Chapter Seven: Travel
Kathy began to experience a degree of freedom she had never enjoyed before. She knew that it was entirely conditional, at all times her handlers wanted Kathy close to them, under strict observation.
The apparatus they built around her was an amazing thing to behold.
The National Security interests utilized a revolving network of spies to keep an eye on her. Every agent was linked by satellite, it gave them the ability to track her comings and goings in real time and from a distance which they felt was sufficiently safe from her prying mind.
Those agents whose mission it was to keep their eyes on her, they had no idea who she was.
They were junior agents who came and went so quickly from their assignment, that following Kathy was generally viewed as a basic training exercise. Nevertheless, every observation they made was pushed up into the cloud and correlated with the vast data base that her handlers were building to track everything she said and did.
Kathy felt her autonomy increasing.
Every little bit of space they gave her, she took.
The assignments she was given came less and less frequently. She could see the patterns in their behaviors toward her.
She knew that she was both indispensable, and matter of grave concern for the people at the top of the security apparatus.
In time, she even had some freedom to travel. When she did, she went to the places that her ancestors directed her to.
