    Summary

    At his desk, Jon closes his eyes. He waves a vague hand in the man’s direction. “This is Michael-uh, Mike Crew,” he mumbles. “Ex Altiora, Lichtenberg scars, tosses people off skyscrapers.”

    “Oh," Martin says. Recognition strikes a moment later. Like lightning, he thinks, and immediately feels tactless. "Oh. I see.”

    “I wish you wouldn’t,” Mike Crew says pleasantly. “I really just want to be left alone. It’s what I’m trying to communicate here, but it seems to go in one ear and out the other.” Again, Martin feels that awful swooping in his stomach, as if the floor is lurching away under his feet.

    Summary

    I hope you find your new role as Head of the Institute as rewarding as captaining the Tundra, wrote Elias Bouchard, to Peter Lukas. There are so many people working there: all with their own interesting lives, and all desiring your attention and support. I'm sure you will relish the challenge it will bring and enjoy every moment spent with the fine men and women of the Institute. In time I'm confident they'll become like a family to you.

    The Magnus Institute has a new boss.
    The Magnus Institute also has a new tech support technician.
    These two facts are unrelated, except they both happen at the same time.

    Meanwhile Jon's woken up from being dead for six months and for once he's trying his best. He just wishes Martin would stop avoiding him and answer his messages...

    Summary

    Klaus flicked through a few pages without reading them, shut the book, craned his neck to look back at Ben, and mouthed, does he sleep here?

    Ben shrugged helplessly. “You could ask, but….”

    But Five wouldn’t answer, Klaus knew. Not yet. Convincing Five to open up took finesse. For starters, Klaus had to get him talking again, so he tossed out the first question that came to mind – “Hey, did you and Dolores break up or something?”

    “Abort mission,” Ben deadpanned.
