You knew when Kris asked for a desk job that it wasn't going to be pretty. Well, here's the bad, the worst and the ugly. Budgets! This short story started out as the opening chapters to Kris Longknife - Emissary. But hey, we all know how bad an office job is. Who wants to start off an action adventure yarn with just another day at the office. So, I cut it. But, I know there are some of you out there who must have wondered if a bad Longknife day at the office was as bad as yours. Who wondered what Kris had bveen doing for the last (mumble, mumble) years. So, here it is. Enjoy, you masochists.
