I sat down when I realized she had a gun in her hand.
What? What started? Wait, MY dad?
Yes, now let me explain my master plan. MUA HA HA HA!
Well, you see, it all started the day I heard you talking to Felicity about your Dad's job.
Courtney, why do you have a gun??
Courtney began to explain.
I heard you talking to Felicity about how you were working on all kinds of computer hacks that would find criminals so you could help your Dad. I figured, if I dated you for a while, you'd tell me anything I wanted to know. And boy, was I right.
But that day, your Dad went back home for some reason and Mr. Carter had to kill him. Once we got the laptop, it was a matter of applying the clearance codes you had taught me about. Ring a bell?
When you brought me as your date to your Dad's company holiday party, I met Mr. Carter. That’s when we decided to make a plan. I would let Mr. Carter into your family’s apartment with the key you gave me, and he would steal your dad’s laptop.
I can't believe you would do something like this.
The only problem is, your Dad encrypted his laptop with a code that I know only you will be able to crack. So here’s my proposition: crack the code and I’ll be your girlfriend again and I won't have to kill you. What do you say?
