggesting. Anything you heard is aimed at discrediting me," Mark rose to his own defense, his hands shook in anxiety, his heart raced, all he wanted was for the meeting to be over already.

    "Mr. CEO Sir, I heard that the dreaded new comer, Mr. Huey, is the one representing the opposing team, and he seems all out for your blood from what I've heard. If there's something we need to know, now is the time to spill," Mr. Dimeji said to Mark, consciously looking down to avoid any form of his wrath. Mark refuses to answer him and adjourned the meeting.

     *** Next Tuesday, after The court appearance ***

    All attempts to make the presiding judge drop the case and stop its move for a retrial proved abortive, Mr. Huey performed far above their expectations - he was a true monster on the leash, and all he wanted was their blood, or Mark's own, no one knew his desires in particular.

    Andrew couldn't take it any longer, he wasn't one to be associated with failure, and now, his name was stamped on a case headed to the drain full of lost cases souls. He needed to clear his head, hence his need to visit The Bar.

    "They told me I'd find you here," A voice came from behind Andrew directed at him. He swiftly turned to behold his intruder. He didn't have a surprised look on his face because he recognized his intruder.

    "You." That was all Andrew said to the male figure before him. He gave him the look that read "keep talking."

    The man spoke eloquently. For the better part of his narration, all a quasi-drunk Andrew could make out was the continuously repeated line of taking down Mr. Akin.

    "You want Chief Dr. Barr. Akin. Right?" Andrew finally asked him.

    "Yes I do. Help me get him, and I'll give you what you want most at the moment. You know where to find me." The man dropped his card and took his leave.
