Iz arrived back at her flat in quite a frustrated state. That hadn’t gone according to plan. Well, there really wasn’t a plan she had just seized the opportunity when she saw it. She’d been trying to get to the bottom of question of drone independence for some time now and a disgruntled one almost falls into her lap.
No matter the plans she had with Martin would have to wait, the chance to try and catch out the Habitat was too good to miss. Now how best to do this? Should she take a double test and see if the Habitat really did respect privacy as it claimed to? Give Martin a call and explain her plans? See if the Habitat eavesdropped in on the call? Perhaps not she thought, test one variable at once.
