Something was happening in front of the building.  Emma tried to check her feeds, something she had added for herself when she built the system.  She couldn’t read them.  Babbage looked at her.  He knew!  How could he know?  And what had he done to Roberto?
“You’ve hacked The City!  I didn’t think it was possible.”  The rest of the board watched in horror.
“Hacking is such an inelegant word for what I’ve done.  I almost needed to make a new City myself.  Sizemore’s access was the last hurdle.”
“What are you going to do?  Crown yourself king?” Babbage laughed.
