Holmes stood before The Big Boss uneasily, wondering why he’d been summoned and if his job was on the line. He knew that his latest assignment wasn’t going so well, maybe because he identified too easily with the client and found it hard to steer him in a different direction.
Holmes personal life had been a series of missteps and now that he was working for The Big Boss he often felt like he wasn’t up to the challenge, but The Big Boss saw things differently.
“Holmes”, he began, “I think it’s time we tried something different, and I’ve got an assignment in mind that will be just right for you. I am transferring you back to Earth, and I want you to help Emily find a new husband that’s just right for her, she’s been alone for a long time now.”
“What, you… you want me to help my ex-wife find a new husband?” Holmes asked, totally dismayed; The Big Boss just nodded and smiled.”
