Ted: Answering the Call

The phone rang at 11:37, a bit later than he expected. He had always thought it would come at dawn. For thirteen years he had been in this house, never leaving that dedicated phone line. The line that couldn't be tapped, or traced, or reached by a wrong number.

He spent his days training, perfecting his skill and his mind, working 14 hours a day to perform this one all important task.

Everything was delivered to him that he would need, except mail, which went to the Office to be handled by accountants, cryptologists, and psychiatrists.

"Go code Alpha, Dedicated."
