The doors slid opened, we walked in and then the button for fifth floor was pressed. The doors closed back up as our ascension took place from one floor to the next and on getting to the third floor the elevator stopped for the first time since entering then a lady with her daughter, some inches shorter than I was, entered and turned their backs to us. 

The lady pressed the button for the seventh floor which was the last floor of the building then she turned and both her and Brian exchanged pleasantries while I tried avoiding any form of contact with the little girl, who on the other hand was constantly staring at me all the way till the doors opened again on the fifth floor and Brian and I stepped out. I was so happy to get out of there.


After covertly rushing out of the elevator I stood quietly for a minute the moment I got to see the fifth floor and in all honesty it wasn't what I had imagined it to have been like when I made the jump back. It was mundane and ordinarily simple, with just a bunch of desks, paperwork and workers. 

'They must have really gone through many changes in my time thanks to mine and other's help' 

The elevator door closing behind me and making a dinging noise snapped me out from my thoughts when I saw that Brian had already stepped ahead of me and after walking up to join him again Brian introduced me to the rest of the workforce and the daughters of some who had families as his lovely daughter, Amanda.




Brian had his own office as the managing director of the logistics department by the left side of the room but besides that nothing else in the room deserved a second look. It still surprised me at how the GHA was able to replace WHO while looking like this. Connections really matters a lot in this world and how they managed to privatize a global body just flew above my head. 

Although, I have to give them mercy that the GHA building is recently built after the founder successfully took the mantle as the overseer of the territory's health and safety and also their old company building wasn't structured for this type of work and since the company is doing very well in it's area there was really no need to change it to serve as the GHA. But still, they could have made things a lot better like how the bottom floor with Divia looked so cool.



We entered into Brian's office and sat down with Brian behind his desk and me at the other side just like how it was in the principal's office. After seeing that I was comfortable in the seat, Brian gave me my share of the hotdogs which was a single box of one hotdog then we both ate and threw the napkins and boxes in the wastebin beside the desk. He helped me to waste mine.

After waiting two minutes for the food to digest Brian went back to work as usual and started to fill out some documents left on the desk while I waited for the supposed "BRING YOUR DAUGHTER TO WORK DAY" to start but it looked like this was going to be it, first the hotdogs then next me spending the rest of my day looking over at a strange guy.


'Shit! This is such a waste of time, but those hotdogs were nice though'




An hour and a half had passed and Brian was still at it arranging documents and with me having nothing else to do but watch I decided to do some information surfing with my eyes as I began to move my head around and then by chance I looked over at one of the documents Brian had on his desk and it wrote on top UNIFICATION OF TREATMENT FACILITIES— BLE BY DOT LOG CHIPS

"Hmm?" I grunted while also tilting my head and scrunching my eyebrows 

"I know you're bored but rightfully speaking you're supposed to be in school as I arrange all these stuff, not really my fault" Brian said and then smiled with eyes still planted on his work.

"That's not it" I replied

"What is it then?" He asked flipping to the next page of his documents

"This document over here" I tapped on the header then separated the said document and pulled it out 

"What does it mean?" My inability to see the complete heading had restricted my understanding of the subject before I asked the question.

He dropped his pen then took a pause from his work to look at the file I had in my hand 

"Ooh that file, it's something that you wouldn't be able to understand" he smiled.

"Common, since I have nothing else to do we can as well just talk about your work and pass the time, for starters we can go with this" I flailed the document in front of his face 

"Alright madam, alright" he transitioned from a smile to a chuckle and I could see that the tension from being chased from school and the kid outside had completely left him


With the full heading of the document being displayed I could already tell what the gist of it was but since I had already asked before I saw the full name I had to now complete the process.

Brian continued "Once i'm done checking it out and the Government approves it all hospitals in the United States are going to give easy access to people with the Dot Log Chip implants since their chips would have already recorded more than half of what is wrong with them before they even get to the hospital and therefore make the work of the doctors easier. No need for long waits to get a meeting with a doctor and something like that"


Brian gritted his teeth consciously

"Sorry I got carried away, was that too much for you to understand?"

