“Myasi, are you done yet?”
The question, out of the blue and resonating into her skull from her earpiece, set her heart pounding so hard within her chest that her wrist monitor bleeped in warning. Damn it! Couldn’t they trust her to do her job without firing sudden demands at her?
She forced her voice out in a calm strand. “Laying the last charge now, boss.”
A sound grated in her ear, but she smiled. Tyet hated her using that term of reference. A small but pleasing payback for almost startling her into cardiac arrest.As she’d already promised she was doing so, she took the device from her waistband, activated it so that tiny emerald lights gleamed through the murk and set it into the mud beneath her artificially webbed feet.
