Stepan watched the girl from his monitoring station at Door 37 of Midas Corp Headquarters.  He could have helped her, but that would have meant leaving his post, and he would surely catch hell for it later.  She was clearly a Daytripper, and thus below Midas’ notice.  She was unsightly, but causing no disturbance.  No orders had come down to remove her, so he was content to leave her.
Instead, he monitored his investments on a secure channel.  He heard from Gina that The Man Himself had sold his shares.  The sale was still secret, but what shockwaves would it release?