"Oh, not at all. I understood perfectly well and it is nice actually" I gave a fake smile which prompted Brian to continue

"We are doing great work here Amanda, just imagine... blah blah blah"

At this point I stopped paying attention to what Brian was saying. I was too pre-occupied with my own thoughts at the moment

'So my suspicions were spot on and that's how they started gaining clout with the Logs. First they brought the notion to easy medicare with it then for those still stubborn to get implants when the Pyrex 9 broke out they were treated like second class citizens to those who had the Logs making more people to want the logs and the benefits they brought... Very smart'




Another hour passed with me and Brian both sitting in silence while a monochrome type of clock on the desk continued to count the time.

'Looks like my coming here was a burst huh!? Fuck! I should have just returned when I failed entering into Brian's body but we know what other consequence that would have caused' I thought.

"Sorry about not giving you attention on our special day Amanda but now I'm done, so let's get it on" He smiled as he closed the final document with a bang of his hands on the table.

Just as he was getting ready with arranging the documents and keeping everything back in place the landline rang with a message from his assistant *RING*

"Yes Eunice?" he answered.

"Sorry sir but I was just told to inform you that there is an emergency meeting scheduled for 1 pm today and you are required to be in attendance" said Eunice on the other side of the line.


'What's going on?' My eyes fidget in anxiety.

"Yes sir. I suggest that you start getting ready" She insisted.

"An emergency meeting, does that mean that he'll be there as well?" Brian's eyes lit up a bit

"No, unfortunately not Sir" said Eunice and just as quickly as Brian got excited so did his Glee go down the drain. 

"Alright, I'll get ready... Come to my office, there's something I want you to do for me before I head to the meeting" 

The call finally ended and feeling guilty about having to leave Brian looked over to me with puppy dog eyes "I'm so sorry, I just got a meeting meant for next week moved up to this afternoon by 1 pm and I have to get things ready fast"

"1 pm?" My expression changed and I got a boost of energy. Slouching on the chair earlier I sat upright and looked at the time on the monochrome type clock in front of me and it read [12:31 pm]

"It's almost 1 pm Bri— umm I mean dad"  I said and he took a look at his wrist watch to confirm.

With little time to spare he rushed, found, prepared and arranged the needed documents for the meeting and fifteen minutes since the call with his assistant ended the doors opened. It was his Eunice coming in to remind him of the meeting scheduled for one 1 pm in case he hadn't been serious with it over the phone and also to help him prepare if he wasn't ready yet.

This was my chance, the opportunity I had been looking for since I got here and now everything was lining up for me to carry out my plans. I almost couldn't contain my joy.

"Amanda, i'm going to go to my meeting now but I'll be back soon, wait for me here and if you need anything Eunice will be right outside to take care of anything you need, Okay?"

"Okay!" i replied enthusiastically and this time it was all me. Amanda's emotions weren't coming through to make me giddy 


Brian went out with his assistant and seconds later poked his head into the office through the door saying "Since our bring your daughter to work day has been cancelled I'll find a way to make it up to you, I promise. Alright bye!" 


The door was closed. Left all alone, I rushed out of my seat and locked the door behind them before I began to contemplate on how I was going to get my hands on the GHA Dot Logs Black Box program from five stories up while it was in the sub level AKA the underground basement floor. 

I needed a plan and I needed one quick and not just any plan, I needed a plan that accommodated my current dilemma, being in a grade schooler's body trying to sneak into a highly secured room, d******d codes and then return back without being caught.

I didn't want to do anything that would change the current time stream I was in too much and just jumping into the wrong body had already made its own butterfly effects that I haven't calculated for yet.




Unlike my previous plan which solely focused on needing Brian's body to work in the case of just strolling into the room, using my ID card and biometrics to unlock all closed doors and using my authority figure as deterrent for any suspicious eyes that could come my way, but now I had to do a lot of sneaking around and bypassing in order to succeed.

For the plan to succeed, I needed really suphisticated equipments to handle some aspects of the bypassing. But since I didn't have any of those, I had to look for easily assessible materials that could give me the same results. 

For that, I looked around the office for said materials.
