lynnks 0 Posted November 15, 2006 Share Posted November 15, 2006 Alvielle held out the white vest while she sat in front of the mirror with her aide standing behind. She turned the vest inside out, upside down and examined it from all angles possible, as if to find any fault with it. A small frown formed between her brows, as she did not seem to find any. “Adrian, do I really have to wear this bulky thing to the parade again?” she asked her aide as she put the vest down on the dressing table and went to the coffee table to take a small cake. Adrian, with a file on his right hand, hung the vest over his spare arm and followed after Alvielle. “Yes Ma’am, you do know that during the parade, there’ll be too many chances for a trained sniper to shoot at you. This is only for safety precautions in the case that he does not aim at your head, but at your body instead,” Adrian said as a matter of factly as he held out the vest to Alvielle. “This was the slimmest vest we could make without compromising safety.” Alvielle, in the process of swallowing the cake almost choked while chuckling. “You would think, Adrian, that a forty eight year old would care about her size?” She took the vest a little reluctantly from Adrian and slipped it over her body. “It’s just going to be hot later, in the afternoon and having three layers of clothing does not help.” Adrian was a forty year old man who became the Chief Representative’s aide when she got elected. He went through a series of interviews and tests before he got selected to be Alvielle’s assistant. So he just smiled at nodded his head, “well ma’am, you would just have to bear with it for a few hours.” Though if Alvielle really did get shot at, many level of officers would have to be questioned as to how a sniper could have obtained a guy. The time passed slowly as Alvielle picked another pastry to eat and looked through a couple of documents that were on her desk. Adrian stood patiently while occasionally glancing at his watch. “Ma’am? It’s time to leave for the parade.” Alvielle closed the folder that she was looking at and stacked it neatly on top of another pile. She put on the blazer over the bulletproof vest and stepped out of the office. Once outside of the mansion, her personal guards immediately flanked her, with Adrian following closely behind. The limo that would be taking her to the parade was waiting right at the porch. One of the guards rushed his steps a little to open the door for the Chief Representative. Alvielle smiled at him before getting inside the car. Adrian meanwhile got to the other side of the limo and climbed in. The limo would be taking them to Sennett Circle, right in the town centre, where the parade would mostly go through. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
