Tommy nervously sat in his office, straightening the file folders on his desk for the eighth time as he watched the clock slowly move closer to 11:30. It was only 10am now.

He'd made sure to get to the office on time so that he could swing by security to greet the new guard. When they'd shaken hands in greeting Tommy had passed Digg the card that would get Felicity in the restricted elevator as well as into the server room. When they shook goodbye, Digg had slipped him a comm, which he immediately placed in his ear.

Oliver was supposed to drop Felicity off at Big Belly Burger to pick up the delivery outfit and to borrow their car used for deliveries.

Tommy had mostly tuned out their chatter as they prepared to leave the lair. With all of them out in the field today, they were going to have to use the mute buttons on the actual devices if they didn't want anyone to hear what they were saying. If they remembered to do so.

Tommy jolted in his seat when he heard Felicity screech, "What is that?"

"It's my bike," Oliver answered. "You've seen my bike before."
