TRAVELLING

San Francisco

United States

The world doesn’t want to be saved. It loves fantasies about superheroes and alien invasions, but it refuses to accept its own power.

book 2/1, travelling, San Francisco

About

The journey kicks off to a bumpy start: Alice slips up, something is brewing within the travelling team, the meeting with a property mogul leaves Alice in a bad mood, the workout with Jazz brings up a painful memory, there is chaos within the teams, and eventually Alice and Tom take a decision which is greeted with a stonewall from the travelling team.

On the flight to Brazil, Leo struggles with jealousy, and he finds himself at the receiving end of Alice’s bluntness when he brings up LGBTQ+. But Alice’s speculations about why homosexuality might be perceived as an intrusion sort of intrigue him — once he starts to follow her argument.

Our modern lifestyles are pretty damaging to our bodies, minds and souls. And that provides the pharma industry with plenty more opportunities to invent new drugs. But really, we don’t have to damage ourselves only so other people can get ridiculously rich. If we want to be healthy, then we have to figure out what’s good for us.

Little.

Extract, chapter 1, San Francisco

Alice talks with Any, head of the security company THE who co-operate with the town project.

‘What are you? My therapist?’
‘Someone has to be. Also, we got to test our security measures and managed to get you to the meeting and back without anyone on the team knowing what you’ve been up to — except Daria. And you got a brief holiday, including martial arts training with Jazz.’
‘That was cool. I got to try out stick fighting.’
‘That’s the spirit. Now you take that, and use it for the job at hand.’
‘You’re right. But why do I feel all whiny and restless?’
‘You dislike having no choice. Tom isn’t helping. And most of your friends are in London. Besides, the travelling team is pretty large.’
‘Tell me about it. Tom still talks about wanting to impress. I don’t want us to impress, I want us to get results.’ Alice exhaled and added: ‘So, why do you want to talk to me?’
‘To see how you are?’
‘Thanks. But I’m sure there’s something else.’
‘Yes.’
