Ghost In The Shell
A traveler, Lord Victor, has arrived at his mansion in the City. He has spent
the last few months on a journey to the Furthest Islands, and now came
to the City to boast of his adventures and acquisitions. And of his daughters,
too. The Lord wishes to marry his eldest, Hannah, to a wealthy nobleman. News have already spread about a precious artifact the Lord has brought from his overseas journey. Tomorrow, a ceremonial exhibition of showpieces brought by the Lord is going to be held at his mansion. Or rather, was going, as I intend to make the host change his plans.
Tonight, the Lord is attending a ball, together with his daughters. That leaves
the mansion with only servants and guards inside. After nightfall, I'm going to
have a private tour of the exhibition.
The mansion is well-guarded, but every security system is bound to have a weak link. Most often, it is the human element. An acquaintance of mine, Honest Timmy, works in the mansion as a servant. Honest only as far as the name goes, he has agreed to help me to prepare the break-in. We met recently, and it turned out that my sidekick is very useful. He's managed to steal the plan of the ground floor from the library. It will be of great help when I go "sightseeing".
Timmy has also warned me of a new security system installed in the exhibition hall. Still, he has no idea how and where it can be disarmed. But, he promised to try to find out. Moreover, he's told me of a safe, supposedly hidden within the mansion, containing more valuables. I'm going to check it out.
The boy has also opened me a way inside the mansion - by unscrewing a manhole into the City's sewers. This is how I'll breach the mansion's outer wall. Good job, Timmy. We were scheduled to meet again just before my break-in. Timmy was supposed to provide me with additional information on where the new guards are stationed, and collect his payment. Unfortunately, he didn't show up. It's suspicious and I fear that something might have gone wrong. Despite that, I'm not going to give up the job. I'll just keep more alert and cautious than usual. Once more, this night will be mine.
