The Imperative U-turn

Chapter 12

At the end of the emergency meeting concerning the embassy’s preparations to the introduction meeting between the ambassador and the US next president, the ambassador asked the press attache’ to stay on.

I’d like to have a few words with Ivan.’

Very well sir,’ the press attache’ answered him, while watching the last of the meeting participents leave the ambassador’s office.

Last night the ambassador sent a codded message to center, and the short and negative answer, which worried him while he read it was an insult in fact. “This certain operation that needed the embassy’s help at its beginning, is being run independently from now on. And we’ve no itention to involve our embassy in the United States in its developments, if anything will go wrong God forbid we won’t be involved; but nevertheless they might summon me to answer a few questions at the State Department... But the ambassador could not believe that his press attache’ was cut off too. Thus the solution to his problem was rather simple.

Listen Ivan you’re flying home tomorrow night for a couple of weeks’ leave...’

But sir though I’m under your straight command I’m supposed to accomplish several confidential errands by center direct orders.’ The astounded press attache’ barged into his superior’s last sentence.

Yes I know it Ivan up to the last detail, I’d a long codded dialogue with center yesterday night and that’s what I was asked to do.’ The ambassador answered him with a benevolent smile and handed him a one way ticket to Moscow airport.

The shocked press attache’ took the ticket with a shacking hand and a pale face, and muttered his thanks hardly audibly.

Soon after he left the office the ambassador uttered a sigh of relief. I hope center will send me a much better agent, than this coceited good for nothing b*****d. He concluded with a series of coughs, and called his secretary to order him, to send a crew of the embassy members to check the press attache’ whereabouts and to see him to the airport tomorrow night.
